The City of Oshkosh last week unveiled its new tourism slogan, "Oshkosh...Wisconsin's Event City."
Wow. Really? Somebody got paid for that?
If only they has consulted The Rick and Len Show first. Here's our Top Ten Better Slogans for Oshkosh.

10) Oshkosh...Pretty much riot-free since 1995.

9) Oshkosh...Why?

8) Oshkosh...More than just the landfill and prison you see from the highway.

7) Oshkosh...You can't get here from there...and you can't get there from here, either.

6) Oshkosh...Stop by. We won't tell anyone.

5) Oshkosh...Not quite as pee-stained as Fond du Lac.

4) Oshkosh... The UW. And some bars.

3) Oshkosh...Appleton's wayside.

2) Oshkosh...Country USA, EAA...and 50 other weeks.

And the number one tourism slogan for Oshkosh that's better than "Wisconsin's Event City..."
Oshkosh...What happens in Oshkosh stays in Oshkosh. Because no one gives a rat's ass about what you did in Oshkosh.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week... every Green Bay Packers fan who said to me this week that they are just sick to death of hearing about Brett Favre and how we should just shut up about Brett Favre...but then continued for another 15 minutes to talk to me about Brett Favre!!!

So...for claiming that you're going to turn off the radio whenever you hear the name of the man whose name you think should not be spoken…but somehow you know exactly what we said about him.

For declaring that you don't care anymore about #4...and then holding to that conviction about as well as Brett sticks to his retirements.

And for saying that you won't watch ESPN when they break in with the latest Favre news, but then you rush to the TV like a Favre sibling rushes to free shoplifting day at the Hattiesburg, Mississippi WalMart.

We are proud to name every Green Bay Packers fan who said to me this week that they are sick to death of hearing about Brett Favre but who themselves can't stop talking about him as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week.

Comic Joe List will join us Friday morning round about 8am.

See Joe tonight (Thursday) at the Skyline Comedy Cafe at 8. Make sure you mention it's WAPL night and get 2 for 1 admission. Hey, face it, it's probably going to rain and ruin your outside plans, so call 734-JOKE (5653) and have a little indoor fun.

Or see Joe Friday or Saturday night at Skyline. You'll laugh! (if not, you can call me a liar. Like I care!)

Oh sure. We've all heard the expression, "Party like a rock star". But what does that really mean? Take a look at this photo of Iron Maiden's actually bar tab from Finnegan's Pub in Norway and you'll understand.

You know, I get the 78 pints of Guinness and the 21 glasses of Jaeger. But 27 Slippery Nipples? Doesn't sound very heavy metal to me. But still...a 20109.00 Norwegian Kroner (about $3266 US) bar tab is nothing to shake a liver at.

A Packers fan who now lives in Seattle sent the Rick and Len Show a cool tune he and some friends wrote to honor wide receiver Donald Driver. They put it to the song "Holy Diver" by Dio. It's done very well. Check it out here.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenies of the Week...two of the strippers involved in an altercation this week outside The Other Place, a Fond du Lac strip club. Two dancers in their 30's allegedly roughly grabbed and spit on a 21-year-old dancer whom they accused of allowing men to inappropriately touch her during lap dances so she could make more money. The 21-year-old told police the altercation started in the club's dressing room where someone, presumably one or both of the two older dancers, glued her curling iron shut.

So,

For gluing the other stripper's curling iron shut when they obviously really wanted to glue her legs shut.

For getting into a 3-way all stripper cat fight outside the business proving once and for all that the streets of Fond du Lac are way too classy to be known ONLY for public urination.

And for using glue on the curling iron which proves there is, in fact, something in a strip club even stickier than the pole (and presumably the pants of the 21-year-old dancer's customers!)

We are proud to name the fighting Fondy strippers as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIES OF THE WEEK!

(Picture not of the actual Fondy fighting strippers!)

From Janesville to Last Comic Standing, it's been a wild ride for the wildly funny Pete Lee. He may be the only comic we've ever had the show that was on a soap opera. (a doctor on As the World Turns!)

Pete will join us in the studio Friday morning about 8 for some smart ass hijinks! See him at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton. Tonight is WAPL night, slip that little nugget into the conversation when making our reservations at 920-734-JOKE (5653) and get 2 for 1 admission.

Or check him out at the still very reasonable 1 for 1 admission on Friday or Saturday nights.

Here's a little of the man in action!

In the interest of fairness, let's examine the claim made by the website Deadspin that Brett Favre texted photos of his penis to cheerleader tuned sports reporter Jenn Sterger while he was with the Jets. Here's are the pros and cons...

They claim you can tell it's Brett because he's wearing the same wristwatch he wore at his first retirement press conference.

Con: It's probably not Brett because hundreds of men probably have the same watch.
Pro: It could be Brett because the watch's big hand is on the 12 and it’s little hand is...throwing an interception.

The woman he reportedly sent the pictures to was a sports reporter.
Con:
It's probably not Brett because there were never any reports of him sending pictures of his penis to sports reporters when he was in Green Bay.
Pro: It could be Brett because if Larry McCarren had received a picture of a twisted, fleshy appendage he probably would have assumed it was a photo of his own finger.

In one of the photos Brett is reportedly masturbating.
Pro:
It could be Brett because he is kind of a jerk off.
Con: It's probably not Brett, since we've only heard about him having a cannon for an arm, not a penis.

The pictures were supposedly sent while Brett was a member of the New York Jets.
Pro:
It could be Brett because he did have regular interaction with the woman in question during that period.
Con: It's probably not Brett because if he was with the Jets and not Minnesota at the time, why does the penis in the picture reportedly have a purple helmet?

One of the pictures reportedly shows Brett groping his genitals.
Pro:
It could be Brett because it reportedly does look like it could be his hand.
Con: It's probably not Brett because he’s only holding his balls not throwing them to an opponent’s defensive back.

The woman initially denied driving saying it was a friend behind the wheel and she was in the back seat with a dog and the witnesses might have seen her raise her hand to control the dog. She finally admitted to being the driver but still denied making an obscene gesture, saying she'd have known if she had done so adding "because, believe me, I know how to flip people off."

By my estimates, over the years, we've had between 400 and 500 comics on the Rick and Len Show. Auggie Smith is in my top 5! In fact, now that I think about it, he may very well be #1. See the Aug Man tonight through Saturday night at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton.

And tune in Friday morning at 8 when Auggie joins us in the studio! Until then, enjoy this very funny clip of the man in action...
