He asks you to call him, says to not make him come to your houses & put a step over chicken wing toe hold on you. He says that can happen, says he did that to Spike to where he was clucking like a rooster & then plugs 888-OK-OUTLAW, his email [email protected] & his site hillbillyjim.com . He says he'll play a block of tunes & when he returns, it's time to get jiggy about the outdoors. He says he knows you're out at the ol' pool, the ol' swamp caster house or whatever you're doing.

He says it's a special time there, says it's special now in the studio because he's got someone that's hotter then a $2.00 pistol & says it's Percy who's on the phone. Percy says he's happier then a Frenchman in a commission filled with hotel maids, Hillbilly says that's the kind of entertainment they need & says there was 1 that was happy for a while, but now has a sad face [Arnold Schwarzenegger]. Percy says that may be a good thing for him if "Ma" found out about him doing something like that.

Hillbilly says Percy knows how to live his life, says that he's envious of him & says he's looking at Spike to where he's looking at him, to where it looks as if he'll buy Spike supper.
Percy says someone's gonna have to due to that Spike can't handle his own money well, Hillbilly says he'll have to Fred Fitcher's refrigerator & get 1 of them frozen "possum lasagnas" & says that's what Spike will have for supper with some cold Past Blue Ribbon. He says that's more then what Spike deserves, Percy says he'll let Hillbilly work that out with Spike & says Spike may grab his sandwich if he don't watch out.

He says he didn't know that the Mandobergs roll like that, Percy says it's on credit & says as long as those people keep sending them credit cards, they can do it. Hillbilly says that Percy's accumulating generations of debt for Spike, Percy says yes & says every time he goes there, it always makes him think about Ernest Hemingway: tinyurl.com/ldl8s . He says Hillbilly's a big man that's taken on some of the biggest & asks if he remembers stories about when Ernest lived in Key West.
Percy says Ernest used to take a $100 bill, put it on the water & says anyone that can beat him up can take it. Hillbilly says that Ernest was an amazing boxer & was a physical culture guy, says that Ernest was also a renaissance man in many ways & says he wrote novels to where they were amazing. He says when you saw on what a tough, strapping man Ernest was, he was a man's man & Percy agrees. He says that he thinks about Ernest when he's in Montana & now in Florida, says the only thing Ernest did that he himself would've changed is that he wouldn't commit suicide if he was having much fun. Hillbilly says he never would've had all of those 14 toed cats that Percy's got in his house.
Percy says all those cats were named after movie stars, then says this week there was a great hunt in England to where the cops saw a white tiger in London in a farm pasture. He says a helicopter was there to dart it, says it wouldn't get too close to it due to the winds & says they sent someone to snuck up & shot it. He says when they got there it turned out to be a life-sized stuffed animal: tinyurl.com/3wv2w5d , says that there's about 14 or 15 wild life officials that fought it & Hillbilly says it sounds like they were hanging around in 1 of them English pubs. Percy agrees, again says he's in Florida & will catch some more tarfin & says in 2 weeks he'll be in southern New Orleans.
Percy says he'll try catching some red fish, says after that he'll go north to catch a "slaw mouse" & asks Hillbilly to come with him. Hillbilly says he wants to, then asks Percy to let fans know on how they can contact him & Percy says he forgot to talk about himself.

He says some of the Big Earred rabbits will chew a leg off from them, says he can see that Spike & his highly, over-intoxicated, beveraged up buddies came there & painted every sheep there.
Hillbilly says all the sheep & goats have red, white & blue on them, asked Spike as to how they painted the rams' horns in those colors & tells Spike to quit it. He says he's having a festive time, again says it's the Memorial Day holiday & asked fans if they're feeling good.

14.Hillbilly asks if "It Came Out Of The Sky" puts a big ol' Hillbilly Jim atomic legdrop on you, then says he discovered that in our homes to where most of our energy expenses is something important, because everyone's worried about money. He says that 60% of our energy bills comes from appliances that we use such as a washer, dryer, TV, mixers, blenders & a microwave oven. He asks Spike if he knows what a microwave oven is, says it's not something that you set out in the back to where the patio is & says that's a "hillbilly microwave oven". He tells Spike to stop while he still can, then tells fans to get their calendars & write down 6/3.
Hillbilly says if there's any fans in Riverton, Illinois to go to the Old 36 Inn: tinyurl.com/ydnss9w & see his buddy [Chris Knight] who's a fellow Kentuckian.

