In Monday’s Three For All on Middays with MFB, Christian Fauria discussed his eventful pool party, Lou Merloni talked about his son Mason‘s interesting experience with wildlife, and Tim Benz shared a report about the mysterious animal that has been stalking the Bronx for the past few months.

– Fauria hosted an eighth-grade birthday party at his house over the weekend that was filled with a fair share of drama.
“So, parents drop their kids off, ‘Hey, little Johnny can swim fine.’ … So little Johnny jumps into the pool — little Johnny needs to be pulled out by the lifeguard,” Fauria said. “So not only does little Johnny, but little Billy and little Sammy — I just wouldn’t send my kids to any party, a pool party especially, if they could not swim.”
Fauria added: “The other issue is, a lot of kids now a days have these allergies. So we have two kids that come to the party, and both of them have nut allergies. … There’s a lot of responsibly hosting a party.”
“Do you want every kid to have a 3-by-5 index card around their neck?” Benz asked.
“A dog tag. That’s what I want them to have,” Fauria responded.
– Merloni headed to Cape Cod for the weekend, where his son Mason got into an eventful, if not morbid, experience with a woodpecker.
“We went down the Cape to my in-laws’ house and my father in-law says, ‘You know, I saw this woodpecker fly into the window and he’s dead and he out in the backyard.’ And I said, ‘Don’t tell Mason, he loves birds.’ About an hour later, Mason is like, ‘Hey Dad, look at this.’ You turn the corner with his grandfather and he’s holding on to a dead woodpecker in his bare hands.”
Merloni added: “So I can’t even get the words out of my mouth, ‘You better drop that before your mother …’ and all of the sudden here comes the mother.”
After washing up, Mason returned with rubber gloves on his hands to continue his examination of the dead bird.
– A mysterious animal has been roaming around the Bronx over the last few months, leading some to think that a huge rat was stalking through the New York borough. However, it was revealed that the creature was actually a fisher cat, a member of the weasel family.
‘Those things are nasty. … I’ve got them in my neighborhood. Those things can take down a horse,” Merloni said.
Said Fauria: “I’ve got a bunch of squirrels digging in my trash. I wonder if I should get one of these and let it loose in the backyard.”
