We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...
the 16-year-old who was busted early Tuesday morning doing 111 miles per hour on
Highway 151 in Dodge County while on his way home from what he called a
late night "taco run" to Beaver Dam. In his defense, the driver told cops he thought he was only doing 95.
So, for not trying to outrun the deputy into the next county...I mean didn't he realize that his late night taco run qualifies as a "run for the border" anyway?
For not using a plausible excuse when pulled over...sorry, officer, but I just ate five tacos and I was speeding home because I really gotta poop. Like now!
And for telling the officer that you thought you were only going 95 miles per hour instead of the 111 he says you were traveling, which is still 30 miles per hour over the speed limit. That proves that with your math skills, you'll likely end up working in an industry where you won't have to travel far for fast food'll be behind the counter...and you'll be getting the employee discount.
We are proud to name the 16-year-old 111-miler per hour Beaver Dam taco runner as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week.

The London Daily Mirror reports that the late Amy Winehouse (pop star, heavy drinker, drug queen) was in the process of trying to adopt a 10-year-old girl from the island of St. Lucia. That sounds to us like a pretty bad idea!

Having Amy Winehouse as your parent would be like having Billy Joel as your chauffer.

It would be like having Ozzy Osbourne as your translator.

Like having Courtney Love as your pharmacist.

Like having Lady Gaga as your personal fashion designer.

Like having Jay Cutler as your wedding planner.

Like having Larry King as your marriage counselor.

Like having Michell Bachmann as your history teacher.

Like having Barack Obama as your credit counselor.

Like having Governor Walker as your union's local chairman.

Like having Dee Snider of Twisted Sister as your makeup technician.

In fact, having Amy Winehouse as a parent would be like having Rick McNeal
as your sex ed instructor.

With Paul McCartney's big shows tonight and tomorrow night at Wrigley Field, it seems like a good time to take a look at's funny Beatles graphs.

Friday, July 29, 2011


We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week...20-year-old Jordan Cardella of South Milwaukee and his two buddies Anthony Woodall and Michael Wezyk. Cardella convinced his friends to shoot him with a rifle so that his ex-girlfriend would feel sorry for him and take him back. Even the prosecutor called this "the most phenomenally stupid case I've ever seen". And Wezyk's attorney agreed, saying he was "sorry to bring something so stupid into (the judges) courtroom".


For getting his buddy to shoot a hole in his arm...which should go perfectly with the hole he must have in his head.

For coming up with a plan so dumb, Jordan, Michael and Anthony should change their names to Moe, Larry and Curly.

And for proving that a shot in the arm with a syringe may treat a virus but a shot in the arm with a rifle is no cure for a broken heart.

We are proud to name Jordan Cardella, Michael Wezyk and Anthony Woodall of South Milwaukee as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIES OF THE WEEK!


Some week's we have more than one really good Weenie of the Week Candidate (and this week we had several). Occasionally, we name a runner up, someone not quite a big enough weenie to get the full title. They're a smaller weenie. They're our Rick and Len Show COCKTAIL FRANK!

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Cocktail Frank...Sheboygan Mayor Bob Ryan who reportedly fell off the wagon HARD earlier this month, getting drunk at two bars during an alleged weekend bender in Elkhart Lake, getting into what police are calling a "scuffle" with another patron and hassling women, two of whom allegedly flashed the mayor, but not until after he was passed out on the bar.


For not realizing that Elkhart Lake bars are no place to mix politics and alcohol. That what the Kennedy Compound is for.

For falling off the wagon so many times, it's amazing he doesn't have wheel track marks across his chest.

And for not understanding that as a politician, he's supposed to be passing out favors not passing out on the bar.

We are proud to name Sheboygan Mayor Bob Ryan as this week's Rick and Len Show…COCKTAIL FRANK!

Dallas police busted this guy this week for allegedly running a sex club that he claims is a church. The "church" reportedly had porn playing on big screen televisions, topless dancers, and condom-stocked VIP rooms with beds. Here are the ways to differentiate between a sex club and a real church.

If a lot of people seem to be on their knees but none of them are actually might not be a real church.

If there are no hymns playing despite the presence of many available might not be a real church.

If the only time someone calls out the name of god, it's while they're having an might not be a real church.

If that wasn't holy water you just got sprayed might not be a real church.

