    WTBI Episode 47: Boof Fabrimation®

    This episode was a weird one, y'all. Kind of a lot of ephemeral, existential dread, but it turned out fine.
    Mostly.
    Kelsey dreams up a familiar yet LEGALLY DISTINCT animation company, John invents a horrifyingly convenient household appliance, Jarrett creates a discount airline that pretty much markets itself, and Mark finds out that he's one kid handshake away from certain death.
    Also in this Episode: Joyce Broadcast Realizations, Jail Wing, Effect Slip, March Sadness, and Corts, by Thonk.

    Episode 41: A Million Spiders Together Voltron-Style ... with Knives for Hands

    Is this episode late? Yes. But listen, it’s not my fault, I had a bit of a boy in the walls situation. A very strange haunting, with lots of Cheeto dust and Mountain Dew.
    ANYWAYS in this episode, John invents a new Hot Pocket, Jarrett figures out where his friends are, Kelsey posits mooning as the newest form of expression, and Mark solves a common city problem in the most terrifying way.
    Also in this episode: 3D Etch-a-Sketch, a ~spoopy~ ghost problem, a translator to understand THE YOUTHS, a convenient way to tell Brenda you got beef with her taking your shorts, a panic-obliterating gum jabbar, and a halloween-only streaming service.
