  1. That’s gotta be a Simpsons reference in the title of this episode, in addition to the one in Scott’s comment. I totally was thinking “Simpsons” when I was listening to that part, too!

    Thank you for the Hyper Nonsense tribute. All the reasons will be revealed in the next episode, which we haven’t recorded yet as I type this comment here.

    I am amused by the “oops” you did by pressing the wrong buttons for the train announcements. The Pac Man story made me smile, and it was nice to hear the update about the 50 job guy.

  2. I’m sure I would feel differently about the train-station announcements if I could hear them in context of place. But just hearing them as disembodied sounds, they make no sense to me (and why would they?).

    and I hate to give the Balloon Boy story any more traction, but it has massive Peanut written all over it.
