Radio Flashback 1995 - The Cornholing Incident
9/25/2013 12:34:00 PM
Sitting in the daily after morning show meeting with my Program Director down in Tampa Florida. My co-host Lee to my left, and the typical cerebral news guy Harry sitting on my right. The office was very dimly lit, shades always drawn tight, and decorated with many cool items of rock memorabilia all over the walls. Little toys and figures were strategically placed in every inch of free space on his desk and shelves. He was rubbing his hand over the top of his freshly shaved head rocking back in his chair. These often didn't go well and you could see the stress and concern on everyone's faces as the PD started his monologue of motivation.
The PD leans forward and places both hands firmly on his desk.
PD: Gentlemen, Cornholing is NOT the answer.
me: Jesus man, what was the question?!
PD: FU&K, MOTHERF*$KER, YOU SON OF A B!TC#, GOD DA^N
Little toy robots and figurines fly our way like sideways rain.
end of meeting
As we walk down the hall out of managements office area and back to the safety of the studios Lee looks at me.
Harry: (snickering)What was the question? hehehehe
me: Is cornholing a real word?
Lee: Damn dude that's messed up
Harry: (in an almost English accent)What an odd thing to say?
Lee: He's pissed
me: When is cornholing ever the answer?
Today, as life throws its daggers and dangers your way. Remember at all times my friend... Whatever questions you my have... Cornholing is NOT the answer!
I should point out, to be very fair, that my PD at the time was actualy one very cool guy who I am proud to call a friend. I poked the bear when the bear was a little stressed. Typical.
