No Rapture. Life goes on. Bob Woodward hires Geoff as his personal massage therapist! Are you TBM? Mitt Romney is. But ARE YOU?? Ladies, stop pining away after President Uchtdorf. You are coveting.

Episode #67 – Men for Pantyhose

The King James Version of the Bible turns 400! Pretty cool. We discuss some of the history of the KJV and celebrate through holy reverence. Peggy Fletcher Stack continues to amaze! She’s our new McKay. Geoff spends awhile lambasting a new article about the Crystal City ward, which is apparently a YSA ward (it’s not) and is also synonymous with a church building (it’s not). Romney. Huntsman. We don’t want to beat a dead horse, but perhaps they effectively come from different generations of Mormons, thus explaining their different ways of addressing their faith publicly. We love pantyhose, and things transpired in the past week that will deeply hurt our preference for those lovely nylon leg-shapers! Al mocks Geoff for not knowing about settlement history within the Church. Geoff cries and walks out of the show.
