Funny Phobias
Yi! Here are the 10 most common phobias:
1. Glossophobia -- the fear of public speaking.
2. Necrophobia -- the fear of death or dying.
3. Arachnophobia -- the fear of spiders.
4. Myctophobia -- the fear of darkness.
5. Acrophobia -- the fear of heights.
6. Sociophobia -- the fear of socializing or being in a crowded place.
7. Aerophobia -- the fear of flying.
8. Claustrophobia -- the fear of confined spaces.
9. Agoraphobia -- the fear of being unable to escape an open place.
10. Brontophobia -- the fear of thunder and lightning.

Let's face it, we're all scared of something....speaking in public, flying, spiders. It's perfectly normal to be afraid of stuff like that. We want to know, what weird things are you afraid of?

OPP: Fight Mother-In-Law
Yi!

Kate is on the phone and she is furious! Her mother-in-law constantly sticks her nose into all of Kate and her husband's business. Kate's husband always sides with his mother instead of her and it is impossible for Kate to do anything without her MIL getting involved.

For example, Kate has been planning a birthday party for her husband. She has lined up catering and sent out invitations. Now, her MIL thinks it would be better to have the party at her house. She has convinced Kate's husband that they should move it! Kate is so mad, she is driving to confront her MIL.

Have you ever dealt with an overbearing MIL? What can Kate do?

Hero or Zero
Yi!

Steve overheard a woman tell her boyfriend that she wanted a stuffed animal out of the crane machine. Her boyfriend said those things are a waste of money and wouldn't get it for her. Steve used to be good at the claw machine and wanted to play it anyway, so he gave it a shot. He won a Buzz Lightyear toy in 2 tries. He gave it to the woman and her boyfriend got mad! Steve said he was just trying to be nice and wasn't trying to start conflict.

Do you think Steve was a d-bag for getting her the stuffed animal?

Compliments
YI!

A new study was done to see what women think about compliments. Only 38% say they like to hear compliments from their partner, while 21% of women are uncomfortable when they got complimented. Some women say when a random man compliments them they feel like he’s on hitting them.

Slacker wants to be complimented and sometimes craves them, but then if you compliment him too much he is like, okay, back off. He likes to compliment his wife with being a great mother and looking beautiful. He thinks women get tired of hearing the same compliments all the time!

Steve is weirded out by compliments and doesn’t need them to survive. He compliments only when it’s warranted. Steve gives ,but sometimes women think he is creep and hitting on them.  Steve asks if women get tired of getting complimented on more than their physicality?

Ladies, what is the biggest compliment you could receive from your partner? How about the creepiest?

I always love when my boyfriend tells me I look sexy no matter what I’m wearing. Even when I am laying in bed no makeup on, in a t-shirt --he still thinks I’m beautiful. The creepiest is when this kid asked me if he could see my feet because they were beautiful….. weirdo!

Lucky to be Alive
YI!

A girl in Texas went sky diving for her 16th birthday and jumped right after her dad, only to find out that her primary shoot wouldn't open! Her dad watched her fall to the ground from 3,500 feet up in the air. Thankfully, she survived but has some broken bones. Talk about being lucky!

Slacker says he will never go skydiving with Steve. Slacker says Steve falls asleep at the most outrageous moments and he would fall asleep and not pull the chute. He used to have a truck and his back tire got shredded and he was going to slam into the median, but he came to a stop and he just sat there like, what the heck happened.


Steve says sky diving is the biggest rush and a huge risk. He thinks it is amazing that she didn’t hit trees or anything. Steve says if your chute doesn’t deploy you’re supposed to fall on your side. He says your hips will protect you.

Why are you lucky to be alive?

OPP: Saw His Paycheck Stub
YI!
Yi! I was at my fiancé's apartment and I saw his final paycheck stub from last year sitting on the counter. I'm usually not this kind of person, but curiosity got the better of me and I looked when he was in the shower. He told me he made $50,000 and it showed he made $52,000. I'm not upset about that. What I am angry about is that it showed that he made $10,000 in bonuses. He has never mentioned getting paid any sort of bonus. I have no idea where that money is or what he spent it on. If he had no problem hiding this much money from me, what else could he be hiding? Should I confront him about hiding the money? 
Sydney
 
Slacker suggests whoever else has this problem tell your company to go paperless. He could actually be having an affair. Because he asks really, where is the money?! He doesn’t believe in the “What else can he be hiding.” It is a little weird to not share their bonuses with their significant other. $10,000 is a lot of money. If he didn’t tell his wife about $10,000 he would be dead. He never hid things and still doesn’t from his wife.

Steve says this hits close to home for him. Once they make it legal and he tries to withhold the money if they get divorced then that’s fraud. He thinks if you are engaged then you come clean with everything right?!

What advice do you have for Sydney?

I would straight up ask him. And tell him to show her his credit card statements and see where else he has been spending.

GMD: Filthy Car
YI!

Earl and Samantha's marriage is on the line and it's all because of her car. It is filthy with trash everywhere and Earl is saying she needs to clean it. Samantha says she's raising two kids and has way more to deal with than her car being dirty.

Slacker isn’t taking Earl’s side, but he questions Samantha about her time and asked her if she can take 5 minutes to clean it. She replied she can go get it cleaned by a professional. He asked Samantha how bad is the car actually? How many wrappers are really in there? Samantha replied that she cleans the car out every 7-10 days. Earl is paying for her car and he thinks Earl is up playing the trash in the car.  

Steve said to Samantha that she needs to be a role model for her kids. He is a very neat and cleanly person, so he gets Earl’s position. He has dated single moms and there was trash in their cars too. He hated it.

Whose side are you on?
 
I am on both sides. I have a neat, messy car. It looks disorganized, but I know exactly where everything is in my car although, I don’t have children. That is a big factor. But seriously clean your car lady. Take 10 minutes or do what you suggested and go get it cleaned. That’s disgusting.

Celebrity Kiss & Tell
Yi!

We have a friend that is in New York for the big game this weekend. She was in a bar having a drink when someone asked her what she was having. She turned around and it was a former athlete turned analyst. They chatted for a while and then he asked her if she wanted to leave. When they left the bar, they got into a limo with the guy's manager. They guy was dropped off at the hotel and the limo circled around a second time so the manager and our friend could get out together. The manager told her that if she wanted to go upstairs, she had to be all over him when they walked into the hotel. If the ex-athlete would have walked into the hotel with a woman all over him it would have been a scandal...but a manager walks in with a woman all over him and no one questions it! She ended up in the ex-athlete's room and hooked up with him!

Have you ever had a celebrity hook up? Who was yours?

Make Us Believe
Yi!

We'll admit it...there are some things we are a little skeptical about. UFOs, Bigfoot, conspiracy theories. But this story really made us question things.

Allegedly, a nine-year-old boy in Indiana walked backwards up a wall and ceiling in front of medical staff after his mother claimed he and his two siblings had been possessed by demons. A child services case worker and a nurse both said they saw the boy 'glide' backwards on the floor, wall and ceiling. Both were shocked to see the boy apparently float after their mother claimed that her home in Gary, Indiana, was haunted. The mother also said that all three of her children showed signs of being possessed including 'evil' smiles and unnaturally deep voices. The home was officially exorcised by a catholic priest who said the ceremonies were officially authorized by the Diocese of Gary, and the police captain said he is a “true believer” that the house is haunted.

WHAT?!?! That is the most insane thing we've ever heard! Do you believe in things like this? Tell us your story to make us believe!

OPP: Scared to be Pregnant
Yi!

Claire joined us on the air today to share her OPP. She is pregnant and she is absolutely terrified. She's scared she won't be a good mom for her child. She says her boyfriend has been really supportive, but she's worried that she's being a terrible girlfriend and he's going to break up with her because she is so hormonal. She's also very nervous about the actual birthing process. She feels like every other mom is so happy and giddy during pregnancy and she is a mess.

