Morning Mix Show Notes 9/7
Dead or Canadian, the newest oddity for State Fair fare and we are the coolest people on Earth.
Your Dead or Canadian subjects for today: Actress Jill Hennessy, Muppeteer Jim Henson and inventor Alfred Fuller. (Scroll down for the correct answers.)
Every year, we try and outdo ourselves with the odd food at the State Fair (fried beer anyone?), but the Texas State Fair must employ some mad scientists to figure out what their new food is going to be. This year it's deep fried bubble gum. It's not how it sounds, but it still sounds just as crazy. It's a marshmallow injected with bubble gum flavoring and deep fried. Then it's covered in frosting and rolled in Chiclets. I would be willing to try it. Would you? What's the weirdest thing you ever ate?
Good news! Anti-American sentiment is gone and the rest of the world is back to wishing they were us! A new poll from social networking site Badoo just released the results and it shows that America is the coolest country in the world. We have the coolest leader (Barack Obama), the coolest rappers (Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg), and the coolest man in technology with Apple's Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs is so awesome he made geeks cool. Belgium was the least cool. Poland was second least, Turkey third least, Canada fourth least and Germany was fifth least. How do you say "Nah-nah-nah-nah-boo-boo" in five different languages?
