Dutch weed is not as good as it used to be.. Now those new gen potheads are all into genetically modified ultra strong stuff that makes you paranoid and silent for a whole day.

No thanks. I'll stick to home made white widow.

That ebay call was hilarious and justified.

On the Madagascar thing, is it really that crazy that someone can point out a well known / easy to distinguish African country? I'm pretty sure 75% can point out where South Africa or Egypt are as well.

I'm not sure how many of the listeners don't live in the US, but I'd imagine pretty much all of them would know it. That leaves just the more.. less aware of the world Americans to only need to get around 60% which seems perfectly doable.

He could get an ECG and a stress test that could help determine if there is damage to his heart, but that shit must be expensive for people who don't have insurance. He should probably get a blood test too to make sure everything is in balance. Keith's dad had a heart attack, so it's something to look into when there are funds available. I'm sorry, I'll limit my hippie rant to one sentence: "Health care should be available to all citizens without forcing them into bankruptcy the moment they get sick."

As far as the Madagascar poll, the numbers might be skewed by the fact that people who know where Madagascar is are more likely to vote in the poll (because they want to show that they're smart) than people who don't know where it is (because they don't want to reveal that they don't know). This could result in a situation where 75% of poll respondents know where Madagascar is, but less than 50% of listeners actually know where Madagascar is.

Oh, Bilbo. eBay still has it's own rules and etiquette. It's still not the bodega on the corner, it's still not your friend's house in Bag End, it's not Hobbiton, it's eBay. Getting upset because you want to treat it like it's something it's not is just going to give your heart troubles.

It's like leaving the Shire and expecting the rest of the world to behave how you want them to behave. "It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you might be swept off to."

It should be called the Mexican maid diet.

Is it a coincidence that spooky loves the way people interact on eBay, and he's one of the biggest internet assholes I know?

John does get a tad annoying when he goes on and on - must be a bit frustrating for hosts when trying to tell a story but he did provide me with some great laughs so definately worth having on the show.

Kyles songs were really good, like the ten commandments. Reminds me of Flight of the Conchords a bit.

And finally fuck Madagascar I didn't know where it was and don't care, I saw that documentary all the animals talk and sing catchy songs how fucking annoying would that be.
