Subway's Footlongs Aren't, Beyonce's To Do List, and Horses for Heroes
Posted 1/24/2013 3:00:00 PM

Here's something you've gotta see. A stunt pilot in Texas did a fly-by while a friend with a camera was standing on the runway filming him . . . and he got REALLY close to her. He flew straight at her doing about 200 miles per hour, and the plane got within a few FEET.

WARNING: She says the S-word. Wouldn’t you?

OK --

- this just in from Tony Colombo..

..this girl almost gets decapitated by a train!

This is HORRIFYING!!!!!


Today at 3:45 on the show we will feature Equine-Assisted Therapy, Inc a group that has but one purpose; to provide horsemanship experiences to persons with mental, physical, and psychological disabilities in order to enhance the quality and productivity of their lives.

One facet of Equine-Assisted Therapy (EAT) here in St Louis is a program that serves our returning war veterans – Horses for Heroes. Learn more by clicking HERE.

She has a lip-synching controversy to deal with and has to get ready for her Super Bowl performance. So let's take a look at the Celebrity To Do List of Beyoncé.

8:15 A.M.: Sing in the shower. Okay, move-lips-to-pre-recorded-track . . . in the shower.

10:00 A.M.: Remind Jay-Z that he's 43 and it might be time to stop calling himself, "Jay-Z."

10:40 A.M.: Press conference. Move my mouth while a pre-recorded track makes a heartfelt apology for lip-synching at the inauguration.

11:00 A.M.: Get a preview of the upcoming Destiny's Child reunion, when I walk into Starbucks and order a latte from Kelly and Michelle.

12:00 P.M.: Lunch. Order a hamburger. Like it. Put an onion ring on it.

3:45 P.M.: Spend more money on a rattle for Blue Ivy than you'll spend on your kid in a lifetime.

6:40 P.M.: Hold baby, for exactly 2 minutes before passing her off to another nanny.

9:25 P.M.: Prepare for Super Bowl halftime show by making sure my shirt can't be ripped off.

On today’s blog pics you can see Feinstein’s proposed weapons ban, along with a picture of a submarine sandwich.

Last week some random guy posted a photo of his Subway footlong on Facebook, with a measuring tape showing it was just 11 inches. And now, we've reached the inevitable next step.

On Tuesday, two guys in New Jersey SUED Subway. John Farley of Evesham, New Jersey and Charles Pendrack of Ocean City, New Jersey are suing for undisclosed damages. They're also demanding that Subway start making their footlongs 12 inches long, or stop calling them footlongs.

There's no word from Subway yet about the lawsuit. Subway has released a statement declaring that their footlong subs are only 11 inches long, because "footlong" isn't supposed to be a measurement of length.

Which sounds ridiculous, but here are six OTHER things with names that don't describe what they really are:

#1.) If you buy a TWO-BY-FOUR at the lumber store, it's not really two inches by four inches . . . it's one-and-a-half inches by three-and-a-half inches.

#2.) PEANUTS aren't really nuts . . . they're legumes.

#3.) A KOALA BEAR isn't a bear . . . it's a marsupial, like a kangaroo.

#4.) A STARFISH isn't a fish . . . it's something called an echinoderm.

#5.) A PALM TREE isn't actually a tree. It's a type of grass.

#6.) And if you have SWOLLEN GLANDS, your glands aren't swollen . . . your lymph nodes are.

Now you know, and knowing is half the footlong battle.
