Episode 248: From Karen to Brandon

Oh my god…That’s what you’ll be saying when you hear this week’s episode of YKS, which is so full of awesome content I almost decided to rename it The Awesome Content Show. That’s right, I almost unilaterally made the decision to change the name of the show I do as a full time(ish) job from something identifiable, descriptive, and established (if a little mean) to “The Awesome Content Show”, an honorific perhaps only as blasé as it is inscrutable! Just playing. But keep in mind I could change the name of this show at any fuckin’ time I want. On today’s show, we’re talkin melty clocks, rich guys reinventing the bus, and the ethics of using a marinade on your chicken. Plus we spill the tea on what it’s like being live show superstars, after our recent standing ovation (maybe? Couldn’t bear to look straight ahead) at Zanies with the Doughboys. Download it now, you 8-digited Cro-magnonite!

If YKS has a million fans I am one of them. If YKS has ten fans I am one of them. If YKS has only one fan, that is me. If YKS has no fans, that means I am no longer on Earth. For now, though, I am at YKS Premium


And this week on the show: sex educator Zoë Ligon teaches us how to do all that good stuff. Ohhhhh!

Episode 261: YKS Nights 3: YKS Afternoons

Mike and JF…they are are one “Odd Couple”. Sure, “I Love Lucy”, but something about these two really makes me smile. I guess you could say I’m “Bewitched” by them. Oh, you don’t listen? Well, hey, “Diff’rent Strokes” for different folks. By the way, I have captured and tied up the extraterrestrial creature known as “ALF”; he’s in my basement right now! And so on. Today’s YKS is a good one for everybody but Italians I’m sorry to say, but the rest of you are going to be treated to some new kitchen innovations, a twisted ripoff card game of a twisted ripoff card game, and believe it or not, a really corny and stupid webcomic! It’s a “The Facts Of Life” that you’re gonna like this one! Sorry I closed the Nick at Nite Wiki and couldn’t remember any other ones. Okay see ya.

Check. Robot sidekicks? Check. Michael Jackson? Say whaaaa? The YKS Beach Party continues over at YKS Premium! This week we’re talking the King of Pop’s final scripted role, as Agent MJ in a film known elsewhere as Silly Movie 2 and stateside as Miss Cast Away and the Island Girls. This pile of shit was so disgustingly bad we couldn’t bear to ask anyone normal to do it, so we got our friend,thememaster, and guy who loves garbage, Howell Dawdy back on to put it out of its misery!This week’s YKS is sponsored by these fine brands:Diet Smoke - There’s nothing worse than being way too high.

Now that’s what I call “Price Elasticity of Demand” (??)PolicyGenius - Life Insurance…now there’s a product that, when you buy it, you hope you never have to use it. But statistically speaking, everyone who has ever been born will most likely “pass away”. What a bummer. But it doesn’t have to be a bummer to shop for life insurance, and Policy Genius has seen to that. Their marketplace makes it easy to get the best price on the biggest policies…trust me, I used it! I’m being serious. It’s good to have life insurance. Check it out at PolicyGenius.com. I’m serious!

Episode 260: YKS Nights 2

You know what they say about sequels…they’re just as good, if not much better, everyone comes away from them feeling satisfied, and more importantly, wanting even more!

This week we’ve got an answer to the question “What was John Wick like before the movies, and if it wasn’t Keanu Reeves in it?” , some shoes so ugly even JF wouldn’t wear them, and a device for killing bugs that makes that salt shotgun look ingenious by comparison. Plus, Producer Dan eats a burger LIVE! You ain’t gonna get that anywhere else…unless you see Dan walking around, I guess.
