We're not as young as we once were. So for us. It's going to be more like nine PM in the guard who good and evil. The first this last week former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams delivered the democratic response to the state of the union, and it seems it didn't go. Well. And I'm saying this because apparently the only talk show she could get booked on after it was this one. Joining. Job. The I it's your turn. Give us a call them. Play our games. The number is one triple eight, wait. Wait that's one eight eight eight nine two four eight nine two four. Let's welcome. Our first listener contestant. Hi, you're on. Wait. We don't tell them. Good to hear from you. What do you do there in Austin? Company paperwork factory understand. I also play competitive women kickball in summertime, of course, you deal. Everybody in Austin is obligated by city ordinance to have a revered hobby. Well, welcome to the show. Heather let me introduce you to our panel this week, I up it's a writer and performer who you last saw as Mike Pence on the president show. It's Peter gross. Next to feature writer for the style section of the Washington Post. It's Roxanne Roberts. CBS Sunday morning and host of the new podcast mo- bitch. Wary is available wherever you get your podcast. It's. You're gonna play who's Bill this time. Bill Kurtis is going to read you three quotations from the week's news. You know, this your job correctly identified. Explain just two of them. Do that winter price the voice if anyone you might choose from our show on your voicemail ready to play. All right. Your I quote is a bit of poetry. We all heard on Tuesday night is going to be peace and legislation. Cannot be ward and investigations. That was just one of the versus dropped by master MC. Donald trump. During what speech? This week. It seems crazy all that height in the delay in the end. It was so boring and disappointing the state of the union that you have expected Adam LeVine to come out in the middle. That would have been the best. The speech did make history somebody analyzed it and found all the words that had never before been said in a state of the union address on all our history, for example, and this is real bloodthirsty chilling fennel heartache freeloading sadistic venomous and kissing. Weird. He said all those things with President Trump still hasn't said Tiffany, though. She was there. She was there. She was there. She was behind one of the distinguished guests in the box. And I learned it was like, oh, right Fini, which I think is. And for all the challenges, and vitriol, there were some bipartisan moments, for example, many of the Democrats more white and all of the Republicans were white. Did different colored ties. That's. It was a rainbow Caucasians. It was amazing. I was wondering like why is he making this rhyme? This like very Dr Seuss like elementary school crime. And then I thought like, oh, I bet this is how it's visors. Explain things to. And he was like those rhymes. I always give. They make. All right. You're next quote is from a woman named shila sharp. It's on Twitter when we said more black faces in government. We hear the bed more. On the growing scandal. That will apparently end the career of every politician in what state Virginia. Virginia that female members of congress are not the only group of Democrats that dress like. It began with governor. Ralph north of us elected over a guy who is running on an explicitly racist platform, but it turns out before you vote. You gotta check under the hood. So somebody found this photograph from the governor's medical school yearbook in it's a picture of a guy in black face next to a guy in a fit and the governor immediately apologize, even though he said that he did not remember which one was him. Can't remember p must've gotten black-faced drunk? Is there? Jeff foxworthy joker. It's like if you can't remember if you're the guy under the mood of the base. Mike. This is standing for so many reasons first of all I was shocked that middle medical schools had yearbook. Who's got the time, right? And then I also stunned the press conference the disastrous press conference the next day. He said, it's really hard to get shoe polish off your scanner. So the press. He says I was wrong. It wasn't me. In those photos. I was wrong. But he says I did put you polish face to impersonate, Michael Jackson at a dance contest. And somebody says can you still loon walk? And he says I would. But my wife just told me, it's not the right moment. Going. Can I? Must be sighing relief. Democrat who ten governor who would take over doors resides in the middle of the mighty sometimes they're just wanting to know that the sexual assault accusation against me is totally bogus. And everybody's like what sexual? This one everybody talk about it for a week. And then done the attorney general said, yeah, I did black face to in a prominent Republican says I edited a yearbook filled with racist photos. So seriously at this point Virginia is changing its name to east West Virginia. So your last quote is from a critique of a new play that the author hopes to debut in New York City soon, it was long winded in meandering, thankfully, none of it was wrapped. So that was the New Yorker talking about a play that was written just because the play's author hates what so much of. Yes. Hamilton, very good. Humane thought it was actually illegal to dislike him. While you're not right. You should be. Ishmael Reed really hates the musical Hamilton. Because he says that by making Hamilton himself, a cool hip-hop, I dropping immigrant hero. It covers up Hamilton's real life as a slave owner and generally bad guy. So it's real re wrote a play called the haunting of Lin Manuel Miranda in which the author of Hamilton played by an actor the most beloved musical the modern times is he's visited by ghosts of people from history telling him how wrong he ends. That's the play the end. Of course, we guess he'd be visited by a ghost of Lin Manuel future who says don't worry about all this. I am. So rich. Is it being produced hoagies did a reading which the New Yorker ten in there hoping for backing so they can produce this play to appeal to the vast audience and people wonder, hey, as like puppy. I his Maria. Von Trapp is. Great earlier musical seventies. Get down from there fiddler. Heather quiz. First of all. She's a great sport. Then Heather, how did you know that all those answers.

