ODO 108: Kinder Grads, Car Trouble, and Conspiracies
So last week was super busy. Between Kindergarten graduation, my brother in town, and other family events, I just didn’t have time to record a new episode. It was fun but busy. Aaannnd then Saturday night hit, and my weekend turned from great to crap on a dime. In the news I’ve got a 15 minute marriage, skipping work to be a god, and some very adult puppets getting in trouble with their friendlier cousins. The Jackass of the Week goes to a plastic surgeon who needs to spend some time behind bars instead of in front of a camera. Finally in Recommended Listening, it’s time to get our conspiracy on with Hysteria 51.

A man in India claims that he is unable to go to work because he is the 10th reincarnation of Vishnu, the Hindu god, and is too busy entering the fifth dimension and changing the public consciousness to go to the office. He has only been to work 16 times in 8 months.
The company that makes Sesame Street is suing the studio behind the recently unveiled “Happytime Murders” for making reference to the show in the recent trailer.

A man in Connecticut was acquitted of first degree sexual assault charges after showing his penis to the court to refute the victim’s description of her attacker. Since the victim in the case had described the appearance of her attacker’s penis in her deposition, the defendant’s lawyers felt that the best way to prove his innocence was to show that he did not match that description.

-Jackass Of The Week-
A plastic surgeon in Atlanta is facing a wave of lawsuits after it became known that she would film rap videos during her surgeries and post them to YouTube. The Dr., who was not licensed to practice medicine in Georgia, would film herself rapping and dancing over her unconscious patients, sometimes while actually cutting in to them.
Hysteria 51 is a weekly comedy “odd-cast” that takes an every-man approach to conspiracy theories, mysteries, the unusual, and the unexplained. Hosts John Goforth, Brent Hand, and Conspiracy Bot (a cranky robot bent on world domination who also happens to be the show’s head researcher) examine a different topic each week and generally come to one conclusion…the truth is out there, but you won’t find it here.
