"To get the most. Out of his skill position players. And maybe it's using trade quantum it on more horizontal route on shallow crosses on planned to let him create separation there and just get the football in his hands because he's an explosive player. That rewind Chris to 2016 2nd round draft pick Mike Thomas. If you re drafted at 2016 class, Where would Mike Thomas, go now? Man. He would definitely go. She's in the top five. Probably. Ah, and I remember which I certainly fell victim to the Laquan Treadwell hype in that class and Josh Toxin. I did have. Michael Thomas is my third wide receiver in that draft class. I was a big fan. He was I certainly didn't think that he was going to be a record breaking wide receiver this early in his career like you've been, but he had just completely well rounded game in Ohio State. It was hard to really find a flaw with him. And again, I'm bring up to combine a lot. I'm a big proponent of athleticism translated to the NFL at his side at 6263 to 15. He had a really good time by three cone drill. The agility. The vertical didn't have to run for three. To show me that he's a high level athlete for being that big, fantastic hands as we've seen during his career with the scene, he would be one of the first picks if they re draft that 2016 class because he's just Hit the ground running and has proven that even when all the attention is on him, and he's getting safety is over the top number one corners week to week he's going to produce at a record setting global. 149 receptions A year ago, 91 went for a first down. Yeah, that's incredible, And that's kind of what he did at Ohio State, and I think that was someone of the knock on him. And probably why he thought of the second round beyond that running super fast that he kind of had this. Ah, Specialty as being a possession receiver. They really didn't use him a lot on the field, not a lot of big plays for him. But in this offense, and like I said, with Drew Brees methodically wanting to move the foot ball down the field, probably now more than ever. If you're getting that first down rate from your number one wide receiver, you're going to be a pretty good offense, like the scenes have been, even as you breeze. Arm strength is kind of deteriorated over the past couple of seasons. But getting off the line, beating press coverage, sharper out running and strong hand to win in traffic. That's what you get with Michael Thomas. That's why I think he's easily one of the top two or three wide receivers in the league. Because how do you think Emmanuel Sanders fits in this offense? He fits perfectly because he's a separation based wide receiver. And again Drew Brees is going to want to see Receiver's open within 5 to 10 or 15 yards down the field, and I think earlier in his career, certainly in Denver, and even before that, with the Steelers early on, Emmanuel Sanders could really stretch it vertically like he was a speed option as some you And for those early season in his pro career, But now his sharper out running, he can run intricate routes that where he needs to change directions. Throttle down, explode the other direction. In that short to intermediate range, So certainly all the attention is going to be on Michael promise. But Emmanuel Sanders, who really didn't lose a step over the last couple seasons, came back very well from that Achilles injury. But I don't think that he's maybe not as fast, deep Ah, that he could still take the little the defense maybe occasionally, but he's still one of the best throughout runners in the league, even though he's over 30 years old, and he's going to feast on facing number two cornerbacks all season. Krista Paso NFL draft analysts here for sports he was talking about. He expects a big year for Marcus. To have important. I agree with them, Chris Shifting gears a little bit of conversation we've had throughout the show today. Would you trust Jamis Winston for three or four games in this Saints offense and I said yes, and I would because of Sean Payton and because of the style of offenses is and and because Shawn's on a debt play call of that recognizes the player's strength and Teddy Bridgewater. I think Jameis Winston's a better quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. So if Teddy Bridgewater has success in this office, I think Jameis Winston would as well Do you agree? I totally agree, And I think that is why, after yes, James Winston through 30 interceptors last year, but he also threw 33 touchdowns he in terms of yards per attempt. He's been one of the most efficient passes in the NFL. Like since he's been in the league. Hi, seven Low eight and in the yard for a temp. Those were lofty numbers. I think that's the reason why he signed a one year, $1 million contract after being the number one overall pick in 2015. Because after playing with Bruce Arians, that was, you know, Ah, coach that wanted James wanted to take risks. And then I think halfway through the season that I kind of wish we reined it in. Sean Payton's offense is very quarterback friendly. And we saw last year the same twin What? 450 with Teddy Bridgewater. Just don't make a mistake. You have a good defense. Check it down. Alvin Kamara, look for Michael Thomas and also have Sanders in this offense as well. I think it's the perfect Nihilistic change for Jamis Winston to be in an offense where he doesn't feel like he needs to force the football into double coverage or make ridiculous place. He's gonna see receivers you could get open, and he can trust Emmanuel Sanders and Michael Thomas. Get the screen game working. So if there is, you know another Drew Brees injury. I think that like you mentioned I like Teddy Bridgewater, but I think Jamie's Winston's more talented and it's different. From offense that he was in in Tampa, but I think it's exactly what Yeah, You can come from that, Bruce Arians know, risk it no biscuit kind of thing, and it's applejack reproach. Here in New Orleans. Chris, you outstanding anything. I didn't ask you. You wanna add? Make sure you throw out there and in particular where folks can read your You're right upon Marcus Davenport, your take on him. Yeah, just CBs sports dot com. I'm doing some right up on the big college football players who have decided up out and they're just going to enter.

