To begin, Adam discusses why he doesn’t like the ACLU, or any other group ‘that started with the best of intentions and went a little nutty.’ He also reviews the John Cusack film 2012, and wonders why it had to be so preachy. Later in the discussion, Teresa mentions Gilligan’s Island, ‘a celebration of the intellect.’ Adam applauds the show for its cunning use of hammock humor.
The first part of the news revolves around the Top 5 Mel Gibson Mockeries. They listen to the Mel Gibson-Miss Piggy mash-up, and Adam says that anyone with a computer and the Internet can make something, so this will never end. Adam recalls the joys of yelling at a coworker, and says that we should stop focusing on Mel Gibson yelling, and instead focus on whether or not he actually did anything to physically harm anyone. Other news stories deal with Rachel Uchitel’s involvement on Celebrity Rehab, and Whoopi Goldberg embarrassing herself on The View.
Teresa jumps into another bestiality story, this time about a guy who told the vet he had relations with his dog. Now he’s facing charges, and lawyers say he was just making a joke. Teresa says it’s like joking about a bomb at the airport—you just don’t do it. Something else you shouldn’t do is lie when you’re not really sick. In this case, a former Teacher of the Year nominee is facing felony charges after lying about having an inoperable brain tumor. Make A Wish got involved, and Adam reveals what his dream would be.
Everyone plays a round of ‘Will Angie Eat It?’ a game left over from the radio show, where five foods are listed off, and everyone has to guess if producer Angie would actually eat it. All of the foods are absolutely delicious by most people’s standards, but Adam points out that Angie is especially picky and has ‘wild inconsistencies’ in her preferences.
And speaking of food, today’s guests are two representatives of the current LA Food Truck war going on in the southland. Forget the roach coaches you grew up with, now all the food trucks are selling high-end boutique stuff. The parking space availability is supposedly upsetting the local restaurants on Wilshire Blvd., but additionally they’re quite concerned with the competition. A local politician has taken to the cause, trying to ban the trucks from parking in the area. Guests Natasha and Matt see it as a restriction against the people’s right to compete.
Adam goes on a major rant about the politicians who are currently destroying the city of Los Angeles. As he puts it, ‘Vote these fucking idiots out.’ He also gets incredibly angry about stupid laws like one hour parking, and how ‘the one thing [the city] actually pulls off is the one thing that removes money from your wallet.’ Teresa agrees that she doesn’t understand the other side of the story, but we’re not hearing from them anyway. Matt talks more about the fight against the tyranny of freedom and ice cream, and Natasha talks about her made-to-order deluxe ice cream sandwiches.
