The Whisky School Returns

Today we welcome back our friends Graeme and Brad from The Whisky School in Colorado Springs! Listen to today’s tasting at the 45-minute mark on this podcast.

Sign up for their classes at whiskyschoolus.com


Are you a Leaper? If you aren’t, you might want to go hang out with one today – as a number of companies are offering fun freebies for Leap Day, which is tomorrow.
Here’s a rundown:

Olive Garden is making up for lost Leap Day birthdays. On Saturday, the restaurant chain will give “Leaplings” four free desserts. One is to celebrate their birthday this year, the rest are for birthdays that never came over the last three years. Leap Day is that rare 29th day of February which only happens every four years. Other pasta fans also get a treat. Take-home meals will be marked down to two-dollars-and-29-cents.

Popeyes is offering you a free chicken sandwich tomorrow…if you do this today: order at least $15 worth of food from Popeyes via Postmates You’ll get the code for a free sandwich after making the purchase.

At 7-Eleven? You can grab a $2.29 pizza. And if you use 7-Eleven’s 7NOW app for the first time tomorrow, the promo code 29OFF50 will get you $29 off any delivery order over $50.


Twitter users were debating the type of people they want to stay away from on Thursday, using the viral hashtag “#StayAwayFromPeopleWho.” Here are 10 of the more amusing responses:

“think posting on Twitter equates to activism”
“don’t believe in democracy”
“Only ask for favors and only use you for favors”
“will lie to you just to get whatever they want.”
“have a k-pop profile pic”
“Who take the last slice of pizza”
“find enjoyment in trying to make someone’s life miserable.”
“act like everything is PERFECT in a crisis”
“anyone who has a pet spider or snake”
“never buy a round at the bar”


I can’t tell if the things on this list sound intriguing . . . or would make me throw up. Maybe it’s both?

There’s a discussion on Tom Rose Bleeps dot com right now where people are sharing the weird FOOD COMBOS that shouldn’t work . . . but taste really good. Allegedly. And here are some of the ones getting the most votes . . .

  1. Cheap red wine and Coke. It doesn’t work with good wine, apparently.
  2. 7 Up and milk.
  3. Dark chocolate with parmesan cheese on top.
  4. Bacon wrapped hot dog in a bun lined with peanut butter, with chili on top.
  5. Baked Lay’s and the white candy stick from a packet of Fun Dip.
  6. Bread dipped in Coke.
  7. Berries with sour cream and brown sugar.
  8. A peanut butter sandwich dipped in tomato soup. Chunky peanut butter recommended.
  9. Salt and vinegar potato chips and brownies.
  10. Fried chicken with ketchup and gravy.

Baby Yoda Is A Sell Out

Baby Yoda seems to be the toy people just can’t get enough of…or their hands on. The new animatronic doll sold out on Amazon and at other retailers within 24 hours of pre-ordering. It can move its head, hands, giggle, babble and make dozens of other noises. Baby Yoda became the breakout star of Disney’s “The Mandolorian” in November. The second season is due out in October, around the same time the 60-dollar toy will be released.

February 24th is National Tortilla Chip Day! Hooray for National Tortilla Chip Day! Rebecca Webb Carranza invented tortilla chips in the 1950s. Carranza and her husband owned the El Zarape Tortilla Factory in Los Angeles and were among the first to automate the production of tortillas.

According to a new study, DRINKING BEER can almost DOUBLE a man’s chances of living until at least age 90. And it increases women’s chances by about one-third.

A company in Japan is taking preorders for MAYO SLICES. You can buy a package of four slices of mayo that look just like slices of cheese . . . only, you know, they’re mayo.

Today, I was not tased by @corey_feldman

A post shared by Jason and Benny (@jasonandbenny) on

A Science Channel daredevil and “Flat Earth” proponent has died while trying to launch a homemade rocket. Mike Hughes, better known as “Mad Mike,” was part of an upcoming Science Channel series called “Homemade Astronauts.” Authorities say he died Saturday in a fatal rocket crash near Barstow, California. In a statement, the Science Channel says it was Hughes’ dream to do this launch – he was trying to launch himself five-thousand feet in the air. Hughes was 64.

