    Having been an residential electrician. In the south. Painters and people who put in sheetrock. They ruin everything. HUNDREDS OF TIMES. Covering outlets and painting EVERYTHING. You’d think every once in a while someone would get the hint, but 90% were fucked. I hate that.

  2. Bryce (Tancasts #3 Fan) Says:

    Sorry for the sentence structure. Flashbacks. 🙁

  3. Mike (TANcast's #1 Fan) Says:

    First of all… loved the jingle. Second, loved the ending. Third, loved everything I didn’t just mention (including the part where I was mentioned). That sounded funnier in my head

    “No dude, I was going to ask you if you wanted Jack in the Box.”

    Gooood episode fellas. I must say tho, Tim… (and apologies if I already said this, I have a shit memory and really don’t feel like going back and checking) I really rather enjoy the other TANlaugh intro that you used uhm…once. Two episodes past. I think. I mean, if everyone else hates it that’s fine. but the first time I heard the high-pitched “Tanlaughs… *giggle*” I choked on my beverage due to the laughter.
    why am I speaking so strangely today?

  6. Andy Says:

    Bryce, the fucktard (there’s that beautiful word again) that painted my house last is either the previous owner or the guy who bought it to try to flip it. I suspect the latter.

    He’s one of my neighbors.

    I daily resist the urge to paint his nutsack a semi-gloss eggshell white, hand him a scraper, and then kick him in the taint (gooch, choad, underball, etc.) until he gets all the paint back off.

    I’m at work, so haven’t listened to the up yet, but I must applaud the header quote currently gracing my screen: “Sunlight is for suckers. Get your TAN online!”. I not only love it despite it’s badness, I love it because of it’s badness.

  8. Andy Says:

    Thank Tim for that one, Murray.

    For me this page now shows “Not affiliated with George Hamilton”, which was one of mine.

    We add new ones once in a blue moon now, but there are almost 40 of these taglines that TANcast.com cycles through.

  9. Alissa (TANcast's #1 Female Fan) Says:

    “Not affiliated with George Hamilton” was one of the first I ever saw on this site and it remains my hands-down favorite.
    Good work Andy.

  10. Murray (TANcast's #1 Aussie fan) Says:

    I LOVE the G-Ham line (haven’t seen it myself): I feel like I get the “No, Mr. Plainview, it is WE who drink YOUR milkshake!”, (which was lost on me until I looked it up (TWBB coming from my post-kids era)) a lot.

  11. Tim (TANcasts #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    Alissa, thanks. I was gonna rotate the two TANlaugh Jingles every week. I’m glad you like the alternate one. I thought it might be a little too slow.

  12. Alissa (TANcast's #1 Female Fan) Says:

    Nope, not too slow at all. It makes me all giggly inside. (I say inside because I tend to listen to TANcast while walking my dogs…and giggling on the outside would garner unwanted attention from the homeless men digging through our dumpsters. *sad trombone*)

  13. Logan Says:

    Yeah you don’t want to giggle at the homeless guys they may get offended.

    You should of played the Shamwow parody in the background when you where talking about Vince’s arrest, because after all you can use a shamwow to clean up horse semen and hooker blood…but Tancast was still funny as always.

  14. Adam Says:

    So i was in Atlanta last week with my choir and i must say the six flags park there smells strongly of shit like it became unbearable at one point but other than that superman blew my mind amazing ride. I was looking around and i thought i spotted the Atlanta local tancast guy when i noticed i was at the Georgia Aquariam and the tancast guy was actually a Baluga whale

    Keep up the great work Guys love the show heading out to Disney world for spring break!!!!
