A Sharkcano Eruption, Violent Hamsters, & Tracking the Texas Wolfman

Kathleen opens the show drinking a limited-edition Busch Light “For the Farmers,” which she LOVES in the summertime.

“GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Ranch, which she doesn’t like as much as regular Ranch dressing. She moves on to taste limited edition Old Bay Seasoned Goldfish, which is her absolute favorite new snack. She moves on to try Canada’s own Maynard’s Wine Gums, which she likes even though they’re too chewy for her new crown.

UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the Q followers waiting for JFK in Dallas, the St. Louis McCloskey’s appeal to get their law licenses reinstated, and the US confiscation of the Russian superyacht in Fiji.

“HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read about the discovery of the largest-ever predator dinosaur on the Isle of Wight, and the underwater “lost city of Zakhiku” resurfaces 3,400 years later on the Tigris River.

CHRISLEY DOESN’T KNOW BEST: Kathleen is amused when reading that Todd and Julie Chrisley, stars of the reality TV show “Chrisley Knows Best,” were found guilty of federal charges of tax evasion and conspiring to swindle community banks out of $30 million in fraudulent loans.

VIOLENT HAMSTERS: Kathleen reads the results of a study gone awry, with scientists shocked after gene-editing experiment unexpectedly turn hamsters into hyper-aggressive bullies. The technology being tested makes it possible to turn on or off genes in cells, which could make revolutionary changes in cancer treatment, etc.

WALMART BUYS THE DENVER BRONCOS: Kathleen is appalled to read an announcement that the Denver Broncos and the Walton-Penner family, led by Walmart heir Rob Walton, have entered into a purchase and sale agreement for the takeover of the team for $4.65 billion, a record for an American sports franchise.

MYSTERIOUS TEXAS “WOLF MAN” SPOTTED: Kathleen is excited to read an article advising that a “wolf-man type creature” was spotted outside the gates of the Amarillo Zoo. The city has turned to the public for assistance in determining who or what the creature is. Kathleen loves ALL things bigfoot or Chupacabra related, and speculates her own thoughts on what the creature could be.

FAMOUS CHIMP FOUND IN BASEMENT: Kathleen laughs as she reads an article that a famous Hollywood chimp was recently found by PETA in a Missouri basement.

SAVING HAWAII’S LANAI: Kathleen has visited the Hawaiian island of Lanai, and is bothered to read about the outcome of Larry Ellison’s purchase of the entire island. The eccentric co-founder of Oracle Corp bought the island, which included its businesses and all the land, which made him everyone’s boss, landlord, or both overnight.

SHARKCANO ERUPTION CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Kathleen LOVES anything to do with sharks, and is thrilled to read about a “sharkcano” eruption that NASA recently captured on film off the coast of Australia. The underwater Kavachi volcano was dubbed “Sharkano” when it was determined that after the crater was an unlikely home to two species of shark able to exist in an extreme environment.

83-YR-OLD SAILS PACIFIC SOLO: Kathleen is thrilled to read an article about 83-yr-old Japanese man who recently set a record by becoming the world’s oldest solo yachtsman to sail non-stop across the Pacific Ocean.

THE CHILDREN STALL ON CARVANA: Kathleen has always been fascinated with the business concept of Carvana, not believing that people will buy a vehicle sight-unseen, and isn’t surprised to read that the “Amazon of Dealers” is in deep financial trouble.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching “Under the Banner of Heaven” and Teal Swan’s documentary “The Deep End” on Hulu.
