What trying to open up the economy opened up city. Yep Basically everything whatever we do. People say we won't be able to go back to normal right away. For example restaurants will open. But they'll have to stagger the table. So nobody's anywhere near each other servers. Remember throw entrees from the left. Receive flying dirty plates from the right crowded. You will not have my my understanding is if the restaurants are going to be at half capacity than we actually get double the food right. That's how it's GonNa work.

We're Global Derek. There is one group of animals that are not happy. And that is this is true. New York City Rats. They're apparently forming armies. And battling each other because there's not enough garbage to eat now. Without filthy humans discarding pizza crusts and other garbage.

Felber first graders enrolled in Brooklyn's Kevin School were treated to an unexpected visitor in their virtual zoom classroom. This week when one of the Students Dad's accidentally showed up in the background and commenced an exercise routine in his underwear and a special bonus. That Dad was beloved actor. Paul Giamatti yes. Things went sideways for seven year. Old Ashley Giamatti. When unbeknownst to her her famous dad spread out of Madden too clearly visible next room and began stretching clad only in a pair of boxer shorts and undershirt soon children were laughing and parents were flocking into view to see what one onlooker described as a bizarre routine that seemed to be part. Yoga Tai Chi and part modern. Dance by the end. Said one cavendish mom. There were a series of deep Ben's gyrations better suited for an exotic dance floor. Certainly not for a first grade classroom. It was around this time. That young actually turned around gasped in horror and shouted dad. We can all see you. Jimmy has already apologized to his fellow. Parents setting the difficulties family. Sheltering in place embarrassed he said please guys. I was in big Momma's house but Ashley. She may need therapy. Paul Giamati doing exercises in his underwear behind his very embarrassed daughter during zoom class. You're next story of a mommy. Mistake comes from Nagin. Far Saad Kelly Clarkson is a fund. Mom She sings obviously but she celebrates every occasion. With the kind of Gusto you would expect from the from just into Kelly Star and her kid river. Losing his first tooth was no exception. The night that rivers I tooth fell. He dutifully put under his pillow and drifted to sleep. Clarkson brought in makeup and costume artists to make her into the tooth fairies magical assistant complete with a frilly gown wings glitter and an impressive wand. She hired a prop master to beam glowing purple light on his bed and set up. A rig that enabled Clarkson to literally float into rivers bedroom. She gently wakes kid up to tell him the tooth fairies about to arrive which he decided to do. Randomly in a British accent river woke up totally confused and punches. His mother and the face. She falls back and screams in perfect C. SHARP. Of course her wings get caught on the rig which topples onto a lamp causing a small fire. In the meantime the kid crying wildly runs into the kitchen and dials. Nine one one telling them that. A lady with ways. Straightest deal me and set fire to our House. Police arrived to find frazzled. Kelly Clarkson with soot on her face in burnt assistant tooth fairy regalia a frightened makeup person costume designer and prop master and a six year. Old Kid in hysterics. Of course Beller. Police are used to breaking up celebrity parties as one cup. Put it. You wouldn't believe the costume fetish. Celebs have but there's usually a lot of drugs and sometimes an exotic animal Clarkson explain what happened. Thank the cops and smiled. That's when everyone notice. Kelly Clarkson is missing a tooth because her son had punched it out of Kelly. Clarkson goes a little bit too far in acting out the role of the tooth fairy for her son and your last story of a problematic parent comes from Peter. Gross Comedian Amy Schumer and her husband. Chris Fisher are the proud parents of a beautiful eleven month. Old Baby boy named Gene David Fisher. But that wasn't always the little guys name. Schumer revealed on her podcast this week that she changed her son's name after a friend pointed out that the original name the name they put on his birth certificate last. May might have earned. The boy considerable scorn as he reached adolescence. Little jeans original Middle Name Attell. After comedian and friend Dave attell that his first two names would be gene. Attell which sounds more than a little bit. Like the word genital. Maybe not that much to use sophisticated. Npr listener but to the merciless. Sixth Grade Boys Little Jeans Future. It would have been a veritable goldmine teasing perfect storm on par with being the classmate of a kid named Mike Raj or buts or Anita Weiner Schumer Wade. Many options after realizing her oversight including changing the boy's name to the baby formerly known as Gina. Tell but then realized she could just change his middle name to David. So that was that while this was the first recorded celebrity baby name change many celebrities of course alter their own birthdays before becoming famous cary grant was born Archibald Leach. Mel Brooks was born. Melvin Kaminsky Queen. Latifah was born. Princess Latifa Benedict cumberbatch was born benzedrine. Cummerbund and rapper debate. He was actually born to baby and just forgot to change his name to Dick grownup. All right here. David are your choices from Adam. Felber was Paul Giamati broadcasting his exercise routine in his underwear to his daughter's entire class via video link from Dean. Farside Kelly Clarkson trying to do a wonderful thing for her son when he lost a tooth and instead losing a tooth herself or from Peter Gross Amy Schumer and her husband realizing that the name they gave their beloved first child sounds a little bit too much like the word Genitalia. Which of these was the real story of a celebrity parenting mistake? They all some pretty unbelievable but I think I'm going to have to go with gene. A tell gene attell the former name of Amy Schumer is baby. Well defined the correct answer. Well please listen to this. It was gene attell Fisher but we realized that we by accident named our son genital. Tent was Amy Schumer Star. Cast three girls one Keith. Congratulations David you got right. You've earned a point for Peter Gross. You've won a prize. And Amy Schumer has renamed her baby after you David. Thank you so much for playing and thank you for every single thing that you do.

