Delta Pilot Goes Crazy On An Air Traffic Controller!

This weekend, a Delta pilot and an air traffic controller got into an argument…and it was all caught on tape!!!

A Delta pilot used the wrong runway in Atlanta and is unhappy when the air traffic controller corrects him.

We have a clip for you…the two runways are referred to as ‘Mike’ and ‘Lima’. The third voice at the end is another pilot telling the first pilot, ‘Captain Happy’, to settle down.


Where Does Your Teenager Keep Their Phone At Night?

13-year-old ARIEL TOLFREE put her Samsung Galaxy S4 under her pillow before going to bed. Halfway through the night, a burning smell woke her up.  Turns out, the phone caught fire under her pillow.

The fire, which also singed her mattress and pillow, was caused by a replacement battery.  Samsung has promised to replace the phone and the other damaged items.

For the record, the phone does come with the following warning: “Covering the device with bedding… poses a possible risk of fire or explosion.”


How To Deal With A Traffic Jam!

A freeway in Los Angeles was at a standstill on Friday, because someone climbed onto an overpass sign and wouldn’t come down.

Now, when we say, ‘Stand still”, we don’t mean a backup like we have here in Memphis, where the traffic slowly crawls at about 5mph.  This was truly a “Stand still.”  Nobody was moving for a long time.

So one guy got out of his car and set up a TABLE in one of the lanes, and other drivers got out and played POKER with him.

No Noisy Americans Allowed!

A pub in Ireland is advising “noisy Americans” to take their business elsewhere.

Peter’s Place Café in Waterville posted a sign that reads: “No Bus/Coach tours or loud American’s. Thank you.”

The pub is on a major tourist bus route and thousands of Americans pass through yearly, bringing money into the local economy.  The local Waterville Business Association promises the sign “in no way represents the views of Waterville businesses or the community as a whole” and “Americans are always welcome.”


A Criminal Writes “Y’all Will Never Catch Me” on a Police Department’s Facebook Page . . . They Catch Him the Next Day

28-year-old Roger Ray Ireland of Edgewater, Maryland has a warrant out for his arrest for violating probation.

And the Anne Arundel County, Maryland police department does something called “Wanted Wednesdays” where they make old-school wanted posters for people with warrants, and posts them on Facebook.  Last Wednesday, they posted one for Roger.

But when he found out it was on Facebook, he left a COMMENT on it . . . saying, quote, “Y’all will never catch me.”

That clearly made the cops more motivated to catch him.  They tracked him down in Baltimore the next day.

Stupid Criminals!!!

57-Year-Old Actor Steven Bauer Is Dating an 18-Year-Old

If you don’t recognize the name STEVEN BAUER, he’s the 57-year-old actor who played Al Pacino’s best friend in “Scarface”.  And now he plays a private investigator named Avi on the Showtime series “Ray Donovan”.

But he’s in the news because he showed up to the premiere of the WOODY ALLEN movie “Magic in the Moonlight” with the 18-YEAR-OLD he’s dating.

Naturally, it’s reminding some people of when actor DOUG HUTCHISON married COURTNEY STODDEN three years ago.  At the time, he was 50, and she was 16.  They separated last year.

Check out a photo of them at the premiere by clicking here.


Aretha Franklin Was Scolded for Sitting Down to Eat at a Johnny Rockets, Because She’d Ordered Her Food as “Takeout”? 

Last week, ARETHA FRANKLIN hit up a Johnny Rockets in the Niagara Falls area after a gig.  Aretha ordered a meal TO GO . . . but apparently, she was too hungry to wait, so she sat down at one of the tables inside to eat.

A server SCOLDED her for doing that, telling her she wasn’t allowed to eat takeout inside.  Aretha says the worker was, quote, “very rude, unprofessional and nasty.”  She stormed out without finishing her meal.

The owner of that Johnny Rockets says he’s sorry, and called the worker a, quote, “new and very young employee.”  Apparently, the employee won’t be fired, but was REMINDED about the “takeout policies.”


The Woman Tim McGraw Smacked Wants an Apology . . . And Probably a Payday

The woman TIM MCGRAW smacked for grabbing and ripping his jeans at a concert earlier this month has hired a personal injury attorney.

They’ve contacted Tim’s people but there’s no word if a lawsuit has been filed.

She says she didn’t mean to grab him, and she’s feeling “humiliated” by all the press and asking for an apology, but you don’t need a lawyer for that.

It sounds like they’re trying to set up her innocence so she can score a big payday.

Road RageRoad Rage Is Not Healthy!

This story will prove that we all need to calm down behind the wheel.

48-year-old Joseph H. Carl of Gainesville, Florida was driving home from a bar in his pickup truck on Tuesday night, when he rear-ended a car stopped at a red light.  That sent him into uncontrollable road rage.

He got out of his truck, ran up to the other driver’s car, and started banging on the windows.  Obviously the guy was freaked out, so he sped off.

But it turns out Joseph hadn’t put his truck in “park.”  It was standing still because it was still smashed into the car . . . but when the other guy took off, Joseph’s truck started rolling . . . and he got RUN OVER by his own truck.

He wound up with a broken hand, a broken foot, and a DUI.

According to doctors, the young man now has a full set of 28 teeth.

PARIS HILTON is still full of herself after all these years.  In a recent interview with the UK’s Telegraph she bragged about being a true Aquarius, who tend to be “social butterflies, humanitarians” and geniuses –like ALBERT EINSTEIN!

