HERE ARE THE TRUE TALES THAT I AM DOING ON THE RADIO THIS WEEK. October 19, 2014

(You will be able to see all my cartoon adventures by going to the STRIP.

True Tales for this Week....

****A 73-year-old New York woman has discovered her official voter registration card lists her birth year as 1850, aging her by a whopping 91 years.  Luz Pabellon has been voting for years, but never knew the city Board of Elections records misstated her age by nearly a century.  NOW, SHE KNOWS WHY YOUNG MEN NO LONGER CALL HER FOR A DATE.

****Avon has its annual march against Breast Cancer this week, but neglects to mention that most women get breast cancer because they take estrogen for hot flashes.  THE WORST OFFENDER IS VIVELLE DOT WHICH IS A PATCH THAT LIVES ON THE LADIES' TUMMIES FOREVER.

****This year's New York City Marathon is sponsored by Airbnb which New York City has charged it as being illegal.  ALL BED AND BREAKFAST TYPE RENTALS ARE ILLEGAL IN NYC AND GUESTS WILL BE SUBJECT TO EVICTION....PROBABLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.  DO NOT BELIEVE THAT JUST BECAUSE THE PLACE IS ADVERTISED ON THE INTERNET IT IS LEGAL.

****Just when the Ebola stories are coming out of your ears, here is a new amazing one.  The man was threatened with arrest for even saying the word "Ebola."  ALL THIS GUY DID WAS TO ASK A COP IF THE INCIDENT HE WAS SEEING WAS CONNECTED IN ANYWAY TO THE EBOLA SCARE.

****Flu shots are being given out, which is why everyone is walking around with a sore shoulder and unable to use one of their arms temporarily.  IF YOU GOT IT IN THE RIGHT ARM, IT IS TOUGH TO SHAKE A HAND WHEN YOU MEET SOMEONE.

****It is at  the New York State Courthouse in Lower Manhattan, where employees of tenant-screening companies compile information from publicly available case files for use by landlords.  THIS IS THOROUGHLY ILLEGEAL UNDER THE FEDERAL CREDIT REPORTING GUIDELINES BUT THE CITY LETS THE LANDLORDS DO IT BECAUSE THEY MAKE POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS.

****The disparity between the price of a pack of cigarettes in the cheapest state and the most expensive is enormous. Smokers buying a pack in Virginia or Missouri pay just $5.25 while those feeding their habit in New York must pony up $12.95. Here are the five priciest states : Vermont: $9.62,  Alaska $9.79, Massachusetts $9.95,  Illinois $11.50, New York $12.85. New York City is more than $17,00 a pack.  SMUGGLING IS THE NEWEST BIG BUSINESS INTOWN AND LUCKY FOR THE SMUGGLERS NO ONE IS EASIER TO PAY OFF THAN A CITY OFFICIAL.

****The head of the CDC, Dr. Thomas Frieden — who has screwed up and screwed us royally in this Ebola crisis — was Mayor Bloomberg’s self-righteous, dictatorial Commissioner of Health and Mental Hygiene.  HE WAS PROMOTED TO A NATIONAL HEALTH JOB SO WE COULD GET RID OF HIM.  HE WAS THE GUY WHO DREAMT UP THE "NO MORE SOFT DRINK" IDEA.

 ****Joke du Jour: You can hear all my jokes at the joke du jour link higher up on this web page

****Bus companies that operate New York City's hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tours have agreed to settle a group of class action lawsuits brought by tourists, court papers show. The anti-trust lawsuits against Coach USA, City Sights and related entities accuse the companies of forming a joint venture to illegally monopolize the sightseeing bus industry and conspiring to fix prices above the market rate. The companies have also been known to tout certain attractions and obtain kickbacks from vendors.

****TV THEME (can you guess what show this music came from?) ..AUDIO

****I did a music video....well, i drove the taxi in the video.  MUSIC

****THE SNEAKY CAMERA (the hidden camera)..a growing collection of new yorkers are unaware that they are being watched by a certain taxi driver. new ones are added from time to time. take a peep at SNEAKY

(please note: when playing a movie on your computer, you should diminish the size of the frame. if you have a problem, please contact us.

****AND THAT NEAT MOVIE HOUSE ALWAYS SHOWED A DOUBLE FEATURE AND HERE WE ARE WITH A SECOND FLICK. this is a trip around the city in the famous yellow mobile conveyance lounge. HONK HONK

****THE MOST WANTED TOUR IN THE BIG APPLE. TOUR

**hear what some happy tourists had to say about my tours, just go AUDIO

**to see some additional happy tourists perform in short video productions go to VIDEO

**here is an interview i did with a tourist and it was presented on radio 702 in south africa. from time to time, i do this and the tourist gets to be famous. the radio stations love this feature for their listeners. AUDIO

**to hear broadcast spots about some of the places where folks are taken to, listen to these commercials that were created for a "visit new york city promotion" at SPOTS

****please note that i encourage folks planning on coming to nyc to write to me for some advice.  beware the online trip advising sites that are written mainly by public relations people to promote their clients' services.  many of the restaurants that they tout have numerous health violations and you can always ask me about that.  i do not "rate" things but i sure can tell you if you choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
