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!