Many of us don’t know this, but Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy are family.  And they hate each other!!!

So when JENNY MCCARTHY marries DONNIE WAHLBERG, her cousin MELISSA MCCARTHY won’t be there.  A source says it’s because they’re feuding . . . quote, “They were close at one time, but they’ve grown distant over the past few years.

Jenny feels she helped Melissa get a leg up in the business.  But now that Melissa’s career is skyrocketing, Jenny feels [Melissa] doesn’t have time for her.”

A Man Drops 140 Pounds . . . By Working at McDonald’s?

Want to permanently lose your desire to eat fast food?  Here’s the best way we can think of:  Work at a FAST FOOD place, and see what it looks like before it’s served.

27-year-old Colin Moore of Durham, England managed to lose 140 pounds in a year . . . by working at McDonald’s.

By being at McDonald’s, constantly smelling their burgers and being around the food as it was prepared IMMEDIATELY turned him off of fast food.

It inspired him to switch his diet to things like fruit, lean meat, rice cakes, chicken, and vegetables.  He lost 18 pounds in his first month as a McDonald’s employee . . . and now, just a little over a year later, he’s down 140 pounds and weighs 203.

He’s still working at McDonald’s . . . although now that his story is getting some press, I can’t imagine their PR department is going to want him working there much longer.

Here are some before and after photos of Colin.


Boy Banned From Donut Shop: After Asking If Woman Is Pregnant

The mom apologized to the woman, who didn’t think it was a big deal. But the next time Rebecca and Justin went to the shop, they were asked to leave because the boy was “rude.”

Did Justin Bieber Use a Wheelchair at Disneyland to Cut Lines? 

JUSTIN BIEBER was spotted in a WHEELCHAIR at Disneyland over the weekend, which caused OUTRAGE on the Internet among people who deduced that he was only using it to cut the long ride lines.

But Justin’s people say he’s nursing a knee injury . . .  and they also pointed out that Disney already escorts him onto rides to avoid large crowds, so he doesn’t even need a wheelchair to cut ahead.

LeBron James Apologized for the Media Circus in His Neighborhood, By Sending His Neighbors

It definitely doesn’t sound fun to be one of JUSTIN BIEBER’S neighbors.  But earlier this month, it wasn’t all that easy living in LEBRON JAMES’ neighborhood in Northeast Ohio either.

In the days leading up to his decision to come back to Cleveland . . . and in the aftermath . . . a ton of fans and media types camped out around his house.

Well, Justin should take note:  Because LeBron just did something awesome.  He sent his neighbors a dozen gourmet CUPCAKES, along with an apology.

Wet Nose Wednesday – Chino

Every Wednesday at 8:40, Guardian Angel Pet Rescue joins the Mike and Mandy show to showcase a special animal that needs a good home.

This week’s featured pet is Chino.


Chino is a 1-2 year old male Shih Tzu that weighs 23 pounds. Chino has had a rough life so far and is looking for person with a big heart that would like to show him that there are good people out there. His previous family stuck in him the yard and did nothing but give him food and water. His fur became so matted that it took a week of careful, slow snipping to get it loose. The mats were so tight that they drew Chino’s fur up, painfully… On top of this when he was attacked by a dog (no doubt a big one) injuring his eye and the owner failed take him to the vet. This was Chino’s condition when he was rescued. Since then Chino had his eye operated on, it had to be removed as it had gotten infected but is now healing well. Because Chino was left out during thunder storms he is afraid of loud noises. In the last few weeks Chino has blossomed, becoming a sweet, loving little guy that likes to play with small dogs (he’s afraid of big dogs). His fur has not yet grown in enough for him to be groomed properly but he will look very cute once a little more time has passed. Since he has been blind in 1 eye since it was injured he is used to this and it does not hamper his activities at all. Chino can’t wait to find his new forever home and be shown the love, care and attention he has never received prior to being rescued!

If you would like to adopt this week’s dog…please click here to fill out an electronic adoption form.

We couldn’t do Wet Nose Wednesday without the generous support of our sponsor, Dixie Memorial Pet Cemetery.

1azbMY.AuSt.77A Guy Ran Inside a Building to Hide from the Cops . . . But It Turned Out to Be a Police Academy

Last Wednesday, a cop in Biloxi, Mississippi saw 30-year-old Roger Beasley driving down the street, and knew from an earlier encounter that he didn’t have a license.

But when he tried to pull him over, Roger jumped out of his car and took off on foot, but then he tried to run into a building to hide . . . and it turned out to be a POLICE ACADEMY.

There were even marked police cars parked out front.  Apparently Roger didn’t notice, because he made it all the way to the front door.

Naturally, he was outnumbered and arrested.

Stupid Criminals!

He’s charged with resisting arrest, driving without a license, and they also found a bunch of CRACK on him so his most serious charge is possession with intent to distribute.


Disturbing News 

Two guys were hired by a real estate group to clean out a vacant house that went into default a few months ago and the home buyers vanished.  Or did they vanish?

The two guys found a mannequin hanging in the garage.  So they threw it in the big dumpster along with the rest of the junk and took it to a local landfill.

When they were in the process of emptying the dumpster, they realized that the mannequin was actually a man who’d committed SUICIDE several weeks earlier.
