'I've Never Been Fondled by Trump But I Have Been Screwed by Biden'
"Sent me a picture. Of a woman at Costco. Wearing the following T-shirt. I've never been fondled by Donald Trump. But I have been screwed by Joe Biden. How's that? I would love to know what reactions this will get. This cheerful smile on her face. It's a gutsy thing to wear. It's entirely accurate. That's the reason it's funny if it's not accurate. The whole country has been screwed by Joe Biden and the Democrats. It's irrelevant if it's Joe Biden, Kamala Harris. Adam Schiff, it's irrelevant. If it's a Democrat, the country will be hurt.

Why Americans Are Weird With Katie Hopkins
"You believe in truth, there's a joy. And so when you say and it's important for us to make this point, you and I both know that if you're just going to whine and complain about what's wrong, you become part of the problem. This is, you know, this is part of my I'm all about our team and I'll never talk our team down and in school and outscore outscore. I'm always about the team. But one criticism of our side is many, many speakers spend a lot of time on stages talking about what's wrong. Talking about stuff we know, like we know about COVID. We all know, we don't need to hear over and over and over again. And so that's why being able to get up on that stage and provide a break in the day and just make people laugh, you know? And find the fun is so important because that is the uplift that drives our side, because they know the other stuff. So I can be up there and they know I'm on their team, but I'm like, Americans are weird. And you know, and people are like, are we? And it's like, yes, Americans are weird because you have things like Costco. And I don't even I've never even known what a Costco was, but Costco is places you can buy 45 gallons of milk. For one family. That is a crazy thing. And you have things like commercials for medical items on your TV. But you understand that's relatively new. When I was growing up, we didn't have that. I have to make it okay. Changed. And it just and so much of it is unbelievably disgusting. But it doesn't make it all right that you only did it recently. No. You all still think it's normal to talk about very personal no I don't. I don't. I am used to that popcorn watching Tucker and you're like, no, no. Yes, we could talk about this. I don't want to hear about it. Yeah, well, that's what you do. And that's why Americans are weird.

Pastor Che Ahn Stood Up Boldly When California Shut Down Churches
"Hey there folks, I'm excited when I get to talk to somebody that is not just a friend, but somebody I think who has been a hero. My guest right now is past your che on of Southern California. He has written a book called turning our nation back to God through historic revival. I happen to know it's a good book because I read it and I wrote the forward to it. Past your che, welcome to the program. Thanks, Eric is an honor to be with you and love you and love your program. Well, I love you because I respect you. You stood up in California. I want to tell my audience about that before we get to the book. The book is turning our nation back to got through historical revival, but you stood up boldly when the governor in California was trying to shut down churches. And I know we've talked a little bit about this on the program before, but for people just tuning in, they don't know you. They don't know that there are many really heroic pastures in California that stuck the next south. They said, we're going to fight. Mike McClure is one of them. I was just at his church in San Jose, rob McCoy, Jack hibbs, but you are the one that I have known the longest. Tell us what happened to you because you do talk about it in the book. Well, originally, when president Trump said 30 days of mitigation, we didn't know what this coronavirus was about. So we locked down for 30 days. But then we begin to notice that other places work declared essential. And so things were opening up right after that at 30 day period. But not the church. So marijuana dispensaries were declared essential, abortion clinics were declared essential. Of course, Walmart and Costco and the grocery stores were declared essential. And later on, strip clubs were declared essential casinos were considered essential, but their church was locked down. You notice this. Most people notice that this was crazy. The point is, you are the pastor of a big church, and you said, this is wrong. And we're going to do something about

Robert Netzly, Founder and CEO of Inspire Investing, Describes the Corporate Impact of Faith-Based Investments
"Tool Robert, you have to be excited about this. I mean, this seems to me like a great discovery. I mean, the idea that tons of people feel powerless, but then suddenly you're saying to them, no, we're going to help you to make sure that all the money that you have invested is used for God's purposes for what is right and true. It's hard for me to see this as anything other than a really big deal. Right. And it's actually $22.1 trillion Eric that is investments that are in retirement accounts alone because there's the numbers we have from the IRS. They're controlled by protestants, evangelicals and Catholics in this nation. $22.1 trillion over the last count. That's ridiculously a lot of money. And almost none of it is advocating for biblical values with the companies that they own. And to your point, it's easy to feel powerless, like these big Megan national corporations doing all these heinous things and what can we do? Maybe we just don't shop somewhere sometimes. But what we found, again, by God's grace, we've had some pretty outsized influence with companies, such as Costco that stopped donating money to gay pride parades because of our engagement with them. Chevron stopped donating the money to Planned Parenthood because of our shareholder engagements with them. Evergreen list of companies that we engage with as investors and say, hey, you know, we call up their investor relations department introduce ourselves where faith based investors we care about biblical values, we see that you're doing XYZ. We'd rather you not do that. Just stick to your business, please. And more often than not, they're very

"I mean, there's no way to explain it. It's like he's like, oh, I don't like sauce on things. It's like what? Go to your family, what is wrong with you? How are your fucking room? Okay, sorry. To hijack no. Two days after the garbage blade, when I got home, grilled some bratwurst, got some bratwurst from local water to shop here. Grilled some grosser bratwurst. They were great. Then last week in Philadelphia, Frankfurt hall had another bratwurst. They had a great currywurst bratwurst in Frankfurt hall, and then of course yesterday Costco. So really, I am living my life quarter pound Frank at a time. That is it. That's impressive and you. And you're not forced to do it because of the podcast. Which by the way, why I gladly got the Fenway Franks in that sausage because it was dog dough bark fest. Yeah, I might have gotten them without that, but it was so I could eat them for the podcast. I was excited. I was excited to do. Yeah. And guess how many dogs? How many dogs have you had throughout the dog do bar fest? Zero so far. I may have had some veggie dogs, but yeah, it's not the same thing. It definitely it definitely has set me up with a definitely given me the most specific meat craving I've had all year for better or worse. Yeah. By the way, I just want to say also quickly excalibur that that pay per view that you were talking about had one of the best tag matches I've ever seen in my entire life. Featuring some guys that we would see at PWG. Yeah, the Young Bucks and lucha brothers inside the steel cage. Absolutely tremendous tag team match. And you know, I mean, definitely go down as one of the best tag team matches. In AW history, but I think also pro wrestling. I don't mean to be hiking. No, it was one of those matches I've ever seen. Yeah, people should check it out if they haven't. I think Dave Meltzer gave it 6 forks. Wow. He has changed the rating system recently. Yeah. It goes. Yeah. It's in honor of Abdullah the butcher. Hey, you know Mitch, it's time for a segment here on the podcast. And when fast food news breaks, the doughboys are on the case. It's time for another edition of breaking choose. Breaking two. Braking to. Thank you, Emma. I just like to point out again that they don't say there's no lyrics to that song with a breaking news. That doesn't happen. No, I think they're in there. Brian Williams are usually sing that. Oh, he sings it. Okay, he sings on top of the track. He sings on top of the track. And then he lies to you. Yeah. Mitch, this week's top story. I got some personal news. Let me hear it. You know, you and a lot of our listeners know me as the burger boy Nick weger, but you may not know this. My full legal name is Nicholas Frank weger. That's right. Yeah, it's true. And sometimes I go by Frank, which means it's time to review the week in hot dog news in another edition of let me be Frank. Wow, we switched it up bottom legs..

