A man in California risked his own life to save his dog from a bear attack. Just wait until you hear how he did it! We are talking about animal attacks!
A California man came face-to-face with a bear outside his home. He didn't run. He didn't call wildlife officials. Instead, he wound up and punched the bear in the face. Carl Moore is not a guy who scares easily. "The man or beast that I run from ain't been born, and his momma's already dead," he said. "I ain't run from nothing; I never have in my whole life and I ain't going to start now," he said. "And you're not going to sacrifice my babies for some damn bear." The other week, Lacy, the dog he loves like a daughter, started whimpering outside. Carl ran outside and saw a bear was the cause of his dog's crying. "And I raised both hands in the air and I cussed at him, 'Rrraaaaaaa! Get out of here you bastard, and he looked at me like 'Go eff yourself," he said. Carl then landed a whirling haymaker, punching the bear right in the face—bear-handed if you will. The bear is long gone and likely in no rush for another Foothill fist fight with the new reigning champ. But if he does return, you know Carl will be ready.
An Oklahoma man is recovering after being bitten by his pet zebra. The guy was working in a yard next to the animal's enclosure when the animal attacked him. The animal "just put his head over the fence and bit" him. The man had to get seven stitches. The owner of the animal said she has had the zebra for 10 years, since it was a baby. People in the neighborhood said they've never had any issues with the zebra. The animal has been locked in a stable since the incident, but now the city of Muskogee is making the owner get rid of it. City officials said exotic animals are not allowed within Muskogee city limits and that it has been that way for years.
A Florida man who clearly needs a new hobby is recovering in the hospital after a poisonous snake he kissed did what poisonous snakes do and bit him -- on the lips. Austin Hatfield loves snakes and his hobby is actually kissing them. He's a real hit at parties. Last week, when he went to lay a big smooch on a venomous viper, the snake said, "Oh no you don't" and sunk its fangs into his face. Even before Hatfield was able to rip the snake off, his face began to swell up. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Authorities say Hatfield was keeping the snake illegally without a permit or a cage and may face charges. The snake, meanwhile, was euthanized.
Slacker thinks that if the bear would have heard the man talking, he probably would have realized the man wasn't very smart and wouldn't have eaten him anyway! He thinks the bear probably wouldn't have wanted to eat someone who was illiterate because the meat wouldn't taste very good!?
Steve's favorite animal attack story is the story of a woman who was trapped in her car by a hungry pig!
If you have an unbelievable story of an animal attack, we want to hear about it!
They are some of the most exciting days of your school career. We're talking about field trip days...and sometimes they don't always go to plan!
Seven elementary school students on a field trip were taken to a hospital to be examined after being splashed by diesel fuel! The bus driver pulled onto the right shoulder of the freeway after the fuel line sustained damage and ruptured. About 40 fifth grade students and two teachers were aboard the bus at the time, and seven girls were sprayed with some fuel when the fuel pump malfunctioned. The seven girls were taken to three area hospitals as a precaution.
A bus full of high school students was forced to stop at a hospital after dozens of them fell ill. The bus of about 60 students and 15 chaperones was traveling from a field trip to Walt Disney World. 25 people on the bus were treated and released for gastrointestinal discomfort. No one was quarantined, however, students did stay at the hospital overnight. The bus experienced mechanical issues and since the group was not able to find available rooms at nearby hotels, staff handed out pillows and blankets, and the students stayed overnight in the hospital's cafeteria.
A field trip to a popular South Florida tourist attraction almost ended in tragedy for one student.Frankie Luca Andreu was on a school field trip to Miami's Jungle Island when, his father said, a llama trampled his son after escaping from its pen. Andreu was near the park's petting zoo when the llama walked out of the pen. "The story then is he got run over by a llama," Andreu's father said in an interview. "So I'm like, how does that even happen?" Frank Andreu, who was chaperoning the trip, and his wife said their son had his shoes knocked off and suffered scrapes and bruises.
Slacker says that his field trips were the worst when he was a kid and they didn’t really get to go anywhere fun. He remembers one field trip to the sewage plant… everyone barfed!
Steve remembers when he went to a Civil War fort for a field trip. But it was in South Dakota, which was nowhere near where the Civil War happened, so he doesn’t really know why it was even there! Steve thinks the sack lunch was the best part of the field trip!
If you have any crazy field trip stories, we want to hear them!
Protecting and ensuring the well-being of a child is the most important thing to most people. Today's OPP wants to protect a child...but she might be over-stepping her boundaries. Here is Eve’s problem:
Eve has been the Step-mother of her husband’s child for almost 6 years. The biological mother is not really in the picture, doesn’t pay child support, and has only really talked with the child a few times. Eve has been there for the child since she was around 1 year old and the child even calls Eve “mom”. Eve just realized that if anything were to happen to her husband, she would have no custody of the child and the child would probably end up with the biological mother. Eve wants to adopt the child, but doesn’t know how to go about talking with her husband or the biological mother about it.
Slacker thinks she deserves the right because she has been there for the child for so long. He thinks it’s crazy that the biological mother would have custody if anything ever happened to the husband, especially because the biological mother hasn’t been in the child’s life!
Steve says that it would probably be really hard for the biological mother to just sign over her child, even if she’s not a big part of her child’s life.
As we were discussing things in the studio, Steve and Lil D discovered there is a simple, everyday task that Slacker does completely wrong! Not just a little wrong...like absolutely, totally wrong.
Slacker says that he never sticks around when he is pumping gas! He says he doesn’t have the patience to stand there for 5 minutes while his 20 gallon gas tank fills up! Slacker says if it was that dangerous, they would have security guards watching or pay someone to pump gas instead of letting people pump their own gas! He says it’s like the “turn off your cell phone” rule on an airplane…no one follows it and nothing bad happens! He also doesn’t turn off his car while pumping gas!
Steve CANNOT believe that Slacker leaves the pump unattended while he is pumping gas! Steve says that Slacker is breaking the law, but Slacker doesn’t really believe him. Steve pointed out that even if nothing has happened yet, it exponentially increases the chances that something might happen.
Lil’ D said that he once saw a girl walk away while she was pumping gas and the gas tank started overflowing! One guy had to run over to stop the gas and pull the nozzle out before the whole gas station blew up! Lil’ D says while pulling in the gas station, he always looks for the emergency shutoff switch. Slacker had no idea that an emergency shutoff switch even exists!
We want to hear the things that other people do wrong that drive you crazy!
It’s always embarrassing when it happens to you, but wardrobe malfunctions always make for a great story!
Australian horse jockey Blake Shinn suffered a wardrobe malfunction during a recent race. He was riding Miss Royale when his pants fell down! Shinn finished second; butt is the one that everyone is talking about! He said, "I was more worried about winning the race. They [the pants] went just after the start and there was nothing I could do! I think a lot of people are going to have a bit of fun with this, but they can't say I wasn't focused and went to the line."
Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid had to rush off to change her dress during the breakfast TV show after suffering a wardrobe malfunction. Viewers discovered that the star, 44, who blamed "physics" for the tear, had disappeared from her desk after a news bulletin. John Stapleton told viewers that Reid's dress had split "spectacularly" and joked that being accidentally flashed by his co-presenter was "one of the bonuses of the show they don't put in the job description". Luckily for Reid her dress split while the cameras were not on her, but Kate Garraway explained: "Susanna's just nipped out of the studio." Returning to the studio, Reid said that she had been given a replacement dress which was almost "exactly the same" as the one she had been wearing.
Mischa Barton suffered a wardrobe malfunction at a movie screening in Hollywood this week, one that really seemed to catch the attention of actor Martin Sheen. The actress was attending a special screening of her 2014 movie Bhoptal: A Prayer for Rain on Friday when her plunging white top seemed to plunge a little too much. Barton’s shirt opened up, revealing that she wasn’t wearing a bra, and a photographer timed it perfectly just as Sheen noticed the nip slip. It was quite a memorable moment, as E! News noted. “While his angle would make it practically impossible to see any fashion mess-up, his facial expression delivers the reaction we may have imagined in our heads,” the report stated. “He may just qualify for best photobomb as well.”
Slacker says he had one wardrobe malfunction while on stage when he was in a rock band. During a quick costume change, his skinny jeans ripped and he had to run out on stage with his manhood not fully covered!
Steve says he has never really had a wardrobe malfunction!
Have you ever suffered from a funny wardrobe malfunction? If so, we want to hear about it!
Getting stuck in a survival situation is no joke! Two women survived being trapped for two weeks when their car got stuck in the snow! The sisters survived in their snow-trapped SUV for two weeks by eating Girl Scout Cookies, cheese puffs and melted snow. They were trapped for 13 days in Michigan after getting stuck because the road the women were on wasn’t plowed. There was no cell service in the area and their vehicle lost power. They wore extra layers of clothes at night to stay warm as temperatures fell to the 20s. Last Friday a helicopter spotted the vehicle and the sisters were rescued about 25 minutes later. They were taken to a hospital to get checked out and are doing fine.
A 17-year-old boy in California who went missing for nearly four days before he returned home said he hid on his high school campus,
The teen went missing his first-period class last Monday morning and missed his remaining classes. His disappearance led law enforcement officers to search all over for him including the school.
The boy came home during dinnertime on Thursday and said he hid at school surviving on fruit from trees.... and drinking from the water fountain.
Slacker has a crazy survival story! A few weeks ago, his Wi-Fi stopped working and he had to survive a few days without any internet in his house! He said it was pretty difficult, but thankfully he made it out alive!
Steve says he watches all the survival shows, so if he ever had to survive in the wilderness he knows all the secrets to stay alive!
Whether it was in the wilderness, a natural disaster, or zombie apocalypse, we want to hear your survival stories!
We get OPP’s that tackle all kinds of situations. Some make us laugh and some can get pretty serious. Today’s OPP is definitely one the more serious kinds. Candy called in to inform us on her situation and here is a summary of what she had to say.
About 4 ½ years ago Candy was in an on-again, off-again sort of relationship with this guy. The relationship wasn’t very serious and during a time that they weren’t together, she found out that she was pregnant. She decided to terminate the pregnancy because they were not together and she didn’t know if they would ever end up together again. She also did not tell him about it. Fast forward to today…They got back together and are going to get married! She still hasn’t told him about the terminated pregnancy. Candy doesn’t know if she should tell him or keep it a secret.
Slacker thinks she needs to start out their marriage with no secrets and she needs to be completely honest with him.
Steve doesn’t really know what Candy should do! He doesn’t really know what good will come if she does tell him.
What advice do you have for Candy? Do you think she should tell her fiancé or keep it a secret?
“Awesome!” is one word that people seem to use to describe EVERYTHING!! However, the word may not be so awesome anymore! According to TIME magazine, “awesome” is one word that you should never use if you want to be taken seriously! “Awesome. I would advise any entrepreneur who aspires to be taken more seriously to eliminate this ubiquitous word from his or her vocabulary.”
Slacker wants to punch the person who wrote this article. He says he uses “awesome” ALL THE TIME, and when he says it, people understand that whatever he was describing was in fact, awesome. Slacker thinks the phrase “Sorry not sorry” is way over used and needs to stop!
Steve says he never says the word “awesome”… ever! Steve thinks all of the new slang terms like twerking, selfie, or totes are dumb and people need to stop saying them! He thinks you should be able to tell what something is by the name of it!
Lil’ D is sick of hearing the word “Legendary”.
Are there any words that you think are way overused? We want to hear which word you think people need to stop saying!
No matter how old you get, some things will always be hard to tell your parents! Slacker is a grown man and was terrified to tell his parents about something his wife did.
Slacker says that his parents are completely against tattoos, so he was afraid to tell them when his wife got a tattoo. Now he is thinking about getting a tattoo and doesn’t want to tell his parents because of their reaction to his wife’s tattoo. Slacker says he also knows someone who got married quickly in order to gain citizenship into the country and kept it a secret from their parents for over 2 years!
Steve says he got his ear pierced when he was younger and had to hide it from his parents for two weeks! Steve also broke a vase when he was younger and he blamed it on his dog. When his parent thought that the dog broke the vase, they decided to get it put down!
Lil’ D’s parents bought him a truck when he got his license. Lil’ D and his friend decided to go drifting with the truck on the very first day he had it and ended up sliding off a cliff and wrecked it! Lil’ D said his friend was pretty good with cars and was able to fix it before his parents found out!
Whether you got married behind their back, never finished college, or you caused the basement to flood when you were 15, we want to hear about it! Is there anything you were/still are afraid to tell your parents?
Today’s OPP is has a brother who turning 18 soon and he has made a major life changing decision. However, our OPP doesn’t think it’s a good idea and wants him to change his mind. Here is what Morgan has to say:
Yi! My brother wants to join the military and I’m trying to convince him not to do it. I love him so much and I’m afraid that he’ll get killed. He doesn’t even have a good reason to do it other than he's turning 18. I mean he says that it’s his duty, but to be honest he is a big wimp and he doesn't know what else to do. I feel like he might regret it immediately after joining. How do I talk him out of joining the military and make him realize there's better things he can do with his life?
Slacker says that if her brother finds something noble about joining the military, she should let him do what he wants. Slacker doesn’t think he could join the military because he doesn’t really like people telling him what to do.
Steve thinks she might be a little overbearing. Steve said he was signed up to join the military; however he had some alcohol offenses that did not let him to join.
What do you think Morgan should do? Should she try to stop him or should she stay out of it?
We have all had a run in with the police at one point or another, but just wait until you hear these crazy cop stories!
A woman was ordered by police to sit in her hot car after she left her dog in it! An Ohio police officer who responded to a call about a dog locked inside a hot car said when the owner returned to the car, he ordered her to sit in the hot vehicle with the doors closed and windows rolled up. Luckily the dog, which was sitting in a Nissan Sentra, was fine. According to the officer, the woman was fine when she got out, but did look uncomfortable. She got off with a warning.
