Happy holidays to you. This week I’ve got a tale of too many “Perplexi,” an oddly large number of humorous news stories about guns, a “Jackass” who wants to trade pot for a Big Mac, and I don’t care if Paul Csomo already mentioned it, in “Recommended Listening” I’m talking about Weird With You.
We’re back to “normal” this week. At least as normal as things really get around here. I’ve been spending a lot of time working on building the website and the patreon for the show. Of course that means I haven’t been nearly as productive as I’d have liked to have been. But we did get a new Shark. That’s exciting right? The news this week gets us back to those standard stories of drugs, bad judgement, and plain old stupidity. The “Jackass of The Week” puts a new twist on the old excuse, “it’s not mine.” Finally, in Recommended Listening, I’m getting back to guests from the Livestream For The Cure with another Phoenix based show: BSP: The Idio[t]Syncracy Files.
What do I have in common with my dog? Both of us have had major weight shifts lately. On a similar note, almost all of this week’s news is about breakfast food. I’ve got garlic coffee, cops confused by donuts, a shortcut to chicken and waffles, and a little “green” something to help your appetite. All that food left me with only one choice for this week’s “Recommended Listening” feature: The RestauRant Podcast.
A Japanese coffee shop owner has created an alternative coffee beverage using burnt garlic. He claims that his drink, despite having an aroma of garlic, tastes like regular coffee and is completely free of caffeine.
A Florida man was arrested during a traffic stop when the officer saw a white substance on the floor of the car that he believed to be crystal meth. Lab tests showed it was in fact just doughnut glaze. The man received a $37,500 settlement after suing the city for false arrest.
A Michigan man, wanted on probation violation, claimed he would turn himself in and bring the police a dozen doughnuts if they could get 1000 shares on his “wanted” post. After going viral and getting 4000 shares, he kept his word and showed up to the police station with a bag of doughnuts in hand.
A Long Beach restaurant owner has been getting a lot of heat after it was discovered that the fried chicken on her menu is purchased from Popeye’s. She claims she has always used pre-made fried chicken since her kitchen isn’t equipped to make it, and has never hidden that fact.
