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.
In case you missed it:GARTH BROOKS announced on yesterday's "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.
A lot of people were surprised when DANICA PATRICK was announced as TRACE ADKINS' cohost at the "American Country Awards". Even she was a little shocked when the producers offered her the job.
She said, quote, "This is one of the first things where I said, 'You know, let me think about that.' I just was nervous about doing it."
Even though she's been on TV a million times, this is uncharted territory for her. She says, quote, "I don't think hosting dinner at my house really counts."
What helped seal the deal is that she won't be flying solo. She says, quote, "With a guy like Trace who's done it for a few years and is such a cool, relaxed guy and so well-known and respected in the industry, and he has a great personality.
"We're going to have fun. I'm looking forward to it."
The ACAs will air tonight at on Fox.

Taste of Country asked CRAIG MORGAN about the BEST Christmas present he's ever given. It was to his wife . . . and it was total kickass.
He said, quote, "My wife is a car nut. She knows cars. All her life she's wanted a Corvette. It was about four years ago . . . I gave her a brand new Corvette." Here's the video.
The news is not good for
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)

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)
Wow . . . just, WOW! Now THIS is how you make a point. Two friends, trying to teach their buddy a lesson about the danger of driving drunk, perform the most epic prank ever. Hopefully this five-time DUI dummy learned his lesson. What do ya’ll think?
NBC's "Sound of Music Live!" special . . . starring CARRIE UNDERWOOD . . . attracted 18.5 million viewers last Thursday night, which is a HUGE audience.
But judging by the shots the special has taken on social media, a lot of people thought it was a disaster.
In fact, Carrie saw so many jabs that she felt the need to warn the haters that JESUS WOULDN'T APPROVE. She Tweeted, quote, "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight . . . 1 Peter 2:1 - 25."
That verse says you should, quote, "rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind."
One of the "haters" was Kym Karath, who played Gretl in the original 1965 movie. She Tweeted, quote, "[I'm] mystified and disappointed so far. [I] must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch . . .
"Love Carrie Underwood, but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely, her voice is beautiful, but [her] acting is wrong." Carrie was playing JULIE ANDREWS' character, Maria.
Kym was watching the show with her former co-stars Charmian Carr, who was Liesl in the movie, and Angela Cartwright, who played Brigitta.
For the record, Kym also said a lot of POSITIVE things about the show, and later bemoaned the fact that the Internet was "twisting her words."
She said, quote, "[I] just read TMZ. [I] NEVER EVER used the words 'totally bombed.' Never. Never. Never would. Never could. Very, very disturbing."
Meanwhile, Kym was getting some criticism of her own. She Tweeted, quote, "Apparently some religious fanatics think that vile language and abuse co-exist with the teachings of Christ. Wow."
