Show Notes for Thursday April 9, 2020


Dear John,

My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We have three children together. We've always had a great relationship, but this last few weeks have been hard! He's working from home now and this is not working well. I discovered that he's a loud conference call talker. Like everyone on the call is hard of hearing or something. He also has this little habit of telling the same joke to everyone he calls that day. It's a different joke each day, but the same one joke per day. I can only imagine how it must be for his regular coworkers. I have been in the same room for a few weeks and I'm not sure if I can take much more. How do you two do it? You're married and work together. I'm sure that has to be difficult sometimes. Any advice for me? Should I tell him he's driving me crazy or not? I love the guy to the moon and back, but there it too much of anything, especially the jokes!

New Jersey officials are bringing formal charges against a man for throwing a house party — an action in direct contradiction with the state's order to practice social distancing. The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office said a 54-year-old man hosted nearly fifty people inside his Ewing Township apartment. Prosecutors are charging the man with two disorderly persons citations. Ewing police broke up the party after receiving a noise complaint around 1:00 a.m. Saturday. The apartment, they said, was approximately 550 square feet, with one bedroom and one bathroom. Upon arrival at the apartment, police “observed 47 people having a party that included a DJ with speakers, alcohol, and the smell of marijuana.” The party, hosted one week after Governor Phil Murphy ordered New Jerseyans to cancel large gatherings through an executive order, also surpasses the CDC's recommendation of limiting gatherings to less than ten people.

Even with a burn ban in place, fire officials in Florida have already seen an increase in fires, including a Saturday blaze that was reportedly sparked by a gender reveal celebration. The fire was caused by a gender reveal using Tannerite and “a weapon,” according to Brevard County Fire Rescue Chief Mark Schollmeyer.

How often should you wash your hair? According to certified trichologist Ky Smith, how often we should shampoo depends on a few different variables, including natural oil production, product usage, and hair type. The key isn’t just frequency, either. It also comes down to the specific products you’re using. Matt Rez is a celebrity colorist and Redken brand ambassador. As a general rule for maintaining hair health, he recommends shampooing no more than two to three times per week.

Newborns don't have kneecaps. This belief is only a half truth, as babies actually technically do have kneecaps when they are born. Those knees just aren't hardened yet, and remain soft cartilage throughout their childhood until they eventually turn into bone.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A New Mexico man is facing charges after police say he bit off a piece of his girlfriend’s finger following an argument over a cell phone in bed. Court records show Isiah Thompson of Artesia was arrested earlier this month for aggravated battery against a household member. According to a criminal complaint, Artesia Police responded to a report of a finger bitten off around 3:30 a.m. The report says an officer found nearly a quarter-inch of Aliah Encinias-Martinez left ring finger missing. She told officers she asked the 26-year-old Thompson to put down his cell phone and go to sleep for the night. After taking the phone from Thompson, the report says he pushed her against a kitchen wall and demanded the phone back. Encinias-Martinez says she threw the phone to another portion of the kitchen and Thompson then bit her left finger. Thompson remains in the Eddy County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A California social media prankster claims he was hospitalized with the coronavirus — just days after posting a video of himself licking a toilet bowl for a nauseating online challenge. The TikTok personality, known as Larz, reportedly posted footage of himself in a hospital bed on Sunday. “I tested positive for Coronavirus,” the 21-year-old from Beverly Hills tweeted on an account that has since been suspended. It comes just two days after the prankster posted a video himself on Friday running his tongue across a public toilet as part of a bizarre — and widely criticized — “Coronavirus Challenge” on social media. The social media influencer has previously appeared on the Dr. Phil show, where he drew criticism for boasting about how he’d licked tubs of ice cream before putting them back in store freezers, and claimed he made “lots of money” from his online following.
