Rob Explains Why He Calls Dummies in the News ‘Rob’s People’
So during my show (weekdays 3-7p), I like to highlight the dummies in the news and I call them Rob’s People. I’m starting to get questions as to why I call them Rob’s People, so I thought I’d enlighten you. Basically it’s because I’m pretty much like these dummies (without the criminal element) because if there’s a way to screw something up or just look like an idiot, it will probably happen to me. I’ll explain with few examples:
When I was 7 years old, we were at Wal-Mart and I disappeared from my mom, climbed up on a shelf where they had treadmills set-up (and for some reason plugged in,) got on a treadmill that was set to go WAY too fast for a 7-year-old, and held on for dear life, while the belt gave me the worst burn ever on my side… a pretty dumb move.
More recently, I went to visit my family (friends that are family) and their dog peed on the carpet, so I tell the youngest to grab the Clorox spray and spray the spot… not even thinking that it would bleach the carpet (until it did.)
Then there was THIS famous moment when I proved why I’m the leader of Rob’s People… I accidentally hijacked some random guy in a town car while I was in San Francisco for a wedding. In my defense, Uber was new, and I was in party mode, so I didn’t quite grasp the idea behind ride-sharing (mainly that you had to use the app to get a ride.) - I also tried to steal a really really old vase... Below is the full story:
There’s only one rule to Rob’s People… NO ONE CAN DIE. There was once a story that cracked us up when a guy was trying to install his satellite and shot a hole in the roof to push the wire through… except he shot his wife in the leg in the process; it was all funny until we read the last line… and she later died; after that day, there’s only one rule.. we don’t laugh at death…that’s just sad.
Now you know WHY Rob’s people.
