Show Notes for Thursday July 26, 2018


Dear John,

I have an emergency. A very sweet co-worker wants me to sing a duet with her at our company's Summer Social. It used to be a Summer Picnic, but they hold it inside now and made it more of an event with an entertainment stage and we do a silly “Company Idol” where people from our company get up and sing. The problem I have is two fold. I'm not comfortable getting up in front of a bunch of people unless I'm drinking, and the last time I went out with this friend for karaoke, she was an awful singer! She needs to turn in our registration next week if we're going to do it. How do I get out of this? Should I talk her out of it too?

A South Florida woman and her husband called Texas authorities last
week after someone stole tires from their tractor-trailer, but they wound up in jail after deputies found almost $2 million worth of methamphetamine inside the truck. 45-year-old Bianca Roba and 48-year-old Dan Roba are facing charges of drug possession. Deputies said the Robas reported a theft from their 18-wheel tractor-trailer around 7:00 a.m. Friday outside of a truck rest area along Interstate 10. When deputies arrived, they found some of the tires had been removed from the tractor-trailer, but also noticed irregularities on the vehicle. They eventually discovered hidden compartments containing about forty-three pounds of meth.(

A man in Texas strapped a washing machine to the hood of his SUV and drove with it that way. Someone spotted the SUV at the Stripes convenience store across from Dyess Air Force Base and called the Abilene Police Department. Police told KTXS that they tracked the driver down at his home in the 6100 block of South 7th. Street and let him off with a warning instead of giving him a ticket. If they would've issued the driver a ticket, police said it would have been issued for “obstruction of operator's view or driving mechanism.” The man told police he was “going to sell it.” (

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
A bungling thief in England has been filmed falling through a garden fence as he tried to steal a two-foot gnome. Hilarious CCTV footage shows a man in his 20’s walking along a path before sneaking into the side of a house. He emerges moments later carrying the large garden ornament. However, he buckles under the weight and crashes through a neighbor’s trellis fence as he tries to make his escape. Not to be defeated, the thief makes his way to his feet, clutching onto his loot, and then calmly walking away with the gnome under his arms. Sadly, police said the gnome was later found destroyed outside a nearby block of flats. Northamptonshire Police released footage of the incident in a bid to catch the suspect. A force spokesperson said: “At the time of the offense, the gnome was wearing a red hat and blue jacket.” (