Slacker put Claire on hold halfway through because she was so distraught. He said that most people only really tell you the positives of pregnancy and now that Claire is actually growing a child inside her, she is finding out about all the gross stuff that comes along with it. Steve said that he thinks the reality of the impending kid is hitting Claire all at once and she'll find a way to work through it all.

Did you have any of Claire's fears? What would you tell Claire?

Bad Proposal
Yi!

There are a couple stories in the news about bad proposals.

First:
Oliver Wright recently proposed to his girlfriend Kelly by arranging rocks at a London quarry to read: Will You Marry Me?. She saw the message during their daily walk. The couple met on a dating site. Kelly tells the Daily Mail, ''I was completely overwhelmed. We were walking along holding hands and it was a beautiful sunny morning then Oliver suddenly stopped. I looked at him, then looked down the cliff and that's when I saw it. I just froze, I couldn't believe it. Then I said "yes, yes, yes" and he went down on one knee and got the ring out. We went down to the bottom of the hill and Oliver pulled out a bottle of champagne from behind a rock and poured two glasses. We sat there and celebrated with a glass of champagne despite it only being 11 o'clock in the morning. Walkers at the top of the hill shouted down their congratulations to us. It was a really special moment and one I will remember for the rest of my life.''

Then there is the crème de la crème:
A man proposed to his girlfriend during a traffic stop in New London, New Hampshire. The man asked cops to help him propose and they agreed to help. Cops pulled over the car with him and his girlfriend in it. They asked him to get out and pretended to put handcuffs on him. They then patted him down and pulled something out of his pants… it was an engagement ring. The girlfriend went from being scared to being happy and said yes. Check out the video below.

Steve admitted that he came close to proposing once. He had everything all planned out and then never went through with it. He was going to take the girl to a rocky cliff area in California and propose to her at the exact spot her father proposed to her mother. He was going to say, "I have nothing to give you, except my love that will last forever." After the proposal, her parents would walk out and everyone would celebrate together. Aww.

Did you have a bad proposal, or was it perfect? How did he do it?

Awkward Interview Questions
Yi!
Job interviews are nerve racking anyways, but when employers blind side you with very random questions like "If you were a pizza deliveryman how would you benefit from scissors?" like Apple does, what do you do… answer? Talk about awkward.

Slacker thinks other people have to jump through hoops to get a job that they will hate anyways. He and Steve absolutely love their job; they don’t even consider it a job. It is an accomplishment if they got fired from somewhere because it is inevitable in the radio business.

What weird or awkward questions have you been asked in a job interview?

I wasn’t asked a question, but I was told to describe this desert, and when I described it the manager literally had drool coming out of his mouth. He was weird.

Going to Hell
Yi!
James Chatten of Canada called an escort, but didn't have the money to do so. He then decided to steal the money from the donations at church and devised a plan to cover it up. It didn't work and the church gave him 100 hours community service. He'll have fun in hell.

Slacker said yes, he is poor, but it doesn’t make it right. He said that he would take that punishment. It's better than prison time! Steve said that guy is awesome and he was in need so he took the money. He of course laughs at his opinion. They both agree they’ll meet each other in hell at some point!

What are you going to hell for?

I stole my little sister's Halloween candy from her. It sure was delicious!

OPP: 25 and Getting Hickeys
Yi!
Yi guys! I started dating a girl and a few months ago, she gave me a giant hickey. I got angry and asked her not to do it anymore. I'm 26 and have a good job and I can't show up to work with giant hickeys on my neck! Plus, I think it's pretty trashy in general. Last weekend we were getting ready to go out with a group of my friends and she did it again! My friends all told me that she is marking her territory. They think she did it the first time so women at work would see it and the second time so the girls I'm friends with would see it. If it's true, I'm starting to think it's a huge red flag and the first signs of a jealous psycho! Is she trying to mark her territory? Is this a sign that she's crazy?
Clint

Slacker and Steve both think that his girlfriend is marking her territory especially after telling her twice. They both think that hickeys are so high school. They look stupid and trashy. They both think that so many people leave hickeys on purpose. They called Lil’ D out for having a hickey and he actually wore a sweater with a collar to cover it up.

What should Clint do?

Break up with her. She is a psycho. Hickeys are so gross and look gross. I am anti-hickey.

Scarred for Life
Yi!
Pope Francis recently brought children to the Vatican to release 2 doves as a sign of peace. Right after they released the doves, seagulls and crows came in and attacked the doves right in front of thousands of people. Try getting that image out of your head.

Slacker says that these children that witnessed this are scarred for life. Imagine being a catholic child and letting these birds go and then they get eaten. He talks about another story about how these kids let a bunny go after nursing it back to health and literally 14 seconds after releasing it the bunny got eaten by a hawk. His scarred for life moment is when he got “depantsed” at a pool. He had been swimming in cold water and a girl pulled his pants down showing his…stuff.  

Steve thinks the dove thing is horrible. He laughs hysterically at Slacker for being “depantsed.”

What moment has scarred you for life?

I caught my mom and her boyfriend having relations….. Enough said.

You're Average
Yi!
Apparently being a mother and a wife is the easiest, most average things a woman can do, according to this blog.

Slacker agrees that we over celebrate the marriage thing. This blogger says saying, “I do” and having kids is doing nothing with their life because it is the average thing to do. But Slacker says that’s not doing nothing. She belittles women that have these motherly instincts.

Steve has the author’s back on this topic. He agrees with the part of the blog that talks about “miracles,” known as children, that aren’t miracles. Anyone can get married.  It is a woman’s instinct to want kids and get married. A man’s biological code says they want to be polygamous and have multiple partners.

What are your thoughts?

I would never look down on a woman that has kids and got married. That’s just ridiculous. I do agree, however, that women should be more empowered and be able to get praised for getting a promotion or a back packing trip to Europe. I think that’s awesome. But being a mother is hard! So is marriage!

Road Rage
Yi!
A Florida man is under investigation after shooting himself in a road rage incident! He claims that he and another man had an altercation. Once he saw the other man pull a gun out, he pulled his out accidentally shooting him in the leg. He was treated at a local hospital and will be okay.

Slacker believes he cut off this man and all of a sudden this person does 90 past him and does a rectangle around me and almost touches his bumper. Or they were just overly aggressive for no reason. Slacker makes fun of Steve because he gets up on the butt of a car before he lane changes. He used to pretend he would reach for his “gun” and then people would just leave you alone, but not anymore!

Steve said he inspires the road rage. He says it is pointing out faults for other drivers. Steve poked fun at Slacker for being a “Gun Bluffer.”

What crazy road rage have you experienced?

Honestly, I don’t really have road rage. I throw up the peace sign when I accidentally wrong someone on the road and I swear it calms the other driver down.

OPP: Overheard a Secret
Yi!

Yi! My girlfriend's best friend has been on and off with a guy for the last few years. She was hanging out at our apartment and told my girlfriend that they were back together and she had stopped taking her birth control and she hasn't told her boyfriend. She's trying to get pregnant on purpose! I've met the guy a few times and I barely know him, but I feel like maybe I should give him a warning about what she's doing. It could change his life forever. At the same time, I think he's an idiot for always getting back with this crazy girl and they both need to learn their lesson. What should I do?
Rob
 
Slacker said that the confrontation of the 2 men would be weird. It was like this girl was taunting Rob thinking he wouldn’t tell her boyfriend. He thinks that if the 2 are not close it would be awkward. And if this was Steve in this situation, Slacker wouldn’t tell Steve because he keeps getting back with the crazy lady.

Steve says that if he was Rob then he would definitely tell the boyfriend. His ultimate rule is to never get into someone’s relationships, but he would break that rule in this case. He said he doesn’t care if he would flip out in public or punched him in the face he would prevent someone from being tricked. Steve says he always bring his birth control no matter what. Never trust a woman.

Should Rob tell this guy or just let him learn his lesson?

I definitely think Rob should tell the guy that his girlfriend is planning something like this. I don’t think it is fair to the boyfriend and bringing a child into this world with another broken relationship wouldn’t be wise. Stop being selfish. Just tell him!!

