We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…the unidentified Milwaukee area man who, Tuesday night, attempted to bag himself some big game. According to police, the man grabbed his gun and shot at what he believed to be the lion that has reportedly been spotted wandering the streets of Milwaukee. Unfortunately, what the man thought was a wild lion was actually somebody’s pet pit bull.

For being unable to tell a dog from a cat…or, apparently, his own ass from a hole in the ground.

For having a trigger finger that’s itchier than the balls of a guy after banging  a Kardashian.

For being afraid of somebody's pet dog and shooting it because he was afraid it was a lion making me thing the lion isn't the biggest pussy in this story.

We are proud to name the guy who shot a dog he mistook for a lion in Milwaukee as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week!

P.S. The dog is expected to recover.

CELEBRITIES WHO WANTED TO BE AT EAA

BILL CLINTON…wanted to be at the EAA…but he’s busy this week CLOSELY monitoring the hackers’ release of names of Ashley Madison clients.

ESCAPED MEXICAN DRUG LORD EL CHAPO...wanted to be at the EAA...but while tunneling out of a Mexican prison may have been difficult, it's not nearly as horrible as trying to drive highway 41 in EAA traffic.  

WILLIE NELSON…wanted to be at the EAA…until he learned that even with 10,000 airplanes on site, there are not that can get him hire than he own tour bus.

TIGER WOODS…wanted to be at the EAA…because he was hoping one of the many stunt pilots on hand could teach him how to pull his career out a nosedive.

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MARTIN O’MALLEY …wanted to be at the EAA…until he found out that even the world’s greatest assembly of aeronautic engineers couldn’t figure out a way to get his race for the presidency off the ground.  

THE LION ROAMING THE STREETS OF MILWAUKEE …wanted to be at the EAA…but unlike United and Delta, he's apparently not an air-lion.

BILL COSBY…wanted to be at the EAA since he seems like a perfect fit because usually only plane crashes leave behind as many victims as him.

DONALD TRUMP...wanted to bring his campaign to EAA...but the last thing they need at Airventure this week is something else that's going down in flames.

They've released the schedule for Mile of Music 3, August 6-9 in Appleton and I'm pretty excited. A number of the the out-of-the-area bands I enjoyed last year will be back, such as Wild Adriatic, Cereus Bright, Ruben, and SOOOO many more (together with an AMAZING assortment of local talent!) One of my faves from last year was Pop Goes the Evil from Cincinatti.

For those of you who think Mile is just folk and Americana artists, this clip of Pop Goes the Evil performing at Fox River House should change your mind. Allow me to highlight my favorite moments in the performance as the band takes the stage late Sunday morning completely wiped out, hung over, and giving it every last drop they had left!



0:44 Song starts sweetly enough despite lead singer,  Lucas, being "out of his mind" after 5 performances in 3 days and partying so hard he passed out and slept on the blacktop behind some Appleton bar the night before.

1:52 Song briefly changes tempo, becomes darker and heavier giving us a perview of things to come.

4:16 Lucas climbs on top of Todd who is shooting the video before launching into a Dick Dale-ish surf guitar open to his first solo.

6:40 Lucas launches into another guitar solo during which it appears his soul leaves his body and he is taken over by the spirit of some flailing bad ass rock demon.

7:33 Hey! It's Evan the bass player.

7:50 Jake the dummer attacking the drums like his life depends on it. As we later learn, perhaps it did.

7:56 Lucas starts playing guitar like he has flippers.

8:10 Lucas (or the bad ass rock demon controling his empty vessel) starts to wind it up and bring it home!

9:02 The bad ass demon controling the Lucas vessel briefly attempts to Chicken Dance while still playing guitar.

9:27 Jake the drummer VOMITS!

9:40 Jake finishes the last beats of the song before vomiting over the back fence...like a pro...signaling the official end of Mile of Music 2.

Can't wait for this year!  -Rick-

Today is the 46th anniversary of the first manned moon landing...or is it?

WAYS TO TELL THE MOON LANDING WAS FAKED

10. When it returned to earth, Apollo 11 odometer only had 148 miles on it.

9. If you look closely at photos of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin you’ll see they look suspiciously like the two guys in the Sonic commercials.

8. It was faked by Meg Ryan after which Rob Reiner’s mother said “I’ll have what she’s having”.

7. The bag of moon rocks they brought back all had the words “A Souvenir of Bailey's Harbor" painted on them.

6. Cheese on surface of moon was clearly still in Kraft Singles wrappers.

5. Bumper sticker on back on the LEM read my other Lunar Excursion Module is a Corvette.

4. Armstrong's footprint on lunar surface bears surprising resemblance to bigfoot's who as we all know lives in the pacific northwest and deep south...not the moon.

3. There were 200 million Americans at the time. Do you really think we picked to be one of the first two people to walk in the moon, a guy named Buzz.

2. During historic CBS broadcast of the event, every time famed news anchor Walter Cronkite said "moon landing" he used his fingers to make air quotes.

