But if you insist on wearing it anyway, you can suit up & bring your mobile home to a swingers trailer park in Louisiana. "Pancho Guero", my Insane FL Nephew, also tells about how an adult sex toy can become weaponized against an armed robber. Plus, he has a story of another stupid FL man at the Jacksonville Zoo.

A little "Afternoon Delight" on Spring Break
Florida is overrun with college-agers on Spring Break, but no one was prepared for a 40-something couple to join in the sex-capades. Monopoly goes "woke" after Hasbro de-gendered Mr. Potato Head. My "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero", who would love space travel, isn't so gung-ho about gathering over 6 million sperm & egg samples from all the Earth's species to put on a "Noah's Ark to the moon.

Self-Fondling Pickle Perverts
Imagine all the things one can do with a pickle. The police found one example. Maybe it was due to the pandemic & everyone having so much alone time on their hands, their hands were needing something to keep busy.

Le Freak Le Pew: The Skunk In The Woodpile
Folks had a "Freak Out" moment over a 1945 era cartoon character that's now being tied to "rape culture". A 1970s disco hit played on a loop caused some roommates to "Freak Out" & get violent. Cheeto dust betrayed a burglar, & a pastor stopped preachin' & started meddlin' when he told women how to behave in his sermon. Plus, not only are we blurring the lines when it comes to public restrooms & changing areas...but now it's including clothing departments.

When Using An Outhouse Bites You In The Butt

Stressed From Stupidity? Crank Up The 80s Tunes!
Those Awesome 80s with their mullets will kill any stress you have. That's according to scientific research! We have not heard the last from the Gorilla Glue Girl because now that she's glue-free, she's selling merch from her mistake! Think that's stupid? Not so fast... the viral "Cat Lawyer" is doing the same thing. If you're a "Karen" & need therapy, now you have your very own support group. Would a guy steal an engagement ring from the girl he's been dating to give to the OTHER girl he's been dating? Of course he would, if he were stupid! But those women could read his mind. One guy thought his grandpa rocked so good.. .he used his bones to make a guitar so he could let him keep on rockin'!

Stupidity Ensues When Your Hair & Your Zoom Filter Are Stuck
A smorgasbord of stupidity is served up when a gal thinks she can substitute GORILLA GLUE for hairspray & an attorney finds his ZOOM kitten filter is glued to his face. https://youtu.be/qcnnI6HD6DU Then we may have an accidental invention for edible Air Pods after a man in MA discovers one was lodged in his esophagus as he slept. Your dentist may discover more about your intimate life when they're working on your mouth. My "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero" discovered while watching the Super Bowl that there are some phrases the announcers use that COULD have more than one meaning if your mind ever "goes there". And throw out that plunger if you've ever plugged up the commode after laying a loaf. This new "invention" CUTS right through the problem!

The Skunks Stole The GameStop Stock & Other Annoying Sounds
We all got a primer on hedge fund investing from the peanut gallery when the "little guy" stuck it to the "big guy" on Wall Street. If your eyeballs are still stuck in the top of your head, my "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero" will break it down for you this week. Punxsutawney Phil's prediction may be campy, but it's at least consistent...which is something that that rodent on Staten Island can't claim. If you need a proven method on how to stop a thief, one woman may have the answer with the "service" she provided while the cops were called. What would you think the most annoying sound would be to most humans? I'll "regurgitate" the answer. While everyone got a good laugh over Bernie Sanders in his mittens, there was ONE person who's sense of humor didn't go that deep. And she took the privilege to opine about it in an editorial to the local paper calling it "white privilege", "male privilege", & "class privilege". I have the privilege to tell you about her stupid complaint.

Everything's Comin' Up Bernie
So will Bernie Sanders see his shadow & give us 6 more weeks of stupid memes? Those #BernieMemes sure brought a small bit of happiness but can money buy more? Apparently so. But it couldn't buy a parole for Joe Exotic...he was just too "gay" for Big D. It was a big day for paleontology if your thing is dino butts & it also appears the Ouija Board is soon to be "old skool" if you want to make contact with the dead. Microsoft is about to bring grandma back from the grave. More naked Florida men stealing cars as my "Insane FL Nephew", "Pacho Guero" reveals in the case where the car that was stolen was a police cruiser. And he's has the bizarre story of the crazy Mexican woman who repeatedly stabbed her husband for scrolling through photos of a sexy young female... which turned out to be HER from much older pictures.

Make Money Doing Nothing-Or Sell Foot Photos for Fetish Folks
When a guy can make money for doing nothing at all or for supplying folks with foot fetishes with photos of his feet, I've realized that I'm in the wrong vocation. You know that times are rough when Satan's house is no longer considered safe...like when a "Halloween House owned by the Church of Satan was destroyed by an arsonist. There'll be no gathering at Gobler's Knob for Groundhog Day in PA this year. But how would you like for the Groundhog to make a CAMEO for you? it can happen for a cool $80...but there'll be no prediction whether or not you'll see your shadow. My "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero" has the tale of a spurned female who got even with her cheating boyfriend using LOTS of glitter. And he compares his butt with Captain America & Falcon to see who's is better.

That's One Dilly Of A "Diller", Man!
Denmark has a new children's show for 4-8 year-olds about a man with a "wild willy". Don't worry... an "expert" says kids thinks topics about genitals is "funny". WHO WOULDN'T??? If you're looking to get rid of your Christmas tree, the FIREPLACE is not a wise decision to use in the effort...as one man found out the hard way. Another man realized how complicated it was to set a house on fire when he set HIMSELF on fire trying. And we have a lot of folks this week getting naked while committing crimes. Is there something in the water?? Plus, my "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero" found there is now ice cream for dogs... from Ben & Jerry's...and a swingers party gets busted by the cops who were mistaken as strippers for the party. And we still haven't finished the 1st month of the year, yet.

