  1. On Arthur the Aardvark: don’t feel bad about being unfamiliar with it. It’s not just a kids show, it’s a toddler show. Like, intended for six-year-olds at the absolute oldest. Lots of lessons about eating your vegetables, sharing, etc. The now-famous screenshot of Arthur’s first comes from an episode where his sister D.W. crashes and breaks his kite(?) before he knocks the shit out of her. That particular meme is pretty basic, just about expressing some kind of anger.

    The broader umbrella of Arthur memes, however, focuses on Arthur and friends engaging in general savagery, or standing in as hood tropes. For example, anoth of the most popular Arthur memes depicts Arthur putting on his pants while D.W. (again, his sister) cries at the foot of a bed. It is captioned “What? I though I was just another n***a on the hit list?” in reference to a recent Rihanna lyric. The overt sexualization of numerous characters is what PBS has objected to but, as we know, there’s no stopping the Internet.

    Thanks, I like getting super formal and granular about dumb shit.

  2. I thought they would go the whole time without ever telling us what Adam Sandler movie they were talking about. VGA does the same thing sometimes, playing clips that the hosts know but the listeners have no idea what they’re going on about if they don’t say the title after the clip.

  3. I was waiting in an airport, on my way to a deployment in Qatar, when I heard about Steve Irwin. Whenever someone mentions Irwin’s death, it brings back a ton of memories from that time.

  4. I know they didn’t play it but the song Two of Hearts by Stacey Q was a fun summer song – Stacey Q appeared on The Facts of Life in 1986. For two episodes, she played Cinnamon AND dated George Clooney’s character. Tootie was also trying to make it as a singer and she had jealousy issues. George became a roadie for Cinnamon and left the show.
    I am guessing life as the roadie didn’t work out and that is how he ended up in Lanford IL

    Great episode today even with out Elston!
