Off the Beaten Path

One question I get asked a lot is what my favorite stories are.  You'll find most of them in our "Off the Beaten Path" reports.

From the world's most expensive ice cream sundae (it costs a thousand bucks!) to runners in gorilla suits to anything with a Chihuahua in it, the offbeat stuff is always the most fun, if not the most important.  My friends joke that I'm a little off the beaten path...

So while I enjoy reporting on everything from political headlines to video game studies, I always wrap up an offbeat segment with a smile – usually because I can't help it.

And if you're wondering what my deal is with Chihuahuas, let's just say that a pet I used to have appears regularly in one of our graphics, and I'm convinced they're the best dogs on the planet.