Forever & Ever Amen (And Awoman)
When prayers offered as a "pun" in the chambers of Government to open a legislative session, we've stooped to a new low of stupidity. And this is how 2021 was ushered in. I've got a piece of my mind to dish out about the Capitol breach that happened in the year's inaugural week. And all stupidity broke out with the large & powerful social media giants removing users (including the US President) from its platforms, large & powerful companies who control what apps are available from their app stores removing apps from smaller, independent companies, & expectations at an all-time low even as we put a crappy year behind us. 2021 has already started off as the year of stupidity. Pancho Guero, my "Insane FL Nephew" also spells out ALL 37 rules that a "bridezilla" made her bridal party sign before they were permitted to be in her wedding & reads the predictions for this year made by a woman who uses asparagus to see into the future. And we're not even half-way through the first month. Buckle your seat belts, folks.

Final News & A Recap Of A Stupid Year
I wanted to get in one last podcast of 2020 so I'm publishing this one early on New Year's Eve from my Insane FL Nephew's home in Jacksonville, FL once again! However, "Pancho Guero" won't be joining me this time because he is caught up in a massive "end of the year gaming championship" with our New Year's Eve guests who are here to wave goodbye to 2020. The lamb is cooking in the oven & the festivities are about to begin, as you may hear in the background with the wails & shouts from the game night in the next room! But I was able to scrap together the last few fragments of stupidity as well as bring back some of the more memorable stupid stunts from this insane year. Now we await what comes in 2021 to see of we can play "Can You Top THIS" in my stupid world.

Tom Cruise Crazy COVID Rant & A Constipated Mummy
Tom Cruise went on a stupid hissy fit over COVID safety protocols. A poor mummy in TX was exhumed & was found to have died from constipation from eating too many grasshoppers. A special on-location recording of the podcast this week from the shade of the Sunshine Tree I am with my "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero" from his home to record this week's episode!

Sporting The WRONG "Goods" at Dick's & The FL Christmas Coon
It was only a matter of time before some man decides to go in, sporting his "goods", at a Dick's. You know... the SPORTING GOODS store. One FL woman discovered she had a "coon" dog when her pet went after one at the top of her Christmas tree. Before it ended, the Christmas coon was swinging from the chandelier. Some unfortunate folks were subjected to some radical mood swings when their depression meds were mixed with pills to treat ED. Would you tattoo one of your twin babies so you could tell them apart? One mom did ...for all the right reasons. Can you trust your dating app after it finds your SIBLING as the one who is a "perfect match" for you? My "Insane FL Nephew", "Pancho Guero" gives advice on whether the whole torturous ordeal of "the talk" about the "birds & the bees" is even worth the effort. We have one "Genius" who wanted to continue getting her partner's Social Security checks after he had deceased. So she stuffed his lifeless body into a trash can.

Inappropriate Christmas Cookies & Seeing Too Much of Grandma
Target may have a "phallic fallacy" with their Christmas cookies being sold this year. I'll try to warn you less you embarrass yourself if you bring some to your Christmas party. And pumpkin spice season is about over, but not before we get pumpkin spice BOLOGNA! And speaking of baloney, try convincing your boss that daydreaming is actually good for you--and the company. Good luck with that. One grandma is having to explain to her granddaughter, who is "unable to function", after she sent a little too much of herself in a picture that she accidentally sent from her phone.. Everyone else got tickled about it... But you can be tickled--for a fee--if you go to a new "Tickle Bar". But it's not what you may think. There's a good reason to stay away from gas station sushi....especially if it's 5 days old, as one woman found out the hard way. "Pancho Guero", my "Insane FL Nephew" has a theory about aliens (of the outer space kind) & recalls how one bumbling late night TV host tried to get a former President to admit to their existence. Plus, we may not need the Grinch to steal Christmas as long as one stupid Santa keeps killing little boys' dreams.

A Monolithic Week Of Stupidity
Did the ghost of Stanley Kubric just reveal itself by reappearing through monoliths all over the globe? it's only fitting something this stupid would happen in 2020. Microsoft now has software that can tell your boss when you're bored with his Zoom meeting. I'll also tell you how we celebrated a pandemic Thanksgiving, including how one man's 18 year old tradition on turkey thawing. Of course it should also be obvious what the word of the year is for 2020--with Merriam-Webster & Dictionary.com both in agreement. Do you think 2021 will be better than this year? Well, about 9% of folks would disagree with you. I also found a Thai guy who loves gaming & tried to convince his non-gaming wife his PS5 was an AIR PURIFIER so he could sneak in a game or two. Well, she found out. And I'll get you up to speed on the Insane Week of news & you'll meet more "geniuses", including 2 overweight, bald guys who got into a grapple at a Wawa--where one threw the punches & the other dropped his drawers.

Narcissistic Moms & In-N-Out Burger Brawls
You'll find out if your Mom displays the 5 signs that she's really a narcissist. You'll also find out that it's not what size matters, but WHAT size matters. Also, a Belgian town has the most popular Christmas lights...for ALL the WRONG reasons. Plus a customer waiting in line for a grand opening of an In-N-Out Burger joint got "pantsed" during a knock-down/drag-out. My Insane FL Nephew, Pancho Guero, provides advice on how to overcome nightmares from your significant other's apartment & fills us in on Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols who is flea-bitten--ON his "sex pistol". More insanity as I go through the rundown of our Insane Week In Review & we have more Genius Awards to hand out to a 14-y/o boy from NE who led police on a high speed chase topping 125mph & to a FL man who was arrested after throwing 2 naked women out of his apartment because he didn't want a threesome.

Waffle House Beer, Stuffing-Themed Formal Wear, & Bathroom Humor
Imagine a Thanksgiving holiday that would go something like this: Serving guests a 2 pound Twinkie while wearing stuffing-themed formal wear with bathroom humor as table-side discussions. Sounds pretty stupid, right? Not if it's 2020. It's also been a rotten year for "Karens" trying to use dating apps & for any form of civility between liberals & conservatives. It has provided some inspiration for a new sitcom that's slated to debut in 2021. Would you pay almost $2 million for a pigeon? Or would you wrap your holiday gifts in sausage-smelling paper? As if we needed any more bad luck, 2020 just made it through its second "Friday the 13th". Did it make you more superstitious?

