Show Notes for Thursday January 17, 2019


Dear John,

I've already given up on my New Years resolution. I'm trying to lose weight and it just seems impossible. I hear you talking about that being your goal too. How is it going for you and maybe you have some tips on how to stay on track. I'm a single guy and I don't want to be a single guy forever. I think my weight is holding me back from finding someone. I have a friend who weighs about 40 pounds less than me and every time we go out together, he's the one the ladies are attracted to. Any advice?

Police have identified and are seeking to arrest a man who was recorded vigorously licking the doorbell of a northern California home early Saturday morning. Investigators say that 33-year-old Roberto Arroyo spent several predawn hours prowling around a Salinas residence. While the homeowners were away, the couple’s children were inside the house. A home surveillance camera captured Arroyo licking the doorbell from different angles. He was also recorded relieving himself in the front yard. When apprehended, Arroyo will face a prowling charge and a theft count (for stealing extension cords used in a Christmas light display). Additionally, since he is on probation, Arroyo will also likely be charged with violating terms of his release conditions. Arroyo’s rap sheet includes prior collars for public intoxication, assault, resisting arrest, and narcotics possession. (


38 days after its initial release in China, the latest movie in the DC Extended Universe has become the only DC Extended Universe release to reach $1 billion. That’s especially impressive when you realize that Aquaman, with just $287.9 million earned so far in the U.S., is so far the worst-performing DC movie domestically after Justice League. Most of Aquaman’s success has from audiences outside the United States. Aquaman also becomes the 37th movie in history to make more than $1 billion at the global box office.

A man who police say placed a 3-foot alligator on top of another man in Connecticut as part of an extortion attempt has pleaded guilty to reduced charges. The Connecticut Post reports 30-year-old Isaias Garcia entered his plea Thursday to unlawful restraint. Garcia originally faced kidnapping, assault, and larceny charges in what police said was one of the strangest cases they have investigated. Authorities say a 21-year-old man called his aunt in April to say he had been kidnapped and his abductor was demanding $800. Police say she received a photograph of him face down in a bathtub, with an open-mouthed alligator on top of him. Authorities later arrested Garcia at a Shelton hotel. He faces up to one year in prison during his sentencing on March 15th.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A British man who was stopped by cops for doing 123 mph down the M62 told officers he was in a rush to get a kebab. Surprisingly, the Roads Policing Unit didn't accept that excuse for the driver doing almost double the national speed limit. And the day got worse for the kebab-loving racer boy, as police also found that he didn't have insurance for the car he was driving - nor did he have a driving license. He attempted to pass himself off as his brother. However, a fingerprint check revealed his true identity and he was slapped with a court summons from police. Sharing the story on social media, the force wrote that man “started speeding as he wanted a kebab from Manchester.”  (
