York Peppermint Patties vs Junior Mints is all about flavor. How much mint can you handle? Do you like a subtle pop while chewing something that feels like coconut? Then take a trip to York, PA and hit up that peppermint patty factory. If you like a blast of mint in a chocolate ball, than Mints the Second is who you seek. You don’t want his father, the junior is what you’re after.
Host Brian Durkin invites friend, past guest, and Facebook Poll commenter Alex Colic back on the show. They discuss the pros and cons of both candies. Before they dive into the conversation the boys chat a bit about nerdy games. After that brief aside they dive into trying the candies and weighing in. To wrap up the episode they play a new game on the show: Punderdome. Players do their best to come up with jokes based on prompts. Alex is too kind of a guest has he marvels over the dad jokes Durkin whips up in a jiffy.
York Peppermint Patties vs Junior Mints
The big difference here is the intensity of the mint flavor. York Peppermint Patty is subtle, focusing mostly on the texture. It’s like a chocolate covered coconut substitute with the hint of mint. Junior Mints on the other hand don’t mess around when it comes to fresh flavor. They pack a savage punch of mint. If you want your chocolate candies to leave you mouth feeling “oh so good”, then the Juniors Mints is where you want to be.
: Hello and welcome to when food meets funny. This is the full belly laughs podcast. I am your host Brian Durkin and today is a very special day. I’M DROPPING THIS EPISODE ON MY BIRTHDAY WHAT. WHAT. It just worked out that way. But that’s just a side note we’re getting some nice food chats going on. This is a very classic format of the show. Get ready we’re about to do, York Peppermint Patties versus Junior Mints. Let’s hit that jingle. You want to have a great time you like to laugh while you dine. That’s why you prefer half and half. It’s time to listen to Full Belly Laughs. Yes yes yes, that is right. It’s your boy B Dizzle. Now thirty-thizzle. What up? Hey what’s happening people uhhh, still me Brian Durkin.
Thank you for checking out Full Belly Laughs or making it part of your podcast routine. Today is actually my birthday. Unless you’re not listening to this when it came out then I had a birthday and hopefully I’m still alive and kicking. Killing it in the game you know. But as I record this is the eve of my birth of 30 some years ago. So it’s kind of cool. Probably going to be another five years until I guess it works out that my birthday’s on another Tuesday.
: Factoring some leap year situations in there. So yeah release the show every Tuesday morning and I don’t know when the next year it will be when this syncs up so it’s kind of cool it’s a neat little milestone moment but I have had so much going on in my life with the projects wrapping up, life things moving and shaking, exciting things happening with this podcast that I did not plan a special birthday episode. So I decided to rearrange the order in which episodes came out to feature a really fun conversation I had with a past guest and great friend of mine. Awesome contributor to all things Full Belly Laughs and soon to be contributing even more in the near future I should say at least is my good buddy Alex Colic. So he’s back on the show. He’s a big York Peppermint Patty fan in the dark. I like Junior Mints because I only eat candy when there’s no lights on. No I I’m not, before we had this conversation I didn’t really have a strong opinion either way. Kind of just liked the idea of Junior Mints versus the York Peppermint Patty and you’ll hear why. But yeah we have a nice little thorough discussion. Have some fun facts. We have some nice jokes back and forth.
: And of course he’s one of my nerd buddies. So began the conversation we go a little deep in the nerd talk. I thought this would be kind of fun to share today on my birthday simply because the story that we open our conversation with is kind of me getting super lucky at an event and you know the gods gifting me with several dollars. And you know I figured since I got that lucky gift it’s like a treat back to myself. So anyway that’s why we’re having this episode next week we have a really really fun wrap up summer episode with Anthony Baroon and Brendan Donegan. Please stay tuned for that it’ll be super good we recorded that one so long ago. So if those guys are listening I’m so sorry that that’s gotten pushed back a couple of times. We had this solo cast in there with life stuff and then we have this special episode so that’ll be coming out next week and then I’ll be all about summer foods of sorts. So be a nice little button up for getting ready for Labor Day weekend that’s for sure. So without further ado let’s just jump into the episode. If you’re a longtime listener I hope that this is an episode you like.
: Just like all of them I hope you enjoy them. I don’t make this to make your life worse. That would be so cruel. I could do it in so many more direct ways than putting out mediocre comedy content. But in any case I hope this brings you joy I hope you learn something I hope you help get yourself situated on where you feel on the raging debate of York Peppermint Patty vs. Junior Mints. You know we’re going to look back and it’s going to be one of the defining issues of 2018. I mean I read the headlines and I know that I don’t read headlines because I believe that this is the most important issue. And the other thing I believe is I’ll know what I’m talking about. So I do know a couple of things for real. I am feeling good. I had a nice day and I’m going to have a cool birthday, I’m gonna catch up with some friends. Going to chat with my girl and I’m going to put out this episode. So let’s get into it. And this is a little bit longer intro than usual. But I’ll button things up at the end. So here’s Alex Colic and me debating York Peppermint Patties versus Junior Mints.
: Alex Colic.
: What’s Up Durk?
