Jordan is spot on, we totally had the Snoopy snocone machine too when I was a kid!

If I recall correctly it was super flimsy and broke after a few uses.

Also, when I was a kid we lived near a burger stand outside Olympia, WA called Steamboat Annie's that did a giant burger very much like the burger-za. Can't remember what it was called, and Yelp seems to have no info to confirm our deny it's continued existence, though.

:edit: Found it, it's called the Barge Burger and a version is served both at the drive through stand Steamboat Annie's and at a place across town called Tugboat Annie's, unclear who ripped off whom or if they started under the same ownership. The Barge Burger is a little smaller than childhood memory (ain't that always the way), at ten inches diameter, but is definitely sold as multi serving affair and meant to be cut like a pizza (and I seem to recall the stand sold it in a pizza box).

Tugboat version--for size reference, those are streak fries, and that's a full sized cafeteria tray underneath, not a basket.

What was the hot dog place in Chicago where they're rude to you that was discussed? I kept hearing "Racist Hot Dogs", but that can't be right. Right?

Weiners Circle? I don't remember them discussing it on the podcast, but here's Jack McBrayer and Triumph visiting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33zPlnhymCU

About the ultimate Frisbee hardcore people. When Jordan was talking about that, I could not help but think about road bike races.
Pretty intimating because even the beginners were pretty good, sounds like a similar situation to ultimate. I am glad Jordan had fun. I had fun too, but it was still hard to break into the group. I guess I have to earn their respect by being competitive before they talk to me?

On a side note, I would totally race in a max fun cycling jersey.

Can somebody please explain what a "hall video" is?

Thanks!

Improvnerd, I'm pretty sure the term was "haul videos," related to Lindsay's interest in makeup haul videos, where someone will display and explain a batch of recent makeup purchases.

This is the third time I've had this dumb video of a guy explaining how hot chicks are crazy come up in like two weeks! The first was some friends posting it on Facebook to make fun of it, and then suddenly it appeared in a friend's feed because of how funny and clever and true it was. It's such a trip into another world.

I enjoy that Jesse unconsciously did Jimmy's "welcome in" to the show for Matt.

Re: burger-za: I went to a place in Memphis that sold a (if I recall correctly) 3 pound burger. It was of those Man Vs. Food "finish it and it's free" kind of deals. We just ordered one for the table and ate it 'za-style, though. It was something like 12" across.

Amelia nailed it, but here's an example.

I don't get it either, but the heart wants what it wants.

On the ogling pronunciation debate, I've always pronounced it like oh-gling, like Jordan, instead of awe-gling, since awe-gling should be spelled oggling, in my opinion. However, today in my yearly mandatory workplace harassment training video, the guy said awe-gling, so now I don't know what to believe. These are the ravings of a confused lunatic teacher in the first week of school.

It was sadly only a limited time offer, but Japan created a true burger-za, http://boingboing.net/2013/09/05/1-2kg- ... its-k.html.

Oh wow, yeah, we had one too as a kid. It's a great idea, unless you love your hands and wrists not hurting from trying to manually grind ice into a powder with a hand crank. Probably in storage somewhere, for some reason.
