Released Wednesday, 15th May 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
Ever have one of those days, where you brain just fritzes out and you don’t remember what you were gonna say? That’s me today. I do have some weird news though, including some creative political ads, an ironic act of arson, and some people who are just too sensitive about stuff. Lastly, it’s time for the 3rd Annual Livestream For The Cure.

Brain Fry

Have you ever had one of those days where you just completely forget what you were supposed to be doing? That’s me today. I know I had a few things to talk about for the show this week, but for the life of me I can’t remember any of it. I should probably really start writing these things down. Then again, if I did that, then you wouldn’t get these sort of episodes. Let’s see where this goes together. Shall we?
Ignorance Was Bliss
I was on Episode 134 of Ignorance Was Bliss. Officially we talked about having Olympic medals for asshattery. Then again, this is me we’re talking about so the conversation went all over the place. Take a listen for yourself.

An “adult shop” in Dublin was forced to remove posters from their front display windows that showed women in school girl outfits similar to those from the Britney Spears video for “Oops, I Did It Again.” Complainants claimed that the images “objectified women” and had no place being visible on a public street.
*It could be worse. There could have been a display of sex toys in the window.

During a comedy show in Naples, FL, an audience member actually called police after comedian Ahmed Ahmed made a joke about the number of middle eastern people in the audience. Ahmed, who is middle eastern, asked how many other middle eastern people were in the audience, and he joked that there were enough to start a terrorist organization.
*It’s called comedy. What are you doing at a middle eastern comic’s show if you’re gonna get scared by a joke. It’s a joke. It’s a joke! IT’S A JOKE!!
