"Hi It's Bernie Bach with a topcoat audio clip episode five, three, three. Talking to you on the. Speaker APP soup you're listening and you WANNA see imagery that goes along with these thoughts about. Collaborative. Ticking than that speaker, apple shares some screengrabs. If you listen inside the APP alternatively, there's website inside you that I e were employed posting this ended up, you know play what you're hearing. I WanNa, do collaborative, not taking i WanNa talk to you about that because. I'm about to start another year with students in a creative media did join a nation and game design program three different degrees on the clonmel digital campus of the limerick. Institute of Technology on. It's important that I get from those students how they do not taking effectively and how I might share some of my highest value notes with them. So here's the process it all starts by reading. I have subscriptions I pay for and a river of News I. Get the subs come from things that are on the cover art for this episode, different premium places like the Washington. Post the Atlantic New York, times, the Irish Times tipperary live and several others. As I read through these flows of information. alantic things sometimes, the annotations are very simple. I just saved instant paper to an instant paper allows me to annotate or make notes or to grab pieces of content and make it into distilled nuggets of information. So I read online and I had this one tap sharing-mechanism work wherever I read sometimes I read on the kindle and the kindle is interesting because not only do the books I get. Appear on kindle. But I can email to my kindle were documents from emails from student essays from variety of sources. Were documents become readable in the kindle, which means they can be annotated and shared on the kindle. These processes of reading. And annotating for sharing and up in a place called read. Wise. Wise is clever. Application hasn't API and it allows me to that API and through another service called hypothesis to share stuff that I see through the chrome web browser into the service called read wise and then read wise allows me to push out A. Piece of information, premium information to students or to other readers an instant paper does the same thing allows me if I like a piece of content for that content show up as one of the ten pieces of content shared through the instant paper out. These things are collaborative, for example. If I'm using. If I'm using the same annotation technology is another person. Hypothesis is one of those sharable piece of technology. I can see people annotating and making notes some things they find online. The hypothesis chrome extension allows you to. Grab a piece of text graph, put a note or two next to it, and then to share that in a public space, which could see collaborate and share. In fact, there's a whole plug in mechanism with case studies for blackboard and for muddle. And for other online virtual learning networks where students can collaborate and go down through a reading list of content where they're asked to annotate and share information about this pieces of content. I'm thinking about doing that with my. Next semester of students but it might just be easier to have them read recommended documents that I share inside of Microsoft teams as well as inside one drive system or asked to respond to different prompts. And then to through their response, I get a collaborative input to the thing they looked at. That have to the item that they're collaborating with. Hopefully by the time, my students get to the fourth year their education with me. They'll have a more sophisticated way using chrome extensions or annotations on the fly through a very smart web. Browser. At this moment in time I'm happy to say that what I'm doing is taking and leveraging paid content that I see through my news feeds or through ino reader, a feed reader I use. That I can see that stuff. Save those pieces of information that I went to rise, and then I can share what I want to annotate and what I want to mark up. I like the processes behind the scenes I like how I'm doing it with read wise. I like how it works with instant paper I like how the annotations work of hypotheses I like how the simplicity of kindle or the annotations with a standard book and a yellow highlighter work when extracted through office lens. All these things are possible and

"Press gained international following when press arrived in the area to cover a transatlantic flight because Limerick had been planned as a fueling stop for pilot JCP would as he made this journey but would had ditched his plate in the ocean off the Welsh coast. So the journalists that had assembled in Limerick, essentially had no story, so they turned instead to covering the strike, and it was something of a feel good story, this strike was non violent, and it had been carefully thought out. So it was pretty easy to write about it in a supportive, light, one journalist from the United States named Ruth Russell had been touring, Ireland and writing about its political situation when she arrived in Limerick in nineteen twenty she published a book about Ireland and she recounted meeting with the head of the strike committee. John Cronin to get his