Show Notes for Thursday, October 01, 2020


Dear John,

My husband and I recently lost our cat. We've been holding out hope that she may still find her way home, but it's been over two months. We've put up posters and we've posted all over social media. Not sure what else we can do. I talked to my husband about getting a different cat, but he is not ready. I miss having our little miss kitty, and I understand that if we got a different cat, it probably wouldn't be the same, but I feel like I have a hole in my heart right now. How can I convince my husband to get on the same page with me? Any ideas?

Signed - CatLover

A Florida Man that was arrested for driving under the influence on Wednesday night told the deputy “you got me,” when he got pulled over. 49-year-old Nick Singer of Naples was caught speeding on US 41 by a Collier County sheriff’s deputy. The deputy pulled Singer over and walked up to his window. “You got me,” Singer said. The deputy noticed that Singer had bloodshot and glassy eyes, and was speaking with a thick tongue. He asked Singer for his driver’s license and he fumbled around and tried to hand the deputy a piece of paper. Singer continued to look through his wallet and then handed the deputy a credit card. After more fumbling, Singer handed the deputy his driver’s license. The driver refused to perform field sobriety tests, so the deputy placed him into handcuffs and was then transported to Naples Jail Center. Singer was cited for driving under the influence and for speeding. He was clocked going 86 MPH in a 60 MPH zone. (

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Police in Racine, Wisconsin are looking to determine not only the what, but the why, after what appeared to be a brain was found on a Lake Michigan beach. Construction worker Jimmy Senda found the supposed brain during a stroll on the beach. He says he typically collects sea glass and other random stuff to use in his artwork. The brain was found in a square package with flowers and what appears to be paper with Mandarin characters printed on it. On Thursday police said the item found was deemed “not consistent with a human brain. … At this time it is unsure what type of animal it is.”

Parents, do you know what makes your kids happy? It’s… YOU. That’s according to a survey (by Associated Press). Researchers asked more than 1,000 teens what gave them the most satisfaction and the No. 1 answer was spending time with family. Hanging out with friends was No. 2. The big surprise? Money and material possessions ranked near the bottom of every teen’s list.

There is a new world record for the tallest Mohican mohawk. Joseph Grisamore, of Park Rapids, Minnesota, checks in with a mohawk that’s over 42.5 inches tall. Grisamore is 6’1″ tall, which puts him and his mohawk at nearly ten feet. Grisamore said that he doesn’t even use that much product. Usually he gets his hair stylist to tease the base so it can basically stand on its own. Grisamore doesn’t always wear his hair high. He’s an essential worker at a health care facility and usually keeps it braided and in two knots so to avoid sitting on it.

How smart is your dog? What words does he know? A study (University of British Columbia) found the average dog knows about 165 words! That’s the same as a two year old child. The two smartest breeds — Border collies and Poodles — have an average vocabulary of 250 words.

As often as it’s seen an used, you would think someone would invent a more interesting toilet paper holder. The reality, of course, is that we just need the holder to do it’s job — hold the TP in place solidly and have it roll smoothly. But if you’re interested in shaking things up in the bathroom, a new show full of re-imagined toilet paper holders is going on at the Los Angeles art gallery Marta. The show, called Under/Over, features the works of more than 50 artists who redesigned the hardware responsible for the thankless, yet essential job of keeping toilet paper at the ready.

Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A neighbor called sheriff’s deputies on some rabid Tampa Bay Lightning fans who were screaming “shoot! shoot!” as they watched Game three of the Stanley Cup final on television Wednesday night. The call prompted several Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies to show up at Devon Garnett’s apartment door. He and two friends had gathered to watch the game at Garnett’s Radius Palms apartment. In the first period, the trio began screaming for a goal, prompting the 9-1-1 call. The caller told dispatchers someone was yelling loudly in the apartment above just before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. “So, they came to the door and thought there were guns in the house,” 26-year-old Garnett told the Tampa Bay Times. “We’re like, ‘Nope, we’re just screaming for Steven Stamkos.’” Deputies went on their way after talking to everyone involved.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Romances go sour, but this one really bombed. A man is going to spend five years in federal prison for using a drone to drop explosives near his ex’s home in eastern Pennsylvania. 45-year-old Jason Muzzicato came to the attention of federal prosecutors last year during an investigation of a series of small blasts that had rattled the community of Bangor. In a search of Muzzicato’s home, investigators discovered a cache of guns and ammunition. The arsenal was a no-no because his ex had a protection from abuse order against him. Muzzicato denied flying the drone but still pleaded guilty in December to two weapons possession counts and a count of flying an unregistered aircraft. (
