  • I think this one is my favorite, so far. Kurt was better on YMIW than he was on WTF, by miles!

    You are delusional if you think I’m not going to use “Are you the word X?” in everyday conversation. That is a perfect post-9 turn of phrase.

  • @Liam Ha! Yeah, my wife is about to kill me with the FIVE hundred WEEKS thing. Yesterday she was like, “If you don’t stop saying FIVE hundred WEEKS, no sex for FIVE hundred WEEKS!” I had to pull over I was laughing so hard.

    Btw, when you say FIVE hundred WEEKS it’s probably that much funnier, what with whatever form of the British accent you have. “I say, old chap, would you care for a spot of FIVE hundred WEEKS!”

  • @Josh Thanks, I’ll check it out! I’m not religious myself but I find people’s beliefs interesting

    Haha I dropped the five hundred weeks thing in a conversation the other day, forgetting my friend had no idea what I was going on about

  • amillennialists? amillenialism. Amillennialists believe in amillennialism. That’s a particularly amillennialistic point of view. Amillennialistically speaking, of course.

    Whee!

  • Yo @Liam! The best site online for religious discussion, I think, is beliefnet.com — I took a quick look, they’ve got some cool articles on the rapture and what it’s all about in the Christian faith. I’m not Christian myself, but check out: http://www.catholic.com/tracts/the-rapture. Turns out, you’re right, most Christians are “amillennial”. Which is a pretty cool word, if you ask me.

  • Hahaha, “are the word fuck”, amazing.

    I’d actually heard both the ventriloquist prank story on How Was Your Week, and the rumspringa story on This American Life, and not made the connection that it was the same guy. I won’t make that mistake again, Kurt is hilarious.

    Just to make it religiously weird, I don’t think Catholics believe in the Rapture do they? Not in that literal good-people-being-zapped-up-and-other-people-being-Left-Behind sense. Neither do the Eastern Orthodox Christians, Quakers, European Protestants in general. I could be wrong but I think it’s more of an American thing, the idea got popular over on your side of the Pond (Atlantic Pond not Pacific Pond) in the 19th century and then became even more widespread in the 20th through Evangelical movements and stuff

  • Hey Pete, got to see you on your last show at wiseguys. You were amazing and I gave you a group hug with my friend after the show.

    Quick question: If the guy that plays dr spaceman on 30 rock dug a hole that prevented your death, would you say to him “Key pit, Chris P.!:

  • Hey Pete! Great Ep! Hilarious! Two things:

    First, it turned out that, btw, being Ted Williams’ head is WAY harder than even you guys talked about. Think: “Batter up!”

    And second, there are actually TWO laws in the Independent United Republic of Usher: Law #1. You have to take your panties off the second you arrive. And Law #2. Anyone can come to the IURU, but you have to be wearing panties.

  • Oh, my god. The dating prank tale might just be the best ever.

    “It’s him.” – As though it’s lore amongst her friends or something.

    Completely on board with the whole scent/memory/attraction thing too. Smell is a totally powerful memory trigger.
