Show notes by Darryl Asher
First usage: Hello everybody and indeed, welcome to Never Not Funny
Jimmy insists that they are coming to us live
South of Hollywood, north of dicey
Mike says “Hello America” despite the international audience
Are Australians and / or the cast of Lost listening?
Greg “The Shark” Norman may be a fan
Jimmy is against midget bowling
You remember Pledging Frats?
Mike invents a “widget arm” in his mind
Matt wonders if there will be balloons when they hit their 100th “You remember ______, they opened up for _______”
Jimmy first said it in the cafeteria line to his friend Paul Boyev: “You remember Choice of Soups, they opened up for Quiet Riot”
Matt: Midget Bowling for Soup
Bowling for Soup’s Almost is a very hook-y song
Jimmy loved The Verve Pipe’s The Freshmen
Jimmy bought the cassingle, but when he bought the CD he hated it so much he threw it out the window of his car
What was the last cassingle?
Jimmy wonders why he has ANYTHING in his Chicago collection
Jimmy has a tin-ear, but pronounces it “tin air.” His pronounciation of “ear” will be very troublesome when the podcast joins Earwolf / Airwolf.
You remember Tin Air. They opened for Rose Royce.
Jimmy was greeted this morning by Jehovah’s Witnesses (or maybe Seventh Day Adventists) knocking on his door
After shooing them away from his door, Jimmy put his slippers on and ran after them to apologize
Opening montage quote: “You are a haunted house”
Jimmy’s two tasks when on the road: haircut and fund-raising carwash
Church car wash fundraiser was a ruse to evangelize
“You can pray my car never gets dirty again.”
Jimmy had to drive back and apologize for his smartass comment
Jimmy called Sean “Wild Child” Hamilton, local Chicago B96 DJ on the air to insult him; he called back to apologize and request a Duran Duran song
Jimmy and Paul Boyev got scolded at Chicagofest by a radio DJ for heckling during his live remote
Matt and his friends mocked a younger kid who would hold hands with other guys
The kid’s dad was Matt’s dentist, so he was questioned about it during a dental exam (which reminds me of the famous scene from Marathon Man)
More about this morning: Jimmy got a voicemail from Mike asking if he wanted a banana
Jimmy is allergic to bananas which he discovered on a flight
Mike actually was asking if he HAD a banana, so he could make a protien shake
Mike loves the Bullet blender infomercial
Mike calls Jimmy late at night to tell him the Bullet show or something interesting on cable access
Would you buy a banana from 7-11?
Running down the 7-11 food choices
The 7-11 food lab is run by a Josef Mengele type
As a kid, Matt made toasted bread balls with sour cream
Matt has had some good food invention ideas, but he can’t think of any right now
Hamburger on Krispy Creme donuts is a real thing that Mike used to talk about as a joke
Mike says it sounds disgusting but tastes delicious
Crazy fast foods
Jimmy just got a ticket because of street cleaning
Pat Francis will be on an episode soon
Writing checks is a strange antiquated payment method
Left handed Matt was forced into ambidextrosity when his left arm was broken
Matt comes out smelling like a rose every show; or not
Something special this episode: First 5 emails get a Pompous Clown CD
Onnnn Never Not Funny!
