Do you ever look around this world and think to yourself, man, I’m glad Ol’ Dirty Bastard died before he had to see all of this shit? No. Me neither. Though it’s hard not to reminisce about a time when political correctness was roundly mocked and scolded, rather than the practical law of the land. The return of all types of tribunals has not served this planet well. … Continue readingLMOE #153 – Deadnaming, Naked Professors, and Bezos Peen
I like to think of Matt and I as great detectives searching for real evidence in a worldwide case of fake news, bullshit, obfuscation, and misdirection. But, honestly, neither of us would pass a background check to be a detective in any known law enforcement office. Damn you pee tests and criminal background searches.

How long have you been beating your wife, Mr. Man? It’s okay to hate the world. Or at least Gillette and their stamped out safety razors. … Continue readingLMOE #149 – Toxic Masculinity Don’t Need No Razors
Today was the day I think we finally said something meaningful. I can’t be sure. 147 practice runs and finally, there may be an ounce of wisdom in today’s show. It’s not as easy being profound as people on Twitter and motivational speaker tapes and Oscars speeches make it out to be. Most people say dumb shit most of the time. And we’re above average in the rankings. But today, oh boy oh boy. … Continue readingLMOE #148 – R. Kelly Sweet Smell of Relief
