Adam interrupts himself to tell them about going to dinner with Kevin Hench last night after the podcasts, Adam shares Lynette’s reaction to him not bringing her home some food, she referenced Adam always bringing up her not getting him grub when she picks up food for the family.

Adam asks BB and Gina if they do the same thing with their partners, Adam calls it a verbal wringing of the hands and he says that as a man he’s short and curt to be efficient.

Adam and the gang are discussing cube vans vs. the Nissan Cube and the Kia Sol after bringing up the commercial with the rodents.


Adam says that in the candy bar of life you’ll never change the nougat in the core, he thinks men need to communicate like women and says his wife is not capable of thinking like him, but he can speak her language, on brisk shot with a snow shovel to the temple, nine beers or a good old fashioned exhaust pipe garage asphyxiation and he can operate at her level.

Hilarious riff.

BB is now asking Adam about getting one’s house in literal order beefier the birth of a child, Adam has a funny “shutters” riff and he brings up the Polaris pool cleaning device and says he’s akin to it, he goes off on a tangent about the “Evil tail” the Polaris machine has, like the tail that killed Steve Irwin.


Adam is now going off on tails in general, tales have an agenda, they’re either a weapon or a card in the spoke of life to let everyone know what a joyous creature you are.

Adam is bringing up Doberman ear cutting/modification and how much it must piss off Pamela Anderson, he’s now riffing about the origin of the idea for clipping Doberman tails and ears, he’s walking them through the steps one would choose to do this, why not give them a tattoo as well?


Adam is trying to recall a movie called ‘Those Amazing Dobermans’ a TV movie, akin to if Aquaman was landlocked and evil according to Adam.

Adam is now trying to recall the movie ‘Trapped’ and jokes about the notion of 7 dogs running wild through the night and destroying your mall.

Adam says he would be a bad Doberman and jokes about how he would choose not to pursue James Brolin, he would instead just chill and avoid the sports section crossbow fight finale, instead waiting for the assistant manager to arrive.

Adam jokes about circumcising Doberman dogs as they already have so many modifications and says he wants a bone stock Doberman and they all joke about Doberman ear clipping and how a lab doesn’t seem to have much travel with its floppy ears.

Adam wraps up with Kevin and then riffs about the mental process of being consumed, the mind blowing ways to die.

OJ Simpson Killing Ron Goldman and realizing he’s being murdered by a megastar; Adam says it would take a little edge off of the decapitation.
