Wacky radio D.J. Beau Duran prank called the widow of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Darryl Kile and asked if she had a date to Thursday night's game, the Arizona Republic reported. The station, KUPD in Tempe, Ariz., has subsequently apologized and lists Duran as suspended on its Web site.

This actually makes me feel kinda good. Ya see, I bought Beau Duran's aborted fetus on E-Bay. It currently serves as a stylish toilet paper dispenser. I think it might be time for a demotion.

A radio DJ being an asshole with the humor of a 6 year old? Well I'll be!

Darryl: Hey God. Some dude is messing with my wife. Can I go back down as a ghost and mess with him? God: Go for it, dude! Make sure you get some of that silly string to spray all over his house! Darryl: Thanks God!

If I am a local listener I am boycotting KUPD and his advertisers until Duran is fired.

I can't believe this does not get the publicity the Opie & Anthony episode did. This was much worse.

This bonehead should never be allowed to work on the airwaves again, not even one of those kids walkie-talkies.
