Theo is the proud owner of a very old 2010 Toyota Corolla.  Jackie shares her opinion on Osama bin Laden (negative).  Topics include: antique cars, Jackie’s Opa, 9/11, cuneiform, Bartleby-ing, Long Island, beagles vs. other hounds, affluenza, landscape gardeners, child psychology, Pat the Bunny, Samwise Gamgee, erotic poetry, Susan Sarandon, Kendrick Lamar, dinosaur friends, Seinfeld, Human Centipede, Bicentennial Man, Chance the Rapper, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Pusha T, and Lil Nas X.
