Show Notes for Thursday, March 07, 2024


Dear John,

My friend Jenny and I have been friends since college. There's nothing sexual at all. We're just good friends. Well, a couple of weeks ago I went out with a bunch of guy friends and we all decided to get tattoos on a whim. I didn't really want one, and couldn't decide which tattoo to get, but I have always liked Jenny's tattoo and decided to copy it. So I got a rabbit tattoo and showed the artist a picture of her tattoo for a reference point. The next day, I liked it, and was excited to surprise her with it. Today, we had lunch together. After we ordered, I showed her my tattoo. She didn't like it. At all. Jenny's rabbit tattoo has a special meaning to her: It was done in memory of her late grandfather. She told me the sentiment is ruined now that he copied it without asking. She is actually mad about it. I explained that it reminded me of her so it was very meaningful to me too. I feel bad that she is upset, but I don't think I did anything wrong. I mean, she doesn't have a right to exclusivity on a tattoo. Isn't she over-reacting? I think she owes me an apology. Am I wrong?


Tattoo Too

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

How much are you willing to spend on a first date? If you fall in the age category of Gen Z or millennial, chances are the answer is about $50, maximum. British fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing found that 60% of Gen Zers said they wouldn’t spend more than $50 on a first date, and a whopping 96% of millennials said they also wouldn’t spend more than that. An experts said this frugal dating trend is part of the younger generation’s move toward experiences rather than material items, noting: “You can set up a romantic dinner date under the stars at a beautiful park for less than $50, and have the most extraordinary experience.” It’s also an indicator of the financial realities that many Gen Z and millennials face.

When it comes to your job, money talks, but gratitude goes even further. A new study has found that while many workers say pay raises are the “most meaningful” form of appreciation in the workplace, even more would appreciate a simple “thank you.” The poll of 2,000 employed Americans found 55% prefer having personalized forms of gratitude given to them in the workplace – while 52% said they’d prefer a raise. The OnePoll survey revealed 2 in 5 people don’t feel appreciated by their bosses for the work they do. And instead of gratitude or a raise, 28% said they’d just like a promotion.


Reba McEntire is clearing up a rumor — and urging fans not to fall prey to scam that falsely claims she’s endorsing a gummy business. On Instagram, McEntire shared a screenshot of an article that claims she’s leaving her coaching role on “The Voice” after an “accidental ‘live’ confession on-air.” There’s no truth to the story, which she emphasized by adding a big red “FALSE” stamped over the photo. Her caption reads: “Please do not click on any articles that say I am leaving The Voice. This is not true.” The rumors are tied to a scam hoping to trick fans into buying a supposed weight loss gummy product, which they claim McEntire is selling. LINK:

Mathew Perry’s X account was hacked by scammers trying to pull off a crypto donation scheme through a fraudulent website, says his foundation. A link that was recently advertised as directing would-be donors to make contributions to the late actor’s foundation actually led to a copycat site — but The Matthew Perry Foundation wasted no time calling out the scam as totally bogus, and has regained control of his socials. It also clarified in an IG post that is the only legitimate site associated with the foundation.

Eugene Levy has joined “Only Murders in the Building” for Season 4. The “Schitt’s Creek” actor will play a recurring role, said to be integral to the twists and turns of the upcoming season’s investigation. Levy joins recent additions Eva Longoria and Molly Shannon for Season 4 of the Hulu murder mystery comedy series.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A survey finds that Americans only drink half as much coffee as they did 60 years ago.

If you’re grabbing a quick meal, why force yourself to decide between fried chicken and pizza, when you can have both? This week, KFC debuted the “Chizza” in the US. First introduced in the Philippines in 2015, the Chizza consists of 2 white meat chicken filets lathered in marinara sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni. So, basically pizza with fried chicken instead of dough. While the company is not specifically saying whether this is a limited-time item, it did recommend that you “Try it while you can!”


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

Studies show that when people fall in love, they lose an average of 2 close friends.

Humans cannot walk in a straight line without a visual point – When blindfolded, we gradually walk in a circle.

Frogs sometimes eat enough fireflies that they themselves glow.

It would take about 3 years of non-stop pedaling to ride your bike to the moon.

The chess term “checkmate” is from the 14th-century Arabic phrase, “shah mat,” meaning “the king is helpless.”


Question: 18% of people say they clean THIS less that once a year. What is it?

Answer: Their freezer

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A woman in Ireland lost a more-than $800,000 injury lawsuit stemming from a car crash — after photos showed her launching a Christmas tree during a post-holiday competition – and winning the event. 36-year-old Kamila Grabska sued an insurance company after a 2017 crash, which she claimed caused her debilitating neck and back pain that prevented her from holding down a job. But newspaper reports surfaced of Grabska competing in a Christmas tree-throwing event about a year after the accident supposedly left her with “disabling” pain.” The competition involves people throwing 5-foot spruce trees as far as they are able. The judge said: “I’m afraid I cannot but conclude the claims were entirely exaggerated”.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


Peanuts: Growing them demands very specific temperatures, with anything over 86°F (30°C) considered too hot. Warming temperatures are making peanut regions too hot.

Chocolate: The warming climate is leading to a shortage of cocoa and making it more costly to produce.

Vanilla: More than 80% of the world’s vanilla supply comes from Madagascar. The problem? Deforestation and problems with workers there are putting at risk the vanilla exports that so many products depend on.

Sand: I know, right? But actually, there are only a limited number of places where sand that’s suitable for concrete can be found: mainly in rivers and lakes. Sand from deserts is too fine.

Antibiotics: Our bodies are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics and limiting their effectiveness. This comes from overuse, so a shortage, as seen somewhat during the pandemic, might not be completely negative for us.
