They are the most hated Christmas songs of all time! What would be on YOUR list?
How many times can you hear "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" or Madonna trying -- but not even coming close-- to best Eartha Kitt with "Santa Baby" before you just scream? The Washington Post has called these two songs, along with Barbra Streisand's "Jingle Bells" and the Jackson 5's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" the "sonic equivalent of a chorus of screeching cats." They are among the most hated Christmas songs of all time -- but they aren't the most hated. The honor of the most hated Christmas song of all time goes to "Jingle Bells," as "performed" by the Singing Dogs, a 1955 Danish record that was reedited and released in 1970.

A Florida man said he was so scared after he watched a train hit his vehicle that he pulled two bottles of liquor from the wreckage and drank them at the crash scene. Authorities said the crash happened around 8 p.m. Thursday at Palm Avenue and South Street. The driver, 43-year-old Danny Lee Wyatt, said he was driving home from a liquor store when he missed the turn for his street and got stuck on the tracks as the train was coming. Wyatt tried to flag down the train’s engineer, but when he realized the locomotive wasn’t going to stop, he got out of the vehicle. After the crash, Wyatt reached into his Kia Rio and grabbed a few things, including two liquor bottles, which he said he immediately drank because he was so scared. Police said Wyatt went home after that but then returned later to speak with officers. Records show Wyatt smelled of alcohol but was cooperative, even though he was upset and crying. Wyatt failed a field sobriety test but refused to supply a breath sample for a blood alcohol test. He was arrested on charges of DUI - third offense within ten years and refusal to submit to a DUI test after a license has been suspended.


With the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, brands are taking advantage of the excitement with all sorts of themed foods and products. The latest addition to the bunch might be the coolest, with Coca-Cola releasing drink labels that have light up lightsabers on them. In an advertisement featuring the labels, Rey and Kylo Ren’s sabers light up blue and red. The illuminating effect comes from a specific type of battery-operated LED. Coca-Cola has wrapped its bottles in a thin flexible OLED panel and electronics, including a battery, allowing images to actually glow.”

Riding a Phoenix, Arizona, light-rail train the day after Thanksgiving, a man abruptly leaped to his feet and wrestled a woman for her wheelchair. The man unlocked the brakes on the wheelchair, then wheeled the struggling woman toward the open train door as she grabbed onto nearby railings. He finally flips the wheelchair, dumping her to the floor, and bolts off the train with it. But video provided by Phoenix police shows other passengers crowd out after him into the station, where they shove him into a wall and retrieve the stolen wheelchair. The wheelchair thief then runs away from the other passengers. Police say the man was “wearing reindeer slippers at the time of the crime.” After release of the video the man was picked up this past Saturday.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
When Jeanne Souron-Mathers died in November, police in Tooele, Utah, were startled to find the body of her husband Paul in a chest freezer at the couple's home. That wasn't all. Police also discovered a notarized letter from Paul stating that his wife was not responsible for his death, according to a search warrant unsealed this week. Investigators now believe that Paul Mathers died a decade ago and are investigating the possibility that monthly payments to him from Veterans Affairs and Social Security kept coming in after his death. Sgt. Jeremy Hansen of the Tooele Police Department said investigators have filed subpoenas and are still awaiting financial records. The VA payments would total at least $177,000, Hansen said. Paul Mathers is believed to have died between February 4, 2009 and March 8, 2009, Hansen said. He had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and was being treated at a local Veterans Affairs medical center, Hansen said, and was last seen there on February 4, 2009. But before he died, Paul Mathers wrote a letter stating his wife was not responsible for his death, and that letter was notarized in December 2008, the search warrant said. "Detectives tracked down the notary and she said she didn't read it, she just stamped it," Hansen said. Sgt. Hansen declined to disclose Paul Mathers' illness. Jeanne Souron-Mathers, 75, died in November from what appears to be natural causes, Hansen added.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Wisconsin woman who called police on Saturday didn't have an emergency or really need immediate help — she was angry about her chicken sandwich from KFC. Authorities responded to a KFC restaurant in Waukesha around 8:00 p.m. on Saturday after an unidentified woman contacted them, claiming the fast-food eatery's drive-thru employee was “giving her attitude.” The ordeal began when the woman ordered a chicken sandwich, but received an incorrect order. KFC staff offered to make her another sandwich, but she apparently refused to eat it. The woman called police while situated in the drive-thru. Once they arrived, she told them she got a new sandwich but “did not feel comfortable eating it, and wanted her money back.” Officers reportedly told both the woman and restaurant staff this wasn't a police issue. As noted by Patch, police similarly responded to the same KFC location in Wisconsin last month when the restaurant's chicken fryer broke — upsetting a customer who had been waiting over forty minutes for food.
