The Nose On Laurel Vs. Yanny, 'Cobra Kai,' And Some Big Wedding This Weekend Or Something

May 18, 2018

You remember the dress, right? In case you don't: Three years ago, a poorly-lit photograph of a dress pretty much tore the internet to pieces. Some people saw a black-and-blue dress; some people saw a white-and-gold dress. The black-and-blue-dress people couldn't understand how the white-and-gold-dress people were living their lives; the white-and-gold-dress people called the black-and-blue-dress people "fake news" (no they didn't).

Well, this week there's a new the dress. Except it's a the dress for your ears, not your eyes. It's an audio file. Some people hear the word "laurel." Some people hear the non-word "yanny." And the dispute over which word is right and which word is wrong is very important (no it isn't).

Also this week: There's some sort of big, important wedding this weekend. And the Karate Kid saga continues with YouTube Red's Cobra Kai.
