Maybe. But Norm was talking about Hollywood celebrities anyway. It's not clear if "light years" refers to before or after those toxic-waste, "curly fry" light bulbs.

I believe so, to be honest I wasn't exactly sure. It was definitely right before the new year, though.

As to Algeron Sydney is Dead, I am always a fan of the overly-cynical, not taken to heart of course. We disagree here, but that's alright. There's still one little reason we should all unite...

I also liked when Norm was being interviewed by Abigail Hilton and Bryan Lincoln of the Fullcast Podcast, in reference to the necessity of sound effects he said something along the lines of, "Sometimes, you just don't have a goat." I got a kick out of it

"CANCER"
According to my brother he's actually recited a good part of that Breast cancer awareness month monologue in his class. Never heard how it ended.

Connor Choadsworth's tweeted the other day: "Why are our tax dollars being wasted on signs that tell deer where to cross the road??"
I lost it when I read that.

I'm loving the Drabblecast, especially the intros and outros. Crakced up this week with "I'm just looking for a girl without pepper spray. I'm like, crazy allergic to that stuff or something."

Yeah, but Norm's missing out. If you don't have: copious tears, inflamed sinuses, and trouble breathing, then it's not a "serious" relationship. (Plus you've got to have years of torment to makes those few moments of pleasure stand out.)

Anywho, welcome aboard, Bamtracy2! (We'll politely refrain from asking what horror overtook Bamtracy1. :wink: )

The Before Sliced Bread riff in this week's intro was truly inspired.

"We, the human race, the greatest thing since like, way way before sliced bread. When men cubed their bread, or sold it in frisbee like discs to be tossed back and forth at festivals. Before native americans showed the early settlers at Plymouth how to properly tube their bread. Before the elegant and ostentatious "bread cone" came to be symbolically identified with the bourgeois French ruling class. Before bread was smoked by the Chinese or spun into soggy dollops by the early Etruscans. Before bread was just a 2 dimensional concept that people could do nothing but draw on crusty parchment and dream about... that's how great we are."

Also,
"I adopted a highway once, because I can't have a biological highway, because I'm, you know, a dude."

And I can't remember if it was on Drabblecast or an Escapepod intro, but
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Because inside a dog it's too dark."

More hilarity from Connor Choadsworth's twitter:

"If you really want her to stop complaining about the toilet seat being up, pee with it down a few times."

Was catching up on some episodes I missed from a year or so ago and ran across this one:

"You ever flush someone else's urinal for them in the bathroom? Of course you haven't. Chivalry's all but goddamned dead nowadays."

Something about the absolute truth of it mixed with the utter absurdity just gave me the warm fuzzies all the way down to my pinkie toes.
