Ben's delivery of "I gave a hoot, And a holler!" in ep 4 had me rolling

Me too. The cadence and tone of the show reminds me of Mike and Tom Eat Snacks at times.

Neil Hamburger is a national treasure. I got to see him live once. He opened asking "Are there any (race) in the audience?" for a few minutes and the punchline was "Well, I heard this bar serves mixed drinks."

Honestly surprised he never came out swinging for Trump and the meme was revived in the most wretched form possible by the alt-right

His refusal to swear and stuff in Expendables makes me believe he might be one of the rare Christians who actually walks the walk. Like a Ned Flanders who used to star in action movies.

He went for Huckabee, so yeah, he's like if Ned Flanders wanted to torture gay people to death.

I like to use good faith and hope people are basically good, but that hasn't been working out for me in 2017.

I hate ads on websites because they usually interrupt what I'm reading, break the flow of the site, and sometimes clicking the X to exit the ad will instead leave the page altogether to bring me to the advertiser's page.

But on WHM, it's at least audio brought by the guys and they go out of their way to be entertaining. Spanish Flea is a brilliant touch too. I'll listen to the ad once or twice before skipping the same as in a later episode.

Plus there was that time when they had to advertise Draft Kings and you could tell they HATEd it.

I thought that too....then I re-watched it a few years ago and found myself cringing the whole time. I should have let it live in the glory that was me at 10 years old.

The monster effects and make-up are still kick rear end, though. It also completely deserves its place as a cult classic and at just over an 1 and twenty minutes, its a good movie to not really pay attention to in the background.

Still not a good movie, though :(

I rewatched it a couple years ago and it still holds up.

They really get on a roll when they're making horse jokes. Now I'm thinking I should call in a horse movie next listener request month.

I do, but it saves it in a weird format that isn't actually a gif. I'm pretty annoyed whenever I see Giphy on the whole. They seem to make it impossible to share gifs unless you actively go to their site.

I still cannot believe that the actual men who stopped the attack are playing themselves in the movie. Like I'm not sure what I should feel about that, but I know it definitely feels a bit icky.

The early Unsolved Mysteries would say they sometimes got the actual people involved in the events to recreate the scenarios. I always thought it was weird to ask someone to redo what was probably the worst moment of their lives.

What was that movie that Andrew was thinking about? Where the guy wearing the wire was sweating so much it shocked him. I know I've seen that movie but I can't quite remember which one it is. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a comedy. The scene was supposed to be pretty tragic. I remember the guy got killed by the mob. But that was in flashback to someone else, I think the FBI/CIA agent or lawyer who was forced to put someone else in the same situation again and he was worried that his new informant would share a similar fate.
