We start out this show with voicemail like usual, which conveniently leads us to the first problem-and definitely a problem of the first-world order: voicemail. It's obnoxious and the ones we play on the show are only a small fraction of the voicemail we receive. Maybe we'll make a supercut of voicemail that didn't make the show some day. We'll call it, "melatonin."

Our guest, Michael Capes, joins us this week. For those of you who may not know, Michael is the purveyor of a lot of pranks and shenanigans, including his famous sneaking-into-Disney prank. He brings in "Humorless People." If my intro paragraph pissed you off, you may be part of the problem. Michael talks about all the hurt butts in the comments section on Yahoo, YouTube and other online forums. I wonder if the comments on this site count? Only one way to tell: I'll mention Trump and take shelter in my tear-proof bunker made out of bags of sand. Actual bags of sand, or boobs, I'm fine with either.
And speaking of humorless comments, here's the video I appeared in with Michael where we snuck into a night club with a crack team, ala Ocean's 11 or 12. There are some real gems here:

And here's one of the episodes of "What To Text" we shot together:
Finally Dick rounds out this episode with the "texting batter's box," but not before we argue about what a baby is. Turns out, nobody knows. As for the texting batter's box, it's a concept Dick has referred to in the past, but finally brought it in as a problem: texting as an extra base when it comes to sex. First base, as everyone knows, is making out. Second base is hands below the waist, or handy-town. Third is when things get a little more scandalous when mouths go below the waist, and a home run is when you score. So what's the texting batter's box? According to Dick, an extra step before you even step up to bat. A step that Dick argues is a potential stumbling-block, where not batting correctly could mean you don't even step up to the plate. Is that how it works? I don't know, I don't watch baseball because I don't hate myself.
And finally, because people are asking, I'll announce more details about the new podcast along with the network soon. Stay tuned...
