We’ve heard your requests for a brand new Slights of the Roundtable episode and we have acquiesced! We’ve also heard your requests for getting rid of the awful hosts and format but that we’re still undecided on. So it’s a compromise where no one is happy. So we’re like Congress but with worse jokes. OK, back the self-loathing chamber.
"Stripes that run across the body are more slimming than supposedly-flattering vertical stripes, according to research by perception expert Peter Thompson of the University of York.” - From the Telegraph on 11 Sept 2008
This show marks a milestone in Slights history. No, not our first quality joke - we finally landed a guest! Listen to the charming Molly as we try and figure out how to behave in front of a lady and fail miserably.
Hear ye, hear ye! The new Slights of the Roundtable episode has arrived! You will hear slightly entertaining jokes as well as discussions about calling your parents, who won the hip hop east v. west war and time travel. Oh yes, and there’s a new robot character who joins us. Listen….now.
After listening to this week’s episode you may be inspired to create your own version of Dungeons and Dragons within the Slights of the Roundtable world which would be way sadder and nerdier than anything a bunch of pimply teenagers could ever dream up in their basement while sucking down some Fresca.
Listen to this week’s episode while you’re shaving your chest and cooking up a fine stew while making sweet love to Dame Judi Dench. But that’s probably how most of you listen to this every week, so just keep on doing what you always do. Don’t forget to douche your rectum when you’re finished!
We might have revealed a little too much personal information on this one. I’m not talking about our lighting preferences during sex, but when we actually put our feet on the table - that was just inappropriate. We apologize to you, the listener. Can we make it up to you with some discussion about porn and celebrity sex tapes?
I didn’t know Michael was writing for Salon under the pen name of Glenn Greenwald. I wonder why he wastes time on our crappy podcast then? Oh I get it, to keep his cover. We’re his weird electronics store in Queens.
Here you’ll get something that you won’t get anywhere else in internet land: people arguing about Anthony Weiner’s penis. No one else is really talking about that, right? Also we discuss Santorum. I thought everyone knew about Santorum, but apparently not everyone is up to speed on the meaning of the word Santorum. Good thing we have an explanation on the show as to what Santorum means otherwise you the listener would be in the dark about Santorum. Santorum!
We’ve made it into the double digits! Unfortunately we can’t say the same for our IQs yet.
Ever wanted to know what it would sound like when Kermit performed oral sex on Miss Piggy? Ever wanted to hear boring stories about getting arrested from white suburban kids? Ever had friends introduce you to an asshole that you had to pretend to like? (Just pretend) Then there’s something here for you!
This episode sounds even better if you listen while downing a few Big Macs while watching Hollywood movie trailers during the rapture. Can you really say the same about other comedy podcasts? I don’t think so.
The weirdest episode yet. There’s anger, yelling and awkwardness aplenty. Like Thanksgiving dinner but you won’t need to go to the local watering hole afterwards and drink yourself into oblivion before waking up next to someone who fought in the Korean War! That happens to everyone, right?
What constitutes the Midwest? Listen to find out. What’s more boring than hearing a discussion about what constitutes the Midwest? Listen to find out. What’s more entertaining than three people fighting about the Midwest? Probably lots of things. Listen anyway.
