Last summer I spent some time in Chicago. While I was there, I visited the the new Modern Wing of the Art Institute. In addition to the paintings and sculptures, the Modern Wing also has installations by "video artists". One of them is by an artist named Bruce Nauman and is called Clown Torture. This is just part of it.

I post this one for one reason only. As an answer to people who ask me, "What goes on it that head of yours?" Finally, I have answer. This is EXACTLY what is going on inside my head 24/7!!!

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...the manager of the National Exchange Bank & Trust in Elkhart Lake. The manager reportedly arrived at work shortly after the bank opened last Thursday while a robbery was in progress but didn't notice anything unusual and went right to her office. While she was sitting at her desk, the gun wielding robber was locking all the tellers in the vault. She was reportedly still sitting at her desk when the robber walked out the north door of the bank with between 10 and 100 thousand dollars.

So,

For not paying attention while somebody just walks off with customer's hard earned money...which I thought was the Federal Government's job.

For proving that ignorance isn't just bliss...it's apparently also a management position.

And for being even less aware of what's going on around her than Helen Keller in oven mitts.

We are proud to name the manager of the National Exchange Bank & Trust in Elkhart Lake as this week’s Rick and Len...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

Near tragedy preceded opening day at Miller Park on Monday. During the annual Sausage Relay, the Italian Sausage was run over by his police escort. The sausage is okay. However, what does it say about your Major League Baseball team when it seems the only time they make national headlines is when something bad happens to one of it's sausage mascots? And why do the bad things only seem to happen to the Italian Sausage? And I wonder if former Pittsburgh Pirate Randall Simon has an alibi for the time of the accident.

Brett Favre's daughter is due to give birth any day now. According to one Minnesota newspaper, if Brett comes back this season, it will make him the NFL's first ever active player-grandfather. We thought this would be an excellent time to revisit the signs...

YOU MIGHT BE TOO OLD TO BE PLAYING PRO FOOTBALL.

If when you were in high school, not only were the referees' uniforms black and white so was your senior photo...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If the helmet you wore in your first game was as leathery as the skin on your face is today...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If your touchdown celebration is restricted to having a nice cup of warm Ovaltine...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If you need to take two Viagra just to give someone a stiff arm...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If your idea of "out of bounds" is all the jokes your teammates make about your bald spot...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If you can remember when the nickel defense was just a penny...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If your excuse for not being able to read a defense is "these damn bifocals" ...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If you celebrate a big victory by sneaking up behind your coach and dumping a bucket of Metamucil over his head...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If "the long snapper" is the name by which you refer to your ex-wife...you might be too old to be playing pro football.

If you think "roid rage" is getting angry when somebody steals your tube of Preparation H...you’re definitely too old to be playing pro football.

SIGNS THIS ISN'T GOING TO BE YOUR TEAM'S WORLD SERIES SEASON.

If your manager is in best shape of his life from all the time he spent walking out to the pitcher's mound during spring training...this might not be your team's World Series season.

If the only improvement the club has made since last season is the addition of a new team manicurist to eliminate the number of painful and embarrassing sack scratching injuries...this might not be your team's World Series season.

If to bolster concession sales during these tough economic times, the team is now giving players a 10 percent discount on all beer and hot dogs they buy before the 5th inning...this might not be your team's World Series season.

If your team decides to save millions of dollars on a quality closer by just mercifully just ending all your games after seven innings...this might not be your team's World Series season.

If your team receives a grant from the National Park Service based on your pitching staff having more damaged limbs than the Chequamegon National Forest after a tornado...this might not be your team's World Series season.

If the owner has announced a plan to combine the designated hitter with designated driver so your team’s many drunken players now at least have someone to drive them home after the game...this might not be your team's World Series season.

And if your team's logo looks suspiciously like the one on the left...as usual, this will definitely not be your team's World Series season.

This weekend, the Post Crescent reported that back in February, a Waupaca police officer Tasered an 85-year-old man who wandered away from the Veteran's Home at King. We're sure the officer must have had a good excuse...or maybe even ten good excuses.

WAUPACA COP'S TOP TEN EXCUSES FOR TASERING AN 85 YEAR OLD MAN

10. Afraid the old man was going to sink his teeth into him...and they weren’t even in his mouth.

9. He thought the old man was having a heart attack and mistook the Taser for a defibrillator.

8. The man was so old he reminded the cop of Andy Rooney and who wouldn't want to Taser Andy Rooney?

7. Knew the old man was packing a powerful weapon...the unparalleled political clout of the AARP.

6. Feared the old man might have been tripping on Geritol or Metamucil.

5. Same reason Jeanne sits so far away from Rick. Didn't want to get covered in old person smell.

4. Was concerned the man had taken Viagra and wanted to subdue him without getting close enough to get an eye poked out.

3. It was a cold February day and the thought of doing something that would cause him to burn in hell seemed like a good idea at the time.

2. Who needs an excuse? Taserin' folks is fun!

1. He had already used up all his pepper spray on a disabled kid.

This past week, the Green Bay Packers elected Greg Koch to the team's Hall of Fame. Greg played for the Packers back in the mid 80's. When he left to go to the Dolphins, he had less than kind things to say about Green Bay. We responded and so did WAPL listeners.

Here's the story from the November 3rd, 1986 issue of Sports Illustrated. (Click the article twice to make it bigger!)

