World of the Weird

I started this fun segment a few months ago in our mid-morning show over 89.5 FM Subic Bay Radio called World Wide Weird news, or the Triple W news. Here, DJTommyG and I get to read and talk about the oddest news from all over the world.

The Triple W News is basically along the lines of the Corey & Jay Show, a radio program co-hosted by Corey Deitz and Jay Hamilton currently based in Little Rock, Arkansas on 100.3 The Edge. They have these segments such as Head Up Your Ass Headlines, When Animals Get Pissed, Police Blotter and a couple more wherein they read the weirdest, funniest and even the most gruesome news stories taken from different sources from around the globe.

I've listened to snippets of these segments in their website and I just rotflmfao! What makes me really fall off my chair are their hilarious remarks while reading these weird stories.

So anyway, I have yet to chance any local station doing something like this, and I figured having a segment like this in my show would really be fun, both to us jocks and to our listeners. Hence, I came up with the segment, The Triple W News (a pun on the World Wide Web since most of my material come from the triple W anyway).

And it's been a hoot so far!

If you wanna listen to the segment Triple W News, you actually can, over the triple W, err the internet. To pinkoy readers, catch us over our audio/video stream @ http://www.ustream.tv/channel/895subicbay Mondays to Fridays, 9am-12nn (GMT+8) Philippine time (o di ba ipromote ba? haha!). We interact most of the time with our viewers/listeners via chat in the stream.

While I'm at this, I'll also start posting here some of these odd stories that we feature in the radio show. Here's one that I'll probably be doing tomorrow.

Bomb Probe Turns Up Vibrator
California Highway Patrol: Man was wired for pleasure, not terror

APRIL 19--A California Highway Patrol office was briefly evacuated earlier this month when investigators became concerned that an arrestee might have been carrying a concealed explosive device. When officers collared Steven Ferrini on a drug charge, a search of the 60-year-old suspect turned up "a suspicious wire, with an on/off switch" in his pants pocket. "The wire was found to extend from the pant pocket to the subject's anus," according to a CHP report, a copy of which you'll find here. Though Ferrini claimed that the wire was connected to an anal vibrator, officers became suspicious when he subsequently "began to explain his knowledge of explosives and bomb making." So they called in El Dorado County's "explosive ordinance disposal" team and, at 5:45 AM, evacuated "all unnecessary personnel" from the CHP's South Lake Tahoe office. At about 9 AM, the bomb squad "rendered the device safe" and determined it was not dangerous. The report does not indicate why more than three hours passed before the vibrator was found not to be an explosive device. "The vibrator was subsequently removed and placed into property," according to report, which does not identify the CHP employee tasked with that unfortunate evidence collection responsibility.

(Can't wait to comment on this tomorrow, rotflmfao!)
