Random Blogging For Tuesday October 22nd

Well helloo!  Happy Tuesday.. Can't believe Halloween is sooo close!  What are you going to be this year?  Yes I still dress up for Halloween.. I'm never growing up!!  Not sure what i'll be this year, but i'm sure it will be fun.  Here's what you missed on today's show.

The Morning Brain Buster:

Q.   The Average American will spend over 145 hours a month doing this. What?

A.   Watching TV!

 

Bonehead Of the Day:

A Tennessee cop was fired after he fired his gun in a Dollar General store... trying to catch a squirrel.

The officer stepped in when animal control couldn't make it out and started firing at the squirrel. He also used mace and pepper spray.

Customers spotted the dead squirrel under the cop's shoe.

Cops in the town have to write an explanation about why they fired their weapon but he refused to do that and was fired.

It is not known how many shots he fired and the store will not release the surveillance tapes.

Spongebob Grave Stones?  They're Real!

On Valentine's Day, a 28-year-old soldier was found dead in a Cincinnati hotel room; her boyfriend has been charged with murder.

After the shooting, the family took care of the funeral and burial plans. They got special headstones installed for the woman and her twin sister, who is still alive. Now, the cemetery is saying the memorials have to go.

The problem: the gravestones are shaped like SpongeBob SquarePants, the dead woman's favorite character.

The cemetery initially approved the plan, and the family erected two 6'8", 7,000-lb headstones, which cost $13,000 each. The family also bought six plots in the cemetery. But a day after the installation, the cemetery said the headstones weren't appropriate for the site.

The family and the cemetery are going to meet to discuss.

** coming soon to eBay… two Spongebob gravestones

Life Altering Invention:  Clothes That Don't Stain

A New York woman has created children's clothes that don't stain.

She is raising money for her "No More Bibs" line of clothing. She is looking to raise $40,000.

She said the clothes are made of cotton and the outer layer of the clothes is made of a fabric that repels liquid. The website says the clothes will repel 99% of liquids including, blood, drool, chocolate, ice cream, mud, paint and oil.

As of Monday, she had raised over $4,000 and has another 21 days to reach her goal. Donations can be made on her website Kickstarter.
