Let's Give 'Em Something to Buzz About: By Deirdre Imus, 8-23-2016 - There’s been a lot of buzz lately about honeybees, those quasi-nuisances that can send even the most stoic among us into a tailspin trying to avoid an encounter. And while a bee sting is undesirable, the pain you’ll feel then is nothing compared to the pain we’ll all feel – and soon – if we don’t do something to protect these sometimes petrifying pollinators. 

 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening. When I founded The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center fifteen years ago, concern about our children's health being impacted by toxic exposures in the environment was not the hot button, trendy issue it is today.  Read more...

 

Deirdre's Dish Pick

 

Frances' Vegetable "Fried" Rice - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys.  I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients. Brown rice takes its name from the outer bran coating that is left intact rather than removed in milling, as it is in white rice.  Because of this, it is higher in fiber, vitamin B, and important minerals than white rice is.  It also takes a while longer to cook, but the delicious nutty flavor, as well as the additional nutritional value, make it worth the time.  The edamame in this dish also provides a good source of protein.

If you have a fond memory from your childhood about some of the dishes we post please click here to contact us, we would love to hear your story.

If you have a Healthy Recipe that you enjoy and would like to see others indulge in, please share it with us: Deirdre.Imus@hackensackmeridian.org - You may have your recipe posted live on my Recipe Page!

    Down Goes DeBlasio

    6:05:00 A.M. – The I-Man begins the program with an observation about one of the local spots on WABC in New York.  The tag line for which is:  “If you have Type 2 Diabetes, call ‘Big Lou’.” “BIG LOU???” The I-Man asks incredulously. It’s actually a commercial for a service that helps overweight, unhealthy men on medications to get Life Insurance.  But if you have Hepatitis C, you need to call ‘Tiny Tony’.

    ‘BIG LOU’ BELIEVE US, WHEN HE OFFERS YOU ‘LIFE INSURANCE’...YOU’D BETTER TAKE IT

    6:08:56 A.M. – Both Connell and Warner are absent today, with Noam Laden and Gunz respectively, filling in for them. Noam is fine, if a bit stiff and dry, but the pacing of the program is off when everyone needs to stop for Gunz so we can define all the ‘hard’ words for him.

    “EMPTY”

    “UM...CAN YOU PLEASE USE IT IN A SENTENCE?”

    “YOUR HEAD IS ‘EMPTY’”

    “...A...M...”

    (BUZZER)

    6:15:44 A.M. – It’s Paul Simon’s birthday.  He’s 74 years old.  Not too far off from when ‘Darkness’ will be his ‘Old Friend.’ Maybe even sooner if his old lady has a few pops and decides to use him as a pinata.

    WE GUESS HE MUST’VE BEEN A LITTLE CRITICAL OF HIS BIRTHDAY CAKE

    6:40:27 A.M. Fred Dicker, the State Political Columnist for the New York Post.  He’s the go-to guy for when you need to get the 411 on New York State.  This morning, he talks about the ‘Turf War’ between Mayor DeBlasio and Governor Cuomo.  Not exactly Ali/Frasier or Custer/Sitting Bull, or for that matter, Ross/Rachel.  But that’s what he’s got.  So we listen.  

    AND DOWN GOES DEBLASIO...

    7:05:37 A.M. – The I-Man discovered that his clock is one hour ahead.  Which it should be, considering its set to New York time, but...it’s even an hour ahead of that.  What’s the Daylight Savings Time deal?  Spring Forward?  Fall Back?  We don’t want the Boss thinking he’s got one fewer hour left.  On the program, of course.  On the program. 

    LOOKS LIKE THE ATOMIC CLOCK MIGHT ACTUALLY BE A LITTLE BEHIND...

    7:15:44 A.M. –  In honor of Garfunkel’s Partner’s birthday, the Boss has been playing some of his favorite ‘Rhymin’ Simon’ tunes...but says that he keeps flashing back to the image of Paul and his wife, Edie Brickell, in court.  He says she has that look on her face that reminds him of the Cialis Commercial, where the wife is trying to paint the fence, and her husband walks over with that look in his eyes... and she’s thinking... “Oh great...stupid’s been to the drugstore again...”

