You're gonna have some questions after the new segment in today's episode. Only one man has the answers. His name is Travis, and also when we said he has the answers, that's actually not gonna be true a lot of the time. Suggested talking points: Laughter and Love Challenge, Cole Slaw Juice, Brutalist Cup Design, Pizza Box Repair, Travis Takes a Big Swing at a New Bit, RIP Nut, Sky Pipes

"Play Along at Home" got me real good.

I feel like the sink is leaking because of a loose connection between the sink and the drainpipe, and the folded pizza box is propping up the drain pipe so it makes a tighter connection between itself and the bottom of the sink.

There is more vinegar in cole slaw than you would expect.

Depends on the slaw. Some have pretty much no vinegar, others have no mayo.

I'm with Travis on the slaw juice, though. Asker should have put a trivial price on it the first time (like, a buck for however much was left in the pan), which would've given them better standing for negotiating a price on slaw juice (with or without bits) on successive visits. Although they could've always fallen back on the ol' "Management says I can't give anything here away for free, so how about a buck and a half for a pint of slaw juice with a few random bits of cabbage in it?"

Or they could say that someone has already reserved the slaw juice and ask for a reservation fee to get in on the next batch, then make some extra soupy slaw for next time.

If you wanted to pass legislation to ban the free distribution of deli leftovers, you could call it Cole's Law.

I suspected that the pizza box person mistyped and meant that the BOX was on top of the SINK.

I really like the mental image of Griffin at the mall with all his potpourri.

I very much enjoyed Griffin insisting that “play along at home” was terrible, no-good, unfunny, while at the same time Justin can not breathe from laughing so hard. My very favourite foods are the ones that would be impossible to explain why you are laughing at them !

The best new bit for me is the chorus from Griffin and Travis when Justin opens a can of something, and then Justin's wheezy, sheepish laughter that he's been caught again.
