This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for 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)
Now, I'm going to start off by pointing out that the show was really influenced by cheating this morning and we explored a ton. However, I felt there was something much more important to tackle for my talking point. On this show, we love a good debate and even though this subject didn't cause one for us, it sure is burning up TikTok. I know what you're thinking and yes, I feel the same but we're here so just enjoy the journey alright? So, a question was being posed about dressing but to be more specific, footwear. The question that triggered the talking was about how one puts on their socks and shoes. Do you do one sock/two sock, shoe/socks/shoe, sock/sock shoe/shoe tie/tie, sock/shoe/tie sock/shoe/tie, so many choices and so many improper answers (because one indicates that you are clearly a serial killer.) So, talking to Angi & Abe, they both agreed on the idea of doing sock/sock shoe/shoe tie/tie. The reason we're addressing this mess this morning (I know you're like what the hell is this idiot rambling on about,) well we have a discovery that is shocking (and probably made up but just go with it.) Those people who do the sock/shoe/tie and sock/shoe/tie are more than likely a serial killer. Of course, we overlooked all this and went on to the important stuff. For example, what happens if you're in an emergency and you put on your sock/shoe/tie on one leg and then there's an emergency and you have to run out and then you're running with only one thing on. This is further complicated by Angi being a Libra which means that her life needs to be balanced at all times hence the usage of sock/sock shoe/shoe tie/tie. Also on the unbalanced and therefore possibly unhinged design, if you pour the milk in your cereal bowl first before the cereal, then you are also definitely a serial killer. Hell, let's go one step further, if you drop your ice into a drink after you put the liquid in, you guessed it, serial killer. Angi actually had a bartender who served her a drink like that last week and luckily, she lived to tell the tale. Lastly, toilet paper should be added to the list and there are two ways to do it, the beard and the mullet. You want to do the beard, not the mullet and make sure you put it on the roll and don't just stick it on the bar like Jay the Straight does.
Other Stuff from Today's Show
So, as I said, cheating was a big topic today and you're about to get a double dose of it right now. Lately, cheating seems to be all the rage and that includes those chessplayer idiots who suggested a sex toy was alerting the other player on how to cheat. In that lane, there's another alleged game cheater but this time in the world of poker. A newcomer named Robbi Jade Lew beat a guy in a match the other day and almost immediately she was pegged as a cheater. The long of the short is a dumb move was made, she capitialized on it and she went on the win. The thing is, there is no actual indication of what she actually did but people are holding it against her because alleged cheating is enough to make people nuts. So, she might be a cheater and the chess guy might be a cheater but we want to know what the roadies cheated at. For example, Angi's brother would cheat by writing answers inside his baseball hat because he knew the teacher would force him to take his hat off and in turn, he could read the answers. It kind of reminded them of that episode of Growing Pains when known a-hole Kirk Cameron wrote answers on his shoes and got caught because his ego was out of control (talk about art imitating life.) So, tackling our other host, Abe cheated in Madden once which was so rage-inducing for his brother Sam, he quit the game and never came back. Even Panterica has cheated, when she once Shazamed a song in music class (shame on you Panterica!) As for me, I used to cheat in German all the time and though I think the teacher knew, he didn't seem to care. The one who did care was the substitute who caught me cheating and yep, there went that. With our sins confessed, we turned to the Request Line to hear all about the roadie cheating. Kimberly likes to play Monopoly and when she does, she makes sure she is the banker. This is so she can hide money on the board and make sure she wins. Angi isn't mad about all this because that game can run 7 hours sometimes but Abe, of course, was not having it. Steve was extremely disruptive in his 8th grade science class and he was forced to move his desk next to the teachers. He ended up getting the answers to the biggest test of the year and he scored so high, he set the curve and won an award for most improved student. Amy was in middle school when she cheated on the swim team by pulling the ropes to improve the speed of her backstroke. Matt would cheat on spelling tests in high school by having words on his notebook. Abe used to cheat in school as well by putting up a grid on the kid in front of him so he would have easy access to knowing the city streets. One of our favorite listeners Cindy Hernandez called to tell us all about how she cheated on her test using braille notes in her bag. We also heard from former Cub Sammy Sosa who told us he cheated during baseball. Basically, the lesson to take away from this is everyone cheats (not in relationships) and so it's okay I guess. If you are looking for more roadie comments or have your own, hit up our socials (FB group, Twitter, Instagram) and read up or drop us a comment.
Now, I did just say that not everyone cheats in relationships but still, there are some that do. To address that, we looked at how one cheating ass cheater was undone by his Alexa. That's right, if you intend to have a hoe over who isn't your main bitch, you should probably unplug your smart speaker. See, Alexa tends to save all your voice recordings and those in turn can be found on a computer for playback. Now, before you freak out like Abe did when he heard this, you have to understand that Alexa only captures you addressing her and saves those logs. That said, there is a log and voice history can be mined for all sorts of things like a woman's voice that does not belong to you. The guy who was caught cheating screwed up because he let his side piece tell Alexa to play "Power Trip" by Miguel. This alone was bad but only made worse when her name stepped in and told Alexa to crank it to volume 8. So, in a way this is bad if you're a cheater but good in other situations. For example, if you're being robbed, you can say "Alexa, play 95.5 and also, call the police." There will be logs of your house being broken into while you get to hear some great music. This could also be useful if you are the side bitch and you want to break up your man's relationship. All you need to do is tell her a bunch of stuff "Alexa, where do I find the sex toys? Alexa, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop? Alexa, why is this man got his woman's bra hanging up from the side of the bed?" Then, when you've accumulated enough, slip the actual girlfriend a note and tell her to check the voice logs. Boom, you snagged a cheating man, lucky you!
Finally, tomorrow is the 2 year anniversary of The Angi Taylor Show. That's right, it's been two whole years since this mess started and we are showing no signs of slowing down. When we first began, it was all wearing masks and being in an empty building. Funny enough, the same can kind of be said now to an extent aside from people working on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is wild how the two years flew by and that they both worked even when they had covid during Thanksgiving week of 2020. That said, you should still be telling people about the show because most people don't search the dials and furthermore, you should be with us during the show tomorrow to celebrate.
