Hello, Boys

If you are an avid fan of NPR then you've probably heard of Car Talk. Click and Clack are the hosts of the radio talk show where people can call in with their car troubles and they do their worst to fix the problem. About 60% of the air time consists of their deafening laughter.

Just recently I've discovered a new male comedic duo: HG Nelson and "Rampaging" Roy Slaven. These two have been commenting on the past three Summer Olympics and it has been hilarious. This year's show was titled "The Golden Ring" and can be downloaded as a podcast for some very entertaining road trips. Some highlights:

-- Roy suggests a new type of swimming heat in which the athletes must carry another person of the same weight across the pool with them.
-- Roy also suggests classifying the races by weight and age, giving rise to a new swimming race that consists of 11 year-olds weighing 100 kilos.
-- They speculate that London's contribution to the 2008 Closing Ceremony will consist of Paul McCartney singing "Hey Jude" for 42 minutes.

If you'd like to hear some absolute gold look them up on Youtube. The men's gymnastics and men's weightlifting will have you in tears.
