Early in the show, Fred Norris explained his absence from last Wednesday’s show, saying his brother-in-law, Andrew, had suffered a heart attack while riding his bike.

“Usually when you’re on a bike, you get hit by a car or something like that,” Fred said. “What are the odds?”

Fred added that while Andrew was just 45 (“And he looked 35.”), his family’s history of heart disease caught up with him. “That’s one of life’s cruel jokes,” he concluded.
