NIAGARA FALLS TIGHTROPE WALK: Live Friday
Daredevil Nik Wallenda makes an unprecedented tightrope walk over Niagara Falls on Friday. ABC is capturing the action with the special Megastunts: Highwire Over Niagara Falls -- Live! Crossing Niagara on a tightrope has been banned since 1890. 13 tightrope artists have traversed the gorge in its history.
If you still haven't bought something for Father's Day, you've got about 48 hours left. But we found a list on Complex.com of lame presents to avoid. It has obvious stuff no one would ever buy their dad, like scented candles and man-purses.
Plus these seven things you should probably avoid. If you DID buy something on this list, don't panic. You just might want to think about a back-up gift.
#7.) Any T-Shirt with the Word "Dad" on It. He might wear it, even though it's lame. But he'd almost definitely prefer a T-shirt with NOTHING on it.
#6.) A "Hot Sauce of the Month Club" Membership. Complex.com says ANY monthly membership like that is lame, because it SEEMS thoughtful, but isn't.
#5.) Dad Jeans. If you're giving him jeans, they say to upgrade his style a bit. But the thing is, he probably likes his dad jeans because they're COMFORTABLE, not because they LOOK good. So jeans in general are a risky Father's Day present.
#4.) Underwear. If you gave him a three-pack of boxer shorts on any other day, I guarantee he'd appreciate it. But on Father's Day, it just says you put in zero effort.
#3.) Hair Products. This one's probably the worst thing on the list. Unless it's a gag gift or something, let HIM worry about his hair. He knows how much he's got left.
#2.) A Novelty Tie. He might wear it once or twice, but if you really want to do the Father's Day tie thing, get him a NICE tie. And get him something else to go with it.
#1.) A Coffee Mug. If it says something like "World's Greatest Dad" on it, maybe. It just can't be the ONLY gift you give him.
Barbara Hall says she was merely asking her lover if he had brought nonstick cooking spray into the bedroom with him so they could lube up before things got hot and heavy.
Unfortunately, when she asked if he had brought PAM, he thought she was confronting him about an affair he'd had earlier in the week, when he had made love to a woman named Pam on a boat.
In the ensuing argument, Hall reportedly seized the nonstick spray and the double entendre did double duty, going from sexual lubricant to domestic abuse weapon, as the stung woman allegedly used it to batter her slick boyfriend.
Hall is currently in jail, and PAM is available at your local grocer's for a wide variety of uses.
