    #75 – Priscilla, Queen of the Coalmine Bathroom

    Last week, the guys visited with some of the world's stupidest criminals; this week, they'll teach you how to become one! Of course, to be a stupid criminal, first you need a stupid law to break. That's why this week's episode is a deep dive into some of the weirdest laws still on the books, from how to properly handle a frog who died in a jumping contest, to exactly how much toilet paper you need to have on hand to operate a coal mine. Please enjoy responsibly.

    #74 – Nothing Says “I Love You” Like Stealing a Penguin

    We all make mistakes, and we can all be a little stupid sometimes. But when both of those things are true at the same time, well that, friends, is when magic happens. This week the guys stumble through the escapades of some of the world's most idiotic criminals, from a pair of love-struck waterfowl thieves to the worst Elvis impersonation imaginable. Enjoy laughing at the blunders of these master criminals, but remember: in no way is this a comprehensive list. This episode features scads of dunderheaded crooks, but does not include the many morons we have elected to public office.

    #73 – Gimme That Sticky Stuff

    Weeeeeeeeeeeee're Back! 2020 has been a tough one for all of us, and with things going as crazy as they are, we just couldn't stand back and stand by. These boys are too proud for that. #ProudBoys.



    And so we're back, with an episode that has nothing to do with the world today. Yes, we are fully embracing your escapist desires, and beckoning you to join us in the wacky past. This week, the guys ooze down into a sticky situation, reveling in the lip-smacking, viscous gooeyness of the Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist! You'll want to lick up every last drop of this episode, let it run down your face, dribbling into every pore as you slurp and beg for more. And only then will the Mounties come. It's possible we've been inside too long.

    #72 – Beautiful Leather We’re Having Today

    Ah, San Francisco! Home to picturesque city scenes, quaint cable cars, and down-and-dirty f*****g in the streets. This week, the guys lube up and wade into the gritty world of Folsom Street Fair, a sex-positive, leather-positive, alternative lifestyle-positive street fair held yearly in San Francisco and branching out to other cities across the world. Do you consent to listening this week?

    #71 – The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Maul

    Mary was an elephant



    Back in a circus show.



    And everywhere that Mary went,



    Mayhem was sure to go.



     



    It followed her to Tennessee,



    The place she met her end.



    And all because, unwitting, she



    Pancaked her untrained friend.

Love,love, love!!!

I discovered these guys via a rather circuitous route, first an audible romance novel, then a rom/com and finally this very podcast. Jason and Kevin are hilarious and I am so happy they are back! Talk about a bright spot in 2020.

Please Do A Podcast Every Day!

Seriously, I need the laughs! You two get funnier and your podcast gets tighter every episode. Becuase I am old (for real Kevin, not Jason's version of 'old') many of the topics are things I am familiar with or remember vaguely from the news. But you guys are full of details that I never new. It is amazing how absurd humans are, right? I can tell you really like each other and that makes the whole thing even better!
