Chris and Jason from Project Pink, the extraordinary Floyd tribute show you can see at the Meyer Theater Saturday night, dropped by the studio this morning and we played Would You Rather? A number of people asked for a list of the questions. Here they are with Chris and Jason's answers in BOLD.


Be pummeled to death by wild monkey's using small but powerful golden hammers or be eaten alive by the living members of the cast of the Lawrence Welk Show?

Spend the rest of your life dressed only in the that green question mark suit the guy from the late night infomercials wears while yelling about free money from the government or only be allowed to scratch your balls during total solar eclipses?

Have the only music that you're ever allowed to listen to for the rest of your life be any the hundreds of songs Celine Dion has recorded in French or only the jingle for The Lullaby Shop?

Spend the best of your life suffering from a case of free roaming nipples where your man nips would constantly move about your body or have to drink a 32 ounce Slushie made with cold, congealing fat liposucked from Susan Boyle's flabby arms?

Tom Zalaski use your tongue to clean out his ears or have Tom Milbourn wear your ass like a hat?

Yesterday, someone posted a link to what they called the... Saddest. Book. Ever. on Fark.com. While I couldn't agree more, I was reminded of a product I first discovered in my grocer's freezer case a few years ago that is clearly the... Saddest. Food Item. Ever! And it's made right here in our area.

It's Orv's Party For One Pizza.

Seriously? Party For One?

Now, first off, the title is a bit misleading. Unless the pizza comes with a bottle of hand lotion and a coupon for a free month of the Spice Channel, it has no right being called a "Party for One".

But sweet Jesus could the name be any more depressing?

Here are the only other food products I can think of that would be as sad as Orv's Party for One Pizza. (If you don't see them on your grocer's shelves, ask for them by name!)

Nobody Will Ever Love You Macaroni

You're Friends Are All Laughing At You Behind Your Back Cottage Cheese.

You Will Die Cold and Alone In A Puddle of Your Own Sick Grape Soda.

It Will Be Weeks Before Anyone Finds Your Body Clam Chowder.

Your Ex-Girlfriend Has Told Everybody About the Time You Couldn't Get It Up Spaghetti Sauce.

The Older You Get the More You Look Like Ron Howard's Creepy Brother Canned Peaches in Heavy Syrup.



We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...the 20-year-old Wisconsin Rapids man who had to be rescued by firefighters when he became stuck in the laundry chute after children dared him to slide down it. What's more, he caused a young girl in the house to panic when firefighters brought out a saw to cut the man out of the chute and she thought they were going to cut him in half.


For doing something stupid on a dare from children, which I believe is the same way John McCain ended up with Sarah Palin as his running mate.

For trying to slide down the chute feet first, when clearly, he should have gone the other way because if he had landed on his head he at least wouldn't have damaged a working body part.

And for getting stuck in a chute that's not designed for entry...which, if I'm not mistaken, is George Michael's worst possible nightmare.

We are proud to name the Wisconsin Rapids man who got stuck trying to slide down a laundry chute on a dare from some kids as this week's Rick and Len...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

Join Len and Ross (Rick is still faking sick!) Friday morning when they'll be joined by Shane Mauss who's appearing at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton. Shane's been on with Conan a bunch of times and his Comedy Central special just debuted last week! Make your reservation to see him in person at the Skyline this weekend by calling 920-734-JOKE.

Shane is originally from LaCrosse and he's just twisted enough to make me think he might be the guy drowning all those UW-LaCrosse students in the Mississippi. If you don't believe me, check out these clips of the man in action.

Brunswick Community College in Calabash, North Carolina has purchased the Close Encounters Gentleman's Club and is planning to turn it into classroom space. As a result, we here at the Rick and Len Show thought it would be a good time to take a look at...


If your physics professor demonstrates Newton's Laws of Motion, by using his supple thighs to slide down the pole in the middle of your "lecture hall"....your school might have been a strip club.

