Steamroller Crushes Unpublished Work: Episode 30

https://i0.wp.com/www.edinphoto.org.uk/0_edin_t/0_edinburgh_transport_steam_roller_1960s.jpg

A famous author’s unpublished works have been crushed by a steamroller, and the library asks that you stop paying late book fines with Chuck E Cheese tokens. At first these two stories seem unrelated and later they will seem even less related.

We start with the news about Chuck E Cheese. We learn not only that a Massachusetts library is requesting that late book fees NOT be paid with Chuck E Cheese tokens, but the Chuck E Cheese Animatronic Band is breaking up! Two devastating blows to Mr. Cheese.

Then its off to a friend of the late Terry Pratchett, who is fulfilling the late author’s wishes. His wish? To have his hard-drive crushed by a steamroller after his death. This would prevent anyone from publishing any of his unpublished or unfinished work. And the steamroller in this story has a name! Someone named it! Oh, and Google home makes a short cameo appearance as the talking household internet device.

The WhopperCoin: Episode 29

Burger King has its own 'whoppercoin' cryptocurrency in Russia

What is a Whoppercoin and how do I get one? Where has Rygar been? Do people really register their hands as lethal weapons? Ok, so you’ve got a lot of questions. Well, gather around and I’ll tell you a tale. A story of the time when Offroad, Borg and Rygar talked into microphones one summer day.

To answer those questions – WhopperCoin is a cryptocurrency created by Burger King, Rygar was at the McGregor vs. Mayweather weigh-in, and no… as far as I can tell no one is required or able to register their hands as a lethal weapon. I guess there’s no point in listening to this episode now that you know everything. See you next week!

Monkey Waiters: Episode 28

A bar employs monkeys as waiters, and a couple (of people) buy an exclusive street in San Francisco. If you’re tired of caring about the news then join the Robot Pizza Van in our battle against important news.

There is a bar in Japan that has a couple of macaque monkeys who serve drinks to customers. The monkeys learned it by watching the owner. Now they’re teaching it to the next generation of monkey waiters and waitresses.

A street in San Francisco forgets to pay their taxes so the city sells the street to a couple. The city kept sending warnings to the wrong address, so you see, it’s all just a horrible misunderstanding. What would you do with a street of your own in a major metropolitan area?

Tortoise On The Run: Episode 27

IMG_1909.JPG

A giant tortoise escaped from a zoo in Japan. There’s a bunch of funny things in this story. First. it’s a giant tortoise so the escape must have taken some time, it was probably not a fast getaway. Second, the turtle doesn’t get very far. Third, how the turtle was found. This third point is not that funny but I was counting my fingers and I still have two more left. Fourth point, the turtle has a cute name. Fifth point of humor is… that … turtles are funny.

Ok, the other story is that Pantone, the system for matching colors used in specifying printing inks, not Pantene the hair care product… Pantone has teamed up with the Prince estate to create a custom shade of purple as a tribute to prince. It’s called “Love Symbol #2”. I will not make a joke about the other numbered love symbols.

And finally, is a vertebrit an animal distinguished by the possession of a spinal column, or is it something that you might spread your vegemite upon?
