Episode Notes

We decided to make 'Midnight Sun' the last Twilight book we read, and it is just as deflating as all the others. I don't know why we expected a copy/paste rewrite of the first book from Edwards perspective to be any better.

We learn:

  • Glen's neighbors hang out in his yard while his trees get taken down
  • Ben doesn't have much to say about the last two weeks
  • Gretchen DOESN'T have a knock-knock joke
  • Gl...

    The story of a simple man carrying on the tradition of taking on the role of becoming the new Guy Fieri. And there's a giant Burrito that rotates in the sky spewing flavor on the inhabitants of 'flavor town'.

    We learn:

  • The turds at Ladies Fright Podcast do an impression of me. It's both flattering... and enraging.
  • I have to work tomorrow.

    Episode Notes

    Would you think that preventing a woman from knowing that she has a fatal illness is a sign of a loving relationship? Apparently everyone in 1970 thought so. And everyone agreed that Harvard is the most important place on earth.

    Also? referring to women as 'cheese' was acceptable too.

    We learn:

  • Ben met the ACTUAL George Washington over the weekend
  • Gretchen comes up with a joke that is perfect for ol' Glen
  • Gl...

    A hypocritical Nora decides that they need to kill themselves. And after being called a chicken, Joe is all in. Then they don't when it's inconvenient. The story has almost nothing to do with cocaine.

    We learn:

  • It's finally raining, which is great for my lawn, but blows for a guy without a working dryer.
  • New cats pee EVERYWHERE
  • Ladies Fright podcast is releasing their episode where Jackie does an impression ...

    Episode Notes

    Misunderstood and whiny, a man decides he'd rather kill himself than find a new line of work or get his kids to like him for who he is.

  • My cat likes me
  • It's fathers day, and I made my kids watch Ponyo with me
  • My dryer is still broken
  • My oldest wants their own segment on my show where they make fun of me
  • Promos: Drunk Theory Let Me Tell You Somethin' Bitch

    We read what is basically grandma porn for the idea of being trapped on an island with other peoples babies. It's disturbing and shines a light on the fantasies of a very lonely author. We learn:

  • Ben doesn't get the joke when Glen plays the Ratchet Book Club promo
  • Glen can't have the "Summer of '89" with his friend while they're both unemployed
  • Trench-mouth is considered a 'bums disease&#...

    This week I check in with an author I've read before by reading about greedy teens who search for a haunted ouija board, and a greedy family who battle aliens to keep an anal probe. We learn:

  • Drac has fallen off the map, and I'm worried about him
  • I've coined the phrase "Glenergy" to describe what makes my show so successful
  • My kid likes the 'Let Me Tell You Somethin' Bitch' podcast
  • I shoul...

    What starts out as a boring date for Jada at a minor league baseball game, turns into the most graphic MLM Jada has ever peeped on. Just in time for Pride month!

    This turned out to be REALLY descriptive. So, consider this your warning for adult content.

    Our man is tricked into thinking he had a successful escape, then he fights his nemesis, and decides that rain is key to his conquering the desert. Oh, and there's no romance. The warrior-maid is hardly a factor in this story.

    What do you do when wanda over at the 'From Words to Ideas" podcast gives you a story that is impossibly sad, and the turds at the 'Ladies Fright' Podcast make fun of the way you talk?

    Who would have thought that the first Y.A. book would involve fights and hair grease? We didn't, but we know all about it now. We learn:

  • Glen gets hit on by a nurse, but is too stupid to realize it.
  • Ben's boss quit her job! But she's still working there part-time... Ugh.
  • Gretchen's bird this week salivates. It salivates and ungulates in the sky. It's gross.
  • Ben really doesn't like the new directio...

    David STILL can't get over his man-crush, and Dickens clearly doesn't like small people. All this and a neighbor with a vague sexual issue make for a really long chapter.
