This is a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting and funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast version of the show. If you want a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.
Call in Point:
(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed.)
As you've come to learn if you're a regular listener of the show, Angi loves a good Reddit topic (I mean, who doesn't.) While scrolling the other day she came across a really fun discussion piece. If brands were to use honest slogans, what would they say. For example, Hot Pockets would be rebranded with - Every bite is a different temperature. There were actually several of these dropped before the reins were handed over to the listeners. Ramen Noodles - I get paid in a few days (alternately, I'm a college student.) Facebook - Making it easier to stalk people since 2004. Yellow Pages - Here, you throw this away. Youtube - Where the world watches ads. Altoids - Use the box for anything else. Taco Bell - You can make 32 different things with these five ingredients, why mess with perfection? As for Abe's contribution to the topic, it was a well known classic. Totino's Pizza Rolls - Hey, I heard you want to have diarrhea while also scorching the roof of your mouth. Angi added a few of her own. Nature Valley - I see you've opted to eat a bag of crumbs. La Croix - A gentle whisper of flavor in your carbonated water. IKEA - When you're looking for a good excuse to divorce your spouse. Turning to the phones, Head Roadie Bill offered up Taco Bell as well. Taco Bell - When you only wanna commit to using the bathroom for 8 hours. Frank brought up amazing cereal Captain Crunch. Captain Crunch - Just screw the roof of your mouth. I thought of two almost immediately. White Castle - It's 3 A.M. and I've been drinking since 6 and don't have to work tomorrow. Also, and this one is a bit of an all encompassing one for alcohol in general. Alcohol - Side effects include laughing, anger, bliss, crying, verbal assault, vomiting, falling over drunk at parties, regretful hook ups and drunk dials/tweets.
All the Rest:
It's a day that ends in the word day so that means Abe has an idea that's essentially very Abe. This morning, Abe proposed that there be a new law, beneficial of course to himself but others (so thoughtful of him.) He suggested that those people who get up early shouldn't be subject to waiting for red lights (to change and or in general.) In a bit of interesting tidbit we learned that Abe blows through red lights, so does Angi and apparently everyone else for that matter. When you go to work as early as they do and the roads are relatively clear, why not. Plus, it's not like they're not making sure that there is no one coming through on top of that. Though Abe has been doing it forever, Angi only picked it up as a bad habit. You see, she saw trash men doing it all the time and so now, led by example, she does the same. There is of course the pesky problem of the police and that whole law breaking that comes from stuff like this. Fear not though, because there is the Waze app to inform you of when you should be behaving to stave off the police. When Angi mentioned that this was probably illegal, Abe went on to mention that he assumed radar guns were legal. Sidenote, why does that response seem like such an Abe Kanan response? Anyway, Abe countered with a thought of his own, what are the cops possibly gonna say, show me your phone? Ironically, in all of this there was actually a pretty good idea pushed forth. Red lights should be like stop signs. Green light, stop sign red light (so you get a stop in at least) and then back to green. This of course wouldn't make sense for an all day routine but for the overnight hours. Like 1 to 4 A.M. would be ideal for Abe. Angi was open to it being 3 to 5 A.M. This deep dive into what people should and shouldn't be doing ended up with a plea to the city, after implementing this great light idea, could you please fill up some of these stupid pot holes as well.
Current Champion: Trenton
Challenger Song Choice: "Rock and Roll All Nite"
Champion Song Choice: "Metal Health"
Observation: Scandalous, absolutely fun scandal. This got so dirty that unless you were using the app, you missed a really ridiculous zinger. I mean, Trenton definitely stumbled some and had to go low. Big Poppa really laid in about brain damage, which I appreciate. This will come down to song imo. Update After: Big Poppa won and is done, he doesn't have time for this. That means a brand new set of fresh players tomorrow.
Winner: Big Poppa
