Speaker 2 (00:13):
Which we are going to talk about. And that is
a very good title that I just came up with.

Speaker 1 (00:18):
I am Miles and I am joined by Thank you

Speaker 2 (00:23):
My guest host today.

Speaker 1 (00:25):
The wonderful guest host wagon continues as we go from
show to show, so it's great having paulby.

Speaker 2 (00:33):
We're going to say what's trending on this wonderful Tuesday July.
The two. I don't like to say second.

Speaker 3 (00:38):
That's just the thing I have because you're always first mile.

Speaker 2 (00:42):
Thank you.

Speaker 1 (00:43):
I'm always one, and I don't like two plays one
but the But the episode title was in reference of
cup noodles. There look, I love cup noodles. Cup noodles
have gotten me through some really hard times. There's still
a go to snack at time. I like to spice
up my cup noodles the squeeze of lemon and a
little bit of cilantro and you can take the chicken

(01:04):
one to the next.

Speaker 2 (01:05):
Fucking level if you have to invessine very easy uns.

Speaker 1 (01:09):
I grew up, I grew up trying to just add
my little things to things there, and that was one
of them. But anyway, cup Noodles has definitely like they've
had like this run of releasing all kinds of like
wacky flavors.

Speaker 2 (01:21):
Like they had a caffeinated.

Speaker 1 (01:22):
Gaming cup noodle that was like, yeah, man, like this
will give you heart palpitations, but at least you might
you know, be killing it in a Battle Royal type game.

Speaker 3 (01:31):
That they included the four logo in it. You know,
you used to have to drink that separately in one
generation and now they just poured it right.

Speaker 1 (01:37):
In exactly boil the noodles, drain it, then use four
Loco as your new face broth.

Speaker 2 (01:43):
Yeah, yeah, like a nice.

Speaker 1 (01:45):
Four Loaks base when I get this really wonderful broth going.
But yeah, the new one is Campfires'mores cup noodle as
they call it a quote gooey sweet noodle experience. I
do not like this, it says go on quote an
unmistakable blend of decan and chocolate, marshmallow and Graham cracker

(02:05):
flavors with noodles. Now I know what they're doing because
they do this all the time. Is what we always
talk about. This when brands do it. They're just trying
to get us to talk about it. Congratulations, But sometimes
we've got to talk about it because some of the
ideas are so backwards.

Speaker 2 (02:21):
I can't believe that that's even a thing.

Speaker 3 (02:24):
I think jokes on them. We should buy the shit
out of it and force them to make it forever.

Speaker 1 (02:32):
We're like, yeah, we're not eating the chicken one, the
shrimp one. No, fuck that, I guess. Are marshmallows vegan friendly?

Speaker 3 (02:39):
There are vegan marshmallows, but they're tradition better that No,
the traditional marshmallows are not vegan, but there are, But
the vegan marshmallows I think are better than regular marshmallows.
And other people who are not vegan have told me
the same thing.

Speaker 1 (02:53):
Oh shit, I mean, I'm not like such a marshmallow
fan where I feel like i'd be.

Speaker 2 (02:57):
Like, oh, these are vegan, you know what I mean?
How some people like that with certain foods.

Speaker 3 (03:01):
But yeah, I need an animal to suffer for this
to taste.

Speaker 2 (03:05):
Yeah, what is it?

Speaker 1 (03:06):
Just?

Speaker 2 (03:06):
Gelatin?

Speaker 1 (03:07):
Is?

Speaker 3 (03:07):
That's probably what I think it's like gelatin? Maybe, Like
do they use like any egg or dairy products in it?
I don't know.

Speaker 2 (03:13):
I don't know.

Speaker 1 (03:14):
Yeah, here's I know, everything in a marshmallow. It's a white,
puffy sugar cloud. But it's by the like one of
the executives at the parent company of cup noodles, Niching
is I know, the Japanese company that owns them. This
dude said, released a statement just like acting like just
waxing poetic about how this s'mores cup noodle is quote

(03:36):
transforming the classic flavor into a bold, unexpected experience that
will capture the hearts and palets of consumers nationwide, which
is why not a single fucking one of the freaky
flavors has existed past the little bump you need in
I guess impressions or something.

