Even though Jeff and Wilson are having an "off day," the show is still as ridiculous and irrelevant as always, replete with stories about stuffing monkeys up your shirt, dirty Nintendo Scrabble words, and the worst Top 10 gadgets list of all time. Oh, and be sure to listen until to the end to hear Wilson completely destroy the 4th wall.

Wilson and Jeff are in some kind of slump, so it's up to me (Yu) to cheer them up, and I think a combination of funny stories and a heartfelt air hug sesh gets the job done. We begin by shaming NBC for moving Leno to an Early Late show time slot, then proceed to rip apart Time Magazine's embarrassing list of top 10 gadgets of 2008, one of which is actually a 2009 release. Another is a tiny pocket projector from a company nobody's ever heard of. As usual, I bring a couple ridiculous stories about stupid human trickery, like this one about a woman smuggling a monkey onto an airplane and a controversial video game that apparently teaches kids a dirty word for a mother's milk machine--Ubisoft has some 'splaining to do!