Getting Naked in San Francisco: A History

"Who other than reporter just plot check could take on this not safe for work assignment off she goes from. The state of California has indecent exposure laws, but those only apply if someone is being sexual like masturbating in public or intentionally offensive flashing someone. But what if you're just hanging out naked minding your own business? California leaves that up to local governments. For the first half of the Twentieth Century San Francisco didn't have public nudity laws. FRISKIN S- just didn't go nude much but then the sixties arrived and with it naked people. Some saw disrobing as a form of political artistic or personal expression college students got a taste for streaking and then there were the hippies. It's just delightful to be in I'll be in and that's what this is another exotic prank to add to a growing list of student oriented rites of Spring. It's sort of a happy happening for hippies in San Francisco hippies wanted to get closer to nature and they got naked a lot in golden gate park. Here's a quote from police chief. Thomas Hill it wasn't uncommon for a Gal that come out of the bushes there in the. Panhandle. Without a damn stitch and stand right in front of you with our hands up. I was out in the park in two started going to it on the lawn beside me just to remind you sex is sexual and as such already illegal according to the state. But still conservatives wanted tougher local laws to prevent this kind of behavior and they eventually got nudity banned in the parks. However, the rest of San Francisco was still fair game. As time passed other cities made public nudity illegal among them, San Jose, and Berkeley Berkeley's interesting because it's been mostly due to one naked Guy Andrew Martinez a student at the University of California Berkeley. Decided that American society is sexually repressed and in an effort to write things he began attending classes and going everywhere else in the nude save for a pair of sandals backpack people theorized that Martinez was able to go nude without major complaint for so long because he was easy on the is Martinez attempted shock tactic soon, became old news among his fellow students to me was simply the naked guy. Administrators however sent Martinez home to stay warm until his case can be considered by a student conduct board in Nineteen ninety-two Martinez was expelled showed up naked to his disciplinary hearing at UC. Then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three here arrived naked to a Berkeley city council meeting members were offended and voted to make public nudity a misdemeanor crime. Back in San Francisco Nudist, enjoy their time in the Sun City developed a reputation for bodies in the buff especially at certain public events like folsom street fair a leather fetish festival or Beta breakers of rambunctious twelve k race who was an exhilarating experience people on the sidelines cheering. Go naked people go. All right. This is a rich Pasco in nineteen, ninety eight he started running naked in Beta breakers. Pasco is also the coordinator of the Bay Area Nature rests we're group of people who believe that the human body is God's divine creation nothing to be ashamed of, and that our interaction with Mother Nature is enhanced by removing the barrier of clothing. POSCO says it wasn't just public events where people could let it all hang out there also newt approved beaches in certain places where nudists would congregate lose a group of people in San Francisco who thought that going new to Jane Warner Plaza would be a good idea. It's that plaza in the Castro with a few benches where the streetcar stops, it's a little urban park. In this little urban park became an urban nude beach,

"President based operations, expecting that he will brief the media here shortly again. What we know is that this morning First reported that the Cardinals Have another positive test. Reportedly a player that brings them to eight players and six staff members. Cardinals and Cubs tonight. We're postponing the whole Siri's has been post pawn. The Cubs. Are headed back. To Chicago. Tonight. Tomorrow and Sunday will be games 89 and 10. That the Cardinals miss consecutively. And we will bring you the latest As this story develops. We will bring you the fact as we learn them, but that is what we know. Right now, But we're hanging out if you want to call in if you wanna chat. If you want to talk PJ Championship Tiger Woods on the course right now, man, I love these West Coast majors. Because it's so great. Tohave. Prime time major championship golf on Get another couple of hours of this is Tiger, Justin Thomas and Rory. Brooks Capta. They're all about making the turn at TPC Harding Park. I love watching majors that public courses to like TV, see Harding Barker, Bethpage. Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, although that's just a different beast. But No courses. You can go on play. Got buddies in New York. Who play Bethpage and you play the black course all the time. Get in line and Good luck. I also totally believe. In the correlation between these big time events being on in Tiger Woods plane and then people wanted to get out and play because I've played a ton over the last couple of months. And this weekend. Especially tomorrow. Times are tough. Compared to the last few weeks in the last month or so. They were tough when Courses were opening back up and people were getting out. But they are really tough tomorrow and I bet that's a tone of people wanting to get out and play. And then saddle in and watch the PGA Championship. Thomas dialed in it. 4367 900. Tom, What's going on here on came Alexe. Aye, aye, aye. And I heard people talking about the baseball bubble. I just wanted to run it by. I think I have a concept that would work, But I'm sure Ah, we're going to be pitfalls, but You know they're talking about playoff bubble. Now we get that far. But what about you could have been a bubble for each division right. The street division's using this Central Division as example. You got the car nose in their division again. Nationally, Central's got five teams America, except it's got five teams. They're the 10 teams are playing each other, right, correct. So so doing the math. I figure you only need to stadiums. You play three games in one stadium there during the day and you play, too. And the other one. And for the East Coast, you had the choice of either Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles. That would be that could be a bubble city about Larry and you got in New York City. Got the Mets Yankees, then a nationally, could you Chicago? To Cairo come sky white socks. The West Coast. You had two choices in the Bay Area or the area. Angel Daily Dodgers are open and dying, so that would have cut down. You know, they would have stayed because they're only playing those teams so that could have been the bubble that would have been. I mean, I don't think about that all along, and I didn't understand why they didn't go and I know the players did want to travel. And I know there's there's probably a huge cross there, but but it sure would have cut down. But then again, the carnal seem to be the only team that's been having a problem with this, besides tomorrow and tomorrow and seem to got by it so But I just want to run it by and see what you thought. Yes. You need five games a day, so You'd have to play it probably Oh, I mean, the issue would be getting three games in one ball park in a day and then getting all of the like. You have to get all of those guys out. You'd have to completely sanitized and disinfect you would imagine the clubhouses. A dugout. Anywhere that those players or any personnel is. I mean, like, I just think it's It's really hard to turn around that much baseball because I've been over at Busch Stadium and I've seen what they have to do and what they did to get that ballpark ready before they even had any baseball and I think that's the challenge. Tom and You know there's a follow up then I guess the other challenges If you have any then positive tests popping up. Then you're in real trouble with schedule at least right now. Theoretically and put the Cardinal's aside for a minute, But everyone else the Marlins and the Phillies and everyone else affected by this. The Brewers and the Tigers. Because they have the ability to travel within their geographic division. It makes sense and you have the ability to start making up these games if you had to start trying to cram doubleheaders in To, you know, And and And what if you have four or five days of bad weather in Chicago or New York, you're sunk. So I I understand what you're saying and I imagine that something like that was discussed. That's that's almost kind of like how they talked about maybe having a bubble in Arizona and a bubble in Florida. Remember that? Oh, yeah, I kind of have everybody there, you know, And it's also I think just harder to bubble in big cities you're talking about you have to, you would essentially have to reserve an entire hotel for three months. Because if you have 10 if you have 10 teams You know, the cardinal will help the economy going anyway, theoretically, but it's just, you know. Another challenge. I totally get what you're saying, though, And I think yeah, that's that's the most ideal case, but you know, they went over a lot of scenarios and just with this, many teams having a play 60 games It's really, really tough, but not totally totally get what you're saying and If they can get through the regular season. I think that if anything, maybe they'll have more data from the N B a in the NHL, and then maybe they can figure out what kind of a bubble would be realistic for the post season, man. Hey, Can I ask you another question? Real quick, So I gotta take a break. But what? What do you think's gonna happen if the Cardinals miss many more games and nobody this Assuming nobody else gets sick, and I mean any other teams, you think they're going to start They're almost going to have to start forfeiting. Good question, and I've seen a couple things circulating. I don't know about forfeiting, but I will answer you in a second. I do have to brake. But, Tom, I'll get to that in a second, because that will be I'm sure asked to John Mozeliak as well. Tom. Thanks for the call, Man. We'll take a break. I'll be back in a moment. We'll get to that. And more still hoping to hear from Oh, Chris Robby hanging out till eight o'clock to pop up show just like you know Eddie Murphy at the Improv shop Back in the eighties on KMOX. Hi, Carol from l A here when we rescued Sadie, our shelter said she was a lab mix, but that didn't seem right because of all of her energy. So we decided to test her DNA with embark.

