For us fellas a reach around can be pretty darn nice. The keyword there being ‘can’. There are circumstances I’m sure we could all dream up where such a favor may not be in our best interest. Charlie too enjoys the reach around, but not one he has to pay for. We learn that on this show while running through Tuesday’s DVD releases. There are a couple of them that could be considered a reach around by Hollywood. But not the good kind. This one comes from a cold, rough, dry hand whose grip is too tight and retard-strength tugs uncomfortably hard over and over again. And worse of all, Hollywood wants you to pay for this miserable masturbatory assistance.
Since our 5th Anniversary show the episodes have been pretty mild. I began to wonder if we’d lost our spunk after five long years. I can tell you now that we have not! In probably our most lively show since then we’re all over a number of stories. We warm up on one that relates to last week’s poll that we didn’t get to in time. That story is one of Eric Hartsburg who got Mitt Romney’s campaign logo tattooed on his face for a mere $15,000. Talk about a cold chappy reach around.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is getting the good kind of reach around. He’s been asked to reprise his role as Conan the Barbarian in a sequel/continuation/not third film but rather replacement to second film but taking place after second film. THE LEGEND OF CONAN will pick up where the 1982 film left off… a seasoned, older Conan perched on a throne. Best of all, using Arnold’s real life aging, they won’t need any make up! Arnold says he’s thrilled to be back. Get it? Because he’ll… be back?
What are your top-ten movie villains of all time? Ript Apparel — the 24-hour limited edition shirt printer — has theirs. And boy do we have ours… more specifically, Dennis. But we all throw in making a master list of sorts. Ript’s rundown includes the likes of Hannibal Lecter (we agree) and the Wicked Witch from THE WIZARD OF OZ (we disagree). Our list includes Clarence Boddicker of ROBOCOP and Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnn!!!!!! Plus others. Tune-in to hear ‘em.
There’s a list from Forbes Magazine of some actors in Tinseltown that are most certainly getting the good kind of reach around. They’re incredibly over paid. I present a Chase’s Challenge to the guys to see if they can name the number-one highest over paid A-Lister. Spoiler… they don’t, but they do get several others on the list while guessing.
AMC’s WALKING DEAD has certainly grown a fan base. Some of the fans may take the comic-turned-show a little too seriously through. Now I know what you’re thinking, Chase, you and Jabari have torn JJ Abrams a new one numerous times over his STAR TREK. But without spoiling too much of this story here, I’ll just say Jabari and I likely wouldn’t do to Abrams what one WALKING DEAD fan did to his girlfriend because she disagreed with him over the show’s plot validity. Don’t miss this Breaking News.
And lastly, we need your help choosing our 2012 CLIP OF THE YEAR. Head over to the special page we’ve set up for it and listen to the three nominees, then vote for your favorite. The winner will be deemed our CLIP OF THE YEAR and will be replayed on our December 23rd year-in-review show. Just think of it as your reach around on us… no dry or chapped hands please.

What defines a douche bag? How does one know he is, in fact, a douche? These are questions we work to solve at the start of today’s show. Spawned from a comment in the ErrorFM chat room, Charlie runs down a checklist of what constitutes someone as the feminine hygiene device’s namesake.
Because of Mother’s Day, both Mike and Dennis were absent… spending time with their mommies… getting their nails and hair done. So holding down the Who Asked You? HQ blanket fort is myself, Jabari, Charlie and the man-of-few-words, Chad. Concerns of filling the hour while down a man are quickly put to rest as we’re barely chipping away at new DVDs halfway through the show.
Other topics of interest this week are those we didn’t get to last week… which was pretty much the entire rundown. Starting things off is a roughly translated hate mail aimed at Jabari. Charlie opens his box of Cheez-Its while I implore you all to take our PodTrac survey to help us get advertising. Then we roll through the new releases for the week and we’re off and running with the meat of the show. The first slice is all about BILL AND TED. You may remember the 2 bonehead teenagers who traveled to the past in a time machine phone booth with George Carlin? Boy, that logline just screeches 80s doesn’t it? Anyway, it’s being reported â€” and even tweeted by the stars themselves â€” that a script for a 3rd trip through time is in the works. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter would reprise their roles as the bodacious duo. Little is known about the plot. Although both actors have said it would be a continuation of the franchise, not a reboot. Whew! That’s nice to hear. Besides, they’re both in their 40s. Only the CW can pass off middle-aged actors as teenagers. So it’d have to be a ‘where are they now’ spin.
Of course, age doesn’t stop every actor from taking a role. For example, there’s a packaged deal making its way around the studios in Hollywood that would reboot the TERMINATOR franchise, and Arnold WOULD return as our favorite cyborg! According to the deal made when the rights were auctioned to the highest bidder, the current owners, Pacificor, have to make another movie or else they lose the rights. And guess who those rights will default to if they don’t?
