Pranksters, I’ve Got Your Number!

Okay, I know kids--and maybe adults--can be a little mischeivous this time of year, well, on Halloween Night, but sometime this week, I became the victim of an unusual prank.

Giant Hogweed the ‘Jaws’ of the Plant World

Remember that great line from "Jaws?" "We're gonna need a bigger boat?" Well, if faced with the giant hogweed that's creeping across the American Northeast, you might say, "We're gonna need a bigger weed killer." Seriously, I don't think anything would make Mary Mary any more contrary than if this thing popped up in her garden. I can see the interview now, "So Mary Mary, how DOES your garden grow?" Mary Mary: "Well, it's not! I've got a giant hogweed and the sap is toxic. Leave me alone."

Now Serving: Burgers from a Test Tube

Remember this? "Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." How about this one? "Hold the pickles. Hold the lettuce. Special orders don't upset us. All we ask is that you let us serve it your way!" Those iconic jingles for McDonald's (the former) and Burger King (the latter)--created more than 30 years ago--became part of the American lexicon and only intensified the magnitude of the legendary burger chains' popularity.  Now, let's see 'em try to rewrite the legendary jingles and incorporate "test tube."

Kentucky Interstate Sign Warns Drivers of Zombies

With the exception of AMC's great series "The Walking Dead," most zombie entertainment is difficult to take seriously. Even the "classic" horror film "The Night of the Living Dead" is now hard to watch without laughing. By the

Fire Safety Week Reminds Me of Bizarre and Dangerous Rescue

My dad was the ultimate rubber-necker. You know how most people, due to simple human nature, will slow down or stop if they see a wreck or a fire? Dad would actually get out of the car to get a closer look--in some cases, a MUCH closer look. That was usually because he knew most of the police or fire department. Nonetheless, that was no excuse--in my opinion--for a stunt he pulled on U.S. 431 just south of Owensboro when I was a little kid.

Ladies, Check Out The New Meat-Scented Perfume!

I've always found the whole notion of PERFUME a little silly.  I've known some gals who will literally power-wash themselves with it in an effort to land a man!  But, think about this for a second!   Do men really seek out women who smell like lilacs, jasmine and honeysuckle?  I'm pretty sure most guys don't even have a clue what hyacinth is so why in the flip would you want to smell like it?  I mean, for real!  Are you trying to attract a burly, studly man or a hummingbird?  But, alas!!  There's a brand new fragrance on the market guaranteed to get your man's attention and have his mouth watering at first sight and sniff of you!   It's called QUE!

I’m Only Two Degrees Separated From Howie Mandel!

You've heard about the Six Degrees of Separation, right?  It's a theory that everyone on Earth is separated by just six degrees or less.  Basically it works like this.  As an example . . . we'll see how may degrees separate me from. . . let's say . . . Gwyneth Paltrow.  I, of course, know Jaclyn Graves.  Jaclyn knows Blake Shelton.  Blake Shelton is good buddies with Cee Lo Green!  And Cee Lo Green performed with Gwyneth Paltrow on The Grammys!   OMG!!  I'm just FOUR degrees separated from Gwyneth Paltrow!  (And just FIVE from Coldplay!)  Now, thanks to an old college friend of mine, I'm just TWO degrees separated from HOWIE MANDEL!