explanation of what strike was about per his talk with Russel Cronin, either felt that they were on. Track for a long-term governance, by the workers, or he was making, it sound that way for the international press. So here's a portion of Reuss Russell's account starting with a quote from Cronin. He says, quote, why did we form it? Why do we pick people's rule against military rule, of course as workers we are against all military. But our particular grievance against the British military is this when the town was unjustly proclaimed, the coordin- was drawn to leave out a factory part of town that lies beyond the bridges, we had to ask the soldiers for permits to earn our daily bread. You've seen how we have thrown the crank into production. But some activities are permitted to continue bakers are working under our orders. The kept press is killed, but we have substituted our own paper. He held up a small sheet, which said in large letters, the workers bulletin issued by the Limerick proletariate, quote. We have distributed food and slashed prices the farmer, send us their produce. The food committee has. Been able to cut down prices eggs, for instance are down from a dollar to sixty six cents a dozen and milk from fourteen to six cents a quart in a few days. We will engrave our own money beside there will be an influx of money from England about half the workers are affiliated to English unions and entitled to strike pay. We have, by the way, felt the sympathy of the union men in the army sent to Garda's a whole scotch regiment had to be sent home because it was leading workers go back and forth without passes. And we have told no one else, the national executive council of the Irish Labour party and Trade Union Congress will change its headquarters from Dublin to Limerick, then if military rule is an abrogated a general strike of the entire country will be called. Of course, the workers bulletin also wrote about the strike in a positive light and commented as issues like food depots and currency were worked out that the strike would quote show the world what Irish workers are capable of doing when left on their own. Sources, we should mention also that the Soviet is being called was not exactly tied to the Russian revolution though, that name was borrowed again, by the press from the events that had been playing out in Russia as RS rule was overthrown, the idea of a Soviet a council formed from workers was being applied to the Limerick strike, and its governance by the trade council. And as labor strikes, had also been a significant part of the Russian revolution. The name really stuck after journalists used it. Thomas Johnson, who was the leader of Ireland's Labour party rolled into town, hoping to represent the trade organizations and negotiate a solution. And he had to get a permit from the military authorities to pass through the barricade to do so, in the local trade council told him they wanted a national strike for workers rights Johnson explained that to formerly mount such a strike a national convention would have to be held to decide in. Well, there was support in other municipalities that support was not universal though, most unions. Agreed that the situation. In Limerick was untenable and unfair to Labour's, and that they had every reason to strike and even you know, every valid reason to call for national effort. There was also some very real concern that the strike was harming the laborers and barely even inconvenience the British military that had put the barricade in place. Additionally. There was a real concern that a national strike would lead to violence to make things even trickier Hsien Feng didn't offer support for the strike and for the Soviet the labor party was acting on its own, and that wasn't something they were interested in up to that point, the leaders of the labor party and trade unions. We're working to develop relationships with the leadership of champagne and they were hoping for the party's support in the strike, but she didn't Fain wanted to lead campaigns in for labor to mobilize to support them. They were much less enthusiastic at the thought of workers actually having control. And since there was also a lot of overlap of the nationalist volunteers, which, as I said what he eventually all? Into the Irish Republican Army and labor rights advocates at the time. There was also some murkiness about motivations and leadership related to the strike. The history of Xin Feng and the IRA has its paramilitary arm is long and complicated and controversial with internal disagreements in splits. It's like once you start looking at it. If you diagram it out, I mean, it becomes a tree pretty quickly because different factions will separate off because of disagreements, and then within that faction they will separate into two or more branches and it continues like that. But at the time of the Limerick Soviet the volunteers Xinfei were closely aligned. And as a reminder, Bobby burn, whose death had been the catalyst for this whole event had been a member of shin Fain and a member of the Limerick trades, and labor council in it had been a group of volunteers. You'll often see it said as an IRA mission that planned his escape from the hospital. The strike committee is self sought to