The 404 284: Where Heavy & Flo thank Mr. Roboto for his pencil

Heavy & Flo return to the show. It's supposed to be a monthly thing, but our schedule is a little erratic. Just be thankful we're not pregnant. They're up to their usual high-jinks because Daddy Bakalar is out of town to keep us in check.

The Oscars were on last night, so Heavy & Flo think it's an appropriate time to make fun of Japanese men, who can barely speak English. OK, Mr. Yu and Mr. Tang seem to think that it's pretty damn funny, too, when he thanks his pencil. Flo recounts her story of discovering bacon in the women's restroom. Wilson asks Heavy to prove that she really can wear the BraDryer. Conan O'Brien leaves New York for L.A. Good luck with that one! And Justin tells us about his experience with ear douching.

Speaking of douches, Microsoft asks for money back from its laid-off employees. Good one there. $50 billion in the bank, and you think it's a good idea to ask money back?

And major props to SamJ for putting up 404Fans.com! It's a little basic right now, but he's got the Wiki back up in resurrected form and a forum, too! As always, e-mail us at the404 [at] cnet [dot] com. Or shoot us a call at 1-866-404-CNET (2638) to ask for Heavy or Flo's phone number. I think we can set something up given the right compensation. *wink* Follow us on Twitter, and tell all your friends. Just not the health insurance companies. Seriously guys, no more lame Twitter adds! Send us your suggestions for 404 mottos!
