Plethora of Perplexus: ODO 129

Released Wednesday, 26th December 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
Happy holidays to you. This week I’ve got a tale of too many “Perplexi,” an oddly large number of humorous news stories about guns, a “Jackass” who wants to trade pot for a Big Mac, and I don’t care if Paul Csomo already mentioned it, in “Recommended Listening” I’m talking about Weird With You.

Hope you had a great holiday, whatever holiday you celebrate. For us that would be Yule, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t give presents. But when you’ve got 4 boys who get jealous of everything, you have to have a strategy. For example, buying them all different versions of the same toy.
In our case that toy would be the Perplexus. If you haven’t seen one, a Perplexus is a 3 dimensional puzzle, usually within a sphere, where the goal is to move a ball from a starting point through 100+ turns and obstacles to the end without falling off the track. Just because it’s labeled ages 8 and up, this is no easy task, and once you start playing you will get sucked in to the game by sheer frustration… We bought 4. Not only did we buy 4, but we bought 4 different versions. We got the Original, the Epic, the Mini Twist, and the World’s Smallest Perplexus, which is an original that is about the size of a tennis ball. And every single one has had everybody in the house occupied since opening them up.
