Jul 24, 2014 -- 7:40am

I’m ready to help one of you find love in this morning’s KPOI Missed Connection - are you ready?  And at 7:40, I’ll be giving away another KPOI t-shirt and Soundgarden’s “Superunknown” CD.  Listen and win!

Now for KPOI’s Missed Connection.  You can read the actual ad [here].

And below, it’s contents:

Kaiulani blonde - walking home? - m4w (waikiki)

You: a beautiful blond with a pony tail walking. You had such a friendly look to you!

Me: a handsome guy walking in the opposite direction.

I assume you were walking home and I gave you a little smile, we locked eyes for a second and kept going. We must have looked back at each other 4 or 5 more times as we got further apart.

Why didn't either of us stop and talk? We both missed out tonight and I for one regret not trying to engage you.

This is a long shot but if you read this send me a message. Tell me what you were wearing so I know it was you?

Okay, there’s gotta be a better verification system on these Craigslist posts than “tell me what you were wearing.” Do you remember what you wore everyday this past week?  If someone were to come up behind me, blindfold me and make me tell them what I’m wearing right now … I’d probably get that wrong. Maybe I’m just dumb that way, but all I’m saying is that I’d fail at this missed connection thing because i wouldn’t be able to tell anyone what I was wearing … ever. Also you’re wondering why you guys didn’t stop and talk to each other? Because it was night time in Waikiki-when things sometimes get shady. I don’t blame either of you to keep on walking. In fact, pick up the pace and jog a little. I’m not trying to be mean here … well actually yeah, just a little bit. But I never, NEVER want to stand in the way of love. So Happy Blonde, jump onto Craigslist because your man is ready to engage with you.

And you think that the last place you’d run to if you are being chased by police, is to the cops themselves … well, it happens, people.  It did this week - read the whole story [here].

It’s Wrong Wrong Wednesday and my producer loves the artist and song we’ve got for you today.  But first at 7:40 this morning, your chance again to win Soundgarden’s “Superunknown” CD, and a KPOI t-shirt.  Listen and win!

Now for some lyrical knowledge or confusion, whichever one works for you, brought to you by Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive.”



Waking up to action dust - think about it:  action dust, that’s just another name for radioactive residue … a cool name at that. That’s all there is to it on this one.


And the next time there’s a burglary of fresh, sugary pastry, you may want to look at cars surrounding the bakery’s community.  Turns out doughnuts, yes, you read right, are being used to vandalize vehicles.  Why waste all those precious carbs, right?  We don’t even have a Krispy Kreme on Oahu … conserve the doughnuts!  Read the whole story [here].

And what would you do to get some tattoos?  Would you not drink beer for a whole year?  Well one man did that - but the catch - he got Homer Simpson tattoos.  Yes.  Nothing BUT.  D’oh!  Read the whole story [here].

Now you KNOW you made it big … when you have a mite named after you.  Yes, Jennifer Lopez has inspired a particular water mite.  But it’s for a good reason, really.  Read about it [here].

To the HOT mid 30's hapa man - w4m - 22 (Rainbow Drive-in)

Our eyes met and you put your sunglasses on shortly afterward. What a shame, you are definitely a looker! I was the young asian girl sitting a couple tables away facing you. I just wanted to thank you for being so damn sexy and making my day. ;)

See, this is a classic example of how men and women miss each other’s signals. If you made eye contact with a guy and then he puts his shades on … that means he just wants to look at you more without getting caught. Should’ve walked up to him, and said hi … unless he put on the shades to protect his eyes from all the gravy flying around on his plate. But you said that you’re a young Asian girl and that’s pretty much kryptonite to a guy here in Hawaii-we can’t resist. So hot Rainbow Drive-In guy, take a break from the mac salad and hit up your future woman on Craigslist.

And note to robbers - if you steal a car, don’t call 9-1-1 to get assistance getting back into it.  Read the whole story [here].

Yes, it is mean to have a lemonade stand on a big plane. I’m thirsty but there’s no way to get the lemonade, unless I bought a plane ticket and maybe even a passport. But it’s hard to stay mad, right? Lemonade, whenever we do get a chance to sip it, it brings us such joy, which is why lemonade has to be made by the most beautiful people.

And you thought you saw the mugshots of all mugshots, well, until you saw the one above.  Read why this woman was arrested.  As for the face, well, who knows?  Read more [here].

