00 Hello! Welcome in to NeverNotFunny!

Jimmy couldn’t find parking because of a weirdly parked motorcycle.

It is illegal to park a motorcycle on the sidewalk except in emergency situations or to comply with police orders. Any lights, mirrors, or other devices on the motorcycle cannot extend more than 10 inches over the sidewalk.

Lots of famous motorcycle entrances.


Rainy days in LA.

Jimmy talks about Oliver doing a James Austin Johnson Trump impression.

10 – The stylist might be a new listener for us though!

Matt wants to talk about haircuts. Charlie likes to keep his long. Matt wonders when the long hair phase will end.

Sunshine Day vs Daydream Believer

The name of the Brady kids’ singing group was normally the Brady Six. However, in The Brady Bunch: Amateur Nite (1973), they were known as “The Silver Platters.” In the cartoon spin-off The Brady Kids (1972) they performed a song each episode as “The Brady Kids” (the name adorning the drum in an homage to The Beatles).