Foot in Mouth
Yi!
Slacker and Steve messed up big time. It was a miracle they got to do their show. They were talking about first dates and it started out with Italian restaurant chains and were poking fun at certain restaurants. They start thrash talking and saying they would never go to this restaurant. Little did they know that the higher up was sitting in the lobby right next to them wanting to advertise with the radio station.

Slacker said it was everyone’s fault. He is very snobby about his food, and his win and claims they were just trying to make each other laugh. Slacker said the most a person wants to stick their foot in their mouths are the people that ask a woman when she’s due, and she’s not pregnant. He had a story about asking a girl if she had her tongue pierced, but she really had a speech impediment. Yikes!

Steve said they could pick any restaurant to thrash, and they had to choose that one at that particular time. They laugh about it now because they joke they’re on “probation.”

Have you ever wanted to stick your foot in mouth and it was too late?

I was just joking around with my friends and were talking in a certain accent and doing certain mannerisms to add some humor to it. My principal walked by and said his son was mentally challenged and he says, “What if told you my son talks just like that?” I was so embarrassed. I felt so bad. Oops.

Pranks
Yi!
Who knew that George Clooney was a prankster? Apparently he loves to prank people on the set of his movies, like co-star Matt Damon. Clooney would take Damon's pants and get them altered shorter everyday to make him think he was gaining weight. He also found a painting in a dumpster and signed it to give as a gift to his friend, the friend hung it in his house for years!

Slacker thinks George is genius and very good looking, it is safe to say he is Slacker’s man crush.
Steve knew that George Clooney has always been a prankster. He used to fart in containers and close the lid really fast so that whoever would open it next would get a rank smell. He also got 2 pigs and labeled them 1 and 3,  let them go in his high school, but there was never a #3 pig and they had to shut the school down to look for a nonexistent pig.  Awesome.

What awesome prank have you pulled on someone?

For my high school prank we played Mario-Kart music through the intercom and we all had bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc. and we raced around our school. It was so awesome!

Bad Idea
Yi!

Kids are always getting into trouble and playing pranks, but this one led to a house fire in Dora, Alabama. Some kids toilet-papered a house and the owner’s son was cleaning it up when he saw some was stuck in the tree. They had the bright idea of lighting the toilet paper on fire to get it down when a piece fell into the yard and set their grass on fire. The fire met the grill’s propane tank catching the house on fire destroying everything!

Slacker thinks this person is so stupid. Yes, the idea sounded brilliant but really? Think about it, there’s TOILET PAPER, in a TREE, that is FLAMABLE. Hello, that’s disaster waiting to happen. Baaaaad idea. Growing up, Slacker had ridges in the driveway and snow would get packed in there, so he got his dad’s blow torch and taped it to a shovel so it would melt the snow. The shovel was plastic and it melted the shovel too. Yeah, baaaad idea. He said on paper, it looked good.

Steve was laughing at this moron. He made fun of Slacker for the blow torch bit and would have never done something that stupid in his life.

What was your really bad idea that seemed really good?

When I was young, my friend had a giant trampoline n her back yard and we loved to jump on it. So my friend and I were rebels and wanted to jump off the trees and fences onto it and just fly into the air. So I proceeded to jump from the tree and I flew back in the air and hit a branch so hard in the head I thought I had a concussion. We should’ve thought about that beforehand.

OPP: Fly in Date
Yi!

Yi guys! I’ve heard you talk about online dating before and I need some advice. I met a guy on a dating site and we hit it off. We exchanged phone numbers and had many nights that we talked until the sun was coming up. We've skyped and I know that it's really him in his pictures. I like him a lot and I know there is chemistry between us, but he lives on the other side of the country. He’s asked me to fly out to see him and spend a week getting to know each other in person. He offered to pay for the flight and said he will get me a hotel room so I feel safe. I was hesitant at first, but the more I think about it the more I want to do it. You never know where you are going to find love and I'm tired of being alone. What should I do?
Tara

Slacker did something similar and he was dating a girl that lived across the country and he put her up in a hotel. But he said she was indebted to him. Slacker went on dates with this woman and once they were going to have relations she told him she had an STD… so it made it really awkward. So he sent her packing and put her on a flight back home. He says she needs to be careful. He is nervous that she is going to be in his comfort zone and knows where to bury a body.

Steve said once the man plays for everything like the flight and the hotel, then you must owe him something. He says she should bring money just in case stuff gets weird.

What do you think Tara should do?

I think she should do it, but she should tell her family what hotel she is staying at and his name and his address. If she doesn’t do it she’ll regret it.

GMD: Sell the Farm
Yi!

Two sister's relationship might end in disaster in today's Great Mate Debate! Taylor needs medical work done and wants to sell the family farm to get money for her surgery. The problem is that their dad died and left them the farm to do his daughters. Jana, her sister, says no way to selling it because their dad worked his entire life for that farm.

Slacker thinks Jana is being mean to Taylor, and asked Jana if she wants to keep her dad’s land is she going to learn to farm? Slacker said that they both have half then who cares what Taylor buys with the money.

Steve said that their dad wouldn’t want any of this fighting. Steve was in a similar situation but he bought his sister out when it came to his situation. Jana isn’t able to buy Taylor out.

Whose side are you on?

This is hard because I have never been in this situation. I think that they should rent it out and profit off of the property. Neither of them is going to farm, or use it for themselves. So they should just figure that part out and stop fighting about it. Or hire lawyers and fight it out to the death…

Mandatory Marriage Class
Yi!

If you're in Colorado, you may have to add marriage class to the list of things you'll have to do before your wedding day. There's a ballot initiative there asking that couples complete 10 hours of mandatory marriage education class before being able to get married.(If it's your second wedding, you have to do 20 hours and for lucky number 3, you have to do 30 hours.) This is all part of the plan for the Kids Against Divorce group, which says that the point of all this is to "better prepare individuals going into marriage to fulfill their new roles as spouse and potentially as parent, to furthermore protect children given that marriage is the foundation of a family unit."

Both Slacker and Steve think it is a good idea. They feel like a lot of people are in lust and rush into marriage not fully knowing what they're getting into. A lot of people feel like they are ready for marriage but they haven't thought about all of the things that come into their lives down the road. A class like this can bring those issues up and make people think about what they're doing before they actually do it. Both Slacker and Steve think that people should have to take a class like this before having kids.

Lil D thinks it's a slippery slope and a bad idea. He says that everyone has the right to pursue happiness and they are letting an outside source decide what would be good for them and their lives.

Do you think marriage classes should be required before getting married?

Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told Ya
Yi!

Two college freshmen met and became friends at Tulane University before discovering that they're half-sisters through a common sperm-donor father. The 18 and 19-year-old girls were both from California, and first made contact when they were searching on Facebook for possible roommates. They later became fast friends when they met in person on the New Orleans campus and figured out that they were conceived by a donation from an anonymous donor. Neither thought much of it, even when they figured out that both of their donors were Colombian. However, after one of the girl's mother saw a photo of the other girl, she asked about her sperm donor's number and found out that they share a father.

Do you have a story so crazy that no one believes you when you tell it?

OPP: Dating Debt
Yi! Our OPP today comes from Tom:

Yi! I'm dating a woman and I'm not sure if I'm going to take the relationship to the next level because she's $30k in credit card debt. She's everything I could want in a mate, but she's got lots of debt baggage. If it was college loan debt, somehow that would be more bearable but this is just spending on stuff she obviously couldn't afford. She's made it known that she will always be the one responsible for the debt and won't ever put it on me if we get married. She’s also told me that she made bad decisions when she was younger and has matured and is smarter with money now. Am I the only one who would be scared? Do you shy away from relationships with people who are in a lot of debt?
Tom

Steve says that marriage is the only institution someone can enter a pauper and leave a prince or princess. He thinks that Tom needs to run now because he feels that Tom's girlfriend is just using him as a way to unload her debt. Steve can't understand how anyone can love another person so much that they are willing to take on a debt like that.