Why could no one in Virginia think of any other Halloween costume? Our panelists are going to tell you about a current unsolved mystery somewhere in the world picked him on his telling the truth. You win the waiter of your choice on your voicemail. You ready to play? All right. I let's hear from mo- Raka. It wasn't long after Lisa DeRosa of Sydney. Australia reported her missing that it's collar was found outside the nearby Tun-lui daycare center, Dino was like family. She said about her three-year-old pet dingo then just a week later. Danny hartman's dingo went missing the end of its tail was found inside the daycare center as well. The chew toy of yet. Another missing dingo the next day, Sydney. Police inspector Bill Keith convened a press conference and announced what everyone already suspected baby eight these big. But which baby which baby from the daycare center was fearless and hungry enough to overtake and consume at least three thirty five pound Vero canines twenty two babies called in for questioning and to have the contents of their diapers examined. Suspicion eventually fell upon eighteen month old lily, grace, dela Cada. Not surprisingly, her mother olive vehemently denies the charges lily may have a healthy appetite and normally large incisors, and yes, it's true. That while I was nursing her ate a diet, rich and jackal meat. But that doesn't prove anything. The investigation continues. Baby. Go. Or so say, some people in Australia. That's for Morocco. Your next story of someone looking for clues comes from Roxanne Robbins Geneva, Switzerland has an alphabet problem specifically a scrabble problem about three months ago game lovers in the Swiss city found the letter n missing from new game box calls to manufacturer Mattel confirmed that the gangs had been delivered to stores intact. So someone in town was buying the game removing all the tiles of one letter resealing the box in shrink wrap and return to the store shelves reports. The BBC over the next few weeks customers reported the same problem, but with different letters D in December J last month and just this week two boxes head the F tile missing. No security cameras have images of the culprit. But the mystery has captivated game players all over Europe speculation ranges from a. Disgruntled deliveryman or an evil costs word puzzle fanatic to Mattel itself as an insidious way to boost sales. A spokesman for scrabble said to the BBC, quote, this is an unacceptable breach of fair play. And we will pursue this to the letter of the law. Somebody stealing random letters from scrabble sets in Switzerland. Your last day of mystery yet to be solved comes from Peter gross. Canadian police are looking for Mr. sexy, Ontario, Canada might sound like a strange setting for a tale of international mystery replete with stolen property fast cars sex, but that's exactly what happened this week in the city of Mississauga the Mississippi of on -tario what business to MRs police pulled over a speeding vehicle and after a quick check of the registration. They discovered that the vanity license plates on that vehicle had been stolen from another car and placed on that car. So sergeant Kerry Schmidt of the Tero provincial police posted pictures of the plates along with the following message on Twitter are these yours looking for the rightful owner of Mr. sexy license plates. They were other lawfully attacked to a muzzle driven by a seventeen year old driver going one hundred and fifty kilometers an hour. Just for the record. That's about ninety miles an hour about thirty. A years too early for midlife crisis. Officers knew the plates didn't belong to the teenager. When they pulled over and asked him. Are you Mr. sexy replied, please? Mr. sexiest my father, David. It also marks the first recorded incident of someone going on Twitter during work hours posting that they were looking for Mr. sexy and not getting fired. But this is far from the first vanity license plate in Brooklyn to rock. Our neighbors to the north in January Manitoba plates reading eight s m I l eight or assimilate were revoked due to concerns. It was an insult to indigenous people the owner of the plates, Nick Toller explained it was actually a reference to a famous saying by the board an alien species from Star Trek which allowed on -tario police to safely scratch, Mr. Toler off the list of potential, Mr. sexy. All right. There's somebody out there and they're going to get them. But they don't know who it is yet is it for more Raka of baby who might well be eating Ingo 's in Australia from Roxanne lobbyists, the mystery vandal who's removing random letters from scrabble sets in Switzerland or from Peter gross. The search for the Mr. sexy of Ontario, Canada, which of these is the real mystery in the week's news. I'm gonna go with Peter Peter the story of the search for this sexy. Well, we couldn't find this person who's missing, but we could bring you one of the people looking for him. The attack. That was sergeant Kerry Smith of the -tario provincial. Police talking about the search for Mr. sexy, Mr. sexy. If you're listening turn to yourself. Meanwhile, congratulations. Chris you got it. Right. Peter was of course. He's in. Mr. sexy wherever he is also happy. He's sexy. Thank you so much. You're playing Chris. Thank you. Now the game where we ask really important people to waste their time on unimportant things one of those popular democratic candidates of the twenty eighteen election cycle with Stacey Abrams of Georgia. Against Georgia's secretary of state who oversees elections it's a little bit like playing a baseball game against the unpire. She narrowly lost the race for governor. But that has not kept her off the national stage. Most recently giving the democratic response to the state of the union address. And now she's here. Stacey. We didn't know that everybody comes to gets to meet you if I know we should start by saying you presumably