Daily Dirt for Friday, July 5, 2024

I wonder if Travis Kelce has visited all of Taylor Swift’s mansions? Welcome to today’s three thoughts that make up Vol. 995 of The Daily Dirt.

1. When you were young, did you ever get up early on a Saturday to enjoy a whole morning of cartoons? If so, I would guess part of the appeal of those animated classics revolved around the theme songs, right? The following tunes were — and still are — my favorites from those days of yore:

  • Gold medal: “The Flintstones”: Flintstones, meet the Flintsones … They’re the modern Stone Age family … From the town of Bedrock, they’re a page right out of history … Yabba dabba doooooo!!!
  • Silver medal: “The Jetsons”: He’s George Jetson … his boy, Elroy …
  • Bronze medal: “George of the Jungle”: George, George, George of the jungle, strong as he can be …
  • Honorable mention: “Mighty Mouse”: Here I come to save the day, that means that Mighty Mouse is on the way …

Ahhh … good memories.

2. Did you know (Part 57) …

  • Taylor Swift has made numerous noteworthy purchases in recent years, including a mansion in Rhode Island for $17 million.
  • Taylor Swift also bought a penthouse in Tribeca (lower Manhattan, NYC) for $20 million.
  • In addition, Taylor Swift bought a second mansion, this one in Beverly Hills, for $25 million.
  • Taylor Swift also bought a private jet for $40 million.
  • Taylor Swift bought a third mansion — well actually a four-story townhouse — in New York City for $42 million. 

3. The Lake County Captains, the High-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians, recently unveiled a “toilet row” of seats available at their home games. The row includes eight “deluxe high-end” toilet seats placed behind home plate at their home games.

Reading material and games are included behind the toilet seat. Each fan will also receive “personalized” attention from a Captains bathroom attendant who will provide mouthwash, combs and gum.

Steve Thought O’ The Day
Taylor Swift has a $40 million insurance policy — on her legs. No, I’m not kidding.
