Morning Debriefing 2/21/11

1) Kyle Kinane Interview by Ron Babcock in a nudie mag for women called Pool Boy.  I’m just going to focus on the first six words of the previous sentence.  

2) Would you look at that…?  You can have a comedy special on Fuel TV.  On Feb. 28th, Chris Fairbanks will air his special that he taped at M-Bar in November of last year, though just like every other channel that airs comedy specials, it’ll be on 1AM.