    “BUT YOUR HONOR...SHE TRIED TO TWIST IT OFF...”

    7:25:06 A.M. – During his sportscast, Gunz, (Or as we like to refer to him, ‘The Anti-Warner’) pauses to see if the I-Man is still with us.  Of course he is, he’s just not listening, which is the side-effect most associated with Gunz.  One day, Gunz will check and he will discover that the Boss is NOT with us, he’s gone to that Cattle Ranch in the Sky...at least we ASSUME it’s in the sky. It could be another place where the temperature is 451 Degrees Fahrenheit, and the Humidity is 250%

    WITH US...OR NOT WITH US?  SOMEBODY HOLD A MIRROR UNDER HIS NOSE

    7:39:16 A.M. HOLLYWOOD & VINE or, as we like to call it, DEIRDRE, RIEDEL & THE KID FROM THE SHORT BUS. Gunz establishes his position as Captain Clueless, when he says that he thought Cary Grant was a woman.  We hate to break the news to him about Carroll O’Connor and Leslie Nielsen. 

    GUNZ SHOWS SURPRISE: “YOU MEAN STACY KEACH IS A MAN?”

    7:40:22 A.M. – Deirdre shares that she watched “Far From The Madding Crowd”, the movie based on the Thomas Hardy Novel of the 19th Century about young English woman and her three suitors.  It stars Carey Mulligan, the lovely actress who played opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Baz Luhrrman’s ‘The Great Gatsby’.   The D-Woman then confesses she’s got a ‘Girl Crush’ on Ms. Mulligan.  Well, there goes our afternoon.

    “LET ME GET RID OF GRAMPS, CAREY, AND WE CAN GO FOR SOME VEGAN CHILI”

    7:41:44 A.M. – Gunz weighs in on the Hollywood Flops, like ‘Tomorrowland’ and the recent disaster, ‘Pan’.   “I’d rather read your book than watch Tomorrowland.’ Says Gunz to Michael Riedel, author of ‘Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway’.  Which is quite flattering to Riedel, as...it will be Gunz’s first book.

    “HEY!  WHERE ARE THE PICTURES?”

    7:42:09 A.M. – The aforementioned Michael Riedel is disdainful of Daniel Craig’s revelation that he will no longer play James Bond, and incredulously, says that he believes Roger Moore was the best James Bond.  ROGER MOORE?  The ‘Finocchio’ Bond?’  Surely he’s kidding.

    UNFORTUNATELY...HE’S NOT.

    8:07:34 A.M. – Imus is irritated with CNN for all the hype they’re giving the ‘Free Podium’ for tonight’s debate... just in case Joe Biden should show up.  We’ve seen this movie before...

    THE PODIUM IS FULL...IT’S JUST THE CHAIR THAT’S EMPTY

    8:40:09 A.M. – Ray Kelly, the former Two – Time Police Commissioner of New York City is on and...you cannot help but like this guy. He talks terror prevention.  And, somehow, we think that he uses his charm to ‘disarm’ terrorists.  You know, “May I have this Dance, Achmed?  And then Ray crushes the ISIS member’s esophagus with his bare hands.

    “AFTER I CHOKE HIM OUT...WHERE DO YOU WANT ME TO PUT HIM?”

    Happy Birthday Dick Gregory!

    6:05:00 A.M. – Bo Dietl ‘Better-Dealed’ us:  “I have a hit on Fox at 6:40.”    But, the I-Man informs us, Bo is now the proud grandfather of a healthy baby boy.  ‘Jaxson’.  We never knew his daughter was impregnatated.  So, “Congratulations to him…and he’s banned from the program for life.”

    6:08:56 A.M. – Happy Birthday to the GREAT Dick Gregory, who is 83 today, but, according to the Boss, channeling the Poet and Philosopher Richard Kinky ‘Big Dick’ Friedman… Dick is reading at an 84 year old level.

