The Fat Man Punches the Skinny Man

While Ken vacations and Andy couldn't care less, Professor Dum Dum filled in for today's show. For us diehard fans, Ken made the infamous cub scout show available here (RealAudio) and here (MP3). If you enjoy hearing impressions made upon the young and impressionable, fart sounds, mmmbop, and Ken called a Barbie, this is the show for you.

Andy: Hey, do you think the five of you together could beat the crap out of Ken?
Webelos: Yeah!

One wonders what kind of Lord of the Flies crap occured after the show. Hard to believe, but these little kids are now of voting age. Pure unadulterated funny. LEAVE, LEAVE, LEAVE.

What was so terrible about that show? All the controversy and it ends up being an adorable exercise in adorability.

Alex = Arnon?? How many kids can have a voice like that?

SueB said...

That was one of the best shows i've heard!!

I thought Ken said Andy had made one of them cry, but they were all cool - if not the most squeaky-clean image the BSA would like to project.

I don't get why ken ranked it so low.

Maybe there was some background info we don't know about. Like maybe they refused to leave and andy pulled them out kicking and screaming? That would be a good reason to always think it was a bad experience.


Where is that Corey now?

Aaron said...

Clearly Ken didn't like it because of the award-winning play "Fat Man punches Skinny Man."

There's a great many mysteries surrounding some 7SD episodes. For instances: What got censored in the archive of the "Perfect Murder" show?

it was not horrible at all, i mean the only annoying part was the loud kids but it was funny as hell.

Lorne said...

This was a most enjoyable episode. Thanks for making it available, Ken!

Wasn't the deal with The Perfect Murder the concern that some humourless law officials might make life difficult for 'FMU - not likely, but possible?

One week when Ken is out, Andy should do a show with Professor Dum Dum. I propose they call it Dum and Dumber.

robin.g said...

We never did find out why Andy calls Garrison Keillor "Little Toot."

I can't believe all the posts about how this show was not awful. If the squealing of 12 year old kids doesn't start to grate on you after a while you're a more tolerant person than I am. Plus Andy seemed to be ENJOYING it since he knew how annoying it must have been to the listeners.

That said "LEAVE LEAVE LEAVE" was funny.

The tug of war show was much better. Any show that ends up with Andy moaning in despair is a winner.

SueB said...

I am a mom. Kid squealing doesn't bother me. Those kids had personality. When does Ken explain 'why' this is a lost episode.

listener gbr said...

I for one cant understand why this show has been labelled as a trainwreck. I thought it was one of the better ones, a great display of funny- and cuteness.

chad said...

Not a bad show at all! And it was illuminating on one point. I used to think Andy's sense of humor stopped developing somewhere in his high school years. But when I heard how well he fit in with those cub scouts, I realized it must have frozen when he was about 10.

Listener Vin said...

Not the worst show ever, but I agree screaming kids do grate. But I will happily say it was the worst show ever if Andrea will send me 5 million dollars or a house in Malibu.

omg, super funny
I think the bad part is Andy teaching the kids how to cheat by redefining the conditions for the badges. Oh, and how he encourages them to be rude to neighbors.

There must be some way to track the kids down and do a follow up show with them on it.

Unless they are all in jail.

That brings to mind: plz 2 re-air the other show with Arnon or do a new with the kid (now in his teenage or twenage years?)

Station Manager Ken said...

Glad *most* of you liked the show. As I listened to it, I was amazed that it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was at the time. When all the screaming kids were right in front of me, and I had headphones on to boot, it was a little too painful to bear. But listening back in an environment where I could turn it down from time to time, it was not bad at all.

The "perfect murder" show as censored because there were a batch of jokes related to terrorism and related things and I got worried about people reporting me or Andy to the Department of Homeland Security.
