The Animals of Cock-a-Doodle Zoo In-Studio

The Animals of Cock-a-Doodle Zoo In-Studio

The folks from Cock-a-Doodle Zoo at the Maplewood Mall came to the studios and brought along some of their four-legged friends. Roger the alligator, Flower the skunk, Trot the fox, and two baby kangaroos, Janis Hoplin and Bindi. The animals hung out for a little while, making us “awwww” all over the place. And Roger may have given Ross a heart attack…

Once again, we sent Ashley out to Bobby and Steve’s Auto World, this time in West St. Paul and Eden Prairie, to collect food for Randy Shaver in his KARE 11 Food Fight.

We aimed for the lofty goal of 10,000 pounds of food (where $1=4lbs) with the promise of some interesting videos should she reach the goal. Well, thanks to the generosity of the Brotherhood (with an assist to Ross’s wallet,) we hit our goal.

If you still want to donate, you can go to the Minnetonka Whole Foods on Tuesday, November 26th, and donate to his fight directly.

Also, on Ashley’s birthday, we gave Nick a present too… A ride in his favorite thing in the world… The Oscar Meyer Wienermobile!! It was bumpy ride, but something to remember, for sure.

Ashley Does the #OneChipChallenge

Ashley Does the #OneChipChallenge

This week, for Smash Wednesday, Ashley agreed to try the One Chip Challenge from Paqui Chips.  The hermetically sealed single chip is coated in in the dust and oil of the Carolina Reaper hot pepper.  That chip, until very recently, was labeled as the hottest pepper in the world, coming in a 2.2 million Scoville Units (for reference, a Jalapeno is a measly 1,000SU.)  Now, since we didn’t want to killer her, we let her break off a tiny piece of the black chip before throwing it in her yap.  That pea-sized tortilla chip almost put her out of commission for an hour.  So we are a little afraid of what could have happened.

Nick and Josh Get New Wigs

Nick and Josh Get New Wigs

Nick and Josh are bald.

It’s okay… they know that.

But what would they look like with a luscious head of locks? Well, we had the final people from Y Barber in Mankato bring in a selection of wigs for them to try on.  They went through several different options, but finally settled on a new head of hair to take for a test drive on the boat, for Rock the River.

Watch Ross Run in the Mascot Race at Target Field

Ross ran in Target Field’s mascot race as ‘Bullseye the Target dog’ Wednesday night and somehow managed to finish in 3rd place. He at least was able to place higher than Nick (I mean Louie the Loon) did back in 2017

Post-Mascot Party Clean Up Time

Post-Mascot Party Clean Up Time

After the insanity that was Nick’s Mascot Birthday Party, we had to clean up the 500 feet of silly string and the two tons of confetti that the mascots unleashed on us. As Ross pulled out a backpack vacuum from 1986, Josh had the genius idea to start blasting the Ghostbusters Theme on a constant loop. We will be finding random strips of confetti in this room for the next 20 years.

The Half-Assed Morning Show surprised Nick with a little birthday celebration during the show. Attendees included his favorite mascots: Nordy, TC Bear, Goldy Gopher, Crunch and Prowl.

Meanwhile… Ross prepares for his upcoming race at Target Field by organizing a practice run against the mascots in the back lot. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t win – it’s not even close.

Nick’s Mascot Birthday Party!

Nick’s Mascot Birthday Party!

Today, is Nick’s 48th birthday. We thought we’d surprise him with a mascot party, featuring Prowl, Crunch, TC Bear, Nordy, and Goldy Gopher. They surprised us too, with confetti, silly string, and our for-sure firing…
