Aflac Looking For Talent And Free Beer Gets Hurt – Recap of Todays FBHW Show
We talked about how Aflac is now running ads asking people to apply to be the voice of the Aflac duck. They've gotten over 1,000 submissions so far, including Dhani Jones, linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals! He's apparently trying to make a little extra cash due to the NFL lockout and because a ridiculous amount of retired players go bankrupt. While talking about this, Free Beer's move from Tennessee to Pennsylvania came up and how much of a disaster it was. He moved in on the hottest day of the year and the movers had clogged both of his toilets and let it ferment for about 10 days.
Free Beer had a rough night at basketball last night. He somehow jammed two fingers at the same play and also got elbowed so hard that his wife had to help him take his shirt off when he got home. We talked about how ridiculously tough hockey players were early on the show this morning. Zane mentioned how one dude last night got hit so hard that his ear fell off, he had it sewed back on in the locker room and then returned to the game! A guy who was about to lose his house because he owed a bunch of money on it is now facing jail time because of the way he paid off his debt. He posted about his situation online and asked for donations. When he reached the amount he owed, he promised to light his car on fire, which he did, but he unfortunately did it on public land. We checked out the latest photos of Lindsay Lohan that were taken by paparazzi outside of her house recently. She looks pretty rough.
We read an article that broke down the specifics of people that cheat on their taxes. It turns out that the most likely offender is single, young and male. We took calls in the next two segments from people on the harmonizer that wanted to talk about how they were cheating or have cheated on their taxes. For the second day in a row, a caller from Cape Cod left a mark when he called in and bragged about not paying taxes for the last 16 years because he was only concerned with looking out for himself. A listener emailed in and said that her husband was golfing when he and his friends were taunted by a 16 year old kid. She wanted to know whether or not we thought it was alright that she told her husband that she should have hit the kid, despite his age. We took a bunch of calls on the subject to see what listeners thought.
One of our favorite things to do is to dig up old videos on the internet and mock them. Today was no exception as we played back a video from the mid 90's that warned kids of predators on the internet. You can see it in the Video Reel. In todays' FBHW Report, we talked about the one person in the country that placed a bet for VCU to win the NCAA tournament, and also talked about LeBron getting booed during player introductions in Cleveland last night. We talked to royalty on the show this morning. Royalty came in the form of an 81 year old man named Dalton Stevens, who claims to be the button king. He has about 1 million buttons and he sews and glues them on everything he owns. You can hear that on the Intervies page.
Hot Wings is just one week away from the birth of his second child. We had some discussion this morning about possible baby names after we realized, after nearly two years, that he gave his first child the initial GM! We went over a list of the top 10 professions that were circling the drain and probably won't be around much longer. Check out the full list in the Cool Links section before you unknowingly pick one of these as a career! We ended the show by reviewing some of the great screw ups from today's show, playing the talking baby video, and telling what we learned today. Be sure to listen tomorrow morning when we play Dumber Than Zane Trivia worth $4,000 from our friends at Cat Footwear. Talk to you then!