16.Hillbilly asked fans as to how come you don't call him, says that he's looking out for you & says to not make him come to you & get all up in your refrigerators. He says he'll eat up all of your baloney & cheese "sandmiches", drink your quarter of buttermilk, then have Spike come over & clear out the cabinets & says that can happen. He says the smell [from Spike] that'll be left behind is something you don't wanna know about, says that baking soda & ammonia can't get that out, then tells fans to call him because it won't cost you a red copper & says he's got you a good deal. He again plugs the toll free request line, then says he's got some Springsteen ["The Promised Land"] & Elvis ["Promised Land"] music to play for you.
Hillbilly says it'll be the same name in the song but they'll sound differently, then plugs the "Bruce & Stevie show" that'll have his buddy Little Steven Van Zandt who'll host a special show this weekend at Sirius XM's Underground Garage with Springsteen on ch.21: siriusxm.com/undergroundgarage .

He says he saw something the other day that blew his mind to where he saw that there's a home in Sweet Grass, Montana that's got a bedroom here in the USA & a kitchen in
Canada & says it's on the border. He says he's trying to think about the economics on this as to what were the politicians playing games & stuff like that, he's wondering that if you've got a home with a bedroom in the USA & a kitchen in Canada, he wonders if the person has to pay taxes in both countries.
Hillbilly says that'd be so wrong, says that has to be a concern & guarantees that there's some politician out there who's trying to get some money off from that. He says he'll leave the hour, says that he's got something that you'll love by playing you a Memorial Day weekend classic ["Big Fat Girlfriend"] & says this guy [Kenny Lee] is proclaimed as "The King Of Heavy Blues".

He again says he's dedicating the show to Savage who was 1 of the best wrestling technicians, says on the phone is someone who's also his friend that both go back a long way is Randy's brother, Lanny Poffo: geniuslannypoffo.com/lanny & thanks Lanny for coming on the show during this rough time to where he says he appreciates him. Lanny says he appreciates him inviting him because he knew that Hillbilly loved Randy & says Randy loved Hillbilly too.
Hillbilly says all 3 had a bond together to where they knew each other for a long time, says that their dad Angelo Poffo was someone that he had much respect for as he did for anyone else in the business & says he was a fine, stand up human. He says Lanny's mom [Judy] is a wonderful lady, says that he & Lanny took lots of trips together & had lots of laughs together & hopes to have more. He says this [Randy's death] is something that hit us out of the clear blue sky, says he can't believe it & says he's had Lanny on his mind ever since. He says he had to put him on the show & again says he appreciates him for being gracious enough to be on.
Hillbilly asks Lanny to tell the fans on what he's feeling now, Lanny says that he feels that they're on the start of something very positive & says this past Monday the viewing of Randy took place. He says nothing could've gotten worse then that, says to see his mom & to be there for her was for her to see the shock of seeing her 1st born son laid out like that & says that was horrible. He says he stayed with his mom during that time because she needed him, says that his family needed each other & says there ain't no self made man in this world. He says people like that are those with false pride & modesty & says we all need someone to lean on.
Lanny says his mom's 84 & wished that she would've died before Randy, but said that nobody had to view to what she had to see that was laid out before her. He says after viewing Randy's body they returned to view again, then the family took a rest & then returned to say goodbye to Randy. He says it was a beautiful private ceremony, says that he feels that it created some great closure & says Randy's widow, Lynn, called him who told Lanny that Randy didn't want to be put in an urn [after being cremated]. He says Randy made his wishes known, says that he called his mom to tell her that Lynn told him that the family needs to be there now because Randy's ashes needed to be sprinkled immediately.
Lanny again says that Randy didn't want to be in an urn, then says his mom wasn't ready to do that yet & when he asked her as to when she'll be ready, her response was 10 minutes. He says he called Lynn to tell her that he's on the way to her home soon, says that the family went to spread the ashes immediately & says his mom who's been a recluse was with Randy's stepdaughters, Lynn who he was married for 1 year & 10 days, Lynn's sisters & says all had the nicest time in honor of Randy to where it was beautiful. Hillbilly says that's what Randy would've wanted & says that if there ever was a free spirit that was on Earth it was indeed Randy.
Hillbilly says that's how he remembers Randy, says that Randy was all about happy & positive energy & says Randy was a delight every time he saw him. He says they've had lots of stories that they've shared throughout the years, says they'll be having more happy stories about him & Lanny agrees. Lanny again says the ashes were spread, says that Randy wouldn't want anyone to mope around because life's too precious to waste a single moment of negativity. He says that before Randy died & feels he knew this, because Randy knew that his body was breaking down & says he was prematurely aging to where his joints were miserable.
Lanny says Randy hurt his neck in the movie "Spider-Man" [as Bonesaw McGraw]: tinyurl.com/3oowc2l , says he hurt his knees in WCW & also hurt his back. He says you can't beat gravity because it wins, Hillbilly says that'll get you every time & Lanny says that Randy made peace with Hulk Hogan, WWE & others that weren't on his good list. He told Hillbilly that he was never not on his good list, Hillbilly says he knew that & tells Lanny he appreciates him.

