I BUTCHERED THE NAME, but who is this? 

That is one funny, funny call.  All time great call. 

The replay show, 6-13-08.

Holy cow, that is good.

It's Mehmet Okur (originally from 6/28/05). I'm not sure, but I believe it's tonight's special guest Jon Glaser.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

That is completely nuts. 

I pick saved ones now and then and re-listen to them (as I'm sure we all do at times) and this one came up. 

GREAT episode.  Just great.  The movie quotes are wonderful. 

That character is wonderful.  Very....uh....nice, actually.  Congenial. 

Okay!

"Mamet Occur" is some awesome butchering work.

If I'm not mistaken, he makes at least one other call to the show. He and Skag Winesack are among the callers that I wish would come back, if only for one night.

Was Glaser Woodsy? He's one of my favorite one-time callers.

I do what I can! 

That call, seriously, was golden.  It comes out of NOWHERE too. 

There is so much that I miss the 1st time through an episode, and the beauty of that call certainly didn't hit right away. 

Can't wait for this week's podcast.

Glaser - Jon Glaser introduces him, then steps away, then Mehmet starts talking.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

When I first heard this call, I thought it was real for about thirty seconds.  Those were thirty awesome seconds.

That's right! The second call is sheer beauty. I know what I'm doing this afternoon whilst I enter crap into a database.

Does anyone know why Jon Ben doesn't do more calls? Everytime I see a rerun of Home Movies I feel the need for a S. Ice...
