Another great show, and I've started listening to their guests Thomas and the bible. He was very funny on the show. Cecil if you see this get him back on!

Oh yeah, I could not stop laughing.  I'm also downloading Thomas and the Bible as we speak.

Thomas is hilarious. And yes, we will have him back on in the future. We are stacked with guests right now, but I did tell him that we should have him back on in six months to a year.

Glad you liked it.

Thanks! It's nice to get positive feedback which oftentimes outweighs the hatemail.

That is artistically offensive. Awesome!

It's fortune cookie cutter, mommy issues, hypnobabble on Bullshit.

I don't understand the meaning of that forced metaphor.

I always thought it was hypnobabylon... I think it's just a list of things you can put bullshit behind:
fortune cookie cutter bullshit
mommy issues bullshit (This one likely referring to the oft-trotted out anti-vaccine claim that mommy knows best)
hypnobabylon bullshit (because it's fun to say)  :D

New show. They discuss Rebecca.

Oh and Cecil they drink strychnine too, so they don't just dance with snakes.
