” I spent Black Friday behind the Golden EIB Microphone sitting in for Rush on America’s Number One radio show. It was a fun ride today and we discussed many things – from immigration to ISIS to impeachment – but we also talked about a man from the Colorado town of Fruitvale (seriously), who’s been charged with a felony for threatening two police officers with a banana:

Anyway, the big takeaway from this is it’s now illegal to point a banana at law enforcement. As Harry Belafonte sang:

Come, Mister Copper Man
Take down me banana
Sheriff come
And me wan’ go home.

~There may have been a bit more music from me on the show than anyone was in the mood for. But, if you’re interested, my version of Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever” and “The Way You Look Tonight” in French are from my new CD Goldfinger, and the disco version of “A Marshmallow World” is on Jessica’s and my Christmas album Making Spirits Bright.

~If you’re wondering about that Mark Twain event I mentioned on the show today, it’s on Monday December 8th in Hartford, Connecticut just across the street from the Mark Twain House. Your local Rush station WTIC is one of the co-presenters of the event, and NPR’s Scott Simon will be quizzing me. You can find full details and reserve tickets here. “
