It's Valentine's Day, so that means...oh, no sorry that was a couple of weeks ago. Well, whatever, we can still help out those gift givers looking for something special for that special someone, especially specializing on Valentines. It's special.
So many tangents this week. The guys try their best to talk about turning Brett's talent of dream interpretation into a business but quickly get distracted by just about everything. Cheese, what vitamins do, dial up internet, how dated movies are, and what the HELL is the comic Mark Trail about?!?!? Plus, Eben is over Taco Bell's tricks and ploys. Ability to sell their idea: C-. Ability to entertain: A+
Exploring our oceans, bragging about your knowledge of the Bermuda triangle, Jaw IV, getting sucked through an air tube, self-checkout at the grocery store, best Train songs, and drinking water are just a few of the topics that Brett and Eben get into on this weeks episode of What's the Big Idea.
We get a whole range of listener questions here at Cut of the Jib. So it wasn't surprising when we were asked by a young, new, hotshot lawyer about what to name his new law firm. Well, guess what! When you are the best god damn pet lawyer in the biz, it doesn't matter.
Brett and Eben look at three potential inventions and discuss which will come first. A shower with a toliet in it, edible dinnerware, or a bed you can have sex with. The last one is weird and was not the winner. Plus, Eben wants new rules on Xmas music and why it may be a good idea to learn a poem.
The End is Nigh! The End is Nigh! So why not come on down to our Survival warehouse, where we teach YOU the skills needed to survive any type of disaster? Zombie apocalypse? We have real zombie robots to bite you on command. Incoming tsunami? We have a flooded city scape specially suited to fit your needs. Children of the Corn scenario? We can't help you with that!
Plus the guys explain why we need to get rid of snail mail. Save a tree, you know? And learn a hobby for gosh sakes!
Or more accurately, surviving against a shark for an hour, or 5 Grizzly Bears for 3 days. It's a would-you-rather where the stakes could not be higher. Unless we were actually forced to choose one of those two, and not just talking about it hypothetically. The stakes would be higher then. .
We are all running a little bit slower post Thanksgiving feast, so Brett and Eben are here to help with their new big idea: The best damn energy drink out there. Does it have magical powers? Does it last longer than any other drink out there? Does it come with a clever tag line? Does it come in a fancy bottle? Hey, what's with all the questions? Plus a whole lot more, like taking a break from political talk and maybe it being time for you to retire those sweat pants.
