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.

Bikinis? 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. For some people, this may seem like hyperbole. For certain handsome others, it’s all too true! That’s where Diet Smoke’s “Just Right” level comes in. Plus they got a bunch of new flavors and sodas (SODAAAA!) too. Get 20% off every single time you use the code YKS20 at DietSmoke.com


Honey - Prices go up…and so does my temper! Leading economists have termed this relationship “The Invisible Market”. But with Honey, we have an incredible tool to battle inflation (and maybe other types of -flation? Not sure). Just grab the free extension at JoinHoney.com/YKS and start clicking away to Savingstown! 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 267: Parties Remembered

Hey just so you know, the movie I was trying to think of was The Void. It doesn’t come up until way later in the episode, and it does seem like I’m about to get it but honestly I don’t. I get kinda close and then about 5 minutes after we’re done, I figure it out. It ain’t all happy endings, folks. Anyway on today’s show, we’re tossing and turning over Dan’s Proposition, oh and we’re sleepkicking a little bit sure, and we’re telling you why Bill Gates stuck us all with Micro$uck Winblows.

Episode 266: Toilet Steamies

Monday morning...oh shucks. I was just getting to love the weekend, and now it's gone! Maybe Monday should be the weekend too. Then we'd start the week on Tuesday, nice and fresh. I guess then Tuesday would be the new Monday. Garfield would be fucking pissed, but who cares about that racist? That's right, Garfield the cat was racist. I mean, probably, right? That was a long time ago. It would almost be surprising if he weren't. Piece of shit. Anyway on today's show we've doing a lunchbag takeover with our friend Dan the Glizzy King, getting favstar notifications for our weather reports, and doing the world's shortest update on an old Kickstarter. Plus, Master P is on this one. Remember that guy? Yep, we did too. That's why we did it. Anyway, check it out. Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle.

And by many highly intelligent, very empathetic, and physically strong individuals, to boot! But what if, every now and then, you felt like you needed a lil booster shot? That's where YKS Premium comes in. Every week, and also sometimes it's two times in one week for some absurd reason, the YKS crew injects you with another hour of fresh content. And best of all, it's all ad-free, available in beautiful HD video, and only occasionally about Kickstarter. YKS Premium...have a seat and squirt some of it in your arm! This episode of YKS is brought to you by these fine brands:Factor: Fresh, healthy meals delivered straight to my front door? Buhh? That's the thing I use to go outside! Well, now it's time to use it for something else. To get food. Try it for yourself and get $130 off at go.factor75.com/yks130Honey: Coupon codes: friend or foe? Sometimes, I just don't know. It seems like they want to help, but they're so hard to find, and sometimes they don't work. It's almost enough to make you give up on them altogether. We need an ally in the Coupon Wars. That's where Honey comes in. Check it out at JoinHoney.com/YKS
