Usually there's a captivating or important story here in Tri-Cities everyday. But in some communities when the news pipeline goes dry they reach for anything.Never missing a chance to mock our fellow media, we present a hilarious list of stories that news outlets felt was necessary to share. Some fall under the category of "gee, we never would have guessed THAT" -- others make us say, "You have GOT to be kidding!" Here's a taste:

  • The Coke can that stayed perched on the bumper of a U-Haul for a 300-mile moving trip is something we need to know about?
  • Maybe you had suspicions that PB&J sandwiches are racist.
  • We could have gone all day without hearing about a man running naked... into a cactus.