Facebook's Free Speech Flight & Progressive's Turkey Insurance
There's been an "exodus" of sorts as mostly Conservatives have been flocking from Facebook to other "free-speech"-friendly platforms. The pandemic has forced many to learn how to cook & it will soon include a turkey for Thanksgiving. But thanks to "Flo", you can insure your bird against any boo-boo's. If you're really wanted to know what your cat's been meowing to say to you, now there's a app for that. My "Insane Florida Nephew", Pancho Guero, details the new "Stand Your Ground" law that puts looters in your cross hairs & how 1/5 of us choose to talk of sexual issues with our MOMs! The Insane Week In Review covers ESD: Election Stress Disorder, a "Witches" apology from Warner Bros., a Russian self-driving truck that stops for pedestrians, a maniacal laugh by a popular televangelist who mocked Joe Biden for thinking he won the Election, and more. My cup of stupidity is running over.

Emotional Support Canadians For Stressed Out Americans
It's been a rough year for everyone & Americans especially who suffer from Election Stress Syndrome. So, instead of moving to Canada, we're asking for an Emotional Support Canadian! It started as a joke, but we're not in a joking mood. It was stupid enough for us to take the bait. Many are just turning to alcohol & fries to cope with the this stupid year. And the booze is getting more stupid, too. My Insane FL Nephew, Pancho Guero" will run down all the new adult beverages to chose from. Anything from something sweet to something sickening...like whiskey from beaver butt juice. Pancho also offers advice to a parent who has a teenager who loves pranking his neighbors with fake missing pets posters....and the more bizarre the better. Joe Biden gets a "Genius Award" for his senile stupidity & I'll give you my Top Advantages of Being Stupid--because if "ignorance is bliss" some folks are in a BLIZZARD.

Cannibalistic Castration Experiments In Oklahoma? O.K.!
You would think as a law enforcement officer, you've seen it all, right? Not if you're a sheriff in LeFlore County, Oklahoma. Meanwhile in PA, 3 country boys are appealing their prison sentence because they think it's too severe...when all they did was get a little too "amorous" with some farm animals. Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands if you want to fulfill your customers needs at your local McDonald's. And you know your world just got stupider when the man who broke into your house & shot you in the face is now SUING YOU because you returned fire! My Insane FL Nephew, "Pancho Guero" has some of the most STUPID sports endings that could have only happened in 2020. We also got an extra hour of 2020 with the ending of Daylight Savings Time. Why can't we just "spring forward" to 2021 now?

Canceling A Christian "Chris" & TikTok Teenagers
Chris Pratt draws the TwitterVerse curse over his Christian beliefs & where he goes to church after Amy Berg starts a discussion on the "Worst Chris". Teenagers take the vampire look a step too far by super-gluing fangs on their real teeth & share the videos on TikTok. Some ZOOM meeting participants caught a little too much Toobin when a writer for "The New Yorker" & a CNN political analyst was seen with his pants down. Ranch dressing is great for salads & dipping sauce, but not so much for skin conditioner despite one 17-y/o boy who smeared it over his naked body before he jumps into a vehicle & crashes. My Insane FL Nephew, Pancho Guero, has some advice for a Grave Howler, & I get "brutally honest" about a well-known pastor who chose to "sprinkle" rather than baptize a woman on a plane flight.

The "Buzz" Over The VP Debate & A Catholic "Peep Show" In Louisiana
America is more obsessed with a fly than who will be the 2nd in command for our country. Just look who won the Vice Presidential debates...an unannounced "candidate" made the most BUZZ! But one priest in Louisiana made the biggest buzz--when he "laid it all on the altar"--complete with 2 cameras, stage lighting, & 3 dominatrixes!! The GOONS of the Washington, DC press corps is being attacked by political COONS while reporting from the White House. What do you do when you're being chased by a COUGAR...and also by a big cat?? The mayor of Anchorage, Alaska learns not to mess with a local TV news reporter who aired some "fake news" about his genitalia... If you're busted for stealing political signs & get your name in the local paper, it will only complicate things if you to then try to steal all of the local papers. Pancho Guero, my Insane FL Nephew, has the top horror flicks of all time, just in time for the Halloween season!

Married Couple's Horseplay--With An Actual Horse?
What is a married couple left to do when they've done it all? They rent a horse. And if the guys want to secure their family jewels with a bluetooth chastity belt, better make sure it can't get hacked or you'll need a hacksaw to cut it off. More debate dementia & election fatigue that is keeping Americans stressed out, too. Pancho Guero, my Insane FL Nephew, has some sage wisdom to a couple of advice-seekers & we talk about the new SNL season featuring Jim Carrey as "Sleepy Joe" Biden. He also describes how to properly massage kale. A full news breakdown of the week in review & more Geniuses getting their awards for stupidity like when the Post Office lost the cremated remains of a KY woman's mother. You'll also get the details on how you can purchase the creepy "Silence Of The Lambs" house that's for sale now near Pittsburgh, PA...just in time for Halloween.

Once In A "Blue Moon" Is Happening All Year Long
Presidential candidates weren't the only ones talking ugly this week. British parrots were cussing out visitors at a UK zoo. Pancho Guera, my "Insane Florida Nephew" addresses some of the dumb things guys do to prove their manhood. You can always look forward to some entertaining stupidity when you have a drunk, naked woman in a tussle with another woman in the front yard of a home, but this story has a twist at the end. Or, if your neighbor is doing his gardening in the buff...and covered in feces while eating flowers...you know I'll be talking about that, too. If it weren't for bad luck, one woman wouldn't have any luck at all...and she almost didn't live to see the next day after a tree crashes into her house during Hurricane Sally. But that wasn't the least of her troubles. And we are facing a Halloween in the jinxed year of 2020 during an October that has a "blue moon" ...ON Halloween night. A night that a FORMER kindergarten teacher won't need to bother with dressing up for Trick-or-Treating. He naturally scared the willies out of his children with his surgically blackened eyes & full-body tattoos. Stupidity never stops.

