Editor’s Note: At the time of recording episode 245 in the studio, we were unaware of the transition to the living force of Peter Mayhew, the actor who brought the most beloved walking carpet in the history of movies to life in the form of Chewbacca.
We would be remiss in not mentioning this event even though we don’t speak of it in the following podcast. It is after all May the 4th. If you need the importance of this day explained to you, Chewbacca’s passing means nothing to you anyway.
For all others: See you again Chewie, no one is ever really gone.
It’s State of the Union time again boys and girls. The annual government clown car of ridiculousness on parade for all the world to see. I’ve been watching since the Ford administration and I can tell you, the names have changed but the game, and the clowns, remain the same.
Also tonight! A new segment: Are you serious? debuts. And the Shot Gunning the News segment is straight fire. You cannot miss it.
You thought you heard too much about the Russians? ha! Brace yourselves my friends. You ain’t heard nothing yet. Coverage of the Wall will make coverage of the Russians seem like a 30 second sound bite.
The wailing and gnashing of teeth over the Wall will go on for as long as the shut down for obvious reasons. The question then; is the end in sight? The answer; not even close.
Yeah you read that right. Shero, as in women heroes. Folks we need em, the sheros. A crisis has emerged. A civil war has broken out and it’s not Trumpians vs Liberals. It’s not Avengers vs Justice League. It’s the… It’s… I can’t believe I’m typing this.
It’s the Lesbians (#sheros) vs the Transgenders (no hashtag, indicating their lameness) over the right to womanhood. As in who are real women and who aren’t. The first shot was fired by the #sheros at the pride parade in London, England. They wanted the Trans folks out of the parade and more importantly out of the movement for equality. This isn’t getting much play as you might imagine.
All joking aside this may have serious implications in the issue over the rights of Transgenders in this country. Stay tuned. More on this in the future. Until then revel in the glory that is the greatest hashtag since #feelthebern
As for me and my house we are team #shero.
We talked about other stuff too. So click and listen.
Man let me tell you, disrespect your nerds at your own peril. We have been in the grip of some serious technical difficulties that may have been avoided had we shown our staff nerds some love. Well we’ve repented of our sins and are up and running again. Up and running with a new segment no less.
We’ll also retrace some of the issues we’ve missed in our two week technical hiatus. So sit back, click the link, and bask in the warmness of our newly repaired radio waves.
The Republican circus finally has their monkey. The question is can they keep his feces tossing under control till November. God this is going to be fun.
Also, were you aware synchronized swimmers at the Lympics suffer head trauma akin to NFL and NHL athletes? Me neither. We do a deep dive on that tonight. (See what I did there) Click the link you crazy monkeys and get an up close and personal of your new overlord.
