(The Ledger)   Two DJs have been taken off the air following an April fools joke gone awry. It would seem that joking about dihydrogen monoxide in the water supply is no laughing matter   (theledger.com) divider line 72

Eventually we will lower the intelligence requirement of the human race to zero.

Do these people realize that the air is full or Nitrogen, a key component of many explosive compounds?

Don't get me started on table salt! Not one, but TWO deadly elements!

But you still felt the need to defend stupid hippies

Remember, Fear mongering is only allowed when the story suits the US gov. NOT when its funny for people being epicly retarded and under educated.

Just remember when you watch the news, after every story imagine the anchor asking you 'ARE YOU SCARED YET?' If you answer no, then hes got another update/story to tell you about.

Hagbardr: And yet they completely ignore the dangers of hydroxic acid.


Still not as good as Oreo acid.

This screamed Florida tag.

Reminds me of the political campaign in a (Florida) election. It got nasty. One of the candidate's campaigns started rumours that their opponent was a practicing heterosexual.

A quick Google attaches a name and perhaps more accurate details to this story:

http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/archive/index.php/t-155203.html

Smathers told an audience of bumpkins that incumbent Claude Pepper was "a known extrovert," practiced "celibacy" before marriage, practiced "nepotism" with his sister-in-law, "matriculated" with women in college, that his sister was "a thespian" and his brother "a practicing homo sapien."

The version I heard was attributed to a Californian campaign, so this story may have become an urban legend (many true stories do as they wander away from historical fact).

Disclaimer: I am not, nor have I ever been Duck Duck Goose. But he sounds like my kind of guy.

The Straight Dope thread is worth reading when you get done with this one.

b0rscht: Stupid joke by people who think they are being oh so clever.

Plus, it should be hydrogen monoxide. H2S is hydrogen sulfide, after all.


The IUPAC name is actually "Oxidane", so no.  Either dihydrogen monoxide or Hydrogen Oxide is acceptable, but both are informal names for the chemical ("water" is actually the secondary IUPAC reference for the chemical, so they're both considered improper nomenclature form a scientific standpoint).

If you're going to be pedantic, at least get it right.

Were they taken off the air for being unoriginal and boring?

I know...  You'd think the environmental activist groups would publish a humiliation warning about it in a newsletter, or something...

Last I heard something in my kitchen may be killing me, and its something we all have! Needless to say, I've been stabbing everything in the kitchen.
OH NOES!   It's knives!

What a bunch of hacks.   What a chickenshiat station manager.   Who listens to this garbage?  It's worth less than what you pay for it.

ristst: Is there a way to expand this and remove DJs from other markets?  I'm talking *morning* DJs here.


How about morning shows altogether? I turn on the radio to listen to music, not a bunch of giggling retards dropping innuendo then giggling like 3rd graders for the next five minutes at a penis reference.

It's like 20 stations playing a Dane Cook routine.

I always like the gag of "Ending Women's Sufferage", and getting people to sign petitions for that.

I'd wager that one could get an actual petition initiative together, get the signatures, and have it pass.

/For the lulz...

After the Shroud of Turin thread, you've got absolutely no room to make fun of others for being a bit on the slow side, much less full blown retarded.

Seems like a pretty harmless prank to get fired over.

It's not like someone died because of it.

I was thinking the same, but it occured to me...., they're the face of the station, so to speak, and represent all the people they advertise for, etc.

It may make people look/feel stupid and result in less revenue from the resentment, I can see a legit problem there.

Never piss on your listeners.

Tom_Slick: Little Johnny took a drink, but he will drink no more, for what he thought was H2O was H2SO4


I feel a little lame that I not only got that joke, but laughed heartily at it.

People are stupid, so it logically follows that radio DJs should lose their jobs because of that.

This.

And while we are at it, lets make it illegal for DJ's to have telephones.

People still listen to radio?  Really?
 
2013-04-03 02:53:25 PM
There aren`t any dj`s on the station I listen to for most of the day. They have the morning annoying show (made to be annoying so work seems better) then a bunch of songs in a row interspersed with adverts.

Works for me. If they stop playing what I want then I plug my phone in and put a playlist of my own on.
