In Friday’s edition of Three For All on Middays with MFB, Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz discussed Tara Reid‘s take on “Sharknado,” Benz’s sloppy eating habits and an unusual spam message he received on Facebook. To listen to the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
Reid, who starred in the original “Sharknado” movie, told GQ Magazine that the chances of a shark attack on New York, where the sequel will take place, thanks to a furious tornado is not a far-fetched as one may believe.
“You know, it actually can happen,” Reid said. “I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually.”
Fauria read the quote through his own impersonation of Reid, sending Merloni and Benz into hysterical laughter.
“That’s a hard sell right there,” Benz said.
Said Fauria: “So be careful. If you’re by any body of water and there’s a pool, maybe there’s a small little pond, if you see a little spin or a little twister, be careful. This could really happen.”
– The guys broadcasted their show from Patriots training camp at Gillette Stadium on Friday. The team provided food for the media that included chicken fajitas and refried beans.
Benz didn’t just take advantage of the free food, he did so in the most amusing way.
“During the interview [with Kevin Millar], I look over and Tim’s got the microphone over his head and he’s eating during the interview, which isn’t the problem,” Merloni said. “He’s eating the refried beans, he doesn’t have a fork so he’s eating them with his hands.
“Not only did he not have a fork but he didn’t have a napkin. What were you using to wipe your hands?” Merloni asked.
Benz responded: “My sock.”
“You are improvising, adapting and overcoming,” Fauria said.
– Benz talked about an unusual message he got on Facebook recently from someone named April. The message was vaguely worded and clearly spam.
“I was reading this and I was laughing out loud because I had never seen something like this from Facebook sent directly to me in my Yahoo account and I’m thinking, who falls for this crap. How does this ever work on anyone? How does anybody get duped into this?” Benz said.
Said Fauria: “You should actually just write back and have it be comical for yourself. Get a back and forth going.”
