You may like chewing the gum, but the gum does not like YOU!

How about those Sacramento Kings? George Karl saved the entire franchise (for 1 game).
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:04pm glenn:

oh, he did it. one hundred per cent. no alleged about it.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:05pm Matt from Springfield:

O.J.'s in the PAST, man! Aaron Hernandez is the time-travelling serial killer of the FUTURE! And PAST!

Mo Tucker worked at a Walmart.

Make that Moe.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:09pm Matt from Springfield:

I imagine Daniel Johnston to be a post office/McDonald's worker. Crazy weird genius in ordinary places, and all.

@Ralphine: I was just about to add that! A commenter here said that in '96 they stopped off at that Walmart off of I-95 in Georgia. She wasn't there but they confirmed she did work there!
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:09pm glenn:

I thought she was a Tea Party receptionist.

Daniel Johnston did work at McDonalds, but only for about 2 weeks.

The internet says it was an Altima.

Aaron Hernandez is doing for Bubblicious what Timothy McVeigh did for Ryder Trucks.

Time-travelling murder IS kinda like witchcraft...try him in Salem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:13pm dale:

HAH! i read that that evidence was the 'smoking gum'
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:13pm Ralphine:

Boston Globe and Boston Herald said it, and Altima starts with an A.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Oh man, that was so long ago. Nowadays it's all about Middle East/African terrorists using Toyota pickups. They'll last 30 years, through all your insurgencies!

@dale nice!

@dale: NY Post headlines, write themselves!
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:16pm Ralphine:

Hernandez is probably calling to say that he's coming for you when he gets out of stir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:17pm dale:

not mine, but i'll take any credit i can get
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:17pm Carmichael:

Toyota pickups have been the terrorist vehicle of choice since the 70s, when I served in Africa. They blow up real good, too.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:19pm glenn:

as good as pintos?
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

"Dependable and lasting, right to the point they blow up!"

black raspberries are blue when you smoosh them onto ice cream. red raspberries are a different animal

It was Bubblicious Blue Cotton Candy gum.

Better, Glenn. Everything in the bed gets catapulted up into the air like skeet. JUST like skeet.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Apparently it's:
red raspberry, Rubus idaeus: en.wikipedia.org...
and black raspberry, Rubus leucodermis/occidentalis/coreanus, depending where you are: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:24pm Studio B Ben:

My favorite ice cream to make is black raspberry/chocolate chip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:24pm Carmichael:

Maybe his lawyer will call in for an interview.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:24pm Danne D:

is the number the usual number or the 200 number?

it's really too bad the ford explorer didn't show a tendency to blow up. the ford exploder? that's comedy gold.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ben: PennSupreme black raspberry RAWKS! I also love choco chip in mint or vanilla ice cream.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Wow, now I gotta search for "Toyota pickup blow up" videos...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/23/15 6:26pm JakeGould:

I believe the blue is raspberry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:26pm asb:

My cousin has seven kids whose names start with "k." Is that a right-wing thing? There are some mildly interesting oddly-spelled names in there, but I am not naming them because g00gle, and also because I don't really know them. The names or the kids.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:27pm Danne D:

NASCARhas 3 national series.
Sprint Cup Series (which has some new sponsor next year)
Xfinity Series (formerly Nationwide Dead Kid Series and formerly Busch Series).
Craftsman Truck Series

Then there are regional series that are sanctioned by NASCAR like the K&N Pro East Series
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@asb: Certainly from a personality desiring "control"...
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:27pm Danne D:

I am trying to call - is it 201-209-9368 or 201-200-9368?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/23/15 6:28pm JakeGould:

201-209-9368 I believe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:28pm Carmichael:

I grew up with a five kid family who all had names beginning with K. The parents names both started with R, and the family name was a K.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: I think it's the even weirder Studio B number, 547- or something. How did you call in, Ben?

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/23/15 6:28pm JakeGould:

“Blue raspberry is a common flavoring for candy, snack foods, syrups and soft drinks. The flavor originates from Rubus leucodermis, more commonly known as the "whitebark raspberry" or "blue raspberry" for the blue-black color of its fruit.

Food products labeled as blue raspberry flavor often contain a bright blue food coloring, the most common being Brilliant Blue FCF, although this coloring is not an accurate rendition of the actual color of the fruit, which has an almost black hue when ripe.” en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:29pm dale:

it's either, one is studio, one is on air
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:29pm Danne D:

cuz they moved to the Mararthon Studio so it might be different number (I think it is)
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Sounds like a car engine with a broken starter:
"RK RK KK KK KK KK KK!"
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice call, Danne! :)

201-536-9368 is the number :)
This should be on the left side for the next few weeks

Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ben: I was just trying to think of something to remember it by, like the game where you try to make words out of your phone number, and almost immediately I realized THAT could be the reason for their choice!

Thanks for the shout out! :)

@Carm: Gasp, that was no ordinary dog bite, that was a HITDOG!!
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:38pm Ralphine:

I like the Pakistani and Indian cricket announcers. One of them once referred to a player as "disheveled."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:39pm Carmichael:

Just don't get into a sticky wicket!
  Mon. 2/23/15 6:41pm Alex:

I'd just like to say that if there were a novel or movie about a NASCAR driver married to a CIA Assassin, it would be a blockbuster.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

"And goodness, what a disheveling Kumar took from Patel! But the umpire has ruled that a legal disheveling, and there will be no penalty..."

Any memories of the Miracle On Ice from 1980? I was attending a high school wrestling match when I heard the US beat the Soviets.
  Mon. 2/23/15 6:46pm Danne D:

guy on paper route spoiled the 1980 result. this fact pisses me off.
  Mon. 2/23/15 6:47pm Danne D:

great time saving idea for baseball - less commercials between innings
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:47pm dale:

in 1980 i was wasted on 50 cent beers and quaaludes - hockey was the last thing on my mind
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: It's the *cinematic* disclosure: "Extry! Extry! USA back on top!", wearing old newsie clothes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/23/15 6:47pm JakeGould:

I was 12 years old in 1980. Was kind of exciting. I mean it was happening in Lake Placid, New York so it was a local news thing.
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: It's why they stopped "50 cent beer and Quaalude Night" at the hockey rink -- the lack of violence..

Whoa. Drone combat sounds awesome. That has to be included in the upcoming Battlebots reboot!
Avatar Mon. 2/23/15 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't go losing your drones Ken! Especially not near the White House! ;) (That was actually an employee of MY workplace who lost his friend's drone over the White House fence! No kidding! ;)

Begun the drone wars have.

It sounds as exciting aerial ribbon dancing

@Danne: It might be his first call in to Bronwyn since the "Thunk Tank" days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:56pm Carmichael:

Put a laser on that drone, Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/23/15 6:57pm Carmichael:

Put on Ohio Express' "Chewy Chewy".

There should be drones that fire off bottle rockets when the 4th of July rolls around.
