Hey, guys, we're still hoping to get a Christmas episode done, but this past week hit a little snag. A good little snag. Jim's wife just gave birth to their second child, so needless to say, he's been a little busy this week. And this time she didn't go into labor while we were recording, so that's good. See our "Jerry Maguire" episode for when that happened.

And more good news: Keating is still childless.

Anyway, in the meantime, we decided to repost our "Home Alone 2" episode on our feed, so go enjoy (or re-enjoy) that one. Or hate it (or re-hate it)—whichever you choose.

ORIGINAL SHOW NOTES:

Merry Christmas, you nosy little perverts! 'Tis the season to steal your parents' credit card, check into the Plaza Hotel and befriend a spooky Central Park pigeon lady with a secret lair inside Carnegie Hall. That's right—it's time to dissect everyone's favorite childhood sequel, "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."

Macaulay Culkin reprises his role as Kevin McCallister, a sociopathic sadist who justifies his brutal torture of two hapless petty criminals under the guise of preventing a Christmas Eve burglary of a toy store that plans to donate its proceeds to a children's hospital. Somebody needs to teach this kid that vigilante justice is illegal and that insurance surely would have reimbursed the toy store owner for his loses.

Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are back as Harry and Marv, a duo of bumbling burglars who have escaped prison only to immediately run into the boy who put them there. In this film, they really take a licking, but they keep on sticking.

President Donald Trump also makes an appearance in the film as himself, a weird-coiffed, megalomaniacal douche-nozzle with small hands and an alleged micropenis.

Join us as we discuss our hatred of pigeons, the awfulness of the Talkboy, and the exact severity of Harry and Marv's injuries.