A 32-year-old woman named Lizzette Vela-Loechle is the manager of a bar called Chiquititas Lounge in Norcross, Georgia. And on Valentine’s Day, she held a special contest at the bar . . . a LIVE SEX CONTEST. She put a bed on the dance floor and promised $500 to the couple that demonstrated the best sex act. Some did it with their clothes on . . . others took their clothes off and REALLY demonstrated the sex acts.

Not really sure why someone who could afford to buy a Maserati, can’t afford the very best drugs society has to offer but cops in Iowa City, Iowa pulled over a 2014 Maserati and found that the person driving the car had a license status of “barred.” They also found hundreds of Whip-It canisters all over the backseat of the car. Ziyuan Zhong had admitted to officers that she inhaled at least 50-75 of these nitrous oxide canisters that day, which would explain the slurred speech and lack of stability while standing. She was arrested on multiple charges, including driving under the influence and possession of nitrous oxide

Burger King is hoping to change the image of its signature Whopper and they’re using a revolting new ad campaign featuring a moldy burger to do it. The fast food chain’s ad is to highlight them removing artificial preservatives, colors, and flavors from the Whopper. It shows a burger covered in mold to show it “can be a beautiful thing.”

There are all kinds of crazy things on the Internet and one of the latest shocking finds is a video of a woman bathing in Hot Cheetos. Twitter user @sp00kynugget posted the clip with the caption, “Omg so needed after this stressful day” that shows her legs in a bathtub that’s filled with water and Hot Cheetos. LOTS of Hot Cheetos, so many you can’t even see the water.

Meat Juice Tasers

Today in 1998, sportscaster Harry Caray died in Rancho Mirage, California, at the age of 83.

It’s also Thumb Appreciation Day! Sure this is another “nonsense” holiday, but thumbs are important! Just imagine…no holding your morning coffee one-handed, no more high fives…and no picking up just about anything! And forget using scissors or counting to ten with your hands. On top of that – no thumb wars…and egad…no Facebook ‘likes!’ But seriously, much like our terribly under-appreciated big toes, thumbs are an important aspect of our hands and our lives. Don’t think so? Spend today not using them!


Your dinners at Red Lobster just got a LOT less filling.

Apparently, Red Lobster very quietly changed their policy on their famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Until now, you’ve been able to get an UNLIMITED amount of them. It’s a big part of why a lot of people go to Red Lobster.

Well . . . the policy has changed. There’s a new limit of TWO biscuits for every entrée. Ouch.


Being naked and covered in meat juice with electricity pulsing through your genitalia is no way to go through life.

There’s a 28-year-old guy named Stefan Short in DeLand, Florida. And on Friday night, someone spotted him shoplifting ribeye steaks from a grocery store . . . by shoving them down his pants.

The manager started chasing him and grabbed him, but Stefan wriggled out of his clothes and ran out of the store NAKED.

Unfortunately for him, the cops were waiting outside. And when he wouldn’t stop, they TASED him.

And either accidentally or maybe a little on purpose, one of the Taser prongs went straight into his GENITALS.

He went to the hospital, and there’s no word on how his junk is. He’s been charged with theft and resisting arrest.


A new article in the “New York Times” just attempted to answer the question: What’s the worst smell in the world? And they narrowed it down to two possibilities.


A California town is up in arms after it was realized that a couple of porn actors made their way into the Santa Monica public library and performed on camera while unsuspecting members of the public were all around. The video, which was posted three weeks ago, shows 19-year-old entertainer Ellie Eilish exposing herself while walking around Ocean Park, outside of the John Muir Elementary School and Santa Monica Alternative School House campus, and inside the Ocean Park branch library. Eilish then performs sex acts inside the library with a man, whose face is not shown. The video has since been deleted from PornHub, which pays performers by the click. The city of Santa Monica says they are looking into the incident.


