Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?



  1. David says:

    I wish I listened to this podcast regularly, but I’ll explain the significance of “Field of Lost Shoes”. Forget the politics. It is an underdog story. It is about a group of kids that were called upon to fight that no one had faith in. Units that fight together in a battle have the honor to fix bayonets during parade. VMI is one of three schools in the entire world (the only one in the United States) allowed to fix bayonets in parade due to their efforts in the Battle of New Market. West Point doesn’t have that honor. Annapolis doesn’t have that honor. USAFA doesn’t have that honor. Only VMI. That is why this story is told. That is why this movie was made.

  2. A.M. says:

    i thought he sounded like he was about to cry the whole time

  3. Ian Buck says:

    That whole “Michael Jackson puppets freaking is technically masterbatory” part reminded me of a character from the book Rx: A Tale of Electronegativity by Robert Brockway. Good read, and its sense of humor should align with that of listeners of Nerdist.

  4. Bryan says:

    Yes, Des Moines, IA needs the Twin Towers to be rebuilt there. They’d totally fit in with the current skyline.

  5. Captain Mcgloo says:

    Great, another old professional wrestler,

  6. Whizzurd says:

    If a wizard sneezed, he would accidentally cast a patronus.
    If a stage magician sneezed, a bunch of flowers would protrude from his/her nose.

  7. Wildride says:

    That’s weird: You didn’t list his credit as former world champion wrestler in the summary. 😉
