FRIDAY FUN – February 11, 2022

And now it's time for some FRIDAY FUN!

Amish skiing, unreachable heights, baby food gag, and more.

In Eagle, Idaho, the Idaho Potato Commission announced it is celebrating Valentine’s Day and the state’s signature crop with a limited-edition perfume. The fragrance, Frites by Idaho, is made from distilled Idaho potatoes and essential oils and is designed to smell like a fresh plate of French fries. According to UPI, unfortunately, the $1.89 bottles of the fragrance sold out quickly on the IPC website, but social media users can still enter an Instagram contest to win free bottles.  https://idahopotato.com/shop/product/frites-by-idaho/

In Raleigh, North Carolina, a recent Pick 3 lottery drawing resulted in 12,406 tickets earning top prizes. The North Carolina Education Lottery said the combination 3-3-3 was drawn. Players who purchased 50-cent tickets will receive $250, and those who purchased $1 will receive $500. Lottery officials said Wednesday afternoon’s drawing resulted in a total $4.9 million being owed.

In Seattle, Washington, multiple drivers of 2014 through 2017 model Mazdas have reported that their radios are stuck on the local NPR station. “KUOW is aware of an apparent issue between our signal and some Mazda infotainment systems, causing radios to reboot when they connect to KUOW’s 94.9 FM signal,” the station said in a statement, according to UPI. Mazda said in a statement to the Seattle Times that affected customers should contact local dealers “who can submit a goodwill request to the Mazda Warranty department on their behalf, order the parts, and schedule a free repair when the parts arrive.”

In Stafford, England, staff at the zoo are trying a new method to encourage an increase in the number of endangered Barbary macaques in residence there. The zoo hired a Marvin Gaye impersonator to visit the monkeys’ habitat and sing love songs. “We thought it could be a creative way to encourage our females to show a little affection to males that might not have been so lucky in love,” Park Director Matt Lovatt said on the zoo’s website. UPI reports that Lovatt said the zoo will not know whether the tactic worked until birthing season arrives in late spring or early summer.
