    Not sure if I should worry BUT my son (about 2 months old) is very talkative while the podcast is playing.

  2. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF) Says:

    Be afraid, Chelsea. Be very afraid.

    Tim, I completely understand where you are coming from with being fed up with 24. I too am sick of the fact that every [b] FREAKING [/b] character has to have a secret life, dark past, or redneck, trailer-trash boyfriend. But, since the first season drew me in with the truly unconventional ending, I have felt obligated to keep watching. In fact, by now I would be breaking the 20th Commandment of Nerd Law if I stopped watching (http://www.toplessrobot.com/2010/01/the_20_nerd_commandments.php).

    As a substitute, I would try catching some episodes of Human Target. I’ve heard it described as “24, without all the angst”. I’ve got this week’s episode queued up on the DVR, and I’m hoping the reccomendation is correct.

    And I guess BB Code doesn’t work on the comment section…Nice…:P

  6. Andy Says:

    Not BBCode, but simple HTML works.

    Andy, you and your evil Apple sorcery can go straight to Hell…Speak not to me of this Jobsian evil know as HTML!!! Never shall I use…what? It’s not an Apple exclusive programming code?

    Well shit!

    Vrej, that was awesome.

  11. Andy Says:

    Vrej, I said simple HTML, not CSS injection. 😉

    Still kickass:

  12. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF) Says:

    Andy – do we finally see the real you?!

  13. Jason Says:

    This episode was like a failure sandwich between two slices of hilariousness. The beginning and ending were both very funny with words,words,words in between.

  14. Vrej Says:

    Thanks Andy.

    Stay Gold, pony boy.

  15. Dean Says:

    Andy and I should write a parenting book together…

  16. Andy Says:

    Chapter 1 – Do NOT eat your own young (unless you are really pissed off at them, really hungry, or a pig)!

    Chapter 2 – Do NOT eat the young of those around you (while they are watching)!

    Chapter 3 – Picking a mallet.

    Chapter 4 – Child Protective Services and You!

    Chapter 5 – Beer: Amnesia in a Bottle.

    Chapter 6 – Winning arguments by strength alone.

    Chapter 7 – So, your daughter wants to be a stripper…

  17. Vrej Says:

    Chapter 8- GET OUT!GET OUT!GET OUT!

  18. Dean Says:

    My primitive parenting style boils down to two things:

    1) Tell them you love them (and tell them often)
    2) Tell them when they’re fucking up (as needed)

  19. Melanie (TANcast's #1 MILF/GILF) Says:

    Dean, I think you hit it right one.
