What a diverse, multi-cultural, multi-lifestyle show we have for you today. We start in the south where a rapper named Krispy Kreme is making his way around YouTube. We play some of his music and debate whether he’s for real, or just messin’ with everyone. I’m the only one in the group who believes he’s putting on an act. You can judge for yourself when you hear his mad rhymes done with a southern drawl.
For the first time in our history, Charlie wore shorts to the program. He had just come from an LGBT pool party at the Luxor and was introduced to a rather revealing type of swimwear. I’ll let him explain it. Charlie went with his friend Will, who’s sat in on the show before. He’s the musician known as wonkknow. Although straight, Charlie said he had a really good time. He added everyone was really nice… and in shape.
Then we’re off to Colorado where a white second grade student was assigned a project on Martin Luther King Jr. and decided to dress up as the civil rights leader. The problem… he wore black face. A staff member at the school was offended and complained and the boy was asked to leave. Both he and his parents couldn’t understand why. The school kept saying students were also offended, but the complaint doesn’t mention them. Just that staffer. This is a tough one. Clearly the boy didn’t mean any disrespect. He wanted to dress up for the assignment and his parents just wanted him to get a good grade. Should they have known better? Being a small child, does he need to know the significance of black face? Should the teacher have known better than to assign this to him? Was it appropriate under these cercumstances? There are a shit ton of questions here. We’d love your opinion on the matter as well. Cast your vote on the We Ask You Poll and send us an E-Mail with your thoughts for next week’s show.
For those who have an active lifestyle at night, you may wanna hear this next story. A new app designed to help you find an age and gender appropriate bar is being tested out in San Francisco. The watering hole installs a camera that takes your picture as you enter the door. It uses sophisticated software algorithms known as ‘biometrics’ to determine your gender and age just by measuring different distances on your face. It then beams that data to any smartphone with the app installed. You can then look and see if your favorite bar is full of dudes or has just the right balance of sexes and whether or not the majority of them are your age. Accusations of privacy violations are already flying. The makers say no personal data is stored. But, this is just the beginning. With facial recognition software, this could quickly change.
Finally, we do a little multi-cultural dining at the Who Asked You? Cafe. Starting off in Naples, Italy where police there believe an underground coffin-theft ring is in the works. Pizzerias are apparently buying dug up wooden coffins and using them to fuel their pizza ovens. Now, if you’ve ever had wood fired pizza, you know it’s damn tasty. But pizza cooked on moldy wood with the scent of rotting corpse on it?
I’d rather eat that I suppose than this next dish. To Tokyo, Japan we go were a popular chef there who suffers from gender identity issues not only had his package removed, but he also cooked it and served it to five crazy fucking wackos who paid him $250 a plate! We were once told by comedian, Clayton Fletcher that we talk about dicks a lot… this conversation is no exception. If you’re curious about this (the story, not the actual taste of cooked human penis) you can read about it and see pictures of the dish in the Show Links.
So there you have, a deep south white rapper, gay pool parties, black face, authentic dead body-smoked pizzas and literal dick eating.
