A Minor Correction

It was announced this morning that Imus made the coveted Cracked magazine list of the Top 25 Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians. (Incidentally, Cracked plagiarized this article from this blog.)


Cracked describes him as "the Disc jockey and humorist whose comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team in 2007 led to the name "Imus" being mentioned on a college campus for the first time in 35 years."


A minor correction: I started listening to Imus about a year before he got fired, and I told a few of my friends about him shortly afterwards. And I've always lived on-campus...so, therefore, Imus hadn't been mentioned on a college campus in thirty-four years. I hope that Cracked prints a retraction.


In closing, here's a picture from the aforementioned Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians blog of a man who should have been #1 on the list:

Soon, your blog will be required reading on College campus'!

That guy has the kind of hair day that Imus had when he appeared on the Al Sharpton Show back in April!

If you can dig up some old tape of Imus when he was a VH1 host...stuff he used to say in between videos was hilarious...talkin' about the performers!

Like Sade.."She do look good in those tight jeans?..

and, David Crosby used to get busted pretty regularly and Imus used to shake his head..."Every time the cops show up, there's Crosby with a gun and a bag of dope"...

Warner Wolf was outrageously funny today!

Craig Crawford, great as usual...Russert was very good...

Was an AWESOME show today!

Imus said 'bitch' and no one censored him!...lol

You know Imus is doing well when the only peeps posting on Imus blogs are the handful of regulars who ALWAYS post...


...like me!

I record the radio feed every morning and listen to it during the day when I get a chance - So people looked at me funny on the subway when I bursted out laughing at the Publishers' Clearing House comment: because there's a new republican winner each week!

I hope Larry Kenny is back on soon at least his voice, I love his Jack Nicholson immitation.

Mike,
Yeah, you never know when one of those laugh-out-loud moments are gonna pop up on Imus in the Morning...I record the show, also.

and, laree, YES, it would be great to hear from Larry..wonder where he is?

Al - I SO want to dig up some VH1 footage!!! LOL!! See, if video of that doesn't get released somewhere on the Internets, then Youtube has officially invalidated its reason for existing. :-)

And I heard the uncensored "bitch" comment...which was in the middle of a REALLY funny Warner Wolf segment. Warner was really cracking me up today - he was awesome. He always "brings it" to the show.

Laree, I adore Larry too - and I love his Nicholson.

Charles needs to get himself in writing gear and create some stuff for Larry...and SOON.

Mike - I'm like you - I listen to a recording of the show later in the day. I don't get up at the crack of dawn either, so I always end up listening to it during the evening, or late at night when I'm trying to work.

And I laughed at the "Publishers Clearinghouse" thing too. I love the little throwaway lines that make you laugh out loud. There were many of those this morning. :-)

I'm so glad to have found some fellow Imus fans! Can you tell me how you record the radio feed and then listen to it? I'm thinking this might involve an MP3 player which I can have one of my kids help me with.
