Cops Surprised By Deer Jumping Out Of Car’s Trunk
Kalamazoo, Michigan Police questioning a driver who had been sitting in his car at around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday (March 19th), in a hotel parking lot, were startled when a deer jumped out of the vehicle’s trunk. Officers said the man was sitting in his car at a Red Roof Inn when they approached him to investigate. The driver told them that he had struck a deer with his car and loaded the dead body into the trunk so he could take it home and cook it. While the officers were talking with the man, the deer jumped out of the trunk. Lieutenant Stacey Geik said, “The officer was certainly surprised. One held his ground better than the other as the video indicated.” (FOX)

Fallon Replacing Leno Talk Heats Up, Report ‘Tonight Show’ Moving to N.Y.
The recent talk that NBC is set to replace Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show with Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon is heating up, with the newest reports out yesterday (March 20th) saying the network also plans to move the show from L.A. to New York, where it began six decades ago before moving out to California in 1972, 10 years into Johnny Carson’s 30-year tenure. NBC confirmed Wednesday that it’s building a new studio for Fallon in New York, where he hosts Late Night. But it didn’t comment on the New York Times report that the studio may become home to a Fallon-hosted Tonight Show. Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter said yesterday that Fallon has contacted Leno in an effort to help smooth the potential succession. Leno’s Tonight Show contract expires in September 2014, but The Hollywood Reporter story says some at NBC are eyeing a Fallon takeover as early as next February, to take advantage of the promotional platform of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. In a Fallon cover story for the April issue of GQ, Late Night executive produce Lorne Michaels seemingly confirmed the transition, stating, “I’m not allowed to say it — yet. But I think there’s an inevitability to it. [Fallon's] the closest to Carson that I’ve seen of this generation.”
Death Wish Coffee Has Twice as Much Caffeine as Average Cup
Coffee addicts who really need that caffeine kick in the morning now have a powerful new option called Death Wish Coffee, which bills itself as the world’s strongest coffee with twice as much caffeine as in an average cup. A 12-ounce cup of Death Wish contains 520 milligrams of caffeine, compared to 260 milligrams in the same size cup of Starbucks coffee. The man behind Death Wish, Mike Brown, owns a coffee shop in upstate New York, and tells Yahoo! Shine he created it in response to customers asking for the strongest cup he had. He explains, “I did some research and I blended the strongest beans in the world from Indonesia, Ethiopia, and South America.” That much caffeine isn’t healthy for everyone, however, as recent reports about ill effects from high-caffeine energy drinks have shown. Brown acknowledges this, telling Shine, “The entire back label of the bag of coffee is a warning label. If you have medical issues like heart problems you shouldn’t drink this stuff.” A one-pound bag of Death Wish can be bought on its website or on Amazon.com for $19.99.