The NY Daily News claims Bakersfield, California Police Officer Aaron Stringer has been placed on paid leave for tickling a corpse. He allegedly pulled on Ramiro Villegas' toes before touching the bottom of his feet and saying "tickle tickle." The horseplay allegedly occurred while Villegas' body was on a gurney under a blood-soaked sheet. An officer-in-training reported Stringer's conduct.
It must be really hard to get arrested in Texas -- even driving through the state with a dead body in the car doesn't get you tossed in the slammer. Police in Lubbock were called to a car dealership after a man came in for an oil change with his dead mother's body in the back seat. The man told police that his mother had died two days earlier and he was transporting her body out of state for her funeral. The manager at the dealership said, "It was kind of weird. He was talking in present tense that he might be disturbing his mom." Eventually, police determined that it was not illegal for the man to transport the body, and after seeing that he had all of the necessary legal documents to do so, they let him go.
Slacker says he can’t stand it when people leave their animal in their car. Slacker says when he gets pulled over he just tries to get it over with as quick as possible and always says “Yes Sir/Yes Ma’am”.
Steve says that if a cop ever made him sit in his car to try and teach him a lesson, he would just tell the officer to give him a ticket and leave. Steve says he doesn’t like authority, but when he gets pulled over he is over compliant.
Do you have any crazy Cop stories? We want to hear them!
Yi! My fiancé and I are getting married in a few months and I just discovered that she has basically put together the wedding she had planned with her ex. They were together for a long time and definitely talked about marriage, but I had no idea that they had everything planned out. Her best friend let it slip while they were looking at some wedding stuff the other night. It really upset me when I found out everything from the colors to our venue are things she was going to do with her ex. Almost everything is already paid for or has non-refundable deposits. What do I do now? Does she still have feelings for her ex?-Josh
Slacker thinks that she is over her ex but she wants her dream wedding still with or without her ex. He says if it was a party and she made plans surrounded by her ex he would feel weird about it but this is her wedding. He says if he were the bride and planned a wedding with an “insert groom here” then there is no point to get married because nothing is personal between the bride and the groom. He wants to know if men are always an “insert guy here” at every wedding.
Steve wants to know why women always get to pick out the wedding even though he has never heard of a guy who even cares about the wedding plans. He says that Josh needs to do something special to stand out and feel unique at the wedding.
What should Josh do? Do you think his fiancé still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend?

Slacker thinks that Steve is the jack of all trades but a master of none. He wants to know how Steve knows a lot because he would think that all the THC in his system would creep up on him.
Steve knows a crap ton of information about everything.
Getting lucky is a wonderful thing! Not that kind of lucky sickos! Have you ever felt so lucky you should purchase a lottery ticket? Well this woman did and it paid off, literally! Southern California woman, Yamilet Torrez who is 22-years-old, won one million dollars off of scratch tickets, not one, not two, but three different tickets! She was in disbelief when the money started to add up! After taxes Yamilet Torrez will receive 700,000 dollars. Dates can not only be a special thing but they can also be lucky as well. Eleanor Miller of Massachusetts is the winner of 25, 000 dollars a year for life. She won the “Lucky for Life” game after she entered in her anniversary dates (07-11-18-19-28) that correctly matched the lottery number pulling. Miller decided to claim her prize up front and received a one-time cash payment of 390, 000 dollars! She is still deciding what she will do with her new found money! Go buy a scratch ticket or play the lottery but don’t forget your important dates because you could be a winner if you don’t!
Slacker says that Steve is the lucky one and he never gets lucky!
Steve and Slacker were in Las Vegas for a business event. He thought he would gamble a bit before a dinner meeting. Slacker was pressuring him to hurry up so Steve went all in and won! Lucky guy!
It’s human nature to break things when we are angry! A Japanese woman was so angry when she caught her boyfriend cheating on her that she ruined every single Apple product that he owned. His laptop, tablet, iPod, and phone all took a swim when she drew the electronics a nice warm bubble bath. She then thought her revenge was so great that she posted pictures of it on Twitter! In Colorado Springs police arrested a man named Lucas Hinch for a shooting. No not a person, it was his computer. Lucas decided to relieve some anger out on his computer because it was failing to work properly. He took his computer in the back alley and fired a few shots at it. Lucas was cited for disarming a firearm in the city limits.
Slacker says he loves his electronics and would never destroy them no matter how man he is or if he found his wife cheating. The last thing he destroyed was a remote control that was $300 dollars because his cable box wouldn’t correspond with his television.
Steve says the cheating boyfriend probably had an apple watch as well and he had to say bye-bye to that one!
We want you to finish the sentence, “I was so mad I broke_____”
Candy has two children and is dying for a third. Sadly, her second child is disabled due to something that is passed along in her and her husband’s genes. If she decides to have another kid there is a 30 percent chance that their next child will also be disables. Candy has always wanted three children and she thinks that having a disabled child has made her a better mother and is ready for the next baby to come. Her husband is not for having a third child because the risk is too big to take and he is content with two children. She needs advice on how to convince her husband to have another baby.
Slacker says that he wouldn’t take the risk even if the chance of having another disabled child is 30 percent.
Steve doesn’t have kids because he says that having any child is a risk so he thinks she should definitely not take the risk with a third child.
How can Candy convince her husband to have a third child?
Amy found out that her dad was cheating on her mom by looking at the messages he was receiving on his phone. Oddly, Amy is thrilled because she thinks her mom is a “witch” to her dad and she thinks that it’s good for him to make himself happy rather than continue living an unhappy life. Amy’s husband Bill is completely in disagreeance with her because he thinks that her mom is great, a good cook, and she doesn’t deserve to be cheated on. Amy wants the best for dad because she thinks he is so great. Bill thinks that cheating is wrong on all counts and that he does not want to be hated by her mother because he knew about the cheating but declined to tell.
Slacker thinks that Amy’s mom does not deserve to get cheated on no matter how bad she is. HE thinks that Amy needs to tell!
Steve thinks that he should butt out because it is not his family and should not get mixed up. He says “blood trumps everything else.”
Nine people in Kentucky were caught stealing from their own work. No, it wasn’t money! It was 100,000 dollars-worth of bourbon. The thefts weren’t over night; they have been in process since 2008. The cops found 500 pound barrels of Bourbon at the home of the employees. One barrel of Wild Turkey was worth 3,000 dollars. Guns, cash, and drugs were also found in the employees homes. A FORMER Manchester policeman is locked up for a long time for stealing from work! The 28-year-old police officer stole 5,800 dollars-worth of cannabis and 3,900 dollars-worth of ecstasy. He admitted to the crimes and is in jail for four years. Everyone steals from work. Pens and pencils count! Fes up stealers!
Slacker says that the reason why they switched to clear plastic bags in retail because employees would “take the trash out” while smuggling some cute clothes. Slacker says that one of his employees committed the “trash bag” act and he caught him in the act! Needless to say he was fired. He says that the carpet cleaners at his work stole buckets full of CD’s including the Michael Bolton CD. Slacker says that he steals paper from work, but it doesn’t count because it is for his house which is used for work!
