  1. Excellent Classic episode, guys. It dawns on me that technically speaking, the pre-Drue episodes of Erk Pod would technically be the “classic” ones. But I wasn’t listening to Erk Pod back then, so (no offense, Erk!) those don’t count.

    It is true that here in the States all paper money is the same colo(u)r. And we do indeed have one-dollar bills. There are one-dollar coins around, but they’re somewhat uncommon and you can NOT use them in vending machines.

  2. Well, since you asked…

    As a former wage slave in retail hell, I hate, hate, hate! people who come into the store jabbering away on their mobile phones! Annoying as hell! People would come in and ask for something vague, and then would be too wrapped up in their conversation on their mobile phone to bother listening to me asking questions so I could help them. Then they would get angry with me, when I dared to interrupt their phone conversation, to give them the help that they came into the shop and specifically asked for. Annoying! I would have loved to ban all phones from the store, back when I was stuck working there.

    “Bunny Messages Of Doom!” lol!

    Great show, guys. :)
