Larry’s Five Soap Bar Parlay!

Hear the most erudite vomiting analogy ever. And learn the tale behind the enigmatic expression “Chicken Larry.”

On this week’s show, Larry unabashedly professes his love for being in a marching band. He also discusses more about being “Dad cheap.” Find out what personal hygiene item in Larry’s home most resembles an Aztec pyramid. Fortune cookies stink. This bat’s getting rusty.

Are you a cardinal? Even if you’re not, you will learn that in Larry’s world, “power booting” has nothing to do with restarting a computer. Larry admits he doesn’t mind cleaning up baby vomit, but he’s not so enamored by the barf of people in the studio.

Make sure not to miss this episode. It’s a real horn-honker.

Quote of the week: “I defy you to find a better Chicken Larry.”

This episode’s invented word: fivefecta

    Awesome. Gotta try me some Chicken Larry.

    Best quote: “I power-booted across the table, into the trashcan, on a perfect arc, it was like an English bowman at the Battle of Agincourt.”

    Larry really is a verbal artist. Nice~!

    We bought a drinking game book for my college roommate when he turned 21. It had the Cardinal Puff game in it, but we dismissed it as foolishness, not becoming of engineering majors. No, we had to play a game of mutually assured destruction known as “Boot-a-Bout”. That game is described here:

    I’m 40 now and my generation will be taking over soon.

    I tracked down that opening song and now listen to it every morning when I step out of the shower in my robe. I generally march around my apartment a couple of laps – annoying my girl to no end – and make a farting sound after the last note.

    Larrys’ville. i have an almost identical voicemail story of my son and his voice changing. when you set up your voicemail you get to do a ‘greeting’ and a voicemail separately. so when i’d dial him for months his phone would say “you have reached: ‘tyler’ (in his little boy voice)” then “hey leave me a message” in his james earl jones voice. it was precious, we enjoyed him not answering :)

    Larry, you had me in stitches with the soap story … only because i do the exact same thing. However, I have never come close to 5 bars! Let the record books show that Babe Ruth had 714 HRs, Lou Gehrig played in 2130 consecutive games and Larry Miller successfully combined 5 used bars of soap into one!

    I love how Larry makes me feel like he is the lucky one to be doing this show, when in reality, we are the fortunate ones to have this great talent sharing his stories of family, friends and frat’s. God Bless you Larry for making the time to do this show.

    Love the podcast! Great power-booting story. We always call it booting, maybe its a Massachusetts thing. My favorite booting story from college was my friend drinking so much he booted on our other friend, and into a trash can, and then proceeded to put away (yes, as in drink) the entire trash can full of boot. Gotta love college.

    Love the podcast. I’d like to point out that I am a girl!
    As much as I can appreciate profanity and dirty jokes, I love that Larry doesn’t work blue, and is still very entertaining.
    Would also like to say that there are many things he says that make complete sense about life, and I think about those points on a regular basis. Thanks Larry!
    Oh, and Chicken Larry sounds awesome!

    Larry, my mom has a trick for used soap. She’ll save it up for, heck, YEARS, until she has a roughly-two-bars’-worth-sized collection. She’ll then put all the pieces in a (let me emphasize: CLEAN, UNUSED) ankle-length stocking (aka “footie” pantyhose) and tie a knot to keep the pieces in. Not only do you get to use all the soap, but it’s the best loofah ever…just rough enough to gently scrub/exfoliate. I’m sure the Larry Miller Nation would concur that this is the equivalent to corking one’s bat with regard to official Soap Bar Parlay stats, but it’s still handy.
