Lobster tank tanked

Wednesday, Aug, 7 2013

They were heading for a pot of boiling water anyway so what's the big deal?

A restaurant in Florida has had to shut down a lobster tank claw game.

Get it? Claw game? Lobsters?

You know those arcade games with a giant claw where you try to grab a stuffed animal?

Well, at this place you tried to grab your dinner...a fresh lobster.

Someone complained.
The restaurant didn't want to offend a single person so it shut the thing down.
Why? I'm not sure.
Like I said....they were heading for boiling water and melted butter anyway.

Different week

Monday, Aug, 5 2013

I'm off Monday, enjoying some time with my wife at PhilCast SW.

Tuesday and Wednesday there will be full shows.

Thursday, if it is not raining in San Francisco there probably will be no show, since the Brewers play a west coast afternoon game that will eat up all the PhilCast time.

And Friday this week we wrap up an hour early at 5:00 to make way for the Packers' pre-season pre-game show.

An intentional mistake?

Thursday, Aug, 1 2013

So what's up with this traffic sign?

Was it an honest mistake and a funny picture?

OR

Was this done intentionally to get drivers to slow down to make sure their brains were processing what their eyes were reading?

And if that is indeed the case, was this a smart thing to do?

It's one of the stories I'll be talking about today on the PhilCast.

Boy, living in the FOX Valley really means something I guess.

This guy was taking a stroll down my street this morning.

Bold.