Ozzy Osbourne has cancelled his entire North American tour so he can seek medical treatment in Europe.

The heavy metal icon had already canceled the tour once over various health issues, and recently revealed that he is battling Parkinson’s disease. Ozzy had hinted recently that this cancellation was a possibility, saying at the Grammy’s last month he’d only tour if he was “well enough.” Osbourne and his team decided to just scrap the entire tour rather than be forced to make last-minute cancellations.

“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time,” he said in a statement. The dates had been scheduled to start in late May. As of now, Osbourne is still slated to tour Europe in the fall with Judas Priest. Ozzy’s new solo album Ordinary Man comes out on Friday.

Single in The Springs

Well, it’s Valentine’s Day. And if you don’t have dinner reservations or a gift for your other half yet, it’s not looking good. So to save you, here are five things you can buy TODAY, and not look like you totally blew it.

We also talk to Meagan Thomas from SingleInTheSprings.com! Single in the Springs is a podcast by Meagan Thomas and Madeline Hoeppner about relationships, dating, and single life in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Both women have been on their fair share of bad dates, not to mention their own mess-ups. While dating can be both fun and a nightmare, we’re not in it alone. You’ll hear stories ranging from funny tales of men with strange butt tattoos to more serious discussion of what to do when you have a gut feeling things aren’t OK. Whether you’re with your person, looking for Mr.Right, or just need a reason to laugh, they’ve got you.

It’s Girl Scout cookie time again and the most excited scout around may be Ronnie Backenstoe, who first started selling cookies back in 1932. She joined the Girl Scouts when she was 10 and now at 98, she’s still thrilled to be a part of it.

It’s Valentine’s Day and perhaps you got a card. But we’re betting that it isn’t similar to anything on today’s list of The 10 Top Rejected Valentine’s Day Cards.

Buffalo Milker 13:42

If you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone this year, could the type of CAREER you’re in have something to do with it?

I can’t believe it’s been two long years since this true hero of Valentine’s Day emerged . . . so it’s GREAT to hear about her again.

Back on February 21st, 2018, a 32-year-old woman named Shannen Martin was busted for shoplifting at a grocery store in Corsicana, Texas.

And she intentionally POOPED in the back of the cop car . . . so she’d have a place to hide her crack, her crack pipe, and a Valentine’s Day card.

If you are really good with your hands and have always wanted to know what it feels like to milk a buffalo, there is a job for you.

A buffalo dairy farm in Florida has begun to search for the perfect milker. The new “Urban Cowboy/girl for Buffalo Milking” position was posted by the farm yesterday and it comes with some perks:

Part-time job (4 hours in the morning, 4-5 days a week)
Someone who is committed, patient and thorough, willing to learn and do some independent thinking.
$10/hr during training and $13-15 as you become better, faster, independent.- some perks:
You get products that are not sold at the market, breakfast and or lunch on the days you work
Not to mention that you get to be up close and personal with a buffalo. Apply today!

A crew of Georgia thieves pretended to be rap stars, including members of the Wu-Tang Clan, as they drove around in a Rolls-Royce and scammed hotels out of more than $100,000. The men would roll up to the hotels in a Rolls-Royce Phantom, use a stolen credit card and rack up huge bills at the hotels and then take off. One well-known hotel got duped for over $45,000 while another got taken for $37,000. Walker Washington and Aaron Barnes-Burpo are the two men who have been charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. They were the mastermind behind the scam that ended when another hotel worker called the record label to confirm their arrival. The men also hired two homeless men to act as bodyguards during their stays. They weren’t charged with any crime.

A new Tom Rose survey found exactly how long it takes the average woman to reach her climax.

And it is . . . 13 minutes and 42 seconds.

The researchers figured it out by having 645 women from 20 different countries use a stopwatch to time things out. The women were all straight, they were all in committed relationships, and they were an average of 30 years old.

The study also found that more than two-thirds of the women needed some kind of touching or stimulation during sex to climax . . . and the position that was the most effective was the woman on top.

