Big Jim and Anna Cliff Notes: Friday, 12/20/13

Miss any of The Big Jim and Anna Show today?  Here's what happened... in cliff note form.

Getting’ Jingle With It

Anna was obsessed with that viral video called #XMASJAMMIES so she convinced Big Jim that they needed to make their own version… Well, their own terrible version.  If you’ve ever wanted to see Anna rap (horribly) and afternoon guy Kevin Begley shove pizza in his mouth- This is the video for you:



Holiday Helpers: Sisterly Love

Ann Marie nominated her 23-year-old brother that has mental challenges.  He is hoping that Santa will come to their home even though times are very tough.  Even Ann Marie’s mother Kelly has health issues that have had to spend a lot of time in the hospital.  We are able to supply tons of toys to put under the tree (including plenty of his favorite… Diet Coke!), DVD player, groceries to fill the pantries and a gift card to Target. 


 Honda of Westport 7:40a Couple’s Court: iPads for Kids?

Shelly called in because her ex-husband surprised their three children with iPads.  She feels that he’s an absent dad and bought them out of spite because he knows she can’t afford that for them.  Kevin argued that she is just being difficult, he can buy whatever he wants for his children.  The audience agreed with Kevin.  The iPads stay and Shelly has to ease up. 



Triple Shot of Info Espresso

Big Jim counts down the three biggest stories of the day to get you in the know.

3.  NY extends smoking ban to e-cigarettes.  More here.  



Daily Dish  is brought to you by:


The Duck Dynasty phenomon may be coming to an end.  As reported yesterday, the patriarch of the family Phil Roberts was suspended by A & E because of his anti-gay remarks.  The family has since come forward and made a statement:


 “We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm,” the Robertson family said “We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.”




We broke the news late yesterday morning that British newspaper “News of the World” hacked Princess Kate’s phone while she was still just dating Prince William.  Well, we joked that it was only a matter of time before we learned what was in those texts and voice messages-  and we have the first bits that - Prince William has a nickname for Kate and it’s… babykins.  He also joked about he was almost shot during a military training exercise. 



Eminem received an offer to sing at the NFL Owner’s Party during Super Bowl week.

He wanted $2 million dollars and the owners said no.  They also said Kanye wanted too much with $1 million plus lots of extra perks.  They ended up going with Janelle Monae that was hired for $150,000.
