If I want a cake, do I take a number and wait at the Geiger counter?

That's not a cake, it's an incendiary device! Greetings UM and glenn!

Light the fuse and get away.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:38pm glenn:

tell your supreme court that the world ain't gonna end if the homos can tie the knot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 5:38pm Uncle Michael:

How's it going, home yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 5:39pm Uncle Michael:

Marriage should remain a sacred bond between one host and one chest-busting parasite.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:39pm Doug Schulkind:

Yes, Uncle Michael. Safe and sound. Thanks for asking.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:41pm Ellen Ripley:

You may have a point, U.M.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:42pm Doug Schulkind:

I think the Supreme Court is almost irrelevant at this point. It would be nice if it issued a sweeping ruling that making Constitutional any gender marriages, but that ain't gonna happen. In the same way that California's passing of Prop 8 actually did more for marriage equality than if it had failed, a negative Supreme Court ruling will only catapult the cause further ahead.

In my unhumble opinion.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Helooo and welcome, Ellen Ripley!
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:46pm Ellen Ripley:

We listen to g.t.d.s on The Nostromo 24 / 7 / 365. In space, everybody can hear you stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 5:47pm Uncle Michael:

Could you do something about Paul Reiser's hairpiece?
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Nostromo? Damn us!
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:50pm Ellen Ripley:

Paul Reiser? Isn't he dead?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 5:51pm Uncle Michael:

Just his follicles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 5:51pm Uncle Michael:

Which is fine...he just needs to let his pate flag fly.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:51pm ndbob:

evening Doug and everyone!
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:52pm Doug Schulkind:

@Uncle Michael
I believe that Paul Reiser's hairpiece should have the right to marry any wig, plug or combover it so chooses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 5:52pm Uncle Michael:

Hi Bob!
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 5:52pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi ndbob!

I just got done listening to the oral argument from the Prop 8 case.... very interesting

As Duke Ellington said, "music is my mistress."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:06pm Uncle Michael:

Could you hear Clarence Thomas snoring?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:06pm Parq:

The Geiger cake reminds me of the asteroid worm from Star Wars. Even more to the point, with two of them, it reminds me of the spoof of that scene found in Robot Chicken Star Wars.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Charlie Parker is next! (No, not THAT Charlie Parker.)

Hey there Holland and Parq(er)!
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:07pm ndbob:

lol Michael.... I certainly could hear Scalia being an ass
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:07pm Ellen Ripley:

So how are things with Amy Winehouse? I'm a little behind on the current events.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:08pm Uncle Michael:

She's doing about the same.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey Uncle Michael, we frown on using obscenity (Clarence Thomas) here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:09pm Parq:

Actually, she's also a little behind on current events. As distinct from Justice Scalia, who's a big behind on current events.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:11pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not up on my GTDCC regulations.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

You are quite correct. Scalia is a big behind.

'Ello folks
I can't listen but Ill stalk the board
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:14pm Uncle Michael:

I can listen to Lefty for as long as it takes.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:16pm ndbob:

my favorite Lefty song is his teener - "Heaven's Plan"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:17pm Uncle Michael:

Always Late..Saginaw...I can't pick one Lefty song.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Leaving so soon, Artie? We haven't even tossed the bouquet yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:20pm Uncle Michael:

I thought we were going to throw Lance Henriksen's head.

Yeah i really have remember to keep a pair of earbuds in my pocket damn my lack of hipster forethought

My love abides, but Texas Tyler sounded like he was on the way out. Just transliterating the lyrics into twittersquawk for the kiddies...
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:24pm Doug Schulkind:

We should all be so lucky as to have a pseudonym comprising the names of two Texas towns.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/26/13 6:27pm Stanley:

Aw this Pyramids is fab, Reminds me of what was played by our Caribbean neighbours in South London in the sixties when I was a kid. Happy memories.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:27pm Doug Schulkind:

You really should marry that literate so and so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/26/13 6:28pm joe:

I've come to point were I refuse to even have a "discussion" about gay marriage with people. I just don't even see why in this day and age a court is needed to make the decision. You are against someone being gay fine what ever but that still doesn't give the place to tell others what they can do
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:30pm glenn:

well, except for the fact she's still technically married to somebody else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/26/13 6:30pm Stanley:

@ joe - the article in The Onion this week follows your thinking on this....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:31pm Artie:

Love and the law, oil and water.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:32pm glenn:

speaking of books, are there any j.p. donleavy fans here?
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:32pm northguineahills:

Even my bros., who are hardcore republicans, are for gay marriage. However, they're also younger then me, and have gay friends. Now my uncles and aunts, that's a different story.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

If you all thought you were gonna get through this hour without hearing Francis Bebey's "Pygmy Divorce," you are sorely mistaken.

Anyone who disagrees with you should have to take out the trash and must drink milk directly from the carton.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:34pm ndbob:

I didn't think that for a second Doug:)

you forgot the rest of the line, drummer - "stick with me, baby, and you'll be farting through silk".

You've always got my back.

Some husband is on Elmore Nixon's enemies list.

Otis Nixon had one hell of jaw on him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/26/13 6:57pm Uncle Michael:

I read Otis Nixon and thought Otis Campbell, the most hilarious alcoholic in North Carolina.
Avatar Tue. 3/26/13 6:58pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!

Thanks for the matrimonial stink-eye, Doug. Fun stuff.

Well, that was over too quick. Thanks Doug and good night all from the dark side of the planet.
