EDC Check:

Comedy Corner:

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cellular phone on a

bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to

talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: “Hello”

WOMAN: “Hi Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?”

MAN: “Yes.”

WOMAN: “I’m at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It’s

only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?”

MAN: “Sure, go ahead if you like it that much.”

WOMAN: “I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models.

I saw one I really liked.”

MAN: “How much?”

WOMAN: “$90,000.” ;

MAN: “OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.”

WOMAN: “Great! Oh, and one more thing… I was just talking to Janie and

found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They’re

asking $980,000 for it.”

MAN: “Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They’ll probably

take it. If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it’s what you

really want.”

WOMAN: “OK. I’ll see you later! I love you so much!”

MAN: “Bye! I love you, too.”

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in

astonishment, mouths wide open.

He turns and asks, “Anyone know who’s phone this is.....

Listener Feedback


Hi Doug and Troy,

I’m a new listener to your show and I love it! To be honest I’m working hard to be a good Christian and a Godly man. It’s been a long hard road for me but I feel I’m making great headway and I believe that my family and I have found a great church to call home.

That’s actually the reason for my email. We live in upstate South Carolina and our church is very close to the interstate. As you might remember last year a young man shot up a church in Charleston SC. He was later caught in the Charlotte NC area. Also recently some of our church members and staff have had money and credit cards taken from their purses. These instances and the current social climates give me concern for my family’s safety and that of my church family.  I am a concealed carrier but I don’t carry in church as it’s not legal in SC without the church's permission. I would like to talk to the church about doing so and also about the general security of the church and its members. As I’ve only been going to this church for a little over a year and I’ve really only gotten more involved with church activities in the past couple of months I don’t know how I should broach the subject. Do you have any suggestions on how to do that tactfully?

As a secondary question, I also work in a large international company, with my wife, and our security practices are VERY loose to say the least. I’ve asked management if we have plans in place in case of emergencies such as civil emergencies such as, fire, chemical spills (our company is alongside of the same interstate as I mentioned before and is heavily traveled by trucks) riots and active shooters. I’m sad to say that my inquiry has fallen on deaf ears thus far. Aside from taking the needed training myself, how do I try to make my company aware of the need to educate our workers on what to do in case the need for action comes about? Side note, concealed carry is also NOT allowed on company property.

Thank you for your help and all of your hard work.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to apologize for not thanking you sooner for the sample of FrogLube you sent me months ago.

It dawned on me the other night as it came time to clean all of our carry pistols that I'd never properly thanked you.

My wife was completely amazed at the minty fresh scent and the fact that  the lube was non-toxic.

You probably would have laughed pretty heavy if you were sitting next to us and saw me and my wife passing various disassembled gun parts back and forth smelling them while simultaneously keeping them Out Of Reach of our 7 month old daughter.

And just as a side note I assure you there was absolutely no ammunition anywhere near the area that we used to clean and lubricate the pistols.

It was just a good time had with the family in the living room exercising our 2nd Amendment right to clean guns whether we like it or not.

So from my family to yours thank you for creating another FrogLube family.
