It’s that time again boys and girls… time for the Who Asked You? Halloween show. This year’s pun on our name continues a 4-year tradition of play-on-words fun. Someday, I feel I may run out of rhymes and whimsical word replacements, lets prey that day never comes. Speaking of 4-years… it’s our 4th Anniversary!!! Nothing special was planned for this episode since it was already our Halloween edition. But I’m thinking we’ll do something extra fun for our 5th. Suggestions always welcomed!
Our ghost story of a program starts with the usuals. Our Calendar segment seems to be settling in nicely and there’s even a few Halloween-related celebrations mentioned. And an E-Mail from a self-proclaimed “Dickhead Dentist” warns us and our listeners of the perils of brushing one’s teef with abrasive materials like baking soda. You may remember last week’s show when another listener signed of his E-Mail to us with a reminder of good oral care. The subsequent conversation included other options for cleaning your choppers outside of boring ol’ tooth paste.
In honor of our Halloween show we suddenly become possessed — because we can do that on-command you know — and the entire New Releases are discussed in demonic voices that’ll creep you out and that cost us $40,000. So be creeped out damn it!
You know what else our haunted hilarity brings forth? The terrifying news that Fred Durst is getting a sitcom. Cue woman screaming effect. It appears Durst will play an aging rock star who has to balance his fame and family. And get this, the working title for this “Limp” Bizkit is DOUCHEBAG. Fred Durst… starring… and co-producing a show… called DOUCHEBAG? You can’t tell me he doesn’t realize peoples’ view of him. This is marketing genius?
And if you’re still undecided about what you wanna dress up as this year. Maybe we can help. We’ve got a list of the most popular costumes for 2011 as well as one of those you should avoid. In anycase, you probably don’t want to dress up as any of these, because they’ll either be so popular someone else at the party is wearing it too or it’ll be lame and/or in bad taste. One of the costumes, Anthony Weiner, made both lists!
Our ghost story-of-a-show doesn’t end there. This is no trick, it’s a treat for all of us. TRANSFORMERS star, Shia LaBeouf got beat up outside of a bar in Vancouver after drinking heavily and being an asshole. Not to say the other guy wasn’t an asshole too… but as we look back at some of Shia’s previous offenses, it’s clear he’s ‘transforms” into a mean drunk.
On Halloween you can’t just be scared… you have to be grossed out too. That’s why we bring you another edition of Jenkem Watch! This time around, an Irish guy tries to get stinkin’ rich by performing a little alchemy. And a study out of England found something gross on British cell phones. You know the segment, you know what they found on them. We pinch off the numbers and tell you how many shitty phones there are in Great Britain.
And lastly, an old man knocking on doors was ‘tricking’ ladies and getting a ‘treat’ out of it. You’ll have to tune in to hear this, the conclusion to our hour-long ghoulish tale.
Limp Bizkit’s Official Website – Yeah, they have one. I was surprised too.

After the fumbling awkward start of the show passes and the stream returns to normal the show officially gets going. There are 2 E-Mails from our loyal listeners this week. The first, what we wish was a trick, informs us, or rather Charlie, of the newly released photos of the Green Lantern’s Power Battery. The link to see it is in the Show Links. It looks stupid. But sadly, it is not a trick. The other E-Mail is a real treat, I have it on good authority that it’s author was inebriated when he wrote it. Spelling errors aside, he poses some good Halloween questions to us including what costumes we came dressed in for the show.
And on that costume note, we’ve got some dress up-suggestions and advice for you! Continuing to cash in on his instant fame, Antoine Dodson, the flamboyant sound byte-giver on rapists breaking into apartments, now has his own Halloween costume. It’s called the “Bed Intruder Costume” and you can pick it up for around $25.
That would be an awesome costume to wear to a party, or dress your kid up in. But there are some disguises that are just plain wrong. Even for small children too young to know they’re being humiliated by the folks. The list-masters over at TopTenz.net came up with the top-10 most embarrassing costumes for kids. We rundown 5 of them as a caution to all you parents out there. Have some respect for your kids. The entire list is in the Show Links.
