Bill Curtis is going to perform few three quotations from the week's news if you can correctly identify explained just two of them you'll win in our prize any voice from our show. You might choose on your voicemail ready to go. Let's do it. Let's your first quote is a rhetorical question. Is Anybody dumb enough off to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader so who doesn't into believe that people are dumb enough to believe something that happens all the time. It could be president trump ferry so sometime this last summer the president made a promise to a foreign leader and somebody in the intelligence community was so upset they filed a whistleblower report by Law that report is supposed to be handed to Congress but the White House said so we don't know yet what the president actually said to whom he said it but whatever it is it must be worse than the stuff we already know go about and that can only mean he has sold the Earth to the aliens. Just leave me a golf course and some models. You could eat everybody else. Yeah you know what in his mind is a foreign leader he he truly may have been on the phone with mayor mccheese in trying to get a golf course opened up a McDonald exhausting it really is you know what else is exhausting and our hearts go out to this person. Whoever whoever it is the intelligence agents whose job it is is to listen to all of Donald Trump's phone calls. That's always the person I feel sorry. For any topic. There are experts and intelligent people around that have to listen to him. You know like with the hurricane there meteorologists did extreme right and they see him with a Crayon and you know all that's going on their head like I need this job. My kids are in school exactly all the people around him. It's a little bit like Frank. Sinatra had valet named Gillian Jili and once during Thanksgiving dinner. Don rickles told me this story Jillian Jili. They had it at his house and frank got in his car and hit the wrong pedal and drove into the living room right right in the car right. Jili only thing you could stay with us here. Is Your your next quote. I've always been more enthusiastic about costumes. Then is sometimes appropriate. That was a very prominent politician reacting acting to photos that surfaced this week of him in black face. Who Was it this time yes Justin Trudeau Prime Minister of Canada. The people are done. How could such a good looking charming guy ended up being such a jerk. The only people who saw that coming was every woman who's Ever Live Time magazine found a picture of the Canadian Prime Minister UH wearing brown face as they call it up there complete with a turban for an Arabian nights themed party back in two thousand one and to those who don't know two thousand one took place after eighteen sixty five the prime minister had a press conference where he apologized so much even Canadians. Were like dude tone it down. This is a tough one. I'm not sure where to go with. No I actually actually met him. Digit about two years ago completely randomly. I was doing a show an Ottawa and someone who worked at a parliament invited you he bite it all three comics to parliament and the other two blew it off but I went because we weren't doing anything in after lunch. They were like do you. WanNa meet Justin Trudeau and I was like yeah yeah. I mean what am I going to get to meet a head of state. Who Knew I should've hit him. He's now decked him. Yeah I didn't know but this this is this and he said like he said now he knows. It's racist but back then yeah well. You know innocent time two thousand or do we do we do we chuck this went up to the high alcohol content of Canadian beer now so he may lose his job but his political career is not necessarily over he can always the prime minister of Alabama who would think the Republican Party would-be anxious to welcome a Canadian. I know that's an immigrant who understands us all right Rebecca. Your last quote is the New York Daily News describing a crime committed in England this week that shocked the the world. The bobby's are flushing out the chairs who nick the Lou. The British bulldogs flat so that was a story about the amazing brazen theft of what toilet yes a gold toilet. The solid colleague gold solid gold working toilet was installed in a palace in England as part of an art exhibit the title of this Artwork Mark Was America and you know we deserve that sometime last week. Somebody walked in unbolted it. It is as a working toward I was a working toilet unbolted it and walked out with it's a toilet made of gold in a palace and it had less security than the toilet hoisted starbucks. The primary suspect who they have caught is reportedly planning on going with the defense will it didn't flushing. Can I panicked. We've been there. They still haven't recovered the toilet but when they do the owner says he'll be quite relieved. Okay do that all right. I understand sending unbolting part but toilets are how you do it. You have a hand truck and a clipboard because the accident when you walk through somewhere like you're supposed to be there and you have a clipboard. Nobody asked questions like Oh.

