It’s Friday and the holiday season, so we’re pretty hammered by the time the show starts. Susan returns as a guest. We talk about how great the Trailer Park Boys were at Mile One and parking boots on cars. We’ve had a big storm nearly every day this week, and nobody hates snow and snow-blowing more than Nick, so he vents his frustrations. We talk about sharing snow duties in the neighborhood, and feeling obligated to do driveways for others. Christmas is almost here and Joel wonders why the jail is decorated, and if inmates know what date it is. In the spirit of the season Joel explains why he hates decorating a tree and thinks it’s a waste of time. He then tells a story about how he was followed by an undercover security guard with a shopping cart, and then getting ID’d downtown for an “attitude check”. Somebody who is weirdly obsessed with Joel sees him downtown and then writes a tweet about it, prompting other creeps to chime in. The most popular word found in online dating profiles of people in Newfoundland is… We find out! Then we try to figure out the difference between a cottage and a cabin. It wouldn’t be complete without chiming in on the Cathy Bennett mean messages story, so we address it and explain why it is not a gender issue. Newfoundland & Labrador is unhealthy and new stats show just how bad it is! We also have a terrible drinking and driving rate, and we talk about how people do that around the bay. We finish up talking about how cool CD’s are.
It’s a busy show with lots of news and funny stories. Joel talks about being recognized in public, a guy who destroyed a bathroom downtown, and an ex-girlfriend who crapped her pants. We talk about Shaun Majumder coming under attack for a video he made, and remember how he called Joel an idiot. There’s a petition suggesting a province should leave Canada and join the U.S. With higher demand on food banks, Joel has an idea to help. Somebody wants to open a cat cafe, and Nick thinks we need a training class if pepper spray were to become legal for self-defence. We finish by laughing at how a men’s yoga class would sound and are excited for the Trailer Park Boys at Mile One next week!
When Joel released a video statement after being attacked by Social Justice Warriors, he stressed the importance of everyone – especially comedians and public figures – standing up for each other. Even if you disagree with what another person says, it’s concerning that a group of people online are able to determine the fate of somebody’s career and livelihood. We never know who could be next, so we all need to stick together.
Have you ever hitchhiked? We talk to Corey who hitchhiked all the way to St. John’s from Halifax and back again! There’s another food recall and it’s easy to guess what it is (or maybe not, since Nick couldn’t)… Joel thinks the news is trying to start a controversy over a platform that was left downtown after the Christmas parade was canceled. We examine a homemade skeet weapon and then get on the hot topic of a weed store downtown that opened and was subsequently shut down. We talk about Dannyland, and then peace out until next time.
We are really drunk for this week’s drunk news but still manage to deliver this week’s top stories like businesses shutting down, no New Years Eve fireworks for St. John’s and some fees are going up.
It’s a busy show with lots to cover! A prominent store in St. John’s is shutting down, we talk about the different New Years Eve celebrations in St. John’s this year – no NYE fireworks! We look at the crazy dangerous driving video that everybody has been watching. Taxi’s are sketchy, and sometimes you pass out on the way home. NL is poor AF now so no surprise food drive donations are dismal this year. Surprise, NL has been left off another map of Canada. An MP says “fart” in the house of commons and Elizabeth May is pissed. We watch this video but take a break in the middle to talk to interesting caller “John” who is trying to time travel. Nick hangs up on him then we finish the fart video and shut ‘er down.
Nick gets you up to date on this weeks top stories. Adult massage building for sale, abortion protestors, the Legionnaire ferry and Mundy Pond swans.
We start the show with some stories from Joel and his adventure outside of the big city to “the bay” and a cabin. Things are a lot different in smaller towns. Joel wonders if you should keep making new friends as an adult. A guy stole 170,000 litres of diesel and we critique his thievery skills. The building of a former Rub & Tug is for sale and we wonder if it can ever move past its history. Apparently, there are plenty of these services around town. It’s strange that surrogate mothers don’t get paid. Big undertaking for no money. We address an article that says cleavage isn’t cool anymore, and wrap up the show after Nick says Joel shouldn’t be wearing lip balm. Joel agrees.
Contains LOTS of explicit content. We do the inevitable and talk about Trump and how he isn’t actually literally Hitler. Someone wants a person charged for a funny sticker on their car, but Trump is going to be president now so being offended over everything is done. Joel may have offended another service employee. A manual for Sex over 50 has been published and we go a little further into detail than anybody is comfortable with. That took a long time so we peace out until next time!
