Episode Summary

We review 1969's "It Was A Short Summer, Charlie Brown" with special guest Nicole Dieker!

Episode Notes

We wrist-wrestle with 1969's IT WAS A SHORT SUMMER, CHARLIE BROWN, in which the boys take on the girls in a summertime battle of the sexes, and get their dumb, uncoordinated butts handed to them for the better part of a half-hour. Special guest Nicole Dieker joins us in an episode recorded in the middle of the damn ocean during this year's JoCo Cruise.

  • the proper rules of "hangman", and Nicole coining the phrase "hangdoodle";
  • Garbage Snoopy Land, with alternate Snoopy creatures;
  • You can hug a meatlump, but can a meatlump hug you back?;
  • Asshole Blanket Gymnastics;
  • the migratory habits of Brazilian potato chips;
