(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)(NEWSER) – It's a story straight out of an episode ofSeinfeld, just with an ending both more—and then less—satisfying. Last fall, a man from Spirit Lake, Iowa, decided he wanted to snack on a Twix while working his warehouse job at Polaris Industries. So Robert McKevitt inserted a dollar in the vending machine, punched in the code for the candy, and watched it get stuck midair on the spiral hook. He inserted another dollar in his quest to free it; no luck. He banged and shook the machine; ditto. And so, according to state unemployment records, he took a more extreme action: He drove an 8,000-pound forklift over, raised the machine two feet, then allegedly let it fall on the concrete floor—six times, reports the AP.
I have to say the New Norwegian Getaway is one of the best ships I’ve been on, and I got a chance to talk with Jill the President of Clear Results and the ship’s Captain before we sailed out of Miami like a Norwegian!
Listen to the WIRK morning show for the chance to win a seven-day cruise for two on Norwegian Getaway, the newest and largest ship to sail the Caribbean year-round from Miami.
This is a cool piece done on Eric Church. Find out what he does when he gets off the stage. You might be surprised. He also addresses why he got fired from the Rascal Flatts tour a few years ago.
The '90s were good to Garth Brooks. And to Jay Leno.
So it was very fitting -- and very moving -- that Brooks serenaded Leno with his 1990 hit "The Dance" on Thursday's (Feb. 6) episode of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
Leno started as the host of the show in 1992 and said during his farewell show that his time there was the greatest 22 years of his life. He fought back tears as he talked about turning over the reins to Jimmy Fallon, who will take over the show starting Feb. 17.
"I am the luckiest guy in the world," Leno said. "This is tricky."
"The Dance," one of Brooks' signature songs, was written by Tony Arata. It first appeared on Brooks' self-titled debut album.
"To a lot of people, I guess 'The Dance' is a love-gone-bad song. Which that it is. To me, it's always been about life," Brooks explains in the song's touching music video. "If for some reason, God forbid, I should leave this world unexpectedly, I hope they play 'The Dance' for me. I could've missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance. And I wouldn't miss this for the world."
No matter how you interpret the song -- is it about love, life, death or dreams? -- for Leno it was the perfect way to say goodbye.
"And now, I'm glad I didn't know/The way it all would end, the way it all would go/Our lives are better left to chance/I could have missed the pain/But I'd have had to miss the dance."
After that three minutes of melancholy, Leno knew the audiences in the studio and at home needed a little bit of levity.
"Now that I brought the room down," he said, asking Brooks to lighten it up. Brooks complied, closing out Leno's very last show with "Friends in Low Places."