    WE WOULD LIKE DICK TO BE A ‘WRITE IN’ CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT

    6:15:44 A.M. – Imus chews out Connell for saying, “Don’t you remember?” after the I-Man asks him a question.  “If I’m asking you…OBVIOUSLY I don’t remember.  STOP DOING THAT!”

    NO, I DON’T REMEMBER BUT... THAT REMINDS ME OF A SONG...

    6:40:27 A.M. The I-Man reports that he had the road from the Rodeo Arena out to the main road at the Ranch covered in Asphalt, to the tune of 150 THOUSAND dollars.  Th…Th…Th…THOUSAND dollars. Then Deirdre, on her morning walk, discovered something shiny stuck in the newly paved road…not a diamond, unfortunately, but a water bottle.  Needless to say, there’s a meeting scheduled with the Contractors this afternoon.  We think the tenor of this little get-together will be somewhat similar to that at the Battle of Stalingrad.

    THE I-MAN ARTICULATED HIS POINTS ON WHITEBOARD WHICH WAS THEN FOLLOWED BY A POWERPOINT PRESENTATION

    7:05:10 A.M. – The I-Man has kind words for Cooper Manning, brother to Eli and Peyton.  He thinks the lad is quite funny...funnier than that guy Rob Riggle on Fox NFL Sunday. 

    GREAT.  SOMEBODY ELSE THE I-MAN WILL SAY IS FUNNIER THAN US.

    7:09:37 A.M.  On the other hand, Imus reveals that he has been invited by our old colleague, Karith Foster, to join her network on LinkedIn. We’re sure that Imus accepted it...just so he could endorse her as a ‘Comedian’.

    THE BOSS JUST SIGNED UP FOR ‘LINKEDIN’ JUST SO HE CAN REFUSE INVITATIONS TO CONNECT

    7:22:44 A.M. – Connell does the Box Office report, and, apparently, ‘Pan’, the reboot / retelling / reinvention of the Peter Pan story made only 15 Million dollars, while the film cost 150 Million. Imus delights in the misfortune of the Warner Brothers Studio who are watching their money ‘Fly Away to Neverland.’

    WARNER BROTHERS C.E.O. KEVIN TSUJIHARA

    7:40:06 A.M. NAT IS BACK on VINNIE FROM QUEENS!   He is audibly worked up over The Dodgers’ Chase Utley, whose ‘Hard Slide’ broke Mets’ shortstop Ruben Tejada’s right leg.  He says he will be at Citi Field this afternoon, waiting for the Dodgers’ travel bus to arrive.  He wants to put an Ass Whuppin on the L.A. Second Baseman.  Connell tells us that the authorities are investigating such threats...we hate to think the F.B.I. shows up at Nat’s apartment as he is getting into his Mr. Met Costume.

    “COME WITH US, MR. CANDIDO...WE HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS WE WANT TO ASK YOU.”

    7:43:26 A.M. – The I-Man asks the panel what they think about ‘Participation Trophies’, awarded to kids playing on sports teams who, might not be all that athletic.  Nobody thinks it’s a good idea...except for Gunz...who didn’t even get one of THOSE when he played Little League.

    8:07:34 A.M. – Connell reports that inmates are being used to fight the California Wildfires...so, if they get too close, Orange will DEFINITELY be the New Black.

    “I LEFT SOLITARY FOR THIS??”

    8:29:11 A.M. – The I-Man is disdainful of the ‘Pan’ movie...wonders who thought anybody would want to see it.  “C’mon Bobby, stop downloading porn, we’re going to see ‘Pan’.”

    “NOT NOW, DAD!   I’M ON ‘HORNYTUBE’!”

    8:39:43 A.M. –   I-Fave Laura Ingraham is on, tosses out a few suggestions for who she thinks would be good candidates to fill John Boehner’s Speaker of the House vacancy, and she gives off the impression that she’s not a big fan of President Obama’s.  We’re shocked.

    LAURA AND HER HOME SKILLET...JUST CHILLIN’

    A Tribute to John Lennon

    6:05:00 A.M. – Today would have been John Lennon’s 75th Birthday.  It’s hard to believe that he’s been gone 35 years…and that John Mayer isn’t. 

