(01:01):
a different type of magic.

Speaker 3 (01:03):
Yeah.

Yazaki is definitely nothing close to Lucas.

Speaker 4 (01:07):
So yeah, it doesn't involve fucking blasters. No, That's just
all I hear all day is like pew.

Speaker 5 (01:22):
Hello the Internet, and welcome to this week trend edition of.

Speaker 4 (01:27):
STEE.

Speaker 3 (01:30):
It's a production of Iyheart Radio.

Speaker 4 (01:32):
This is the episode where we tell you what is trending,
what was trending over the weekend, what's going on with us.
My name is Jackie O'Brien, that is mister Miles.

Speaker 2 (01:46):
Don't have a way to really start that one off dynamically,
but I will say, well again, I know the people
who wanted to go on Discord, hit me up again.
I like to only I don't like to put out
permanent links because you never know where that shit gets
out and then to weirdo people try and you know,
fucking hop in the discord hit me up again. I
will send out discord invites again. Just DMCD at Miles

(02:09):
of Gray, score, Twitter, Instagram, and I will be sure
to get you that because I saw a few people
who were like, oh shit, I didn't use it in time.
Remind me please, got a lot on my plate, but
I will ship fuck.

Speaker 1 (02:20):
These guys are in the server. Fucked me. All right.

Speaker 4 (02:23):
Uh, well, we're gonna talk about some of the things
that we're having over the weekend. How Trump's few first
few days as a convicted felon went on for him,
uh and for his campaign and for those of us
who received text messages from him.

Speaker 2 (02:42):
Yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, oh personally right, yeah, perject.

Speaker 4 (02:45):
You gotta help me, man, guy, help me. Have me
on a DZ mail from Trump. Colon is the formatting
is very weird. We'll talk about that.

Speaker 1 (02:56):
To you, Colon.

Speaker 2 (02:58):
Yes, I will give money Trump great, but first we
like to get.

Speaker 3 (03:01):
To know each other a little bit better.

Speaker 4 (03:03):
If you guys just get to know us by telling
you stuff that we think is underrated, overrated? Yeah, yeah, yeah, Miles,
do you want to kick us off with some peace
things under underrated?

Speaker 1 (03:14):
Under I'll say this.

Speaker 2 (03:16):
I'm still battling a bit of a I don't think
sinus thing infection. I don't know it's it's not bad,
but I feel like I need to go to the doctor.
But it's bad enough that it's inconveniencing me. But anyway,
that plus a baby going through a massive sleep regression,
has made me realize how fine the margins are for
you know, necessary sleep to get through a day.

Speaker 1 (03:37):
I think most of us.

Speaker 2 (03:38):
Know that adults need between seven and nine hours of
sleep per night. Yeah, but many of us, I think,
also kind of go by whether or not we're just
able to drag our asses through the day as a.

Speaker 1 (03:49):
Metric whether or not we had enough sleep, So like, yeah,
I scraped by I think that was enough sleep.

Speaker 2 (03:55):
Well, yes, I'm also realizing that while I used to
be able to do around seven around seven hours and
be able to function, I really actually need closer to eight.
I'm realizing personally that's kind of my sweet spot. Like
I started shifting my night a little bit to see
how much better I felt when I was able to
sleep continuously.

Speaker 1 (04:11):
Obviously screaming baby aside.

Speaker 2 (04:15):
Yeah, and that seems like the floor for me actually
now that I realize, and I'm trying to really respect
that because it does it makes me a better fucking parent, partner,
podcaster the Three Pie's you.

Speaker 1 (04:27):
Know what I mean.

Speaker 2 (04:27):
He cute and that's what it's all about. But yeah,
I think I'm closer to eight. And then as I
was reading about this shit, they're like stress also, like,
is another factor that's kept me up or not sleeping
or waking up in the middle of night. But there's
a study that came out recently that also found that
financial stress is one of the biggest indicators for people
not getting enough rest. And that makes sense because inequality

(04:51):
affects people in every imaginable dimension. But in this analysis,
they said that they found that the most underslept people
live in low income rural areas is primarily in the South,
like West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama regularly get the least amount
of sleep. And it's not because they don't have like
a fucking temper pedic pillow or some shit, right, it's

(05:12):
just the financial stress. So do you think in these
like these poverty reports they sort of overlap with the
amount of sleep people get too.

Speaker 1 (05:18):
Boulder, Colorado the most well.

Speaker 2 (05:21):
Rested city in the United States apparently, Wow yeah eight,
But yeah, I mean we're living in the society that
we live in the United States, Like financial stress will
be almost feel like ambient.

Speaker 4 (05:36):
It's like, yeah, the water quality for a fish, you know, Yeah,
you can't turn it off.

Speaker 1 (05:41):
It's the air you breathe.

Speaker 2 (05:42):
Literally in a lot of cases, depending on how if
the EPA looks the other way, Yeah, it's it's but
it's wild just how much that like really kind of
overlaps in such a direct way.

Speaker 4 (05:53):
Yeah, so my underrated I was just noticing how effective
it is when someone accuses their opposite in an argument
or a conflict of.

Speaker 3 (06:05):
Doing the bad thing they're already doing.

Speaker 4 (06:08):
This is like we've talked about this a lot, like
with regards to Republicans usually yes, yes, that they will
do fascism while screaming about how the world is fascist
and taking away their rights. So I got to view
it from an impartial perspective. My wife currently super obsessed
with tennis and pre challengers.

Speaker 1 (06:28):
That's pre challengers, right.