From a management perspective and two usual kind of business school books approach to but in reality for me a lot of. My corporate influences have been really nontraditional. So. There is a book called the art spirit by an artist named Robert. Henry from the Ash can school in eighteen. Ten. Nineteen twenty really early times who interestingly enough he He kind of broke down in enlightened my thinking about creativity along time ago and interesting enough I find a lot of the things that that influenced me over time. Or less the business books no less the how books in really more books that were philosophical. So a one level Robert Henry's take on creativity. Of starting with what you have in once you are in working from there was incredibly important. I would say from a strategic perspective when I was a teenager a book called the Book of five rings by Miyamoto Musashi, which is the the book that the probably considered to be the greatest summarize Japan wrote in the sixteenth century about strategy literally ten days before he died. And it's kind of the sun, Suu, art of War for Japan, but it's much center. And actually was adopted by the Harvard Business School. Thirty years ago as required reading and in that book it talked about. How humans are essentially broken down and Thomas elements of wind fire and water in the void. And talked about how you lead teams and so a lot of ways was interesting for me is the fact that this summary. Talked about the fact that human beings are multi variant the metaphor for him. Was the idea that when you're actually pulling together people, you don't try to make one-size-fits-all actually aknowledged what people's capabilities in what their? Lack of talents and whether great talents are without judgment. So the analogy was you're building a house and some would is used to support the house and it's very maybe gnarly and but stick it strong and you hide it behind the walls and you have been near would which is very thin and grab for a beautiful and you put that towards the front and you know the metaphor goes on you know with the idea human beings are the same way and that you wouldn't expect a beautiful. Veneer Wall to be a supporting column of would within the House in the same way to the metaphor goes when you're when you're hiring people and when you're actually trying to build a culture that you hire and you don't thank will this person needs to conform into this particular role that I'm trying to fulfill but you actually look at them and say, well, the role trying to fill is one part of the overall capabilities at this person. On Larry. And if you're. Smart about it, I think what you do you use the Job Description at you're putting out in the world is a way to attract talent. But if you do it correctly, the job itself is just one part of the overall capability of the person. You can actually almost van Diagram Denise between the business and within Russell needs are the personnel are, and if you can kind of do that crossover where they intersect, you can actually unlock two to three x the capabilities of that person. So probably long winded answer to your question, but does two books were interesting of a huge influence to me?

In my small town like we build a stage out in the park, and then like have like period garb, and we'd get government grants, because we be talking about like the local Lore, and we'd like March onstage. Be like well. Let me tell you about the bluebell murder that happened on that mine over there. Them murder yeah the Bluebell murder well. We've never heard of that. I know and it'll be like totally a situation when like walkout stage than put on a hat and then come back as the mayor and stuff, but that was. My first job was your first job was putting on. Heritage plays about the Blue Bell Murder, etc, yeah. The Guy, who put that on is a bit of A. He's a bit of a rep scaling, but he is a great guy that really helps like a lot of young kids get into their first world of theater. My boss after that. When I was traveling, Australia was like a restaurant owner. He was awful. He was so savage to me constantly. Did you do like the whole? The whole East Coast tour? That would have been cool. That would have been cool. I went to Sydney for a bit of the two thousand Olympics and I spent most of my time in Noosa heads Queensland I went there and. Worked in restaurants went to the beach drink way too much and came back a virgin. A? But I did go to the Great Barrier Reef Scuba through that I'm very happy. 'cause now all of its gone. To did you backpack now I was more so just like living with my friends family. It was less adventurous as I wanted to be. In hindsight, I was like man I was so much more but. It. Takes time for you to have the confidence to just like. Of Li-. Yeah Sophomore Year of College. I took the semester off in a backpack around Australia which. Sounds the condensation of that phrase backpacked around? Australia is sort of I. Don't know it felt frustratingly easy. Like I had like a key bus tour, we went from like hostile to hostel. The hostel like I did one of those things where you pay I. Don't know two hundred bucks and somebody just does all the planning and all the work for you and you just have to make sure that you don't have athletes, but. That's good, though that's great, starter voyage for. You know young adult. Friend we. Minted adult. I don't think I had any action either during that time, but. I think that was partly due. Maybe to my anger. I've tended to put people off a bit. I think. You too controversial a now now. You GotTa be a Nice Little Mild Duckling. Yeah. You're right. Feathers it's true. Do you feel that. I feel that a bit. I also feel the desire to be. I've never come into comedy being like I WanNa be the controversial one that makes everyone go like Whoa. That's never been Michael so if the world is going like hey, that's too far. I'm like okay with it. I want to be able to. Allow people to? Think sometimes or I WANNA. Maybe dance around the edge occasionally. I don't WanNa. Feel like the whole world is like one big HR. Department can't relate. Not Look caring's nine like that and you're like fuck sake like what's the point. That sucks. There's some kind of balance in there somewhere, but the repercussions for failure to high yeah I know okay, what's the best? Or worst advice you've been given comma. Okay good advice I can't qualify. Any of the following is best or worst because. It requires memory recall from someone who has the my individual. I can't access those data files so well but I can go. I can give good or bad us. We'll let me tell you. Maybe it'll. Maybe it'll spur something in you. Some of the best advice I was given was when Keenan Wayne's told me that there's no vanity in comedy and I think some of the worst which ended up. Being the best was when an older actor told me if you can do anything else, do it. Both of those kinds of ideas were monumental to me. Still Nothing. No I've got one. The this follows follows under the good advice. Okay, there's a couple of goodies. One was I. Guess All professional advice that pertains to like Hollywood manager always has to repeat this to me to run my own race because I have victim constantly. To like Oh so and so's doing that. I just constantly comparing myself to everybody. How can we will? That aren't even in the same category comparing myself to? Just the everything. And the idea of running around races like pretty good notion because that's true. And you can't really truly control everything. Yeah I would liken it less to running your own race more so. You're. You're like an adventure tourism person that's gone overboard on Whitewater rafting expedition, and you just careening down this rapid, and you're essentially trying to swim and avoid boulders, and maybe maybe if you're lucky like Oh, there's an off shoot over with. The water gets a little easier, but then they'll probably a waterfall, and it's like you going down like this endless mountain water landscape. I think something that you and I have in common and forgive me if you don't believe us, but we don't but convince me. Right. You and I have been the straight people and like that I. Refer to as bounce card and on my show oftentimes other people get delicious yeah zest. Yes yeah, Trim versus goodies, and we sort of the emotional stabilisers. That, we are the reflection of the audience. The audience looks to a straight man for how they're supposed to feel emotionally towards the scenario. In Times I've definitely felt like fuck of the people get to have fun, and then in our industry to which ridiculously credits itself with glory that feels. Frivolous and unjust, but the idea of like hey, hey, man! So like nobody's. Talking about the Pasta I. Know You guys are into the sauce, but come on. You it, Tony Right. Yeah. I don't know. Do you feel that way? I don't mean to presume that you do get those feelings for sure especially at maybe like a table rate when it hasn't really allowed itself to get on his feet, and it's just like our man all the fun words are forever. Somebody else I just have to be like guys. Wait look at the problem. It's annoying. But I do feel like there's always opportunity for the quote, unquote, straight man or woman to inject any type of space. Sometimes it's even funnier to have. The terrible thing happened to the most put together character right? Yeah, the street thing is kind of it's interesting. I mean that really only started happening at the start of Silicon Valley for me. I was always doing characters I was the Weirdo. Like deal? and. I like both I.

