Show Notes for Thursday, February 18, 2021


Dear John,

My wife told me she didn't want a Valentine's gift, so I didn't buy her anything. Now she's upset with me because I didn't get her anything and she got me something. It was a small present, but it was very nice. She said I should have gotten her something small as well as a gesture. We've only been married a few years and it's always been a big gift at Valentine's Day. This year we both decided that we would skip the presents because we're not financially very good right now. I feel awful now for not getting something small, but that was not the deal. We agreed that we were skipping gifts. How do I make things better now? Would it be weird for me to get her a gift late? I just want to make sure my wife is happy, because she makes me the happiest husband every single day!

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A new study finds marijuana could be helpful to people just starting a business. (

Even as we sleep, our brains are still hard at work processing and going over the events of our lives. Nighttime brain activity often manifests itself as dreams, and every now and again we all experience the occasional bad dream. If you’ve ever woken up from a particularly odd nightmare and wondered if anyone else has experienced something similar, you’re in luck: a recent survey has compiled a list of the most common nightmares. The most common scary dream: the terrifying vision that we’re falling (64.7%). After that, dreaming of being chased (63.3%) came in as the second most common nightmare, followed by dreams of dying (54.9%), feeling lost (53.8%), and feeling trapped (52.4%).

A Florida Woman who repeatedly stabbed her sister with an EpiPen told cops that she was “allergic to drunks” and was simply trying to sober up the victim. Investigators say that Joanna Zielinski, 62, and her sister Laura, 64, were drinking in their Naples home when Laura went to sleep on the couch. Cops say that Joanna “stayed up and consumed more alcoholic beverages and narcotics.” “At some point, Joanna went crazy and attacked Laura with an EpiPen, stabbing her with it multiple times,” police allege. When questioned by Naples Police Department officers, Joanna said, “I’m allergic to drunks, so I injected her with the EpiPen so she wouldn’t be drunk anymore. What’s the big deal?” The injector, Joanna said, was prescribed to her. Medical personnel determined that no medication was injected into Laura due to the way her sister was holding the EpiPen while attacking. The victim, however, was left with a large welt on her right thigh. Joanna was arrested for domestic battery and booked into the Collier County jail on the misdemeanor count.(

A Maryland woman just collected a $50,000 prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket — her fourth big lottery jackpot. The 71-year-old woman told Maryland Lottery officials the $50,000 prize she won from a Bankroll Buck$ ticket came just one month after she won $10,000 from another scratch-off ticket. The woman previously collected jackpots worth $100,000 and $50,000 from scratch-off tickets in 2019. The woman said her previous winnings went toward home repairs, including replacing her roof. She said her latest winnings will go toward helping others.

Designer Matty Benedetto runs the website Unnecessary Invention and his latest doesn’t seem so unnecessary. It’s called HookShot: A hanger that pours you a stiff one as soon as you hang your coat. When you hang your jacket or coat on a hook, a lever tilts a small bottle of booze into a shot glass — which means from the time you close your door on the world to the time the shot hits the spot is likely less than 30 seconds. Sadly, Matty’s Useless Inventions aren’t for sale.

At least they can’t charge him with stealing her heart — because that didn’t work. An accused burglar tried to virtually flirt with a Florida judge while she heard his case Thursday in Broward County, a hilarious moment captured by the court’s live video stream. Judge Tabitha Blackmon, joined by a prosecutor and a defense attorney, called the defendant’s case and watched as he stepped into the camera. The man, Demetrius Lewis, appeared from a county jail and greeted the young judge with a casual, “How you doing?” “All right, I’m good, sir. How are you?” she replied. That’s when Lewis surprised her with words rarely heard in a courtroom. “Judge, you are so gorgeous,” he said. “So gorgeous, judge. I just had to tell you. You’re gorgeous.” Blackmon smiled and thanked him — but also warned him that the compliments would not do anything for the case. “Thank you, Mr. Lewis,” she said. “All right, Mr. Lewis. Flattery will get you everywhere. But maybe not here.” Well, it was a nice try! Without a missing a beat, Blackmon announced that the court had found probable cause to charge Lewis with attempted burglary of an occupied dwelling.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Three blundering South African thieves came up short after they successfully robbed a school principal but then made off with the wrong bag of loot. The men forced their way into the principal’s office at gunpoint and held up the headmaster and two secretaries, piling jewelry, money and the contents of the school safe into a black briefcase. Turning to flee, one of the robbers grabbed the wrong black briefcase, escaping instead with the principal’s bag stuffed with homework.
