|Ted Nugent's Electrified Loins

"Well, Mrs Nugent, who happens to be my campaign manager and, I would like to think, my overall quality-of-life manager - while I was sleeping many years ago, Mrs Nugent actually implanted an electronic dog-training collar on my scrotum." Nugent says, laughing.- Listen to the full podcast for more gems like this one.
