Saturday I was reading the new issue of Entertainment Weekly and it mentioned a website called Awkwardfamilyphotos.com.

With a little time on my hands this weekend, I checked it out.Skimming over somebody else's family snapshots is not generally my idea of a good time. However, many of these shots made me laugh out out. In many cases, I can't even tell you why. Check out some of the samples above, then check out the site! You might add a few of your own! -Rick-

Dobie "Mr. Lucky" Maxwell returns to the Rick and Len Show tomorrow morning at 8:00 (5.22).

But you can see him tonight (5.21) at the Skyline Comedy Cafe with 2 for 1 admission! Why? It's WAPL night. Mention that to the nice person who answers the phone when you call 734-JOKE to make your reservations and you'll get stuck paying for your admission while they let your cheap-ass friend or relative in for free.

Bastards!

A 66 year old British woman is going to be giving birth in the Ukraine. As a public service of the Rick and Len Show, here's some signs....

YOU MIGHT BE TOO OLD TO BE GIVING BIRTH…

If your newborn has to learn to change your diaper before you learn to change his…you might be too old to be giving birth.

If instead of crying during the birth, your baby comes out sneezing from all the dust…you might be too old to be giving birth.

If the only thing you and your newborn have in common is the inability to chew solid foods…you might be too old to be giving birth.

If you can’t breast feed your new born because your milk is a quarter century past it's expiration date…you might be too old to be giving birth.

If you can't breast feed your new born without fear of bumping him in the head with your knee...you might be too old to be giving birth.

If your obstetrician opts for a cesarean birth just so your baby doesn’t have to fight through cobwebs to get out...you might be too old to be giving birth.

If chances are pretty good that your hip will break before your water does...you might be too old to be giving birth.

If you ever find yourself confusing your diaper bag with your colostomy bag...you might be too old to be giving birth.

If you’re hoping the baby is a boy just so you can name him Matlock...you are definitely too old to be giving birth.

Packer #1 draft pick B.J. Raji was asked to sign a hundred rookie cards with a pic from his college days as a member of the Boston College Eagles. We think he intended to sign them "Soar Eagles".

QUAIL FLU--the most apparent symptom is small, bleeding, pellet sized holes that erupt on the face and upper body. It’s contracted by getting too close to a bevy of quail…while hunting with Dick Cheney.

BEAR FLU--Symptoms include a rare respiratory condition that results in the sufferer being unable to exhale air leaving them to only suck.

COUGAR FLU--Most at risk: Ashton Kutcher.

CRAB FLU--Contracted only by coming in close personal contact with a crabs' natural habitat such as the ocean floor, tropical beaches or Lindsey Lohan's underpants.

OWL FLU--Symptoms are identical to inebriation and sometime include a mild burning sensation in the mouth and chunks of buffalo wings in your teeth. Can only be contracted at your local Hooters. (And who wouldn't want to contract that?)

GERBIL FLU--only known symptom is extreme constipation. Only known victim: Richard Gere.

DOG FLU--A potentially fatal disease that struck South East Asia in 1987 resulting in the deaths of 39 men who all died of broken necks sustained while trying to lick their own balls.

HONEY BEE FLU--It's primary symptoms are sluggishness and fatigue and is caused by exposure to excessive amounts of honey. As in, "Honey, I need you to be doing this" and "Honey, I need you to be doing that". The only known treatment is laying on the couch and watching the game while drinking no less than half a six pack of beer.

A listener found this guy's pic on the "personals" page on Craig's List. He thinks it's me. I'm not sure who should be more insulted. Him or Me? I'm guessing him!

-Rick McNeal-

Here's some signs that maybe Craig's List isn't going to help you get a date...(Obviously, these don't apply to the smooth-looking guy with the aquarium!)

If the picture in your ad hasn’t gotten you any dates but several women have contacted you to find the location and hours of the haunted house they assume you're advertising...Craig's List might not help.

If on your dating profile you feel compelled to describe yourself as a "good listener" just because you do everything the voices in your head tell you to do...Craig's List might not help!

