April 13, 2018 Delay Radio - Funny News and Comedy (Fast-Ish)

In this Episode, we have some interesting comedy/funny news things happening in the world, including strippers (it's not what you think), some hobos (we have some explaining to do), and flat-earthers, which is not a Marvel thing.

Honch has never talked about anything in life that has been serious. He talks about 'Bar' a company that makes automotive stripper paint. As it turns out, Honch knows how to fabricate and build stuff, and knows how to work with paint. Growing up in the body shop, he used an aerospace grade stripper - as Honch puts it, don't inhale it. Because, well, people are dying. Honch's wife calls in a bit of a panic because he has used those chemicals. Long story short, he has added to his life insurance policy. And just so everyone is clear, it's not the hot dog company. Somehow we went off into a tangent on how hot dogs are made and how the southern delicacy "Scrapple" is made. And then right back to being serious again because people are dying.

Jethrow ties in Tide pods (try saying that 30 times fast). Whoever thought that we would be getting the whitest of whites internally. Apparently they look appetizing and delicious. C'mon people, don't eat, huff and stuff. That's a serious life tip coming at you.

After going from paint stripper Tide Pods and hot dogs, Jethrow takes us to the deepest pits of the Internet (or Yahoo! Answers), where he addresses a question from the Letter Z (from Sesame Street?). As it turns out he has a friend that takes everything -- and doesn't really know what to do about it; maybe he should just burn his house down? Or maybe he should just go to someone elses house. You can also rent the Honch's basement and have all of the gamer diet you want, including but not limited to Surge, Funions, Jasta, and various gamer diet items. The D tries to describe D&D as Monolopy, but that didn't really work out that well - it's much closer to Everquest (which Honch never spent time playing that.)

After digging out of a battle of wills with D&D players, D goes on to talk about his online encounter with a Flat Eather on a Facebook thread. As it turns out, it isn't that hard to get into arguments with people online, let alone flat earthers. If you try to convince us that the world is a sheet of glass with memes or some 300 mile lake in Russia....we think there is more to it than that. In the end, D was called a 'Globetard'....by the guy.

Once he ended his encounter, D learned about Mike Hughes, who aborted a launch to get a rocket in space with the intent of proving that the Earth is flat. He builds a rocket, launches it (while on it), and aborts it early in the flight, plummeting back to earth (we think the Earth weighs several Quadrillion tons). And this wasn't his first aborted launch....it was his 3rd time - why can't we see Mt. Rushmore from our house - he still can't answer that?

After going after the Flat Earth conversation, Honch was talking about 'Science Christ', which we had no idea what was happening - what in the science? So we've decided that we're going to make a TV show called "What in the Science?". Is Bill Nye only a mechanical engineer? None of us really know, and just so you know, D is still convinced that he has a science degree..and all of the physics.

After getting out of science, we get right into 'not ricing out' an ATV. How should Hunter on Yahoo! Answers customize it? Skulls, ghost flames, and maybe customize it so it looks like a Dinosaur - from Jurassic Park. Then the guys try to create their best impression of a Raptor....which went terribly wrong and right at the same time. At the end of the day, just leave the ATV at Honch's house. And by the way, stop trying to trick people on eBay by keeping the price low and shipping price astronomical.

To cap off the episide, we do some 'would you rather' from one of our favorite books "Zobmondo". They ponder if they would rather have their house ransacked or not...
