Episode LVI - Uncivil Peace

Everyone else is doing it, so now we are, too. It's the Comic Book Haters' special "Civil War" podcast. Marvel comics has rocked the very foundation of life as we know it with an exceptionally lame mini-series (or, rather, 'event'). Join DJ Sloofus and Schooly G in their erudite and susquepedalian discussion of the summer's shittiest crossover. As an added bonus, Schooly G actually read the comic. Click right here to listen in to it.

It's hilarious to listen to Schooly gripe about how no one should be allowed to change Spider-Man like any other fanboy. Schooly continues to go further and further down the slippery nerd slope. A year from now he'll have a fucking pull list.

The idea of calling the funnybook shops is really funny, but I think you should prepare better bits. Something that won't make the clerk give up on you right away. Have them try to justify a Warren 'shitbag' Ellis title to you, something like that. The UmbrellaMan one was better, even though he chickened out a little halfway through. Still, it is a good bit that I think you guys could get to work if you make a few more choices before you call.

You're both right. Schooly is definitely on the road to hardcore nerdhood. Those phone calls had about zero preparation, other than a few pints of 'liquid inspiration.' We're planning some out now, so they should get better with time. Or far, far worse.

The first one would have been much better if...

When the clerk said that some girls like Manga, he should have asked what that is. When she said Japanese comics he should have said that his daughter said she liked Japanese comics but she called them "hen-something".

Also: You've made another classic image Umbrellaman. But that's what actual military camo looks like now. Except more of a sandy colour.

three things:

1) Come on- just because I think fucking with an iconic superhero is dumb is grounds for me being a fanboy? i think not. I still hate, and always will, comic books and the people who read them.

2) The shorts issue is a dead horse. for christ's sake, the shit i usually wear is no dumber. my current theory is that i just made umbrellaman a little hot- he's a pushover for a hairy dude in camo. sorry UM- i don't swing that way.

3)The prank calls were l-a-m-e. They tried to get me to do it and i deflected them by saying i couldn't think of anything. eventually i just had to tell them it was dumb. played. hackneyed. i laughed once or twice, but come on.

for those of you who thought we started out already over the shark, we have officially now cleared it.

please join us next week when we call Best Buy and ask if their refrigerators are running. yeay CBH!

1) Schooly likes comics. The proof being that when I busted him about his shorts he was mad that I was "off topic" ie. comics. I mean why waste so much time on a podcast about something you hate?

2) I like to piss Schooly off about dumb stuff like his shorts, which I did...mission accomplished. I really don't have a problem with his shorts, but let's face it, that got big laughs!

3) Schooly was laughing so hard at the prank calls when we were doing them, that he had to leave the funnybook dungeon for fear of pissing his techo camo shorts. In all fairness to Schooly, he stated he was laughing at us, not the content of the prank calls...I'm ok with that but he was out of control with laughter, so it was funny one way or another.


ps. Don't flatter yourself there Schooly G, you're not my type...but keep dreamin' fan boy!!!

An Open Letter to Umbrellaman:

Dear Umbrellaman,
You are gay.

Schooly's just mad because when I called him and asked if he got Prince Albert in the can, he replied "No, I just sucked him off."

Now that, my friends, is comedy.
