Plus, the so-called "food experts" compete head to head with DB in the contest of wits with a confusing rule set and inconsistent question structure we're calling FoodPardy!

Episode 155: Just Throw It Away
Hey what if Mr. Magoo was walking around in today's times? It's not that difficult to imagine. Folks we've got a long episode today...almost as long as my hair has been getting due to quarantine! And it's just about as good, too. Smack that play button for some classic jokes, goofs, and smart stuff to say, as well as little Canadian pokemon guys, a new stupid mask type, a bad board game, and more.

Episode 154: Happy Daddy's Day
Happy Daddy's Day Everyone Who Cares! On today's show we have a brand new character from DB, "Mikey the Centrist", plus fixes for the great problems of our time: deadly virus pandemics, police brutality, and gender neutral piss pans. Wow! I sure hope social influencers and politicians and the Illuminati are listening to this so we can get some shit done!

Today's YKS is sponsored by Wipers123. They're a company that sends you windshield wipers for your car. We got some and they seem to be pretty nice. Prices seem reasonable as well. So I would say if you need windshield wipers for your car, or if you know someone else who does and you are getting them windshield wipers as a gift, a smart thing to do would be to go to Wipers123.com and use promo code YOURKICKSTARTERSUCKS to get $10 off your order. Check out The Typhoon SpeedSet wiper blades with quick-click technology. Sounds pretty good. And don't forget the promo code there. Alright. Thanks.
Episode 153: Uber For Help
Live from New York, it's.....YKS? What if that's what it was? Heck I don't know but I think it would most likely change from Weekend Update to Weekday Update. Due to, well, that's when the show comes out for one thing. And that's just one change. I might do some other ones, but of course I haven't really had much time to think about it. What, with everything going on in the world and all that stuff. I guess I'd also make it not Live anymore, just in case we have some mess-ups we want to take out. That way you get as good of a show as we can deliver, every time. And I'd do it during the day as well. Anyway, this week on YKS we have some Kickstarter projects to talk about, including both a half-assed new social media site and a niche Cards Against Humanity ripoff, as per usual, and then 4 other ones of indeterminate interest. Then several more minutes elapse with seemingly no new information conveyed, and the show ends. Please enjoy.

Check it out for tips and tricks, behind the scenes info, and exclusive scoops you won't find anywhere else. Just playing. It's me and Mike talking about whatever.
Episode 152: The War At Home
The US Postal Service brought to a screeching halt by widespread rioting and looting...Psychological warfare on our nation's sleeping-in citizens ramps up dangerously...Some news articles are too difficult to skim...Fixing the healthcare system with but a simple T-shirt...All that and more on today's YKS, an episode that's up on time and very full of many minutes of talking! Now that's what we call "fulfilling our duties as part of an implicit promise"! Music for YKS is courtesy of the Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle.

Plus a new round of campaigns to support on What The Fund?!?!
Episode 151: OJ's Place
New schedule of YKS! How it's going for you so far? For us, it's going very well. Nobody asked! Fine! On today's YKS, we say goodbye to some beloved Nashville establishments, continue the pop culture conversation around #ReleaseTheJesseCut, and plumb the intellectual depths of sexual coffin scenarios. Plus, an update on butter tech, finally figuring out who the good cops are, and bringing values back to country music. What a jam-packed episode....I scarcely believe you could come up with a better way to spend 90 minutes. I overheard a very learned scientist saying that about the show. And I trust those guys, don't you?! Music for YKS is courtesy of The Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin.

Episode 150: To Catch A Vibe
Hey, it's Monday....what the...???? Haha. That's what you sound like right now. First of all, relax. Calm down. It's a joke. Actually, it's not a joke at all. It's real and it's the future of YKS. We're doing Mondays now, alright? Try to keep up. This week on the show Mike and JF are talking about Donald Trump's big wet booty hole, the Problems with Movies (numerous), and some vicious hand to hand combat between members of the expanded YKSiverse. It's pretty good and plus, it's on Monday, which is nice as well. So check it out. Music for YKS is courtesy of The Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle.

If you need new wipers on your car, I mean. Which....maybe you do! I don't know! YKS Premium returns on Friday.
Episode 149: M.I.C.H.A.E.L. H.A.L.E.
On today's YKS...The first use of italics in an episode description that I can recall, so that's big news. Plus! Should we be celebrating the vulva? Many people are saying, "Yes! With a book!" Thankfully, our friend Lil' Evan is here to save the day. And we've got so much more than that....we're talking about the Jetsonification of breakfast, we're talking outer body experiences, we're talking bad usernames, we're talking DOG SHIT. We got it all today baby. Tune in or get tuned up.Music for YKS is courtesy of the Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle. Additional research is courtesy of Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan. Let's all hit the dab for our friends who make the show possible. Now that was a damn good episode. What was your favorite part of it? Let us know by emailing in: Email@email.com. But if you're not subscribed to YKS Premium on Patreon, you're missing out on (approximately) half the Mike and JF shenanigans you could be getting every week! Last week on YKS Premium, comedian and Real Housewives apologist Sarah Squirm rang us up to talk about Jackass stunts and be subjected to a Quarantine Edition of the Jokeblogger Top 10. It was pretty good! And now this week, we'll be doing another episode. It won't be as good, but, you gotta understand, people are busy right now. So that's why probably.Finally, this week's absolutely cool and kick-ass episode of YKS is brought to you by Manscaped. Now look you don't need me to tell you this, but they make good stuff, and if you wanted to try the whole thing out and help your buddies at YKS out in the process, you'd go to the website and get the stuff and use the promo code YKS to get 20% off and free shipping. Yeah they'll let you check out without it but I wouldn't recommend it!
Episode 148: Armchair Neuroscientists
Paint drying may be the famously boring thing to watch happen....but what if you only listened to the part that happens before you even get to paint! That is today's episode in a nutshell, as Mike and JF discuss the finer points of drywall repair, the disease of serial inventorship, the great democratization of sub-South Parkian animation software, and political protest poems (with fiddle accompaniment). Bye Bye Virus! Music for YKS is courtesy of the Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan. YKS Premium this week is a doozy....Mike and JF are joined by the very nice and funny Sarah Squirm to talk about reality TV bullshit and do the JokeBlogger Top 10. It's very stupid to subject your good guests to this! But that's what you have to do sometimes, if you want to (???) and (???). Anyway check it out. On Thursday, when it comes out.
