Let's find out if you've -- anything wrong so far for that we go to TVs and Levy.
Start at a much intersect appoint people to a comedy music album it's called it's okay to do stuff Frankie we put that up we have recovered.
It's a parity slash tribute to -- thomas' classic free to be you and me which if you grew up.
At a certain age you know visually -- -- yeah yeah.
I always forget about colon and writer rob cut -- because people like Andy Richter Fred Willard Megan Amram.
A -- challenging we've been Lizzy Caplan many more -- only for what should I choose all the proceeds go to saint Jude's children's research hospital.
-- -- I -- you know they have that -- so that's good I'm gonna get in anyway but you know -- to -- if all goes to charities and overnight in the by its really -- great time.
America ranks sixteenth on the list of best country to be born in these days -- easier to study the racist.
-- -- in fact we should note that Nigeria was ranked dead last.
Ran out and Kenya came in second worst which I guess means a lot's changed there since 1961.
-- comes up but demographic can of worms that he gives it the opposite Nationalists knuckle heads the opportunity beaches and the -- and all that stuff.
That's -- happiness is relative right isn't it that they want it.
I said yeah -- had a couple that we are the only country should be allowed to be our -- like I don't like it -- other countries are not do that.
Right I -- that's just wrong USA all the -- -- counselors were talking on -- wanted them.
Happiness is relevant unless you're starving and a warlord is.
I -- attack.
Happy and you can make some things that are absolutely unhappy if any that rove and plumbing -- probably didn't like you -- grow you know under three you're good if I go although they had the machete to their -- they said no no I'm happy I'm happy -- -- can -- -- -- a horrible time.
Not PAB to the point that America ranked so low because of all the debt racked up by baby boomers you said.
If only we saw this debt coming and maybe would have done something to rein it in -- I think we did see it coming and we just didn't do anything.
Yeah I I was being sarcastic yeah let us.
Maybe that's not gonna -- I didn't -- -- yeah.
Anthony and Tom I I think what -- you might have Bernard much turner.
Either way I was personally offended by the Australia -- Oh yeah yeah a little us to imagine what -- you personally because Australia is a great nation which I might add -- probably the best and smartest businessmen in the world.
I did -- yes.
-- you know our best Russia.
And Russia's number 72 on the list right next to Syria and way below Cuba which -- that might explain the exit is of strippers.
From Russia and you get decent -- about Miliband published over this other kind of quality you know -- -- states.
In my I'm -- old Soviet Union I don't think book which demeans what you think it means a I I I'm I'm aware that it doesn't matter.
I -- the head again.
School punishment goes wrong Bernard -- what's next are we gonna make the students make out.
Jack do you think I just think that hand holding punishment I guess is bad because the students were calling -- handled -- gay.
So don't make the students who called the -- hold hands through it did it's that dual teachable moment that's their could be their punishment yes flipped I get up I'm shocked that -- -- students themselves would.
Resort to this -- wolf he's homophobic tendencies -- again we were told.
That that young people involved with these -- and that's why did you and we were we gonna allow gays in the military isn't going to be okay.
-- I hope I hope it turns out to be okay but based on this study it's not looking good.
It's verge of taking this study -- about making it about gays in the military.
I said what I -- don't say anything that was incorrect fifteen mile from the -- that I report you decide.
Yeah it's I'll just -- asked.
I think what what happened -- you connected the dots and somehow got a gay guy whereas I connected the dots and it was like a Picasso paint.
Whenever I connect the dots I get a gay -- you can couldn't.
Those aren't gods -- -- Equities that he once got caught smoking in high school in the gym teacher punched you in the stomach.
Where did you go to school.
-- -- -- high school and I don't what what did you really can't.
-- and he was -- -- -- -- -- actually got fired.
Because of that was telling disciplined the kids.
He wouldn't report that it would take into the office he would punch them.
And then it was all square like all right your your -- my dad taught there for thirty years.
A -- and -- I don't know I'm not -- -- no -- not him but yet.
It will -- -- of old.
To come home -- -- -- his name is still EB.
-- -- I've probably had a smoking area high school it was called the pit spot yet met him and the -- it's not they're not actually gone back there and based shortly after I left -- -- -- the bench I was the end right edge I was the end of the smoking area -- I didn't smoke -- but yeah I would imagine the pin is long gone from my school was well yes.
How about -- so all punishment in schools you just you you have to you have to work.
I do you know what it but right suspension obviously is bad that's bad but -- -- school.
Yeah a little nobody wants to do extra work -- -- modern -- I in this thing that always bothered me about the fighting was no matter what both kids get punished right.