"5 forks. Who listens to the podcast? Excalibur, but again, you're a genius. Costco? We talked about it. LA doesn't really have a pizza culture. So yeah. Kind of is this. So if I were to base it exclusively on yesterday's visit, it would be bleak. But I've got maybe not wider esque affinity to Costco, but still an affinity to Costco. It holds a special place in my heart. It's a place where you can get two gallons of bourbon and a slice of pizza and you're out of the door for 40 bucks. And so. This is informed by my past experiences at Costco, but I will give it three and a half. Wow. Wow. Good score. But unfortunately, outside the hallowed halls of the golden plate club, mister slice, what do you think? Well wise, I was thinking of being a heel like hungry Henry. Be a great heel. But and given a 3.99, just to but you know what? Excalibur did the work for me. My experience this time was not great. I don't have as much experience as you do wags. Yeah. So I mean, obviously I didn't get to have the chicken bake, which I had before and I did really like. And I think look, the thing that really pushes it up is that I got all those ice cream sundae at churro, a hot dog and a drink in a smoothie and that was all like 9 bucks, which is a good deal, you know? But the hot dog didn't really hit in the churro was good but could have been better. The ice cream was maybe my bite of the night wags. Man, I don't know, this is hard for me to do, but I think I gotta go 3.75 forks for this for this outing. Three forks three times, boy. But a bummer, a bummer, but you know, that's how it is sometimes. That's how we roll sometimes in Doc dobrik fest 2021 and we'll take a break. We'll be back with more doughboys. You're fucking pissed. What's up everybody, it's your boy, mister slice, and I want to talk to you about today's sponsor candid. There's a specialist for just about everything, right? When your car breaks down, you go to the mechanic. When there's a problem with your shower, you know, you're doing something there..
"costco" Discussed on Doughboys
"I'm doing on spec. I'm not getting paid for it, but I'm hoping Costco ads. Yeah. There was a huge line of the gas station on my way out too. That was the other thing at the end of the year even after they were closed. It was just a, I don't know if that stays open or what the deal is. Is it always open? But there was a lot of there was a lot of people just waiting waiting in a huge, huge line to get the Costco gas up. I guess it saves you that you must be saving stuff if people are out there waiting for it. So we actually had a similar discussion because there was a gargantuan line for Costco gas. But even if you save 30 cents a gallon, is 25 minutes of your time in the Costco gas line worth four bucks. Right. No. The answer is simple. $4 to not do a lot of things. Waiting in line. If I could skip a line for $4, of course I would. Oh yeah, why is my experience with Costco like on a busy night, I wasn't as into it, but I know that you upgraded your membership. Is that correct? That's right. I did, yes, I upgraded to executive membership recently. Dear God, you know, look, the sales lady explained to me how much money I'd be saving. And it was, again, no brainer. So yeah, check out the Kirkland signature executive membership at your local Costco. Maybe the right fit for you and your family. Oh God. You know, you mentioned the families there on a Saturday night having a cheap meal. I mean, that's kind of one of the things I miss about the, that is disappointing about going members only is that, you know, I would do because my schedule is flexible. I could go midday during a weekday. And you would see like construction workers and. Landscaping guys. Like all their just filling up filling, you know, getting a really filling lunch for like 5 bucks. And that's really hard to do. I mean, especially in Southern California. And to have that kind of go away. Yes, these guys could theoretically get a Costco membership. But are you going to pay 60 bucks a year just to get a dollar 50 hot dog? Or are you going to go somewhere else? Yeah. Yeah. That is a bummer and understand the economic reality that led them to do that, but yeah, you're absolutely right. There's this, that's happened to a couple places a couple of local places near where I live. Like one was like this Chinese restaurant that had family own Chinese restaurant that had a really cheap lunch special and you'd always see working class people having taken their lunch break there and then it just closed and they're just gonna turn it into condos like everywhere. Same thing's happening with this burger stand. Yeah, it's a bummer when you see those options disappearing and all that's left is chains. But yeah, I agree. I wish I wish they'd just reopen it to everyone. Because also, I don't know how much money they were even losing to non members lining up. You still have to go out of your way to go there. I don't like members only. I don't like the idea of it. It's snooty to me. Yeah, although in fairness, you're wearing the jacket. The Costco members only jacket. Yeah. That Kirkland. I'd wear one of those. Members only finale of The Sopranos, great episode. I like the finale of this approach. Right. Me too. I don't remember is only as a concept and I love it. I don't like it. A grocery store? I don't know. I don't know why. Well, you know, look, is it a deciding factor? We're gonna find out we should get to our final thoughts. On this week's chain, Costco, specifically hot dogs, although we can talk about sides and drinks as well. And look, I'll go first because I think, you know, I think everyone knows my leanings. Everyone knows I'm a Costco fanatic. I upgraded the executive membership as you mentioned. I have a Kirkland signature sweatshirt I got. That's nice and it's very comfortable. And I wear it proudly. So, you know, even just having the bun, it's still a good deal. It's still not a terrible deal to get a bun and a soda for a dollar 50. Are you sure? Both of those things are the cheapest items on a restaurant menu. That was pure profit for them. Look, if you go to Carl's junior hardee's and you buy just a soda, how much is that gonna cost you? You know, like, you get a fountain drink in it and a bun for a dollar 50, but also, but hey, if you're eating the hot dog, that's an unbeatable value. And I just like Costco's food offerings. How was the bun? That was a good bun. As I mentioned, I like the sesame seeds. Quality bun. Oh, one of the better buns I've had thus far. And so I'm not going below 5 forks, 5 forks for me for Glasgow. Excalibur don't let me buy us you too much, but it sounds like you had something of a down outing. What was your experience and what's your forks? Don't let me buy you too much. By the way, I'll go first. What the fuck? How are you not supposed to buy him? No, I'm not just saying I wanted to. There's no suspense for what I mean. Of course I'm gonna go 5 forks. It's like you reviewing what's that fucking Boston pizza place you love? Regina, what? That's right. It's like you with Regina. You don't know the name of Regina? Fucking spot you drag me to? Regina. That's right. Dear lord. No, everyone knows you're gonna give it 5 forks. Everyone.