Is Your Dog A Democrat and Fun & Games With Pancho Guero
I grew up with "Yellow Dog" Democrats in Arkansas, but what if your actual dog is a Democrat? I have a way to find out. My Insane FL Nephew, now permanently known as "Pancho Guero", joins me again to spew off some stupidity to make you spew & put his FL knowledge to the test with a game of "Fake News or FLORIDA"...along with some other mind-numbing quizzes. If pandemic stress has you tied up in knots, a little 10 minute massage may do the trick, according to the University of Konstanz. It could also cause a different kind of stress when you get charged with sexual harassment. Do you know the most embarrassing thing your state has Googled? Maybe it was YOU. And what happens when you decide to show off your cool 9mm Glock handgun to your friend in the supermarket checkout line? It's not what you think. But it IS stupid! It's the fastest 2 hours of stupidity on your pod-player.

Crazy Coons And Feral Monkeys
Thank goodness Tampa didn't defund their police or else one poor woman would not have any one to remove a raccoon from her house. Also, Jacksonville, FL is turning into the Planet of the Apes with feral monkeys on the loose. "Paco Loco", my Insane FL Nephew, will join me again to help run down the stupidity in the Sunshine State. He may even be burning his new football-scented candle. And are you ready for a lovely, romantic evening with your significant other for a dinner for two ...at Taco Bell...complete with a glass of "Jalapeño Noir"? You'll only get to do that in Canada, though. Plus, if you are really desperate for football, forget asking Alexa. Just tune in with your beer can, thanks to Miller Lite. It's always great, big, stupid fun in my world.

The Summer of Discontent Is Over. Time To Adult
Labor Day has book-ended the "extended Spring Break that turned into Summer Vacation". This year is one big blur...of STUPIDITY. So we put to rest the Summer of 2020 with a proper funeral & get ready for pumpkin spice season. But if you're looking to kick the bucket soon & want to get one final dig on your family from beyond the grave, there's a guy you can call "Down Under" who will take care of it for you after you've gone down under. If you've had enough of Facebook or Instagram & want a break, you may earn some cash...from FACEBOOK...who is offering to pay you to deactivate your account. And if you think God's not listening to your prayers, you may want to talk to a drowning guy who prayed for help & God sent a tiki bar full of Catholic priests to the rescue. And "Pancho", my Insane FL Nephew returns to explain how he's teaching my son how to "adult".

Protesting Platform Platitudes & Strange Meat
If you're frying up a skillet of turkey tails & think you're seeing a man's "tee-tee", what do you do? You call the cops, just like the woman you'll hear about in this week's collection of stupidity. And the cancel culture thinks twenty-one pilots have become too entitled & wealthy to not use their platform for social change. So, when singer Tyler Joseph decides to dust of his platform shoes, it launches a firestorm from the TwitterTrigger Snowflakes. You'll also hear of the First Lady's secret "Operation Block Ivanka" aimed at preventing unnecessary photo ops. Plus, you are now able to work off excess pounds while working off excess sexual tension all at the same time with a new dumb bell. And let's not forget the urgent need to have properly-labeled boneless chicken wings, too. There's plenty of stupidity to keep you occupied as you listen to this week's episode while enjoying the great outdoors on your Labor Day camping trip.

The Christian University President With Too Much Liberty
The former Independent Baptist Tele-Evangelist, Jerry Fallwell, must be ready to rise up from his grave. His son, "Junior", had no other choice but to resign as the President of the University that his daddy started. Another example of what happens when a Christian takes too much "Liberty". Cher wants to play Post Office voluntarily. Also, excessive flatulence triggers a daughter to flatten her father because his gas was really irritating her. Young people today can get easily irritated by reading texts that have periods... And with Zoom schools starting up, we have a "Genius" who puts on a semi-striptease by treating his classmates to some flirtatious gyrations directed toward his teacher. Maybe he should be one of the first guys to wear the new "Brokini". Stupid is as stupid does.

A Sesame Street Bully...And Ellen DeGeneres
It took corrective surgery on a 17-y/o employee at a Sesame Street theme park in PA to repair the damage done by a man who slugged the teenager over being made to wear a mask. And the taunts by the bully, Ellen DeGeneres, on a 52-y/o man still has damaging effects after being verbally bullied as an 11-y/o...to the point that knowing DeGeneres' voice was used in Finding Nemo traumatized him so bad, he couldn't accompany his own children to watch the movie. And we have drunk guys riding lawn mowers on FL highways & folks getting drunk on hand sanitizer. Plus I have found the definitive candy that sums up what 2020 is turning out to be...IF you can call it, "candy".
August 23, 2020
Whiny MLB Players & Feudin' Arkansas Hillbillies
From the "Life's Not Fair" files: The TX Rangers boo-hoo the San Diego Padres because they're better at baseball than them. And a good ol' "Hatfield & McCoy" Arkansas Hillbilly feud between 2 farmers that lasts beyond the grave & involves a dead possum. A Chinese cat was literally a real "knock out" & the "MyPillow Guy" gets grilled by Anderson Cooper about his coronavirus concoction. Plus, chasing the ice cream truck will never be the same now that we know that "Turkey In The Straw" is a racist song. And I couldn't pass up one "Genius" who saw Jesus on a potato...right before she ate it. So much stupidity--so little time.

My Hometown Is Stupid!
If China were to subversively take over the US, they could start by infiltrating my hometown of Booneville, AR. You know those Chinese seeds that have been mailed to many folks in this country? The ones that the USDA says if you get a package in the mail, NOT TO PLANT? Well, some guy did in Booneville, AR. And he's have 'em growing in his garden for TWO MONTHS. And they've produced fruit! You have to hear what happened. And then there's the guy in England who has an interesting "conversation piece" on his forearm. Doctors are using his arm as fertile "soil" to regrow his MANHOOD. And now, COVID has taken the singing of "Sweet Caroline" away from us! What's next? Mac-&-Cheese as a BREAKFAST FOOD??? Well... yeah.

Rude Bosses, Weird Town Names, & Menu Madness
In the midst of the 2020 pandemic, pandemonium is rampant. We've got couples going out to walk the dog in their birthday suits, coin shortages, baseball that has already hit more than its share of fouls when it comes to keep COVID-free. And in PA, where I live, we have quite the "conversation piece" in our State Health Secretary...who was born a "he" but now is a "she". And the PA hill-jacks in the Alleghenies can't stop talking about him/her. One mountain tavern paid "tribute" to the Secretary by including a "special" item to their menu--that quickly sent reverberations from Philly to Pittsburgh. And the Governor wasn't happy about it either. But in all honesty, the item did sound pretty tasty. Nevertheless, the tavern was forced to remove it & post a mea culpa on its Facebook page.