Speaker 4 (06:31):
Challengers and like are just part of the same kind
of gestalt. She's ben become super obsessed with tennis over
the past like year and a half. She's listening to
a tennis book by a former pro. It's called like
Winning Ugly is about like how to become good, like

(06:51):
just using the mental game. It's by this guy, Brad Gilbert,
who rose to I think number four in the world
in nineteen ninety but is like like people would watch
him be like, but he's not good, right, like that
guy kind of with his mind. Yeah, well he's just like, yeah,
he really paid attention to the mental side. And so

(07:12):
he was describing this match where he got owned by
Ivonne Lendall.

Speaker 1 (07:17):
You remember him, yes.

Speaker 4 (07:18):
And it was just so basically he was like Lindel
was like going through a rut or like needed rest,
and so he like slowed the game down. Was just
like like he'd pretend he had like an eyelash coming
out of his eye, you know, like just do anything
he could to slow shit down, like the Dark Tie Untie,

(07:39):
the dark arts of like fucking with your opponent. But
then the thing that put it over the top is
he kept doing this as this guy's about to serve
to him. And then as the guy's about to serve,
he like spoke to the line. Judge was like, could
you tell him to stop delaying like Lendall did about
like is going he's taking too long with his serve.

(08:02):
I think it's to like mess me up.

Speaker 3 (08:04):
And it just like totally fucked his opponent up.

Speaker 4 (08:07):
And it just felt I don't know, like seeing that
tactic from like an impartial perspective where it doesn't affect
me at all, but I was just like, God damn,
this is so effective. It's so like I don't know
what to do with it. And I feel like we don't,
like we don't have a shorthand for it. And I

(08:30):
think that's part of the like the way that we
had a shorthand for like things Trump making things worse
and worse, and like it like the normalization of it
being people were like, Oh, it's the Overton window, and
then people kind of suddenly knew what that meant for
a while. I feel like we need that for this

(08:50):
because otherwise it's just like he's.

Speaker 3 (08:53):
Doing he's accusing that of doing the thing.

Speaker 4 (08:56):
He's doing, which just sounds too much like I know
you are, but what am I you know?

Speaker 1 (09:03):
Isn't that just like kind of isn't that a form
of like projection though?

Speaker 4 (09:07):
So, Yeah, the psychological term is projection, and I think
that has a connotation that's being done inadvertently that it's
like because that and I think it started from the
fact that narcissism is currently like a personality disorder that
is like a cheat code for our modern world, and
narcissists just can't help but project like whatever they're worried about,

(09:30):
they will accuse the other side of. But I think
it under like calling it projection, I think underplays how
effective it is, right that it's like a really difficult
to deal with tactic that we're going to see from
these people more and more like it, like Gish gallup

(09:51):
is something Andrew t frequent guess of the show talked about,
is this tactic from debating where you embed like this
crazy assumption in your argument that is going to like
take too long and too many words for your opponent
to deal with and so they have to just like
skip over it even though it's like wild.

Speaker 3 (10:10):
But I don't know that it's it's that, but.

Speaker 4 (10:14):
It's also there's like a perpendicularity to like the gish
gallop thing being the thing that you are doing that
is unfair to that person. So I don't know, I
just feel like we need a phrase. Not sure it
would even help, but like yeah, it would just help
us like deal with what we're about to what we've

(10:35):
been dealing with.

Speaker 1 (10:36):
But you know, yeah it's jank kettle pot dynamics.

Speaker 4 (10:41):
But yeah, yeah, I mean I think ye is maybe
a good like told kettle.

Speaker 2 (10:50):
Engaging in kettle kettle pot lendalism. This is KPL to
the t. This is the textbook definition of KPL. But
I think, yeah that I think the reason why that's
affect if not just like in political discourse and in
like a tennis match, is like that whole thing is
about getting your opponent to completely surrender their ability to
control themselves, because by putting subjecting them to all this

(11:11):
bullshit and then accusing it to them, that's such a
shorthand to frying someone's outrage circuits.

Speaker 1 (11:16):
To be like, are you fucking serious? You fucking me? Yeah,
I'm fucking wasting time. You fuck that.

Speaker 2 (11:23):
That's where you know, you can learn something from the
great action star Steven Segal Russian hero.

Speaker 1 (11:30):
Just really just keep your shit together and.

Speaker 3 (11:33):
The momentum against them.

Speaker 2 (11:35):
But again, when you have like, yeah, media punditry class
that's just more than willing to be like.

Speaker 1 (11:41):
What the fuck are they talking about? Then yeah, you
win every time.

Speaker 4 (11:45):
Yeah yeah, because they go for it every time, and
so you get to yeah, the unjust I mean.

Speaker 2 (11:51):
He was just convicted, and now just treat them like
your friend who's a full of shit liar or not,
you're I don't know if you're friends of those people
with someone you know, we're like, yeah, all right, just
shut up, dude, shut.

Speaker 4 (12:03):
Up narcissistic liars. So that's the other I just surround
myself with people who are just constantly.

Speaker 2 (12:12):
Projecting yeah, yeah, tell me about it, Hey, why'd you
say that?

Speaker 3 (12:17):
And then waggle your eyebrows what's something you think is overrated?

Speaker 1 (12:24):
Overrated?

Speaker 2 (12:25):
This kind of goes into the trump ship that's happening
right now with the conviction overrated is the repels I.

Speaker 4 (12:31):
Go first then, because mine has absolutely nothing to do
with that, and that is the story. You can flow
right into it. Yeah, go ahead, flow right in. Uh
so mine is uh all right. So a couple questions
for you, uh huh. When you were sick like nauseous
growing up, did you have a certain thing that you
would put next to your bed, like in case you

(12:53):
couldn't make it to the toilet.

Speaker 2 (12:55):
Yeah, it would be like a it would be like
a trash can or like a stock pot with a.

Speaker 1 (13:00):
Stockpag in it.

