It share the love audience? They WanNa make sure that you know your special okay fills thank you arendal. You're going to play WHO's bill. This time Bill Curtis is going to read you three quotations from this week's news correctly identify explain. Just two of them. You'll win our prize. Any voice from our show. You might choose on your voicemail ready to play. Yup All right your first quote is from President Trump and he said it while he was pointing at Mike Pence on Wednesday. Evening wishing good luck. The president was generously giving Vice President Pence job of managing what the Corona Virus yes corona virus or as they call it cove in nineteen. Aol screen name like the idea that it went through eighteen tries. We've got it. The viral infection of course spread out of China infecting thousands with the disease and millions more with stupidity. There are people in America refusing to go to Chinese restaurants because the disease started in China. Guys calm down. Pf Chang is not a real person. You won't get the virus there. I L not that virus as a as an Asian person with a cold right now I have to say. I've never felt more powerful in an airport sneezing while making eye contact with white women. Getting road to myself fabulous whole planes evacuated now. You might be wondering how Mike Pence got this important responsibility. Well he the president gave it to them after telling people in the White House that the vice president quote didn't have anything to do that's true. Trump is such a bad parent. Daddy I'm bored. Fine here run this massively complex program for which you have expertise this is how barren ended up being in charge of the Coast Guard. Now as you know as you probably know I should say. The president held this press conference. Because he's really concerned about the stock market so he had this press conference which he wanted to project calm and control. The federal government is on top of it and the stock market responded by dropping the largest single-day drop in points in history on Thursday. Three more press conferences like that and we will be back to bartering with shells. Everybody in my generation like saw that and was like. Oh No our retirement funds. Actually I think at this point. Dying of Corona virus is a workable all right here and off his your next quote. Okay Oh so this is what Thanksgiving at White. People's houses light that was CNN. Legal analyst Elliot Williams talking about what argumentative shout fest on Tuesday evening? The Democratic debate. Yes indeed the Democratic Debate Randolph. Hurry up. Each democratic debate seems to be getting more and more combative and shout. He if they continue like this the final one next month will be held in the octagon. Amy Klobuchar will seize the nomination after she finally chokes out people to jail. But the best thing you can say about this particular disastrous debate. Was that for once. It wasn't primarily the candidates fault instead. People blame the moderators an all star group of CBS News reporters. And for some reason Joaquin Phoenix says. The joker the moderators lost control. Early on the refuse to rain in the candidates are keeping any water. They're like substitute teachers. Who didn't even have the foresight to bring a movie? There were some genuine dislike on that stage. There really was. I had the feeling for the first time it was kind of like the the only thing that was missing. Somebody just pitch slapping in great to see Your Elizabeth Warren. Give a strong backhand to Mike Bloomberg misjudging in her hand just goes right above his head. I I don't think that amy. Klobuchar would make an incredible president but I do think she should be made secretary of spanking. Buddha jet no matter who wins. I think that's a new cabinet position that amy is uniquely qualified. Real it really is like real housewives of the Democratic Party expecting a full on full on hair. Poll it's although although I think that that. Amy's antipathy for Pete is now exceeded by Elizabeth Warren Hatred of Mike Bloomberg. She hates Mike Bloomberg. What did those Mike? Bloomberg ads are so lake. They're trying to make Mike Bloomberg seem relatable right so they're like oh what's happened to people. Oh financial insecurity at thirty nine. Mike Bloomberg was fired and then he started his own business. I was like what did they fire him for? Leahy he got. I will tell you exactly healing office supplies and you know. He got squeezed out in a Wall Street. Merger any walked away with ten million dollars. That's the fiery firing. That is very relatable. That is the fire. We'll say I do relate to Mike Bloomberg because I did spend outrageous amount of money to go to theater school where I was humiliated on stage. I can't all right here. Your last quote. Give us your grumpiest old. Then give us your golden girl. That was the head of reality. Tv AT ABC announcing a new version of what show but this time just for seniors hint for this well. If you get this question Right Randolph. I will give you a rose. It is the bachelor. Yes of course is the very popular show which handsome men and women are bred with each other to create a super race of beautiful shallow people. They will have a new edition for people. Sixty five and older this is. This is not a new concept. Just picture Tuesday's democratic debate but with more kissing. That's what that debate was missing. Honestly this week guessing zero make out session zero roses. Who who would you WanNa see me okay? So here's my question about this show since sex is such a huge part of the real bachelor all right if you sort of. Take away all the fake boobs and the and the fantasy suites. What do you got well? Let's just says you're taking away. I wasn't there like that outbreak of committee and a nursing home a couple of years. That's where they got the inspiration version older. The older contestants will have a fantasy suite. It'll just be to Barcalounger on. Hdtv in a phone on which their grandchildren call every day. I like how they haven't had a non white bachelor or Bachelorette yet but they're like what else can we do? I I know Easier didn't they already do this? Show and it was called Cocoon Bill. How did Randolph? Doing our quiz love came to play. He got him all right. Congratulations thank you so much. Take care and Too Five right panel. It is time for you to answer some questions about this week's News Joel. We learned something amazing about Hollywood this week that there is a new way to tell who the villain is in any movie. What is it They have the least amount of lines. No that's not true. I know I know a better clue. You'll never hear them say. Siri helped me bury the body. Oh the wait so the villain of every you can tell the villain of every Hollywood movie because they use or they don't use the virtual assistant not specifically virtual assistant an iphone. An iphone exactly right. That's IT villains. Never have iphones. Oh Director Ryan Johnson. Let slip what is. Apparently a deeply held secret among filmmakers that apple refuses to let their devices be used by bad guys in movies and TV. They don't want to associate the IPHONE with evil. I mean think of the innocent children that made them move. You're not allowed. If you're making a movie you are not allowed to show an iphone. Being used for something cruel or mean. Just nice things like ignoring your family. What are the villains? Have Blackberries Androids? Oh yeah the villains. All have androids. They deserve it. Of course they're usually has to be an in story reason why the villain won't use an IPHONE. This explains why. Thanos was always complaining about apple maps. He got into a contract. Like it's a big. I can't get out of it. I gotTA do two more years with this Google phone. I'm just GONNA destroy half of humanity and I'm still in the contract et Napoli.