: Welcome back. You’re one of the few guests to actually do recordings in the soon to be not so new apartment.
: Oh it’s, I’m very sad.
: Very sad but I’m happy I’m happy for you.
: Thank you.
: I’m excited for you guys.
: Thank you.
: This is, I hate to say it, but that’s probably where you should be. You know what I mean.
: Yeah it’s it’s it’s a spot. You know, for anyone that’s new to tuning in. My girlfriend already moved to L.A. and I am going to try and meet her out there sometime next year.
: That’s very exciting man. You guys are going to kill it. You’re going to kill it out there.
: She’s already living the high life. She’s got a place in Santa Monica that is way too expensive.
: Sounds amazing.
: But we talked about it before she left and it’s very similar to like when I first moved to Philly like my first apartment was way too much money but like in Center City
: So I had everything at my fingertips.
: Right, you’re super ballin’.
: Exactly. But it’s funny because at like the 9 month mark I was very tired of like drunk people yelling outside my window ya know
: I was ready to find like the neighborhood that I would stay at for a while.
: Right, yeah.
: But in any case anyone that does listen to the show a lot. You’ve probably heard Alex on past excellent episodes but you also might know him as Alex from Magnolia in the comments.
: Yeah he’s a prolific commenter on the show always has really funny and insightful answers and
: I have opinions.
: Yes exactly. You’re my friend. So it’s easy to have you on the show,I’d have you anyway, but that kind of thing is what puts you ahead of other Mazrui friends that don’t have good opinions or funny lines.
: I enjoy the topics a lot of times and you know honestly, like if I’m feeling it, I’ll really get into it, you know what I mean?
: If I’m not feeling it, I’m not just gonna, ya know, lay down a turd. I’m just gonna..
: That’s true
: You know just If I’ve got nothing funny to say I’m not going to bother because that’s
: That’s fair, there are, there are polls where you have not spoken or it takes you while to weigh in.
: Yeah that’s true.
: Well you know, I gotta think it out a bit
: That’s true, that’s true, you gotta make sure it counts. There are some people that just comment, they’re like ‘oranges’. Ya know it’s like I mean that vote counts but I’m not probably gonna read that one on the air.
: Sure, like, thanks, that’s super. Glad you like oranges.
: Yeah. I mean you were definitely heard.
: But you will probably not make the show. I mean unless the debate was, ya know, pizza versus chocolate or something you just yelled oranges. I probably would read that.
: All right. Well mission
: So yea, so we actually just saw each other this past weekend. The last, actually last time you were on the show we were talking about cards games
: Oh, yeah.
: A little bit. So, for anyone that hasn’t listened so one of the nerdier episodes, ya know we know we play board games and stuff and myself and a lot of my guests come from like the board game, card game world. So we went to a pretty baller card tournament where… To put things in perspective, normally entry fee for an event at your local game store is like 10 bucks. This was a hundred dollars but that’s because you got a random assortment of cards and they were all of these like really powerful cards some of them worth a lot of money. But you didn’t know what you’re gonna get. So it was kind of like a lottery ticket you could get crap or you could get something that was worth hundreds and hundreds of dollars.
: And Durk is a savage.
: Yeah I uhh… I had a recording that day and I saw it getting post about on Facebook and I checked with the people I was going to record with. And I’m like hey we still on today and they’re like oh no we have to cancel and I was like yes because I wanted to play but also it was just like, feeling myself.
: Like I was like I feel like I need to be at that event.
: You and Jose were unconscious. It was ridiculous. The two of them are sitting across the table from me. In a seven man draft. And okay so Nick Cost, shout out Nick Cost for the amazing idea. I think this was a first of its kind. I believe he called it the platinum draft. Basically he took a bunch of just random cards that he had a bunch of extra in his store of that he wanted to just get rid of. And then he seeded, he made these packs of 15 magical cards, right, that we draft. And then he seeded them with very rare expensive cards that could be worth from like what, a hundred bucks to like four hundred bucks.
: To like a thousand bucks. So I mean like to put things in perspective, if you’re familiar with a fantasy sports at all, it’s like a fantasy draft, but you’re gonna like open a package of cards take one pass the rest and all the stuff so what Alex is referring to is I sat next to our friend Jose, who opened a package of cards that had a 350 dollar card and a hundred dollar card. So he took the 350 passed me the hundred. Then the next package of cards I returned the favor. I opened a four hundred dollar card and a hundred dollar card so I took the four hundred and passed him the hundred. Alex just sat there getting nothing, the whole time
: The draft, I think I got about 23 bucks in value, the whole draft.
: Yes. Well it was funny, so I was fiending and I was watching the whole event and there were like 10 cards out there that were all worth like several hundreds of dollars, right. So I was watching the whole event, cause I think you peace’d out kind of early.
: Well, no I went three, two and missed top eight by one
: And then you left…
: I finished ninth place out of
: That’s right, that’s right.
: So like literally the worst thing that could happen is I play out the whole thing and I miss, Jose gets eighth and I get ninth
: But, shining, shining spot is I did beat Durk in head to head during…
: You did, you crushed me. It wasn’t even close.
