"Mongolia Horse Trek - Explore Mongolia's Altai Mountains"

That's a contextual banner advertisement I think we can all be proud of.

AWESOME Idea Bo!

Actually, can you whip up some mini Choadsworthian travel posters? Like how Disney dressed up Animal Kingdom? But weirder? Perhaps a concert tour poster for the Douchbaaga?

Oh but it's not my idea - it was AdSense. At least on my screen at this moment, and the moment I posted that comment, there was a link advertising that very thing. One person clicks it and we can promote Norm's writing as a boon for Mongolian tourism.

I can see it now. A Strange Listener field trip to China and some really confused Mongolians...

This is absolutely hilarious. I started crying at the Oh Holy Night. The combination of the funny story and Connor's spot-on reading is awesome.

Everything about this was great - I'm not even worthy to say anything other than that. I can just compare it to Monty Python, Venture Brothers on cleverness and wit.

Maybe will we ever see a sequel to this adventure? Perhaps we have Connor lead us through the next epic to search for the giant squid.

Can't stop giggling at Bono calling himself the "Kwitsatz Douchebag" . Oh that was so good, and I like the Dune reference.

I'm not really sure why, but I couldn't really get into this one. In general I like hearing about cryptozoology, and I like funny stories, but to me this one just didn't make me laugh and since it didn't make me laugh it just seemed soooo looong. I suspect that, as with "Awesome Dinosaurs" I will be pretty much the only one who didn't appreciate it.

I dub thee "the new Mr. Tweedy". Of course, I think even Tweedy liked this one. ;-)

I was looking for a post of yours to see if you really did like the MDW stuff or not, but I couldn't so I made it up. I figure, this place is all about fiction, right?

I don't know if this is flattering or insulting, but I just re-listened to this episode and my dog came over and stared in rapt attention at the laptop while doing tilty-heads for almost the entire duration of "Mongolian Deathworm (Just Another Lonely Night)". Normally he has some attention problems.

So I hope he wasn't getting any weird subliminal messages from you people.

So, I've been watching "Lost Tapes" lately and I just saw the Death Worm episode. I thought this was something made up whole cloth, not a real animal! WHEN DO WE LAUNCH OUR EXPEDITION???

Are you implying that the hard-edged research Dr. Choadsworth engages in is somehow apocryphal?