been listening from all stage. Do you have a response to the first half of our show? I do requires a teleprompter of fake non green screen and a union. All right. All right. To find out about the process of giving the state of the union response. But first of all, you must know that that is a cursed job. Right. Yeah. Right. So I don't have a job right now. I was free. Anybody mentions response to veto it doesn't matter. What party people say? Oh, yeah. Bobby Jindal looked like a baby and Marco Rubio with water and the democrat with the lips. And so you how did you say how did you plan that you would not end up on that list? I drank a lot of water early. I used a low gloss, but very moisturizing lipstick. And I really. Did you? It's technically called a response. Did you think at all about what you in -ticipant, President Trump might say? So you could respond to it. I would put it this way. I have heard him speak before. Yes. I assumed it would be some combination of demagoguery self aggrandizement two lines about something. Nice that he would three lines later overrule. Did you know that it would rhyme? That I missed and you know, I feel sorry for whoever thought that the right way to go. Another big question for the state of the union response is where you're going to do it. And what the background is people have tried various things you went for a union home. And you say and behind you all these people, but it was also true that unusually they were all blurt out. So you're like smoking speaking to us and their release blurry figures behind you. And I was like oh those ghosts that are haunting. Until she completes for them, the tasks they left on. The ghost of oats uncounted. Question. Have we met before because I went to theater camp with at least three girls named Stacy. It's an tire possible. Everybody knows you for your twenty eighteen gubernatorial campaign here in Georgia. But people may not know is this completely different career writing romance novels. Can you tell us about that? So I had very bad break up with my boyfriend's. He a chemical physicist, he's a wonderful person. And we're friends now I read this dissertation when I was in law school on Mike technology, anyway, nobody for that allow. Really interesting. And so I saw this thing he criti he discovered I was like you could appreciate it in Crete this chemical weapon that could be discovered by this physicist, and I told him about it. And he was like I could never happen. I'm like, this is why we broke up you have no imagination. So in school, I decided to write two things I wrote the very exciting treatise on the operational distance of the related business income tax exemption. And then I wrote rules of engagement, which is the romantic suspense novel. So I technically write romantic suspense. I kill a lot of people. And then those who survived can fall in love. And rules. Engagement in my ex-boyfriend. And the Genesis of the story languishes in prison for the rest of his natural. Visit such a pleasure to talk to you. We have invited you here to play a game. We're calling it's a fine borough beds. So we have established and you are successful writer of romances. But what do, you know about bromance, bro? The love that they're not speak its name. But instead shouts it at frat parties. We're going to ask you three questions about romance get to right? You our price. One of our listeners, the voice of anyone they like giving response on their voice mail. Bill is Stacey Abrams playing for he li- of pooer Georgia. This. Here's your first question is go way back which of these real example of a historical bromance as Saint Augustine used to invite his best pal Libya's to hang out in an actual cave with him in the mountains, which he called our beloved man cave. Be in the early eighteen hundreds composer friends Schubert with such close friends with poet FRANZ von Schober that he referred to themselves together as show, Bert. Or C, although it was edited out of many bibles there's one paragraph in the book of Genesis about Adam and his friend, Jeff. With Saint Augustine. I'm gonna go invented the man cakes. He did so much for the world. Into the audience. People believe the answer is B, and therefore I will throw myself on their mercy and blame them if I lose again. This. What are those famous romances, of course between bird, Ernie sesame? Assamese? We all know about the gay. They're not gay. They don't exist from the waist down. Can still make it work. Rumor that haunted. Burton Ernie for at least a decade. What was it a that? They were a hotdog hamburger brought to life by a wizard. Be that they were intended to be a sly parody when they were invented of Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew. Or C that Burt was secretly dead. I got dark really did. Feel like being the answer. I'm gonna give you a hand the head is this rumor was most prevalent in the nineties ninety. Say I think it's because we've a really dark in the ninety. It was exactly like Beatles thing. There was a conspiracy theory, you can tell debt because even though he's he's not dead. He was never alive. Last the romance. Between Ernest Hemingway James Joyce started in Paris in the nineteen twenties. Of course, Joyce Hemingway would often go to bars together and their night's usually ended when which of these happened. Joyce would get really drugs start spouting gibberish in hemming away with write it down eventually creating Finnegans wake. Be Joyce would get really drunk pick fights. And then hide behind Hemingway. Screaming Bill was having deal with him. See hemingway. We'd get really drunk and then eventually try to pick up Joyce saying come on. So what if you have a moustache Joyce's a woman's name, right? I think it's the first one I don't think Hemingway shared, so I don't think the last one. So I think by the process of limitation has to be what? What? So Bill how did Stacey Abrams? Do invis- little contest.
