Happy BIrthday--"Ironic" Division

Just heard on NPR on the way home from dropping kidlets at school. Two "radio guys" have birthdays today, both in their fifties.

Rush Limbaugh.

And Howard Stern.

And despite initial appearances, they aren't really as different as they portray themselves. They each have to do something to fill many many hours of radio air time. They work in an environment where saying anything--however stupid--is better than saying nothing. They both talk and act as if they are relevant to the state of the world, although they are more accurately merely "entertainment" (and I'm using the word loosely here). And they share a birthday. Sometimes the universe does like it's little jokes, doesn't it?

Okay, now I have to go delete these pictures from my hard drive and go shower. Eeewwww....
