This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.
Call in Point:
(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed)
The week is almost through which means that today was all about fun with dragging when it came to our main discussion point. After all, nothing makes the week slump uplifted like some catty hilarity. So, there's a new game going around on social media (TikTok, Twitter, Facebook) that is simple in premise. He/She is a 10 but.... Obviously, this is a game that needs examples to make sense so "she is a 10 but she collects stuffed animals, she is a 10 but she's obsessed with the Kardashians, he's a 10 but he wears socks with sandals, he's a 10 but he likes the Packers." Now that the idea is cemented, let's see what Angi & Abe had to say about one another. "Abe is a 10 but enough with all the mayo. Abe is a 10 but he eats food with his shirt off." Abe only had one point to lob but as someone who has been in that direct line of fire, his point is a 100 "Angi is a 10 until she's had 2 fingers of whiskey." Before we went to the Request Line, they felt like tossing some celebrity shade into the mix. "Megan Fox is a 10 but she has a gimp thumb. Trick Daddy is a 10 but he only has one song." Starting off with Kari, we got a great one. "Her husband is a 10 but he has a voice like Conrad Cooper." He's got this amazing manly body but he sounds like a bitch basically (love you CC.) Angi added that David Beckham fits that point perfectly. A caller whose name I missed because I was posting the Facebook version of this discussion said "her husband is a 10 but he smokes on the toilet while pooping." Daniel said "his girlfriend is a 10 but she can't tie her shoes." Angi & Abe both learned to tie their shoes by doing bunny ears. John called to say "his wife is a 10 but she's too loud in the morning." Angi added that her mom was the same way but she would bang pots and pans together to wake up her mess of a daughter. Ben called to discuss a girl he knows "she is a 10 but she eats her own hair when stressed." Of course, we ended this with Abe suggesting that Angi eat her own hair because of course he did.

Other Stuff from Today's Show:
Well, we're back at that point again, Angi was out of content once more. You know how it is with her, she spends her days drunk on the couch and needs to be filled to the brim with distractions all day or else. So, with this in mind, Angi was seeking something new to indulge in and she found that in the Netflix reality show Snowflake Mountain. She was so impressed by this deep dive into trash TV that she implored (demanded) that we all start watching it. It's essentially a combination of Survivor and Florabama Shore, which speaks volumes on her taste level. If that doesn't sell it, a line actually used on the show was "I'm going to get a rash on my 'meow'" from a girl who had to wipe leaves. The premise is that these twentysomethings are home dwellers that parents have finally had enough of (makes sense) and their parents want them out. They tell them that they're going on a reality show in a tropical destination, which makes them think they're doing Love Island or one of those other trash shows. In reality, they are tossed on a deserted island with two survivalist guys and forced to make it work. If they stay the longest, they win money, which is how you get idiots to endure stuff like this. Since this is a literal island there are no toilets and so these brats are forced to dig a hole and dump buckets of their waste into it. Basically, it's the greatest thing that Angi has ever seen (clearly she's never watched Hannibal.) Abe would love to indulge in this mess but he currently has no Netflix password (his girlfriend canceled hers a while ago.) Angi offered up hers to him but he immediately dismissed it because there's a two fold problem with taking things from Angi. The first is that you will get grief from her about usage because as we've heard on air before, like her friend who uses her Hulu and Angi has dragged on air. Then of course, the bigger reason is Angi would look at what Abe watched and definitely drag him about it on air after privately judging him. I mean, she's not wrong though because sandwiched between the volleyball scene from Top Gun and Billy Bob's Poker Blog would be something like Getting Pumped with Hulk Hogan or some other such nonsense. He actually might be making the right call here and besides, he could just use my password.
Finally, since we already tackled one pointless social media thing today, why not grab onto another for fun. This one apparently began on Twitter though I've seen it on every social media platform since it blew up. It turns out that we have been using juice boxes wrong our whole lives and you need to realize that. You see, the bendy straw part of the juice isn't for above but below. That's right, you puncture the juice box and then flip the straw so the bendie part is in the drink and the straight part is in your mouth (hell yeah brother.) Abe is a fan of the bendy straw for his iced coffee and after Angi alerted him to this hack, he tried it this morning and found it to be great. Of course, there are detractors when it comes to this whole flipped idea, which is to be expected. This has to do with the "sharp" part as you're now drinking from that and it's going to be stabbing you in the mouth. The suggestion here is to snip that little jabby part but that sounds like more effort than it's worth. However, Abe did suggest you could just turn the sharp part of the straw into a toothpick. On top of all this delightful madness, Angi had a second hack for us (we're truly blessed!) This is for the neckpillow you would use on a plane. It turns out the snap goes in the back and the thick part goes in the front. Abe wasn't a fan of this tip because he feels people who use a neck pillow are "too cocky." This tip is also apparently not for Angi as she can't sleep on planes. Abe suffers the same issue but this has to do with being seated next to the sleep apnea guy. Angi also takes issue with having no way to place or prop up her legs which I guess is instrumental in allowing her to be able to nap.
Request Wars 2.0:
Champion: Abe (Streak: 2)
Angi's (repping Ralph) Song Choice: "Fat Lip" by Sum 41
Abe's (repping Vinnie) Song Choice: "Heading Out to the Highway" by Judas Priest
Smack Talk Recap:
Abe likes Angi's player Ralph but he likes Vinnie a lot more (gee, who saw that coming.) Sum 41 also happens to idolize Judas Priest so it would be a crime to vote against Abe today. Vinnie apparently is also a lot lizard who smoked grass with Rob Halford. There was a comparison in this to how Abe worked out with Hulk Hogan. Angi feigned some form of shock that every player Abe gets knows someone in the band that day (SHOCK.)
10 O'Clock Toast:
Every Man Who Has a Shoe Size Over 10. Angi spent the end part of the morning chopping it up with a man who has a size 14 shoe but baby T-Rex hands. Still though, you know what they say about big feet ... hard to buy shoes!