Steve thinks that the police officers should be able to take the drugs if the investigation is closed.
An Alaskan woman lost her wedding ring and found it in dog poop. She lost her ring in January and thought that her dog ate it but searching through her dog’s poop but found nothing. After no luck finding her ring she posted a picture of it on Facebook in hopes that someone would return it to her. Her lucky day came when a man who was cleaning up dog poop at a local ball park found her ring and returned it to her. A depressed farmer swallowed lots of change and nails. The man in India was complaining of a severe stomach ache. Doctors found 1470 coins and 150 nails, bolts, and batteries. The man has gone under 240 different stomach surgeries to remove the items and heal his stomach and still needs more. He blames the swallowing of items due to depression. Maybe the change, changed his depression.
Slacker says that he thinks that the ring had to be passed through other dogs. He says that his dog eats poop all the time and it’s common for other dogs to do that too! He says that when he is depressed he swallows alcohol not coins and nails!
Steve can’t say the word swallow in a mature fashion.
What have you, a pet, or someone you know have swallowed?
My wife is the type of person that cries at the drop of a hat. Every little thing makes her lose it. I understand it when she cries at movies or sad situations but it is literally every little thing. If a bill comes and we were overcharged, she doesn't get on the phone and try to figure things out--she cries. If her mom says something even remotely criticizing she cries. She cries at everything and it is really starting to get on my nerves and it doesn't help anything. How do I make her realize it's time to grow up and stop acting like a little girl all the time?-Mark
Slacker says that there are two sides to this story. He thinks that Mark should be the one to grow up and deal with his wife because he thinks that this over emotional attitude could be clinical. He says that he needs to not call his wife a “little girl” and know that this could be hormonal.
Steve wants to know if this is just a woman thing. He thinks that Mark needs to confront her but do it gently.
Stop by and get some fast food in Georgia and you might leave with something extra in your bag. Courtney Suzanne Morgalo is accused of selling meth to customers through the drive thru. The police went to the establishment and searched her car and found numerous incriminating things, like a scale, meth, plastic baggies and two unknown prescription bottles and pills. At least she did not get shot at by her customers like a woman did at her local fast food restaurant. Shaneka Torres ordered a bacon burger. While consuming her sandwich she realized it was bacon-less so she decided to shoot at the fast food restaurant. Torres is being sentenced to three to seven years behind bars for carrying a concealed weapon, intentionally discharging a weapon, and felony firearm.
Slacker says that he was in a rush to get to a meeting but was hungry so he decided to stop by and get some fast food. He says fast food restaurants are smart because they put curbs up in the drive thrus, so once you get in there you cannot get out. He was in the drive thru and was stuck behind a woman who was ordering food for her entire office and it was so slow but he couldn’t get out. He was angry because not only was he late to his meeting but fast food turned into slow food.
Steve says he hates waiting in line for fast food and that’s why he always goes into the restaurant.
What is the craziest thing that has happened to you at a drive thru?
Some changes can be hard to handle! Kraft Mac and Cheese is making a big change to their product, and some people aren’t happy about it! The popular meal in a box that you grew up on and are now likely feeding to your kids, is ditching the artificial preservatives and synthetic colors. The change, which will be fully implemented by next year, comes after years of research and pressure from consumers to remove food dye from the product. Kraft’s vice president says, “Consumers have been telling us, and parents in particular, that they want to feel good about the foods that they eat and that they serve their families." The yellow dyes will be replaced by natural ingredients like paprika, annatto and turmeric. While the color may look a little different, the company insists that the taste will remain the same.
Slacker says that he is going to buy ALL of the mac and cheese before they change it! He also said when they changed the Sun Chip bag; it ruined Sun Chips for him! He says the bag is so loud that he can’t eat them without getting pissed about how loud the bag is!
Steve doesn’t understand why they would change the mac and cheese! He says if you have something good going, don’t mess with it! Steve is also upset about all the changing technology. He says he doesn’t understand how to work most of it!
Lil’ D doesn’t like the fact that they changed the cartoons that he watched when he was a kid!
Is there anything that you think has changed for the worse? We want to hear your “They Never Should Have Changed ____” thoughts.
If you are good at something, winning can be easy. However, if you’re not very good at it, sometimes you have to cheat!
A Missouri woman who was the female winner of last Sunday’s Go! St. Louis Marathon was stripped of her title after officials discovered she didn’t complete all 26.2 miles. Kendall Schler snuck onto the course after the last checkpoint and didn’t run the entire 26.2 miles! Her first-place finish was fishy from the very start. Apparently she was wearing her bib wrong and claimed she had taken off the timing strip. Also, she was not accompanied by an official bicycle escort at the finish – which is customary. Race officials also determined she pulled the same stunt last year when she finished third. That record has also been removed.
A chess grandmaster has been expelled from an international tournament after he was discovered using a smartphone in the toilet to check his moves. Gaioz Nigalidze could face a three-year ban if the complaint against him is upheld. The reigning Georgian national champion was playing Armenian Tigran Petrosian in the sixth round at the Dubai Open. Petrosian alerted officials after noticing that his opponent was visiting the bathroom at regular intervals. Nigalidze was apparently using the same cubicle each time for ten minutes or more, arousing his rival's suspicions. When the player emerged from the toilet, officials discovered a smartphone wrapped in toilet tissue and buried in the bin. "He denied it was his, but it was logged into his Facebook page and there was a chess program running on it, showing his positions," the tournament director Yahya Mohamed Saleh told the BBC from Dubai.
The first prize up for grabs at the competition was $12,000!
Slacker says he doesn’t cheat! So when he finds out that someone has been cheating, it really makes him mad!
Steve says even though cheating does take a bit of effort, it’s always better than actually studying for the test!
Lil’ D says he absolutely agrees with Steve! He says during the standardizing testing in elementary school, he cheated off the guy next to him! Lil’ D and the guy he cheated off of ended up being put in an advanced class!
Have you ever been caught cheating or have busted someone else cheating? If so, we want to hear about it!
Relationships can be tricky, especially when they end. Today’s OPP wants to know why the person she was closest to is suddenly supposed to be the person she hates the most. Here is what Lucie has to say:
Yi! I really want to be friends with my ex-boyfriend because he really means a lot to me. I mean we spent nearly five years together and I don’t want to be bitter because we broke up. He has been really resistant to the idea, but I keep trying to show him how much he means to me. I think it’s really wrong to spend so much time with a person and then just totally dump that person from your life just because we don’t make a good couple. Do you guys think I’m crazy? Is that so wrong?
Slacker says he has burned every bridged he has ever crossed. He says he does it so he can’t cross that bridge again!
Steve thinks that Lucie makes a good point! He says that he is able to talk and text his ex. Even though they don’t hang out or anything, they are still able to talk and be friends.
Do you think it’s a bad idea to be friends with an ex?
