We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...Joseph Sloma of Denmark, a former charter boat captain, who this week was sentenced after having been found guilty of blowing up several other charter fishing boats in Kewaunee's Salmon Harbor Marina in 2009. The only reasons Sloma ever gave to investigators for his actions was the fact that he didn't like some of the charter boat captains who owned the boats and "peer pressure".

So,

For blowing up boats which is only acceptable behavior when it comes to inflatable dinghies.

For thinking he could destroy fishing boats and not be found gill-ty. (I am sooooo ASHAMED!)

For not understanding that if everybody in Wisconsin just blew up whatever they didn't like, Soldier Field would be nothing but a smoking crater and a pile of ash.

We are proud to name Joseph Sloma, the Brown County charter fishing boat captain who blew up his competition's boats as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

We bid farewell today to The Big Man.
The yin to The Boss's yang.
Wailing on that saxophone
While Bruce played guitar and sang.

Handling that golden horn
With his enormous, but so agile hands
As Springsteen told the 10th Avenue tale
Of when the Big Man joined the band.

Clarence blew notes that sounded like release.
Like escaping from a place you didn't want to be.
They were the sound of hitting the road and going places.
The sound of leaving it all behind and being free.

Together he and Bruce took us places.
Down Thunder Road to Jungle Land
Reliving all their Glory Days
He was Born to Run with the rest of the E-Street band.

He was the last great sax man of the rock era
Which really is a bloody shame.
Then again, no one was ever going to do it better than him.
To even try would have been in vain.

So, farewell to New Jersey's "Minister of Soul".
He played with power, control and class.
And the only thing that blows harder
Is the fact that now he's passed.

June 1st City of Brown Deer
Police responded to an incident at Brown Deer Middle School where a girl left a classroom with a plastic bag holding a dead frog. Her teacher told her she could not take the frog and must return to class. The girl kept walking saying the frog was hers because she paid for it. An officer at the scene and told the girl if she left school she would be arrested. The girl left and was arrested.

June 15th City of Appleton
Police were called to the Taco Bell at the intersection of Richmond Street where a man suspected to be drunk was passed out behind the wheel of his running vehicle in the drive-through lane. When police finally got the man to wake up by knocking on his window, he turned up the volume on his car stereo and started bobbing his head to the music while ignoring officers. During the incident, the man repeatedly referred to a female officer as "baby" and "honey". When the officer asked the man to submit to field sobriety tests he replied, "C'mon, we're not all stupid here. Do you even need to do these on me? Serious. C'mon."

June 8th City of Oak Creek
A 48-year-old woman was arrested for drunken driving after she was seen getting out of her car and pooping in the bushes outside of Fleet Farm.

June 10th City of Wisconsin Rapids
Police received a report that a man on Pepper Avenue threw a chair in the garbage!

Clarence Clemons--the Big Man with the big horn-- died today of complications from a stroke he suffered last weekend, said Bruce Springsteen's spokeswoman. He was 69 years old.

Here's a clip of Clarence with the E-Street Band in London in 2009, playing Jungleland, which has the greatest sax solo in rock history, played the way only Clarence could play it.

Yesterday, the Packers finally got their SUper Bowl rings.

And here are some factoids about all the symbolism and what-have-you involved in the ring.

* The 'G' logo in the middle of the ring includes 13 diamonds, one for each of the Packers championships.
* Football-shaped diamonds dot the corner of the top of the rings, representing the 4 Super Bowl titles.
* A total of 92 diamonds surround the crest, representing the 92 years that the franchise has existed.
* On the inside of the ring, the scores of all the Packers playoff wins are included, as well as the logos of the opponents (congratulations, Eagles fans, you're on a Super Bowl ring!).
* Also on the inside is a '1' alongside the words "Mind, Goal, Purpose and Heart", a sort of mantra that the Packers used on their way to the title.
* One side features the Lombardi trophy and the player's name a number, with the number encircled as it was on the Packers throwback jerseys this year. On the other side is a rather exquisitely crafted likeness of Lambeau Field.

As for size and gaudiness, the ring checks in with 3.35 total carats of diamonds, falling just behind the 3.61 carats the Steelers crammed onto their rings for winning Super Bowl XLIII. Comparing it to other recent champions, the Saints got 2.2 carats on their XLIV rings, and the Giants, comparatively tasteful and restrained, went with 1.5 carats after XLII.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week...Jonathan and Jared Pippert, the 32 and 27-year-old Sheboygan brothers who live with their mother and were charged Monday with disorderly conduct for fighting over a bottle of shampoo.

So,

For letting a little shampoo get them worked into a lather.

For getting into a physical altercation that left them both black and Selsen blue.

And, for in a week with many solid Weenie candidates, engaging in behavior that put them Head and Shoulders above the rest.

Would it kill you to go see Doug Mellard this week at the Skyline Cafe? I suppose there's always a chance but you won't know until you go. And who wants to live with that hanging over their heads?

And you think you've had some bad Valentine's Days? We'll see if Doug can bring himself to tell us about his worst. Trust me. Doug's story is pretty good (unless it happened to you, then it's pretty bad!)

TONIGHT is WAPL Night at Skyline with 2 for 1 admission to see Doug Mellard. You can make reservations by calling 920-734-JOKE or on-line. To get the 2 for 1 deal, you should mention it's WAPL Night on the phone or enter WAPL where it says "coupon" on the check-out page when ordering tickets here at the new Skyline website.

Or check out Doug Mellard Friday or Saturday night. It's still pretty damn cheap and he's pretty damn funny.

A new paper by Brown University Department of History researchers attempts to explain why The Viking's disappeared. They claim it was a result of climate change. We have our own ideas...ten to be exact.

THE TOP TEN REASONS THE VIKINGS DISAPPEARED

10. Tribal council failed to approve bonding referendum to build them a new coliseum even after the old one was damaged by heavy snow as a punishment from the gods.

9. One of their elders was accused of sending etchings of his horn to unknowing maiden.

8. Many lost interest in raping and plundering after no longer being allowed to bring in out-of-state talent for their debauched longboat parties.

7. Incompetent guidance from their leader Brad the Bald.

6. Despite coming close on several occasions, could never pillage the big one.

5. Under-utilized their greatest warrior Adrian the Fast while relying too heavily on aging Brett Graybeard.

4. Left longtime ice covered homeland for warmer Valhalla like land called Los Angeles.

3. Spent too much time sacking port cities of the North Atlantic instead of opposing quarterbacks.

2. Same reason all the other barbarian tribes vanished...couldn’t reach Collective Pillaging Agreement.

1. Could no longer stand being viciously plundered twice a year by superior tribe just 275 miles to their east.
