We're currently sailing the high seas, searching for adventure on that big blue horizon. So, while we do that, here's a live show we recently did in Cincinnati. (Griffin's doing fine, by the way. You'll understand why you might want that update a few minutes into the episode.)
So, before setting any expectations based on the title of the episode, know this: Ten years later, our bodies respond to spaghetti-loading SUPER differently. We all recorded this one together, and mostly spent it talking to our various family members, but also there are two impromptu musical numbers and a fierce competition of athletic prowess, so, yeah. Thank you all so much for sharing this past decade with us. You've changed our lives irrevocably, and there's no way we'll be able to repay that kindness in our lifetimes, so instead, we just ate a bunch of pasta and recorded it for you.

You probably read about it in the newspapers.

In today's episode, we stumble upon a new motto, a new personal mantra to guide us into the new Roarin' 20s — but, unfortunately, it has a cuss in it.

We bumped the Grand Ole Opry from the Ryman lineup to present our own twisted, skewed comedy to the fine folks of Nashville, Tennessee.
