America runs on...
It sure ain't Dunkin' Donuts but the good towns' folk of Vassalboro, Maine don't seem to care. Since the new Grand View Coffee Cafe pranced out their topless waitstaff nobody's paid much attention to the menu - or the prices. Ignore those news stories about all the vocal protests, this town is hooked. Caffeine and prurient exhibitionism, yum! It's l'affaire grande! (eat your heart out, Florida!)
Our feature tune on this special weekend episode is I Like the Way You Move by New Jersey's Blue Number Nine with vocalist -songwriter -musician Stefanie Seskin. Like all the tunes we play you can find this one on the Podsafe Music Network.

Hey hon pass the TP
Much as YCMIU despises bathroom humor, this product is no joke. For the couple who have e v e r y thing... potty-for-2. Bet that just made filling your holiday gift list a whole lot less stressful.
You want a silicone injection, where?
Keeping with the theme, the headline reads: woman playing doctor busted for illegal cosmetic surgery. Her patients won't be sitting for awhile. That's what you get for turning the other...ugh!
So that's what heavy metal means
South Carolina law officers were a big hit with some forgetful guys this Lovers Day when they took a page from the Axel Rose song book. Result? Bouquets for the women. A few more firearms off the street. Everybody wins!
Start spreadin' the news
Now there's something else for Philadelphians to hate about New York. And they can thank their transit authority. Here's a tip: stick to making the trains run on time and leave graphic arts to Soho.
Yes we realize that's redundant. But here's a guy who takes double-digit IQ blog responses to a whole new level of idiocy. As a public service, we name him.
Our feature tune this show is Matthew Ebel's Drive Away. He's the third most heard artist in podcasts on the PodSafe Music Network. Adam Curry himself says, "Oh yeah, top-down drivin' around music... feeling alive, awake, and full of fun." That's high praise. You can download this tune here.

Senators, check your pacemakers
Those geezers on Capitol Hill will need to see their cardiologists if Stormy Daniels gets elected. When a sex scandal visited Louisiana Republican senator, David Vitter it was time to fight fire with... well... porn. Ms. Daniels is an adult entertainer (hey, she has a mom) whose fans started a "Draft Stormy" movement. Makes perfect sense. All her scandals are behind her. Besides, how could anyone not vote for the star of that memorable motion picture, "Camp Cuddly Pines Powertool Massacre"? (this is how we track where you go when you leave here)
Stump the Beer Fetcher?
What's that, a new low for reality TV? Sort of. We thought you'd enjoy a couple of canine stories, especially if you're a fan of Animal Planet and NASCAR. That dog 'il hunt.
On Aeroflot, vodka flies first class
Heard the one about the Russian airlines pilot too drunk to make a cabin announcement? Don't worry folks, his plane had a designated driver. Not one of those cheap, inflatable models, either.
More stupid criminal tricks
A guy robs a gas station in Sarasota, Florida and flees... until the gauge says "E". But that still doesn't top the drug thief in Philly who was caught sleeping with... well... you'll just have to listen.

No clowns at 30,000 feet
Some poor kid didn't get his in-flight birthday party thanks to those ever-vigilant airport security teams the UK is famous for. Wonder what set off the alarm- his honking nose or that cow bell around his neck? If they're gonna start frisking funny looking folks it's a good thing the royal family doesn't fly.
Ooh, ooh that smell
Ever heard of magic cheese? An entire rural village in central Chile got duped by a scam that would make Lynyrd Skynyrd proud. Meet Erica Pavez, our poster child for this week's group nominee for the Darwin Awards.
You tell Him he can't ride
Do you believe in God? That's a question being debated on London buses these days. Well, not actually inside the bus.
With 800 you win a Kia
A Korean granny has failed her driving test 771 times- and counting. Look out Florida, when she finally does get her license she'll be heading your way!

We also played 'Thank You for Calling' by George Hrab. If you like our music please share it with your friends, and be sure to tell them where you heard it!

Mommy can I stay up and catch bad guys?
He reported for duty at CPD in full uniform - except for his gun and badge. Maybe he'll get those when he turns 15. Luckily his patrol partner was armed. Not terribly bright, but at least he's a real cop.
Those kiwi crooks sure are dumb
Handcuffed together and running from the law these two forgot to signal how they planned to pass a lamp post. Imagine if it had been a billboard? The video says it all.
Dude, take my picture
Even from 20 miles up a hemp field still looks like, well... Who knew that Google has a narc squad? Next time your dad tells you, "go cut the grass" - listen to him!
We all need to make sacrifices
Nobody is immune in this economy. Even the super-rich are cutting back. Or, so it might appear. Rodeo Drive is an interesting case study in how the affluent are coping.
Give him a horse
His boss says Raymond Mulligan, a city employee of many years in West Haven CT, is a really good worker. It's just that his driving ain't so hot. So far, all the city vehicles he's totaled have posed no danger to the public. Let's see how it goes with the snow plow.
We hope you enjoy Bill Kahler's "Chicken Shack", our spotlight groove on this week's show. You can find it over on the Podsafe Music Network. You can download it here and be sure to tell your peeps where you heard it!
