  • Red Solo Cup a Ripoff?

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    Is Toby Keith's party anthem "Red Solo Cup" a ripoff?

    Texas hip hop artist Carlton Zeus released a song and video over a year ago called "Sharpie Solo Cup".  His fans are up in arms claiming Toby "cant come up with his own song or video. what a rip-off........."

    According to one Twitter comment: "This is too much of a coincidence to not be a copy. Carlton Zeus had the original. If you watch both videos, they both start off at the hotel room door, same lighting and everything. Toby Keith had a higher budget but a horrible song. Carlton Zeus all the way!"

    No comment (yet) from Toby's camp.

    Here's a video of Carlton addressing the comments. 

  • 92 year old Woman's Bucket list: drive a NASCAR

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    A 92-year-old woman got to check another thing off her bucket list: racing on a NASCAR track.

    When she was 89 she went hang gliding, when she turned 90 she went skydiving, and she had to wait until she turned 92 for the NASCAR race.

    A 50-year-old man who helps seniors fulfill their dreams helped make it all happen. He called the Irwindale Speedway in CA, and they said as long as she had a valid license, she could go for a spin.

    No word on how fast she got to go.

  • Pennsylvania Couple Attacked by Bear in Living Room

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    black bearRich Moyer awoke at 3am Monday morning to the sound of his dog barking outside. When he got up to let him in a bear came in too and threw him to the ground. In an effort to save his dog he began wrestling the bear. 

    Rich's wife Angela heard the commotion and came downstairs to see what was happening and the bear threw her onto the patio. Her husband came to her rescue telling the local television station: "After that I go outside to see what happened and I see the bear on top of her on the patio. And I literally dove in to take that bear off of her, and in doing that then, that's when the bear tried to make a meal out of me, and started tearing my head apart."

    Suddenly the bear got bored, stopped and walked back into the woods. Rich ended up needing 37 staples and 37 stitches to put his head back together. He also had numerous cuts and puncture wounds on his face and arms. Not nearly as bad as it could've been had he been a smaller man (he is 6'6" and 300 pounds). Luckily the couple's 10 year old son slept through the whole thing.

    Have you ever had a wild animal in your home?

  • Taylor Swift donates books

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    Taylor Swift has donated 6,000 volumes to the local library in Reading, Penn.

    Swift grew up in nearby Wyomissing (and wasn't able to attend yesterday's event).

    Swift partnered with publisher Scholastic Inc. to donate the books for children and young adults. The titles were chosen by local librarians.

    Her reps told library officials she wanted to help economically troubled libraries.

    Librarians say Swift's books will be marked with a white star on the spine and a sticker inside. They say they hope Swift's popularity will motivate more children and teens to read.
