The Beautiful Event that was Lindsay and Marc’s wedding at the Hotel Syracuse, Happy Birthday America, Some of ya’ll need to go home, Coffee Snobbery, Anne sets other people (weaklings) crying, Things that are Great, Short Corn, Michael Loses ALL OF THE THINGS (UPDATE: Things have been found), and the Sliced Cheese Incident™. Plus: A HUGE LOSER goes to the beach, Schadenfreude Shout-Out™ and The Bird Report™.
A large gathering of well bred (and well fed) old-ish White people listen to a live radio broadcast, Nathaniel Hathorne (NO “W”), Garrison Keillor and American songs lead off this week’s show while the Big Crazy (Marcus Bachmann), station wagons and ice cream cones help to define what America really is in 2011. We spend time talking about how we got here discussing President Obama, Gertrude Stein, Woody Allen movies, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, baked beans and Hot Dog eating contests. Also Michael does not seem to know where chicken comes from. Plus: Meet Julien Havard.
Songs include: Stars and Stripes Forever and American Woman