1. Neil Armstrong claims when he got off the Lunar Module, Brian Williams was there to meet him.

SURPRISES PLANNED FOR THE BRETT FAVRE PACKER HALL OF FAME INDUCTION

10. In honor of his 1999 8-8 season, the Hall of Fame is also inducting a large wad of Ray Rhodes’ chewing gum.

9. It will be revealed that the REAL reason he came out of retirement to play for the Jets and Vikings was to avoid listing to Deanna nag him about mowing the lawn. 

8. Lambeau Ring of Honor also making room for a selection of John Madden lip prints lifted from Brett’s ass.

7. Since his former coach Mike Holmgren will be unable to attend, will be replaced by Chumley the cartoon Walrus.

6. They are also retiring the number…of Brett’s pharmacist. (his private cellphone number, of course)

5. Only reason Brett agreed to return to Green Bay is the prospect of a big sweaty hug from Larry McCarren.

4. Original plan was to hold induction ceremony at other scene of Brett’s greatest most memorable accomplishments… the basement of the former Philling Station bar in downtown Appleton.

3. Brett hoping Hall of Fame induction will keep him from being remembered like a character in Brokeback Mountain, a well-meaning country boy who’s balls sometimes ended up in the wrong guy’s hands.

2. In a fitting tribute to his family, Hall of Fame exhibit will also include a selection of items shoplifted by his sister and the bathtub she made meth in.

1. When they retire Brett’s number 4, they’re planning to put the word “inches” after it.

WAYS TO STAY COOL FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AT ROCK USA

10. Accompany Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler to the festival and periodically run under the water spraying from his eyes.

9. Do what Rick does and hit on women just to get turned down cold.

8. Bring Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez, give him a bat and let him fan the crowd the way he’s been fanning at the plate a lot of the season.

7. Hang out with Jackyl’s Jesse James Dupree because, Ahhh he’s pretty cool.

6. Wear a Minnesota Vikings jersey and bask in the cold reception you get from the crowd.

5. While just drinking ice cold beer will not keep you hydrated, it can be extremely refreshing to periodically dip your balls in it.

4. Come by the WAPL Beach House and get a cold shoulder from our own Ross Maxwell.

3. Get an icy stare from Don Dokken by asking for one of his candy bars. Don't ask. You don't want to know. But trust us!

2. If you are a woman, offer to have sex with Rick and just the thought of it will make you downright frigid.

1. Eating popsicles can help lower your body temperature. Even more so if you consume them in suppository form. Beware the Rocket pops.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week… Tyler Zastrow, a 19-year-old Sheboygan man who is facing criminal charges for allegedly assaulting a park ranger at Kohler Andre State Park Saturday. The altercation reportedly began when the ranger responded to reports that Zastrow was hiding in the woods and jumping out to scare unsuspecting women on their way to the bathroom. When the ranger confronted him, Zastrow allegedly began wrestling, kicking and punching him. After being subdued with pepper spray, Zastrow reportedly apologized for hitting the ranger and asked to not be arrested because “it would screw up his ‘pre-law’ degree.”

So,

Roughing up the ranger...which sounds like a euphemism for masturbation which is fitting since he behaved like a jerk off.

For not realizing that nobody beats the park ranger….unless, of course, you’re “smarter than the average bear”. (and he clearly is not “smarter than the average bear”.)

For thinking he still has a shot at becoming a lawyer despite being a complete douchebag…which, now that I think of it, is actually a pretty good combination.

We are proud to name Tyler Zastrow of Sheboygan as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week.

We narrowly avoided the planet being sucked into a blackhole of douchebaggery last night as for Cowboy Deion Sanders faced off against Justin Bieber on Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle. How loathesome a creature is Justin Bieber that he had me pulling for "Primetime"? (Truth be told, I think I was praying harder for a theater fire!)

So what was more uncomfortable? Watching Neon Deion writhe around the floor in a wedding dress as Madonna or having Beiber boarding the Crazy Train?

SURPRISES IN THE WISCONSIN BUDGET

10. The governor will be forced to reduce number of aids at his office in Madison in order to maintain full time staffs for his governor's offices in Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Sioux City.

9. Well paid tenured University of Wisconsin professors will be replaced by “teachers” whose main qualifications are having scored above average on several really tough Buzzfeed quizzes. 

8. Due to cuts in D.O.T. equipment budget, multiple state highway workers will all have to start huddling together to lean on the same shovel.

7. Will implement controversial Right to Birthday law which will save taxpayer money by making it illegal to celebrate your birthday unless you make at least $200,000 year.

6. Will replace many of states’ K-12 schools with much cheaper K9 schools because dogs are easier to teach than children.

5. To show support for state industry, budget includes provision that allows lockdown of the state capitol building for bomb scares only if the explosive device was manufactured in Wisconsin.

4. There is no number 4. New state budget eliminated 10% of funding for government supported development of top ten lists.

3. As a cost saving measure, State Senator Frank Lasee's pay was cut so much he can no longer afford to keep NOT living in the home he doesn’t really live in in his district. 