    ALL HE WAS SAYING…WAS GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

    6:15:44 A.M. – Bernard compares the position of Speaker of the House to being “Rosie O’Donnell’s Proctologist.”   We don’t think it’s even THAT good.

    THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN BEING ROSIE O’DONNELL’S PROCTOLOGIST…IS ROSIE O’DONNELL BEING A PROCTOLOGIST

    6:40:27 A.M. There is no guest booked, so we get an extended Bernie Briefing with a clip of Donald Trump and a Columbian Woman who, apparently, is not only his biggest fan, but intends to vote for him.  Which is great, except we’re not sure she’s a citizen.  Which might put a damper on her plans.

    THE CANDIDATE GIVING ONE OF HIS FANS… ‘THE REACH AROUND’

    7:15:37 A.M.  Kevin McCarthy has dropped out of the race for Speaker of the House, and Bernard suspects it’s due to a ‘Skeleton’ in his closet, that being the alleged affair he had with Congresswoman Renee Ellmers.  Which, we believe, is much better than if Congressman McCarthy was in the closet himself.

    HEY KEVIN!  YOU DIDN’T SEE LINDSEY GRAHAM IN THERE, DID YOU?

    7:45:16 A.M. Vinnie from Queens Among other things, the Boys discuss whether or not the Mets should get Yoneis Cespedes next year, the Derek Fisher / Matt Barnes altercation…and Phil Jackson’s looking over Derek Fisher’s shoulder…a position, from where, one would think he’d have been able to give the man a heads up that Matt Barnes was driving 95 miles to beat the $#!+ out of him.

    MATT BARNES ON HIS WAY TO VISIT DEREK FISHER.  HE LOOKS A LITTLE UPSET.

    8:07:34 A.M. – Connell reports that the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize this year is…surprisingly, not Pope Francis, but rather ‘The Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet’.  Which we’re pretty happy about as we have all their records.

    THEIR FIRST RECORD

    AND THEIR LAST

    8:25:11 A.M. – Bernie calls Alan Colmes out for ‘Journalistic Cowardice’ for not being more assertive in getting more out of his guest, Ben Carson, about the allegations that, as a surgeon, Dr. Carson was sued 6 times for Malpractice, including one incident involving Ben leaving a sponge in the brain of one of his patients.  If we were him, we certainly would have asked Dr. Carson if he was trying to ‘Brainwash’ the man.  See what we did there?

    NOT ONLY DID HE LEAVE A SPONGE IN A MAN’S BRAIN, HE LEFT A BRAIN IN SPONGEBOB

    8:39:43 A.M. – Fox News Analyst Catherine Herridge is the guest, and discusses the attempts of the Russians and North Koreans to hack her email server. We would also add to that list Former President Bill Clinton.  And he probably did it with an axe.

    “LET ME TAKE CARE OF THAT SERVER FOR YOU, HILL…”

    Way To Go Wyatt!

    6:05:00 A.M. – All is right with the world.  The I-Man is back after a two-day hiatus, and WYATT WON BOTH HIGH SCHOOL RODEOS.   Whipped up on the other ropers, big time.  By OVER THREE SECONDS, which, in Rodeo, is an eternity…which is also true with men suffering from Premature…you know.  At least that’s what they tell themselves.

    “I’D SAY ‘IT HAPPENS TO EVERY GUY, HONEY’…BUT UNLIKE RODEO, BEING FAST ISN’T REALLY A GOOD THING…”

    6:08:56 A.M. – Warner reports that Yankee Pitcher C.C. Sabathia won’t be with the Yankees in their Playoff Game tonight against the Houston Astros, as he is going to rehab for alcohol addiction.  The I-Man is sympathetic to Mr. Sabathia’s plight:  “Hey, you Fat Pussy, why don’t you get sober and start striking out people?”   He then softens a bit, empathizing with the Alcoholic C.C.   “God Bless you…you Fat Pussy.”