A man in China didn't want to sit on a public toilet seat so he thought he came up with a great solution. Unfortunately, he ended up in the hospital instead! Jin Pai injured his butt while going to the bathroom at an airport in China. The 35 year-old climbed onto the rim of a toilet because he was worried it wasn't clean. The bowl collapsed and shattered leaving Jin with a lacerated and bruised booty. He used his cell phone to call his traveling companions for help. Doctors used several dozen stitches to close Jin's butt wound. Police spokesman Bo Chiang says: ''In any case, we would like to remind people that these toilets are for sitting on, not for standing on.''
A 2-year-old girl who thought it was a good idea to stick her head through a toilet seat, ended up getting stuck and needed to be rescued by firefighters. When the girl, Makynli Hood’s mother Aimee started potty training her daughter, she was so excited about getting out of diapers and using the bathroom like an adult, that she stuck her head into a new kid’s toilet seat, which her mother had purchased. Aimee did what she could to release her daughter from the seat, including using shampoo and other soaps, but to no avail. When neighbors failed to release the child from the seat, Aimee said she called firefighters to request their assistance, ‘They pulled up outside the house in a fire engine and three of them came in – I was just expecting one of them to come up in a car. She sat on my knee and one of the firefighters kept her calm while the others cut the seat off."
Slacker thinks that maybe the reason she stuck her head in the toilet is because she doesn’t like the spelling of her name! He doesn’t understand why parents have to give their child a name with such a weird spelling.
Steve wonders why he did just try to use one of those paper protector things if he was that worried about germs! He says any time he tries to use one, it ends up making sliding
Have you ever experienced a terrible toilet injury?
A 38-year-old woman was adopted when she was born and recently decided to try and find her birth mother. What she found was pretty amazing! The woman requested her adoption records and they were just made available by the Ohio Department of Health. After she learned her mother’s name, she decided to look her up on Facebook and discovered that they worked at the same tele services company! She reached out to her mother the next day and the two were reunited. She also learned that she has three sisters she didn’t know about—and one of them works at the company as well.
Slacker says that when he was a kid, he always thought it might be cool to be adopted. He says that he knew that he wasn’t adopted however, because he and his brothers all have the same teeth! Slacker says if he was adopted he would probably starting looking for his real family sooner than 38!
Steve says that when he learned what adopting was, he had to ask his parent if he was adopted.
Some stories just don’t make sense and are so unbelievable that it seems there is only one explanation… a higher power!
One woman suffered from a head injury when she got in a skiing accident… and it turned her into a genius! She says a skiing accident during a vacation left her with highly advanced mental abilities. She said the accident happened during the winter break of her senior year of college when she blacked out after she went flying off a ski slope! The woman added that she didn’t experience any negative long-term effects, except for a headache and shoulder pain, which was from a mild concussion and a broken collar bone. However, weeks later, her vision, perception, and her memory of things began to change drastically. She says she remembers every place she’s ever been in great detail because of the changes in her brain. The doctors say the condition is extremely rare, with only around 50 reported cases in the world.
Slacker says he couldn’t map out the building he works in everyday! Let alone remember every single place he has ever been to in great detail!
Steve says he has no short term memory left. Steve says he has no short term memory left. :)
Do you have any stories that can only be explained by a higher power?
Today’s OPP found out that her boyfriend did things with another woman. Some of you might say it should be considered cheating, others might tell her to get over it! Here is what Brandi has to say:
Yi! My boyfriend and I are fighting over something that happened last Saturday. I went out with my sister while he went out with his best friend. The guys went to a sports bar and met up with a woman that his friend likes. She had a girlfriend with her. The four of them went back to his friend's house and got in his hot tub. Jimmy swears nothing happened between him and the other woman. I was outraged. I consider this cheating. He says it is not and that he shouldn't be crucified because he did nothing wrong. Getting in a hot tub with another woman is WRONG!
Who's right - me or him?
Slacker says he isn’t a prude, however he thinks something may be wrong with this situation. If there are only four people in the hot tub, and a two of which are a couple, the other two are probably going to have to talk, and maybe flirt a little. He says it may have crossed the line when they left the bar.
Steve doesn’t understand why a guy can’t just sit in a hot tub without being accused of cheating.
Do you think this is considered cheating? What should Brandi do?
One father-daughter duo in New York set a world record with one of their body parts! Byron Schlenker and his teenage daughter BOTH hold records for having the world’s widest tongue! The fathers tongue measures in at 3.4 inches across (which is the same width as a beer mat and ¾ inches wider than an iPhone 6!) His daughter is not far behind at 2.8 inches wide—she holds the record for the widest female tongue while her father has the men’s crown. Since the dad’s tongue was officially dubbed the world’s widest he has become a celebrity in his hometown!
Some Celebs have physical oddities that you may have never known! Here are a few:
Mark Wahlberg: a third nipple
Megan Fox: clubbed thumbs
Ashton Kutcher: webbed toes
Denzel Washington: permanently bent pinky finger
Harry Styles: extra set of nipples
Carrie Underwood: had a third nipple (she since has had it removed)
Vince Vaughn: half a thumb missing
Mila Kunis: two different colored eyes
Slacker says it’s hard to look at the picture of the father-daughter couple! He says he would make out with a cow tongue before he would go anywhere near Bryon Schlenker! He also said that every person in his family has lost/cut off a finger!
Steve thinks that even if they didn’t have those tongues, they would still look weird! Steve thinks that Lil’ D should start poking Slacker with his deformed finger just to freak him out!
Lil’ D says he smashed his finger between a car ramp and the concrete when he was a kid! He said his finger pretty much exploded and now there is no bone in the upper third of his finger!
Do you have any body oddities? We want to hear about them!
If you’re single and believe in ghosts then today is your lucky day! There is a new dating app that is only for the supernatural believers. The dating website is called the Supernatural Dating Society. The websites says that they "would like nothing more than to meet other people with whom they can discuss their thoughts, beliefs and experiences without compromise." Spooky! A 79-year-old Texas woman got scammed out of one million dollars from a man whom she met on a dating website. He claims he needed money to buy tools to help him fix his house. After four transactions through the bank, the woman had never heard from him again, until the bank became extremely suspicious. The woman explained the circumstance and now the police have found the man and he is getting charged with theft and is facing serious prison time. A hack on Tinder set up bots all around the world and reprogrammed the system to hook straight men up with one another without their knowledge. The men would exchange flirty messages, but never met in public. Once some hints were dropped it became a very awkward situation. The hacker came forward and stated that he thought it was hilarious and he liked watching the results unfold. Be careful who you date online!
Slacker says he wonders how many right swipes he would get if he posted his wedding ring on Tinder. He thinks that would be a good experiment.
Steve does not do online dating because he doesn’t know how to use it.
Kelly was rummaging through her husbands’ email and found something odd that is now changing the way she feels about her husband. She stumbled across an email from his work stating that he was reprimanded for sexual harassment. She said the email included information about how he was trying to make advances and making comments. She also says that he is not a sexual guy who makes sexual innuendos. Kelly has not confronted her husband about this so he has no idea that she knows. She is sad but also disgusted that her husband would be fooling around and crossing the line at work with another woman. She can’t even look at her husband anymore. They have not had relations since she found the email. She needs advice on what to do. She thinks that her marriage is just over and that she should just leave him but another part of her wants to confront him.
