Topic: What Annoys You?

 

 

 

  • Nabbit needs some retail relief from the world of MSRP. He’s had enough of people jacking up prices to some unreasonable number and then saying that they have it for 50% off. Plus he has issues with the insane amount of hoops you have to jump through and advanced mathematics you have to plot out to actually get a deal.

 

 

Game: “Drink It” or “Sink It” Challenge:

The Hot Spring Sipper

Luke dredged this one up from a 1930’a bartenders guide. The panel didn’t hate it, although Nabbit and Major Monocle are not big fans of champagne. There was a brief moment of tension when Luke was opening the bottle (with a satisfying pop) near the panel. Oktober was on board with this one and wanted more. So, as always we listed the recipe on the website (the post right before this one) so you can try it and draw your own conclusions.

Topic: Logos/Mascots/Advertising Symbols

 

 

  • Oktober talks about how no matter how creatively artistic your logo is, most people don’t care. The two most important things are, according to the panel, is that it is consistent and you can read it.

 

 

 

  • The subject of redesigning logos came up and that lead down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole that is Wendy’s. Please adjust your tinfoil hats appropriately.

 

  • Nabbit and Major Monocle about the power of logos when it comes to kids toys. Nabbit’s son has a toy vehicle with the Yamaha logo…Major Monocle has the real thing on his motorcycle. Major Monocle spent a lot more money to get his.

 

Game: “Killer Fruits”

This game gives the panel a chance to stretch their mental muscles. Each panelists chooses a fruit and describes how they become a serial killer. Who are their victims? What is their M.O.? What is their backstory? How are they brought to justice?… or as Nabbit says “Juice”-tice….seriously we tried to make it a thing.

This one has Nabbit making the life altering choice of romping with Puppies or Porpoises…and as for his recommendation, it’s time to learn, be entertained (and possibly fall into a deep depression about the real state of the world) with Adam Ruins Everything.

  • Oktober also makes reference to the video of dogs going crazy over the LAw and Order Intro,   Law and Order Dogs.

 

 

 

 

Game: Drink It or Sink It Challenge: The Bitch on Wheels

 

A splash of this, a splash of that and put it in a shot glass, simple and easy. Oktober tries to break down the flavors (to varying degrees of success) and Major Monocle downs it with great joy. Major Monocle declares his undying love for Jagermeister (even though he gets pretty handsy). The panel is surprised that there’s Jagermeister in it because the color is so light. Nabbit compares the color to a beer. If you want to have a good time the recipe is the entry right before this one.

Topic: What is the Smartest Animal?

 

 

 

  • Dolphins come up as a good contender for “Smartest Animal.” With big brains and adaptations which make them extremely well suited to their environment, they have time for leisure and entertainment…. like pissing off sharks and playing with octopi.

 

 

 

 

  • After a particularly goofy Dolphin laugh, Major Monocle starts dropping SpongeBob “factoids” on the panel.
