Ointments, Copays, and a Snakebite

This week’s episode begins with Gustav recounting the story of the snakebite his seven year old daughter received on Memorial Day weekend.  She’s fine now, but it was a scary weekend followed by a few days at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas.

With all the medical talk, Heavy asks the guys to think about how fathers approach health care versus the way that mothers might.  As you can imagine, Heavy has some very specific ideas about the subject.  Along the way, Gustav gives tips for how to procure IV saline solution without a prescription for your emergency preparedness needs.  Heavy provides his own questionable tips and then shares his run in with Lyme Disease back in his scouting days.

The Juvenile Copperhead that Bit Gustav’s Daughter

An email from the Fake Bailey Jay spurs Gustav to talk about how her appearance and sweetness causes people to want to share all sorts of stories with her even though she is an introvert who doesn’t want strangers talking to her.  Fake Bailey Jay and Gustav ran the Tough Mudder in Austin and had no shortage of new friends.

The guys also talk about Heavy’s irrational dislike of anything to do with clowns, Tough Mudder, sunburns, and sunscreen.  And no episode would be complete without a walk down memory lane.  The guys babble about Buck Rogers and Silver Spoon, which both featured the super hot Erin GreyErin Gray in Buck Rogers

Lizard Men, a White Couch and a Kick Ass Uncle

This week the boys are back in full force with a tale of a guy that believes that Lizard Men are ruling the earth.  But first, we follow up our UFO talk with a tale of an unidentified flying object from our West Texas brother Tellito of something he saw flying through the sky one cold evening long ago.  Find out why what Tellito saw that night scares Gustav to this very day.

Ty and Heavy take a minute to thank the Fake Bailey Jay for guest hosting a few weeks back.  Maybe someday we will bring Fake Bailey Jay live in our garage studio.

Heavy brings up one of the folks he runs into in his professional life that has warned him about the second sun which may be hurtling towards Earth as we speak.  The same man has been warning Heavy that a reptilian race of lizard men are ruling human kind.  But the boys love conspiracy talk so they are up for the conversation.

Lizard Men are Everywhere!

Travis sent in a very unfortunate story he heard about a couple in Arkansas, a white couch and the unluckiest dog around. The boys are shocked and amused at the same time.

Gustav touches briefly on the weirdness of Sid and Marty Krofft and their insane children’s shows which the crew grew up watching.  Mr. Show did a great satire of the Krofft products years ago.  Take a couple of minutes to watch the clip:


Then Gustav fondly remembers his aunt’s second husband who was the definition of a kick ass seventies dude.  Whether it was driving a Trans-Am way too fast, accidental discharges of a .375 H&H rifle or permanently scaring Gustav from using his Hippity Hop, this Uncle was the balls.  They don’t make them like that anymore.
