Welcome back, everybody. We begin "Pop news" this morning with Sandra bullock, surprising the graduating class on Monday, with an inspiring speech. She is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities. She snuck on to the stage of the school, that she adopted after hurricane Katrina, urging graduates to get out there and, quote, stop worrying so much. I don't remember any of the moments of my life when I worried. Go find your joy. It's not the worry. It's not the what IFS. It's the joy that stays with you.

Happy may terrify your children into never eating McDonald's again. And on Twitter, he's an effective deterrent for appetite and sleep. Spongebob was very popular. And he was square. He didn't have an annoying mouth. McDonald's created grimace, who was originally an evil character. Now, he's a beloved plush toy. A great golfer. That is "Pop news" on this gorgeous Tuesday.