If "the host" you’re expected to put in your mouth isn't a communion wafer but rather, the guy running the might not be a real church.

If the priest isn't the only one getting some might not be a real church.

If you see a woman with beads that are not a rosary because nobody in their right mind would put a rosary where she just had those might not be a real church.

If there are plenty of people getting nailed but none of them to a's definitely NOT a real church!

A guy in Sweden is receiving support from the Swedish government for having a psychological because he suffers from an addiction to Heavy Metal. Here's some of the signs you too may have a heavy metal addiction.

If you spend so much time going to concerts you hardly ever see your daughters Lars, Slash and might be addicted to heavy metal.

If you were almost late for your own wedding because you couldn’t decide which black t-shirt to might be addicted to heavy metal.

If you've ever been injured moshing at a might be addicted to heavy metal.

If you flash your metal horns at a concert so often, you end up wiggling your fingers more than a woman having sex with Rosie O' might be addicted to heavy metal.

Join us next week for the Rick and Len Show and your chance to win tickets to see a true living legend...Sir Paul McCartney at Wrigley Field!!!!!!

Rick and Len, 6 to 10 only here on the Rockin' Apple!


We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...the Appleton cop who shut down the lemonade stand run by a pair of 9 and 10 year old girls. The cop and police chief have since apologized indicating that they had misinterpreted a new ordinance enacted by the Appleton City Council.


For providing his own competition to the lemonade stand by leaving a sour taste in all our mouths for free.

For proving that in Appleton, when life gives you lemons, you make...lemon bars, lemon nut biscotti or a nice lemon meringue pie, anything but lemonade because, if you do, you’re just asking for trouble.

For apparently thinking the intent of the Appleton City Council when they wrote the new ordinance was to crack down on greedy, opportunistic, money-grubbing 9 and 10 year old girls...which, now that I think about it, given the history of the Appleton City Council, really isn't that far-fetched.

We are proud to name the Appleton cop that shut down two little girls lemonade stand as this week's Rick and Len Show...Weenie of the Week.

Gee, whiz, all somebody did was take some video from a 4-year old attempted escape from the Albany (NY) County jail and set it to a well known song (and sped it up a little). And now, the folks who run the jail have their panties in a wad. See if you can figure out why they don't like it.

Police finally tracked Kosmoski to the Wausau area after his vehicle was found stuck in a forest near Rib Mountain. He was arrested there Wednesday night after a foot chase.


For at a time when a competitor "wants to be your jeweler" instead prefers to "want to be your felon".

For going from selling 14 karat gold bracelets, to himself, sporting a pair made from a far less precious metal.

For going from selling earrings to 'earing the words "you're under arrest".

And for allegedly committing acts that could result in him being sentenced to spending up to 10 years in a place where the only jewels he’ll be getting close to will be those of an overly affectionate cellmate.

Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of Gilligan's Island, died this week. As you may or may not know, you can sing the lyrics to Amazing Grace to the tune of the Gilligan's Island theme. Try it yourself. What a fitting tribute!

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.
and Grace will lead me home.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...

Marinette Mayor Robert Harbick, who was arrested last weekend for drunk driving after leaving a fast food restaurant parking lot and smashing into a light 3:45 p.m.! Police say his blood alcohol level measured more than point-two-four percent.

So, for running over a light pole assuring he was the only thing lit up on Marinette’s streets that afternoon.

For besmirching the image of lovely little Marinette so badly that you can actually hear them snickering over the border in Menominee.

For inadvertently changing Marinette's tourism slogan from "Your City By the Bay" to "Your Mayor Under the Influence".

And for cranking the Commodores on his car radio... "You’re once, twice, three times the limit."

We are proud to name Marinette Mayor Robert Harbick, accused of driving poop-faced drunk into a light post as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week!

Friday, July 1, 2011


We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...well, first let me say this, earlier this week, we had the story of a man in Fond du Lac who had to be rescued by firefighters after he got his hand stuck while trying to retrieve a Snickers Bar from his car's gas tank. Afterward, we received a number of e-mails from listeners indicating that this poor guy should be Weenie of the Week. Really? You think he should be the Weenie? Wasn't he just doing what anyone else would do if they found someone had jammed a Snickers Bar into their gas tank? Seriously, what would you do in that situation? Leave it in there and see what kind of gas mileage it gets? So, I say "Nay!" This unfortunate Fond du Lacian is not the weenie. No! He is the victim! So, we would like to proudly name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...the jack wagon who jammed the Snickers Bar in this guy’s gas tank in the first place? Who does a thing like that?

