  2. This was a crazy *&%* podcast!

    After listening to the podcast I was thinking about the lustful pictures with booth babes issue (alot, and I mean alot).

    An even better event would have been take a lustful picture with Craig’s Mom at Comic Com competition. But I suppose that’s been done a million times already.

    There…in the spirit of this podcast I have no insightful commentary.
