It’s April Fools Day! And no fooling, I’ll be giving you the titles of new albums, DVDs and Blu-rays being release today in Spankin’ New Tuesday - make sure you listen up to hear them. And at 7:40 I’ll be giving away another five-pack of tickets to the Hawaii Ocean Expo 2014 at the Neal Blaisdell Exhibition Hall happening on April 5-6.
And you may not realize this, but we’re in the middle of a war. The fast food breakfast war, that is, and it’s getting ugly. Taco Bell just rolled out their breakfast menu, featuring the waffle taco, amongst other items. Apparently Taco Bell is not getting a warm welcome. McDonald’s is firing back with giving away free 12-ounce cups of coffee for the next two weeks, which also takes a shot at their other competitor-Starbucks. Not only is McDonald’s doing the free coffee thing but they are also considering expanding their breakfast hours after 10:30am. That’s right, no more sprinting to McDonald’s at 10:29 to get your egg mcmuffin on. That would be awesome. Read the whole story [here].
I know we’ve got some fans of Chinese medicine here in Hawaii so I thought you’d like this little piece of news. A couple days ago, this guy in Maine watched a porcupine get hit by a car. He was excited because there’s supposed to be a valuable mineral deposit used in Chinese medicine formed in the stomachs of porcupines. Something about the wild mushrooms that they eat. So anyway, they guy picks up the dead porcupine and cuts open its stomach. But instead of finding this precious mineral, he finds a precious baby porcupine and it’s still alive. He didn’t know it but he just performed a c-section on this porcupine. I bet at this point he wished he had some of those wild mushrooms. But he took the baby porcupine home and he’s taking care of it. Why … because the daddy porcupine is nowhere to be found … typical. Catch the whole story [here].
