A.   Songs from the Radio!

 

Bonehead Of The Day:

An Indiana man was not charged after he called 911 to say he did not get any change from the escort he overpaid for.

The man said he didn't know if it was legal or not to call and set up a time with an escort.

He paid the escort $200 because he didn't have any smaller bills, and when he asked for change, the woman threatened to hit him... and then kicked him out.

No charges were filed.

Best Dad Ever!  Wearing "Short Shorts" To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

A man in Utah has come up with a clever way to teach his daughter a lesson, and it has gone viral.

The dad was fed up with his teenage daughter's wardrobe choices. After a few weeks of being upset with her for wearing short shorts, he got an idea.

When the family was heading out for a night of dinner and activities, dad took scissors to an old pair of jeans. His "cut-offs" left little to the imagination.

When his kids noticed, they saw their dad hanging out in super short shorts. The family went to dinner, miniature golfing, and finally, when his daughter couldn't' take any more, he took them to a local ice cream joint. She begged him not to go in and the lesson had been learned.

In the end, dad said, "My daughter will always know that her dad loves her and cares about her enough to make a fool out of himself."

22 Reasons Why Being A Bears Fan Is The Worst Love/Hate Relationship Of Your Life

-- Believing at the start of every season that Jay Cutler has the potential to be an elite quarterback.
-- It's his contract year, and everyone knows you get magical powers in your contract year!
-- And having to justify Jay Cutler's inconsistent performance and bad attitude by week seven.
"But his teammates really respect him!"

-- Knowing that Devin Hester is the greatest punt returner of all time.
-- But also acknowledging Devin Hester's inability to catch a ball and run at the same time.

-- Seeing the Packers lose is getting to see the Bears win twice.
-- But the Packers haven't lost against the Bears in three years.

-- In 2007, the Bears finally went to another Super Bowl.
-- So you can stop talking about the ‘85 one!
-- Except that means we now have to remember all the painful Bears blunders from the Colts' easy victory.

-- Poppa Bear Halas' family still owns the team, which is wholesome and adorable.
-- And yet they put up with the disaster that Mike McCaskey was as the Bears' General Manager.

-- In their 2013 season opener, the Bears beat the Bengals…
-- …but not nearly as well as the Bengals beat themselves.

Parent Alert!  Warnings Don't Work..  When It Comes To Teaching Them About Risks

Warnings don't really work when trying to teach young people about risks. 

Researchers found that young people have greater difficulty in learning from bad news to understand their future risks. 

RECOMMENDATION:

To teach young people about risks, it's better to focus on the positives instead of the negative.  

For example, to stop young people from smoking, the focus would be on having more money and better skin.
