It’s been a bad couple of weeks, so Phil and Rita start off with some juvenile humor. Hey we’re all still 12 years old.
Celebrity farts: We play the game and make some noise perfect for laughter around the dinner table.
Sickness: We touch on our summer colds which put us out of commission while we should have been recording podcasts. Sorry. At least we’re on the mend. So now we’ve done farts and sickness. Where does it lead next?
Food: Of course! Food! Rita makes an awesome amazing Vietnamese noodle salad she found on allrecipes.com. A couple of tweaks to fit our palate and we’re good to go…when we find the exact recipe we’ll update the link. UPDATE: here’s the link to this really tasty Vietnamese noodle salad.
Injuries around the home: Of course Phil’s memory is forever stained by injuries caused by those who should love you. This leads to the next topic however.
Parents: They can be bizarre with the way they raise you. If you confront them about it however, they have no memory of your agony. Then we’re on to food again with Quisp and Quake. Look it up.
Puppet chutes: No explanation required!
Still more food: In order, we cover chocolate eclairs, dirt, glue, paste, Silly Putty and seaweed.
On Wisconsin: The formerly progressive state that is probably not so much any more…
Here it is. The very first Prehensile and Gretel show. We cover a lot of ground in just 20 minutes:
ICD-10 Code Mockery
These are the codes used to describe medical conditions. Some of them are funny. If you google “funny ICD-10 codes” or “stupid ICD-10 codes” you can find a whole lot of complaining about it. We reference this book: Struck by Orca: ICD-10 Illustrated. Not by name of course, because Phil couldn’t remember the name of the book. Or half of what he’s trying to talk about here. This particular book is at Amazon here: http://amzn.to/1dXLYKe
Barbie and Ken Heads in Special Places
There’s probably an ICD-10 Code for that too, although no one will admit it.
Kung Fu Fighting
This references an old song that was on the radio all the time in 1974. Rita can’t hear it without thinking of an early crush and the extreme letdown that ensued. (see Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SobQQWTmfbA
King of all and possibly related to Rita.
Geology of the Cranium
We randomly pull from our special cigar box of suggested words and ideas, a slip of paper that says “Geology of the Cranium” and go from there.
The Benefits of Dog Math
We selfishly profit from Laszlo the Schnauzer’s ability to target his caloric burn.
Mixed memories for the two of us. Rita’s are benevolent. Phil’s are more traumatic.
