25 and 3/4 years ago, a bunch of music's biggest stars recorded We Are the World to fight world hunger. Now, a bunch of comics, some actors and one or two actual singers have re-recorded it poorly to raise money for the LA Food Bank. The line up includes Sarah Silverman, Kurt Russell, Weird Al Yankovic, Kevin Nealon, and some old friends who've graced our studio and appeared on the Rick and Len Show like Doug Benson, Jimmy Pardo, Maria Bamford and Matt Braugner.

Who knew Kurt Russell was this funny?

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...Appleton Department of Public Works Director Paula Vandehey who issued a notice that people planning to attend the Downtown Appleton Christmas Parade would not be allowed to leave chairs or blankets on the street this year to reserve their spots any earlier than 9am yesterday morning. Vandehey indicated that the department would collect anything they found left out earlier than that. Vandehey receives this dubious honor for two reasons. 1.) She didn't make the proclamation until 11:40 Monday morning and was then surprised that many people did not get the message. And 2.) For not acting on her threat to collect the items left out before 9am, thus, penalizing those who followed the rules and, in doing so, lost their prime viewing spots to those who did not.


For making a decision that left more people standing out in the cold than the Wisconsin smoking ban.

For making a threat emptier than the heads on the set of Jersey Shore.

And for leaving College Avenue littered with so many old, dirty lawn chairs and filthy blankets, they might as well make downtown Appleton an alternate site for Country USA.

We are proud to name Appleton Department of Public Works Director Paula Vandehey as this week's Rick and Len...WEENIE OF THE WEEK.

9. "Do we need to send three players to your house to talk you into quitting, too?"

8. "Too bad you didn't come to training camp where we discussed the importance of throwing the ball to the guys in the purple uniforms."

7. "You're not just done. You're Vica-done!"

6. "Hey, are the pants the Packers are beating off of you, Wranglers?"

5. "Bet Randy Moss would have caught that one."

4. There is no number 4. Just like yesterday, Number 4 didn't show up.

3. "We're going to miss you, too, Brent."

2. "I'd call you a big dick but I've seen the pictures."

1. "Boy, was Ted Thompson right!"

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...66-year-old Steven Cowan of Black Earth, Wisconsin, near Madison, who this week threatened his wife and shot his television set while keeping police at bay for 15 hours all because he was angry that Bristol Palin is on Dancing with the Stars. Cowen was reportedly upset because he believes the young Palin is not a good a dancer and the only reason she is on the show is "f'n politics".


For destroying his television set meaning Sarah Palin can now see Russia from her house better than he can see her daughter from his living room.

For putting a bullet through his TV while watching Dancing with the Stars where as a normal man would have put it through his head.

And for realizing what tens of thousands of Wisconsinites have not, that there is no need to brave the cold, wet northern woods this weekend in search of a 30-point buck when he could stay at home and bag a 30-inch Zenith.

We are proud to name 66-year-old Steven Cowan of Dane County who shot his TV and staged a 15 hour police stand off because he was upset that Bristol Palin was on Dancing With the Stars as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK.

Mike Lukas returns to the Rick and Len Show Friday morning. He'll join us on-location at Appleton Power Sports during the Rock for Hunger Food Drive about 8am (and presumably make jokes about snowmobiles and canned goods).

I saw Mike Wednesday night at Skyline and he made me laugh so hard I steamed my glasses twice. Seriously!

See Mike tonight at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton and 2 for 1 admission because it's WAPL Night. Call 734-JOKE (5653) to make your reservation. Full (but still very reasonable) price on Thursday and Friday. Hey, laughter is the best medicine and Skyline Comedy Cafe is a lot cheaper than a colonoscopy (and twice as much fun!).

Here's a little taste of Mike from the Tonight Show...

Have you seen the video of the California man's confrontation with a TSA agent who was about to pat him down? The guy had opted for the pat down instead of going through the new x-ray screener and tells the agent "Don't touch my junk or I'll have you arrested". (If I'm not mistaken, those are words first utter by Fred Sanford.)

It must be hard for TSA agents to know where to draw the line between being thorough and being "handsy". Here are some guidlines:


If his hands have touched so many packages, they let him wear a UPS uniform to work...your airport security agent might be too intrusive.

If after looking in your luggage and patting you down, he informs you that the condoms in your toiletry bag are the wrong size...your airport security agent might be too intrusive.

If he tells you you're free to board the plane but suggests you get your left testicle biopsied as soon as you land...your airport security agent might be too intrusive.

If to find someone who would willingly spend as much time touching your junk, you'd have to get a phone number from Charlie Sheen...your airport security agent might be too intrusive.

If the whole experience leaves you feeling like you were Miss Black Rhode Island and he was Mike Tyson...your airport security agent might be too intrusive.

If on an average day, he touches more wieners than the quality control inspector at Berge's Whitelaw Sausage Company...your airport security agent might be too intrusive.

If he runs his hands over your nuts so many times you'd swear he was Stevie Wonder and the wrinkles on your sack were Braille...your airport security agent is definitely being too intrusive!

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...Nancy L. Thornburg of Fond du Lac who after being convicted of drunken driving for the eighth time showed up at her sentencing hearing...intoxicated.


For getting 8 OWIs proving that she learns so well from her own mistakes she's able to repeat them perfectly.

For spending more time in handcuffs than Harry Houdini.

And for showing up at her operating while intoxicated sentencing hearing drunk which is only slightly less inappropriate than showing up at your sentencing hearing for sexual assault with a boner.

We are proud to name Nancy L. Thornburg of Fond du Lac as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

Disgraced former Winnebago County D.A. Joe Paulus got sprung from federal lockup this week. Since we're pretty sure he was disbarred, it's going to hard for him to find another job where he can bang women on his desk. Plus, he still has to pay back over $48,000 in bribe money. What will he do? We've got some ideas.


10. Professional man whore. ("I was porking her and I'm loving it!")

9. Desk strength tester at Office Depot. ("I was porking her I and I'm loving it!")

8. Commercial spokesperson for McDonald's ("I'm loving it!")

7. Commercial spokesperson for Soap on a Rope.

6. There is no number 6. I accepted $48,000 in bribe money to skip number 6.

5. Ken Kratz legal adviser and/or new district attorney for Calumet County.

4. President of the United States. (Hey, the sex and the office desk thing worked for Clinton!)

3. Aerobics instructor given all the experience he must have gotten bending over and touching his toes every week for 6 years in the prison shower.

2. Opening course preparer for local restaurant since I'm sure he must have tossed a few salads in prison.

1. New Dallas head football coach since, after 6 years in prison he surely learned, like the Cowboys did last Sunday night, what it's like to be the bitch to a large group of physically imposing men.
