Episode 204: Bunnies Of The Apocalypse by Gregg Chamberlain

As per my goal of pimpin' the show more, here's a reminder that we put out a new episode, and you should check it out if you haven't already!

You can find it on the feed, or go to this link to listen as well. Mr. Chamberlain would love it if you did...and so would I.

The King Of Christmas

At my work, we are one of the few places still allowed to have a holiday party for the children of the employees. My wife says it could never happen where she works, because the people without kids would complain so much that they didn't get an equal amount of money spent on them too. Of course, the answer to that complaint is ALWAYS to spend less money all around, and NEVER to spend more. But I guess people like math and how we can break things down to the lowest common denominator or something.

Oh, crap! This post is supposed to be about the king of Christmas, and not people who ruin things for other people because of envy, and instead I went off on a rant. Let me get to the point.

So, they were setting up the lobby for the party, and they got out this chair that Santa sits on during the party. Only, this is not just a chair. This thing is a freaking throne. Check it out:

I don't know why, but the sight of this thing made me think of that picture of Notorious B.I.G. with his crown:

Me and Biggy don't really have that much in common. Just the one thing really. But I saw that throne, and thought of the picture, and felt compelled to try and pose like a badass on it. A Christmas badass. I'm the motherf***ing King of Christmas y'all!

Right, right. I know. I don't look like much of a badass at all. At least I tried.

The funny thing is that they have this throne in the station all year long. It's the same throne every year for the kids' party. I wonder if the big boss is ever tempted to pull it out and sit in it during meetings or something. Good thing I'm not a big boss, because I would totally do that.

Rest Assured

You can all rest assured. It's still here, and it's still safe. Completely unbroken. It made it through another year in a box in the garage in one piece.

The spirit of Christmas lives on.

Aitch Two Oh

My daughter was thirsty the other day when we were visiting the "Specialty" grocery store, and she found this on the shelf. She wanted to buy it, but I didn't think snake oil was a healthy drink.

Seriously, hydrogen infused water?

Somebody explain to me how this can possibly be a thing? Does the H in H2O not mean anything? How did they infuse the water with hydrogen? If they put extra hydrogen in water, doesn't it stop being water? What is H3O? I know that CO2 changes substantially when it becomes simply CO.

Anyway, humans don't need crap like this. We evolved to eat and drink certain stuff, and snake oil was not one of them. There just wasn't enough snakes around to be a large part of our diet.

Hanging With The Cool Kids

The other day, I got invited to hang with the cool kids and talk Star Wars Bounty Hunters on the Delusions of Grandeur Podcast.

You can check it out over at Marshal Latham's Journey Into site.

Is it a coincidence that Delusions of Grandeur is abbreviated as DoG, and they're talking about Bounty Hunters? I think not.