Slacker said that when you love someone you find a way to make things work. Chances are that Tom can afford his lifestyle already, so why not move forward and continue to pay for himself and let her work on clearing her debt.

Do you think Tom should be wary of being in a relationship with a woman that has so much debt?

Scammed
Yi!

A 66-year-old woman was conned after she befriended a Nigerian man who claimed to be "David Holmes," an Irish citizen working on a Scottish oilrig. He used a picture he said was of him but was actually an image of a male model he downloaded from the Internet. There were even phone calls and he didn't seem to have a Nigerian accent. He sent her flowers. But they never met in person. The district attorney's office later found out the man was living in Nigeria, which is "a hot bed of online scams." He convinced the woman to wire him $300,000 as a loan for his oil business, with most of the money coming from her retirement account and funds she got after refinancing her home. A Nigerian man was arrested for committing fraud but he wasn't the actual scammer. The thief actually sent the Nigerian to a bank in Turkey to pick up the money, where he was arrested. Luckily the victim was able to get back $200,000 from a bank in Turkey. She has only a "1 percent" chance of recovering the remaining $300,000 because "it's just impossible to track down" and federal authorities don't get involved in losses below $1 million.

Slacker thinks he may have recently been the victim of a scam related to the Target fiasco. Steve was once scammed by the guys that go around selling speakers out of the back of their van.

Have you ever fallen victim to a scam?

I can't believe I wore _____.
Yi!

There is a new fashion trend that is sweeping the nation, or is it? Yes, they are called Meggings; leggings for men. Two men in Chicago launched "Meggins Man Wear" that are sold for $29.95. Fashion trends change yearly.

Slacker says he’ll buy Steve a bunch of them since he loves them. He said he wore something similar when he was in the band; t was like ‘jeggings,’ but he called them stretch jeans. Steve wants the biker looking ones and Slacker is going to get them for Steve and make him wear them in two months. Slacker questions the fashion statement where everyone
was wearing neon pink and green workout stuff in the early 90’s.

Steve thinks they’re the greatest things ever and that it makes men looks like super heroes. Eventually, he says he’ll wear them and hoist them up and look awesome like Mr. Incredible.He can't believe he used to wear camo pants.

What is something you can’t believe you wore?

I can’t believe I wore 'Phat Farm' shoes. You know, the ones with the metal P on the shoe that were ghetto as heck!? Yeah, I though I was so cool.

Sabotaged
Yi!

A UK woman ruined her brother's most important day. She cancelled his wedding because she doesn't like his bride-to-be. She pretended to be her now sister-in-law and cancelled with the officials just 20 days before the big day. Her brother and his wife filed harassment against her and they were able to rebook their wedding.

Slacker has sabotaged. He went bowling as a family and both of his kids got to use the bumpers on the bowling lane so that the kids wouldn’t get gutter balls. He gave his daughter the ramp and a 14 lb ball and she starts beating Slacker in bowling getting strike after strike. He stopped helping his daughter so that she’d stop beating him. He claims she’s a three-year-old and doesn’t know better. So it is justified.

Steve said Slacker is a bastard for doing that to his daughter.

Have you ever sabotaged someone?

I caught my boyfriend cheating on me with a good friend of mine. So I spread a rumor about her that she had maggots growing in her mommy parts…. And it spread around not only the high school, but the entire town. Oops.

OPP:First Massage
Yi!

Today's OPP is about Jessica who went to her first massage and instead of leaving relaxed, she left confused. The massage therapist was a woman and she kept massaging Jessica's butt. She'd massage Jessica's back, and then move to the butt. She would massage Jessica's legs and move back to her butt. She doesn't know if this normal or if the woman massaging her just liked her butt.

Slacker makes fun of Steve for being a creepy massage guy. He has never had a massage. Slacker thinks there may be an ulterior motive. He thinks Jessica is weird and is a little confused because she’s not complaining about the woman touching her butt, so he thinks she likes it. And if she likes it, then just go back.

Steve loves massages. At first it was for pain, and not pleasure. He said they never touched his butt.  He asks Jessica if she asked the woman to stop massaging her and she said she didn’t tell the massage therapist to stop.

Is this normal?

I’ve gotten a massage and it was a guy that was massaging me, but he was very careful not to touch my butt that much. I mean it did tickle and I would flinch, but even then he didn’t touch it that often. I don’t think this is normal.

Let's Learn
Yi!

Did you know that graham crackers were first invented to curb lust and sexual desire?? Back in the 1830's Sylvester Graham, an evangelical minister believed that the greatest health concern facing Americans was rampant sexual desire. He believed a boring diet would suppress these urges, so he made his own sugarless creation calling it Graham bread.

Slacker grew up poor, but all he would eat was graham crackers and dunk them in milk. His mom would frost graham crackers with her homemade chocolate frosting and he loved it. Slacker asks all listeners of the show to stop by the grocery store and get a box of them and experiment with them. He asks you eat one and see if you are ready for relations or if it makes you tired and not want to have relations.

Steve says let’s learn!!!

What interesting facts do you have rattling around in your brain that we should know?

Did you know that elephants stay together in their families for their entire lives? Mama elephant, Daddy elephant, and the babies, even Grandma, Grandpa, and so on.  And when one dies, they mourn like humans and bury their dead. Even if it takes days to bury them, they will. Very interesting stuff. And touching.

Open Line Confessional
Yi!

Steve has a big confession to make to a girl he recently broke it off with. The reason he broke it off is because he found out that he also slept with her mom years ago. Scandalous!

Lil D also felt the need to come clean. A few years ago the show was doing an event together, and while they were inside, someone tore the driver's side mirror off Slacker's brand new car. He was really upset and didn't understand why anyone would do something like that. Lil D confessed he was the one that damaged Slacker's car. He was carrying some boxes into the event and had to hurry across the street. As he was running, he hit Slacker's mirror with one of the boxes. He didn't want to tell Slacker because he hadn't technically been hired yet, and he didn't want to lose the job.

It's time for you to come clean. What do you want to confess?

OPP: Cheated a Long Time Ago
Yi!

Brittney joined us on the air today to share her OPP. 6 years ago, she cheated on her husband. She admitted her mistake to him and promised it would never happen again...which it hasn't. Her problem is her husband still makes her feel guilty for it and never has any trust for her. If she is 5 minutes late leaving work, he texts her to find out why. He has to know who she is with at every moment of the day. She once even caught him checking in on her while she was at a dinner with co-workers. She feels like she has paid for her mistake and wants to move forward in their relationship.

How does she get her husband to stop living in the past and realize she made one mistake?

Bluff Slacker and Steve
Yi!

We think we are pretty good at detecting a lie. We want you to tell us 2 stories, 1 real and 1 fake, and we'll try to decide which one is the lie.

Lil D gave us an example to start out:
#1. While Lil D was in utero, Tina Turner kissed his mom's belly and told her she was going to have a beautiful baby boy. Tina Turner was right.
#2. Lil D's great-uncle was a painter and was commissioned to paint the presidential portrait of Jimmy Carter.

Steve said #2 was the lie, and Slacker was sure it was #1. Turns out Steve is the better lie detector.

Can you bluff Slacker & Steve?

Cheap Skates
Yi!

Despite making $5 million a year coaching the 49ers, Jim Harbaugh refuses to wear anything but $8 khakis from Walmart to the games. A recent interview with Harbaugh's wife revealed that she tries to throw the khakis away, but Jim just buys more. Nothing will stop him from being this cheap.

Slacker thinks that this coach looks like he’s crazy. He looks like a normal guy and he would never even know he was a football coach if he saw him on the street. This man is so cheap. If Slacker made $5 million you’d never catch him in those khakis. He saw a man go from pump to pump at a gas station and fill up a portable gas can. Drip by drip trying to fill it up. Cheap skate!

Steve said that coaches even get shoe endorsements and he just reuses other people’s cleats. Crazy!

What makes you a cheap skate?

I only buy my Nike shoes from the outlet store because I refuse to buy expensive shoes; same quality, just cheaper price. I’m not cheap, I just shop smarter!

