As heard on the January 26th show:
1. Zoo Offers Unique Way to Get Even With Ex
Had an ugly break-up lately? The San Francisco Zoo has an offer for you. In honor of Valentines Day you can "adopt" a hissing cockroach or a giant scorpion and in honor of an ex special someone. The zoo sends a certificate and stuffed stinger to the person who inspired the donation. Charming.
2. Wheel Of Fortune Stupidity
The answer is NOT "The Pointed Desert" no matter how many times you say it LOL. Not only does this guy shout the same wrong answer as the contestant before him, but then he doubled down on it.
3. Crazy Things Found By the TSA
No one loves the TSA, but you have to love the fact that they did stop over 2,000 guns from getting on planes this year, which is like 6 guns each day. We talk about some of the crazier items that found their way on the TSA's radar in 2014.