"Go a lot, we went a little bit. I feel like probably when I was like, in elementary or middle school when it was maybe, you know, that was the thing to do when we were buying a bunch of stuff wholesale. And to me, that is like just being in there seeing so many so many families it was just felt like such a family thing. And I don't have any kids or wife, Wally. Whoopie and grandma are my children. I did say Wally. Am I penalized for that? We'll take it up with a commish. What is the penalty? I don't know. Does he have any authority? You're the one that I'm pretty sure you have to pay him in half of it goes to a charity and half of it goes to him. Jesus Christ. I don't know about this arrangement. So, you know, so when I buy stuff at Costco just will ask me for it's just right. It's too much. But when I was in there, like, even in line when I was getting my food, there was like two kids and their dad in front of me and then when I sat down, there was like a family eating at the table and I was like, oh, you can just get people are just eating their Saturn, and I dinner here for cheap. It makes me and the kids seem to the kids are so excited. That's huge. Yeah. The kids were excited about getting chicken bakes, I heard them I overheard them talking. I was the creepy guy behind him listening in on the conversation. And so I get it, you know what I mean? Like it was exciting going to BJ's when I was younger just because their samples, which at the moment that's kind of gone away. But, you know, just trying some stuff at BJ's and walking around and getting like 400 gatorades or whatever. That's fun. It's fun to do that. So I didn't have any relationship with Costco or the food counter. But I was always, I always, you know, if there was a Pizza Hut in target or something, like that's always fun to me. I always like seeing a little food country in a place where you don't expect it. No, I'm with you. That's great for a kid. Excalibur, did you have a relationship with Costco growing up? No, I think Costco came to Detroit, probably when I was around 1617. So you know, it was a little late for me to have those kind of found childhood memories. We had a place called Gordon food service, which was more didn't have all the non food items of Costco, but it was like kind of like a warehouse club grocery store where you could get a 35 pound bag of rice or something where, you know, like a larger items in bulk, I guess, precursor to Costco. 35 35 pound bag of rice last me about a week. Me Whoopi and grandma go through it pretty quickly. Meanwhile, those gatorades are just getting dusty on the shelf. That is what I was going to get when I was there. I was going to get some gatorades, but. It was like varieties of it was Gatorade zeros, which I was fine with. But the flavors, I was like, I don't want these flavors of Gatorade zeros and then had to have fucking 40 of each. I just don't I don't need that. But that was gonna do some of my own chopping and put it on the doughboy skirt, but I didn't do that. And I did the I did the self checkout wise which I had never done there before. And I didn't have my card. So that was a whole Costco card. I didn't have my Costco card. I had my number. I had my Costco number, but I was at checkout in the lady. I just got in because I showed the guy at the front of my phone 'cause it was my number and then he just clicked me in and I was like, all right, and then at the end, they had to go and get my number and the lady had to put it into the checkout. It was a whole pain in the ass. It's an ordeal. I would say this is a pro tip to anyone out there who's a Costco member and regular shopper. Get the Costco Visa..

"Trying to compare it to something I don't know. I would say it's about 16 inches long. That's maybe a good thing for people to visualize. It's like a slightly longer. It is. And it is a big boy. I liked it, again, maybe end of the day thing, but I could tell that they were good and maybe if it was, you know, especially hot and fresh. It would be fantastic. But I just have to put it in the good category. I just Googled this. And apparently, I'm reading this from the Harry Potter wiki. J. K. Rowling did not have much trouble coming up with a wood for Harry's wand. Harry's wand is sometimes 14 inches long, so it's not far behind the chart. Yeah. Wow. Wow. Yeah. And also, is there anything else in their wives anymore to that description? That wand is Harry's wand is usually described as a 14 inches long and girthy. So. And proudly a turf. Okay. Yeah, boy. Oh boy. The wand? The wand? That's what you want to do? Okay. I also wives, I got the classic. I got the berry smoothie, which you kind of did sing the praises of this to me, so I really like that smoothie. So I had a bit of a conundrum. Like I told you I had to do you want me to keep going with what else I got because I got a couple more plays. Well, not a couple more things. I got the empty cup for my soda. And then I also got myself that ice cream sundae. And I never had the ice cream sundae before that just vanilla ice cream with a chocolate topping. And wax, it's really it reminds me a lot of like that McDonald's Sunday like when we had that McDonald's Sunday, it's just classic good ice cream and some good chocolate topping to it. It was really good. I enjoyed it quite a bit. So I took a few bites of that and you know, I wasn't gonna be able to I ate the hot dog, I eat the whole hot dog. And I ate almost all of that churro too. But I was down on the smoothie, but I had to go back into the store so I didn't know what to do as far as like I was like, I got this empty cup. It's tricky, yeah. My decision was to because I had to go back into the thing I was going to hold on to my empty cup and my smoothie and then by the time I got my hot dogs it was still open, I'd get myself a soda on the way out. Because that smoothie was damn good. 'cause I like that smell. Yeah. They make them really nice. So I was just drinking that smoothie, you know, I had my mask up, but I was just taking it down and just taking sips throughout Costco as I was walking around looking for my dogs. And it was good. That ice cream sundae was also good. And by the time I got through the line, I did actually get a soda I got myself a diet Pepsi, which was fine. You know, the Pepsi products? Come on. That was another thing they switched to Pepsi products from Coke to save money. You know, well, they look, they're making compromises to keep the soda at a dollar 50 and not lose too much or to keep the hot dog and soda combo rather at one point not lose too much money on it. Pepsi is cheaper. Well, here's the thing I will say. So I had all these things. I was only, you know, the only one man. I was there by myself. And I was like, I put in my card and it was and she was like, did you use a Mastercard? I was like, yeah, and she's like, we don't take Mastercard. I was so freaked out 'cause I had all this stuff in my hands and I was like, how much is it? And she was like, it's 9 bucks. I luckily just had ten, but I had ten bucks, so I just gave her. I don't even know if it was 9 bucks. I just was like, here, take everything and I took off. But all of that stuff for under ten bucks was kind of wild to me. That was the price point was still there. I'll say that much. It was impressive. Yeah, you can get quite a hug. I got the churro as well. I went with my wife and we had two hot dogs, slice of pepperoni pizza, a churro, and a chicken bake for 11 bucks, which wow. You can't beat the value. But the churro I got, unfortunately, was near inedible. Oh no. It was, it was probably as rigid as Harry Potter's want. My churro was very too messy. And it snapped in pieces. It was a very unpleasant eating experience. And so yeah, I was a bit let down. I mean, I'm not a huge sweet guy, but you know, when I do eat sweets, I hope I will enjoy them. This was just not enjoyable. The chicken bake, I also felt was a little lacking. Maybe a little too bready. You know, it was, it was fine, but it was, you know, I think the hot dog is, I mean, that is the premiere food item at Costco. Yeah. Even though I was just saying it didn't really stand out as part of the ensemble. I'm allowed to contradict myself. Well, I'm gonna say bad outing by. That's what it sounds like. I'm looking at I'm looking at the Harry Potter wiki again and under the wand. It does say, oh, by the way, it's very rigid. It does say. Yeah. BTW's very Richard. And also BT dubs, the wand is a big supporter of blue lives matter. Yeah, that's weird. The wand. It's sentient? So I've got a conservative political beliefs? I've got a Costco question since we're all around the same age and we're from the three different parts of the country. The east, the middle and the west, what is your relationship with Costco growing up? I mean, I know Costco is a thing in the 90s. But my wife was saying that's like, you know, she would look forward to going to Costco, Costco pizza. If there was a birthday party, that was like and to me that Costco pizza is like something you eat like if you're in a bind. It's not something you look forward to. Is that just a Southern California thing or? No, I think, you know, well, first off, it might be because Southern California doesn't really have its own or at least until recently its own like pizza culture. You know, it's like, not like there's like an LA style pizza, like the good pizza out here is from other styles that are created LA outlets. Let me tell you, Costco cheese pizza in LA, you're doing pretty good as far as pizza goes. Yeah, but I also think there's just like a, I think it's just a largely nostalgia thing. For me, I like that I like the pizzas all right. I think it's like it's very cheap. That's the big thing for me. Especially for a full pie, it's just so cheap. But I have more nostalgia for the hot dogs and growing up it was always like, I get to go to Costco you have to have all these free samples while my dad is shopping. And that was the samples were as big as the hot dog, but that hot dog on the way out, it was very, very excited to have. Mitch, you weren't at Costco family, right? You're more Sam's Club or what did you have over there? We had BJs, which DJs. That's right. I don't know who owns BJ's, but somebody owns BJ's. And I told Nick, that's the first time I saw sonic on screen at the BJ's Wholesale Club. I saw the little blue guy running around and was amazed. And I mean, we didn't.

