That other list of absurd suggestions for a podcast title

Overtired and rushed, I sent Elton the following list of suggested titles for our new podcast this evening.

I’m embarrassed to say this is not a joke – it is cut and pasted directly from the email.  (I did say it was rushed, right?)

The CopperMcManus Report.

That Other Fourth Person Podcast.

An Apotheosis of a Bombast.   (AAB or AAOB for short) – It’s the name a friend of mine and I gave to a Physics report in High School where instead of doing the actual report we basically just told the teacher hey, our grades are an 81 if you give us a 0 on this paper or an 88 if you give us 100 pts, so we’re going to screw the assignment and tell you all the stuff that went on in class that you didn’t know… we ended up with A’s for the class.)  An apotheosis is “a perfect example”  a bombast is “pretentious inflated speech or writing”.

Four eyes, four ears, no clue.

All Cheese

Descended from Kings

Sons of Royalty

Crooked Noses  (????  i have no idea where that came from)

Just Across the River

You Know You Think It Too

Broken Ice

Now That That’s Out of the Way….

I apologized throughout for the nonsensical nature of the email. But, that’s one of the good things about Elton – he’s amused by that kind of stupidity (where others might get annoyed).

So we’ll see what ends up getting used. Given that those were generally just a string of reactions to what I’d typed in the previous sentence in the email, I doubt it’ll be any of those, but you never know.

“You’ve been listening to the Crooked Noses Podcast… I’m Scott (and I’m Elton), thanks for listening. Good night.”
