Every Damn Thing

We add online dating, Pee-Wee Herman, and public humiliation to the List of Every Damn Thing.
We talk a bit about kids falling down wells, including Baby Jessica. Kids still fall down wells (as recently as last December) but it appears people don’t give a shit anymore. We discuss peeing in sinks. So does Quora. SCRUFF is Jason’s preferred app ;) We discuss a number of online dating services, including Grindr, Growlr (not for bears “grrrrr!” but for bears “heeeeyyyyy!”), Tinder, Christian Mingle and Farmers Only. “Grindr inches” refers to dudes claiming extra inches when advertising their dick size. Jason says it's likely because they’re measuring starts from the butthole to the tip. Phil mentions a white supremacist dating site, and is probably talking about WASP Love ( here’s and article about it from the Sydney Morning Herald). Natalie mentions a dating service for people with food allergies, and must be talking about singleswithfoodallergies.com. We couldn’t find dudes taking pics with dollhouse accessories to make their dongs look big, but we did find dollhouse sex toy accessories on eBay. Some people consider catfishing an art of sorts. Look at this nerd eating a McRib. “If The South Woulda Won” by Hank Williams, Jr. is a bad song by a not-so-great guy. “Fax Me A Beer” is just plain goofy, which of course made it appropriate for use in a 90s Budwieser commercial. We mention Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss Whedon is problematic but his shows and movies are great. Original Buffy Kristy Swanson is a Trump-er. Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was, in fact, Tim Burton’s first feature film. This means Phil was right. It also means Jake was wrong. Movies featuring Paul Reubens that get brought up include Mystery Men, Blow and Batman Returns. Movies featuring Pee-Wee Herman that get brought up include Big Top Pee-Wee, Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday and Back to the Beach. The live recording of The Pee-Wee Herman Show stage production, which aired on HBO, can be watched on YouTube. We briefly discuss E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (most notably his finger). We mention Cabazon (no, not Barbazon: School of Modeling!), which is located outside Barstow, California on the way to Palm Springs. Here’s evidence of Pee-Wee and Elvira together. Icons. Elvira (aka Cassandra Peterson) was-- along with Reubens-- a member of the Groundlings. Cheech & Chong were not members, but many Groundlings-- including Reubens and Peterson-- were hired for Cheech & Chong's Next Movie. Jason couldn’t remember the name of Joe Manganiello’s wife. It’s Sofia Vergara. Here’s the Slate article about Pee-Wee’s queerness that Jake quotes. Paul Reubens Day, presented by “Drunken Redheaded Sluts” and the Center for Sex & Culture, was a San Francisco pub crawl / walk full of Reubens-themed activities and featuring a mass of Pee-Wee Hermans. The Alamo itself doesn’t have a basement, but the gift shop does (it was added in the 80’s). We talk Overboard. Jeffrey Wiseman played the kid who talked like Pee-Wee for most of the movie. In the episode, Jake forgets the name of the Florida congressman currently embroiled in a sex scandal. The turd’s name is Matt Gaetz. This might be the video of Guy Fieri fighting with his hairdresser that Jason and Natalie talk about.