distance their efforts from shin Fain and use the workers bulletin to do so. On Monday, April twenty first, the bulletin ran a blurb. That said, quote, the English press is doing its level best to dub the strike shin Fain, one in hopes that the English working class will be fooled. This strike is a worker strike, and it's no more shin Fain than any other strike against tyranny and inhuman, oppression and Tommy, the British soldier is not our real enemy. And we wish him to understand. He is merely a tool of his imperialistic capitalistic government in the midst of discussions with the national executive of the Irish labor. Party Trade Union Congress in entirely new idea was floated, as an alternative to pursuing a national strike, the labor party really, really did not want. And it was really just increasingly apparent that they were not gonna let that happen in this plan was to completely evacuate. The city of Limerick, the idea was that in leaving the city and empty show. It would make a strong statement visually, and it would also send a message that the people of Limerick would rather leave their homes than live under British Marshall. Law. And though this was a bold idea. It was also fairly nutty. It did not fly for number of reasons including the immense, logistical load of finding places to relocate an entire cities population even temporarily. Meanwhile, British trade unions, were working actively against the strike. Some of these unions managed workers in Ireland and were able to exert their influence to urge anyone in their unions to forgo participation, there was support for limericks labor strike throughout Ireland and many people donated money to the cause. But there was just no way for these funds to reach the striking workers. Additionally, it was fairly apparent that even though the strike committee was doing pretty well, in running things that the situation could not last forever. Limerick. Just didn't have the infrastructure to continue to operate independently for very long. Independently behind barricades. It was just not gonna work with no national strike forthcoming and resources being stretched pretty thin a meeting took place with multiple local leaders, as well as the strike committee in attendance were Stephen O'Mara, who was limericks mayor Dennis Jalan Catholic Bishop of Limerick and general Griffin commanding officer of the Limerick garrison. And after these negotiations and agreement was reached that if the strike committee, called an end to the strike, and then if there was no trouble in the days that followed the often see it listed as a week the barricades and the checkpoint setup would also end. So on April twenty four hours the strike ended and a week later Limerick residents needed no permits to move in and out of their city, while the strike ended without a loss of life, and the workers and strike committee, could consider it a win. There are also plenty of people who see it as a loss, and the last hundred years, there's been a great deal of theorizing about what might have been. If the committee had. Continued to develop a worker led government instead of compromising with the British authorities on may twenty ninth of two thousand nine the Robert Byrne memorial park was opened in two thousand fifteen a documentary about the Limerick Soviet was made. And just a couple of months ago as I referenced at the top of this episode the city of Limerick, marked the one hundred year anniversary of the strike with a huge series of events titled Limerick, Soviet one hundred festival of art and activism. Do you have listener mail to take us out? I do just by magical. Coincidence is also about Ireland. It is from our listener Laurie, who sent us a lovely care package, because she has also been traveling. She said, greeting stretchy and Holly. I've been meaning to write you for over a year now. But life seemed to get in the way too often. I know that feeling she says, I have been listener for many years, and finally have a connection to a podcast to write you I visited Ireland in March twenty eighteen with my best friend of thirty years to celebrate turning forty that year. Imagine my delight when you're classic episode before I left was on the Easter rising in Dublin, while visiting Dublin, I was able to visit many of the sites associated with the war for Irish independence. Saint Stephen's green, the general post office and killing him jail while at the little museum of Dublin. They have a copy of the nine hundred sixteen proclamation for independence, up on the wall, and I picked up a postcard copy of it for you. And then she talks about the history of Dublin that they learned about while they were here, and she sent us some great stuff some, which talks about was Vikings being in Dublin. Before most of the history, we have talked about related to Irish history as she said, there's a postcard with this fabulous. Proclamation on it as well as a beautiful postcard a couple of other beautiful postcards. She sent. So it was super duper fun to get this. It was actually sitting on my desk when I got back from Ireland and it felt like magically Ireland had arranged it up. But that was not the case. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Laurie for all of these delightful.

