Episode 250: Cousin Jabba / Jimmy John’s Locker

Two Hundred Fifty episodes. Now that's what I call a very significant milestone. Even though some of the episodes were reruns from YKS Premium. Oh yeah, and there are hundreds of YKS Premium episodes too. So is this really 250, when it's actually like 482? Yep. That's what the number says, so that's what it is. 

On today's 250th episode, which is the number that it is, we're dealing with our 3 Foes, cooking toxins, and Mike's Little Freakout Pile. Plus we got a cool book for kids...who like motorcycles, a guy doing some 2007 style YouTube, and yet another porch package device...with a twist! And a very special anniversary edition of Real or Fake.

Today's episode of YKS Premium is sponsored by these fine brands.Schedule35 - Now I was always taught to not eat stuff that you found in the woods, on the ground. Come to find out, maybe if I had thrown that particular yoke off a bit earlier in life, I could have a better and deeper understanding of my self and environment etc? Guhh? Well that's what I read anyway. And with Schedule35, they picked the stuff up off the ground for you, and measured it and told you how much to take and stuff. And I bet they even washed the things, too. Sound too good to be true? Well, it ain't. Get 15% off your order at with the promo code YKS.Doctor Butlers - Hemorrhoids. It's one of those things you think, "Ok, there's no way somebody likes having this, right?" And of course you'd be wrong, cause it takes all kinds you know, but the spirit of what you're saying is true. It isn't, generally speaking, fun to have a bunch of ass pain. And Doctor Butler's gets that, which is why they have pretty much the best selling and reviewed butt cream out there. Go read the reviews for yourself, from a lot of people whose asses are better off for it. And now, you can save yourself 20% at with the code YKS.BetterHelp - Folks, having feelings in your brain is normal.

Toss the stuff out you ain't usin' anymore, match a few things up, organize. That's right, you didn't think I had anything for sock drawer = brain, but I did. And that success is probably, at least in part, due to therapy! Try it out for yourself and you'll be making good metaphors in no time.

I'll keep quaffing this stuff. Join me, won't you? They'll even throw in 5 free travel packs and a year's supply of one of my favorite vitamins, D, at

Episode 255: Advice Crackers on Food Mountain

Y'all! Come quick! Ol' Dan's got into the steamies again! On today's program -- and sorry if the episode description seems a little "catty". My cat is doing the thing where she reaches out her claw very slowly to slightly nick my finger skin so that it itches for the next 2 days. God I love animals soo much -- we've got a step by step recipe for Mike's special chili cleanse and god damn it she's doing it right now and it hurts why can't we just sit here and chill or maybe talk or whatever. Plus we've got the long-awaited reboot of fortune cookies, a lamp so stupid even Brick wouldn't love it, and a major leap in pet tech ok now she's laid her head down on the laptop edge which is super smart cause that doesn't have to close or anything right?? Ok enjoy the show I'm going to go stand up and have an animal get mad at me for doing it. Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle.

Executive Producer lola butt.Now that was a fine episode of YKS...My only suggestions would be: make it funnier, with a great guest, and shorter, and there's no ads in it, and nothing about Kickstarters, and make it video as well, and the video production has really taken a step up lately (cheers to Producer Dan), and the gimmick of it is incomprehensible, and everyone loves it and it costs money. Well, that's why they invented YKS Premium! Check out our most recent episode, with the inimitable Chris James, and two up and coming hosts in a special guest role!
