Welcome to Episode 50!
Confession: I don’t understand the straw outrage. I don’t use straws. Because no one looks cool drinking out of a straw. And you don’t need a straw for fine whiskey. But… if you want to use one of those cool stainless steel reusable straws.. I say have at it. But don’t be a jerk about it. Some people don’t have them. Don’t be like that hipster you hated before it was cool.
Are we going to war, or just expecting higher gas prices? – Trump v Iran tweets
James Gunn is dropped by Marvel for ancient tweets about rape jokes. This has brought about a huge slew of people digging through other people’s work to out them for the things they’ve said in the past.

Ohhh boy, we’ll never make it anywhere with our jokes if this becomes the norm.

My favorite new memes are the “Darn those white people and their” *shuffles cards* “(insert totally sensible thing)” then it’s backed up by an article that shows what they are talking about.
Speaking of whites: Shark Week, anyone watch any of it?
