Here are the highlights from Friday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear to segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.
– A 19-year old Boston University with no driver’s license drove his Maserati close to 100 mph and ran a red light on the rainy streets in the Back Bay near at an intersection where two people were killed earlier this year, police said. Zeguang Xu, 19, pleaded not guilty to operating without a license, providing a false name to police, speeding, failure to stop and negligent operation.
“He thinks it’s OK to go 100?” Callahan asked. “He owns a Maserati? I hate this.”
Replied Dennis: “Daddy put it on the platinum card.”
Said Callahan: “So this punk, he’s 19. I hate his father even more than I hate him. It’s one thing to buy your kid a car, can you imagine buying your kid a Maserati?”
“It’s one of these things where it’s inevitable, you buy a kid a car like this, dumb kid like this is going to die,” Minihane said.
– The movie “Gone Girl” that stars Ben Affleck and is directed by David Fincher opens up in theaters Friday. Affleck has a scene in the movie where he is briefly nude.
The hosts ran a clip of Affleck discussing the compromising part in the movie.
“He just admitted he has warts,” Callahan said surprisingly.
“Genital warts,” replied Dennis.
Said Callahan: “He didn’t say genital, that’s implied.”
– An NBC cameraman working in Liberia tested positive for Ebola, the network reported. Ashoka Mukpo will return to the United States for treatment. He is fourth American person believed to have contracted the disease while in Liberia.
“Oh, good,” Callahan said sarcastically. “Let’s get as many people back here who have Ebola.”
Said Minihane: “We are all going to have Ebola within that same three weeks.”
Asked Callahan: “Why do we let any flight from Liberia get anywhere near our shores?”
