Oddities In The News is a radio current events program that describes unique and strange news stories that might not fit in with regular news programs. One such program airs the news that the Reverend Buckley Norris of Boston was not a legitimate pastor and that none of his marriages were legal. Unfortunately, this was an error as a week later, it was revealed that the Reverend Norris had been confused with an actual fake minster named Boris Knuckley. Mr. Howell is a big fan of the program.
The program also pops up as a segment at the end of a news program to announce that Leo the Lion was rescued by a Navy Destroyer and revealed to have eaten several cans of corned beef.
