I was born a poor bl- Wait, that's not right. Actually, I was born on Mackinaw Island. I used to walk to school when the lake froze over. No, wait. that was Boot's Bell's made up childhood. Ummn....
Oh, okay. I was raised by Wolves. No wait! Kitchen appliances! Yeah, That's right. I was found on the doorstep of a kindly Toaster and Blender named Milton and Mrs Butterworth. They raised me as their own, never telling me that I was adopted. But I suspected. I mean, all the other kids had a plug.
One day, while I was down at the Rogers Flea Market buying my new flip-flops, the house was beset by wholesalers! Mom, dad, Zippy the microwave and Mack the electric knife were sold off in a wholesale slaughter!
When I came back to the house, Juan, the badly damaged coffee maker, told me what happened.
I vowed vengeance. And I knew the only way to track down the people who had destroyed my family was to become a DJ. It's the same logic O.J. used to search for Ron and Nichole's killers on golf courses.
So far...no luck.
I'll keep ya posted...

A Cincinnati man is under arrest and is charged with armed robbery after he allegedly held up a local convenience store with a hot pepper.
Police say the man walked into the New Delhi Convenience Mart on Madison Street last Tuesday afternoon and threatened to poke the store clerk’s eyes with the hot pepper if he did not hand over the cash register.
Police apprehended Philip Myers, 52, of nearby Westwood, OH after they received a 911 call from the store clerk, and say they found the spicy weapon on his person. Police say that the pepper Myers used in the heist, the much-feared ghost pepper, is the second-hottest pepper in the world. If used, it would have caused serious eye irritation and perhaps even permanent damage.
“It’s a good thing that the clerk, an Indian national, recognized the pepper for what it was,” said Police Lt. Gerry Pearsall. “They make pepper spray from these types of peppers. They are no joke.”
Police say that an attempted robbery at vegetable-point is not unprecedented. In 2006, a 23-year-old Kentucky man was imprisoned following an failed heist at the Cincinnati Credit Union during which he used a banana concealed in his coat pocket. Police arrested the perpetrator just outside the bank, where he had slipped and fallen on his weapon.
