I’m Being Very Normal Right Now

Nick is outraged. He’s been a victim of some inter-office theft and it’s started some beef with some people. He brought a box of pizza to work the other day and put it in the fridge in the break room. When he came into work yesterday morning, there was a lone slice of pizza on a napkin on top of the microwave, and his box was gone. This really pissed him off, so he wrote on the napkin, “Really?” and left it there. This angered someone else in the office, who sent a company-wide email about how he should have thrown it out because it was gross. So now he has to clean up after the person who ate his pizza? You shouldn’t steal someone else’s food because that’s just not cool, but if you’re going to do it, make sure it’s not Nick’s.
Jason was very excited to have Vanilla Ice on the phone this morning because he’s been a fan of his for a long time. So big of a fan, in fact, that he’s rapped with him four times, an accomplishment that he loves to talk about. Deb wanted to know if Vanilla Ice remembered him, and after Jason told him each of the occasions, he actually did remember him! That probably made Jason’s dreams come true. Vanilla Ice is the star and host of The Vanilla Ice Project, the highest-rated show on the DIY network, which follows him doing various home improvement projects. He’s also starring in the new Adam Sandler movie “That’s My Boy” as himself.
Deb was invited to two different Kentucky Derby parties this weekend, and she declined because she’s against horse racing. But is she being dumb? Jason think it’s the same as her going to a bbq — she doesn’t eat meat but she still goes to hang out with friends. Ok, but if she goes, does she have to dress up? Maybe she’ll dress up as a horse instead.
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 Asks For Your Girl’s Number Right In Front Of You Guy. Last night, Jason was out with a girl and he wouldn’t necessarily call it a date, but there was no reason for anyone who saw them together to think they weren’t dating, he says. They were talking to another guy, and then as they were walking away, he stopped and asked her for her number — and she gave it to him. We think Jason is misdirecting his anger, but he thinks that goes against the dude code to do that while she was with another guy. Sounds like Jason just got buttslammed.
YOU AUTO-COMPLETE ME:
Google will suggest some interesting thing when you’re searching, and we play a game where we try and guess what it’s going to auto-complete with a given word or phrase. The game got off to a rough start with neither of them getting points for Rob or Van, but they each got quarter points for Vanilla Ice. Jason got another quarter point for Ice Cube, but neither got points for “White rappers are — better.” Seems like maybe that game might have had a theme or something.
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 she called Vans Auto in Wisconsin. Deb asked if they had jumper cables that she could keep in her car, but those aren’t the kind of auto parts they carry. Well, do they have any window knob thingies for her ’68 Wildcat? Because she thinks she could use one of those. They might have a window crank, but they don’t have any love for her.
PET OF THE WEEK:
Every week we feature a lovely adoptable dog. This week we're looking for a home for Billie. She's a very sweet puppy whose jaw and pelvis were broken. She’s having surgery on her pelvis and has already had surgery on her jaw, which will be wired shut for 6 weeks while it heals. If you’re interested in adopting Billie, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. While you’re at it go to Love-A-Bull and take a look, so we can give some other pups great new homes too.
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 questions about people pulled on-stage at concerts. Courtney Cox got her big break by playing a woman pulled on stage for what artist? Deb knew it was Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark.” She did not know that Adam Bevell was pulled on stage by Bono at a U2 concert last year to play guitar, which was especially notable because he was blind.
Jessica Simpson finally gave birth yesterday to a 9 lb, 13 oz baby girl they named Maxwell Drew Johnson.
Roger Clemens is on trial for perjury again and former teammate Andy Pettite testified yesterday, saying "Roger had mentioned to me that he had taken HGH and that it could help with recovery, and that's really all I remember about the conversation."
