    3 things:

    1. I’m fairly certain you guys already have a few fans who would be willing to take on an official continuity checking role. Hell, I’d do it if you paid me. I accept cash and Panda Express.

    2. Code Red is indeed the best Dew. Back in my heavy overtime tester days, whenever I was feeling physically awful (headache, exhausted, whatever), I would eat some pretzels and drink a Code Red. I always felt better afterward.

    3. You forgot the next step after weed becomes legal and taxed and commercialized: you will get your overpriced organic weed at Whole Foods!

  2. Gino Says:

    Tim is that the Soarin over California music in the KTLA bit?

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

    I think that my underlines in the joke might have been to avoid my son seeing dirty words if he saw the screen when I was printing the jokes out (I was originally going to record one for TANcast 50). I think that I skipped the last one because it was a last minute rewrite.

    Either that or the PG13 thing…

    PS: Re: the English workout: You must check out the related video “Take Anything You Want- Japanese learning english” on Youtube. The bit starting at 1:30 is hilarious.

    Live Wire is the best dew.
    Manga and TANcast go rather well together. This may become a weekly thing for me. lol

  5. Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan) Says:

    Gino, the music is from the American President which they do play while you’re waiting in line for Soarin’. Good ear.

    Murry, ah now it all becomes clear.

    Mike, that would be awesome if someone could animate fucked up manga shit in sync with TANcast

  6. Melanie (TANCast's #1 MILF/GILF) Says:

    I vote Alissa as continuity manager. She’s all over it. πŸ™‚

    I don’t do dew. Pepsi, baby!

    Murray: I’ve seen that Japanese thing before. Slays me every time.

  7. Alissa (TANcast's #1 Female Fan and NEW #3 Fan wooo!) Says:

    Lol Melanie I almost volunteered.
    I’ll get to work on compiling all my notes.
    (I’m kidding, I’ve never taken notes before, but I might start)

  8. Tank Says:

    So, I’m all for dead baby & “my balls”/”yo mama” jokes, but I think the best episodes of TANcast are the legit debate ones. Kudos, guys, for being able to be on both sides of the fence, so to speak.

  9. Tank Says:

    And check-plus on “Potbucks”!

    Just got to the bit about Arizona so I thought Europe had better write in πŸ™‚ Obviously I can speak for all of it!!

    I’ve been pulled over a few times in the UK and have never had to show any ID (I don’t even carry any picture ID). Mostly it was because my car was profiled – it was a ‘boy racer’ type car – and a few times for naughtiness.

    The police are only really interested in whether you are capable/allowed to drive the vehicle – not if you should be in the country. They’d ask to see your licence – not your passport and visa. If they think you are involved in some criminal activity then obviously they will check up on you further.

    As for racial profiling. . .I’m white so I can’t speak about any experiences of (negative) racial profiling. I’m not naive – it probably goes on more than I think it already does – but I believe the authorities try hard to prevent it happening. There has to be a legit reason for stopping someone and a legit reason to see any ID, and definitely a legit reason to take them to jail – not just because it’s a black dude in a hoodie innit! (Or a foreigner out without his passport on his person!)

    I’d say the police here are really openly sexist though. Whenever I got pulled over they were always so lovely to me, perhaps giving me a little telling off if needed and apologising for stopping me before smiling and sending me on my way. The guys however usually ended up with their cars getting searched, were fined and given points for their naughty moments and were almost always given a 7-day producer (take their licence and vehicle documents into a police station).

    There’s a little about police stuff in the UK, albeit from a resident living in a relatively nice area. I hope it answers your query a little πŸ™‚

    I loved the bad case of Diarrhea video. But I am not sure what bothers me more. That it’s about Diarrhea, or that they have the German word “fraulein” (woman) on their shirts….

  12. Hale (TANcast's #1 Mousetalgia Fan) Says:

    I’m just gonna put this out there… I’m the guy from Mousetalgia. I was honored to be mentioned on a podcast that I wasn’t even listening to yet. πŸ™‚

    I was there for the release party of Mountain Dew Voltage. When the 08-09 Winter Dew Tour stopped in Vermont, they were giving out samples. There was a concert with some contest winners and Boys Like Girls played. They were giving out full cans of the stuff at the end! But it was cold, man… Out on the slopes in Vermont in January.