    YANKEES MANAGER JOE GIRARDI SHOULD’VE GOTTEN A CLUE WHEN THEY’D FIND C.C. IN THE STANDS DURING THE GAMES

    6:15:44 A.M. – Warner also reports that Rick Pitino claims that he did not know that his assistant was hiring hookers to entertain potential recruits for the University of Louisville Cardinals Basketball team.   “You’re not supposed to do that, right?” the I-Man asks.  

    IS IT TOO LATE TO MATRICULATE?

    6:40:27 A.M. Fox News Contributor Monica Crowley is on, and when Imus asks her what she thinks about Trump’s assertion that the Russians taking on Syria is not a bad thing, she reminds him that her former boss, Richard Nixon, got the Russians OUT of the Middle East…and Obama let them back in.  Maybe they should’ve built a wall.

    THIS SHOULD KEEP THE RUSSIANS OUT…

     6:42:56 A.M. – Monica continues…telling the Boss that a NAVY SEAL told her that they could smash ISIS in three weeks.  Of course, if Leif Babin and his buddy Jocko were still members of that Legendary, Elite, Special Ops Team, it would only take about three MINUTES.

    “OKAY…THAT’S DONE…WANT US TO GO OVER TO NORTH KOREA NOW?  WE THINK WE CAN TAKE KIM JONG UN DOWN BY LUNCHTIME…”

    7:15:37 A.M. – Incredulously and magnanimously, the I-Man tells Warner that he’s allowed to GUARANTEE tonight’s Yankees/Astros Game.  He says the Astros will win.  It is yet to be determined what the punishment will be should the Yankees win…but we think it may involve Warner walking around the Stadium in the Bronx with a tray around his neck going  “Hot Dawgee…Hot Dawgee…”

    ABOUT AS CLOSE TO A ‘FOOT LONG’ AS WARNER IS APT TO GET

    7:22:44 A.M. – Connell reads a report about Governor Jerry Brown’s signing of the California Bill that would allow Assisted Suicide…and he suggests that Joe Biden is ‘Allegedly a Catholic’, because he supports the practice.   We’re not sure how you would prosecute an offender…unless he didn’t do it correctly, in which case, he really didn’t break the law after all.  All we know is… It’s good to know that California has made the practice legal…that relief is a mere plane ride away on those days when the I-Man is in a particularly cranky mood.

    “C’MON, GRANDMA…DRINK THIS!  IT’S…CANDY JUICE!  YEAH, THAT’S IT!  CANDY JUICE…SO DRINK IT!   JUST DRINK IT, DAMMIT!  YOU DON’T WANT TO JUST LIE AROUND FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, DO YOU?  C’MON NOW, DON’T MAKE ME SHOVE IT DOWN YOUR THROAT!  JESUS!  IT’S JUST A LITTLE BIT OF CYANIDE AND WATER…IT’LL BE OVER IN A COUPLE SECONDS AND YOU WON’T FEEL A THING.”

    7:30:06 A.M. – Michael Lindell, (Of My Pillow Fame) has introduced a line of superior sheets…called ‘Giza’…made from the best strain of Egyptian Cotton.  Deirdre extolls the benefits of them.  All we want to know is…are they waterproof?

    “WE MUST CONTINUE SEARCHING THE DESERT UNTIL WE FIND THE FINEST COTTON…ONE THAT WILL REPEL LIQUIDS…AND IS RESISTANT TO STAINS…”

    7:40:16 A.M. Hollywood & Vine, where Imogen Lloyd Webber, on hiatus, is replaced by Gunz Gunzelman…yeah, there’s a good substitute.

    SERIOUSLY? 

    7:40:19 A.M. – They begin the segment with Deirdre complaining about the noise made by the I-Man’s bare feet scratching against the rug.  So…he doesn’t just need a haircut…he needs a Mani/Pedi as well.

    HE SHOULD ALSO THINK ABOUT SHAVING THOSE LEGS JUST A LITTLE BIT TOO, ALTHOUGH, ONE THING’S FOR SURE…HE CAN CLIMB THE HELL OUT OF A TREE

    7:42:58 A.M. – Michael Riedel weighs in on the new Steve Jobs biopic, and he LOVES it, saying that the Apple Founder was extremely calculating and vengeful, so…he could relate.  In fact, it’s also the reason why Riedel will always survive a Shark Attack.  Professional Courtesy.

