Adam talks about the fans who brings family members and BB has a Chris (Christopher) Tyson (Titus) #TopDrop and Adam welcomes the gang to the show.

Adam is talking about the live lobsters he was given by Rob and how as a young man growing up the closets he ever got to seeing a lobster was a sign.


Adam says his family were so predictable in making everything seem so outrageous and hard everyone became broken by them, he jokes about an “Alan Hale’s Own” TV dinner where he could sample some imitation lobster.

Adam talks about night swimming with Sonny who had a stint of 8 months, more like 10 if you ask him where he was living without a pool.

Adam jokes about blaming Phil for drowning Sonny after he tried to top Adam’s point/pain of living without a pool his entire life.


Adam is now asking for Alan Hale’s lobster barrel; Gary is on the hunt.

Adam is describing how the kids’ reacted to the lobsters, Natalia was shoving the claw back into the pot and challenging the dying creature, Adam said it did not make the “noise” but the tails did curl up which indicates a reaction to something, for all of his PETA friends.

Adam was chomping at the bit for the next episode of Cribs, he says it was the low rent version of the show and he just needed something American.


“Danny Bonaduce Welcome to MY Apartment” – Adam on the post-divorce lifestyle of Danny.

Adam says that Mike pulled up the Airbnb that had a picture of her kid and dog, BB says the picture of her china is an indicator of it not being a good place to say, they are using landmarks and minutia to fill up the pictures.

Adam talks about crashing at Nate’s place, Adam says the tour of this Airbnb was akin to the planning for March Madness at the KLSX ACS in 2009.


Adam is sharing how the woman needed to work out of the place they would be staying in, Adam was totally open to her coming back to work for half a day but what are you going to knock of the cost for him, he doesn’t want to live a world without reciprocity, he says only a formerly hot blonde would deem that would be ok.

Q and Ace

1st Caller Jonathan, he asks how Adam was doing, he was doing good…

Gina brings up the Dodge Attitude they rented in Mexico, Adam talks about Dodge stepping up to the plate to make piles of shit now that Pontiac is out of the game, they need cars for people who like cotton candy flavored vodka, any openly fake hood scoops leftover that they can use.

Danny was rejected for a job in the joint because he didn’t have a diploma, he tells Adam about selling 4 ounces of sugar to an undercover agent, he says if he would have given the money back they might have been more lenient with his sentencing.


Danny says he did about 19 months in San Quinten and then moved onto Folsom, Adam jokes about this going from Vice Principals to wardens, now we got to shop around for other planets to send him to, in hopes he might be rehabilitated and get along there, like The Hulk in the ‘Planet Hulk’ storyline which Adam has never read and has no idea exists unless he’s watched the animated film with Sonny.

Adam is asking him about prison life and the segregation along with currency system in the joint.

Adam goes to Craig who has no stories about the joint.

Adam asks Craig about their new movie and they move on to the news.


Gina’s News

1st Story is on the murder of Alton Sterling and the murder of Philando Castile, Adam hammers Gina to reveal that Alton had a gun that he had brandished earlier in the evening and was selling CD’s (discs, maybe pirate movies) illegally outside of a storefront.

Adam says the murder of Philando Castile troubles him much more, he explains why and that nobody deserves to die in this situation but Alton had knowingly put himself in a situation where things like what happened can happen, it still doesn’t make it ok nor right.

Adam is very clear, he says not every one of these black men who are murdered are heroes or upstanding citizens, citing some other shootings and the behavior that preceded it.


Adam talks about cops and the type of people who want to get into that line of work, they are the guys you expect them to be and they’re looking for a fight.

Adam tells the cops to knock of the chicken shit traffic stops for things like broken tail lights, they had no cause to pull this guy over.

Adam is talking about cops as income generating earners for the city and how hard it is to turn that faucet of cash off once you start it.


Adam says whatever you skin color is when the cops yell gets on the ground you got to get on the ground, Gina has a clip of from the Facebook video of Philando Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds.

Danny weighs in and Adam gives his theory on the stun gun that Cousin Sal brought into The Man Show, of course someone was going to get shocked.

Adam says it’s a self-selecting group who become cops and Adam says his only protest on this is when people say it’s open season on black people, Adam says we just don’t’; report it when it’s white people, it’s everyone who get this treatment.


Adam has a “black car” accident narrative theory on this, he says there are plenty of footage of cops shooting white people and Hispanic people, it’s not just one group, the stats back that up.

Gina asks if they are approaching large black men with a different mindset when approaching black men, he says it’s based on crime stats and can’t be weeded out, they got guns and are some of the dumbest guys you went to high school with, it’s going to happen.


Adam says the lager group is males, just males, not black men, it’s about who commits the majority of crimes.

Gary has the details on the Dylan Noble case where they shot him while he lied on the ground in front of them, Adam says it’s wrong, but the narrative of its black people is poisoning us.

Danny has never seen this reported on the news, he was executed by cops, why no story? It doesn’t fit the narrative.


Adam says of course if you’re in the black community you’re going to feel this way, it’s the narrative you’ve been fed, you watch the same TV he watches.

Adam says the news agencies need to report every death at the hands of cops or tone down the instigation, Adam says that CNN has something to do with pharmacies in Ferguson being burned down.

Adam brings up how they use “kid” and “gentle giant” to inflame these things worse, Danny brings up the Michael Brown shooting.


2nd Story is on Sarah Silverman’s Epiglottitis and hospitalization, Adam talks abbot the irony of this as she’s always been so focused oral hygiene and was the first person to introduce tongue scarping to him, hilarious vagina comment from Ace.

Gina talks about Sarah’s experience and they discover it’s a bacterial condition that can be transmitted if someone sneezes on you.

Adam is talking about the difficulty in spelling these complicated names, he ends up giving to the catholic big brothers in place of these conditions as he can’t spell them when put on the spot.


3rd Story is on Jon Jones suspension for a potential doping violation and Gary has the late breaking update of Anderson Silva filling in for Jones.

Adam is trying to comment on Jon’s self-destruction, he says in a sport where many fights come down to a coin toss and you are somehow not subject to that, the way Jon is maybe you can’t keep it together.

BB plays a clip of Tito Ortiz comparing boxing and MMA to checkers and chess, Danny disagrees and gives his take, Adam jokes about boxers playing dominos, which Danny enjoys.


Danny praises Floyd Mayweather and his level of talent which has evolved past the limits of the art, he’s able to do stuff nobody else can do, Adam has a “Mike Titus” joke while joking about Yesterday’s show where he kept calling Titus “Tyson” and Adam is back to Jon’s potential huge paydays.

Adam loves Floyd Mayweather’s uncle and they move on.

4th Story is on Gretchen Carlson’s lawsuit alleging sexual harassment, Danny is riffing about “nana” and they talk about how sad it is that a woman’s looks can be used to determine if it’s likely she was harassed.

They are now playing a supercut of Gretchen Carlson’s looks being brought up on the show.

Adam tells Gina this is a 0, we’re supposed to be upset because her colleague called her pretty, Danny shares a joke/sexual harassment anecdote about a waitress interaction.


Danny says it’s a different time, Adam says we could put together a montage where it seems like Gina is harassing him and him her, they might even be able to get 20 seconds of BB agreeing with him, just maybe!

Adam says most women like to be complimented on their appearance, Men don’t care as much, he can’t stop the part where someone feels threatened by Danny for being polite.

Gina wraps the news with more drops of her out of context.
