Episode 166-Peedah Look, George Lucas did everything wrong with Phantom Menace. Thems just the facts folks.

Can a rental Home Depot van be driven without overalls appearing on your body? Which came first, the dent or the depleted health meter? Is it better to hear Buffet or inflict Buffet upon passers-by? Answers.… Read more →
Episode 161-What’s that coming down from the sprinklers? The stuff that keeps you up at night. The source of the heartburn.

Episode 160 Booty N Pizza. What more can be said? What more could be desired out of life? Never have eleven letters said so much.