"AEW? I'll talk to Tony. Let's see what we can do. Okay, not a no. Yeah. All right, yeah, all right. That's pretty good. Okay. I mean, what capacity? I mean, why is that where managers, if we were like, it's funny because we were like, if we were trying to be heels, we just start crying when we were cutting promos. The audience would be able to see right through us. I mean, I can't be threatening. Yeah, I don't know. I'm hungry, Henry, maybe one appearance. That might be it for us. I don't know if I don't know if honestly, now that I've thought through, I don't think we are worth anything. We don't have a role beyond beyond fandom. We could be we could be a spectator that got punched in the head. Like we could be seeing like that like a wrestler gets mad at us and punch them. I mean, even that would do a bad job with, so. Well, maybe when the olive oil covered crowbar slips out of hungry Henry's hands, you can see where it lands. I'm the audience where it lands on my head. Yeah, I think I can. I think if excalibur pitched the doughboys to Tony Khan, he'd get the same answer that the Costco guy got from the CEO. I will kill you. Or just a simple, huh? Who? I went to the Marina del Rey Costco, which is kind of my home Costco. And so the one thing about Costco was the food court has required membership for a couple of years now, which is a bummer. It used to be able to accept all comers, but this is one of their cost saving measures. And they got a few different things. You know, Mitch you know in the year of our lord 2021, no meat shall I eat? I am not eating hot dogs from hot dog month. I am vegetarian. But I did still get the hot dog and soda combo, which is a buck 50. It's a steamed dog. It's a very good quality Kirkland dog. I took it home loose to my wife. And I had a bun. Why don't you just tell us your bun? A lot of these places are not going to just sell you a bun. At Costco, it's so and also it's such a great value. And now, you know what? Nellie cooked up the hot dog. She ate it. Why don't you just work too hot dog? So you give her a hot dog in a bun with a loose hot dog. She wanted just the meat. She's not like gonna have the bun. She wanted just the meat. No, that's like the perfect snack for her. I don't like you run around town with fucking loose hot dogs. I don't like it. I don't have them in my pocket. It's trapped in foil. I'm not a fucking maniac. It's a great bun from Costco. I'll say this. It's got sesame seeds on it. I really like it and it's a great delivery system for the dog if you actually eat the dog. But the bun on its own, I thought was nice and I got a Sierra mist with that and it was a good soda. Mitch, what did you do hot dog wise from Costco? I got myself a hot dog. I got a hot dog, I got the hot dog meal. All right, so this is how it started off for me. I went to the I went to the Costco and denim. Where is denim relative to you? Denham, denham, sorry, not denham. Damn near killed him. It was just waiting there. Denim is there's legacy place at denim. You know, what is denim good for? I mean, what is there to say about denim? I don't know. My ex-boyfriend's family lives there. Oh. That's like that place. It's a pretty little, it's just like a classic Massachusetts New England town suburb. Yeah. Yeah, it's fine. And I drove whatever the 25 minutes over there to denim, not done him. I was going to say that I like a good den ham, though. I like to have one more. Nice juicy, ram and my dad. But I drove over there and I was on the phone with my friend. And I see that I just was like, I wonder what time they close. It's 5 45. I look it closes at 6. So I see this. I get freaked out because I was just sitting in the car taking my time. I didn't care. And I had to run in there and it was fucking soap packed wags. It was packed to the gills because it was, was it Friday afternoon? It was like Friday night before a close, you know what I mean? So it was just, it was packed with people. It's a zoo always at Costco, but especially so on the weekends. But is this just to be clear? This is one of the locations where the food court is indoors. Yes. Yeah, okay, got it. Which is also was actually what it was a Saturday at almost 6 p.m.. So that's even worse. Just everyone's off work. People are all there and it was there was a holiday the next Monday, so I feel like so I feel like people were just all over the place. And I didn't know what to do, so I went to the food court that was indoors first because I didn't want to because I also had to pick up hot dogs. I had to pick up Kirkland signature hot dogs for spoiler alert for a double that we're going to do are already have done. I don't know what fucking order we're in. But it'll be next week. All right, we'll be out next week. So I had to pick up some hot dogs from Costco. And so I was like, I'm just gonna run the risk of not getting those hot dogs and eating at the just eating at the food court. That's the assignment. That's the right move. I will just say real quick Mitch that that food court will close abruptly at closing. So if you're there, you know, they'll just they'll lower the window on you. They're ready to get out of there, right at 6 p.m.. So yeah, that was the right move. Well, I made the right move. I got in that line and it was a pretty it was a pretty it was a pretty thick line. And I thick line. Long line. Okay. It was a girthy line, and..

"Zone. Chubby Fox. It's called Lake Michigan, not like Chicago. Tubby assholes, not like slim and slender Detroit. Yeah. I went to I was visiting my dad a couple years ago and we had it was just he and I and we sat down at buddies. And we just got like the smallest pizza you could get. And it was just like a four slice. And the antipasto salad. And we split that and we had each had an extra slice to take home with us. And then this family family of four sat down and they got a large pizza, the salad that comes in like a 60 gallon drum, just covered in a covered in Italian dressing. And they got something else too. And I was just the amount of the amount of food they had on their table, which is mind boggling to me. And they demolished it all. And I was like, good for you and good for your cardiologist. Excaliburs, are you sure this was maybe before you didn't know us and it was the doughboys here? It could have been. It could have been us. Yeah. We're confused as a weird family sometimes. And maybe you song was with us. Hey, speaking of pizza, you know what else has pizza? Costco's food court. Now, hold on a second. Yeah. Before we, that was a great segue, so it pains me to say. Hold on. You have another course. You have another mask question you want to get in. I mean, there were more mass questions than the one off the top of my head was just as hard to eat with the mask, which there was a good answer to why. That's truly was. But it's dog dough bark fest month. That's right. And I got my dogs, wolfie and germa. And I want to know what scoby are you a fan of? You got to need, you got any furry Friends? Are you a fan of, are you a pet fan? Do you have any pets? Did you have them growing up? I did. Well, I'm a fan of animals large and small. I had a dog growing up and I'm included in that, by the way. Yeah, I had a dog growing up and then I guess I was dating a girl and we got cats together, she we broke up, she left and I inherited the cats and so now I've got two cats. And I never thought of myself as a cat person, but I've got I've got two cats I've got pinky, who is a 20 year old Siamese who is deaf, she is missing her bottom right fang and has stomach cancer and has been has been going strong for the last 14 months with the cancer. And I've got noodle who when he was a kitten and we adopted him, was called noodle because he was just like the small floppy thing. And now he is, he's not a Maine coon, which is a very large domesticated cat, but he is about the size of that. And he's maybe 13 pounds and will wow. Jump off the nightstand onto my stomach at three in the morning. And 13 pounds doesn't seem like a lot, but when it's concentrated on four little pause and you're completely fast asleep that is perhaps one of the most unpleasant ways to wake up. Wow. Got too much AEW on in the house. I know. Noodles. Murals copying. God bless pinky. I hope pinky is doing well. And how old is noodle? He's about 13, I think, 12 or 13. All right, good age. See why is another good question I have. But now we can segue back into new school. Italian. Much like pizza. Thank you. Master at work. I have another thing. That was another perfect segue. But I got to know just you've been around a lot of big folks, you know, a lot of wrestlers can eat. They can eat a lot. Who's the person that you remember just eating the most food? Who's the biggest eater you know in that world? So this is some super inside baseball. But this guy, manabu nakanishi, he was you might know him as Curaçao in WCW during the 90s. He is now retired, but he would have he was famous for what they would call monster mornings in Japan and he would in Japan, breakfast is, you know, it's like a big ritual around breakfast before you go off to work. And so when we would stay in these hotels in Japan, he would go down to the breakfast buffet. And he would have literally just an entire table covered in little plates of food and would just pick one thing here, pick one thing here. And you'd probably take in 6000 calories who knows, but it was and he would do it every single morning. And so I've never seen anybody eat that much food that consistently. And so madam nakanishi's monster mornings was he a big guy? Yeah, yeah, he's like he was probably like 6 four, maybe like two 62 70, and he's I was there on one of his last tours right before he retired. And he'd been wrestling for 30 years. I think he was an Olympic wrestler as well for the Japanese national team. And so he had a lot of miles on his body. He wasn't moving extremely well, but around the breakfast table, he was very nimble. Wow, that's awesome. Monster morning sounds like forever morning DJs. It sounds like what our show would be called. Monster mornings with the spoon. Listen to monster mornings yet with a spoon man and wags. The toilet flushing noise. What you talking about Willis? I think that covers well, I had an idea last week. I told Nick this, but I think that, you know, there's like rankings and W I was saying that the referee should get rankings too. This was my big idea. And I think that it's kind of a genius idea. And besides that, I guess I have nothing else to say, but can wags and I be in.

