Adieu, Mr. Earl Jones



On this sad day, the Rabbi and the Friar lament the departure of James Earl Jones, the very voice of Star Wars and King Jaffe Joffer.

Meanwhile there was no military coup in west Taiwan on Friday, so why did so many people believe that there had been one? The answer is becoming increasingly a problem, as Social Media once against demonstrates its scary ability to put information – bad or good – out there in a hurry.

Have you tried the latest Social Media challenge, “Sleepy Chicken?” Of course not. Because you are not a moron. If you’re going to divorce your wife, don’t ask for a divine trial. She’s not a witch…

What Would Jesus Do?



The whole Martha’s Vineyard fiasco finally went there. The entire argument became “Who are the “true” Christians? Meanwhile, Meta, which used to be Facebook, is performing a silver platter service for the FBI.

If you’re going to cheat at chess, make it stimulating. And if you happen to be in SeaTac’s North Park, you’ll need a helmet!


King Charles, Played by John Malkovich



The Goliards have come full circle. At long last, we once again have a King Charles (played by John Malkovich)!  Like the last time (and the time before that) we had a King Chuck, it’s time for Goliards everywhere to celebrate and sing boisterously while drinking like it’s a symposium. It’s a celebration of all things (not you, Ireland) English Monarchial system, no matter how silly it seems to us.


Send Nudes!




It was a confusing week… the messages that were being sent by the Supreme Leader were, at best, mixed and confusing. The bigger question is simply who exactly was he talking at? Because it didn’t make much sense to the Good friar or the Rabbi.

Swatting is still a thing, and even if the interwebs are protected by the 1st Amendment, should the use of the internet to incite violence – even if it is just potential violence – be allowed?

Dave’s WTF story just cannot hold up to Rod’s and literally nobody in the world, except Sarah Michelle Gellar, cares that she is still married to Freddie Prinze, Jr.

The important lesson this week, is if you’re going to send a message, do it smartly. Send nudes!


 

Show Me On The Doll Where Ben Shapiro Hurt You



This past week, the Podcast Movement, which isn’t the entirety of podcasting by any means, decided to have it’s annual conference at which they sold space to The Daily Wire, based upon their (Daily Wires) “heavy involvement in podcasting.” Then the PM decided to apologize to the world for it.

The State of California has decided to go a step further and ban the sale of ALL internal combustion engine vehicles a little over a decade from now. Why anybody still lives there is beyond the Rabbi, but there is a bigger problem with this whole thing… 

It turns out that the whole “She-Hulk” thing is actually real. There really is a show featuring a woman who gets Hulk powers but because she’s a woman she deals with the emotions better than Bruce Banner. Unfortunately, the interwebs do not…

All that and more this week on What the Frock?


NOTE: Just as this show ended, Dave received the text informing him that his father had passed away. We apologize for the delay in editing and posting, but we know that you will understand.
