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.
Corduroy is bumpy cloth that’s ribbed for your pleasure. It is basically fabric fjords. Jon super doesn’t know what corduroy is even a little bit. How does one corduroy? You roll loose fabric through a pasta machine, obviously. There’s no practical reason for corduroy. People wearing corduroy probably don’t smell *great*
IMPORTANT: We’re doing a live episode TOMORROW 9/14 at the Baltimore Podcast Festival! Come to The Crown at 6:30 for a FREE SHOW. We’re on the lineup with some other great shows and we go on at 7:45 so be cool and come on out. Glen loses it again trying to guess what A&W stands for. Taco Bell will replace meat with black beans in anything they make if you ask them to. The pizza […]
It’s pronounced (struh-tee-jo). James R. Frontbutt invented Stratego. Glen and Jon like smashin’ pieces together. One is the loneliest number and Stratego piece. 9’s are basically pawns from chess (Jon brought up chess first this time!) Players think more about where to put pieces than is probably necessary. Nobody knows what the S piece stands for or does. (It stands for “sneaky boy”) L’ATTACK!
The frog is saying, “Why’d you sting me?” and the scorpion is saying, “That’s my whole deal.” Neither of these fools has seen The Crying Game so this one’s buck wild. The Crying Game could have been a book, but it’s definitely also a song. Jon and Glen accidentally wrote a pretty solid amish teen murder comedy. The Crying Game sounds really intense but we’ve still never seen it. We won’t watch it and you can’t […]
Mini-sode or “Little Buddy” this week. Score doesn’t matter. (It never matters.) Parrots can be sad jealous lonely birds that live basically forever. Justin Passino would make a better pet than a parrot would. Maybe Glen’s neighbors have a bird? Ecuador is wall-to-wall parrots. Comedian Frank Caliendo is 7 parrots in a trench coat, but so are a lot of things.
You get to Sesame Street by following your heart. Bert and Ernie gonna regulate. Appearing on Sesame Street is a career goal of Glen’s. Getting kidney stones pulverized is a sometimes food. Telly is barely keeping it together. Sesame Street did a 9/11 episode. Oscar the Grouch isn’t a Time Lord but he’s got like two things in common with Time Lords.
