Subliminal Testimony

[Gooey News] This just in: KSL 5 Eyewitness News' Randall Jeppesen must be bucking for celestial bonus points with his "Woman finds money she threw away in trash truck" story.

It's about a "Provo woman" (too important/compromised/ humiliated/whatever to be ID'd) who was late to the bank and had to take her company's deposit of $200K home with her where she accidentally threw it away. She realized her misstep only after garbage trucks carried off the week's trash.

Here's where it gets good: She caught up with the garbage truck and convinced the driver (tell me how anyone without a warrant can do this) to empty the truck's contents so she could dig through them.

She was quoted as saying: "I said to my friend, ‘We just need to say a prayer.'" (Apparently, no swearing allowed.) Blessed be, the magic happened. After searching for only a few minutes, she found the checks with just "a little bit of goo on them," KSL reports on its Website.

KSL summarizes with: "She calls it one of those faith-building moments."

Yes, Virginia, it was a faith-building moment for faithful viewers but a faith-destroying moment for anyone depending on KSL for real news.

PS: In other happy news, the woman was able to keep her job with her company (also unnamed). [Jerre Wroble]


  1. Other than the religious overtone that I am sure that some people may have been troubled with, I think that is a great story. In fact I wish that the news reported more of these type of stories, uplifting and fun.

  2. Nice tidbit Jerre. When I heard the story I did wonder why I had to look for 20 minutes to find my shoes. Then I realized that the checks were in Utah County. aaaaaahhhhhhh That explains the fastlane response to prayer.

  3. I still can't find my keys. God hates me.
