Bonehead Of The Day:
Sarah Palin not only has a thing for speeding, she also apparently has an odd appreciation of Sammy Hagar. In case you missed it, the former Alaskan governor and city mayor was given a speeding ticket in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.
When pulled over for driving 63-mile-per-hour in a 45-miles-per-hour zone, he joked she "wasn't speeding, [she] was qualifying," according to TMZ. The almost vice president of the United States also told police it wasn't "entirely" her fault because she was listening to Sammy Hagar’s “I Can’t Drive 55” on the radio.
The police must not be too in to Palin or maybe Hagar, because she was given a $154 ticket.
Stop Butt Dialing The Police
East Baton Rouge, Louisiana has a major problem on its hands...butts. WBRZ is reporting 911 dispatchers are receiving somewhere between 30 to 35 butt dials an hour, up dramatically from prior years.
"The amount that is happening is sort of unheard of," EMS public information officer Mike Chustz explained. "It's becoming a huge problem for our employees that work here." Since the operator has to stay on the line until the caller hangs up, sometimes a half hour is wasted on a butt dial.
"A big majority of them are accidental and we're not needed," Chustz said. "But we don't know that during the call, we have to verify that. And sometimes it can take three, four, 10 times to get that person back on the line." Officials are saying all the butt dials are getting in the way of responding to real emergencies. Hey East Baton Rouge, let's keep our phones out of our pockets.
Bonehead Of The Day #2
New York police officer was looking at the computer inside his cop car when he ran a red light and hit another vehicle. An unmarked police car, to be exact. Officials say Officer Robert Harrington, the one who did the "not stopping at a red light," was responding to a suspicious person complaint and didn't have his siren or emergency lights on.
Weird Al lands His First #1 Album
As expected Weird Al Yankovic landed his first-ever number one album this week. His latest, “Mandatory Fun,” sold 104,000 copies to reach the top spot on the “Billboard” Album chart, the first time a comedy album has been number since Allan Sherman’s “My Son, the Nut” in 1963. It is also the largest sales week for a comedy album since 1994’s "The Beavis & Butt-Head Experience" sold 118,000 copies. “Mandatory Fun” is also the third Weird Al album to reach the top ten. His 2006 release "Straight Outta Lynwood" went to ten and 2011's "Alpocalypse" peaked at number nine.
Weird Al was particularly amazed and grateful by the response to the album, tweeting, “I’m so pleased everybody is enjoying the album, and I’m enormously grateful for everyone’s support. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU,” adding, “If you’d told me 30 years ago this would happen, I never would’ve believed it. If you’d told me 2 WEEKS ago, I never would’ve believed it.”
Elsewhere on the chart, Jason Mraz’s “Yes!” debuted at number two, followed by Rise Against’s “The Black Market" at three, Bop Kids’ “Kidz Bop 26” at four and the “Frozen” soundtrack at number five; its 30th straight week in the Top Five.
Albums rounding out the Top Ten include: Sam Smith’s “In The Lonely Hour,” Ed Sheeran’s “x,” the “Now 50” compilation, Trey Songz’s “Trigga,” and Blake Shelton’s “Based on a True Story.”
