– Actor and longtime bachelor George Clooney, who had vowed he would never get married again, married human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin less than a year after they met. Fellow actors Bill Murray, Matt Damon and John Krasinski were among the guests.

“She’s not in his top-10 list of girlfriends,” Dennis said.

Replied Callahan: “Yeah, but she’s the marrying kind, that’s the difference.”

The wedding was held in Venice, Italy, a place that Callahan did not seem to be fond of.

“They had it in that filthy city of Venice,” Callahan said. “Just a disgusting, dirty place. It’s the ultimate tourist trap. … It’s dirty, the water’s filthy, it smells.”

– “Saturday Night Live” began its 40th season on NBC this weekend. The show was hosted by actor Chris Pratt and had an opening skit about the problems with domestic abuse in the NFL.

The hosts played a clip of the the football skit, and they were not amused by the attempted humor.

“It goes on for 3 1/2 minutes and there’s not a chuckle,” Callahan said.  “It was so uncomfortably bad.”

“Chris Pratt was terrible as [Roger] Goodell,” Minihane said. “Not even terrible, he wasn’t funny. It was awful.”

Said Dennis: “Maybe [SNL] is finally like [Derek] Jeter. It stayed a year too long.”

– The National Science Foundation spent $300,000 on a study that dealt with human interaction with bicycles. A House committee calls the study a “waste.” The purpose of the project was to encourage more Americans to bike to lower their carbon footprint.

“I think most people know by the time they’re like 8 how to interact with a bicycle,” Callahan said.

Here are the highlights from Friday’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.

– MMA star Gina Carano is slated to appear in two movies over the next few months, meaning there will be no fight against Ronda Rousey in the immediate future.

“I don’t want to see her act anymore,” said a disappointed Benz. “She’s great to look at on the screen, but I want to see that fight.”

“What’s in it for her other than obviously the money?” Fauria wondered. “It’s a lose-lose situation for her, because she’s the white hat, she’s the good-looking one of the two.”

Added Merloni: “Do you think she wants to fight the rest of her life? She’s doing MMA, she made some money, more importantly people noticed her. Now she’s in movies. She doesn’t want to keep fighting.”

– In a video posted to Youtube, a woman tells a 4-year-old boy that a girl he likes is interested in another boy, sending the kid into tears.

The hosts were unanimous in saying the woman was out of line to videotape the conversation and embarrass the boy by sharing it with the world.

“What a sadistic [expletive],” Benz said, adding: “Worst mother of the year.”

“What a bitch,” said Merloni.

“DCYS should scoop in there and save that kid,” Benz said. “Now I’m upset. I’m mad about this.”

– A man in was arrested In Jasper, Indiana, after allegedly driving a stolen Bobcat front-loader down a city street while intoxicated. Korey Groover allegedly knocked down several street signs and hit light poles, then used the bobcat to knock down a door to a medical building, where he was found lying on the floor. The Florida man was charged with DUI and felonies including drug possession and criminal mischief, and the estimated damage he left behind was $10,000.

“They have brakes, those things are street legal, right?” Fauria said. “They have brake lights.”

Said Merloni: “He was blitzed.”

The guys opened the show by discussing Derek Jeter's final performance in the Bronx.

Here are the highlights from Friday’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.

– Five weeks ago, a Haverhill man bought a winning $1 million lottery ticket. Earlier this week, police raided Gary L. Bond’s house and found cocaine, marijuana, EBT cards, a machete and brass knuckles. He was charged for cocaine and marijuana possession as well as trafficking.

His wife, Fritzlaine Liautaud, faced the same charges, but posted her and Bond’s bail earlier this week.

Said Callahan: “It’s one thing to get caught, you got caught. You’re a liar, you’re a cheater, you’re stealing from the taxpayers, you’re dealing drugs. But then there’s this indignation. How dare you?”

Continued Callahan: “How is he given an EBT card? You walk in the [welfare] office, and they just say, ‘Here you go’?”

Replied a sarcastic Dennis: “His back hurts, Gerry. He can’t work and provide for his family.”

Said Minihane: “So I can go get one?”

– Governor Deval Patrick said Thursday that he has no intention of succeeding Eric Holder as attorney general. Many have speculated a role for Patrick in the Barack Obama administration, especially since Patrick is going on a trip to Washington, but Patrick continued to deny it.

“Wouldn’t it be a lot fun to hang out with Obama and Patrick?” Minihane asked. “Go play 18 with them?”

Said Callahan: “I was just hoping he’d take the gig and go before the Senate and get out of our lives.”

– A Canadian man unsuccessfully attempted to smuggle 51 live turtles over the Detroit border and into Canada when he taped the reptiles to his body. Kai Xu tried to put the turtles under his sweatpants, but he was caught by agents near the border.

Asked Dennis: “How big were the turtles?”

Replied Minihane: “They’re like those little snapping turtles.”

Said Dennis: “Well, you’ve got to be careful then, if they’€™re snapping turtles. Like, where you put them in your sweatpants.”

– Robert Kennedy Jr. and new wife Cheryl Hines recently purchased a $5 million home in Malibu, California. The house was bought from award-winning composer David Kurtz.

Callahan didn’t have many nice things to say about Kennedy.

“All you need to know about Robert Kennedy Jr. is he’s been called the dumbest Kennedy,” Callahan said.

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.

– The Comedy Central show “South Park” took aim at the Washington Redskins in Wednesday night’s season premiere, making fun of the team for keeping the nickname despite protests that it’s racially offensive.

The hosts were impressed that the show took out injured quarterback Robert Griffin III, who had appeared in the promos, and quickly replaced him with Kirk Cousins.

At the end of the episode, the players quit the team in protest and team owner Dan Snyder takes to the field himself to play the Cowboys and is massacred.

“Dan Snyder became the hero at the end of the episode,” Benz said. “The owners looked bad, [Roger] Goodell looked bad, the entire NFL looked bad, they made fun of Ray Rice, [but] they made Dan Snyder into the sympathetic figure. That was my favorite part about it.”

– A Peruvian woman claims the popular Disney movie “Frozen” is based on her life story and she is suing for $250 million. Isabella Tanikumi says Disney plagiarized her 2010 autobiography “Living My Truth,” which detailed her childhood in the Andean mountains.

“She had mystical powers?” Fauria wondered.

“She says they stole her life story and she feels like this situation has ruined her life,” Merloni said.

” ‘Rocky’ was about me. That’s my life story,” Fauria joked. “I’m sure it’s yours, too, and every other Italian.”

– Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan owns a restaurant in Florida, and the dress code has led to accusations that the establishment is biased.

Among the rules for evening admission: No excessively baggy attire, no low-hanging pants, no hats facing sideways or back-facing, no oversized or excessive jewelry, no do-rags, skull caps or bandanas.

“It’s that urban stereotype that they don’t want in there,” Fauria said.
