Brandon joins us for the final episode before Joel is allowed to drink again. We do the inevitable and chat quickly about Trump and the “Women’s March” which wasn’t for women at all. This leads to Joel making a big announcement about Twitter and talking about how tired he is of reading crap from people on Twitter, the real fake news, such as CBC’s fake story on Marketplace. Joel got called for jury duty but thinks he won’t have to go thanks to the people who wanted him fired from his old job. Cheaper gas prices are leaving the east end and moving to Dannyland with the move of a giant store. We go through some funny local news like a pizza guy having his car stolen and a dildo thief, then talk about door to door solicitors and this leads to other scams people fall for. We wrap up the show talking about banks and lineups, and with Joel reflecting on his alcohol-free January.
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!
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.