"Baseball season with all its ups and downs in its myriad characters, is often a great way to look at not just the world baseball in particular moment of time, but at the country at large such is the case the new book by our next guest? The book is titled The Call Shot Babe Ruth. The Chicago cubs in the unforgettable Major League baseball season of nineteen, thirty two, and has promised the author Thomas Wolfe Not that Thomas Wolf joins us now Tom Thank you for us. Thank you Jeremy I'm delighted to be here. It's quite a heavy literary burden to be put upon by your parents. When when they give you that name, you already have that surname. You had no choice except to become a writer I suppose. I guess that's true and I think it came from. My mother actually lived in Black Mountain. North Carolina. During world, War Two and interview. Julia, will who was Thomas? Wolfe Mother so I kind of think she had the name Thomas will in her mind at that point well I promise not to make any any bad jokes about going home again as as we talked about the nineteen thirty two baseball season. There is. There is so much going on as we said in baseball every year, but that year there's so much going on of course in the country, can you? Can you set the stage for us? Nineteen, thirty two in America. Sure the the president has been. Kind, of an odd way of reminding of the past, and are certain correlations between twenty twenty. And Nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty two. Is Notable because it was in the midst of the Great Depression prohibition was ending and had been a failed experiment. there were demonstrations in the streets. The Nation's capital World War veterans were demonstrating in the hope that they could get paid their world. One bonuses and there was certainly. economics depression throughout the country homeless homeless people. And The whole country really was. Experiencing a year of social unrest, fear suffering uncertainty, and there was a presidential election year, so politics was part of the story in nineteen, thirty, two, as well secret Thomas Wolf, his new book to Call Shot Babe Ruth the Chicago cubs in unforgettable Major League baseball season of nineteen, thirty two and I would venture to say correct me if I'm wrong. Tom But this this genre taking one season really dissecting it was was pioneered by the late great David Halberstam and now we've seen we we've seen. The the methodology applied to a number of different seasons. why why for you of all? Major League baseball goes back to eighteen, sixty, nine or eighteen, seventy six. You want to count it right? Why Nineteen thirty two? Yeah, that's a great question. and you're right about that. HALBERSTAM's book summer of forty, nine house that kind of launch there's rendre, and there are a whole bunch of really good books that have been written about single seasons. For for me, nineteen.

And so often it just seems very self indulgent. I feel like I'm doing them a favor straining to politely laugh with you guys I gotta say the laughter was Real. Just when I'm starting to get jaded about Improv. Pulled me back from the brink. That's great that makes us very happy. You kinda get where I'm coming from though right you know so often. It seems like every performance is just trying to shoehorn their own thing into that scene. It's very rare that you get to guys like you who actually are in sync and reading each other and genuinely playing off of each other. I mean isn't that what Improv is supposed to be sure? I think there's I think there's plenty of Improv groups and shows that that elevated to a standard that you that you so desperately seek I think what's interesting about the EPA Improv. The mechanic of the community is that there is very little delineation maybe other than like the night that a particular show is on between an incredible. Group.

"Screw this guy. He's lame so like the biggest influences. Were people that I could never be like and like realizing that a lot of the comedians that I grew up on when I was a little kid like Adam Sandler Jim Carrey and Eddie Murphy. All of their comedy came from some true place and also some great vulnerability. Even Adam Sandler like Billy Madison. Whatever it was characters trying really hard in being desperate and realizing that that's who I am as person so maybe leaning into that a little bit more but it took a long time. It took like a year for me to even get like a real laugh onstage. Those are old comedians for you to use his models. Like you're you're very young for those guys. Like Adam Sandler is a lot younger than even the other. Two that you're mentioning. I know that in this community norm. Macdonald is super respected. Like you must have. You must have liked how uncomfortable his style was. Oh yeah no and there is a time period where I would sort of. I remember talking like norm MacDonald word. Ed I'd always go the you know just like trying to find my voice. He's one of those guys who bridges the alternative and club thing really well to where he's like on some other some other atmosphere but yeah I I. I don't know those Jim. Carrey Eddie Murphy. I guess they're kind of all but there's something about that era of comedy that I like and if you think about it compared to now it's made me like almost rude the way that they all were comedians. Because they were so just spotlight hogs like they were the only funny thing and a lot of their movies especially Jim Carey Maybe not Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler but Yeah I don't know I just it's a IT'S A. It's been a strange trip as far as influences go. I didn't realize that you were talking about those guys in the movies. I thought that perhaps you were talking about their standups. Which has me Viewing you as a six year old. All of a sudden you know throwing in whatever. Deliri- is Sore Jim Carey at the at the beginning before he was before he became a movie. Guy He was exceptional at stand up comedy. Yeah no but my brother was a little bit older you know. He was five years older. So he was watching delirious exclusively. My brother in delirious doesn't really hasn't aged well at all but there is a joke in delirious that is to this day one of the best jokes evidence about Eddie Murphy waiting for the ice cream man as a kid and that was the first. I didn't really like stand up as a kid you know and then I saw that ice cream man joke. That was the first time I ever laughed at stand up like fell on the ground laughing and like couldn't catch my breath and then you know I was the Adam Sandler things I the seas. I would listen to those albums as a kid Jim Carey. I don't know if I ever even saw him. Do stand up until Youtube came around but I just mainly mean like I guess thinking about him in his movies. I was like Stanley. Kisses from the mask is like my favorite character that he does it because he is so desperate. Just like desperate. I said that seven hundred times talking to you. Why why do you like it because you just connect with it? Because you've been there you've spent the last ten years there. Yeah I think that I I just appreciate when people are openly affected and struggling in art. I really like listening to. I think it's why I connect with IMO musical ad. I know there's something about characters who just need to connects and there's no real nihilism. It's just people who who want religion or who wants something you know. I'm not religious at all of it. I'd Rather Watch a movie about somebody who's desperate to find religion than someone who is positive that it doesn't exist. Where in clubs? Or what details do you remember? Sort of your brand of comedy. You're sitting there and you got to be a little off kilter. You gotta like the dark stuff but you go into a place and there. Aren't that many people there and they simply don't get it don't like it and it's not for them like you have to have some examples of that. I am surprised to hear you say that Alabama was a place where you connected but it makes sense when you're talking about the death of parents being connection point whereas some of the places that you remember playing where you're like whoa that didn't work at all. I mean in La. Most of the time when I tour it's always been good people some nights there's off nights here and there but as far as cities go. I always feel like do better in middle America places like New York in as always. It's good but you know I feel like people have a little bit harder time. Laugh out here. They're exposed to so much more. Maybe I always. I