–While Bobby deals with some howling werewolves, Jason starts talking about Wonder Woman, a movie that is a hit with audiences; women in particular. Why? Because it shows a “strong woman” and doesn’t rely on the main character’s sexuality.
–Bobby tells a story he heard about a mother who made up her daughter’s hair for her school’s “crazy hair day,” and later regretted that she led her child to appropriate black culture.
–We recount how our skeptic meetup went this past Wednesday, and how nice of a time we had. Jason says he was glad he didn’t have to do all the talking. Bobby says that once the topic is himself, he can go on forever.
–We missed the “covfefe” hubbub while we were gone, but get into it now. Mainly, we agree that it should be pronounced with a silent v, and with a flourish of the hand.
–Has the Comey testimony been much ado about nothing? It kind of seems so. While Trump may have acted improperly, and there’s no doubt the guy is a little unhinged, neither of us heard anything that sounded like obstruction of justice, treason, or any other high crimes and misdemeanors.
–A trio of entertainers got into trouble recently, and we cover each individually. First, Kathy Griffin was fired from CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage for images involving her holding up the “severed head” of Donald Trump. Bill Maher got into some pretty hot water for using “the N-word” on his HBO show Real Time, and had to deal with Ice Cube. Plus, Reza Aslan was canned from CNN for calling Donald Trump a “piece of shit.”
–We finish up with a bit about the recent goings-on in the Cosby sexual assault trial. Jason doesn’t want to make a prediction about the outcome, but fears that if he is found not guilty, it will cause a lot of blowback from the victims of sexual assault.
