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.

    This is crazy! Rapping figherfighters,a gorilla race, and what's up with the chihuahua? That firefighter in that one episode did have a nice helmet. Those people are crazy racing in a gorilla suit. So is that rap a joke? I have no clue. I wonder why Carl Azuz makes it show a chihuahua? That is definitely "Off The Beaten Path".

    I enjoy the "Off The Beaten Path" reports. Its a nice change from seeing all the things going wrong in the world. From floods to riots its nice to see something cool going on. Some of the stuff going on in them are pretty crazy. Its still fun to watch.

    I do not lide rap that much but when I saw the fire fighters I was laughing so much. The gorilla race is something that I would do so it was a good story. The chihuahua was a good story it show that some things can help others.

    Off the beaten path is sort of wierd. My class watches it and it's funny to us with all the funny stuff.
