Sorry it's come down to this, dear listeners, but we've been cops the whole time, and we've got to take you down for all the crimes you did while enjoying our podcast. We'd still love to have you over for the big cookout next weekend, though! Suggested talking points: Underpants Watch, Sneakin' Out the Bottles, Friend Arrest, Sea Pork, Quaid Confusion, Infrared Bears, An All New Original Color

This episode was just so good. I laughed a lot.

The full range of human experience in all its richness and contradictions in one silly comedy podcast

there are a lot of fanimators for MBMBAM on Youtube, and if I was one of them I would be working on the "butt meat portcullis" design posthaste

I really enjoyed how differently they all took the joke concept of 'hard soda.' Chunky Doctor Pepper, elderberry soda, and Mike's Latin Lemonade...

To me, this episode felt a bit... perfunctory. Maybe it was just because I listened to it at 150% speed? I don't usually do that but sometimes when I have a backlog of stuff to work through it's helpful, and I can see how mucking with the speed would affect my perception of the comedy. Still, they seemed to really lose steam in the latter half of the show, even the Munch Squad bit seemed undercooked.

I used to listen to podcasts sped up awhile back and I had to stop listening to podcasts altogether because it completely soured any enjoyment or interest I was getting out of them before. I actually felt like this was the first genuinely LOL funny episode in a few weeks.

This was one of the funniest episodes of the show in recent memory.

Every boy had a great moment, and there were at least three goofs that made me openly laugh out loud.

Also the "turtles never die" line had me laughing so hard in the car I almost had to pull over.

I think this is the last time I'm listening to the show while at the gym. When they started the "your friend is a cop, but also Jigsaw" bit, I laughed so hard I almost fell off the rowing machine.

I stopped listening to comedy podcasts at the gym after from laughing so hard I nearly dropped my weights on my chest. It's dangerous out there.

Best friend Jigsaw made me laugh really hard, and I've never even seen the Saw movies because I'm a big scaredy baby.
