Never Not Funny host Jimmy Pardo is back to chat about Twitter snitches, how much money he made in 1990, and his award winning podcast Never Not Funny joining Earwolf on today’s b-b-b-onus episode of Comedy Bing Bong Theory! Then, Voda the Gypsy has hunted Scott down for some unfinished business regarding a past encounter at the apple section of a Ralphs grocery store. Plus, the return of Riddle Me This!
Scott and Jimmy discuss the 1980s, including Tom Brokaw's news coverage of the Iran hostage crisis (pondering why he doesn't use the phrase "going for Brokaw"). Jimmy's podcast, Never Not Funny, is now available for free on the Earwolf network, and Scott and Jimmy talk about him being a podcast pioneer, although by no means the first. Scott mentions Paul Rust slicing open his hand, previously mentioned on an earlier episode. Jimmy tries to high five engineer Brett but is rebuffed, leading to Jimmy sharing Steve Agee's childhood high five method: "Up top, down low, cut the jelly, Fonzarelli." Jimmy tells a story about wearing an Arthur Fonzarelli t-shirt onstage and making a play on the popular Ylvis song "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)". Jimmy doubts that he's the first person to make that joke, to which Scott replies "Maybe no one would ever do it because who cares?" Jimmy responds, "That's the type of thing that makes you unlikable."
Voda the Gypsy arrives to get revenge on Scott for taking the last bag of apples at Ralphs. She and another gypsy, Wagner, have a rivalry where they keep cursing each other, which probably caused her recent car accident and subsequent hospitalization. Apparently all of the Apple stores are cursed--one is too crowded, one is too loud, etc.
Scott wonders why people use the words quintuplets, septuplets, etc. Everyone should say five-tuplets, nine-tuplets, etc. He also bemoans the lack of equality in the length of the months of the year.
The theme tune for riddle me this is Prince's "Partyman" from Batman.
Scott tells a story about his mom taking him to the doctor when he was 10 and he told her an anti-joke about zebras: Why did the Zebra go to the fair? Because he wanted to.
- What kind of tree does a man with giant hands like to climb?: Jimmy says maple, Voda says viscous. The answer is a palm tree.
- What is a penguin's favorite food?: Scott and Jimmy say bow tie pasta. The answer is a "brrr"-ito.
