Space Weed: Episode 48

A pound of marijuana is sent into space and then returns to earth. At first a PR stunt but now a business idea. Sometimes it’s easier to list off a bunch of questions. What happens when you send marijuana into space? What happens when a person smokes it? Will people buy space weed? What if aliens steal your space-stash?

Definitely Not A Christmas Special: Episode 43

Nobody learns any lessons and the bad guy wins at the end. Amidst the protests of co-hosts Rygar, Borg, and some supernatural surprise guests, Offroad makes sure that this is not a Very Special Christmas Episode.

Just a regular old episode. Yep. Pen spinning is a thing that we’ve all done. You haven’t? Pick up that pen there and hold it like you’re going to write something. Now flip it around your hand without dropping it. Ok, now… pen spinning is a thing that we have all done, but some people take it to another level. There is an entire pen spinning competitive world with international championships.

Then we look at some ‘funny news of the past’ including a scientist who invented bullet proof wheat (make a joke about lasagna here, maybe something about lasagna replacing body armor?) and edible ink on hot dogs (hot dog-vertising).

And although we try not to, in the end… I guess we all learn a little bit about ourselves. But you should listen anyway.

This week a court tells us that Facebook friends are not necessarily our real friends. I was already insecure. Then Prince’s sister says that purple wasn’t his favorite color. Guess what color it was? No, guess again. Ok… tell you what. Just listen to the show and I’ll tell you then.

We also chit chat about pool, ping pong and recreational tables in general. Nobody has room for a ping pong table. You make room. It’s a lifestyle. The ping pong table makes room for you!

New, Episode 36: Accidental Tweet

A marathon takes a wrong turn, and a phone accidentally dictates an unusual tweet. Robot Pizza Van is your source for all the news that is funny or weird.

During a marathon the runners who were in the lead took a wrong turn. In the meantime some other guy wins the race. Then Rygar tells us about the time he ran in a marathon and was hit in the back of the head with a tortilla. That’s why I won’t run in any footrace.

A woman is dictating a tweet about a news article she had just read. In the middle of the tweet a friend came to her house so she paused the tweet. Little did she know that the twitter machine had not paused but in fact had continued to dictate everything that she said to her friend and broadcast that out. Can you imagine the kind of private things that might have been revealed? Imagine no more. We have the actual tweet and it will be read live, on the air. This is nothing like Al Capone’s vault. I am sure that there are words inside this tweet.

We look at useless websites and spirulina really is a super food. Super cool!

Love is not a real ingredient in granola, and George Foreman challenges Steven Seagal to a fight. Join Offroad, Rygar and Borg as we consider these stories and more.

Can you list “love” as an ingredient on a food products label? A small bakery thinks so but the FDA disagrees. It’s all up to you to decide.

George Foreman challenges Steven Seagal to a 10 round, no holds barred, fight. Included in this episode is a list of holds that are traditionally barred.

Fishnado: Episode 34

RPV_fish

\

We search high and low to bring you the news stories that won’t keep you awake at night. It was hard to find, but these are all of the stories from the entire internet this week, all the stories that don’t involve politics, religion or anything else that generally excite people: Man sneaks snakes in his socks, fish are falling from the sky, and a monkey that took a picture of himself. That’s all of them

A man is caught at the Canadian border smuggling albino Western Hog-nose snakes in his socks. Robot Pizza Van has covered other stories of snake smuggling and assumes the reptile market to be lucrative.

In a Mexican town fish have reportedly rained down in the streets during an otherwise normal rainstorm. Scientist say that the cause is a tornado that has sucked up a bunch of fish and rained them down miles away.

Finally, a monkey took a selfie and now Peta has sued the human photographer on behalf of the monkey. Can an animal hold a copyright? Don’t answer, I can’t hear you right now.

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.

6f01d7d2ad98d1e896d97cf9f08f1d7d--farm-tools-gas-pumps

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.
