  Mon. 9/6/10 10:09am Marco D Argento:

Thank you so very much bob. If I heard another PSA about motorcycle safety or the longhorn beatle I would have strangled somebody!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:16am Parq:

Marco, I'm guessing that a PSA about longhorn beetles riding motorcycles would be what the Brits call right out.
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:19am bobw:

how many longhorn beetles does it take to kick start a harley electroglide?
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:19am Marco D Argento:

  Mon. 9/6/10 10:21am Marco D Argento:

  Mon. 9/6/10 10:23am Marco D Argento:

Bob? Play someone moving their bowels in the FMU toilet! But please no PSA's about the asian longhorn beatle!! I'm begging you!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:27am postmanpaul:

Hi Bob and 'fmu listeners - Bob, I would like to share this funny cycling proverb with you..."I can handle bars and cycle-paths, but I can't handle cars and psychopaths."
You have probably' heard it before, but its worth an airing don't you think?
For your poss' cycling info', over here in the UK our National cyclists' organisation is:
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:30am Marco D Argento:

Bob? I mean it! Have the toilet miked up and the next person to go in I want to hear it!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:31am Marco D Argento:

Make a PSA about the dangers of public toilets and how many germs and bacteria is residing on the toilet seat?
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:35am Marco D Argento:

Liz is probably fast asleep from yesterdays events.
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:36am Marco D Argento:

Liz is probably so hungover she doesn't know her own name:-)
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:37am bobw:

  Mon. 9/6/10 10:39am Marco D Argento:

Sorry:-( I'm being tortured by PSA's about beatles and motorcycles:-(:::::::
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:41am bobw:

actually, i was waiting for someone to post "POLO!"
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:44am Marco D Argento:

"help stop the Asian longhorn beatle from destroying Americas trees" OK gimmie a couple dozen cabs of RAID!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:46am Marco D Argento:

I'm going to get a giant can of "agent orange" and start spraying trees,I mean it!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:48am bobw:

doris day just rhymed "home a" and "diploma." i like that.
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:49am Marco D Argento:

"when riding a motorcycle always wear a helmet" a force field like the one star trek isn't going to help if that thing comes to a sudden stop!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:50am marq:

Our cat named Bob is 1 year old right now. Sheeba was too old to care about playing with him much, so we got a third cat and his name is Cooper. He is 4 years old. They all eat cat food. These cats all came with their names. even the one that died. His name was Honeyboy. He ate cat food, too. But not anymore.
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:51am Marco D Argento:

How far can a human being fly when a motorcycle going 90mph comes to a sudden stop? Answer: 20 feet
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:52am marq:

What if the human being stops? How far does the bike go?
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:53am bobw:

i like cats with odd names like "bob", "charles" and "susan". it's especially fun when you have to yell out something like, "susan! drop that mouse out of your mouth!" or "bob! stop peeing all over the carpet!"
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:54am Marco D Argento:

Answer: a motorcycle in motion remains in motion until it runs out of gas or hits an SUV
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:56am Marco D Argento:

My landlady loves cats she has 9 of them!
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:57am Marco D Argento:

They like to huddle in mass outside my door
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:57am marq:

Today is the last official day to wear white. But Boss Hog from the Dukes of Hazard always wears white. Even after Labor Day. I guess cause he was the mayor or something.
  Mon. 9/6/10 10:59am postmanpaul:

Mark - Interestingly, my girlfriend's cat is also called Bob. He came nameless but this was his given name at cat-baptism. He is a handsome neutered ginger fellow and has a peculiar fondness for honeydew melon.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:00am postmanpaul:

...sorry, Marq.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:00am marq:

If Boss Hog was going 90 miles an hour on a white motorcycle and came to a sudden stop, How far would his cigar travel out of his mouth?
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:04am marq:

Our Bob is a ginger, too! we have some fresh melons from our garden, not honeydew. I will give him a bite. He eats popcorn.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:10am postmanpaul:

My parent's first cat was named Peter. It's hard to imagine he did anything wrong.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:16am marq:

Hopefully that cat named Peter did not do anything wrong. But I wonder if the cat that likes honeydew melons did. Like for instance maybe if he owed you some money for the melons and did have it. He may have robbed Peter to pay postmanpaul.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:17am bobw:

melon cat.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:22am bryan:

flashbacks to teenage summers. i forgot about this song. pretty much forgot about this band too. they sound surprisingly current.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:24am postmanpaul:

Yes! He has his flaws, but I threaten to pull out his claws and blackmail him if I suspect he's up to something like that.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:26am postmanpaul:

  Mon. 9/6/10 11:29am Ike:

Well I know what site I'm visiting NOW! Har har har.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:30am postmanpaul:

Tabbys' are like that.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:35am Ike:

Ugh. I'm going to catsinsinks.com instead for a good laugh.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:38am marq:

catsinsinks.com. BobW went to a site to see boobies. Now a site to see pussies.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:39am mark:

Sounds like Wanda Jackson???
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:39am Ike:

Oh, and great show, Bob.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:43am bobw:

yeah, that was totally wanda-esqe! and it was "unintended pornography!" gotta love cats in sinks. and cats in boxes. and cats on turtles. the internet + cats = infinite entertainment.
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:50am esch oder anarchie:

smooth move ex-lax
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:51am bobw:

i meant to do that! ;-)
  Mon. 9/6/10 11:55am esch oder anarchie:

dude you so just deconstructed the whole bourgeois smooth segue aesthetic
  Tue. 9/28/10 5:23am Nic Richard:

J'écoute et je me dis que nous habitons la même planète, amigo. N
