The Best Debate in the Universe - For years I've railed against McDonald's, likening their food to "pig shit" and garbage. This episode I get roped into DEFENDING them! So the debate this week is: SHOULD YOU EAT MCDONALD'S (BASED ON MADDOX'S ARGUMENTS)?
Monday September 11th 2017
Should you eat McDonald's? Debate starts at 20:29. Mike Gamms joins us for some debate fuckery this week as I get roped into DEFENDING McDonald's! For years I've been shitting on McDonald's, from their Ailing Vomit campaign to this old article from 1999. So it came as somewhat of a surprise when Gamms brought in my own arguments against me. I suspected something was up when I didn't get a clear answer which side he'd be debating beforehand. No matter, because being a master debater, I defended McDonald's with aplomb. Maybe too convincingly? Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel:
Here's the crew from this week:
Rucka got called out hard for roasting a monk last episode. We also had a heated debate about clam chowder and bread bowls at the top of the show. Rucka claims that you pay upwards of $8 extra for a bread bowl. I looked up the price of a regular bowl vs bread bowl of clam chowder at a restaurant called "The Chowder Barge." Looks like it's only $3 more. Worth it?
Mikey Bolts is back from Play List Live this week, and in good form. Mikey happens to be an ardent fan of McDonald's, and it was fun watching the confused looks on his face as I argued against myself from years ago. I could tell what he really wanted to eat: SOME GREEK BAKLAVA. Or maybe that was just me. (still is)
Also, a big you're-welcome to everyone who pre-ordered my book: F*CK WHALES: Petty Essays from a Brilliant Mind. The countdown has begun. October 17. Clear your year. Clear your life:
We round out the episode with a story about a Tinder date that ended with the woman getting stuck between two windows to retrieve an ill-conceived turd. This may have been Rucka's favorite news story. Plus a bunch of nurses wanted to look at a cadaver's junk. Who cares? Their bosses, apparently. Drawling Ozzie, email me. Voicemail number below.