: So, and you needed the win more than me because I was up
: I did.
: I was up money wise
: You were up like five hundred bucks
: Yea, at least, at least.
: It’s fine.
: So I. So I wanted to watch that.. I was feeling myself. I was like I’m real lucky, I’ll play again for another hundred bucks.
: That is sick, that is sick.
: Because I’m like I’m playing with house money.
: I’m up hundreds of dollars
: Yea 100 percent.
: So I’m like let’s.. I was getting other that were like sitting around that were like thinking about playing again. They weren’t sure. Because they were selling packs
: Yeah I saw that.
: They were selling sets.
: Yea I saw that they were trying to get rid of them.
: Yea To get rid of them because they’re just like lottery tickets, right. And like you said Nick has set these up to like move extra stock
: And put some juicy things in there so people would buy them
: Or at least try to get them. And I’m like let’s watch the top eight because they’re going to open a bunch more.
: And I’m like if they don’t open a lot of high dollar cards then there’s a lot of them out there for us to get, to buy and play right.
: So we’re watching and somebody in the top eight opens the most expensive card. Opens underground sea for anyone who cares.
: But what was crazy was as the event was going people said that that got opened already. And then so we were like wait what happened, and so then we did some more intel. Turns out that that person was like oh yea, No I never had that card. So now like the.. It was as if the top eight didn’t open any expensive cards. Like if we had thought four out of the ten were taken.
: It turns out that was true after we watched, so we were like let’s definitely play again.
: Because there’s six super expensive cards out there and there are only 20 things left to be bought.
: Somebody has a really good chance
: Where as like 18 or something like one out of three of these is going to have like a great card. So four of us got together it was like me, Frank, Evan and some guy, I can’t remember his name. Some guy, I can’t remember his name, didn’t really have the money to play he’s like, he’s like can I trade cards in. And they’re like if you trade cards and we’ll give you like 10 percent of their value, towards this.
: Because they don’t want you to do that.
: So he’s like … And then we were doing the math on the expensive cards and he finally was like screw it I’m going to do it. We were like, yes!
: Cause we could’ve just bought, we could’ve just bought the packages ourselves and open them as lottery tickets.
: But the way that they set up the event is that they made certain packages really juiced up in value.
: Because they were intended to be passed down the line.
: Right right.
: So like if we were like if we do another mini event then we kind of like hedge our bets.
: Because if any one of us opens a good pack we’ll pass it along.
: Right. So this guy agrees to do it. So it’s just four of us right. So it’s even better because it’s like usually the juicy pack has like four good cards. So like everybody will get something. First pack nobody gets anything. Second pack, Evan sitting to my left opens one of the super expensive cards. So he gets a …excuse me a.. and there’s like some super foiley holographic shiny card that he passes me. So I get like a fifty dollar credit there, Frank just misses out. I open Tundra. So I’m just balling out of control.
: I saw that. Yeah, yeah.
: That’s like a five hundred dollar card.
: So I’m like way way ahead. Somehow my Tundra pack has no other valuable cards. So I pass Frank nothing. The other guy, he gets nothing. He could barely afford to play. Then we were going to play out games, to like just to bet on.
: Poor bastard
: So somebody could try and win something else and
: And he was in a car with somebody else who had to leave right then so he didn’t even get to play. So he got nothing and didn’t get to play.
: Mistakes were made for that guy.
: Yeah it sucked. He had the opposite experience of me.
: So you’re like, you’re up like a G, for the day, maybe.
: So, like a true gambler. I of course bought another pack and lost right.
: Oh boy.
: So I spent two-eighty but I got like a thousand in cards. So yeah I made like 4 times on my money. But it’s all phantom dollars.
: You know it’s not real.
: They’re just, they exist.
: But it exists it’s like a stock or whatever. That you can turn into, you know what I mean?
: The, it saved me seven-fifty retail.
: Yeah, a hundred precent.
: Even if, if it’s like diamonds and they’re really not really worth anything
: Sure they’re just worth whatever people are willing to give you for it.
: But that’s still man like, you know the community like we’re gonna we’re going to eternal weekend, like you can do whatever you want.
: That’s true.
: It’ll let you play, so.
: So in any case I’m very lucky. I don’t know if I’m going to be.. I don’t know if fortunates going to favor me here because I took a position on our food debate, that’s maybe curious. I believe in Junior Mints but you don’t. You’re a York Peppermint Patty guy. I don’t even know that was a position one could take.
: Oh 100 percent like, York, Pennsylvania. That’s where they that’s where came from.
: That’s your opening statement.
: That’s where they came from.
: They’re uhh…I might have done a little Wiki searching earlier.Made in 1940. Junior Mints forty-eight, just saying.
: Alright, alright. Fair.
: Not the first, neither was the first ever to come out with a mint chocolate treat like that. But, the Mint, Junior Mint or rather the York mint, York Peppermint Patty was the first to get it not mushy. Every other mint chocolate candy before that came out was like a mushier, softer kind of.. And this one was the first one that had that snap when you crack it in half ya know.
