Show Notes for Thursday, November 04, 2021


Dear John,

I have a bizarre situation happening next door. My long-time neighbor and friend is going through some pretty weird things. Last year his high school friend lost his job. My neighbor invited him to move in with him and his wife and kids. He's been there for about 8 months now. My neighbor's wife is now pregnant with the former best friend's kid. That all happened while our neighbor was working 15 to 18 hours a day to provide for his wife and kids, and the former friend. They're separating now and he needs to find a place to stay. She will keep the house with the former best friend and my neighbor is going to move. Our kids are grown and gone. My wife and I talked about letting him stay here for a bit, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea, for us or for him. If I were in his shoes, I'd want to be as far away as possible. He is a great guy and I feel awful for him. Do you think it's a bad idea for us to invite this messy situation into our home? He's not a bad guy. He's just in a bad situation. What do you think?

Signed – Sad Neighbor

A Wyoming man told police he couldn’t have been driving drunk because his 4-year-old son was behind the wheel when they were pulled over Saturday. The Gillette News Record reports when law enforcement approached an unidentified 39-year-old motorist in the northwest part of the state, he exited his pickup truck along with his 15-year-old son and the toddler. Cops claim that man then told them the younger boy was sitting on his lap and steering as the trio made their way down Wilson Way. The adult in the vehicle was reportedly on probation for a previous DUI arrest. Police say the man had been drinking and also charge that he refused a field sobriety tests and a Breathalyzer. Police arrested the motorist on suspicion of DUI as well as violating his probation and driving without a court-ordered interlock device. A blood sample was taken after his arrest to determine whether the man was intoxicated. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

An NYC e-scooter driver freaked out drivers during rush hour after he was spotted allegedly zipping along the highway at 50 mph to 60 mph. Cellphone footage of the bozo’s joyride has racked up over 34,000 views since it was posted Tuesday to the Twitter account @whatisny. In the heart-pounding 40-second clip shot by a passing motorist, the unidentified speed freak can be seen weaving through traffic on the Manhattan-bound Brooklyn Queens Expressway. The video concludes with the adrenaline junkie — who’s clad in nothing but a white helmet, plain black shirt and jeans — rocketing past a massive truck. Suffice it to say, the reckless rider’s death-defying feat made quite the impression on social media. “That is INSANE,” tweeted one flabbergasted observer. “I expect nothing less from NYC.” “In today’s Darwin Award contestants competition…” quipped another. In addition to being dangerous, the joyride was also highly illegal, according to New York City traffic laws, which stipulate that e-scooters may go no faster than 30 mph in the street. Surprisingly, however, these flimsy-seeming vehicles are allowed on New York State highways, per a law passed in August 2020. The e-scooter rider was not identified in the viral video. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Georgia man has been federally charged with wire fraud after spending most of his COVID-19 business relief loan that he had lied about on a single Pokemon card worth $57,789. Vinath Oudomsine, of Dublin, was supposed to use his Economic Injury Disaster Loan [EIDL] to cover business expenses such as payroll, production costs, debts, or rent — but instead blew nearly all of it on a trading card after lying on his application, according to federal charging documents. Prosecutors said In July 2020, Oudomsine falsely applied for the EIDL, indicating that he had operated a business that had existed since 2018 with ten employees on his payroll and yearly revenues of $235,000. Prosecutors did not indicate what kind of business he purported to own. The Small Business Association deposited $85,000 into a bank account belonging to Oudomsine in August of 2020, the document said. (
