Oh Yeah, That’s A Healthy Handful

Wednesdays we shine a light on That Guy, that guy — or girl — that does something douchey and either doesn’t realize it or doesn’t apologize for it. Today Jason called out Reviews The Movie Without Seeing It Guy. After eight months, Jason finally got around to seeing Drive yesterday. Deb had told him he wouldn’t like it, but he actually really enjoyed it. The two of them were having a nice, intelligent debate about the movie, when Nick chimed in and started telling Jason why he was wrong. After five minutes of arguing with him, he says, “Well I’ve never seen the movie.” Two thumbs down to That Guy.
YOU AUTO-COMPLETE ME:
Google will suggest some interesting things when you're searching, and we try to guess what it's going to auto-complete with a given word or phrase. The first word was Bob, Deb guessed Schneider and Jason crossed out Bullock Museum at the last minute and guessed Costas. Deb got a quarter point, but the correct answer was Bob Bullock Museum. Always go with your first brain, Jason! Jason got a quarter point for Louis C.K. and neither got a point for South …west Airlines. Deb always complains to Alex about the words being too long, so he gave them the letter ‘C.’ Unsurprisingly, neither got points for Craigslist. Jason got another quarter point for Who will be my… valentine, to take the win in perhaps the least impressive game of You Auto-complete Me ever.
RESTORA IN STUDIO:
Dr. Reid and Dr. Gordon from Restora Austin were in studio this morning to answer questions about plastic surgery procedures. Before they could answer anything else, Jason wanted to know, why do they measure breast implants in cc’s? Medicine uses the metric system and cc is short for ‘cubic centimeter,’ which is the same as milliliter. They thought Deb would have known that, since she’s European. Caller Lana wanted to know if it’s safer to get laser-assisted liposuction or regular lipo on her neck and chin. Both of the doctors agreed it’s better to stick with regular lipo. While the laser treatment will surely be the way of the future, right now their marketing efforts are ahead of the technology.
JUSTICE FOR CISCO:
Michael Paxton, the owner of Cisco — the dog fatally shot by an APD officer on Saturday while responding to a call at the wrong house — was in studio this morning. Through his terrible situation, he’s been able to turn it into something positive and is raising awareness through the press he’s received and his Facebook page Justice for Coco, which has more than 60 thousand likes. Michael hopes to see change in the way APD trains their officers and start to incorporate how to better handle situations with animals. Like the page on Facebook to stay up to date with news.
BLUFF JASON DICK:
Jason is a renowned poker expert, or is just a degenerate gambler, whichever way you choose to look at it. Either way, he says he is unbluffable, and he is putting it to the test by having listeners try to bluff him in order to win one of four trips to Vegas for Cinco de Mayo. Hunter said he looks like Keith Stone and is stopped for autographs all the time or he spent two nights in jail in high school. Jason called his bluff, and said he does in fact look like Keith Stone. Jen said she’s a single girl and has only been to Vegas once, and Jason called her bluff saying she’s not really a single girl. Has Brandon has worked at Time Warner Cable for the last night years or did he quit his job at 28? He bluffed Jason — he really did quit his job. Jason said Jenna does not have a deranged cat, but did in fact knock out her front tooth, which was wrong. But hey, at least a girl finally qualified for the trip.
LOVE-A-BULL PET OF THE WEEK:

CAKE, CAKE, CAKE, GIMME CAKE:
Our friends over at Sullivan's Steakhouse brought us a massive amount of food today because they've got a cake extravaganza going on all month long. That means specials on Steak and (Crab) Cake for you, as well as a selection of cakes on the sweeter side. More details at sullivansteakhouse.com.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her questions about random topics, then making fun of her when she doesn’t know the answers. Today she had Drive review, other Ryan Gosling movie review or a truck review. “This not only approaches a level of shamelessness you have to see to disbelieve, it does it in a matter that is both crass and inept.” Deb knew it was from another Ryan Gosling movie, The Notebook. Deb also knew “a perfect fit for weekend warriors” was from a truck review. “This is pedal to the metal stuff, don’t get behind the wheel unless you can take the rush.” She thinks whoever wrote that should punch themselves in the face, but she knew it was from a Drive review.
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 Deb called Rivard Fine Jewelry in Lexington, Kentucky, and spoke to Pat. Deb said she’s looking for a birthday gift for a friend and was thinking about getting her a letter pendant. What kind of letter does she want for her friend? Oh, probably one from the alphabet. Well with that sass, no wonder she got buttslammed.
In an unaired clip from Khloe and Lamar, Kim Kardashian said she should run for mayor of Glendale.
The NFL announced their 2012 schedule last night with an accompanying three-hour show. We already knew the season is starting September 5, Cowboys at Giants, but now that their whole schedule is out and Jason has pored over it, he’s predicting the Cowboys will go 16-0.
