I keep a copy of _The Book of Guys_ in my office for those days when things get to be to much.
Listening to your show since 1991 has been a real education for me and my eldest son. Your show has really helped me to understand my Norwegian father-in-law, Norwegian neighbors, Norwegian doctor, and my Norwegian/ Lutheran boss.
The show on jokes was about the funniest thing I had ever heard.I still use those jokes, carefully rationed out at need.
Some of what I find to be most amusing about your show is the conflict between good and not so good. The recent rebroadcast with Guy Noir helping a weatherman from Minnesota who lives in Florida while both bemoan the honesty of a Lutheran woman was hilarious. In many ways your stories are like those of Isaac Asimov's - no real bad guys, just a few not-so-good guys.
I really enjoy the efforts you make at localizing the show when you are on the road. Shows from St. Louis, New Orleans, and Alaska echo in my mind frequently.

Anyhow, thanks for your show. I live for it on the weekends and will even go in to the office to work just so I can listen in peace.

Why do you hang out with all these Norwegians? These are taciturn, stubborn, troublesome people who aren't all that charming to be around. Can you name a great Norwegian comedian real quick? No, you can't. You need to meet more Finns, Tod. Now THERE's a bunch of folks. GK
