Squeaky Boy: Episode 33

Time for weird, unimportant news. You know on the news when they have that one story that’s not serious… the ‘human interest’ story… the fluff piece. Well that’s all we do. The stories today are: A bathroom’s plumbing is clogged with money, Velcro wants you to stop calling it Velcro, a squeaky boy and more weird eBay items.

Several bathrooms’ “plumbing” have been found clogged with 500 euro bills that have been cut-up into tiny pieces. Why? I don’t’ know. Then Velcro wants us to stop using the word Velcro as a verb, example: to Velcro something. They’re worried about us using the word Velcro this way, like we did with Kleenex and band aide. If we do this too much then they could lose their brand name. They made a goofy music video to promote the idea and we watch it. Very catchy.

Finally, we watch the video of a boy who’s swallowed the whistle piece from a pet’s squeaky toy. Is it funny… or is it sad? The boy end up ok. Does that help? Then we continue a story from a past episode of the Robot Pizza Van: More unusual items being sold on eBay. They’re food items that are shaped oddly. For example: a Cheeto that is shaped like a bald eagle. How much would you pay for such an item? I can get you a good deal.

Weird Creatures: Episode 32

Western_Black_Widow_(Latrodectus_hesperus)

Here’s the news that doesn’t matter. It’s not important or relevant. Today a man eats a black widow at the Halloween job fair. Then scientist have made a spider web as strong as steel. Finally, we’re seeing more brain-like blobs around. I wonder why.

A man attends a job fair at the local Halloween haunt. To impress and maybe land himself a job, he eats the poisonous black widow spider that he has brought along for the job interview. Very professional. Don’t worry. He has learned from his mistakes and carries black widow anti-venom in case he gets bitten… again.

Scientists have encouraged a spider to spin web that is as strong as steel. Imagine a group of scientists encouraging the cute little spider. “You can do it!” and “We believe in you little spiddey!”

Brain-like blobs are generally found in certain areas. We’ve been finding them lately in unexpected places. I hate to find brain-like blobs when I’m not expecting it. Brain-like? They only look like brains. Each football sized blob is a colony of tiny zoids. What do they want? What does anybody want?

Air Guitar Champion: Episode 31

episode-art

Listen to us talk as we watch some of the Air Guitar World Championship. We also look at a study that says intelligent people swear. Dang!

We watch this year’s 22nd Annual Air Guitar World Championship. That means they’ve done this 21 times already. Find out what it takes to win the title. This year it was held in Finland. Iceland is green and Greenland has ice. Finland has…

A study done at the University of Rochester shows that intelligent people swear more. It also shows other habits that seem to correlate. Correlation does not mean causation… or does it!

Steamroller Crushes Unpublished Work: Episode 30

https://i2.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!
