Shenanigans Episode 80: But Is She Top Rack Safe?

May 17th, 2019

Well...we go way long this week at just under two hours. The first half hour is talking about Game of Thrones, upcoming Disney movies, and a royal conspiracy. The rest of the episode? Aside from paintball and that Vinnie doesn't like blue cheese, it's all Rich's fault. Seriously. He chose the articles this week. But it sure is funny.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie, Howie

May 10th, 2019

Craig jumps on his soapbox this week as he voices his support for the women's hockey players in North America. We learn this week where Jesus got his middle name, and Howie has a new claim to fame. Vinnie has an interesting story about a Power Rangers mask, and we have discovered a bunch of new toys inspired by the new Avengers movie. Always be careful of what you flush.

Shenanigans Episode 78: The Adventures of Mike Littoris, Garlic Farmer

May 3rd, 2019

It was Avengers weekend and Game of Thrones weekend. We talk about both without giving any spoilers. Apparently the Easter Bunny has some MMA training and potholes could save your life. Howie's cat ate his homework, while cows are lining up for their very own glamour shots. Invisible aliens are interbreeding with humans and you're putting what where?? Although we used to try to be, again, this episode is NSFW.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie, Howie

Shenanigans Episode 77: We’re Vajankle Deep In It

April 25th, 2019

We start off this week with a little history of the elusive fish, Canal Shopping Cart. We also taste test some Chenez's Popcorn from Lockport. A unicorn sheep was saved from death by beer and we found more bridal party demands, this time from an uninvited guest. Walden assures us that Clog Dancing is a mating ritual, and we find out exactly why you need to wear flowers in your hair when you visit San Francisco.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, and Miss Scarlet

Shenanigans Episode 76: If We’re Ranking on a Scale of 1

April 19th, 2019

We have a full house this week as Howie makes an appearance and we have a special guest for that coveted sixth spot. As we recorded on Monday, the news of the day was talked about -- the terrible fire at Notre Dame de Paris. Since it's Holy Week, we also had to mention the possibility of racist Easter Ducks. There were some martial art shenanigans at Walmart, complete with crazy dogs. Rogue Roombas remind us that the machines are coming. Or at least helping. And what is that thing they're selling at the local convenience store?

Shenanigans Episode 75: Darwin Loses This Round

April 12th, 2019

After playing an April Fool's prank and bailing on the show last week, Walden is back to make it a foursome. A pair of Southern gentlemen graciously tested their personally owned bullet proof vests to ensure other who had them that they are effective. We talk about video gaming when we were growing up after reading about a mom who hand feeds her son while he plays. Cheese is the new cocaine, and there's a new, special perfume for those awkwardly bad high school dates. 

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie

Shenanigans Episode 74: OMG! Chuck Norris Just Farted!

April 4th, 2019

And then we were three. With Howie and Walden bailing on us this week, it was the triumvirate of terror, Craig, Rich and Vinnie. We talked a lot about cars again and about our pets. We all have dogs. Apparently while all dogs go to heaven, they also all fart. We've learned some interesting things about hay fever cures, and new, friendlier laws in Utah. Meanwhile, there's the requisite nakedness in Florida, and a mac & cheese festival in Canada.

Shenanigans Episode 73: Tasting Roadkill in Pound Town

March 29th, 2019

This week in Shenanigans, we talk about the retirement of Gronk. We feel that now gives him more time to drop by for a show. There is also a lot of military talk, as Vinnie explains some aspects of life in our armed forces. A town in Texas wants to change its name from Dripping Springs to Pound Town. Of course we had to comment on that. And roadkill could be heading to your plates in many states this year. We also aggravate Vinnie with our awesome Southern Accents.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, and Vinnie

Shenanigans Episode 72: Young Danny Trejo and the MySpace Herpes

March 22nd, 2019

We're back at it this week with more NSFW antics. We had the best of intentions to be on our best behavior, but that didn't last through the intros. It looks like the Marines were trying to do their part to help with the USC scandal, and imaginary friends are causing problems all over the place. MySpace accidentally deleted everything and no one noticed. Meanwhile, we learn of the futility of arguing with a 7-year-old.

Shenanigans Episode 71: Beware the Ides of March & Other Fine Print

March 15th, 2019

If there ever was a Shenanigans episode that was NSFW, this is the one. It's all because of some bourbon, and it just goes downhill from there. This week, we talk about angry hipsters, anti-vaccers, and reading the fine print. It's been decided that the Martians will be paying for a new "space wall" to help block some of the sun and we debate what the best DC-Marvel crossover movie could be.

Cast: Craig, Howie, Walden, Rich, Vinnie
