Listener’s Guide to the – Drew and Mike Show – Glossary

Big Ole Baby – This phrase began with a tabloid story about a gigantic baby. The child’s mother was interviewed via telephone, Elvis was somehow interjected into the conversation, and now any similar stories about colossal children must be referred to with this phrase, and only in an Elvis voice, such as “Ahhhhhhhh thas a big ole baby.” This practice routinely creeps into other stories about large things, such as “Ahhhhhhhh thas a big ole house, car, etc.”

Bruce – Former WRIF intern, best known for his fondness of disrobing in public.

Buffet Bob – Gravitationally-challenged individual that attracted attention from law enforcement officials when he apparently took an “all you can eat” invitation at a Chinese restaurant a little too seriously and nearly ate the place bankrupt.

No One is Responsible For Anything – The general principle that appears to guide our society today. For instance, Mike is not responsible for his behavior due to his being sprayed with Zinc Cadmium Sulfide as a child, Drew’s mischievous behavior stems from his coming from a broken family, and so on.

OJ Voice – Another interesting method of pronunciation that is difficult to describe in a printed narrative.

It is not unusual for substantial portions of the show to be broadcast in this manner.

Psycho Cat Lady, The – A deranged lunatic who contacted the police and requested an officer to remove her cat, apparently because she had become convinced that it represented some type of threat to her health. When the 911 operator informed her that such a task was not the responsibility of the police, the woman went into a psychotic tirade that, while incredibly amusing, was also quite disturbing, and has become a sort of metaphor for mentally unstable, psychopathic, disturbed, crackpot individuals everywhere.
Psycho Ex-Girlfriend – Describes Jill, a former companion of Mark McElwain, a gentleman from the Dallas area. This obviously dysfunctional and unbalanced individual left more than 50 messages on McElwain’s answering machine over a short period of time, occasionally spanning only a few minutes between ravings. The narrative pattern of her tirades varied wildly, fluctuating between conspicuous, acrimonious antipathy and sorrow-ridden, melancholy wailing. The pattern is clearly indicative of a variety of diagnosable psychopathological afflictions that any guy who’s ever dumped a psycho hose beast bitch will recognize immediately.
Pulling a Wolters – Describes the act of creating a serious social faux pax, and stems from multiple incidents caused by show co-producer Mike Wolters. The most notable of these was one in which Mr. Wolters had completed an off-air interview with an openly gay man and, thinking that the conversation had ended proceeded to exclaim loudly “That guy wants to fuck me.” Of course, the gentleman was still on the line and heard the exclamation, causing the entire staff to spend hours devising ways in which to fix the problem.

The show will often times purposely interchange the names of the two actors as if they were doing so unknowingly. The show will usually continue the act despite an onslaught of phone calls and emails in an attempt to correct the mistake. For example: “D.J.

As if.
Sixth-Man In – Term that describes what is considered to be the last possible male participant that could reasonably become involved in sexual relations with a female. The logic proceeds as follows: One penis inserted vaginally, one anally, one for the mouth, one in each hand, and, finally, a sixth participant to slide his penis between the breasts. Although it has not been explicitly stated on the show, it should perhaps be acknowledged that there are probably a few small-dicked nose or ear fuckers out there that would destroy this rationale.

While Disney officials stated that the utterance was actually a Swahili phrase, careful scrutiny of the narration leaves little doubt as to the actual content of the doll’s declaration.
Stacy – Young female employee of the WRIF sales department that is thought to be physically attractive. Despite such external splendor, Stacy has clearly exhibited psychologically vicious tendencies by rejecting and insulting would-be suitors on the air, once even stating before approximately 500,000 listeners that one such gentleman had a zit that made him look like he had been “walloped upside the head.”

College questions must involve Division I teams only. Howard is allowed 3 guesses and may ask for hints. Callers may be awarded a prize if Howard is unable to correctly answer the question, if the correct answer was given only after several quality hints were granted, if the question is deemed to be of superior quality to other questions, or for various other reasons. Female callers that speak to Howard in a sexually explicit manner generally win by default.
Stump The Staff – Interactive game in which listeners are invited to call in with trivia questions in an attempt to stump all present staff members. Callers are only allowed one question, and tremendous attempts are made to get them to waste it with such pointless inquiries such as “How are you?” or “What’s happening?” Even an inflected question such as “Hello?” or “What?” is sufficient grounds for disqualification, and every attempt will be made to trick the caller into such a faux paux.

These columns led to a good-natured rivalry and relatively affable verbal sparring between Mr. Talbert and Drew and Mike.

Used to bait callers into a trap in which Drew and Mike pretend to sympathize with the victim’s viewpoints so that the victim will articulate them, only to be pounced upon after the interview has run long enough that termination of the conversation is considered inconsequential. Victims of this practice are generally quite deserving of the abuse.
Temperature Given as the Number of a Sports Player – The current or expected air temperature will frequently be stated in the form of the number of a sports player. For instance, on a very cold morning it might stated that “It is Gordie Howe right now” (9 degrees), or a hot day could be broadcast as “We are expecting a high of Sergei Federov” (91 degrees).

Upon further inquiry however, it was discovered that he only dances once a year, and for free. He claimed to have significant resources, and yet was unable to fully explain his source if income.
