Another work week behind me and Saturday was spent doing more spring cleaning. I did watch a good doc after The Falcon and the Winter Solider called CAN WE TAKE A JOKE?
In the age of social media, nearly every day brings a new eruption of outrage. While people have always found something to be offended by, their ability to organize a groundswell of opposition to – and public censure of – their offender has never been more powerful. Today we’re all one clumsy joke away from public ruin. Can We Take A Joke? offers a thought-provoking and wry exploration of outrage culture through the lens of stand-up comedy, with notables like Gilbert Gottfried, Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, and Adam Carolla detailing its stifling impact on comedy and the exchange of ideas. What will the future will be like if we can’t learn how to take a joke?
Got up early Sunday and got myself ready for an abbreviated podcast. Jason Elkins came by at 9AM and we took my laundry Uptown and when it was done had a great lunch at Lucy’s Uptown. I hadn’t been there since they opened in Feb 2020 and then COVID hit. The sandwiches are too die for Jason ordered:
SIGNATURE SPICY FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH $8.95
LUCY’S FAMOUS CRISPY FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH. SERVED WITH COLESLAW, PICKLES AND AMERICAN CHEESE. PROTIP: ADD LUCY’S SUPER HOT HOT SAUCE FOR HEAT LOVERS
I had the:
BUFFALO BLUE SPICY FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH $9.95
LUCY’S FAMOUS CRISPY SPICY FRIED CHICKEN TOSSED IN OUR HOUSE BUFFALO SAUCE WITH LETTUCE, TOMATO AND BLUE CHEESE ON BRIOCHE.
We also had fries and FRIED DILL PICKLE SPEARS FRIED TO A GOLDEN CRISP. SERVED WITH LUCY’S SECRET SAUCE. Jason ordered a boozy milkshake with Fireball in it. My next trip I’ll try the vanilla milkshake w/ Jamo and Rumchata in it.
We did an abbreviated State of the Podcast show in order to update everyone on what’s going on and what’s about to take place as far as this show being more regular and consistent. In 45 min we summed up the past year and the process of how where and why. Also a new song from LOCKJAW and KISS trivia.