"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm Holly fry. And I'm Tracy view Wilson. So I just got back from Ireland. It looks like you've had a great time. I did I feel like a very spoiled person for having gotten to go on that trip. And we went all over the place while we were there. But we ended up through just kind of similar logistics, spending a really lovely afternoon in Limerick while we are waiting on some friends to meet up with us to, to move on to our next destination. And while we were at a pub there, we met this really lovely couple who were kind enough to chat with us for a bit enduring our conversation, our new friend Maria mentioned a historical event that took place in Limerick. That was utterly fascinating to me. She started out by mentioning that in the nineteen teens, the city had very briefly printed its own currency. And of course, I was immediately intrigued, and she kind of gave me a quick rundown of it, but of course, like in a pub conversation of fifteen minutes where there's much laughing and talking about other things you don't get all of the stuff, so. I ended up looking into it, and it unveiled itself to be a pretty fascinating moment. It was probably also on her mind because they just did like one hundred years thing in April like a festival around it, we'll talk about that at the end, and it is, it's really fascinating. I feel like it's one of those things that people in Limerick all knew about. But I had not heard of it me. So seems like a good thing to kind of maybe share with the world outside of Ireland because it's a really fascinating piece of Irish history. And so this episode isn't thanks to Maria by any chance. She's listening. Thank you for both the lovely conversation and agreed idea. Am also I just want to thank all of Ireland for being incredibly friendly and welcoming. I had nothing but great interactions and experiences with literally every single person we met, so it was really quite delightful. So we're talking today about this event, which was called the Limerick Soviet and it has a number of moving parts in some overlap, in terms of different movements that get a little tangled up in it that even to this day, get debated over over how much one or the other was an inflow. Since but in April two thousand sixteen and in March twenty eighteen as a Saturday classic. We had an episode on the Easter rising of nineteen sixteen and that episode will give you a little bit of additional context for the events that we're going to talk about today because it was a lot of the things that were happening leading up to what happened here. It's not a necessary. Listen before this one, but it just offers a little snapshot of what was playing out in Ireland, politically, right before the Limerick Soviet happened. So check it out. If you wanna get a little more of an in-depth approach to this one to talk about the events that led to the Limerick Soviet. It'll help to I talk about Robert Byrne who went by Bobby Byrne was born on November twenty eighth. Eighteen eighty nine in Dublin his father died when he was still a boy, and his mother moved herself and her son to Limerick and that was where she was originally from Bobby joined the civil service in nineteen. Oh, seven at the age of eighteen to work in the Limerick general post office. And after working at the Kinsale county. Cork post office as a sorter, and then in Bandon, also county cork, he returned to the GPO in Limerick imac Tober of nineteen eleven when he was posted in Limerick. He started working as a telegraph operator, and it was in that position that he started sharing information. He gathered on the job with intelligence officers of the Irish volunteers. That was the precursor to the Irish Republican Army you wanted Ireland to be free of British rule, the volunteers formed, as a paramilitary group that was intended to destabilize the power of the British government in Ireland. Obviously, that is super quick version. Yeah. And if you are ever looking at documents that outline kind of what this happened. Sometimes it's real fluid, when they start calling the, the volunteers, Irish Republican Army, even though they hadn't actually formed in that under that name yet. So if you're looking in those don't quite match up. That's what's going on there. But over the next several years, Bobby became more, and more. Involved with the Irish volunteer movement so much so that the Royal Irish Constabulary you'll often see that abbreviate. It is our, I see became interested in his activities in nineteen seventeen. He was placed on a list of post office employees that the police believed were disloyal to the United Kingdom of Great Britain, and Ireland burn was kept under surveillance by the authorities and in the fall of nineteen eighteen post office management met with him to discuss a number of allegations of seditious activities that were on record in the years since nineteen sixteen he denied all these charges but was fired from his position. Yeah, they suddenly unfurled a list of things, and they were not things he did at the post office in his job. They were things that he had been spied on and recorded as doing in his his normal life. And in addition to his association with the Republican militia burn was also a very active member of the trades council. He was a trade unionist, and he was vocal in Ireland's labor. For movement. His work organizing, his fellow post office workers in a union was undoubtedly also a factor in his dismissal on January thirteenth. Nineteen nineteen burn was at home in his mother's house when the home was raided by the RIC police searched the premises they found a firearm, and amunition