: Ah-ha! Well the first snap and also mint or the first snap?
: No. The first I mean the sound, the sound, when you snap it half, you know what I’m saying? That almost crispiness to the York Peppermint Patty.
: Like a nun with a ruler.
: Yea, yea.
: Yea, for sure.
: Where is the junior mints, like I find them a little overwhelming and then you’re in a movie theater with them, I know that’s where you are supposed to eat them. And I’m just like overwhelmed with the mess and that’s how i feel about them.
: Well, yea, see that’s why I kind oo like Junior Mints they make me think of the movies and I love movies.
: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, agreed.
: York Peppermint Pattie’s just make me think of Klondike bars for some reason..
: And then I’m not thinking about York Peppermint Patties at all and I don’t know, Junior Mints is a great episode of Seinfeld and
: That’s fair
: And Seinfeld’s great.
: That’s fair.
: Although they did cause some issue, I think as long as you eat them responsibly they are a great treat for the operating theatre.
: Yea that’s right. Did it heal somebody or did it kill somebody. I forgot.
: I don’t remember the conclusion.
: I thought it like killed the infection or something. The Junior Mint like the guy ended up like healing up. They thought they were gonna lose him. I forget
: I forget the conclusion. I think it was just trapped in him forever.
: Yeah, like I’m sure, like whatever melted or whatever and they’re like, like the Peppermint like I’m sure like it killed the infection. If I’m remembering. I haven’t seen the episode in twenty years but.
: That makes sense. Lauren definitely knows that
: She’s a Seinfeld connoisseur.
: That’s, well I gotta say though commercial-wise, Junior Mints don’t exist commercials but York Peppermint Patty commercials are iconic.
: Well that’s interesting that Junior Mints didn’t need commercials to take over movie theaters.
: Good point. Good point.
: They didn’t even.. Their campaign was like get on Seinfeld.
: I’m just saying, if York peppermint Patty made little tiny ones In boxes I think they would’ve crushed your Junior Mints.
: Yeah like a York Peppermint Minis or something.
: Million dollar idea right there, you just gave it away
: Oh, yea for sure.
: For Hershey’s listening right now.
: I’ll have more ideas.
: Hershey’s is istening they’re like get it down York Peppermint Patty Minis, holy shit.
: Yeah they’re actually all the listeners for the show
: Just for to stay on the pulse for great food ideas.
: Right. Hershey
: From FBL studios.
: I love Hershey’s.I love..have you ever been to Hershey Park?
: I have I think as a kid but it’s been a really long time.
: It’s still pretty dope like it’s never a bad
: It’s till pretty great that the road leading to it is called Hershey Highway
: It’s like I mean I know that they need to call it that but they also didn’t need to call it that.
: Yeah, yeah. Which came first the horrible name or the you know
: True, true
: The like hmmm. Now I dig Hershey. It’s a cool, it’s a very, very like very almost like uhhh
: Dutch Wonderland?
: No like ummmm
: Is that like racist now? Now that i think about it.
: Dutch Wonderland?
: Yeah. Is it literally is the purpose of that place. Just like look at these weird Dutch people is that the concept? Again I haven’t been there since I was a child.
: Well Pennsylvania Dutch.
: Oh yeah that’s true. Yea, yea.
: So like maybe to people who don’t know Pennsylvania Dutch, they would be like why are they making fun of Pennsylvania Dutch but the Pennsylvania Dutch are just like this is us this is how we live. You know I mean like.
: Yea, that’s fair. But Hershey is like a legit actual theme park.
: Yea, yea for sure… This is kind of what I was going for it’s kind of Stepford Wives-y. You know like that whole town because he built, he built Hershey, to like support the people that worked in the plant. You know what I mean.
: Sure, that makes sense
: And it’s kind of wild, you know I mean, it’s a wild just kinda going and visiting there you know. It’s neat but the park is super legit like..
: Like they do, they do it all like Christmas time with all like millions of lights and
: I heard about that.
: Yeah it’s really awesome. You know if you can stand the cold but it’s pretty awesome.
: It’s pretty awesome.
: Who makes Junior Mints? I don’t even know.
: I don’t know
: Where we got the box.
: They’re not Hershey. Yeah that’s funny. We finally planned ahead this time on Full Belly Laughs, and we actually, we actually have the food to sample. No, this just says It’s peanut free and gluten free so.
: Well there you go. We got that.
: Huzzah! Take that Peppermint Patty.
: Maybe it’s on the, is there a front of the box?
: There’s a hundred, only a hundred and thirty calories per serving. But there’s 12 servings in this box and there’s only four pieces.
: Wow. Well this is a hundred and fifty calories per, for one here so.
: If I eat twelve pieces I will get fifty percent of my daily sugar. They now actually include the percentage value for sugar. They finally got them to do that?
: Yeah, I think well because Keto is such a thing now like people are so on board for that. Like me, so this is like a treat.
: I’m trying to be Mr.Keto and I managed to lose six pounds between doctor visits and I’m not..
