KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST reportedly spend $500,000 on a decoy for their daughter North, so the real kid won’t get harassed by the paparazzi.

Two Harvard Students Invented the World’s First Cake Batter Spray Can

Two students at Harvard University named John McCallum and Brooke Nowakowski have invented and patented CAKE BATTER in a spray can.  Is this the best invention to come out of Harvard since Facebook?  Maybe it’s even better.

Instead of having to make your OWN cake batter using a mix, eggs, and water like some caveman, now you just shake up the can and spray batter right into a pan.

The spray batter has a more consistent flavor, and it has fewer chemicals than regular cake mix.  It also cooks faster than regular cake batter, you can bake a cake in ONE MINUTE.

John and Brooke got a patent, and now they’re working on finding a manufacturer to get it in stores.


Stupid Criminals!!! A Woman Who Stole a Dress Is Busted When She Posts Selfies on Facebook

Social media keeps getting better and better at taking down Stupid Criminals.

27-year-old Danielle Saxton of West Frankfort, Illinois stole a leopard print dress from a store earlier this month.  And then she took a few selfies in the dress and posted them on FACEBOOK.

One of the store’s co-owners also went on Facebook, and posted about the dress being stolen.

And since West Frankfort has a population of only around 8,000 people, there was obviously some overlap between the owner’s friends and Danielle’s friends.

A few people immediately pointed him to Danielle’s selfies, he called the cops, and Danielle was just arrested for misdemeanor retail theft.

Wet Nose Wednesday: Clipper

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 Clipper.


Clipper is a 8-9 lb. male black Chihuahua mix who was rescued from MAS. He is a little shy at first, but warms up really quickly without any of the fearbiting of some little ones. He goes from skittish to tongue in your month in nothing flat. He is heartworm negative, current on vaccinations, rabies, neutered and microchipped. He gets along well with other dogs. And he is really a snuggler. This little guy will make a more mature home a great pet. I believe he would be great with older children, but toddlers might be a little much for him.

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

Someone Stole a Car in Miami and Drove It to Washington in Two Days

Someone in Miami, Florida stole a Jeep Patriot from a bank parking lot on June 30th.  And two days later, on July 2nd, it turned up . . . in Blaine, Washington.

That’s a 3,400-mile drive.  Google Maps estimates it would take 47 to 50 hours to get there . . . if you made ZERO stops.

And since the car turned up in Washington about 48 hours after it disappeared, that means whoever stole it must’ve driven without stopping to sleep, or even sit down for a meal.

The cops don’t have any suspects yet, and they’re working on getting the Jeep back to the owner in Florida.


Toddler Saves Elderly Man Trapped In Hot Car

Bob King was waiting for his wife at Knoxville’s Vestal Baptist Church when he realized he was stuck inside the car because the doors automatically locked and he didn’t have any keys to unlock them or open the windows.

It was 91 degrees outside and well over 100 degrees in the car.

Bob noticed a 3-year old child walking by and started beating on the windows to get his attention.  Then he shouted to the toddler to go get help.

So, the 3-year old ran to his pastor, repeating the word “locked,” then saying “hot, hot.” He grabbed the Pastor’s hand and led him to the car.

The Pastor was able to open the car door, at which point King fell out of the car, his “whole body raining with sweat.”


A Vietnam Vet With No Legs Can’t Get a New Wheelchair From the VA . . . So Lowe’s Fixed It For Free

Michael Sulsona of Graniteville, New York is a veteran who lost both his legs in 1971, when he stepped on a landmine in Vietnam.  He’s been in a wheelchair ever since . . . and not a good one.

He’s been trying to get the Veterans Administration to give him a new wheelchair for the past two years, but the VA wouldn’t do it.

Then on Monday Michael was shopping at a Lowe’s when his wheelchair broke AGAIN!  So a few Lowe’s employees jumped into action, grabbed a bunch of parts, and spent 45 minutes working on Michael’s wheelchair.  They even covered the cost of all the parts . . . and now it was works perfectly.

