We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week…Lakeshia Van Straten and Andrew Schucknecht. They are the Waupaca County couple caught allegedly of trying to burglarize a business in Helvetia Township about 3am Tuesday morning while leaving their frightened and crying toddler behind by himself in Van Straten’s car. The pair reportedly already has 20 pending burglary and theft charges against them.

For apparently exhibiting  the worst judgment since the one at the OJ trial.

For allegedly leaving their young boy in a car alone...which sounds to me like a desperate attempt to reboot a series of McCauley Culkin movies.

For trying to break in to a business while also breaking their toddler in by letting him experience the cold hard reality of what it's like to have atrocious parents. 

And for giving Adrian Peterson a run for his money in the parent of the year competition.

We are proud to name Lakeshia Van Straten and Andrew Schucknecht as this week’s Rick and Len Show… WEENIES OF THE WEEK!

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Weenies of the Week… Travis Husnik of Luxemburg and Heather Basten of New Franken who this week were sentenced following an incident back in August where the two reportedly had sex in the back of a squad car while being transported by an deputy to the Oconto County Jail.

So,

For not understanding that conjugal visits usually don’t start until AFTER you get to the jail or prison.

For doing the pokey-pokey while being taken to the pokey. 

For apparently thinking the deputy said to slam her when he said he was going take them to the slammer.

For having what can only be called K-Mart sex…which is doing it beneath a flashing blue light.

And for proving that unlike some places in the country, in Oconto County, you don’t get screwed by the cops so you apparently have to do it yourself.

We are proud to name the Oconto County squad car humpers as this week's Rick and Len Show...Weenies of the Week.

This couple was sentenced this week in connection with doing it the backseat of an Oconto County Sheriff's vehicle while a deputy was driving them to jail. Seriously!

THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF BEFORE HAVING SEX IN AN OCONTO COUNTY SQUAD CAR

10. Will these handcuffs make it more difficult…or more kinky?

9. Can I heighten the experience by attaching the officers’ Tasers to my nipples?

8. If I put on the officer's Kevlar vest, would this still be considered “unprotected sex”?

7. How will being known as the guy who’ll do it anywhere affect my social life in prison? 

6. Will doing it so close to the cop’s big, black night stick make me feel inadequate?

5. Is there a police code for sex in the back of a squad car and if there isn't, shouldn't it be a 10-69?

4. Will doing it doggie style make the K9 officer jealous?

3. What are the chances that a woman willing to do it in the backseat of a squad car doesn't have more viruses than a Liberian Petri dish?

2. Since this is Oconto County, is it wrong for me to be doing this with a woman who isn’t even my sister?

1. Will this leave a stain on my permanent record and/or the backseat upholstery?

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…"That one guy". Let me explain. Saturday was, of course, Octoberfest in downtown Appleton. Organizers estimate that it was the biggest crowd ever and evidence suggests that they set a record this year for beer consumption. As many as a hundred thousand people and a virtual river of alcohol on a hot day can be a recipe for disaster. Yet, the total number of arrests at this year’s Octoberfest in Appleton….ONE! Yep. The only person arrested during this year’s Octoberfest was" that one guy" who was arrested for disorderly conduct. You know the guy I’m talking about. "That one guy" who gets a couple-three beers in him and is suddenly filled with enough bravado to pick a fight with lamppost. "That one guy" who when he’s drinking doesn’t realize that his hands belong in his own pockets and not on some stranger’s ass. "That one guy" who after a couple beers, has the manners of a cranky, brain damaged Doberman.

So,

For being "that one guy" who's trying to prove that one bad Apple-tonian can spoil the who bunch .

For apparently being "that one guy" who has a harder time holding his alcohol than 90-year-old Betty White has holding her urine during a sneeze.

And for being "that one guy" who, like a virgin in Peoria, is one in a hundred thousand .

We are proud to name "that one guy" who got arrested at Octoberfest as this week’s Rick and Len Show….WEENIE OF THE WEEK! 

(Police have not released the identity of "that one guy".)

