— DirecTV has a commercial in which “painfully awkward” Rob Lowe says he can’t urinate in public. Some shy bladder people are not pleased with the commercial and would like it pulled from TV.

CEO of the International Paruresis Association Steve Soifer said the commercial goes over the top to make fun of people with this issue. According to him, 7 percent of the population is affected by this problem.

Said Dennis: “So, people who can’t pee in public have a constituency and are offended by this? Is this a protected class?”

“I hate the commercial. But watching it and finding it offensive?” wondered Callahan.

The hosts ran a clip of Soifer talking about the shy bladder problems, saying people like this have trouble taking drug tests and keeping a job.

“You can’t hold a job?” asked an incredulous Callahan. “You tell me people can’t do it when they’re in a stall?”

Dennis said he found a solution for shy bladder people on Twitter.

“If you have shy bladder syndrome, multiply random numbers in your head,” Dennis said. “I didn’t seek this out. I just follow this Twitter handle. They have all kinds of interesting facts.”

— During her time as First Lady, Michelle Obama has asked Americans to have a healthier lifestyle. On Tuesday, she strayed from this when she said on a radio show that those who vote, especially for democrat candidates, could celebrate with fried chicken.

Said Dennis: “You know what shocks me about that? For a woman who is so concerned about her gorgeous figure, staying in shape, jumping jacks and making all the kids have good meals in school, that she would eat fatty foods like that.”

“Well, only on a cheat day,” replied Callahan. “That’s a celebration, that’s like New Year’s Eve. So if the democrat wins, she wants you to go out and get a bucket of fried chicken? What if Hillary [Clinton] said that?”

“If I’m a black guy or a woman at that age, I would feel so offended if they were playing that routine on me,” Minihane said.

— While Tom Brokaw helped MSNBC’s election coverage Tuesday night, a fire alarm sound went off. It was not any sort of actual alert, but  just Brokaw’s cell phone ringing.

“What a disastrous night for the lefties,” Callahan said.

“They’re reeling,” replied Minihane.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

— After last week Bill Belichick criticized meteorologists for their poor forecasting, some at The Weather Channel responded by making a video showing just how accurate their forecasts were for NFL games this past weekend.

“Kudos to them, I mean hey,” Fauria said. “That was great. Good for them.”

— David Leggio, goalie for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the AHL affiliate of the Islanders, was facing a 2-on-0 rush in a recent game, but decided to play some gamesmanship and flip the net over before facing a shot. The result was a penalty shot, in which the goalie stopped so his unique tactics worked. Some thought it was a cheap play, but see for yourself:

“You have to give the guy credit, right,” Merloni said. “The thought of it. They broke out 2-on-0 just short of center ice and so he had a little bit of time to think of it, but not that much and saw the 2-on-0, clearly, and just turned around and pushed he net off. He said, ‘Screw 2-on-0, let’s go 1-on-0.'”

“Fantastic video,” Benz added.

— On Jimmy Kimmel Monday night they showed clips of parents telling their kids they ate their Halloween candy and showing the kids’ reactions. As you might expect, the kids were very upset.

“This is continuing the theme of parents torturing their children on video for their own laughs,” Benz said.

The guys opened the show discussing the big day in Massachusetts.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™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.

— Actress Lena Dunham has cancelled two book upcoming tour dates in Europe because of accusations she molested her sister when they were children.

“To my Belgian readers, so very sorry to miss the Antwerp Book Fair today but I can’t wait to come back and eat fries with you. Much love,” the actress tweeted. “German readers: I am deeply sorry to miss tomorrow’s event in Berlin. I am so grateful for your energy and support. Mit viele liebe.”

This comes after Dunham has been criticized in the past for passages in her book, “Not That Kind Of Girl,” that detail experiences with his sister. One excerpt reads: “three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds … basically anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl.”

“Imagine this poor girl, how is she doing?” Callahan asked. “She was traumatized. This pervert, this pedophile, that is the least twisted.”

Added Callahan: “This is the best example of someone who has lived in a bubble. They are never criticized for anything. She could come on TV and fart and they would say, ‘Isn’t she creative, isn’t she hysterical.'”

— A constriction worker in New Jersey died Monday when a tape measure fell 50 stories and hit him on the head. The 1-pound tape measure fell from the belt of a worker on the 50th floor and struck construction equipment about 10 to 15 feet from the ground, spokeswoman Carly Baldwin said. It then ricocheted and hit 58-year-old Gary Anderson in the head, who had just stopped to speak with another worker who was in a pickup truck.

“I worry about this everyday,” Dennis said. “I worry about this every damn day after 10 o’clock. … Over there. Are you kidding me? Yesterday, or two days ago, they were up on that cherry-picker thing and they were putting these big-seamed stainless steel things that connect the windows that were probably like 10 feet long, just swinging and the guy was right over the door.”

— According to the Indian Express, a man who was upset his 14-year-old daughter was raped by a 45-year-old married man, called the man to his house, treated him to dinner and then killed him.

“The father called the medicine supplier over to his house saying he wanted to discuss some issue. He served him dinner. After the meal, the father overpowered the man and tied him to a chair. He got heated tongs and burned the supplier’€™s genitals before strangling him to death. He came to the police station and surrendered himself,” an officer said.

“Seems like your kind of guy, Dino,” Callahan said.

“Why wouldn’t you just poison him,” Dennis replied.

Here are the highlights from Monday’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.

— Chris Rock hosted “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend and was criticized for his opening monologue. Some said his jokes about the Boston Marathon bombing and the Freedom Tower in New York were uncalled for. The hosts thought the biggest offense of the whole thing was that the monologue just wasn’t funny.

“Oh, God awful,” Dennis said. “Get to the funny part.”

Replied Callahan: “It didn’t work, didn’t work.”

“If he had some funny joke about the Marathon, I would laugh,” Minihane said. “The outrage for the Marathon stuff isn’t that a big a deal to me. It’s just not funny.”

Said Callahan: “I can’t get into clean Chris Rock. It doesn’t work.”

The hosts heard another clip from Rock’s opening segment and were thoroughly unimpressed.

“That’s the luxury of being Chris Rock, he can say something that’s totally not funny and he’ll get laughs,” Callahan said.

Also during the episode, Prince gave an eight-minute performance, drawing rave reviews. The hosts, though, were not big fans of the pop star’s effort.

“He’s one of those guys, he’s in with the in crowd,” said Callahan. “It was awful.”

— Daredevil Nik Wallenda has made a living off of crazy stunts like walking on a tightrope over Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon. This weekend, he added another adventure to the list, as he tightroped across the Chicago skyline.

Said Miinihane: “I’m starting to think there’s some sort of gimmick here.”

The hosts ran a clip from the event in which Wallenda thanked the city of Chicago for the support and God for the opportunity.

“I just hate him,” Callahan said. “God was good to him.”

Said Minihane: “If there really were a god, was a god, were a god, he would just throw [Wallenda] off. … Aren’t you fighting more danger by letting this guy have some success? Because you know his kids are going to do it. His dad did it. His sisters do it.”

— A terminally ill Oregon woman who had been living with a stage 4 brain tumor took her life over the weekend as she said she would do months ago. Brittany Maynard believed in death-for-dignity laws, so she killed herself before the tumor could do the job.

“We talked about this last week, a couple of weeks ago. I was still shocked,” Callahan said. “I still didn’t think she’d do it on schedule.”

Replied Dennis: “I was more shocked about the quickness with which it came because when we last saw her interviewed, she looked OK, she sounded OK.”
