Jonah Hinds is an 11-year-old boy from Van Dyne who has quite literally been given his life back thanks to recent experimental brain surgery at American Family Medical Center in Madison.

Four years ago Jonah (known as Twitchy to family and friends) began suffering from uncontrollable shaking which made it impossible for him to sit through classes at school, services at church or any of what we consider "normal" childhood activities. He was diagnosed with a rare form of Tourette's Syndrome and the answer, at least for now, is deep brain stimulation. He's hooked up to a rechargeable battery that keeps the involuntary muscle movements to a minimum. Thankfully he's doing well but more surgeries will be needed and the Hinds family's insurance company refuses to pay for them.

That's why The Rick and Len Show and some great volunteers are conducting a benefit raffle for Jonah. We have compiled an extensive list of cool prizes, including one-of-a-kind autographed Ted Nugent items, cool electronic gizmos, retail gift cards, prize baskets and more. The prize list is growing daily. Check out a few highlights below.

The prize drawing will be held October 15, 2010 and winning numbers will be posted on this website (

Buy your tickets easily and securely through PayPal by simply clicking on the DONATE button below. Your donation amount will determine how many raffle ticket numbers we will assign. Your numbers will be sent to you via the email address you use when you donate.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week...Jonathan Popple of Baraboo who, according to police, shot a hole through the floor of his home because he was so stoned he thought he was shooting at a space alien from a movie.


For trying to pop a cap in the alien's ass before the alien could put a probe in his.

For apparently being so paranoid he felt he had to stop E.T. before that pencil-necked space monkey ate all his Reese's Pieces.

And for forgoing a close encounter of the 3rd kind in favor of a close encounter of the 4/20th kind.

We are proud to name Jonathon Popple who shot a hole in his floor while trying to shoot a space alien he saw after getting this week’s Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

Head and Shoulders shampoo has reportedly insured the hair of their spokesman, Pittsburgh Steeler Troy Polamalu, with Lloyd's of London for $1,000,000!

Here's some other celebs with insured body parts...

Has insured his testicles for 2 million dollars and can collect should he injure himself tripping over them.

Has insured his eyes for five million dollars. One million for the right one. One million for the left one. And 3 million for the brown one.

Wanted to take out a policy covering the parts of their bodies that best symbolizes their well earned reputation in the national media…however, not even Lloyd’s of London would insure genital herpes.

Has insured his brain cells for one hundred million dollars each. Not because he’s a congressman. But because they’re just that rare.

Has taken out a 6 million dollar policy…one million for every inch of her penis. (Tommy Lee has reportedly also taken out a similar policy for 10 million dollars…and Tom Cruise for a half million dollars).

Has insured his colon for a million dollars which is probably wise given his history of being unable to plug holes once something comes gushing out of them.

Has insured her nose for a million dollars. Not that it’s her trademark or anything. It’s just that’s the approximate value of the coke she has lodged in her septum at any given time.

Has insured his a-hole for 10 million dollars. And he’ll collect only if something happens to his a-hole that prevents it from starting all 16 games at quarterback this season.

We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week...
the engineers at WBAY Channel 2, who must not have been paying much attention last night during their broadcast of the Packers game...because while viewers could see the game, what they heard coming from their TV speakers was the audio from the hit ABC TV series Wipeout.

So, for running sound from Wipeout during a game the Pack won 59 to 24, which I guess could be called inadvertent yet appropriate genius...
For running only the audio from Wipeout when any idiot knows that all you really want from that show is the pictures of Jill Wagner, the totally hot chick who interviews the contestants.

And for pissing off thousands of Packer fans, which tells me that the people at Channel 2 have no knowledge of Packer history...these people will kill your dog, for God's sake.

We are proud to name the engineers at WBAY Channel 2, or whoever was responsible for running the sound from ABC's Wipeout during the broadcast of the Packers-Colts game at Lambeau last night as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week.

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.
