The wildly successful Murders & Acquisitions Kickstarter is now OVER. What do you mean you're just hearing about it now?!? Well, you get to pay more for a book. Go buy two and make Craig rich so we can get some better equipment in the studio. And thanks again :)

Can't tell if he's wearing that shirt with the gold buttons...

Paging Doctor Heimlich. Doctor Heimlich to the shuffleboard court.

If you're listening in the metro Atlanta area, you'll want to go eat here.

Bacon is finally an emoticon, along with a buttload of others. These are already on tap for next year. And Facebook Messenger gives gingers some emoji-love.

If you've got any cash left over after backing Murders & Acquisitions, head on back to Kickstarter and check out this cat-licking tongue prosthesis. Or not.

In Georgia (no, the other one), protest gives new meaning to "smoked sausage". No Andy, it's not that.

As Heard About On NerdBurger™, it's Tape Face guy.

And, As Read On NerdBurger™ by our personal history nut Jim... Mr. Kipps is, in fact, not lost to history. According to, Thomas (not Bob) Kipps was Purse-bearer to Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon and the Lord Chancellor himself! You've been NerdBurgered!
