A Milwaukee TV feature reporter hit West Bend some time ago and gave this family owned business a "Shout Out." Know anyone who's eaten the whole one pound hot dog with bun?

Back in May, a video of a hamster eating tiny burritos got huge on YouTube. And now the same people who made it have another one . . . where a hamster races speed-eating champion Kobayashi in a hot dog eating contest.
Obviously the hot dogs the hamster has to eat are much smaller though.

For a fifth consecutive year we will be collecting labels and boxtops for education. You know, you find them on Campbell's soup cans, granola bars, General Mills cereals, etc. Once again we're holding a contest to determine which school will be the recipient of this years collection. Last year Decorah Elementary in West Bend was the recipient.
If you would like your school or group to be the recipient of all the items we collect, tell us why. Be creative, original, innovative and sincere. The more you stand out, the better. Only one will be selected. Please get your requests in by Friday October 31st. You can drop them off at WBKV or mail them to Bob's attention at the WBKV studios. Good luck from AM1470, WBKV
The above is a HOLY ANGELS school (West Bend) nomination.

A guy on a bike tour through Buenos Aires, Argentina was almost hit by a guy riding a motorcycle the other day. Luckily they didn't collide, and the guy riding the bicycle kept going. But it wasn't over . . .
The guy on the motorbike followed him . . . whipped out a GUN . . . and started shouting. He wanted the guy's BACKPACK, and THAT'S why he'd almost caused the accident . . . he was a thief.
The guy on the cycle got off, left his bike there, and took off running . . . since he thought the thief was trying to steal his BIKE. And the whole thing was recorded on the GoPro helmet on his forehead.
We've seen these before, and I have a feeling we'll be seeing more . . . until thieves figure it out and steal the camera first.

Vampire stories (on TV and film) aren't exactly hard to come by nowadays, but next month's Dracula Untold
could be a worthwhile and refreshing take on the sub-genre. The film has the makings of a solid ancient world war epic, but with a supernatural horror twist and a very modern outlook towards how the man that was Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) became the creature of the night known as Dracula – and, as trailers for the film
emphasize, an interesting explanation for what drove him to embrace the darkness in the first place.

Sure...I'd give it a try...
WENDY WILLIAMS once bet that KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST'S marriage wouldn't last 72 days, and said she'd "eat crow" if they actually lasted. It has. In fact, they've made it over 100 days now.
So, on her show yesterday, Wendy made good on her bet . . . LITERALLY. She had a chef come in and cook her a gumbo . . . using ACTUAL crow meat. She said it's "tough" meat . . . but it actually looked pretty good.

CAT burglar. Residents of a California neighborhood say a cat has a habit of stealing items from neighbors. "Dusty" has apparently stolen more than 600 items from his San Mateo neighbors over the years.

David Letterman may be set to recuse his late night TV throne in 2015, but that doesn't mean he's pulling any punches until then. On Friday night's episode of The Late Show, the late night king took aim at the Eagles, one of his longtime favorites, after they flatly refused to allow bandleader Paul Shaffer to perform one of their songs. Well, when you mess with Letterman, he apparently has the power to dedicate a full five minutes of his show to making fun of your absurd policy.
Needling both the band and his own producers, Letterman and Shaffer joke about playing just enough of a song to avoid a lawsuit. After a director gives them the go ahead, they discuss which song is worth the amount of money that they might have to pay out in a suit, before Dave decides that he's "not that interested anymore." It's a pretty clever barb against the litigation happy band, and one that comes only a couple of days after they cornily decided allow the owner of Madison Square Garden to open their impending New York show.
