Money magazine has chosen Appleton as one on the 100 best places to live in the U.S.


10. Downtown just as nice as Fond du Lac with only half as many urine puddles.

9. When the wind blows from the north, the stank from Menasha is almost completely covered by the rotten eggs and monkey ass smell from Kaukauna.

8. If you’re a business owner and have a problem you can contact city officials and the sound of them laughing at you is sure to bring joy to others.

7. Good jobs available for the unskilled and uneducated as long as you’re not too embarrassed to work for the Post Crescent.

6. Home of beautiful public art like the enormous penis-shaped sculpture at the north end of the Skyline bridge which artistically symbolizes that shafting you’re going to get when you pay your property taxes.

5. Conveniently located close enough to Sheboygan that no matter what we do, it’s not going to seem that weird by comparison.

4. Proactive city government instituted legislation designed to cover sidewalks outside bars with cigarette butts 5 years before the rest of the state.

3. Police are less likely than the ones in Green Bay to shoot you in cold blood.

2. With a Christmas parade in November, Octoberfest in September, trick or treating on October 28th and Independence Day fireworks on July 3rd, everyday is a holiday, except the days of the actual holidays.

1. City parking meters collect all change that would otherwise go to panhandling hobos.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...Bryce Hinkel who was charged Wednesday in Winnebago County Circuit Court with attempted first-degree intentional homicide and his fourth OWI in five years after he allegedly tried to run down a pedestrian in an apartment complex parking lot on Marathon Avenue in Neenah. When police apprehended Hinkle, he reportedly smelled of intoxicants, had bloodshot eyes and his lips, tongue and teeth were covered in a greenish, blue tint. Hinkel told officers the greenish, blue coloring was from food coloring that he drank because of its alcohol content. He told them he had also been drinking both vodka and a bottle of vanilla extract.


For allegedly attempting homicide while under the influence of baking products.

For finding the most creative way to get drunk since Kitty Dukakis whipped up a rubbing alcohol gimlet.

For dispensing with the old cliché of getting caught red handed in favor of getting caught greenish, blue tongued.

And for getting drunk on vanilla extract and food coloring, leaving him just a cup of flour and a can of frosting shy of being charged with impersonating a Christmas cookie.

We are proud to name Bryce Hinkel as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

John Evans returns to the Rick and Len Show this morning and he is back in black! (You're going to have to watch the video below to see what I mean by that!)

John has been on multiple seasons of NBC's Last Comic Standing (which means he didn't win. But what do they know? He's funny!!!) Call 920-734-JOKE to see John this weekend at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton. (Plus, after a hot, humid week, wouldn't a big fruity girl drink really hit the spot?)

Green Bay taxpayers could save more than $100,000 on the first phase of building of the Zippin Pippin roller-coaster at Bay Beach. The savings will come from:
a. shrewd bargaining.
b. low labor costs.
c. cost cutting ideas they received from the safety director at BP.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt has reportedly lost some of his enthusiasm for the Zippin Pippin roller coaster after he learned:
a. Elvis never actually rode on it.
b. public support has been less than overwhelming.
c. you must be at least this tall to ride this ride.

A priest in Connecticut is accused of embezzling 1.3 million dollars from the church that he allegedly spent on male escorts. This is very unusual since:
a. most priests would never do such a thing.
b. there aren't many male escorts in Connecticut.
c. normally a priest's partner doesn’t get a million dollars from the church until after a court settlement.

Doctors in New York state have helped a boy born with only half a face. The miraculous surgery was done using:
a. skin taken from the boy's legs and chest.
b. flesh-like latex prosthetics.
c. a donation from BP CEO Tony Hayward since that two faced son-of-a-bitch had one to spare.

A porn star has pledged to orally service every one of her Twitter followers if the Netherlands wins the World Cup. Since making the promise, the number of her Twitter followers has jumped from 15,000 to over 100,000. The toughest part of fulfilling her promise is expected to be:
a. spending that much time on her knees.
b. finding a space big enough to accommodate 100,000 horny guys.
c. turning down all the offers of assistance from George Michael.

