Whoo. That's what I call a cold open. Poor dude, I hear the second kid is the hardest. God bless him for being so up-front about it!

in my estimation this episode included THREE instant classic bits (justin's vasectomy, riddles.com, and minor key stacey's mom). the brothers are on fire lately.

Are they talking about the grocery store Raleys? I didn’t know it was national and also I pronounce it “Ray-lees”.

My new favorite drinking game is them messing up an ad and talking about not getting paid for it.

I really liked how they effortlessly but meticulously avoided gendering Tom in the moneyzone.

Oh my god I really loved the Stacy’s Mom cover.

This was one of my all-time favorite episodes.

Re: Rally's, I think they're talking about the fast food burger place.

This was a really weird episode and I loved it. As someone who will be doing what Justin is doing before too long I appreciate he is blazing a trail so I know what to expect. Hilarious and informative.

Also there were so many divergences and weird digressions here it was glorious. But the opening vasectomy bit was just So Much but so very funny. I haven't laughed that hard In a good long time.

Can they do another podcast where they rate online riddles? Because I could go for that all day long.

Oh wow. Getting a vasectomy sounds FUN. I mean, it was great for me anyway.

Jesse talked about his vasectomy in graphic detail on JJGO a few months ago. It gets a lot more fun, apparently lol.

I am so pleased to know that I'm not the only person alive who knows that Fountains of Wayne put out literally any songs that aren't Stacy's Mom, but oh my god that minor key version was so, so painful.

When I got my vasectomy I was extremely dosed up on Valium and it was pretty chill. Getting the gas is a big waste of money in my opinion. I was also the driver for my brother's vasectomy and I don't know if he's a cheap date or what because he was EXTREMELY loopy, we stopped by Taco Bell afterwards and he swears his first memory after the procedure is finding himself covered in taco in his recliner at home.

I'd characterize the amount of discomfort I felt as having my scrotum pinched pretty hard, so what Justin was subjected to was spot on. Also, I can't imagine needing a jock strap?! Tighty whiteys were more than sufficient.

Also, DJ Cummerbund made his own attempt at Minor Key Stacy's Mom a couple years ago. Honestly, while their video is certainly more well-produced I can't say it beats Justin playing it essentially live and impromptu over Skype.

I don't know what you're all talking about, that minor key version of Stacy's Mom was great. It sounded like the beginnings of a Nick Cave murder ballad, I loved it.

Good Mythical Morning made an episode about their vasectomies, if that's your thing.

I was laughing on the treadmill during Stacy's Mom, and I don't even know the original.

the riddles dot com riddles made me laugh so hard while walking home that my muscles got weak and I nearly fell down a couple times. they said riddles were the new advice in jest, but I believe it in earnest
