Kelly & Michael: Kelly Ripa Wet Bob
Michael Strahan said that Kelly Ripa is a style trendsetter among women. After she got a bob haircut, there is a trend story in the paper about the Wet Bob, featuring Beyonce, Malin Akerman, and runway models. Michael claims Kelly started this, but Ripa pointed out that she has copied Beyonce as well, in that upsetting “Single Ladies” video we were forced to revisit yet again.
Kelly said that when her hair is short, it’s harder to know what to do with it. Michael said he gets two haircuts per week, because his hair is unmanageable when it is longer. Kelly implored him to grow it out sometime so that everyone can see what it might look like.
Kelly and Michael: New Zealand Name Bet
In New Zealand, there are some names that just are not allowed. Many of them imply royal titles or religious figures of import. Justice, Prince, and Lady are all on the list. But a man who lost a bet was given a 99-character name after losing a poker bet. His friends gave him an outlandish new moniker, which is nearly impossible to abbreviate in a meaningful way.
“When he needs to fill out some paperwork, he’ll regret it,” Michael Strahan said, pointing out it may not fit in the box when shopping online, or on the small space of a credit card. Now he has gotten a new passport with the lengthy title.
Kelly & Michael: New York City Weather
New York City finally got some nice weather for itself this week. Kelly compared the scene to the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz coming outside after the house lands in the classic movie, because it is safe to be outside once again. Michael said one of his neighbors wore tights and a tank top outside, which he thought was a little sparse for the weather, but it’s a sign of the changing temperatures.
Kelly Ripa hates leggings as pants, while Michael dislikes short shorts with the V on the side. The hosts also lamented denim shorts whose pockets are longer than the legs of the shorts. New York can expect a little rain but warmer temperatures on Wednesday, followed by a return to 20s and possible snow on Thursday.
Kelly and Michael: Taxi Driver Snake Prank
Michael Strahan walks more often than he takes a taxi. But there is a story Kelly Ripa wanted to share. A comedian and taxi driver has made a series of YouTube hidden camera videos involving a boa constrictor. The reactions may be funny, but Michael said he would want to throttle the driver.
Kelly said you never know whether someone could have a heart condition or health problem. The prank victims probably sign releases agreeing to let the video be used online, and she wondered whether that is because they are so relieved that they were not actually in danger.
