Welcome to the weekend, the month of March, and a brand new Podcast - my 75th! Today Jackie re-joins me at my dining room table (along with my wife Gail!) for a look at what’s up in the news. And when it comes to topics, our cups definitely runneth over… (And I’m not just talking about the “We Saw Your Boobs” song and dance number delivered by Seth MacFarlane at the Oscars.)
There’s the Pope’s official retirement (Rumor has it he was wearing Golf shoes under his robe when he got on the helicopter) to the hot new word in Washington: “Sequester”. (Apparently it’s not just for Jury’s anymore).
We also offer up our theories on why the US Postal Service is planning a line of “Postal Wear” for purchase by the general public. (Jackie and Gail give the feminine take, while I offer up the “Mail” opinion.)
And you won’t want to miss our in-depth coverage of former Piston “Bad-Boy” Dennis Rodman’s trip to hang out in North Korea with Kim Jung Un to help bring “peace” between our two nations. Relations between the two countries might still be strained… but apparently Dennis has developed “feelings” for Kim Jong Un and actually “Loves the guy!!!” (Hey…it’s probably less dangerous to his health than dating Madonna was).
We’ll also tell you about a new scientific theory that claims 72 is the new 30, explain why Robin is no longer having a “gay old time” with Batman, and - as we always somehow manage to do - reveal more little-known facts about Hitler. Trust me, it’s a ball!
So sit back, and join us as we “March” towards Spring with a “Pope-Pourri” of topics in Podcast #75!
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here with my regular blog on Monday!
