In Wednesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB, Christian Fauria challenged Lou Merloni and Tim Benz to a game of guessing the Staples catchphrase, ‘€˜That was easy,”€™ in different languages.

(To listen to audio of the segment, click here.)

“€œI went to Staples, and you know that little red button that that says, ‘That was easy,’ Staples sells another one that has up to like 12 different countries on it and they say it in a different language, so I obviously got that one in honor of the World Cup,” Fauria said. “I was just kind of playing with it, trying to figure out if I could guess which translation of ‘€˜That was easy’€™ went with which country.”

Fauria had five ‘€˜That was easy’€™ challenges for Merloni and Benz, with Portugal, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Italy being the five possible answers.

It did not take much time for Merloni to guess that the first ‘€˜That was easy’€™ was Italian.

“I did that one for you,” Fauria said. €œ”I was like, ‘€˜If he doesn’t know what this one is.’ … I made sure.”

Benz quickly picked up on the German version of the catchphrase€™ later on in the segment.

“€œIt sounds like it’€™s English,”€ Fauria said. “Maybe if you treat it like a Beatles album and slow it down.”

Benz also able to guess the Brazilian saying, impressing Merloni and Fauria.

“€œTim, you’€™re pretty good at this,” Merloni said.

It wasn’t a perfect showing for Merloni during the game, as he guessed that the Chinese saying was from the Netherlands.

“€œSee, I told you, I’€™m really good at geography,”€ Merloni said.

After the game, Fauria declared Benz the winner — something that Merloni did not necessarily agree with.

“He kept saying Germany for every single one,”€ Merloni said.

Here’s a recap of Wednesday’s edition of Headlines with Kirk Minihane on Dennis & Callahan:

Bob Dylan’s ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ lyrics sell for $2 million

A manuscript of the song was sold for $2.045 million at auction Tuesday.

“It’s a grew, great, great song, whether you like Bob Dylan or not,” Minihane said. “My point is, if I had $2 million and spent it on that, is it an investment? Is it going to be worth more?”

“Not all of these people do it as an investment,” John Dennis said. “They do it because they have enough to say ‘I’d like to own that.’”

Source: Cobb father knew child was left in hot car 

The Georgia father whose son was left in the back of his car for seven hours, resulting in his son’s death, reportedly knew his son had been left there.

Justin Ross Harris had claimed that he didn’t realize his son had been left there until he was driving back from work, over seven hours later, but there is evidence that he know his son had been left in the car all day.

Harris is being charged with murder.

Gary Oldman apologizes 

A day after making headlines for his rant against political correctness, actor Gary Oldman sent a statement of apology to both the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

He did not, however, apologize to the other people insulted, including gay people, black people and Nancy Pelosi.

In Tuesday’€™€™s edition of Three for all€ on Middays with MFB, Lou MerloniChristian Fauria and Tim Benz discussed why New Englanders are lazy and dirty, as well as a Massachusetts man’s problem with a woman watching the World Cup.

(To listen to the audio of the segment, click here.)

Fauria found a survey in The Washington Post done by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that gathered information to determine how Americans spend their days.

“So what they did is they took a bunch of maps showing how Americans spend the variation of their time,” Fauria said.

One element to the study was sleep time per day, with Alabama and Mississippi topping the list at over nine hours per day.

“Down there, Christian, things move at a slower pace,” Benz said.

Fauria added: ”So I figured the food had something to do with it. Lots of heavy, greasy food, eating a lot. Because normally when the surveys come out regarding healthiest cities, the southern states don’t even make a blip on the radar.”

But even Massachusetts was up on the list, averaging eight hours, 42 minutes of sleep per day.

“I don’t even know anyone who gets eight hours of sleep,” Merloni said.

It only got worse for New England when it came to hygiene.

“When it comes to spending time doing grooming activities, like washing, dressing and just generally getting one’s act together for the day, Vermont is a notable outlier,” Fauria said.

Benz responded: ”How much time does it really take if you’re not going to comb or get the bee’s wax out of your hair and put on the same Birkenstocks and cargo shorts that you had the day before? How much time does this really take?”

The last area they mentioned was time spent working, and both Massachusetts and Maine ranked near the bottom.

“People from New England, we take from this, don’t work hard and they smell bad,” Benz said.

– Benz read a story about an Amherst man complaining to his South American neighbor because she was watching the World Cup too loudly while he was trying to watch NASCAR and listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The woman told police that the man was scolding her for taking jobs away from Americans.

“You think that dude had a wife beater and just drank bud heavy?” Merloni said.

Benz added: “You can’t get more ‘Merica than that.”

Tuesday’€™s edition of Headlines saw Kirk Minihane bring three stories to the table on Dennis & Callahan, ranging from an odd Gary Oldman rant to the latest news on the young couple that was killed Saturday.

Police seek charges against driver in fatal Back Back crash

The woman behind the wheel of the car that set off a crash that killed a couple walking on the side walk in the Back Bay did not have a driver’€™s license.

Ghuzlan Alghazali will be charged with two counts of motor vehicular homicide by negligent operation, while Mohamaed Alfageeh may also be charged for misleading investigators. Alfageed allegedly told detectives that he was behind the wheel.

Twenty-eight-year-old John Lanzillotti and 27-year-old Jessica Campbell were both killed in the crash as they walked on the sidewalk.

‘€œThey were watching this beautiful sunset arm and arm, and these maggots who don’€™t even have a license and had to be driving like maniacs [kill them],’€ Gerry Callahan said.

American Student Ends up Trapped in Giant Vagina Sculpture

An American exchange student got stuck inside a vagina sculpture after going inside it on a dare. Rather than getting a laugh out of it, 22 rescue workers were required to save the 20-year-old student.

From there, the conversation devolved to a debate about 1998 movie ‘€œThere’€™s Something About Mary.’€

Gary Oldman on Mel Gibson’€™s anti-Semitic remarks: ‘€˜Take a f**king joke. Get over it’€™

Actor Gary Oldman went a bit crazy in an interview with Playboy, ranting over what is and isn’€™t acceptable to say. He defended Mel Gibson, who caught heat for anti-Semitic comments in 2006, as he argued against political correctness.

‘€œI don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things,’€ Oldman said.

‘€œWe’re all f**king hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n***** or that f**king Jew?

‘€œI’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy.

‘€œOr maybe I should just strike that and say ‘€˜the N word’€™ and ‘€˜the F word’€™, although there are two F words now.’€

He also argued that talk show hosts Bill Maher and John Stewart get away with such language, while others don’€™t.

‘€œWell, if I called Nancy Pelosi a c’€”’€” ‘€“and I’ll go one better, a f’€”’€”’€” useless c’€”’€” ‘€“I can’t really say that. But Bill Maher and Jon Stewart can, and nobody’s going to stop them from working because of it,’€ Oldman said. ‘€œBill Maher could call someone a f’€”- and get away with it. He said to Seth MacFarlane this year, ‘€˜I thought you were going to do the Oscars again. Instead they got a lesbian.’€™ He can say something like that. Is that more or less offensive than Alec Baldwin saying to someone in the street, ‘€˜You f’€”-’€˜? I don’t get it.’€
