Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.
– A Michigan man is learning how to walk again after having a 100-pound growth removed from his scrotum during a 16-hour procedure at a hospital in Southern California.
Dan Maurer said he looks forward to having sex with his wife for the first time in seven years, as well as traveling and jet skiing.
Said Dennis: “I’ve got a question for you: What did they do with it?”
Replied Minihane: “I don’t know, what do you do with a 100-pound scrotum?”
Suggested Callahan: “I don’t know, you make a tent? I don’t know, pool cover?”
Added Minihane: “You make a bunch of different hats, maybe?”
– Revered French actor Gerard Depardieu said he sometimes drinks up to 14 bottles of wine a day, despite having a quintuple heart bypass heart operation 14 years ago.
Depardieu, 65, said he starts in the morning with champagne or red wine before 10 a.m., and he claims he never gets “totally drunk.”
“I couldn’t open that many bottles,” said Callahan, who noted after seeing the actor’s picture, “He looks like a big drinker.”
– Woody Allen said in a recent interview that he lives a “very dull, middle-class life” and is not concerned with what ex-wife Mia Farrow thinks about him.
On his very public dispute with Farrow that included allegations of child molestation that he strongly denies, Allen said: “That means nothing to me. I’ve never given it a second’s thought, afterward. … And what do I care, when I shuffle off my coil? I don’t really care about anything that happens after my death. I don’t care if they take all of my movies and burn them.”
“You have to feel that way, Callahan said. “When you marry your daughter, that’s the way you’ve got to live life. You’ve got to be a nihilist.”
– Barbra Streisand is poised to become the first person to have a No. 1 album in six decades. “Partners,” an album that features the icon singing duets with a variety of male vocalists, is expected to have huge sales this week.
To promote the album, Streisand on Monday made her first late-night talk show appearance since 1963 when she appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, performing a medley of songs with the host before doing a solo number.
“She still sounds the same,” Callahan said after hearing a clip.
Said Minihane: “She seems like she’s a handful to me.”