Speaker 4 (13:01):
Yeah, so stock We were stockpot always, yeah, yeah, yeah.
And then we also ate popcorn out of a colander
that which okay, you did that too, all right. And
then this was a weird like we had a communal
sock drawer for the whole family.

Speaker 2 (13:17):
Is that a communal sower?

Speaker 1 (13:21):
Don't you have like three isn't it like three three
of you kids?

Speaker 4 (13:25):
Yeah, there were three kids, there were, and we just
kept them all in the same thing and you would
go and find the one that was the best fit,
and it was just like an assumption that like it's
not gonna be perfect.

Speaker 2 (13:37):
Like you're looking for discount DVDs in the checkout line
of fries or some ship, you're like, oh, I guess
belly for two dollars.

Speaker 4 (13:44):
Yeah kind of yeah, But I just I think they're
like the crock pot thing, like that's kind of fucked.
Like I don't I don't like the idea that you
would like throw up in a stockpot.

Speaker 1 (13:55):
We didn't.

Speaker 3 (13:56):
We didn't grow up putting a bag in it, so
there was no separation.

Speaker 2 (14:00):
And so see that's where I think my mom was like,
do not puke into the pot itself, but we will
use that as the rigid structure to hold a garbage
bag or shopping.

Speaker 3 (14:09):
Bag, which like it's metal, it's gonna wash off.

Speaker 4 (14:11):
But like there is like a mentally, yeah that happens.

Speaker 1 (14:17):
You could boil the funk out of it and there
would be no germs.

Speaker 3 (14:19):
But I get that, but there's just like something weird.
So she was like, out on that.

Speaker 2 (14:24):
Is the universal sock drawer more born out of having
so many fucking socks to do that. It just like
was like we're not starts time with this just fucking
rondr sock drawer.

Speaker 4 (14:33):
Yeah, you guys deal with the sorting of the socks
because it's a fucking pin in the ass. And also
they're like kind of they can be hard difficult to
like tell apart, like Okay, this is.

Speaker 3 (14:44):
The dad sock and this is like the kids sock,
but like the like.

Speaker 2 (14:48):
White athletic cruise socks or something like that. Yeah, yeah, yeah,
I get that, But no, we.

Speaker 1 (14:53):
Didn't have that.

Speaker 4 (14:55):
Did you have any familial traditions that like, as you
became an adult you thought, like I'm reminded, there's this
one story where someone like slept over at a friend's
house and at night, like that friend's family like all
got into lazy boys in a single room and went
to sleep like on recliners. It was like the weirdest

(15:15):
possible version of you know, but yeah, exactly, But I
think it's interesting, like there's these little things that were like, yeah,
I know we always did that that as you become
an adult, people are like what the fuck?

Speaker 1 (15:31):
Yeah, nah, did I have any shit like that?

Speaker 3 (15:33):
No?

Speaker 2 (15:34):
I mean I had things that like when I had
like American roommates and shit, like they would be like
they were like weird Asian immigrant habits that I had
that they were like, what the fuck are you doing?
Like the biggest thing I've talked about this on the
show before is like not refrigerating shit that I would
be like stewing overnight like if I made miso soup
or some other thing like that, shit didn't go in

(15:55):
the refrigerator, right.

Speaker 3 (15:56):
All sat out overnight, Like I know that from my
care and in laws.

Speaker 1 (16:00):
Yeah, yeah, exactly what you gonna die? And I'm like
the fuck out of my face, bro, and then boil
it again. I remember that what I had.

Speaker 2 (16:09):
This one roommate he's my voice, though he would he
was so shook by the fact that I was not
refrigerating shit. He was honestly like saying, She's like all right, bro,
but like when you have to go to the hospital, man,
like I'll take you, but like just I just want
you to know, like like I warned you. Then I
was like, I've been doing this every day of my
fucking license before we met.

Speaker 1 (16:30):
Yeah, and we here, we're still here, this whole constant
still is out here not refrigerating shit.

Speaker 4 (16:36):
So you think a first version of that where you
like realize you've been fucking up. I think that a
lot of American people probably had was the electric tea
kettle like I didn't.

Speaker 1 (16:49):
Oh boiling, like stove boiling versus an electric kettle.

Speaker 4 (16:51):
Yeah, stove boiling an electric The electric kettle is just
objectively so much.

Speaker 2 (16:58):
Better than oh hell yeah, especially if you got that
you depressed the topics. Oh yes, and then that's fucking
how you got like a gallon in there.

Speaker 4 (17:07):
Yeah yeah, that was my score with one. What is something, Miles,
do you think is overrated?

Speaker 2 (17:13):
The Republicans understanding of government slash the Dems thinking this
is it for Trump? This whole thing is so so much.
Something that is interesting about the Maga movement is that
it does operate truly like any other fandom.

Speaker 3 (17:27):
It's a fandom.

Speaker 2 (17:30):
It's truly a fandom because what it did was a
lot a lot of people who are disinterested in sports
or disinterested in politics to bring that same nonsensical, illogical
way of thinking into politics now and be like, oh, yeah,
I'm team Maga. I don't know anything, I don't know
how any of this shit works, but I just know
this is my team. So, you know, like any fandom,
you got to have the narrative we are the best,

(17:50):
we are number one, fuck anybody else. And then when
that veil is pierced, you have to go into fucking
full spin control to convince yourself that despite the overwhelming
evidence that is presented to you, you are still the
best and we still are winners. And I do this
a lot as a Laker fan, right, I talk about
this even on mad Boosti's where like, my pride tells
me we are the best, and when that reality isn't

(18:12):
being presented, I start telling myself that we can just
sign the best players next season, or best coach whatever,
just completely completely removed from the realities of things like contracts,
salary caps, whether or not it's even technically feed like
things like limitations that would make my fantasies literally impossible. So,
like with the GOP, they're freaking out because their boy

(18:35):
got touched by the legal system and now they have
to cope hard. And the coping this time comes in
the form of again just fantasy revenge shit that is
absolutely unable to happen aside from the very real threats
of dosing. And like the and all the other campaigns
that they say they're embarking on, but like specifically, right.

