My Little Angel by William Shakespeare

Mike Check: Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for another edition of Mike Check’s “Christmas Carousal”. But before that, here’s something from the old English playwright William Shakespeare.

Mike’s Daughter: Dad. This is not “Shakespeare”…well not technically. This was sort of like Australia’s version of Gary Glitter who happened to go under the name William Shakespeare for some reason?

Mike Check: Oh. Weeeelll. Thank ya there for that correction, that’s why you’re my smart little Angel.

Mike’s Daughter: Really? About a month ago you were saying that, as a woman, I didn’t have “the mental smarts”?

Mike Check: No, I don’t remember saying such a thing there darlin’?

Mike’s Daughter: But…(*sigh*) whatever.

Shoppin’ From A To Z by Toni Basil

I still don’t know why my daughter is always so obsessed with gettin’ up early to go shopping and buying everything from “A to Z” this time of year? Maybe this Toni Basil song will answer that question?

All The Meat And No Potatoes by Fats Waller

Mike Check: Weelll fellers! For Thanksgiving this year ole Mike thought I’d play something different….

(*phone rings*)

Mike Check (*picks up phone*): Hello KMCR, Mike Check speaking?

Angry Jim: How ya tonight on Mike?! Seasons greetings!

Mike Check: I’m doing swell there feller. But it’s Thanksgiving today not Christmas there John?

Angry Jim: For the thousandth time; It’s “JIM”! And yeah, I know that it’s Thanksgivin’ but at Angry Jim’s BBQ I’m usin’ generic terms for forgetful people like you who can’t get f…flippin’ names right! But anyway, ya wanna know how my Thanksgivin’ is goin’ Mike?!

Mike Check: I think I might be afraid to find out?

Angry Jim: It f…flop’n’ well stinks! You know, my d…darn wife won’t cook for me anymore. When a man works hard making BBQ sauce all day he expects to find stew with that fine ham bone…and also some dinner before it! But ya know what I get?

Mike Check: No?

Angry Jim: Green Tomato soup! Where the f…fluff does she get off making puke like that?! Is she tryin’ to kill me?! I think she is?! So I said to her; “Woman, you know that sh…mess ain’t right, where’s my fry and ham bone”? And you know what she replied?!

Mike Check: Ah?

Angry Jim: Go fry with your own ham bone! So then, I watched Football and later beat my own meat!

Mike Check: For dinner?

Angry Jim: Yeah, that too! (*sigh*) All that meat and no potatoes!

Mike Check: That’s sounds like a swell song request: here’s “All The Meat And No Potatoes” by Fats Waller here on…THE MACKER!