If you have to pay an extra hundred bucks to take trigonometry because it's held in the champagne room...your school might have been a strip club.

If pieces of volcanic rock are not the hardest things that have ever been in the room that is now your geology lab...your school might have been a strip club.

If despite the fact that it doesn't serve any kind of seafood, the cafeteria always seems to smell like fish...your school might have been a strip club.

If your History of Medieval Warfare class has a two drink minimum...your school might have been a strip club.

If your tuition is due by the end of the first week of the semester and must be paid in full to the cashier in the business office...in singles...your school might have been a strip club.

If your school colors are Amber and Sapphire...your school might have been a strip club.

If no matter what the class, the question most asked of all the teachers is "How do I get this frickin' glitter off of me?"...your school was definitely a strip club!

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...the Fond du Lac man who punctured the tires on his own truck because he didn’t want his wife driving it while he was in jail. The man was arrested and taken to jail on a bail jumping charge. Police found the man and arrested him only because they received the report of him puncturing his own tires.


For not just making a-hole but being an a-hole.

For trying to prevent his wife from leaving the house while guaranteeing that he, himself won’t be going anywhere for a while, either.

And for getting himself locked up where he could possibly have more miles put on him than his wife ever could have ever put on his truck.

We are proud to name the Fond du Lac man who punctured the tires to his own truck to stop his wife from driving it while he was in jail as this week’s Rick and Len...WEENIE OF THE WEEK.

Here's what celebrities were doing on St. Patrick's Day....

Representative Eric Massa...He's going to spend his day looking for a shirt that says "Tickle Me, I'm Irish!"

Barrack Obama...will spend St. Patrick's day searching for a leprechaun to lead him to his pot of gold because it's the only way he's going to get any funding for health care. The jokes on him, however, since the leprechaun lost all his gold by investing it with AIG.

Rush Limbaugh...will spend the day seeing rainbows and leprechauns. Then again, when you're that whacked out on Oxycontin, every day you see rainbows and leprechauns.

The 4 superglue chicks...They're going to handcuff an Irishman to the bed in a Stockbridge motel and glue his shillelagh to his stomach.

Sarah Palin...will spend St. Patrick's Day at home in Wasilla, Alaska. Which is okay since she can see Ireland from her house.

Former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer...is going to pay an Irish girl thousands of dollars to kiss his Blarney Stones.

Michael Jackson...after spending years turning from black to white, will, for the first time, spend St. Patrick's Day turning an appropriate shade of green.

Len Nelson...will take some time today to dance a traditional Irish jig...to the Village People's YMCA.

Tiger Woods...will spend St. Patrick's Day looking for a lucky four leaf clover...assuming, of course, that four leaf clovers can be found growing the vulvas of cocktail waitresses and porn stars.

Well, the results are in. And after a week of voting here at WAPL.com, I, Rick, have been chosen by you the listeners as "the most likely to be arrested in Mexico" during this year's International Incident trip. Well, screw you! I have returned without seeing the inside of a Mexican jail!

How did I do it. Well, here's the:


10. Just being a drunken a-hole not specifically against any Mexican laws.

9. I bought off the local authorities with a bunch of Snuggies and Slankets...or as they're known in Mexico: ponchos.

8. Peeing in the streets is totally acceptable there which is why Puerto Vallarta is known worldwide as "Fond du Lac on the Mexican Pacific".

7. Mexican police felt sorry for me after seeing my 3rd degree case of "thong burn".

6. Convinced local authorities that returning to Wisconsin and working with Len was a worse punishment than anything they could dole out.

3. Bribed the cop with items 5 and 4.

2. I was recognized by local police as a beloved American entertainer from my picture on WAPL "Feces the Clown" t-shirts. (still available by clicking here!)

1. The sheep didn't file charges.


How exciting! I returned to work today to find an e-mail from the folks at FOUND Magazine informing me that an item I submitted is their website's Find of the Day!

