  11. C-note says:

    The whole dr. Who exchange, and the mounty costume. All very funny.

  12. ignoramus says:

    second funniest (I agree “Shut up, Michael Jackson!” is the funniest): “Lance, what is your problem with call-in shows this week?” Don’t know why exactly– it’s just funny.

  13. kswiss says:

    “I do my dribble, I hit the bar, roll on ground like West End star!”


  14. Joeking says:


    Lamps called into a radio station because they were talking about him being a bad father and he took it personel, and there was big argument on the air.

  15. Turtle says:

    “I’ve had more fun watching Murder She Wrote” regarding the Chelsea Barca game….hysterical.

    the best episode in a while.
