Duck Calls? We have answers. On the record. DUCK DUCK DOWN Two men walk into a bar. It is at this point in the joke  a spectator stands UP from the crowd, having seen something and wishing to report, and says : “Why are they men?“ And the Comedian says, “I’m sorry, but this is a sexist joke.”  *** Greatest fear: someone will shout "Duck" whilst I'm looking at a duck and I am then hit by a ra...

It stood at about 8 1/2 inches, whic...

This is a demo for a radio program from about two years ago. Henry Rollins was not harmed during the recording of this show, nor was the Dalai Lama. Also, a song is sung. (MP3 at the end after the two bonus Dalai Lama stories. The audio is different than the stories.) Post Papal Nirvana Blues by David Raffin davidraffin.com Is a retired Pope “Pope” or “ex-Pope"?