"We're here with our guest excalibur discussing this week's chain Costco for dog dobar fest 2021. Costco founded in 1983 Kirkland Washington. San Diego based price club in 1993. Yeah, not that old. Price club creates it. It merged with price club in the 90s, and then now they're one company. Has over 800 locations where much older. I'm not much older. If you were dating Costco, it would be like a winter spring relationship. What is that called? May December? May December? Yeah there it is. Their hot dog combo is famously a dollar and 50 cents, and I have this quote in the intro, but I'll say it for you guys. This is a quote from the CEO. I came to Jim Senegal, the founder of Costco once and I said, Jim, we can't sell this hot dog for a buck 50. We are losing our rear ends. And he said, if you raise the effing hot dog, I will kill you. Figure it out. So that was over ten years ago. The hot dog's still a buck 50. This is the company you love so much where you threaten to kill the person. It was in good fun. Do you really get the good fun from the context of the written word? It could have been a really heated conversation. Yeah, I guess it could have been very harsh violent threat from a soup. I mean, every time I say it to you on here, I mean it sincerely. Let's talk hot dogs generally. Excalibur went are you a hot dog fan? Do you have any hot dog favorites? I am a tubed meat enthusiast. I love almost any and all hot dogs, sausages, bratwurst, whatever you got given to me, and I'll take them. I grew up in Detroit. And so I have an affinity for the Coney Island, the chili dog with just a little bit of onion a little bit of mustard. To me, that's the thing that tastes like home. And so if I travel in every week for TV and if I lay over in Detroit, I always make an effort to go and get at least one Coney dog, just while I'm there. Wow. Yeah. Do you have a favorite spot for a Detroit Coney dog? So the big debate is Lafayette versus American. Those are the two original places. I guess I come from an American Coney Island household. And so that for me is good. I grew up there was a place called national Coney Island that was right by right by my dad's house. And so. Oh, yes. When I'm when I go back to visit him, that's usually on either on the way to his house from the airport around the way to the airport. That's my first and last stop. And sometimes both, so it's not something that you can really exist out here in California, though. There was some guy like 15 years ago, actually opened a Detroit Coney Island place like on sunset in LA. And the business model to me didn't make any sense because it was this very hyper regional food item and he imported Detroit beer or not imported. But you know what I mean? You've had it shipped in. And it was open for like, I don't know, 18 months, maybe two years. It's like, this guy must have lost his ass on that place, but oh man. Yeah. Yeah. I love the idea of trying to like, you know, bring the food sensibilities of other cities to LA, but it feels like it's a tough, it doesn't translate a lot of the time, which is sad to me. Sometimes it does. There's some that take off, but there's a lot of them don't work for whatever reason. Well, the Coney dog is I think so, so Midwest regional and it's also a thing I think that even confuses someone if you're not from there because you're like, wait, I thought Coney Island was in New York and it was like, no, the Coney dog is a style of dog that's in, you know, that's in the Midwest national Coney Island Mitch we reviewed when we did our show and wrote a couple of years ago. Yeah. At a lovely place. I will say they are confusing. It is like a, it's a Greek restaurant that has like a Greek salad and fries, but then like the Coney dog is the big thing to get. It was a confusing like I didn't understand when I went in there. I didn't know what I was getting into, really. And I enjoyed it quite a bit. I know that there was a Detroit style dog place in LA to wags and I don't know if that is still open. I think for LA more so there's like the trends of, you know, like Detroit pizza is a trend now, and now there's a bunch of pop up places that have Detroit pizza and things like that. And more so if you do like taste the Chicago or whatever, I feel like it's harder to make a thing like that. Work in LA, if it's like a specific except for that red except for Sonny McLean's, which is just drinking. It's just a bar. Yeah, that's just a bar. This is a bar. That's known for hot dogs. Not known for anything. But a lot of the what I think of Detroit now, I just think it Detroit pizza after buddies and jets. I still don't even think of the dogs. Yeah, Detroit pizza, I think now is having a kind of to borrow a phrase a moment. It's like nationally, it seems like that there's Detroit pizza popping up all over the place. And especially now that the chains are,.

