What kind of quirky quaint quizzical quandaries do we have in store for you this week? Colin just got back for Sweden and we finally get to tell our Scandinavian and Nordic countries apart, and of course, return of torture candy. Chris masterfully hid birds in his word game quiz, and how many gallons are in a peck? How many hot dogs are in the new Pizza Hut hot dog pizza crust? These important life questions are answered in Dana's HOW MANY challenge that will stump most. Rich Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner, or sliced bread...which came first? We're back with another eye-opening round of BRAD PITT? OR LASERS? filled with even more random pairings. 

ALSO: Monsters, death ray, listener puzzle answer

ALSO ALSO: There's a hidden bird in this episode description :)

Hey guys!

Thanks for the new episode! I enjoyed learning that Hugh is older than sliced bread - a piece of knowledge that will definitely come in handy! ;-)

A small ummm, actually. Czechoslovakia was not a republic of the USSR, but an independent country in the Eastern Bloc aligned with the Soviet Union. That makes a big difference in how countries were governed, with countries such as Czechoslovakia and Poland, for example, on the side of the "USSR-alleged independent countries" having their independent status of countries and own government, and countries such Latvia and Estonia on the side of the republics, being a part of the USSR.

An Um actually, during the discussion about how many people wee on the moon during the fist moon landing. One of the guys said the third guy never left the lander. There were only two people in the lander. Michael Collins stayed on lunar orbit in the Command module.

Could you include the pictures of the Danish candy you've bought?
Can't figure out which ones they are.
