    I love it when Gus is out and Burnie takes over the podcast, there's so much hotseating going on. It makes the podcast a lot more dynamic, I mean this podcast had like 10 different people on it.

    Re: PAX Prime - four days weekend is very common for larger conventions. It still seemed pretty busy Monday, same as last year. It was better for students because there wasn't school the next day (also I'm from Canada lmao)

    Also they doughnuts would expand when cooked lmao

    Wouldn't doughnuts expand as they are cook, so of course the doughnut holes won't fit back in :P. That being said I've also never seen donuts that look so much like an anus before...wtf dunkin doughnuts

    lol! Have they never made donuts before? They expand when you cook them. haha. Also they don't really have "corners" because you roll out the dough and cut a bunch of donuts, then roll the extra back up again and make more.

      I think most people have never made donuts before lol.

    Don't really care about the time because I just watch it while I work later in the week, but I like the change in people on the podcast.

    see the donuts and the holes probably expand in the cooking process so they wont fit anymore

      the problem is that she wasn't wearing anything, she only had enough time to pull her bra from the sewing machine and hold it in front of her.

    Haha, the donut holes expand when baked and fried, and the donut itself also expands, so of course it doesn't fit!

    Do I really have to be the one to burst the bubble?

    Come on guys. Enough with the Donut Hole Conspiracy. You guys are overlooking one VERY important aspect of it:

    Donuts expand when they're cooked. They puff out. Of course the donut hole isn't going to fit into the donut anymore -- they're both considerably bigger than before they were cooked.

    Semi spoiler because of the topic.


    Anyone ells think emediatly the tittle was referring to the RvB Donut and not the real donut?

    All those guests. RT really needs a show where they just open up the mics for 1 hour and anyone from the office can just show up, talk about whatever, then hand it off to someone else.

    The reason pants are called "pants" is because they used to be sold in halves,hence the plural and use of pair.

    So.. uh.. I guess I will be that guy (v-.-) <Self disappointment. Doughnuts are made with a machine that looks like a funnel with a stick like thing in the center; these doughnuts are not even dough but batter. They drop right into the fryer conveyor belt thing from this funnel machine..There is also the thicker dough made doughnuts the corners are the holes /o\ and yes frying expansion and what not.. Used to work in an amusement park and worked the battered doughnut machine so that how I know that exists. *The more you know rainbow*

    Love this episode and all the guests. I do think Gav and Burnie are right about the donut holes being a separate product from the donuts, but come on guys...donuts expand when you fry them. Yeasted donuts are obviously yeasted, and cake donuts have baking powder. That is why they are light and delicious and not dense and gross.

    Thank you guys for the meundies deal. I replaced all of them with meundies. They are so much better than my old ones. I was like Chris about having old christmas theme underwear. I found meundies are more comfortable than my old ones.

    I'd like to make note that cupping actually works. Before it became a fetish remedy for white people in the West, it was an actual home remedy used across the Middle East and East Asia. It works to relax muscles and relieve tension and pain. Don't knock it if you don't understand it.

    Loved all the people involved in this podcast. Did not like that it aired earlier than usual when it was live. I live in Australia, so the regular time this airs is just barely at a decent time for me to see it. Please don't make the earlier time a regular thing.

    Fun fact, there is such a thing as a donut cake made from the middles of the donuts! A baker stopped wasting the donut bits and he made a donut cake!
