Guess what he's talking about or who is imitating two times out of three you will win our prize the voice of anyone you might choose on your voicemail ready to play. I am quite ready. I'm glad glad to hear it because here is your first quote. Go easy on kid. That was somebody speaking to Camera Harris. Just as the democratic debate started this week. She did not listen to him. who was it that will be uncle? Joe Uncle Joe Biden the second rounded the democratic debates this week and despite the efforts of many people doing a lot of work after the first round. We weren't able to get rid of any of those people at the Wednesday debate. There were two Tuesday Wednesday at the Wednesday debate. Everybody went after Biden and his main response was hey but Obama liked me come on on that was years ago. It's like the old guy who won't stop talking about high school right. Hey I was vice quarterback with the football team. You guys enjoy the debates. I take it you did there. I just I feel bad for Marianne Williamson yeah because everybody kept tweeting her like affirmation. They were asking her she'd had like stones and candles. Yeah they make it sound like Harry Potter just feel bad for her. You know I didn't watch these ones but I will say I was shocked shocked to see her on the debate stage for the Democrats and then very impressed in the first debate when she said her first couple answers into which were pretty good here and then by the thirty answer her meds had worn off it will happen like that. She doesn't go for MED rubs herself against an old oak or something conventional wisdom coming out of the tonight affair was that Joe Biden who is leading by a long way the democratic polls all he had to do was not screw up and he didn't don't screw up so the idea was like oh he's doing great except at the very end of it. He screwed up his own website right. He said go to Joe Three Zero three three zero zero when he meant text that I mean it was such a grandfatherly thing to do. Also although Joe does look like the Joe Thirty thirty two. He looks like he'll be running in a thousand years. You're next quote is from some public service that N._p._R.. Did sending a message to to a specific group of men this week children think you're really really unattractive. That was N._p._R.'s nell Greenfieldboyce talking about a new study that finds men with what facial feature actually scares young children mustaches oh bigger than that go for the whole face beard beard. Yes this wait a minute. You said that the tone of resignation and sadness do you have a beard. I definitely do not okay yes but the answer is beard's a new study finds adults perceived people with beards as stronger and more mature but that young children find them terrifying. AH SINGLE MOM thinks they're stronger and more mature most adults according to psychological surveys yeah well I wasn't they didn't serve me is what they did is part of the study. This was part of it they were trying to find out how kids related to people with beards and not so what they did was they took some young kids and they gave them a specially created picture book. It's about a mysterious island where the kids were instructed to complete quests and they could pick helpers right so they tended to pick clean shaven men for tasks involving cooperation and bearded men for tasks that called for strength and men SPLAINE. This is already to copy. This is already to figuring out the kids. Don't like it's terrifying are bearded people in the you'd shoot. They annoyed by the findings of this. I don't know are you know. First of all children. Children should find band terrified. You see men. Should everyone should have a beer also who wants to be attractive to children. That's <music>. I'm so like not a detective look. I wasn't even thinking about the fact that you have the beard and I think that they seem mature but that wasn't directly so you don't see particularly mature here. Joshua is your last quote. I got the horses in the back. Horse tack is attached. Those were some some of the lyrics to the song that has now broken the record for longest run ever at the top of the billboard charts. What is that song that horrible Song Old Town road? Oh you may think it's horrible serve within the nation disagrees. The song by a little nauseous has been number one on the billboard charts for seventeen consecutive weeks that breaks a record record at this rate it will last longer than human civilization allows X. keeps it on the charts. This is true by constantly churning out new versions with different collaborators including shooting billy ray Cyrus and Lil Wayne Song keeps getting updates were now version thirteen point eight so it doesn't work with the old versions fussell will not not ever be on a remix of Old Town Road Mayor Pete Buttigieg the presidential candidate. This is true he and a little nauseous were supposed to do an event together and Mary Pizza well. Hey we're GONNA be on stage together. Can I do the song with you and they'll GNAWS. X. Said no he had already done a mix with the twelve year old Mason Ramsey from Nashville so we didn't want another with a yodeling child. According to campaign rules he would have had to do a remix with all nineteen. Oh my God ah I should say that even though he put a judge was turned down there is in fact a growing trend presidential candidates collaborating with popstars Bernie Sanders didn't event with Cardi B. This week she he's actually he and she'd been talking for a while. She has lyric about bloody shoes and you know he heard that and was like I had that. Dushi should meet my podiatrists. She did a video on instagram endorsing him yeah and if it would have been on N._B._C. it would have been one solid beep. Yeah I would say oh my goodness it was it was interesting.

