    Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 281 - The One Where We Rehome A Quiz Or Two

    Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 281 - The One Where We Rehome A Quiz Or Two

    Welcome to another blasphemous episode of Waiting for Wrath;

    Where we talked about whatever the f**k we wanted.

    Where you might learn something... but you’ll definitely have a laugh.

    We’re still not experts and we make no apologies for our opinions — so — let’s listen to a discussion, revel in the digression and, some god forbid, have a laugh or two. Or nine. You’re quarantined, no one can hear you doing your best Joker anyway.

    Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while the gods haven't struck us down yet, they’ve only got a few more chances!

    In This Week’s Show, episode 281, we run another round of clips, hand-picked from episodes 175 to 200 for your socially distanced pleasure!

    Shea’s Life Lesson

    If you run out of toilet paper and don’t feel like sodomizing yourself with a corn cob, cutting a hole in a lawn chair and sitting over your lawn sprinklers will do the trick and encourage your neighbors to go the extra mile in distance themselves from you!

    Jenn’s Actual Lesson

    Laramie has officially got its first case of Covid-19 and it wasn’t Jenn. So at least there’s that.

    Normally we’d run a beer about here but the Covid fears have kept the bar keeps at bay for at least today so I’ll simply say I hope whatever you're drinking is exactly what you want. As for me, I’m having a maple old-fashioned with Knob Creek Kentucky Bourbon (cask strength) with whiskey barrel-aged Canadian maple syrup over ice and it’s delightful.

    For a “round table” this week I’ll say that while we weren’t able to get together to record for a variety of reasons, not all of them pandemic related, we did dig into our catalog and put together what is, I think, a pretty solid clip show. At this rate, we’ll have enough backlog for one or two more clip shows before Waiting 4 Wrath is all wrapped up. That said, we will be posting episodes of Interesting If True here shortly. We’ve got some trailers nearly ready that I hope to share soon. We’ll also have a few “concept shows” that I’ll post (free to patrons). They’re essentially recuts of some of our best long-form second halves and quizzes. We do want to use some of the stuff we’ve done for Waiting 4 Wrath recently as it was done with our new direction in mind. Our hope is that we can, very occasionally, use a remastered W4W second half as a show when we need a week off or just as bonus content. We’ll also have some propper new content and episodes of Interesting If True on this feed when they’re ready.

    Secret message to the patrons, available at http://patreon.com/w4w

    Anyway, that’s what we’ve got for updates. Enjoy the show!

    This Week’s Show

    Round Table

    First, a bit about today’s show. Because of the outbreak and various quarantine measures, we’re meeting only briefly to record a few introductory segments. We’ll be running some of our favorite bits from roughly, episodes 150 to 200-ish. Please enjoy!

    More importantly, the round table is a bit of a different animal this week — it’s for-serious announcement time!

    I’ll brief you on the details and then we’ll kind of chat about the why and our thoughts. Without further ado, it’s time to rip the band-aid off — we’re ending the show. But before anyone has time for a spit take, I want everyone to rest assured that like a bad STD, we’re not that easy to get rid of.

    We’ll be back with a new show in short order and you’ll even get the first few episodes on this feed so you can have a test listen, get the pertinent info, and switch to the new feed and new patreon account - wink wink, nudge nudge.

    We’re ending W4W because it doesn’t necessarily fit with what we want to do anymore. We started this as another entry into the “angry, dirty joke-telling, atheist rant” space and that was a lot of fun for a long while. I for one needed to get some stuff off my chest and this made for a great outlet. More importantly, we had a lot of fun, met a bunch of great people online and IRL, and managed to raise a not-insignificant amount of money for WyoAIDS. All of which I’m calling a fantastic success.

    That said, in the last year it’s become increasingly difficult to organize recordings, finding stories and doing the “homework” of the show has felt like exactly that, homework. The switch to the new format, which if we’re honest Jenn spearheaded nearly 150 episodes ago, has been a breath of fresh air. I think we’ve all enjoyed the change from rage to whimsey. From terrible people to tantalizing trivia. And most importantly, from poop jokes to… well… less and less of that.

    So with that in mind, I’m happy to announce that we’ll soon air the first episodes of Interesting, If True. This show will be a bit shorter than W4W with tighter editing, less over talk, fewer 12-year-old jokes, and a whole lot more interesting content.

    Basically, think of our second halves of late as their own show and you’ve got the idea.

    Those of you supporting the show will find that you still get additional content from IIT. And if you’ve sent us beer, fear not, we’ll be continuing that tradition as well, if a little less formally — the plan is to enjoy a beer during the opening, comment on it, and then move quickly onto the meat of the show rather than having a dedicated beer review segment.

