Every Damn Thing

40 ? 30 : 10)"
We add Cheech and Chong, the candy Whoppers and shirtless men (wearing elaborate angel wings, gold lamé shorts and furry cha-cha heels) to the List of Every Damn Thing.
Comedy bits by Cheech and Chong that we discuss include “ Dave’s Not Here”, “ Santa Claus & His Old Lady”, “Earache My Eye” (which is performed in a scene in Up In Smoke) and “ Basketball Jones featuring Tyrone Shoelaces”. We mention some pretty offensive R. Crumb comics but don’t want to link to them. Phil references The Pirates of Penzance while confusing The Corsican Brothers for Yellowbeard. The Corsican Brothers is very loosely based on Alexander Dumas’ 1844 novella of the same name. The “Born In East LA” music video is fun, and is as relevant today as it was 35 years ago. It has a cameo by Elvira. Cheech Marin is, in fact, in Spy Kids. Phil thought that Cheech Marin had a Celebrity Jeopardy! record of some kind. It turns out he won a Celebrity Jeopardy! tournament in the 90s but later was beaten by Michael McKean. Mark McGrath never appeared on Celebrity Jeopardy!, but he is a three-time champion on VH1’s Rock & Roll Jeopardy! Tommy Chong was convicted in 2003 for drug paraphernalia distribution, and there’s a documentary film about it. We discuss the movies Friday and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, which owe a lot to the films of Cheech and Chong. Is there a malted milk coffee drink? Yes here’s one, it’s some kind of iced malted mocha. We’ll try it and let you know. The angel from Barbarella, Pygar, is played by the guy who starred in Danger: Diabolik.
