Hello! We've safely returned from the concluding show of the Become the Monster tour. We are weary, but we also didn't want to put up another live episode, so we like ... just recorded a new one. It's wild, we think. It was all a blur. Comin' in hot! Suggested talking points: Magic Al the Fleshmancer, Working Less, Two-Timing Dog, Day One Costume, Flamin' Ice Cream, Nude Rider, Intermediary Brothers

I would try flaming hot cheetos on froyo. On a dare, anyway. I can't feel too het up about the purity of junk food interfering with the purity of some other junk food. But the whole time I would be thinking: Why did I pay a premium for somebody to crack open a $0.59 bag of cheetos over my froyo?

All I want is for Justin to bring back “that’s a Christmas to me” because that bit was so great last year!! It’s nearly Christmas, it’s time!

The naked motorcycle rider pondering had me cracking up while lifting weights at the gym, which was not good. But worth it.

It's very important to acknowledge one's flaws. Which is why I'm willing to admit that I think flaming hot Cheetos on dark chocolate froyo would probably be pretty good.

Think about it. Spicy chocolate is a thing. It's a very good thing! And the Cheetos would be crunchy, which would work well with the smooth, cool froyo.

I have a very strong feeling it'll be coming back soon. ;)

I never really thought about it before but doing this particular show several times a week, which they probably did a lot this year with all the touring, is probably harder than it looks.

Yeah. Being funny occasionally is pretty easy for most people. Being funny on demand is a challenge for almost everybody.

Not just being funny on demand, but being improvisationally funny on demand. Most comics tour with a well-rehearsed set of jokes, but apart from maybe a little warning what questions they will get asked I don't think they have anything planned ahead of time. It's a huge achievement that they can so consistently turn out an hour of comedy a week plus all the other podcasts and tours and events they do.