Animal Encunters
Yi!

Yi! A woman in London woke up to something quite unusual... A squirrel entered her home through the chimney and tore up her curtains, sofa, cushions, and carpet that all equaled up to $10,000 in damage. The damage hit her really hard because she chose all those furnishings with her late husband, but never knew a squirrel could ruin so much!

Slacker thinks Go-Pros are the greatest thing to ever be invented because he saw a guy get attacked by a wild boar and it was the funniest thing he has ever seen. Slacker hates horses ever since he couldn’t ride it properly and he got bucked off.

Steve recalls last year a video he saw of a man getting attacked by an antelope while riding his bike.

Have you ever had an insane animal encounter?

I have had several encounters with animals, but the most intense attack was when a pit bull flew down the street after my dog and I. My dog saved my life—no doubt.

OPP: Get Rid of the Bed
Yi!

Yi! I am divorced and have been dating Aviva for four months. She is demanding I get a new bed because we are sleeping on my marital bed. She refuses to sleep on the bed because my ex slept there and the bed has 'memories'. I think she's crazy. I can't afford a new bed. She says not buying one is disrespectful to her. Who's right - me or her?
Connor

Slacker says if Connor breaks up with Aviva that would mean he needs to buy a new bed every time he got a new girlfriend. He thinks that if it was a piece of jewelry then yes get rid of it. But not a bed.  If you have to get rid of the mattress, then he needs to get rid of the entire bed, head board and everything because they are part of the relations too.

Steve said that yes, she is uncomfortable, but beds are not cheap. You can get rid of the mattresses all you want, but the memories are still in his head. He said that if this was happening to him, then he would have to get rid of the car, tables, everything.

Whose side are you on?

Connor's completely. I am dating a divorced man who kept the bed from the divorce and I think Connor’s girlfriend is crazy. That is just insecurity screaming out. A bed is a bed, it doesn’t hold anything. It’s an object. Not a person.

GMD: Boycotting a Business
Yi!

If you’re significant other has an issue with a service of some sort and never wants to give them her business again, you shouldn’t either right? Well, that’s what Emma thinks. A dry cleaner ruined a really expensive dress of hers and she doesn’t want her, or her husband to give him their business. But Noah likes this dry cleaner because they’ve known him for ever and he’s convenient.

Slacker has been through something similar. Both Slacker and Steve think if the dry cleaner ruined it, he should pay for it. There’s no sign saying the dry cleaners are responsible for damaged or lost clothes.  Slacker thinks that Noah has to have his wife’s back and defend her honor.

Steve said the Emma’s pain is inconvenient for Noah.  He said that when he brings his clothes to a dry cleaner, he inspects the clothes before he leaves so that he’s satisfied. Steve said that Noah should be able to tell his wife she’s wrong for wanting to leave the dry cleaner. He made a mistake now move on.

Whose side are you on?

I am 100 percent on Emma’s side. Her dress is expensive, she only wore it once, and if they ruined it, they need to pay for it. That is ridiculous if he doesn’t. She’s not going to go buy a new one, and didn’t even apologize! I would be outraged.

Accidental Good News
Yi!

A CNN reporter made a major gaffe when he told the Georgia store owner who sold one of the winning lottery tickets to the big $648 million Mega Millions jackpot that she, too, would become a millionaire. Young Soo Lee, a 58-year-old Korean immigrant who came to the United States in 1980, owns the Gateway newsstand in Buckhead, Ga., just north of Atlanta, where one of the two winning Mega Millions tickets was sold.

"Now you know by selling the winning ticket there's also prize money for you," CNN's Martin Savidge told Lee Wednesday.

"I know, but I don't know how much," she said. "Long time ago, I heard it's $25,000."

"Let me tell you, it's a lot more than $25,000," Savidge said. "It's about $1 million that you get."

"Really?" she gasped, clutching her chest. "Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I never had so much money!"

One problem: Lee won't be receiving any money at all. According to NBC News, Georgia lottery rules don’t allow for any retailer payout. Retailers get only a flat 6 percent commission on the sales of the $1 tickets themselves, but no bonus for a winning ticket.

Whoops!

Have you ever given or received good news only to find out that it wasn't true?

Claim to Fame
Yi!

A 35-year-old New York man, Zack Hample, has spent the last 32 years of his life adding to his rubber band ball that now weighs over 250 pounds. The ball is made up of over 5,000 rubber bands. Whenever people ask him about his achievement he assures them he isn't a virgin, has a job and he won't go to the top of his roof to push it off. Even though the rubber band ball isn't a record, he does have the record for collecting the most balls at sporting events with 5,800.

Also, a guy from Reddit, known as TBoneTheOriginal took to the web over the weekend to share his personal anatomical anomaly… he has no ass crack. Why? Here's what he said: "This happened because of severe pilonidal cysts. I've had multiple surgeries on it, and instead of the usual procedure which involves letting it heal, mine was so bad that a plastic surgeon had to close it up. But they keep coming back, and it'll probably just get worse as I age."

What is your claim to fame?

OPP: Cut Mom Off
Yi! Today's OPP is from Samantha:

Yi! I am writing an OPP that I hope to get some sound advice on. My mom's boyfriend, who was 29 years younger than her, comitted suicide in a condo I used to own that I was renting to them. Needless to say, this was an emotional time for my mom and I wanted to be there for her as much as possible. So, I allowed her to move in with me for 6 months and then helped her to rent an apartment (I actually signed the lease and paid the deposit). She has had some odd jobs but over the past 2 years I have helped her a lot financially and it has put me behind on my own bills. To add insult to injury, she has had my older brother living in the apartment who is an alcoholic. I just gave her $300 to help put toward her rent and living expenses less than a week ago and she texted me while I was at work today and said "I hope you're doing well, can I borrow some money." I am ready to cut her off and tell her to never call me for money again but I don't want to see her homeless. The only time she reaches out to me is for money and the whole situation is keeping me up at night! Please help me decide what to do.
Thanks,
Samantha

How does Samantha tell her mom that she can no longer help her?

Embarrassing Parents
Yi!

We found a list of 20 times your parents embarrassed you in high school. They are:
1. When they volunteered to chaperone the school dance. And then danced.
2. When they walked into your dressing room at the mall.
3. When they talked to your crush.
4. When they discussed the details of your puberty with literally everyone.
5. When they gave you a kiss before dropping you off at school.
6. When they got way too into your sporting events.
7. When they showed up outside of your classroom to drop off your lunch.
8. When they decided to host the prom after party.
9. When they fussed over who you were dating.
10. When they gave you "the talk."
11. When they insisted on making bad jokes when a sex scene came on TV.
12. When they called your friends to find out where you were because you were ten minutes late getting home.
13. When they wore questionable outfits in public.
14. When they yelled at one of your friends.
15. When they tried to be the "cool mom."
16. Or the "cool dad."
17. When they called your friend a bad influence. In front of your friend.
18. When they had a few too many drinks and proceeded to do just about anything around you.
19. When they took pictures of you constantly.
20. And worst of all, when they spoke (or generally made any noise at all).

We know you can top these. What's the worst thing your parents did to embarrass you?

Quotes
Yi!

Everyone in their life has gotten movie or song quote wrong, or even a random quote. Some people more than others, but what better way to break the ice with someone telling you that you’ve been saying that quote wrong for ever.
Common misquotes:

1. “Me, Tarzan. You, Jane.” Is actually, “Tarzan. Jane. Tarzan. Jane.”

2. “Mirror Mirror on the Wall” is actually, “Magic Mirror on the wall”

3.  "Do you feel lucky, Punk?" from Dirty Harry is actually, "You've got to ask yourself one question. 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

Slacker said his misquotes “Luke I am your father,” when the quote is just “No, I am your father” from Star Wars. He gives Steve crap for misquoting songs all the time. Especially the song “White Winged Dove” by Stevie Knicks, when he thought it was “One Dinged Dove.” His movie quote he lives by is “You get busy livin’ or you get busy dyin’.”