The waiter of your choice on your voicemail ready to black I am I. Let's hear from Joel Kim Booster. There's an old saying in show business. You either die a hero or you live long enough to become a spokesperson for major corporate entity. The next in a long line of big name sellouts might shock some fans. As sinead O'Connor the singer many will remember ripping apart a picture of pope. John Paul the second in her now infamous one thousand nine hundred Saturday night live performance can be seen in an ad for staples office supplies in the AD. The irish-born Singer holds up a picture of the pope but no longer has the finger strength. Tear it instead. She feeds it into a handhold paper. Shredder while singing a version of her hit. Nothing compares to you but the you you it's the handheld paper shredder the response has been decidedly mixed with some older viewers unable to let go of their vision of O'Connor as a sacrilegious fire starter while many more are too young to even understand why the video has gone viral in the first place. Who's that Lady One? Youtuber commented is joke that her hair got caught in the shredder. The controversy or mystery hasn't seem to bother the office supply retailer when pressed for comment Michael Her wit senior. Vp of marketing and merchandising for the company stated simply where a fan of Miss O'Connor's music and we're thrilled that there has been so much interest around hand. How document shredders the pope however just said again? Sinead O'Connor appears in a commercial staples using a paper shredder. Tear up a picture of the pope. Your next story of someone cashing in comes from Roxanne Roberts if you walked into Bloomingdale's lingerie department in the last few days you might have seen a sexy push-up bra. Called the Gloria named for feminist icon. Gloria Steinem a woman better known for Burning Bras than selling them but yes the eighty five year old legend has teamed up with AARP and maiden form to launch her first brassiere specifically designed for red. Hot GRANDMA'S I used to say that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. She told The New York Times at my advanced age. I've come to realize that a sexy fish sometimes wants a sexy bicycle. Steinem who famously went undercover as a playboy bunny in nineteen sixty three explained. She's never been against bras per se. Just the boring ones. That look like straitjackets. The Gloria comes in three colors nude red and black and two styles a sports bra and push up which says steinem lifts my breasts back to where I can see them all proceeds for the BRA which sells for fifty dollars go to free mammograms for elderly women. Gloria Steinem endorsing a push up Bra. Your last story of soul selling comes from Luke Burbank. Bone bone bone bone bone bone bone bone bone bone. Not Tell me what you GonNa do when judgment comes for you if you've got two years in a heart you know that's the opening line from the song crossroads by ninety s hip hop sensation bone thugs and harmony. But IT TURNS OUT. The band recently faced a different version of that question. Tell me what you're GonNa do when Buffalo Wild Wings comes for you. The answer was announced this week. They're officially changing their name from bone thugs and harmony to boneless thugs in harmony as part of a marketing stunt four buffalo wild wings. Or just be dubs. If you're my friend Camaro Kev. And that's not all the individual band members are changing. Their names to crazy bone will become crazy. Boneless flesh and bone will become flesh in boneless and wishbone will become Brian. Just kidding. He'll be wished boneless. The only holdout is member. Lazy Bone is quoted as saying I ain't changing changing our name to boneless is preposterous and quote. Despite the holdout boneless thugs in harmony. Merch will be going on sale soon at the restaurant. Chain including t shirts hats and gold chain with a boneless chicken on them. No word yet on if the partnership will seep into the music of boneless thugs but if they put a song called why did. I order these wings so hot God. I'm sweating can I please have some more blue cheese or something to dip them in? It's probably a marketing thing. Somebody Somebody Andrews sold out. Was it from Joel. Kim Booster Sinead O'connor who now tears up her picture of the pope with a handy hand held paper shredder from staples from Roxanne. Roberts was Gloria Steinem. Who's now endorsed her own branded? Push up bra or from Luke Burbank. The hip hop group bone thugs and harmony is now boneless thugs in harmony to promote buffalo wild wings. Which of these are the real story of a sellout in the news or having. Just come from a chicken restaurant. It wasn't buffalo wild wings. I'm going to go see the wild wings bone bone. But you're going to go for the bone thugs and harmony story from Burbank. Well we spoke to somebody who is involved with the real story bone bugging me changed their name to bone thugs and harmony.