The story of a mystery demystified comes from Adam Burke. We can all agree the only thing worse than a mcchicken. Sandwich is a mcchicken sandwich at someone's woman's already taken a bite out of that was the situation facing an Indianapolis police officer who went to reheat a McDonalds meal at the beginning of his shift only to find someone woman had pre nibbled it. I know I didn't eat it said the officer who identified himself to local press as D._J.. Officer D._J.. Immediately went into the McDonald's from whence the sandwich originated and demanded to know which cop hating malefactor had sabotaged his sandwich a joint investigation was immediately launched. Thanks bye both the Golden Arches and boys in blue just in case anyone in Indianapolis was wondering why it was taken so long to find your stolen car and or deliver your mcmuffin eventually. The perpetrator of the mass decatur misdeed was brought to light none other than Officer D._J.. Himself the the employees took a bite out of the SAM upon starting his shift police said in a statement he returned nearly seven hours later having forgotten that he had previously bitten the Sammer. The discovery has helped to clear up a number of other investigations that D._J.. Has Been Working on including the curious case of who left the front door open the mystery of the missing TV remote and the baffling riddle who used up all the toilet paper the investigation to see what prankster took a bite out of his own sandwich only discover that it was himself your last story of an enigma my answer to comes from Paula poundstone when coral springs Florida residents Nina and Fred Russilloshow returned home to their sixteen year old son after dinner out on Tuesday Tuesday night. They were shocked to find a gaping hole in the front door chairs. Were flipped furniture was in disarray. The couch persons were wet and hemorrhaging foam home. The refrigerator door was swung wide open exposing its collapsed shelves and empty containers. I was so angry Nina Russo said Romeo Romeo her son was sitting at the computer when we left and there was an Eggplant lasagna a seven layer dip and a poppy seed bundt cake in the refrigerator two and a half half hours later he was sitting there playing fort nut or whatever it is the apartment was a war zone and there were empty food containers even under the couch however young Romeo insisted he had done nothing wrong and had no idea what had happened feeling unjustly accused Romeo's stormed out of the apartment slamming what was left after the front door and saw an eleven foot alligator being wrangled into a Florida Fish and wildlife commission vehicles when their neighbors saw the alligator coming out of the front door they immediately called the nuisance alligator hotline authorities are not sure why the mammoth Predator broke through the Rubio's door and ravaged their apartment but Romeo's parents were <unk> only mildly surprised that there's never noticed all right choices to one of these. He's a real mystery. That got solved this week. Was it from IDA. What happened to a lost boy in Washington?

I WanNa know like one episode. We have the woman that woman on the show with the longest fingernails you know one of her fingernails with a little more than four five feet long and my mother asked the question well how do you I'm going to say here. I don't Till the magician the naked magician. I don't see any other answer same thing. Go disrespect your mother's cleverness into was on the board. Now we heard that you are pretty enthusiastic. Golfer and in fact you've golfed with President Obama. What was that like bat was? One of the best rounds of golf ever played is Obama chatty golfers he one of those serious golfers. I just want to hit the ball and get down the course he quit you. He talks trash which you <hes> and I'll tell you this. He took all of our money <music>. He's a golfer. It was Chris Paul Myself Michael Phelps and President Obama President Obama a dozen hit the ball off the tee hit about two hundred and twenty two hundred thirty yards but he hits it straight as an Arrow right down the middle of the fairway and he ended up taking money any from all three of us. I was about to say you say he took all of your money. You Chris Paul and Michael Phelps have a lot of money we do with President Obama getting have a problem taking any of it no he was was he like in how we're GONNA. We're GONNA make this interesting that was gonNA play into how so because we didn't know if tweet could approach presente like that with the bet so we bet amongst ourselves and on the third hole while we were teeing off Alabama was like so you guys aren't GonNa include me into the back and we were like Oh sure Barack won't get onboard. Let's plan for us all right and he commenced to whip the what is the right to talk to you anthony but we have invited you here and I hope he were warned about this to play a game. This time we're calling you've been sent down to Aa your initials are of course which made us think of double a baseball. That is the minor league so we're GONNA ask you three questions about Minor League ball correctly you want our price one of our listeners the voice of anyone they might like on their answering machine