Adam has a decent Ebola/downtime intro from Dawson and Lynch, Alison’s “Soul mate Yay” drop is of course the #TopDrop and Adam welcomes Tom Cotter to the show.
Adam is trying to explain the essence of comedy and how positive comments don’t fly when trying to get a laugh.
Alison explains that Howie asked her about her marriage off air and she wasn’t enthusiastic enough so he deiced her marriage was jeopardy.
They further explore the idea and Aliso explains how cool Daniel is, the only part he doesn’t like is the pity tweets like people write to Adam about the success of his former partners and how he must be bummed out.
Adam is now asking about Piers Morgan and how his name gets him most of his publicity and access, Adam is bringing up the notion of him taking over Larry King and his “who is this guy” status, Adam compares that to someone taking over Derek Jeter that nobody’s ever heard of.
Adam shares some good news from the Carolla house, it was “Crazy Hair Day” at school and Jokes with Alison about every day being that for her while she was in elementary school.
Adam walked in on his dad watching football highlights while sharing how participating in a crazy hair day doesn’t “move the needle” and just a waste of his time, Adam was so proud and everyone has great reactions to pragmatism.
Adam is talking about people who leave messages on windshields, he has done this and is conveniently not bringing it up, but he did have different circumstances, was cool in his note and gave the guy tons of chances.
Adam leaves a note on a guy’s car and he calls into the show.
Adam is now bringing up the idea of “room for cream” at coffee places and how they save 2 inches of coffee for every time you say yes to it.
Adam explains how it could fool at least 25% of the customers just by the wording, despite there always being a little room in the top of the cup
BB is now arguing against Adam saying it’s statistically insignificant, fans have actually done the math, it’s millions of dollars of saving per year, once again BB doesn’t believe companies reduce products and servings to keep costs lower than normal.
Dawson shares how he asks for a medium coffee in a large cup, saying you often get more coffee that way and allowing you to mix in crème.
BB is once again asking about coffee places and thinking this isn’t a thing, trying to shit on his boss.
Alison explains her reasoning for pulling the same move Dawson does, she can’t keep from spilling.
Alison is asking for Caelan’s expertise as a former expert barista at ‘Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’ and now Dawson is sharing how he was told about this tip by a Starbucks Barista and he started doing this in 2006, when it was just Dawson and the girl employee back in the KLSX ACS days.
BB asks Caelan about what gets thrown it out, he says tons of decaf.
“Why do I feel like I’m talking to a retarded trashcan” –Adam
Alison agrees with Adam and Adam is continuing to hammer BB who objects, Adam is trying to do the sheer math of locations and customers, Dawson is now asking for his own order to prove Adam’s point.
Adam is telling everyone to let the smart person try, Alison now explains the two orders needed and how they need to send two people to ensure the data isn’t compromised.
Adam is now telling Dawson to go back to the lab, joking about his experiment of trying not to smoke weed for 3 days… hilarious drop form BB.
