Out of the houses, which is the most blue?

The answer might not be be obvious at first.

Gravy Boat 2k

Trying to Google search did not enlighten me, surprisingly. It's a decent amount of more examples of those type of posts, a handful of people asking what the deal is with only speculation, and an FPlus link. Not any sort of Know Your Meme for it, no apparent source or anything. There is some sort of weird Neocities page that definitely looks like an old Geocities page with a handful of examples, so I guess I learned about Neocities. My best guesses for a source still would probably be either a Superjail or The Lorax movie's Once-ler fan.

It has the stink of alt-right guys going on about thigh meat and making very hurriedly mad comments about programmer socks.

I think this might be the first time someone's dyslexia has come to the fore in a reading, because it's the type of misspelling that can occur for a word that's so close, yet so far like "discrageful"

I love this podcast but it bugs the poo poo out of me when I listen to an old episode and there are great jokes that go completely unacknowledged. Not the cricket ones, just the ones that slip through the cracks of the conversation.

I want to say Doggie Boogie was in episode 94: I'm Really More of an Idea Guy, and I don't remember the James Bond one but it could have been from episode 102: I've Also Got an Idea for a Reboot of Young Guns, which does have some brainworms stuck in my head from when I listened to is years ago (specifically Da'ler$ and Juggernaut Lonely)

What you hear in the podcast vs what we hear in the Discord call is different enough that sometimes a good joke just doesn't get heard in the recording. Something good that gets talked over during the call can get noticed by whoever is editing it and it gets some space on its own in post-production.

My favorite one from the movie pitch episodes is Adam's reading of that insane movie pitch that sounded like it was written on peyote and included the phrase "dangerous like a vampire cowboy" and the way he just responded to everything with "uh huh"

Now I have to go through & relisten to everything I've heard in the past week. I know I heard a couple of good Nutshell Gulag ones in an episode the other day, but I was like 75% asleep.

Juggernaut Lonely! I'm convinced that the entire reason there hasn't been another episode of movie ideas in forever is because there's no competing with it.