Speaker 4 (18:53):
So the real threat that he gets elected president, in
which case.

Speaker 2 (18:56):
Yeah, yeah, but I'm talking of like the things that
were people like, oh, New York want to do that
to Trump.

Speaker 1 (19:01):
We'll guess what. All the truckers are gonna boycott New York. Now,
no they're not.

Speaker 2 (19:07):
And even in the fucking weird AI images that you've
you've shown there, those trucks aren't even going to New York.
But anyway, go on, please with your fantasy or Marjorie
Taylor Green suggesting that we can strip the empire state
of all federal funding. Yeah no, no, no, no, no,
he's got that. What about all the fucking Republicans that

(19:30):
are in New York too, that are like, I kind
of that's my state or.

Speaker 1 (19:34):
No trash collection for you by that logic too. Uh.

Speaker 2 (19:38):
The man is facing a fucking Rico charge out in
fucking Georgia, but you're not out here talking about defunding
your own fucking state.

Speaker 1 (19:45):
So again, then I like it.

Speaker 3 (19:47):
Screaming they're gonna find him innocent and.

Speaker 2 (19:50):
Exactly screaming about it, I know makes us feel good,
but it doesn't make it true. The one shitty part
is even though speaker Mike Johnson and Trump himself hope
the Supreme Court can step in, and that.

Speaker 6 (20:00):
Sadly, technically is a possibility, the Supreme Court coming in.
And I mean, eventually you could technically appeal to the
Supreme Court, like up and up and up and up
and up, but that's gonna take such a long time.

Speaker 2 (20:13):
But who knows what happens, because I don't think this
appellate court. I don't think he's gonna succeed on his
appeal considering it was a jury trial. But anyway, all
that to say is like I think all parties engage
in this fantasy coping and it just it's just so
hard to watch sometimes. Like on the other side, dude,
the fucking fundraising texts I'm getting from Democrats.

Speaker 1 (20:33):
Are absolutely out of this world.

Speaker 2 (20:36):
Like I don't know if we're I thought the election
was like the fate of democracy or is it like
a fucking door buster sale, because like the way the
fucking texts are coming in, let me just read one.
This is the first one is to all Joe Biden supporters.
Please don't click away from this critical message from Gavin
News and blah blah blahlah talking about all this shit,
how we need to you like him? After that, I

(20:57):
get another one today only Trump found guilty. All donations
to boost Biden are four x match ten dollars equals
forty twenty five equals one hundred? Okay, what what are
you sure? Today? And today only then they go on
it's like guilty, we got him. Like it's stuff like

(21:17):
that where I'm like, this is unbelievable. It's not rooted
in reality. And again they're really really selling people on
this shit that like this is somehow really gonna get
the Trump campaign wobbling. It may, but there are also
these wacky headlines are like oh Trump faces triple poll
devastation blah blah blah blah blah, where people are like

(21:38):
it might make someone less likely.

Speaker 1 (21:40):
To vote for Trump if they're a Republican.

Speaker 2 (21:43):
But I just there's just all these like sort of
cope celebratory headlines in every direction that everyone's trying to
make it a win for themselves or whatever the fuck
that I just it's it's just disorienting, and again there's
real things happening, but.

Speaker 4 (21:59):
Yes, and people try to turn Joe Biden's like weird
smile into like, oh my gown he got owned Trump
and it's like, I feel like he just looked kind
of it was weird, creepy.

Speaker 3 (22:14):
It was very creepy for for real.

Speaker 1 (22:17):
I don't know.

Speaker 2 (22:17):
Yeah, you get out of context, put another question in
there and make that look really weird.

Speaker 3 (22:23):
All right, let's uh, let's take a quick break. We're
gonna come back.

Speaker 4 (22:26):
We're gonna talk about what Trump's been up to, uh
since being convicted of thirty four felonies.

Speaker 3 (22:32):
We'll be right back and we're back mm hmm.

Speaker 4 (22:45):
And he uh, Trump spent his first weekend as a
convicted felon meeting with his parole officer. Uh, you know,
he was, you know, taken into custody, met with his
Oh I'm sorry, I know. He just went out, had
had a wild one, was spiraling on social media, claiming

(23:09):
that he was being targeted for political persecution, basically turning
himself into a religious martyr, going to a UFC fight
and seemingly just having a blast joining TikTok. But yeah,
so this social media spiraling posted a prayer for himself.
Strengthen him, Lord, send legions of angels to protect him. Father, guarden,

(23:33):
guide his heart and mind, ease his cares and give
him good rest, give him your peace and wisdom, h
cause his enemies to stumble and fall into confusion and panic.
Give him energy and clarity. That's kind of weird to
be like, I, God, I really need like you to
be my adderall right now.

Speaker 2 (23:54):
It's wild when like you're in such a bad place
and like, you know, this guy's like basically a fucking
atheist that he's like, I could really use just whatever
the fuck you guys say to feel good. Can I
tap into that fucking what legions of angels? The fuck
is this? But he's like, yes, I need it, I
need everything I need. Just give me all your strength

(24:15):
so I may win. Yeah, he's he's he's he's doing fine.

Speaker 3 (24:22):
Yeah, Yeah, is a UFC fight.

Speaker 4 (24:24):
He's like, hey, that was a good walk on, just
like enjoying a UFC fight. Uh seems kind of unphased yea.
In so he seems unphased in the TikTok video. In
his messaging to his supporters, Uh he is a political prisoner.

Speaker 3 (24:42):
Uh literally used his conviction.