    FIRST HE WRITES A BOOK…THEN HE MAKES A MOVIE

    7:44:08 A.M. – Deirdre believes Miley Cyrus is in need of some ‘Tough Love’.  Her performance on SNL this past weekend, in which she cried…leads the D-Woman to observe that Miley is BEYOND a Hot Mess.   Molten?  Nuclear?  Doesn’t matter.  It’s emblematic of Millennials.  “This is YOUR generation, Gunz”, she admonishes the hapless loser.  Gunz says he’s not attracted to Miley…which, probably works out pretty good for Miley.  As she wouldn’t have sex with him if he had wrecking ball in his pants.

    MILEY’S TRADEMARK ‘TONGUE’ THING CAME FROM GUNZ MAKING HER FEEL NAUSEOUS ENOUGH TO THROW UP

    7:45:12 A.M. – Deirdre also takes umbrage with Cosmopolitan’s cover story, in which they allege that the Kardashians are ‘America’s First Family.’  Riedel takes exception to this, saying that Gunz’s generation is responsible for this aberration.  “You are trash, you watch trash, and you EAT trash.” Not to put too fine a point on it.

    “UM…MICHELLE?  PLEASE DON’T TELL ME THAT KANYE WEST IS MY SON IN LAW…BUT KIM’S OBVIOUSLY DONE THAT EPIC WORKOUT…”

    8:07:34 A.M. – The Punishment for Warner’s Guarantee being incorrect has been decided by the I-Man.  If he is wrong, and the Yankees win…he will have to be Gunz for an entire program.  We are tempted to call Amnesty International as this is CLEARLY ‘Cruel and Unusual Punishment.’   That is, until we realize that…it means Gunz will do the Sports that morning, and Warner will be responsible for the sound bites and inane comments about his hair…and the ladies.

    “HEY…WE’RE BALLIN’, DAWG!  COME AWNNNNN….”

    8:35:11 A.M. – We learn that author, and upcoming guest, T.J. English’s list of five favorite songs, includes a tune from Captain Beefheart, one called ‘Hard Workin’ Man’, that he did with Ry Cooder for the ‘Blue Collar’ movie soundtrack.  It sounds like he might’ve been a little inspired by Muddy Waters…in which case, they should’ve let Muddy Waters do the soundtrack…

    WHERE’S FRANK ZAPPA WHEN YOU NEED HIM?

    8:39:43 A.M. – Mr. English is on to promote his book WHERE THE BODIES WERE BURIED: WHITEY BULGER AND THE WORLD THAT MADE HIM.   He criticizes the movie about Bulger, ‘Black Mass’, saying it didn’t really capture the essence of this murderous gangster who cultivated a Robin Hood like image.  We hope that Warner, who LOVED the film, doesn’t run into English in the handicapped seats at his neighborhood theater.  Hopefully, they can settle their Cinematic Differences of Opinion in a civilized way.  Pistols at Dawn.

    Just Another 'Manic Monday'

    6:05:00 A.M. – With apologies to The Bangles, it’s a ‘Manic Monday’, as we are, once again, ‘Imus Free’.  Connell is hosting the program, sitting in the big chair, his hair looks great, he feels great, and he is in a cheerful mood.   It’s just not the same without you, I-Man.

    BACK IN THE 80’S HE HAD A COUPLE HITS

    6:08:56 A.M. – Bernard mentions that Hillary was on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and she did a Donald Trump impression.  What’s the over / under on how long before The Donald does an impression of HER?  

    “EXCUSE ME, IT’S A FANTASTIC IMPRESSION…FIRST RATE…EVEN BETTER THAN THAT WOMAN ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE…”

    6:40:27 A.M. Bo Dietl, Bo Dietl…is a gunslinger.  (December 1960 – Checker Records)   Bo’s a supporter of there being guns on College Campuses, as a deterrent to the violence that occurred last week in Oregon.  He also believes there should be an APP that would notify students in real time when there was a threat on campus.  But if they want students to use it, they better make it look like Angry Birds.

