We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week…The Wisconsin DOT who have delayed completion of the U.S. 10/State 441 construction project by two years and the members of the Wisconsin legislature who caused the situation with its poor handling of the state budget.


For pissing off more Wisconsin drivers than a car with Illinois plates.

For being responsible for more blockages than the concessions at Little Chute Cheese Fest.

And for making driving an already dangerous stretch of highway more risky than unprotected sex with a Kardashian.

We are proud to name the Wisconsin DOT together with the governor and the state legislature as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIES OF THE WEEK.

10. Could have shared a ride on the Zippin’ Pippin with an area religious figure like Aaron Rodgers.

9. He cmight have helped save Door County from the forces of evil by vanquishing the FIBs that stayed past Labor Day.

8. He could have performed the world’s greatest miracle by creating a hat big enough to fit Tom Milbourn’s head.

7. Just as Jesus turned water into wine, he could have participated in sacred local tradition of turning beer into urine.

6. He could have taught that St. Vince dude some manners by showing him you take the big post hole digger hat off when you’re sitting in front of people at the game.

5. He could have checked to see how the Ten Commandments stack up against the new code of conduct for the Green Bay City Council.

4. He could gotten drivers on 41, 43, and 172 to use their directionals and drive the speed limit and that, my friends, would be a miracle.

3. He could tried to heal the lame, and what could be more lame than the WIXX morning show.

2. Some holy water, a little laying on of hands and a good word with the guy upstairs, he could have had Eddy Lacy and Jordy Nelson back in the game this week.

1. Just as Jesus fed the multitudes with just a loaf of bread and a couple fish, He could have tried to feed everyone at Paul’s Pantry with just the stolen meat from Green Bay Alderman Guy Zima’s pants.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week… Gideon Swartzentruber of Neillsville who was in Clark County court in central Wisconsin this week after being arrested earlier this month when he was caught having sex with a donkey. When asked why he had intercourse with the donkey, Swartzentruber explained that he “got crazy and carried away” because his “privates were out of control”.


For taking the term “piece of ass” a little too literally.

For proving himself to be a ho-mule-sexual.

And for having sex with a donkey which is only considered weird in central Wisconsin because the donkey was not his sister.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…a 22-year-old LaCrosse area man, Vaughn Rothering, who this week was in court on charges stemming from an incident back in May. According to police, Rothering accidentally shot his roommate while using the laser sight of his 9mm pistol to tease his cat.


For shooting a hole in his buddy’s leg…which should be a good match for the one he apparently has in his own head.

For not realizing that a gun isn’t anymore a cat toy than a ball of yarn is a defensive weapon.

And for being like a virgin who accidentally discharges at his very first site of a pussy…cat.

We are proud to name Vaughn Rothering as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

After seven seasons, American Ninja Warrior had it's first ever contestant  complete the either course. Then...another guy did it! Sounds to me like maybe it's gotten too easy.


Contestants must simultaneously build AND CLIMB OVER a wall DESIGNED by Donald Trump to be impenetrable to anyone whose skin tone is darker than “beige” on the Sherwin-Williams color wheel.

Contestants have to crawl a rope ladder over a pool of hungry sharks after chugging a beverage provided by Bill Cosby.

Contestants must traverse a gulch, gripping overhead life-like dildos starting with ones molded from Tommy Lee and Ron Jeremy becoming progressively smaller down to Brett Favre.

Contestants are obliged to have sex with multiple Kardashians without knocking one up despite using only the Chicago Bears offensive line for protection.

Contestants must walk across a body of water on a course of spinning logs. The body of water is Lake Michigan and the logs are the ones that you find near the Milwaukee shoreline whenever the sewer backs up.

Contestants, armed only with a machete and an industrial strength Weed Whacker have to try to emerge unscathed after being airlifted into the middle of Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt's eyebrows.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week…the Kenosha couple who mistakenly gave their 5-week-old child baby formula mixed with two shots of vodka. The baby had a blood alcohol level of .294, which police indicate is more than three times the legal limit for an adult driver. Thank God, the baby wasn’t driving!


For not just lacking in intelligence...Similac-ing in intelligence.

For mixing baby formula and vodka when everyone knows…baby formula goes better with brandy.

And for doing everything to endanger the safety of a child shy of putting it between to two halves Italian herb and cheese bread and giving it to Jared.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…the as yet unknown person who stole a handmade butterfly sculpture…from a 6-year-old North Fond du Lac girl’s grave in Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery.


For being so low, it’s amazing they could take a break from milking pregnant snakes to find time to steal.

For being such a disgusting piece of dung, even a stray dog wouldn't stiff 'em.

For being such a parasitic bottom feeder, if they were found in the Fox River the Navigational System Authority would make them indefinitely close a lock.

We are proud to name whomever stole the butterfly sculpture, handmade by her father, off a the grave of a 6-year-old girl at the Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…Detroit Lion Glover Quinn who this week blamed God for Jordy Nelson’s season ending injury. According to Glover, "If [Nelson] wouldn't have got hurt today, if he wouldn't have played in that game, if he wouldn't have practiced anymore, and the next time he walked on the field would have been opening day, I feel like he would have got hurt opening day”…because it was God’s will.


For making God sound like a real a-hole.

For investing his religious beliefs with all the logic of the Final Destination horror movies.

For not realizing that you can't blame god for every single thing that happens in the world that you don't like...that's what Obama is for!

My final full day in Sturgis for the 75th Annual Bike Rally was a blast. Got into downtown Sturgis and stopped in at One Eyed Jacks where I got an ice cil bottle of water (yes, water, believe it or not) from this little devil. I don't know why she would wear a shirt if she isn't really going to wear it for its intended coverage.