"They would, they would make a chicken breast like a charcoal briquette. It was awful. But they were the only caterers that we could get at the beginning of the pandemic. And they, I guess, you know, we just we just had them. So we had to eat this terrible catering for 16 months. Every single week. And a lot of people actually just once things started opening up a little, would actually like Uber eats stuff to the building in an effort to not eat the free food. It was that bad. Wow. Also, also these guys had these are like huge Trump voter guys that were like where like their maga hats and stuff. And then we have a pretty good first yeah, the caterers. And we have a pretty pretty diverse roster of talent. We have. Trans people, gay people, people of color, all this sort of stuff. And they're just serving food to sunny kiss, who is gender gender neutral or gender fluid. And I'm wondering, what are they thinking, what is sunny thinking? All this stuff 8 and it was so not only were they awful people, but the food was terrible too. Oh my God, that sucks. Well, maybe they took it from Trump likes a steak well done, which is one of the psycho psycho personality traits about him is that he likes a steak. Well done with ketchup with ketchup. Yeah. Which maybe, maybe it's the Trump school of cooking, where the chicken was just extra well done. Which is the, which is the worst. That's when a chicken is dried out like that. It's terrible. Yeah. You were living. So I have more important questions. You wear a mask during broadcasts. And how is it eating through the mask? Is that difficult? Are you getting, see, I told you why because it was more important question. This is a more important question now. This is just what you want to know. The Mandalorian question. Probing hard hitting topics. The thing about the mask is it has terrible peripheral vision. And so I mean, literally, anything below my straight ahead of me, I can't see. So when I do have to eat with the mask on, I have to physically turn my neck downward and look at my plate in order to get my or else it just gets everywhere and it's terrible. And oftentimes, people have come up to me and extended extended their hand to a handshake or whatever. And I'm just looking at them like a completely oblivious because the peripheral vision I can't even see their hand up. Actually, I did that to see him punk on TV the other week. So a lot of people think you're a true asshole. Yeah. I mean, think and know, but. That's no good, so yeah, if you're you put something up to your mouth, you realize you grab a chicken wing off of JR's plate. That could cause trouble. Oh, it's not. I don't want to take anything off jars plate. He's a senior guy at the booth, man. He gets first dibs on it all. Well, now that that important question out of the way, you also are, you live in San Diego, correct? You're in San Diego area. Yeah. And we talked burritos a little bit. Are you a burrito fan? Are your California burrito fan? And I know that we already talked about some of your favorite burritos, but let's go over it again because this was private talk. This was without wax. I am a burrito fan. I love I do love a California burrito. There's no shortage of great burritos here in San Diego. But I would say I definitely prefer tacos to two burritos. Burritos obviously much easier on the go. You're eating in your car. It's better better than trying to get four or 5 tacos in your mouth while you're right. Yeah, yeah. Burritos just said to me, I mean, look, I know you're a taco fan. I'm a taco man. Yeah. But burritos if it's a good, I think that the issue is, is that sometimes you're just not sure if you can get a terrible taco is like tossing the trash. It's a bad meal. You know what I'm saying? Well, I think the ish to excalibur's point. I think that a burrito in and of itself is a meal. Whereas a taco like, you know, you know, honestly, it's kind of like hot dogs. It's like how many hot dogs comprise a meal? I feel like I need probably. I need at least two, maybe three, and with tacos we're talking, you know, four top, I guess we get a three taco combo maybe with beans and rice or with chips, that's maybe a meal, but I feel like I need three or four just as tacos on their own. If we're talking the soft shell corn tortillas, one taco is disappointing. You know, that's, you know, you gotta have three, I think, is the minimum for a taco order. But here's what I like is that about the taco is that the protein really shines. And so if you get like a good like Al pastor or like a good languid, it's just like, oh man, this is the best vehicle for it. Just like a small little cradle of tortilla and then whatever salsa you wanna put on it and some maybe some cilantro onions. It's so good. Do you have a favorite type of taco? I love just a nice fish taco. There's a place down in Bonita, which is not too far from the border called TJ oyster bar. And they've got two locations about a quarter mile from one another. There's one that it's just kind of like a lunch counter. And then they opened up a one that's like quarter mile away that's more of a sit down restaurant. But the lunch counter, they have, I think the best fish tacos in the city. And then they also have fried oyster tacos, which are amazing and all their salsa. Every Mexican restaurant, you know, like a family in Mexican restaurant that has their own kind of salsa recipe. But I really love the TJ oyster bar salsa. Sounds awesome. Wow. Yeah, that sounds great. We're gonna get back down that way. Mom?.

"To our world. It's so excited to have you. I was talking about with you a little bit before while we're waiting for Mitch to join us with his tuna sandwich that he's still eating. But I think I can speak for both of us in that you are a big part of how we both were both lapsed wrestling fans were lapsed wrestling fans, as an old school WCW fan, Mitch was a WWE fan. And that was me. Attitude era, and you via PWG, which got me back into wrestling and got us both back into wrestling and aw, which got us back into wrestling following wrestling every week. Like you're such a huge part of that. So we have you to thank for getting us back into this world. Well, I mean, it's great to have you guys back and it's great to have all these fans that wrestling with something that they enjoyed, maybe when they're high school, early college days, and life catches up with everybody and now that people have got time and there's an engaging product out there. I think it's awesome that people are coming back to wrestling. And you know, that was kind of the goal for AEW. One of the goals for AEW is to bring back those fans. And so it's really cool to hear that it's working. And you know, I mean, also, on a personal level, PWG was promotion that I helped found in LA in 2003 and the fact that it's still running and that it's people that people still want to come almost 20 years later. It's mind boggling to me. So it's really been awesome ride. Yeah, we started coming Nicki. You went to a show I believe before I did, but we started coming closer. Everybody Mike Carlson, yeah, everybody Mike Carlson was taking us to PWG shows. Which is basically you got to see this thing. And he was right. I'm glad I did. It was great. Yeah, there was that lesion hall up in receipt of the rally. I mean, there was a hint of air conditioning, but that was about it. And we would be it would be a hundred and 105° in the afternoon and then in the building it would somehow be a 120° and we'd pack 500 people in there. And then you could have you'd have guys wrestling for 30 minutes and just like busting their ass and then the ambient temperature of the building just continues to rise throughout the night. And these guys are putting on world class performances in front of 500 lucky fans. It's just wild. Yeah, absolutely amazing. Those older shows. Yeah, I just remember fans bringing their own beer pitchers because they didn't have all the glassware there. So, you know, you could bring a pitcher and pay it for them to fill it up. But yeah, it was a really unique space. Bad info for you to find out why. Did you just have your picture on you anyways? Just kept this in my trunk. Yeah. Yeah, the men's room there. It always felt like it was the men's room of the boys room of a condemned middle school. It was like there was such a grimy feel to everything there, but it was so awesome to have so much character and those shows were incredible. Yeah, and the legion hall and receipt of sadly is no longer with us. Right now. Finally, it had been condemned and then knocked down. I think they were turning it into a retirement home. But we've actually we're in downtown LA now at the globe theater, which is such a huge upgrade.

"That's head gum dot com slash live. See you there, baby. I came to Jim Senegal once and I said Jim, we can't sell this hot dog for a buck 50. We are losing our rear ends. And he said, if you raise the effing hot dog, I will kill you. Figure it out. This quote by club store CEO W Craig jelinek recalling a conversation with founder Jim Senegal as first reported by Todd Matthews of 4.25 business, has repeatedly gone viral over the years. The good humor directness of Senegal's language is arresting, but even more so in an age of cynical bottom line only corporate behavior is the founders focus not on profits, but on the consumer. Whether calculated or not, this customer forward approaches help the big box store accumulate a fiercely loyal membership. And it has a similarly loyal workforce in the famously high turnover retail sector, the chain's minimum wage was increased to $16 an hour in early 2021, and more than half of its employees make at least $25 an hour. The chain is known for its value conscious and ever changing selection of goods. Bulk items like gallon sized mustard jugs and 30 packs of paper towels, alongside an eclectic mix of errata like active wear and sectionals and laptops, plus an occasional obscene luxury, like a $17,000 bottle of whisky. But the stores are just as known for their prepared food from the free samples, which have obviously taken a backseat in the age of COVID to enormous rotisserie chickens to the food court, where that famous buck and two quarters hot dog soda combo can be found. The sausage is present chases to a popular Hebrew national card outside of San Diego store of absorbed former competitor price club. And for decades, the chain in fact sold Hebrew national Franks, but in 2009, looking to limit costs while retaining quality, the company began manufacturing its own Kirkland signature dogs. The gambit paid off, and today, long line still stream from its food courts from open to close, with famished shoppers hoping to grab some post spree pizza, chicken bakes and churros. But mostly hot dogs and absurd value from a brand built on absurd values. To again, quote, CEO jelinek, by having the discipline to say you are not going to be able to raise your price, you have to figure it out. We keep it at one 50 and make enough money to get a fair return. This week on doughboys, we continue to bark fest 2021, a monthlong grip of hot dogs and pet dogs as we return to Costco..