That is not that unusual. What's unusual is that the vehicle was a what it was there amish coach you're exactly right. It was an amish buggy yeah if this buggies Iraq and I think the bumper sticker usually says if this buggies Iraq and we're turning butter so so the police here there's something base and they found this amish buggy blasting tunes with a case of beer strapped to the top and young Amish men inside drinking other beers. The police pulled it over and the kids amish kids sought and ran off into the woods but of course the horses kept going leading to an exciting slow speed chase. When we talk about this we talk about this community and their devotion to their traditional ways but these kids clearly were not that devoted to this way of life? They were just amish. I I was impressed by their commitment to sort of tradition and and yet they were big speaker. These are like giant like they worked out this buggy so it was like an underground underground club right out. I thought it was adorable action and I think I think hip hop has now penetrated every market occur. I think once you get the amish jam you pretty much got it coming up.

What is Chinese topic swim than the clown. Everybody loves a clown from Penny wise to John Guilty. This week quickly read about a clown showing up an unusual place for an unusual purpose. Our panelists are going to tell you about it. Pick one is telling the truth in to win our prize waiter waiter of your choice on your voicemail ready to play first. Let's hear from Bob. Cat Goldthwait Peggy Russell of Leeds England thought surprising her daughter-in-law Kelly l. e. with a clown at Kelly's nursery. Theme baby shower was a fun idea. It was not well. Peggy did not know that Kelly who was seven and a half the months pregnant at the time suffers from claustrophobia the persistent irrational fear of clowns so when Pootie the clown entered the party on his unicycle recycle blowing his bicycle Horn Kelly screamed broken in tears and tossed the box diapers at the unsuspecting poodles head knocking him off of his unicycle then Kelly picked up a recently gifted in that stroller to beat Pootie with and lifting said stroller up causing a breaker water into going Labor while the panic shower guests looked on podium whose real name is Aaron Fisher and whose job is being. EMT had Leeds Fire Department knew exactly what to do sprung into action pootie reassured Kelly that he was just a man in a clown suit. Not a murderer satanic demon calmed down and delivered. Kelly's healthy seven pound baby boy. Now pootie is being herald a hero Peggy who booked pootie for the shower. Said said it's funny how things work out. It's actually cheaper to book a clown in the call. An ambulance Pootie said the whole time I was delivering the baby I kept imagining how funny would be a whole bunch of babies kept coming out of the cloud baby. Having a woman who is scared of clowns next story of a clown in a new part of town comes from Roxanne Roberts sex is no laughing matter but it should be say maxine. Thomas Flint the Scottish husband and wife marriage counselors who specialize in sexual incompatibility issues told told BBC radio this week that their most popular program is called clowning around in bed inspired by a performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Enj- Festival in two thousand and eleven the Flint's began incorporating clowns and their paraphernalia into treatment sessions quote the biggest obstacle ashamed embarrassment explain maxine this. Let's patients see how silly sex can be the doctor started by putting patients and oversized costumes costumes to take the focus off their bodies to talk about erectile dysfunction they use under inflated balloons the final assignment couples must attempt to have sex in the backseat of a tiny clown car in sex therapy and Scotland and your last story of a clown found outside the big top comes from Alonzo Bodden. Getting fired can be tough but at least least the country of New Zealand has a heart when called to what they call a redundancy meeting employees are allowed by law to bring someone with them for emotional support. Most people bring a friend or a spouse advertising exact Josh Thompson brought a clown and emotional support clown they got an email requesting a meeting with management which told him of his legal right to bring support person Josh fearing the worst but hoping for the best said quote I I thought either way it's best to bring in a professional so I pay two hundred dollars. Higher clown sure enough. He was fired but the clown did his job while Josh signed the papers giving him severance. The clown mimed crying big clown tears. Josh did say quote it was rather noisy him making balloon animals so we had to tell him to be quiet from time to time happily a picture taken the redundancy meeting with Josh Dress for business and the clown dress for clowning went viral so everybody came out well. Josh got another job in advertising and presumably the clown. We'll be getting lots. More bookings sure a firing isn't as much fun as a kid's birthday party said the clown but with it chapter two in theaters now a clown can't be too choosy about work all right crown showed up and personnel and spirit in an unusual place and we found out about it this week was it from Bobcat Goldthwait Pootie. The clown sent to a baby shower scares the woman so much the induces labor and then he helps the delivery delivery from Roxanne clowns being used in sex therapy in Scotland