We also attempt to gross you out by telling you about a dude who sticks a needle in his eye. A guy named Matt Gone could be the most tattooed person on Earth. And just when we think he’s run out of space, he proves us wrong by inking his eyeballs, himself! Using a pretty gnarly needle Gone has injected blue colored ink into the white areas of his eyes. Again… he did this himself, looking into a mirror. Apparently the ink is moving around in the eye and could turn the who thing blue! He’s got pictures of all of his tattoos… from head to toe, including the latest ones he’s been ‘eyeing’ on his website.
And since “Boo Fact You?” went away with “Boo Asked You?” our round of 10 terrifying factoids had to be mediocrely renamed to “Who Spooked You?”. And this year it’s not just facts about the Halloween holiday, it’s eerie, creepy, strange and gross facts that should have you more uncomfortable than the Pedobear episode.
This show seems to be full of lists. We’ve also got 5 of the most obscure phobias out there. They include a fear of string and specific relatives. In the Show Links we have a site that contains an enormous list of just about every phobia out there. If you decide to read any of it and come across one even more strange than these, by all means, E-Mail it to us with your thoughts on it.
Finally the last half-hour of the show is a stretch. Literally… we’re once again stretching just like at the start. This time though, it’s because we run out of planned material. It happens. Sometimes we make it all the way through the show’s rundown. And in cases like this, it’s not nearly as satisfying as you’d think. At least, not when you still have 30 minutes to fill! But, if there is one thing we have proven time and time again on this program, it’s that we can talk uninterrupted about nonsense and still make it entertaining. It’s the backbone of our show for Christ sake! We better be good at it. The filler is filled with talk of the now defunct relationship between Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff. And since it is the Halloween show, gets back into that mode with â€” here comes more lists â€” our top 5 scary movie favorites and some random scary video game classics we enjoy as well. Happy Halloween!

CLICK HERE to send us your Halloween song suggestions and your tales of terror on All Hallow Eves past.
It’s a creepy show we have today. We’ve got an E-Mail from Dr. Frankestein’s assistant, Igor. He wonders about our favorite Halloween candy and costumes when we were kids. Did you know Halloween accounts for roughly two-thirds of candy sales each year? And given that we’re all bottomless pits you can bet we rattle off a nice list of our favorite goodies. Feel free to buy them as well and send them to us. It’ll be a Halloween and anniversary gift in one… that we can eat! Can’t get any better than that.
After the E-Mail we head into spooky new releases. Many of them this week seem like older horror films being released on DVD for the first time. Or cheesy horror films being released straight to DVD. Take a look at the list in the Show Links, maybe there’s one in there you’d like to buy. The further into the list we get, the more horrifying the film.
And since it’s Halloween time why not scare you Star Wars fans with a little rumor about the space adventure franchise. Tune in to hear the frightening details. After the last three, could it get any worse? Decide for yourself after hearing it on the show, then tell us in this week’s “We Ask You” Online Poll.
We continue running the Halloween thing into the ground with Booo Facted You?. Ten glorious factoids about our scary little holiday. Including the various colors pumpkins are available in, when Igor first appeared on film and what’s the most popular Halloween candy.
And it wouldn’t be an All Hallows Eve show without some costume news. One of the costumes is a sign of the times and is getting blown way out of proportion. While the other is a sign of how lame cable news networks have become, but is funny as shit! It’s the ultimate current events costume since someone showing up in a prison jumpsuit with a stuffed dog in a fishing net claiming to be Michael Vick.
Why not end the show with what could end humanity… a zombie attack. It seems a university in Florida had a contingency plan for the staff in the event the undead walked the Earth and attacked their campus. It was all in good fun. But the sticks in the mud, also known as management, weren’t having it and the documents have since been removed and have vanished into the unknown.
We cover it all today from more on creepy crawly spiders giving you a boner to Dennis’ ninja costume he wore too many times and it stopped fitting. Turn out the lights, crank up your volume and… surf the web while you play us in the background. Happy Halloween!!!
