Episode #36 – A Christmas Treat: Spirited Candy Canes, Intoxicating Eggnog & the Gullible Gingerbread Boy

Episode 26 Artwork_edited-2.jpg

Merry Christmas (or whatever secular alteration suits your preference) to all of our listeners of ASP Stuff Radio!  In this joyful episode of non-political stuff Alberotle, Steveocrates and Paulato talk about the “McRib Girl” and her desperate plea to bring back McDonald’s McRib in Santa Clarita, but more importantly they share their exhaustive investigative research on the origins of (and other fun facts on) candy canes, eggnog and gingerbread cookies.  Steveocrates even tells the sad tale of the fox and the gingerbread boy.  As a merry “X-mas” parting gift ASP play a cheerful game of Word Sneak, often played by Jimmy Fallon and his guests on The Tonight Show.  Enjoy! Here’s the list of assigned words to help you keep track of who’s winning in the game:

Alberotle’s words: respect, postulate, pizza, stocking, caroling; Steveocrates’ words: mistletoe, blob, eggnog latte, nincompoop, burping; Paulato’s words: snowflake, crockpot, earthquake, mythology, gift wrap
