Show Notes for Thursday February 13, 2020


Dear John,

First of all, congratulations on 20 years. Very happy for you two. I'm also celebrating 20 years later this year, but I hope I can make it that long. My wife is pretty upset that I am not able to have lunch with her on Valentine's Day. Let me explain. Between dating and marriage, we've been together over 20 years. We've never gotten together for Valentine's Day at lunch time. We've always had plans for dinner, and we do for this year too. Last week I accepted a project at work that requires me to meet up with a team of people and they picked this Friday for our lunch meeting. I'm pretty sure none of them even realized that it was Valentine's Day. I know I hadn't connected that at all until my wife asked me to go to lunch with her on Valentine's Day for the first time in 20 years. I told her I had other plans and things have been pretty rocky ever since. It's not a date. There are two females on the team and one other guy, so she thinks we're going on a double date. I think I keep digging myself deeper into trouble when I try to explain things. Do I just call in sick on Friday? Do I tell everyone else on the team that I need to reschedule? Do I just go to the meeting since it's all very innocent?

A man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Anaheim after he struck a sign and kept driving with it on his car Saturday night, the Anaheim Police Department said. The car struck the sign on a freeway off-ramp and “kept driving with its new hood ornament,” the department quipped in an Instagram post. The driver kept going until he was contacted by officers and taken into custody. Police said Saturday’s DUI arrest was the driver’s fourth in the past ten years. A photo showed the broken sign resting on the car’s roof and covering part of the windshield. Authorities did not identify the suspected drunk driver and no further details were available. (

FUN FACT FOR YOU: Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

Our European ancestors were cannibals. In 16th and 17th century Europe, cannibalism was actually a fairly common practice, and it was all for medical purposes. The practice seems to have started because Egyptian mummies were thought to have magical curative properties—so they were ground up and put in many remedies. As the idea evolved, human bone, blood, and fat were all used in medical concoctions. Got a headache? Crush a skull and make it into tea! While medical cannibalism has fallen out of favor, modern medicine still sometimes uses one human body to heal another in the form of blood donations, organ transplants, and skin grafts.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Pamela Carr’s husband delivered some stunning news Sunday morning: He wanted a separation after nine years of marriage. The 68-year-old Carr’s response was equally shocking: She pulled out a taser and repeatedly zapped her 73-year-old spouse. As the couple argued over the separation, Carr “pulled out a taser and drive stunned him several times,” according to a criminal complaint charging Carr with aggravated domestic battery, a felony. The court filing does not indicate whether Carr’s husband was injured as a result of the tasing in the couple’s Clearwater home. Carr was released from the county jail Sunday night after posting $1,000 bond. A judge has ordered her to have no contact with the victim. She will be allowed a one-time visit--in the presence of a law enforcement officer--to retrieve her belongings from the couple’s residence in the Serendipity mobile home community. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Utah man faces criminal charges after reportedly releasing rodents in at least three different hotels in order to obtain free lodging from the unassuming businesses. Authorities say that Ryan Sentelle State recently admitted that he has freed mice and hamsters in his room at various hotels, complained about the pesky critters, and then enjoyed the room at no cost. Though police believe 37-year-old State successfully executed the stunt in at least three hotels, they believe it “likely occurred at many more” as well. According to a statement of probable cause, State would cite the feces left by rodents to make his case for free accommodations. As a result, police say his criminal methods damaged several hotel rooms. The exploits also came at a cost to hotels. Each business must contact pest control services when rodents and feces are discovered inside. State faces five class B misdemeanor charges with three counts of criminal mischief and two charges of theft by deception. (