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...35-year-old Brian Kluck who this week had his preliminary hearing set on charges related to a string of peeping incidents on Appleton's north side. The charges relate to a 2008 bust when Kluck was arrested for looking into bathroom windows and was found to be keeping detailed lists of women in the neighborhood that he had successfully seen nude and those he still wanted to see nude. Kluck reportedly told police he even kept track of when some of the women routinely showered and admitted he had even taken photos of at least three particular women.

So,

For making it clear why the words "peep" and "creep" share so many letters.

For doing more to make take the pleasure out of a woman’s shower time than a steel wool loofa.

For giving even more women the hee-jeebees than my high school yearbook photo.

We are proud to name Brian Kluck of Appleton as this week's Rick and Len... Weenie of the Week!

Chris and Jason from Project Pink, the extraordinary Floyd tribute show you can see at the Meyer Theater Saturday night, dropped by the studio this morning and we played Would You Rather? A number of people asked for a list of the questions. Here they are with Chris and Jason's answers in BOLD.

WOULD YOU RATHER...

Be pummeled to death by wild monkey's using small but powerful golden hammers or be eaten alive by the living members of the cast of the Lawrence Welk Show?

Spend the rest of your life dressed only in the that green question mark suit the guy from the late night infomercials wears while yelling about free money from the government or only be allowed to scratch your balls during total solar eclipses?

Have the only music that you're ever allowed to listen to for the rest of your life be any the hundreds of songs Celine Dion has recorded in French or only the jingle for The Lullaby Shop?

Spend the best of your life suffering from a case of free roaming nipples where your man nips would constantly move about your body or have to drink a 32 ounce Slushie made with cold, congealing fat liposucked from Susan Boyle's flabby arms?

Tom Zalaski use your tongue to clean out his ears or have Tom Milbourn wear your ass like a hat?

Yesterday, someone posted a link to what they called the... Saddest. Book. Ever. on Fark.com. While I couldn't agree more, I was reminded of a product I first discovered in my grocer's freezer case a few years ago that is clearly the... Saddest. Food Item. Ever! And it's made right here in our area.

It's Orv's Party For One Pizza.

Seriously? Party For One?

Now, first off, the title is a bit misleading. Unless the pizza comes with a bottle of hand lotion and a coupon for a free month of the Spice Channel, it has no right being called a "Party for One".

But sweet Jesus could the name be any more depressing?

Here are the only other food products I can think of that would be as sad as Orv's Party for One Pizza. (If you don't see them on your grocer's shelves, ask for them by name!)

Nobody Will Ever Love You Macaroni

You're Friends Are All Laughing At You Behind Your Back Cottage Cheese.

You Will Die Cold and Alone In A Puddle of Your Own Sick Grape Soda.

It Will Be Weeks Before Anyone Finds Your Body Clam Chowder.

Your Ex-Girlfriend Has Told Everybody About the Time You Couldn't Get It Up Spaghetti Sauce.

The Older You Get the More You Look Like Ron Howard's Creepy Brother Canned Peaches in Heavy Syrup.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...the 20-year-old Wisconsin Rapids man who had to be rescued by firefighters when he became stuck in the laundry chute after children dared him to slide down it. What's more, he caused a young girl in the house to panic when firefighters brought out a saw to cut the man out of the chute and she thought they were going to cut him in half.

So,

For doing something stupid on a dare from children, which I believe is the same way John McCain ended up with Sarah Palin as his running mate.

For trying to slide down the chute feet first, when clearly, he should have gone the other way because if he had landed on his head he at least wouldn't have damaged a working body part.

And for getting stuck in a chute that's not designed for entry...which, if I'm not mistaken, is George Michael's worst possible nightmare.

We are proud to name the Wisconsin Rapids man who got stuck trying to slide down a laundry chute on a dare from some kids as this week's Rick and Len...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

Join Len and Ross (Rick is still faking sick!) Friday morning when they'll be joined by Shane Mauss who's appearing at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton. Shane's been on with Conan a bunch of times and his Comedy Central special just debuted last week! Make your reservation to see him in person at the Skyline this weekend by calling 920-734-JOKE.

Shane is originally from LaCrosse and he's just twisted enough to make me think he might be the guy drowning all those UW-LaCrosse students in the Mississippi. If you don't believe me, check out these clips of the man in action.

Brunswick Community College in Calabash, North Carolina has purchased the Close Encounters Gentleman's Club and is planning to turn it into classroom space. As a result, we here at the Rick and Len Show thought it would be a good time to take a look at...

SIGNS YOUR SCHOOL MIGHT HAVE BEEN A STRIP CLUB

If your physics professor demonstrates Newton's Laws of Motion, by using his supple thighs to slide down the pole in the middle of your "lecture hall"....your school might have been a strip club.

If you have to pay an extra hundred bucks to take trigonometry because it's held in the champagne room...your school might have been a strip club.

If pieces of volcanic rock are not the hardest things that have ever been in the room that is now your geology lab...your school might have been a strip club.

If despite the fact that it doesn't serve any kind of seafood, the cafeteria always seems to smell like fish...your school might have been a strip club.

If your History of Medieval Warfare class has a two drink minimum...your school might have been a strip club.

If your tuition is due by the end of the first week of the semester and must be paid in full to the cashier in the business office...in singles...your school might have been a strip club.

If your school colors are Amber and Sapphire...your school might have been a strip club.

If no matter what the class, the question most asked of all the teachers is "How do I get this frickin' glitter off of me?"...your school was definitely a strip club!