Slacker says that if you listen to an off air conversation of Slacker and Steve, you could consider that to be sexual harassment. He says that if his wife saw an email of him being inappropriate at work she wouldn’t be surprised because half of his jokes are sexual innuendos. He says that human resources probably have a whole file of Slacker and Steve. He says that she will need to confront him.
Steve says that she needs to confront him. He thinks that he is hiding something major because he didn’t mention it.
Should Kelly confront her husband or just leave him? Is their marriage over?
Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy were all fictional characters that left us all scarred when we found out they were not real, but we want to know what else you believed in that is completely not true but your believed it anyway! Slacker, Steve, and Lil’ D were all terrified of one substance. Your parents tell you don’t touch it because it will get under your skin. Fiber Glass! They were terrified of fiber glass and thought that it would ultimately kill them.
Slacker says he also believed that when he first got his driver’s license that he did not have to stop at the stop signs with white trimming around them. He says that a bunch of guys at school told him that and he believed it until he went to a big city and saw that everyone was stopping at the white trimmed stop signs. He also believed that warts came from a frog peeing on you.
Steve says that a girl in his neighborhood told him that his skin would be mangled if he touched the fiber class and the girl that told him about the fiber glass had just shoved Steve’s friend’s face into a pile of it. Steve stopped hanging out him afterwards because he thought he was contagious.
Lil’ D’s dad bought a fiber glass canoe to go fishing in, this after being all the kids at school telling him that touching fiber glass will kill him because the glass would dissolve under his skin. His dad had to do some major convincing to get him into the boat. He also thought that clouds came out of smoke stacks.
Finish this sentence, “All my life I believed__________!”
Georgia mother got caught for holding a party for her daughter that got out of hand fast. The mother played naked Twister with the teens, smoked pot, drank alcohol, and even had relations not with just one teen but two and it was her daughter’s boyfriend. The mother was in sexual and alcohol counselling and after the party she confided in her counselor and spilled all the beans. The counselor then called the police and she is not losing custody of all five children. She was recently divorced from her husband who is an Iraqi war veteran. At least she did not drop her child into a cheetah exhibit like the mother in Ohio. Last Saturday a mother dropped her 2-year-old son into the Ohio’s zoo cheetah exhibit. The boy survived the 12-foot fall and the cheetah’s never approached the boy. He was taken to the local hospital. Another mother in San Fernando Valley in California is catching heat this week after videos of her surfacing on YouTube of her pole dancing with her child on her back. Ashley Wright posted a video of her clothed with her baby wrapped on her back while she danced to a Lion King Song. Some say that she endangering her child and should be charged with child abuse.
Slacker says how does this kind of stuff happen? That is bad parenting gone to the extreme! He said that his parents would never let him have parties at their house.
Steve thinks the Georgia mom is an amazing mom and he thinks she is cute because she has great cheekbones.
There are just some things in life that we can never go back to. Slacker loved the movie Dirty Dancing in the 80’s. When he first watched it he was actually surprised about how good it was but last weekend that was not the same case. When he watched the movie last weekend he was mortified as to why he ever liked the movie in the first place. Steve will never go back to his ex and it’s not because they had a bad relationship. He used to picture his ex during his “special alone time” until he saw her recent Facebook picture. She gained so much weight that he can never go back to picturing her in the same way again. Lil’ D grew up on Hamburger Helper and loved it. He loved it so much and it was cheap, so he decided that he would make some for his family. First bite he thought it was disgusting and never knew how he consumed so much of it in his childhood.
Slacker says that he was excited to watch Dirty Dancing with his daughter once she got older but not anymore because he thought it was so terrible due to bad acting and a terribly plot line. He feels the same about Disney Land.
Steve says that his ex was physically awesome until recently! He tracked down his old ex and she has just turned into a super uber mom! He said she was rocking the mom jeans!
Lil’ D says Hamburger Helper is the ultimate cheap delicious meal until he tried it again.
Yi - I've been dating a guy for 6 weeks and he asked me to go on vacation to the Bahamas with him. He goes all the time and wants to take me. I've never been out of the country and I've only seen the ocean once before so he is really excited to show me the sandy beaches and blue water. I will probably never have the money to take a trip like this again so I'm really thinking of going. I'm not stupid though and I know it's not smart to travel so far with someone I've known less than 2 months. What should I do? Take the opportunity to see a place I won't have the chance to go to again? Or play it safe and stay home? –Alyssa
Slacker’s fourth date with his ex-wife was in Mexico. He thinks that Alyssa probably has a weird feeling about the man because she is writing to the show for advice. He says that if she really liked this guy she would know what to do without having to ask for advice. He also discusses “vacation relations” are way better, so they should go have some fun experiences together. Ultimately Slacker says that Alyssa should go.
Steve thinks it is their responsibility to keep Alyssa alive. He says that if he was a girl he would never girl and he would never ask someone for only knowing them for six weeks to go on a trip. He says that she should just go onto the internet and look at the Bahamas rather than go because all sand looks the same and so does the ocean. Steve says don’t go!
Josh and Lauren are about to make a huge commitment to each other but before they do, Lauren wants to put Josh out of his comfort zone. She wants the two of them to write their own wedding vows. Josh is against the idea because he is bad at writing and he does not want to look stupid at his own wedding. She wants him to try really hard and do it for her. He thinks that the traditional vows are better and he knows how good Lauren is at writing, so nothing he does, no matter how hard he tries, his vows will never add up to hers. Josh says that he loves her but his words are not good enough. She wants him to put forth the effort and explain his emotions and feelings for her in front of everyone. Lauren describes the traditional wedding vows as un-romantic and that written vows are much better at explaining love and emotions. She really wants to put value into their vows. He says traditional vows are still sentimental. Lauren says that he has written her love letters and that he is a fantastic writer.
Slacker says that he is more of a traditional type of guy. He says that you don’t know how nerve racking it is standing up on the alter in front of everyone and having to say your own vows would make the event even harder. Slacker feels that she just wants to show off her writing skills at her wedding.
Steve says that maybe they could pre-record their vows so he does not have to participate in the public speaking or have Morgan Freeman write and read his vows. He doesn’t think that Lauren should not be making her love one look and feel stupid at his wedding.
Here’s your daily dose of cuteness for a day! A pizza place in California got a request they never thought they would get. A woman called in made an order than made a special request. She wanted the pizzeria to send their cutest delivery boy and to tell her that she was pretty. The delivery boy thought he was going to a big drunken party but turns out it was the exact opposite. He showed up to the woman’s birthday party at her own house with elaborate decorations but no one else was there because no one showed up. The delivery boy stayed with her for about an hour and they shared the pizza and cake. He left her after telling her she was pretty and happy birthday. Unfortunately when he returned to work he got written up for taking so long but he says it was worth it. Some more good news if you’re a Taco Bell lover! They are now starting an experiment to deliver! Hopefully the experiment is profitable because I am sure many people will want Taco Bell delivered to them.
