—  CNN host Don Lemon had an interview with another one of the Bill Cosby sexual assault accusers, Joan Tarshis, who said she was forced to perform oral sex on Cosby. She claimed, like many others, that Cosby drugged her. Lemon said there could’ve been a way for her to not perform the act, using her teeth as a “weapon.”

Said Callahan of Lemon: “This guy’s out of his mind.”

“How does he have his job?” asked a stunned Minihane.

Said Mutnansky: “You’re a TV star, isn’t there a producer most of the time in your ear. Like some producer saying, ‘Maybe don’t go down this road about biting this guy’s crank off.’ … Give me a break.”

“Don Lemon, I think he’s almost embracing this madness, though,” said Minihane. “I don’t know how well it’s going to end.”

Replied Callahan: “That’s the last hope of someone who actually watches CNN. Anderson Cooper isn’t getting it done.”

— People magazine named its annual Sexiest Man Alive this week. The hosts had differing opinions on who should take the title, but the winner turned out to be actor Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in “The Avengers.” He beat out finalists Chris Pratt and Matthew McConaughey for the award.

Callahan said he liked how McConaughey was a final candidate.

“That’s a good choice, but he’s a little too trendy right now,” Callahan said

“Too skinny now, too. I like a man with a little beef,” replied Minihane. “I like a little beef, something to love. Isn’t McConaughey too skinny?”

Said Callahan: “He was, I don’t know that he still is. He was skinny for a part, for a role.”

When Callahan found out the winner was Hemsworth, he could not think of more than one character the actor played: “What else is he besides Thor?”

Said Minihane: “He was in that Ron Howard movie, the race car movie Ron Howard did. Remember that?”

“No,” replied Callahan.

— Charles Manson’s fiancee’s mother said she will not attend the couple’s upcoming jailhouse wedding and won’t buy the two a gift for their marriage. Afton Elaine Burton, 26, plans to marry the criminal, and her mother, Melissa Burton, does not exactly approve.

After hearing a clip of Afton Elaine talking, Minihane was a bit skeptical of her as person.

“Could you, like, hang out with her?” asked Minihane.

“No. I don’t think Manson is spending a lot of time with her either,” replied Callahan.

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.

— A 16-year-old girl without a license was caught driving southbound in a northbound lane on two highways in New Hampshire on Sunday morning. This girl reached a speed of 118 mph as she drove her family’s Toyota RAV4 on interstates 93 and 293. State troopers chased her down until she ran over spike strips that stopped her.

“A Toyota SUV can do 118 [mph]?” asked a shocked Dennis.

“And the story says through the tolls,” said Callahan.

Said Minihane: “Yes, she went right through the tolls.”

“You better have good aim,” replied Dennis.

Replied Callahan: “This is the craziest teenager, and I feel bad for her parents, must be tough. But have you ever heard of anyone this nuts? … A RAV4, at 118, with cops chasing in the wrong lane down 93, it’s a miracle she’s alive. And you know the next shoe to drop? We’re going to find out she was texting. Probably texting her boyfriend.”

“She’s a pretty good driver, could be a stunt driver,” replied a sarcastic Minihane.

The hosts played a news clip in which the girl’s mother spoke about the incident. The mother had no idea what her daughter was doing and said the 16-year-old told her that she left something in the car in order to get the car keys in the first place.

“She left something in the car?” asked Dennis

Replied Callahan: “Yeah, her brains.”

— A couple refused to leave Ten’s Show Club in Salisbury after security guards said the two engaged in inappropriate behavior and touching. After the couple did not leave when asked by the club’s staff, responding police officers arrested the two for disorderly conduct.

Said Minihane: “I feel like everything should be in play here. So what, you’re at a strip club, it’s a sexual place. Why not?”

“It’d be messier than this studio if they allowed them to do anything,” Callahan said.

“Get a room,” said Dennis.

Asked Callahan: “Isn’t that part of the fun, you go there, you get aroused and go home or you go to your hotel room?”

Minihane said he isn’t the biggest fan of going to strip clubs.

“Why would you walk into a strip club, now?” asked Minihane. “Doesn’t it feel antiquated, strip clubs, almost?”

“They were inspired, they were inspired,” replied Dennis.

— Bill Cosby faced questions this weekend after more allegations emerged about his possible sexual assaults. His appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” was canceled and the comedian was asked if there were any truth to the accusations during an NPR interview. Cosby only shook his head and did not provide a verbal response to the questions.

The hosts were not pleased with the way host Scott Simon apologized to Cosby for asking the questions.

“What’s the name of this stooge again? Did he apologize enough?” asked Callahan.

The hosts mocked Simon’s voice and how he said, “This question gives me no pleasure.”

Said Callahan: “That’s how you should start Tom Brady off, ‘This gives me no pleasure.’ “