Speaker 3 (03:53):
If you capture a challette that enjoys that, let it
go like releasing that the wild Yeah you don't truly.

Speaker 1 (04:03):
Next up is trending AOC impeachment, So on Monday, Alexandria
Okazio Cortes said that she will submit articles of impeachment
against members of the US Supreme Court when the House
of Representatives gets back into session from their little summer break.
As she said on Twitter, we don't call it x

(04:24):
here quote. The Supreme Court has become consumed by a
corruption crisis beyond its control. Today's ruling represents an assault
on American democracy. It's up to Congress to defend our
nation from this authoritarian capture. I intend on filing articles
of impeachment upon our return.

Speaker 3 (04:40):
Now does that work?

Speaker 1 (04:43):
So it would be like anything, like you would have
a trial and then like you, you know, you'd send
it to the Senate for like a conviction. But the
last time a Supreme Court justice was actually impeached successfully
was the nineteenth century, So I'm not sure what will
happen here.

Speaker 2 (04:58):
But again, also considering the fact.

Speaker 1 (05:00):
That the Republicans control the House that I don't think
this has much of a shot unless there are other
people who are just being like, well, I don't like Katanji,
so maybe I'll vote for this because most of them
have been celebrating the Supreme Court decision that gives Trump
basic community for official acts.

Speaker 3 (05:18):
I think the best we can do. Sorry, my dog
is growling right now because he hates the Supreme Court.

Speaker 2 (05:24):
No, I get no good those are good.

Speaker 3 (05:26):
Good job, Sammy. I'm training him to just buy uh
for a bit. I think the best thing we can
do is just somebody's gotta buite. Take one for the team.
Promise Clarence Thomas, like a few yachts, you know, a
year or whatever he needs, and then just pay them
to get the fuck out of there if we can bribe,

(05:48):
if they could be bribed to fake the.

Speaker 1 (05:52):
Ing that like saying like, I'll give you a salary
that's bigger than the one you got to fuck off forever.

Speaker 2 (05:59):
Yeah, down with that.

Speaker 3 (06:01):
Well we need to do that with like a lot
of them.

Speaker 1 (06:04):
Yeah yeah, I mean or like again, this is just
so wild too, because like on the heels of what
Joe Biden was saying after this decision, He's like, well,
I'm going to respect the limits like the scope of
my power. That doesn't help anything. And you're basically saying
I'm going to lay down and get just ripped apart.
If you have someone coming in who's already been like
I can't wait to exercise my power when there are

(06:25):
no checks on my power, yay, uh, I know I don't, yeah,
like do something with the Supreme Court I have.

Speaker 3 (06:30):
The best thing we can do is try to convince
Joe Biden like the limits of his power are beyond
what he actually thinks they are and just be like, yeah,
you can assassinate people like that was always legal?

Speaker 2 (06:43):
All right.

Speaker 1 (06:44):
Well number one is like, well I got some people
from my childhood I want to check you Like, well, no.

Speaker 3 (06:48):
Not like that president, Yeah, some other people.

Speaker 2 (06:51):
Yeah, what about Anita Hill? She was a real pill
for me.

Speaker 1 (06:55):
During Clarence Thomas's confirmation, You're like, Okay, you know.

Speaker 2 (06:58):
What shouldn't I told you? Do not tell him about
shit after six pm? He starts saying, some do some
free associating.

Speaker 3 (07:06):
Shit him anything after six pm. It's like, don't get
a grumlin wet.

Speaker 2 (07:09):
Or like doesn't buy any fact. Oh my god.

