We’re back to “normal” this week. At least as normal as things really get around here. I’ve been spending a lot of time working on building the website and the patreon for the show. Of course that means I haven’t been nearly as productive as I’d have liked to have been. But we did get a new Shark. That’s exciting right? The news this week gets us back to those standard stories of drugs, bad judgement, and plain old stupidity. The “Jackass of The Week” puts a new twist on the old excuse, “it’s not mine.” Finally, in Recommended Listening, I’m getting back to guests from the Livestream For The Cure with another Phoenix based show: BSP: The Idio[t]Syncracy Files.
Doing a segment shuffle this week. I decide to lead with the news, including: a brave proctologist, an artist’s prank that people are still falling for, and a guy who wants a Masters Degree without any of the work. Then I go on a bit of a rant about my taste in alcohol, or more accurately why is it that people give me crap over not really drinking and never doing drugs. Finally, I wrap things up with A-hole number 6 (or is it 7?) Chris the Mole Man from The Couch Potato Files.
A proctologist gave himself a colonoscopy to understand the pain he was inflicting on his patients. I’ve never had one, but I’ve been told having a hose shoved up your backside with a camera on it, isn’t the most pleasant thing in the world.
A man paid $8000 so he could have a Master’s Degree that used his life experience to determine that he earned the degree instead of actually studying or attending classes or taking tests. Yet he was surprised to find out it was a fake degree.
The Couch Potato Files
“Mysteries, conspiracies, weird history and the unexplained a new topic each Friday so join me, on the couch crack open a beer and maybe have a few laughs as we explore the weird and strange of the Couch Potato Files. Call and leave a voicemail at 559-425-8621 would love to hear from you.”
Part of my job as the daytime parent at home is going to school functions. Most annoying of these is parent/teacher conferences. Maybe I’m a little harsh on them, but I’ll leave that for you to decide. In the News: Hurricane Irma hitting Florida brought out all sorts of crazies #BecauseFlorida. Plus, a few really dumb thieves, a jackass who wants to marry his computer, and a pizza guy who may be my new spirit animal on “The Pizza Podcast.”
