  • He does, but if you want to get rid of him you have to trick him into spelling out his name with his own ejaculate. Even if he WANTED to, he only ever has enough to make it to the “p”.

  • It IS uncanny how Ralph Macchio “looks like a slightly underslept 28 year old” at 51. Last time I saw him “on screen” was like 5 or 6 years ago at the end of the “No More Kings” video “Sweep the Leg.”

    Eight is Enough should have been the show the Duggar family was forced to watch. And Benjamin Button used as a verb? Awesome.

    I so want a bag of Route 11 Mamma Zuma’s Revenge habanero chips right now….

  • Thank you for bringing up cum trees!!! The parking lot of the office where I work is FULL of them! Every year when they bloom, and I go to leave work you get a feeling like every one in the parking lot is darting eyes at each other and feeling awkward!

  • Hi Chris,

    Long time listener, occasional commenter. I just want to let you know… I’m the one that eats the Jalapeño potato chips. I love ‘em.

  • @Bond, James Bond: I foresee a wonderful, but short career as a porn pardoy title writer in your future.

    I would offer up OctomomPussy, but the thought of that just gives me douche chills….

  • First off, really funny episode guys.

    Second, MEGA SPOILER ALERT with the Skyfall/M situation!?! I guess I should have seen the movie already but damn it Kroll… damn. it.

    But seriously the rest of this episode was great.

  • Love it when they talk about people being jerks on social media. It’s fascinating to me, too. Whenever people go out of their way to insult me on my YouTube videos, I post the same reply: “I apologize that my attempt at entertaining people impacted your life in such a negative way. Hopefully, being mean on the Internet helped get things back on track.”

  • Best part/Worst part about this episode….trying not to laugh out loud at work so that I don’t get asked:

    Supervisor- “What’s so funny?”
    Me- “Not Cum jokes!”

  • There is a cum cookbook. I only know because someone posted it on a message board telling me in response to “What awesome meal should I make tonight. Inspire me.”

    BAM. Semen cookbook.

    Gross.

  • I’d love it if Chris could make all Nerdist podcasts a spoiler zone, with a zero tolerance for spoiler alerts or those who ask for them.

    I’m so tired of someone on a podcast having seen a film or TV show and feeling as though they have to hold back because someone might not like it. In my opinion, as soon as a show/film has aired anywhere it’s expected to be discussed freely.

    It takes away from the conversational, relaxed vibe of podcasts when the audience has that much influence.

  • You know the whole thing about people crying “SPOILERS!!!!111ELEVENTY” that just singes my taint? The bratty, 6 year old way it’s often said.

    “Little one, Santa Claus is just your mother and I spending every hard earned dollar we make, that doesn’t go to sheltering, clothing and stuffing food into your noise tube, to spoil your sorry ungrateful ass.”

    “Uh, dad, SPOILERR!”

    You can tell me EVERYTHING about a movie or show I’ve never seen. No matter how new or dated it is. You know why? Because until I see it unfold before my eyes, your second-hand recounting doesn’t amount to squat.

    Not that your version of, and excitement over (or lack thereof), what you saw isn’t enough to clue me in, it just doesn’t ruin anything. Listening to you blather about it isn’t as earth-shattering as experiencing it for myself and drawing my own conclusions. And I’ll bookmark and footnote your point of view as I watch.

    Plus, if I’m going to drop an asinine amount of monies on a summer blockbuster, I’d rather walk into it with my eyes open and with a pre-conceived want to enjoy it. Spoilers help with that.

    *jumps off soapbox*

  • While we’re talking about our most embarrassing moments (with many of them being related to masturbation), I’m going to tell you guys mine, which I’ve never told anyone. I once ejaculated on a cat. Like, a feline. Of course I don’t need to tell you that I’m not proud of that.

  • Matt, I’m surprised you didn’t mention the best “agency-provided receptacle” bar none: Miss Moneypenny! I love you Naomie! (yes, I know they didn’t go there according to canon). One of the best episodes ever. Thanks, guys. #ScarySpice4me

  • I think Anne does have a bit Lisa Simpson in her. There is a reason her fans still refer to her Queen of Genovia. She’s just has her air about her that says, faintly, “I love you all, but I’m better than you.” However, she is in no way a bitch. I’ve NEVER heard a single story of her being mean in anyway. She’s a vocal supporter of gay rights. She replied to a male “reporter” for an entertainment show asking about the Catwoman fitness plan with “Why? Are you trying to fit into a catsuit?” (Okay. So ONE instance of her being a bitch. But, in my opinion, it was justified.) For Les Mis, she had to drop 25 pounds to play dying Fantine. Every time she’s asked about it, she will not say what she did and says her methods were life-threatening (“I didn’t do it to look pretty. I did to look like I was dying.) and doesn’t want to glamoroize it in anyway whatsoever, because she knows she’s a role-model and she takes that seriously.

    I agree with Nick. She has a great personality, she has a great sense of humor, I’ve heard nothing but good things about her, but she just has this slight air about her that makes her a bit unrelatable.

  • This was a great podcast. I liked that it didn’t delve into personal history too much, because it was a revisit so would be covering old ground. Chatting about current events and trivia made it seem like a Hostful but with a new point of view. Please do more like this with returning guests!

  • This episode was especially funny!!! Be sure to have Nick Kroll back on more often! On an unrelated note, I enjoy the laughter of Kyle in the background of the shows, his laugh just kills me.

  • Those duck dynasty guys live here in Monroe, LA. From what I understand they built it from the ground up, I don’t really know why, but it seems that a bunch of people in Louisiana got reality shows.
