In this episode we ask you to believe that we planned for a rant about war to come out around Armistice Day and that this episode isn’t just the random wafflings of a pair of Mark Corrigans that was going to happen anyway. Do it!

SPORTS! The Delhi Commonwealth Games is upon us and it’s covered in shit. How will our athletes fare in the scatological fallout as John Key dares them all to a game of ‘poo chicken’? In that vein we delve back into other shitty sporting events like the Montreal Olympics where New Zealand pissed off all of Africa, the 81 Tour that John Key doesn’t remember, and celebrate the legacy of Eddie the Eagle:
Bigger picture time, ladies and gentlemen. How significant is MP misuse of credit cards for a few hundred in cheeky expenses when you remember that the minister of finance gets tens of thousands of tax dollars to live in his own home? Or what expectations do you have for those at BP responsible for the gulf spill in the light of what justice has been handed down to those behind tens of thousand dead from a gas leak in India 26 years ago?
Ladies and gentlemen; here are the children who are running your nation. Speaking of running nations, in this episode we ask whatever happened to that Saddam chap the US used to have as a playmate a few years back, and at some point we manage to get onto Dan’s favourite subject: what’s wrong with all of you people.
And meanwhile, in Iraq:
In this episode North Korea gets its game-face on, the drinking age gets kicked around like the political football it is, and we generally lament the state of the world. Hooray!
In this episode, Dave gets visited by the police. Looks like some uppity superpower threw down some surveillance following a little anti-war protest action, and he’s now on a watch list.

We take a peek at this phenomenon via examples such as The Right Brothers, Wolverines, and some poor girl who will surely grow up to regret posting videos of herself singing over a Michael Jackson song about health care reform and Glen Beck.
We got wise to some of this stuff due to the awesome blog “Et tu, Mr Destructo?”
The first video we talk about is this, from Wolverines.
If that somehow wasn’t to your tastes, you might enjoy Satellite High’s dis-track in response to it (you will)
Also talked about is The Right Brothers’ “Bush Was Right”.
