Hobby Lobby smuggling looted Iraqi antiquities and possibly funding ISIS in the process? Gotta admit I didn't see that curveball of a story coming.

I like how they act like they are ignorant to what was going on.

"We should have exercised more oversight and carefully questioned how the acquisitions were handled," Hobby Lobby President Steve Green said in the statement.


Then there is this:

"In October 2010, an expert on cultural property law retained by Hobby Lobby warned the company that the acquisition of cultural property likely from Iraq, including cuneiform tablets and cylinder seals, carries a risk that such objects may have been looted from archaeological sites in Iraq," the DOJ said.

"The expert also advised Hobby Lobby to review its collection of antiquities for any objects of Iraqi origin and to verify that their country of origin was properly declared at the time of importation into the United States. "


I'm not sure why no one was charged with a crime.

Halfway through the Missing Richard Simmons podcast. 107% chance he's a vampire now, right?

Finished, and I changed my mind- he was Bruce Willis the whole time.

Also I love Richard Simmons.
