Killing of Bin Laden, Charlie Sheen + More – May 2 FBHW Show Recap
There was breaking news overnight that Joe and Steve had no clue about because they passed out early from their London trip travel. This news was, obviously, that Osama Bin Laden had been killed! We talked about this for a great portion of the show this morning.
We took a bunch of listener calls early in the show about the killing of Bin Laden. It was hard for us to believe that it had been so long that he has been sought. Free Beer sent us all a link that we could not open until we were live on the air. It was a picture of UFC fighter Mark “The Machine” Hominick’s gross deformed face after it was pounded into a massive double meatball looking lump. You can see that in Cool Links. Also in the Cool Links section, you’ll see a link to a story that we talked about this morning about adults who bet on peewee football in Florida. Serious cash is exchanging hands over games between kids who are about 10 years old!
When reporting about Bin Laden’s death, it was apparently pretty common for reporters to refer to him as “Obama” instead of “Osama”. We played quite a few clips of reporters making that mistake this morning. While talking about him being killed, we questioned who would get the $25M reward that was on his head. A current soldier called in with an explanation as to why the Navy Seals would not be allowed to take the reward.
The prep service that we use was already buzzing with the latest spoof songs about Bin Laden’s death. They, of course, were horrible! We played some audio from the White House Correspondence Dinner of the president mocking Donald Trump to his face and also of a comedian just burying him. We also played the audio of Trump getting fussy and using the whole “they should be focused on the war…” comment when asked about it. We closed the hour by talking to Joe and Steve about their London adventure, but mostly about their layover in Amsterdam!
Check out the Show Meeting video in the Show Plus section that we recorded this morning. Zane was trying to not offend our new intern by curbing some of his language. Hot Wings didn’t think it needed to be done and made it a little awkward. Charlie Sheen wrote Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre a letter calling him a loser and claimed he was nothing before Sheen stepped into his office. We’re all tired of Sheen. We closed the show by talking a bit more about Bin Laden and also telling what we learned today. Talk to you on Tuesday!
