It’s WEEKLY RAPDOWN: WEEK 18 and it’s time to get rid of the winter body.

Did you celebrate May Day? Maybe not if you lived in the US.
After 108 years the Boy Scouts are changing their name
And after 116 years, music’s beloved Gibson files for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection

Moscow, MAGA hats, and much more this week, check it out…

LYRICS

So it was
May Day – Labour Day
Everywhere but the United States.
The world was invested, but in Paris
Hundreds went rampant and got arrested
The next day Bangkok protested
Apparently their gov’t was never elected.
Nigeria bombed from Haram. Bombings
Occur in Kabul and Tripoli. And they’re

stirring the movement as holy. As we’re
learning of who is controlling. Syrians
bury the innocent only. Many
women and children are dying mostly.
But Korea’s at peace.
Breaking bread with no set backs
Thousands of Moscovites flooded the streets.
Throwing airplanes to bring back a text app

So lets snap… to Western drama
Another teacher’s strike in Arizona
20 years max for leaving your kids in the
car to teach them a lesson, momma!
Gibson guitars might be done-ski
100 years now bankruptcy
The coral reef is an important thing so
Hawaii says goodbye to certain sunscreen.

9 dead, plane crash Savannah
Students protecting the 2nd amendment?
Boy Scouts are changing their name to Scouts
BSA so girls can be represented
The Daytime Emmys loved Brady & Harvey
Days of Our Lives is still in tact
And a NY judge ruled that it was OK to ban
Not joking, check my sources in the YouTube description.
