On today’s River Mornings with Melissa & Jack (8-29)
New (and Ridiculous) Words Added To Dictionary –
‘Twerking’, a sexually provocative way of dancing made famous by Miley Cyrus this week at the MTV Video Music Awards, is one on a long list of new words that have just been added to Oxford Dictionaries Online. Emoji, vom and jorts also made the list. For a complete list of the ridiculous new ‘words’, go here.
American Music Fest –
Is August 30th-September 1st in VA Beach and features Third Eye Blind, Fuel, Barenaked Ladies, Carbon Leaf and Daughtry. Melissa and Jack are hooking you up with passes all week.
Cheatin’ Beers -
According to a new survey, Guinness is the most popular beer with men who are having affairs. The rest of the top five beers for cheaters are Corona, Peroni, San Miguel, and Budweiser. Richmond’s favorite brew of choice PBR did not make the list proving that hipsters, while they may be dirty, bearded, flannel-clad animals – are quite trustworthy.
Hollywood Hot Mess –
Charlie Sheen tells TMZ, he flew up to Sitka, AK on his private jet last week in search of the mythic Kushtaka, which loosely translates to "Land otter man." Stories about the elusive Kushtaka originated among natives in Southeastern Alaska and according to Charlie, it's "a shape-shifting trickster who is half man, half otter. It lures one away from the campsite with the mimicked sounds of a crying baby, then kills you, takes on YOUR form, and returns to the scene for more suckers or prey."
Umm, is someone back on the crack, Charlie?
