On 101.9 The End, probably the only really good morning show in Utah County, 'Chunga in the Morning,' Jimmy Chunga has a morning segment called "What's Happenin', Hot Stuff?" where people call in and just give their two cents. Well, I usually just listen, but someone said something so stupid I simply had to call and correct them. Because it's my duty to correct people I find stupid or just plain silly or wrong.
So they had a lot of people give their opinions on what to do about the gas problem, some people said "use a bike" some said "use corn" etc. But one person said "I heard that gas goes bad so we should just go to the gas station every day and fill up what we need then the gas station's gas will go bad and their prices will go down."
I'll give you a minute to pick up your brains from off the floor. Gasoline is made of a fossil fuel, folks. It's been in the ground millions of years. I don't think it's going bad anytime soon. So I just called, and it rang, so I waited and I heard
Chunga: "101.9 The End, who's this?"
Me: "This is Austin! Whoooo! This is the greatest moment of my life! This is better than when my daughter Amy Sue was born!!!"
No, not really. I said "This is Austin!"
Chunga: Austin, what's happenin', hot stuff?
Austin: I just wanted to comment on the person saying gas will go bad? Gas is a fossil fuel, it's been around for awhile. I don't think it's gonna go bad.
Chunga: Yeah, Austin. I thought so too. I didn't know what to say to that person.
Austin: Yeah. That's all I wanted to say. Love you guys!
Chunga: We love you, Austin.
Ok, so Chunga doesn't love me. And my comment wasn't too deep or coherent. But right after I got off the radio I felt a rush that Chunga must feel every day of being on the air, and I thought "I'm gonna blog about this!"
