Anyone watch the Super Bowl? Whatcha think of it and the half-time show?
It was the lowest rated Super Bowl in the last 8 years. However, it still drew in large numbers of people because it’s the Super Bowl.

NY Lawmakers want to make Tide Pods look less edible. Because people are stupid and can’t be trusted to no eat detergent. http://time.com/5138085/new-york-law-tide-pods/

Also, try Horehound candy.

FISA memo was released and hoo boy, there’s some spicy stuff in there once you know the context surrounding it and what it means for the intelligence community. Dems before the release: RELEASING THE MEMO WOULD ENDANGER NATIONAL SECURITY AND THE REPUBLIC Dems after the release: It’s a nothing burger

Elon Musk had his awesomely successful rocket launch into space. The Falcon Heavy went to the asteroid belt which was a lot further than they planned. Also starman in a tesla is awesome – Don’t Panic!

  • This week I saw someone getting political online. Talking about who’s to blame and threatening to delete people from his friends list if they “tried him” I unfriended him.  I don’t need that kind of negativity.
  • Dolores O’Riordan singer of The Cranberries died last week and we didn’t talk about it.
  • Deficit Chicken didn’t last long.
  • Bad Coffee will Make you happier  – a life lesson.
  • Google has a secret police for speech. I’m pretty sure we already knew about this as a thing, but now it’s at least confirmed. The Anti-Defamation League and No Hate Speech, a European organization focused on combating intolerance, have chosen to go public with their participation in the program.

Deficit Chicken!
Britton makes a feeble attempt at explaining the debt ceiling. It will all fall down eventually. Also, stack silver. The story of the talents is about the rich getting richer and the dumb getting poorer.

Oprah and Weinstein
Pictures of Oprah and Weinstein hanging out could make her run a bit more complicated.

James Franco and Aziz Ansari 
Proving once again that Hollywood operates like a bunch of horny frat boys in college.

Twitter is Shadow Banning and Saving Everything
You know what, just don’t trust social media at all.

Destiny Pants and Bethel Tarot Cards
This is what the Christian industry has come to.

We also cover the societal problem of yoga pants.

What are kids eating Tide Pods.
Probably because they’re trying to cleanse the gene pool.

What’s with all of these challenges?
Remember when the youth pastor challenged you?

We’re getting a little tired of Winter Jam. So we skipped it this year.

Do people still do the 30 hour famine? And what about the Daniel Fast? Should corporate fasting, with all of its attention grabbing shenanigans, be something we concentrate on every January?

Another Year, Better Jokes

A new year and new voices. This week Joe and Chris joint Britton, Nick, and Ashley.

Recorded 1/5/2018

  • Merry Christmas/Happy New Year you disgusting people!
  • Christmas Gifts. What did you get?
  • Oregon Gas pumping – They can’t even right now.
  • Papa John resigns as CEO bc of NFL comments
  • XFL making a comeback?
  • Why CNN doesn’t understand Fascism….because they don’t understand Thomas the Train. http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/22/health/thomas-tank-engine-paw-patrol-fascist-cartoon-strauss/index.html
  • Neutral Gender Jesus
    A Church in Sweden is referring to Jesus as Gender Neutral. In their advertising for Christmas events a Swedish church started using a pronoun called “hen” which is a gender neutral term. ‘ “We did not want to sex the little child right away,” explains daddy Susann Senter, who explains that the decision is partly due to the Church’s equal treatment program.’
  • I resolve to not participate in “self help Christianity”
  • Christian conference season for your new year!
  • Intel Chips Security Flaw
    Apparently Intel chips in computers have had a major security flaw in them…for like the past decade or more. The latest patch that has or is coming out will fix the problem…but slow down your CPU by as much as 30%. Wtf. This includes all devices that use Intel products from computers, phones, etc. It looks like a lot of this has to do with Cloud computing… which makes me glad that I hardly use any cloud technology.

    There are two issues: One called Meltdown and one called Spectre. Meltdown only affects Intel related chips while Spectre affects everyone, ever. The only real way to fix Spectre is for chipmakers to do a recall on every chip ever and rework the architecture. There are some updates but they don’t really account for the Spectre issue. It turns out that you can’t have both speed and security.