: Dude it’s like so true, that’s why I get so annoyed with politics as it’s like nobody actually cares about… Like the issue…I understand you care about the issue, not you Alex but the royal you.
: But nobody else cares. You know what I mean
: Yeah. yeah, right.
: Like I guess to use this example it’s like there are still plenty of people that like hate gays.
: Oh sure.
: They just finally got convinced that them marrying doesn’t affect them.
: And more importantly they can make money off it.
: Right right.
: So, it’s like you know all these companies know how toxic sugar is for you.
: Yeah, yeah.
: But it’s only after like a movement of people are like we don’t buy any products that don’t tell us that.
: It’s like a s*** now we gotta do it.
: Yeah. No you’re a hundred precent right.
: You gotta put your dollar where your issue is
: No, you’re right.
: That’s been the F.B.L. political segment. Very uncanny
: That’s outrageous.
: But I haven’t eaten dinner. I’m real excited to have the stuff. I’m like actually don’t even remember how to open a Junior Mints box right now.
: Just, you go get topside, they got the whole slot…
: I’m gonna trust you to do it. Since I will fill some time and I’m afraid I’m going to destroy it while I talk
: Here we go. Here we go with a little tab
: There’s like a special tab. It’s funny. I have a feeling from this tasting that I might be hooked on like Junior Mints when I go to the movies now cause I’ve never really had them.
: Oh, is that right?
: Even know why. I’m pretty sure I don’t like York Peppermint Patty’s but who knows? Oh here’s a good question. How many junior mints should I have?
: I think to start one, start one.
: Oh, I got two here.
: Well because the York Peppermint Patty is so much bigger
: These are like kind of gummy
: Really soft
: Super soft. Crazy soft. I don’t remember them being that soft.
: It could be because it’s a little warm and humid but
: That’s true.
: It was in my house it wasn’t in the car or anything so.
: Hmmmm…Yea, wow….They’re pretty delightful.
: They are delightful. …. I mean it’s candy for god sake.
: It never ceases to amaze me how many bad candies there. Like Good & Plenty is disgusting.
: No it’s garbage. Who would eat that?
: It’s so bad.
: You know me…
: There’s people that eat it but it’s like, I mean.
: Well my whole thing with like fruit based jelly candies, in a world where chocolate exists, why would you eat that garbage at all? Like any kind of jellies or even Jelly beans. I find them completely pointless. There’s chocolate people, I don’t understand.
: Well it’s so funny because I, maybe this is what should have been the theme for you coming over, but I am actually not a big fan of chocolate.
: I know I heard I’ve heard you say it.
: I choose the fruit desserts over, over chocolate.
: Well, like a dessert, I’m down like a good fruity tart or pie or strawberry shortcake.
: Yeah like, I’ll take an apple pie over a chocolate cake every time.
: But that’s because, also it’s like lighter like you get like a chocolate peanut butter pie or cake or something, like that’s a heavier sweeter thing going on. So like I’m down a hundred precent with that, much like candy, like if I’m going to sit down and eat like.. like a candy bar.
: You sound like Iverson for a second like that, ‘we talkin’ about candy’
: We talking about candy. Jelly beans? Nobody eats Jelly beans. I mean Peanut M&M’s In a world where Peanut M&M’s exist I don’t understand why anyone would eat, like, I’d rather have a like you said a Good & Plenty. Who would do that?
: Yeah true. Now how do you eat your Peanut M&M’s? Oh also I’m under the assumption that Peanut M&M’s are strictly better than regular M&M’s
: In, in my opinion
: Yea, same.
: Cause there’s peanut in them.
: Yeah, peanut, yea.
: Honest to God. I’m a one at a time..
: I think we, didn’t we talk about this? I feel like…
: I don’t know. So I, this is the way I found out that I eat my Peanut M&M’s like a psychopath. So..
: Oh yea? You’re just like ..
: No, I, one at a time but I suck the chocolate dry until I have a peanut that has never had chocolate and I just eat a peanut.
: I dig that. I also do that.. Like sometimes, ya know, I’ll get impatient.
: Sure, ya chomp. I chomp.
: You know.
: Like especially in a movie theater you can make a bag of M&M’s last forever in a movie.
: That is the cool part of the Peanut M&M.
: That I think was a hack that I figured out early on as a child. I was like I can make this Candy last a really long time.
: Just regular M&M’s to me like are like (snaps finger) gone.
: Gone like these Junior Mints because they disappeared fast but I feel very refreshed. I have a nice little tingle in my mouth.
: It is.
: Head plugs.
: It isn’t pleasant. I feel like if I were at a house that whole Boxtel
: I just
: Would have been
: Like it would have been like inhaling Zema or something like
: Yeah. A bit much for sure.
: That. So
: Fuck yeah let’s see what it feels
: Like to have a full York Peppermint Patty.
: Oh yeah
: This is exciting.
: If this is meant to then I might be I might feel the same thing once I’m done this.
: All right.
: But then again it’s like
: You’ve got it you’ve
: Got to get
: The little
: Record. Well it’s
: A little bit but this little
: Boy’s them here. So
: She had to crack it. That’s how you eat it.
