Weekends

If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about absolute disaster people. In that spirit, each night during the 9 and 10 o’clock hours I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia. (because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.) Fridays are a special wildcard edition where I ask you to determine if the stories are homegrown crazy or imported from other countries. Here are tonight’s stories:

Escaped hamster braves freezing temperatures to get to candy store

Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Animal rescuers in Scotland are searching for the owners of an escaped hamster that braved sub-freezing temperatures to make its way to a candy store. The Scottish SPCA said the hamster was caught on CCTV footage clinging to a person who entered the Poundland candy shop in Glasgow on New Year's Eve.

Chickens Wreak Havoc on Customers in a New Jersey McDonald's

This is one funny story and I think everyone probably deserves a laugh today. Washington Township, (the one located in Warren County) were called to a McDonald's on Route 31 because there were some chickens who were harassing customers. No joke. They were walking around the McDonald's chasing customers and even pecking their little beaks at some car tires.

Be sure to tune in Monday through Friday nights at 9 and 10pm if you want to play along.
