Today we shared some off-beat stories from around the world…

Our first was from China, where a man trying to fix his washing machine (above) got his head stuck…CLICK HERE for the story…

Next we head to Hungary, where the grave digging profession needed a little public relations boost!  See the story HERE.

…and back to the good ol’ USA, where we find there is actually hot dog etiquette?  Mustard trumps ketchup? Yes, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council! CLICK HERE for more.

For Song Poetry, out featured lyrics were from “Eye of the Storm” from Ryan Stevenson and Gabe Real. Congratulations to Samantha from Mount Vernon, who won the $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley.

Today’s Name That Tune song was “Everlasting God” by Lincoln Brewster. Marian from Danville was our winner of the Troyer’s certificate.

Our Word of the Day is MacGuffin – a movie term originated by Alfred Hitchcock, which speaks to an object, event, or character in a film or story that serves to set and keep the plot in motion despite usually lacking intrinsic importance. An example would be the Ark of the Covenant from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Thanks for listening!
