Count me as someone who also said "what???" upon hearing Justin read the description of the VP of Snacking

Why was “porkmanteau” not the title of this episode. I mean yeah dunking on Griffin’s guts is always good too but cmon.

This was definitely an episode where the brothers' frustration at Travis's tendency to just say shit was rubbing up against the fact that that shit tends to be extremely funny.

It's been a day and I'm still entertained by the phrasing of getting an extension on Halloween.

Between the wildfires and blackouts on my side of the continent and inclement weather all up in the eastern side, it does feel like Halloween in general arrived too soon to fully enjoy this year. How has it almost been a week already? I feel like I should still be loading up on cider energy instead of readying myself for the super early sundown and post Daylight Savings cold times.

Also, I had no idea there was so much Ronald McD's lore out there? But I didn't go to McDonald's much as a kid. Totally surprised to hear that Filet O'Fish is a character as well as a sandwich!

Somewhere in my mom’s house are some McDonalds plates with Big Mac trying to arrest a snowman Hamburglar. I do not remember the VP of Snacking, either.

Looking forward to Worldwide Webster updates as he gets on the Dean’s List.

Oh my goodness, I remember that burger jail.

Emma Kant is doing great with the Yahoos lately - I wonder when she'll get an honorific.

the count on the wiki is a month and a half out of date but she’s still got a ways to go, historically it takes around 30 yahoos to get an honorific, she’s probably hovering around 15ish right now.

Someone near me has a few of the old McDonalds play sets in their back yard, including the hamburger jail, and it makes me laugh every single time I see them.

I was definitely inside one of those weird head jails at least once, possibly more than once. Kids are really not that hard to entertain.

My McDonalds had the four armed murderous Grimace through at least my 5th birthday.

Wikipedia tells me that in the McDonaldland commercials, Big Mac was voiced by Ted "Lurch" Cassidy. I have no recollection of this.

More importantly, this episode gave me a phrase to use when I wish to dismiss an idea but don't care to explain why:

"Hey, what if we--"
"CAN'T PUT THAT ON A T-SHIRT."