bill who is Anthony Anderson playing for Eric Christianson of Anaheim California the local all all right you ready here ready all right. Here's a question minor league teams are famous for their promotions right won promotion thought up by the West Virginia power with was stopped before it could happen what was it hey animal sacrifice night which they were to recreate with a live goat an ancient pagan ritual be salute to indoor plumbing night in which they would close the bathrooms and ask everyone to use porta-pottys instead or see wife swap night in which everybody had the chance to go home with somebody else wow West Virginia. That's definitely why floppy very certain yet you went for the wrong stereotype. It's indoor plumbing plumbing night that one of the do this because the idea it. was you really appreciate indoor plumbing when you don't have access to it but the health authority shut them down so they weren't able to really appreciate someone else's wife if you've been married as long as some other people here's your next year so two chances you can still win this something. That's never happened before happened at an Atlantic Atlantic League minor league game just two weeks ago what was it a player swung his bat so hard to came around and hit him in the head so he knocked himself out. Be a coach was ejected from a game for arguing with a robot umpire or see a pop fly was caught and carried away by a seagull resulting in the first ever bird assisted homerun baseball player swung the bat so hard that it sort right him something hit and knocked himself out. The audience doesn't doesn't like that. I don't know if you can hear Anthony but they're all saying it's B.. I admire you sir but they were right. I was in fact the trying out this thing where a robot calls balls and strikes a coach did not like the calls argued and was thrown out by the human umpire who was monitoring monitoring all right. You have one more chance to get one right here. We go minor. League Games are known for their shenanigans but one catcher tried something the cost him his job. What did he do? He carved up potato tatum to look like a baseball and threw it to trick a runner while holding onto the real ball to tag him out be he used poison ivy to turn to the opposing pitcher into an actual belly pitcher or see tired of squatting behind the plate he dragged a barker laundry out there and just sat there and challenge them to make a move. Oh my God I am going to have to go with carved potato and dig it. Birkin out in Hawaii held onto the ball. That's exactly right. I just want to say he did this. It worked he got the guy out but he was immediately thrown out of the game and his baseball career was over but the potato ball is now preserved in baseball museum. It was such an amazing thing love it. I I do too bill. How did Anthony Anderson are out of three? That's okay Ish Anthony Today.

Yeah all right here is your first limerick. Avocado toast will not controlled me but demand is up it shocks me holy now tacos and chips resort to fo- dips they have to use fake Guacamole guacamole avocado getting more and more expensive and millennials have already taken out second mortgages to afford them as it is so restaurants have started making guacamole without avocado true. This mock GUAC is made often with the Mexican squash called Caliber Sita's fun to say but it's just not the same chefs say the flavors almost identical the only difference is in the texture can the tend to be thinner and run here because he has a looked at a bowl of guacamole and thought you know. I wish this was damper. That's why you gotta come over the make it right at your table. You can go let me look at AH. Here's your next limerick. Grab your clubs to the Church we will strut strengths pray for par with no eff and or but but across the turns slowly the water traps holy. We're going to church to play Putt PUTT. Yes in Rochester Cathedral outside London is almost a thousand years old and it has the distinction of being one of the holiest places in England not only is it at a church but it is now a church with an indoor mini golf course the course only opened recently and clergy around the world too quick to condemn it describing it as an act of desecration and but some religious scholars believe the course has a place in the church for example Jesus would be a great golfer he never loses ball and a water hazard or if he's in a fun mood a wine hazard hazard. Here's your here is your last limerick. When I work out get anxious or fret I get stains funky smells and regret so I wear a new fabric? That's woven of magic. It smells really good.

If you think about this this technology could lead to total chaos suddenly tons of B o's a sexy thing to listen. You're dating profile that idea. Actually I do someone who's constantly conscious of how much I might be smelling because I'm a big sweater. I think that'd be nice. I think that Ah you know sometimes what other people like for example car air freshener which I would rather be in the car with vomit and dog waste Venice smell of a car air freshener so maybe it depends what you think is a pleasant smell but on the off chance that it really is a pleasant a lemony pleasant isn't lemony smell.