    The final product will be a significantly lighter-hearted show that we hope will still be as fun, humorous, and yes, occasionally irreverent. But not so-much-so that you don’t want to share it on Facebook or tell your weird aunt or co-worker about it.

    And that’s really the goal: to continue to have fun, make people laugh, and this go around,

    Round Table

    The round table this week starts with iTunes reviews. One kinda s****y, and two kinda wonderful!

    To Sweet Pea Brown, sorry for all the toilet humor a few weeks back. Well, ok not sorry in the contrite sense, more in the Canadian sense. Soory it wasn’t to your liking but to be honest, when has this show ever shied away from messy jokes. For what it’s worth, we’re working on something that will be much less of that.

    To Dave and Rebel Ox, thanks for your 5-star reviews! We appreciate you doing your bit to push the 1-star reviews down the list. That really made our day!

    And speaking of legendary woes that turned out not to be glow-worms, Jenn is still pretty ill but on an upward trajectory. We’ve been a bit hesitant to dive into it but with Jenn’s permission to sate your curiosity here are some of the blanks filled in. Jenn had a terrible cold, as is her way, but unfortunately, it turned into pneumonia, or as I believe it’s called in medical circles - milk lung. Dealing with that for a few weeks eventually Jenn’s doctor gave up and drunk-texted his retirement to the hospital. Something about “damnit” and being a “Doctor, Jenn” not a miracle worker. Sadly, Jenn’s health did not improve and her new doctor found pleurisy in her left lung. For those unfamiliar, that’s when your milk lung curdles into Alveoli du mont des cats, or yee-horrible kitten-cheese air-tube as it’s known in America. She’s been in quarantine for some time but we did manage to visit last week. Sadly my ramen did not cure her. Luckily for us all the doctors are feeling positive and if all goes well she’ll be released to work and have visitors as this episode is released.

    So if you want to help in Jenn’s speedy recovery … hit up the Facebooks or Twitters and send her a message! Ha, you thought I was gonna beg for iTunes reviews didn’t you? Nope, Jenn’s board and there’s only so much Netflix to watch or bad jokes in Slack to read, so your well-wishes, meme’s, and unsolicited dick pics will go a long way toward keeping her in good spirits.

    And from there I'll simply say, that for a buck a show you’ll get more show, extra shows, and soon a sneak peek of the new thing we’ll talk about in more detail next week.

    Shea’s Life Lesson

    This week I learned that Ariana Grande is actually not a font or a size at Starbucks.

    Jenn’s Actual Lesson

    [cough] [weeze] [cough] KHAAAAAAAAAN!

    Jenn's condition continues to change. Pneumonia, pleurisy, and weight lifting neck. It's not great but she's got a new doctor and we hope is on the path to feeling better.

    We'll talk more about Jenn's situation next week but for now we'll just say that if you want to send well-wishes, I'm positive she'd greatly appreciate the distraction!

    Round Table

    Email from Dustin of Atheist Nomads regarding out talking about closed roads in Wyoming being commonplace.

    “I almost dropped out if the SDA seminary after my first semester. However, I would have had to drive across Wyoming in December to get back to Oregon from Michigan. I considered driving down to Texas, across I-10 and then up I-5 but that would have have been a really long trip, so I decided to power through another semester to avoid the Wyoming winter.”

    Listener Jon pointed out that we misused poisonous vs venomous… Damnit :(

    We know the difference, we promise, but in the heat of the moment you just never know what we’re likely to spout.

    If you bite it and die it’s poisonous. If it bites you and you die it’s venomous. If you bite it and it likes it, it’s kinky.

    As we continue to fight the plague that has taken over Wrathful studios I’ve again had to dive directly into the development of a dose of QI duplication.

    For today’s show, we’ve done the maths and the numbers don’t quite add up,

    He’s shown his work but Yeti division is surprisingly short, Shea!

    He’s statistically significant even if his “p” value doesn’t rise to the occasion, Steve!

    Starting our lengthy list at the least, it’s 0!

    Patient 0, that is. And no, I don’t mean Jenn.

    Panel, where did the term patient 0 originate?

    "Patient 0" actually never was. During the 1980's AIDS epidemic the term patient 0 was commonly understood to mean Gaetan Dugas, a man diagnosed with AIDS early in the epidemic. He would soon thereafter be propagandized by the San Francisco Chronicler as the main vector for the disease and it's rapid spread.

    Unfortunately, that was all a typo.

    The term "Patient 0" hadn't really been invented yet. Medical forms at the time often added details about patients in shorthand. In Dugas's case, he was marked as "Patient O" or a "patient outside of California." Tragically for him, at some point, the "O" was mistaken for a "0" and the label stuck. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index_case

    Incrementing away from AIDS to something that’s just about as fun, taxes! Panel, what’s a rule of taxation our listeners probably haven’t heard the first thing about?