Stealing Moby Dick Was A "Cakewalk"!
How much would you pay to have your phallic adult toy returned? A toy that was 40 pounds & 3 feet tall?? It may have been a cakewalk to shoplift it, but it's no cakewalk to use the word, "cakewalk"...because it's racist. So is, "master" & the phrase "sold down the river"...which is what will happen to you if you keep up with your vernacular. If you're taking an online college exam while eating a meatball sandwich, does the prof have to let you take your test over again when a falling meatball drops out of your sandwich & hits the "ESC" key to log you out of your exam? Yep...it really happened. More "Karens" in the news: Like the one who puddled in a Verizon store because she was told to "mask-up". Have you seen "Adult Swim" on the Cartoon Network? One woman managed to never see an episode in the 19 years it has been on the air...until now. And she's offended. Looking for a scholarship out of high school to be a "Devil's Advocate"? You can get one in the amount of $500--from the Satanic Temple.

If The Confederate Flag Is Racist, So Is The Southern Baptist Convention
The word, "racist" is being thrown around willy-nilly like it's as contagious as COVID-19. The World Health Organization (WHO) is being petitioned by about 1,000 of its employees to declare racism as a health risk. I didn't know it was ever classified as a DISEASE. And Confederate battle flags continue being pulled down & deemed as hate speech & racist. However, a former US Congressman from GA (and more famously known as "Cooter" from the Dukes of Hazard) is coming out saying all of this serves only to hurt everyone's feelings. If the origins of the Confederate battle flag are deemed "racist" (irregardless of how an individual personally views it), then the same must be said about the origins of the Southern Baptist Convention. It was solely started over the demand that Christians could be slaveowners. It matters not that the largest Protestant denomination in the world put forth their mea culpa in the 1990s & are continuing to push for racial diversity. The denomination BEGAN out of racism & should be completely dismantled & rebuild on a new foundation. Sound stupid? IT IS!!!!

Time To Cancel The "Cancel Culture" Crap?
It's all fun & games until liberals start canceling each other. With more liberals getting a dose of the medicine they've dealt to conservatives for years, now the outcry is for canceling the Cancel Culture. A blog that American Spectator author, Avery Bower wrote about the backlash that brewing from an open letter signed by 150 authors & intellectuals from across the political spectrum. Twitter users are busy trying to cancel the all-white country group, Lady A(ntebellum), for suing a Black soul singer named, Anita "Lady A" White...who has been using the nickname for over 2 decades ...with NO TRADEMARK (something that the band, Lady A, obtained in 2011 with no opposition). Oh, and did I mention that Ms. White wants to be compensated for her non-trademarked nickname to the tune of $10 million??? We have more Karens in the news & a Kanye running for President. Let the stupidity begin!

"Imagine" All The STUPID People
Makeup for men has finally gone mainstream. But if it is too upsetting for you to come into work now that your boss is wearing concealer & tinted moisturizer, you can use that as an excuse to call in sick. Or you may get sick when you find your favorite pizza shop also keeps frozen iguana on hand. Have you said in the past 6 months that would've sounded STUPID back in 2019? Believe it or not, you probably have & didn't realize it. Would John Lennon's "Imagine" be a good NEW National Anthem? A lot of people signing a petition thinks so. And get ready for a new summertime treat: Homemade ice cream...with tasty recipes made from your favorite ketchup brand...?

Pancake Syrup Virtue Signaling
When is pancake syrup political? Grocery shopping will never be the same when you feel guilty buying Cream of Wheat & Eskimo Pies. Companies all across the fruited plain are in CYA mode as product mascots become WOKE. Phallic objects have become the preferred option for drug smuggling & yard ornaments. Cats have become a detriment for guys trying to couple with a mate & dogs have become a lightning rod for couples trying to live together. A block party in Philadelphia was so desperate for a pool, they rented a dumpster. And, we come off of a Father's Day weekend looking at the dumbing-down of sitcom dads. My Insane Florida Nephew, from the Sunshine State, returns to converse about these & other salient stupidity prevailing in this stupid world.

A First Father's Day With My Insane FL Nephew
You may have heard the reference of “Florida Man” when there’s a story of some stupid stunt that’s pulled by some guy who lives in Florida. Well, I have what I’ll be referring to as my “Insane Florida Nephew”. And he’s celebrating his very first Father’s Day as a new father. He joins the podcast -- in what may be a recurring feature -- from his headquarters in Jacksonville.. We talk about being a dad & how that by age 37, we become our own fathers. Also I run by some weird Father's Day gifts past my Insane FL Nephew to get his reaction on receiving any of them. Oh and there's the other stupidity featured, too, such as wondering if Nickelodeon "outed" SpongeBob SquarePants for Pride Month. Or what HBO is calling itself these days. And Disney scrubbing Splash Mountain down to cleanse any filthy racist slime from the attraction's theme...which is based on a banned 1946 Disney movie, "Song of the South".

Going Looney Tunes Over The Confederate Flag
Elmer Fudd has been turned into a DUD after HBO Max took away his gun. Will you soon be ordering your drinks at the bar from a robot bartender? Have you ever jammed a charging cord up your tallywhacker just for thills? Someone did. How will the COVID-19 pandemic affect Hollywood's future sex scenes? They could go CGI. Cities like New York, L.A., and Minneapolis have floated the idea of replacing Cops with Social Workers who would respond to most disputes and defuse the tension. Online dating has led to "cushioning" & it's nothing like "pillow talk". And a West (by God) Virginia man tries to help his wife stage a fake death at an overlook. The stupidity never stops. Not even to go to the bathroom.

