ML gets stabbed – TWICE – to start the day, then gets needled by Marc and Shawn while Patrick counts the days til he gets his jaw broken and Joe is glad to be monitoring the situation from a remote location.

THE STRAIGHT DOPE: The show starts off with an appreciation for Adam Sandler’s “The Waterboy,” which ML says is just as good in French.
