Yes, that def happened, Gregg is not Larr. Maybe start thinking about any friends of Mike that may have been on with a similar timbre?

Mike doesn't have friends.

Larry D's arc on the show has been so freaking epic. It couldn't be contrived. Up until Larry's Thanksgiving message I think he was one of the most totally detested of frequent-callers by most of us (am I wrong?) That's the beauty of the Best Show.
I can hear you judging me.

With all due respect, I think you are wrong.

Seconded.

And count me amongst the "I'd rather not know" group.  Mystery is a good thing.

Hey! Larry had a year long ban and rode it out like a gentleman.

Yeah, I've always been a Larry fan.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Oh, I've always liked Larry's calls. Even the 'I wanted to wish you and Michael a happy summer, dere' calls.

Larry's been callin' as much as I've been listenin', dere - since the last 6 years.  His calls from, the quick gomps to the Best Show highlights like the phone date with Laurie from Miami and his stoic acceptance of banishment, are some of the reasons why I listen. They harken back to a time of Petey and MC Steinberg, and Woodsy. What's your favorite show on Nickelodeon, dere?

Personally I thought Larry was just weird and awful. Like other unnamed callers: perfect fodder for Tom to Gomp. But he kept on coming--and I thought THAT was the endearing part. Not his calls, per se. His loathesomeness was part of the fun.

I mean I really cringed in the early days. And then he had the date with Laurie, which was pretty funny...and humanized him in a weird way. But suddenly he's become Mr. Sunshine, and a legend--and he's earned it. It was a pure endurance run. That time he checked in, dejectedly but still trooping, after his long ban--that was pretty awesome.

I can hear you judging me.

Unceremoniously stumbled across an early (the first?) 'Larry' call dating back to 2005. Though here he's claiming to be a therapist named Michael.

Show: September 6th, 2005 (the crawl back from Sirius)
The call comes in at 1hr 16min and 35seconds.

I liked Ted's Christmas Donkey song. It sounded better this time around as opposed to when he did it a few years back when Christmas was on Tuesday. That version bummed me out. I also liked John Roderick calling Ted "Leo" and then "Leonard."
I wish Jodi V.B. would get some mic time, but I guess that's why she's a Secret Star.

Re John McCain and the hot dog vending machine: According to the linked article (dated Feb 09), it was apparently sitting there for more than a year before opening for business.  (A picture of the machine is attached.)

I seem to recall that John McCain was busy for most of 2008, but he's been back for almost three years.  No excuse.

The hot dog machine - a job destroyer, not a job creator.

If you're not a job creator, you better step the fuck away from that hot dog machine.