Crocs have been having a moment lately and now KFC has partnered with the brand on a truly unique pair of shoes. The fast food chain has announced they’ve been working with the shoe company to create footwear inspired by buckets of chicken and the chicken itself.

There are two versions of KFC crocs and they’re both like nothing you’ve ever seen before. First up is the classic clog, which looks like a regular croc, but has a classic KFC bucket design on the bottom and a fried chicken print on top. But here’s the crazy part – they come with two removable CHICKEN-SCENTED Jibbitz that look like chicken drumsticks. Yep, your shoes can smell like KFC.

The second pair is the Bucket Clog, which is similar to the classic clog, but has a 4.5-inch platform sole. These one-of-a-kind kicks recently appeared in photos during New York Fashion Week. And while you can’t buy the platforms for yourself, you can pick up a pair of the classic clogs on Crocs.com this spring for $59.99.

Thirst Trap

Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday. After a childhood in Indiana, some time in politics, and several decades as a country lawyer, he was elected president in 1860 without even being listed on the ballot in southern states.

Do you love Ikea so much you’ve found yourself wishing you could actually spend the night in the store? That dream could become a reality because the furniture chain has announced the Ikea Swede Dreams Sleepover event, where lucky fans will get to stay overnight in an Ikea showroom in Brooklyn, New York and Costa Mesa, California.

A Wisconsin man has lived his life as the biggest “Indiana Jones” fan and has spent most of it collecting as much memorabilia on the movie franchise as humanly possible. He finally got the point where he needed more room to keep it all. So he built himself a custom home.

A sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media for the intent of causing others to publicly profess their attraction. This is done not to actually respond or satisfy any of this attraction, but to feed the posters ego or need for attention, at the expense of the time, reputation and sexual frustration of those who view the image or reply.

Ready to set up your game this Valentine’s Day and make the most of your sweet treats? Time to play matchmaker between your candy and your adult beverage of choice. If you’re not sure where to start, food and beverage experts are here to help. Here are some alcohol and Valentine’s Day candy pairings that bring out the best of the flavors!

Dark Chocolate & Port Wine – The fruity sweetness of port wine balances out the bitter richness of dark chocolate and Schor says “the mouthfeel of this pairing is superb.”

SweeTarts & Sauvignon Blanc – This wine is naturally tart and mixes well with the sugary sweet and tartness of the candy.

Swedish Fish & Rosé – The wine is floral and “fruit forward,” but not overly sweet, so it makes a great combo with the sugary sweetness of the Swedish Fish.

Fireball & Candy Hearts – Conversation hearts are pretty chalky and plain, which pairs perfectly with the overpowering cinnamon whisky.

Pop Rocks & Champagne – Bring on the fizzy goodness with the combination of Pop Rocks and bubbly for an intense sugar high. Just don’t put the candy in the Champagne because the experts warn that combination could be explosive.

I’ve seen people do PLENTY of weird stuff on planes. But this makes “taking off your shoes and putting your bare feet on the seat in front of you” look normal.

There’s a 44-year-old guy named Matthew Flaherty, and he was on a flight last year from London to Iceland. And he was drinking STRAIGHT GIN out of the bottle and got extremely drunk. He started hitting on a female passenger, and when she ignored him, he started cursing her out and screaming he was going to kill her family. Then he shouted more death threats at the flight crew.

Then . . . he took his cell phone apart and started EATING THE PIECES. He also left the battery on his seat and it started SMOKING. A flight attendant dunked it in water to get it to stop.

The pilots decided to divert the flight to an airport in Scotland, where Matthew was escorted off the plane and arrested. He was in court this week and pleaded guilty to several charges, including disorderly conduct and making violent threats. He’ll be sentenced next month.

Jaw Breaker

Peppermint Patty Day! Henry C. Kessler and his York Cone Company, which was based in Pennsylvania, originally produced ice cream cones, and they’re responsible for the delicious invention the York Peppermint Pattie in 1940.

