Dolly Parton tells an elaborate 'origin story' about her breasts and everyone falls for it
Dolly Parton once said, "When all else fails, I just do a boob joke." And that's precisely what she did when she came on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  Ever the storyteller, Parton asked if she could tell Fallon a story. The yarn that ensued was about a man who scammed her while she was out eating food with her family.  "We were in the restaurant, we were having our meal and this old man came over to our table," Parton began. After the man left, Parton went up to pay the bill and a man said, "Your grandpa left his bill here too."  "So that old man had come over and kind of scammed us," she added. Parton paid the man's bill but the story didn't end there. As she was walking down the street, she spotted the man and confronted him. But when she did so, he began hitting her on the chest with his walking stick.  Read more...More about The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Fallon, Dolly Parton, The Tonight Show, and Culture

Nine reasons why the stock markets are far too optimistic
As global economic risks deepen and multiply, equity values rise further - is this what’s called a ‘melt-up’?This past May and August, escalations in the trade and technology conflict between the US and China rattled stock markets and pushed bond yields to historic lows. But that was then: since then, financial markets have once again become giddy. US and other equities are trending towards new highs, and there is even talk of a potential “melt-up” in equity values. The financial-market buzz has seized on the possibility of a “reflation trade”, in the hope that the recent global slowdown will be followed in 2020 by accelerating growth and firmer inflation (which helps profits and risky assets).The sudden shift from risk-off to risk-on reflects four positive developments. First, the US and China are likely to reach a “phase-one” deal that would at least temporarily halt any further escalation of their trade and technology war. Second, despite the uncertainty surrounding the UK’s election on 12 December, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has at least managed to secure a tentative “soft Brexit” deal with the EU, and the chances of the UK crashing out of the bloc have been substantially reduced.