  • Logan Paul finds a dead body in the Suicide Forest and blogs with it in the video, making jokes while right next to it.  (This might not even be worth talking about but it there’s a whole conversation around it going on right now.)

The Tax Bill passed and an honest critic would have to admit that this bill was passed in the same reckless way as the Affordable Healthcare Act.

What are your Christmas traditions?

Christmas music is awful and no one is making any good new Xmas Carols.

So many versions of Sleighride, White Christmas, I’ll be Home for Christmas, and Chestnuts roasting… most “holiday stations” play these on repeat with different artists

Lady Gaga tried in 2008/9 and made a dance track that is cancerous. It’s called Christmas Tree…it’s about her lady bits.

We Got on the Weirdest Rabbit Trail

Play

Recorded 12-12-2017, we record a few days early so we can see Star Wars: The Last Jedi on our regular recording time.  Meanwhile we get off on some wonderful rabbit trails.

Retraction: We said Danny Masterson’s charges were dropped, but according to the verge there is an investigation by the LAPD underway, but it is stalled because of scientology affiliation;

At least four women have accused Masterson of raping them in the early 2000s. Masterson has been under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department for about a year, according to the Huffington Post, but the case has stalled, apparently in large part due to Masterson’s Scientology affiliation. The Huffington Post reports that after one of Masterson’s accusers filed a police report in 2004 saying that Masterson raped her while she was “passed out,” “the Church of Scientology intervened and submitted more than 50 affidavits from Scientologists who denied the woman’s account.”

2017 Top 3 Albums for this year.

Nick’s Picks:

  • Phinehas – Dark Flag
  • Trivium – The Sin and the Sentence
  • Unleash the Archers – Apex

Ashley:

  • Nichole Nordeman- Every Mile Mattered;
  • Ed Sheerhan- Divide
  • Taylor Swift – Reputation (pretty sure these are the only albums I’ve listened to/downloaded this year)

Britton:

  • Ben Rector: Brand New
  • Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors: Souvenir
  • Flatfoot 56: Odd Boat

Post Malone claims Justin Beiber gave Hillsong $10 million and has become religiously culty. Hillsong denies it. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/hillsong-church-pastor-slams-post-malone-justin-bieber-claims-w513461

The upcoming Twitter Purge: The most important parts being these:

“Violence: You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to, threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes. We will begin enforcing this rule around affiliation with such organizations on December 18, 2017.”

“Hateful imagery and display names: You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. You also may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category. We will begin enforcing this rule on December 18, 2017.”

I also got this email from the alternative twitter called Gab, that says this. “Twitter will be judging user behavior both on and OFF of their website. Meaning if you visit another website that they don’t like or show “support” for groups they don’t like, you can get banned.”

Fill Up the Wax on the Back Side

Play

This week on the show, Britton learns that the teenage vernacular has changed and he can no longer quote Daffy Duck in youth group.

Ashley makes the boys listen to the new Taylor Swift album in exchange for watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We also find out that Nick once wrote trashy romance novels under pseudonym.

We ponder the nature of the Force is Star Wars. What is light, what is dark, what is gray. This is where we wax theological.

More TV shows are ruined by actors not keeping their hands to themselves.  Danny Masterson is no longer on The Ranch. Although allegations where investigated years ago, the stories have come back up and Netflix sent Masterson packing.

Trump moved the capital of Israel?  Not exactly. The media is stating this stuff completely wrong.

Will all the history of false allegations among these true accusations make interacting with people and thing of the past in the near future?

We saw a Christian Alexa, but didn’t realize it was a joke until later.

Do we a Christian litmus test to tell us right from wrong? Do we need a Christian alternative to everything?

Gay Cake is back in the news.  Where is the difference between religious service, political position, and public duty? Kim Davis is going to face reelection competition from a man that she refuse to give a marriage certificate.

Side Note: Singing is like talking in cursive.

Baby its cold outside has been cast as a creepy song for the last few years. Has the internet ruined this song because they didn’t understand the original context?  How does this same notion apply to the Bible?

Ashley and Nick have never seen the Christmas Story.

We also have to take time to explain the Star Wars Holiday Special.
