This week, area law enforcement authorities addressed concerns about a report that came out back in Novemeber that claimed that northeast Wisconsin was a hotbed of "gang activitiy". Are they kidding? Perhaps they're not familiar with these active area gangs.
RECENT AREA GANG ACTIVITY
The Menasha Polish Kings. Federal investigators believe that over the last 9 years they have been responsible for at least a half dozen "sudsings" of the downtown fountain.
The Little Chute Dutch Disciples. Have been known to enter public buildings in large, unruly groups and surreptitiously scuff their floors by traipsing across them while wearing their bad-ass wooden shoes.
The blood enemies of the Dutch Disciples, the Kaukauna Cripes. Cripes hey, they can be recognized by the distinctive clothes pins they wear on their noses. While they have yet to commit a serious crime, undercover members of the Heart of the Valley Gang Taskforce have it on good authority that the members have been stealing old ratty underwear from people's garbage and storing it with the intent of sneaking into Little Chute and hanging it from the windmill should the windmill ever actually get built.
The Oshkosh area chapter of the Knights of Columbus. During last year's presidential campaign, this gang of middle aged catholic men stole Obama yard signs from outside three different homes before feeling guilty and returning them before anybody noticed.
The Shiocton Farm Boys. Federal authorities believe they are responsible for as many as 63% of all Outagamie County cow tippings since 1997.
Troop 541 of the Girl Scouts of America based in Sobiske. The Brown County Gang Enforcement Division have identified them as being responsible for dozens of sightings of members wearing their distinctive Kelly green colors while ringing area doorbells, armed with Thin Mints, Carmel Delights and Do Si Dos and threatening the diets of god fearing area residents.
The Fond du Lac Yellow River Mafia. These notoriously weak bladdered miscreants don't spray paint gang signs on buildings but rather, have their own means of marking their territory on sidewalks throughout the downtown. The infamous Puddles McCoy was ousted from his leadership position last year after a sex scandal that erupted within the gangs ranks after McCoy's name was left on Portland Avenue written in his own urine but in another male gang member's handwriting.

Just a note of thanks to everyone who expressed support during the tense moments following the Rick and Len Show's Shamwow experiment last week. As it turns out, I didn't get fired after all. But it seems that some of you like me...you really really like me...and that's cool. To those who expressed joy over the prospect of a WAPL without Len (and there are more than a few of you), I hope you choke on your Shamwow. Until the next time we pull a stupid stunt, and rest assured there will be a next time, it's still the Rick AND Len show.
This has simply got to be one of the most dumbass stunts I have ever heard anyone try. I mean, you guys even said before the whole debacle what a stupid idea it was, how expensive the equipment was, and what the repercussions might be. But you went and did it anyway. I'll bet when you were kids you guys ran around in the middle of the street half-naked with a pair of scissors in one hand and a bb-gun in the other.
By the way.... I TOTALLY LOVED IT!! This is entertainment at it's best. You can't BUY publicity like this. This is the most hair-brained stunt in the universe and I'm still laughing my ass off about it. Heck, I've told all my friends and my wife to listen to this. Dang. I only wish you had videotaped the whole thing. You guys still need to be spanked and made to stand in the corner, but man, I hope they don't can you. This was funny.
We know the most pressing question facing you this nasty Wisconsin winter is "Should I buy the original blanket with sleeves, the Slanket, or settle for it's cheaper imitation, the Snuggie"? Perhaps you need the WTF Blanket!
Last Comic Standing semi-finalist and Northern Wisconsin's own Mary Mack joins Rick in the studio Friday morning (1.29) Make your reservations to see Mary at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton Thursday, Friday or Saturday night.
I just want to thank rick and len for the public service of real live test of the sham wow. I now realize that I could buy $20 worth of paper towels that get the same outcome as one sham wow. Thanks rick and len.
On Wednesday, Rick and Len decided to put to the test the absorbent powers of the ShamWow, that product you see advertised on TV all the time. At press time, disciplinary actions are still under consideration for your favorite radio duo. Stay tuned. To hear what caused all the ruckus...and the big mess, click here.

Longtime friend of the Rick and Len Show, Bil Dwyer will join us in the studio Friday morning (1.23). You've probably seen Bil on the Tonight Show, on his own Comedy Central Special, on any one of the umpteen VH1 I Love the... shows or as the host of Battlebots.
Bil is appearing this week at the Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton. Make your reservations by calling 920-734-JOKE!
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?
