Title: e-cigarettes
Post by: Bull Shannon on July 27, 2017, 02:26:48 PM
I'm just putting it out to the hivemind that I'd love to see either clips or just episodes/timestamps of times the e-cigarettes for legs guy called (if it's all one guy).

The first time I remember must've been like a year ago, (I wanna say Tom Can't Complain from April 20 '16 or the one where the crew dictated Tom's mood/personality) when a guy called in to say he was sad because he got fired from work for having two e-cigarettes for legs.

And a recent favorite was June 21 '17, around 1:41:00, where the guy gets Tom absolutely riled about Johnny Depp in Murder on the Orient Express before the reveal.

I hated this guy the first time... Now i think he might be one of the all time greats.

Like James, but more imaginative... Imagine if it is James back in some brilliant new form?? Like a butterfly finally hatched from his cocoon...

Yeah, those calls are kind of mesmerizing.

A very layered story of e-cigarettes for legs on the Vapetriliquism episode. I'm pretty sure that guy woke up with a new name in a new dimension after making that call.

I love the fact that he's playing the long con, not just interested in getting a bit of glory tonight. He's willing to build on the previous calls and let his bit slowly evolve into whatever it becomes.

This bit is so good. I listen to the podcast and follow the Twitter account, and it always gets spoiled for me. This bothers me so much that I may have to start listening live solely to experience one of these calls without knowing it was coming.

Just adding my voice to the growing chorus of a e-cigarettes clip montage or timeline or whatever. Just want to listen to a bunch of them in succession.

It bothers me some that there are already 187 views of that.

the best (only good?) part of them is Tom's reaction when he gets got

Well, Tom did say that he knows who he is now, but I would not be shocked if it was revealed that it was a group of dunces derailing the show for their own personal entertainment. Him sucking the life out of Beatles Talk the other night particularly got my goat.

It was one guy in the beginning, but now multiple people have tried to do The Bit - they can never reach the quality of the first caller. I don't think it's a coordinated group, just people attempting to recreate a thing they can't.

The orig e-cigs dude is seriously one of my favorite callers of all time. The fake-o ones should give it a rest. They're diluting the goof.
