We have three Dicks of the Week, since we completely forgot to name one last time. Our first Dick Award goes to the Heene family, otherwise known as the Balloon Boy family.



Our second award goes to the jackass judge in Louisiana who refused to marry an interracial couple, and our third award goes to the Wendy's district manager who had some odd priorities.


Our brand-new segment is called Notes from the Looney Bin and looks at some of the crazier things that right-wing types have put up on the Twitter machine.


We close the show with a brand-new single that our friend, IreneB, just sent to us. its called Dedicated and its from her Metamorphosis CD.


That's it for now. Thanks for listening!
