People with Down's syndrome aren't stronger than regular people. They just don't pull any punches. Every pull or push is at 100%.

I thought "Blaster" died in the Thunderdome? Two men enter, (one with mismatched socks) one man leaves.

Love to see the kid challenge every asshole that has taunted, or made fun of him, into the ring and kick the shit out of them, or mock them as cowards should they decline.

Unfair (dis)advantage, you can just land haymakers into his enormous forehead and he'll keep coming at you.

Ron holds Fez's hand and props him up everyday on the radio, but Fez can't concieve of a kid with a disadvantage like this being helped to take a chance.

I'm starting to think that Ronnie is running a bit on all of us......get the audience to get mad and annoyed at Fez and right before the point where we can't take it anymore.......the greatest heel turn of all time

Ron trying to reason with these ne'er-do-wells is sad.  This saga is going to take an Of Mice and Men arc.

 That is one of the 3 ways to get Fez to talk on air these days: 1. News clips where some gay guy is a victim; 2. Fez's physical or emotional problems; or 3. Let Fez stake out a position based on emotion rather than reason and keep forcing him further and further out on the limb. 

 

Other than that it is either the Ron & Hicks show or auteur interviews.  Still worth the listen though.

 @ElectricDave I've often wondered if Ron wasn't just pulling off the greatest social experiments of all time.  Sort of like the Milgram experiment.
