Fox’s Pizza, Guinness, the Cork and Kerry Irish Pub,Flood Brothers Disposal and Chicago Firefighters Union Local 2 present The Houli’s Hooley with Bill and Paddy Houlihan who are joined by their good friend, Clay O’Brien. No more crazy “poo-poo” dreams for the guys this week. School’s out for summer, camps and pools are reopening and things are finally going back to normal! The weather is a ‘hot’ topic.. It’s muggy out there, folks! The lads reckon that the summer heat creates anger. “Any liquor flying, Billy?” – Clay wants to know just how angry liquor salesmen get. How do the guys feel about the waiting room in a Jiffy Lube? “It’s like the McDonald’s of mechanics!” – Paddy. The guys go way off topic but eventually return to Paddy’s ‘incident at the Jiffy Lube’ story. The guys come up with alternative utensils to eat ice cream with instead of a spoon. Sports Talk with focus on baseball, specifically the drama in the Little League involving illegal bats. We learn ‘how to control your anger in the summer heat’. There’s a staff shortage in the service industry and the reality hits our favorite trio that things aren’t going to be the same as before Covid-19 hit. We take a musical break with “Nothing But Flowers” by Talking Heads. “Das Chocolate” is the guys’ newest idea for a Broadway musical – “It’s a show about all things that are ‘kind of’ German”. We take another musical break from the madness with “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin. The Houlihan brothers tell us about their weekend family outing to the Mount Carmel High School Fight Night. What is the ideal walkout song?! Christian Pat isn’t impressed about the lack of modesty at the pool. ‘Mr. Marbles, The Outdoor Stripclub’ is another one of their latest business ideas. What does it look like, you ask? Mirrors everywhere and it’s run by ‘Billy’s Toys’. “What would you wear in a pool if you were 400 pounds?” – Clay’s asking the real questions now. All 3 boys have White Sox fever! The guys name their price for going a full year without a phone. We end another hilariously wacky show with “One Big Holiday” by My Morning Jacket.
