Concerning Mike Lee\\\'s comments on really DUMB wedding songs... Probably the best one I heard was from Meat Loaf in concert. He said he was meeting and greeting people at a function, and a couple came up to him and said \\\"We just wanted to let you know how much we love your work. In fact, our favorite song of yours was our wedding song.\\\" The song was -- wait for it -- \\\"Two Out of Three Ain\\\'t Bad.\\\" Yeah...one of many reasons why you should always check the lyrics. Rank that story right up there to when President Reagan said \\\"Born in the U.S.A.\\\" was the \\\"modern\\\" national anthem of the United States... \\\"Ummm, Mr. President, I think you need to review the lyrics of Mr. Springsteen\\\'s little diddy.\\\"
So...don\\\'t hold back, Hrab, what do you REALLY think of my boy, Bear?! *LOL* Fantastic show as always, and please give my best to Michael York. I thought he was absolutely brilliant in his reading of Leann\\\'s comments. Just capital. Smashing, I say. Talk to you later, my friend! And as a quick tease -- Man Vs Child 2 is in production!
fyi, on an older show note, I actually heard over the radio somebody request Clapton\'s \"You Look Lovely Tonight\" for his fiancee. In truth, I have less a prob with it than I do with the old Sinatra stand-by, Mack the Knife. Glamorizing mafia bullshit, which has yet to be something we\'ve matured out of. As Hitchens says, we\'re less than a hair\'s breadth from being chimps, and our religions(and if I might paraphrase, our entertainment) bear it out. Would like to know what the Hrab-ster thinks of Germany not allowing Tom Cruise to film due to his Scientologist membership. While I dislike the business cult that Hubbard created, I can\'t help but think this is overkill.
OK, I gotta ask, Who exactly are you humping, Leann? Wait! Don\\\'t answer, I\\\'ll just imagine someone (not me, Definitely not me.... OK, me) for you to hump. Yes, I\\\'ll Just imagine Leann Humping my leg like Princess Leia on Luke in the original Star Wars poster.
Geo, I agree with you about Bear Grylls. If there\\\'s a gully, a river, any kind of gap, he has to leap across it theatrically. I used to do that when I was about 7. I\\\'m sure he likes rolling down grassy hills, shouting \\\"WHEEEEEEEEE!\\\" He was described in one of our TV Guides in Britain as \\\"the world\\\'s first post-apocalyptic heart-throb\\\". Personally I think he\\\'s a bit of a tit.
O M F G HOLE eEEEEeeee CRAP here is your comment I FUCKING love you. Hole EEEE CRAP stupid fucking keyboards YOU kept me sane while packing...while MANY weiner dogs were running around me.... yes yesyesyes I am sorry I couldn\\\'t do the play by play stupid Leann comments OMG I fucking LOVE you. Do you HEAR me? you get \\\"IT\\\" YOU get \\\"it\\\" stupid idiophones and metaliphones they DO NOT translate into Urkranian, Slovakian Irish midgets.... no *I* do NOT hate George Hrab I FUCKING LOVE George Hrab ok I am calling you holy hell holy hell hump hump it it it it it it thanx.com.org.net.info love love love love
Hey, This show continues to impress. Always trying new things, with a healthy dose of ongoing bits. Not all of it works, but the fact that you continue to stretch yourself with new material rather than just coast on stuff you know already works, really keeps this show exciting. Always happy when a new episode shows up. Thanks!
