This was one of the best Best Shows ever.  EVER. 

"Mike hates Jews?" 

!!!

The Wurster calls were incredible. 

THIS WAS CLASSIC.

Oh God.  I finally just heard the last few minutes, where I was specifically cited by Tom as giving him reasons in two separate threads to stop doing the show. Thumbs down, Self, thumbs down.

However: He didn't read far enough into the "Tom's Favorite Movies" thread to see where I confessed to purposefully lying about the Preston Sturges movies' belonging there.  And it's OK for him to say now that he likes the Sturges movies just fine, but I just listened to the second "Favorite Movie Quote" show, where he told a caller that those movies were "bad and poorly written."  Now I'm beginning to feel a little badly done by.

The Garrison Keillor rant was top flight.

(After talking about Prairie Home Companion for several minutes:) "You're a hundred now, it's not our fault!...You were young once, you're not any more, it's OK!...I'll do that show.  I'll do Horse Radio--What's it called?  Prairie Home Companion?  For some reason I thought it had 'horse' in the title...Is one of the characters a horse or something?"

By the way, am I the only one who noticed Spike sneaking in "Lovey" again as an apellation for Tom? It was right while Tom was getting exercised about something else, so he took no time to react---Man, that Spike dude is crafty.

Being crafty is best under the right circumstances, Pets. Oh yes, I didn't know I hung out with teenagers at record stores in New Bridge.

Best:

- The story of Mike and the birthday cake
- "The porn version of the Flash. The Flesh? is that what you just said, the Flesh?"
- "I saw them go that way, robots!"
- Paul F. Tompkins laughing at "that old bat"
- The Bossk wedding bit
- "If peeves were pets I'd be an animal hoarder."
When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to be a Ghostbuster or a shark. True story

Put it in the books: March 29, 2011 was an inside-the-park grand-slam home run.

3 hours of consistent funny and incredible callers.

Well done FOTs!

Holy crap! I hadn't worked out an accurate mental image. What if for some reason the kid wasn't able to follow the loop?

I haven't listened yet so I don't know whether Greggulator covered this, but this website has some stories about that:

http://www.domainofdeath3.com/actionpark

    "The picture you have up is real and not altered in any way. I used to work there and I rode on it once. Everyone makes it out to be the most insane things action park did but it wasnít that bad. I remember one person getting stuck in the tube because instread of riding down with her feet crossed and arms folded across her chest she put them out and braked then didnít have the speed to get around. That is why they built the hatch at the bottom of the slope (not the top of the loop as the wikipedia article suggests).

    "A few people did similar things or for some other reason did not get sufficient speed and they landed face first on the inside of the top of the loop. One person injured his two upper front teeth when he did this and had them dig into the soft lining (it was like wrestling mat material). The biggest problem is that sand and dirt and such would collect at the botton of the loop and the people would start comming out with abrasions over their entire backs. Then they would have to close it down and clean it out. I believe (and I could be wrong about this) that what finally closed it down was that after it was open for a short while an insurance adjuster finally came around to look at it and went ballistic."

Also:

   "I remember another latin man and his young son doing it when I was doing it. The man had no problems, but his son who was very young, and very brave, got stuck in the tube. He looked about 10 years old and was too light to build the momentum needed to make it all the way around the loop.I remember wondering how they were going to get him out. They opened a trap door at the bottom of the loop. It took several minutes to get him out, he looked a little shook up but otherwise fine. My friends and I went to go on other rides and later in the day I went to go on it again, but they had closed it 'for the day'"

Action Park looks so freakin bootlegged. The amount of grass and dirt makes it look less like a water park and more like the backyard of someones vacation house by the river.



Here is what I grew up with. It was bright, clean and you never had to walk in dirt: http://www.splashtownpark.com/

Indeed! Great job everyone!! There were so many good callers last night that I can't even keep track, so I'm just posting this here. I hope first time caller Sara in Brooklyn (?)-- finds her way to FOTdom.