So, for jamming something in a tight space where it doesn’t act they themselves could end up on the receiving end of should they be apprehended and sent to prison.

For apparently thinking the guys car was running like Betty White.

So, for seeming believing that there are now four grades of gasoline; regular, premium, unleaded and NOUGAT!

We are proud to name whomever stuck the Snickers Bar in the guy's gas tank in Fond du Lac (or as I like to call them, "The Bad Snicker Jammer of Fond du Lac County" ) as this week's Rick and Len Show...Weenie of the Week!

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...Joseph Sloma of Denmark, a former charter boat captain, who this week was sentenced after having been found guilty of blowing up several other charter fishing boats in Kewaunee's Salmon Harbor Marina in 2009. The only reasons Sloma ever gave to investigators for his actions was the fact that he didn't like some of the charter boat captains who owned the boats and "peer pressure".


For blowing up boats which is only acceptable behavior when it comes to inflatable dinghies.

For thinking he could destroy fishing boats and not be found gill-ty. (I am sooooo ASHAMED!)

For not understanding that if everybody in Wisconsin just blew up whatever they didn't like, Soldier Field would be nothing but a smoking crater and a pile of ash.

We are proud to name Joseph Sloma, the Brown County charter fishing boat captain who blew up his competition's boats as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

We bid farewell today to The Big Man.
The yin to The Boss's yang.
Wailing on that saxophone
While Bruce played guitar and sang.

Handling that golden horn
With his enormous, but so agile hands
As Springsteen told the 10th Avenue tale
Of when the Big Man joined the band.

Clarence blew notes that sounded like release.
Like escaping from a place you didn't want to be.
They were the sound of hitting the road and going places.
The sound of leaving it all behind and being free.

Together he and Bruce took us places.
Down Thunder Road to Jungle Land
Reliving all their Glory Days
He was Born to Run with the rest of the E-Street band.

He was the last great sax man of the rock era
Which really is a bloody shame.
Then again, no one was ever going to do it better than him.
To even try would have been in vain.

So, farewell to New Jersey's "Minister of Soul".
He played with power, control and class.
And the only thing that blows harder
Is the fact that now he's passed.


June 1st City of Brown Deer
Police responded to an incident at Brown Deer Middle School where a girl left a classroom with a plastic bag holding a dead frog.

June 15th City of Appleton
Police were called to the Taco Bell at the intersection of Richmond Street where a man suspected to be drunk was passed out behind the wheel of his running vehicle in the drive-through lane. When police finally got the man to wake up by knocking on his window, he turned up the volume on his car stereo and started bobbing his head to the music while ignoring officers. During the incident, the man repeatedly referred to a female officer as "baby" and "honey". When the officer asked the man to submit to field sobriety tests he replied, "C'mon, we're not all stupid here. Do you even need to do these on me? Serious. C'mon."

June 8th City of Oak Creek

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week...Jonathan and Jared Pippert, the 32 and 27-year-old Sheboygan brothers who live with their mother and were charged Monday with disorderly conduct for fighting over a bottle of shampoo.


For letting a little shampoo get them worked into a lather.

For getting into a physical altercation that left them both black and Selsen blue.

And, for in a week with many solid Weenie candidates, engaging in behavior that put them Head and Shoulders above the rest.

We are proud to name Jonathan and Jared Pippert, the adult Sheboygan brothers who were arrested after getting in a fight over a bottle of shampoo as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIES OF THE WEEK!


Yesterday, the Packers finally got their SUper Bowl rings.

And here are some factoids about all the symbolism and what-have-you involved in the ring.

* The 'G' logo in the middle of the ring includes 13 diamonds, one for each of the Packers championships.
* Football-shaped diamonds dot the corner of the top of the rings, representing the 4 Super Bowl titles.
* A total of 92 diamonds surround the crest, representing the 92 years that the franchise has existed.
* On the inside of the ring, the scores of all the Packers playoff wins are included, as well as the logos of the opponents (congratulations, Eagles fans, you're on a Super Bowl ring!).
* Also on the inside is a '1' alongside the words "Mind, Goal, Purpose and Heart", a sort of mantra that the Packers used on their way to the title.
* One side features the Lombardi trophy and the player's name a number, with the number encircled as it was on the Packers throwback jerseys this year. On the other side is a rather exquisitely crafted likeness of Lambeau Field.

