My cellphone rings. I answer it. It's Tig. She's calling me as a lifeline for "Name That Punky". Kyle delivers an agitated "Oh! PUNKY!" I think and then answer, "I can name that Punky in eight words. Punky has just been caught playing with matches." And it's the correct answer!
A true Blastronaut fantasy!
Al Madrigal is a great guest and had very interesting stories about character and how to judge it. It reminded me of a place I used to work. In order to determine if his workforce was loyal, an old boss used to place "blind ads" in the paper to see if any of them would respond.
ENGINEERS and MANUFACTURING SUPERVISOR - Immediate placement with competitive pay and benefits. Send your resume to P.O. Box XYZ City, State.
I thought is was a devious way to test the character (and job dis-satisfaction) of his staff.
I loved Kyle's story about not being able to find Target, a huge store with a target as its logo. He missed the target. So ironic.
Another awesome show from the hatch. Just got my tickets for the May 7 show at the Bell House in Brooklyn!! Who else is going?
Welp, that's been comment!

I woke up repeatedly last night and this morning with the Punky voice in my head. When I turned off my alarm clock, with "Punky" still playing on a loop in my brain, I excitedly realized it's Tuesday! I grabbed my phone to play the new episode of Professor Blastoff while I got ready, not really expecting to hear the Punky voice at all, let alone the Punky-packed treat that was today's episode. Boy, was I in for a surprise! I squealed with glee and did a dance in front of the bathroom mirror when Kyle announced the Punky game so early in the show. Made my day.

His Punky scenarios were great!
So, does anyone else want "What's That Punky?" to become a weekly spin-off show in the vein of Two Charted and Sklarbro County?
