Hahaha! Epic mini-show, guys! Laughed throughout the whole thing.

Scott was in amazing form with the rants as well. Sansabelt pants, ha! I had that same kind of thing happen to me when I was a kid (like around 7 or 8)... An aunt used a box from one of those balsa wood flyable model kits (that had like 4 or 5 different planes to assemble inside) for fucking sweaters!

It must have been a discarded box from my uncle or cousin, maybe a gift they had gotten earlier. I would have been a tad too young really for something like that, but I was sure game to try! But the thrill of seeing that box as I tore the wrapping paper off so quickly turned into massive disappointment and betrayal that I almost didn't want to continue opening gifts

I'm almost certain there's a Christmas morning picture in my parent's photo albums where you can clearly see the box after I unwrapped it and cast it aside. I'll look for it and post it if I can find it. I doubt it was deliberate, but needless to say, I never wanted to open her gifts again.

By the way, UK... I had a WTF moment when the Intellivisionaries theme suddenly played. I was sort of napping on the bed while listening, and given my relaxed state, I briefly thought my iPhone podcast app had f-ed up and somehow jumped out of your show and into mine.

Awesomeness. I love Scott's rants he should do a new podcast just called "Scott's rants". Then again there is always Alex Jones to listen to LOL

Ha!

He did once suggest doing a segment called "Scott rages about this poorly maintained piece of shit."

Me too, and I'd already heard it.

Ha! I bet.

I'd listen to either of those Scott segments / shows.

Also, I like the bit where you were "calling" the Sansabelt folks in the background to discuss alternate names for their product - and the fact that it largely went unnoticed by SoCal and Scott! Classic...

Yeah they were oblivious at the time. Funny.

It was great to hear So Cal's Christmas Rap again from the Boxing Day show.
I wonder if we could get our government to give us a similar holiday here. That would be awesome.
I laughed myself silly about the sansabelt pants.
Can you imagine at Christmas getting a box that you open only to reveal a smaller box that you
open only to reveal yet another smaller box and each box makes you think you are going to get something cool only to be let down and receive something like sansabelt pants.
