Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (9-28-2013)

Every man has done something in his lifetime to impress a woman. Some of us have done things that are just down right stupid, and some of us are still doing things that are D.R.S.  But there's a fine line between being stupid and dangerous. This story proves that there is absolutely no correlation between age and wisdom. At least not as far as this guy is concerned.
A man from southern Colombia had to have his penis amputated after he allegedly overdosed on the erectile disfunction medication Viagra, officials said. 

Just reading this is painful.

The 66-year-old man from Gigante, told a local newspaper that he intentionally overdosed on Viagra to impress his new girlfriend, local media reported on Wednesday. 

There is no fool like an old fool.

Doctors noted that the man's penis was inflamed, fractured and showed signs of gangrene, and opted to amputate to prevent the inflammation and gangrene from spreading to other parts of his body.

Life is a strange thing. No matter what or how you plan. Sometimes things have a way of falling apart when you least expect it. One of the most important aspects of life is how you respond to what happens in it. Whether you choose to make lemonade out of lemons or just focus on the fact that you have lemons makes all of the difference in the world. The following story is one in which a family decided to take their lemons and make lemonade for those who needed it most.

Carol (pictured in blue dress) and Willie Fowler were shocked when their daughter’s wedding was called off, but the food and lavish reception they paid for did not go to waste.

No, I don't know why their daughters wedding was called off. Maybe because of a secret child or a secret lover. But I can almost guarantee that it was a secret something.

The Fowler family reached out to Hosea Feed The Hungry, a local Atlanta organization serving families in need, to help figure out how to best use the food. They ended up turning a disappointing turn of events into a an evening that feed more than 200 homeless people on Sept. 15 at the Villa Cristina, an exclusive reception and wedding spot.

Carol said that she and her husband knew forty days in advance that their daughter, Tamara, would not be getting married, but they prayed about what to do next.

“And when (my husband) woke up the next morning, he said, we’re going to call Hosea Feed the Hungry and ask if we can donate it to the needy. I immediately looked up the number and called and spoke with Mrs. Elisabeth Omilami, and in doing so, we partnered. And it was such a wonderful feeling just to partner with them.”

It is not clear why the wedding was called off, but Tamera’s mother, Carol, said her daughter was taking the change of plans very well. For Omilami’s part, she initially thought Fowler wasn’t serious.

“At first, I thought it was a prank call because it was such an amazing offering,” she said. “And then she said she wanted to focus on women and families, that she wanted to focus on children at which 70 percent of the homeless in Atlanta are children. And so we had an opportunity to go out and look for places like the Nicholas House and Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, as well as Mary Hall Freedom House. We’d called them all. We said, the Fowler family is going to have a party for you. Then they said, what do you mean? Then we said, it’s just for you. There’s no cost. All you have to do is get there.”

The Fowlers will surely be blessed. But had it been me I would have come out of my own pocket to provide luxury transportation for the homeless. But that's just me...........LOL

My children are special and talented. Your children are special and talented. But can your children spin on the one and two's, cut and scratch on the Technique 1200's or mix "Good Times" on the wheels of steel? No? Do you wish that they could. 

Then this school is perfect for you.

From playpen to playlist! A group of toddlers in Brooklyn is trading in rattles for beat making software.

Just when you thought you’ve heard it all, Cool Pony,  a thrift-store in Brooklyn, NY has debuted the first class for tots to learn how to be a DJ.

The class isn’t intended to transform kids into the next Tiesto or Avicii. It will, however, school them on how to develop their fine-motor skills using beat-mixing equipment.

Baby DJ School is the brainchild of seasoned DJ, (never heard of her, seen her on my TV or heard her on my radio), composer Natalie Elizabeth Weis, who has shared the stage with LCD Soundsystem and Dirty Projectors. 


While she’s never worked directly with infants before, Weiss has a background teaching at the School of Rock in Manhattan.

 Over the eight-week course, which began on Sept. 18, Weiss will teach her class of six toddlers -- all under the age of 3 -- how to mix and match sample tracks in just 45 minutes.

Plus, Weiss' 45-minute class costs $200 per family.

Samantha Al-Fayez, the mother of one of Weiss’ new students, told the Wall Street Journal that her 1-year-old Julien "loves gangsta rap,"

Shouldn't somebody call child services on any parent who let's their child listen to "gangsta rap"?

Weiss' class doesn't play the "gangsta rap" for grown-ups. She "refuses to use any music with profanity or sexism in her DJing workSide Bar: Ladies and gentlemen, DJ Baby Harrison is in the mix!!!!

I know, I know. I usually do 3 stories in "Just When You Thought You Heard It All News" but I just couldnt ignore this one.

Two words, one name. O.J. Simpson! O.J. freak'in Simpson!!!!

O.J. Simpson found out how the cookie crumbles (rim shot), when he was allegedly caught stealing gooey goodies from a Nevada prison cafeteria.

The former gridiron great was recently caught with a stash of not one, but more than a dozen oatmeal cookies.

Life can be really unpredictable. One minute your running through the airport leaping over luggage, and the next your hoarding prison treats.

Simpson, who is serving a 33-year sentence for armed robbery at Lovelock Correctional Center in Pershing County, reportedly tried to smuggle the cookies into his cell after lunch. He might have gotten away with the cookie caper, if not for an inquisitive guard who noticed Simpson was hiding something under his prison clothes.

When corrections officer questioned Simpson, he allegedly confessed to the theft.

"O.J. just stood there with a goofy grin on his face as the guard kept digging inside his shirt and throwing the cookies on the floor." According to one source.

Simpson's fellow inmates were reportedly on hand to witness guards expose his sweet tooth.

"When the guard started pulling cookies out of O.J.'s shirt, the other inmates started laughing so hard they nearly fell over," the insider told the Enquirer.

Simpson, 66, was arrested in Las Vegas, in September 2007 and charged with numerous felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping in relation to the armed theft of sports memorabilia. Sentenced to 33 years' imprisonment, the Nevada Parole Board recently granted Simpson parole on some charges related to the robbery, but ordered him held for the next four years.