    BO MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE SOMETHING THERE…

    7:05:37 A.M. – We learn that the new leader of the Taliban, Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, was formerly Afghanistan’s Minister of Aviation…although there weren’t that many, if any, planes to minister to…he also was in charge of Afghanistan Tourism.  And we all know what a vacation paradise THAT is!

    7:15:18 A.M. – Warner reports that Hope Solo, star goalie who led the U.S. Soccer Team to the Women’s World Cup Title in July, will again face domestic violence charge after a Washington State Appeals Court reversed a lower court’s decision to dismiss a case in which she was alleged to have beaten up her half-sister and nephew.  Warner is horrified at the account of the violence, saying that, Solo, purportedly in a drunken rage, slammed her half-sister’s 17-year-old son into the…CEEEMENT.   We assume he means ‘Cement’.  Warner’s gone all Jed Clampett on us.  

    WARNER CHECKS IN ON ELLIE MAE.  OOOOH, DAWGIE!

    7:39:44 A.M. VINNIE FROM QUEENS or, as we like to call it, “How Stupid is Gunz?”  The boys discuss how stupid is the concept of playing NFL Games in Europe.  Gunz is confused.  “I thought they played in London?”   Um…yes, Gunz.  They did.   We realize you’re no Rand McNally but…buy a map, willya?

    GUNZ’S VIEW OF THE WORLD

    7:40:06 A.M. – World’s Series Predictions:  Warner: Dodgers.  Lou: Toronto.  Bernie: Mets.  Tony: St. Louis.  Connell: ABSTAINS.  Gunz, of course, picks the Yankees, who barely made the Wild Card position.  GUNZ will make the Series before the Yankees will.

    GUNZ IS A PITCHER?  WE ALWAYS ASSUMED HE WAS A CATCHER.

    7:45:16 A.M. – Our favorite part of the segment:  “Who’s the Bigger Douche?”  Jimmie Johnson’s son, @JimmieJ82 for tweeting insulting things about Jets players, Geno Smith and Antonio Cromartie, Carmelo Anthony for saying that he will still be able to play at a High Level for the next 3 to 4 years, or A-Rod popping the champagne in the Yankees Locker room after they narrowly snagged a Wild Card Playoff birth.    As far as we’re concerned?  Jump Ball.  But at least Jimmie Johnson Junior didn’t Tweet pictures of himself in a Bathtub like his father did in the Cialis Commercial.

    HASHTAG: #ITHINKIAMGOINGTOTHROWUP

    YEAH, WE’D PRETTY MUCH CALL THIS A ‘WILD CARD’ TOO

    8:07:34 A.M. – A couple of disturbing stories are reported; one, that of a Greek Orthodox Priest who made kinky foot fetish sex tapes with the much younger woman who was the principal at the Parochial School in his Parish.  

    “HEY PADRE, ANY CHANCE I COULD GET IN ON A LITTLE OF THAT ACTION?”

    8:08:04 A.M. – As if that wasn’t twisted enough, some of the tapes involved the young woman sitting on a banana bread loaf wrapped in cellophane until it was flattened, while donning black stiletto heels and lingerie.   Now THAT’S disgusting.       A waste of a perfectly good loaf of Banana Bread.    

    THAT’S NOT JUST KINKY…THAT’S SICK

    8:21:11 A.M. – Another troubling report…of a New Jersey Priest pointing a functioning, Civil War-Style Musket at an 8 Year old boy, because the boy was a fan of the Dallas Cowboys.  Yet another reason why, if you’re an 8-year-old boy, you don’t want to get called into the Rectory.

     

    THE RIGHT FOR PRIESTS TO BEAR ARMS…

    8:39:43 A.M. – Rich Edson, the D.C. based correspondent for the Fox News Channel…he’s on the Big Boy Network, not the Fox Business Channel.  Rich, apparently, Rich won the 2010 D.C.’s Funniest Journalist Standup Comedy Competition.   

      

    “SO…RUPERT MURDOCH WALKS INTO A BAR…AND HE BUYS IT…”
