This “episode” defies explanation.

The weak attempt is:

There is NO show this week.  Repeat, because of cons, there is no real show.  Instead, we are giving you a extra naughty bonus bit of 3 separate outtakes from our upcoming, REAL episode titled, “The Myth of the Great GM”- that one will be awesome.  This one is incredibly raunchy.

If you didn’t think the Penny Arcade Dickwolves strip or the following “We hate rapers and all the rapes they do” was one of the funniest things ever, you won’t think this is either.
