A new report shows that due to the recession, tourism in our part of the state is down about 10 percent. Here's our suggestions of the:


10. Relocate Vice President Joe Biden to Little Chute. People will come from miles around to see him get slivers in his tongue every time he sticks his foot in his mouth while wearing wooden shoes.

9. Let people start playing in fountain at Appleton's old Avenue Mall and start promoting it as an "indoor water park".

8. Siphon some tourism business from Door County by lining highway from Illinois to the Fox Cities with aggressive "A-Holes Welcome" billboard campaign.

7. During summer months, require members of Appleton City Council to bend over while kneeling naked on College Avenue to serve as unique, easy to use bike racks.

6. Institute catchy new tourism slogans for area communities like "Follow Your Nose to Kaukauna", "Oshkosh: Now 20% Less Blighty", "Green Bay: With Over 100 Convenience Stores, Someplace to Rob is Always Just Around the Corner", and "Visit Menasha: No, Seriously!".

5. Hang sign on NBC 26's downtown Appleton store front window that reads "Watch monkeys at play" because hey, who doesn't love monkeys?

4. Book rafting expeditions on the Yellow River in downtown Fond du Lac. Make river self perpetuating by serving rafters plenty of beer.

3. Advertise on Animal Planet. Encourage pet owners to come here to tour the Gannett Newspapers printing plant to see where the paper they use to train their dogs comes from.

2. Promote driving through Highway 41 road construction as a fun adrenaline-boosting, death defying thrill ride. Take that, Great America!

1. As part of a Shop Downtown promotion, promise recipient of Appleton's 1000th parking ticket of the month a free urinal cake bearing the likeness of Mayor Tim Hannah.

This past Thursday, a woman in Cincinnati accidentally left her 3-year-old daughter behind at Wal-Mart. Worse yet, she didn't realize it until the next day when a friend called to say she saw the girl on the news.

How could she not miss one of her children? Well, because she has 15!!!! Here are some signs...


If every time you arrive for your annual check-up, your gynecologist is wearing a miner’s hat and spelunking might have too many kids.

If your water has broken so many times, FEMA has parked a trailer on your might have too many kids.

If you've had more contractions than a commencement address by Larry the Cable might have too many kids.

If you live in a shoe and don't know what to might have too many kids. (I never understood that rhyme. "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. Had so many children, she didn’t know what to do". Trust me, if she had that many children, she knew EXACTLY what to do!)

If your cooter has had more people come out than the cast of Operation: might have too many kids.

If the D.O.T has installed a "No Passing" lane in your birth definitely have too many kids.

Today, on the Yahoo! homepage there was an article about "The Dumbest Things You Can Do With Your Money". It was all stuff like hanging on to debt and falling in love with your investments. What a load of pish-posh! Here's OUR list of:


10. Publish a book of marital advice by Charlie Sheen.

9. Start a condom concession at a Star Trek Convention.

8. Market XXX sex tape staring the new Supreme Court nominee.

7. Open a shoe store in Kentucky.

6. Put a c-note on the Vikings to win the Super Bowl...any Super Bowl.

5. Start a Port-a-Potty business in Fond du Lac.

4. Open a whore house staffed entirely by the cast of The View.

3. Finance a chain of Barrack Obama smoking sesation clinics.

2. Start manufacturing religious themed "vagaziling" supplies for trendy nuns.

1. It's a tie: Buy shares in British Petroleum or shoreline property on the Gulf of Mexico.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...Milton Summers of Green Bay who faces criminal charges for allegedly head-butting his son's 13-year-old lacrosse teammate and punching his coach. Summers reportedly yelled at several of his son's teammates and then grabbed one of the boys by the ears, head-butted him and then pushed him into a fence, According to reports, Summers then punched the boy's coach in the face twice when he tried to intervene.


For being more tightly wound than an obsessive compulsive's wristwatch.

For butting a 13-year-old boy with his head which at least put it to some use since he apparently doesn't utilize it for thinking.

For not being afraid to punch a coach which makes you wonder "Hey, where was this guy during Mike Sherman and Ray Rhodes years with the Packers".

We are proud to name Milton Summers of Green Bay, who allegedly head-butted one of his son's 13-year-old lacrosse teammates before punching the coach as this week's Rick and Len...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

If you're looking for a gift for mom for this Mother's Day, the folks at Awkward Family Photos just released a book jam-packed with pix from their popular website. Here's a few photos from the site that, in my mind, best celebrate the beauty of motherhood.

Many of us were frustrated by how the bad weather and tornado warnings messed with our TV viewing last night. For those of you who are still wondering what you missed due to local meteorologists flaunting the their "weather woodies", we got summaries of the interrupted and preempted shows from the networks.

On Glee, in an effort to expand it's audience beyond the young, the gay, and the acappella Madonna song enthusiasts; the New Directions glee club sang only tunes by Metallica. Teacher Will Schuester was brought up on manslaughter charges after tender male soprano Kurt died from internal bleeding when attempting to belt out "Give me fuel, “Give me fire, give me that which I desire'...and his larynx exploded.

On American Idol, when Ellen Degeneres leaned over to whisper something to Simon Cowell, the blunt Brit thrust his tongue so far down her throat it touched her G-spot. As the two began to passionately make-out, the hurt and jealous Ryan Seacrest jumped crying into the arms of Randy Jackson who assured the show host that he would always have his hot weekend with Simon in Sausalito to remember. As for the performances, who cares?

