Friday Show Prep – Beloved Family Pet Edition

A Staten Island couple has a brand new member of their family. They’ve just picked up a pet horse. Apparently they did some homework and realized there isn’t specifically a law against such things. The couple spent close to $5,000 building a stable in their driveway and now try to ride their horse at least every few days. They even tried to ride the horse through a drive-thru, but were refused service. (You might say, they said “Nay”) A horse certainly has quite a few practical uses, but if you could have any 1,000+ pound animal as a pet, what would you choose? I’d go with a hippo. They just lay around in the water, and you get to throw whole watermelons at them and watch them go to town.

News from my former stomping grounds: An Alabama woman concerned that her methamphetamine may have been tainted with another drug asked police to test her stash. She was arrested on a felony narcotics possession charge and booked into the county jail. She is being held in lieu of $2500 bail. But at least she doesn’t have to worry about tainted speed.

As some criminals are going through a process of dumbening, others are using our technological age to their advantage. A man is accused of using a drone to scope out food carts. The thief took tablets, business checks, loose change, stickers, a first aid kit and other items. Listen, I’m not saying they shouldn’t throw the book at this guy, but you have to be a little impressed with the mad remote flying skills displayed by this guy.

A North Carolina mother is accused of trading her child for a car. They tried to trade their 1 year old for a 1992 Plymouth Laser. All people involved are currently in jail… well, except for the kid, obviously. The kid is being cared for by other family members. I think the biggest crime here is the fact that these people were so stupid that they believed a 1992 Plymouth Laser was worth trading anything for. That alone shows they did not have the intelligence needed to make sure this child was going to grow up to be a fully intelligent member of society.

Keith Conrad got his first job in radio in Huntsville, Alabama the day after the 2000 Presidential election when he was a freshman in college. He’s produced radio shows in Huntsville, Milwaukee, WI, Atlanta, GA and finally back in his hometown of Chicago. Currently he lives in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood steps away from the Red Line. The train goes by so often you don’t even notice it. Keith has been dabbling in the Internet arts for a while now, in various roles both professional and just for fun.