If you're not familiar with FOUND, it is a magazine that features odd and quirky things that have been lost or discarded and then found by people all over the world.

This was my submission. One of my co-workers passed this slip of paper along to me after he found it on the floor while ushering for a Christmas concert in Appleton back in December. It was folded-over and labeled "Jerk!" on the front.

It truly is does raise more questions than it answers. (such as, if a giraffe's tongue is really 22 inches long, why do female giraffes always look so dissatisfied?)


Saturday, March 13, 2010


Well, we're almost home from the International Incident. It's about 9:30pm Saturday night and we are flying over Illinois. I'm going to go use the restroom in hopes that they accidentally jettison my effluvium somewhere over Peoria! Fingers crossed!



We are proud to name as this week's Rick & Len Show Weenie of the Week... Rob Voss of Valder, who the other afternoon, after a few adult beverages and before coming down from his room here at the resort for the afternoon broadcast, brushed his teeth. And why does that make him Weenie of the Week? Well, because in his "slightly" inebriated state he accidentally brushed with Benedryl allergy cream.

So, for brushing his teeth with and allergy cream which leads me to believe that somewhere on his body he must have a rash that's freakishly minty fresh.

For at least not mistaking someone's thong for dental floss.

And for putting something stiff and foul tasting in his mouth...and he wasn't even a participant in yesterday's Laycation sex contest.

We are proud to name Paul Voss of Valders as this week's Rick and Len International Incident....Weenie of the Week!

Last night, virtually the entire International Incident crew went on a pirate ship cruise and a fun time was had by all. However, some scurvy landlubbers tried to pass themselves off as real pirates. (I'm looking at you Jeff & Tammy and Bob & Lisa).

So, here's some signs...you might not be a real pirate!

If when you hear the word poop-deck, the first thing that comes to mind is the time you ran out of toilet paper during a poker game and had to wipe with the playing cards...you might not be a real pirate.

If the only time you've ever heard the phrase "blow the man down" was at a pool party at George Michaels...you might not be a real pirate.

If the only time you've seen a man hung....was at that same George Michael pool party...you might not be a real pirate.

If your favorite letter of the alphabet between Q and T is S (and not Rrrrrr)...you might not be a real pirate.

If you think Davy Jones locker is located at the gym right between Mickey Dolenz and Mike Nesmith's lockers...you might not be a real pirate.

If when you hear the term booty, you think of Jennifer Lopez before you think of gold dubloons...you might not be a real pirate.

If the closest you've ever come to performing an old sea shanty is singing along with the McDonald's "Gimmie that filet 'o fish" jingle...you are definitely not a real pirate!

Tuesday, March 9, 2010


Well, Len and I have been working hard here in P.V...Len has been working on a good buzz and I've been working on Calgaro's last nerve. Of course, I've also been laboring...under the illusion that the listeners are enjoying spending time with me.

I am having a blast here.

However, my most indelible memory of the trip, so far, is still seeing longtime Green Bay alderman Guy Zima digging through the recycling bin at the Milwaukee airport because he's apparently too cheap to buy a newspaper. I don't know if he, like us, was Mexico bound. I'll keep my ears open for news about any gringos getting arrested shoplifting Chirizo sausage in their pants.

It's also important to remember that these trips aren't all just drinking and partying. They are also very educational. For instance, this morning, during the game we called "Doodie Duty", we learned that unlike in the movie Caddyshack, Baby Ruth candy bars do NOT float when you put them in the swimming pool. But, in the words of Bill Murray, "it's no big deal". It was still fun watching listeners swimming after them (blindfolded, no less). Mark Van Boxtel of Green Bay was the winner!

Well, I just saw someone go past my window....and my room is on the 6th floor. I better go find out what that is all about. It is getting a little crazy here, but in the words of Hunter S. Thompson " It never got too weird for me!"


