Craig & Company: Lighter Side of the News - 1/16/18

January 16, 2018
Every morning, Craig & Company bring you the Lighter Side of the news! Here are some of today’s highlights! A Connecticut Army vet had lingering stomach pain for years following surgery. After four years, doctors went in and found a scalpel, sideways, in the lower abdominal area... he sued. Walmart has pulled from its website a t-shirt that seemed to encourage the lynching of news people. The shirt reads, "rope, tree, journalist - some assembly required." Chris Brown posted a photo on Instagram of his 3-year-old daughter snuggling with his pet monkey. But owning a monkey is illegal in California, so the animal has been seized. In a California restaurant this weekend, one person accused another of stealing their cell phone. That's when everyone in the restaurant began brawling - twenty people in all. The phone was in the restaurant's lost-n-found bin the entire time. A dictionary in Australia named the 2017 word of the year: milkshake duck - it is when you put somebody up on a pedestal and then you find out they're, say, racist and they lose all credibility. Survey on office etiquette: Is it okay to play music without headphones? 94% said no. Is it okay to eat smelly food at your desk, like tuna? Most said no. 66% people said you should hold in your gas and "let it go" elsewhere... The Lighter Side of the News is presented by Farmington Bank.
