Show Notes for Thursday, April 22, 2021


Dear John,

An accountant friend offered to do my taxes for free. She knows this last year was a tough year for my family. How should I thank her properly? Would it be better to give her a gift, or would it be better to send cash? That seems silly because maybe I should have just paid her for her services and we would be even. How do you thank someone who isn't charging you for their services?

Signed – Grateful Friend

A driver was pulled over at 9:00 p.m. and reportedly gave police a false name due to the fact that his license was suspended. However, the name he provided – that of his brother – also returned as having a suspended license. Police also noted that the man’s “mouth was green” and his breath smelled of raw marijuana. He denied having eaten anything, but a small amount of loose marijuana was found inside the car. He was cited for pot possession, falsification, and obstruction. His car was towed and he was taken to a nearby gas station to await a ride from a licensed driver.(

A dozen bodies were once found in Benjamin Franklin's basement. But were you aware of the fact that multiple skeletons were found in the basement of Benjamin Franklin's London home? The bones were discovered during a 1998 renovation of the house and were identified as being from nearly a dozen people, including six children. "The most plausible explanation is not mass murder, but an anatomy school run by Franklin's young friend and protege, William Hewson," wrote The Guardian. That's not to say there wasn't any funny business going on. "The resurrection men could deliver bodies stolen from graveyards to the Thames wharf at the bottom of the street, while there was a weekly public execution at the gallows on the other side of the garden wall," the publication reported.

A 32-year-old Huntsville man was arrested after he threw Molotov cocktails at police and threatened them with a machete and knife. Daniel Joseph Harvey took police on a chase through the streets of downtown Huntsville on the morning of Good Friday, occasionally lobbing Molotov cocktails from his mother's Jeep Liberty. Two of the incendiary devices caused fires on the pavement. The incident started at about 10:40 a.m. when Lt. Mike Sloan, a sheriff's deputy, saw Harvey pull into the parking lot of a temporary holding facility in Huntsville. Harvey has a battery charge pending against him from an incident on Oct. 1 in which he reportedly tried to stab Sloan and threw a Molotov cocktail at him. In the prosecutor's report, Sloan wrote he recognized Harvey from the October incident. Sloan went out to the vehicle to talk to Harvey, who appeared agitated. Harvey brandished a knife, according to the report. Sloan pulled his gun and told him to drop the knife. Harvey sped away and a chase ensued. Harvey stopped the vehicle, lit a Molotov cocktail and threw it out the window at me while I was trying to exit my patrol vehicle," wrote Sloan. Harvey is now in jail and could be charged with attempted capital murder.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Two women sought to use a $1 million bill to purchase merchandise at a Dollar General store in Tennessee. According to investigators, the duo appeared last Monday morning at the convenience store in Maryville, a Knoxville suburb. Their attempt to use the counterfeit bill was thwarted by a sentient Dollar General employee who called the cops. A sheriff’s deputy dispatched to the Dollar General for a “suspicious incident,” spoke with 39-year-old Amanda McCormick who possessed the counterfeit bill. McCormick was accompanied by a relative, 61-year-old Linda Johnson. McCormick told the cop that she received the $1 million bill “in the mail from a church,” but was unable to provide additional information about the purported house of worship's largesse. As detailed in a Blount County Sheriff’s Office report, McCormick had a “shopping cart full of various items from inside the store, including several gift cards to various businesses.” While the incident was classified by the sheriff’s office as “fraud by false pretenses,” McCormick and Johnson were not arrested. Instead, they were “issued a verbal no trespass warning” prohibiting them from returning to the Dollar General store. (
