After Marc tries to clarify something he said on last week’s show, the brothers debate the question- “how much money do you have to have to be rich?” They also talk about last week’s bonding experience at a Steve Miller Band concert, Andrew’s inability to properly clean his feet and comedian/writer Jim Meyer sits in for a conversation about his writing career, standup comedy in Baltimore, the Fox News interview with religious scholar Reza Aslan, Gilligan’s Island, Andrew’s driving skills, Marc’s arrogance and helps contestant Dawn LeMay play “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia.” Plus more of the “Who the Fighting Ungers Most Want to Punch in the Face” Tournament with eight matchups including Robert Pattinson vs. Joaquin Phoenix and “all life coaches” vs. Guy Fieri.
It takes the Fighting Ungers and producer Chris Lycholat all of three seconds to voice their disgust over the Prince William/Kate royal baby hoopla as both brothers offer their thoughts on how they hope the kid develops. Also, George Zimmerman rescues four people from an overturned SUV. Marc gets abused by Andrew while offering a life lesson to the listeners, the brothers talk scary movies and pick the winners of the next eight match ups in the “Who The Fighting Ungers Want to Punch In the Face The Most” Tournament including a tight bout between Miley Cyrus and Roger Federer/Rafael Nadal. Plus “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia” with contestant Jay Parrish and the brothers discuss whether or not the Rolling Stone magazine cover photo of the Boston Marathon bomber was too sexy. Lots of yelling at each other too.
The brothers spend most of the episode arguing the issue of racism in America as it applies to George Zimmerman and the Trayvon Martin killing. There’s also a brief riff on Andrew’s chess skills, the latest on Edward Snowden and the brothers, along with Chris the producer, introduce the much anticipated “Who The Fighting Ungers Want to Punch in the Face the Most” Tournament with the first 8 matchups. Also actor/comedian/writer Ted Lyde calls in to weigh in on the George Zimmerman verdict, loyal listener Cindy Newton plays “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia” and Marc misuses the word sieve.
