Show Notes for Thursday February 27, 2020


Dear John,

I have a new co-worker who just started working here about a month ago. She is younger and kind of keeps to herself. I tried to talk to her one day and noticed that she had earbuds in, so we didn't really meet. I've noticed that she wear the same few outfits. She is about the same size I was before my husband and I went on a health kick a few years ago. I have our guestroom closet full of clothes that would probably look super cute on her. My husband would love me to clear out that space since he uses that room as a man cave. I'm trying to decide how to approach this with her. I don't want her to think I'm being rude somehow. I've never even really talked to her, so this all feels weird to me. Any ideas on this one? Should I just donate the clothes somewhere? Should I slip her a note of some kind? Sorry, this all seems weird. Any ideas?

Signed – ClosetQueen

Upon returning home after an evening of boozing at the bowling alley, Rebecca Duarte “wanted to have sexual intercourse” with her boyfriend. But when Duarte’s beau refused to engage, a “verbal argument began” late Sunday evening. The man told cops that when he went outside the Fort Pierce residence to “get away from Duarte,” she followed him. 23-year-old Duarte first “punched out the front glass windows with her hand.” She then approached her boyfriend and began striking him. After pushing Duarte away, the victim told officers he walked to a neighbor’s house. A cop reported observing multiple windows broken “with shattered glass on the floor.” Additionally, Duarte’s 51-year-old boyfriend had lacerations on his face and shoulder. During police questioning, Duarte was “unable to provide a statement” and could not walk without assistance due to her intoxicated state. “Duarte kept saying ‘I want to call my mom,’” Duarte was arrested for domestic battery after investigators found her to be the “primary aggressor.” (

In Florida, the alleged robber of a convenience store was arrested not long after the crime took place. The employee working at the time of the robbery told deputies she knew the man because the two worked together and had attended training sessions. He was also the former manager of the store.

Authorities are trying to identify a man who stole lottery ticket displays at two locations in the San Dimas, California, area. Surveillance video shows a man in a gray sweater and black hat approaching the counter of a smoke shop before grabbing an entire case of lottery scratchers and then running out the door. About eight hours later, the same man enters a nearby doughnut shop and again grabs the lottery display before running away. Both crimes occurred January 22.

Sea lions can dance to a beat. There are only two mammals on Earth with the proven ability to move their bodies in time with an external beat: humans (though not all humans, to be fair) and sea lions. When researchers at the University of Santa Cruz rescued a stranded sea lion in 2013, they found that she was very smart, and she was even able to learn how to dance. Though parrots can also keep a rhythm, it was previously thought that only animals capable of complex vocal learning could do this.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A bizarre video of a Michigan man appearing to bathe inside of the kitchen sink at a Wendy’s restaurant is raising eyebrows online. “So yeah I’m just gonna tell everyone right now DONT NOT GO TO THE GREENVILLE WENDYS. THIS IS DISGUSTING PLEASEEEEEE SHARE THIS,” wrote Facebook user Connor Somerfield. The footage shows a shirtless man submerged in soapy water inside of the fast food restaurant’s industrial sink, which is normally used to clean kitchen items. “Wash yourself!” a uniformed Wendy’s employee seen on camera says to the smiling man in the sink. “It feels like a hot tub. I’m just enjoying life,” the man later says. Since being uploaded on Tuesday, the video has been viewed 86,000 times as of Thursday afternoon. The Wendy’s franchisee that owns the restaurant, Team Schostak, confirmed that the incident did occur at one of its 56 Wendy’s locations. Company vice president of human resources Christian Camp said “As soon as we learned of it, which was this morning, we quickly got into action and approached every person that was involved. We’ve taken the appropriate steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again.” (
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by
A Florida man with the last name Love got into a shootout with his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend while attempting to break into their home on Valentine’s Day. Police said the victims were sleeping on the couch around 3:00 a.m. Friday when they woke up to the sound of someone attempting to break in through the locked sliding glass door. The woman took their 3-month-old son to a bedroom while the man retrieved his gun and looked outside to see Travis Love pointing a gun at him. The victim fired a round before his gun jammed and Love shot several times as the victim retreated further into the residence, striking him in the right calf. The woman told officers that she and Love dated for five years but their relationship ended three years ago and since then, Love has harassed her and her boyfriend. Police said the screen door and screen panel of the home had been cut and a camouflage folding knife was found nearby. Love was arrested on charges of attempted felony murder with a firearm, armed occupied burglary, aggravated battery with a firearm, shooting into an occupied dwelling and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
