With Free Beer out this week for the birth of his twins, everyone's role is a bit different on the show for a couple of days.
Steve has been running the board all week, which is something that Free Beer usually handles. The other day, though, Zane decided that it was his moment to shine. He wanted to go back to his Joe and the Poorboy roots and run the board. So, we'll see how long this lasts.
Each Thursday on the show, we play Dumber Than Zane Trivia for a $500 cash prize. Due to some instances of cheating in the past, we now require that all of our contestants be blindfolded and use GoToMeeting so we can watch them play and ensure that they are not cheating.
Plus, it gives us a chance to see what the person taking on Zane in a battle of wits actually looks like!
On the show this morning, we talked to Kyle (formerly known as Wiener 2 when he was an intern) about his interning experience. We reminisced about the time that he and Wiener 1 had to compete in the Wiener Challenge, in which Producer Joe threw hot dogs and baked beans at them off of a parking garage.
To top it off, the dogs were dipped in a ketchup/mustard/relish slop sauce. Why did we do this? Who knows. But it sure made for a funny video!
There are a lot of things in life that maybe would be better off never having been discovered or known by the people involved. Add in to that the idea of finding it out on a televised program, and you have a recipe for a lifetime of awkwardness and disaster.
These poor guys just wanted to find out some information about shared DNA but in hindsight, maybe they should have looked into that in more of a private way.
We think an old adage says to avoid any really serious arguments about politics, religion, etc. in any marriage because of its unnecessary strain. In this case, "strain" is definitely an understatement.
The election in 2012 wasn't all that close at all with Barack Obama handily defeating Mitt Romney. According to this woman, though, her husband was at fault for Romney's loss.
This reminds me of the first time somebody won the $1 million on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire, only a lot less money. That guy used a lifeline to call his family and tell them he was about to win the money, capturing the hearts of every viewer. This final Jeopardy contestant went a bit of a different route.
This guy didn't know the answer, and instead of making an educated guess, he went the comedic route.
What happened to the good old days, when teenagers spent Memorial Day weekend trying to find some beer or awkwardly fondling each other? This year they spent it doing something MUCH more unsavory.
There's a huge trend that blew up on social media this weekend, called the "Charlie Charlie Challenge." People are performing an old Mexican superstitious ritual where you balance one pencil on top of another to form a cross. Then you say, "Charlie, Charlie, are you here?" And then, if the Mexican demon named Charlie really IS there, the pencils move.
On the show this morning, Zane was telling us about how his son, Jim, wants to get a tattoo of his son's name on his forearm.
Zane was trying to talk him out of it, saying that people would judge him down the road and that he may not get a job because of the tattoo placement. Now, this struck all of us as funny because of, well, how ridiculous Zane's tattoo is.
While sitting at the airport in Chicago yesterday on our way to Portland for our live show with Rock 106.3, Hot Wings pointed over to a guy sitting at the departure gate and said, "Man, that guy looks just like Quentin Tarantino." Joe's reply? "That's because it IS Quentin Tarantino.”
After a quick Google image search, we were 99% sure it was him. So Joe walked up to him, introduced himself as a big fan and asked if we could get a picture with him once the plane started to board. Tarantino declined, saying that photos made him uncomfortable. But that didn't stop us from going into full stalker mode and taking pictures and video anyway!