Some other patrons were having an interesting lunch consisting of a shot, whipped cream and a cherry served on the finest dinnerware imaginable.

I checked out the bike manufacturers displays and drooled all over myself at the amazing bikes...especially the new Screaming Eagle line of Harley Davidsons. Then a stroll along the madness and stimulative overload which is Main Street. I  interviewed a couple of Skid Row fans working in nothing but paint for ticket money to the band's concert at one of the  campgrounds here. Mandy and Shelby even told our listeners that the radio guy wasn't too creepy at all. Thanks, girls. Here's your five bucks.

After the broadcast with John and Elwood on the road show, I hit the trail on the Harley Davidson of Appleton machine south to the Mount Rushmore area. The Needles Highway is one of the most incredible rides you can take.

Winding hairpins, otherworldly rock formations, dead presidents on mountains and really narrow one lane (barely) tunnels make for some amazing fun.

You have to be wary of the occupants, though.

I want to thank Festival Foods for sponsoring the trip and Harley Davidson os Appleton for providing the awesome bike. I also would like to thank my workmates at WAPL for picking up some of the slack while I was away...especially Ross Maxwell because he had to babysit Rick.

It has been a crazy Bike Week in Sturgis. I am so thankful that Festical Foods and Harley Davidson of Appleton made it possible for me to do this and actually call it "working."
Wednesday night I wanted to see Crobot at Full Throttle Saloon. The website said 7 p.m. Found out after arrival that they weren't going on until midnight. After an all nighter getting  here followed by some riding, the Road Show broadcast and the general mayhem which is the bike rally, I wussed out and cashed in my last few chips. Nothing left in the tank. I suck at this, right?
Thursday, however, fulfilled lots of what the Sturgis thing is all about. Went for a nice ride up to Deadwood and Lead and then back to Sturgis to hang at the Full Throttle Saloon some more.
I wandered backstage (security never really asked me who I was or what I was doing as I just kept acting like I was somebody important) where I was warmly greeted by the inestimable Jesse James Dupree of Jackyl. We shot the bull on John and Elwood's show and shared a few laughs about his week at FTS. I'd be dead if I tried to keep up with him.

I then just wandered around looking for weirdness. I was butt-deep in it, believe me. Midgets were part of it. As I was on the air, I noticed four lovely topless women with nothing but strategically placed little stickers to cover the naughty bits. They would pose for a photo with guys for tips. The girl I spoke to told me her name and then said, "We're working here." Then she promptly turned away and went back to her soft-core hustling. Why would she be the only rude person I've run into the entire trip? Seems to me that if you have a personality which allows you to walk around naked for all intents and purposes, you would be a little willing to have some fun with the well-intentioned radio guy. I wasn't even all that pervy.

A couple of nice fellas from New Jersey chatted me up a bit. They are renting a house  in nearby Spearfish with 10 guys for $7000 for the week. I need to buy some Black Hills real estate, I guess. They said they stopped for cheese in Wisconsin on their way out. Apparently they bought a while lot of good cheddar. They haven't pooped once since they got here last Saturday. I'm guessing.

People watching is, of course,  unparalleled in Sturgis. Some of them have managed to combine high fashion and literature.

I hooked up with some pals and headed out of Sturgis for one of my favorite rides in the Black Hills, the Spearfish Canyon run. Spectacular beauty at 35 mph. The temperature entering the canyon was about 85 degrees but must have dropped by 15 degrees instantly. It felt soooooo good. I parted ways with my riding companions at the road up to Rochford because I wanted to get out of the deep hills before dark because I know from previous night runs out of Sturgis that the deer are like mosquitoes in Wisconsin. Every where and mostly unseen until it's too late. Still, I had been advised by a Rockin' Apple listener back home that I should make pit stop at a place called  The Boar's Nest outside of Lead. Cool place on the creek with all of the amenities a dude could need. A cold beer and...

As dusk arrived and I was cruising Nemo Road's curves and scenery, There must have been at least a couple of hundred deer in the fields not far off the road. That is NOT an exaggeration. Kind of nerve-wracking but I made it back to Rapid City intact and hungry. I got some fantastically average Chinese food in my gullet and began contemplating my options. Kentucky Headhunters show downtown? A run back to FTS for Jackyl? A stop at a British Pub called The Wobbly Bobby just for he name? Nope. I watched post-Republican debate coverage because nothing could be more fun than that. I am pathetic.
Let's see what tomorrow brings.

I left home Tuesday afternoon and high-tailed it to South Dakota for a four day adventure at the 75th Annual Sturgis Bike Rally. I have a nice Heritage Softail to ride from the fine and beautiful people at Harley Davidson of Appleton (thanks Terry and Troy and the crew).
I got to Rapid City where my hotel is located but they didn't have my room ready,  dang it.

Once they got that squared away it was on to downtown Sturgis for the afternoon broadcast with John and Elwood. I decided (for purely research reasons only) to interview Rachel, a bartender at Easy Riders Saloon.

She seemed to be enjoying herself so I decided to ask her (for scientific purposes this time) if I could demonstrate for WAPL listeners what fishnet stockings sound like by rubbing them with my microphone. By the way, they sounded quite sexy.

I also ran into Tony Caldwell of Appleton. He won some contest in which the prize was an original 100-year-old brick from some Sturgis building. Can't wait to see how he straps that thing to his bike!

More to come tomorrow. Tune in during the 7 a.m. hour and from 3 to 5 p.m. on the Road Show for the moment to moment crazy that is Sturgis 75 made possible by  Harley Davidson of Appleton and Festival Foods...where all the cool bikers shop for groceries.
