80's Rick: "It works really well but it smells like a mix of (something) fudge, wet burlap and burnt urine -- hello?"

I'm completely unfamiliar with John Roderick, but did anyone else think he sounded like Seth Rogen? I thought he was a great guest, personally. He didn't say much, but he made me laugh more than once
For sure:

Mike: You said my luggage was creepy!
JR (perfect comic timing): Your posture is creepy!

amiright??

Correct me if I'm wrong, but did we hear someone crawling to the mic to participate in the call from Bryce?

Tom yelling "IT WAS A BAAAABY!" at Bryce, followed by random thumping noises.

After listening to the show in its entirety, I'm convinced someone can devise a drinking game around the random thumpings (or as I prefer to call them: Tom's "emergency naps").

It's also amazing to me that 4 Loko so befuddles the mind that I couldn't even accomplish a simple Jake LaMotta impression: "I never went down, Sugar. You never got me down, Sugar."

Doesn't the label indicate how many you are supposed to drink?

Top to bottom that was the best Best Show ever. There may have been bits that made me laugh more, but from start to finish none was better.

Fave line (Relatively sober division)- "I'm getting my masters in library science"
"What are you learning? How to attach an unweildy object to the men's room key?"

That's papraphrased and thus likely mangled, but it still made me laugh.

Mike making a point to get on mic to say "I'm gonna help myself to some cheese" and Tom devolving into his time-honored caricature of a drunk were the highlights for me.  The Christmas caroling actually made me genuinely nostalgic.

in britain, we sadly don't have access to the wonders of FourLoko, what we do have is "Buckfast Tonic Wine", which is a similar beverage, but brewed by benedictine monks!!

it is quite controversial in Scotland, because of it's links to low-income-youth-violent crime in an area around Glasgow now known as "the Buckfast triangle".

Don't you mean "from soup to nuts?"

I have nothing new to contribute -- except I think John Roderick has a touch of very-calm Jeff Garlin in his voice, and I hope saying so does not trigger a campaign to stop telling people, "You know who you sound like?" -- but these made me guffaw-replay-guffaw:

The way 80s Rick said that sad "Hello?" at the end of his sentence.

Tom yelling "IT WAS A BAAAABY!" at Bryce, followed by random thumping noises.
&
Tom devolving into his time-honored caricature of a drunk.

Also, "guffaw-replay-guffaw" will be my next Ted Leo parody song.

There was a programme about it on the BBC where they found 40% of people in one Scottish young offenders' institute had been drinking "Buckie" before they were arrested.

It's also famous of course for featuring in a Ted Leo song...

It's not often I get to interact with a sentient Brazilian settlement, Quilombo.  I like the movie and the song you inspired.

This moment got eclipsed in my memory by the LOKO MADNESS that followed, but I loved the story of Tom meeting the two teenagers at the basketball game:

"When you get to high school, I'm gonna getcha...and if you try to go to Vo-Tech, HE'S gonna getcha!"
"A Man Can Make a Dog Break Its Gaze." - Tom