An Abercrombie and Fitch store in New York City has had to temporarily close down because it's overrun with bed bugs. Store officials have responded by:
a. fumigating.
b. replacing their inventory.
c. changing the name of the store to Abercrombie and Itch.

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail yesterday. The sentence shouldn't be to tough for Lindsay since:
a. she'll probably get paroled in a few hours.
b. she could be allowed to serve it at her home under house arrest.
c. after dating that Samantha chick, she's no stranger to spending 90 days in the hole.

This is the lingerie model from Paraguay who was going to run naked through the streets of a Paraguayan city if the team advanced in the World Cup. Note the AXE Body Spray logo on her breast. What better sign that your boobs are enormous than you can start selling advertising space on them. They're both a billboard and a cell phone cozy. That's right, her boobs are multi-tasking.

The city of Bemidji, Minnesota has erected a bunch of 4-foot tall "Beaver" sculptures, which were painted in a variety of bright colors by some local artists. However, one of the artists has been accused of painting a woman's private parts on the belly of one of the beavers. Says the woman, "I understand people see different things in art, and they need to be free to do that. My intent was to paint a praying woman."

So, what do you see? A woman praying or...something else?

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...Mike Baumgartner of Madison who this week was busted for watching porn...while touching a McDonald' the play area. Baumgartner was reportedly typing with one hand and fondling himself with the other while watching pornographic images on his laptop with 15 to 20 children playing nearby. Baumgartner told the arresting officer he had just "exercised poor judgment".


For not understanding that just because he's in the play area of a McDonald's doesn't mean he gets to stick his hand in his ball pit.

For not realizing that being in a McDonald's doesn't automatically mean you can touch your McNuggets.

for not just exercising poor judgment, but rather, the worst judgment anyone has exercised since Kurt Cobain said "I do".

And for punching the clown at McDonald's...and we don't mean Ronald.

We are proud to name Mike Baumgartner of Madison as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK.

If I had a nickle for every time someone has said to me, "You know, that Mike Merryfield is one funny motherf#$%ker", I would be well on my way to a quarter. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but I swear, nobody has ever said that to me about any of the other 400+ comics we've had on the Rick and Len Show over the years. So, he must be one funny mother#$%ker.

Tonight is WAPL night at Skyline Comedy Cafe which means you get 2 for 1 admission for this funny mofo. Or pay full price to see him on Friday or Saturday. He is, after all, full price funny! (Plus, he has an adorable little son, and if you don't go to Skyline this week, she won't eat! It's not that he needs the money for food. He just doesn't like to cook unless his little comedy show sells out! What an a-hole! But it's up to you. But I beg you, don't let her starve!)

Make your reservations at 920-734-JOKE.

Maggots falling from a spoiled container of meat in someone's luggage forced a US Airways flight departing Atlanta to return to the gate Monday. The maggots were dropping on to passengers from the overhead compartment. Why would somebody be traveling with rotten meat? There must be a good explanation. Maybe ten good explanations!


10. The overpowering stench covers of the smell of alcohol on the pilot’s breath.

9. Inspiration for new movie about Samuel L. Jackson trying to get these mother frickin' maggots off this mother frickin' plane.

8. Meat was in a pair of pants left behind by the bag’s previous owner, Green Bay alderman Guy Zima.

7. No matter how rotten, stinky and maggot-filled the meat may be, it's still more appetizing than your in-flight meal.

6. Easier to keep track of your luggage if you can always smell where it is.

5. Dogs too busy gagging and vomiting to sniff your bag for drugs.

4. Since you can't travel with toothpaste or mouthwash, best not to travel with food that is edible.

3. Rolling it up to swat crawling maggots, only suitable use for otherwise worthless complimentary in-flight magazine.

2. Watching crawling maggots drop from the overhead compartment more interesting that watching another in-flight movie staring Kate Hudson.

1. Simple misunderstanding. Passenger thought carry-on was spelled "c-a-r-r-i-o-n".
