The Greatest Generation Ep 120: No More Lead in the Pencil (S5E21)

| 0 comments

When the Entrepreneur makes an unscheduled stop on the way to a passenger's destination, the diversion puts more than the ship's 5-star rating in jeopardy. But when a giant Glassybaby in the cargo bay falls over, its contents prove to be irresistible to just about everyone on board (except those with a special conscience). Who's working the bag check on the Enterprise? Is the marimba the most romantic instrument? What qualifies as a tragedy? It's the episode that will force you to take a cold shower, afterwards!

This week on One Bad Mother, Tempest DuJour joins Biz as co-host to answer the question "What do you mean they don’t want to be your friend baby girl?” What are we supposed to do as parents if our kids feel like they don’t have friends? I mean besides threaten those kids who dare not like our children. That probably qualifies as getting “too involved.” But what is enough involvement and how bitter is that pill to swallow that there really isn’t anything you can do to keep your children from emotional pain? Plus we call Theresa and we announce our first LIVE show in San Francisco!

When some stripper glitter starts clogging critical ship systems, the Entrepreneur crew have a much worse problem to deal with, and she has kompromat on the show’s writers. In what way does this differ from Burning Man? What’s wrong with Adam’s chili recipe? Is the ship’s computer rejecting the premise of the episode? How is Minister Campio ever gonna get a square job when he has all those crazy tats? It’s the episode that separates the Pee-Wee from The Boys.

It's about two young men (Sam and co-creator Tim Robinson) who acquire an advertising company in Detroit.

Sam talks to Wyatt about creating his new show, what it was like growing up between the United States and Ghana, and what people get wrong about Detroit.

You can watch Sam on Detroiters Tuesday's at 10:30/9:30 c on Comedy Central and on the sixth season of Veep which premieres on April 16th.

The joke that constitutes the title of this episode is absolutely the best thing in this episode, and I'm very, very sorry for ruining it, but I can't imagine titling this episode anything else. This joke is important. This joke is historically meaningful.

Suggested talking points: Justin's Nautical Secrets, Coupon Flirting, Bad At YuGiOh, Soup Rules, Shoes Off!, Guy Another Day, True Beef Season 3, Hamilton in a Hurry
