The Patrick Warburton LASIK ad was so damn good.

This one finished strong.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it but it almost felt like Griffin did a mid-sentence course correction with "How do I get a Travis off my..." and ending up with "tree" instead of "podcast". Even as a goof, a little mean.

Me too! I'd been wondering how long it would take for him (?) to get one. And it's a pretty good one, too.

merit palmer is a lady, but yeah with that name it’s hard to tell haha. if you follow along on the MBMBAM wiki it pretty consistently takes 30ish yahoos read on the show to get a nickname, which can take a LONG time and also implies a lot of suggestions that don’t get read on air. this episode had her 33rd submission.

This was a really good episode. I too was happy for Merit! I was actually starting to think that they just didn't do the honorifics anymore but finding out that it's actually pretty consistent is delightful.

I made all my family listen to it on a road trip recently (driver picks the music) and didn't attempt to explain the LASIK thing and it was glorious.
