Keep the streak alive

Not much has changed since 1776. Fellow humans, take pride. We own stupid. Americans have it down cold. As long as the uptight upright breathe dumb crap will prevail. Wendy Northcutt counts on it. This podcast would cease to exist (we heard that!). So keep it up America. History and tradition demand you stay stupid. Also, 2Kens in the workforce is not funny.

alaska stupid street names If Sarah Palin were a street …

What would she name herself? We don’t know – or care – who discovered the land that would become our 49th state. But we know who names the streets. Narcissism is right at home in Alaska. Literally.

 Morons come and morons go…

More fireworks safety tips the drunk and stupid will ignore again next July 4th. Only the names change. Plus freshly half-baked Fun With English cupcakes. Enjoy the show. Ticket prices start at committing one stupid act a day.

Music this week from Empty Houses and The High Divers, two Indie bands with debut albums out there this summer!

300 shows without breaking a sweat If anyone had suggested in Dec. 2008 that we’d get this far … ? Good thing work’s its own reward. That’s the thing about podcasting. Day job’s required. As milestones go 300 is nice. In baseball 300 puts hitters and pitchers in the Hall of Fame. But we’re in the business of Schadenfreude. Soo satisfying   Yes, but they […]

Granny’s Got Game In  the end, most find religion. Carmen Bustamante Barangó prefers the topless blender of emojis watching over her. This week we travel to Spain for a death bed curse straight out of The Godfather. Without casting family judgments we recommend not opening your Nana’s cedar chest after she’s gone. Ed: wouldn’t it be a hoot if this […]

Keeper of collective intelligence or … Google is many things but caretaker of higher intellect ain’t one of ‘em. The only real problem we find with this survey is many of these idiots legally can vote. Luckily for the rest of us, most are likely too dumb to find the ballot box. Montanans have the right idea, but […]

At yeast the holes are free London’s newest tourist attraction is a late night talk host’s monologue wet dream. And the coppers? A Krispy Kreme donut machine that vends greasy, gooey gobs of sugar dough is a ready made stakeout.  Pick a cliché, grab a hot cuppa and get in line. Oh, bring cash. They’re £2 a pop, […]

 Astral Travel with Peter Pan We began last week broken hearted.  Believing only fools attempt comedy when one of the truly best friends in this or any lifetime would never again laugh with us.   Jim Armstrong was gone and suddenly continuing this podcast seemed beyond unfeeling.  But then I remembered what Jim’s music partner, and dearest friend of 25 years, Andrea Poulis told us […]

How was your stay sir? No the dog did not eat our mp3. This show went down the rabbit hole when a laptop got left behind, a hotel tried to get it back to us but a delivery service had one too many shipping options. No names. May have to stay there again. Passover comes later, Seder Extra innings this week. […]

Say WHAAAT? Rod Serling would be so proud of NBC. The Nightly News weather graphics dept. brilliantly managed to both mistake WI for MI – and vice versa – and make roughly 16 million people early or late for everything! We believe their epic gaff also affected the cheese head state’s presidential primary. A stretch? Nope. Hard to refute […]

Oh thank heaven Be glad you didn’t try to suck down the 64 oz. Ice Age Slurpee. A product that freezes your brain turns 50?! Explains consumer thinking and 80% of network TV doesn’t it? Let the masochistic gulping games begin! Speaking of torture What is it about people waiting tables that brings out the Conan in American diners? We used […]

100 Divas Every art form has its prima donnas. Divas. Actors, dancers, rock stars… just takes one to blow up a production. Imagine the fun when 100 bleating, over-eating opera singers slide down a chute onto a NYC stage.  Lambing season in all its glory.   Pit stop! Okay this is just plain ___ no words. Come with us to the land of the kiwi where the Zip car is […]

Urgent matter Toronto’s Jim Armstrong, the most prolific songwriter and brilliant music producer we’ve ever known, has not been seen since March 9th. Epilepsy plays a role. Jim is a dear friend. We took the first 3 minutes of the show to honor and help find him. The vitals: 5’9” tall, 160 pounds, Gray/red hair, which is […]
