Adam is opening the show with a great sounding Alison and hilarious #TopDrop from BB, he was apparently shaking in bed thinking about Adam’s finest moment of “Pussy Lips” from yesterday’s show and his wife had a hilarious realization and quip on witnessing it, gold!

Adam is excited to have DDP on the show for his first visit, he was on the original ACS morning show on KLSX in 2006, July 28th, August 23rd and October 24th.

He was promoting his “Yoga for Regular Guys” at the time and the guys are bringing up the HBO “Real Sports” and how Diamond Dallas Page is helping his fellow wrestlers find success after the ring, Adam has a great prolonged broken toys type of description of how society throws away wrestlers.

Hooray for BaldyWood

Bryan saw Robert DeNiro and Luc Besson’s “The Family” and he’s giving a very in depth “it wasn’t bad” review and Adam has some great follow up thoughts and commentary, addressing both DeNiro’s unfair comparisons to his past work and the ad campaign along with month of release.

Adam has a great point about the use of turquoise, it works for seafood advertisements but not for pizza.

Adam’s giving a full dissertation on the film, he will always hate this movie.

Alison has Adam’s reaction to “Napoleon Dynamite” and Adam is explaining why he didn’t care for it either but also views it differently because of the lack of celebrities.

BB just had a comment about Greg Kinnear leaving “The Soup” before the film, but it was “Talk Soup” and that was at least 12 years before “Little Miss Sunshine” entered production.

 

Adam has a great “hobo yelling your pussy smells” reply and Alison is having fun with it, comedy gold!
