Sex and death are the two most powerful primal forces in life, friends, so it's time we sit down and have a frank, overdue discussion about the two. Only, not at the same time. Because, gross.

Suggested talking points: Gift Registry, Today Show Slash Fic, Burnin' Rubber, Get Busy Child, Shitty Iron Man, Food Incentive, Down The Sexual Oubliette

Episode 128 MP3

Again with the juggler hate? I thought you brothers were enlightened? Normally, I wouldn't care about such slander, but to say you prefer Juggalos?

How can you prefer people who routinely get top 10 most violent attack lists made out of them and have an extensive record of criminal activity over one of the most ancient performing arts?

To reiterate, here are a few phrases that have never been uttered:

* Uh oh, honey, let's cross the street. I don't want to be savaged by that juggler coming our way.
* Did you hear about Donny? He had his face eaten off by a juggler.
* Do you know what would make this birthday party more fun? People murdering us.

So fine, hate on jugglers. We can take it. But at least stand up for human decency and reject the Juggalo menance.

For the record, I was once menaced by a juggler. True story.

The Throwing Shade sign off was extra appropriate after all of the death talk in this weeks ep.

Also, what was the episode that caused juggler outrage?

Jugglers steal thousands of jobs every day from hard-working Americans. I don't have the statistics on hand for this, but I feel like it's true.

This is just more anti-juggler propaganda. Jugglers are job creators. Who do you think drives production of balls, clubs, bean bags and other juggling related paraphernalia?

Jugglers are often an invisible minority, unseen, quietly practicing their arts behind closed doors. This is done not out of shame, but so they're not attacked by Juggalos.

Since jugglers are nearly indistinquishable from non-jugglers, you may be unaware of their proximity. They may very well be someone close to you. A friend. A relative. Maybe even a spouse. Well, ok, probably not a spouse. You'd have to be blind not to see that.

It feels like the past month or so, MBMBAM has been teetering on the edge. Every week I fear it's going to be the last episode, but the upshot is that whatever mindset the brothers have been in recently, the results are INCREDIBLE.

Whoa. I was coming to post this exact thing. There's definitely a different energy to the shows recently.

You guys do seem to be asking "is this funny?" a lot lately. To answer: Yes. It is always funny.

The only juggler I know is the one who juggles bowling pins in the basketball court of the gym I go to. I'm not going to say he's worse than Hitler, but he's certainly worse than, say, Pol Pot.

Fun fact: Both Hitler and Pol Pot were Juggalos.

I second this. It's one of the few things I look forward to on Mondays. Just live your lives and have fun with it and you'll be fine.

Unfunny things are also made funny when you question whether they are funny or not.