We’re finally hearing from Nintendo that a new console will succeed the Wii sometime next year. The question I posed to the fellas is what features they’d like to see in it. The consensus was… fun games. The thing can have all the bells and whistles imaginable. It can create eye-catching high def graphics at super fast frame rates, it can have the most ergonomic controller ever held… hell, it can do you laundry… but if the games aren’t worth a shit, then the console isn’t either. That’s what we think. What about you? Look to the right and tell us what features you’d like to see in the next Nintendo. Or you can send us an E-Mail. One thing is certain, with revenues falling over 50% and so many more gaming choices these days, Nintendo is certainly going to have to ‘up their game’ to stay competitive.
And the show ends with the hardest laughter ever recorded on our program. These eppies don’t come around too often. It’s a story about the house used in the HOME ALONE movies. It’s up for sale. From there, we do our usual Who Asked You? improvisation regarding how the real HOME ALONE story would’ve gone. Think what they did with THE DARK KNIGHT. It got very gritty, dark and realistic compared to the previous Batman films. So too does out interpretation of Kevin McCallister’s booby-trap antics. In our scenario the little squirt falls victim to some hellacious beatings and torture by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. Even his mother is raped when she bursts through the front door. All caught on tape with Kevin’s Talkboy. It’s official, we’ve never laughed so hard on the show before. This one goes in the record book. You’ll have to stay tuned to the end for all the fun!

Every so often we have an episode with a messed up rhythm. The stories of the day spark odd conversation, there are long pauses where we take in what was just heard or said and a Dennis speech rambles on just a few seconds too long… yeah, all of that is in this week’s show. The ErrorFM chat room even queries as to when the dick jokes will start. Luckily they don’t have to wait long.
One listener E-Mail spawns the aforementioned odd conversation about products made from hemp. Are they comfortable? Do they irritate one’s skin? Of course, the idea of a hemp made condom comes up… from someone in the chat room! Not us this time! And this show’s first penis-pun is ‘inserted’.
Our flow continues to stumble along in uneven bursts as we talk about THE GOVERNATOR, a new project from recently departed Cal-ee-fornia head-honcho, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s on a whirlwind merchandising stunt that’ll place him in a comic book, cartoon series, some video games and a potential movie. And guess what his character is… a governor who just left office!!! What a stretch. This could be Arnold’s toughest acting gig yet. As much as we love the big guy, this just seems pathetic somehow. You’re better than this Arnold. Come on! A cartoon show with a weak character/story line? Video games, comics? Granted, he’s getting older. His days of jumping out of helicopters and punching people’s faces through the backs of their skulls are quickly coming to an end, so a cartoon would be one way for him to continue his legacy without breaking a hip. But we can’t shake the feeling that he could do sooooo much better than this deal.
Over at NBC they’re catchin’ hell from comic book fans as they make bad wardrobe decisions regarding our beloved Amazonian. Gone are the days of Ms. Carter’s hot pants. The Peacock replaced them with something they thought would be equally tantalizing, but instead came off as trashy. For future reference… please don’t put Wonder Woman in blue vinyl pants and boots. She doesn’t need to look anymore like a porn star than she already does. Not that looking like that is a bad thing, especially for Adrianne Palicki… mmmmm. Oh sorry, but there needs to be a line. Luckily, NBC took all the bashing-blogs into consideration and changed her uniform in time for the pilot episode.
And it’s official! BLACK DYNAMITE is getting an animated series. It is going to be on CARTOON NETWORK’s ADULT SWIM and the actors from the film will voice their respective characters. So far so good… not so fast says Dennis. A bit surprising. I thought for sure he’d be the most excited out of all of us. Listen in to hear his thoughts on the whole thing.
The country’s school systems are failing, budgets are getting slashed, children ARE being left behind. We here at Who Asked You? try and pick up some of that slack with a little segment we call “Who Fact You?”. It’s 10 random bits of information you can use to better your life, or start a conversation with at a party. The off pacing of the show continues here as well. One fact garners no conversation, while another spirals out of control and off topic.
The program ends, not a moment too soon, with news of the world’s first official 3D porno! Surprisingly it’s not made in America… Damn it! I was hoping the NAILIN’ PALIN sequel would be 3D… instead the film, a remake of one made in 1991, comes from Asia! It’s in Cantonese and has Chinese residents flocking to Hong Kong to see the uncut version of the movie. I know what you’re thinking… Hollywood isn’t the only country doing remakes now. No no, just kidding. What you’re probably thinking is what we tackle on this story, do we really need to see porn in 3D? The pros and cons of this, as well as a literal “cock blocker” for baby boys and so much more straight ahead on Episode 159: Baby Puncher.
