Our top stories today are about: Google’s new AI search tool suggesting that people eat glue with their pizza (among other massive fails), conservatives likening the Pope to the devil, whether or not Rudy Giuliani used the bathroom while getting arraigned via Zoom, and a McDonald’s customer sharing a glitch that can get you free food on the app.  

After that, we’ve got a fun edition of “Meme History” for you.
