We're closing out this year with a thorough discussion of what Tom Hanks looks like down there, because we love you, and frankly, we think we're spending a little too much time together. A little separation in 20-Bakers-Doz is just what the doctor ordered.

Suggested talking points: Old Langs Sign, Dog Chocolate, Family Circus Dubstep Drop, Christmas Cards, Don't Let Me Into My Slippies, Rebounders, Subway Nugs, Semmeomaway, Tom Hanks Method Bush

Episode 134 MP3

Aaahhh....just spit coffee all over myself when Griffin yelled "Hey, did you see this chocolate!?"

I'm only 18 minutes in, but I'm going to need to see that Family Circus strip.

I'll never look at the scene in Dragnet where Tom Hanks wears those goat-fur leggings the same way again.

Pretty psyched that my yahoo answer was the last of 2012....but I also want to say that we've already started 'leave it behind' as our 2013 motto on new years eve, which I think is a good follow up to 'get it' from 2012.

What happened to 2013: No More Secrets?

Whenever I hear about Family Circus I always think of this:

Regarding live show locations, may I suggest San Francisco? I'm sure Jesse will vouch for us :)

I'd like to throw out Boston for potential live shows this year. Perhaps during or around PaxEast? I'd be happy to help scout out venues if there's any more interest!

Check out The Ottobar in Baltimore. I've never been to a live show so I don't know if standing room only is customary or not but that's all that this great little venue has.

Come to Canada! Obviously I'd prefer Ottawa since I live there, but I'd be willing to go to Toronto or Montreal for a live show. Trying to answer French questions in Montreal would be amazing.

Oh man I would go to any of those cities so fast. French questions are a fine idea, too.

Could 2013 be the year the Brothers McElroy hop the pond? A live show in London would be amaaaaaaazing... Sigh, a man can dream.

I joined the board just to support an Ottawa or Montreal or Toronto show. Would be so down.

Come to Iowa City! Just joshin'; I know. Chicago tho?

Subway nuggets reminds me of a certain marijuana themed sandwich franchise we have here (no buzz marketing) that has 4" subs called "nugs."

Regarding the dog chocolate, isn't there anything in between "give the dog chocolate to my friends" and "throw the dog chocolate away"? I mean if I were confident that my dog's saliva had not touched the chocolate, I would eat that chocolate. No need to waste perfectly good, slightly misshapen foreign chocolate.