2. Instead of allowing former A village administrator from places like Hortonville and a former alderman from places like Sheboygan to individually expense their child porn, they’ll all be required to just have a group movie night at the home of Jared from Subway. 

1. Money usually spent on “railroad crossing” and “deer crossing” signs for state highways will be used to pay for “eye crossing” signs for governor’s office.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...that jackass in everybody's neighborhood who, starting about a week before the 4th, already lights off fireworks at somewhere between midnight and 3 am with most civilized people are TRYING (and I think the operative word here is TRYING) to sleep. For me, it was a jag off with what sounded like a couple of M-80's at 1:40 this morning  interrupting a dream involving me, 50 gallons of chocolate pudding and the entire cast of female dancers from the 1980's TV show Solid Gold. Gaaaahhh!!!!

So,

For lighting things that have even ever shorter fuse than Lewis Black.

For demonstrating to the world that the only thing he can bang late at night is a pack of Black Cat's finest.

For popping days before the 4th which is just as prematurely as I'm sure he would if the actually did have sex.

We are proud to name that jack wagon in my (and everybody’s) neighborhood who thinks it’s funny to light off firecrackers in the middle of the night DAYS BEFORE the 4th as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

With the holiday weekend almost upon us, ask yourself, how dirty is my grill? A study shows that most grills have far more bacteria than your toilet seat. Here's the signs to look for that your grill might be unclean!

If it has more burnt residue than Willie Nelson’s bong…your grill might be unclean.

If it has more chunks of decades old food than ZZ Top’s beards…your grill might be unclean.

If it’s had more questionable meat on it than Jenna Jameson’s chin …your grill might be unclean.   

If it’s been so long since it’s seen soap and water it’s been made an honorary citizen of Menasha…your grill might be unclean.

If it’s burned people more times than Jordy Nelson facing the Bear’s secondary…your grill might be unclean.

If you struggle with dyslexia…your girl might be unclean.

If every time you eat food cooked on it, you vomit as much as you did watching Kanye sing Bohemian Rhapsody this weekend.

If it’s been heated up more times than a Kardashian sister in the locker room of the NBA All Star game…your grill might be unclean.

If it’s dustier than my penis or stickier than my balls on a muggy august afternoon…your grill might be unclean.

If it’s been lit up more times than Tommy Thompson at a weeklong Green Bay Super Bowl celebration…your grill might be unclean.

If you're L'il Wayne and you don't brush your teeth...your grill might be unclean.

If it has more ashes in it than the Kennedy Family urn…your grill is definitely unclean.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show WEENIE OF THE WEEK…Greg Bell… who after today deserts his post as our general manager here at WAPL and as Vice President of Broadcast operations for our parent company Woodward Communications. Greg is retiring after working here…being employed here since 1983?

So,

For being our fearless leader here at WAPL, which is sort of like being the driver of a short bus with no brakes that's on fire careening down a mountain toward a cliff into a pool of sharks with frickin' lasers.

For spending more years working with Woodward than even Bernstein.

For being the guy responsible for hiring me here at WAPL in 2003…after being the guy who fired me here at WAPL in 2002…proving everyone is entitled to ONE mistake and his was clearly the more recent of the two. (compounded by the fact that he brought Len back, too.)

We are PROUD to name our retiring General Manager and V.P. of Broadcasting... Greg Bell as this week’s Rick and Len Show WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

Thanks for everything! Enjoy your retirement. You've earned it!

A tip of the hat to Jeannette Merten of the Oshkosh Northwestern for this photo from Country USA. Merten clearly deserves a Pulitzer for news photography for so beautifully capturing on film EXACTLY what my  image of the festival has always been in my nightmares. Additionally, Merten deserves a second Pulitzer for nature photography for also capturing on film the likeness of the elusive male camel toe in it's natural environment.

I golf lots but because of my job in media and particularly with the radio powerhouse which is 105-7 WAPL, I get to experience some of the best golf in the world. I was invited to Erin Hills Golf Course yesterday for a press conference about the 2017 men's U.S. Open which Erin Hills will host and, of course, it included an opportunity to play the course.
This is a world class track which is ranked at the eighth best public course anywhere. It is going to provide some of the best spectating for a major tournament ever because the course is located among the natural eskars of the Kettle Moraine area of Wisconsin. That means lots of ridges, hills and other awesome vantage points from which to watch the best players in the world compete for the title.
I played from the green (middle) tees which still measure a healthy 6700 yards. The pros will play tees hwich can stretch it to 8200-plus. That's insane. The 18th hole can be played at close to 700 yards!
We'll keep you up to date on when tickets go on sale because I don't want you to miss this chance to see history in the making. The 2017 OPen will mark the first time this tournament will be played in Wisconsin.
It's going to be epic.
I'd like to thank the USGA and everyone at Erin Hills for a special day...and thanks as well to my caddy, Cam, who earned his keep tracking down my many errant shots.
