  1. Here’s one I forgot about on the podcast!

    During my summer break from college one year, I temped. They offered a “general labor” job, and I figured I could handle that for one day. So I drove out to a hot warehouse to do some backbreaking manual labor all day while being yelled at.

    By lunch I was so exhausted and dehydrated, I used my break time to walk to a nearby Giant Eagle to buy a giant jug of apple juice. I drank it all at once.

    Not sure if you’ve ever tried drinking that much apple juice at once, but while it’s delicious going down, it’s turbulent in most other ways. So I had to finish the rest of my heavy lifting with what I’ve misheard Cat Steven’s lyrics as “bad apple gas”.

    I didn’t go back the next day.

  2. another great one. lots of laughs.


    i’ve noticed in the many years i’ve known Eric, a lot of his comedy deals with legs. i vaguely recall the phrase “sex with my leg” coming up. it’s true: head exploding is hack; leg exploding, GOLDEN.

    a bucket of spaghetti: hilarious and delicious. i’d eat that. sorry.

    can’t wait for that Hecklevision gig! hope a riot doesn’t erupt.
