We start the show with an update on the situation that arose last week and why Jill never heard from the guy who sent her a drink. Mardi Gras was extremely rainy, Charizard won the best costume and $5000 prize. We chat about costumes, drinking downtown, and what’s with people who get drunk and try to start fights? Why can’t we just drink and have a good time? Some stories come up, including Nick being confronted on a date by a jealous ex-boyfriend. Audiences at Ice Caps games are dwindling as they wind down their time here, and we quickly chat about a secret way Nick would get free tickets. Chat about the province’s budget, job cuts, and students wanting free tuition. More school buses taken off the road for not being safe. We take a look at the ‘Come From Away’ musical about 9/11. It’s important to many people, but we can’t get past the fact that it’s a musical. Joel tries to chat about the U.S. election before ending but Nick isn’t having it.
Jill joins us as our first female guest. We run over some local news topics and then finally get into the Tinder experiment. Jill has never had Tinder before, so we got her setup, to try and show guys what they’re up against. We also chat about if it’s appropriate to send a girl a drink who’s sitting with another guy. It happened! Right out of Seinfeld.
Brandon returns for his second guest appearance on the show. We talk about another RNC crackdown on distracted driving and discuss being pulled over. Joel is in and out of the show because of some suspect bad pizza. We get into some serious Tinder chat after Brandon finally succeeded in getting a date from it. City councillor is in the news for alleged sexual harassment, we discuss how, as usual, internet commenters jump to conclusions without any facts. Chat about the local breweries deal to sell beer at convenience stores, and is it at risk? Thanks for tuning in!
We run over some recent news events like the hurricane and Paul Davis leaving the PC party. Nick talks about what kind of flooring he prefers in a store, then we need to learn what not to say to international students, so we check out a video with instructions for morons. We look into the clown stories, but Nick is not buying it and thinks all the reports are made up. There’s always something to be offended about, and this time it’s a sign at the Breezeway. Then we talk about MUN’s “lockdown” when it was reported that a man was on campus with a gun. Should we have a 0 tolerance drunk driving law? A chat about drinking empty beer bottles and enjoying cookies ends the show for another week.
A trend that has spooked many parts of North America now seems to have made its way across the pond to Newfoundland!
While many are speculating about the situation, it’s impossible to be sure exactly what’s happening. Many cases appear to be pranksters trying to scare people, yet there have been more severe serious stories involving threats and even a murder. The uncertainty has led to a number of posts online reporting sightings, and others threatening to harm any clowns they spot.
A kids level of telling on somebody, with adult level consequences.
The boys spend this episode talking about the whole Twitter fiasco with Joel, how it went down behind the scenes, what it’s like to be at the center of a controversy that made national news, the lies that were spread, and the comments received.
