My Brother, My Brother And Me: MBMBaM 421: Spoonhog

We're back with a completely sequential new episode! One that doesn't violate the sanctity of the podcast time-stream. It's got just the normal amount of weed humor in it. Gonna be a good one. Suggested talking points: Bogart My Dad, Muggin' Stuffins, The Dark Knight's The Joker, Twizzler Forensics, The Office Spoon, Butterfly Claws, Teen Financial Advice

I kind of wish they hadn't even mentioned it in the show!

I can't wait to see animatics of the Joker monologue.

I'm having trouble finding a decent photo that shows it, but I am 99% certain that butterflies do have claws.

I can’t wait to tweet at all the boys about wrong they are about spoon size they’ll love it. They are wrong about spoon size

They were so wrong this week, both about the spoons (why should I do all that work of stretching out my mouth for 10% more food per bite?) and about butterflies (who do have clawed ends to their little feet). But dragonflies don't have scales.

Yeah, I will wash a small spoon rather than have to eat the huge mouthfuls of soup spoons.

Complete agreement here. I use little spoons and little forks exclusively. Anything else is very, very wrong.

What???? Small spoons are the worst! I am so confused.

PS, I found a photo of a butterfly claw and sent it in to the MBMBAM email. It's, um... yikes

I'm in a parallel universe where it is is Berenstain Bears and people like little spoons.

Minor lifehack: if your set of measuring spoons aren't handy, the little spoons are a teaspoon and the big spoons are a tablespoon.

Wait, aren't those what those spoons are called anyway?

The Joker's famous monologue, amazing how they got it word for word.

Spoons of either size are fine, but small forks are only for if you didn't get your fair share of the mac and cheese and are trying to trick yourself into making your portion look larger.
