I'm vermin and insects and what are the things you can't stand in your house I get a text here it says. I had a stupid neighbor who used a twelve gauge on his semen porch to kill a snake. But shot everywhere including him. Says you have had some enemy ever tried did particulate in the house and wanna hurt yourself or breaking something. And if you know anybody that happened that that's happened to an estimate excellent near canal left the doors open and a snake in one -- disputed out. At a possibly the next day you shoot it out. Back in a flash and evidently well. Tommy Tucker talking about a multitude of things today about -- in your house a woman in Kansas. Just about burned their house down trying. Eleven at this was kind of funny when you think that who would actually set -- -- Iowa rags on fire ridiculous spider but she did nobody was certain she almost. Earned her house announcement but is there one creepy crawling that bug you more than. The other and have you ever been their friend's house related things around and around and you're saying yourself -- Have you seen these. And then there's a show entry port that they must be something here that I nine get Michael Vick has a comedy show going to Shreveport. It says is gonna premiere here -- featuring himself and five comedians. So at the strand theater in the entry ports I don't know if he's gonna be doing standup himself or not but. People are. All -- day in and arms and they're gonna protests because naturally he he had some trouble with dog fighting and killing dogs he went to prison for that for two years. But they say were concerned are gonna be making fun of dog fighting which is a serious issue. We just of their ages is funny dog fighting shouldn't be funny to anyone know Michael Vick is with the Philadelphia Eagles. And after everything he went through. I find it kinda hard to believe. That he would either he's with the jets now beg your pardon but. That's kind of hard to believe that he would. Involve himself in any way you with attempts at humor about dog fighting her dog killing. I don't think he's -- stand up there and you'll monologue about the dogs he killed after everything he went through and now he portrays himself as an animal rights advocate. And I certainly don't think he's gonna let any of the comedians. Better on stage do that. On either of these people are just looking at some in the protests here there's still angry. About Michael vick's involvement in dog fighting in the way he testified that he killed some dogs are admitted to it. -- ecology 6018780386. Exit 890870. Of Michael Vick were designed to take issue -- here. Who would you protest it would just not go see it and not care ideas don't care -- and died the box office if you don't like what's going on at either. The best way to punish him to take a break come back with more Tommy Tucker debit WL 752 time to look at traffic and that would get a Mike -- Tallied staggered at W offers news and love people that listen to the entire four hours and have the same sense of -- side view because somebody takes it -- quite simply. Michael Vick is irrelevant which goes back to a conversation we had with the listener. About the NBA about an hour ago so thank you for paying attention and listening so long. And for making me laugh because -- really do love to do that a new study elicited this reveals one in four Americans. Neither know how or one to deal with their personal finances. As for me I hate having to sit down. And pay the bills that are check this -- check that I wish to goodness somebody that I could trust. Well first off I wish that I had enough. To hand over to somebody that I trust to do it I think part of the reason I put it off just being honest. Is you don't know if there's going to be enough. Meet for everybody needs they just kind of put off cook it in the out of sync data weigh in any of these obligations to get so much common in. And sometimes you just stick your head in the sand and say well I'll get to it eventually. But anyway who pays the bills in your house who handles finances is it him is it hurt is it both -- you. Maybe could be to him Steelers is now we're talking about -- about finances. But he would turn it over to a professional and doesn't really matter. Unless you really have some assets. We'll talk about it when we come back is knowledgeable leisure assets that it W.
