Adam welcomes Jo Koy to the show with a quick plug for his new podcast ‘The Koy Pond’ and BB has a great “gotta spill your nuts” #TopDrop.
Adam is talking about ordering food for the ‘Road Hard’ backers and how he got too much stuff, they always error on the side of you spending more.
He is now trying to offload the food and he talks about how his wife will give too many options for the kids, “do you want the mac and cheese or a BLT?” and how the kids will then ask for the more expensive and time demanding option instead of eating the leftover side dishes Adam wants to get rid of first.
Adam is going over the excess “mac and cheese” and other side dishes.
Adam then went over to Andrew to ask him if he would eat coleslaw, mac and cheese or baked beans.
Adam brings up Simon, the editor of something…
Gina comments on the name of their Director of Photography and Adam is now riffing about Simon’s country of origin and how he heard about him going on “holiday” which he contrasts to American’s and our vacations.
Adam says we “vacate” and he’s riffing up a storm about the shame we include in the word we use, Gary gets on mic to get his vindication and reveals Simon is Swedish.
Gina asks Adam about the last time he went on vacation without working, he recalls the family vacation where they took the kids to Hawaii.
Adam is riffing about the waterslide in the pool area while they were on vacation and he shares how Natalia never climbed down and instead made her rounds around the resort using the lazy river instead of coming down the slide.
Adam says all women do is watch the those shows where women are abducted and they don’t do the statistical math about actual abductions and the anomaly of it ever happening.
Jo is telling them about his son saving a kid in Hawaii and how the father was on his phone totally unaware he almost lost his son.
Adam has a killer “40” and BB calls him on it, Adam tells him to check the tape.
Adam is now explaining how people either underreact or overreact in good Samaritan situations, never appropriately, they call you a saint for telling them about their dropped comb, don’t even reply when you save their child.
Adam is now suggesting an experiment where you abduct the kid of the person who super over reacts to the dropped comb or wallet and see if they blow you for your returning said kid you abducted.
Gina asks if Adam has ever heard parents admit out loud they didn’t know where their kids are and Adam is trying to recall a time he left the kids in the car and got some shit.
Jo has his own anecdote and he declares he’s done complimenting other people’s kids.
Jo talks about how the mother of the 2yr old he complimented gave him a pedophile shrug and had mild disdain instead of appreciation.
Adam is now riffing about people who don’t say hello or good morning when passing you outside, he’s got a killer extreme example with yelling, very funny.
Adam is now explaining he would just give one huge gracias if he was to open up shop in Mexico, he could learn that easily, Adam is now riffing as the middle eastern employee of the gas station, BB has a funny “advanced class is next” comment.

All famous drummers.
Adam is talking about Hillary talking about race and the notion she’s going to right the super white slave ship, Adam is talking about the 8yrs of a black president and how media has only trumped race baiting and Obama couldn’t fix it, so to think they would be able to do what he could not is insulting.
