"Well, there's a few other wrestling arrests that I wanted to bring up that are kind of a little bit more humorous. This one at least actually I will leave with that one, but did you guys know that we talk about juana being sold for three beers, but it's common knowledge that Ric Flair was sold on the black market as a baby. I did not know that. I had no idea. Unbelievable, right? She was born and Memphis in 1949, the same time and place that a woman named Georgia tan was running one of the largest child trafficking operations in U.S. history. She operated the Tennessee children's home society an orphanage adoption agency, which was really a front for her to sell babies to wealthy out of state couples. She bribed nurses and doctors to turn newborn over to her to her, tell the parents they were stillborn. And other times she played the role once again of a helpful social worker trying to remove children from a bad environment. And she was finally arrested, but it was estimated that the Tennessee children's home society had stole over 5000 babies. 5 thousand kids going missing. Going missing. Or presumed to be dead, which is even worse. Yeah, yeah. And flair was adopted on March 18th, 1949, shortly before the adoption agency was closed for good. His real name was most likely Fred Phillips seeing as how the agency destroyed or manufactured most documents, unlikely that the nature of ever find out what happened to Israel biological parents. So there's a little bit of a trivia for you there. That was going to be my next question of if he was ever connected back to his initial birth family. I've heard of stories like that but didn't know that he was involved Fred Phillips is definitely less marketable than Richard fleer. Freddie Phillips. Thank you. Yeah, the Freddy Phil's nature boy, but another great one that I always, I've heard this before, this is back in 1997. Russell called Billy Joe Travis was arrested once again in Memphis for unpaid child support during live TV. I have read that story. That's incredible. Yeah, so Memphis was a place where they'd have live TV every Saturday morning. For years and years and years, this is, of course, Jerry the king Lawler's company that's been running since the 70s. And Saturday morning, Memphis television, maybe up until the last ten, 15 years was always the highest rated show in the market. People would watch Saturday mornings in massive amounts. They would do, I don't know, a ten or 13 or 15 market share. Incredible. So the officers showed up at TV and wanted to arrest Travis and Lawler convinced them to wait until he was doing his interview on live TV. So he convinced them to wait until it would be very public and draw attention. Exactly. So old school Carney, right? So he's doing his interview. Cops come and arrest them for the unpaid child support, but then they turn into a story where Travis, who was the babyface, blames it on Brian Christopher, who is the heel in the fight, and so the Intrepid baby face was set up by the vicious heel. That is fantastic. Nothing like some baby mono drama on live TV to really spice things up a little bit. Exactly exactly. And one last story that I'll probably never talk about this again, there's been no reason to. Is the night that I was arrested in Kentucky, and I was arrested for the horrible crime of public intoxication. Well, now if you're ever in Kentucky, we could just bail you out, man. I mean, it's all good now. You have to come get me, but it was right over the border. Cincinnati. Cincinnati's technically in Kentucky, but it's Ohio as well. Right. And we had a show and we were having some drinks after the show and hurricane helms lost he got really angry at me and punched me in the face while we were in the back of a car of a taxi. taxi pulled over on the side of the road and said, get out. I'm not having a fight in the side of the road. So we got out and kind of gotten a little bit of a brouhaha and then the cops pulled up. The rest of the both of us for public intoxication. And took us to jail where we signed autographs and took pictures and then got bailed out. In the morning, the horrible fine for public intoxication. You want to know how much it is? 50 bucks. 25 bucks for a night in jail. I heard a comedy bit about somebody being arrested for public intoxication. It's like the rest of me for being drunk in public. I was in a car and then you sent me into public I was drunk at a car. It was fine. I was fine and a taxi exactly. So a little bit more of a levity situation rather than la dama del silencia. But once again, you know, it's very interesting to hear all these different crimes that you guys are able to dig up. You've always got great topics and great subjects and I'm sure when you guys come up with something else will be we'll be doing another episode again very, very soon. No, it's always a great time, Chris. We appreciate you having us. All right guys, thank you some more topics and send them over. We'll do. Thank you. All right, cheers, guys. Thanks. So you may have.

He said that they were turning those funerals into patriotic pep rallies and we had our duty to go and inject some bible truth into the conversation there was also a we had been protesting funerals. You know long before then. Laid had been primarily focused on. You know people who had large platform celebrities gay people who had died of aids anybody locally in our area in our part of the world you must remember the faces of some of those people having that kind of abuse shouted them as they're attending attending.

This surprising thing about fred. Phelps is the nine in the nineteen seventies. he was a major civil rights lawyer. Who did a lot of work destroying jim crow laws in the state of kansas on behalf of african americans in the united states. Is that something he he walked away from or d. Seen easterner contradiction. There them are no contradiction. There was no tension between these two positions that he espoused the one you know completely anti anti-racist and you know the civil rights work that he did and then the anti-gay work because both of those positions were derived from the bible. You know so the the passage that my mom would quote to us was god has made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on the earth right so there is no. It's a one law shall be to him that his home born into the stranger. The sojourns among them. Yes so the idea is that god created all human beings and we have a duty to treat everyone equally in the eyes of the law So that was that was one side. And then the anti-gay stuff came from these passages in in leviticus thou shalt not lie with mankind as of womankind at his abomination passages. And you know the romans..
