Ja Rule is now out of prison. Is that internet newsworthy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/7/13 6:10pm Mike East:

oh no! I literally just removed the Harryhausen pics from my friendship society profile two days ago. I will have to put them back up in his honor.
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:13pm Cheri Pi:

Viva la Mickee Dees!!! And Ramsey of course!
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:14pm Danne D:

I have a sense that he might not have been quoting her directly in this call.
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:15pm Cheri Pi:

Voice of REASON!!!

Check out Joe vs. the deer

The McDonald Brothers sold the chain early on to Ray Kroc who built it into the business McDonald's is today.

I called 911 one time on the cops. They were trying to bust my door down and I called to report some people trying to break into my house. The dispatcher said that is cops trying to get in. It was 2-3 in the morning after a big party and I fell asleep with the stereo really loud and neighbors complained.
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:19pm Danne D:

The Cleveland 911 operators weren't exactly exemplars of compassion and professionalism
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:19pm Danne D:

@GMMM um, so did you let 'em in?
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:22pm Danne D:

Here's a story from Trenton. This guy held off an intruder in his building for like 30 minutes until the cops showed. Cops defending not making this a priority: www.nj.com...
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:24pm Cheri Pi:

the "Coup de Brah"
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:24pm Danne D:

I didn't really find that part funny where he said "the baby looks hispanic" - basically indicates what happened to her :(
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:25pm Oy Vey:

Joe vs. the deer
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:25pm spodiodi:

Sounds like a lot of laughs just because somebody speaks differently. That said, love the show.
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:26pm Danne D:

A sober take on Charles Ramsey: meme: news.yahoo.com...
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:27pm spodiodi:

Also, have called 911... typical behavior -- same with regular dispatch/non-emergency.
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:28pm fred:

There's also footage of Mr. Ramsey with even more zingers...one of 'em is this: "Something is definitely wrong when a white woman runs into the arms of a black man"
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:28pm Oy Vey:

Just called 911 about Carl missing
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:30pm spodiodi:

That's the only zinger. The rest is a typical american man. (Tee hee! He sounds uneducated! lol)
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:30pm spodiodi:

Caller makes a good point -- more empathy.
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:32pm Danne D:

You are correct, Chris.

It's an homage to Terre T
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:33pm Madi:

Blythe = 100% right.
Your name is OK too.
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:34pm fred:

yeah, well he repeats it a few times.... spodi, Ever think that the way he speaks is refreshing since we get all this overly educated nonsensespeak all the time form media talking heads? The guy is honest and straight forward. You should try it.
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:37pm Oy Vey:

God bless giant testicles
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/7/13 6:38pm Mike East:

someone get that guy his own TV show
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:38pm Madi:

Side note: I used the word 'whatnot' twice since hearing the footage..."ribs and whatnot".
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:38pm spodiodi:

fred: It's completely refreshing. I think have misunderstood the DJs intent, and callers' sentiment. I'm pro-Ramsey. Just felt like he was taking some unjust shots. (To be clear: in the comment to which you refer, I was being sarcastic. I need to work on that.)
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:39pm spodiodi:

Exactly. Some way to sue him.
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:40pm spodiodi:

use* (not sue)
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:42pm spodiodi:

Mr. Ramsey seems to be getting a similar reaction/treatment to Antoine Dodson. The song playing -case in point- (or is this a more general reaction now?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/7/13 6:43pm Carmichael:

"Only the echoes ... of my funky mind, baby ...."
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:48pm spodiodi:

Mermaids, FTW.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/7/13 6:49pm Carmichael:

What the hell is going on here? Who the hell is this guy? What the hell is he talking about?
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:49pm Danne D:

This guy sounds like Harry Caray
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:50pm spodiodi:

Mer-mericans UNITE!
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:50pm Danne D:

They are talking about the Mermaid Parade, an annual tradition on Coney Island. Chris T is the emcee. It may not happen this year due to Sandy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/7/13 6:51pm Carmichael:

Oh. Since I didn't hear an intro and this guy just started yapping, I thought I was listening to Frangry and Michele's show.
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:52pm spodiodi:

  Tue. 5/7/13 6:55pm spodiodi:

What's the most dangerous old Coney Island ride that you've heard about?
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:55pm Cheri Pi:

Speaking of product placement, just got my BT shirt today!
  Tue. 5/7/13 6:56pm spodiodi:

Was ist der BT?
Avatar Tue. 5/7/13 6:59pm Danne D:

Thanks Chris, have a good night :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/7/13 7:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think BT is probably Brian Turner, who DJs here 3 - 6 PM Tuesdays.