and Bobby was arrested. He made no answer to these charges because he thought the authorities involved were part of an occupation of Ireland and that he wouldn't be given a fair judgment. Bobby Byrne was kept in custody without sentencing. And while in prison, he campaigned to be given political prisoner status on February fourth after several weeks in custody. Burn was finally, sentenced to twelve months, hard labour burn letter rebellion in the prison. The day after his sentence was handed down he and fifteen other prisoners, all of whom they believed that they should be held as political prisoners rather than his criminal convicts barricaded, their cells, and they smashed the furniture within and they sang Republican songs. Loudly enough to draw crown in the street outside. It took several hours for the police to settle things down. And as a result of the protests. The men involved were punished with strict measures, they were shackled to their beds. Some had their boots taken away and visitors were no longer allowed to bring them food, or clothing. Some are put in solitary confinement, and they went on a hunger strike in protest as news of what was going on in the prison circulated, it catalyzed a number of discussions among limericks leaders, the city council met and discussed the treatment of the prisoners. The incarcerated men had told visitors that they had no issue with the mayor or the prison guards, but that they wanted to be categorized as political prisoners, and that fact, plus pamphlets that were circulating about the men's poor treatment, including being forced fed gained support for them. There was also a meeting of the Irish post office clerks association to discuss secret reporting on staff burn hand as you recall, been fired based in. Early on acusations that he had denied with no formal process for him to defend himself. And a resolution was written up and sent to Lloyd George UK's prime minister at the time as well as leaders of the postal service calling for Bobby burned to be reinstated in his position. They also called for an end to this idea of secret, reporting burn eventually became so ill that he was moved to the Limerick union workhouse hospital and kept under armed guard. This move was performed under the criminal administration act of nineteen fourteen meaning that though he was no longer in a prison facility. He was still in legal custody. The hospital didn't want to take him though. They were concerned that if he died in their facility, they would be held responsible instead of the police, ultimately, they had no legal power to prevent this move. As the hospital administration was fretting over having burned in their care plans were being made to break him out at a club on Gerald Griffin street. Pedder done. Commandant. Of the IRA's Limerick, battalion brought together battalion officers from the organization to put together a rescue for burn, and that was scheduled for April sixth, the guards stationed at the hospital would be tied up. They would grab Bobby Byrne, and then they would take him to a safe house. No battalion officers were to participate in this mission starting at about two PM on April sixth. The volunteers led by Michael stack started arriving at the hospital in small groups, they pretended that they were visiting various patients several dozen assembled and some were out on the hospital grounds and others on the ward where burns being held a funeral carriage was waiting for burn his liberators at the hospitals.

But I think that's a soak in the energy out of them. I think it's going to be a really close game. We haven't seen Limerick and the thing with limited that note in the championship that cruise through the league, the champions doing very well in all Patong county now to keep them by grounders. Keep them kinda humble. Keep keeping hungry hunger. Seeps into the winning team. No matter what it is walking around town. Everyone's patting you on the back. You're this, you're brilliant.

Devoid to camp is the pace are very grounded Bush, it don't see into you mentally, at some stage, corker win are sorry, not a win, but obviously a game underneath their beds that can be a huge thing also going into a first first round Limerick. Maybe it'd be cool. But on the on the backside of that conference will be down so much because it's a home game, and the lost pretty poorly Tipperary. So it'd be really on the pressure to get. So I think let's be really close game. I think it would be a high scoring game. And. You know, as I said they last year, all these draws mine is a draw one point. Yeah. Eight to one can see where you're coming from there. Probably is a big price, given given the the two teams and hotels, the match to in last year's island semifinal. And have we just fallen into the trap door, thinking Limerick are actually better than they than they actually are? Because I remember just say Tipperary a couple of years ago when they won the Laird and the look so good in the league and you just wonder if Limerick like last year is being gone, and everybody seems to take out, it's, it's, it's a formality that mimic reseller semi fine. Let's from allergy almost get notarial volume. Like where did you did they not just hit for with the right time last year, and are we giving them too much credit for last year's allowance success? Oh, well, they want to learn them, fair and square last year. And I think to the best team, but like I don't think I don't even though chose the wounded were looking enough probably to India land semi final. And there's only I know the whereby fired a better team but it was only appointed against the goal to play terribly in the alarm findings.