Speaker 4 (24:44):
To make a shitload of money, with fundraising emails proclaiming
him a quote political prisoner that went out just minutes
after the verdict was read out.

Speaker 1 (24:54):
Oh yeah, they had that shit ready to go.

Speaker 2 (24:56):
Could you imagine they fired off before the verdict was
even read They're like, he's fucking cooked.

Speaker 4 (25:01):
Yeah, but with your support at this moment in history,
we will win back the White House and make America
great again. But yeah, I even got some text messages
from Trump, and I know they were from Trump because
this is the text all caps from Trump.

Speaker 3 (25:17):
Colon. Hey, I have a question for you.

Speaker 4 (25:19):
Exclamation point new line. This is like kind of formatted
as a haiku. Uh, all caps asking you, colon, will
you vote for me again again? Answer colon? Answers in
all caps Colon. Then I'll link off to Trump Mega
dot VIP, which is cool. I'm glad to be a

(25:42):
vi P repliestop topped out. So that was a nice offer.
But hey, look, I know voted again. Who I voted
for first of all, between me and my god, as
I always say, I would have voted for Obama a
third time. And the fun thing for Trump is you

(26:04):
can vote for him a third time. Uh, probably a
fourth and fifth, you know.

Speaker 1 (26:08):
At least ceremonially.

Speaker 2 (26:10):
Yeah, yeah, wow, the Trump Trump asking you answer?

Speaker 1 (26:14):
What is it I do what.

Speaker 4 (26:17):
I wonder if this one was drafted by him, because
the formatting is so weird.

Speaker 2 (26:22):
Yeah, it's like someone learned what like a call to
action was or something, or it's like and then the
ask is this, and then their answer is this.

Speaker 1 (26:33):
I don't know what.

Speaker 2 (26:33):
Either way, this full fucking raised like almost fifty three
million dollars.

Speaker 4 (26:37):
Yeah, that's what his campaign is reporting that he raised
fifty two point eight million and twenty four hours after
his conviction.

Speaker 3 (26:43):
And then you know, well, well no NFTs, I know,
no NFTs yet.

Speaker 2 (26:50):
Oh yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, he didn't have time to
cook up the not guilty NFTs.

Speaker 1 (26:55):
Yeah, I got it.

Speaker 4 (26:56):
You can get a little piece of his summons uh
to court, like they'll cut it up into like tiny
little pieces. So yeah, I was expecting a bunch of
shitty merchandise to go along with the news. But you know,
no political prisoner, fanny packs or justice is dead in America.
Beer Couzzi's yet from them. Hillary Clinton did drop a

(27:17):
mug on our ass that I'm sure we're all just
in back order on it has the slogan. Turns out
she was right about everything and just even putting aside
how wildly smug. This is the mug twenty two dollars
is just so looks like absolute shit.

Speaker 2 (27:40):
Yeah, it's it's so cringey too, like the tea sipping
meme of it all.

Speaker 4 (27:46):
Yeah, clip art from nineteen ninety five of Hillary Clinton
sipping tea and then or it could.

Speaker 1 (27:53):
Be a bunch of dragon piss. We don't know what's
in the cup.

Speaker 2 (27:56):
That's truely fair. To be fair, it's not labeled, So
it's really up to you what you think. I was
right about everything. Let me sip my dragon piss and
be it. The interesting part is this, it's just like
it's so.

Speaker 1 (28:09):
Off on so many levels.

Speaker 2 (28:11):
Yeah, like aside from like Hillary, we get it, but
like we don't need to hear, but we don't need
to hear from you. We don't need to hear. Like
it's it's not interesting. I don't know, like is this
Maybe it's a Democratic fundraiser, but just like how off
base the tea sipping shit was like twenty fourteen, Like
the Kermit like especially the Kermit one, Like with the
Liptin that was like peak twenty fourteen. We're ten years

(28:35):
late in the meme game too. She got got our ass.

Speaker 1 (28:42):
Got our asses for the twenty two dollars.

Speaker 4 (28:44):
Fuck, that was my first thought when he got convicted,
is Hillary told us you guys.

Speaker 1 (28:49):
Yeah exactly what was she?

Speaker 3 (28:52):
Okay?

Speaker 4 (28:53):
Yeah, I guess the success he got convicted of broad
for cheating in the election.

Speaker 1 (28:58):
That lock him up. He's the guy that's bad.

Speaker 3 (29:01):
He's the one.

Speaker 2 (29:05):
That's what sucks. Though, too, is like this response is
so bad for Millar Clinton. I'm like, I don't know, man,
am I defending Trump?

Speaker 1 (29:11):
Now? Like just relaxed.

Speaker 3 (29:14):
It's like he's having a hell of a lot of fun.
At that we knew he was.

Speaker 1 (29:17):
A piece of ship. Find a new angle, yeah, exactly.

Speaker 4 (29:20):
We'll Speaking of finding a new angle, Eminem's has found
a new angle with milk chocolate pumpkin pie.

Speaker 3 (29:29):
Uh what the fuck are they doing? Emina a flavor
that is being dropped in June?

Speaker 1 (29:36):
Okay, I is this? Did they ever? This is basically
pumpkin spice latte.

Speaker 3 (29:41):
Yeah, pumpkin yeah, basically pumpkin pie.

Speaker 1 (29:44):
Yeah. Okay, is I thought I thought we as a
society agreed.

Speaker 2 (29:50):
That like August was as early as possible. Yeah, there's
there's a fucking cease fire. We do not we do
not fire our pumpkin spice weapons until August.

Speaker 4 (30:00):
Yeah, so for some reason, and I think it's just
bad market research. Okay, So the company's press release stated,
at Mars, we celebrate Halloween every day all yay long.
Must be an annoying place to work every day.

Speaker 1 (30:17):
Someone's like wearing like zombie makeup.

