So great that Dr. Michio Kaku was able to sweep in, in the last moment to replace Dr. Francis Collins. The Update is IN!
Intro – 2/26/13
Typical to their MO, Texas goes big, with a battleground political movement. Stephen introduces Dr. Kaku and his plan to solve global warming. Are Meteors going to make people de-invest in sky-front property? And exactly what is Icelandic Porn; do they do it in bulky sweaters? Has anyone else noticed that Stephen hasn’t had a WristStrong bracelet in his sleeve lately?
Popewatch Indeschism 2013 – One Pope over the Line
Stephen AKA, Cardinal of Basic Cable, calls his Popwatch Indeschism 2013! The threat of having two Popes in the Vatican does set up a Theological dilemma of infallibility. “One Pope over the line sweet Jesus, one Pope over the line!” nods to Brewer & Shipley (thanks, Karenatasha) … Like Gathom with multiple Batmans!” Ya, two media characters wearing strange costumes for no apparent reason!
But then Stephen goes on to set up the awkward possibility of meeting up with them both and getting Double Poped aka DP’ed! (Had to look up DP, LOL). But you will be able to tell the Old Pope from the New Pope as the old one will not be wearing red shoes and they will take away his ring, his precious, precious ring.
Battleground Texas – Jeremy Bird
Messing with Texas? “Demographic shifts” appear to be undermining the Republican’s effort to keep America white and male. Obama’s Minority Out Reach Around Guru: Jeremy Bird is leading the Battleground Texas and their theme song could be Lyle Lovett’s, “You’re not from Texas! But Texas wants you anyway!”
If Texas doesn’t secede before the next election, can they really flip Texas? You know, flip them by flipping the Bird! Stephen calls Jeremy on his euphemism, “Demographics” with the great quote, “Some of my best friends are Demographics.” Jeremy Bird says it is not about demographic shifts but rather about getting all the voters to the polls but we know, it will only work if they have ID s or the “turn out” will be “turned out.”
Jeremy Bird throws around the word “gerrymander” which Stephen says is a harsh but accurate word and Stephen wins a $100 bet that Mr. Bird can’t get President Obama re-elected. Ah, but he get Michelle Obama elected? I hear she is a Demographic!
Drone Ducking Tips
With Death Fans in the house, Stephen drones on about Obama’s robo-assassination spree and asks “What are your Drone Ducking Tips!” Look for some fine seat dancing in this act. Al Qaeda has a liberal peace-humpers’ recruitment scheme! As one Drone Tip is to hide under trees, Stephen proclaims that our Drone Program is a secret re-forestation program!
“Think locally, bomb globally!” Keep looking up!
Interview – Michio Kaku
“Asteroid Apocalypse” is the subject of Dr. Kaku’s NewsWeek article. Surprise! There is a still a NewsWeek! This is return visit by Dr. Kaku; so glad Stephen is feeling better this time. We know we have terms like quarks and but Dr. Kaku coins the technical term “City-buster.” Showing his theoretical physic’s prowess, he can do the math and the dodge bullet, theoretically.
Stephen asks for clarification of asteroids “may hit us” and asks if we can make our atmosphere more slippery? Dr. Kaku is advocating that we work out how to nudge asteroids to change their obits. Stephen asks astutely where in space is something you push against in order to nudge an asteroid?