THINGS GREG JENNINGS DOESN’T MISS ABOUT PLAYING IN GREEN BAY  

10. Walking past a trophy case that isn’t as empty as a Kardashian brain cavity.

9. Expending all that energy that comes with celebrating the catching of touchdown passes.

8. The sheer boredom of having the ball thrown to him damn near every week by the same quarterback.

7. Playing alongside running backs who don’t make Michael Jackson’s dad look like Father of the Year.

6. Having to play games after the end of December.

5. Not playing for an owner who seems shadier than a picnic spot in Redwood National Park.

4. Not wearing a uniform that looks like Barney the Dinosaur splooged all over him.  

3. The fresh and clean feeling from a good Packer brainwashing.  

2. Watching BJ Raji scrubbing his taint during post-game shower.

1. Having to use two hands to count a single season’s wins.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week…Your 2014 Milwaukee Brewers who yesterday completed their near historic collapse with a loss to the Cincinnati Reds officially eliminating themselves from playoff contention after leading the division for almost the entire season. Hell, they even had the best record in baseball for a good chunk of the year. In fact, I remember at the All Star Break, based on their record, one statistician put their chances of making the play-offs at something like 93%. But nooooooo, not the Brewers.

So,

For failing as massively as Ryan Braun taking a drug test.

For folding faster than a speed origami-ist.



And for being such as major disappointment, every Brewer fan must now know what it was like to be Rick’s parents.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week!

REASONS SO MANY AREA ACCIDENTS TUESDAY MORNING

10. People coming south from Green Bay and North from Oshkosh not sure how to drive on rare section of highway 41 not currently under construction.

9. In hind sight, replacing  concrete and asphalt on stretches of state highways with Teflon slathered in Wesson oil perhaps not the best idea.

8. With summer officially over, Wisconsin drivers confused driving on highways that are suddenly no longer filled with speeding, tailgating FIBS weaving in and out of traffic.

7. Many people driving with disregard for their own lives since the pending onslaught of 2014 campaign ads has sapped them of their will to live.

6. Lots of area residents preparing for the trip home from Oktoberfest chose Tuesday morning to start practicing their drunken driving.

5. Chain reaction accident caused by Mayor of Green Bay not being able to see over the dashboard while driving without his booster seat.

4. Too many people trying to drive while using their smart phones to search for pictures of the supposed three breasted woman.

3. Scads of people lost control of their vehicles at the same time lunging for their radios to turn up the 199Ride.com guy so they wouldn't miss a single word.

2. Folks were just rushing to get to work before the snow fall after seeing commercial with Scott Walker in that hole and mistakenly thinking that if he crawled out and saw his shadow it meant winter would arrive six weeks early.

1. One driver actually used their turn signal and confused the hell out of everyone else on the road.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week… Vanngeoli Arreguin, the 27-year-old Sheboygan woman who is facing more than 21 years in prison for a string of misdeeds including allegedly stealing her boyfriend's truck while drinking, forcing her boyfriend’s 11-year old cousin to steal donuts from Kwik Trip, and beheading her boyfriend's pet peach-faced lovebird. When the 11-year-old told Arreguin she shouldn’t be drinking and driving, Arreguin reportedly told her that it was okay to do so because she was from Texas.

So,

For reportedly not understanding that forcing an 11-year-old to steal donuts is cruller and unusual punishment. 

For thinking that being from Texas entitles you to drink and drive when it's been my experience that the only thing being from Texas entitles you to is being an a-hole, and that's only if you also own a pro football team in Dallas.

And for allegedly beheading her boyfriend’s pet peach-faced lovebird which means she's either the ISIS of the avian world or she seriously misunderstood the boyfriend's request for "a little head".

We are proud to name Vanngeoli Arreguin as this week’s rick and Len Show…WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

I'm sure the perpetrators imagine (rightly so) a balding, middle age potbellied family man proudly cruising the city, his comb-over flowing out the half open window.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…the Hobart man who was so “appalled” he wrote to the Green Bay Press Gazette this week to complain about the Packer organization because when he attended a pre-season game at Lambeau the Jumbotron camera operator scanned the crowd and some woman lifted her top and flashed her… sports bra. What if children would have seen that?

