Show Notes for Thursday, April 29, 2021


Dear John,

My parents divorced last year. They waited until I graduated and moved out. I'm the youngest of 4 kids. We've always spent Mother's Day at my parents house for with my mom and my dad's mother too. This year I feel pulled in two directions. My dad is throwing a fit because I'm going to be with my mom on Mother's Day. He wants me to be there with him and his mother. I love my grandma dearly, but I think I need to be with my mom for this. It's her first Mother's Day alone. She decided to move, so she's in a small apartment. My dad is in our family home. His new girlfriend now lives there with her youngest daughter. My dad is making me feel guilty for missing out on this when his girlfriend's daughter will be there. Well, she lives there! I'm picking my mom's side for this, but I feel bad. Any advice to help me not feel like a bad granddaughter? Is there a way I can make everyone happy?

A drug-runner’s fluffy white cat was caught trying to smuggle narcotics into a prison in Panama. The feline felon was carrying the contraband in a pouch tied around its neck when it was stopped outside the Nueva Esperanza Prison in the province of Colon on Friday, AFP reported. “The animal had a cloth tied around its neck” that contained wrapped packages of white powder, leaves and “vegetable matter,” said Andres Gutierrez, head of the Panama Penitentiary System. The substances were likely cocaine and marijuana, according to another official. Local prosecutors said they had opened an investigation into the use of animals for sneaking illegal substances into the Nueva Esperanza facility, which houses more than 1,700 prisoners. Meanwhile, prosecutors said the criminal cat in question will be taken to a pet adoption center. (

Some people have an extra bone in their knee (and it's getting more common). If you were under the impression that the human body had finished evolving, think again. It turns out that some people have a bone in their knee called a fabella. And while this particular little bone with an unknown purpose was once fading away, over the last century and a half, it's gotten more common. Back in 1875, nearly 18 percent of people examined had a fabella. That number dropped to 11 percent by 1918. However, by 2018, 39 percent of individuals had this mysterious bone. presents A NEWS HEADLINE... FROM SOMEWHERE IN THIS WORLD!

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Police responding to a report of an intruder at a California home broke down the front door and stormed the house to find the suspected burglar was actually the owner's robot vacuum. Yana Sydnor said she and her 2-year-old daughter were sleeping at their Natomas home when she was awakened by a sound she thought was an intruder in her home. “Say about 1:00 a.m., I hear over my meditation music, ‘Boom, boom, boom,’” Sydnor told KOVR-TV. Sydnor said she texted friends to tell them there was a burglar in her home. “I was like, ‘Hey, someone is in my house,’ and they were like, ‘Call the police.’ I was like, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, call the police.’” Sydnor called 9-1-1 and hid in the bathroom with her daughter. She said she heard police break down her front door moments later, followed by the sound of laughter. The police discovered the suspected intruder was the family's robot vacuum. “My son turned on the vacuum cleaner because he didn’t want to do chores before he left for the weekend. We hadn’t used this vacuum in almost two years. It went down the stairs,” Sydnor said.(