just to take the tension out of the equation or from Alonzo an emotional support clown alone accompanied the guy in New Zealand as he was getting fired which of these is the real story of an unexpected clown in the news and as a millennial. I gotta say the emotional support you gotta go to the Gym Donnie so your choice is Alonzo story of the emotional support clown at the firing well. We spoke to a reporter who covered the real story. A man in New Zealand was called into a work meeting and feared he laid off that he hired him. That's what happened that was on McGrady. A staff writer on the foreign desk at the Washington Post Democracy dies in darkness about the emotional support clown in New Zealand Alonzo is telling the truth he gets the point but more importantly oh you got it right you win a prize. Call it a birthday present if you will the voice and now the game where we ask people who have risen to the highest levels levels to come down back to ours. It's called not my job so Zach. Galifianakis is a comedian and movie star but he may be most well known for his Internet series between to ferns in it he interviews real celebrities and says really mean things to them and somehow the celebrities do not then arrange to have him killed between two ferns is now a movie. It's premiering on Netflix. Zach Galifianakis joins us now. Welcome to wait wait. Don't tell me it's a pleasure to have you. The I watched the movie which is hilarious and has a bunch of between two ferns interviews and celebrities actually want to be on your show right. They Wanna come and do this. I don't know I don't really know why they would want to do it but it's not a prank frank show. I'm not trying to prank anyone and if I understand correctly you tell the celebrities. Their job is basically to sit there and just well. I tell they don't have to be funny. They just have to sit there and be weirded out and we will give them insult adults to give back to me but sometimes the moment we just get talking and the insults Kinda fly naturally I've ah cut an interview short the person. I don't want to reveal the way that the person was acting so well. I thought they were gonNA choke me out parking lot so somebody was acting so so upset at your character that you honestly thought that this was going that badly and I kind ended up said we're done to the director and he said we don't have anything and I said well. I want my life you can you can say Florence Henderson it turned out that person just was that great of an actor. I was just fooled by them so but I don't try. I'm not trying to hurt anybody's feeling I just. I'm trying to cause weirdness yeah but it it is amazing for example. You did one with President Obama though yeah I forgot about that. Oh Yeah your mind and and and so you're you're going to go to the White House is rolling out the Obamacare obamacare thing and they were trying to get it around to the youth might watch and so when you got a chance go do this bit with President Obama. What did you say to yourself. I just couldn't believe we you know even when we got to the White House I was. I just thought they were going to that. It was never going to happen and I was nervous and actually I sat on some historic furniture that broke off at the White White House twice really different times the rope tie between you know the yeah it was next to the war room and it was the war or the map room and I didn't know that there was a ropes velvet rope situation and I had sat down on one of the seats and then a security guard blue is whistle at my ear and then I I was so nervous I did it again Zach. This is Roxanne Roberts it. Did the president have any sense of or do any of the celebrities you interview any sense. When you start what you're GONNA ask or. Is it all news to them as you ask. I I don't give them the questions ahead of time with President Obama though because of limited time that one was more more scripted than the others but he kind of ran with it and a lot of that is Improv really so India interviewed President Obama you sit with the then president of the United States and you say if I remember correctly. How does it feel to be the last black president and you said that to him and I legitimately thought he was about to kill you where he doesn't have to kill me. Has People around him. That was one of the questions where I asked his speechwriter. Have I pointed to that question Russian before we taped it and I said has he seen that question and the speechwriter looked at me and said Yeah Yeah I think so and just walked off like of course he had seen it so when you were sitting there with the president and you didn't know that he knew you were about to ask that and you did it anyway. I'm playing an idiot so when you're playing an idiot you kind of get away with things too because part of the comedy for for this thing is how not to be as a human being right. Yes so I don't know he just took it in stride and his response I think was made up what what was do you remember his response He just told he i. I can't remember exactly what it says which is weird because I watch it sixteen times a day yeah I I I have to say and I've seen baskets which is great as well. You often play people who are terrible people they're just they're not self aware not nearly as talented as they think they are. they're mean to people that's correct. So when will you be running for president. Yeah Zach Galifianakis. We have asked you here to play the game. We're calling between two dern.