Speaker 4 (30:20):
Like dude, really, but apparently their quote research indicates the
gen Z and millennials plan to celebrate Halloween by dressing
up and planning for the holiday about six point eight
weeks beforehand, that which would put the start of the
Halloween Halloween season on the July fourth weekend.

Speaker 1 (30:40):
Wait, how does that work?

Speaker 4 (30:42):
It's got to be like a self reported poll, you
know where.

Speaker 2 (30:48):
There by dressing up and planning six point eight But
it says, well six point eight weeks from Memorial Day
is the fourth of July. Yea, what does that mean?
Why is why is Memorial Day? What is that in
relation to Halloween? Like all of this math is so bizarre.

Speaker 3 (31:06):
Yeah.

Speaker 2 (31:07):
In the full quote, this research indicates that jen Z
and millennials planning to celebrate Halloween by dressing up and
planning for the holiday about six point eight weeks beforehand. Well,
six point eight weeks from Memorial Day is the fourth
of July, so you still have plenty of time to
latch onto a pop culture trend and turn it into
a creative costume.

Speaker 3 (31:22):
What I don't. It's like, I don't.

Speaker 4 (31:25):
It's so no a single person who starts celebrating Halloween
or planning their Halloween costume in July. The only thing
like I do have a personal reminder set to try
and buy one of the skeletons in July, because that's
the only time that they're like available and affordable is
like on the home Depot website. I know people who

(31:47):
like snag them in like July and August. So I'm
gonna try that.

Speaker 2 (31:52):
This is I'm I'm actually really interested. I need more
clarity on this quote? Is so confusing?

Speaker 1 (31:58):
Is that gang? Please help me? Has been a long weekend.
I'm slightly sleep deprived.

Speaker 2 (32:02):
What is What does six point eight weeks from before Halloween?
How does that relate to Memorial Day and fourth of
July which is six point eight weeks from Memorial Day.

Speaker 4 (32:12):
The pre seasonal launch of the milk chocolate Pumpkin Pie
on M and M's strategic move that tapped into Mars's
market research. This research indicates the gen Z millennials plan
to celebrate Halloween by dressing up and planning for the
holiday about six point eight weeks beforehand.

Speaker 3 (32:27):
So is Memorial Day? Are they saying that's typically?

Speaker 4 (32:31):
Wait, Memorial Day is the one that already happened, right, Yeah, yeah,
that's the one.

Speaker 3 (32:36):
That just happened.

Speaker 1 (32:37):
What is Memorial Day? Why is that?

Speaker 2 (32:40):
What is the relation between Halloween and Memorial Day? And
this six point eight Like, is Food and Wine Magazine
just so fucking like uncritical that they just repost whatever
is like in this press release and they're like, yeah, yeah,
they're fucking six point eight weeks?

Speaker 1 (32:54):
Man, to when to what what do we mean?

Speaker 3 (32:59):
What are I'm talking about?

Speaker 2 (33:00):
What the fuck is dressing I'm talking about who's dressing
up six point eight weeks before Halloween?

Speaker 3 (33:06):
Not a real man, That's what I'm assed.

Speaker 1 (33:09):
What the yeah again, please Zeigang help me.

Speaker 2 (33:13):
I'm like, I'm actually like it's upsetting that I don't
understand what this even means.

Speaker 4 (33:17):
Yeah, I feel like we've lost the threat of reality.
Just either we have or the world has.

Speaker 1 (33:24):
Halfway to Halloween.

Speaker 2 (33:25):
Mars announces twenty twenty four Halloween lineup okay, and releases
their inaugural Tricks and Trends report It's Halloween all year long. Uh,
this is so fucking I'm like so upset that I
don't understand what this six.

Speaker 1 (33:43):
Point eight weeks fucking shit means. I think also because
no one is participating.

Speaker 2 (33:47):
Again, I'm old, I'm an elder millennial, so maybe I'm
not up on this. Like six point eight weeks ahead
of time, shit weeks after.

Speaker 1 (33:58):
So fucking stupid. I can't handle it. I can't handle
this shit? Is that? Yeah?

Speaker 3 (34:05):
What does that even mean?

Speaker 1 (34:07):
I have no idea. I have no idea.

Speaker 2 (34:10):
Then there's another one says they celebrate gen Z is
Halloween heroes. The Marrestricks revealed that enthusiasm for Halloween is
driving consumers to plan for Halloween earlier. They celebrate gen
Z celebrates Halloween early and off in thirty thirty six
percent say they plan to celebrate Halloween. Our plan for
the holiday more than a month in advance, and some
gen Zers already planning for Halloween now they're most likely

(34:32):
to I don't even.

Speaker 1 (34:34):
I don't know, I don't know. I don't know, I
don't know, I don't know.

Speaker 4 (34:38):
That's our chime. That tells us that we've spent way
too long on this. Yeah, we're move along.

Speaker 2 (34:44):
Yeah, saying that we may have we're having it's the
fucking all the plastic in my balls, that's right.

Speaker 1 (34:50):
I can't even I don't even know how to read.

Speaker 4 (34:53):
Let's take a quick break and we're gonna come back
and talk about more important food related stuff.

Speaker 1 (35:08):
What the fuck is this though?

Speaker 3 (35:10):
It's so weird that doesn't make any sense.

Speaker 1 (35:13):
Is there some kind of fucking typo or something?

Speaker 3 (35:16):
Do we think it was written by AI? Maybe?

Speaker 4 (35:19):
And like people, I feel like this is gonna start happening,
where like there's just going to be.

Speaker 3 (35:25):
Press releases that get fully.

Speaker 4 (35:29):
Just swallowed into the news story that we're generated by
AI and like don't make sense, but like nobody's paying
enough attention to like even fucking notice.

