I think there should be a wrap up of puzzle wins for Ole here!  It would show the rogues getting progressively less congratulatory and more surly....

I can't remember the context or episode, but when Rebecca told Bob they'd "take away his nerb badge," I did one of those classic spit takes with my Cherry Coke Zero.

episode #121 about 1:25 min. It was when Steve told Bob to watch Judgment Day online, Bob complained ahout the small monitor and Steve told him to just hook up his computer to the TV.

Thanks a lot.  I just spit my Coke again.

Episode 89, during the third e-mail, Rebecca gets mad about the guys making up words and it just dissolves from there.

Favourite Guest: Bill Nye

Funniest Moment: Episode 89 with the making up of the words.
  Evan: It's a perfectly cromulent word (Simpson's quote)

Best Zing: Perry to Bob "You do the science we'll do the jokes"
followed closely by Rebecca saying that Bob should take the next logical step and put the turducken in a pig... oh, I guess you are.

Funniest segments were the utility belt discussion and the martial arts super power discussions.

i still think the funniest comment was Perry vowing to move to Iran and raise birds if there is an ether.

Funniest moment: In Episode 89, when discussing the Peloop, Steven says, "It does say if it doesn't work you may want to add a little lubrication and then take it off and put it back on multiple times."

That had me laughing so hard I started crying. I listened to that episode again recently with my wife (the first time she had listened to an episode) and had forgotten about that segment. When Steven said that line, my wife and I were rolling. Possibly the funniest line ever in the podcast.

Should we in some way recognize that IRONMAN left the message boards this year?

along with Rebecca's response. It had me laughing and shaking my head at the same time. Yeah, it hit a little too close to home there...

Funniest segments:  The discussion about the martial arts challenge and the guy who chopped his own arm and then the update the following week.  Both had me laughing out loud on the expressway hoping I wouldn't cause an accident.

Best guests:  Bill Nye and Greydon Square

Most unacceptable incident: Bob missing 3 (or was is 4?) podcasts in a row.  Forgivable, but let's not let it happen again, mister!

Overall an EXCELLENT year.  And I realized that I am an SGU junkie.  I used to save it until Wednesday and/or Friday on the days I have to drive quite a bit for work.  Then it got to be Tuesdays, then Mondays.  Now I don't make it past Saturday.  Damn you Rogues!

I think you should interview the Norwegian asshole who keeps winning those puzzles.
