Radio, Bombs, and Iran March 22, 2006

Posted by gordonwatts in politics.

I sometimes listen to the Chicago radio station Q101. I like the music they play (when they aren’t playing too many ads!); but the humor the DJ’s, while good, usually appeals to the more base instincts. But I heard a skit during Fook’s show this afternoon:

Announcer: In a shameless attempt to boost ratings by connecting the nuclear bomb, Iran, and this radio station…

Radio DJ: Who’s there!?

Inspector: I’m from the United Nations Nuclear Bomb Inspection agency here to inspect your music collection! Let me in so I can inspect your music collection!

Radio DJ: I’m very busy right now. Please come back later.

Inspector: Sure! Sure! We will do that! We will come back later! We will come back later!

Radio DJ (after long pause): Could you please get your foot out of the door?

Inspector: Yes! Yes! We will do that!

That is a paraphrase; I wasn’t really paying attention until I realized that I couldn’t guess where the joke was going. I love the foot in the door — exactly what the western world is trying to do! I don’t know what part of Q101 came up with that, but my hat’s off to them! And to Fook for playing it!

Glad you liked it. And we’ll try and get more highbrow for the particle physicists out there.

Sheesh. I guess I come of sounding like an elitist here…

Ha! You’re fine.
