Dawson/Lynch have an amazing intro for Adam that he adds to nicely, BB has a great recent #TopDrop from A-Rose.

Adam is sharing an anecdote from dealing with the kiddies earlier in the day, he’s now citing women who spend many hours of their life with hot hair blowing into the side of their head.

BB is citing dogs being afraid of the device and saying it’s the litmus test for a device, Adam is now telling people to travel with battery operated hairdryers while in wolf country in the back woods of Alaska.


Alison is sharing how she sometimes uses a fan while using the hair dryer, Adam is mocking her for “Kill-O-Watt” much like his wife.

Adam is citing how he walked in on Natalia, standing in front of a full length mirror in her bikini just brushing her hair.

Adam is now becoming Dianne Wiest in “Parenthood”, BB admires the deep reference and Adam’s vocal tone almost inflects hers.


Adam is now sharing what Natalia was actually up to and BB has some perfectly times drop work to really drive the hilarious brutality of this story home.

Adam is sharing how she now has a new app that allows her to make her own music videos, BB is now using the hippy “I don’t know if it’s forever man” argument about posting something to the internet.

Adam and Alison are now wisely disagreeing as we all know the only thing that ever vanishes from the internet is Adam Carolla content.


BB is now asking if there will be a day when everyone has embarrassing material and can’t run for office, Alison and Adam once again agree that we’re already there as a society.

Adam is bringing up the Clinton “I didn’t inhale” line of BS and mocking the country for nobody calling him out, he’s comparing it to the Village People and how they flew under the collective gay radar despite not at all trying.

Adam is now sharing how a fan sent him “Relieved of Duty” as another example of something that sounds better than it is.


Adam is now back to his daughter’s love of Rihanna, Alison has some questions about the video and now Adam is taking the riff to hilarious lengths, wow!

I will be in attendance and Adam has decided to cover the entire “Fast and Furious” series, I just emailed him a list of the continuity and timeline, here is hoping he reads it!

Adam is now trying to explain how he has to reconcile the experience of his family and how they’ve treated him vs. how we fans treat him and take care of him.


BB wants to know Adam’s contingency plan if they ended up under funded for the new movie, Adam is explaining how he has a thing where he moves through life one step at a time, he’s working on the script first and will focus on the next step when he gets there, interesting.

Adam and BB are now explaining he rules for the grading scale of stink and Alison has a nice reminder about a score of 25 requiring vomit.

1st Caller Jim, He works in the healthcare industry and has a small examination room, he’s describing a man with a rotting big toe.

Adam has a great fetish joke that he tops with an even funnier “Ear, Nose and Toe?”

Jim is using a fake name as not to be recognized by any patients, he’s defending his rotting toe ridden working man patient. Jim got a 28 Hobo Power.


2nd Caller Joey, Adam is sharing how people get pissed about the morning show version of this bit that would interfere with people’s breakfast.

BB tries to shit up a point and now Alison is explaining the likely reason.

Adam is back to Joey asking him about his call, they’ve now retroactively given first caller Jim a 28 and giving Joey the win with a 30 for the cottage cheese in wounded man story.


3rd Caller Wyatt, calling from Afghanistan.

Adam is now quizzing Wyatt about his deployment and he’s remarkably frank. Adam is calling Paris Island another thing/place that sounds better than it is.

Adam is asking him about the chow over there and he’s telling Adam about how it becomes monotonous so he turns to the food in his care packages.
