The Rundown

  • Follow Michael on Twitter and check out his website!
  • Here’s Matt’s favorite page from the short-lived Cracked Magazine relaunch: Michael’s Spy-Scope ad parody.
  • The Internet Archive has a ton of old radio shows to listen to. And Michael’s right. They’re hilarious.
  • If you didn’t see the Snake ‘n’ Bacon pilot on Adult Swim a few years ago, it’s on YouTube!
  • Take a look at the Wikipedia articles for Archie’s various superhero characters from the ’60s. They’re nuts.
  • Chris took Friday off, so Laura Hudson did an Ask Laura column. She got a lot of Batman questions.
  • Matt Digges’ Amalgam Reborn Tumblr is pretty amazing.
  • Chris’ checks and recs: Birthday!, King of the Hill on Netflix
  • Matt’s checks and recs: Sweet tea, Fallout: New Vegas’ “Old World Blues” DLC

  1. First comment! Try Arizona sweet tea it’s ok or monster makes a energy tea if you don’t mind crack in your tea

  2. Tradewinds Sweet Tea is okay. You can usually find it at Wal-Mart or most grocery stores. Sweet Leaf is also decent.

  3. Arizona Sweet Tea is good, and Arizona diet green tea is the best damn tea I have ever had, but you may want it sweeter than that one allows.

  4. To Matt, the sweet tea I like the most is Gold Peak tea. I’m not sure how sweet you like your tea. It’s good and fair priced.

  5. From my relatively small experience with the South, I love sweet tea! The closest I’ve been able to find up North-parts is McDonald’s, actually. Yes, probably not actually anything close, but it’s the best I’ve found so far.

  6. Happy belated birthday, Chris.

    Hopefully someone at your local bar purchased you a celebratory Comics Alliance Presents War Rocket Ajax to drink.
