Boner Candidate #1: THIS IS HOW WE DO IN UKRAINE

A plastic surgeon in Ukraine has been slammed for taking selfies with his unconscious patients while performing surgery. Edgar Kaminskyi, 31, has been a plastic surgeon for eight years, but his practice of taking photos while his team operates on their patients is what has attracted the most attention. The surgeon often shares the photos with his more than 104,000 Instagram followers, including before and after images of women with breast implants and the silicon implants themselves.

Boner Candidate #2: YOU WILL BE A RUN-OVER DUMB ASS

A fire department captain in South Carolina’s capital has been dismissed for posting on social media that he would run over protesters if they were still blocking traffic when his shift ended. News media outlets report that Capt. Jimmy Morris, a 16-year veteran of the department, was fired Monday over Facebook posts about Black Lives Matter protesters. Protesters closed an intersection near the Statehouse and prompted the closing of a small section of Interstate 126, a thoroughfare into Columbia, late Sunday. There were no arrests, injuries or property damage reported.

Boner Candidate #3: I’M SURPRISED ANYONE NOTICED A CHANGE IN THE CANADIAN ANTHEM

A member of a Canadian singing quartet changed a lyric in his country’s national anthem and held up a sign proclaiming “All Lives Matter” during a pregame performance at the 87th All-Star Game on Tuesday. The Tenors, a group based in British Columbia, caused a stir at Petco Park with Remigio Pereira’s actions while singing “O Canada.” In a statement issued during the game, the group blamed the changes solely on Pereira, who held up the sign and sang the altered lyrics while the other three singers wordlessly harmonized. The band said Pereira won’t perform with The Tenors “until further notice,” calling his actions “disrespectful” and “shameful.”

Boner Candidate #4: SOMEONE HAS TO CARRY ON THE RACIST TRADITION IN SOUTH CAROLINA

To no one’s surprise, an Iowa congressman who complained about Harriet Tubman being the face of the new $20 bill, and who defended South Carolina’s display of the Confederate flag, has that very same racist flag sitting on his desk. Rep. Steve King, an Iowan Republican (and not the guy who writes the scary books), has bravely decided to carry the mantle of racism in a state that directly fought against it. When a video featuring King aired Friday during a segment about immigration on a local news channel, a small Confederate flag could be seen on King’s desk, as the blog Iowa Starting Line points out.

Boner Candidate #5: REMEMBER THE HOLOCAUST AND CATCH A POKEMON

Are there places where Pokémon should not be allowed to tread? The digital creatures, which appear overlaid on the real world as part of the hit smartphone game Pokémon Go, have been reported at the former concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. and the National September 11 Memorial in New York, provoking frustrated responses from the representatives of some of the sites. A spokesman for the Auschwitz Memorial said that any presence of the game there, or at any other memorials and Holocaust museums, was “absolutely inappropriate.”

Boner Candidate #6: PATRIOTIC CELEBRATIONS CAN BRING OUT THE BEST IN US.

Sparks are flying at City Hall over money spent on Kaysville’s Fourth of July celebrations earlier this month and who will ultimately end up footing the bill. At times shouting and pointing at fellow council members in a City Council meeting Thursday, Dave Adams berated his colleagues for scrutinizing his use of an estimated $5,000 in city credit card expenses to help prepare for the event. The issue? Some of the money was spent on repairs to Adams’ personally owned fire truck, “Big Red,” which has been used for the past 10 years to soak onlookers in Kaysville’s popular Fourth of July parade.
