Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Imus in the morning.
Imus: Now I got these new ear monitors from this outfit in
California. What did I pay for them? So, I paid for everything, by the way.
Great. Anyway. Well, why am I not plugging stuff that I got for free. Ottoman Ears, this outfit's called. Great outfit. They made these
ear monitors, so now of course, other people here at Fox want them because,
well because the Iman has them. Anyway, you put them in your ears. I mean,
Dagan, she's in there dying to have a pair. She doesn't even had an iPad,
so she has nothing. So anyway, you put them in. They fit exactly, like a
mold for your ear, so you can't keep taking them out all the time, like you
can headphones. I unplug it, so then I can't hear anything, but at least
I'm not listening to the commercials and stuff. But what I do when I am
here in the studio if Robin, or Tony are here, or this morning Desnon Micky
and Mervin Jackson, and Charles and Colin and Nat and all. As I talk to the
commercials and say hideous things to them, the mike is not supposed to be
B: But you got your headset unplugged.
Imus: And yesterday I had my headset unplugged and I was talking to,
I don't know if you around the country has heard this or not, we'll play a
little bit of the lovely little children singing the Kars for Kids
commercial. 1-877- Kars 4 Kids. K-A-R-S Kars 4 kids. 1-877- Kars 4 kids. Donate
your car today. 1-877- Kars 4 Kids. K-A-R-S Kars 4 kids. 1-877- Kars 4
kids. Donate your car today
Imus: Think we get the point here. Thank you. So yesterday when the
little children were singing, I was telling them to shut up, and other icky
things apparently I was saying to them.
C: I heard something else.
Imus: I might have...
C: Go somewhere is what I heard.
B: Suggesting a destination.
Imus: I explained to the little dopes that they weren't getting my
Bentley. Well, that of course, was just to make Charles laugh.
C: And it did.
Imus: I don't know if Rob and Rooney were here or not, but I
certainly didn't intend for the sponsor to be listening to think that
that's the way I really felt about the little children. Let me tell you how
much I love this Kars for Kids commercial.
D: Break it down, Imus.
Imus: I was thinking about putting it on the Imus ass record too.
Imus: I actually was going to have the Blind Boys of Alabama do a
gospel version of Kars for Kids. They'll sing it complete with the phone
number. Now, I am not going to give my Bentley to them till it gets a few
more miles on it, but I want to encourage all my rich friends and the rest
of them with these high end cars to turn them over to these lovely little
children and their Kars for Kids. It's ten minutes after the hour.
C: Great idea.
Imus: I mean, I was just talking to some woman who's doing a
commercial here about losing weight or something, well I was just, if the
mike would have been on, I might have to really have gone through that
whole thing while . . .
C: Oh, for sure. Satellite trucks and all the stuff.
Imus: Satellite trucks and all that stuff on swearing at the woman. So
anyway, it's ten minutes after the hour. It's not I want the little Kars
for Kids children to feel bad.
C: No, of course not.
Imus: And I don't want your guys to go to hell, as I managed to just
C: Just him being stupid.
Imus: Yes. It is ten minutes after the hour. Anyway. . .
