Help A Man Out

I'm stumped. There used to a syndicated radio talk show on in Dallas where the host would amazingly serve as not only the host but also the guest by changing his voice. It was pretty amazing in that he would have a conversation with himself but you'd swear there were two people involved. I know that sounds confusing, but it was good stuff. His basic schtick was to have his "guest" make outrageous claims to get unknowing listeners to call in. Question: Anyone know who that guy was? For the life of me, I can't remember.

Left lane for passing only!
Slower traffic keep right!

When driving on 287 or 114...

...and you get passed on the right you must repeat to yourself..."I am a moron"

How on God's green earth could you possibly stay in the left FREAKING lane? unbelievable.

Anyone caught driving in the left lane without passing a car should be pulled over and tazed in front of their family.

The only radio people I remember doing schtick like that were KNUS's Gordon McClendon (from way back in the day) and possibly KLIF's former rightwing nutjob David Gould.

There was John LaBella and Walter from Waco. But I don't think that counts.

Ha...aaa..aa..hello, LaBella, The Zoo?

Saw a commercial that got me thinking....maybe some of you lawyer types can comment. (btw...I don't who the radio personality was/is.)

If a person commits a crime and sometime between the offense and trial, he/she suffers a serious case of amnesia. Can't remember name, spouse, children, committing the offense...could that lighten a sentencing?

As the poster above noted, it is Phil Hendrie you are thinking about. He would have a variety of guests on (really Phil himself) such as the Beverly Hills Restauranteur who claimed he invented the "foil wrapped baked potato." It was hilarious to hear the enraged callers, who claimed their great-grandmother wrapped her baked potatoes in foil.

He quit his show in 2006, wanting to go into acting, but a year later he came back as a "serious" late night radio host (give me a break). His new slot is midnight, and he's not on in Dallas, and I hear he's boring these days. He's gonna have to bring back his schtick to be successful.

He has a website where you can listen to HOURS of his shows. good for that once or twice a year when you are in a silly mood. www.philhendrieshow.com

Bernie Mac they say died of pneumonia- that' kinda/sorta true. He died from a condition known as crack lung. For real, my buddy is an ER nurse and she said so.

I will concede your point that many black folks worked (past tense) very hard. This begs the question "why did they quit?" Many white folks also worked very hard to make this country great. The difference is we are still working, while a bunch of niggers are sitting on their asses expecting a free ride or sitting in prison becauase they cant follow the rules. Shut up and fix yourselves. It will all work better that way.