always stayed that it when I perform in New York. That it doesn't feel like anybody's parents are dead in New York but But they're always good you know it's like the worst sets I've ever had have been in L. A. New York like just because I'm performing much more in those two places. I'm just I can just see where your comedy on. Some nights might not land and it has nothing to do with whether it's funny or not. It has everything to do with the crowd and the crowd not being here for a weird different eccentric dark just wanting something headed to the club because they just want to laugh and maybe not thinking that it's funny because of how eccentric it is. I mean there has been definitely has been nights where I've told the kidnapping story and no one has left and then it just feels like I told a story about getting kidnapped. Three year old and people are like. Why did you tell me that Australia? I performed in Australia for three weeks almost every night at the Melbourne comedy festival and pretty much bombed exclusively And they hated like they hated all the Shit I was doing and I felt I mean. That was a bad that was bad like people would come up to me afterwards and go like was that old real and I'd go Israel and they go all night. Thought you'd do a character whitmer. How much pain have you had in your life that it takes you a minute to remember? Yeah I bombed for three straight weeks in Australia and you can't come up with that story immediately like that. Sounds horrible. Three three weeks of bombing in a foreign country while telling intimate stories and everybody confused as to what the hell you're doing sounds unspeakably painful. Yea Dude I don't know why it took me under remember that I think because I'm feeling pretty good right now so I forgot about that but that is one of my fate like Australia. Just did not get me at all like at the end of my set they you know. I was part of this thing and it was my own fault. I should have read it a little better. Figured it out because I was part of something called American headliners where they build new with two other comedians. Who were really silly. And kind of over the top in both hilarious comedians and I would go in between them and do these like you know sometimes depressing stories in just eat it just bomb and so I started doing more silly stuff at the end of my sets where I would go out shit. I did all the wrong jokes. I was SUPPO- I did my set labelled American settlers supposed to be doing my set labelled Australian set and I would read off really stupid basic like why do you call a a flashlight of a torch and stuff like that about like? American in Australia for the first thing and then people would laugh at that they would laugh at how absurd stupid it was and so I started closing my set that way and then I got a review in the Guardian or some Australian magazine or newspaper. That said Whitmer. Thomas told dark stories with gene-o laughs or something and then in typical American fashion forgot his correct set at the end. They didn't understand that. That will not get me on and it was like hard hard and so you leave their thinking. What right because this is not that long ago you leave their thinking? I learned something there or I Never WanNa do that again or did. Learn something big time there. Which is you gotta read the room like. That wasn't my show that I was sharing that show to other comedians. And I wanted to go out and be the star and do this like one man show kind of thing you know this look at any moment instead of sharing it like I could have gone out and done bits and like you know done more of a of a triple bill kinda show. Which is what I should have done. But instead week after week. I wanted to be like whitmer. Thomas impresses us with his phone rebel. Polaris storytelling. But that wasn't that room so that was my own fault like that was my biggest lesson in like looking back from Australia. I learned so much like if the if the vibe is a fun silly vibe. Don't go try to change it to be like the me show like if I would have done a bunch of silly jokes and then pepper in the kidnapping story or the MOM is dead story. It would've gone great but instead I wanted it to be kidnapped story. I than that you know you say you're feeling pretty good right now and I know money doesn't buy happiness but has success helped in sort of lifting some of the fog of depression because that is something that a lot of people arrive you know. Tyson fury for example heavyweight champion of the boxing world. He arrives at the mountain. Top and just descends right into cocaine and empty and gaining weight because the top didn't feel the way that he thought the top was going to feel and mental illness and depression are difficult things to combat no matter how much success you're having a no it doesn't fix depression in it's hard you know like. I've gone struggled bouts of depression since I made this special being able to pay my rent is cool. That's new Um but the truth is the thing about doing. This show over the last few years is that it's connected me with my mom in La. That I didn't get to. I never got to experience her really as an adult doing this show. I felt like this great connection there and now that I'm not doing it anymore. It's gone and I don't feel like I'm no longer on stage singing about her to with a image of her singing behind me like the same you know so dealing with that and you know there's always gonna be depression and stuff but as far as the show goes. I made it and it's out and people can watch it in people also can learn about my mom and that has helped that aspect of it. But you know with now. I having a little bit of success in. It's not like I've I've been recognized on the street one time and you know that's that's the extent of it. People online have been really cool. But it's not like people are reviewing me in the New Yorker like you know how they do with like Pete Davidson or something like that and like your views. Been Nice to talk to me. But it's it's I'm still not a famous comedian by any means You know there's always going to be a struggle and I'm not at the top of the mountain and there's always gonna be things that send me back into like a massive funk or depression and it has helped in the way that right now. I don't have to worry so much about pink rent. But also I don't have jobs lined up some. Maybe it will. Soon I would think did opportunities would present themselves now. No I hope so. I mean I'm trying really hard to to have things prepared to give to people. That's the lucky thing about just kind of floundering for the last however long years and years is I've had so many projects that I've written and tried to pitch or something that now people have become a little bit more in so hopefully I'll be able to make a TV show or make a movie or something like that. Because I'm ready to and I was thinking like being having a bunch of money like it's You know now that I'm thirty one now so I'm responsible and the first thing I did when I got paid with my money from. Hbo Is Is I bought a Subaru outback? Because my car was broken and then as well what else can you? I need to fix some things up around the house and I'll man getting a big paycheck when you're in your thirties is like not as exciting as it would have been when. I was twenty nine. That's the time to be rich. Is Timothy Shallow main like making out of some model on a boat? That's what you're supposed to get to be rich. You know but instead I'm like what do I need? I could use a rug. Are you when you're done with the show? I'm wondering the level of drain is it because of performing and adrenaline and fear and all of that stuff or is it because you're visiting an emotional space again and again and again that hurts and the performing of it. You're feeling as you do it. I don't know that you parse these things but when you're done with the show what is that. What what are you feeling in the Green Room? Yeah emotional it's it's weird. It's like A. I feel a little bit numb. Doubt honestly singing that. He's hot song as ridiculous as it is with my mom on the screen and sometimes if I was in California my brother would come play with me so I would be with him because my brother lives out here. He lives on his school bus in carpentry. So it just kind of zone out but then you know the more that I would do it the more than I did the show. The more people started to show up. Sometimes I would sell out venue in before I could even make it to the green when people would come up to me..

