    Hey Scott – I was yelling at my computer that the punch line was “they look at each other, and say ‘government’s paying, right?’”. Ehhhh, maybe not that funny after all…

    I cannot get either audio link to work….. I hope you guys can release this podcast soon!

    Why is Jonah Goldberg threatening to murder Rob with a fork?!

    Quick…to the TARDIS! I must halt the path of that deadly utensil before the time space continuum is permanently damaged.

    Time to summon my faithful companions Bill, Ted, Rufus, and Doctor History!

    Woulda brought the house down, Erik.

    Or maybe Fluke says, “Sorry fella’s, Georgetown gave me only one condom.”

    I haven’t heard it yet, but here’s my stab -

    Fluke: I’ll buy the drinks if you two stump up the change for the machine in the men’s room.

    I started a complete-the-joke thread on the Member Feed if anyone’s interested.

    Boy, for a comedian, you’d think a guy would smile, huh?

    Am hoping that podcast gets released tonight… any chance?  Wouldn’t want everything you guys talked about to become irrelevant overnight!

  8. Nanda Panjandrum

    Highly diverting, gentlemen!

    Steyn comes thru with the punchline for the Fluke-Friedman-Brooks-in-a-bar joke. Was there ever a doubt? 

  10. Jolly Roger

    Excellent discussion! Forget sitcoms, these three guys should have a regular TV show. I’d pay per view. Time for you guys to be above the line talent.

  11. Cunctator

    Thanks Scott re joke thread. A comedian’s worst nightmare – being told to “be funny”. Jolly Roger, I still really like the GLoP combo, they are more comedically aligned. The brilliant Steyn is great of course but that trio isn’t quite as fluid IMHO

    Cannot find the link to allow me to hear the chat between Steyn, Goldbergt and Long; will it be posted later this week?

    That’s a couple o mugs that should be up at the post office!

    I missed all but the last terrible question last night… And C-SPAN somehow failed to include it in the highlights show. Podcast? Some other archive?
