They’ve got some follow up commentary on Greg’s therapy and now Adam is working his Chevy Celebrity/Malibu theory into the riff and BB tops it with a killer joke.

Alison’s News

Her top story is on the first suspect in the Boston Bombings being located in security footage.

They’re all weighing with thoughtful replies, Adam is bringing the comedy and Alison has the latest facts.

Adam is now joking about Fitzdog waiting for fans in the parking lot for clapping too emphatically and he’s got a new variant on the name of Greg’s car.


2nd story is on the arrest in the case of the Ricin letters sent for Obama.

Adam is now riffing with Alison about Ricin and he’s concluding it sounds like a sweetener you’d find at trader Joes.

Adam is now riffing on people who get super cutesy/naughty with their very boring food choices, he’s in character riffing as one of these people and Greg intentionally grinds it to a comedic halt, Alison Adam are playing along perfectly and it’s even funnier, nice work Greg!

Alison is now in character as the same type of person that Adam is doing the impression of, this is wonderful!

Adam is now telling Alison to skip over Tokyo Drift, the 3rd entry in the series but takes place in between the soon to be released 6 and 7.

Adam is referencing his love/hate relationship with the on screen performance of Lucas Black (little kid from Sling Blade) and BB mistakes it for a prequel when it’s anything but, this reminds me of explaining all this to Adam while walking in Denver a few years back.


Adam is now riffing with Greg about eating crappy Red Lobster and Outback steakhouse, Adam is asking why people don’t spend an extra buck to get good/real food.

Adam is now having his local “one black fan”  join them on stage, he’s a great sport and adding to the riff but sadly doesn’t enjoy any of the crappy restaurant trappings stereotypical of his race.