    It turns out that 1's are far more important to your taxes than 0's. While we all might want more 0's involved... depending on the directionality of the cashflow I suppose...

    Many thanks to Steve E for providing yet another round of fabulous beers for us to review. BGJ has received them and we’ll get them into the lineup asap.

    We have a sad update to a story we’ve followed for a while now. Our favorite crazy, daredevil, flat earther Mad Mike Huges, died crash landing his steam powered rocket over California while attempting to get to 5000ft. His parachute deployed only seconds after launch and was torn away giving him no way to land safely.


    Thanks to listener and tweeter Cody for telling us, Sunday February 29th is Rare Disease day. Rare Disease Day is an observance held on the last day of February to raise awareness for rare diseases and improve access to treatment and medical representation for individuals with rare diseases and their families. NORD, National Organization for Rare Disorders has been raising awareness since 2008.

    Scary Stories of Japan’s Scorned Ladies

    Rocky and Bullwinkle "or"

    Terrifying Tales of the Typical Treatment of Women.

    Ahh Japan.

    A beautiful land filled with natural wonders and ancient traditions.

    Home to some of the world’s most amazing food, innovations, and bigotries — they’re absolutely killing it in the fields of misogyny and transphobia!

    We covered the latter some time ago, so today, let’s look at the former…

    Because Shea trolled us into telling tall tales of terrifying trickery I present to the patrons a plethora of preposterous parables — all with the same lesson: don’t be a woman, and especially, don’t be an old, unwed, woman!

    Seriously, it’s bad for everyone else’s health.

    For example, the monk Anchin.

    Our story begins with Kiyohime, a young woman who, apparently, was far more into Anchin than he was into her. Realizing that her lover was losing interest she did what any woman not yet properly diagnosed with hysteria would do: she started stalking him. Until one day while he was doing yee-oldie Japanese boat stuff, she followed him out into the river and since swimming + vagina = cursed, she turned into a f**k’n river serpent ya’ll. Because f**k it why not. Terrified by the horney swamp monster trying to m...

    Prone to telling long Tales From The Crypt, it’s Steve!

    And, unfortunately, unable to join us — but in our thoughts are:

    The delightfully distasteful, Big Gay Jim,

    And our very own patient zero, the perpetually plagued, Jenn.

    In their honor — and because I was sick and needed a quick template to follow — I present a silly and shameless, shambles of a QI shakedown.

    Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Nergal hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!

    Shea’s Life Lesson

    This week I learned that masturbating while getting high isn’t called masturblazing, weed whacking, or highjacking, it’s actually called disappointing your parents.

    Jenn’s Actual Lesson

    Aaron channeling Jenn: Nergal is a Mesopotamian god who was worshiped from Akkad to Babylon. He’s a god of sickness, often finds himself fighting John Constantine, is one of those pesky other gods mentioned in the Hebrew Bible (2 Kings, 17:30), and his name means “poopy-dick.” The More you know.

    Seriously, "dunghill cock", from the Dictionary of phrase and fable: giving the derivation, source, or origin of common phrases, allusions, and words that have a tale to tell by Ebenezer Cobham Brewer - 1900 - p268. Of course it’s an awkward yee-oldie name for a middle-eastern rooster, but whatever, my version is funnier.

    * https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/02/17/mandatory-vasectomy-alabama-proposal/4791335002/

    Alabama has widely been known as a progressive state, especially since the tolerant and accepting House Bill 314 voted in, late last year. For those who don’t know, HB314 is an Alabama statute enacted on May 15, 2019, that was set to impose a near-total ban on abortion in the state starting in November 2019, due to a federal judge the ban has been put on hold, but law makers still are fighting.

    Representative Rolanda Hollis is tired of fighting for her autonomous rights so has taken it upon herself to "neutralize" the Human Life Protection Act, HB314. Hollis has authored a bill that would require each man to undergo a vasectomy at age 50 or "after the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first." And to twist the knife men also would have to pay for the procedure themselves. Hollis explained her reasoning for the bill

    "Many have seen HB-314 as an outrageous overstep; yet, year after year the majority party continues to introduce new legislation that tries to dictate a woman's body and her reproductive rights. We should view this as the same outrageous overstep in authority," she said.

    "Just as I would turn to my doctor over my state legislator to make recommendations when deciding whether or not to have a surgery, or whether or not to take a certain type of medicine -- it is my doctor with whom I -- or any of my loved ones -- should consult when it comes to making the incredibly difficult decisions related to my personal reproductive rights," she said.

    The bill has drawn criticism from outside the state, including from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
