BONUS RUCKUS: THE “WHERE’S ALEX?” HAIKU CHALLENGE: Yo, you’re humble co-host ALEX CHARALAMBIDES only misses the show when he’s gotta travel on business. He’s flying to Houston this weekend for a conference and we’re going to offer some stage time to clever individuals who think they can come up with a better story than that to explain his whereabouts. Bring a 17 syllable alibi, in case the authorities come looking. Best explanation gets a drink on us!

Check out his work at RICE CAKE ALERT someone’s gotta get at EMILEE this weekend  to volunteer a snack OR ELSE it will be awful, just awful rice cakes this monday!

Alex would’ve loved it.
