Episode 150: Annual Novelization Challenge - Elf Man!


It's that time of year! Welcome to the annual Book Was Better Novelization Challenge! The tables have turned when WE write the novelization instead of making fun of it! The hard-working Tim the Stats Man has gifted us a transcript of 2012's obscure movie Elf Man (starring Wee Man from Jackass!) and a team of us have banded together Exquisite Corpse style to adapt it into our very own, original festive novelization! Unlike our regular episodes this one is a full audio book (running a whopping 2 1/2 hours!) and featuring: Jessica, Lizzy Unpronounceable, Courtney Coulson, Suzanne, Jacinta, Paris and work from Hector Weenis, Kenney, and Zach! By far our biggest episode ever and what better way to celebrate our 150th!

Episode 149: The Santa Clause (with guest host Lia!)


Forget coal! This week naughty listeners get punished when we read the wafer-thin novelization of killing-Santa comedy The Santa Clause! Joining me in the sleigh is guest host Lia as we talk about deadbeat dads, the high Santa death rate, and try to figure out why anyone in their right mind would be interested in Tim Allen! This is the darkest Christmas story of them all!

Episode 148: The Grinch! (with guest host Lauren)


This week we continue our jaunt down Santa Claus Lane as we read the flimsy novelization of green-hairy-Carrey Christmas-stealing movie: The Grinch! How did the Grinch steal Christmas you ask? Helping me solve this incredibly anti-climactic puzzle is none other than festive expert (and actual American) guest host Lauren! Warm up your sugar plums! I'm reaching into your stockings!

Episode 147: Home Alone 2 (with guest host Xavier!)


This week begins the most wonderful time of the year when we celebrate the holidays by reading the novelization of adults-being-irresponsible/neglectful Christmas comedy: Home Alone 2! And joining me on this festive journey is none other than the long-absent and sorely missed Christmas helper Xavier! We'll find out how the same thing can happen to the same kid twice, plus answer other pressing questions like how do you play Ding Dang Dong? Listen and learn!
