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.
Since Christmas is coming up next week, and the news has a serendipitous way of picking my show themes, this week I’m talking all about Christmas. Around Our house we don’t exactly do “Christmas.” We celebrate Yule, which is the holiday that most Christmas traditions originate from. The news brings tales of twisted stuffing, Christmas eyebrows, tiny cows and more. In place of a regular “Recommended Listening” segment, I’m serving up a list of slightly twisted holiday episodes from some of my favorite podcasts.
In recent years the SJW crowd has turned their sights on our childhoods.

Claiming that it will bring her closer to her deceased mother, a woman has announced that she intendeds to mix her mother’s ashes into the stuffing in her Christmas turkey. If she’s already cremated, does this still count as cannibalism?
