-John F. Kennedy Airport in New York had a monumental security breakdown as passengers walked straight through an unmanned TSA checkpoint. What do you do if you're one of those passengers? Do you tell an airport policeman about it, or do you just go on ahead and board your plane?
-Pat has a motto. How did he get it? He got it from the 1970's hit song "Afternoon Delight". This begs the question, what exactly does this song refer to? Here's a hint: Jeffy did not know that it referred to a daytime sexual encounter...
-Pat and Stu praise the work of an MSNBC reporter (yes, you read that right). Reporter Katy Tur was discussing relations with Russia with Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) when he brought up a discussion Barack Obama had with Vladimir Putin in 2012. Tur immediately ended the interview after saying "I don't know what you're referring to." Was her response appropriate? What about her follow up, in which she acknowledged the 2012 meeting and explained herself?
-Nestle. Do they hate America, or are they smart business people? It's the latter. The food giant announced that they will be moving their American headquarters out of California due to skyrocketing costs of living and an "anti-corporate" culture. The guys examine the situation in California and contrast a pair of hit HGTV shows.
-It's James K. Polk Tuesday! So we're here to talk about that man's urinary tract infections! No, really...
-If robots do all the work in the future, they might need to start paying taxes. Bill Gates suggests that, since the government needs money to operate, the income tax might get passed on to the machines. Pat and Stu are skeptical.
-In the throwaway segment of the show (a.k.a. "Jeffy Time"), the large co-host describes an incident in which over 100 headstones at a Jewish cemetery in Missouri were vandalized and how it is somehow difficult to call this incident a hate crime.
-Venezuela has reached a point where over 90 percent of its citizens have lost an average of about 20 pounds due to food shortages and soaring prices. As if we needed any more proof that socialism is bad.
-Why do we allow grocery stores to charge us a ton of money for pre-sliced produce? We save a minute of labor, yet pay several dollars more for an already-prepared tub of bananas and strawberries. Why do we keep doing this?
-Surveillance footage of the exact moment that Kim Jong Nam (the half-brother of the supreme leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un)was poisoned at an airport in Malaysia has been released. The man who was supposed to have become supreme leader of the isolated nation was approached by two women who appeared to administer a toxin either to his neck or his nostrils.
-The guys dissect the trailer for a new horror movie with racial overtones: "Get Out". They are intrigued, to say the least.
-Glenn Beck joins the program with 'The Vault', in which he has another discussion with historian David Barton in regards to a group of African-Americans who have been forgotten by the history books. Tune in to learn how the Hoosier State (Indiana) really got its nickname as well as how a slave girl became a poet whose greatness was recognized by none other than George Washington.
-A guy is eating a picture of actor Jason Segel every day until the celebrity does the same for him. What does he possibly have to gain from this bizarre stunt aside from the attention of Pat and Stu?
-Alcoholic Sprite (a.k.a. "Zima") has made its triumphant return! Stu tells the story, but fails to get Pat enthused about it.
-The guys eat Cinnamon Bun Oreo's in the latest edition of SPOONS! Meanwhile, Jeffy eats a rather large picture of a young...Pat Gray?!!!!!
