As indicated with our title this week, the show has both a mention of rapper Ghostface Killah and contains a bit of filler. Or ‘fillah’ for the sake of a rhyme. Dennis, who had been partyin’ hard with family for Easter got a little tipsy, and as a result is somewhat quieter than usual on the program. Without his nuggets of knowledge and opinion a void is left in the hour that must be filled. Luckily we do so. Not as smoothly, I must admit, as in the past. Here’s how it breaks down this week.
Get ready for another integrated Bowel Movement. After our discussion on EPISODE 200 – FROM BACK TO FRONT, regarding the various techniques of wiping one’s arse, I came across a product that could unify us all in this matter. It’s called the Comfort Wipe. It’s a plastic wand with a gripper on the end that holds your wad of toilet paper. You’ll hear the commercial on the show explain the many advantages to using this $20 device. Throw in our classic Bowel Movement theme and it’s a trip down memory lane. If you’ve never heard these brief podcasts, just search our site for “The Bowel Movement” to find these past gems complements of Dennis.
Then it’s onto the Calendar where we celebrate Bat Appreciation Week, New Releases where we forget Margaret Thatcher’s name, call on the ErrorFM chat room for help and then the results to last week’s ‘We Ask You Poll’ regarding Michael Bay’s changing of the Ninja Turtles origin story.
Uwe Boll, the German movie director that many consider the worst in the world is being sued by a producer from one of his latest films. I present a Chase’s Challenge to everyone not so much to see if they can guess what he’s being sued for but more so just to hear a rapid-fire list of Uwe Boll jokes.
Charlie loses his mind on the next story. It’s the subject of Get The Fuck Outta Here, our segment where Joe Pesci does the honors of telling some person, place or thing to do just that. These stories are absurd. After hearing them you literally recite the famous Pesci line involuntarily. The school system in New York is retracting a moronic list of banned words from tests that they pulled out of their asses. Backlash from parents seemed to be brutal and swift. And with good reason. They wanted to remove words like birthday, dinosaurs, Halloween, junk food and more from all standardized tests. They sent the list of fifty words to the various publishers of these tests. Tune in and hear other words and phrases they wanted removed in an ongoing attempt to pussify our nation’s youth further than they already have been.
Did you know that Encyclopedia Britannica is still in business? Did you know up until 2010 they were still making physical books? Well now you do. You shoulda looked it up. They announced however, that they are ceasing their print editions in favor of digital interactive content through their website and apps. Apparently the free Wikipedia has caught up to them. Although you’ll still have to pay to access a lot of Britannica’s content, at least you know what you’re reading is true and not written by some vindictive contributor that Wikipedia just hasn’t caught yet. This begins our first chunk of fillah in which we review an old commercial for the encyclopedias in an attempt to learn how much they cost.
HOLLYWOOD SQUARES is returning to MTV in the form of, HIP HOP SQUARES. It’ll be a new take on the game show featuring musicians, athletes and MTV personalities in the tic-tac-toe boxes instead of Whoopi Goldberg, Gilbert Gottfried and the like. Among those chosen to appear, Nick Cannon… of course… rappers, Biz Markie, Fat Joe and Ghostface Killah — all of which I’m too white to pronounce correctly. And Pittsburgh Steelers’ linebacker, Lemarr Woodley to name a few.
This cues our second chunk of fillah where we think back to the last time we watched MTV. For me, it was THE REAL WORLD: NEW ORLEANS. Immediately, Dennis remembers the guy on that season that sang that stupid song, “Come And Be My Baby Tonight”. To YouTube we go for that and a rather uninteresting clip of a fight between him and some other chick in the house.
In Breaking News we have a story involving a horrid injury during a couple’s spat that’ll send a chill down any man’s spine. Followed by more filler from the chat room about another couple’s spat resulting in possible cannibalism. I make the comment that I sometimes worry we may run out of things to talk about on the show, but when I come across stories like these and with a little assistance from the chat room, clearly I have nothing to worry about.