"thomas" Discussed on Le Batard and Friends - South Beach Sessions

"My mom's band's recordings all back to nineteen seventy five so I went and got this digitized. They were thought to have been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina the guy at the digitisation places like. Oh these two inch tape. It's impossible to destroy these and so I'm remixing all her music now and hopefully we'll put it out in some sort of some capacity you can get by the way I should tell the audience. The songs from the Golden One. The album on apple music and spotify. You should check out on. Hbo Go the Golden One. Whitmer Thomas the Golden One So what is happened here in terms of changing the desperation because now all of a sudden this hit. Hbo which does almost only good work has has legitimized you. What ends up happening with other COMEDIANS. Because it's a small circle and I'm sure other stand ups have noticed the bravery and what it is that you did in the vulnerability like who have you heard from where you're like Holy Shit. I can't believe that I reached here. This person in a way that is artistic that sort of get exactly what it is. I was trying to do well. I like blow. You Know He. He produced it so like having him involved in his his producing partner. Chris store like Dave exclusively made really good stuff so that was the first thing and then since it came out people like gum. Amy Schumer has said some Nice stuff a couple of times and Judd Apple Town. Sia Singer which is really cool but mostly. It's been my peers. I think you know as Comedians. We kind of do these. Little showcase shows together like do ten minutes sets around town and run into each other. Hang out with each other but the nicest texts and messages always been just from people that I started with. I see all the time you know. Those those who've been the coolest just like my close friends who you know normally when People Watch me at ten minutes set around town. I'm not doing some light one man show about my death of my mom. I'm doing like some stupid jokes. Some silly joke so I was in a way a little bit embarrassed to be seen in vulnerable way on stage for my special and so I was kind of nervous. What might peers would think I was thinking like They'll think like this is lame. It's not even funny or whatever it is but It's been nice to hear that that my my friends who who I do comedy with regularly have liked it. You know at least most of them some of them. What are the complements that are most meaningful specifically? I'm not talking about from the people I'm talking about the words that are said that you were like wow. That's really cool. Oh yeah anytime. Somebody reaches out in says like we connected with this story like because of my parents own addiction or death Those are always the most meaningful compliments like when people watched it not knowing what it was too. They're just like watching shit on. Hbo Especially now. Because everybody's on lockdown just kind of scrolling clicking on watching it and they said I didn't know what this was but then I watched all of it and it resonated with me because I lost my mom year ago or whatever it is I feel like those are the best compliments and those are always the people who are laughing the hardest in the crowd you know it was really funny and in Alabama people. Hard living down where I'm from. You know eat will live pretty hard pretty fast. And I've done this show all over the place and the song that I sing called. Party to death about my mom drinking yourself to that never killed harder than it did. In Alabama people were laughing like crazy at that song in singing it and I at the end of the show while they were moving camera. Gear Out They had everybody stand their seats so that they weren't trip enough records and I was just talking to them and I was like guys why I've never heard people laugh the way that. Y'All did at party to death like why was that so funny usually people. That's like a very alienating song for a lot of people and they don't know if it's okay to laugh and I was like clap your hands if you have a parent and I swear to you. Ninety percent of the audience clapped about Alabama but it was very Cathartic. It was like cool. Like everybody here has going through this so when some kid from a small town or some person from a small town. Dm's me on instagram or twitter and says something lake You know they connected. It makes me think of how I was when I was younger if I would have seen something. They dealt with alcoholism loss. How I I really had such a thirst for that kind of thing and so. I hope that I liked provided something. That people like me could connect with you know. When did you realize that your pain could be funny like how? How soon because you after you have to have a macab sense of humor? My guess is that all along the path For a long time. Now you've had to laugh to keep from crying definitely. Yeah it was never. My therapist would say that. That's a big problem but because it deflects because it doesn't because it doesn't actually examine the pain you're going through because you're just camouflaging it. Yeah totally and even as a kid it would be you know. My mom is felt like my mom and my dad's problems a lot bigger than anything that I could ever experience so no matter what was really going through. I didn't really have much of an opportunity to be a brat as a child or to to kind of complain so all. I really do just goof off and I was lucky because when I was a kid all this stuff that was popular like Jackass on. Mtv bans like Grenada to everything was like so extremely annoying. You know so. That was all the comedy that I loved. These people going like a hundred and ten percent. And so. That's what I was trying to do. Just deflect deflect deflect kind of like an addict would you know with drugs or something but with my own comedy you know it like when my mom died and it was nineteen or twenty inch. She wrote a letter saying she gave me some money team. He Five Thousand Bucks. She was like. Don't spend it all on rent so I was trying to think of what to do with that money in so I. I rented out a theater. I've been on rent but I rented out a theater which I felt like she would be cool to try to figure out how to do comedy and to to play videos that me and my friend. My co-director Klay Tatum. Had been making and so we would play videos in invite comedians up and I wasn't thinking myself as a stand up comedian at all and every time I would try just bomb bomb bomb but then I was telling story just on stage in between about being kidnapped when I was three and just because I thought it was an interesting story not really expecting a laugh just like oh this is something they might think is interesting and then at the end of it. I said I thought I was pretty cool. Maybe he was like my first. Big Fan people laughed at that and that was the first time where I was like. Oh maybe I could kind of explore the darker parts of my life because I I have this kind of Deflecting way of talking about them. So would you go back and give yourself the advice of spending the money that way even having seen how it turned out because that seems like of all the ways to spend that money that's artistically spiritual and connected but it's also an unusual choice? You made their well. She wrote not to spend it on rent so I kept my job. I was delivering groceries. And I didn't want to let her down. You know so I just well. She also said in that letter like believe in angels and I'm watching so it was really a strange time because everything I just felt like she was kind of monitoring me and I didn't know what