Do you keep haunted stuffed elephants under your stairs? Is your co-worker secretly (or openly) a huge beanie enthusiast? Is Steve angry at Jason for liking scarves so much? The answer to these questions and more is up for you to come up with, because Today, I Learned Nothing.
Unfortunately for you, Jason is a web designer in his day job and so he has some opinions on the recent redesign Adam Huber applied to Bug Martini. Also, The Eisners are once again nearly upon us, so the guys take a look at the nominees for Best Webcomic: Bird Boy, Deja Brew, Jaeger, The Middle Age, and On Beauty.
We refused to hinder the Jinder and now we’re all just bit parts in his Punjabi celebration! We also got one of the best matches of the year from two guys who exist on the fringes of the WWE Universe, but who stole the show nonetheless. Also of note this week: Gargano and Ciampa are the MVPs of the week, KO on Talking Smack was brilliant, Pete Dunne needs to learn how to carry a championship belt, someone gave Breezango guns, and why Nak ain’t strong style on the mic. Keep your wad and enjoy the show!
Boy, aren’t Soap Operas just the worst?
Crazy, never ending plotlines, cliched, insipid characters with terrible acting, and don’t even get me started with those weird filters they use on the cameras! You turn on the TV, and the very moment the screen lights up you know if you’re inadvertently watching a soap opera – they’re just that recognisable. No thank you.
But even with all those problems – when you do turn on your daytime TV, these things are everywhere! So they must have an audience, they must have fans and a large community base who’s gots to watch their stories.
But if they have fans, do they have webcomics? This week, I set out on a quest to find out where all the soap operas be at in the webcomic world.
Jason hates his body, so you get his review of Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken Chips as well as McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipes. Meanwhile, Steve thinks he found a brothel and is ready to explain the intricacies of erotic massage to his co-host. Finally, comic shops are known for a wide array of varietals in flatulence. But what do you do when the comic shop owner is the most flatulent one of all?
We all know how Steve feels about the sultry soul of Adele, so let’s relax and listen to some tunes on the old glass harmonica like we used to back in the day. Also, Tapas made a lot of people angry and confused last week with their TOS changes, so the guys give their two cents on that topic. Finally, Steve brings BFGFS to the table and Jason marvels at its cuteness while wondering if he can take another cute journal comic.
After Strowman’s injury, Raw rebuilt with a great Balor/Reigns match, Goldust finally having enough of R-Truth’s schtick, and the promise of a new number one contender for The Beast Incarnate in the near future. Meanwhile, SmackDown is ready for their Backlash, which means Nakamura will be making his in-ring debut, Breezango might finally capture gold that isn’t already on their fabulous outfits, and Tamina Snuka will almost certainly get out of having to wrestle. All that, plus a great TakeOver card to look forward to and a wonderful UK special to look back on!
Ever hear of a penguin who falls in love with a human woman? How about a cartoon representation of one? Also, bridges are terrifying to some, but traumatizing to all who have gotten their heads stuck in one. Finally, Jason’s robotic childhood was robbed of many seminal, heart-wrenching moments. Let’s make him relive them now!
Welcome back to the podcast that makes all your dreams come true, even if you want to be a magical Japanese schoolgirl! The guys are reminiscing about Multiplex and pondering its bright future, while also looking at new comic, Apricot Cookies. It’s weird, it’s funny, and it rarely takes itself seriously. Check out all of these comics and more, there’s so much to read and so little time!
We’re live on tape from the UK this week, and outside of a bobby and a Sherlock, it’s not all great. But it’s not bad, either! All this, plus: Sheasaro outsmarts the entire Raw tag division, the Miz remains hot stuff, Jason prefers his nUsos be silent, Backlash is all about Nakamura wrestling, probably, Pete Dunne is mean and super ugly, and playing board games with Braun Strowman.
