Then we hit up the Answerly.com Twitter feed to address a couple of interesting questions we found posted there. The first question involves the cutting edge of drugs (disguised as bath products), and the second question involves the cutting edge of mind-readers (disguised as vending machines).
Next, we move on to the main topic of the podcast, where we examine a few famous figures to determine their degree of real-ness. This is the test-run of an ongoing AVSC segment that we’re (probably) calling “Reality Check, Please”, and it relates to Phil’s recent Real/Not Real poll. While future iterations of this segment will likely feature just one famous figure, in this episode we talk about three: She (of “that’s what she said” fame), Johnny Fuckerfaster and Rosie the Riveter (which includes some talk of Lewis Hine‘s “Powerhouse Mechanic” photo as well as Tex Avery’s Swing Shift Cinderella cartoon).
