Show Notes for Thursday, June 25, 2020


Dear John,

I'm having my annual argument about fireworks. Each year my family spends several hundred dollars on fireworks. I've tried to convince my husband that we should scale that back. We're not wealthy people. We have plenty of bills to pay and it would be nice to get ahead a little. He's counting the days to go buy fireworks to shoot off. There are many people in our area who do their own fireworks shows. I'm trying to convince my husband to take this year off. I'd love it if he could just sit with me to enjoy the fireworks that others shoot off. Not only would that save us money, but it would also be nice to spent that time together too. Can you please help me find a way to get him to agree to this? We can't afford to do it this year. Any ideas?

According to an arrest affidavit, a suspect who repeatedly identified himself as “Michael Corleone” was jailed for providing police with a false name. Florida cops allege that 54-year-old James Ransom--carrying open containers of Natural Light beer and Captain Morgan rum--caused disturbance Thursday night on the boardwalk at Indian Rocks Beach. According to a sheriff’s deputy, Ransom was allegedly seen accosting and “yelling loudly at citizens.” After being detained, Ransom repeatedly told cops that his name was “Michael Corleone.” In addition to being charged with providing a false name to law enforcement, he was also cited for disorderly intoxication. He pleaded no contest to both misdemeanor counts. After entering his plea, he was released from the county jail after serving two days in custody. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A school has been forced to apologize after it told pupils to plan their own funeral as homework during the lockdown. Parents reacted angrily after they found out St Paul’s Catholic School in Leicester, England had assigned year eight pupils the morbid task. They were told to choose a style of coffin, type of flowers, favorite hymn, and even their guest list. The youngsters were also asked if they’d prefer a traditional burial or a cremation. Some Parents stated that the assignment was “way over the top” and others added that it would “cause a lot of fear.” They also questioned if it was the best time to issue the homework considering we were in a pandemic. A teacher who saw the assignment wrote: “I wouldn’t do this. Some children can be very susceptible to ideas about death and funerals.” St Paul’s Catholic School has now apologized and said the assignment was given “in error.” (
