Can GIFs kill you? Ron Babcock, Rucka, Mikey, Ozzy Gifts, Seizures, Cristiano Ronaldo, WSJ] Can you kill someone with a GIF? Comedian Ron Babcock (http://www.ronbabcock.com/) joins the debate this week, right on the heels of launching his #1 bestselling comedy album, "This Guy." Ron argues FOR weaponized GIFs, while Southern Lawyer Maddox makes an appearance. Plus we discuss the horrors of seizures and how a Disneyland trip of mine got cut short due to one. Here's Ron's new comedy album, and a certain Armenian satirist's arm made an appearance on the cover of this album. See if you can guess which one: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1213085673?ls=1&app=itunes Here's a great animated clip from the album: https://youtu.be/Naj05L1Mjp8 We also received an incredible care package from a long-time listener and fan of the show, Genevieve, all the way from Australia. She sent us a ton of awesome stuff from down under: https://madcastmedia.com/shows/bestdebate/44/e44_gift1.jpg https://madcastmedia.com/shows/bestdebate/44/e44_gift2.jpg And in case you couldn't read it in the image above, here's the first sentence I read from James Joyce's Ulysses when I flipped through the book. Looks like a good read honestly: https://madcastmedia.com/shows/bestdebate/44/e44_ulysses.jpg The big announcement is coming up, sign up for the book mailing list here: http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=book3 Bonus episode #2 is coming soon, and here's #1: https://madcastmedia.com/shows/maddoxvsuniverse/1/ We also discovered that our own Mikey Bolts is very photogenic. Check out this Renaissance-like photo of ya boy: https://madcastmedia.com/shows/bestdebate/44/e44_mikey.jpg We also introduced a new Rucka (https://www.youtube.com/user/itsRucka) drop, his famous "yeah!" I hear him saying this in my head randomly throughout the week. We also discussed our weekly ritual: Fried Chicken Tuesday. Are you part of the Fried Chicken Tuesday Crew (FCTC)? Get on it. Finally we round out the episode with a really shitty Cristiano Ronaldo bust, rivaling Lucille Ball's from last year. Here they are side-by-side: https://madcastmedia.com/shows/bestdebate/44/e44_bad_bust.jpg And here's my buddy Smearballs' (Nick DenBoer's) video rendering of the bust: https://youtu.be/aaXDVlmdoT8 The voicemail number is: 1-562-58-I-RULE (1-562-584-7853).
