A word of warning… you may be weirded and/or creeped out a couple of times during this week’s show. For the weird part, Charlie inexplicably has a British accent during the entire episode. He may have had a stroke, or a long conversation with Madonna. We can’t be sure. It is however a little weird. The creepiness, like pretty much all of our shows, comes from not just the stories we talk about but the hosts as well. Today you’ll hear Jabari’s rape voice and mine as well. Creepy… ’nuff said. But the real creep factor comes in at the end of the show during Breaking News. More on that in a moment.
We take a short trip down memory lane thanks to a listener E-Mail asking us how we came up with our show’s name. We cover this at every convention panel we’ve done so far, but I’m not sure if it was ever talked about on the show. It probably was, we just don’t remember. They all start to blend together after seventy or so episodes. One of our hosts was responsible for coming up with the “questionable” name… get it? Because our name is a question? Yeah, listen in to find out who. You’ll also hear what the original title of our podcast was going to be. And, while rummaging through some hard drives thanks to a new hard drive dock I just bought — which you’ll also hear about on today’s show — I even ran across the original theme music we were going to use. The format and premise of that program never took off and was ultimately mutated into what you see and hear before you today. Did we make the right choice? Let us know!
And after their absence, followed by a week off, then a bump due to being short on time last week, it is FINALLY time to check in with Jabari and Dennis on our new Fantasy Football Update segment. We also discuss the whole referee debacle and along with that we play you a clip from NBC’s SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL in which the crowd lets the temporary refs know just how they felt about a “bullshit” call one of them made against the Ravens coach. It’ll likely be the only time you’ll hear such words chanted over and over again on network television.
We also tell you about a long awaited sequel to the Farrelly brothers’ DUMB AND DUMBER film. They twatted that the script is nearing completion and the film will be called DUMB AND DUMBER TO. Not a typo there.
And on the small screen, a twice canceled show on NBC and ABC is being revived. Not on TV though but on stage. SCRUBS will be turned into a musical according to the show’s creator, Bill Lawrence. We chat about the good and bad of SCRUBS’ run and more.
Gamers want bigger titties! That’s according to feedback Gamasutra got regarding the female characters in the new DEAD OR ALIVE 5. Apparently, going off direction from their corporate overlords, they intended to tone down the sexiness of those female fighters. But after fans played the demo, they let Gamasutra know that the ladies weren’t cuttin’ it. So, the programmers piled on the chest pixels and here we are with DOA 5 back to it’s big-busted self.
Do you know what someone is doing when they’re butt-chugging? If not, you’ll find out on this episode. And devastating news from the golden arches. It turns out, in a flat-out act of pure greed, they’re gonna make you wait until December before you can sink your teeth into the McRib sandwich. Personally, I don’t eat ‘meat products’ shaped like what they’re ‘trying’ to taste like, so this news doesn’t really affect me, or any of the Who Asked You? Crew. But we felt like you should know in case you’re a fan of it.
And now, that creepy bit of news… in South Carolina a woman was shocked to discover something lurking in her attic. I don’t want to spoil it here. I will say, it was watching her, made itself at home up there and required large cups to hold its waste. That bit alone prompts a segue into Jenkem Watch! I think I’ve said too much already. Go listen to the show, then check your attic just to be on the safe side.

“Leroy’s Hot Chocolate,” “Beef Stew,” “Heez-Its,” these are all past episode titles having to do with food. Someday we’ll have at least 1 show named for every type of food and perhaps every food group. Today’s selection… cereal. It seems the RTE or ready-to-eat cereal industry is nearing the bottom of the box with all the flake crumbs and cinnamon seasoning. Kellogg, one of the leaders in cold cereal is seeing a steep drop in sales. Today, we spoon up our thoughts on why cereal hasn’t been as recession proof as so many thought it would be. And for about the 9th time in Who Asked You? history we run down the list of cereals we could eat on a ‘cereal’ basis and those we can’t stand for reasons ranging from tasting like styrofoam to bodily injury to the roof of one’s mouth.
Before the frosted-flake-frivolity begins we have a few brief announcements including news of a new online show Dave Chappelle is working on and Rebecca Black’s horrid music video being offered now as a rental on YouTube. Plus, for weeks now a listener and friend of the show has been trying to send an E-Mail comment. Oddly it wouldn’t go through. He contacted the Who Asked You? tech support and even they were puzzled. Eventually he was forced to send it via a Facebook message. Why would this one listener E-Mail not make it to our website’s inbox? Tune in and it’ll all become clear. Turns out, he really just wanted to hear me read it in my silky Emmy-quality voice.
As you’ll hear me warn before reading it, the cereal story takes up a good portion of the show. As a result when we reach the bottom of the bowl on that one there’s really only time for one more headline. In the Show Links you’ll find an image of a sign that ‘appears’ to be posted on the entrance to a McDonald’s restaurant. This picture has been around the Twitter block thousands of times already and still continues to forward on. Read it and you’ll quickly figure out why it’s so popular and why McDonald’s public relations department isn’t laughing.
On rare occasion we find ourselves filling the last few minutes of the show with bullshit. Granted, that could be said about the entire show, but sometimes there’s not quite enough time to get into another segment and our steam on the previous bit has run out. In the broadcast biz it’s called “stretching.” You’ve probably heard the term. Luckily we have Arnold to help us do it. Sometimes this can be the most entertaining part of our program. Will it be this time? You’ll have to wait and see. Or you could do the podcast equivalent of ravaging the cereal box right after opening it to get the toy by skipping to the last 5-minutes of the show… your choice.

