  1. Tubbs McGee says:

    Just listened to this eps…

    Now where’s my Chris and Matt ringtones! Come on, don’t fail me now Internets!

  2. Kyrie says:

    Those of us who were doing data entry while listening to this episode, thank you yet again for making our lab sound like it is full of crazy people.


  3. Josh says:

    @Roger … Oh man, 5% antimony. I can relate. I too missed most of antimony class — all those embarrassing diagrams!

    Great ep, guys!

  4. Ya know, it’s totally illegal to even try to sell your Oscar unless you sign a waiver that says the Academy has the right to buy it back first — for $1.

    It’s nice to hear this and his excitement at going to the Superbowl, knowing that his halftime show coverage was hilarious.

  6. mistletoe says:

    Billy fucking Eichner. Discovered him through How Was Your Week? and have been a fan ever since. Billy on the Street is one of the funniest things ever produced.

  7. Mitch H says:

    Chris, who was laughing at you in the intro!?

  8. jamison says:

    Joe Pesci has retired to play country music

  9. Patty Marvel says:

    So of course, I had to Google Mo’Nique and found this: “Why wasn’t Mo’Nique at the [2011] Oscars?” AND that her show may not be on the air anymore. So…I found crap all that’s recent.

  10. Jake says:

    The music in the background during the intro while Chris is talking reminds me of background music in Totoro. Now I have to have a Miyazakifest in my house