Speaker 1 (07:15):
And we're still after the only one anyway. And then
also on the heels of that proclamation from the Supreme
Court that Trump is God King of America, he's also saying, like,
I should have my freak elector's entire case dismissed because
of what the Supreme Court just did. Also, those thirty
four felonies, those should also be thrown out as well.

(07:40):
So you know, he's already completely gone full speed ahead
with being.

Speaker 2 (07:44):
Like nothing can fucking touch me anymore.

Speaker 1 (07:48):
So we'll see a developing story as we watch the
continued deterioration.

Speaker 2 (07:53):
Of the Nation. Hey, that rhymes deterioration of the Nation.
New show coming fall.

Speaker 1 (08:00):
All right, we will take a quick break and we
will be right back with some other trending stories.

Speaker 2 (08:16):
And we're back.

Speaker 1 (08:18):
The New York Post has a story out about how
gen Z is quote sad phishing. It's a trend on
social media. I did not know what this was, but
according to a twenty twenty one research paper published in
the Journal of American College, that sounds like a dubious.

Speaker 3 (08:42):
Journal American College, the School of Education.

Speaker 1 (08:47):
I'm sorry, then there's a yeah. Anyway, there's another person
who said on news. So I take this with a
grain of salt, but I think this is something where
people are like observing a trend and be like this,
this could be something very interesting that The habit of
quote sad fishing is defined as the tendency of social
media users to publish exaggerations of their personality to generate sympathy.

(09:09):
The research found that many sad fishers display anxious attachment.
It concluded that this may quote may not be triggered
by an acute perceived lack of social support, but rather
it may be more strongly related to the persistent trait
of anxious attachment, and I'm like sad fishing, Like I mean,
I definitely know people who are like always like oversharing

(09:31):
in stories.

Speaker 3 (09:33):
You know what, if you don't want to follow me,
just say that.

Speaker 2 (09:38):
Look, I'm not really good at confrontation. I like to
passive aggressively confront people using stories from then York, yea,
from the Yeah, why don't you come on?

Speaker 1 (09:48):
But anyway, I've just read about this thing about the
American Journal of College.

Speaker 3 (09:52):
I was bringing about this thing about how you don't
invite me to dinner anymore?

Speaker 1 (09:57):
What the fuck is this about? Don't worry about the story. Man,
Now we're talking you and me.

Speaker 2 (10:00):
What's going on with? What's going on with you? Would
I say.

Speaker 3 (10:03):
Something I've definitely seen. I definitely have a lot of
friends who will post like pictures of them crying and
be like, my life is falling apart, and it happens
like frequently, you know, and it's like whatever, life's hard,
cope how you will. But I do think that, like
it's just because it's social media. I feel like the
housewives in the fifties were doing this. They were just

(10:25):
like ominously like making the pies and being sad, you
know what I mean, Like, I don't know if the
expression of it is bad. I think like treat the
symptom or the source rather than the symptoms.

Speaker 2 (10:37):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (10:37):
Like one of these psychologists who us talking about it said,
if you're putting anything on social media, what is your
motivation for what you need or want people to know
who are not in your closed circle?

Speaker 2 (10:48):
What is your reason for posting?

Speaker 1 (10:49):
What's your motivation for posting something for the whole world
to see? Which is a very generational observation.

Speaker 3 (10:55):
Cherry Boomer sounding, That's like something my mom would say.

Speaker 2 (10:58):
Like why would you share that?

Speaker 1 (10:59):
I'm like, you come from a generation where people you
you refuse to acknowledge that therapy is a thing or
that outwardly expressing what your needs are or your regrets
are is like that's actually healthy.

Speaker 3 (11:10):
Also, like, if you give me money, I'll stop expressing shit.
But I can't. I can't. I'm not even kidding, Like,
if you give me money, if you give me a house,
what sadness am I going to express? Our generations and
the generation below us don't have money. This is all
we need, likes Okay, we need some form of currency

(11:32):
that we can pretend we like will real value. We
can't get actual currency.

Speaker 1 (11:39):
And so what Yeah, so what if I lie about
pretending to lose my job for sympathy likes, I'm gonna
do it.

Speaker 2 (11:46):
Yeah, I'm just gonna do it.

Speaker 3 (11:48):
We're or we're like, we have a job that's not
paying enough.

Speaker 2 (11:51):
Yeah whatever.

Speaker 1 (11:52):
Well it's weird too, because, like I mean, obviously this
is the New York Post, so of course they're going
to go into like and something's wrong with those people anyway.

Speaker 3 (11:59):
Trouble I killed wine and gen Z killed sadness, like.

Speaker 2 (12:04):
Like authentic sadness. You know what happened to the strong
silent type.

Speaker 3 (12:10):
When you go to your second wive's house, right, yeah,
your secret family, secret family, right, and you're really sad
because you're gonna miss your first skins birth.

Speaker 2 (12:21):
Shit, Yeah sad.

Speaker 1 (12:22):
I always love how like, But my favorite still are
those the ways they try and like define or articulate
just the disillusionment with capitalism that workers experience.

Speaker 2 (12:33):
Yeah, it's resenteeism. It's uh, it's quiet quite quitting.

Speaker 1 (12:37):
Resignations and shit like that. It's like, no, it's called
being alienated from your labor. And yeah, uh there's that story.
So thanks American College of Journal and for giving us
that the next thing trending is Carrine. Jean Pierre, White
House spokesperson again, while people are still reeling from the

(13:00):
debate performance, she was asked a pretty direct question about
what is going on with Joe Biden?

Speaker 2 (13:09):
Is there some kind of cognitive decline that you know of?

Speaker 4 (13:12):
And this was her answer, does President Biden at eighty
one years old, have Alzheimer's any form of dementia or
degenerative illness that caused these sorts of lapses?

Speaker 1 (13:25):
And it's a yes or no question. And if you
don't know, why don't you? As one of his senior
staff members know?

Speaker 4 (13:34):
Guy's her answers for.

Speaker 1 (13:34):
You, are you ready for it's a note and I
hope you're asking the other guy the same exact question. Yeah, fair,
absolutely fair, But I don't expect her to be like, well,
you know, I got my theories.

Speaker 3 (13:51):
She's like, he's a decline. I'm in denial, but I
didn't want a sad fish on you. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (13:57):
And also, you know Jen Saki left and already got
the gig at MSNBC, so my.

Speaker 2 (14:01):
Options are kind of limited right now.

Speaker 1 (14:04):
I don't want to do a podcast quite yet it
feels a little desperate.

Speaker 2 (14:08):
But the short answer is no.

Speaker 1 (14:10):
But yeah, it's like at the very least, you know,
you can be like, you know sometimes you know people
I don't know. I don't even know if I'm like asking,
like can you acknowledge that he had a senior moment
or whatever?

Speaker 3 (14:21):
But we're so fun like what like if she's like, no,
his performance was still bad, So then it's like he's
at the top of his game. And that's what we got,
you know what I mean a follow.

Speaker 1 (14:35):
Up question, that's the top of his game? Was that
so well, that was an off night? When is he
at the top of his game when he's screaming about
stuff that it's pretty good, it's pretty invigorating. I love
how like like obviously Volte Blue, no matter who Twitter is, like,
this was such a fantastic answer, like let's let's ignore

(14:56):
all the warning signs and yeah, and I get it too,
like obviously Trump is also spiraling before our eyes. But
it's just so funny that the mirror the fact that
he is in a more energetic version of decline. People
are like Joe Biden's getting old, and.

Speaker 2 (15:14):
Yeah, we are.

Speaker 3 (15:15):
That's the thing is that like Trump is such a
bad candidate and the only person that is currently like
beating him at like being horrible at campaigning is Joe Biden.
Like if they had picked anyone else, it would have
been like so much easier. Yeah, but they were like,
let's resuscitate this man one more night.

Speaker 2 (15:34):
Yeah, you know, see what we can get, See what
we can get.

