Scoot Show 4-1 10pm, Bob Mitchell

Apr 1, 2014|

: a costume company Morphsuits played everyone big time today… announcing they developed a suit using “light-bending” technology that would render its wearer invisible. Problem is--it’s an April Fools’ joke. If you had a suit that could make you invisible…where would you want to go…and what would you wanna do? THEN: When it comes to fast food--burgers, fries, fried chicken, tacos, malts, frosties, frapachinos, etc… which is your guilty pleasure? What’s the one fast food you can’t turn down? PLUS: a child in a REACH after-school program was told the book he was reading during his ‘free-reading’ period was unacceptable and had to be put away. The book….THE BIBLE! The boy’s family complained…and guess who came to their rescue…the ACLU! The ACLU of Tennessee is defending the rights of the student to read the Bible at school. Do you think some educators don’t really understand there’s a difference between “no school lead religion or prayer” and “not allowing religion in school?”
