Geek Cuisine is the good, the bad an the ugly. Since Andy isn’t oft with us when we have the “interesting” ones, so we force uncrystalized candied ginger upon him. When his stomach has settled, we get to the real Geek Cuisine. Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites Ice Cream Cone marshmallows. Christina laments how she used to roast them over the stove at her parents’ house and tells the tale of Peep Jousting. Brad and Andy put marshmallows in Fireball Whiskey to see what happens.

Glenn talks about his Captain America hoodie. He shows off his Rough Justice:The DC Comics Sketches of Alex Ross. Andy is all about escapism in any form and asks for feedback about tv, books, movies and games.
