The boob isn’t a reference to our guest, comedian PJ, but make sure to introduce him properly. Joel doesn’t, as he’s too busy telling his story of a drunken musical celebrity feel-up that happened many years ago. But would anyone feel-up current musical celebrity Britney Spears? After a limp and lethargic performance on the recent MTV Awards, she still has her fans though, in particular the biggest homo in America, who has to be heard to be believed. Also, 9/11 memories, getting stalked in World of Warcraft, a fantasy football update and The King of Kong – the best movie about Donkey Kong – ever.

Nothing like having our first and favorite guest, PJ back in the studio. And he’s just back from the Ratt/Poison concert. How have the hair metal girls of the 80s held up? PJ updates us. There’s also a ton of Death Pool activity, as Joel makes a late summer surge for the title once again. Will Soupy Sales see 2008? Joel hopes not. Plus, the Simpsons Movie is out and the guys have seen it (except Corey). Does it live up to 18 years of hype? Is it more like an old Simpson or a new Simpsons? Why did “Mr. Move Critic”, Corey, not even see the damn thing? Also, PJ loves The Varsity, Food Network HD, and old fogies kill baseball.

PJ, the dog lover
The Roast continues with final Roaster, PJ, as the bald monster goes Godzilla over the attendees, roasters and especially Corey and Joel. PJ surveys the audience and finally uncovers the show’s true demographic. Then Joel steps up to fight back, but it’s a feeble attmept. His best lines are reserved for German Superfan Nils, whom Joel blames a for lack of preparation. Hey, you babysit a 6’2 nerd for four days and tell me how many good jokes you can write. The evening concludes with Corey and his goodtime, sushine comedy, accusing one comic of smoking crack and imploring another to kill his wife. Corey really calls the kettle black with bald jokes and fat jokes, but unlike most guys they actually go over. Like most Roasts, it’s a funny, good-spirited time – only this one has less good-spirits. (Note: Part 1 of the Roast is show #112)

After being maligned and talked about for the last few weeks, our friend and comedian PJ, returns to the show. It gets quite tense, as PJ and Joel recently went on the road together and an argument ensued over the comsuption of “hot mustard sauce” in a moving automobile. Joel thinks it stunk the joint up awful, and PJ thinks Joel is a pussy who can’t eat anything spicy. Corey piles on, as he has been long-critical of Joel’s eating habits, and the argument escalates until someone storms out of the studio. We also read one of our wildest fan letters ever. It’s so outrageous we can’t even say the author’s name on the air but it sure is funny. Plus, PJ and his “sure thing”, Joel hosts a black comedy night, the death pool goes down to the wire, and breast reduction – a crime against humanity. Our first guest makes his best appearance yet. Listen now!

PJ researches for the show
It’s part 2 of the anniversary show and there’s more mayhem. J. Chris Newberg plugs in and rocks out his musical comedy. We do more shots and the whole thing begins to unravel. The capper is a ferocious, hilarious roasting by PJ. Corey and Joel take it right between the eyes as the big guy spills his hatred all over the stage. PJ saves his best for German superfan, Nils; who traveled all the way across the Atlantic to hear Nazi jokes. Also, Sal Demilio entertains, we meet Bart – the owner of Club Bart, Bill Bushart sits down and girls take their tops off, or do they? It’s a booty-shaking finale to the best night ever.

Sal performs (top) and PJ enjoys a brewski (below)
The first guest ever returns – it’s PJ! The big gorilla helps the guys recap the wild show #53, skewers Super Bowl XL and describes banging girls with MS. Later, pro movie reviewer Corey takes the hatchet to Joel’s roommate’s art film. Is it thumbs up, or middle finger up for Kristina? Also, Joel invades Jimmy Kimmel Live, Super Bowl celebrity sightings, and Pittsbugh sucks (the city, not the team). Don’t bang with cowboy boots on.

Really old PJ pic. He still looks the same!
Our good friend and fellow comic PJ B. sits in, for a rowdy session of ball breaking hijinx. Corey and Joel deliver a “heartfelt” message to the podcasting community. We also discuss the ethnicity of Hanna Barbera characters, hell gigs, why dorks love us, TV jingles, the possiblity of a black Pope and we dish about famous comedy pricks we’ve met on the road.
PJ in studio !

- There’s a new show posted once or twice a week, depending on the hosts’ schedules. One week three shows got posted. Who knows how many they’ll do?
Do I need an iPod to listen to the show?
- Not at all. Term “podcast” was invented by Adam Curry, the ex-MTV veejay, as a way to define downloadable radio content to a portable player, ie an iPod. Of course, You don’t need an iPod to play the show, just follow the directions above to listen on your computer. You can also burn the shows to an audio CD and listen in your car or wherever. The Windows Media Player and Nero will do a nice job here. Corey and Joel actually hate the term “podcast” because it is both exclusionary and inaccurate. They like to think of it as a downloadable radio show, hence the name.
How do I subscribe to the show?

What’s with the Toffifay?
- Corey often brings in various snacks and stuff during the show (he’s fat), and one day he brought in some Toffifay candy. Joel thought it was really funny because Toffifay is sort of an old-man candy that you never hear about anymore. They also had that annoying jingle back in the early 80s – “Toffifay it’s too good for kids!”, which is a really bad way to market candy, if you think about it. Corey also said he had to go to some out-of-the-way store to get the Toffifay, because nobody carries it anymore. After sampling the candy for the first time in a while, Joel agreed that Toffifay was an overlooked gem of treat and the guys started eating it and singing its praises on every show. The angry emails from fans started almost immediately.
Is the show really dirty?
- Not really. While there are no restrictions on this type of show as far as content, Corey and Joel are aware that some people listen to the show at work, or around their kids. They also know that someone may want to sponsor the show at some point, or offer the guys a spot on a regular broadcast radio station, where they wouldn’t be able to talk dirty. Therefore, there is a real effort not to swear, although show #8 went a long way to break that rule.
What’s with the Queensryche?
- Queensryche are a hair metal band who had their greatest success in the 1980s and early 90s. Neither Corey or Joel is a fan (although Joel attended a concert once, he was stoned), but the band’s biggest fan is friend of the show and guest PJ Butland. PJ called Corey’s voicemail after the first show to complain about the amount of racial content in the show. Corey and Joel were a bit shocked to hear that anyone listened to the show, so they tried to placate their only fan by playing snippets of Queensryche every time either one said something offensive. This started on show #2 and there was much ‘Ryche played ever since. It worked so well, that by the time that PJ was the guest on show #8, he was so relaxed that he was completely racist and offensive, just like the hosts.
How can I get a hold of the guys?
- You can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send us compliments, insults, show ideas, porn links, whatever. If you’re email is funny or interesting we may even read it on the air. Right now, we don’t have a voicemail or phone line, but that may be added in the future.