If You Find Yourself In A Riot, Steal A Cheesecake
A woman who allegedly participated in the looting of a Cheesecake Factory during protests in Seattle became an unlikely internet sensation over the weekend. The woman was filmed by a local TV news station Saturday carrying what appeared to be an entire strawberry-topped cheesecake down the street, a block away from the Cheesecake Factory. Would you like it if strangers came into your house to tie you while you were in your underwear & then stroke your crotch with a broom handle? You wouldn't if they were late for the appointment because the went to the wrong house. And some advice if you plan on taking a selfie in a bathroom while your spouse is on the can: Make sure you don't capture them as they wipe. So grab a can of "Hop Dog" Beer & enjoy the show!

Penguin Poop Makes This Podcast Funnier
You don’t need to tell scatological jokes to induce laughter — penguin scat will do that on its own. The flightless bird’s feces apparently produce an insane amount of laughing gas, which has reduced Antarctic researchers to hysterics. A classic high school prank got a makeover for the coronavirus era when Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves. If the quarantine had you REALLY desperate for entertainment, there was this: CBS actually ran a special called "Haircut Night in America", that featured celebrities cutting their own hair. (???)

I Married A Martha, Not a Karen, or A Joan
Nosy neighbors who report you & your child to the police for playing Pokemon Go ...then bake you a cake to apologize. Yep The neighbor's name must have been "Karen". Remember that old TV show from the 1950s called, I Married Joan? Well, I didn't marry Joan--but I certainly didn't marry a "Karen". So for everyone who has been a victim of a "Karen", I have an apology for you. One woman didn't "go all Karen" on a Taco Bell employee... she went "all Cheetah" at the drive-thru window by throwing her POOP at the employees.... Can we get any more stupid than this?

Bikinis With Matching Facemasks & IKEA Peepshows
We are being patrolled to make sure we are all wearing facemasks & are practicing social distancing. But what about having patrols out to keep folks from pleasuring themselves while shopping at IKEA? They will now, thanks to one woman's escapade in a store in China. Facemasks have spurred a whole new fashion craze & now come as accessories to swimwear, too! Think it's joke? The woman who came up with the idea thought it would be...until she started getting orders for them.

BONUS SHOW: Interview with A Stupid DJ
What a riot it was to ZOOM with the Chambersburg, PA band MAWCORE earlier this week! I have known Joshua Redding for many years when he was first in the band Blushing Well. Mawcore is driven to “Flood our World with Hope-Driven Fearless Rock”, as described on their website. And they drive a hard bargain to compare them to anyone else. A unique sound that's beefy & passionate. Their faith is likewise full of Spiritual protein that will encourage the soul mired in disappointment. I've interviewed countless artists & political figures but have rarely been interviewed by them. Until now. What an absolute fun encounter it was as we all got a little stupid.

Stupid People Peeing Their Pants & It's Not Due To Murder Hornets
A new Tik-Tok Challenge has reached new levels of stupidity, making me question how much longer the human species has left before evolutionary regression. And if you have an appetite as you listen to this week's podcast, you may not have one when you finish--especially if your palate has an aversion to bugs. Also I tell about an early memory about my short-lived joyride in my Dad's Ford Falcon, but it pales in comparison to a Utah 5 year old.

Some Would Rather Clean A Toilet Than Clean Their Car--Or Listen To This Podcast
More reasons to just stay home after the lockdown is over because you're going to be glued to your device listening to all the stupidity from this past week. Or you could just listen to this week's podcast while you clean your car ...or your garage.... just don't throw anything away that could blow up a garbage truck. Some already have.

These Stimulus Checks Are Getting Folks STIMULATED
Have you got your stimulus? Don't answer that too quickly... Folks have yet to get theirs, but think they'll need another one already. But when the guv-ment sends free money to people... it makes the stupid. And, you can get stupid being cooped up inside, too. And it's situations like this that have given me so much more examples from my Stupid World.

Is COVID-19 Causing The Whole Country To Act Like FLORIDA?
Of all the stupidity I've ever heard about, I have one story that will cause you to thank any "loss prevention officer" at a Walmart. I can honestly say that it was one case where the $#!t was going to fly if a woman was caught shoplifting. Also, some other stories that didn't quite make it on to my morning radio show: A New App Will Help You Meditate on the Toilet. Also I'll pass on some interesting stats on handshaking with "When the Pandemic Is Over, Will You Ever Go Back to Shaking Hands?" Plus, a romantic story about a woman and a CHANDELIER. And have you ever wondered, What's a Random Stat You Wish You Knew About Yourself? I've also got some real gems for this week's GENIUS AWARDS, too.

Too Much Family Time During A Pandemic
The COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak is really having an effect on family togetherness. Also in this episode, you may soon have your toilet tell you more than you ever wanted to know about.... what comes out of you--with pictures to prove it. And this is just the beginning of what I've encountered in my stupid world.
April 12, 2020
DISCLAIMER: If the audio sounds like it's skipping, the tech support at Anchor is aware of this & hopefully are working on a solution. This episode I have to pull out my soapbox because of the number of stupid pastors who feel they know more than God...or the government health authorities. They willingly, repeatedly, & intentionally put their congregation--and the rest of us sinners--at risk of catching a contagious virus FOR WHICH THERE IS NO CURE. This, as well as other acts of stupidity that may or may not have come from having contracted COVID-19.

Covidiots & Coronavirus Challenges
Where there is stupidity, there's always challenges. And it's a challenge sometimes to live in a world of stupidity. That's why I love passing on some of the finer moments of humanity in my stupid world.. This week, some of the "Corona Crazies" are participating in their "remote committee meetings" in their birthday suits instead of their business suits. I'm also stepping on my soapbox about this new trend of swallowing your "T"'s when you pronounce words like "better", "kitten", or other examples of "T-glottalizations" . Take it from me, I've received a degree in B.S. from the DJ University, you sound like an IDIOT. So stop it. And we've gone from licking ice cream in supermarkets to licking ...TOILETS?

Bunkered Down For COVID-19
I have now become a tele-worker from my underground bunker. So with the coronavirus bringing everything to a standstill, podcasts are becoming all the rage. So, with how this pandemic is making the whole world lose its mind, you may as well lose yours by listening to the Coronavirus Chaos that is spreading faster than the coronavirus itself! And if I cough during the podcast, please don't freak out! It's just allergies.

