    Woo hoo! I’m this week’s boy tenor. Here’s a link to the cartoon Frank Sinatra that Larry was talking about. You get the idea: .

    Honesty, lies, both fine options. Both will get you in a lot of trouble if use incorrectly.

    Larry did win one time on the Hypothetical Road Trip game, but it was a trick question:
    Would you rather drive to Florida with a)Gene Simmons or 2)The biggest Kiss fan in the world?
    Larry’s answer: Gene Simmons!
    DING Correct!
    Trick question, As Gene Simmons is the Biggest Kiss Fan in the world, they were both the same person.
    Only question Larry has ever gotten right.

      I remember the only time Larry won the Hypothetical Road Trip game was the last time he was on Adam’s radio show, before they took it off the air to play top 40 songs, Lady Gaga and ranchero music.
      I still miss the old radio shows, but the best part of the deal is we all ended up with this pirate ship of a station.
      If Larry ever got another question right, I’d worry something bad was about to happen.
      But keep your chin up, Mr. Miller! You’ll get ‘em next time.

    Larry, I’ve been a huge fan of yours for years. I love the podcast!

    Your Ted Kennedy story reminded me of a brief run in I had with him back in the late 1990’s.

    I was taking a stand-up comedy class at The New School here in NYC. One week, the floor where we usually have class was closed off for some kind of event or lecture that was supposed to happen later that night, so we were relocated one floor up.

    The men’s rooms were out of order on that floor, so if we had to go, we were instructed to use the men’s room on the next floor down, where we usually have class.

    I usually got to class really early, so by the time class was about to start, I had maybe three bottles of water in me. So eventually, I’ve gotta piss like a racehorse.

    I love that phrase, by the way. Whenever someone says they have to piss like a racehorse, I think they mean outside, down on all fours with a 4′ 6″ Guatemalan guy on their back.

    So I’m up on 8, bathrooms are down on 7. I walk down the stairwell, go into the bathroom, answer nature’s call. Rather than walk up the stairs like someone who isn’t incredibly lazy, I push the elevator button to go up one floor.

    And as the elevator doors open, standing right in front of me inside the elevator is Senator Ted Kennedy.

    To say the least, I was not expecting Ted Kennedy to be in the elevator.

    I wasn’t quite sure what to say or do, so I said the first thing that seemed right. I looked at him and said, “Senator”

    I then moved aside so he could get out of the elevator. And as he exited the elevator, he didn’t speak, just gave a little nod and smile, and walked down the hallway.

    I always admired the way he did that. Classy guy, warm smile, just a decent human. He will be missed by me, for sure.

      Decent human? Did you forget about Chappaquiddick? He was a good politician, and while that’s not saying much it’s all I can say.

    Speaking of barber-shop quartets, I remember a few years back when we had a hurricane blow through here that knocked the power out for a few days, me and a few buddies and some carefully rationed whiskey kept ourselves amused by singing Johnny Cash songs and arranging them for 3-part harmony.

    This Week With Larry Miller is my favorite show. It reminds me of hanging out in the kitchen while my favorite uncle tells funny stories.
    It just warms my soul.

    HOARDER – I hoard This Week With Larry Miller… There I’ve admitted it. I save the listening for times of high stress. For instance last month I traveled across country to visit family and friends and I don’t fly well – I’m that lady. I took one bloody mary (of course it was a double) and two This Week with Larry Miller’s and I was feeling SO MUCH BETTER. This month I’m home hunting – NOT FUN – so today to cheer me up I listened to three weeks and I’m hoarding three more just in case viewings don’t go well tomorrow. Larry & Team This Week – I love each and every one of you and I can’t wait until your buying drinks with the profits from our time together. Now I’m going to go have a kahlua and milk. Cheers

    My guess is that this would be very popular around the world. I have attended a few of the webinars. But since I live in Sweden, the time the webinars are held aren’t very good. It is often late at night. A suggestion would be to be able to have access to the seminar ONCE after it has been broadcast. That would be very useful. Just a suggestion, thanks anyway!