Friday, March 5, 2010


We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenies of the Week...the folks at the Appleton Post Crescent, who, in a caption on page A-5 of yesterday's paper, identified Appleton Mayor Tim Hanna...as Barack Obama. Well, to be accurate (which when talking about the Post-Crescent is kind of ironic), the caption just said "Obama". We're giving them the benefit of the doubt that they mistook the bespectacled, so-white-he's-almost-translucent Hanna for President Barack Obama and not for Michelle, Sasha or Malia.


For mistaking a guy who is half black for a guy who is half-assed.

For this week being known for the caption they put under a photo, when they're usually known for being the paper you put under a puppy.

And for not being able to tell the President of the United States from the Mayor of Appleton...which, at least, is a step up from their usual default position of just not being able to tell their asses from a hole in the ground.

We are proud to name the folks at the Appleton Post Crescent as this week's Rick and Len...WEENIES OF THE WEEK!

Comic Chinaman is going to join us in the studio to wok the house Friday morning. See Chinaman at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton through Saturday night.

A new report indicates that more and more senior citizens are smoking pot. However, as a public service of the Rick and Len Show, here's some signs...


If your wife's hat is as red as the whites of your eyes...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If you can't tell your bong from your respirator...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If you go through a half dozen jars of apple sauce a week because it's the only munchies you can eat without teeth...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If you hide your stash by tucking it under one of your spats...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If you try to sink up Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd but you can't find a copy of Dark Side of the Moon that will play on your Victrola...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If your mouth is as dry as your wife's lady business...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If you can't get used to using the term "dude" after years of using the term "whippersnapper" and find yourself calling people "dudersnappers"...you might be too old to be smoking pot.

If you tell your dealer you want to buy a bag and he doesn’t know if you're talking about pot or for your colostomy...you're definitely too old to be smoking pot.


Barack Obama gets a surprise visit in the night from ex-Presidents Bush Sr., Bush Jr., Clinton, Ford, Reagan and Carter to get a few pointers about the Consumer Financial Protection Agency and why they think it's so important. From the folks at Funny or Die! Stars Will Ferrell, Dana Carney, Darell Hammond, Chevy Chase, Dan Akroyd Jim Carrey and more!

An officer was dispatched to Hickory Lane for a report of people standing around a vehicle trying to flag down other passing cars. When the officer arrived on the scene, he found two older women inside the vehicle holding notes which they had been holding up asking for help. The women were able to yell through the closed windows of their vehicle that the battery on the car had died so the power windows and locks would not operate. The officer was able to communicate back that the women could manually lift up the door lock button, which they then did in order to exit the vehicle.


Norwegian Cross Country skier Bjorn Hjelmeset attributed his poor performance skiing the 2nd leg of the 4-man relay to... watching too much porn. Really! Bjorn told Sports Illustrated "I've think I have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have a room next to another skier. Every night there were unmistakable noises from his bedroom. So I think that is the reason I stunk up the competition". So, here's our....


If you accidentally poked another competitor with your pole...and you're a figure skater...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If the hill they're skiing down for the alpine events is in your lap...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If you've been seen wandering around the Olympic Village with your medal hanging from an appendage other than your neck...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If the flame of the Olympic torch isn't as red as the friction burns on your wiener...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If you've been repeatedly penalized for high sticking...and you’re not a hockey player...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If thanks to state of the art silicone lubricants, your crotch has a slicker surface than the bobsled track...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If your elbow has gotten a better workout than the lead sweeper on the Swedish curling team...you might be watching too much porn at the Olympics.

If the Double McTwist executed by Shaun White to garner the Snowboarding gold was nothing compared to the Double McTwist you did in your pants...you're definitely watching too much porn at the Olympics.


College spring break is in full swing and the WAPL International Incident just days away. With that in mind, it's time to check out the latest trend among hotel guests. It's bed jumping! A website called bedjump.com has become a clearinghouse for photos of folks jumping on their hotel beds in cool and creative ways. Here's some of our faves.
