RECEIVED A STORY ABOUT A COUPLE who had a rather unusual wedding registry.  I don't know these folks, but you might.  They are stars of the reality show "19 Kids & Counting."  Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard ask for some of the usual stuff, towels, comforters, etc.  However they also included a shotgun, a rifle, ammo, neon colored duct tape, gift cards from Burger King, Cracker Barrel, cereal, etc.  I guess that's how you get your own TV show, just be weird.

HEY LADIES, HAVE YOU GOT THE frizzy blues.  The latest trend in putting an end to split ends is FIRE!  In Brazil, a stylist simply takes an open flame to the ends of your hair, which cauterizes your hair thus trapping moisture in the strand.  Don't think this trend is here yet, but it will be (especially if it works.)

MOTHER OF THE YEAR?  A Florida woman (naturally) had her two children (5 & 7 years old) branded.  Yup, she lit a stick and branded the kids so that she would know they were hers (not kidding.)  How did mom get the kids to agree?  She promised them ice cream.  Can you say child abuse?

NEXT TIME YOU GO FOR BANANAS at Wal Mart, scope those 'nanners before grabbing them.  A guy in Pennsylvania reached into a box of bananas and got a scorpion.  The most unusual part of this story is........he's not suing...yet.

DUMBEST HUMANS ON THE PLANET?  Two brain surgeons in Florida (natch) were serving time in prison for murder, burglary, etc. and decided it would be a great idea to smuggle a gun into the lockup and then shoot themselves. This way they could sue the state for reduced sentences.  Friends, family members, a fellow inmate and girlfriends who helped smuggle the gun into the Columbia Correction Institution, cracked and now this happy family can all be together again.

SHOULD THE POPE BE DISSING THE MOB?  I'll have this story for you tomorrow.  Another interesting topic could be, who decides if a word is offensive or not (think Redskins).  Join me from 9am until noon tomorrow morning on 640 WHLO.  JIM