Steve misquotes songs all the time. He thought Mackelmore’s song said, “The ceiling can’t hold up.” When it really is, “The ceiling can’t hold us.”


What songs and movies do you always misquote?

I always misquote Step Brothers. I always think I have them right, but I just chop ‘em up and ruin them. I live my life by this quote, “I love you, Jenny!” I just say it all the time. Forest Gump is a legend and he wasn’t even real.

Lodged
Yi!

A man in Australia went to the doctor because it had an awful pain in his ear. He thought there may have been a spider, so he used a vacuum cleaner to try and get it out. He went to the hospital and the doctor told him it was a bug and tried coaxing it out with olive oil. The bug dug deeper into his ear and the doctor had to tweeze it out. It turns out it was a huge cockroach. The doctor told the man that it was the biggest bug he has ever had to remove, which means this must happen a lot. Gross!  

Slacker said that if he had a bug stuck in his ear he would submerge his head in water to make it come out. He questions this man because of how heavy he must have been sleeping by not feeling a cockroach crawling into his ear.

Steve said if he had a bug lodged in his ear then he would head bang like Will Ferrell in Night at the Roxbury.

Have you ever gotten something lodged in your body?

I got a fish hook stuck in my lip when my brother went to cast the line! It was awful!

OPP: Hot for Teacher
Yi!
Yi! I had a teacher that was amazingly hot. We made all sorts of eye contact during class. She even held me after class to talk. I have a good feeling that she really liked me. I just recently graduated college and want to reach out to her. Do you guys think that she would go out with me?
Graham

Slacker thinks it is a bad idea. Both Slacker and Steve are confused if the teacher was from high school or college. Slacker thinks that if she was a college professor then game on. But if she’s from high school, this guy is a tool. Slacker thinks this guy was just fantasizing. He questions how many women get caught sleeping with a student.  We hear about it in the news all the time.

Steve has respect for this guy. He doesn’t understand why this guy can’t like his teacher. If it isn’t creepy and a not high school teacher, Steve thinks he should go for it.

What should Graham do?

I think that he should still go out and look for her, see if she’s taken or not and just try. Because if he doesn’t, he will regret not looking her up!

Relationship Revenge
Yi!

Hell hath no fury on a woman scorned. A University of Alabama Frat Bro came home to wonderful surprise in his bedroom after he switched girls at a party. He went to the party with a sorority girl, but took another one home. The original girl was so scorned that she took a number two on the chair is his bedroom and used his comforter to wipe.

Slacker thinks this girl is disgusting. He thinks that women are more susceptible to getting revenge on a person more than men will.

Steve thinks this girl is hilarious. This is definitely a new form of revenge. Steve had revenge done on him. A woman hacked his email and she tried getting Slacker involved by saying
Steve cheated on her with Slacker’s wife. She tried destroying not only his life, but anyone involving with Steve.

What relationship revenge have you endured?

I told my ex-roommates mother that she was a stripper and was addicted cocaine because she stole hundreds of dollars from me. Her mom disowned her. Whoops.

You're Doing it Wrong
Yi!

The Mayor of New York City might be impeached for eating his pizza the wrong way! He was caught in a pizzeria eating it with a fork and knife! Very Un-New York of him. Or what about
the lady that wets the toilet paper and then uses it? Who does that?!

Slacker uses Listerine before he brushes his teeth and Steve thinks that’s wrong. Slacker also doesn’t pull up to the further pump at a gas station and Steve hates people like that. Slacker asked how did the mayor get elected with eating pizza like this?

Steve eats spaghetti with a spoon and it drives Slacker nuts. He thinks this Mayor is an idiot for doing that in public. He asked Slacker how he washes his coat; zipped up? Or unzipped?
Slacker replied it doesn’t matter. Steve was infuriated. He said Slacker was doing it wrong. It has to be unzipped when washing it.

What is something that you do wrong and it drives other people crazy?
I use nail polish remover to cover my cords to keep my dog from chewing my cords. My mother gets very annoyed with me because it is not being used for the right purpose. Oh well.

Drunk or Kid?
Yi!
It’s time for another round of our favorite game: Drunk or Kid! Tell us your story about an injury or just something plain stupid and Slacker and Steve will guess if you were drunk or a kid!

Lil’ D: “I am broke. So, we wait for this convenient store to clear out and rob this lady for her lottery tickets. My friend holds the lady down, and I jump the counter and take the tickets for some snacks.”
Slacker: Drunk
 Steve: Kid
Answer: Kid-- The best part was that Lil’ D’s accomplice was his mom!

#1 Marty: “I jump up to spike the ball and a dog ran under my feet; I slip and end up getting a concussion.”
Slacker: Kid.
Steve: Drunk.
Answer: Drunk- Marty is always drunk.

#2 Katie: “My friend and I were bored and we made a mud pool in the living room. We dug up the back yard and brought the dirt in, then we mud wrestled.”
Slacker: Kid. Drunks don’t damage their own houses.
Steve: Drunk. They wouldn’t be strong enough as kids to get all the dirt in.
Answer: Drunk—Yikes.

#3 Kevin “I am hanging out with my buddies and I had a splinter that got infected, so we took a razor and we cut it out and it cut my finger to the bone. I got stitches.”
Slacker: Kid.
Steve: Drunk.
Answer: Kid- He was 12 years old. Sliced way too deep.

#4 Jenna: “I was hanging with friends, we were looking to party, and my bf suggested we throw a party in a friend’s house. My bf was taken away in a cop car.”
Slacker: Drunk.
Steve: Kid.
Answer: Kid. – 7th grade.

#5 Josh:  “It was my birthday and someone insisted they blow out my candles. They were relit and I was upset, so I stormed out of the house. The candles lit the curtains on fire, everything was on fire.”
Slacker: Drunk
Steve: Kid
Answer: Drunk. 25th birthday.

Steve won!

OPP: Rough Love
Yi!

Today’s O.P.P. is from Johnathan. He says his wife is unhappy and wants him to be more dominant in the bedroom. He is uncomfortable with this because he doesn’t want to treat her like a random girl he met at the bar. They have tried what she wants, and she is still unhappy. He fears his wife of two children is going to leave him.

Slacker and Steve were both confused because of why this was happening. There was a cancer scare and they have come to the conclusion that it is because she is the mother of his children, and she was really sick. He doesn’t want to hurt his wife. They think he is an amazing guy and he doesn’t want to treat his wife like a tramp, but she wants to be treated this way. Slacker thinks he needs to disconnect her as two different people: a mom, and his wife that wants to get rough.

Steve thought that once a woman became a mother she wants to just stay as the respected mom she is and not get a little rough in the bedroom.

What advice can you give Johnathan?  

I think he can get a little more rough if he maybe drank a little before relations. Or they can watch some videos together or something. Spice it up a little. Role play where she needs to be “punished.” If you have a good imagination and some time on your hands, I am sure he can get it done!

A 28-year-old woman in Orlando was caught drunk on a stranger’s porch when she was supposed to be babysitting a two-year-old. She claimed it was her birthday and she wanted to get drunk. The two-year-old was found in wet shorts and a t-shirt in 39 degree weather. She ended up going to jail.

A couple went to jail after they were watching their nephew. They forced him to smoke dope and drink alcohol, and even made him get behind the wheel even though he is not of age to drive. They both landed themselves in jail with child abuse charges against them.

Slacker said that one memory he had was when he was young was that his older brother bought a tub of marsh mellow cream and cookie dough and they sat and watched horrifying movies and eating this junk. When his parents came home both him, and his brother were puking their brains out and he will never eat cookies to this day.

Steve thinks it is the dad’s fault for not screening the baby sitter for the Orlando story. As far as the aunt and uncle go, Steve thinks that there was no problem (joking of course.) He wanted to party when he was 13. He thinks this aunt and uncle are cool. The kid is the crazy one.

How horrible was your babysitter?

