The wait is ogre. A full Shrek ranking is here, including extensive discussion of the franchise's lone spin-off and Broadway extension.
Resident Shrekspert Shut Up Tim Ahlin joins us to discuss his favorite topic, Green characters. Everyone stays in good spirits throughout. Timberlake and Monty Python get gleefully torn down.

The Hangover guys wrote some stuff for Martha Stewart and Kenny G cuz Tyson worked out so well, and then we deck the halls with boughs of....funny????
Daniel gives a history lesson about the birth of Jesus. Then, halfway through, he has a conniption fit about his mic (he tried to cut around this) so he's a bit ornery in the second half for no reason. Henry is a perfect delight, as always. And the current state of Chevy Chase saddens him greatly.
Lots of discussion of Chevy Chase's eyeballs. Some discussion of the 1998 Kids Choice Awards. Happy holiday(s)!
