Big Jim and Anna Show Cliff Notes: Wednesday 12/11/13

Miss any of The Big Jim and Anna Show today?  Here's what you missed:


Jennifer nominated her mother Patricia.  Patricia has worked endlessly to provide for her family and never worried about taking care of herself even though she deals with expensive medical needs.  She asked Holiday Helpers if we could provide her a new bed as her old bed is in disarray and she has been sleeping on the couch.  We were able to secure her a new queen size bed and a box spring from our friends at Sleepy’s. 


INTERNET ROUND UP is brought to you by:


Canadian airline WestJet surprised recent passengers before takeoff when they had a virtual Santa ask what they wanted for Christmas.  What they didn’t know was at the final destination, there were 150 people scrambling to get everything on that list.  When they waited for their luggage, their presents came out on the conveyer belt instead.  Tablets, televisions, toys for the kids, free airline tickets- all of it was there.  They videoed everyone’s reaction and said that once their video reached 200,000 views they would donate flights to the Ronald McDonald Charities.  It has over 6 million views in two days!






An entertainment blog called "Beyond the Marquee" sent out a five-year-old girl named Lindalee to interview celebrities on the "white carpet" at the premiere of Disney's "Frozen".  Just so cute! Well, Anna thinks so- Big Jim thinks it’s in “bad taste” to have the kids on the carpet “taking away people’s jobs”- Boo…



There’s a new Christmas album in town… put out by Duck Dynasty called “Duck the Halls”.  It came out on October 29th and went straight to number 1 on the Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.  Apparently the nation can’t get enough of the beards…



Time Magazine has named Pope Francis as its Person of the Year- They released this statement and a video:



7:40a Couple’s Court: Donation Overload

Brad reached out to us because his wife Danielle is going overboard with donations for the holidays.  She’s been writing big checks to local charities and Brad says they can’t afford it.  Danielle has a simple reason as to why they can give it all away- karma.  She says that they will receive threefold in the New Year if they give generously now.  Ultimately the audience agreed that she is going overboard and giving so that you hope to receive is ridiculous. 


Barack Obama Selfie?

Apparently Barack Obama took a selfie with other dignateries at the Nelson Mandela memorial service and everyone has something to say about it.  Check out the picture and let us know what you think on our Facebook page @BigJimandAnna:



Kaitlyn Tarpey, Miss Connecticut 2013

Kaitlyn joined us in the studio to talk about being Miss Connecticut.  We talked about her rowdy family, being friends with other pageant queens, placing top ten in Miss America and a lot more! We also tested her pageantry question and answer ability… Make sure to check out the podcast!

Here's Kaitlyn with Big Jim who got dressed up and cleaned up his beard today in an attempt not to look homeless and impress her:
