Speaker 1 (00:00):
Time, blindness and other musings. It's one more thing. I'm
strong and Getty one more thing. So we got onto
the topic of stretching on the Armstrong and Getty Show today.
Joe's a big advocate of it, and it just obviously
is a good idea and everybody should be doing it.

And I don't know how it hasn't become part of
our national hygiene in terms of things we talk about
with kids all the time. Don't smoke, stay out of
the sun, and stretch. It's ad stretch to that.

Speaker 2 (00:33):
Yeah, I think it's because kids hardly need to, and
you just the need grows as you get older. And
our our median culture, so you know, have been so
oriented towards stuff for young people.

Speaker 1 (00:46):
I don't know, if you play any sports even when
you're young, these they have you stretch all the time.

Speaker 3 (00:51):
But I remember them telling me to stretch, and me
stretching and feeling nothing and wondering why I was doing right.

Speaker 1 (00:57):
That's funny watching my niece, who was an athlete stretched
all the time. She got like put both head leg
feet behind her head and stuff like, it's like, what
are you stretching exactly? You seemed to be rubber, but
we got this text about it. I thought it was
interesting stretching. What's your cat or dog the first thing
they do when they wake up his stretch, Well, you
ends up big brains. Apparently overcame that. Yeah, most animals

that they do that regularly, they stretch. I'm flexible and
I'm not a cat. So since we got on the
topic of stretching, I brought up the story of being
at a farmer's market with my kids and this dude
walked in front of me in sunglasses, did the splits
down to the ground, pulled a can out of his backpack,

opened it up, and started eating eggs out of a can.

Speaker 2 (01:43):
Canned eggs.

Speaker 4 (01:45):
A delicacy.

Speaker 1 (01:47):
And I don't know if he like put the eggs
in a can, or if you can buy canned eggs
or what. He was prepared for this little thing. And
it was very odd, and my kids were like, Dad,
what's going on here? And I didn't know, and eventually
we walked away. Then I googled it and it turned
out it was like TikTok craze or something in my
town or something. Anyway, a guy goes around doing the
splits in front of people and eating canned eggs to
get in a reaction. Somebody else films it. I don't know.

Speaker 3 (02:08):
Katie's done a little research on this. He is the
lone trend master. Okay, he's splits and the eggs. He's
the only guy doing it. He is the only guy
doing it, and he is known as split Man, according
to this reddit thrill. I've gone through way too much
to get to these answers, but here we go. He's
known as the split Man. Apparently he is a theater

major who's taking classes at Davis.

Speaker 1 (02:35):
He's an engineer major. You said he's going to be
an engineer. He's this theater major.

Speaker 3 (02:40):
Theater major. And this is not being videoed. He is
doing this at random. Apparently he has been going up
in front of the professor and the econ classes that
he's taking and interrupts the lectures by dropping into the splits.

Speaker 4 (02:56):
That dude has weird vibes.

Speaker 3 (02:58):
I was grocery shopping the other day, dropped down in
front of me and.

Speaker 4 (03:01):
Did the splits.

Speaker 3 (03:02):
Yeah, but we are talking about the same guy because
someone posted a photo of the flat earth booth that
you were referring to and said that they saw him
do it.

Speaker 4 (03:13):
Right in front of that boot.

Speaker 1 (03:14):
Okay, that was probably the day I was there.

Speaker 3 (03:16):
Yeah, but so this is not being videoed.

Speaker 4 (03:20):
He is doing this.

Speaker 1 (03:21):
For fund say, you know, I appreciate that as a purist.
He's not trying to, you know, just get clicks on TikTok.
He minds it. He's so many little.

Speaker 2 (03:30):
They just you know, they start out as an idealistic
split egg eating person, but then they're seduced by the
money in the fame, right, and it's not art anymore.
They sell out, right, Yeah, exactly before you know, if
they're doing splits and eating cand eggs for the man.

Speaker 3 (03:48):
Jack, someone suggested here that the polite thing to do
in that situation is to also drop and do the
splits with him, so he's not alone.

Speaker 1 (03:55):
Roy. There'd be some cracking and screaming if I did that.

Speaker 2 (03:57):
Oh my god, I can't imagine.

Speaker 4 (04:00):
So anyway, there there's an answer there. I can't find
a video of you, but he's known.

Speaker 1 (04:05):
That's interesting. It is it is. It is a DoD
do like art, warhole like art. Huh.

Speaker 3 (04:16):
Grant you that a lot of people are surprised by
his stature. They're saying they were surprised to be able
to see a man of his size wearing jeans able
to drop down into the splits.

Speaker 1 (04:25):
So so they noticed the same thing I did. He's
not the body type you generally expect out of somebody
who can immediately drop to the ground and do the splits.
And he's wear geens.

Speaker 4 (04:33):
People are saying, this guy's the reason I carry a taser.

Speaker 1 (04:36):
No, he seems completely harmless. It's just odd.

Speaker 2 (04:40):
Oh that's powder. I'm looking on Amazon to figure out
if I could buy canned eggs.

Speaker 1 (04:47):
He put him out of his backpacket. May have been
a he has a can and he puts eggs in it.

Speaker 4 (04:53):
Oh, no, I'm looking. There's canned quail eggs.

Speaker 2 (04:55):
Yeah, that's what I'm seeing.

Speaker 1 (04:56):
Yeah, that was weird. Good for well, split man. Here's
to you. I hope I made you a little more famous.

Speaker 3 (05:04):
I mean, I know eggs are expensive, but I don't
know that I would ever go to the canned egg
option afing those hard boiled eggs that are in plastic.

Speaker 4 (05:12):
For some reason, if.

Speaker 1 (05:12):
I remember correctly, it was a hot day and he
was wearing a sweater also, so he didn't jeans a
sweater eating canned eggs, doing the splits in the middle
of the crowd, and everybody else was just ignoring him.
Me and my kids were staring straight at him, like,
what z hell.

Speaker 2 (05:26):
He's so headed for homelessness or something something great.

Speaker 1 (05:31):
I'm predicting something great. I see greatness in this man's eyes.
I couldn't see his eyes.

Speaker 3 (05:36):
He was wearing sunglasses, eating canned eggs well in the
splits in the middle of.

Speaker 1 (05:41):
A farmer's market. You know, I'm gonna keep stretching and
if I can join him, there'll be the two of
us drop down on both sides.

Speaker 4 (05:46):
You dream big.

Speaker 1 (05:50):
And I'll have a nutcracker and some walnuts. It'll be
my act.

Speaker 2 (05:55):
I was just gonna say, if you were to be
inspired by him and inflict your own data ist arc
on the on the populace, what would you go with?
I mean what I mean, because as what the f
is he doing? Acts? Go, that's that's pretty good.

Speaker 1 (06:15):
Yeah. I don't really believe in data style art. The original,
most famous one was the Urinal. Was a picture of
a urinal, or was an actual urinal. It took a
France and New York by storm. I just that sort
of crap. I just I have no appreciation for whatsoever whatever. Okay,
so it's way different than nobody ever expected a urinal

could be art. Yeah, you're right for a reason, because
it's not. Because it's not. Yeah, well do you.

Speaker 3 (06:41):
Guys remember where that it was some museum or art
set up where they taped a banana to.

Speaker 1 (06:48):
The wall, right, yeah, all that sort of stuff. I
just yeah, I just I don't.

Speaker 3 (06:55):
Friend, I could get behind were the people that were
when you stand there and you fill your mouth with
water and then you slap the person across from me
with a tortilla and see you spits the water out
of their mouth first.

Speaker 4 (07:03):
That was a good one.

Speaker 2 (07:04):
Well, slapping his time honor, that was art.

Speaker 4 (07:08):

Speaker 2 (07:09):
Yeah, oh, speaking of that sort of thing, I was
looking at Apple's Best Albums list that they came out
with it. It was still controversial because they're saying, hey, perhaps
you'd like to listen to some of these they were
on the best Albums list. And I came across the
Velvet Underground with Nico with the Warhole banana on the cover,
which reminded me of that, you know, when I first

listened to that album, because I was told if you're
a music hipster, you got to I thought it sucked,
and then I went back to it twenty years later
probably and it still sucked. And I gave it a
spin the other day and it sucks worse. It sucks.
I hate that album. It sucks. There you have it.

Speaker 1 (07:50):
And The Velvet Underground was hanging out with Andy Warhol
in the factory in New York and making weird music,
and yeah, if everything is art, nothing is art. That's
the way I feel about that thing.

Speaker 2 (08:01):
Yeah, And I don't hate everything the Velvet Underground does,
but that is definitely one of those pieces of quote
unquote art that's been fetishized to the point that maybe
it's possible I don't get it. I doubt that I
don't get it because my tastes in music are from
coast to coast.

Speaker 1 (08:17):
Yeah, it's so easy to go Emperor's New Clothes on
art and just like, well, if you don't understand it,
I can't help you, you know.

Speaker 2 (08:25):
But a guy who, on a hot summer's day in
a sweater and jeans will do the splits and ingest
canned eggs is a man who is creating art.

Speaker 1 (08:36):
If I hadn't been at least a little bit frightened.
Not that he was frightening, but there are frightening street
people in the town I live, and I didn't know
if he's one of them or not. If I had
known what he was, I would have me and my
kids would I not? About buck. I'm glad I got
to see it in person. I've read about it on
redded threads. So you're the great split man. I hope

you're not a split man imitator. I hope you're the real,
the original.

Speaker 2 (09:02):
What if I were to pour syrup over my head
while reciting the works of Yeats or you know, one
of your great poets. I mean, Nah, that's kind of messy.
It lacks the I mean because people would say immediately, oh,

he's looking for attention. Lacks the WTF factor.

Speaker 1 (09:26):
But I was gonna ride a unicycle while baiting a
fish hook? Does that seem like perhaps I could know
in a top hat or something while.

Speaker 2 (09:38):
Shouting where is my wife? Has anyone seen my wife? Now?
You got something?

Speaker 4 (09:48):
I remember on The Simpsons of Grandpa Simpsons saying how
he tried.

Speaker 1 (09:52):
To get a woman by wearing a beard of bees. Well,
I guess that's it.
