End Times Update 4/10/2021: Prince Philip, DMX, and Yahoo! Answers

Northern Ireland, Prince Philip, Jordan Peterson vs. Captain America, Steve Harvey, James Charles, Scott Rudin, and Yahoo! Answers.

Every week one of Popdust's disposable clones — grown in a vault deep beneath the Mojave desert — is exposed to the outside world through a relentless feed of news, pop culture, and social media.

The arduous process accelerates their dissolution back into an amorphous clone slurry. But before they go, they leave behind a document of what they've absorbed and what they've learned — a time capsule preserving a single moment in the slow-motion collapse of civilization. An End Times Update...

Meghan Markle Should Absolutely Not Run for President

Would she be good at the job? Maybe. But the campaign would be a political nightmare...

This week author Tom Bower — who reportedly signed a six-figure book deal to write an unauthorized biography of Meghan Markle — spoke to British tabloid Closer about the Duchess' prospects in American politics.

He's tired of guys like him and all the white men in his audience getting pushed around and shamed by the rich jerks with all the power.

The tell-all interview revealed some troubling secrets about the royal family but didn't even scratch the surface. In the days following, the internet has been aflame discussing the implications of the interview on the royal family — will this be the thing that finally k*lls Prince Phillip — and recreating Oprah moments on TikTok.

Piers Morgan Just Canceled Himself Over the Meghan Markle Scandal

The professional blowhard has announced that he's leaving Good Morning Britain.

Piers Morgan has referred to cancel culture as "one of the very worst things about modern society."

And that heightened, hair-trigger sensitivity to criticism might explain how he sensed what was coming down the pipeline. Because an earlier version of this article was going to announce his official induction into the Cancelation Hall of Infamy, AKA the Cancel Canon, from which no career shall ever be revived (except Mel Gibson...and Alec Baldwin...and most of the other people who have supposedly been "canceled").
