Police in Oshkosh arrested a 33-year-old woman for running a prostitution operation out of her home while her kid was in school and her husband was at work. She told officers that she used the extra cash she made to pay bills.
At this point, it's unclear as to whether or not the husband knew what was going on when he was away.
Just in case you think your wife may be doing the same thing, we at the Rick and Len offer these: SIGNS YOUR WIFE MIGHT BE A WHORE.
If she wants to rearrange the bedroom to make room for a 50 gallon lube dispenser and a "take a number machine" -- your wife might be a whore.
If a dumpster behind a tire store has less used rubber in it than the wastebasket beside your bed--your wife might be a whore.
If your mattress has been the site of more drilling than the Prudhoe Bay, Alaska Oil Field--your wife might be a whore.
If, while you're at work, your mattress has hosted more foursomes than Augusta National--your wife might be a whore.
If you've found more men in the closet than the Republican party--your wife might be a whore.
If the only thing you've banged in the last several months, is your nuts on the turnstile at your bedroom door--your wife might be a whore.
If she has Hugh Grant's photo on her wall, Eliot Spitzer's credit card on her night stand and Charlie Sheen's handprint on her ass--your wife might be a whore.
If you've found unexplained deposits in both her checking account and your bed--your wife is definitely a whore.

On Tuesday morning's show, we played Guess This. The question was why did the city council of Medina, Ohio have to call an unplanned recess during last month's meeting? The correct answer: members of the council couldn't stop giggling after one of them passed wind.

The Wisconsin Department of Tourism has paid a company $50,000 to come up with a new slogan to promote travel to Wisconsin. For the 50 large, the company came up with "Live life like you mean it!". Great! Except it's the same slogan that Bacardi has been using to sell rum for the last umpteen years!
Last year, when the Department of Tourism folks first mentioned they were hiring a firm to create a new slogan, we put it in the hands of Rick and Len Show listeners. Here's some of our listener's suggestions. Let us know which one/ones you like better than "Live life like you mean it!"
Wisconsin: Illinois charm with Canadian sophistication.

Join the St. Baldrick's Festivities this Sunday at at noon the Crystal Ballroom in the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Fond du Lac or at 11am at St. Brendan's in Green Bay. There will be music, fun and head shaving! Yes, head shaving!
St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Each year, thousands of volunteers across the country shave their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family. You can stop by to watch, to help, to make a donation or to get your head shaved! Almost $30,000 was raised last year at both the Fond du Lac and Green Bay events and they're hoping to top that this year!
People have been e-mailing us asking about the food that was purported to be an aphrodisiac that we served our Lay-cation Game contestents last week. It's called ceviche and God help me, I never thought I''d be putting recipes on this blog but here goes.
Preparation time: 15 minutes to prepare, 6 hours to let sit. Ingredients 2 lbs of firm, fresh red snapper fillets, cut into 1/2 inch pieces, completely deboned 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice 1/2 purple onion, finely diced 1 cup of fresh peeled, seeded, and chopped tomatoes 1 serrano chili, seeded and finely diced 2 teaspoons of salt dash of ground oregano dash of Tabasco or a few grains of cayenne pepper CilantroAvocadoTortillas or tortilla chips
Method 1 In a non-reactive casserole dish, either Pyrex or ceramic, place the fish, onion, tomatoes, chili, salt, Tabasco, and oregano. Cover with lime and lemon juice. Let sit covered in the refrigerator for an hour, then stir, making sure more of the fish gets exposed to the acidic lime and lemon juices. Let sit for several hours, giving time for the flavors to blend.
2 Serve with chopped cilantro and slices of avocado with heated tortillas for ceviche tacos or with tortilla chips.
Optional: Can use shrimp and or scallops as a substitute for some of the fish. Can use a firm cod in place of the red snapper.
