I didn't get much out of the Pee Wee Herman movie bit because I've never actually seen that movie, but goddamn the pizza riff was gold.

I think the fact that Pee Wee got arrested for exposing himself cinches the "here's my penis, here's my butt" nature of the Tequila dance.

i don't know if the brothers are bored, or what, but i feel like the show has been getting increasingly ramble-y and meta lately, and i truly love it. i can listen to these three guys talk about whatever, whenever, advice be damned.

Someone on reddit pointed out that over the previous few episodes they had only answered something like 7 questions total. I'm with you though, it has worked.

So I think that first question (about the horrible nightmare friend who has started saying "Mate") is from the weirdly named town I live in (Fuquay-Varina, NC). For the record, it's pronounced "fyoo-kway" not "fuck-way".

I really hope the more rambly nature of the show lately does not mean it is on its way out. I know the brothers have a shit-ton of other projects going now, but the MBMBAM mothership is my favorite podcast running right now (though Adventure Zone is a close second).

Nah, I can't see them stopping MBMBAM anytime soon. If anything, I could see Justin stepping down from Polygon considering how many side projects he has going.

Rock Steady, I had the same thought about Fuquay!

That Pee Wee Herman thing was tops. I was humming "tequila!" while I was cooking dinner and my husband walked into the kitchen and said, "dick dick butt butt?"

Yeah, if I run into anybody at Stick Boy or the Aviator who calls me "mate" I'm going to do the Invasion of the Body Snatchers scream at him.

I should also let you all know that Griffin railroaded me into listening to the Carly Rae Jepson album but I cannot in good conscience recommend it.

My 3-yo has a serious love for "Call Me Maybe" so I gave the new Jepsen a spin and ... well, the first song wasn't bad but she lost interest about as fast as I did.

I'm not sure when the flip switched, but this has become hands down my favorite podcast of all time and one that I continue to listen to the second it drops despite my recent podcast burnout. It's fast, funny, surprisingly intuitive when necessary and, most importantly, not crushed under the weight of its own sincerity/preciousness like so many other podcasts I sometimes frequent.

In other news: live show in Seattle this weekend and I. Am. PUMPED.

Tevin, how was the live show?

The bit about Pizza being illegal in Tennessee was some inspired improv, especially figuring out the "Calzone Loophole."

Re-listened to this one today. This time, I noticed that Griffin really was resisting the pizza being illegal in Tenn. bit at first, and wanted to focus more on the mechanics of having a pizza on an airplane. Al Calzone wins him over though.
