Jason and Deb
James Moody from Fun Fun Fun Fest stopped by the studio today without his signature hat look to give us some details about the upcoming festivities. The Aqua Olympics are going to be held this weekend as a precursor to the Fest. 101X’s own Trevin will be MCing the event along with several other Austin celebrities as the participants joust, tug, and paddle board their way to victory. Jason’s not a fan of the paddleboard discrimination against people more his size, but those wishing to participate in the events can sign up over here for a chance at some Fun Fun Fun Fest tickets.
DUMB QUESTION AMNESTY:
If you want to ask a question without fear of people laughing, all you have to do is put “Dumb Question Amnesty” in front of it. Today Deb poised a question that has been plaguing all of us around Austin: what’s the deal with the mosquitoes lately? Deb’s not a fan of bug spray (who is?), so she’s seeking an explanation as to why they’re all over the place. A “no mosquitoes” sign may not be the answer we’re looking for, but any advice we can get would be great to avoid the little bloodsuckers.
Jason wanted to dish out some Twitter etiquette, mainly how many tweets one should tweet a day, which according to him is two. Deb’s recent live-tweet of her Brazilian wax sparked Jason’s hatred of over-tweeters, but more specifically our Chief of Police is what’s causing the beef. It was the Chief’s birthday recently and poor Jason’s Twitter feed was flooded with the Chief’s own retweets of others wishing him a happy birthday. Jason’s really only worried about the Chief’s image on social media. Just please don’t come knocking, Mr. Chief - the rest of us don't mind.
C OF THE WEEK:
Fridays Deb calls the one person who’s wronged her the most that week the C Word – the worst word in the world, although she usually uses it jovially. This week Deb’s ditching the friendly nature of her name-calling for something that’s really bugging her. Deb sent a really nice heart-felt email to our producers Nick and Alex. It was really sweet, but no one even took the time to respond to the email! Alex dished out some good deed etiquette, but Deb was not having it. So Alex and Nick, you’re this week’s misguided C of the Week.
ON AGAIN, OFF AGAIN:
Producer Nick is getting drug tested today after weeks of being totally sober. He’s finally going to be able to get back to his other substances, which he’s very excited about. Despite his good feelings of being off, Nick still has a substance abuse problem with Jason Dick. He’s going to be off the Jason Dick for a bit while they’re on vacation, but we’re a little worried there may be an overdose when everyone’s back. We all agree that this whole story has been drug out.
PET OF THE WEEK:
We're all about supporting animal charities and bringing you the happiness of animals in your own home. So you should check out our friends at Love-A-Bull, who are currently looking for a home for Kit. She's low-key, but she'll perk up to play some softball, Give Kit and the other adopt-a-bulls a look here.
DENNIS DE LA PENA:
Fridays we talk to a real sports expert, Dennis de la Pena from Fox 7 Sports. How about those 21st ranked longhorns? The UT football has gone a solid several days without suspending anyone, but Dennis addressed the more important aspect of the (not so) possible San Antonio Raiders. Dennis sees San Antonio as a common bargaining chip without any real settlement. As far as MLB is concerned, Dennis was amazed at the quick transition the Red Socks are going through with the recent trade deadline. Check Dennis out covering some international soccer this weekend on Fox.
I LOVE YOU CALL:
At 8:50 Deb calls a random business and tries to get the person answering the phone to say, “I love you.” Today we called a restaurant called Dumplin's in Kentucky. Surprisingly they have a lovely variety of dumplings that could tantalize Deb’s made-up family. However, we’re afraid those Kentuckians may soon catch on to Deb’s game with all the calls targeted there recently. Regardless, the woman answering the call gave Deb a quick “Love ya” with a swift hang-up, so we’ll call this one successful I guess.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her quiz questions, then laughing when she doesn’t know the answers. Today we quizzed our DJ darling about presidential pets, as her recent obsession with Bobama should have her guessing correctly. Deb did not disappoint! She combined her knowledge of puppies and "wire fences" to determine that LBJ once picked up his dogs by their ears. Dog-gone it our host sure is smart.
Russia is under fire again for Vladimir Putin’s anti-homosexual policy banning anyone from discussing “non-traditional sexual relations” to minors. He was however Put-in his place by designer Fernando Sosa via his Vladimir Putin butt-plug figurine. Despite Putin’s unreliable bad-assery, you could say Sosa really stuck it to him.
A Floridian police detective tested positive during a random drug test for cocaine use. The detective argued that a friend gave him some homemade voodoo sex cream that may or may not have cocaine in it. The police force believed his story and obliged his plea, and the man is now back solving crimes and receiving back pay for the time he was suspended.
A diner in Salem is offering a discount of 15% for a pair of customers that prayed in public before their meal. Deb’s okay with the praying but requires a quick heads-up before she can start digging in.
The Boston Red Sox (champions of the baseball world according to Jason) traded several of their Johns to different teams. Despite Boston being out of the playoffs, they’re slowly building for the future, much like we would if we could lend out Jason for a few months.
Ray Rice released a statement formally apologizing about the incident regarding domestic abuse. Rice seemed genuinely sincere but would not directly address what exactly happened. He was very adamant that the situation was entirely his fault.
