Kathie Lee & Hoda: Tourist Snaps Finger Off 600-Year-Old Statue
A 55-year-old American tourist really did our country proud the other day when he snapped the finger off of a 600-year-old Italian statue of the Virgin Mary while either high-fiving or comparing his hand size to Mary’s (I’m sure the sources were all over on this one). It should be mentioned that the finger that was broken off had already been replaced once, so he only really snapped off a plaster replacement. However, people all over Florence are quite pissed at the Missouri man’s lapse in judgement.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: 15-Ton Blob Of Congealed Fat Removed From London Sewer
In other news, a 15-ton blob of congealed fat has been removed from a London sewer. It is the size of a double-decker bus and has been dubbed “The Fatburg.” Apparently, much of this fat comes from people dumping it down the drain, instead of sealing it in a container and throwing it away. Remember The Fatburg next time you decide to dump that hamburger fat down the drain on burger night.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: People Don’t Want To Live Too Long
The Pew Research Center ran a study recently, asking people if they would want to live to be 120. The results of the study showed that 69 percent of those surveyed would not want to live to be 120. Where Kathie Lee & Hoda were concerned, they wouldn’t want to live to be even 70 if they weren’t healthy. One thing they didn’t consider, though, was what if you lived to be a healthy 120 years old? Huh? Didn’t think of that (highly unlikely) scenario, did you?
