Random Blogging For Tuesday September 3rd

Good Morning!  Oh here we go, back to work.. Hey at least it's a short week right?  Here's what you missed on today's show.

The Morning Brain Buster:

Q: According to Men's Health Magazine, men will spend an average of one month of their life doing THIS. 

A: Look for missing socks 

 

Bonehead Of The Day:

A New York sandwich shop has been playing Christmas music for weeks.

With summer temperatures near 90 degrees, diners were surprised to hear Christmas music playing-- and the store has reportedly received several complaints about the music.

Employees explained that the music is determined at the corporate office and played through ‘machines' or ‘boxes' they have no control over other than turn on or off.

Even the managers don't know what's going on, and have been forced to conduct business in silence or continue spreading holiday cheer.

Man Pays For Wedding With Comic Book

A 69-year-old Ohio man was worried about how to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, until he dug through his old comic book collection, and found a copy of Amazing Spider-Man No. 1, which he had bought for 12 cents back in 1963.

He put the comic up for auction online and made a cool $7,900 in profit, and now he's putting more of them to cover the wedding's expenses.

The big irony is that his daughter's birth was the reason that he stopped collecting comics in the first place.

They had become too expensive, and he no longer had the time to read them.

Tooth Fairy Inflation..  4 Bucks A Tooth!

A recent study has found that the average amount that the Tooth Fairy is paying for a tooth has risen to $4.

Parents, these days, want their kids to be able to brag when they compare with other kids on the playground about how much they got for their lost tooth.

Many parents ask their neighbors how much they give in order to decide what to leave. Some leave a little more for the first tooth a child loses and then less after that.

Of course there are big discrepancies - which parents might have to explain to their kids why their friend found $20 when they only found $3.