It’d be interesting to see what happens to a McRib sandwich if left out for several weeks. We know what happens to the burgers and fries… absolutely nothing. Just ask Sally Davies. She’s an artist from New York who bought a Happy Meal and let it sit out for 180 days to document its decomp demise (pictures in the Show Links below). Strangely though, nothing happened. No mold, no fungus, no discoloration… just an acrylic sheen across the food making it rock hard. McDonald’s could easily get into the fake plastic food business for model homes don’t you think? They wouldn’t even have to make the stuff. Just use unsold burgers and fries. Word has it they last for 12 plus years!
Also on the McDonald’s news front, couples in Hong Kong are going crazy over getting hitched in the restaurant. For some unexplainable reason there’s been an increase in demand for this service to the point that McDonald’s has actually started offering it for a flat fee. Now you can not only get fat at McDonald’s, you can also ruin your life there too!
After we fill up on all that non-decomposable news, it’s time to catch up with Michael Bay. The possible title of TRANSFORMERS-3 was potentially leaked online by accident. It seems Amazon.com offered up some books for pre-order, written by the official movie novel author, that contained the rumored title. The name as of this posting hasn’t been confirmed by Michael Bay, but Amazon has removed all traces of the books from their site, soooo you kinda have to wonder.
Also on today’s program, “It’s The Law” returns! The state of choice this go-round? Alaska. It seems our 49th state is very concerned with moose safety. There are several state laws involved the antlered-animal as well as some at the city level. Remember that moose in the opening credits for NORTHERN EXPOSURE? Yeeaah, he was breaking like 10 laws.
And speaking of breaking stuff, the news continues to shatter around us. This week rapper T.I. helped talk down a suicidal man, a teenager parallel parks… in the DMV lobby and we talk about the world’s fastest mobility scooter.

We start things off with a rousing round of Who Fact You?. There’s never a shortage of miscellaneous non-sensical factoids you can store in your brain and share with your friends. And it’s all curteousy of our show. If you’ve ever wondered how many taste buds a catfish has or what public school system banned hypnotism, this is the segment for you!
Those aren’t the only facts we have for you this week. We felt it necessary to bring you up-to-date on the cold hard facts surrounding Steven Seagal’s legal troubles. As many of you are quite aware, we have an unusual infatuation with 80′s movie stars and the films they did. We grew up watching guys like Seagal, so when there’s trouble abound we like to monitor the situation. It would be totally awesome if Seagal reenacted the bar scene from “Out For Justice” in the courtroom. He could start with the bitch who’s filed a lawsuit against him. Claiming the actor expected her to become his personal sex toy. Then he could move onto the judge, maybe clock him with the gavel a few times until he dismisses the charges. But then again, Steven Seagal is a little sleazy looking. He may very well be guilty of the accusations. It’s tough to say. What do you think? Vote on this week’s We Ask You Online Poll and tell us what you believe.
And it’s the third time in a row that we’re forced to find out what Michael Bay is up to. My god… at this rate we may have to turn it into its own show. This week’s update is pretty short though. He takes a moment to pass the “Revenge of the Fallen-sucking” blame off onto the writers and then lets us all in on the not at all exciting news of who the villain will be in the third feature. It should be Megan Fox, but it’s not.
Then we’ll tell you where they found Bruce. That’s all I can really say. Listen to the show and you’ll learn who Bruce is and where he’s been for the past 35 years.
A large chunk of chicks that are of child bearing age in this country don’t seem to mind if they bear a child. That’s according to a new study recently released. It seems about 1 in every 4 women polled wouldn’t care one way or another if they got preggers. This is cause for some alarm, as well as an endless supply of Maury episodes.
And lastly on episode 123 we take a moment to bash McDonald’s and its BP-like incompetence when it comes to the promotional junk they shove in kids faces. It seems collectible cups for the new Shrek movie aren’t up to American standards, which these days is becoming a gray area. If you drink from these cups designed for drinking from, you may develop cancer, or floppy bones. We know, your child just recovered from floppy bones after wearing Miley Cyrus jewelry a couple of months ago. She’s as incompetent as the clown. Shame on all of them!
I know one thing, cancer causer or not, if McDonald’s releases some collector’s cups for Under Siege 3, we’ll be first in line!
