Ripley Radio – How to Eat Chocolate Bunnies & Tattoos That Vibrate

Ripley Radio’s tribute to Easter this week features Ripley-style advice on how one should eat a chocolate bunny and author Anne Perciado Rich visits to explain how bunnies and colored eggs became a part of the most important holiday in the Christian religion.
Have you ever been in a noisy restaurant or a loud rock concert and have been unable to hear your cell phone or even feel it vibrating? Now, our friends at Nokia are creating the technology that will cause a special tattoo on your body to vibrate when a call or email comes in.

Additional Weird, Unusual and Bizarre Items Discussed This Week:

• Marc Hartzman reports on the amazing Torres Family, now appearing on the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

• We learn that two Girl Scouts in Missouri are suing the state over the right to sell cookies.

• Angela reports on what may be the most elaborate Twilight-themed wedding ever held.