He started it was never an excuse for now we're in the era of instant replay everyone has it on their cell phones and find out who started it and stop this punishing everybody -- -- -- very -- you know you don't count which he can people not to fight back.
Exactly and that's bad exactly and when you -- recorded on your phone to determine the damn things nightly news I don't tired he is confident guy portrait view of these great fights we'll ask.
-- -- -- stop locking down your YouTube account and yet make them public yes.
Anger management course for NFL fans.
PAB to this course sounds ridiculous that the fans already know they're not supposed to do things like pour beer over that of a guy wearing opposing player's Jersey.
But there needs you yourself said police statistics show that it works in fact they say that nearly a thousand -- -- the course and not a single one of them has been ejected from a subsequent game.
-- -- -- it might -- speech that they are motivated by not wanting to be injected or banned from the stadium.
That's what might be mr.
-- rather then all I didn't know was wrong before and now that -- -- you'll never act up again right yeah I thought enough airport.
Yeah good point.
Tommy said bring your car formats into the stadium -- you can still keep your seat warm.
Yes you just buying C commissioners on the extent I don't look this is me.
I'd like things that do you must I don't really you want to put -- -- back in your car after god knows what has been spilled all over them in the stadium.
You just keep -- -- you just keep -- -- -- -- under there under the -- your pants there they're fine but I don't carry Linux the thing that's why you know they sell those things he puts you put around your neck in the airport model like that I -- a lot of sweater wrapped around and who is a very nice manner and.
It's always Catholic -- Although Tom I'm sure you're aware that stadium is an acceptable plural for stadium in English.
Is it acceptable yes it well it was not it was not in my high school.
Well it is these days well you can put your cigarettes -- get off the bench it's a statement.
If the sticky floor boards and I think that's significant that columnists get savaged for writing.
Column saying NFL quarterback shouldn't have tattoos.
Tom yes we think -- -- I wrote it is racist.
He himself wrote of his column to -- who ended up having to address this yet so you wrote quote.
It didn't occur to me that admitting I'm not a fan of body art would be admitting I don't like African Americans.
If they were old enough to read my two adopted African American daughters would certainly be disappointed to find out on a racist.
Using the old -- -- Israel Donna and I know that -- out -- I is that if he's definitely a hot cup.
A Bernard I do think I think -- at least point.
It is that.
Generally speaking there.
And I can you kind of hinted that the team's quarterback is sort of the face of the organization which is what what he is taking saying makes quarterbacks different from.
A -- -- -- wide receiver or lineman Fred did the officers and the other guys are enlisted men and as such let it be you know supporting role what me rusty anchor.
But also from beyond beyond just -- that sort of -- right -- it's also that quarterbacks tend to get you know they get the commercials they get as you point out it was so important with the managed to get the endorsements.
So they're representing their team out there and really is just saying hey they shouldn't look like that which I mean look you've.
It's easy to argue against but I think that's just -- and you know that there -- there's still a bunch of used up what happens just as.
Relax and take it easy again you know and today we made Afghanistan -- -- you don't relax take it easy and I digress have a beer and end and then.
-- pay attention -- and just don't pored over over a fan who's wearing an opposing.
I shudder to imagine -- -- guy at a hearing just this thread but you can behalf blow that's my hope -- by the way have a beer and don't pay attention.
-- -- perhaps I've worked out really well for you.
Actually had amazing you know miraculously.
I just -- -- -- point one thing out there are some people including Colin Catholics parents have said it sounded like -- was.
We'll -- are willing to try to make it sound like -- and it was a fog organics or something in fact he specifically said in the article that CK quote.
-- -- doesn't fit what he calls the stereotype he says quote by all accounts he's a polite hardworking humble guy who has never been to prison.
-- I do think history pointed out.
I did I'd tell these two stories together -- -- three questions yeah about fifty why are there any openly gay athletes in professional team sports.
Why did you know the answer I don't social no I don't actually I don't because I just don't.
The culture of the locker room you don't you mean it you study say that that culture does exist among young people -- and I'm saying it absolutely exists among athletes up stunt double I didn't know that RBC I'm just looking for answers I wanted to.
You need to notify -- -- -- -- -- doing that absolutely are sure someday there will be openly gay athletes.
Shouldn't do now what what's what's that you say that.
Professor of football is a homophobic sport we have a went to all the folks in the yet.
I'm not saying that I'm saying I'm assuming that the players themselves who -- gay who don't wanna come out are sort of feel like yeah.
Well that's that's city and -- old and I television military by the -- don't -- -- rob who I was asking questions sure.
You know you know you -- -- account.
-- some tough questions so you're you're curious the idea yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- Thank you any.