Michael says he tried to thank them, but they kept saying it was their honor.

A Corpse Fell Out of a Coroner’s Van in Pennsylvania and Rolled Down the Street

With all the delivery trucks on the road on a daily basis, it’s inevitable one of them won’t secure its cargo.  You just don’t expect it to be THIS kind of cargo.

And it was on a gurney with wheels . . . so it started rolling down the street.

Fortunately, the driver managed to stop the van and recover it before it rolled too far.

And she says she survived because she never woke up.

Quote, “Because I was still asleep, my body was in a relaxed state when I hit . . . if I had been awake and tense the injuries would’ve been catastrophic.”

A “Get Together” At Paris Hilton’s House Turns Into A Brawl

Paris Hilton and a few friends were hanging out at her home early Sunday morning when a brawl broke out that left her brother, Barron Hilton, injured, and former Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson in need of stitches.

Jeremy Jackson alleges that he was jumped by Paris and her friends.

Paris Hilton has a totally different take on what happened. She told police that 5 or 6 of her friends were hanging out at her house when Jeremy Jackson came over uninvited. When they asked him to leave, Jeremy went crazy and screamed,  “Don’t you know who I am?  I was on ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Celebrity Rehab’.” Then, he grabbed one of her friends and started to choke him. Several people jumped in to break up the fight and Jeremy was hit over the head with a vodka bottle.

When police arrived, no one wanted to press charges so no arrests were made.

If you ask me, the best way to avoid getting gored during the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain is . . . NOT ATTEND the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

Bill is in Spain right now, and yesterday . . . HE GOT GORED BY A BULL.

A 1,300-pound bull got him twice in the right thigh.  He was listed in serious condition and had to have surgery.

A Guy in New York Found a Dead Rat in His Wrap

With a sandwich, you can basically see what you’re eating, but with wraps and burritos, you’re GAMBLING when you bite in, right?

A Woman Finds Out Her House Was a Serial Killer’s Torture Chamber . . . When She Sees It on an A&E Cold Case Documentary

Catrina McGhaw signed a lease for a house in Ferguson, Missouri back in March.  As far as she knew, it was just a nice, normal suburban house outside St. Louis.  NOPE.

On top of that, Catrina’s landlord is the killer’s MOTHER!!!  Catrina says she never told her about what happened in the house.

Naturally she wanted to get out of the lease, but Sandra wouldn’t let her.  She finally went to the St. Louis Housing Authority, who got Sandra to agree to let Catrina out by the end of this month.

Cops in Oklahoma tried to pull over 34-year-old Luz Avilla of Chickasha, Oklahoma for drunk driving earlier this week.  Then she led the cops on a high-speed chase as she raced toward Caddo County, which is the next county over.

When she finally pulled over, she told the cops she’d fled because Caddo County’s jail is NICER than Grady County’s . . . so she wanted to make it into Caddo to get locked up there.

Unfortunately for her, she stopped just a few miles before the county line, so she was arrested and taken to the jail she DIDN’T like.

We don’t know the crimes she committed in the past that allowed her to spend so much time in various local jails.

Wet Nose Wednesday – Mocha

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 Mocha.


Mocha and last week’s featured dog, Cocoa are bothers that have been living as outside dogs for the last several years in the hot Memphis summers and recent frigid winters. Their owner decided to surrender them to rescue so they could be adopted by someone who wanted to give them the love and attention they deserve. Mocha is an 8-10 year old Shih Tzu that weighs about 10 pounds. He is heartworm negative, neutered, up to date on shots and just had his teeth cleaned. Mocha is starting to get some gray in his eyes and follows Cocoa in and out of the house so they should be adopted together. He is a very cute, sweet little love bug that get along with children, cats and other dogs. Mocha is kenneled at night to house train him and would do well with a doggie door (not required though). Cocoa and Mocha can’t wait to find their forever home inside their new family’s house so they can soak up all the love and attention they deserve and have missed out on for most of their life.
