This GIF actually came up in a Twitter conversation today. It's terrifying in a certain light.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 5:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Charlton Heston is (was) pretty terrifying.
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 5:58pm ndbob:

evening Doug, James, everyone!
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Why hello, ndbob!

Jim Backus, here we go! (Albeit not exactly a "song.")
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Tuburcular chic on this evening's GTDS!
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

I know I know, it's hard to laugh and comment at the same time. I *understand.*
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/28/15 6:16pm Artie Haywire:

Heston's choppers are the stuff of nightmares. Yikes!
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

He could fire an M16 with those gnashers.
  Tue. 7/28/15 6:21pm Dean:

I went to my cardiologist wearing my heart on my sleeve.
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:21pm Peter Nelson:

Laughing all the way to the blank.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/28/15 6:21pm listener james from westwood:

Wearing a shirt inside out on a dental trip that might get bloody is not the worst stratagem.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:23pm Doug Schulkind:

That is bloody funny, Listener James!
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:33pm ndbob:

great one here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/28/15 6:34pm Carmichael:

OK, back from a meeting. Looks like the playlist is in a good mood.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

I rather agree.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Hahaha, Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/28/15 6:35pm Carmichael:

Guess Who won't be played on this list.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Tell me another, Carmichael. You crack me up!
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:38pm Peter Nelson:

@ Carmicheal Crazy image there. Is it a Vincent Price collage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/28/15 6:39pm Carmichael:

My avatar is Price as the villain Egghead in the Batman TV series.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/28/15 6:41pm listener james from westwood:

Must duck out for dinner; will rejoin the laughing brigade amid Kaminsky Kamoutsky! Thanks, Doug!
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:41pm Peter Nelson:

Cool. Pity the images are so small.
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:43pm glenn:

what prompted this hilarious episode?
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:44pm Doug Schulkind:

The Jackie & the Starlites track I played last Friday, Glenn. Which I am about to play again. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:45pm glenn:

ah. i missed it.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Glenn, I almost used George Barnes' "Laughing at Life" as a talkover track on tonight's show.
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:46pm glenn:

i thought it might have been glee at watching the republicans self immolate yet again.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

They could use a selfie immolate stick. (What, too soon?)
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Just one little laugh from Timi. Don't miss it!!
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:50pm ndbob:

Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:50pm glenn:

my timi yuro knowledge is sadly lacking.
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

I have DJ Monica to thank for hipping me to Timi Yuro.
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:51pm ndbob:

Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:52pm glenn:

i will correct my deficiencies in this regard.
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:52pm ndbob:

and finally the Repub Senators are standing up to Cruz
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Here is that monstrous Jackie & the Starlites track. More monstrousness will follow to end the show...
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:57pm ndbob:

Jackie totally unhinged here - as he should be
Avatar Tue. 7/28/15 6:58pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:58pm Doug Schulkind:

Don't miss the Hound's wonderful essay on Jackie and some seriously unlaughing matters:
Avatar    Tue. 7/28/15 6:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Very funny, ndbob.
