Rappers' names sound like drinks. “Fresca” with “A Little Twist”! Snoop Lion is opening for Dave Matthews' Band at a couple of locations. NBC kicks off “Hannibal” tonight. Casey thinks Hannibal is a bad name. It's a weird world, Lou Gehrig died of his own disease. Blake Lively doesn't want to do a “Gossip Girl” movie.

Kathy got an e-mail from a man who wasn't sure if flirting online should be considered to be cheating. Is Online Flirting Cheating? Examples of some of the online communication between the wife and the online “dude.” ”Wife and the Dude” is a great TV show name. Guy asks wife to send him some “vids.” ”Vids” are also some kind of polish dish? Steve thinks since the wife is actively looking to hide her online communication, she's cheating. Caller says he found his significant other cheating on him with a online chatter. Caller Rob says that the wife is going to cheat on him based on experience and that it can be grounds for divorce. Caller Jillian says it's not clear-cut cheating, but it's definitely inappropriate. Strella Med Spa Sound of Money! Casey farted, Preston can't stand it. Back to the conversation. Anonymous caller admitted he flirted with an ex-girlfriend while married, now has massive trust issues. Casey's about to have diarrhea soon. Consensus is that the wife in the e-mail is cheating.

Shart-outs! Shart-outs to Kathy's love child who earned her doctorate degree and Nick's friend who is recovering from a stroke. Bizarre File Tennessee school says a student has missed more than 20 days of school because she has an unpleasant odor, which causes teachers and students to lose focus in classrooms.

Nick feels fancy with the little bottles of condiments. Study shows that Denver and Dallas have the best room service values and Las Vegas and Honolulu have the most expensive room services. NYC has cheap peanuts. The minibar is free, but the toilet paper's $200. Saudi Women Riding Bikes Women in Saudi Arabia are now allowed to ride bicycles. You've come a long way, baby. Women are still banned from driving and can only bike for recreation. What a progressive society! Real Ring to Rule Them All? A gold, Roman, and supposedly “cursed” ring that allegedly inspired J.R.R. Tolkien's “Lord of the Rings” is on display in England. Would you want this ring or a ring used in the movies? The Hobbit is entertaining, but lives in the shadow of the original trilogy. The Average American Job The most common job among Americans is Retail Sales and Retail Cashier. The average retail salesperson makes only $25,000 a year. Kathy only lasted one summer in retail. Nick wants to be a Wawa General Manager. Preston loved the GAP skit from 90's SNL. Steve's worst job he had to do was telemarketing. Preston knew a grocery store cashier who got laid by cougars. Caller Bill couldn't stand stocking shelves, walked right out. Caller Tom got arrested for DUI still can't land a job after serving time and being sober. Intern Greg is up next for the Intern Olympics!
Time 9:10 – 9:30

Should've been born 30 years ago. We want to compare Greg's eyebrows with Matt Rovine's. Greg's brought breakfast from Pal Joey's Deli this morning. Time to compare eyebrows!

Time 9:42 – 9:53
A beloved restaurant has changed its name. Joe Groh in Studio He is from Joe's Steaks & Soda, formerly known as “Chinks” since it opened in 1949. “Chinks” was a nickname for a cook who worked at Pat's Steaks who ended up starting this restaurant. Joe says nothing has changed besides the name. Joe decided to change the name because it was the right time to do it. Steve was watching an old episode of The Brady Bunch and the father said a couple was “Oriental.” So much history in one location. Do you have Jimmy Hoffa back there?

Woman in Rhode Island crashed her car into 3 cars told police she wanted to cuddle with a lazy man. 911 responded to a goat that was tied to a fence that sounded like a human scream. Man charged with a DUI drove himself to court and parked in the judge's reserved parking spot. A woman's body was found with her car in the impound lot after she was in an accident, the car was towed away with her dead body still intact. LQ. Hollywood Trash Jimmy Fallon; Richie Sambora. LA. Music News Alice in Chains has released a funny documentary on Funny or Die called “AC23.” Chris Cornell has designed two special edition guitars for Gibson. Richie Sambora has left the Bon Jovi tour, with reports claiming Sambora has “deep-seeded issues” with Jon Bon Jovi. Jon Bon Jovi owns Bon Jovi music rights, unlike Jagger and Richards who both own Rolling Stones music rights. Hmmm.... Might be time to look at their tax returns.
