Adam is now using digging dirt and the notion of being paid to walk in a circle.


Ken is back on the line, he tells them about being a cook, and Adam forgets to ask him the question about his drug of choice.

Adam has a great “soup du jour” anecdote form Cleveland, Ken works right near that place.

Adam says you don’t need shampoo or face wash, he will occasionally use shampoo on his face after he gets a heavy makeup application.

Adam is mocking the scheme of removing grease, then re-applying it in multiple steps, he has a great car analogy.


Adam asks who washes their face among the staff, Adam is now suggesting that if he had two baby girls and one was not allowed to use any products their whole life by the time they reached 40, Sally would be much prettier than the other gal who spend a fortune touching on face creams.

Adam says the drugging part takes this to another level of evil, he brings up Rosie O’Donnell from 1993, her show didn’t start till 1996, and Adam says he knew guys who worked on that show who she made fire people with no regard.

Adam prefers the honest and intense Rosie of today on ‘The View’ and he’s further clarifying his request for Rosie’s picture from her daytime talk show.

Adam says she put on a front, because something was lurking inside of her, something she felt.

Adam says she couldn’t work with Telepictures being the real Rosie, Adam is now saying that Bill Cosby is by all accounts a dick and only presented himself as a dancing happy old man.
