#239 (Clip Show): 50 Cents and a Frowny Face

Step on up to the bar, order a shot and a beer from the tough-as-nails lady wearing the cat sweatshirt, and get ready to embrace your rage, because this month’s clip show is all about the Big Dog. Luke is famous for his temper, so Ann and Christy are here to share some memorable TBTL times when things got … a little heated. Mostly, we try to answer the question, ‘Is Luke a jerk, or the best friend ever?’ Along the way, we break down the original Big Dog story, critique Andrew’s handling of a difficult bartender, and agree that Luke will probably never get a job with the Seattle Bureau of Tourism. Plus, Christy’s dad started an “extreme counseling” business (it involves non-contact taekwondo), and it’s kind of awesome. Here’s a handy list of what we learned:

 1) It’s probably not about you

2) When The Mummy is the voice of reason, something has gone terribly wrong

3) Don’t awaken Christy’s righteous fury unless you want your tires slashed

4) NEVER TOUCH THE BOUNCER

Live from a suburban campsite, a childhood bedroom and a pre-Fiesta (TX) home base, Bobby, Meredith and Mike (respectively) dodge the heat and tens of thrown phones while recapping a week of TBTL that included an unexpected picnic announcement, bad sports jargon (including Prince getting some *hm-hmm*) and the official launch of what appears to be the 2017 Song of Luke and Andrew’s Summer Contest.

Be sure to listen through to the end for a fresh angle on #buttholegate from Gus and Ellie, the LRB Kids! Let’s just say they took the term … literally.

#237 (look back): Too Many Mikes! w/ Mike Farnan

LA Ten (by way of White Bear Lake, Minn.) Mike Farnan is back, and joins “old” Mike (Frizzell) and the Nice Lady Christy Wise for a listen back to the time Luke thought it was a good idea to eat his weight in green room Boston Market creamed spinach and mashed potatoes before a Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me! taping. (Spoiler alert: It wasn’t.) Mike, Mike and Christy also share their own poop stories. (Or, in the case of Christy, the story of a gross friend.)

Episode #236 (Recap): 0.5 Seconds of Hang Time

Climb on board, guys – it’s time for another TBTL recap, and Mike, Ann and Meredith are driving the podcast party bus. We’d like to make a stop at the Chicken Window on our way to see the classic Freddie Prinze Jr. movie Summer Catch, but if we see a rat, we’re outta there. Over at LRB Studios, we’re lovingly cradling the shattered remains of our thrown phones as we shed a tear over the apparent disappearance of basic science education. Some doughnuts would make us feel better, but Edith ate them all, so instead you can join us on the porch for some peanuts in the shell washed down with a delicious bacteria frappe. In addition to setting up future guest speakers for the Ex-Con Con, Mike’s seriously running out of patience for airplane talk, and Ann had a mysterious medical issue she wants to talk over with Meredith. Plus, tips on how to beat someone with your junk and a discussion of the wonders of Xanax. You’re more than just a truck friend to us.

#235: (Phyllis Phave) Wet Undies and Surprise Poo

Sometimes wet underwear is not your fault. It's not always pee, OK? But sometimes it is. This week Phyllis reports live from Lopez Island, just across from Mike Frizzell's ancestral plot on Mud Bay. Mud Bay would make a serviceable euphemism for a poo pile, and speaking of euphemisms for excretory events, we hear the best TBTL-ism for peeing your pants, first uttered by Jen at Jesus Creek. Plus Luke's poo-reka moment inspires us to recount accidental poo discoveries of our own. Christy "Crap Columbus" Wise, Mike "Magellan of Mud" Frizzell and Phyllis Fletcher, the Fecal de Fuca, on this month's Phyllis Phave edition of Little Red Bandwagon
