Mr. Monday Calls In

We all know things get a little crazy at times, but what about when you break up with your girlfriend and she maliciously chews on your precious genitals? When that happens, it’s time for a PBS documentary. In this case, PBS stands for “please bite scrotum”. I’m not sure why anyone would want that, but sometimes nothing makes any sense. This may be one of those times.

Mr. Monday joins us by telephone for this episode, which just happens to be episode #12. That’s not to say it was the 12th episode we recorded. That would be way too logical for this production.

The Bacon Episode

This episode (#11) was recorded a while back. I’m not sure, but I think we decided to can it, because the news stories were out-of-date, but I revived it because it’s a pretty good episode. We discuss things like rescuing puppies that can’t swim, and the proliferation/liberalization of bacon. As everyone knows, anything with puppies in it has to be good, and putting bacon on top just makes it better! You can download and listen, or listen/like/subscribe on Youtube.


SPECIAL EDITION: Don’t debate da playa, debate da game!

Well, that was… something. The potentials for the 2016 Democratic Presidential nomination lined up last night like Ms. Hannigan’s orphans for a good ol’ fashioned whoopin’ delivered by Hannigan herself (Anderson Cooper) and the rest of the foster care bureaucracy, CNN. It’s certainly a hard-knock life for a Democrat these days. The Republicans have had two debates already, and Jim Webb didn’t get any time to speak at their debates either. Sanders hurls profanity, Chaffe has no clue what he votes on, O’Malley is too damn cheery for no good reason, and Hillary is as institutional and robotic as ever. Here’s our recap!

F**cked by the Babysitter

I’m pretty sure I have done more intros than just the Halloween episode, but Mr. Sound Guy says he does them all. Having not received a single comment at comments [at] lifeishardpodcast [dot] com, we speculate that maybe there’s a configuration problem, or the Russians have hacked our e-mail. Of course, we must discuss the 11.5 year old boy who got banged by his 20 year old babysitter, with the approval of his father, and the judge who presided over the case. As you might expect, all of the adult men thought the 11 year old was getting off (no pun intended) to a jolly good start and the child welfare people felt the babysitter got off too easily (45 seconds!). We discuss the details, and take a few minutes to discuss the recent shooting of an 8 year old girl by an 11 year old boy (warning: very disturbing story).

Of course you can download this episode and listen off-line or listen, like, and subscribe on youtube.


Internet Vengeance, Episode 8 3

We discuss the power of social media and how much I like Ana Kasparian from The Young Turks. The Couch Potato Outlaw suggests that I might need to drink a bear and that we haven’t gone to the moon. This is the first episode in which we use the Way Back Machine. If you play the drinking game on this one, you’d better take very small drinks.

F*cked by a Cheerleader

Your patience has paid off. The long awaited episode #6 of the Life is Hard Podcast has arrived! We argue about whether or not we should allow an army of cheerleaders to overrun a high school and bang the young boys with impunity. Well, that’s not exactly how the argument went, but you’ll have to listen to find out. We also discuss names that apparently mean “Warrior Princess”, and the pitfalls of debating someone on Twitter.

Disgusting Self Improvement

Yup, #5 is the self improvement episode. We’re still not sure how this happened. You could blame it on Mr. Monday, our guest, but we never blame our guests. Generally, we blame the sound engineer for everything that goes wrong.

the elixir that claims to cure everything

Episode #4 is here! We have our first guest, Mr. Monday. This is the elixir that claims to cure everything but actually gets you drunk. It’s irreverent and probably irrelevant, but that’s what’s fun about it. If you choose to drink to the word “Nazi”, you may not be standing by the time we finish, but it’s not what you may think.
