Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A flight from Boston to Los Angeles had to be diverted to Nebraska because of a disturbance one California man caused. Doug Adams, 26, masturbated during the flight and then attempted to exit the plane while it was mid-air. When the plane landed in Omaha, police detained him and admitted him into a local hospital.

“So the guy was sparring with the champ, they tell him to stop, he puts it back in his pants and tries to open the door,” Callahan said. “I guess that pretty well establishes his mental state. He wasn’t just giving it a grab.”

Said Dennis: “What they should do is let the passengers have at him before they take him off the plane.”

— A 37-year-old man in Wisconsin suffers from the rare persistent genital arousal syndrome. This means that husband and father of two Dale Decker can have up to 100 orgasms in a single day.

The hosts said they believe the man is a complete phony.

“But how do you prove this is a hoax?” asked Minihane. “You can prove a woman has three boobs.”

Replied Dennis: “You can take him into a room, put a doctor there, videotape him, strip him naked and watch it happen.”

Asked Callahan: “Can’t they fix the poor guy? Can’t they do a little procedure?”

— Judge George O’Toole allowed a two-month delay in the trial for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. However, O’Toole will not allow the trial to move from Boston.

O’Toole said it would be difficult to find people anywhere in the country who did not know about the case, and a fair trial can happen in Massachusetts.

“You’d be in search of the biggest dopes, the biggest dummies, in the world,” Callahan said.

Said Dennis: “This is going to be compelling. This is going to be probably more interesting and just as well covered as the Whitey Bulger thing.”

Wednesday’s Headlines recap: Three-breasted woman a fraud; HBO announces new ‘True Detective’ actors; President Obama salutes with coffee cup; tiger eats New Delhi man

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A Florida woman who said she had three breasts has been untruthful, according to a TMZ report. Jasmine Tridevil, who claimed she had surgery to have a third breast added to her body, lied about it.

One of the Tridevil’€™s bags was stolen off a conveyor belt at Tampa International Airport. Police caught the thieves and retrieved the bag. Inside the black nylon bag was a three-breast prosthesis.

Asked Callahan: “So you can buy a three-breast prosthesis?”

Replied Dennis: “You can buy anything.”

“Sure, I imagine there’€™s probably a small market for it, but a loyal market,” Minihane said. “There’€™s a fetish for everything. Three boobs is a weird fetish, but some guys liked to get urinated on.”

— HBO confirmed actors Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in the second season of “True Detective.” Vaughn and Farrell will replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, who stared in the show’€™s first season.

Said Minihane: “Colin Farrell I think is going to be good. I’€™m worried about Vince Vaughn.”

Replied Callahan: “I think [Vaughn] will kind of have a dry sense of humor and be that same witty guy that he is in ‘Wedding Crashers.’ ”

“I don’€™t want a witty guy,” said Dennis. “[Vaughn] seems like a lightweight by comparison to these three guys.”

— President Barack Obama has come under criticism for saluting Marines with a coffee cup in his hand. After he exited the presidential helicopter, Obama carried a cup of coffee with him and made a casual salute.

“How about this, put the coffee cup down, go in the White House and get another cup of coffee,” Dennis said.

This comes after President George W. Bush once saluted military members with a dog in his hand.

Said Minihane: “The Bush stuff doesn’t work for me anymore. Bush was a fool, so is Obama.”€

— A man in New Delhi fell into a tiger cage at a zoo and was eaten by one of the tigers in the enclosure. The 22-year-old man, only known as Masqood, pleaded in front of the white tiger, but was killed after 10 minutes.

“Do you think he ate him legs and arms first, so the guy could watch?” asked a sarcastic Callahan.

Tuesday’s Three for All recap: Reporter in Alaska quits on-air to run marijuana business; Rob Bironas allegedly threatened other drivers before fatal crash; Texas HS football player gives memorable interview

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

— A television reporter in Alaska admitted to secretly running a marijuana business and that she would be leaving to run the business full-time and push for the legalization of the drug in the state. During an on-air report, Charlo Greene said, “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice, but [expletive] it, I quit.”

Benz recounted an incident early last year when he quit a radio job on-air after being told shortly before he went live that he could no longer debate the gun-control issue, a topic that had dominated his program the previous two days.

“They tried to censor what I was going to talk about on the air, so I quit,” Benz said, noting that there were other issues as well.

Asked what he said to his listeners during his farewell, Benz recalled: “I just said, ‘This is my last show. This hasn’t gone the way I wanted it to. This show has kind of gotten away from me and my design, and that’s it. I’m done.’ ”

Benz eventually returned to the program.

— More details have emerged about the events leading up to the death of former Titans kicker Rob Bironas, who died when he crashed his SUV near his home in Nashville.

Other drivers called 911 to complain about Bironas’ driving leading up to the crash. The 36-year-old, who was cut by the Titans in March after nine highly productive seasons, allegedly threatened to kill one driver and proceeded to chase the college student’s vehicle.

“I don’t know what was going on with Rob Bironas, but two nights in a row, road rage, trying to run people off the road,” Merloni said.

— A high school football player in Texas gave an incredibly motivational speech during an interview after his team’s comeback victory. Apollos Hester, a wide receiver for East View High School in Georgetown, praised his team’s guts, attitude and belief in each other during his passionate diatribe.

“Would you buy a blender from him?” Fauria said. “This guy’s got a future.”

“Sometimes you wish you could invest in humans,” Merloni said, adding: “He’s got the right personality. He’s got the right attitude. Do you think he’s going to suck at life? I don’t.”

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A Florida woman said she spent $20,000 for a third breast so that she will be unattractive to men.

A 21-year-old massage therapist who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil said she had the procedure because, “I don’t want to date anymore.”

“She should have saved the money,” Dennis said.

Added Callahan, “Aren’t there other ways to make yourself unattractive to men? Get your hair cut, get a tattoo, don’t brush your teeth?” Callahan also suggested she could talk about her fantasy football team, a round of golf or a dream she had.

Further reports indicate the story might be a hoax. The woman appears to be using a fake name and is pushing a self-produced reality show. The only photos of her are ones she provided.

“I am totally calling B.S.,” Callahan said. “Do you think you can find a doctor to do that?”

— Kira Kazantsev, who last week was crowned Miss America, was expelled from her sorority in college last year for abusive hazing of pledges, according to multiple reports.

Kazantsev was head of recruitment for Alpha Phi at Hofstra University when she was ousted for bullying after pledges allegedly were physically and emotionally abused. She was barred from attending any sorority events.

Said Callahan: “I’d let her paddle me.”

— A television reporter in Alaska admitted to secretly running a marijuana business and that she would be leaving to run the business full-time and push for the legalization of the drug in the state. During an on-air report, Charlo Greene said, “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice, but [expletive] it, I quit.”

“How are you going to [sign off] when your day comes?” Minihane asked Dennis.

Interjected Callahan: “In chains.”

— Omar Gonzalez, the Army veteran who scaled a fence and ran into the White House, had 800 rounds of ammunition in his car in addition to two hatchets and a machete. His family said he is suffering from post-traumatic stress.

Minihane, as he did Monday, said the White House does not seem like it would be a great place to live.

“It seems like a prison,” Minihane said. “I know it’s big, but it seems like a prison.”
