Any criminal who's too LAZY to STAND UP to commit a robbery doesn't deserve a DIME.
Last Friday, a man tried to rob a Wendy's in
The clerk saw him pulling up to the drive-thru window in a 2001
When the guy pulled up, he shouted that he wanted money, and even FIRED A SHOT into the window. But since no one was there and he wasn't willing to get out of his car, he didn't get any money . . . and ended up driving off.
No one was injured, and police are still looking for him.
The "American Country Awards" went down last night, and even though it was their fourth year, the show still hasn't found its legs. Or host.
TRACE ADKINS just isn't cutting it, even paired up with a hot cohost like DANICA PATRICK . . . although I did appreciate both of them wearing Vegas showgirl getups. Here's a TwitPic of BRAD PAISLEY getting up close to Danica and her outfit.
There were some great performances: RANDY HOUSER killed it with "How Country Feels", JAKE OWEN turned it out with ZZ TOP'S BILLY GIBBONS . . . and LEANN RIMES got a standing ovation for her tribute to PATSY CLINE, which was a medley of "Leavin' on Your Mind", "Walkin' After Midnight", "Crazy", and "Sweet Dreams".

A never-before released JOHNNY
It features two duets with his wife, JUNE CARTER
And this isn't a bunch of sessions slapped-together to make a buck . . . it's a completed album that his record company decided not to release. Fortunately, Johnny saved the tapes and his son John Carter Cash found them just last year.
An interesting side note is that it also featured a young MARTY STUART on guitar. The new producers decided to "fortify" the original tapes so they brought Marty back, plus some studio musicians and June's daughter CARLENE CARTER.
No other changes were made to the record, so it's like we're getting a brand new Johnny Cash album 10 years after his death.
In case you missed it:GARTH BROOKS announced on "Good Morning
He told ROBIN ROBERTS, quote, "You know what, since it's you and since we've had a history forever, let's announce it. We're going on a world tour in 2014. I can't believe I just did that but you are a doll." Check out the interview here.
Garth gave up more details a little later on "The Talk". He said it's going to be a three-year world tour . . . and that it'll make everything else he's ever done "look small." Here's the link to that.

During the NELSON MANDELA memorial in South Africa, PRESIDENT OBAMA posed for a selfie with British Prime Minister DAVID CAMERON and Denmark's Prime Minister HELLE THORNING-SCHMIDT.
There are actually rumors that MICHELLE OBAMA was JEALOUS of the attention her husband was giving Thorning-Schmidt, and even made him switch seats so that she was in between them. Here's a great picture that makes it
20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience. They were invited to a studio and had their hair and makeup completely redone. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL video . . .
PRESIDENT OBAMA’S decision to have American flags fly at half staff in honor of NELSON MANDELA has fired up some controversy.
Pickens County Sheriff,
In case ya’ll didn’t know . . . there is no specific law that requires such a thing. The president, governors and other leaders can make the decision on when to lower flags in someone's honor.
The last time a president ordered flags lowered for a foreign dignitary was when President Bush did it in 2005 for Pope John Paul II.
President Obama did not order flags to fly at half staff when former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died earlier this year. (WLOS)
FINALLY!!!! GARTH BROOKS just confirmed on GOOD MORNING AMERICA . . . that he's heading out on a world tour in 2014! Click on the pic for more info.

I know times are still tight and people need money around the holidays and blah blah blah . . . but $16 is an awfully cheap payout for sacrificing your dignity.
A new survey asked people whether they'd do different embarrassing things for $16. If that number sounds random, it was a British survey, and they used 10 British pounds . . . which translates to about $16.34.
Here are the results . . .
Eat dog food . . . 22% would do it.
Run naked down the street . . . 19%.
Be someone's personal slave for the day . . . 17%.
Kiss your boss for 10 seconds, regardless of gender . . . 15%.
Let an ex take control of your Facebook page for an hour . . . 11%.
Wax your entire body, including your head . . . 8%. (FemaleFirst)
