The program formerly known as The Fuzzy Glove Hour, Whores, and The Happiness Hut. Ken and Andy, also known as The Enema Boys, further lower WFMU's already abysmal standards on a weekly basis. Stunt radio which subjects the radio audience to concepts and topics which mature adults should not have to endure. Find the fatal flaw. (Visit homepage.)

Listener comments!

  6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Not sax-, but DAXophone?! Holy mackerel!
And BARBED cockatoos? What a crazy bunch!
  6:03pm kat330:

  6:03pm Philo Gristle:

My ears! My ears!
  6:04pm kat330:

[That's NOT re: Ken being sick, btw. Was for TMBG confirmation]
  6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Dizzie Miss Lizzie! Welcome to our nightmare!
(Lean closer to the mic, and chew gum. That's even better.)
  6:04pm dc pat:

Kiss the mic Lizzie!
  6:04pm Principal Vernon:

This is detention, punks. Each of you, write a thousand word essay about yourself. You have 54 minutes.
  6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

And I agree with Andy, 3 minute fire evacuation and safety procedure speech would be funny in a theater with virtually no one in it.
  6:05pm kat330:

Ken, here are some telepathically sent healing waves to you: }}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} [called teeps]
  6:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Yes, TMBG are in fact "a *real* thing"! And, they came back TWICE! Swell fellas! :)
  6:06pm Lizardner Dave:

I have to say Andy is on fire already tonight. The "I'll write your name down" line and the "your parents must read the newspaper and sometimes you look over their shoulder" line are brilliant.
  6:06pm Marmalade Kitty:

Ken should write an essay for all of us..
  6:06pm Danne D:

Love the board, can't believe I got through
  6:08pm Danne D:

Principal Vernon clearly doesn't read the board - most shows we all are writing 1000 word essays about ourselves. That's not homework - it's practice.
  6:08pm Danne D:

LOL they've been doing the show longer than Lizzie's been alive!
  6:09pm Principal Vernon:

If the show is older than Lizzie, WHY ISN'T IT MORE MATURE THAN SHE IS???????
  6:10pm Caryn:

Oh lord, don't leave Andy alone with a kid! He'll make pedophile jokes again!
  6:10pm Danne D:

I was gonna vote for the L one as well. The zig-zag one always screws me up.
  6:11pm kat330:

Caryn, forgot to ask on prior list. Heard anything about that job?
  6:11pm Danne D:

I thought Andy was gonna bring up Tamigachis
  6:11pm Caryn:

It has to be said that retro games have come back in a big way in recent years.
  6:11pm G:

Angry Birds is so 2011
  6:11pm Danne D:


Tetris is on facebook and twitter!
  6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Principal: The show is spoiled, it does whatever it wants, it has no structure, doesn't follow through, no discipline. In theory Ken should be the show's "parent", but instead is locked in trying to indulge instead of guide..
  6:12pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I think I have insurance against this sort of stories.
  6:12pm Caryn:

@kat: I'm supposed to hear at the end of the month. 150 applicants got through to the interview phase, so the interviews are gonna take some time.
  6:12pm Marmalade Kitty:

Vodka mule time.. :)
  6:13pm Danne D:

LOL Dave - look though your email pledge receipts
  6:13pm kat330:

Oh, wow, Hadn't realized it was that competitive, but means it must be a gem. Paljon onnea!!
  6:13pm other david:

This is... wondrous radio
  6:13pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Actually, I bought into the losing the will to live insurance.
  6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

NO notes?! She's going commando!
  6:14pm kat330:

I heard Brown mentioned. Is that where Lizzie went?
  6:14pm mark on the train to northport:

The plus or t
  6:14pm mark on the train to northport:

The plus or t
  6:15pm G:

@kat: is going soon
  6:15pm kiemzi:

i like the circle
  6:15pm pierre:

the shape i like is this one
  6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

The 2x2 square!!! You'd think it would be so easy and compact, but unless you have ground space or a long L on its back, it will just complicate your strategy later!!
  6:15pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

The "T" is the way to go.
  6:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Danne D!
  6:16pm Danne D:

oops did I hang up too soon?
  6:16pm Danne D:

Hiya Matt :) You gotta call now
  6:16pm kat330:

Aha. Well, good luck, Lizzie! And may you want to remain there 4x as long as I did!
  6:17pm moose:

cinnamon whiskey and root beer
  6:17pm Danne D:

So the choices are L, T, Square, Straight-line, and Squiggle, right?
  6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I think Lizzie said she will be attending Brown U this fall.
  6:17pm Danne D:

LOL Lizzie actually sounds like Keili
  6:17pm Caryn:

@kat: 330 people applied, 150 people are interviewed, 60 get jobs. So that's still pretty good, percentage-wise. 40 % of people interviewed get jobs.
  6:18pm mark on the train to northport:

Lizzie work on your radio voice , more base !
  6:18pm pierre:

straight line is pretty good too
  6:18pm Danne D:

The straight one is like a sandwich? I think the Block one would be more like a sandwich.
  6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: T, AND the plus sign (+ of four equal pixels and center). At least I remember a separate T and +...
  6:19pm pierre:

At the same time i'm thinking : "wait no, the best thing about Tetris, is THE MUSIC"

  6:19pm Danne D:

anybody here pick up my lame "long time caller first time listener" joke?
  6:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, you BET I did Danne! Goes on your permanent record! :)
  6:19pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I think it went over their heads.
  6:19pm Danne D:

Plus sign? There's no plus sign - that would have 5 boxes.
  6:20pm pierre:

(it goes great as a background music to SSD)

  6:20pm Caryn:

@Danne: yes indeed.

My faves: 1) long bar, 2) L and 3) square.
  6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: The Tetris music is great! It's just a digital version of a Russian folk song, "Korobeiniki".
  6:21pm Danne D:

Nobody else likes the squiggle. I mean it LOOKS cool, but it always seems to screw me up
  6:21pm Listener John from NJ:

I must be hopelessly over the hill, because I didn't know what Tetris is . . .
  6:21pm mark on the train to northport:

Danne d: depending on what version of Tertris you are playing there is a 5 cube plus and 8 cube hollow box .
  6:22pm moose:

i like the rocket music at the end from the game boy- still play it on my original
  6:22pm Caryn:

While Tetris has memorable music, the music to Bubble Bobble still wins, hands down: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-pUAK1gR2M
  6:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Huh, must have remembered the T sign differently. So all pieces have only 4 boxes?
  6:23pm kat330:

Ken is sounding a lot stronger.
  6:24pm Leavened Bread Trafficker:

Hey, buddy.
(opens trench coat) You want some leavened bread? Can't make it through the day without some?
  6:24pm Caryn:

Some versions of Tetris have the +. But the original only had 4-block shapes.
  6:24pm G:

@L John: Tetris was around in the mid 80s, and is back again now.

You passed out of the cultural mainstream so many decades ago that you missed both the original *and* the comeback. :-(
  6:24pm For-Profit Colleges:

Hey, buddy.
(opens trench coat) You want some higher education?
  6:24pm kat330:

Does everyone receive an FMU certificate of course completion after this?
  6:25pm Danne D:

@mark that sounds like some fancy super-tetris. I'm strictly old-school.
  6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Lizzie: Sahara University in southern Algeria! NEVER rains!
  6:25pm pierre:

@MAtt : it has a Ska kinda of feeling too…
  6:25pm Philo Gristle:

Greatest game music ever was by Rob Hubbard for the 1986 game version of the crazy 2000AD comic book, Nemesis the Warlock: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdzfOXkZrY0
  6:25pm Cliff:

When I visited Cornell, it was raining all day. But I ended up going there anyways for undergrad and staying for grad school, 13 years total.
  6:26pm kat330:

Re: "tour guide" at Brown: It's the early interviewer who seals the deal. For e.g., I was promised great and active theatre and music departments." Not so.
  6:26pm Traditional Colleges:

Would you like a fast food job with that art history degree?
  6:26pm mark on the train to northport:

Is Brown is for boring people ?
  6:26pm mark on the train to northport:

Is Brown is for boring people ?
  6:26pm Cliff:

But I'm from Syracuse so I'm used to rain 300 days out of the year.
  6:26pm Danne D:

Would she still go to Brown if she knew Chris Berman went to school there?
  6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh thank God it's over!!!
No wait, it isn't!! We still have 33 minutes of disaster to go!
  6:27pm kat330:

Brown delivers as UPS, maybe not so a few decades ago in Providence. For all I know, Brown's music and theatre departments are top notch now.
  6:27pm G:

Entre nous, Brown is generally reputed as the fluff Ivy, both with regard to the students and as far as the faculty quality are concerned...
  6:28pm other david:

But WHAT a disaster!

This is quite brilliant, good luck Lizzie & get well soon Ken
  6:28pm Caryn:

In the olden days, there was a ruling stating how much dough had to go into 12 baked goods (to standardise sizes and ensure that customers were getting their money's worth). Bakers would try to get around the rule by making 13 rolls/muffins/whatever instead of 12, thus meaning they spent less materials per baked good and made more profits. Thus 13 became the "baker's dozen".
  6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: The "click" percussion does add a rather ska, shifty sound to the music!
  6:29pm kat330:

@G, yeah I only figured that out after I got there. But they paid my way fully, so I couldn't exactly complain. But I could move on, and I did.
  6:29pm mark on the train to northport:

Lizzie what are you going to study ?
  6:29pm G:

I don't know what the truth is, but that's been the word on the academic street for decades...
  6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Well nothing to lose then! Not getting a lot out of it--no penalty! Just move on!
  6:30pm Danne D:

Did Ken forget to train Lizzie on the comments board? :(
  6:30pm kat330:

No grades and no distribution requirements. A slacker's paradise.
  6:31pm Danne D:

I shoulda gone to Brown :(
  6:31pm dale:

ken, the jackie gleason movie was gigot (i think). he was a deaf mute idiot in paris
  6:31pm Listener John from NJ:

@G -- I was culturally up to date in the early mid 1980s, but it's true -- I have been hopelessly out of date since then.