It’s gonna be another weekend of summer blockbusters - New Planet of the Apes film, Ethan Hawke, Jay-Z, Nicolas Cage - all separate films in theaters today, however I think that would be an amazing cast for a Planet of the Apes film. I will hit you with those new film titles in Friday flicks this morning.  And at 7:40, I’ll be giving away another $25 Gift Card to Jose’s Mexican Café & Cantina.  Listen and win!

A physical education teacher in Florida has been suspended after allegedly giving students twerking lessons. What do you think, is that a little extreme? I say it depends on the type of twerking. If you were having your student twerk up against each other, I could see that as inappropriate but solo twerking… say if you gave everybody a 5 ft twerking radius, I think that’d be fine. As long as it’s not the upside down Michelle Wee twerking… that’s just dangerous. There’s probably worse things a teacher should get suspended for, right? Say if she played dubstep for her students, then that’s just inexcusable. Have her fired.   Read the whole story [here].

Foodland Aina Haina - m4w - 44 (Aina Haina)

I saw you in the sandwich area of the store, you were wearing black workout clothes, I think you had a yoga mat. You were looking at the food, I was ordering a sandwich. I was the painter guy standing next to you. I was behind you in line for a minute but I switched to a faster line, I was on lunch break. You had a Tattoo on the back of your neck. I kept checking you out but no time to really talk, I had to go. But I was interested, you seemed new to the area or Island.

A girl that does yoga with a tattoo on the back of her neck … isn’t that a requirement if you do yoga? Back of the neck or I think a tattoo on the lower back is also acceptable. Otherwise they’ll confiscate your yoga mat. But back to the matter at hand, you were in line with her and then left her for a faster lane - what does that say about your commitment?  I know you were short on time but c’mon, this is love we’re talking about - it has no bounds. Well yoga chick, if you wanna grab a sandwich with this guy, he’s waiting for you on Craigslist. You’ll probably have to wait til after work for him to respond though … he seems like a stickler for work. Don’t painters kinda make their own hours?  I’ve never seen a painter in a hurry. In fact, I usually see them moving pretty slow-probably because of the fumes, right?


This week a guy in England ordered pizza. I know, amazing right? Hold on, there’s more to the story. The Domino’s employee that took his order accidentally tacked on a few extra zeroes when charging his card. Later when he tried to use his card again, he noticed he had insufficient funds because he had been charged $300,000 for his pizza order. $300,000 for pizza and you know what’s the worst part? They forgot his breadsticks. Yeah, that’s the real tragedy here.  Read the whole story [here].

I’ll be educating you on some Capital Cities lyrics in this week’s Wrong Wrong Wednesday but remember all week long, I’ll be giving away a $25 Gift Card to Jose’s Mexican Café & Cantina in my hashstash at 7:40 - so listen and win!

Now for the weekly lyrical knowledge test - this week it’s Capital Cities.


That’s right, if there was a hurricane in France, you’d need all the luck you can get - with that eiffel blowing around. But you, you could be my luck that keeps me safe as hell.

This potato salad thing is getting out of hand and I’m not talking about leftovers from my 4th of July BBQ. On Kickstarter, you know… that site where people can do fundraising for their projects, a guy asked for $10 in order to buy ingredients to make potato salad. This week, this project hit the $40,000 mark and there’s still time to donate before his deadline. So it looks like he’ll have the funds to make potato salad  AND pay for his funeral after consuming all that mayo.  Read the whole fattening story [here].

Bad Grandpa is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today … finally. I’ll hit you with more new titles to download today in Spankin’ New Tuesday this morning.  Then at 7:10, I’ll give you today’s qualifying times for KPOI’s summer boarding pass series  - KPOI could be sending you to San Diego to rock out to Linkin Park and 30 Seconds to Mars. Plus you win the new Linkin Park CD just for qualifying.  Then more winning continues - in my hashstash at 7:40, your chance to win a $25 Gift Card to Jose’s Mexican Café & Cantina.

You ever open a can of food for your dog or cat and think to yourself, hey, this smells pretty good!  Or even, maybe if you think if there was an apocalypse or something and all the food on earth was wiped out except for a warehouse of dog and cat food… you’d definitely eat that stuff right? Well for a woman in Washington … no apocalypse needed. She’s a pet store owner who's pledged to eat nothing but cat and dog food for a whole month. Actually, you know what really smells good, doggie jerky treats. I could do some of that and a cold beer. What time does PetCo open?  Read the whole story [here].