Speaker 1 (35:40):
Dude, I'm I can't.

Speaker 2 (35:42):
There's Memorial Day isn't even in the this actual report.

Speaker 1 (35:48):
I have no fucking clue what is going on?

Speaker 3 (35:51):
Yeah, many many unbearable moments laid down. It's twenty weeks
from Memorial Day.

Speaker 4 (35:56):
I think it's just a typo. It's foot the wine article.

Speaker 2 (36:01):
But it's a full sentence, well six it's as well
six point eight weeks from Memorial Day as the fourth
of July, so you still have plenty of time to
latch onto a pop culture trend and turn it into
a creative costume. Is a fourth of July? The fourth
of July is on six point eight weeks from Halloween?

Speaker 3 (36:20):
Right?

Speaker 1 (36:21):
What are they trying to fucking do to me? Right now?
This is the fuck?

Speaker 5 (36:24):
This?

Speaker 4 (36:25):
It must be an AI thing. But yeah, because the
typo doesn't even make sense.

Speaker 1 (36:29):
Three hourish they tell.

Speaker 3 (36:31):
Between July fourth and October thirty.

Speaker 1 (36:33):
First, it's seventeen weeks.

Speaker 3 (36:36):
Seventeen weeks, so.

Speaker 1 (36:37):
I don't know how that's gonna be it? Right? Are
we missing? Are we fucking missing something?

Speaker 6 (36:42):
I think I think you missed quite a bit putting
this story in the dot.

Speaker 2 (36:49):
I mean, now we're hooked, man, But now I don't
know what the fuck is going on.

Speaker 4 (36:54):
Even the guy on the Eminem's pumpkin pie package, the
little Eminem guy, he's an orient.

Speaker 3 (37:00):
Yeah, he looks startled.

Speaker 1 (37:02):
I didn't ask for this?

Speaker 3 (37:04):
What what? Don't blame me?

Speaker 1 (37:06):
All right?

Speaker 4 (37:06):
We have to move on, no matter how much our
listeners don't want us to. Uh. There is an online
controversy happening over Chipotle, where so there's a very popular
video on TikTok claiming that Chipotle portions have gotten smaller
unless the employees are being filmed, which seems like a

(37:29):
pretty paranoid way to buy a burrito, But.

Speaker 2 (37:32):
Oh my god, I'd be like, are you some kind
of fucking libs of TikTok freak?

Speaker 1 (37:36):
What are you doing with your camera out in the
Chipotle line?

Speaker 4 (37:42):
So they Chipotle felt the need to comment on this,
claiming that there have been no changes in portion size,
and then their CEO, Brian Nicole n I C c
O L gave an interview stating that the Chipotle phone
method is rude to our team members, which I agree
that it is rude. But then he suggested that one

(38:04):
of the great things about Chipotle is that you do
want more toppings. You just and then he like makes
a suggestive like smile, like sad nod, and then he's
like a little more scoop. You're gonna get a little
more scoop when you make like a little weird face
at the employee. And the look he gives is like

(38:26):
a disappointed stage parent. But yeah, it's like a weird
like sad smile that feels like it's acutely designed to
only work if you are the CEO of Chipotle trying
to order it at chip Like, certainly they will respond
to your look of grinning disappointment with a little extra

(38:47):
I don't think everyone else speaks the subtle body language
art of I can have you in your entire chain
of command, like wiped out of error, entire rastructure if
I need to, you.

Speaker 1 (39:01):
Know, you wanna you wanna know something pretty cool?

Speaker 3 (39:05):
What's that?

Speaker 1 (39:07):
I'm just, I'm just We're looking at a.

Speaker 2 (39:08):
Story where a once great restaurant where people were like,
love it, love the Britables. They hook you up so good,
Like the burritles are so delicious, the food quality is
so great. Are now saying the quality is going and
the shitter the portion sizes fucking suck. What the fuck
is private equity going here? You know, couldn't be private equity?

(39:33):
Did they get some investors? Do they get some investors?

Speaker 1 (39:36):
There's there's definitely there are there is investment from private
equity into Chipotlet Wow, how about that?

Speaker 2 (39:43):
I mean, look, I'm not not that one has to
do with the other, because I think this is being
seen across all fast food in general. I mean like
there was a whole analysis where most people now in
the United States see fast food isn't like a luxury
because it's soberpriced. But the beef with Chipotle has been simmering,
and I.

Speaker 4 (40:00):
I mean that is too pun to be Like even
if it was one intentional part of your brain knew
what it was doing there, and I salute it.

Speaker 2 (40:10):
But like people are always pissed, like what the fuck
is up with your pull? Like that's the ship is
not the same. It's like the portions are not as good.

Speaker 1 (40:18):
I think. I don't know. I mean, what are you
gonna do? What are you gonna do?

Speaker 3 (40:25):
I'm gonna be furious Miles, Yeah, yeah, Now, I don't know.

Speaker 4 (40:29):
It's it's like he's just suggesting that you can just
like creepily like nod at a worker, like I don't know,
it's just such a weird like trying to be fun.
But what if they like misread your body language and
I think you're you know, you want a baggy of

(40:50):
weed or a baggy of coke or something. You know,
it's like giving people meaningful, weird little nods.

Speaker 5 (40:58):
I know.

Speaker 2 (40:58):
That's so Also, so if that's the whole basis of
your restaurant. What about the people who don't like to
aren't necessarily that social and are willing to be like, ah,
you know what I mean, Like I'm I'm not always
trying to be like hey, come on man, Like sometimes
I don't have the energy, Like sometimes I don't have
the social battery to try and use skills of persuasion

(41:19):
when I just want my fucking burrito bowl or whatever
the fuck I'm going.

Speaker 1 (41:22):
To get that Chipotle.