Never mind that the camera operator couldn't have known that the woman was going to lift her shirt. And never mind that kids see more revealing sights than a woman in a sports bra at beaches and swimming pools, on TV, on billboards and probably even in their text books.

So,

For being so tight assed, his time would be better spent sticking coal up his butt to turn it into diamonds than writing appalled letters to the Press Gazette.

For not realizing that if his child has never seen anything as revealing as a woman in a sports bra, he should probably be arrested for having kept them locked in a closet their entire lives.

For not realizing that this week, NFL teams are just happy if a "controversial video" involving their team doesn't show one of their players using his wife or girlfriend as a punching bag.

We are proud the Hobart man who wrote to the Press Gazette to complain about the Packers because he was "appalled" that a woman was shown lifting her shirt and showing her sports bra on the Jumbotron as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

After a pretty long day in the sun in Deadwood Thursday I was planning to see Jackyl at Fuill Throttle Saloon but the place was an absolute madhouse. By the time I would have reached the place the show would have been half over. Oh, well. I'm sure those guys will be around NE Wisconsin very soon so I'll catch up with Jesse James Dupree then.

This morning I had a chance to visit the Black Hills National Cemetery. It's a humbling place. There were some honor guard guys waiting for a veteran's burial but otherwise just me. As we undertake military actions in the Middle East I was looking directly at what wars really cost. Let's not do that anymore.


Quite a jarring change in scene just a few miles away in Sturgis. The crazy that is the bike rally was in full swing as I set up shop at the Easy Rider saloon right on Lazelle Street. As I talked with Elwood on the Road Show I had tons of bikes to watch, tons of people walking right by, two incredibly buxom ladies serving beers to my right, a bad country band playing behind me and girls with little on hanging from the rafters doing sexy gymnastics on long fabric things. you know, just another afternoon in South Dakota.

I moved over to Main Street which is filled with thousands of bikes and people. I decided to interview a tattoo guy working on ladies in a storefront window. You get free shots of Jack Daniels with your tattoo. I'm sure that makes for some good decision making, right? The tattoo artist is named Spider. Of course he is.


When I say there are lots of bikes, I use the term liberally. Some of the "bikes" are customized so much they hardly look like motorcycles any more.




I hooked up with the WAPL contest winners, Bob and Janet Boehnlein of Brothertown. Nice folks who are really enjoying the trip...especially the Harley Ultra they get to use for the week from Harley Davidson of Appleton. It's their first Sturgis experience and they're loving it. We took in the sights at the famous Knuckle Saloon and they tagged along for some of the broadcast later on Main.

I'm going to miss this place...until next year's 75th Annual Bike Rally. It's going to be twice as nuts.
Ah, Sturgis. Where even the mannequins give it all they've got.

Thursday's weather was much nicer. Took a scenic route to Deadwood (there isn't really another) and set up shop at the Lucas Oil Road House party. The boys in Unity the Band from back home were the host band. Bassist Tim Perkins gave some lessons on his instrument to the bikini bike wash girls.

The rest of the band did, too.

I asked a local guy what it's like in Sturgis in, say, March when no bike rally is going on. He said, "You could set off a bomb downtown in March and  police wouldn't get to it until April."  The whole area lives off the rally. I reminded him that, in a very real sense, it lives off Milwaukee. As in the Milwaukee iron which drives everything here.
One of the saddest things I've seen here is the dude who fell down and got some drunk rash. No worries, just use a sandwich size baggie, some duct AND masking tape and you've got a Sturgis bandage. But really, man, don't show it off. Put on your shirt. Look closely and you can see his handiwork.

I ordered some Chinese food delivery tonight at the hotel. Worst ever. Cashew chicken was a few nuts, some questionably textured chicken and a bowlful of what I call salt gravy.
Tomorrow I'm headed for downtown Sturgis for the annual WAPL live broadcast walkabout. My backpack radio unit, a butt load of cool bikes, a handful of naked painted ladies and it promises to be interesting on the Road Show from 3-5 Friday.
Until then, I leave you with another shot of Patty and Casey at Full Throttle Saloon. I'm told they got quite popular when I posted a different picture on the 105-7 WAPL Facebook page.
