Sunday mornings, as a kid, I would have to wash both family cars. I would always listen to Casey Kasem on my “boom-box” counting down the forty most popular songs in America. As I write this the former host of AT 40 lies gravely ill and his second wife has been accused of throwing raw meat at her step-daughter Kerri. Let me run that by you one more time……Jean Kasem was launching raw meat at Casey’s daughter, Kerri.
Jean Kasem doesn’t deny this but who would think of pelting a family member with ground chuck? I’d understand a leg of lamb or a smoked herring but raw meat? Have you checked the price of raw meat in stores these days? Perhaps one of Dad’s old 45’s from ELO would make more sense. Casey Kasem is bedridden with lung and bladder infections and allegedly has a form of dementia—in a way that may be a blessing because he won’t remember his nutball second wife hurling hamburger at his daughter.
So what does Jean Casem have to say about these allegations? She told NBC News: “In the name of King David, I threw a piece of raw meat into the street in exchange for my husband to the wild rabid dogs” I’m not kidding. I’m not well versed in the words of King David and his alleged endorsement of flogging someone with flank steak but in my ten minutes of trying to google a connection the closest I came was in the book of Samuel where King David would roast raw meat instead of eating boiled meat. The only thing that bit of information does for me is clearly the meat in question couldn’t be corned beef.
Now…..on with the countdown.