: It’s been cracked. Unger say it’s hot out in here because this was
: I think the Germans were like Milty this
: Feels more like a candy.
: Right. What
: We’re you
: Know the
: Taste like candy this
: Well it is like.
: Tastes like mushy Mint. But there is something about this like coconut esque filling
: Well as.
: It’s almost
: Got the
: Consistency of
: Of a
: Man do you.
: Do you
: I don’t
: Have one of these in ages and I’m really feeling
: You are in
: Right now
: Really really feeling. I’m a happy camper right now.
: I think I’m I think Nork. There’s a better candy
: But he
: Wouldn’t enjoy
: It as much in
: Theater like that’s a
: Better theater
: Experience Broadway
: The taste
: Regime it’s better because
: It was
: Like look
: You want me. We got men. You know
: Argue that
: Because of the crime here
: Is this taste
: More like a candy bar. So then I
: Start to think I could have a better candy bar. Interesting. I’m like why don’t I just actually get some new get happenin some

: Every everything like Airwolf fruit like
: The whole
: Thing and
: Science is
: Taking it’s pretty
: Wild. It’s like

: You know even
: Labs were
: Doing it like
: Farmers were
: Doing like corn became corn. I mean corn
: Was not corn
: You know for 40
: Years ago. Well it was
: But it
: Didn’t. It didn’t look
: Like anything like
: What we
: Today and
: Then there
: They kept
: And crossbreeding
: And then
: They finally
: Got it to this you know
: That we get now. You know it’s so
: Know it’s fine. You can obviously take that stuff too far and you know have situations like the fly but you can also make something beautiful like a Honeycrisp apple.
: I was just going to say
: To god
: Crisp was right about to
: Come out of my
: Before he
: You said it I’ll make the
: Honeycrisp back.
: It’s so good. It is.
: Not fair
: Not right
: And it can’t
: Be good for you like
: Got probably
: More sugar in
: It. What would you say like
: Look legit sugar you
: Like it
: Is so
: Sweet and
: Perfect that
: The pop
: When you bite
: Into a your
: Or your
: Batter a Honeycrisp
: A lot
: Of the best
: Of great
: Apples out there this past year. Now
: Maybe Yet earlier this year. Now. Over a year. This isn’t that important for me to take care about the song but I got introduced to the Sweet Tango Sweet Tango
: A green apple and
: A great name. It is a great
: Believe me the taste of that apple lives out to its
: That sounds
: It all
: It’s like
: A great bar
: And the Sweet Tango
: You know.
: Dough. It’s like the moves you put on something
: And so
: Good. I play some games for
: It and yeah I try a new game.
: Boy. It’s called ponder
: Dome. I bought it for the show maybe a year ago
: A long time ago and we’ve never played it so I ran to try it.
: How we’re going to play it on the show. It’s a game. It’s
: A party game where you tell dad
: Jokes and
: You flip over topics and you try to like
: Write down your favorite
: And you submit it to the group kind of like apples to apples
: Or cosmos. Where are you going to use the decks
: To try and come up with dad jokes on the fly.
: This is the first time ever doing it and recording this one take. So you
: If it’s going to
: Fail horribly.
: It’s probably going to fail horribly. It also
: Could be
: Great. We
: You got
: Could modify the rules. Who
: Knows. But this is
: A full belly
: So we’re going to pull
: From each
: I don’t know why you’re supposed to do that but it says that we have the courtroom
: Of the
: Courtroom and baking
: And immediately I already can tell. The problem with the scheme which
: You want
: To save this
: For the live show is I can keep talking like this.
: Fill that air. But that means I’m not thinking of. Which is pretty brutal. You know but who knows
: You got. We can just
: Workshop the
: Joke. The
: The people’s
: Bakery and the people’s bakery. I like that. Yeah.
: Work. Yeah.
: You know you’re going to get served some justice. Some justice cakes. Yeah. I’m trying to think of
: Law and order
: Pun with the yellow on. There should be a lot here
: Because both these things have a lot of things about it. Oh I got you. The you know this woman she was accused of a crime but in the courtroom they quit her said they let her go
: I mean
: Because a leader
: Is like a measurement
: Is never used in baking. Why would you ever use a leader unless
: We’re in
: In France making
: Vats of something.
: Yeah yeah.
: You took
: A swing bro.
: Oh this guy. The utensil was trying a good a better deal in the courtroom. He got a teaspoon or a policeman. I don’t know which one’s funnier or cringe here.
: Cringe when
: You’re killing
: It right
: I’m doing OK. There’s there’s some there’s some dad jokes to be had
: Out there.
: I have many friends
: Are going to enjoy this.
: It. Actually we’re going to
: Have to get this
: Because I
: Think it’s a failing
: Without like
: We’ve been playing this game for
: Years. Exactly exactly. Yeah.
: Oh I
: Got one. I think it’s it’s formulating or maybe not. Law and donuts and men so this this dog. He he got found guilty in the courtroom. So they sent him to the pound cake.
: All right. That might be your
: I did. So
: It’s so tough.
: You know I hope this segment gives people a better appreciation
: For standup comedy.
