This is the episode we recorded the day after the election-- we thought it would be good to capture some audio as close to the incident as possible-- and so be prepared: the gang isn't as chipper as usual. There is a good test buried amidst the shocked political ramblings, though, so dig in, enjoy the depression, and see if you can identify the key piece.
Despite her bronchial infection, Stacey fights presents a smart and topical quiz on political terms and issues . . . this one is short and sweet-- Terry's dream-- but, amidst the political jargon and the juvenile and canine intrusions, we still manage to cram in a few laughs . . . so give it a shot, keep score, and, if you're not careful, you just might learn something (even if you're a slacktivist . . . or a hacktivist or a cracktivist).
Though the gang is suffering from the post-election blues, Cunningham does her best to cheer us up with a brand new, totally mindless, completely entertaining TV Theme Song Quiz (which the ladies oddly refer to as a TV Theme Show quiz). So chill out, forget about the future, and see if you can identify the seven clips. We promise no one will grab your pussy.
If you're going to listen to one episode of The Test, this is the one. Not only does it contain (according to Dave) the most brilliant question ever written in the history of podcasting, a complete culmination of everything that the gang has learned during the entirety of the show, but there is also a pepper-related mystery (solved) and a cunning trap, which the ladies fall into (and refuse to be extricated). You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll shoot mucous from your nose, and you might even learn something (about pepper-related topics).
Stacey opens a crazy can of worms this week, and the gang goes on a journey through time, space, and permanent body art. Cunningham reveals where they've got Jesus, and technology provides a real-time crisis that leads to a dramatic ending.
This week, Cunningham presents a quiz on canines, Dave explains how to euthanize a groundhog, and Stacey sings the dogs. A weird, wonderful, occasionally informative episode with an ending that is not to be missed . . . if you're into talking animals.
Dave presents the ladies with a rather grim thought experiment (provided by Chuck Klosterman) and while they perform admirably, it might be all for nought. So take a shot and see how you score . . . or don't. It probably doesn't matter anyway.
Stacey brings the pain this week with her quiz on nicknames. Dave and Cunningham mainly flail-- especially on the actual names-- but they occasionally guess the common thread. Give it a shot . . . it won't be hard to outscore these two idiots . . . and remember: Method Man's real name is Clifford.
This week, Dave (with the help of God) quizzes the ladies on the Bible. Stacey virtue signals her way through the pearly gates, while Cunningham decides that Christ bores her. God shares why he was so angry in the Old Testament, and how he's getting over it. No one is plagued by locusts . . . yet.
