Scott Parks, afternoon radio talk show on the “Dana and Parks” program on KMBZ-980 AM, opened the show today by telling a story about how he had just inhaled Lysol before going on the air.
Parks relayed details about how he felt he was going to get a cold today, so he drank orange juice, pills and an inhaler.
It was reminiscent of Felix Unger in the “Odd Couple” played by Jack Lemmon, who was a chronic hypochondriac and germophobe.
As Parks related, he was cleaning his keyboard with Lysol (as Unger might have in his day). Then, while thinking he was using the inhaler for his cold, Parks somehow confused it with the Lysol and sprayed that into his mouth before going on the air.
Parks and Dana Wright then spent the first segment of the show discussing the issue. Wright could not stop laughing as well as producer Rod Babcock. Newswoman Kara Marxer suggested someone call the Poison Hotline, but no one did.
Parks whined about symptoms, but for some reason they all felt it was wise to wait and see if he died to determine a course of action.
