I watched about nine hours of inauguration coverage on Tuesday. Nine hours of watching the peaceful transfer of power that sets the U.S. of A apart from so many other countries. Nine hours of seeing our great nation, it's history and it's system of government celebrated from all to see. Nine hours of unrelenting American pride. And for all this, the one thing that will stay with me is that when Aretha Franklin sang My Country Tis of Thee, she chose the middle of the word "country" to put a pregnant pause. It makes me wonder two things. 1. What is wrong with Aretha? and 2. What is wrong with me?

INAUGURATION DAY DRINKING GAME

Every time they show Joe Biden: take a shot, until your eyes are so out of focus his hair plug look totally natural.

Every time they show Vice President Cheney: drink three shots, one for each of the 6’s on his head.

If Cheney is sitting in his new wheelchair and is actually smiling: drink shots until you have more trouble walking than he does.

If they show Bill and Hillary acting like they actually love each other: drink something that will taste just as good coming back up and it was going down.

Every time they show President Bush looking as confused as a hungry baby in topless bar: drink a glass of warm milk.

If the station you’re watching shows a close-up of the press corps: start drinking brews until your beer goggles are so thick you’d bang Helen Thomas.

Every time MS-NBC shows a shot of Keith Olbermann or Chris Matthews, take a drink: of anything. Just to take your eyes off the TV long enough so you don’t find yourself looking at their very noticeable Obama boners.

If outgoing Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice gets caught up in the spirit of “change” and decides to use the occasion to finally “come out” by snaking her tongue down Cheney’s lesbian daughter’s throat. Like them, enjoy the licker of your choice.

Every time Obama says the word “change” during his speech: DO NOT DRINK!!! We’re not trying to kill people here. If you took even just a sip every time he said the “c” word, you’d die. Seriously. Even if you only drank water, you will drown!

And if, following President Obama’s speech, you find yourself glowing with optimism, certain that all the problems of the last 8 years are about to magically disappear and all will be right with the world: drink a case of Red Bull You gotta wake up, man! You are dreaming!

Well, one administration comes to an end and another begins. They say the Obama inauguration will cost about 45 million dollars. While that all comes from donations, I still can't help but think that there are a lot better ways to spend that kind of jing. Face it, 45 mill is more than just spare change that we can believe in!

Join us for the Rick adn Len Show Tuesday morning for your Inauguration speech drinking game!

Until then, enjoy the Late Show's look back at 8 years of Great Moments in Presidential Speeches!

How amazing was the story of flight 1549? The pilot lands the disabled plane in the Hudson River and not one casualty! Well done, sir! As a public service, here's some signs to look for before you fly to make sure you're not on an unsafe plane.

If the hinges on the door are so loose, they’ve been mistaken for members of the Hilton family: you might be flying on an unsafe plane.

If even before take-off, the air traffic controllers are betting on where officials will find the black box: you might be flying on an unsafe plane.

If the cockpit windshield has more cracks than a plumbers’ convention: you might be flying on an unsafe plane.

If the safety demonstration is 10 seconds of how to properly fasten your seatbelt, 10 seconds of how to properly use the oxygen mask and 10 minutes on how to properly make the sign of the cross: you might be flying on an unsafe plane.

If the flight attendant couldn’t look more terrified if she was receiving a private knife demonstration for O.J: you might be flying on an unsafe plane.

If the alligator whose skin was used to make your expensive luggage has a better chance of arriving at your destination in one piece than you do: you’re definitely flying on an unsafe plane.

What a tough week? How does one decide who is more deserving of Weenie of the Week? Administrators in Brillion and Valders who didn't cancel school in 40 below zero wind chills. Or, is whomever decided to just delay classes by 2 hours in Laona even worse? What did they think Laona was going to have an isolated heat wave after 10am?

And how do either of those decision makers stack up against the jackasses who ran down the deer with their snowmobiles in Waupaca County? Or the other jackass on a snowmobile who ran over and killed 57 duck in Fond du Lac.

Both the snowmobilers and the school administrators are deserving but for such very, very different reasons. Join us Friday morning between 6 and 10 to find out who has earned the distinction of being this week's Rick and Len...WEENIE (or WEENIES) OF THE WEEK!

Did you catch this guy singing a song about a banana on American Idol? I'm not sure what that was all about, but I'd be willing to bet you 50 bucks it gave Ryan Seacrest a boner!

