This leads to a quick discussion about the residual debris, left over from the Rainbow Gathering, which currently litters Helena’s streets.The guys look into what it takes to write grant applications in order to research why sneezes smell terrible…and how that might lead to a cure for Parkinson’s.Word of the Day!The rest of the episode is devoted to the topic of Batman versus Superman, and reviewing the new Superman epic, ‘Man of Steel’.

EPISODE 73: THE SPECIAL GROSS EPISODE

2013-06-20_whgl_06_16_13The guys start with a light discussion on the new Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel’. Dub brings in some of The Most Offensive World Records, including: Most Semen Swallowed, Longest Pubes, and Most Cavernous Crotch. This segues into a quick tangent about internet videos that make you feel bad: mostly spider bites and R. Bud Dwyer’s suicide video. One gross turn deserves another when Matt goes over an article about an Ohio woman who married her own father. This is probably the grossest episode, so don’t listen to it at work. Or do. It’s your job, so whatever.
