Kelly and Michael: Jimmy Kimmel Expecting a Baby
Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, have announced that they are expecting a child. Strahan will be a guest on his show later in the week, so he and Kelly decided they needed to brainstorm the proper baby gift. Michael’s first idea was a big box of diapers, and Kelly’s idea was shares of Disney stock, which is apparently doing exceptionally well lately.
Kelly & Michael: Got Milk Vs Milk Life
Remember the popular Got Milk? ads from the 1990s? Michael said he did one after winning the Super Bowl. But with milk consumption on the decline (down 25% since the ‘70s), the campaign is coming to an end.
Michael said he used to drink a gallon of milk a day. The new promotional campaign is Milk Life, which Kelly thought was a good idea, but Michael thought it was cartoonish. Do you like the new slogan?

Rhesus monkeys produce 35% more fat and protein for their male children, whereas female babies receive more calcium. Michael wondered what happens if you have twins of different genders.
Kelly & Michael: Polar Vortex Prevents Flash Flooding?
Temperatures are falling, but news reports claim the Polar Vortex’s return is a good thing. That’s good news because it could prevent flash flooding due to the snow and ice that is already on the ground in the Northeast. Michael said this all could have been prevented if it hadn’t snowed so much in the first place.
“We’ve gone to a level where we now think we’re warm in 50-degree weather,” Kelly said, whereas in California those temperatures would be considered a cold snap. Ripa said it always rains when she is on the West Coast when she visits, like this upcoming weekend for the Academy Awards.
Though it was exceptionally cold in the eastern United States in January 2014, it was the fourth warmest on record for much of the rest of the world. Alaska and parts of California experienced temperatures as much as 15 degrees above normal.
Kelly and Michael: Scotland Soccer Swearing
Soccer fans in Scotland shouted so much profanity that the broadcast of the game had to be delayed for six hours to edit out the loud swearing from the background noise in the stadium. Kelly Ripa said that a handful of guests have dropped some shocking curse words on live TV.