Speaker 1 (15:38):
And then finally, this is a topic very near and
dear to my hearts and maybe millennials and younger Airheads
the candy you used to love eating them. They would
always sell them, like at the snack shop and like
my junior high like you know, like you can buy
a little snacks or whatever in the cafeteria in high school,
and there was always this airhead flavor, white mystery flavor.

(16:01):
And I was like, what the fuck, Like you never
knew what it was.

Speaker 3 (16:04):
That was every guy in Utah growing up. You know
what I mean?

Speaker 2 (16:09):
White mystery.

Speaker 1 (16:10):
Who will replace Joe Biden on the ticket? It's a
white mystery. It's a white mystery.

Speaker 3 (16:16):
And in common one of the raisins in there, that's
a white mystery.

Speaker 1 (16:19):
It's a white mystery. Some things are just white flavor mysteries.

Speaker 2 (16:23):
That we will not be able to suss out.

Speaker 1 (16:26):
But it turns out we've recently found out through the Takeout,
one of my favorite food blogs because I like always
they report on things that are important to me.

Speaker 3 (16:34):
It's apparently a combinations a food blog.

Speaker 1 (16:38):
Yeah, I think if you're like, if you're like a
millennial though, it's like one of those things.

Speaker 3 (16:43):
Right, you're like it's a food pyramid.

Speaker 2 (16:45):
Was yeah, just like, but what was it? What was
mystery flavor?

Speaker 1 (16:50):
Like, what the fuck is supposed to be? And apparently
it's a It might it's a combination of several flavors
that might include cherry, strawberry, watermelon, grape, green apple, orange,
and blue raspberry from one day to the next.

Speaker 3 (17:01):
It's the scraps. They put the scraps together.

Speaker 2 (17:04):
It's exactly that's exactly what it is.

Speaker 1 (17:06):
So they were kind of like, we shouldn't be throwing
away the stuff when we're like switching flavors. So what
we can do is take the mish mash parts and
rebrand it as mystery. And now we've got a little
bit of a marketing hit. We got a little bit
of you know, intrigue for and like we're not we're
not actually wasting the candy that we're making.

Speaker 3 (17:27):
You're also gas lighting everyone into thinking they're all tasting
the same flavor.

Speaker 2 (17:31):
But this is all like cherry, grape, yours bot. I
don't know. Do they all say the same to me?

Speaker 1 (17:38):
I don't know, man, maybe you should, maybe you should
visit your neurologists or something. But apparently so like, they
don't stop production in between making the different flavors, so
like quote, instead of pausing and cleaning the machinery between
rounds of say cherry and grape, it keeps.

Speaker 3 (17:56):
God forbid, they cast the inspection.

Speaker 1 (18:01):
Yeah right, serious, seriously, I think it's more just to
be like to clean out all the flavor, you know what,
I mean, to get it out to the next thing.

Speaker 2 (18:09):
So it just keeps churning out candies.

Speaker 1 (18:12):
But they don't put the food dye in it, so
it just comes out and it's like natural, it's natural
white state. So the mystery flavors quote are essentially mashups
of whichever flavors are being produced at any hiveven time.
That is really unsatisfying. But also like I feel like
that webe meme.

Speaker 4 (18:28):
Wor Yeah yeah, okay, okay, I know about that.

Speaker 2 (18:32):
So yeah, we've we've solved one of life's small mysteries.

Speaker 3 (18:36):
We did it. The answer was, thank you so.

Speaker 1 (18:38):
Much for joining me on this trending episode.

Speaker 2 (18:42):
We will chat.

Speaker 1 (18:43):
More tomorrow on the main episode. Spoiler alert, Aldy and
I are taking over. We will talk to you then
and until then, take care of yourselves, take care of
each other, get the vaccine, don't do nothing about white supremacy,
and please just be well and we will see you soon.

Speaker 3 (19:00):
Okay, bye everybody.
