Episode 37: GWA (Grannies With Attitude)

Episode Notes

When nonagenarians go all 187, you can bet your old-timey word for buttocks that your pals at the Whiparound will be on the case: this week, an elderly woman guns down her own son, and the whys and wherefores send us careening to Kenyan self-defense class, stopping for a layover at the House of Cane Fu, and finally debuting ANOTHER NEW GAME! What’s old is still old and yet NEVER more dangerous, you’ll see!

BUT FIRST! Phil’s got an all-time highlight science segment, and you’ll NEVER guess what his eye spied on the Red Planet, ya’ll: bring your goggles for this one!

AND LATER…we’ve got drug store lawsuits, a well-timed self-defense ad, and more drunken seafowl than you can handle, boyo! Now c’mere and let grandpa give you a quarter…OR ELSE: you, whippersnapper, are here for your mandatory annual visit…to the WHIPAROUND!
