Tom / Molly: Do you get to have lunch?

by rollingp / November 22, 2005 5:35 PM PST

OK I admit I?m a worrier....its having kids that did it to me, getting out the house in the mornings, with lunch boxes, soccer kits, cell phone, laptop, keys, worrying that I?ve forgotten something, if my daughter got her lunch OK, ....ya da ya da ya da I worry.

My point ..... Tom / Molly / Veronica are you guys actually getting your lunch, I don?t hear much chomping of food or slurping of drinks during the podcasts, which I think is when you said you record them?

One more worry .... are the podcasts part of your day job, I mean is your boss going to give you guys a hefty bonus for doing it or is this just something that you guys do in your spare time (lunch hour).

They are actually hooked up to intravenous and kept in a closet (also known as a cubicle is some places). There, they are chained to their cubicles with an infinite amount of monkeys around them. If they don't produce more then the monkeys then they get the cattle prod to the butt.

What you don?t see behind Molly when she is recording her show is a producer holding a taser up against an Intern, and if she doesn?t get it all done in one take, the intern takes one to the head, lying in a puddle of his own drool.

Every morning the games keeper goes to each desk and tosses them a few bits and pieces to keep them functional.

OK, that ain?t true.. but sooooo cool! I also had to much coffee.

PS. I heard that the monkeys came up with a $ony DRM uninstaller that works.

I was eating Indian food during the Kevin Rose interview, because I didn't have to talk.

Usually right after the podcast we run out and grab something nearby.

As for the bonus my boss's name is Candy Meyers.