Were you attacked by mosquitos at your 4th of July BBQ last week? Everybody has their theories or urban myths about what attracts them. Right? They love fat people, they hate fat people, what’s the actual truth? Well, according to newser.com, it’s not so much whether or not you’re obese, but more about the chemicals in your skin … so what you eat can affect mosquitos targeting you. Another thing that attracts mosquitos-toe jam. Yeah, I know that hurts since local style, we rock da rubbah slippahs right, but if your feet are a little rank, maybe lace up for your next BBQ and see if there’s a difference.  Read the whole story [here].

Melissa McCarthy vs The Transformers … visualize that for a second … pretty awesome, right?  We’ll find out how the new film “Tammy” did in the box office over the weekend, in the KPOI Hotbox this morning, and at 7:40 I’ll be giving away a $25 Gift Card to Jose’s Mexican Café & Cantina.


So another 4th of July is behind us, which means we have a new hot dog eating champion. The world famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest was held at Coney Island on the 4th of July and Joey "Jaws" Chestnut came out on top with 61 hot dogs in ten minutes. He’s actually not a new champion, he’s held the title since 2007 when he beat that little Asian dude.  So once again, he earned himself the Nathan's Mustard Championship Belt, which might as well be a waist size 32. Why aren’t big dudes winning this competition? I feel like there’s a lot of training going to waste, am I right?  Read the whole story [here].

247wallst.com put out a new list over the weekend of states that drink the most beer.  Top 10 states are as follows:

10. Iowa

9. Nebraska

8. Maine

7. Nevada

6. Wisconsin

5. Vermont

4. South Dakota

3. Montana

2. New Hampshire

1. North Dakota - Per capita consumption: 43.3 gallons

That’s right, Hawaii is not on the top 10. But hey, drinking beer isn’t that important, it’s okay to lose in this list - I’m lying. It’s a very big deal that we are not on this list. Guys, we can do sooo much better. If there’s a restaurant here in Honolulu that will let me host KPOI’s Beer & Nachos night, I promise you, we will band our livers together and crack that top 10 list, if not, take the whole thing. So again, any interested bars out there that also serve up a decent plate of nachos, let’s get this mission underway, call me at 296-1059.  Check out the whole story [here].

Mint Green Range Rover in Aiea - w4m - 27 (Aiea 7-11)

Lol oh my!!! I wish I weren't turning left at the lignt!! You were pumping gas and somehow we caught each others eye!! I'm know there's no way you will see this. But if so tell me what I was driving; and what u did when I turned left I will know it's YOU!

What shade of green is mint green? Mint ice cream is light green but for some reason, a light green range rover sounds insane for I’m assuming it’s a darker green. Anyway, it seems there are positive signals (pardon the pun) to this matchup. The underlying theme is green here. Green range rover, green light (hopefully) which made you turn left, green is also an aphrodisiac so it seems the cosmic forces are pushing you two together. Yeah, I know I don’t usually sound so much like a hippie here but I’m just calling it like I see it. Gas guy, hit reply to your lady on Craigslist and let your love be unleaded.

In the future your 4th of July BBQ checklist might look a little something like this:

Grill - check

Charcoal - check

Super Computer - check

Huh?  Yes,  according to IBM. The company says its Watson supercomputer has analyzed huge numbers of recipes and used its "cognitive cooking" abilities to create a delicious BBQ sauce. You may remember Watson as the computer who went head to head against human opponents on Jeopardy.  Watson uses a database of recipes and then "remixes them, substitutes things, does all kinds of other modifications and generate millions of new ideas for recipes. Watson's creation is called Bengali Butternut BBQ Sauce  and was only bottled for a limited run. I’ll try anything once. But just a warning, if Watson’s BBQ sauce ruins my hamburger, guess what I’m tossing on the grill next.  Read the whole story [here].

With the new Star Wars films being made, fans are going to extreme measures to show their loyalty to the series. A man in England legally changed his name to Han Solo this week. Has his bank accepted his new name? Yep, it’s on his new card. But can he get a passport? No. Han Solo is being denied a passport because his name is based on a fictional character. Ironic, right? A name based on a character who travels all over the galaxy can’t even leave his own country. I guess you could say he’s frozen in his home country. get it? Frozen … just like how Han Solo was frozen in … you know.  Read the rest of the story [here].

