Jene got a colonoscopy recently (they’re recommended for people 40 and over, and Jene’s finally made it), and he got a weird question before the procedure by the attending nurse.We do a quick update of the Rock Jerry’s Face movement and wonder how we can shut it down. Jerry recently did media hits for his new show. We’ll ask about it.Have any of you seen the PBS documentary, which ran again last week during their fund drive, called “Alone in the Wilderness?”Jerry’s rant: Nancy Pelosi Says Donald Trump Isn’t Worth Impeaching Because it Could Be Too “Divisive”.And changing things up a bit, this week we have Comedian Zach Wycuff. Funny guy.https://www.rooftoppro.com/artists/ZacharyWycuff
We open with the playing of the Elevator Comics commercial.Jerry and Jene describe how we’re now reduced to performing our elevator comic routine with tip jars in the corners of elevators since hotels have all dropped our contracts. But then to add to our misery, while rogue busking in a 5 star in NYC, we got heckled by a woman on one of our elevator rides. While in Jerry’s old neighborhood, Kew Gardens, in Queens, we saw with our wives a commemorative plaque for Rodney Dangerfield, who also grew up there (a friend of Jerry’s). Why is there not one for Jerry? Jene says clearly Jerry might have to pose for the mountain sculptors on the mountain daily as they chisel his face in Rushmore. , Since Maria’s a skilled rock climber, she will be on the rock face with Jerry to calm him with songs and bring him his lunches.Jerry’s rant: Coast Guard, White Supremacy officer planned terrorist attack.Musical guest: Palamarahttps://palamara.bandcamp.com/music
We open with a commercial from the Rock Jerry’s Face group promoting getting his likeness chiseled onto the rock of Mt. Rushmore.
Then Jene explains that the Rock Jerry’s Face movement is getting out of control. Jene, though he isn’t driving this, is figuring out whom to contact at the National Park Service concerning the process for adding the face of another American leader. Jene then reads two emails from listeners, one supporting the cause, another blistering the idea.
Jerry’s still concerned that folks will think they should throw rocks at his face.
Then Jerry offers his take on whether President Trump could somehow still get off the hook once the Mueller Report is released. He’s pretty sure it will be made public, but Trump’s history shows him getting away with a lot of ‘stuff’.
Jene offers an update on the ‘Rock Jerry’s Face’ movement.
We discuss the request from the Queen City Balladeers (oldest folk music organization in Cincinnati) to have us (Jerry, Jene, Maria and Casey) perform as a formal group at an upcoming Sunday night at Leo Coffee House. What do we all think?
Jene says that the recent death of his mother in law spawned thoughts about whether he should be buried, cremated or to donate his remains to science. And if cremated, where should his ashes be spread, I know all of our deaths are many lifetimes away, but it’s never too early to ponder the green solution to our mortal remains.
Jerry’s rant: Will the democratic socialists movement grow in the democratic party, and should it?
Musical guest: Black Mountain Throwdown
OMG, a website is up (rockjerrysface.com) where people are signing a petition to put Jerry’s face on the rock of Mt. Rushmore. We discuss.
The idea of Judge Jerry officiating marriages is catching on, as is the concept of people coming before him to renew their marriage vowels. Jene and Bonnie would like to get on the list. Unfortunately, Bonnie doesn’t usually come to podcasts, so is it possible to do it over Facebook Live or on the phone? And will Jerry’s role in this be as effective as when he once filed a legal land deed for Jene and Bonnie in Clermont County, Ohio?
Jerry’s rant: The Virginia blackface scandal.
Musical guest: Black Mountain Throwdown
Email from Charlott Fanning, from Laramie, Wyoming, who is starting a group with a crowd funding website to lobby for and pay for adding Jerry’s head to Mount Rushmore.
Jerry recalls his motorcycle days where again, he was special having three wheels instead of just two.
Can we have an official swearing in of Jerry as judge, right here on our show? And since we’re now calling Jerry, Judge Jerry, can Jene be his bailiff on our show? Then what should his new uniform be? Should it be like Fidel’s, more of a “field” look. Or like, say, Saddam’s, with lots of medals and ribbons?
Jerry’s rant: Jerry’s take on the longest government shutdown in history.
Jerry’s enjoying his new notoriety as “Judge Jerry”. Sadly, passing out cards at the funeral of Jene’s mother in law might not have been the best decision.
Jene talks with Jerry and Maria about a fantastic new restaurant in Augusta, Kentucky. (There are music possibilities there in association with our podcast.)
Who would like to be the first couple Jerry marries when he becomes a judge? Let’s do it on our show!!! (Surely mediator certification allows you to marry couples.) Maria, would you like to marry someone real soon and have Jerry officiate over your wedding?
Jerry’s rant: Former Starbucks CEO considers presidential run. Because we really need another billionaire to run our country.
Jerry’s getting batting lessons for his grandson, Richard. Of course, this is no ordinary instructor. The instructor played baseball professionally in the minor leagues for years.
Jene’s excited about a project to digitally map the Ohio River from Marietta to Louisville. There will be cyclists and paddlers involved, and they want to mark landmarks,restaurants,campgrounds and the like, so folks remember what a great resource the Ohio River is for travel. Not a bad idea since we don’t see riverboats these days.
Jerry’s goes off on Iowa Congressman Steve King after his recent remarks about ‘white power’. Is he a racist? Jerry says, ‘Yes, Steve King is a racist’ and explains why his positions are untenable.
Our musical guest is the incredibly talented and our own, Maria Carrelli!
