  • My Dream - & AWESOME Reality Show Idea

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Guess What?!?!

    I've had a few ideas for reality shows over the years and I can't believe nobody has done them yet.

    I had a crazy dream the other night, you know, the kind that you wake up and are freaking out because you think it's REAL.

    With 3 kids under 3, my wife and I have talked about whether we're "done" or not yet...we haven't totally decided but think we are.

    Anyway, I dreamt that my wife (and her sister, who also has 3 kids under 5) suprised me in my basement with positive pregnancy tests...

    Then I freaked out...went through a whole range of emotions.  Angry...sad (I was crying in my dream), then excited...flabbergasted....etc...

    So I woke up and BANG!  It hit me...why hasn't somebody turned this into a reality show?!?!?

    It could be called "GUESS WHAT...." and it would follow couples around and suprise husbands with pregnancy tests.   I know it sounds a little "Jerry Springer", but they could do it so it wouldn't be trashy (if it was on TLC) or make it trashy (might get better ratings lol) and put it on E! or something....

    Okay, so if anybody runs with this idea...I WANT A CUT OF THE MONEY YOU MAKE!!

    There's BEEF on Twitter between Eminem's Daughter Hailey and Taylor Swift.  Appearantly, Hailey is a HUGE fan of Harry Styles of One Direction and isn't happy that he and Taylor are dating. (C'mon, does ANYONE think it's going to last really?!?!  She's just getting material for another song!)

    Anyway, check out the article here!  http://www.examiner.com/article/eminem-s-daughter-hailie-slams-taylor-swift-on-twitter-over-harry-styles

  • If You've Ever Got Your Lunch Stolen from Work Fridge - Check out This Technique

    Posted by Corey Carter

    We've all brought food to work at some point in our career and used the "community" fridge.

    And, unfortunately, we've all had our food stolen at some point.  (If you work in a place that has more than like 10 employees and this HAS NEVER happened to you, tell me - I'm amazed!!)

    Last week I openend our fridge here at Midwest Communications and I found this, which I thought was kinda funny for a few reasons that I'll explain below...

    I'm imaging that somebody had this bright idea to greatly reduce the possibility of getting their salad dressing taken.


    Duke Ranch in Fridge


    (BTW: Duke is Duke Wright, the owner of Midwest Communications including WIXX and 5 other stations in Green Bay/Appleton and over 60 total in the Midwest...he's the guy who signs ALL of our paychecks - but a nice guy I might add...)

    Reason's why this is a FAIL:

    1-I've NEVER witnessed Duke eat a Salad at work.  Knowing what I know if him, he might enjoy a salad at home or at a restaurant, but bringing a salad (and then salad dressing) to work, is just not the way he rolls.

    2-Even if he DID bring salad to work and bring his own dressing...would he really take time to use a red Sharpie to put his name...IN ALL CAPS and underlined ?!?!?  

    3-I'm 98% sure this Otis' handwriting.  

    Okay - please share with me any humorous stories you might have about people stealing food at work...or how you or somebody else may have prevented it from happening. Comment below!!

  • Sad Day for Elmo

    Posted by Corey Carter


    This story from TMZ.COM

    Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo, has resigned from Sesame Street ... in the immediate wake of a new lawsuit accusing him of having sex with an underage boy -- the second such allegation in 2 weeks.

    TMZ broke the story ... Clash is being sued by Cecil Singleton, who claims he met Kevin in a gay phone chat back in '93 ... when he was 15 and Clash was 32.

    Sesame Workshop says, "Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street."

    Sesame Workshop had previously told TMZ, "Elmo is bigger than any one person."
