THE "FAT!" IN FAT TUESDAY
IT'S FROM THE JIM ROME SHOW
I can't say the word "fat" any other way now.
If you're a "Clone," you know what I'm talking about. If you watched Live at Daybreak this morning and heard me say "FAT!" time and time again, you may have been wondering what my problem was.
To be fair... you may be wondering that anyway. Send me a nasty email... I'll post it.
Anyway, on the "FAT!" which is said loudly with a slight uptick in projection, it comes from the Jim Rome show. Actually, it comes from Mike Gundy, head coach of Oklahoma State Football. In his tirade about an article the appeared in the newspaper, he says the word "FAT!" really funny.
Rome uses that single word as a "drop" in his show. Anytime he or anyone else uses the word "fat" he, or rather Alvin (one of the XR4TI crew... again if you listen you'd know) hits the button and Gundy says "FAT!" It makes me laugh.
So that's what that was this morning. If you want to hear the Gundy thing, there's a link below. "FAT!" comes at about 1:30 or so.
