GLENN BECK PROGRAM
GLENN: The only thing that I have -- well, I will tell you the Time-Warner Center's a little obnoxious. I have walked into the Time-Warner Center and went, what is this? This is where CNN and, you know, Time magazine and all, you know, everything that Time-Warner does, all in the Time-Warner Center, and in our lobby is a giant, I think it's supposed to resemble a tree.
STU: Is it? I -- well...
GLENN: It is kind of in the shape -- it's a little more pointed at the top than it is at the bottom but it's all made out of snowflakes and then it changes color from purple to pink to red to...
STU: What's wrong with some pink snowflakes? What says Christmas more than fuchsia snowflakes?
GLENN: I know it screams Christmas to me. My gosh, it's Christmas. I feel it every time I walk in. And then they have -- are the wreaths fuchsia as well or kind of a purplish?
STU: I don't even notice these thing anymore.
GLENN: I can't take it.
STU: I know in the mall area at the Time-Warner Center they have a giant light display with I guess again what I would picture as snow flaky type displays.
GLENN: But not too much like a star.
STU: Not too much a star Bethlehem.
GLENN: It's a star like you're a star, yeah.
STU: Definitely just a scientific star. It's not a --
GLENN: They are not exactly Christmas ornaments.
STU: No, no, no.
GLENN: But they kind of resemble Christmas ornaments.
STU: But then they're lit in fuchsia.
GLENN: They are.
STU: They are. They literally are.
GLENN: I don't know when pink and purple and fuchsia became the Christmas colors or even a holiday color. What holiday is pink, purple and fuchsia?
STU: Pretty exciting.
GLENN: It's a good one. It is a good one. So, you know, I'm never offended by somebody saying happy holidays unless they are intentionally trying to not offend. I can't take it anymore. Stop with the not -- you're going to be offended!
STU: Well, no, you're not. That's the point. You are not going -- no one is offended by these things.
GLENN: No, wait, wait, wait, wait. In life you are going to be offended.
GLENN: In life somebody is going to say something to you that is going to offend you.
GLENN: Get over it.
STU: But, you know, I don't necessarily need my companies that are selling me toilet paper to stay stands. They can if they wish, certainly free to do that. But I don't need them to take stands.
GLENN: I was on -- did I tell you this? I was on a flight. Where was I coming back from, the West Coast some place and I'm on a flight and I don't want to get this wrong. Was it Delta? I think it was Delta. Maybe. I better not say because I don't know for sure.
STU: You just said.
GLENN: Well, I take it back.
STU: It wasn't Delta?
GLENN: Stations, edit that out. Crap, we're live. One of the airlines that I was flying did a promotion for breast cancer. Now, the breast cancer thing, you know, you have to be a moron to be pissed off by, you know, raising money for breast cancer.
STU: Very few people against breast cancer issues.
GLENN: Yes, and I'm not one of them. I'm for breast cancer research. But it's irritating to me because more people die of -- what's the cancer you get in the butt?
STU: You just -- what did you just do to signify that?
GLENN: I pointed.
STU: He's trying to say prostate cancer.
GLENN: Prostate cancer.
STU: But he, I believe pointed and I don't really know what you're doing.
GLENN: I just know it as butt cancer. So more people die in --
STU: I don't think that's true. I'm going to go with no for the block.
GLENN: Do you want to look it up?
STU: I will look it up. I believe it's true.
GLENN: I believe it's a bigger problem than breast cancer.
STU: Well, we're going to look that up right now.
GLENN: Google butt cancer.
STU: I don't think I want to go to the site that pops up.
GLENN: That really would be quite -- you've got to Google butt cancer just to see what comes up.
STU: No, no.
STU: All right.
GLENN: No, don't --
STU: I mean, now I've got to know. The first one is -- I can't -- the first one is just a question from a health organization and it says, lump on my butt cancer, question mark?
GLENN: Lump on my butt cancer?
STU: That's a really bad disease.
GLENN: That's a really bad disease. My disease has a disease. I'm really worried about this tumor, Doctor. It seems to have lumps growing on it. How long does it take you?
STU: Look at the society that we have right now. It's a society that --
GLENN: Yeah, I want my fries now! What do you mean fries are up in a minute?
STU: You're going to have to give me a second on this.
GLENN: So anyway, I'm on the plane and they start in on breast cancer and they say, you know, if you buy a certain drink, you know, the proceeds go for breast cancer, and originally I thought, that's kind of cool. And then they made the announcement a second time and I'm like, okay, you know, what am I flying activist airlines now? Like, I get it. Then the third time really became the unfriendly skies for me because they started lecturing us on how we hadn't given enough and they said, you know, we've really not sold a lot of these, and I don't remember what it was. I don't remember what it was. I was going to say it was like chocolate milk but that would probably be bad to sell for breast cancer. So it wasn't definitely milk but it was something that I didn't want to drink, and I don't remember what it was but I thought, well, I don't want that and, you know, and the stewardess said, we do this all the time now because our airline cares about breast cancer and we have really not raised very much money this flight and we know you guys care about breast cancer, blah, blah, blah, and I wanted to say, I care about you pulling into the terminal on time and delivering my luggage all intact. I care about breast cancer as well but that's not really your primary job and please don't lecture me on giving until it hurts. For the love of Pete. Because all I kept thinking is, they don't really care. Do you really think this giant corporate monolith cares? They don't care. Now, maybe some of the individuals do, but as a corporation they care? They're doing it for good PR. They want to be the airline that cares. Am I being too harsh? Notice nobody's -- wow, nobody wants to go on record with me, huh? I'm standing all alone.
