    Fun fact, the state of Pennsylvania doesn’t have a ticket for exceeding the speed limit by 5 mph, it starts at 6 mph. Also, I believe you are pronouncing Miguel’s name wrong.

    I love that your fan, Jessica Sharp, asked you not to use pussy as a way to describe a weaker person because it’s a reference to female genitalia, but in the same sentence says it’s a dick move (male genitalia) to describe someone.
    That’s some funny suck.

    1. Brittney says:

      Agreed, quite ironic. Its just words master sucker, you’ve already said your podcast isn’t for the weak of heart, don’t censor yourself.

      I was about to make a similar comment myself so glad to see someone else was thinking something similar to what I was

    I live in a place where it is illegal to walk with ice cream in your back pocket but it’s also illegal to chop the head off of a giraffe and if you’re wondering what kind of batshit crazy place I live in its Alabama

      I’ve read the one about ice cream in your back pocket. It originated because people would do that to lure horses away toi steal them. Ridiculous!

    Alex Trebek needs his own pronunciation website…he is always over enunciating. But I’d rather hear some mispronounced words than listen to his kind of pretentiousness.