The Viral Pandemic That's Not A Video
So we have all sporting events, concerts, late night TV talk shows, & award shows all canceled or postponed. Also, we have schools & universities halting in-person classes. And we HAVE NO TOILET PAPER! It's a world gone stupid. Why am I not surprised?

The Coronavirus Is Making Folks Stupid
If you want to watch the stupidity come out in folks, just create a mass panic. Now, I'm not downplaying a serious pandemic, but let's be real here, folks.

This week, I have culled some of the stupidity from my world so I can improve yours.

My Son's Getting Married So I Think I'll Do Another Podcast
Since I'm not that involved in the wedding where my son is getting married, I thought I would release some of the tension by sharing some of the stories I have come across in my stupid world this week!

Population Control Courtesy Of Disney
I'm back from a week's vacation at Walt Disney World & after watching all the crowds patiently waiting in lines for a short "experience", I thought this may be the answer to getting the government to better bring its people under control. And they would enjoy the experience. Lines at the DMV would no longer trigger folks. When I returned home, I saw that our friends at PETA (People Enjoying Tasty Animals?) have a "win-win" suggestion for Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney, PA....NOT! Plus a few other stories that highlight what a stupid world I came back to after my vacation. EXPERTS WARN SMARTPHONE VOTING IS ‘EXTREMELY RISKY,’ BUT IT’S COMING The Most Annoying Pictures We Take on Vacation The Head of PETA Says You're Walking Your Dog Wrong PETA Wants to Replace Punxsutawney Phil with a Robot (and their argument why) Easter Bunny Charged with Hit & Run Granny & granddaughter charged with meth trafficking at the boarder New breakthrough technology for the BRAINLESS!

New Year, New Stupidity, & the New Journalism
Do you know what yellow journalism is? Sadly, it is the new definition for 21st Century reporting. I am still hoping there will be a news organization that will emerge in the new decade to actually tell the news instead of inserting themselves into the news. I can hope, can't I? In the meantime, there are enough stupid news stories to insert my opinion into that starts us off for 2020. Like the one where a Grubhub delivery man delivered an "ash-whippin'" to a Florida Burger King. Then there's the pair of sexagenarians that took the "sex" part a little too far in a women's bathroom at a Florida beachside bar. How about the nightmare on Christmas that frightened a North Carolina couple into calling the police when they heard noises in their home. This was one time that a police call on Christmas really sucked. And some gas pumps were the recipient of blows delivered by an inebriated Florida man who had just come from a Christmas party where he got into a row with his girlfriend. Looks like my Stupid World will have another banner year ahead.

The Best of 2019's Stupid World
The great moments of stupidity from 2019 will not help us be less stupid for 2020. Instead, it will challenge us to "top that" for the next year. I'll reminisce about all the stupid people & stupid stunts we lived through this past year: 1. The "10 Year Challenge" reminds us to never trust anyone. 2. Sunning your rectum, and other terrible viral health trends 3. Would you buy used tissues to help prepare for flu season? 4. End of an era...? 5. South Dakota's anti-meth slogan sends the wrong message. 6. The Navy's strange UFO denial and other conspiracy theories. 7. Disgusting things are so hot right now. 8. A man dies having sex on a business trip . . . his wife successfully sues for workers comp. 9. The plan to storm Area 51. 10. A short guy starts a fight in a bagel shop and then has quite a journey. 11. Well that's ironic. 12. Oh, come on. 13. Saying "OK, boomer" at work could get you fired. 14. A study involving bunnies, Prozac, and a horny rabbit named Frank may have unlocked the mystery of the female climax. 15. A guy with a full back Jar Jar Binks tattoo says he's had sex many times. 16. The three cameras on the iPhone trigger people with a fear of holes? 17. Popeye's hires its imposter restaurant to help launch its chicken sandwich. 18. The four-day work week is a huge success. 19. Gender reveals are done having a moment. 20. And finally . . .DON'T HAVE A COW, GRANDMA!

People Get Crazier At Christmas
JR Rife is back on the podcast this week talking with me & reacting about several stupid stories from the Christmas season. We chat about topping off our Christmas tree, turmoil embroiling within the largest Protestant denomination in the country, misunderstanding marriage, & an office bathroom policy that really SMELLS.! What Do You Put on Top of Your Christmas Tree? Jolly Rancher Cereal Is Now on Sale. A new study found that our bodies don't really age gradually . . . there are really three ages where our bodies make a big shift to their next, older stage. And those ages are: 34 . . . 60 . . . and 78. Someone on Reddit posted a photo of their crazy office bathroom policy. If they take longer than 10 minutes, someone goes in after them to do a "SMELL CHECK" . . . to make sure they were really doing their business, not just playing on their phone. For the first time ever, we had more DIGITAL conversations than FACE-TO-FACE ones this year. The main reasons are an increase in people living alone and working remotely, and just having fewer friends to spend time with. One in five people are planning to give a passive-aggressive "take the hint" gift this year, according to a new survey. Those include things like perfume . . . a cookbook . . . a self-help book . . . and exercise equipment or a gym membership. What's the worst thing a guest has done while they were staying with you? A recent discussion on Reddit had some doozies. Like someone's uncle who tried to fix a computer and a dishwasher that weren't broken . . . and broke them. And a weirdo who took one bite out of every single apple in the house. In Last-Minute Move, Southern Baptist Convention Supports Anti-Christian Racial Identity Politics - The Southern Baptist Convention is being infiltrated by an ideology that is antithetical to the Christian religion, right under the noses of SBC members.

Portland's People Pooches

Kanye, Jesus, & Joel Olsteen with a side of Chick-Fil-A
You can't please everybody & this is proven in the reaction from Kanye West's new profession of faith, Chick-Fil-A's new direction in donating to non-profits, & how women are to be treated in the church. JR Rife joins in on the discussion after returning stateside from NordicFest 2019 & a book signing for his new photography book. Check out JR's Facebook page, listen to his podcast, pick up some of his books on his Amazon site & watch for his newest book release coming soon! What is your take on all this stupidity? I'd love to hear your response/reaction to our discussion. Feel free to leave a comment or a question & it may be used in an upcoming podcast!

