Monchich Fired On Air And Monkeys Riding Dogs – What Happened On Te FBHW Show
Zane mentioned this morning on the show that he will be moving in the next month or so. Even though he has only mentioned it one other time on the air, it seems like everyone already knows where he is moving! He's pretty bummed about this due to the history of listeners to the show randomly stopping by his house. We looked at a list of the top selling celebrity endorsed perfumes from last year. We were shocked to find out which one sold the best, which led to some great New York accents from Zane and Hot Wings.
Zane told us early on about the latest happenings with intern Monchichi and the free car fiasco that has been unfolding over the last few days. There was an incident last night that he wanted to talk about as soon as it happened. It had to wait until later in the show though. While talking about a police sting that tried to catch massage parlors illegally giving "happy endings", we were reminded of the stunt that Producer Joe did a few years back where he had to enjoy a massage too much. We pulled it from the archives and relived the awkwardness. Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 for insensitive remarks he made recently. He commented on the fine yesterday and we played the audio. The girl that we talked about yesterday who was supposedly discriminated against by American Idol because of her weight was on Good Morning America yesterday. We played that audio but agreed that it probably wasn't an issue at all and it was something she had built up in her head.
We played a round of Hot Wings vs. Zane vs. Joe vs. Steve today. Today's topic: TV shows or movies with one word titles. Three of us did pretty well. One of us did not do so well. We checked out the video of a promotion from a minor league baseball game called "Cowboy Monkey Rodeo". It was exactly what it sounds like: monkeys riding dogs while they herd sheep. Incredible! Zane finally got to reveal the latest happenings with Monchichi and the free car that he was given by a friend of the show. It turns out that he and his father showed up at the dealership yesterday and told them they didn't want the FREE car and that the dealership had to go to their house and pick it up! We decided to poll the audience to find out if they thought we should fire him or not, since it's a terrible reflection on the show. The audience voted overwhelmingly that he should be fired.
Another air traffic controller fell asleep while on the job. The latest one happened at the airport in Reno and we had the audio of the radio transmissions. In today's FBHW Report, we talked about the verdict being handed down in the Barry Bonds case, as well as more details about the altercation that LeBron's mom had with a valet worker and the racist (?) comments she made to him. We closed the hour with a round of Dumber Than Zane Trivia, worth $4,800 from our friends at Cat Footwear.
Monchichi heard about the recent poll on the website about whether or not he should lose his internship or not, so he called in to give his side of the story. The entire last hour of the show was devoted to his explanation, as well as listener reaction to what he told us. We finally came to a decision towards the end of the show about his fate as an intern. Talk to you on Friday morning!
