— AC/DC’s drummer Phil Rudd has been charged with attempting to have two men killed. The 60-year-old appeared in court in New Zealand Thursday charged with attempting to procure the murder of two men and also threatening to kill, possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis.

“Why was he mad at the guy he wanted killed?” Dennis asked. “Sounds like a drug deal gone bad.”

Joked Callahan: “He could have gone by the Dino manual, you don’t leave any finger prints. You don’t have any meth.”

— There has been a recent back-and-forth between President Obama and principal owner/chairman of the Hornets Michael Jordan. In a recent interview Jordan criticized Obama’s golf game. Obama fired back earlier this week.

“But there is no doubt that Michael is a better golfer than I am,” Obama told Jaimin’€™ 98.3’€™s Earl Stokes, via the N.Y. Daily News. “Of course, if I was playing twice a day for the last 15 years, then that might not be the case.

“He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats — or the Hornets.”

The hosts didn’t like the interview with all the laughter that took place.

“Is that on like the laughing hyena show?” Dennis asked.

Replied Callahan: “[Obama] thinks if he played more, he’d be good as the greatest athlete is U.S. history?”

— Many parents are upset that ABC aired a sex scene on the show “Scandal” moments after a Halloween Charlie Brown special.

“Seven or eight [years old] and you’re supposed to be subjected to a wild sex scene, which there was never such a thing on when we were kids, even a generation ago,” Callahan said.

Added Minihane: “I look at it, selfishly, if I am watching with my daughter and she asks, I have no answer. What the hell is … I don’t know.”

“If you don’t get to the clicker in time, what do you say?” replied Callahan.

The top stories of the day as recounted by Kirk Minihane.
The guys opened the show by discussing the election and Adrian Peterson's plea deal.

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’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.

— 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.
