I heard this story simply too crazy to make up: a mayor was killed while still in office. Not even Diamond Joe Quimby managed to make that happen during his 26+ years as mayor of Springfield. But this was no cartoon violence. This mayor was gunned down the past week. And I was totally shocked when I heard how he was killed.
Got a lot of great calls coming in for this one. A cool dude off the California coast calls me out on my “autism calls vaccine” crap. Which I proudly defend.
A patriot-ized Canadian (guy from Alberta now living in Colorado) calls in to complain about the United States. Boo! USA! USA! USA! But yeah, I totally agree with him that it stinks having to pay $200 bucks to get your crap back into Canada after bringing it here to the states for free. I call him out on his un-Americanism. USA! USA! USA! (Sean Hannity is so proud right now).
So any swear words start with the letter ‘Z’ or not? I ask, because a caller from L.A. phones to try me on my “no saying F-F-F-G-G-G-H-H-H-A-A-A-S-S-S words” policy.
