The Skeet Bandit’s calling card.

I left it to chance last night as to what I’d be eating for dinner. It’s a Who Asked You? ritual that we all grab some grub following the show at one of our usual haunts. Often times, we end up eating breakfast for dinner. I couldn’t choose between the Sweet Banana Pancakes or the Bonanza Breakfast on special for just $4.99. So Jabari came up with a quick, band complicated, number game to which I had to guess the numeral he chose which would in turn decide my meal for the night. I should mention we did this because none of us had a coin to flip. Like my tasty dinner, I left this episode’s title to chance as well. This time I flipped a quarter and “The Skeet Bandit” was the winner over “The Skeet Barrier”. Either would’ve fit nicely. These title choices come from what might be one of the craziest stories we’ve ever had on the show. It features a number of subjects we bring up quite often on-air; masturbation, nudity, poop, shooting people, fighting, being tased and carnies just to name some. I won’t give any more away here. I really want you to listen to the story and the group’s reaction.
That’s later in the show. The first item we MUST discuss is the news of J.J. Abrams taking the director’s chair for the new STAR WARS movie. As you can imagine, we void off, once again, into talking about his STAR TREK. But not as bad as in the past. We’re getting better at not traveling into that wormhole as much. We’ve said our piece many-a-times, plus I don’t want to promote that piece of shit film any more than we already have. Should one man control so much popular science fiction? This is something we should all ponder. We welcome your thoughts.
Another pressing matter you simply must hear about is the shortchanging taking place all across the world by Subway restaurants. Some of their footlong sandwiches are NOT measuring up. Evidence of this appeared on the company’s Facebook Page thanks to an Australian customer who happened to have a tape measure handy. You can check out the image below in the Show Links. It clearly shows an 11-inch sandwich. The missing inch has a lot of customers getting ‘short’ with Subway. Additional images of length challenged subs have been popping up across the web, the New York Post even did an investigative piece and their are lawsuits in the works by those who’ve been duped prompting the restaurant to release a statement. They apologized of course, but the question remains, was it on purpose? I’m reminded of those stories of airlines that saved millions by cutting out food services or using less paint layers on their planes to lighten their weight. Is Subway trying to pull a fast one to save a buck? Or does some of their “fresh baked bread” need a little more yeast?
But perhaps the most spirited conversation of the night — more so than the J.J. Abrams one — takes place at the end of the show. In Indiana, a lawmaker there is trying to get cursive writing put back into school curriculum as required learning for elementary students. Proponents say it’s good hand/eye coordination skills for kids. It’ll also enable them to READ cursive writing and connects them with the past. Opponents say it’s archaic and unnecessary… we have iPads now. All but four states have dropped cursive as a requirement. It’s up to local school districts whether they want to teach it or not. My concern is whether or not kids will be able to read it. Road signs and credit card bills aren’t written in cursive, but a letter from meemaw might be. Perhaps it’s up to junior to teach those relatives how to use Skype. But then there’s the question of signatures. Will there be a generation of adults who print their name on the dotted line? I think learning to read it should at least be required. Our discussion of this turns into how and when we write in the script and even how we write certain letters. And even how legible our names are. How many letters can we make out in our signatures? I know at least four in mine. Just take a look at the receipt for my Bonanza Breakfast!
