8:10 am
way. >> contrary to popular belief, the dates on food are not telling you the food is bad or it will make you sick. they're really just the manufacturer's best guess for when the product is at its freshest. >> reporter: 90% of food will hit the trash when it goes path the date, costing a family of four upwards of $1500. now congress is introducing a food labeling act to help consumers figure out the system that some argue is subjective and baseless. >> the reality is that the dates are not an exact science. every state has a different law. there's no uniformity or consistency across the country. this just adds to the confusion around these dates. >> reporter: the bill, if passed, would establish a uniform national date likeabeli system that indicates to consumers when food is unsafe to eat.

8:12 am
very much. >> i like the idea of smart packaging, if it could tell you when it was off. how many times have you wanted to fight back against speeding tickets? a man in texas did just that. he was ticketed, in his mind unfairly find 220 bucks. he decided to pay it in pennies. that's 22,000 pennies. he dumped them on the counter at the municipal court center. but the court got the last laugh because he overpaid by 7.81 dollars. >>

it doesn't make her day miserable. >> remember rolling the pennies? >> a little passive aggressive. at least he was aggressive aggressive. >> who online shops a lot? >> guilty. >> natalie keeps the whole online system up and running. there's always a risk. you never really know if something is going to fit. ask one customer who ordered jeans. he wanted a pair that would be 32 inches inseam. when his package arrived, the waist fit great about the legs were almost like flippers and went way past his feet. the company hasn't responded to a request for comment. on social media other customers posted their own pics of really, really long jeans.

8:15 am
>> why not arbor day? >> "usa today" says there's no good reason to get married over fourth of july weekend, labor day, thanksgiving, christmas, clearly. memorial day was rated borderline rude. >> isn't one of the reasons people do this is because you get a better deal? >> it allows people to actually go somewhere. >> we got married on the 23rd of december because the family was already in town. the family's going to be there anyway. >> sometimes you do get a better deal. >> it's hard to give up a holiday day weekend. >> maybe if you don't want anyone to come, go ahead and schedule it on the fourth of july. >> that's true. how about this. melissa mccarthy has a wish for critics of her "ghostbusters" movie and the actor who says hollywood is sexist against
8:16 am
>> that trailer was rated the most disliked in youtube history, which i can't figure out. some speculating all because of sexism against the female leads. melissa mccarthy says, i have a visual of them spewing hate into the internet. i hope they find a friend. dan aykroyd just saw a screaming and said on facebook, it's got more laughs and more scares than the first two films. plus bill murray is in it. i feel the need to turn it over to you. >> i think you're absolutely right, a lot of sexism. >> it's a great trailer. >> i think it's a funny trailer. >> tell them about the twinkie. >> for months people agonized whether kit harrings

9:08 am
many reasons, obviously. the little boy is okay, no critical injuries. this gorilla, 400-pound male, 17-year-old old. his name is harambe. the child told his mom he wanted to go swimming, according to the witnesses. at some point the child slips either under or over, and there have been conflicting reports about that as well, right now zoo officials think he went over something and fell 10 to 12 feet into the moat. harambe called the splash. he did not leave and then took the child. ten minutes, people were helpless for ten -- we've been on this show now eight minutes. so two or three more minutes longer than what we've been on with you right now, that's how long that child was in there with the gorilla. >> we have video of the
9:09 am
>> the enclosure where they believe the child slipped through the vegetation. there's even a petition, some 200,000 people have called for the mom to be charged. investigative authorities have indicated that will not be the case. there are also questions about the cincinnati zoo when your major clientele are children, to make sure there's nothing that a 3-year-old can slip through. zoos around the world, i worked at the ft. worth zoo, they are held to a strong standard. they have people who come in and investigate. they do a lot of things to ensure these enclosures don't have this problem. the family released a statement, they thank god for the child's safety. i don't know, what do you guys thing? harambe was shot, the gorilla was shot, and some people have questioned, couldn't they have tranquid
9:10 am
>> zoo officials have said they could not have tranquilized because that would still take time and the animal could have been agitated and been even more aggressive. >> we have the zoo director defending the decision to shoot harambe. here is what he said. >> we're talking about an animal with one hand that i've seen take a coconut and crunch it. you can't take a risk with a silverback gorilla. the barrier is safe. that said, any of us in this room could climb over barriers if we choose. >> they made the call. they had to. >> the correct call. it's easy for everybody to attack this mom. but nothing had happened like this before. mea culpa, my kids have gotten away from me. you turn away. it happens. you try to be an attentive parent. sometimes things happen. for people to turn on this woman

we don't read the comment sections, it's just not healthy for many reasons. half the time people write things they don't mean. but there was a viciousness i saw in some of the headlines directed at this monthly. and we have yet to hear what happened. you guys know, you know, i always say the fastest thing in the world is a 3-year-old boy or a gazelle. you've got boys as well. >> they have a way of being able to sneak around and hide and play hide and seek. they think they're playing and things happen. >> as parents, we know it doesn't take much, you turn around to one kid for 15 seconds, you turn around and the other one is gone. we're happy the kid is okay. by the same token, dragging this mom through the mud is not productive. >> there you go. so we've seen this happen on our plaza where people are
