The Daren Streblow Comedy Show 142: Grocery Store and Jonnie W

Could you direct me to the canned peaches?”*Groans* “Aisle six, center, south side, third shelf from the top, latitude 44.08, longitude 108.75.

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 141: Dog Names, Bone Hampton & Darrel Dyer

[display_podcast]I think it’s weird how people name their dogs. I mean, it’s clear that dogs aren’t even aware that they have names. “Your name is Spot.”“OK… whatever.

[display_podcast]With Spring in the air, or as we call this time of year in Minnesota, “Sorta-Summer”, my kids end up wearing their winter clothes while outside, but it’s much warmer indoors. So, whenever they come home, they don’t just shed their coats and winter pants when they enter the doorway… there is a clothing explosion!“We’re home!” BOOM!! (coats fly behind the sofa, there’s a tasseled beanie impaled into to the wall).It’s truly frightening. And then, later, not a single one … [Read more...]
