So, a "babymoon" is when you take a sabbatical from work to spend your afternoons building adorably tiny rockets in order to send an infant to the moon. You have to stop him. Not because it's dangerous- but because a baby on the moon would ruin everything.

Great episode which, no offense to the guys, didn't suffer at all from Tiggleby flying solo. Looking forward to Kyle and David's episodes, too.
Also, STARD CAMEO!

I can't say I have a really strong grasp of "religious science" based on this podcast, but Stephanie was a great guest who was funny and had great chemistry with Tig.

There are a couple of theories regarding the true meaning. I tend to believe that it alluded to King George II and his contemporaneous political issues. He had eight children. Another theory is that there's a connection between shoes and giving birth. Not sure of the origin. I believe it continues today when shoes are affixed to the cars of newlywed
Instead of WikiLeaks, maybe we should go back to composing nursery rhymes with hidden meanings, i.e. "there was an old bear, with slicked back hair, who created some friction, with his topless fishin'."
FYI - ditto on education. I left high school when I was 15 years old. Never returned, never took an "SAT", etc., and ended up going to grad school at Brown. When I did go to college, I was better prepared than the vast majority of my classmates.

The truly unlikely event is that if you are imagining that maybe you have a past life, considering that most human beings have been Chinese or African, why didn't you think of "Xiahou Sung" as your name or maybe "Elkanah Odembo?" Could it be that your brain, an exceptional machine that constantly monitors your environment notes things that you consciously forget? The answer is yes. Your brain does that all the time.
When someone says something *just can't* be a coincidence, they often haven't crunched the numbers. Like Tig says, when someone asks you "Can you believe it!?" the answer is usually, "Yeah. I can wrap my head around that."

She is definitely the mammal in question. She was at the Bentzen Ball with Tig, and appeared as Tig's conspicuously nameless movie-loving girlfriend on the corresponding episode of Doug Loves Movies. It's great to hear Tiggleby's unique brand of giddy-in-love.