else to spend the money on. I could have you know I could have bought a guitar or something that I just was trying to think of a way to to do something where I could be control. You know like it would be my thing you know. So that's why it's been on them. I don't know I guess it is Kinda Weird. Even Clay Mike. My friend and collaborator was like talking about it recently. Like yeah I remember. You just texted me a picture of a theater in relate. I rented this theater every week. We have this theater every week. We can do whatever we want inside of it and he was like that was crazy crazy but we all did stuff in it so it worked out and so as you're bombing and bombing bombing are you punishing yourself. Are You thinking to yourself? No failing and failing is learning. Or what is it that you're doing as you're bombing? I really loved comedy. It was like something I really wanted to do. I was like obsessed with stand up comedy. I wanted so badly to figure out how to be good at it and I could be conversationally funny like if I was talking to a friend something but when I was onstage I couldn't figure out how to get a laugh and then when I told that joke about being kidnapped for that story I realized that I was just having a conversation and so I was obsessed with it was like in. This is what I tell people. If they're thinking about doing comedy I say him. If you go on stage in you bomb your first time and you still WanNa do it afterwards after that massive defeat then then you should probably consider doing it. It might be something that you're kind of meant to be trying to. You know I wasn't worried about it. It was a nice time and back. Then everything was funny to me like every comedian I saw was the funniest comedian in the world. Anytime that we'd go to a comedy show or there was fifteen people in the crowd. I thought everybody on stage was famous. It was the best time ever and in a couple of years into that and doing comedy. I've met Todd glass is a great comedian and he was doing a recording a podcast with norm MacDonald. So I met norm MacDonald to and Todd said Oh this is whitmer Thomas. He's a young comedian. He's he's pretty funny and norm said. Oh how long you've been doing it and as I don't know two or three years norm said man this is this is the best time of your whole life like it's never going to get better than this like two or three years in everything is great. So don't forget and I remember thinking right and the sucks but looking back. That was the best. It was like everything was ahead of me. It was really exciting. Who are your influences? Because I don't know that I've seen someone exactly like you. And it sounds from the way that you're telling the story like you might have been trying to be a different kind of comedian learning from other stealing from others. And you didn't find it until you realize. Oh No it's my stories. It's the way that I'm going to do this. This isn't about my influences. I know you've got to sculpt it and they're all sorts of notes that have to get hit in a year two years of sculpting to get the hour of work. But who were your influences and do you actually follow them now or are you just doing it? Your way exclusively. Yeah my biggest influences were like Zach Galifianakis Pignataro and people like that. I really wanted to be like a cool kind of quiet like absurd comedian but I couldn't lie on stage. I that was like a thing is like if people saw me tell something. That definitely wasn't the truth and that was the joke of it. People just never wanted to laugh at it so like I couldn't lie so that that was my whole journey was like realizing that they had to be honest in order for Shit to work out in order to get a laugh like and I had to go all the way like if I felt like if I if I was if my whole shtick was that a seemed like I didn't care than people would go..

"Some new poll. Whatever the the the fan and I was just like like I feel like he don't get enough credit for a lot of this stuff. You know what I'm saying. A lot of moves and stuff. You know what I'm saying. Drafting Stoudamire camp Boys OVER THERE. We know even the guys that he you know that you gave. Did you sign to deals from from Indiana to the Knicks? All of the moves. I feel like what made you be able to see and ignore that and say I don't care what they saying was being said about him. Uc what you saw. You did what you did. I always approached the traff asking this question. Can this person play in a championship game and win? And what is his his mental makeup in every trade that I made. It's like okay. Not Can he play in the NBA? Not How many points can this guy perform under pressure? If we in a pressure situation can follow game plan can execute and can we win a championship with them? And if you look at all the players that I've drafted and some of the players that I've traded for they even hall of fame right now. They've been named NBA. All Stars and have won championships or been six men of the year so on teen that that we had in New York. We had six people off the team when NBA Championships. Maliki was on that team went. Nba Championship David Lee One. Nba Championship. Channing Frye one. Nba Championship Edie Carey was on NBA championship team. Jamal was you know sixth man of the year forever. The trophy will probably be named after six. Guard Wilson. As you said. It's still playing everyone that that we had at tied inge as record in play also points in the order as the fourth string guy and and we had all this talent in everybody was was so young and maturing and growing now you know the narrative in New York and I don't know how this got started where they said. Well you treated all the draft picks. I never treat any rapid as a matter of fact one year I had three first round picks if you go back and you look at what I actually did or we forget the name. Trevor Reason I in terms of And I'm sure there's somebody else that I MISS. You know as a champion so if there's somebody else that was on that team. I Miss I apologize. But there's only the trade that that I still think today is so misunderstood. People you know have have wrote so fictitious fictitiously. Just bad about was the eddy curry trait. I mean the Eddy. Curry A to me was eddy. Curry and Wilson Chandler for tyrus Thomas and tyrus Thomas at that time was I think he was the second pick in the draft. And I let that tyrus and no offense tyrus but I just said I I got David Lee and I got channing. Frye so I'm good. I'm good at the power forward spot. I don't need another power forward in the three power forwards. At that time they were coming out was aldridge. Tyrus Thomas and joking Noah when I looked at channing in David I said Okay. These two guys are capable in my opinion and this was my criteria my criteria is. Can you win a championship? Not Can you plan the NBA and score some points and make some money? Can You win the championship? I looked at David Lee. And I looked at channing. Frye and I say these two guys planned championship teams and win. So I'm good within right and I think when you look back in history has proven US correct that Wilson Chandler Eddy Curry for tyrus. Thomas was a damn good trade. Tom Remember this. I first PRESEASON GAME. It was a first or second. Preseason Game Coaching the Indiana Pacers who we had a whip in Indiana and if very win fire me I. He'll say today we do. I would have won a championship with that team. Great that's one of my favorite teams too. But we played at Indiana state and my first Sakti was dunk on. Somebody was against Jermaine O'Neal in the state and I don't don't like bodies or by title dealt with and I yield.