Poetic Truth: A Conversation with The Truth Poet
I was able to get to know about a new local poet from Central PA who has just published a new 274 page book called, Truth Poet: Truths of Our Fallen World and Glorious God (Inspiring Voices). Joshua I. Sykes delves into truth on various levels—some truth is quite hard & controversial, while much is comforting. Sykes believes truth is an important thing & needs to be shared in any way possible. The truth Sykes is talking about is Jesus. His book contains poems about real situations & material that many readers may have experienced or know of themselves. The book offers readers a different lens & spurs them on in personal growth. Sykes wants readers to take away that “Jesus loves you right where you are, no matter who you are. Start to know Him; He is the Truth.” “Truth Poet” By Joshua I. Sykes Softcover | 5.5 x 8.5in | 274 pages | ISBN 9781462412716 E-Book | 274 pages | ISBN 9781462412723 Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Getting Sanctus Real About An Unstoppable God
My conversation with Dustin of the band, "Sanctus Real" during a stop on their "Unstoppable God" tour at the Somerset Alliance Church in south-central PA. Check out the band's website to get more info on their tour dates & music. To get more info on upcoming events at the Somerset Alliance Church, visit their website. Also, in the podcast, I referred to Pastor Todd Willoughby as the Lead Pastor... he is actually the Youth Pastor ...which makes him an even cooler dude.

Pete Cannizzaro: On A SoulQuest With Pain
I visit with a former pastor who has a desire to help coach current pastors through the pain that comes with the pastorate. Pete coaches soccer at Grace Prep High School in State College, PA & has been a pastor in various churches. He began SoulQuest Ministries International in 2018 to equip the emerging generation in their intimacy with Christ and in their calling from Christ through teaching, coaching, spiritual pilgrimages, and professional counseling. You can also find SoulQuest Ministries on Facebook.

Living Life Fearlessly - An Interview with Allan Scott
Allan's life story from the "gutter-most to the uttermost". Musician, Allan Scott, has seen the good, the bad, & the restored in his life. Being brought up in a home that honors God & having found a saving faith in Christ. But Allan had an identity problem. He was looking for his identity in what others saw in him rather than what Christ saw in him. It took a journey that removed him from the life that kept him in close relationship with the Lord to make him realize that he never had is so good than when he was in the comfort of his Savior. Now that he has been restored, he is seeking other who need restoration with the message of being "Found & Favored". Learn more about the Allan Scott Band at allanscottmusic.com. Find out more about his new ministry outreach at Found & Favored Ministries at www.foundandfavored.org. Listen to his music anywhere you stream your favorite tunes or buy a copy of his new CD, The Story, at Google Play, Apple Music, or Amazon.

A "Tempest" In A Teapot
I talk with J.R. Rife, whom I had the unlikely blessing of getting to know first as a 19 year old teen who attended a concert at a Brookville, PA teen center years ago. J.R. now is a pastor, a "world evangelist" of sorts, a metal missionary, & an author. His book, General Admission: A History of Christian Metal by a Fan is a quick read but highly informative of the Christian metal scene in Pennsylvania. More recently, J.R. was a weekly featured segment of my Christian Rock show, "Bread-n-Jam!" where he shared "The Life of Rife" with radio listeners. I suspect we'll be hearing a lot from J.R. in the future, and that's namely because he has an awesome radio voice. In the podcast I reference a band that I helped get signed to Frontline Records names A Few Loose Screws. Yes, you can still buy their music, however I have no idea where the individual band members ever disappeared to. Probably in hiding after releasing their one & only CD. If you have questions or comments about the podcast, please leave a message & if you or someone you know would like to be a guest on a future podcast, I'd love to consider the opportunity... so just drop me a message or an email at ShoutOut@InsaneErikLane.com.

Country Music Keeps It Real
Thomas Rhett's simple prayer had a big impact. It may have been "unconventional", but it was real. Why is this such a big deal today? Because fewer Christians are standing up & being real. You may not like the genre of music, and you may look at Country Music artists are hillbillies or rednecks. You can't deny that they are transparent. The good, the bad, & the honest. Just like real life. Christian music extols the ideal life....that few people actually live. We all have our faults & we all need to have goals to strive for. So don't knock Christian music for being too heavenly minded to be any earthly good....and don't knock Country Music for being hypocritical.

Your Spiritual ID, Kindness, & Ellen
Take up Ellen DeGeneres' challenge & try being kind. Or if taking the advice of a person you may disagree with or oppose, try taking up the 30 Day Kindness Challenge from Shaunti Feldhahn. All truth is God's Truth. So just because you may not agree or like the messenger who is speaking truth, doesn't mean God isn't speaking through that person. Being kind is not that difficult. It's much harder to fester & brood into bitterness than it is at being kind. To be kind means you have to surrender something for the benefit of another. Have a differing view? Have some questions or comments? I'd love to hear them & respond to them. Send me a message through Anchor Podcast. I'll be happy to address it in an upcoming episode. http://Podcast.InsaneErikLane.com

I have a big 'ol jug to guzzle down while watching all the stupid things people are saying. Here's some samples: Hillary Clinton told “The View” that the gutsiest thing she ever did was stay with Bill Clinton. A Corrupt Chinese Mayor was arrested after authorities found 13 tons of GOLD and $37 BILLION dollars in cash in his basement. The Universal Orlando Resort Theme Park has fired a Despicable Me character who made a white power gesture while being photographed with two kids. A Florida man was arrested after he called 9-1-1 and told the operator he had drugs. The betting markets have made Elizabeth Warren the favorite to win the Democratic Nomination. A British survey found that sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise with people over the age of 65.

God Told Me
Is it really God telling us --or something else? Many times it is more like us deflecting our desire to elevate ourselves to God so we can skirt the blame.

Going Deep Off The Grid
The stupid things we believe about theology. My decision to choose God's salvation does not determine my salvation any more than God's foreknowledge of my salvation determines my salvation. I don't have the authority to "accept" Christ. My only option is surrender...and receive Christ. My thoughts on being a Calvinist vs. Reformed. To read a great resource on this topic, check out Trouble With The Tulip by Frank S. Page. (Theme song courtesy of Randy Stonehill; "It's A Great Big Stupid World".