Now, before you get offended, by boner, I mean the classic definition: an embarrassing mistake. This song is clearly about a guy that loses his temper way too easily.  Always flying off the handle, a little lion man, you could call him. There’s no grace in him losing his cool. He’s always wrecking things and it’s an embarrassment … a real boner.  

kfc towel

A mother in Newcastle, England was recently horrified when her stepson bit into a deep-fried blue paper towel. He pulled it out of his mouth and when he did, it pulled away the batter - you could see the blue roll inside.  Is that gross? Well, depends on what the wipe was previously used for, right? If anything, this ordeal proves one point … anything tastes delicious when it’s deep fried. Oh wait, lemme end this with a horrible joke. Ummm … hey, KFC, sounds like that was “Finger wipin' good!”  Read the whole story [here].


Okay, this goes out to all of the stay at home moms who tune into us in the morning … you ladies are heroes, first of all. Running a household is no easy task. I give my wife credit for herding my dirty socks to the washer. But if you have some extra time, let this story be of inspiration. I mean, I’m no Oprah, but I found this moving.  A stay at home mom in North Carolina began brewing her own Moonshine during her free time at home. I’m not talking about some prohibition bathtub brew that’ll make you go blind, I’m talking about a professional setup. She named her moonshine Troy & Sons, after her family, and owns her own distillery. In fact, she recently signed a deal with Disney - to carry her moonshine in their resorts. That’s awesome but we need to get it into their theme parks. Imagine It’s a Small World Afterall on Moonshine… now THAT’s a ride.  Read the story [here].

Are you familiar with Adam Richman? He’s the guy from Man vs Food - where he’d do all these insane food challenges. Well he lost a ton of weight, something like 70 pounds and was about to kick off a new show Man Finds Food but was it has been put on hold based on a recent remark he sent to a critic on Twitter and Instagram. He said the following:

"Grab a razor blade and draw a bath. I doubt anyone will miss you."

That’s a little harsh, right? Yeah ABC thought the same thing and that’s why he has no show. Classic example of think before you press send. Personally, even for this little radio show, I get haters. Harrassing me for not playing classic rock - does it bum me out? Yeah, of course. But I can assure all haters, feel free to continue to send the hate mail because I will never say such horrible things to you. Compared to Adam Richman, I treat my haters like gold.   Read the story [here].

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own town, or just taking a ride around town knowing all you see is really yours? This month, if you’ve got a spare $400,000 lying around, that dream could be a reality. Swett, South Dakota went on the market a few days ago and if you purchase it, here’s what’s in this town - bar, workshop, three trailers, single house, and 6.16 acres of prime prairie real estate. Population: 2. Well, 3 if you move there.  Read the whole story [here].

If there's one thing everyone who's ever had a hangover can probably admit to, it's that they'll try just about anything to minimize the anguish. Now, thanks to The "IV Doctor," a service started in December by New York urologist, one's degree of suffering may be at least marginally reduced—for a price. For $250, you can have a nurse come to your home or office and administer fluid by IV, plus a cocktail of drugs to combat nausea (Zofran), heartburn (Pepcid), and headache/inflammation (Toradol). That particular package, called "Revive," is the most popular, and recommended for those on their "deathbed." I wonder if it’s a naughty nurse that administers, the IV? Ah, I guess it doesn’t matter since you’d be too hungover to care, right? She’ll probably look like the nurse in Kill Bill… with an eye patch. So go ahead, pay the $250 for the hangover treatment or you can do what I always do.  Get a Big Mac from McDonald’s, first thing in the morning … and by morning, I mean 2 p.m. in the afternoon.  Read the story [here].

Did you see Transformers over the weekend? There’s a ton of people who did and we’ll take a look at those weekend box office numbers in the KPOI Hotbox this morning.  And speaking of movies, I’ll be giving away a four pack of tickets to the advanced 3D screening of “Planes Fire & Rescue” on Thursday July 17th at 7PM at Consolidated Theatres Ward Stadium 16.

Over the weekend woman in Kansas, was charged with arson after police say she set her home on fire during an attempt to kill a spider,  the woman told officers she used a cigarette lighter to set some towels on fire, hoping to catch the little arachnid with the flaming towels and burn it to death. I don’t blame her for using towels, but setting them on fire? If she was proficient with her towel snapping skills (you know, like how they do in the locker room) no flame should be needed. You know what’s even worse news… there’s no proof that the spider was killed. Imagine that, an entire house burnt down and the spider escapes and ends up spinning a web in the ashes. Next time just use the #1 insect killer… da rubbah slippah… or I guess in Kansas, they’d call it da flip flop.  Read the whole story [here].