Slacker says that he wants to work in a pizzeria and call everyone Lou and call the pizza pies! He says that if he worked at that pizzeria they would have definitely sent him.
Steve says that he would have been the one who was sent, not Slacker.
A stalker in Pennsylvania is going to jail for 18-36 months for stalking a local family. 37-year-old John Geiman pleaded guilty to pouring sugar in the family’s car and urinating on it, and starting a fire on their front porch. The reason for the stalking was due to the man having a brief relationship with the wife of the family. Geiman has been cited for 10 instances of stalking. The family now has a restraining order against the man. Bin Van Phan followed a woman all the way to Dubai to stalk her. The woman did not want anything to do with him yet he bombarded her with flowers, chocolates, and champagne on Christmas day at her family home. This woman tried to get away from him by moving to the Middle East but Bin spent three weeks trying to find her exact location and he did. The woman was friends with Bin but never had a relationship with him. He is being jailed for 10 weeks and she received a restraining order against him. A Florida man was stalking two woman and they lead him right to a police station. A 24-year-old woman was walking out of her house in Plantation, Florida when Jason Seeburger was watching her closely. She was waiting for her friend to pick her up and when she did Jason followed the two women. When the two females discovered that they were being followed they drove to the Sunrise police headquarters. Jason was watching the women while he was parked in the police station’s lot. Not knowing where he was, he was surprised when police officers came out and arrested him. He admitted to following them because he thought one of the females was cute. A New Jersey man was arrested with a woman’s pair of underwear in his pocket. The stalker broke into this woman’s apartment and took a pair of her underwear. The man is being charged with theft, criminal trespass and “peering.”
Slacker says that he usually stalks people “pre-love.” He would go to where the people he wanted to date were. If he knew the girl he liked was at the mall he would go to the mall. He says that he does not stalk after a relationship because he is too busy for that.
Steve says that he stalked his old girlfriend when they broke up. It was the only girl Steve has ever lived with.
Have you or have you had a stalker? What crazy thing did they do to you?
Gina has been with her boyfriend for about eight months and she is having a dilemma with her boyfriend’s family. They started dating right after he broke off his previous engagement with another woman. His family only sees Gina as a rebound even though their one year anniversary is coming up shortly. She has even caught her boyfriend’s sisters talking behind her back and they were not nice things being said. Gina says she is in love with her boyfriend and does not want to lose him. She says that a rebound to her is typically only a week. Gina has not talked to her boyfriend about this because she says it is not in her character to start drama. She needs help on convincing his family that she is not a rebound.
Slacker he says that the next person you date does not always mean that they are a rebound. He started dating his current wife right after his divorce. He says the only way to know if you are a rebound id if your relationship is moving really fast. He said this situation is not good but sometimes the rebound person turns out to be the one.
Steve says you have to prove that you are not the rebound. He says that maybe she can break out of the rebound zone.
How can Gina convince his family that she isn’t a rebound? Is this even possible or is their relationship just doomed?
Even actors get hurt in stupid ways! Actress Tori Spelling took quite the tumble onto a grill in a Benihana restaurant. She was severely burned and even had to get surgery for skin grafts which she was totally against due to her fears of scarring. Her two boys and husband Dean were shaken up and looked terrified and sad according to the press. At least she didn’t tear any tendons like the California man did. He tore tendons in his thumb for playing too much Candy Crush on his phone. He quickly became addicted to the game and now needs surgery. Dr. Andrew Doan says, "We need to be aware that certain video games can act like digital painkillers." Be careful around grills and don’t play too many IPhone games.
Slacker says he goes to Benihana a lot and has an irrational fear of the grills there because he talks a lot with his hands and he drinks a lot of sake there. He says that he does not think that Tori Spelling is that cute. He says that he hurt himself badly when he was trying to pick up a pencil.
Steve tore his ACL while reaching for his toothbrush. He says that for skin grafts they take the skin from the back of your thighs, so Tori Spelling will never be able to wear shorts again!
Hitchhiking can lead to some pretty bizarre stories, but just wait until you hear what these two guys tried to do! Two ‘knights in shining armor’ are hitchhiking across Ireland… all while literally wearing 55 pounds of armor! Brendan Halpin and his companion Jack Pinson an expert in longbow making, set out from Waterville to hitchhike to Killarney. They are making their way horseless to the early 16th century Galway battle site. Halpin, who has a master’s degree in combat archaeology, is a founder member of Irish Medieval Combat, the first Irish organization in recent history dedicated to the sport of full contact medieval combat. “We’ve been getting really positive reactions,” Halpin said during a stop in Killarney.
A man in Kentucky picked up a hitchhiker and probably shouldn’t have! The hitchhiker pulled a knife on the driver and forced him to veer off the roadway onto a dirt road. He then kicked out the driver and stole his car! According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies received a call around 6:40AM about the incident and 45 minutes later located the truck abandoned on the road. They are still looking for the hitchhiker who stole the truck at this time.
Slacker doesn’t know which is weirder, the hitchhiker or the person who picks them up! However, he said he would pick up a guy with a chainsaw and mask before he picks up LARPers (Live Action Role Players)!
Steve doesn’t understand the mentality of hitchhikers! He says there is public transportation if you need to go somewhere! And if you are going somewhere that’s really far away and you don’t have a car/money, you probably shouldn’t be going there anyway!
Whether you have been the hitchhiker or you have picked up a hitchhiker, we want to hear about it! Do you have any crazy hitchhiking stories?
Tantrums, out-of-control hormones, stealing...dealing with just one of these is enough to drive a parent crazy. Put them all together and you get krazy kids.
A 13-year-old boy in Ohio destroyed his mother’s car because she took away his cellphone! The boy jumped on the roof and smashed the front windshield. He also spit on his mother and threw a large bottle of Gatorade at his stepfather. After destroying the car, he ran away from home. When he returned home a few hours later, he was taken to a juvenile detention center.
A middle school student steals money from his grandfather and gives it away to his classmates. He stole a total of $25,000 and was handing out $100 bills to his friends at school. He ended up giving away thousands of dollars before he got caught. So far $7,000 has been recovered but the cops are still trying to figure out how he took the money.
A 14-year-old in Florida was charged for changing his teacher’s background screen on his computer. The middle school student was able to hack into the computer system and changed the background to two men kissing. The teen figured out the password to the network but never changed any grades or anything else. He was arrested and suspended for 10 days.
Slacker says that any one of these stories may turn out to be his son! He thinks his son is going to be a rebel child.
Steve says when he was 16 his mom let him use her car to take the driver’s test. Her conditions for him using it was that he had to clean it before he used it, however, he never cleaned it and his mom called him out on it! He says he was mad so he flipped her off.
Do you have any krazy kid stories? We want to hear them!
