The Tale of the Melted Fork

While Heavy Longmire is still out trapping muskrat, Ty and Gus got together to talk old game shows, share a story about a melted fork, kick around some hardware ideas and do a little dentist talk.

Ty starts things off with a story about the former child actor, his jeep, a college cop, and some shade tree mechanics.  The shade tree mechanics lead Gus back to another co-worker from the previous episode’s stories about their first job.

Gus wonders about the species of grass which may contain the same chemical that is in vanilla and shows that he knows way too much about Hierochloe oderata.  The vanilla talk leads the boys down a path back to a vague and ultimately incorrect memory about an episode of Family Ties where someone drinks vanilla extract for the alcohol.  Gus and Ty are dead wrong on which character it was.  Be sure to listen to the outro to see if you can identify the very famous voice who actually did drink the vanilla extract.

Recently Gus went to get his teeth cleaned and had a really bad time while on nitrous oxide.  Ty then drops a bomb shell on Gus which leaves Gus worried about how long Ty has left on this earth.

Oops……

Then Gus tells Ty about a trip to his parents where he saw his brother and how one thing led to another and then there was a smoker, a melted fork and some cussing.  That led to his brother doing some bourbon fueled welding to “fix” the melted fork.

Ty shares the story of his grandmother on famous game show.  Once again they then dive into game show talk and fondly remember the Price is Right and the Gong Show.  Then they geek out over Tom Snyder and Joe Franklin for a while.

Curvy Girls and Seventies Game Shows

In Episode 26 of Can You Hear Me, the guys turn their attention to the sexiness of curvy girls, old game shows from the seventies and a crime story that could only happen in the 903 area code.

During the discussion of Suzy’s Lounge in Episode 25, the crew postponed talking about women with curves due to not having enough time to dedicate to the topic.  With a new episode, they have plenty of time and give it their full attention to their attraction to curvy girls.  They give a brief history of how societal attitudes toward women with more voluptuous figures changed from the fifties into the late sixties and bemoan the rise of super thin models such as Twiggy.  Gustav points out London Andrews as an example of the new school of models with curves.

But as usual, the team can’t stay on one topic too long and they discuss how seventies game shows allowed the children to have a glimpse into the adult world, even if they didn’t fully comprehend what they were hearing.  Shows like The Gong Show, Match Game and the Newlywed Game are prime examples of shows that the guys watched.  Gustav recalls a Chuck Barris produced show called Three’s A Crowd (although at the time of recording, he could not think of it’s name) where men went on the game show with their wives and secretaries and awkwardness ensued.  Check out clip below to see what Gustav was talking about.

Heavy preaches the greatness of the Netflix original series Stranger Things.  That leads Ty to point out how much technology has changed parenting styles when you compare now to how when the guys grew up in the eighties.

Then Gustav shares a news story from the 903 area code where Gainesville, TX police shut down an Asian massage parlor after a patron got more than he expected.

All this plus feedback from a new listener, Snapchat confusion, and making fun of Heavy’s dog.
