Show Notes for Thursday July 11, 2019


Dear John,

I've been working for other people my whole life. I enjoy doing what I do, but recently I started taking photos for people too. I've been working on weekends and evenings to take the photos, then I try to get them edited and ready to send out as quickly as possible. If I quit my "job" it would give me more time to do this... but I've never been without a job before. I don't know if I would have enough work to keep me busy... and more importantly... enough money to make ends meet. Any advice would be appreciated... I want to try this but I'm not good at taking risks. What should I do?

A Florida man who was found in possession of illegal drugs during a traffic stop also had a baby alligator bound with tape in his passenger seat. Deputies pulled over Anthony Richardson in Zolfo Springs last Thursday. Investigators said they searched Richardson and found narcotics on his person. Before deputies could search the car, Richardson told them he had a live alligator in his front seat. Officers located the baby alligator inside a black bag with its mouth taped shut. Richardson told deputies he didn’t have an alligator trapping or hunting license. He claimed a friend gave him the gator, and he planned on releasing the reptile into the river. Richardson was arrested on multiple drug charges and illegally possessing or capturing an alligator. (

The word “Pez” comes from the German word for peppermint. Eduard Haas III first invented Pez candy in Vienna, Austria, in 1927, as an alternative to smoking. And when it came to naming his tiny treats, which were originally a minty flavor, he looked to the German word “pfefferminz,” which means peppermint. He took the “p” from the first syllable, the “e” from the middle syllable, and the “z” from the last syllable to form the word “Pez.”

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
Following a dispute in the drive-thru lane of a Burger King, a Florida teenager yesterday walked into the restaurant and threw a cup of scalding coffee on a fast food worker who suffered burns on her face, hands, and arms. According to an arrest affidavit, 18-year-old Anastasia Lantier entered the Burger King around 10:20 a.m. “due to an issue at the drive through.” Once inside the Seminole restaurant, Lantier got into a “verbal altercation” with Cynthia Crumb, a 21-year-old restaurant employee. During that argument, Lantier allegedly “grabbed a coffee cup that was sitting on the counter” and threw it at Crumb. The coffee--which cops measured at 250 degrees--“splashed all over” Crumb, “burning the victim on her face and hands/arms.” During an ensuing physical altercation, Lantier scratched Crumb, while the worker bit and scratched Lantier. With her mother in tow, Lantier left the Burger King before police arrived. Lantier was arrested on a felony aggravated battery charge for “causing great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement” to Crumb.

A California mother is warning others to lock down their Amazon accounts after her 2-year-old daughter purchased a $430 couch through her shopping app — with just one click. Isabella McNeil had been recently looking at couches on the Amazon app on her cell phone but apparently did not to close the application properly when she handed her phone to her daughter. The mother of two said that last week, her daughter made the impromptu purchase and she didn't know anything about it until the couch was on its way. “I was just so shocked,” McNeil told KNSD. “I thought, 'Did I buy a couch in my sleep?” It turns out 2-year-old Rayna, instead of playing a game on the phone, opened up the Amazon app and pressed on the "Buy Now" button, which advertises purchasing items with just “one click.” McNeil quickly tried to cancel the order, but said it was too late. She told the news station that if she were to return it, it'd cost her a $79 restocking fee, and would need to pay for shipping costs around $100. She's now trying to sell the couch online. (
