Episode 484 – Grabbin’ The Goozle
Having children dress up in costume and go door-to-door like little beggars demanding treats is kind of weird. Like several other Halloween activities, the tradition can be traced back to the Middle Ages and the rituals of Samhain. It was believed that ghosts and spirits walked the Earth on the night of Samhain, so people would dress up as spirits themselves in an effort to fool the real deal into thinking they were one and the same. This act was called “guising.” As the Catholic Church started supplanting pagan festivals with their own holidays (like All Saints’ Day), the act of guising became popular and poor children and adults would go door to door dressed as angels or spirits on Hallowmas begging for food or money in exchange for songs and prayers. This was called “souling.” The earliest known reference to the phrase “trick-or-treat” in North America is from 1927 in Alberta, Canada.   Our show is listener supported… tell EVERYONE about the wackiness!

Episode 483 – Traumatized By Meat
Legend has it that Stingy Jack invited the devil to have a drink with him, but Jack didn’t want to pay for the drink so he convinced the devil to turn himself into a coin. Instead of buying the drink, he pocked the coin and kept it close to a silver cross in his house, so the devil couldn’t take shape again. He promised to let the devil go as long as he would leave him alone for a year – and if Jack died that the devil wouldn’t claim his soul. After a year, Jack tricked the devil again to leave him alone and not claim his soul. Basically, the devil is really gullible in this story. When Jack died, God didn’t want such a conniving person in heaven, and the devil true to his word (what a good guy) would not allow him into hell. Jack was sent off into the night with only a burning coal to light his path. He placed the coal inside a carved-out turnip and has been roaming the earth ever since. People in Ireland and Scotland began creating their own creations of Jack’s lanterns out of turnips, beets and potatoes. The tradition came to the United States along with the immigrants and people began to use pumpkins, native to North America, for the lanterns instead.

Episode 397 – I Hate Painting
Guys, painting is the biggest crock of crap ever.  Why can’t they just make sheetrock come in colors?  Or make our walls plastic that can be tinted?  Or video screens that can put whatever your heart so desires up on the walls?  Why the crap do we use heavy-arse, lame, paint absorbing drywall?  Seriously, there has to be a better way.  I now understand why people put up wallpaper.
