Show Notes for Thursday July 18, 2019


Dear John,

I have a “friend” who only reaches out when she needs my help. We worked together a few years ago, now every single time she reaches out, she needs my help with something... usually something that's going to cost me something, or take a whole weekend helping her. She's never asked me to join her for dinner or drinks. I've never been invited to go to a concert with her. I see the photos on her facebook page all the time with her "real friends", but I'm always the one that gets a call when she needs something. How do I tactfully tell her no and try to ease her out of my life? I don't want to be rude, but it's causing me a bunch of anxiety every time I see a message from her. My mom told me to tell her to “take a leap” whatever that means, but I want to be nice about it. Any ideas?

A Florida Man was arrested yesterday after a cop found a mason jar containing marijuana inside a “black Bob Marley backpack” in the suspect’s vehicle. An arrest affidavit does not indicate what else 23-year-old Samuel Antwoine Bryant should have been carrying inside his Marley backpack. Bryant was pulled over around 1:20 p.m. while driving in St. Petersburg after a sheriff’s deputy determined that his car’s registration was expired and that the auto had a broken brake light. Upon approaching the vehicle, Deputy Damarcus Flournoy reported, he detected the smell of pot, prompting a search of Bryant’s ride. The cop discovered “a black Bob Marley backpack” containing a “mason jar with 2 zip lock bags containing a green leafy substance.” Bryant was arrested after a field test on the 42 grams of green substance tested positive for marijuana. He was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, a felony. (

The African bush elephant only sleeps for two hours per day. The African Bush Elephant holds the Guinness World Record for being the mammal that requires the least amount of sleep per day. When researchers at South Africa’s University of Witwatersrand conducted a field study on the giant creatures, they found that the elephants, who sleep standing up, snooze multiple times throughout the day. However, those four or five naps only add up to two hours in total.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
According to a criminal complaint, after her boyfriend said he was too tired to have sex, a Florida Woman allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and slashed him multiple times on the arm and shoulder. The confrontation between 37-year-old Jennifer Lee Chapman and her live-in boyfriend occurred around 5:45 a.m. on Friday in the couple’s apartment in Dunedin, a Tampa suburb. A sheriff’s deputy reported that Chapman and the 36-year-old victim “got into a verbal argument over defendant wanting to have sex and the victim did not because he was too tired.” After Chapman grabbed a knife and cut her arm, the couple began grappling on the kitchen floor. When they briefly separated, Chapman allegedly “cut victim’s left arm and shoulder area multiple times.” Chapman was arrested and booked into the county jail after being charged with aggravated battery, a felony.

The Florida Mother who recorded her young daughter licking a tongue depressor and then returning it to a jar in a dentist’s office was arrested today on a felony tampering charge. 30-year-old Cori Ward was busted in connection with a video she posted to her Snapchat account. The clip was then copied and posted to Facebook, where it went viral and drew the attention of law enforcement. The video opens with a closeup of a sign reading “Please do not touch medical supplies!” Ward then records her 10-year-old child taking a tongue depressor from a jar, licking it, and returning it to the container. The Snapchat post included the caption “Don’t tell me how to live my life.” Ward, seen in the above mug shot, recorded her child in an exam room at the All About Kids and Families Medical Center in Jacksonville. Upon learning of the video, center officials said they disposed of medical supplies in the room, which they then sanitized. (
