This will be a night long remembered...

I guess I've come full circle now. Or maybe just call it "karmic retribution" for all the calls that I used to make to this show. Years ago in high school a lot of us used to watch Monday Night Live on the local TV station. Some of us liked to call up and see if we could get away with prank calls (like the forever-infamous "laughing box" caller). I loved to call this show up and talk about serious stuff, but I will admit now to making a few joke calls every now and then. Well, tonight I was running Monday Night Live as, I guess you could say I was the producer. And I got to join in the fun with hosts Ken and Mark as the voice of "Greta", the lady from the Bulgarian Institute of Standards and Technology ("B.I.S.T."). I know, to a lot of people this all doesn't sound like much, but for me it was a big thing that was a lot of fun to do. Who would have thought all those years ago that I would someday be on the other end of the phone line. Ahhhh, good times!!

Code Name Chico remebers the laughing box incident going down something like this...

About 8:10 p.m. on a Monday night about 16 years ago....

Ken: Well, this time of year with daylight saving time people are out doing other things and calls to the show are a bit sparse.

Mark: Wait, a minute...we've got a caller.

Ken: Hi, you're on Monday Night Live.

Caller: Click..."Heee, Heee, Heee, Heeee, Heee..."

(Ken bites lip to avoid laughing.)
