While you’re just sitting around the house with your slice of Chicago-style deep dish pizza you might as well click play and listen to this week’s episode. There are jokes about men getting killed by swans, Dick Clark’s demise and George Zimmerman posting bail. Pretty sunny material for us. Listen to us be Jamaican.
I have some rather unpleasant news and it’s time I share it with you. If we are friends brace yourself for a bit of a bummer. If we are enemies, ready the cake! The doctors call it “cancer”, Hodgkin lymphoma stage 2 to be specific. The point is it doesn’t…
Not too much happens on this week’s episode. Some jokes are told, we learn that Newt Gingrich got bitten by a penguin and small children get way too much attention. Oh and Jimmie tells us about the cancer he now has. That’s right. He’s going to beat the shit out of it and in this episode he tells us how he will do so. The Slights of the Roundtable are about to face their first serious challenge but don’t worry as it will not stop the flow of their terrible jokes!
Occasionally one of the Slights of the Roundtable have to miss an episode and we have someone fill in for them. Subbing in for Jimmie this week is the Irish American, Tom McGuane. When he wasn’t running from snakes or hoarding gold Tom told us tales of east coast diners, spiders and rightfully judged us on our taste in shitty chain restaurants. Order a bloomin’ onion and start listening!
Now at bat: the Slights of the Roundtable. They’ve had two broken noses between them and not much of a history of pranks. Their vasectomies are all reversible at your local pawn shop but don’t you dare go ice fishing with them while using annoying slang words or else they will report you to President Osama. Read your jokes!
