“Rush Limbaugh Classic: Dan’s Bake Sale”
If you’ve been a daily listener of Rush’s for more than 5 years, you have probably heard a reference or two from Ma Ha Rushie about “Dan’s Bake Sale,” the man that “threatened” to “bake several small poodles,”…and more.
Rush replayed, in a 4-part series, “20th Anniversary Flashback: The Dan’s Bake Sale Phenomenon on August 1, 2008” . Sorry, you have to be a subscriber to Rush 24/7 to hear/view all 4 parts on his website. (I used to be a subscriber; I’m not currently.)
Here’s a part of this video that I transcribed (before I realized that Rush had one available). My transcription begins at the 4:40 mark in this video:
Rush: “So, we have ‘Nick’ from the high mountains of New Mexico on the phone. Nick, I’m glad you called. Welcome to the Rush Limbaugh Program. How are you, sir?”
Nick: Heh heh heh….that old cowboy from up there in Ft. Collins?
Nick: We’re goin’ to his bake sale.
Rush: You’re gonna go to his bake sale?
Rush: Wait a second. Wait a se…..you mean you have a donation for Dan’s Bake Sale in Ft. Collins?
Nick: Yes, sir. Well, we gonna bake several small poodles…now, this is not gonna make the animal rights people happy… we’re gonna bake several small poodles and one Mastiff. We got 3 German Shepherds, 14 cats & one small pony that we’re gonna take up there.”
Rush: (laughing) Oh Nick, nobody’ll show up if you do that.
Nick: Oh, no, they’d love it. You know, you put a lot of Heinz 57 on it & you cook it in Coors beer…
Nick: …and they’d love it.
