Morning Shag Recap: Jan. 11, 2024

In case you missed anything, or want more info on what Shags and Trevor talked about on the show, here is the Morning Shag Show Recap – 01/11/24.

Nick Saban Announces Retirement

Shags opened to show this morning to check in on how Trevor was doing after the news dropped yesterday of Alabama’s Head Football Coach, Nick Saban was retiring.

Trevor’s grandfather was the quarterback for Alabama in the 1940’s and his family have been fans ever since.

Though Trevor was handling the news well, Shags could not contain his excitement chanting “The wicked witch of the south is dead”!


Lexington, Kentucky Wants Alien Tourism

A unique advertising campaign that was shot into space is meant to attract aliens to visit Lexington, Kentucky if/ when they come to Earth.

The ad included messages about horses, bourbon, and other things that may attract aliens to the city.

Of course this is a gimmick to get idiots on the radio and else where to talk about Lexington instead. But Shags finds it brilliant for a different reason.

The guy who approved the idea can just claim that the message hasn’t been received yet and to give it more time. It has to travel through space after all. That could take decades! All this guy has to do is say, “Wait for it. Tourism will be through the roof once they get the message”.


Help Save These Endangered Words!!

Wayne State University has put together a list of words that are in threat of being lost forever!

Fear not, Shags is hear to save the day! Surprisingly, he pronounced each of these words correctly!

1.  Rawgabbit . . . a person who speaks confidently but ignorantly.  As in, “Trevor’s social media feed is filled with rawgabbits trying to explain everything from epidemiology to engineering.”

2.  Thunderplump . . . a heavy fall of rain during a thunderstorm.  As in, “Trevor had hoped he could get home before the storm got too bad, but found himself instead jogging through a soggy thunderplump.”

3.  Twankle . . . to twang with the fingers on a musical instrument.  As in, “Trevor sat on the porch as dusk rolled in, twankling an old childhood favorite on the banjo.”

See more words on the ‘endangered list’ below.


Boycott The Bird… Listen To The Chiefs On KCMQ!

The NFL has been promoting this past week, that for the first time ever, a NFL Playoff game will air exclusively on a streaming service, Peacock. Of course, the other way of saying that is… for the first time ever, the NFL is not going to air a playoff game on broadcast TV so everyone can watch it for free!

And of course the game the NFL picked to air on Peacock… The Chiefs game.

This means, that if you do not have Peacock (or don’t sign up for Peacock) you will not be able to watch the Chiefs game.

Good news is, you can still listen to the Chiefs game for FREE on your radio home for the Chiefs, 96.7 KCMQ!

Trevor argued for a boycott of Peacock. This is the only way we can communicate our frustration to the NFL and streaming services. If we all buy Peacock to watch the game, you can expect to see more games moving to streaming services. And we’re certain it will be more than one.

Do your part! Send a message to the NFL! Do not pick up Peacock for this game!

Listen FOR FREE on 96.7 KCMQ!

We Just Lost A Childhood Staple

Fruit Stripe gum is no more.

After a 50 year run of giving children intense fruity flavor for 15 seconds, the company who owns Fruit Stripe gum has announced it is discontinuing the product.

Though Shags and Trevor have not bought Fruit Stripe gum in decades, it was a comfort to see it on the shelves next to the gum and mints the did buy.

Frankly, Fruit Stripe did this to itself! They knew they’re flavor didn’t last long did nothing about it.

Yes, we’re lashing out. We’re upset!


“Cat Pooped In My Mouth”

Are you familiar with this phrase, “Geez, where is the cat that pooped in my mouth last night?!” in reference to having terrible morning breath?

This came up on the show today where Mac & Cheese Micah texted in with the saying. Trevor took it literally because he has never heard that saying, and was obviously disgusted and concerned.

After Shags explained it was a metaphor for bad morning breath, that caused a debate of listeners sharing if they have ever heard it before.

Though many have, it would appear more have not heard the saying before. Those who have not also agreed with Trevor that they term they knew was “Dragon’s Breath”.

Fantasy Life Draft: Best Birds 2.0