It's a term most of us have had to deal with in one relationship or another..."break." Today's OPP wants to know what exactly it means when you take a break. Here is what he has to say:
Yi! My boyfriend and I have been dating for about 7months now and it has been good. Recently he has had an itch to feel what it's like to be single. He is really confused and doesn't want to break up, but instead have a break. He says he still loves me, but he doesn't want to cheat so he wants to be honest and try this single life. We are on a break for 2-3 weeks and at the end he will chose if he likes it and rather have that or stay with me. Do you think he just doesn't want to hurt my feelings, and doesn't know how to break up? or do you think he is really confused? I've asked him and he always says he's confused. What should I do? Wait or just let it all go?
Slacker says a break can be healthy if both people think it will strengthen the relationship. If one person needs a break and the other person really wants to be with them, they should let them go. If they come back, then you know that they really want to be with you.
Steve thinks a “break” means that you are no longer a priority to the other person. And if after that break (which consists mostly of having relations with other people) they want you back, Steve says you shouldn’t take them back! He says you shouldn’t be someone second choice!
What do you think taking a break in a relationship means?
An Alaska Airlines flight had to make an emergency landing when the pilot heard a banging noise coming from beneath the plane! Once they landed, they realized the noise was coming from a person who was trapped in the cargo hold beneath the plane’s passenger compartment. Rescue workers and airline officials found a baggage handler in the cargo compartment when they opened its door. The worker told investigators that he had fallen asleep in the compartment and only woke up when the plane was already taking off! The worker was taken to a hospital to be checked and was able to walk away from the aircraft after the cargo door was opened. The flight departed later and landed in Los Angeles about 80 minutes late.
Slacker says he recently fell asleep in a taxi cab while on the highway. He says he told the driver which exit to take and when he woke up, the driver completely missed the exit and just kept on driving! He said what should have been a $40 taxi ride turned into a $95 taxi ride!
Steve says Slacker is the one who always falls asleep and denies Slackers accusations the he is the one who is always falling asleep in meetings!
Have you ever fallen asleep at an inappropriate time? We want to hear your crazy sleeping stories!
A man in England woke up to an unexpected and unwanted tattoo! Josh Barnbrough was passed out at a party when his friend decided it would be a good idea to give him some new ink! He woke up the next morning to find a tattoo on his back that read, “If found face down call an ambulance”. The friend inked him with a do-it-yourself tattoo kit! “The opportunity presented itself and I couldn’t resist. I didn’t feel guilty when I was doing it because I’d had a few drinks myself but I was quite remorseful afterwards and asked everyone not to tell Josh who had done it” says the friend. Josh now has to pay for and suffer through the pain of getting the tattoo removed!
Slacker doesn’t think he has ever been so drunk/passed out that he wouldn’t wake up and feel someone TATTOOING him!! Slacker remembers his mom passing out when his brother smashed his arm under a car hood. He says that the moment she saw what happened she went down!
Steve says he never passes out and that Slacker is always the one who is passing out! However, he did pass out at a concert due to heavy drinking and smoking.
Whether it was from fainting or drinking too much, we want to hear your pass out stories!
A man in Australia is filing for divorce after 40 years, but his reasoning for it is super shallow! He told the court he would have never married his wife if he had known she had deformed nipples. He says it was the reason his marriage was 'doomed' during his divorce proceedings. Despite the marriage lasting for forty years he told the Canberra court the relationship was over as soon as he discovered his wife’s disfigurement in 1975. The couple were married in 1972 and both parties dispute when the marriage ended with the husband claiming it was in 1999 and the wife insisting it was in fact 2011. Claiming he only stayed with his wife for the sake of his children the man accused his wife of avoiding sex to hide her disfigurement and insisted the person he lived with before his marriage was a ‘fake’ and an ‘illusion’. "If I had seen them before I would not have married her. Our marriage was doomed. If she had not been pregnant I would have sought a divorce in 1975” he said.
Slacker knows someone who dated this girl that was really beautiful but not that sharpest tool in the shed. This girl thought that coleslaw was pronounced/spelled cold-slaw…so the guy broke up with her. Slacker also said that his ex-wife thought that a windowsill was called a window seal. He says that always bothered him!
Steve says he is pretty shallow! He says that he once dated a girl who always ate her dessert first… so he dumped her!
Do you have any shallow breakup stories? We want to hear them!
Today’s OPP and her best friend are going through a rough patch! Here is what Hilary has to say:
My best friend and I have been almost inseparable since high school. Things have really changed lately. Everything she does is really getting on my nerves. We'll go out to drink and we used to have a good time but now I want to punch her in the face for acting so stupid. She'll talk trash about someone and I generally seem to think the other person is right. I don't know what's brought this on, and to be honest I don't know if she has changed or if I have. Is this a something friendships go through? Are we just in a "slump" or is it time to move on from her?
Slacker thinks that if they have been that close for that long, it is somewhat natural to get tired of each other at some point or another. He says that once you get irritated with a friend and you have to put too much effort into it, he doesn’t think it’s worth it anymore. Slacker’s advice is to leave the friendship!
Steve says that people change and when you get to a certain age, friends are really as important anymore. He thinks that when you get older, friends start to grow apart and just become acquaintances.
Steve has recently learned a valuable lesson… the hard way! One of Steve’s hobbies is collecting antique toys. He says he gets really into it and spends quite a bit of money on the hobby. However, when one of Steve’s friends asked if his son could borrow a toy for his show and tell day at school, Steve said yes. Low and behold, the $1000 batman toy was destroyed! Steve said that his friend promised that he would take care of the toy when he lent it to him but now that it has been destroyed, it doesn’t seem like he is going to repay him! Steve doesn’t know if he should be mad at his friend or mad at himself for trusting him!
Slacker doesn’t really understand the whole collectable toy situation and he says Steve should have really made sure that his friend knew just how valuable it was to him.
What do you think Steve should do? Have you ever lent a friend something that they destroyed or lost?
If you haven’t heard what happened here’s a little recap for you and an update! So previously this week Slacker was in a Target parking lot sitting in his car when he saw an employee’s car get hit by another car. The person who hit this young man’s car drove away without looking for damage, however it turns out the person who hit the car was Slacker’s old co-worker. So we covered the story on the show to find out what he should do; to say something or let it go. The next day after the segment aired, Slacker was getting calls from a random number in which he never answers. The person left a voice mail and you will never guess who it was. His co-worker! She tracked him down and left him a minute long message describing how terrible he was while using a ton of profanity. So today Slacker and Steve decided to call her back and thankfully she answered. It was not a pleasant conversation and Slacker even called her the “b” word out of anger and frustration but she was threatening to blackmail and expose him! Slacker told her to reveal the information she wanted to blackmail him about but all she says that she saw him get drunk. With no damaging information her anger only got worse. Slacker decided to let her know that she would be giving all of her information to the man’s car she hit and if there is no damage like she states then she does not have to worry about him contacting her. The conversation did not end well and Slacker ended up hanging up on her! Slacker is now washing his hands clean of his terrible old co-worker and hopes that karma and justice will come to her.
