Okay, we know we just had a non-standard 500th episode celebration, but as luck would have it, THIS episode also marks 10 years of us in the podcastin' business. So, yes, Justin sings the song again. (Also, we've got new art, courtesy of the very talented Sarah McKay!)Suggested talking points: ZOLO Memories, Feline Sex Den, American Hero Horn, Play Along At Home (Sorry),Teleconference Mirror World, Healing and Growth Squad

"Not sure if I'm a fan of this new cover art."

Brothers: "And if you don't like the new art, we're selling a protest shirt! The guy who drew the old logo gets a cut."

You absolute genius psychopaths. Nice.

This was the weird American Exceptionalism/Wheel of Time crossover I never knew I needed.

I haven't listened yet but I'm so weirded out by the new art, it makes no sense to dump something iconic and unique for amateurish and practically invisible in terms of how boring, ugly, and conventional.

The protest t shirt completely took the sting out of the change in the logo. It made me feel cared for: they get me and my needs and apparently bleep's too.

The plate is pretty amazing, though.

Was this iteration of Play Along at Home what Travis has been building to? Because if so, good work: Griffin's indignant fury over Justin's lack of Pokemon knowledge had me dying. If Travis hadn't flubbed the Disneyland/world difference it would have been perfect.

This episode was so funny I was laughing so hard.
Did anyone catch Travis's under the radar joke when Justin said "Ring ring" and Travis was like "Banana phone". I loved that.
"Keep that in mind as you dance for them"
I loved the whole haunted mirror thing.
I laughed more at this than I laughed at anything in like a year.
I liked the Liz Gilbert segment too, I actually think she would be good a little more frequently.

Oh man yes I looooooved that Play Along at Home seemed to actually have some point this week. I absolutely want more of Travis asking Justin questions that are trivial to Griffin but that Justin can't answer. Give me more of this chaotic anti-comedy evil.

Apparently the question in the episode title was borrowed from an old Onion video clip:

Should Obama Blow The Silver Horn The Founding Fathers Left In Case The Country Ever Needed Them?