Kark Clare Galway tape Kilkenny, even I don't there's, there's no, we we saw league. But like I really don't think the league in Hearn really. Donate think you can take punch out of it.

Do have definitely do have is to have a stronger panel and anyone else was which is like they're always going to be if they're around level would about twenty minutes to go.

And the Chinese know that the Chinese have seen Trump changes mind many times.

Why Are Some Words Funny?
"In the nineteen seventy-five movie, the sunshine boys, an aging vaudeville, comedian explains a classic truism of comedy to his nephew the case. Sound is always funny. The comedian played by Walter Matthau said fifty seven years in this business. You learn a few things, you know, what words are funny. And which words are not funny. Alka seltzer is funny. You say alka seltzer. You get a laugh, Casey Stengel. That's a funny name. Robert Taylor is not funny. Cupcake is funny tomato is not funny. Cleveland is funny. Maryland is not funny. Then there's chicken chicken is funny. Pickle is funny. And it's true. If you need a place name for a punchline, you're guaranteed to kill with Kalamazoo, connected key or Rancho Cucamonga, but why psychology professor Chris Westbury at the university of Berta has a fascinating theory. And it's based on perhaps the two unfunny est words in the English language statistical, probability Westbury. Published a paper in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal of experimental psychology with a first rate title, Wrigley, squeaky, Lennox and boobs. What makes some words funny in his research? He started with the list of the five thousand English words rated funniest by real humans and constructed a working with medical model for predicting the laugh factor of nearly every word in the dictionary. When Westbury applied his model to a data set of forty five thousand five hundred and sixteen English words, it decided that these ten words were the funniest of all up Chuck bubbly Baath wriggly. Yes, giggle. Kuch Cafa puffball and gigli runners-up included squeaky flappy and bucco and the perennial favorites of every eight year old on the planet poop, puke and boobs on the other end of the spectrum the word found to be the absolute least funny was harassment. In his paper Westbury explains that philosophers have been trying to unravel the mystery of humor for millennia Plato and Aristotle we're big fans of humor seeing it mostly as a way of denigrating and feeling superior to others Casero introduced incongruity theory, a writing that the most common kind of joke is when we expect one thing and another is said in which case our own disappointed. Expectation makes us laugh while the incongruity theory of comedy makes perfect sense of even rainy tins. Find switcheroo tricks high. Larry's Westbury says that it's not a true scientific theory in the clearly not every incongruence event is as funny as another a random coughing fit in a crowded movie theater isn't nearly as comical as a random farting fit. I mean, just try to say random farting fit without smiling. So the goal of Westbury's modeling experiments was to go beyond philosophical theorising and come up with a truly quantifiable scale of funny to do it. Westbury analyst words. In two different ways by their meaning and by their form for the first analysis. The researchers looked at semantic predictors. That group words with similar meanings. Using a free tool developed by Google that identifies words that are commonly used for one another aka co occurrence Westbury mapped out the semantic relationships between two hundred and thirty four of the human picked funniest words from this correlation plot, the researchers identified six different clusters or categories of funny words, insult sex party animal bodily function and expletive. Now. This is where things get dangerously mathematical since many of the words on the human rated funny list fell into more than one category. Other researchers needed a more precise measurement of how a words being translated into comedy using the Google tool. They came up with lists of words most closely related to each of the six categories, then they came up with the average values for each of those word categories. Using something called linear regression analysis. Those average values for each category. You know, insult expedited cetera became known as category defining vectors. When looking specifically at meaning it turns out that the funniest words don't necessarily fall cleanly into the most categories, but are the words whose mathematical values are the closest on average to those six category defining vectors. Here's how Westbury summed it up in a press. Brief the average similarity of a words meaning to these six categories is itself, the