RUSH: Albany in New York. Dave, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Twenty-plus years of dittos to you, Rush. Thanks for the education and certainly the joy on the airwaves of.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I’ve really appreciated it over all these years.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.
CALLER: You know, I know that you are absolutely not only the sentimental type but you are also the caring time, the loving Maha Rushie that you are. I’ve got an idea for you Rush and I honestly think you’ll like it. I hope you do anyway — and this is for all the Occupy folks because I know you care about them, and I know you love the military and you love a lot of the things that they do. I’m a member of the military myself. How about a “Toys for Snots” program.
CALLER: Toys for Snots, all the snots down on Occupy Wall Street. You could like throw them out toys like, “You Owe Me Elmo,” where you pull the string and it says, “Health care is a right,” or something like that.
CALLER: Or “Tax the rich,” or, you know, “Where’s my job?”
CALLER: Maybe we could have “Sponge Off Taxpayers” or “Captain AmeriCorps.” You know, he stands for deceit, social justice and the Marxist way.
RUSH: (laughing and applauding)
CALLER: I just thought you, as Santa Rush —
CALLER: — could come down the street in a big open sleigh like downtown Macy’s, because you know how much they love Macy’s. Go right down to Wall Street chucking out all these “You Owe Me Elmos” and —
CALLER: — and everything. What do you think?
RUSH: I love it.
RUSH: I absolutely love it! Play off of Toys for Tots. You know, I first became aware of Toys for Tots when I was working in Pittsburgh and the radio station had a joint thing going with the Pittsburgh Penguins at the time, and we’d go into shopping malls late in the afternoon to stay with the Marines and the Toys for Tots and so forth. It was a hoot; it was fun. It’s one of the most recent times I’ve been to a mall. It would be 19’73. I even did one with former Pittsburgh Steeler John “Frenchy” Fuqua, number 33. The guy showed up with goldfish in the heels of his shoes. John “Frenchy” Fuqua. Yeah, he’s a great guy, and Pittsburgh people will no doubt remember him and the goldfish in the heels of the shoes, and now Two If By Tea associated with Marines. “Toys for Snots,” a giant sleigh at Occupy, Toys for Snots? (laughing) Ah, that’s one of those things I wish I had thought of myself. But the problem is, somebody has to tell the Toys for Snots snots that there’s no Santa. Who gets that job?
