    Your blender must not be as sexy as mine.

    Animals don't have feelings.

    It's actually incredibly adorable and has nothing to do with animal sex, unfortunately.

    Good choices.

    Real quick guys if you could have sex with any animal from history, who would it be? I'm going with Wishbone.

    It's not your job to police the show, so I guess we're all wearing our volunteer underpants today! Really, though, it's not necessary to be so condescending toward Don. The show was entertaining. We listen to it for laughs. If it got you this upset, maybe you shouldn't invest so much emotion into a comedy podcast solving pseudo-important societal issues.

    If you haven't bought the UCB Book yet

    Matt tweeted something about this the other day. https://twitter.com/MattBesser/status/366998015451471875 Basically, it looks like they know it's outrageous and they're trying to figure out better solutions for it.

    Episode UCB2 — Bonus: Ask The UCB 2

    Very insightful episode! It's always great to hear people talk about things they're passionate about. As an improv noob, getting this kind of information for free is incredible

    What the hell? This video just enrages me. Partly because of this horrible specimen of humanity, and partly because she's shooting video in portrait.

    Episode 82 — Apocalypse Crushes

    This is exactly it.
  15. They call them 'group games' in the improv world. There are a lot of different ways to do them, but I think on a podcast they kinda have to be overtly presentational like this. You should totally learn some improv! Your location says LA - why don't you take some classes? Me and a group of my friends have been teaching ourselves (I live in Southeast Missouri ), and it's a blast.

    Episode 82 — Apocalypse Crushes

    "I think Freak Dance sucked." Notice how that's pointed at the movie and takes Matt Besser as a person completely out of it? Let's compare it to...oh...say... Here you're insulting a person - not a movie. You can stick your fingers in your ears and hum all you want, but your point was clear. Oh, you don't know what 'ability' means. Sorry - usually when people defend a point it means they're smart.* *Yeah! Let's hide behind a thin veil of comparatives to insult each other so that we can argue semantics and people will pay attention to us! I'm beginning to understand your deal now. You're like an idiot with a flapping jaw that has a platform on which to make fun of people and then rescind accountability on the grounds that what-you-said-wasn't-actually-what-you-said-so-I'm-smarter-than-you-omg-please-pay-attention-to-me. HAHA NOTICE HOW I DIDN'T CALL YOU ALL OF THOSE THINGS I JUST CALLED YOU BUT YOUR FEELINGS ARE STILL HURT?! Just be a real person and stop trying to show the internet how smart and witty you are.

    Episode 82 — Apocalypse Crushes

    You didn't insult Freak Dance. You insulted Matt's ability to make a dance movie. You weren't ripping on the movie, you were disrespecting a person. Roast comedy isn't synonymous with contempt, nor does it happen in a medium that makes it difficult to detect any level of sarcasm. It also takes place in a relatively 'safe' environment and is performed by people with respect for the person being roasted. In addition to that, roast comedy isn't a one-way street. The person being roasted gives consent. They agree to it. Without that consent, it's more insult than entertainment. It's also good to note that in order for 'offensive comedy' to be successful, it has to be funnier than it is offensive. What you are doing isn't 'roasting'. What you are doing is 'being insulting'. Does that help you to understand? What you think you said: "I don't like Freak Dance." What you actually said: "Matt doesn't know how to make a watchable dance movie." Does that clear it up for you? Again, you weren't insulting a movie. You were insulting a person for creating something. How about "Is it because as a fan of a person I should respect that person's work enough to express my opinions on the pieces of his work I didn't like in a way that isn't condescending, mean, and disrespectful?" And now for a shitload of misdirection - tl;dr - Be accountable for the things you say.

    Episode 82 — Apocalypse Crushes

    I'd wager that they listen in an attempt to catch you saying something even slightly off-the-mark so they can point out that you're wrong and they're right and nana-nana-boo-boo stick your face in doo-doo my hyper-inflated sense of self importance is central to my worldview. She said that he's Canadian, not a comedian. I made the same mistake. They later started making fun of the way he spoke, which is what clued me in.