Speaker 2 (41:24):
So the idea that it's like, yeah, man, you just
got to fucking like nudge them too, and that's the norm.

Speaker 1 (41:30):
I don't know.

Speaker 4 (41:30):
I want my burrito to be able to feed a
family of four. Yeah, yeah, all right. Finally we got
Alex Jones giving us a fake. I haven't spent a
lot of time watching Alex Jones' live streams in my life,

(41:51):
and I'm fucking up clearly.

Speaker 1 (41:52):
Got to say yeah.

Speaker 4 (41:54):
But he went viral over the weekend for seemingly breaking
down crying during an episode of Info Wars, and it
was popular, I think with different people for different reasons.
Like some people are like we've got to come together
to help him, and a lot of people were like
loving it, but if you look at the full clip,

(42:16):
it uh like the the thing that was getting shared.
Most suggested that he was like Alex Shows breaks down
because he has to like sell his ranch, but if
you look at the whole clip, it's so weird. Like
he tries to fake cry fails. His producer tells him
to like I think people need to hear like a

(42:38):
war cry and get angry, and he like depressingly, like
sounds like he's depressed, and he's like, oh, it's all
a big joke to you.

Speaker 1 (42:46):
Huh yeah, this is just let's let the let's.

Speaker 2 (42:50):
Let the con man show us himself.

Speaker 3 (42:53):
When I know I lead to night, they're gonna shut
us down. Maybe it's tomorrow the next day.

Speaker 2 (42:58):
I just want people to know I love you, I
believe in you, I believe in him, I believe in
my grandparents.

Speaker 3 (43:04):
Believe I just want to stop these people.

Speaker 1 (43:09):
And the spit came out.

Speaker 3 (43:10):
Yeah, he's sitting a little bit.

Speaker 2 (43:14):
And it's like, not sorry, you're still gonna get this
drunk driving arrest these people.

Speaker 1 (43:21):
Oh my god, dude, hard fight. These people hate our children.

Speaker 2 (43:30):
Oh my god, you're getting lazy now, you're just doing
the greatest hits people.

Speaker 1 (43:35):
Because we can't give up now, we have to keep going.
We have to stay here. We have to let them
be shot us down.

Speaker 2 (43:40):
We have these poor fuckers on either side of him.

Speaker 1 (43:44):
Jones, I think everybody needs a war cry, man, can
you dude?

Speaker 2 (43:49):
This is so fucking just the way this production works.
Hey man, I think Jones are gonna need a war
cry bro. Yeah, because that like crocodile ship fucking made
me really comfortable. Due was missed. That would even miss
you're gonna get you wouldn't even get a Razzie for
that ship. That's how bad that was.

Speaker 1 (44:07):
Jones, I think everybody needs a war cry. Man. Can
you muster a war cry? It's a big joke. It's
not really though. I mean it is, but it isn't.
It's also I mean it is, and it isn't.

Speaker 3 (44:20):
Fine, it's my voice.

Speaker 1 (44:22):
It's gosh, transmission under attack.

Speaker 3 (44:32):
Dude.

Speaker 1 (44:33):
He can't even scream good anymore.

Speaker 3 (44:35):
I know.

Speaker 4 (44:36):
Wait, wait for this, all right, let's go to let's
go to one more speaker, let's go to myron w
W stream. And then it's just there's just this awkward
moment where the guy's like, all right, so we're gonna
go to a caller.

Speaker 1 (44:54):
Now, I guess.

Speaker 2 (44:55):
That's wild that they're like, all right, we're gonna go
to Myron, the one of the co hosts of that
Fresh and Fish dumb Ass Man the Sphere show.

Speaker 1 (45:02):
Oh wow, is so, who's like, you used to work
with a whole lad security. You guys seed them.

Speaker 2 (45:06):
We got deep platform because we were doing the most
wild shit on YouTube.

Speaker 1 (45:09):
Why need you want to pay us now? They're so fucked?
Oh my god?

Speaker 2 (45:13):
Okay, well yeah, sorry, Alex. Really hate to see that, man,
hate to see that. You're even you can't even create
threats real enough in your own mind to actually cry.

Speaker 4 (45:24):
But so elsewhere in the episode, he admitted that he
was crying, Uh, he wasn't really crying, and then also said,
I'm trying to cry as a fake thing.

Speaker 1 (45:35):
I'm trying to cry a fake thing because that would
be gay if I cried, sincerely, So it's a Joe.

Speaker 4 (45:42):
So turned out the FBI was not outside the studio
just like waiting to burst through the doors as he feared,
and he later claimed that he only believed his show
was going to be shut down because he noticed one
of his buildings guards looking.

Speaker 3 (45:57):
At me weird, Oh my god, which I mean, he.

Speaker 2 (46:00):
Just he he's just a fucking liar, you know what
I mean. It doesn't even matter what he said, it was,
he knew what he was doing. He's just like, I
need to fucking get more people freaked out on my
side to help me.

Speaker 1 (46:10):
So let me just do this fake crisis on It.

Speaker 4 (46:14):
Just looked so like paranoid and just I don't I
don't think he's doing well, guys, And I'm worried about him,
worried about Alex.

Speaker 1 (46:21):
Wish I cared, I wish, I wish.

Speaker 2 (46:23):
I wanted you to do well, Alex, but you're in
a prison of your absolute own construction and made you
enjoy every moment of it.

Speaker 4 (46:30):
All right, Well, those are some of the things that
are trending on this Monday. Junior third Miles, I think,
I think that's like I'm gonna need a war cry
take this out of here.

Speaker 2 (46:42):
If I don't ship myself so bad, but let me
let me touch it.

Speaker 1 (46:48):
Yep, it's shit.

Speaker 6 (46:51):

the show. Until then, be kind to each other, be
