-Refrigerator Perry's weapon was a football on a chain, not a sledgehammer.
-It's Lady Jaye, not Lady Jane. I'm sorry.
-Jean-Claude Van Damme's character in Monaco Forever is Gay Karate Man, not The Gay Guy.

Shania Twin is usually playing almost constantly at the shifty newfie bar in Brampton. The sign board that advertise her appearance is pretty sad. "Shania Twin, Karaoke and $5 pitchers".

on the topic of street "art" statues - one of my all time faves was a man who dressed as Dracula on Las Ramblas in Barcelona (saw him on another trip, without Dave). He had a sweet set up where he just laid in his coffin all day. Later, his mom would come by & bring his lunch and/or dinner. they'd sit on tiny stools next to the coffin, he in his cape and she in her housedress, and they'd catch up on some quality time. too adorable.

I think you should do a special episode just about how awesome Purple Roundy is.

I just wanted to let it be known that I have been working my way back through the podcast episodes for the sole purpose of finding out why it is necessary to clarify that Abby is her own person. And today, my friends, I finally found the answer. It's been a good day.

That Purple Roundy illustration is fantastic. Is there a way the bumper could link to a higher resolution version of it?

Another great episode

The Purple Roundy picture is amazing, but a higher resolution version? You're just being greedy.