Limits On Toilet Paper And Cleaning Supplies Are Back At Costco
"Go to costco or your local big box. Perhaps you got toilet paper on your list. Maybe some water cleaning supplies as well. But when you go to load up your car you see the signs that say two per customer or whatever. The limit is not as you might think. Thanks to reprise of the apocalyptic stockpiling early on in this thing. It's a supply chain again. But as marketplace's amanda peach reminds us limits on how much consumers can buy can backfire on retailers. Trying to sell it when there was a run on certain products in pandemic early days. The explanation was simple. Basically consumers freaked out. Ken boyer studies operations management at ohio state university and people heard. There's gonna be a shortage so they went to buy more but shortages now are much more about shipping delays and other supply chain constraints boyer says take toilet paper even if it's manufactured in the us the chemicals to make it might come from china or thailand. They're sitting on a boat. Offshore that becomes a delayed the toilet paper manufacturers sometimes. The shortage is in packaging or containers like cans for soda or bottles for water in melbourne. Florida alley strands. Saw a sign at the grocery store. At limiting the number of cases of water customers could purchase to to literally. My first thought was hurting. Strands checked her phone. No hurricane warnings so she thought what's going on with bottled water. She bought two cases and had her son. Do the same. You drink the bottle of water. But he was getting his shopping part for me. Because is there going to be a run on water. And that's why stores have to be careful about signaling. Shortages with product limits on we realize goods are scarce. They become more valuable to us. Care me. Burke is a behavioral economist with the university of southern california. I might not new toy right now. But i know toilet. Paper is scarce. So i may go stock up on it as much as i can at the moment. In burke says that unnecessary purchasing can add pressure to supply chains at exactly the wrong time. I'm amanda pitcher for

It's happening that's like almost double in price, and I'm very scared that it's just going to get worse and worse. I don't want to upset you, but it's definitely going to get worse and you can already see it as I say. People tell me they drive into McDonald's. You can't get anything for really Maybe one meal. A small meal for five bucks used to be able to get a lot for five bucks. You see, the cost of labor is going through the roof in order to keep people working. Even low skilled or no skilled labour because they're competing with the federal welfare state now. That is your tax dollars, So that's driving up prices. There's shortages of items that's driving up prices. And of course, inflation is driving up prices. I went also in Leesburg. To a gas station called sheets and I went to fill up my car. And the the premium price was unbelievable yet it's shot way up and it's not just them. I don't blame them. It's because we were energy independent. Prior to this man taking over and moving into the Oval Office. We're not energy independent anymore. You know, OPEC is back in action. And, of course, Russia gets their pipeline.

"Imagine you know if you're in a walmart there's going to be skippy and there's going to be jif peanut butter and there's going to be different sizes and there's gonna be walmart's brand but in a costco. They basically hit those two suppliers against one another and say basically fight for this shelf space. If you wanna be in our stores and serve our customers you need to give us the best price on your product so obvious that naturally drives some competition. That is not as prevalent in kind of your typical retailers. And then on top of that. Another huge part for for. Costco is kirkland signature. Their private label brand. What kind of their goal. There is to take the nationally branded products in have something. That's at least twenty percent cheaper on comparable quality and over the course of obviously thirty plus years they've consistently met that promise to their cardholders and people have great regard for the brand now. So you see things like in k. Cups for example coffee. You know they spent a couple years where they ensured the product organic ensured. It was free trade insured. The cups were recyclable. But also over that period they cut the price by about ten percent per unit. So if you look at costco. Now a kirkland k. Cups going to be like thirty two cents. If you wanna buy the the starbucks cake in costco where they negotiate a good price for it. It's going to be forty percent more expensive so they just don't fantastic job in terms of private labels so you know there's other stuff that goes into the but those are some of the big things that jump out to me so let's talk about the membership model. Because i think part of what people don't realize we look at the financials of the business almost all the profit is just literally take the number of memberships times membership costs and like that's the prophet right. Everything else is kind of a pass through an essentially at cost and so this membership. How much does it cost on annual basis right now. So they have the two basic memberships are the sixty dollar one. Which is the gold star kind of basic level than they have an executive membership for one twenty. But as part of that one twenty. I think it's up to a thousand bucks a span. You get two percent back..

It's marinated in lime and soy sauce with sesame seeds and then you just thought in the fridge and then you eat. It smells really good. Before we get anyone's hopes up we do have to say. This is currently limited to hawaii and la really. Yeah that's lame i know. Oh really. I mean wow It's so that's sauce perfect frozen. This tastes like you went to a restaurant and got like the best portable. Oh you know what i would do with that. Does costco sell those little seaweed salad. Oh yeah exactly. I think we have some in our cupboard right now. You mean the no not the snacks the lake like. Oh yeah do yeah. It'd be permanent. That's incredible perfect. This is fantastic. Wait what are the stats. So it says. Two hundred and seventy calories sixteen grams of fat twenty three grams of protein. It says seven smart points but it's like primarily salmon so if you know Love that is so much better than expected. I was a little creeped out by it. I was like their customer chunks of salmon. And if it's not good fish it's like if it's fishy you're going to be in trouble but that is totally worth it. If you live in hawaii or los angeles you should run and get it. If you don't live in those places you should consider moving. Yeah so. I i highly recommend if you can get your hands on this product. Get the product. That's what i would say. It's very good all right. Moving on epicure. Ian specialty. Truffle parmesan or parmesan and black garlic seasoning. This is a big gigantic bottle of seasoning. And it's like. I think everybody is trying these days to do their own. Version of like everything bagel or like combo. Seasonings like mashups. So this one has black garlic parm and truffle. That sounds like a great combination. I put it on my finger taped to lick your finger on and stick it in the bag and we can do that because we're married. If if we were in the same room it would not be appropriate. But you just try it on your on your hand. I'm going to try it on the chicken. I think because it's like i'm afraid to try and alone What is it like. don't need to be afraid. Good on the chicken. It's incredible on my finger on your finger. I really taste the truffle ten calories. That's pretty great. Yeah it's basically parmesan with seasoning. I feel like it's zero smart points. I feel like people that are afraid of truffles. In general like it sounds like a very fancy. Maybe i don't know unexpected. You don't know if you'll like it. It's just delicious. It's just mommy savory yummy nece it really isn't in the leading ingredient is black truffle salt. So it's nice and salty. How's the sodium on this. Does it say for a teaspoon. It's three fifty. How much sodium isn't a teaspoon of salt like. Is this straight up salt sodium levels. No because it's usually. I think a quarter is like six hundred milligrams but don't quote me on it. Okay so this is great. Try with the chicken and yeah. It's really good with that chicken. A lot of fillers in it. It's got like garlic powder and spices and cellulose natural flavors. A little olive oil contains milk cheese culture. There's a lot of stuff going on here. But i really like it. I wonder i would love to try to cook with the. Oh yes if you mix that with penco and like crusted something. No no no. If you just took these little chicken bites did just that it would be amazing. Yes i would love that. I would love to. We should try again next up. we have. I'm sorry this product. I thought it was weird. When erin sent me a photo of it and i was like i guess by. She seemed very excited about it. When i saw it and personnels like this is even weirder than i thought it would be. It says karoon or corron karoon hand. Braided string cheese. And it's like this giant hong of braided string cheese that you have to like pull apart and the braid itself has thirteen serving so once you open this package you are left with thirteen servings of cheese it and they're not individually out when i cut ours up by look you did too. We'll you strung it look at it. Well i just unraveled it. So how many servings is this. I guess you have to weigh. Oh yours is cool. We'd like chopped ours. You have like a long string. that's cool. I embraced it. I mean it tastes like string cheese. I feel like this product is totally unnecessary. Unless you're making a giant pizza for like a lot of people and you wanna mozzarella and pull it apart. I feel like i'm never excited about something. Being handled in a food product. Like i would buy handmade. You know vase but something about hand. Braided mozzarella's not exciting to me wait. You're saying somebody braided this with their hands with their hands in my hand braided. That's horrible. I know i would them. Mechanically braided it. Seems like it would only serve one purpose if you cooked it like as is maybe like an stromboli or something because that has the the long breaded. Komo's like it's like a cow zone but not but yeah. I don't know there's no purpose for this. The cheese tastes good though it's fine. It tastes like string cheese. It's nothing that interesting. I didn't even i know i read those words jamie but it didn't occur to me that there was like some some dude braiding the string cheese. This fingerprints all over and now i'm really upset. I'm sure he wore gloves. Wait braided exactly. I don't think he was wearing clubs. Go like those food. Prep gloves that you can buy. I'm sure that he had worn gloves or she. Should we call the company and ask. We should start inquiry. Whose hands braided the upsetting. I mean we go to sushi restaurants and they hand. Roll there the roles so different. They wear gloves all right. We have to move on now. I'm upset about all the people fondling my food. Hopefully nobody fondled these. These are the fresh gourmet crispy. Dili's pickle flavored fried cucumbers again. So many things about this particular product. Confuse the heck out of me for starters. They are dill pickle flavored fried cucumbers So why not. Just fry the pickles. Yeah why flavor it with jill. I don't know but this has been sitting on our table for two weeks so i'm really anxious to try this. Okay the next issue. I have with it. I don't think you guys know this. Because i have a bag. You have a baggy see the size of this bag. It's large and it's packed but guess how many servings are in this bag eighteen. Guess again six hundred. It's about eighty nine servings. Well that's the big problem is the serving size one and a half tablespoons is one and a half tablespoon forty calories each three grams of fat. So if you eat like a normal serving of chips of this it's going to have like twenty something grams of fat. We have to start by thinking about this product. As a croutons swap or a tortilla chips swap strips swap not swap for potato is sink now and says on the bag to top it on hamburgers in and stuff like that like sandwiches..

