It’s bonus time!

Well it’s a bonus show for me as poor old BOB SIMPSON is nursing a cold to end all colds.

Anyway on today’s show we reported on the Australian Night Club who were offering free drinks for girls. Hey that’s sexist isn’t it?

But it seems that not all girls were eligible as it seems that Girls wearing an A-cup bra we’re entitled to one free drink, wearers of B-cup bras could claim 2 free drinks whilst wearers of C-cup bras hit the jackpot being offered unlimited free drinks.

Not surprisingly the promotion caused a bit of controversy resulting in the venue – THE WOOLSHED ON HINDLEY – being fined the equivalent of more than £2000

Following the uproar, the venue issued an apology, which read in part: “We would like to address the concerns that have been raised regarding a recent social media post shared by our nightclub. We sincerely apologise for the fact that the post made some of our patrons feel uncomfortable and body-shamed as this was never our intention.”

South Australia’s Consumer and Business Services also found that Woolshed on Hindley had insufficient CCTV cameras on site.

Since the investigation, the country-style bar has updated its security system to avoid another fine.

In the second hour we asked you if you knew just what constitutes WITCH BOTTLES.

No, I didn’t know what they are either, strange that as they are supposedly quite common in the UK, having often been discovered buried in the corners of properties and even sealed into the walls of homes.

Apparently they are all known as spell bottles and have often been made for protection. involving a ritual where you’ve got incense, smoke and the like. They have often been used for health reasons, or luck.

However it seems that of late a whole series of witch bottles some covered in barnacles after having been in the ocean for long periods of time have been washed ashore in Gulf of Mexico resulting in researchers refusing tom open them. 

The creepy items get their name as they come from unknown senders and have odd items like hair, herbs, plants, nails, and bodily fluids stuffed inside which many believe hold spells.

Normally the creators of these bottles destroy them by throwing them into a fire – but it seems in this case its owners tossed them into the sea and it is this that has spooked researchers to the point that they refuse to open them, especially as indications suggest that they originated in Haiti.

So now you know!

Hopefully Bob will soon be feeling well again and I hope to have your company again on my regular show on Monday at 1.
