Fact check: Viral meme misleads in comparing 'WAP' song, Dr. Seuss book, 'The Muppet Show'

  Fact check: Viral meme misleads in comparing 'WAP' song, Dr. Seuss book, 'The Muppet Show' It is misleading to compare Cardi B's song "WAP" to discontinued Dr. Seuss books and Disney+ content warnings on "The Muppet Show."One meme that has been shared widely on Facebook criticizes the changes made by the companies and claims that Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's hit track "WAP" can win song of the year, while children's books and TV shows require caution.

You won't have to wait long to see a plausible-looking lightsaber in action — provided you're willing to manage your expectations. As The Vergenotes, Disney has unveiled the 'working' retractable lightsaber you'll see when the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser luxury hotel opens at Walt Disney World Resort in 2022. While Disney didn't explain how it worked in the extra-brief video below, patents suggest a motor extends a blade made of LED-illuminated plastic. It won't sever the arms of cantina scum, but it's considerably more advanced than a fixed-shape prop or toy.

The lightsaber will be part of an immersive two-day hotel experience that Disney claims will be unlike anything it "ever created before."

  Fla. Man Arrested After Allegedly Spitting on Disney World Guard Who Asked Him to Put on Mask Kelly Dewayne McKin, 51, is charged with battery on a uniformed security officer after allegedly spitting on a Walt Disney World guard who asked him to put on a mask to comply with the resort's COVID-19 safety protocol. © Provided by People Orange County Sheriff's Office Kelly Dewayne McKin The incident around 10 p.m. Feb. 5 outdoors at Disney's Contemporary Resort near Orlando unfolded as the man, who said he was a resort guest, told the guard "to leave him alone," according to an arrest affidavit.

It's not certain if you'll get to buy the lightsabers, although it won't be surprising if you can. Just be ready to pay a small fortune. The existing Galaxy's Edge lightsaber costs $200, and it's hard to imagine Disney charging any less for a more elegant weapon for a civilized age.