Feel better, Ken!
  6:31pm kat330:

I believe it was Ira Magaziner who fought for those things the year before I arrived.
  6:31pm G:

That's what *I've* been hearing since the 80s, kat... Plenty of celeb kids, for that reason. The Ivy party/gut school...
  6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Ivys only so well regarded because of their massive endowments? Good professors and students can be found anywhere, there's otherwise nothing "magic" about Ivy League except for preconceptions of their status.
  6:32pm Danne D:

Did Lizzie get training on how to maintain Andy's will to live?
  6:32pm pierre:

@ Matt : thanks for the culture "Korobeiniki" is fantastic with analogue instruments !
  6:32pm Listener John from NJ:

I know a high school French teacher at a public school who showed "Gigi" (with Maurice Chevalier) to her class. Some parents complained . . .
  6:32pm Caryn:

In addition to the program I chose to enter, I also could've gone to university to study Latin and Ancient Roman Literature. I suspect my career opportunities would've been limited to researcher and Vatican call center employee. That kinda made me choose the other program.
  6:33pm mark on the train to northport:

So Adam where are you going to school ?
  6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Ken and Andy always ignore us on this board! His inaction to train Lizzie trained her on that issue!
  6:33pm Danne D:

@Matt - massive endowments do tend to higher regard, it's true
  6:33pm G:

Businesses and organizations and govts hire from **school reputation**. Getting that stamp on your ass does help, not to mention the networking you develop while at a major Ivy (with faculty, and with fellow students and their families)
  6:34pm Danne D:

@Listener John you sure it wasn't G.G. Allin?
  6:34pm kat330:

@Matt: To a great extent, yep. The big irony for me was one of the best music departments in the country was just up the road at IU in Bloomington, IN. Even though my parents met there, I just didn't want to go from a huge high school class to a humongous college class and campus. My bad.
  6:34pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I think legally there has to be someone that is actually trained to run the board. Luckily Irwin is there.
  6:34pm fill-in call screener mike noble:

madness! train wreck!
  6:34pm Listener John from NJ:

@Matt from Springfield: The Ivies may not ALWAYS have the best of everything, but they do serve to cement the class status of the students.
  6:34pm mark on the train to northport:

New topic: what can brown do for you ?
  6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

True, endowments and esp. social networking (no pun intended) are the real value in Ivys.
@pierre: My pleasure! A great Slavic piece!
  6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Seattle Dave: Spoke (typed) too soon! :)
  6:36pm fill-in call screener mike noble:

if you call you will reach ME
  6:36pm Danne D:

Whoa didn't realize I got to talk to Mike Noble :)
  6:36pm Listener John from NJ:

Danne D: I don't like the movie "Gigi" myself, but I -- and the French teacher -- really truly do NOT want to see a movie about GG Allin!
  6:36pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

True. All is lost.
  6:36pm Caryn:

Yay, No-balls is call screening!
  6:38pm G:

Is that Thin Lizzie? :-P
  6:38pm Danne D:

The Phrase should not to be confused with Andy's Phrase that Pays
  6:38pm chen:

  6:38pm kat330:

Lizzie, get to know the RISD folks right away. Hopefully they're as cool as they were back in 19mumblemumblemumble.
  6:39pm Caryn:

I think "Gigi" looks gorgeous, and young Caron and Jourdan are lovely (and Gingold & Chevalier are quite charming). But as a total, the film has some issues.
  6:39pm chen:

<3 Lizzie <3
  6:40pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I want to hire Andy to entertain me on my next flight.
  6:40pm Dr. Oscar:

Hey guys, how did i get here?
  6:40pm Danne D:

- -- -- -------- -------
  6:41pm fill-in call screener mike noble:

have they found a new miss seven second delay?
  6:41pm Danne D:

- -- -- -------e -e--e-
  6:41pm Danne D:

why did she abdicate last week?
  6:42pm pierre:

" I AM SO -------- -------"
  6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

"I AM NO..."
  6:43pm Danne D:

- -- -- -a-----e -e--e-
  6:43pm Caryn:

The earliest written description of "Hangman" calls the game "Birds, Beasts and Fishes". The word to be quessed was always an animal, and the first and last letters were given at the start of the game.
  6:43pm kat330:

"On the wagon"? Waiting for Andy to launch into Hand Me Down That Can of Beans.
  6:43pm Danne D:

- -- -- -a-o---e -e--e
  6:44pm Dr. Oscar:

anyone wanna go to dinner later?
  6:44pm chen:

the most common letters are "etaoin shrdlu cmfwyp vbgkqj xz"
  6:44pm kat330:

Sorry, Doc, just finished.
  6:45pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

  6:45pm Danne D:

Fatal Attraction: Seven Second Delay Edition
  6:46pm G:

so in the first three short words, the only vowels are i and u ????
  6:46pm kat330:

Ken wouldn't have stood for Quinn being in the studio without him (nor WITH Andy).
  6:46pm Danne D:

Could be a y in there G

- -- -- -a-o---e -e--e
  6:47pm kat330:

Ken seems to be smitten with Q.
  6:47pm Danne D:

the 4th word is favorite
  6:48pm Danne D:

- -- my favorite -e--e-
  6:48pm G:

I -- my favorite -e--e
  6:48pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Andy should be getting scared.
  6:48pm Danne D:

He forgot an A.

Answer: I am my favorite person
  6:49pm kat330:

Person doesn't work either.
  6:49pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

"X" is my favorite letter. Andy will always win.
  6:49pm G:

yeah, i was wondering how there could be no a or e or o in the first three words. seemed a low percentage possibility
  6:50pm Danne D:

wow that guy is good - what a brutal puzzle - he is right.
_ is my favorite letter
  6:50pm Danne D:

Or Q Dave

Or Z
  6:51pm Danne D:

someone else needs to call and foil andy
  6:51pm G:

Because andy knows it's 20+ to 1 against guessing that one letter at the start
  6:51pm Danne D:

V also could be in there
  6:51pm Philo Gristle:

Wim Wenders... W.
  6:51pm kat330:

I am my favorite belle.
  6:51pm Listener John from NJ:

She's pretty smart, that Liz -- she went to the Pina Bausch movie and knows who she was!
  6:52pm Danne D:

I'll go with Q officially.
  6:52pm greg:

he also needs to write down his answer! he changes it until you get to the last letter!
  6:52pm Caryn:

If Ken & Andy are worried about logistics, food and such during the theremin performance, maybe they should contact Wavy Gravy and the rest of the Hog Farm. They're still around.
  6:52pm Danne D:

@kat that is way too fair an answer for Andy to use
  6:52pm kat330:

  6:53pm G:

Writing mysteries is a big logic problem. Andy chose a sentence where that first letter has zero context to hlep you guess it.

And he can always lie about which letter he chose. Twenty six card monte.
  6:53pm Danne D:

Theremin on the next show - bet PGB will be in the house!
  6:53pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Yeah, that's what I meant. He can say it is any letter.
  6:53pm Danne D:

Caller is genius
  6:53pm Danne D:

good try
  6:54pm kat330:

I is my favorite pette?
  6:55pm ledzeppelinsucks:

  6:56pm G:

[any random letter not yet asked about] is my favorite letter

20-1 or so against guessing, even if andy doesn't lie/cheat
  6:56pm kat330:

  6:56pm Danne D:

13 possibly letters could be in the front.
  6:57pm Danne D:

Andy relying on his old carnival tricks.
  6:57pm kat330:

I never saw 6 spaces in the final word.
  6:57pm Danne D:

Ugh Ken, there already is a V
  6:57pm other david:

Andy, king of the trolls!
  6:58pm kat330:

Lovely APOD today folks in NYC (and elsewhere): http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/
  6:58pm ledzeppelinsucks:

how can a Brown student not know the difference between hung and hanged?
  6:59pm G:

you have a hang up, ledzep :-P
  6:59pm Cliff:

Oh, D! Of course!
  6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Fraud Andy! You should have had a sealed envelope confirming your choice at the beginning!
  6:59pm ledzeppelinsucks:

the man is hanged
  6:59pm Danne D:

Have a good night everyone :)
  6:59pm Danne D:

Good Job Lizzie!
  6:59pm G:

andy worked out how he couldnt possibly lose. deal. :-)
  7:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Now, no chance to find out how Andy would have weaseled out of that prize...

Still, that was a fun show! Good night everyone!
  7:00pm kat330:

G'night all!
  7:00pm Listener John from NJ:

Good luck in your future at WFMU, Lizzie!
  7:02pm Danne D:

@Matt - the structure of the contest WAS how he weaseled out of that prize. 7 letters to get hung. Andy had 13 letters to fill that first spot :)
  7:02pm Philo Gristle:

Dead air chicken!!!
  7:02pm chen:

great show!
  11:07pm Charlie Boy:

Lizzie stay on

Lizzie be the only one
  3:42pm kensbeardman:

Only Ken and Andy wouldn't take advantage of this rare virginal opportunity. Sad really.
