We did something a little different with the Podcast this week. We spend a lot of time talking about the Radio Industry on our show, simply because I’m a fan of radio. Part of that is the radio industry is cutthroat and stupid. Cody Hudson was a morning show jock at KISS 103 in Emporia and Tuesday, he was let go from the station.
We turned over our Rambling Morons podcast to his fans.
Thanks for making this a very special show for a very special radio personality!
- 00:01 – We were joined by Cody Hudson who won a bet with his Mom on who would say the “F” word first. In the first 30 seconds. So, EXTRA Red Lobster tonight.
- 00:02 – Fuck you, corporate America, Red Lobster and Olive Garden. We have your number.
- 00:03 – The first offer to take out my penis. It won’t be the last.
- 00:04 – SOPA Update. The Internet > Everything
- 00:06 – Laurie’s Soy Sauced Laptop Update
- 00:09 – My “buddy” Troy crashed 610 Sports last week, so I crashed ESPN2
- 00:16 – New Royals Slogans – “Our Time”
- 00:20 – Fake Ned Minute – “Our Time”
- 00:22 – Laurie Jenn Minute – Peace, Love and Slavery
- 00:24 – Our interview with Cody Hudson. Epic doesn’t begin to describe it. Listen to the whole 45 minutes. You’ll thank me for it. We interlace the interview with your voicemails you left us telling us how much he’ll be missed on the Emporia airwaves. And I think there might’ve just been a crank call for a gardening company in there somewhere.
- P.S. It’s entirely likely that his new podcast will kick my podcast’s ass. But I’m okay with this. This guy is funny.
- No. Seriously, just listen to the whole thing. This guy is hilarious. And he comes with a posse. So that’s nothing to be trifled with.
With the Chiefs WAY out of the playoffs and the Royals still 10 weeks away from sniffing anything real, what’s there left to do? That’s right, beat the CRAP out of your college rivals…
I contribute a weekly column to the Platte County Landmark under the “Rambling Moron” name. It’s a great Northland Newspaper and well worth a subscription. The following is an early edition of my article which will appear in the 1/5/12 edition – printed with permission.
The City of Parkville passed what could be the greatest ordinance in the history of city governments… ANYWHERE.
Starting on March 31, 2012 you will be able to drive golf karts on city streets in Parkville. This means, that for a $50 registration fee, you can take your golf kart from Hy-Vee on 64th street all the way to English Landing. Granted, it might take you a week and a half.
Life is supposed to be fun. Living in a town such as Parkville needs to be more enjoyable – why not mix in a golf kart? Who doesn’t like driving around in a golf kart?
I applaud the Parkville Aldermen for this out-of-the-box thinking and could suggest a few more ordinances to help with making Parkville one of the more progressive cities in the Midwest:
- Mayoral decree that it’s Golf Kart, not Golf Cart. Misspellings will result in a $500 fine and possible imprisonment.
- If you’re going to add golf karts to public streets, the logical extension of this is to allow golf kart girls. Let’s say you’re driving your golf kart from Riss Lake over to All-Star Pizza and you’re like, “I’m awfully thirsty and could use a $3 bag of Doritos.” And, BOOM! Up drives the golf kart girl who sells you a $5 Bud Light. Mmmm. Refreshing!
- Since Noland Road is commonly referred to as “The Miracle Mile” where you can buy just about every make and model of cars, how about we make a stretch of River Road the “Mildly Amazing Mile” where you can buy every model of golf karts, segueways and mopeds.
- Wyandotte County in Kansas, by all accounts, was saved by the construction of the Kansas Speedway. I nominate English Landing Park (when it’s not underwater) as the future home for the Parkville Kartway – home to the National Golf Kart Racing Association circuit. (It’s a real thing, Google it.) Imagine Golf Karts from all over converging on our little Parkville to make outstanding YouTube videos for decades to come.
- The $50 fee would be waved for the best personalized golf kart license plate – can’t you just see that fella from Linden Park getting a nice surprise that his “FORE PLAY” or “TO 19TH” tag was given a break.
- The golf kart phenomenon should be a big hit with Park University. That campus is deceptively big and I know that when I was in college, being able to sleep in that extra five minutes would’ve been huge. Beware students – don’t get any ideas about using a golf kart as your DD when tipping them back at Stone Canyon – you can still get a DUI… even in a Golf Kart.
- Finally, as you know, golf karts are terribly underpowered and Parkville is extremely hilly. The city government will need to flatten out certain areas of town. I would recommend starting with 15th hole at The National #2. But that’s just because I don’t like walking up hills.
I am excited about a new Golf Kart-friendly future for Parkville. And pardon me for suggesting the town’s new slogan, but I think I’ve got it… You can’t drive to Par without Parkville.

The Kansas City Royals announced their 2012 Team Slogan “Our Time” in a recent press conference. As Rustin Dodd wrote in his article, the slogan was simpler and not in any way related to the Goonies.
Which made me wonder… which ones were rejected? Here’s a few I’m betting ended up in the Recycle Bin. But maybe a few that might catch on…
Our first one is rather self-explanitory. Probably a good move they didn’t use it. They did, however, go ahead and resign Yuni.
For our friends in Manhattan. Much like the Energy Saving mascot, this logo just didn’t stick.
The fact that this one wasn’t picked is a goddamned crime.
This one is mostly for our friends on the other side of the state… Soon, you’ll know about Hosmer and Moose and left saying…
Just added in light of the re-signing of Chris Getz…
For fans of #RadioWars between our two big Sports Radio Stations…
This is what my wife says to me every time I leave for the ballpark. It would’ve been nice to have it on a t-shirt.
So, the 2012 All-Star Game will be held here in Kansas City in July. I’m betting Chris Berman will be belting out this slogan during the Home Run Derby…
I would buy this shirt.
2012 World Series Champions… 2012 Final Four Champions…
I would also pay large sums of money for this shirt…
I would rather this shirt was sitting on the floor… under a bra…
This might be the greatest money-making slogan ever…
Kind of a self-serving logo here… have you checked out our Podcast? You should. It doesn’t suck.
I wouldn’t buy this shirt, but I would take a free one from someone who owns a T-Shirt company… anyone???
And finally, let’s hope to God we can make this shirt a best-seller in January of 2013…
