Hip Palsy

Episode 94 on Saturday, Jun 06, 2020

To start, David shows off how unfamiliar him is with history and figures of the same. It's really not good, but he made a Michael Jordan joke so Jim says that makes up for it.

In follow up we reveal that neither of us is a psychologist, and that we are in fact quite dumb. There is no doubt whatever about that. Dumb as door-nails. Mind! I don’t mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dumb about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a roofing nail as the dumbest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country’s done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that we are as dumb as door-nails. This must be distinctly understood, or you might actually believe the rest of the things we relate.

Anyway, for our main topic, we discuss something relevant again. Not for the sake of relevancy, a thing for which we almost never strive. But because the issue has been on our minds a lot lately (due to its virtual unavoidability and not any piety within us, sad to say) and we thought encouraging discussion of said issue would be of benefit. Anyway, the topic. The topic is privilege and compassion. After listening to this, we're expecting to be hung as piñatas at some poor candy-less conservatives birthday party.