If you have trouble finding a restaurant that you think a potential date would enjoy that also allows you to dine while seated next to your mother's disembodied head...Craig's List might not help!

If you’ve had sex with so many inflatable dolls, you've contracted a case of inflatable crabs...Craig's List might not help!

If the only women you seem to meet are the ones whose homes you stop by to inform them you’ve moved to their neighborhood in accordance with the judge’s instructions...Craig's List might not help!

If under "hobbies" on your profile you wrote "adding to my nipple collection"..Craig’s List might not help!

If your first name is Rick and your last name rhymes with IcNeal...Craig"s List is definitely not going help!

HOW THE SWINE FLU EPIDEMIC IS EFFECTING CELEBRITIES.

Paula Abdul--is more than likely protected against the virus because she almost certainly took some Tamiflu while downing everything else in the pharmacy before her weekly Idol broadcasts.

Michael Jackson--has started wearing a respiratory face mask over the respiratory face mask he already wears.

Mel Gibson--in a effort to avoid all pork products,is converting to Judaism.

Michael Phelps--to avoid the disease, is only inhaling air that has passed through a water filled cylindrical glass filtration device.

The Octomom--while not especially at risk for the Swine Flu, is nonetheless having the germs implanted in her body in hopes that the disease will bring her even more media attention.

Brett Favre--is coming back out of retirement because he knows that if the disease kills any family members during the season at least he'll have a great game.

Scarlett Johannson--is avoiding all contact with anyone who has visited Mexico in the last 6 months. At least that's why Rick assumes she hasn't answered any of his love letters.

Brett got his unconditional release from the New York Jets. Before he does anything rash and signs with you-know-who, perhaps he should take a look at these job alternatives and their pros and cons.

JOBS FOR BRETT FAVRE

SHOE SALESMAN
CON: He knows nothing about men's dress shoes.
PRO: He knows everything about flip-flops.

LAWYER
CON: Has no formal legal training.
PRO: Has plenty of family members with enough legal problems to start his own firm.

DELIVERYMAN
CON: The wear and tear of a long NFL career has taken it's toll on his body which could make if difficult for him to lift and convey heavy packages.
PRO: Has proven to Ted Thompson that he has no problem carrying a grudge.

DIET AND EXERCISE GURU
Pro: Has kept himself in great shape throughout is career.
Con: Even after 18 seasons in the NFL, hasn't handled as many balls as Richard Simmons.

AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE
PRO: His verbal skills are no match for the acid tongued Simon Cowell.
CON: It would be fun to watch him fight with Paula each week over their last Vicodin.

FRUIT OF THE LOOM MASCOT
PRO: His high celebrity profile would probably sell some underwear.
CON: There is only one purple uniform in which he'd look even more ridiculous than being dressed as a bunch of grapes.

A friend of a friend of mine was trying to do some yardwork this past weekend, but because he has a well-shaded yard, there was still a pile of snow. He got out the shovel during Saturday's beautiful weather and moved the snow around the yard a bit so it would melt. In the process, he got several mosquito bites. What better way of tell you MUST be from Wisconsin than getting bit by mosquitos while shoveling snow. It inspired me to come up with some more indicators.

If your odometer shows that you've put on over 200,000 miles, and that's just on your snow blower--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever spent an entire day at Fleet Farm picking out just the right wedding dress--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever showed up at church two hours before Sunday mass just to tailgate--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you think the F.B.I. is what dyslexics call Illinoisans--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you didn't know that people from Illinois are actually called Illinoisans--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever put off watering your lawn for a week because your son was using the garden hose to make a beer bong--you must be from Wisconsin.

If despite going "up nort" deer hunting every fall, you wouldn't know a white tail if it bit you on the ass--but you can identify every stripper at Weasel's just from the sight of their lower back tattoo--you must be from Wisconsin.

If accidentally taking a dump in the hood of your blaze orange snowsuit has ever caused you to leave a wedding early--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever removed a foam rubber cheesehead from a loved one to make it easier to close their casket--you definitely must be from Wisconsin.