: It’s like it’s pretty hard to come out with jokes on the fly first get
: Some news. New topics here we’ll just roll with this
: The whole
: Time was brief on religion
: Religion religion and playing videogames was something we actually both know a lot about
: Do know
: Something about both things
: Yeah yeah actually
: You know that was part of Jesus’s plan. He knew he was going to get crucified which was and he knew that because he he put it in the cheek for it. He was just like Uptown. Now my left now on the right. Strong strong
: Strong and just doing the whole cross directional thing.
: Oh man
: Diagonal spear the whole thing fortnight
: Before Christmas
: Yeah I like that. Yeah.
: Lowing and Freebody.
: Yeah. I was playing. I was playing this video game and it was this dreydl videogame. And when I last just had Passover.
: That’s like you could just. You should
: Rabbits available for anyone that needs a bar mitzvah
: Yeah that’s
: I do. It’s also the reason I got this game is I do like your writing really corny dad jokes.
: A good joke exercise thing. I think
: I told of on the podcast before I told them I’m on stage to many grooms but there is one that I have that’s like. What do you call it American bumblebee that makes connections a USP. Yeah it’s
: Solid. Yeah.
: That’s good.
: My best Dad joke is probably how does a Jamaican jeweler threaten someone die. Mom
: Said it’s horrible.
: As horrible
: It’s really that white
: Horrible I
: Anyone might still be listening. There’s a whole wealth
: Of stuff we could do here with religion.
: You know if you had
: Any games
: Actual funny people here they could probably do stuff
: That’s fair
: That’s fair.
: Oh I was gonna I put in this video game. I got this new cartridge and it was it was like the adventures of Muhammad but I eventually gave it up because I could never see where my character was onscreen. Well done.
: Well done sir.
: Thank you.
: That one. That is so
: To hit
: All the
: Very it’s provocative. But it was safe.
: Yes it is respectful
: It was respectful
: For you.
: Yet provocative.
: You’re not allowed to draw depicts Muhammad.
: That’s right
: To think of some other ones. Oh I play this game. It was pretty
: Sweet. It was it was really remind me of like Tony Hawk. A great soundtrack. It was the adventures of Buddha. It was just nirvana. The whole time
: You’re crushing it
: For a guy who’s to Russia
: Crushing the bad
: Destroying destroying
: Destroy you’re not getting in on the action.
: Maybe this. You know I was
: Thinking of a dungeon
: Dhanda dragon
: Style dungeon dandy. Yeah.
: You have
: Like you know
: Intersections. Yeah. You say there’s a faction that would be an interesting day and the thing was
: Like a
: I’ll give it
: A 4.
: I’m being generous.
: Yeah let’s see religion. That’s a thing that people have opinions about. I had something
: But it’s pretty dark and it’s not formulated outside to be careful.
: Yeah yeah.
: Workshop it.
: Yeah there’s something with kids but I haven’t figured it out.
: Story. P.a
: Man. Yeah.
: With the Catholic Church Jesus Christ
: And M-M.
: Man. That is insane Mike.
: Like yeah
: It’s crazy.
: It is crazy
: This still happens and it’s been
: All right.
: It’s not funny. No it’s not. You

: Asking around
: One more

: Have done
: When I got married.
: Yeah my my tinder profile goes into hiding when I get married hiding. That’s such a weird topic.
: Is weird.
: Doesn’t have the the play the other ones do. It’s tough hide

: Know it
: Yeah. So
: If I
: Don’t sound like an idiot
: Will allow it on his site. So yeah all of it. I can’t see why wouldn’t be added to be pretty bad.
: The shackles were you’d lose interest. But yeah basically for anyone that’s made it through all the dad jokes you got rewarded with an exclusive that
: Is going to be an exciting com from auks coming onto the website as well as other cool stuff that will tease
: As you get closer.

: Minute so Alex how can people stay in touch with you now. Oh
: Well I
: Have a
: Mildly entertaining
: Social media presence
: Under Alex Colla
: See or
: I think
: I was an
: Adopter of
: Twitter. Like
: I only use Twitter when I get
: Got a
: Head and
: Just write
: It down so
: Like three thirty this morning when you wake up
: To go to the bathroom and you’re like
: Ah weddings and Heidi I got it. Yeah. Yeah that’s when you’ll see
: That’s what you

: Find a
: It boring.
: Mean you just
: If you
: Want to
: Random people like
: For years
: Because they
: Find me amusing.
: And I’m like ok thanks.
: You want to see some of Alex’s best work which is usually responding to our polls. We usually do polls about future topics on the show like peppermint patties versus Jasmines on the Facebook page. That’s where I like most of us polls live. So be sure to follow football there if you want to. You know the action not always to be a leftover
: It’s always
: A good
: Yeah. And the conversations get pretty fun sometimes get playfully heated. It’s always like pretty hilarious. I constantly and thank you all these people that I’ve done I constantly people come up to me like that don’t comment. But Le like legit love reading those
: That’s good to hear.
: They get a kick out of it. Like they love all the opinions
: They always crack up. I
: Have tons of people me.
