@irwin- Right about todays 9:00 AM slot- painful. Normally that time slot is so enjoyable. Their two personalities, added together are reverse synergy.

where do you buy fleas then @PierreDelecto?

Ronald my salon stylist gives them to me. They are "fleabies"

thought ken and andy were great this morning. seeing ken slowly lose his mind as he realizes andy has no idea what they are actually doing had me cracking up at my desk
Avatar 4:11pm Irwin:

lunchie: Agree. It was an entertaining three hours. Now if Dylan's ticker would just cooperate so they can activate the real obit show.
  4:11pm jan:

Irwin- "reverse synergy"- Thought I was being clever- the sum of the parts less than the whole? it's not a bad thing?
Avatar 4:13pm Irwin:

I love their reverse synergy. What's it called when two chemicals interact explosively?

I tried amyl nitrate once. Then I decided I would name my daughter Amyl. It has a nice ring to it.
  4:16pm jan:

Irwin- Andy probably can answer that question. My question to you: all those comments of yours ridiculing 7 second delay, were expressing your true love for their show?

  4:25pm jan:

Irwin: Can't get an accurate read on that... Like all irony, it may be tinged with unconscious hostility- reflecting love or possible malice. My wife came home early and told me to turn off the radio. It's set down low, now, but may have to go off altogether.

Jan: My love for Ken and Andy AND their terribly flawed show is boundless. Highlight of my week. I offer that entirely irony-free.
  4:32pm spodiodi:

I think you misheard. Gamboling is Andy's compulsion.
  4:35pm spodiodi:

It does sound like a pretty nice hat.
