FRIDAY FUN – January 7, 2022

And now it's time for some FRIDAY FUN!

A festive Christmas street, a dog versus cat optical illusion, a vehicle modification for snow, and more.

In Cambridge, Ohio, the owner of a hair salon, at the urging of his son, started “Hoss” the hairball from customers’ clippings. It grew big enough to be featured by Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Instead of taking it straight to a museum, Ripley’s took it to Comic Con in Orlando and asked attendees to donate their own hair clippings to help the hairball break the Guinness World Record. The hairball was certified at 225.13 pounds, breaking the record of 167 pounds set by Missouri barber Henry Coffer in 2014.

In Denver, Colorado, a family donated an old recliner to a local thrift store. Later that day, store employees had to call Denver Animal Protection. They discovered a cat hiding inside the recliner. The cat’s microchip was out of date, but the family had realized the cat was missing and went back to the thrift store to retrieve it. This is not the first time there has been a news report of a cat found in donated furniture. And long-time NewsDash readers might remember that this happened to me. A friend gave me a couch, and my son and I were surprised and a little frightened when the next day a cat slinked out from the inside.
