TomPapa: The Movie

 

“The more biting the satire, the narrower the audience…”, a friend of mine taught me that years ago.  I’m thinking 3 people will get the joke, then I realize, there’s really not a JOKE here, it’s just a movie called “Tampopo” and I got a friend on twitter to turn it into “Tompapa”.  It even has his face.   But now it’s just Juzo Itami’s “Tompapa” but without a joke to make it pop.

So.

Make it FUNNY and email it to me (w e i r d m …

The Worst Circumcision Story Ever

I got this on my reddit page today and had to share it with you.   Half-way through I was saying to myself, “this is going to end with his penis sloughing off” but thankfully it has a happy ending with horrific scars instead of a stump.

When I was 19, mid last year I was in a relationship with a girl in North Sumatra, Indonesia and we decided we wanted to get engaged, but her parents told me I need to be circumcised.

In her sect, circumcision is a must and it’s unacceptable to not be …

A Letter from a Listener

I got this email the other day and thought I’d share it with you.  One never knows who is listening, or the impact one is having.   When I got this, I’d had a shitty day at work and this email made it much, much better.

“Hello, I am a Anonymous Physical Therapist from somewhere in the USA. I am a long time listener. I feel that you are providing a great service to the general public in a forum that is non judgmental, educational and entertaining.

I wanted to share a story that you might appreciate.

I work for a home-care company that …

We have a listener who has been battling terminal bladder cancer since 2011. He’s had to try to continue to work just to keep the lights on despite horrific intractable pain, but hasn’t had a full time job since being laid off in 2012. The last tweet I got from him said “i’m already $100 away from being homeless. At this point I long for the relief that death will bring.”

He has no family who can help him, and he’s alone, suffering in a cold house he may be evicted from soon due to back taxes. He has about 30 …

Ask A Prostitute Theme

People have been asking me for the “Ask A Prostitute” theme music. It’s basically an AppleLoop jingle with a vocoder saying “ASK A PROSTITUTE” over and over. If you make it into a ringtone, please let me know how that goes over at work.

Weird Medicine Does Riotcast

Last night we recorded a “very special” Weird Medicine from the RiotCast studio above the Comedy Cellar in the West Village. Thanks to the owner, Noam Dworman for giving us this incredible space to record! Rob Sprance, the co-owner of The Riotcast Network was there and made sure all the technical details were perfect as well as lending his special brand of micrognathic humor to the conversation.

This was a roundtable discussion with guests from RiotCast and XM103. The guest list included the delightful Kristin Montella from “Live From the Table”, “…

An Open Letter to Dr. Steve

I got a note from a listener about his mom and her nightmarish foray into the medical system.  She had a mass that was removed and post surgery retained a lot of fluid (it’s called “third spacing“, feel free to Google it). Anyway, she was getting a bit of the ol’ “run around”, likely due to being told different things by different practitioners on her case (and there were many).  Anyway, I gave her and her son some information and support and moved on.   A week later I got this letter.  Sometimes we don’t know the impact we’re …