I'm a sophomore at Brillion High School, and I have to say, I appreciate the nomination of our administrators for Weenie of the Week!
We used all of our 3 free snow days before the end of December, and 2 of them weren't even needed. So we all thought, okay, well, maybe they just don't want to use them up. That's still completely ridiculous. God forbid a bus or someone's car would break down, anyone could get frost-bite within 15 minutes. Sorry, but I'd rather make up one day in the summer than see over 100 students in the district get frost-bite.
As if that weren't bad enough, rumor is that Superintendent Madison is allowing one more free snow day since we DID use them all up before December's end. That's not completely relevant though, as it is JUST a rumor.

As for the idiots who ran down those deer, or the people who killed those ducks, they deserve a title much stronger than Weenie of the Week. But my guess is, "Most repulsive and disgusting human being of the year" isn't a title you offer.

Len had a bit of tummy trouble on Tuesday. He went home early, had a puke and a nap and was back Wednesday morning. As we all know, vomit is not a pleasant thing, but the geniuses at the Rick and Len Show think that science could come to the rescue. If you can't treat the illness, treat the vomit. Why doesn't someone come up with a pill or liquid medicine-type thing that would make your puke taste better? Like black cherry, apple, or even beer flavor? Let's get to work people. Someone's gonna make a million off this idea!

The Ashwaubenon woman who tried to pass herself off as her daughter so she could enroll at Ashwaubenon High School was in court this week.

Authorities should have caught on when she used these cheers.

Beat our opponents
They're no friends.
Under my skirt
I’m wearing Depends.

Our team's great!
Your team sucks!
It's hard to cheer
With acid reflux!

Boom boom boom
Bam bam bam
We'll flatten you like
my boob getting a mammogram.

Strike like a cobra
Fly like a swan.
I'll miss this game
Because Matlock's on.

We've got spirit
Yes we do.
I've got to take
Stool softener to poo.

Our team's hot
As fire and ash.
Or maybe I'm having
Another hot flash.

This past weekend Len caught the Vic Ferrari Band in concert with an all-star symphony orchestra at Waverly Beach (the annual Pops and Hops show). It was spectacular! Pink Floyd, Beatles, Queen, Zeppelin and more sound so cool when backed by strings and horns and percussion. You can see the same show Feb. 28 at the Weil Center in Sheboygan, March 7th at the Meyer Theatre in Green Bay and March 14th at Sentry World in Stevens Point. Click here for ticket ordering info.

This past week on the Rick and Len Show we started a new contest. If you missed it, here's how it works. We take the lyrics from a famous rock song and use an internet translation site such as http://www.babelfish.yahoo.com/ to translate them to a foreign language. Then, we use the same site to translate the lyrics back to English. Somewhere along the way, something gets "Lost in the Translation" and ends up as what we call "Rockeltygook".

For instance, here are some of the original lyrics to Highway to Hell:


Living easy, living free.
Season ticket on a one-way ride.
Asking nothing, leave me be.
Taking everything in my stride.
Do not need reason, do not need rhyme.
Nothing I would rather do.
Going down, party time.
My friends are going be there too.
I'm on the highway to hell.

And here's the same lyrics after being translated into Spanish and back into English:

Easy alive, life releases.
Bond of season in a unidirectional stroll.
Not requesting anything, déjeme is.
To take everything in my great step.
It does not need the reason, do not need rhyme.
Nothing that would do something.
Going down, time of the party.
My friendly go are there also.
I' m in the highway to hell.

And after being translated to Greek and back:

Existence easy, existence free.
Ticket of duration in a one way road tour.
Not asking nothing, you leave me they are.
Reception of all in my stride.
Do not need the reason, it does not need the reason.
nothing that I would make rather.
Going under, time of contracting parts.
My friends go are there also.
I' m in the national road in the hell.

On Monday's we'll translate some more lyrics and see if you can guess what song they come from. Don't miss it!

Our 2006 Weenies of the Year are back in the news. You probably remember the 3 guys in southern Wisconsin who, after seeing a picture of an attractive girl in her obituary, tried to dig her up for a little afterlife loving. Now their attorney is claiming the police didn't have "probable cause" to arrest them.

What has happened to this country when 3 guys can't even hang out at the cemetary after-hours armed with a shovel and condoms without getting hasseled by the man?

On the other hand, somebody should have told these guys that no matter how HOT a woman may look in her obituary photo, at best, she's only luke warm by time you dig her up!
