Allergies, Keyboard Cats, and Other Unbelievably Stupid Things: ODO 144
Back in true form. I’m all over the place this week. I go from allergy meds to my cat coffee-ing my keyboard. The news brings a lot of porn, a big waste of money, and the worst penis enlargement idea ever. And in Recommended Listening it’s the now 5 time featured John Bukenas and his “Unbelievably Stupid Podcast.”
I Have Allergies
I’ve always lived with a constant level of congestion. I never thought anything of it. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve started getting more grass and pollen type allergies that I never had before. So, at my wife’s suggestion, I started taking Zyrtec. I am now able to breathe in a way I never realize that I never have before.
Cat Killed My Keyboard
As I’m recording and writing this today, I am on a backup keyboard for my computer. This is because yesterday my wife’s cat decided he wanted to practice his magic tricks and yanked the tablecloth out from under my coffee. More accurately, he dug his nails into the non-skid shelf liner that I put on my desk and pulled. That, of course, tipped over my coffee, dumping it all over my keyboard, leaving me with a very sticky very dead keyboard.
BS From The NEws
A Michigan man is suing his parents for $86,000 after they threw away his pornography collection. The man moved in with his parents after a divorce, and when time came for him to move out, he found that all of his porn was missing. His parents admitted to destroying it all. The man claims his collection was worth $29,000.
I’m not pointing any fingers, but did the $30K porn collection have anything to do with the divorce?
Because why not, people in China are actually paying others to have enjoy their favorite foods on their behalf. Essentially, you pay somebody to go and eat instead of you, and then they send back video proof of it.
I’m sorry, but that’s not how eating works, or enjoying, or anything.
Jackass of The Week
Men in Papua New Guinea have been warned to stop injecting cooking oil into their penises to make them bigger. Although it will apparently make them appear larger for a short time, doctors warn that soon the oil can lead to ulcers that will eventually burst. In many cases, it is necessary to have surgery to repair the damage.
What is it with people injecting weird stuff into their bodies? No! Just no! Stop it! Especially with your penis. Put the needles down.
We are a hangout podcast that talks about the growing stupidity in the world.
It seems everything in the world is getting smarter except people.
Warning: This show is not for the easily offended.
Born from the ashes of the “Brand X Podcast,” and in the same feed no less, the “Unbelievably Stupid, Podcast” carries on the theme of calling out all of the idiocy in the world with a snark that can only come from 2 old white guys. But unlike “Brand X,” this time they’ve wrench in the old white guys dynamic. There’s a woman on board this time, and a liberal one at that. Tara is able to keep John and his cousin “The Jimmy” on their toes as she provides a counter perspective to much of the angry old man ranting. But she’s not just there to argue, Tara can rail against stupidity with the best of them.
If you appreciate an idiot being called an idiot, and come on, you’re following me after all, you should check out “Unbelievably Stupid.” And whatever you do, don’t end up in one of their stories.
