Adam is opening the show to a George Clooney wedding/’Ocean’s 13’ termed joke from Dawson and Lynch.

BB plays the James Gandolfini impression from yesterday’s show courtesy of Robert Patrick, he tells in studio guest Jo Koy to prep his vocal chords, he’s going to be singing the ‘Taboo II’ theme song.

Adam shares he went to his dentist today for a cleaning, he then tangents off into the pictures people send him of available jelly packets at their table. He explains the non-flavor of ‘Mixed berry’ and what a cop out it is, Jo has a personal revelation about that very topic, realizing it for the first time.


Adam is now ranting about jelly, he is sharing his frustration with the variety pack element of life, he uses bagels as his example for how people eventually succumb to eating what they don’t like that much, like Halloween candy.

“Anything with a streetcar on it, I’m eating” – Adam on the locally made San Francisco jerky he had on set, Adam is now ranting about the need for trail mix in every craft service table setup, joking about security at Costco making you leave with a tub of the shit.

Adam is now lamenting the idiots on set and at work who dictate shitty flavors, Adam is back to the tooth cleaning and the hummus paste (pumice) used, he’s breaking down the scene and sharing the hygienists questions about his flossing habits.


Adam is now asking how far the bullshit goes and didn’t lie to the hygienist about his flossing, Alison asks a follow up question and Adam is now joking about the mood ring the hygienists wear that dispenses the pumice.

Adam says it was cherry flavored and he requested mint, he was met with “some people like it” reply, Adam is now explaining how she said they have mint and Adam says that when you see gray around the temples start with the fucking mint.

Adam is explaining her “there’s only a couple of mint left” follow up reply which proves his logic, clearly everyone prefers the mint, that’s why they’re fucking sold out and have a drawer filled with Cherry.


Alison wants to know who she’s saving it for and I want to know what other fucking gods of comedy are coming through her chair, save the cherry for every other moron, lady douche!

Adam is now joking about Pina Colada minus the booze with sand in place of said missing booze, Adam ordered her to get the mint out and mocks her staying the course

Adam is now asking who likes the blueberry bagels, Adam asks why have that flavor and expectation, why should someone expect their favorite flavor when they go in for a medical procedure.


Adam is now joking about shitty bagels and bad cherry flavor, he’s threatening to dump trail mix on the people he casts out of society for their bad taste and preference of crappy flavors and food.

Adam and Alison are mocking the white “bird turds” in trail mix and just killing it.

Adam is now lamenting why she tried to dump that nasty cherry shit off on him, the adult man, he now brings up the uncomfortable 22min of this procedure and how there is nothing enjoyable to take from the experience. He jokes about the Dixie cup rinse at the end of the producer after Aliso suggests that’s the best part.


Adam says the best you can do is have familiarity, use the same flavor of mint that people use at home while caring for their teeth.

Adam does a self-satisfied sniff and Jo just realizes that’s a recurring bit they do, this long?

Adam explains the poor bathroom etiquette at the dentist office and how poorly they are running their bathroom and office. Alison thought this rant was heading towards the bathroom key being attached to a toothbrush, Adam said he would enjoy that and they continue to have a discussion about all of this.

Adam is now joking about raping pre-teens and Jo is doing his impression of Elliot, he’s killing it but talking too much.


Adam is now asking Alison what he could’ve said that offended Elliot so much, BB is now playing the drops to have Adam accurately show Jo how Elliot was engaging, or not engaging while on stage.


Adam closes out the topic unsure of what he did to offend the man, he did nothing but anytime anyone wants to explain why they didn’t do well on the show they call Adam a racist or say his fans are ‘Carollatards’ or some other hateful shit and then somehow walk away like their shit doesn’t stink when they are the ones who shit the bed.

Adam is now singing the ‘Taboo II’ theme song to Jo Koy and explaining the nature of the film and the soundtrack, he’s not filling in any of the details of finally meeting the composer and his mom who sang the vocals and did the moaning sounds.

Adam thanks Saint Archer for sending beers over, he also thanks Vending One for the vending machine.

Adam says he dated Cher and talk about his look, Adam is telling them about starting with Katey Sagal and got on the weird celebrity handyman list, he says he was a cunt hair away from working on Scott Baio’s place.

Adam credits the circle of assistants who hire for these jobs in reply to Alison and he credits his honest work, and lack of interest in stealing or raiding panty drawers of course.