When I was twelve, I baby sat this new born baby and was very bored, so my girlfriend and I decided to prank call people. We got a call back from a woman saying we needed to stop harassing her daughter over the phone and asking her personal questions. The weird thing was that we didn’t prank call any girls. We prank called boys. Not that horrible. But hey, still scary for me!

I'm Addicted to ___
Yi!

A Las Vegas man is so addicted to money that he enters paid clinical trials to make cash, including having a testicle removed for $35,000. He's been volunteering in medical studies for the past six years and gets free medical checkups, saving himself over $750 a year. His next experiment includes getting one of his testicles removed with an artificial one and was paid about $35,000 for the surgery. His story is being told in full on TLC's Extreme Cheapskates.

Another story of addiction in the news, On tonight's episode of TLC's "My Strange Addiction", a 45-year-old woman admits she wants to have her breasts enhanced to a QQQ size. The woman currently has MMM sized breasts. The former showgirl had her first boob job 20 years ago and has spent a total of $250,000 to enhance her chest. She has admitted to losing stuff in her cleavage. She had to buy a bigger phone because she lost the other one in her bra.

What weird thing are you addicted to?

My Life is White Trash News Flash
Yi!

A 32-year-old Orlando man has been fined over $130,000 because of his extremely messy yard. He says his motto "is to grow life and love" while taking a cue from a Japanese farmer/philosopher who pushed for natural farming. His neighbors point out that his yard is not a farm, and it's not zoned for it. And his yard is ugly. It's covered in tree stumps, weeds, tall grass, un-pruned fruit and veggie plants, and even trash. It's hurting property values in his neighborhood and the neighbors have had enough.
He's been fined over $130,000 this year, but he's appealing to the Florida Supreme Court to have a lower court's decision upholding the fines overturned.

Also, as the Los Angeles Lakers were losing yet another game at home on Sunday, the action on the court was nothing compared to the action inside one of the Staples Center's bathrooms. Witnesses heard a lot of moaning and groaning coming from inside one of the ladies' rooms. They were so disgusted they called for security who went in and busted up a couple as they were in the middle of their tryst. According to one witness, "Everyone in the bathroom could hear them. It was like they did not care!” The couple laughed as they were escorted out. These days, it seems this is the only type of scoring going on during Lakers games.

Look, we understand...you're a classy person. But hidden deep within, you have one thing that makes your life a little trashy. What makes your life White Trash News Flash?

OPP: No Relations With the Kids in the House
Yi! Today's OPP comes from David:

Yi! My wife refuses to have relations when the kids are in the house. I don’t think that I can take it anymore. I understand that you want to be careful, but why can’t we do it when they’re asleep? We have a lock on our door. I don’t know why she is so paranoid. How do I get her to relax?
David

Slacker thinks this is one of the best examples of what OPP is all about. While it sounds absurd, he truly believes that there are other women out there that feel the way David's wife does. Slacker said that he thinks it is a little strange that they have more than one kid and she still acts this way. He said a lot of first time parents make grandiose plans to raise their child using the best parenting techniques imaginable, but it all falls apart by the time the second kid comes along.  

Steve said that he has heard of people that go for a while without relations after giving birth. He can understand but still thinks David's wife is crazy.

How can David get his wife to relax about it?

Embarrassing 911
Yi!

There are a lot of stories in the news recently about people having to call 911 for ridiculous things!
 
#1 London firefighters rescued a woman, who became stuck between a toilet and a wall in a nightclub. Fireman Mick Flanagan tells the Mirror, "We had a lady who had fallen between a toilet and a wall and we had to dismantle the toilet. It was a bit comic at the time because she was a bit tipsy and laughing. We just unbolted the toilet which gave her and us space to help her up. Thankfully she wasn't injured."

#2 Morris Reynolds' Lutz, Florida neighbors recently called the police on him because he was naked and jumping up and down in front of his home. He battled cops, who struggled to cuff him. Morris was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer with violence. He gave no reason for his behavior.

#3 An 11-year-old Salt Lake City girl recently got stuck inside a washing machine. She was playing hide-and-seek with her cousins when she got stuck. The girl's mother called 911 because she was curled up so tight that her legs were temporarily paralyzed. The girl regained the use of her legs once she was freed.

#4 A Georgia woman sat down in a Home Depot restroom and couldn't get back up.  Some one had smeared super glue over the seat.  She didn't look or check the seat before sitting down.  Police and fire rescue had to cut the bolts off of the toilet to rescue her.

What's the most bizarre thing you've ever had to call 911 for?

Is ADHD Real?
Yi!

Children are getting diagnosed with ADHD every single day. But neurologists have a huge problem with this because they think kids are being misdiagnosed. Children are naturally hyper and have tons of energy, but doctors prescribe them Ritalin, which causes many issues. It causes liver damage, suicidal thoughts, and suppresses puberty.

Slacker doesn’t think this is as real as people make it out to be. He thinks children are always going to be crazy and just be kids. They are going to be messy—every kid is at some point. I am a parent and there are days my wife and I struggle but that doesn’t mean they have ADHD. He thinks we live in a world where we want answers and we want them fast, so people go to prescription drugs.

Steve says when he was young as a kid no one had ADHD. Steve says that there are stories out there where kids take the medicine and they feel like their lives are terrible. He dates single moms and he has never met a mom where her child has ADHD. They’re like normal kids.

Do you think ADHD is real?

I think that there is such a thing as hyper behavior, but I don’t think people should be drugging up their kids. If they act up-- discipline them.  If they can’t concentrate—change their diet, let them get some more sleep. Every kid goes through this stuff.  I did. And guess what? I don’t have ADHD.

Busted
Yi!

Michael  Swartz was caught cheating in New York because he had to crash land his airplane on a major expressway. News crews arrived on scene and interviewed Swartz and the 2 females with him: his mistress and her daughter.

Both Slacker and Steve think this guy is an idiot. It’s very strange he was flying with the mistress and the daughter. Slacker used to be a retail store manager and he knew a person that was selling merchandise on the side. He bagged up a bunch of stuff and say he was taking out the garbage. He would hide it out by the dumpsters. He got caught because rat exterminators found the bag of clothes.

Steve says he never gets busted for anything he's done because he never gets caught.

Have you ever been busted like this?


I have never been caught cheating—ever. This is like a scene from a movie. Almost unreal. I just feel bad for his wife. Poor woman.  The most I’ve ever cheated on was my math test in high school.

OPP He Makes More
Yi! Today's OPP is from Stephanie:

Yi! I just started dating a guy a few years older than me. He has a great job, makes more money than I do, and is fairly established in life. We always go out to eat and he still expects me to pay half of the check. I don't think that's fair. I think he should pick up more of the check because he can afford it and he picks the restaurant most of the time. That's fair right?
Stephanie
 
Slacker and Steve both think that this is everyone in the dating world’s argument. They are both old fashioned and when they ask a woman out on a date then they are definitely paying.  They both think it is just an awkward conversation to have, especially a girl bringing it up. Slacker thinks that a man living in the world where a man asks a girl to help him pay is so wrong.

Steve thinks that she should just bring it up to him passive aggressively and just tell him she can’t keep up with him and the restaurants he chooses.

We actually lied...this OPP is from a guy named Steven, not a girl named Stephanie. His girlfriend is the one that makes more and he can't afford to wine and dine on her level.

Do you think because one person makes more money than the other that they have to pay the tab? Does the fact it is from a guy talking about his girlfriend change anything for you?

I think that he can help with the tip or something when it comes to eating out. Or don’t eat out and eat at one of your houses. It is all a compromise. If she makes more money, then yes she should pay more, but once in awhile he can help! Or don't dine out.

Online Dating
Yi!

We all know online dating is a new fun way to meet people, but it’s not always fun. A man was robbed and his car stolen after meeting a woman on an online dating website. She and her two male friends beat the man horribly and forced him to get cash from an ATM. The man called the police and told them about the ordeal and the 3 perpetrators were arrested. Police say they have probably done something like this before.

