Not as risqué as it sounds … or is it? On this week’s show, Teri and Kira talk about Jerry Brown calling California’s taxpayers “freeloaders,” Joss Whedon’s truly horrible Mother’s Day message, and why the left loves to dance on the graves of dead conservatives. Also, a new poll – and everyone knows polling is never wrong – shows Americans prefer Five Guys over In-N-Out.

    Kira, I know this may be aposticy(sic), In and Out is a good burger, but if I have to wait for one to be cooked from scratch, I prefer Fudrukers.

    I’ve never had In-N-Out. (Aren’t they mostly west coast?) But I do enjoy Five Guys.

    Five Guys is good…but the In-n-Out Double-Double with onions is ambrosia. ‘Nuff said.

    Of course, I’m partial to Surfside Bar & Grill in Meredith, NH. They have the best burgers anywhere.

    I haven’t tried In-N-Out, but Aiken (SC) does have a Five Guys. Their burgers are awesome, and so are the fries.

    As for polls, well to paraphrase Trump, “Polls are for losers!” These days, I don’t believe one single thing about any poll on any topic, even if it backs up my position on an issue. I’ve said this before in many posts, but people need to read the book How to Lie With Statistics. It was written in the fifties by Darryl Huff. Even though the numbers he uses in the book for his examples are dated, the information presented and the qualifiers provided are sound and give one a great respect for how data can be manipulated to provide the result desired.

    And no, I have not listened to the podcast yet. I’m on the road, and doing most of the driving. However, ignorance has never prevented me from having a comment on any subject.

    Dammit, I’m starting to sound like a liberal . . .

    My son lives in Arlington Texas and when I go to visit, we always go to Chop House Burgers. It was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and it is the best hamburger I’ve had, other than my own when I feel like really grilling. Part of the beef they use for the burger is brisket!

    I have had both 5 Guys and In-or-Out many times. The problem with deciding between the two is I have never had a bad meal at either one, ever. I always walk out with a smile on my face at both places. But I like cheese on my burgers, and 5 Guys has better cheese, so 5 Guys is my final decision.

    Are you one of those freeloaders I’ve been hearing about?

    Yeah, most Americans don’t have an In-N-Out nearby, which I’m sure skewed the results. But Five Guys is very good, but a tad expensive.

    Truth in Advertising here…I’m an expat from California, currently exiled in Seattle, (albeit with a Five Guys franchise nearby.) Since the California I grew-up is committing slow suicide, my preference for In-n-Out may be nothing more than pure nostalgia.

    Even so, the Double-Double is still the best…

    If California ever builds a bullet train there I’ll be sure to check it out.

    The poll would only be accurate (or at least close) if they polled millions of people who have eaten at both. Even then, it’s not a really fair comparison because the burgers are made differently, with Five Guys putting a lot more on theirs, including mushrooms, something most people don’t expect to be on a burger. The appeal of In ‘n’ Out (aside from the food) is its simplicity and its 1950s fast food experience.

    Is Kira an Adam Carolla fan? That’s where I heard about Tony Villar. I don’t know if others refer to the former mayor that way.
