Chris Hemsworth, Nu Thang + More – May 9 FBHW Show Recap
Producer Joe was back this morning after his day off. He was pretty sick over the weekend and his voice was cracking like a teenager. A Hampton Inn in Ohio had their flag was at half staff, but only because it was broken. It happened to be right after Bin Laden was killed, so some local idiots thought that they were mourning his death. They threatened to chop the pole down and drive through the front of the building. There is an asteroid the size of an aircraft carrier that is going to pass between the earth and moon. We somehow got on the subject of Game of Thrones, the HBO medieval drama Free Beer started watching recently.
We talked about the NBA playoffs early this morning, including the Lakers’ Andrew Bynum hitting a guy so hard that his elbow was grossly bent the wrong way! During this segment, Hot Wings had a great repeat of something that Free Beer had mentioned about 15 seconds earlier. This got us on the topic of some of his past repeats, so we dug them out for some entertainment.
We heard about a story over the weekend where a middle school was banning Smarties and Pixie Stix. The reason they are banned is because kids are somehow smoking them. We got Zane’s daughter on the phone to talk about the kids in her school that were doing this. We checked out some of the newly released videos of Bin Laden in his hideout. He was apparently very obsessed with his image and how he was portrayed on TV. Joe managed to track down the guy from the ‘Nu Thang’ video that we watched last week! His name is Michael Clancy and he’s now a 29 year old lawyer. We talked to him on the show this morning and He gave us the story of how Nu Thang came to be.
Based on the Nu Thang interview, we asked listeners to call in and tell us what they have on tape that they wouldn’t want anyone else to see. This segment turned in to listeners telling us horribly embarrassing moments and a retelling of the Zane infamous summer camp story. In today’s FBHW Report, we checked out the video of Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch getting in to a pissing match after yesterday’s race. Charlie Sheen is teaching his kids to say the word “rehab” so they’ll always know where their mother is. We asked for listeners to call in and tell us of the terrible things that their exes have taught their kids.
We talked to actor Chris Hemsworth on the show recently about playing the role of Thor in the new movie. If you missed it, you can hear it on the Interviews page. It was a tough flying weekend all around, but especially for a couple of Memphis-based Muslims. Even after passing through security with no issues, the pilot of the plane they were on refused to let them fly! He kicked them off the plane and they had to take a later flight. We closed the show with some talk on the Kentucky Derby and, more entertainingly, playing the horse calls with the horses named “My Wife Knows Everything” and “ARRRRRR”. Talk to you on Tuesday!