As for size and gaudiness, the ring checks in with 3.35 total carats of diamonds, falling just behind the 3.61 carats the Steelers crammed onto their rings for winning Super Bowl XLIII. Comparing it to other recent champions, the Saints got 2.2 carats on their XLIV rings, and the Giants, comparatively tasteful and restrained, went with 1.5 carats after XLII.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenies of the Week...a group of anti-Walker protesters who, this Wednesday, crossed the line by disrupting a Special Olympics ceremony in Madison that the Governor was part of, while dressed as zombies to make the point that...well, who the hell knows what kind of point they were trying to make. They were dressed as zombies and disrupted a ceremony for Special Olympians!


For dressing as zombies who are known to always be looking for "Brains, brains, BRAINS!" when admittedly, they clearly are in need some.

For acting like they are the walking dead when evidently, they're only really dead from the neck up.

And for showing that the only thing more horrific than their zombie make their choice of time and place to protest.

We are proud to name the anti-Walker protesters who disrupted a Special Olympics ceremony this week in Madison as our Rick and Len Show...Weenies of the Week!

Well, Congressman Anthony Wiener finally admitted the the crotch shot he sent to some woman on Twitter was, in fact, his. This after a week long "investigation" by Wiener to find out if the crotch in the picture was his. As suspicious as that sounds, you have to understand that it was very hard, er, difficult for him to recognize his junk without his testicles which were removed when he joined the Democratic party.

The whole story has made me realize that with all wieners looking like


10. Dress it up in a nice jaunty hat.

9. Paint it red and white to look more patriotic when paired with your blue balls.

8. Let your cats use it as a scratching post.

7. Get one of them big white birds like Beretta and let him perch on it.

6. Draw a face on it which will make it both easier to identify and put on delightful puppet shows.

5. Attach a white flag to it. This will not only make it easier for you to identify. It will also make you look French.

4. You can keep the purple helmet, but have the number 4 removed to clear up any confusion.

3. Hang a white cane and tin cup from it after putting a patch over it's one eye.
2. Tie a string around it which will also serve a subtle reminder to "Hey, don't take picture of this and Tweet it to impressionable girls".

1. Slather it in mustard and put it in a bun which while making it easier to identify will also make it riskier to attend baseball games and Ricky Martin barbecues.

Would it kill you to go see Doug Mellard this week at the Skyline Cafe? I suppose there's always a chance but you won't know until you go. And who wants to live with that hanging over their heads?

And you think you've had some bad Valentine's Days? We'll see if Doug can bring himself to tell us about his worst. Trust me. Doug's story is pretty good (unless it happened to you, then it's pretty bad!)

Or check out Doug Mellard Friday or Saturday night. It's still pretty damn cheap and he's pretty damn funny.

A new paper by Brown University Department of History researchers attempts to explain why The Viking's disappeared. They claim it was a result of climate change. We have our own ideas...ten to be exact.


10. Tribal council failed to approve bonding referendum to build them a new coliseum even after the old one was damaged by heavy snow as a punishment from the gods.

9. One of their elders was accused of sending etchings of his horn to unknowing maiden.

8. Many lost interest in raping and plundering after no longer being allowed to bring in out-of-state talent for their debauched longboat parties.

7. Incompetent guidance from their leader Brad the Bald.

6. Despite coming close on several occasions, could never pillage the big one.

5. Under-utilized their greatest warrior Adrian the Fast while relying too heavily on aging Brett Graybeard.

4. Left longtime ice covered homeland for warmer Valhalla like land called Los Angeles.

3. Spent too much time sacking port cities of the North Atlantic instead of opposing quarterbacks.

2. Same reason all the other barbarian tribes vanished...couldn’t reach Collective Pillaging Agreement.

1. Could no longer stand being viciously plundered twice a year by superior tribe just 275 miles to their east.


You have only until 9:50 am today (Wednesday) to make a bid on a foursome at the Fore the Kids golf outing for the Max McGee Juvenile Diabetes Foundation at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin.
