    Episode 205: Bufthulhu the Beaverthulhu

    Apologies for the audio on this one gang, we had a microphone cord fray over the course of recording and it sounds like we've got an open lightsaber on the table between us. This story, though, has a lot going on. We're reading "the Barber's Clever Wife," and she gets into some wild stuff.

    Suggested talking points: the scientific method, a Sweeney Clod, Kingdom Hearts additions, as thicket as thieves, crimewatch, cherry corn rice, conga line of thieves, fire: the catchall pesticide, 8 servings of gold, GMOut the ass, Bufthulhu the Beaverthulhu, the thicket women, spaghetti mustache trick, vegetable genders