best measure, we found of a words funniness, especially at the word also has strongly positive emotional connotations. But meaning is only one type of measurement Westbury and his team looked at the form of funny words, a things like word length or the individual sounds or phonemes that make up each word in the second analysis the data fit nicely with the incongruity theory of humor. It turns out that the fewer times a word or its phonemes appear in the language. The funnier we think they are that helps explain why there are so many K and use ounds in funny word lists. There's typically improbable where it's ending in L E. Like Waddell in wriggle or another source of funds suggesting as the study, put it repetition usually with diminutive aspect. So why are we laughing? Now, this is where things get really weird the human brain seems as running all of these complex mathematical models all the time without any of us knowing it as we watch TV and read and talk to people our brains are constantly parsing language for subtle semantic, cross-connections and statistical probabilities and the result, at least on this basic one word level is what we call humor Westbury said if asked which letter is more common p or be I think the average person would have no clue consciously, but unconsciously they are sensitive to that. And we know that because they're funding this judgments are reflecting. Exactly that kind of fine tuned calculation. In other words, said Westbury people are using emotions to do math. Westbury argues that all of this makes perfect sense. Abolution airily our brains had been hardwired over millions of years to identify anything that's out of the ordinary as a potential threat and human emotions, including humor likely developed as ways of responding to improbable events and environments Westbury summed it up people laugh based on how improbable the world is. Of course, it's a long conceptual leap from predicting the funniness level of individual words to modeling the comedic mechanics of knock knock joker salty Limerick. But whispers, work points the way, maybe someday we'll finally understand why that chicken crossed the road. One thing's clear, though, a frog wouldn't have been half as

I'm excited to hear, but here's the thing, Jeff us again, hey, I'm going to be back on the slice from this week. I've watched some stuff, but I don't wanna just come on the show and talk about stuff because that's spent the last few weeks delivering full in. Depth spoiler filled reviews about all this stuff. Right. Like, why would I? Why would I want to step on your toes and rain on your prayed, blah, blah, blah. You know, like I, I want to take it up a notch.

But Jeff learned a couple of things while writing limericks for for the the things I've watched. Okay. One of them is it's really hard to rake limericks. And the other thing is I am not good at writing. Good lyrics crushes me because I was about to pitch to you David a new policy where we have to write a Limerick every week. I think we should be the show that has. And I am. I'm so excited about this. This idea that I think we have recently been accepted into rotten tomatoes, and I think our run tomatoes submission should be Limerick. It would be really int- genius talk about that offline as they say in meetings at my office sometimes, let's okay. But I do like the idea that we do our reviews. And then at the end of our reviews, we have to then summarize them in Limerick that we have written. Yeah, I mean, that's terrible. Like limit you really need to like write them on an event. You can't just like you can't just no exit rise lyrics. No, no. I'm saying you talk about all the things you talk about and then you you end with is saying the Limerick that you have prepared in advance. Okay. Well, this idea, Dave, it's your idea. No, it's it's really nice if you're just you're with them. Tuna, inappropriate degree. But here I love your idea. So so these limits were bad. Like I really wanted them to be good. I really wanted you to to listen to the Limerick and be like, oh, that tickled me, that tickle me that Limerick just tickled me, right. I while not only did I learn a lot about a movie, but I'm also impressed by Dave's wit and verve and of the language. Yeah, my command of English, my mastery of the form and that none of that happened when I was reading these Limerick. So I'm not nonetheless. I don't want to just discard them, you know your waste, is it? Do you understand how I'm even more excited now? Yeah. No, I I understand that. So what am I? What am I give us a shot? I'll read the lyrics. Okay. Yeah. And maybe you can. By, I don't know by letter grade or some way of showing what you think of Limerick thumbs up down like letter grade, however, will approach here.
