    This Intro…possibly the best thing ever!

  2. Rebecca says:

    I listened to the “I fucked your mom” section of the podcast and I thought to myself that the “I hope she cums first” response was fantastic and hoped that I could use it someday. Lo and behold, I was playing WoW tonight and someone in my instance group was being a jerk and used the insult so I used the “perfect” comeback. Unfortunately, he didn’t take the bait and then I realized it wouldn’t work on morons with little to no real life social skills. Oh well, I’ll try again someday…


    Every time I hear the Aunt Slappy story, it makes me angry. To be harassed and then physically attacked for no reason is mind boggling to me. It sounds more surreal than funny to me.

  3. Maris says:

    Lots of good stuff in this pod. That Chris was auntie slaped story was goddamn hilarious. Must of been kind of crapy when it happend, but boy was it funny. And that whole economy & up arrows thing was gold. 

    • Maria says:

      Goddamn it! My namn is MARIA not MARIS. Note to self, don’t post comments 2 in the morning. You don’t know what the fuck you’re doing and should go to sleep. 

  4. RobotGhoul says:

    At the end of this you guys get so excited about getting a bottle in a trash can with a toss from across the room, but you can’t enjoy or care about sports? I think there’s a little jock hidden deep inside you all. 

  5. Jennifer says:

    OMG Chris… I just <3 U.  I really enjoyed the convo about the economy and the up arrows…  I am soooo in agreement…  Oh!  And I LOVE the way you pronounce OR-e-gone.  TOTALLY awesome podcast!  Thanks!  ;D

  6. J says:

    Water bottle in a trash can? This hurts me.

  7. Patty Marvel says:

    “Dick bonding?” Oh, the image that creates…

  8. cagelirious says:

    My mom passed away a few years ago and im at peace with it. So if anyone out of the blue says I fucked your mom I respond “how can you fuck ashes”. It pretty much breaks them. First they never consider my mom might be dead and second they have no concept that anyone would ever respond with those words in that situation.
