Something called Bottoms Up Comedy created and released a video tour of Kansas City last week. And it's pretty damn funny, complete with jokes about BBQ, coffee shops and various parts about town. The best joke is probably when our friendly guide tells us that you can see horses at Kemper Arena and "whores and douche bags" at the Power & Light. That's pretty solid. And there's a shot of Gilhouly's, one of the city's greatest bars. (Don't dispute this. I will fight you.)
Watch the video after the jump. Feel free to contribute your own jokes and tourism spots in the comments.
In January, when the new crop of U.S. senators is sworn in, a full 3 percent of the legislative body will be graduates of Mizzou. That is to say, three members of the Senate got their degrees at the university. Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill - who throttled Todd "Shut That Whole Thing Down" Akin in November, graduated from Mizzou in 1975. Newly elected New Mexico Sen. Martin Heinrich graduated in 1995 with a degree in mechanical engineering. Former Virginia Gov. Time Kaine, who was raised in Kansas City, is the third Mizzou grad. He earned a degree in economics in 1979. All three are Democrats.
The Columbia Tribunehas a nice article about the Mizzou trio and how they all came to Columbia and what they've done since leaving. As a Mizzou graduate myself, I say the creation of the Mizzou voting bloc somewhat makes up for joining the SEC and failing to reach a bowl game. Somewhat.
Ghost Adventures' formula is simple: Tatted-up host Zak Bagans and his buds blow into a supposedly haunted place, set up a bunch of cameras, chat up the locals and try to find ghosts. It's must-see TV for dude-bros with a weakness for the paranormal and a cable package that includes the Travel Channel. And sooner or later, it was bound to find KC's Union Station.
We ran across the recently broadcast Union Station episode (also viewable on YouTube) and watched it so that you wouldn't have to. Spoiler alert: The only spirits are behind the bar at Pierpont's.
No, the chills in this episode are pretty earthbound. The part, for instance, when a security guard named Marcus tells Bagans (who is, surprisingly, not a hobbit - more like Guy Fieri trying out for the Scooby gang) that he once saw a woman's legs in high heels, and Bagans asks if they were nice legs. Icky. (Marcus says he tried to talk to her, but she disappeared - because obviously she was a ghost. "Ain't nobody can evaporate," he tells Bagans.)