"She's been hitting the drink twice as hard now we're going to finish finish up and talk about the precipitous. Drop off the brink that Thomas Cook went through and it was. This was something that happened so so suddenly that it took a lot of people by complete surprise even even people who had said Yeah. I knew that they weren't doing well. Financially were shocked at how fast this unravel rabble. Will you never think that. Somebody's just gonNA close overnight when they've got tons of people whole around the globe so how he got there in two thousand seven like we said before the break lake they had more brick and mortar locations than any other travel retailer right but the travel industry as a whole was shifting online online so quickly that that was not an asset it was actually a liability. Yes because I was all that overhead so much overhead unlike an airplane with very little overhead smashes. It's all all underfoot in two thousand eleven. The company sought out one hundred and twenty five million dollars dollars or pounds. I believe dollars Zia. Every report I saw was posted in a news journal so I just assumed that that means we're talking dollars hundred twenty five million whether it's dollars or pounds is a lot of money whole Lotta money. And they did this to tide over their cash shortage. Yes so this was like A. They're in a real serious cash crunch that they just didn't have the money to keep operations two billion dollars in debt. Yeah so this. This was essentially the keep the lights on and be able to pay their their staff. Keep in mind their staff. It's not just travel agents. We're talking about flight crews. We're talking about you know paying for the fuel for your aircraft. There's tons of things that are part of this Gargantuan business at this point and it's it's mind in boggling it. The next year the company announced it was going to restructure and in the process close two hundred of its stores and in two thousand thirteen. The company announced is that it was going to streamline by merging their airlines in Belgium Scandinavia the United Kingdom and Germany into a single division and in two thousand fifteen they a announced a strategic partnership with Chinese Investment Group called Foshan international which looked like it might have been a saving grace book like it. Looks like it wasn't the first half of two thousand eighteen. The company was seeing a huge drop off in customers. Yes and the reasons for this are are multiple like there's no one caused we can point to and say this is why people travelled less. They're actually quite a few view. Different reasons that contributed in some way shape or form for example. You probably heard if you if you're not in the UK you've definitely heard heard about if you're in the UK you're living it which `sorry the brexit process right so brexit out. Some people have argued has discouraged a a lot of travel so a lot of people not knowing what was going to be in store for them you know financially or legally just to move in and amount of countries in the EU for example they held off on holiday plans so that was one argument. Another was that in two thousand eighteen gene the UK had an unusually warm winter and in the UK. Winter is when a lot of Brits fly away to get someplace that ain't so gosh dern Dang cold and damp and grey. I one of the coldest winters I ever spent was a June in the UK. Jin Yeah. That's how cold it can get there. Wow no I was in Scotland the northern regions of Scotland and it got chilly at night. No but but yeah I. It's it's I mean I I always think about when I go to Orlando like if I go to Orlando in the summer Summer Months I see one type of Tourists all over the place but if I go in the winter months it's almost All Brits Yeah and then there are also reports of management being unconservative with their pay. Yeah no there were a lot of stories about the the top levels of management at Thomas Cook we're having some of the most Exorbitant like executive salaries and benefits. So there was a lot of stories is about the mismanagement staying that people were were overpaid for their positions. At least that was the perception. I'm not sure if that was the reality. And these these factors were compounded by the fact that by May Have Twenty nineteen hoteling gas costs. were up and that was making travel even more expensive which was cutting into the profit margin for these packages they were offering because they couldn't have the packages go up too much or people wouldn't buy them but they couldn't wouldn't have it hold at the lower levels because then they would be losing money on the deal. He's acts put them in a rough place yet. July Twenty Nineteen Thomas is cook. Group received an initial offer from sin to be purchased yet again again so the that was something that the company was considering by August. Two Thousand Nineteen. They entered into a rescue package. which would give Tourism Control of the Thomas Cook Group tours tours and vacations. That would give Thomas Cook Airlines to creditors and bondholders and this package was nine hundred million pounds. So this little like this might be able to keep the company going for that just under a billion pounds amount. But it wasn't no because another punch was right around the corner. Yeah just a month later. Creditors are demanding an additional two hundred million pounds in funding. They were worried that two thousand nineteen The winter of two thousand nine hundred two thousand twenty was going to be a repeat of two thousand eighteen which we live in the south. And it's been a very hot September October ninety seven degrees degrees and October fourth. When we record this so not completely unfounded but that meant that the additional two two hundred million was beyond what I was willing to to negotiate and the deal essentially fell through and it by falling through the company crumbled? Yes they went into immediately predation. This one hundred and seventy eight year old company closed its doors overnight and the big part of the problem that you've probably heard about if you've been paying attention to the news regarding Thomas. Cook is that more than half a million people were. We're on a Thomas Cook vacation while this happened Collie and you're talking about immediately ceasing operations. Which means that airline airline doesn't exist anymore which meant thousands of people no longer had a way home? You had folks who are trapped all over the place and this is when in the UK government had to look into how to fix this for at least the UK citizens. Now keep in mind. There was like six hundred thousand. People were on vacation nation only ballot. I say only still huge number of people about one hundred sixty thousand of those were British citizens and everybody else's candidacy plum out of luck You at least for this particular solution and that solution was that the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority would start a repatriation peacetime program. Called operation. Matterhorn man. I guess it takes some of the sting out that you're gonna a half to depend upon your home country's government to get you back home if you're told that it's part of Operation Matterhorn. Eating a fun Disney ride. I mean at least it gives gives it something like romantic as opposed to get me the hell home does give you something pleasant sounding. Tell your grandchildren. Yeah and It was funny because I was actually reading news articles written about this whole experience and for some people it was very it was. It was frustrating trading stressful It was confusing and perplexing but for some people they got an unexpected a crazy upgrade to their experience because the CIA was chartering flights from pretty much any available airline that had aircraft craft and some of them were luxury airlines. Joe Order flights hard nicer and the these were. I mean these were like commercial jets these ed but in some cases they were commercial jets. They're meant for luxury flights. Where you might end up in a luxury suite type situation that normally would cost you? Thousands sounds and thousands of dollars but because it was the government that was kinda coming in and swooping it up. You didn't have any extra cost. It was them trying to get you home. I I hope that the people who found themselves in that situation would be able to enjoy the unexpected benefit through all the stress well and a lot of them also expressed a deep sense of empathy for the crew and the staff of Thomas. Cook there the over and over. I read reports about how they wanted to make it clear that they were not blaming. Any of the people who worked there for what was happening wasn't their fault right but that it was and there were also reports that talked about how the flight crews Thomas Cook flight crews new.

"How do you eat a whole car? Joe Joe Thomas, once why don't you tell Joe Thomas, how you eat a kick you eat a kit, Kat, well, actually, I don't like kit cats, but when I do when I just bite into them. Are you an animal? Uncivil. Joe? Joe Thomas is done squeamish, you're making a whimper like a scared child because of your eating habits. What is Joe Joe you find it blasphemous that he doesn't break apart a kit Kat bar, correct? Yeah. That's why they make the ridge right down the middle. So you break them apart. And then you take nice bites whatever size one, he's probably the same guy that eats a whole string cheese. You know, three bites at a time. That makes no sense. You gotta pull them apart. No, no. I yeah. I do it string cheese like that. Okay. I don't think anybody needs it that way. Fight into string cheese carry. I'm actually with them on this. Bite into it. The strange gets jail time.

Next half gone. I'm with you on that. Yes. How else can we offend Joe Thomas as every sensibility? Here we have some divisions on whether or not the red dorito is better than the cool ranch. Doritos you can only pick one for the hall of fame. Joe Thomas is picking what? Nacho cheese is clearly better. Whoa. You're not a hall of Famer gutter. Wow. Guber bad what back off everybody just back off?.
