The 404 161: Where we shock the monkey

On the show today: Justin calls in from bed, the Spanish Olympic basketball team is a bunch of racists, some chicks are using wide contact lenses to achieve "Anime eyes," fake porn inspectors, and putting Lojack in your PS3.

Sorry--today's post just won't be as long as Justin wants. It's just not gonna happen. We don't understand how he finds the time to do it anyway, so we're not gonna try and do it ourselves.

With Justin's trip to the "doctor," it leaves Wilson and I to fend for ourselves in the 404 podcast studio. I brought in a Yankee Candle Car Jar today for the studio to improve the overall air quality as some people have begun to comment on the room's overall cleanliness. It's honeydew-melon scented and now that it's combined with the 404 scent (not available in stores) I think I may have worsened the situation altogether. No matter. The show will go on.

So it turns out the Spanish Olympic basketball team is nothing but a bunch of d-bag racists. They ran an ad in a major Spanish newspaper displaying the entire team making "slanted-eye gestures" on their faces. The nerve! How do people like this exist in this day and age?

The Chinese Olympic Committee had some of their own bias when they decided to ban a girl who had crooked teeth from singing at the Olympics and replace her with a girl whose teeth were straight. Crooked-teeth-girl still sang, she just apparently needed a stunt-double to lip sync and be on camera.

Contact lenses that make your eyes look like those of an Anime character? Sign me up! I'll shove any unnatural device directly into my ocular cavity if it makes me look like a damn cartoon character! Seriously, these people need a violent reality check.

And lastly, the story of the stolen PS3 that called home. Finally, some revenge for a man who got his $600 Blu-ray player jacked. They should make the thief have to own an HD-DVD player for the rest of his stupid life.

Alright, it's back to work for me. I hope Justin approves of my take on his rant-format blog post. We'll see you guys tomorrow.