24.Hillbilly says welcome back to the show, again introduces himself & again says he's got Lanny on the phone. He says he can't say on how much this is doing for him & hopes that it'll help Lanny by being on the show. He says he's got great memories of Lanny & his family, Lanny says he feels the same & knows that the show's in beautiful taste because he knows that Randy's listening. Hillbilly says he's got great memories of Randy, says that we live a life to where we keep moving forward & to take a person like Randy to make us stop, reflect & think about the good times they had. He again says he's had great memories of Lanny, Randy & Elizabeth.
Hillbilly says what times they were to where they were magical, says that they were those guys that were so lucky to be woven into the fabric of America & says it's because they came there at the right time when WWF was hoping. He says Lanny was with him then & said they had a good ride, Lanny says it's been a blessing for him & says he don't regret a minute of it. Hillbilly says that sat in many places & talked in restaurants in places like Newfoundland about both of them wouldn't have a reason or afford to be in these places. He says they can go worldwide, performed in front of millions, says that people liked them & asks as to how much better could it have gotten.
Lanny says he always knew that if anyone remembers his name it's because of Angelo & Randy & says that was his blessing. Hillbilly says Lanny's very kind, says that he could do things in the ring that most people couldn't think about & says with his flexibility he could stand on his won. He says that's tough shoes, says that Lanny's the best guy that he's met who can handle that shadow as good as anyone & says he held his head up with distinction. He says it proves the merit of the man that Lanny is, calls Lanny his lifetime buddy & says Lanny knows it. Lanny thanks him, agrees that they're friends forever & says 1 time he shared a room with David Sammartino: tinyurl.com/3z8laqx .
Lanny says it's when David told him that his father [Bruno Sammartino]: tinyurl.com/5l3byy ruined his career & Randy's ruining Lanny's career. So Lanny's response was that he called David "stupid", then said that he told David that if his dad wasn't Bruno Sammartino & if his brother wasn't Randy, both he & David couldn't get a job carrying the jackets back from the ring to the dressing room & told David, "shame on you". Hillbilly says that Lanny's attitude was always the 1 thing that's always been unwavering, says that Lanny always had positivity in everything he ever said & says it's why he & Lanny get along famously.
Hillbilly says both had great laughs forever, then asks Lanny if there's an organization that Randy would've want fans to send donations to. Lanny mentions All Childrens Hospital: allkids.org & George Steinbrenner Fund For Underprivileged
Children & says Randy worked with them for 13 years. He says when his dad died 3/4/2010 Randy went into a deep depression to where he asked Lanny to come to his home that was about 5 miles away. He says both talked to where Randy told him that 1 of the biggest regrets in his life was when he took Stephanie Bellars [Randy's ex-girlfriend]: tinyurl.com/3jytz97 & gave her the Gorgeous George name.
Lanny says the original Gorgeous George Wagner: tinyurl.com/44cbxsr who was TV's 1st wrestling star was the Hulk Hogan of his day. He says Randy felt that he trashed George's name by giving the name to anyone but Wagner & especially to gender bending girls. He says George was 10 years older then Angelo & when Angelo was just starting out, George encouraged him by helping him a lot. He says lots of stars won't do that for jabronies, says that Angelo was a star because of George & then plays what he says is the last soundbyte of Randy did. He says the quality may sound poor but hopes it's still good enough.
As Lanny plays it the quality wasn't great but from what I tried to hear, it sounded like a Gorgeous George promo of sorts. Lanny plugs machoman.com to where it takes you to gorgeousgeorgeenterprises.com , then says 1 day before he died Randy was online & had everything ready for Amazon.com. He says Randy invited him for a toast by thanking him for all of his hard work on the project, says that Randy's "type A" personality drove everyone crazy & says he was at Randy's house for 2 hours. He says both he & Randy laughed & shared lots of fun, then responds to those who wondered if he did a poem at Randy's funeral.
Lanny says he did 1 for Randy's wedding & at Angelo's funeral, then says at Randy's funeral he took a post-it note & wrote a message which was an answer to a 40 year joke that they shared, to where he says he got the last word. He then impersonates Randy by saying "Now's the time to bear down, it's not the time to take a vacation, now's the time to bear down" & says that was a joke to where they'd always have a laugh about. He says on the post-it note he wrote: "Now's the time not to bear down, Love Lanny". Hillbilly says we've been blessed during the past 2 breaks to have Lanny on the show & again tells him that he appreciates him.
