I had to laugh considering I took a break from studying Economics to listen to the show.

Hannibal is the man

Wow. What a great guest. His candor, his cadence, his ...all that. His voice is great. Bring Hannibal back.
On the topic of Eddie Murphy. He should be up there w/ Carlin, Hicks, Pryor, and ...quite honestly...I don't know who else. His performance on RAW and Delirious is...legendary. The best. That being said, this motherfucker doesn't understand how to take a joke??
I am and always will be a fan, however, I fail to understrand why he fucked up his legacy.
I pretend Eddie Murphy died after the 'The Golden Child (Jesus, fuck, he even did GREAT comedy movies! wtf!!) so...i dunno.
Eddie's 48 hrs and Raw still stand up as terrific comedy pieces. Can't we pretend he didn't go the way of Steve Martin? Please??

In my early twenties I worked for Pizza Hut and for a year Pepsico that owns them and KFC etc decided to make the uniforms the same across all their chains. They somehow settled on a horrible shade of green or bright pink as your two options. Delivering pizza in summer to a hot girl I used to go to school with who's wearing denim cut offs and a tank top, while I'm wearing a bright pink shirt and pink hat wasn't the best day I've ever had.

Almost as fun as delivering to horrendously obese people while standing in the rain looking miserable and being told to "cheer up it can't be that bad". I knew when I responded "Oh really? How about you stand out here in the rain while I go inside and eat your pizza" that I wasn't going to be doing that job much longer.

Great guest today. I recognise his pic on his website so I must have seen him on tv before.

Lots of great guests this year that I wish were recurring ones. Do people want to come back? Do you prefer new people? It just happens that way?

I got turned away from three McDonald'ses.

And that story about Peyton is too bad. It sucks to be embarrassed about your job.

I did phone bank work for awhile, too. Customer satisfaction surveys for telephone and insurance companies. It was TERRIBLE. Cold calling someone to ask them how happy they are with their HMO = lots of verbal abuse.

My first job was at a Chicken Express. I quit after 3 weeks. I wasn't sure what a job was supposed feel like, but I knew it shouldn't feel that shitty.... Well suprise, they all feel shitty.
But I've never been embarrassed by a job.