One are prize. The Voice of your choice in your voicemail. Congratulations thank you thank you. Thanks for the candidate. I'll see you at the crossroads. Sandra bye bye and now the game where we ask People. We admire to do something. They don't understand it's called. Not My job will. Arnett specializes in playing rather unpleasant people but in a way that makes them adorable. He was job on arrested development. He's the voice of Lego Batman and he just finished the sixth and final season of playing the lead role on Bo. Jack Horseman on Netflix. We hope he's actually pleasant. In Real Life Will Arnett. Welcome to wait wait. Don't tell me no. I cannot count all the things that you've done that I've so much loved going back to thirty rock and a lot of other things. But let me ask you. Do you think that my characterization of your typical role was correct? You tend to play people who are not that pleasant. Well Yeah you know. It's it's a lot better than than some people describe it as That I play holes and I I tend to see them as just broken people. I find characters who are a quite stupid and be quite confident to be really funny to me and then they have some at usually like to. I like to think that they have some underlying major sort of psychosis happening something. That's deriving them to be this way. That's that's how I kind of justify it right. So they're they're mean and sometimes abusive the people around him but they're they're hurting inside your way to hell with that anyway. I once read that. You didn't intend to end up comedy as much as you have that you were going to be a serious actor. Yeah I that was. That was my hope That I would end up as I wanted people to take me really seriously and anyway. That didn't happen but still to this day. But you know it's fine Fine I also say that like people say. Did you do sketch or stand up? I said no no no. I was too dumb to think of that as an option. I didn't even I was like. Oh Yeah I should have done sketch. Yeah but now here you are just very successful. You poor guy. You just finished a season six of Bodak which is about a washed up Hollywood actor who's also a horse when you first got this script where you would all. Did you have to be convinced or did you love it right away? You know it was one of those who remember when I was first sent to me. They didn't really say anything they just said. Read this really funny script and the first page I remember thinking what and then but then it was so funny you know we. We made this It was something. He was undeniably. Funny in great and of course as you remember that first season especially the first episode wasn't as heavy but you could see that there were kind of undertones there something else going on this guy who had a of self loathing etc etc. And I'm like Oh yeah was my kind of Guy. I just saw terrific. It's it was really. It's been quite a journey because this very broad comedy as you say ended up this very dark and sometimes very serious and moving exploration of this guy's serious problems which is weird because he's still a horse I would say it four considering that it's that he's a horse it's one of the most human story I got a part of. It is kind of weird. Are you going to Miss Beau Jack? Now that you're done with him Yes and no In that yes it was. It's been such a great thing to be a part of no in the sense that You know it's quite heavy and kind of often quite depressing the most depressing cartoon ever made. I will be wanted people to take you seriously. I know well I got it and then many times. We've finished recording. I look through the across. You know through the glass at Raphael Abubakar. I'd say you are going to pay for all my therapy. This might be the show. Was You therapy? I want to ask you about a couple more things. I discovered just this week something that I should have figured out because I've seen them dozens and dozens of times. Yeah yeah no we did. Have that kind of trained connection know that you are the voice of GMC trucks. And I don't think I recognized it because in those ads. You're so sincere. About how great a truck it is when I would expect you to say something like forty thousand dollars for a pickup come on. I mean that's what I'd expect pure let me first of all say pay our great trucks their professional grade yeah. I've heard that I've heard that. Hey will this is Luke Burbank? I'm a huge fan. I'm just wondering like if I were to see you on the street I would. I would have to really stifle the urge to come up and sort of like yell. Some Job Luth. Line at you is there. Is there a particular line from that? Show that you are okay with people saying to you in the one you like less. I just want to know what to do when I meet you. Well just first of all.

Maybe the most famous boat Jack was the character. Jack Dawson played by Leonardo Di Caprio. In titanic now the cast of that movie endured a lot of hardships on the set but maybe the worst was when what happened. A as practice for pivotal scene to Caprio insisted on painting every member the crew like one of his quote. French girls be an extra trying to impress. James Cameron actually drowned himself to show his commitment or see the entire cast and crew was dosed with. Pcp which somebody put into the chowder. During a lunch onset.