So my birthday is a few weeks away and so around this time every year, I put some thought into how I’m getting older and it’s stories like this that give me hope. The awesome thing about elderly folks is that they are always play it cool, no matter what.  Over the weekend in LA, this guy in his 80s,  is at home and he hears some commotion outside his home. He soon discovered his 85-year-old wife Elizabeth trapped in her blue Honda lying on its side. After determining that Elizabeth was unhurt in the freak accident, Neufeld stood aside the car and smiled for a passerby taking a picture.  This photo is going viral and I’ll post it on our Facebook page if you wanna check it out.  His wife just cruising in the car is hilarious … just to see how calm they are. I love our seniors … just not sure if they should be driving.  Read the story [here].

Rush-hour traffic is a pain, but can it qualify you for a disability? According to a New Jersey woman’s lawsuit, she "began to feel great anxiety and depression, which was especially aggravated by crowded roadways experienced during the heavy traffic of rush hour." The anxiety was so severe that it qualified her as being disabled. She was able to get three months of medical leave. Then when she came back to work, she was demoted and eventually fired and now she’s suing but hey, she was able to squeeze out 3 months of disability. Imagine if we got to file disability for rush hour traffic in Hawaii? I don’t think anyone would be at work. Which is why we need rail, I guess? I don’t wanna get into that debate yet, I’m only on my second cup of coffee.  Read it [here].

Giving away the last four pack of tickets to the advanced screening of “Earth to Echo” on Tuesday, July 1st at 7 p.m. at Ward Stadium 16 - happening at 7:40 this morning!

A new Guinness World Record for largest architectural video game display has been broken. The video game of choice... tetris, of course. It was played on two sides of a 29-story skyscraper in Philadelphia.

They used hundreds of lights embedded in the glass facades of the building.

In order to play it, you have to be on a joystick from about a mile away. Geez, I just hope the joystick is cordless.  Read the whole story [here].

I'm not saying you should steal cars. But if you do ... make sure you can drive stick as well as automatic transmission ... just in case. Just like if you're working valet.  This week in Seattle, three teens tried to steal an elderly woman’s car at gunpoint but realized too late that none of them knew how to operate the car's stick shift. Couldn't get the car going and ended up running away... feeling totally emasculated.

This also brings up an interesting fact. Less than 10 percent of new vehicles sold in the United States have a manual transmission. If you're one of the few in traffic this morning,  you must be irritated. Hands are so busy, probably can't munch on that bagel.  Read the whole story [here].

Russia is in the news again. As you know, they're not known for freedom. Vodka and dancing bears, yes but freedom, not so much. So here's what they're doing now ... a new rule is being imposed on their female police officers. Their skirts are apparently getting too short. Read the whole story [here].

Here's the moral of this next story... if you're going to a foreign country ... know how it's spelled. A Washington DC couple has sued British Airways, saying the airline ruined their vacation by booking them tickets to the Caribbean island of Grenada instead of Granada, Spain. Personally I don't see what the big deal is. I'd much rather go to the Caribbean than Spain. In Spain, it's just a bunch of greasy dudes looking to feel up your girlfriend. In the Caribbean, at least it's clean Sandy beaches with sleazy yoga instructors looking to to feel up your girlfriend. See the difference a clean beach makes?  Check out the rest of the story [here].

On the Phone in the Back of a Car - m4w

Not going to say where, but it was last night about 8-9pm last night. I went in the store, and even when I came out I felt a good feeling as if someone was watching me. So I turned around and there you where with a lovely smile staring at me. I opened my trunk to put something inside, and I know you saw what it was because you couldn't take your eyes off of me. Don't know who you were talking to, but I don't care. Just wanted to know if you would like to get together, and share some very intimate thoughts with me.

No photo needed, just tell me what color car I was driving, the location, and what I brought out from the store. Also tell me what you want to do to me, and what you were imagining during that short time. Looking forward to hearing from you, and I hope we can get together sometime.

See, this is a problem that a lot of guys have - you’re moving too fast.  Have you ever been on the phone and find yourself staring blankly at something because you’re deeply involved in your conversation? I know I have. I once stared at a fire hydrant for half an hour while I was on the phone with my college girlfriend. So keep that in mind. And even if she was consciously staring at you, she could’ve been staring at the product you were carrying. You wanna know what she wants to do to you? Probably push you down and grab that XBOX. That’s just an example of course. In either case, I’m not gonna stand in the way of love so woman on the phone, if you’re looking some company in that back seat you were sitting in, hit up your new match on Craigslist.