Slacker thinks that one day the entire world will go to online dating. “Farmers Only,” the dating website, is quite interesting to Slacker. He questions what qualifies people to browse the website. He thinks there a sleazy people out there that are predators and prey on online daters. He knows that there are people out there that really do find love, but there really are criminals that use these tools to find people to hurt, whether it’s robbing them, raping them, whatever.

Steve says it is not the meeting a bar that makes you a loser anymore. It is online dating. Steve questions people on Christian Mingle. How do you prove you’re a Christian?

What’s the worst online dating experience you’ve ever had?

I have never used online dating, and I never will. I just don’t trust it. I think people create fake profiles just to hurt people and cause trouble. The internet is a dangerous place and I refuse to do it.

Pathetic Pickup Attempts
Yi!
A car salesman was fired for drawing a penis on his business card that he gave to a woman. He ended up getting fired and is now in a court battle with the company over the entire dispute.

What ridiculous pick up lines have you heard/ used?

Slacker says it's mostly men that do stupid pick up lines. The guy that got the business cards made with something along the lines of "Your beauty is beyond what my eyes can grasp. Life is hard. Spend it with me." Slacker thinks his guy is such a creep and a D-bag. He wants to make his own cards as a joke!

Steve said the best ever pick up line is when you compliment a woman's blouse and just walk away. That will make her come up to you. Steve agrees with Slacker that this guys is a creep, but finds it hilarious that this kid would do this.

The worst pick up line that was delivered to me was when this guy just said "Girl, I like your style," looked me up and down and told me to do a spin for him. He was an idiot. No, I am not gonna twirl for you. Get a life.

Kid Damage
Yi!
A woman in China let her four-year-old son play with an old book and rip up the pages to keep him entertained. She left him by himself for an hour and continued to hear the sound of shredding. Once she came back into her bedroom she discovered her toddler had gotten ahold of their cash box and tore up all the cash in the box. It was $5,000! The family's entire life savings was torn to pieces in a matter of minutes. Kids do the darnest things!

What is the worst damage your kid has done?


Slacker and Steve both say this is adult damage. Slacker hates the fact that the kid was tearing up books. The serial number poilcy doesn't exist in China and there goes their savings. They think the parents are complete idiots. Slacker gave his kids a bunch of leggos to build a Star Wars Ship, the leggos scratched up their really expensive formal dining table.

I don't have kids, but I know that I was a terror for my mom to handle. The most damage I did was draw on our neighbors white Lexus with a Sharpie marker. Yikes!

OPP Disney Decorator
Yi!

Yi! My fiancé wants to decorate our kitchen after her favorite Disney movie "The little mermaid".  I think it's embarrassing enough that our bathroom is flowery, but I think this is where I draw the line. That movie stunk to begin with. Secondly, you're a grown woman. We're not having an imaginary friend tea party. It's time to grow up. How do I put a stop to this?
Adam

What should Adam do?

Slacker says Adam to have a little vito power. He needs to say no.Slacker says that everyone hangs out in the kitchen so it would be weird if it were decorated the way she wants.

Steve said "Why can't she have her girl room, like a man cave?" Adam's fiancee' has control over the kitchen. She is going to win the arguement. But Adam has to stick up for himself. There has to be a room where she stores her Disney stuff right?

The fact that this woman is serious about decorating her house in "Little Mermaid," is absolutely repulsive. You're how old? Plus, it's a little creepy. If anything the bathroom would have to be that decor, not the kitchen!

Pampered Pets
Yi!

Slacker helped a women set up a stroller in the airport only to find out that a child would not be going in it. She put her dog in the stroller instead. Talk about a pampered pet!

How do you spoil your pet?

Slacker thinks this is absolutley disgusting. He tried helping this woman and he felt bad for her so her set up the stroller and she put her dog in it. He was furious. Slacker then goes on to tell how the woman proceeded to talk to her poodle in a baby voice. He was annoyed and said the woman was pretentious. "If you're buying a Chicco stroller for your dog, then you are a D-Bag."

Steve says that the is truly awesome. "You gotta respect that!" Steve said Slacker is pretentious because he judges other people's strollers. "Stroller snob!"  If I had the money to do that, I would.

I think this woman is delussional and absolutely ridiculous. I have a dog that I adore, but I would never put her in a stroller. I work at a doggy day care and dogs don't want to be strollered around. They are curious and want to walk around and smell stuff. Guaranteed this woman's dog hates her. The only way I spoil my dog is she gets table scraps once in awhile.

Memorabilia
Yi!

A cleaning crew discovered that some backings to the seats were missing after an intense Vikings football game in Minnesota.The only thing to conculde was that the fans stole the seat backs and now have them for a souvenir. It just makes you wonder what they're going to do with that memoribilia... hang it on thier wall?

What weird memorabilia do you have?

Slacker has known people that have stolen stuff off of movie sets. But how fat does a person have to be to get away with walking out with a seat?! He almost got a ton of props from a website when Breaking Bad ended. He stole set lists from shows he went to when he first started in radio.

Steve says he doesnt really have anything. I have an umbrella from Singing in the Rain, but it's not the real one. Steve says anything with the presidential seal on it like coasters and mugs are illegal to sell, so don't even try it.

 I have never gotten memorabilia from a place, but I did get sweat on me from the lead singer of Five Finger Death Punch. It's not that great, and was actually pretty gross. But hey, it's something.

Gets Your Goat
Yi!
It is those little things that just bug us that drive us absolutely insane. It's things like biting the fork, when people are always late, or when people leave their blinker on forever and never get over in to your lane.

What gets your goat?

Slacker says the most annoying thing when the bed sheets coming off the corner of the bed when you're trying to put them on. Another one Slacker hates is when people in another country are telling me to listen to music that came out in the 90's, or when the car's seatbelt locks you in place. "So annoying!"

What gets my goat is when people bite their fork--it literally hurts my teeth and sends shivers up my spine! Or when people walk too slow. I am a fast paced person, so you better keep up. No, being stuck behind a person that walks slow, especially in the mall, really gets my goat. Move!

O.P.P. Back-up Plan
Yi!

Yi guys! I have been best friends with a guy since high school. When we were younger, we made an agreement that we would get married if we were both single when we turned 30. He just turned 30, my birthday is coming up in a few months and we're both single. He mentioned our agreement jokingly around his birthday and now I'm really thinking about it. We've been friends for so long and we both know everything about each other. What could be so bad about it? I know it sounds like a bad chick flick, but is there anyone else out there that has done something like this? Thanks!
Anna

What advice would you give Anna?

Slacker doesn't think this is a terrible idea. Who better to settle with, than your best friend? Slacker thinks that a lot of women hit their 30's and 40's and marry the first man who's nice to them. "I've made a pact with a person that when we got to a certain age we'd get married. But it never happened, obviously." He has done smaller pacts, but nothing like marriage. I believe I'm  always right, and zero percent of the population will have a story to relate to this."

Steve says that people settle. All the time. If the relations are terrible then leave that relationship. The guy she made a pact with, is fishing for the marriage. That's why he brought it up to her on his birthday.
 
I think she should date him first, duh! Marriage is a little fast. At least test it out, and if you're compatible then awesome, if not, move on.

G.M.D. New Year's Resolution
Yi!

New Year's Resolutions are supposed to better the year to come, but not in this case. Today's Great Mate Debate is about Chris who wants to give up drinking for their resolution together, but his wife Brittany doesn't want to because her work involves parties/ wining and dining clients, etc.

Who's side are you on?

Slacker- If Chris wanted to change his life he can any day of the year, but everyone does it on the new year. Couples do resolutions together all the time like losing weight, or cleaning up diets. This is something different now. He doesn't want her to hurt her life, or someone else coming home from one of these parties or dinners.

Steve-  Brittany claimed she's part of a "team" at work, but she's on a team with Chris too. He feels they were part of an intervention. But if Steve were handed a shot at a client party and didn't take the shot, he'd feel like the client would be offended.

I think that Brittany can stick with one drink per meal or party. They can compromise. She can easily tell the client "Hey, I need to stick to one drink. I'm driving home tonight." It's not hard.
