Case of the Mondays - ATS - 4.1.24

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.)

Well, it's Monday, it's disgusting outside and it's April Fool's Day. Obviously, the prank centric day is usually a minefield for places to reap bad jokes upon anyone who is stupid enough to walk into them. On this show, we don't go in for stuff like that because honestly, we get so much stuff wrong as is that there's no need to revolve a joke day around it. That said, everyone knows that registries are something people love and they exist for weddings, babies, teachers and other situations that merit gift giving. In the Daily Discussion Topic today though, we were introduced to the idea of divorce registries, which is apparently the hot new trend. Obviously, some people tend to do just one registry and call it a day, not indulging in a second, third or eigth wedding. However, the reason that divorce registries are gaining steam has to do with the idea behind a divorce. When you RSVP to the negative on your marriage, you tend to end up financially vulnerable with half your stuff gone in an instant. Some people may find themselves with appliances, tools, even a couch. Some people tend to think this is a great idea and kind of even better than a wedding registry. After all, when getting married, most people already have two of everything. For example, Angi and Jay the Straight got married in their 30's so they were pretty much established already. To combat getting things they did not need, they formulated a two point attack plan. 1) They straight up just asked for cash. 2) On the gift front, they registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond which allowed them to return anything bought there for cash. The overall profit in turn was used for a Vegas trip where Angi probably put them in poverty (I'm assuming, remember misinformation is paramount on this show.) There is an idea of you bought it, you broke it to consider here and that spousal support should help supplement a divorce but let's just run with this for a moment. One thing you should definitely not do is be like Marris who attempted to throw a divorce party for a friend and well, it was not the move. Before we actually move on to the roadies additions to the list of things the roadies you would put on a divorce registry, it should be noted that unmarried Marris would load up on video games because once he was rid of the ball and chain, he would finally have time to game. Sure, he doesn't have that time now but this is a fantasy. Over on the Request Line, we took a mix of calls and texts. Head Roadie Bob said 40% flour (cough.) Jackie would want to work on her revenge body post divorce so she would get leather pants and a crop top to show it of. Funny enough, a crop top and leather pants is one of Angi's favorite outfit combos. Other texts were looking to pay lawyer fees via Visa gift cards. Another sought gift cards for Rick's Cabaret. We capped this with my favorite roadie, Head Roadie Coach Joe who said a hammer. This would be given to a friend to hit him in the head with if he was dumb enough to get married again (he's been married twice.) Angi also thanked Coach Joe for buying the other Head Roadies shots at Kegs & Eggs and in turn basically ratted him out for drinking before going to work that day (thanks Angi!)

Other Stuff from Today's Show:

So it's April Fool's and that means that we're pranking you by giving a double dose of lists as well as a fact that we're definitely not wrong about (the prank is that we're not presenting misinformation for once.) Starting this list sandwich is overrated tourist attractions, you know like that World's Largest Cob of Corn that Angi saw in Iowa once. While the ones on the list are better known, they still all suck.

1. Mount Rushmore. Marris has never been but most people who go expected it to be bigger. Angi has been and once you see faces in a rock, it turns into ... "now what?"

2. Las Vegas. Marris said it is more overwhelming for some and Angi doesn't think it is overrated at all. The thing is, it is not for people who aren't gamblers or partiers. It's even worse if you're sober, which Angi has only ever been the nine months she was pregnant.

3. Plymouth Rock. Marris said totally though the area is nice. The rock is behind bars and Angi tossed in the Liberty Bell as well. Neither of these are Insta worthy moments.

4. Times Square. Marris offered that he is fine with a ton of people at a fest but not in a downtown setting. Angi said it's crowded and gross. She once took her daughter who loved Frozen at the time and they spotted a guy dressed as her who stank and hadn't washed his costume in three years.

5. Lombard Street in San Francisco. Oh, you enjoy traffic, because this is how you get traffic.

Also on the list was The Hollywood Walk of Fame (full of homeless people and drug addicts,) Bourbon Street (neither agree with this addition though non party people and residents probably hate it.) Angi also suggested The Bean get added to the list.

So, it's really weird to launch a product on April 1st because most people are assuming that what you're offering is a joke. Though some April Fool's items have actually become reality from enough clamouring for them, there were actual launches done on this day that revolutionized the game. For example, Gmail turns 20 today, which seems wild because you would think it is older than that. Most people at the time didn't believe the offering that said you would get 1 gig of storage which was unheard of in 2004 (hence the idea that it was all a prank.) This basically allowed for people to store and not read 13,000 emails at the time as opposed to Yahoo's 50. It also opened the door for searching for emails. Obviously this is useful for people that are not Marris who lives a life of email clutter. For 1.8 billion people though, Gmail is amazing and the ability to store things in the Drive and have cloud access only makes it even more chef's kiss. Angi, archaic queen of the interwebs, is still on Yahoo for junk mail (same sis) but also has a Gmail as well (though she uses her iHeart email primarily.) We capped this actual date related story with a prank Angi's daughter once pulled on Jay the Straight. On a day when he had a business meeting, she stole all his left shoes and hid them in a bag, which drove him bananas (and now he has his wife around to continue the trend.)

Finally, Buzzfeed came up with a list of The Twenty Worst Songs of the 90's. Seeing as we don't have all day, here is the highly disagreeable top 10.

10. "You're Still the One" by Shania Twain (Angi loves this song.)

9. "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred (Marris loves it, Angi likes it but it's not great.)

8. "Mmmbop" by Hanson (We get it.)

7. "Macarena" by Los del Río

6. "Higher" by Creed (Marris doesn't get this, same with Nickelback hate because people secretly love them. They were both huge bands and sold out arenas.)

5. "Who Let the Dogs Out" by Baha Men (This was overplayed and wore us down according to Marris.)

4. "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus

3. "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies (Angi hated this song and hated playing it because she felt dumb mumbling the title.)

2. "Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of...) by Lou Bega (Marris was meh towards it and Angi's said girls only liked it because they were name dropped in it.)

1. "Faith" by Limp Bizkit (Hard disagree here on this one.)

The mascot of the St. Paul Saints is a pig called Ozempig after a naming contest had 2,300 entries and it was chosen as the most amazing. Obviously, social media got mad because even though this team is known for wacky stunts, people get mad about everything. However, the name is staying and this skinny little pig is Angi's new boyfrenn.
