Scandal rocked the chess world the week we recorded this so Jon couldn’t stop Glen from talking about it. Anyway, it’s Taylor Ham not pork roll. Taylor invented that shit and dude deserves some credit. There’s a legit fascinating legal battle over what to call this shit. Glen’s dad makes a pork roll egg and cheese sandwich called the Egg McTickle (pictured above) that Glen thinks should be called the Egg TickMuffin. Glen really seems […]
This week, college students think Glen is their dad, so we talk about microwaving turkey. You can put more metal in a microwave than you would think. Giraffes use subsonic infrasound and someone that leads to microwaves. Microwaving for One is the saddest book. The Empire State Building would cook King Kong. Nothing bad can happen to you and you’re indestructible.
Circus peanuts taste like the bottom of a sneaker. Circus peanuts are good and you should give them a try. Yeezys taste like waffle fries. I want to plant a flag… in your butt. The Ringling Brothers invented the circus peanuts, and that’s why they got top billing over P.T. Barnum. We want Dax Shepherd and Rob Delaney to recreate this photo from the circus peanut wikipedia page. Glen’s baby loves little chompies. Go […]
Carnal means “flesh”. It’s another live episode, and like all great live episodes, THERE WERE AUDIO ISSUES, but it’s a fun episode, so just go with it. Turns out Glen and Jon get argumentative when there’s an audience. Sister Agnes isn’t a nun anymore. You can’t juggle in the same town forever, so you gotta take that show on the road. Glen’s catholic elementary school has a carnival every year and he won’t shut up […]
Vincent Price is spooky. We are very sorry to his surviving family for this episode. He covered the Monster Mash and coined the pejorative term “Humes” for humans when he talks to his monster friends, of which he clearly had many. Despite being a spooky boy, Vincent Price seemed like a great guy in real life. Also House on Haunted Hill really is a fun spooky movie. Will Jon and Glen write a feature spec script […]
Two Lil’ Buddies for you this week as Glen is traveling a bunch this month so we finally ran out of backlogged episodes. State flags: Maryland and South Carolina are real, real into their state flags. Some people in New Jersey might be into the state flag, but it’s trash so they shouldn’t be. Pennsylvania’s flag is only slightly less shitty. Michigan’s flag is sponsored by Ford. Chairy: Pee-wee Herman’s chair friend, Chairy is a […]
The wheel would be nothing without inclined planes. (This was cut from the episode but was worth stating publicly). Justin Passino joins us this week. If you melt a candy bar in a diaper it lookies like dookie. This is a game at baby showers. We ain’t talkin’ baby showers. Baths before showers, never glowers. Showers before baths, angry maths. Roman emperors flushed their dookie down a hole. A shower is water falling above you […]
Crab fluff isn’t a marshmallow-based disgusting sandwich or is it? We recorded this live at the Baltimore Podcast Festival Jon was determined to turn Baltimore against us Okay but like if it were a sandwich, it would be marshmallow fluff, blue crab that just fertilized some eggs, and Old Bay Seasoning on Martin’s Potato Bread that was invented on a boat in 1979 We may have been lied to that “crab fluff” is even a thing […]
The baseballs in baseball are much baser balls than soft balls. Funky Buttlovin Shout out to greatest softball player ever Jenny Finch (Jon’s a big fan) The 2000 Olympics were held on the Moon. Pitching is the star of the baseball. You can’t throw a softball 88mph because it would go back to 1955. Glen refuses to “yes and” a fake moon landing. Ken Burns’ Baseball is the perfect insomniac viewing. Don Quixote hates softball. Still […]
Sommeday Moon Knight Day Jim Tews Day Oden’s Day Thor’s Day Mr. Freeze Day Mr. Saturday Night These are the days of the week. Glen’s daughter wanted to know what Sunday was called Sunday so we explain the origins of the names of the week. The French love little princes. Gilgamesh deserves a day.
