The Morning After
Skippy - 6a-10a

Morning After with Skippy

 


Revenge Porn?



A 31 year old man in the UK, one Heroy Bygraves, will be spending 14 months in prison after getting back at his ex by sending nude photos of her to 150 people, including her family and her boss. He also slashed her tires and destroyed her personal property. He was convicted of "distributing private photographs," among other things. Good for that judge for making him face the consequences of his juvenile behavior.


And to be clear, it happens all over the world and women have been busted for similar offenses (often called "revenge porn"). So if you're thinking this is a good way to get back at someone, think again.


So, what's the most spiteful thing you've done to an ex? Do you feel bad about it now?

Sorry! Wrong Person!



Yesterday, I shared with you the story of a woman who lost her job at a school district for correcting a kid's spelling on Twitter. Today, the President-Elect is in the news for tweeting at the wrong Ivanka and the unintended recipient calling him out for his lack of attention to detail.


Before I move on, let me make this very clear, this is not a conversation/debate about politics. My radio show is not that serious and you can have those arguments in real life or elsewhere online.


What I want to know is, have you ever gotten in trouble for something you've posted online or messaged via modern day technology? I've gotten a few stern talking-tos and a few looks of disapproval but that's about it in regards to work. Personally, I have been blocked by people when I've done something to piss them off (accidentally and unintended most of the time to be honest).


Your turn. Weigh in here or at 559-228-1041. Good morning!

Are You a Grammar or Spelling Nazi?



Katie Nash, a web experience coordinator for a school district, was recently fired for correcting a kid's spelling on Twitter. The kid in question didn't throw a fit about the correction and the exchange wasn't rude or degrading but still, Katie lost her job for being a Spelling Nazi.


Are you a Grammar and/or Spelling Nazi? Do you post online or send text with absolutely zero cares if it's correct as long as you get your point across? Weigh in at 559-228-1041. I'll be honest, sometimes I make errors and feel horrified and just wait for the correction to come from some righteous individual looking to stroke their own ego. That said, I will also judge people if their spelling or grammar is atrocious. Especially if you're messaging me trying to look attractive. You've been warned.

I Propose the Return of Celebrity Death Match



You know those people that you hear talk and you just wish a heaping dose of humble would fall on their head? I think that every time I see anything involving Floyd Mayweather. Confidence, yes. That's healthy. Self importance so through the roof that you actually consider yourself "The Face of MMA" when you've never actually, you know, fought? I feel like that's a bit disrespectful of the people who get in there and actually do it. Both are "sports" sure but soccer is a sport... how are you on the pitch Floyd? I'm sure a lot of it is to drum up hype (and it's effective) but that doesn't make it any less stupid sounding.


On a much smaller level, that'd be something like someone who has been doing radio for 15 years in Fresno (someone I may know) publicly spouting off that she is the face of local television. Sure both are media related but two totally different things. And that is the only time in my life I'll ever use myself in an example with any sportsing figure, let alone Mayweather.


So can someone just hurry up and pop this guy in the mouth and shut him up, preferably midsentence. And if it happens to be McGregor in a boxing ring, I'm ok with watching that because Conor is pretty hot.


Click here for the story on Mayweather countering McGregor's money demands.


Click here for Mayweater talking about how he's the face of MMA and will grace fighters with a selfie.


So while we are on the topic of fighting it out... Let's pretend for a moment that Celebrity Death Match made its return. Who would you want to see in a matchup?

I Like Big Butts And I Cannot Lie...



There's a reason why songs are written about them... and now there's some strong science "behind" the pros of having a larger than average butt.





Thoughts? For me, I'm thinking it's about damn time so I can embrace my own junk in the trunk. Let me know what you think- 559-228-1041.

And as we talk about this topic... what are the things you find physically attractive in someone? Sure a personality is great but lets be superficial for a moment. For me lately, it's poor eyesight. Mostly because I just think glasses are super cute. And I'll be a stereotypical female for a second too. I want a guy bigger than me. One who can carry my (big) ass out of a burning building if necessary.

Keep Your ******* Hands Off My Food!



So in a story released yesterday, a woman and her partner got into a fight over who was eating all the fries... and it quickly escalated to the point where she STABBED HIM IN THE SHOULDER. Newsflash... Alcohol may have played a factor.


So this goes well with our story yesterday about etiquette and how if you and I shared a meal, it would take every bit of my self control not to sample what's on your plate if it looks good. That said, don't you DARE touch my food unless you ask and I say yes. I'm aware this is a double standard. I'm not perfect.


So what are your rules for food? Do you share? Do you believe in the 5 second rule? Is it ok to look in someone's fridge if you don't live there? Is it ok to take the last of something without asking? I want to hear from you... 559-228-1041.


In the meantime, click here for the fry eating stabber woman.


And here for "official" rules on food etiquette in the US because I care.
