18 Year-Old Scotch…For The Kids?!!

18 Year-Old Scotch…For The Kids?!!

-Think you’re having a bad day? The residents of Gulf Shores, Alabama residents are being warned not to leave their flooded homes because of 12-foot alligators are swimming outside of their homes. Tina Bennett shot video of a massive gator swimming in front of her picture window. The beast eventually turned around and swam into her neighbor’s driveway. Residents are being warned not to feed the gators…on purpose or by accident!

Adrienne Long, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is going to attempt to set a new world record for the longest tree hug. She is performing the stunt to raise money for the Chattanooga Audubon Society. Long will start hugging a tree at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning. She needs to embrace the tree for eight hours to break the record. And even though she’ll be hugging the tree for 8 hours, she just wants to remain friends. (WRCB)

How about this for a nominee for Father of the Year…Pete Robson of Somerset, England, gave his son, Matthew, a bottle of Macallan 18-Year-Old Single Malt scotch every year — starting at birth. Year after year, Pete bought a bottle of Macallan 18, along with instructions to not open it. Well, Matthew is now 28 years old and has this amazing collection of whiskey… valued at $50,000. Matthew followed his dad’s instructions. He didn’t open the bottles. Instead, he’s auctioning off his collection — and using the money as a down payment to buy a house. So if you’re headed to that child’s birthday party this weekend…I’m sure they’d love a bottle of Scotch or a tall bottle of Kettle One….let me know how that goes over. (Food & Wine)

Lipstick On The Hamster?

Lipstick On The Hamster?

A Wisconsin beachcomber discovered what appears to be a brain that had washed ashore on Lake Michigan. Jimmy Senda found the package, wrapped in aluminum foil, fastened by a pink rubber band. Also in the parcel were flowers and Chinese money. Cops don’t think the brain is human, but is waiting for a medical examiner’s confirmation. (I think the brain belongs to Abby Normal…those of you familiar with “Young Frankenstein” are doubled over in laughter just now.)

A fifth grader from Orange County, Florida was recently asked to remove his Hooters coronavirus mask while in school. Greg Golba says the orange mask has the Hooters logo and nothing more. He says his son did nothing wrong. The school says the Hooters mask violates their dress code.  Just another example of Hooters being underrepresented and disrespected in today culture and that has got to stop!

And finally,

Sure, we’ve all accumulated a few odd possessions over the years, but do you have a Rick Astley blow-up doll hidden in a dark corner of your house? One Canadian homeowner left that behind during a move, and according to a major clean-up company, that’s not even the strangest “forgotten” item on the list of weird decor items. Some of the other things they’ve found: a Watermelon-sized ball of human hair…a nude painting of Prince Charles and…a taxidermy hamster wearing lipstick.

The Mountain Dew Margarita!

The Mountain Dew Margarita!

There is a new marriage we should celebrate…but it’s not between two people. But rather, between Mountain Dew and Red Lobster! They’ve created a new margarita cocktail called, “The DEW-Garita! Red Lobster plans to pair the drink with their Cheddar Bay Biscuits. (USA)

A missing cell phone in Malaysia turned up with the camera roll full of video and photos of a hungry monkey.  Footage shared on social media shows the animal trying to eat the phone, lost by a 20-year-student in Malaysia.  Zack Rodzi told the BBC that his phone went missing on Sunday. When he called the lost phone, he heard ringing coming from the jungle behind his house, and somehow, the camera roll was filled with pictures of the monkey…who actually also used several filters to make himself look as good as the Kardashians before electrolysis…

And finally,

Some people have gotten creative with what they use as face coverings when out in public, but this British guy really takes the cake — or snake. Bus riders in Manchester were shocked when a passenger boarded the bus wearing a large snake over his face as a mask. Of course, the passengers were happy to social distance themselves from him and the snake. But the local authorities were not amused. They said, while they encourage people to create their own masks, they do not believe it extends to the use of snakeskin – especially when it’s still attached to the snake.” (Daily Mail)

Fuzzy Handcuffs and No Key!

Fuzzy Handcuffs and No Key!

The Daily Record News says the Kittcom, Washington police recently received a 911 call from an embarrassed couple. The man and woman were being intimate and using handcuffs when they realized they did not have the keys. They asked the police to come and unlock them. We hear the responding officer went in fully armed with…sarcasm.

Sky News says the city of Opa-locka, Florida has voted to repeal a 2007 law that banned saggy pants. The city issued citations to men and women, who wore baggy pants. The city council voted 4-1 to change their original ruling. Obviously, the city council is on the cutting edge of law reform.

And finally,

Decades of studies has shown that music eases a person’s anxiety. Swedish surgeons will play the radio to patients just to calm their nerves before an operation. A McGill University professor said that people use music therapeutically all the time, to bring themselves up, or to become more relaxed. So those of you in the ER this morning, listening to this…we’ll have some Ozzy to calm you down in just a few minutes.  (Medium)