: Yeah yeah
: That’s actually I
: Really great.
: Feedback I get.
: That’s super. That’s really
: Can never listen. But man when people are Youssouf versus sad that she’s hilarious.
: It’s super
: Yeah for sure for sure. Super cool. Thanks for being here. All right.
: Buddy. Yep. There you go fam that’s the epi. There you have it. Boom Shaka laca. That’s right. In the books. Thank you Alex Karg for coming over and doing the show and he was gracious enough to pick up the snacks ahead of time which was great for thought that you will not always have on this podcast because I could use a team more than me to remember to do everything all the time. But you know those days hopefully will be upon us sooner rather than later as I build the full belly empire. Any case. Yeah Alex is great on the show we had a really good time riffing on the dome and chatting about Magic the Gathering cards and debating food stuff and I’m really excited to have him contribute to the website. So I hope you are too. He has some really really funny stuff that he says in our Facebook polls. Related to the episode topics and I’m hoping that carries over into the writing. And I think it will because he’s a funny guy and I think you’re really going to enjoy reading them. So lots of awesome content coming out in 2019. Alex is going to be a part of that. We got a lot of other cool stuff happening to the daily blogs. There should be some other really cool stuff that I don’t want to say just yet because in case it doesn’t work I’ll hate to have something that won’t exist.
: But just a teaser. My goal is to have daily blog content daily video content and daily audio content. So get ready. It should be the year of the belly. In any case I’m sure the year of the belly’s actually what 1996 winner of that movie came out I’m not really sure. Regardless there are some other things I want Alina. Oh that’s right. So since I kind of pushed this episode up in the release schedule on the fly eggs I thought of all the ones in the bank. I made the most sense to release on my birthday. I didn’t run a York Peppermint Patty versus junior Minns poll ahead of time because I don’t remember everything all the time. So we’re going to do. You made this far in the episode. You got an opinion on one of these two send us and I’m using the royal us for myself. Send me a message for my last dot com use the contact form or hit me up on social phobia laughs fake Facebook Instagram Twitter and Pinterest. All that Jazz for my last or all that if you see this episode shared somewhere right. Like if it’s shared from the full bailiff’s page comment there are collect those comments. Now if a friend just happens to plug this episode doesn’t tag football last for tag me.
: I really not see your comment so just be sure to like the actual football last page and you won’t miss any polls. But on this episode draps comment below with your opinion on your Pattie’s vs junior mints and I’ll feature you next week on leftovers so that’ll be really fun. We’ll hopefully have a robust leftovers section of the pot. So that’s what’s happening man. I am doing a stand up show in September mid September I believe it’s in the New Hope area. We believe the day is in the teens and I believe I’ll be working out some cool new stuff while doing the old classics. I do know that that is one of the worst plugins possible. I am letting you know that there could be something that you can or can’t go to and there was no real good information. But that’s only gotten right in front of me right now. I need to follow up on that and make sure I actually know what’s going on. In other news there isn’t any Kind of blew my load early on this episode I set everything up front and ended up real good right there I’m just feeling nice and just want to keep chatting but you know how it is. So I guess this is. This is the end of this episode. I can’t believe it.
: So yeah. Now you guys can get a personal update. So he made this for I’ll let you know what’s going on. Aha. This is why I want to say so I’m still moving. And if you’re listening to this episode even if it’s not the day it came out I still have plenty of furniture and items in my apartment that I need to sell. I am downsizing like crazy to put it in perspective. I currently have a two bedroom to myself and I will be moving into a studio with my girlfriend. So that means everything must go and pricing it to go because if I don’t get rid of it before Halloween then it’s on the curb. Right. So if you are interested in a bed set in dressers in couches sofa couches desks kitchen where podcast equipment. I even have four or five more mikes that I can sell. And now some other weird gear too. So again use the same way to contact me for my last role as social phobia alas dot com. There’s a contact form that’s real easy to find if you are in need of anything to furnish your home to flesh out your kitchen to store things a bunch of different drawers and boxes you can store things in style all the way to pockets and if you’re trying to get some stuff on the cheap to kickstart your little pods can situation.
: Hit me up. I got stuff that needs to go. So that’s that’s the situation that’s why I wanted to tease the very end here. That was the plug. That was worth staying for you if you made it this far then guess what. You get to get in on the action. Those fools that left early they thought the episode was over. Now they miss out on a microphone splitter for a dollar or two dollars. I’ll take whatever you’ll give me. I’ll also have to make sure I didn’t already sell that piece of equipment for now. In all seriousness what I really need to say at this moment is thank you so much for listening and hanging out with me. You can do anything with your time but you chose to listen to full blast instead of music instead of other podcasts or instead of your own thoughts. And that takes a lot of bravery. Which is a funny way to say bravery but now it’s just it takes consideration whether you know it or not and I want you to know that I appreciate it and appreciate you for spending your time full buy laughs. So thank you very much. Have a great day. Have a great week. I’m going to have a good birthday and I’ll see you next time when food meets funny ol boy laughs Good bye lovey.
