The Weekly DownLloyd: Back from vacation edition

May 2, 2014, 2:18 AM | Updated: 2:19 am

As the producer of Mac & Gaydos, this is my own unique, weird, wacky and, at times, warped look at the week’s seven biggest stories.

Guys cuddle

It’s no shock to me that most men have shared a bed with another guy at some point. Vacations happen, guys are cheap, it makes sense. But a new study claims most guys have spooned or cuddled with another dude! What?!

I’m all for a good bro hug every once in a while, but spooning with a guy? Hey, if that’s your thing, good for you. But I find it hard to believe most guys are up for that.

Big fast food bill

Think about how much you spend on fast food each week. If you’re going twice a week, you’re probably shelling out about $1,200 a year on the greasy goodness.

Does Chipotle count as fast food? If it does, I’m right there with $1,200 a year. Maybe we really are living in a fast food nation — quick, convenient and fattening.

Divorce is like the flu

Have a good friend who’s gotten divorced recently? That means you’re more likely to get divorced. And just like the flu, a study says it’s not just your friends. Even friends of friends getting divorced could make you more likely to call it quits on your marriage.

What is this world coming to? If I say the word “divorce,” does that make it more likely a couple will get split up?