On Lost, Jack and Kate saved everyone's life with their ingenious plot to adopt Appleton's current smoking ban. Instead of attacking and killing the island's inhabitants, the dreaded smoke monster was forced to come no closer than 10 feet from island's front entrance.

On Dancing with the Stars, Pamela Anderson experienced a "wardrobe malfunction" when the industrial strength elastic in her bra snapped, killing host Tom Bergeron and knocking the all the gay out of judge Bruno Tonioli. Anderson was then voted off the show. When the results were announced, she shook her mammoth silicon moneymakers in judge Len Goodman's face while shouting "You voted these babies off?" Goodman was treated at a local hospital for facial lacerations commonly associated with motorboat injuries.

I was a little self-conscious about taking off my shoes in the studio for Toe Reader Sherri Lee Devereau today. I'm guessing I'm not the only person who's self-conscious about their tootsies. So, as a public service, we've put together some signs:


If when you take off your shoes in the car, someone immediately asks if they’re passing might have bad feet.

If there is so much jam between your toes, you’re nationally known as "Smucker Foot" might have bad feet.

If Dr. Scholl's has referred you to Dr. might have bad feet.

If your case of athlete's foot is so bad you need Absorbine might have bad feet.

If they smell so bad, even your ass asks "What died down there?" might have bad feet.

If bunions were onions, you’d have enough to make fajitas for might have bad feet.

If bunions were Funyuns, you’d have enough to feed a boatload of might have bad feet.

If you find more corns on your foot than you find in your stool...after a fireman’s definitely have bad feet.

This week the popular travel site released their annual list of Worst Hotel Horror Stories. The stories included one about a hotel where the room was flooded with raw sewage, another where all the guests' belongings were stolen from their room and still another where the guests had to step over drunken partiers to get in and out of their room. (I swear that last one was NOT at the hotel where we stayed on our International Incident tip!)

However, it could have been worse. Here's our list of:


If the bedspread has enough DNA on it to start your own genetics might be staying at a bad hotel.

If the faucet in the bathroom keeps drip, drip, might be staying at a bad hotel.

If the "sanitized for your protection" strip on your toilet is stuck to the might be staying at a bad hotel.

If the porn on Spectra-vision is a video of you and your spouse from the night might be staying at a bad hotel.

If the mattress is lumpier than my ass (and smellier, too!) might be staying at a bad hotel.

If in lieu of air conditioning, the desk clerk offers to give you a free ice water might be staying at a bad hotel.

The "fresh" flowers in your room still have an "In memoriam" ribbon might be staying at a bad hotel.

If that is NOT a Baby Ruth candy bar floating in the motel might be staying at a bad hotel.

And if the soap in your shower was made by boiling the fatty remains of the room's previous're definitely be staying at a bad hotel.

Wednesday morning, we'll be joined in the studio by professional "toe reader" Sherri Lee Devereau.

Send us a picture of your toes and Sherri may read your tootsies on the air. They might even end up in Sherri's upcoming how-to book on "toe reading". E-mail us a pic of your toes (cute, ugly, weird, we want them all!) at Also, include the phone number where we can reach you Wednesday morning during the reading.

Then tune in Wednesday morning at 8 and see if Sherri reads your toes (or just to find out if Len's ticklish!)

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...Platteville Police Officer Michelle Salentine who this week was charged with...maintaining a crack house. According to the police report, Salentine also regularly smoked crack including times when she was on duty, in uniform and carrying a firearm. Salentine has admitted to authorities that she's been smoking crack 4 to 6 times a week for about a year.


For being both a cop and a crack user...which sounds to me like she's just trying to double her chances of meeting Bobby Brown.

For exercising the worst judgment this state has seen since the Packers gave Mike Sherman a contract extension.

For not heeding the words of Confucius who once said, "Police officer who smoke crack see career go up in smoke".

And for not understanding that you become a cop to crack heads not to BE a crack head!

We are proud to name Michelle Salentine, the crack smoking cop of Platteville as this week's Rick and Len...Weenie of the Week!

Well, today is a big day. Not only was it the on this day that Adolph Hitler married Eva Braun (and if those two wacky kids can't make it work, then who can?). It 's also the 25th anniversary of Len's and my first day on WAPL. Thanks for joining us for all or part of this crazy ride. It's been nothing if not an educational experience for me.



I have learned that you can't judge a book by it's cover, but if you flip through it and see a lot of 4 letter words, it's probably a lot more interesting than anything you'll ever read the Post Crescent.

I have learned that while nature abhors a vacuum, it must really despise Chicago since even after all these years...the Bears still SUCK.

I have learned that even if you hold an elaborate funeral, just because someone is "dead to you" doesn't mean the purple bastard isn't going to beat your team like a rented mule.

I have learned that you can fool some of the people all of time and all of the people some of time...which is why we have Tom Mahoney doing our weather forecasts.

I have learned that while you don't have to be crazy to work does however, seem to be a prerequisite for living in Sheboygan County.

I have learned that you can take the boy out of Menasha, but I'm probably still going to smell like this for the rest of my life.

I have learned that working diligently is all well and good, but you can get a much bigger raise by getting fired and then sitting on your ass for 17 months.

I have learned that no matter how many times she asks...DO NOT PULL JEANNE'S FINGER!

And I have learned that while you can't get blood out of a rock...I still bet it would soak up liquid better than a frickin' Sham-wow.