“Nails on a chalkboard” is the classic sound everyone hates. But when’s the last time you even SAW a chalkboard? Yester we asked people here at iHeartRadio to name more common sounds that make them cringe.

ADAM SANDLER missed out on his first Oscar nomination for “Uncut Gems”, and maybe that’s because it isn’t even his best movie. There’s a new list of his 10 best, and “Uncut Gems” is just third. Here it is:

  1. “Wedding Singer”, 1998
  2. “Happy Gilmore”, 1996
  3. “Uncut Gems”, 2019
  4. “Billy Madison”, 1995
  5. “50 First Dates”, 2004
  6. “Punch-Drunk Love”, 2002
  7. “Big Daddy”, 1999
  8. “The Waterboy”, 1998
  9. “The Meyerowitz Stories”, 2017
  10. “Airheads”, 1994

She works hard for the money. That is certainly true of one Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet while working a stripper pole and ended up plunging 20 feet to the floor while working at the XTC Cabaret Club in Dallas. She suffered a broken jaw, but the true pro she is got up and kept twerking.

There’s an 82-year-old guy named Ian Trainer in Liverpool, England. He doesn’t hear so well, so when he listens to his classical music, he BLASTS it.

Yesterday

February 10th is Umbrella Day! Umbrellas are a remarkably effective accessory for protecting yourself from wind, rain and sun. Whatever the weather, Umbrella Day is a great excuse to sport a fetching brolly when you’re out and about! National Flannel Day! With winter still going strong, this is the day dedicated to a special type of warm, sturdy clothing: flannel.

Dating is rarely easy, and when you’ve been doing it a long time it’s hard to constantly come up with fun and exciting things to do. So, if you’re looking for ideas, a new survey is here to help.

A man who was making his way back to his Minneapolis hotel around 3 a.m. Saturday tried to cross the icy Mississippi River near the Stone Arch Bridge and fell partly through the ice.

Police in Illinois say that a woman was running an online boutique out of her basement where she was selling stolen merchandise for a few years.

A first-grade teacher at a school in Florida is now under arrest after police say that she tried actually purchasing the drugs while at school.

They say here isn’t anything these days you can’t bottle up and sell. In fact, stars like Gwyneth Paltrow are now selling a $75 candle called “This Smells Like My Vagina” via her site, Goop. This week, Erykah Badu announced the sale of incense called “Badu’s P—y,” that smells like her vagina. And now a well-known sexologist says that she is going to be selling the real thing.

Your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life, but how can it be when it basically takes a small mortgage to make it happen? Unless you wanna wind up broke and eating overpriced chicken breasts at your reception, we have the answer: Denny’s is debuting a pop-up chapel for couples to get married for free on Valentine’s Day.

Tom Rose Bleeps

Things could get a little weird on the first Friday of February – well, if you’re in the office, at least. But if you celebrate this day, you’re probably not. Why? Working Naked Day is a ‘holiday’ of sorts for the over 30-million Americans that work from home each day.

Unable to deal with the loss of his beloved wife, a Vietnamese man dug up her remains, sealed them in a plaster sculpture and has been sleeping in the same bed with her for the last 16 years.

A well-known grocery store in the UK made headlines around the world last year with the release of their love sausage that was sold only for Valentine’s Day. The famous breakfast meat actually sold out within minutes last year once it was released. It was such a huge hit that they are bringing it back again this year.

5 Things You Think Your Girlfriend Is Lying To You About (And She Actually Is)

“I only ever have sex dreams about you.”
“I’ve never fooled around with any of my guy friends.”
“I barely ever masturbate now that we’re together.”
“You’re the best and biggest I’ve ever been with.”
“Of course I’ve never faked it.”

So, what are the worst Valentine’s Day gifts people have received? Well, according to a new Tom Rose survey they include:

A Break-Up
“Hug-E-Gram”
Wendy’s Drive Thru Meal
Wild Squirrel (and rabies shots)
Dog Treats (when the recipient doesn’t have a dog)
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Vagina Candle
“Shareable” Clothing
Tweezers
Funeral Arrangements
A Toilet Seat