They call the tow truck but it standstill traffic like we can be there in an hour. So i'm like whoa. what so. This is four forty five right all the tire places because of pandemic times are closing at five o'clock. I don't know what the fuck i'm gonna do. Towing is like a complete and utter bitch. Because they're like it's gonna be an hour it actually took them an hour and forty five minutes to get to me. And i was like. Oh my god where am i going to get towed right so i found one place in a bad area and i was like. Oh no this is not good. But then if i got told a little bit further i could get to a costco and house. Lying costco's a win ask is a win because one it's costco right to chapin cosco get a five gallon barrel of a cheese balls so i ended up getting towed. It was only two miles and it cost me a hundred dollars and it also did you sit in the tow truck i did. Yeah this is honestly the. The guy was nice but like hundred dollars. A what a what a frigging rip off. And that was your like you had to pay through insurance. Yes well i have to like get reimbursed because the truth is i called insurance with like well. It's we can call for you but like honestly if you've got somebody on the way block you know anyway I get to costco. And the guy's really nice. I dropped my car off all shed. I pay the hundred bucks for towing. And then i go in where. You're going to need to tires. 'cause they're both low. The one is destroyed. So that's six hundred dollars. You know five or six hundred bucks. Because i have a german engineered car the jeep where like anytime. I need any by lose. Something guaranteed seven hundred dollars new windshield wipers. Its hundred dollars. I love my car but like it is like it's made by bmw. And so you get those. You feel that bmw price. Yeah whenever there's something. I have spark plugs and like you said like wipers. Replace him four fifty. I'm like oh. My god i think minis as like an exclusive club pay for that. That's the blood of children Joined that show so a drop a car off. This is not exciting at that point other than i. It's exciting very stressful. And i had to go to the bathroom twice while sitting on the side of the highway. So i opened up my back door and just like sat in my car and pissed out the side of the car. People driving by must've been like what the hell i had. Where do you go. You're on the side of the highway. And then you don't because you don't sit in your car in that situation because The that's yeah So i stood on the side. It's really loud and doesn't really talk to anybody so just like getting dark and i'm in la. Gosh i'm at costco. Dropped my car off. And i go inside. And they're like You know going to take an hour and a half or something. Go inside. And i realized like costco is is good pretty much everywhere you go but i was one hundred percent the only white person that i saw lasco. Yeah and it was packed. I was in definitely a spanish or mexican area. And i was like i had these dreams of my car like going back to your car is done and then have it be like underwater lighting and in may bouncing man with like like the date. Someone died your son. Four and a half jack of vinyl sticker of their face like like an angelic kid on a pillow. For sure. we're gonna live. You're going to get there with this car. Yeah so anyway. That was kind of a stressful moment. And it really reminded me. I hate la. I know you deal excited. I hate it in. Maybe energy brought it on me. I feel. I wonder if this is happening. I wonder if the our mindset or what. But i feel like. I've always felt this way ever since i've moved here like fourteen years ago. Is that like la works for me. Like for whatever. Reason i get up there. I seem to have good luck. I like meet people easily. I like. I don't know how to describe it but i kind of feel that way in san francisco. Sometimes where when like san francisco's kind of tough on me where i get lost a lot. I lose money. I lose like like this city is not very welcoming to me. So what do you think. That's like the city or furnace. Be confused me. i'm i'm a country. Boy loves to be a city. Yeah you I think most people would be like. Oh you were in a city black. I wasn't and so does like suck as a city does gone right. It's not easy to get around. And i find like i dunno man. It feels like being sort of like a slave to the environment where it's like. Oh okay we're gonna go meet over here. That'll be an hour and a half to get three miles. Like i don't wanna do that. Yeah in san diego. It's like everything's ten minutes is i'm sorry. Yeah i think i think. Different cities have fulfills jam. I totally understand that it was funny. The reason i brought this whole story up. Because i was saying to us. I remember saying like i need to myself and more situations where craziness happens and then i drive home later. And it's like crazy. Yeah it's like six hundred dollars so what we did. The whole thing cost me six hundred fifty bucks. Fuck really plus gas flown to hawaii for that about. Yeah no i know i know. And how much of will you get reimbursed. A hundred dollars. Oh my god just with the towing damn yeah. Do you think it was just something around downtown. La just think. I'd probably just drove on nail tire flat. And then i tried to as i was sitting there and traffic. It was probably deflating more and more and tearing at the rubber and then by the time i took off it was like you know couldn't handle it. Oh my goodness otherwise. Somebody's stabbed my tired and it was. You know. maybe maybe that's no. I think it was the girl from many episodes ago as you. Guys have.
