Sunday's Chicken Radio Fun House Hour of Mystery

On this morning's Scott Chicken Radio Fun House (as always on Radio KYA and Super listen on line open these URLs in your favorite audio player thingy: KYA, Super CFL - one note, the streams are having issues, so they may or may not work) we will relay the following hopefully entertaining stories:

#47 on the list of reasons I'm glad I'm not a cop: Police say cook put body hair in cop's sandwich
The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill reports police asked them not to report the incident for fear of copycat crimes. The paper published the story anyway.
And so did the AP, and now so am I. But don't get any ideas, people!

Who says the mortuary business has to be drab and sad? Mass. mortuary hopes chili cook-off brings 'life'
A Western Massachusetts funeral home is trying "bring life" to business with a chili cook-off, a murder-mystery show and free limo rides to couples on their 50th anniversaries...Among other other events sponsored by the funeral home are an art walk, a visit by the Easter Bunny, and monthly birthday cakes to the Pittsfield Senior Center.

If you're going to steal a getaway car, make sure it goes over 30. SC cop stops go-cart, arrests man on drug charges
...The deputy had heard a report of a stolen go-cart and turned on his lights and siren after spotting it less than a half mile from Sweezy's home. Sweezy is charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and public drunkenness.

Click and Clack of Car Talk fame always say "things get pretty interesting when a wheel comes off." I don't think this was the wheel they meant (although the result was the same): Man OK after steering wheel pops off while driving
... the 59-year-old man was driving his 1978 Buick on Thursday afternoon on State Route 530 when his steering wheel came off, the car left the road, went down an embankment, up the other side, and crashed into a barn. The man narrowly missed a power pole and several small barns with baby cows inside.

The wife just got off of Jury Duty...I'll have to ask her if she remembers taking the oath, otherwise the guy they convicted might just be off the hook! No oath, no conviction, Mich. court says
A Michigan man sent to prison for 15 years is getting a new trial after the judge failed to do a routine procedure - ask the jury to take an oath...Assistant prosecutor David King says his office might appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court. He says Becktel's trial attorney never objected to the lack of a jury oath.

I've heard the term "Banana Hammock", but this is rediculous: Aussie underwear has gone bananas (the product page comes complete with video featuring hunky men carrying around bananas)
Australian underwear company AussieBum has been monkeying around and the result is a range of men's underwear made with bananas. The new eco-friendly banana range of undies incorporates 27 percent banana fiber, 64 percent cotton and 9 percent lycra, AussieBum's Lloyd Jones said on Friday..."Naturally you can't really add anymore banana fiber than that because it might be a bit squishy," said Jones, adding that wearers did not have to worry about real monkeys, as the underwear does not smell like a banana.