What was funny was so many people like that is no way that is like an alien movie stars kitchen so could you for the just for the benefit of those people lie to America. But what's your real kitchen is like my real kitchen. I assume it looks like the dining hall and hog. Were now Racha twohey kitchen with all those. Have you seen Downton Abbey?

Diana comes out of Fort Worth Texas all right Diana you've been on both sides here we go. You might be excited if your neighbor won the lottery but not the neighbors of a British man who won ten million pounds in two thousand and three and then did what with the money was IT A. He bought the house next door and created. Britain's first rat sanctuary in petting zoo be. He added an additional fifteen stories onto his house. Where see turned his yard into a demolition Derby Racetrack? I'm GonNa go with fifteen stories. Did he blocked everybody's view with his money. No he didn't he actually turned it into a demolition. Derby race track. You know. There's a lot of things a person could do with ten million pounds that's about. That's about the most sensible thing you could match up some car making note Tom for the quarantine is over anyway when neighbors complained he launched fireworks flares over their houses that somebody you knew how to live all right. You still have tumor chances. All right I'll take a little longer on this because I know you need to pad this show out so I've been listening in and I think there's a Lotta cuddle material all right. A concerned mother in northern California called Animal Control on her neighbor in two thousand fifteen after she noticed. What a that. The neighbors parrot was teaching her kids. How to swear be that the neighbor's cat really seemed to enjoy being dressed up everyday with a hat for a Kitty Tea. Party or see that. Her neighbor's dog really seemed to look and act like a person in a dog suit. These are far too possible. Each one of them parrot cat or dog yes. Those are the three pets. You've heard the story of the parrot who did swear far too much and insulted its owner until an anger. The owner grabbed the parrot and shoved it into his freezer above his refrigerator. And then when leaving in there for a few minutes he opened the door and the parrot was very contrite and said I want to apologize. My my language was used it. It was rude of me and I hope you can forgive me. And then the parrot said and by the way just. What did the chicken do in honor of that joke? I'm I'm going to. I'm going to vote for the foul mouth. You're exactly right. Hey that's the one. The neighbor claimed that the parent was shouting obscenities in Spanish. The parents owners said the parent doesn't even know Spanish. Okay all right. This is the wind now here. Is Your last question. Once upon a time a man named Bob kept complaining to his neighbor about the condition of his ugly unpainted wooden fence. What did the neighbor do was it? He tore down the fence so his neighbor. Bob could enjoy him. And his seventy year old wife practice nudism be. He got some paint and he just painted the words. Look Bob. I've painted my fence on the ugly old wood or see. He tore down the fence and put up five concrete highway barriers. Who would complain about seventy year old? Nudists I don't see some hands. Fear around Zoom Conference. Yes sir. I'll go with the. Hey Bob. I painted my fence. That that's exactly right.
