Your Weekend Justice #125: James Spader, Acting Gristle

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that creates verbs where they are proper nouns just to see if anyone’s paying attention. Usually they are, but they couldn’t care less. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    • I would like to submit as a miniscule erratum that Widge identified the lowercase i as symbolic of an irrational number, when it is in fact an imaginary number, though not very imaginary.

    • GS: You are correct. I was being irrational about an imaginary thing.

      Which is…pretty much a description of my conduct in all 125 episodes thus far, if you think about…

    • Please god not about the comics discussion. I love you Leigh but I have to fast forward whenever you start talking about comics. Eastwick maybe… :)

    • Um, Dan…I don’t usually talk about comics, other than to ask for recs for Kidlet or to ask how close the comic comes to a movie…

      Or have I been doing that and don’t remember? Because that’s just wrong!

      But I will talk about Eastwick. Maybe we can do a long episode review together, Dan? :D

    • You don’t usually but when you do you usually preface it with something along the lines of “I don’t know much about comics but…”

    • Dan, Leigh–I think you’re both missing the point.

      The point is…how can Leigh be discussing comics *when she’s not in this episode*?

      And Leigh: you weren’t. I was there. I know. So don’t even try to mess with my head, chica.

    • I know but she said she’s “taking notes” which I took to mean in her dramatic return she would address topics from episodes she had missed. Which by the way sounds awesome.