And note to you dumb criminals - if you’re going to be stupid and log in to Facebook while you are committing a crime, make sure you log off.  Read the whole story [here].

Parking sign typo

And next time you park, make sure you read the signs near you really well.  A “one-minute parking” sign in Los Angeles proved to be pretty confusing for people, and it’s now gone viral.  Read the story [here].

And the next time you think your kid is horrible for faking a cough or fever, or another type of illness to avoid going to the dentist, don’t be so hard on him or her.  A 12-year old French boy faked his own kidnapping to get out of going to a dentist appointment.  Read the whole story [here].

World's Ugliest Dog

And my producer has a self-proclaimed ugly dog (so ugly that he’s cute), but I don’t think he’s as bad as these dogs featured in this week’s World’s Ugliest Dog contest.  Check out the photos and story [here].

And there’s a new team takers of all marbles - a Maryland teen duo won the National Marbles Championship late last week.  Check out the story [here].

Clear your schedule, Liam Neeson has a new film out today, I’ll hit you with more movie titles to check out this weekend in Friday Flicks this morning.  

This week a TV journalist reporting on crime in Oakland became part of the story when she was robbed while on the air.  The journalist’s purse was inside an unlocked news van parked just steps away from the crew and across the street from police headquarters. But when the camera stopped rolling, she learned that someone had swiped the bag. So what did we learn from this story? TV news vans don’t lock their doors so jump on in. I’m kidding.  WHEN I become a TV news reporter, I’m never gonna have a backpack or anything to leave in a car or van. I’ll be the TV reporter rocking the fannypack. Yeah, I’m gonna bring that look back. Plus on TV, you don’t see anyone from the nipples down anyway, right? Fanny packs, folks. Pick one up this weekend … get it in tie-dye if you can.  Read the rest of the story [here].

Match.com is rolling out a pricey new service that's causing some double-takes: It promises to match up clients with people who look like their exes. The premise is pretty simple: People send in photos of their former loves, and facial-recognition software then scans the possible matches available to find a close approximation.  Now, my producer and I don’t see eye-to-eye on this one. She doesn’t see why anyone would want someone that looks like your ex. It’s simple. You were attracted to your ex at some point, right? It was probably their behavior that drove the relationship apart. Personally, I’ve dated actresses in the past and if I were single, I’d love to be with women that LOOKED like some of them … minus the crazy. And if match.com can make that happen, more power to them.  Check out the story [here].

It’s Thursday and that means one thing - I’m helping someone on Oahu find love this morning in KPOI’s Missed Connection.  But first, your chance to win a four pack of tickets to the Hana Hou Picture Show Presentation of the “The Fifth Element” is coming up in my hashstash at 7:40 this morning.

Now for the Missed Connection - read the actual ad [here].

Flight from SFO to maui - delayed - w4m

Attractive and friendly meteorologist from SF on my flight to Maui. We almost got to sit together on the 2nd flight (after the first one nearly caught fire :). I have no idea what your relationship status is but really wish I had the chance to talk with you more and ask ;).

The Sailor Girl

Is that supposed to be a hint or something? Was she wearing a sexy sailor outfit? Nevermind, I’m gonna try and focus here. As much as I’m interested in love, I’d like to know more about that fire on the first flight. I would’ve appreciated a mention of the airline in this one … give the rest of us a fighting chance, you know what I’m sayin? I’m not sure which of you is the meteorologist but in either case, it seems you guys had some type of connection so go ahead and contact your Sailor Girl. It looks like there’s love in your forecast-get it?  Because of the meteorologist thing?

Churro Borough

Did you ever take a bite into a churro and tell yourself, “hmmm, too healthy, I wonder how I can really make this bad for me.” Well look no further. Thanks to the Los Angeles-based  company Churro Borough we now have the The churro ice cream sandwich, a treat both crispy and sweet. The churros are flattened into discs and then paired with one of four signature ice cream flavors—horchata, Mexican hot chocolate, vanilla custard, and Spanish latte. I can’t go on. I’m starting to tear up. Please, just take my money. I’ll take one in each flavor.  Good bye, summer beach body. I was so close.   Read the whole fattening story [here].


I gotta give it up for originality on this story. A Michigan man tried to throw a football loaded with drugs and cell phones into the yard of a state prison.  The throw fell short, with the football landing between two fences, not in the yard where prisoners exercise.

An officer at the Correctional Facility saw the man throw the football, and officers arrested the suspect. A football filled with cell phone and drugs, sounds like the guy was trying to throw a hail Mary jane. Read the story [here].
