does anyone who listens to mbmbam have either excellent Google skills or an encyclopedic memory for which bits were in which episode?
I started listening to the podcast around either 200 or 250 and I think it was pretty early in my listening experience when a guy wrote in like “I have a crush on this grocery store cashier, if I buy flowers for her is that cool and smooth or should I use my words,”
and they were like “you should do neither of those things, buddy, you should in no way hit on people at their workplace! you are a customer! do not do that! we are not joking, do not do this”
I feel like the phrase “human zoo,” was used but remember nothing else verbatim.
(context for this is that I definitely had a small crush on the queer cashier at the grocery store I used to go to. they often complimented my clothes or, like, keychain/phone case type accessories and they were very cute, however, I was raised in society not in a barn by wolves, so I never like, flirted with them, and if I had the barn wolves would have been ashamed of me!)
anyway, I would like to locate this bit! thanks for your help, Tumblr
I told my mom about the mbmbam bit where Justin says uploading berries and cream to tiktok is his most well known work but will have no benefit to him and now "berries and cream" is slang in our house for getting a pointlessly popular post on social media
this bean dad discourse is so insane because at first I couldn’t see exactly how a dad being kind of a jerk in an attempt to teach his kid how to figure out a can opener was so bad that the mcelroys took his song off of their podcast after 9 years
but then I saw those fucking tweets and now I’m wondering how a can of fucking beans was the reason they removed this guy from their brand
I mean I love the mcelroys but holy shit,,, they weren’t aware of any of those tweets until now? it took people getting mad about the bean thing and actually FINDING the racist and anti-semite stuff for them to make this change? it’s been nine years and they’ve been thanking him for his song in every episode of their podcast for nearly a decade and only remove him from their brand when their audience finds out he’s a piece of shit? someone please explain this for me because I really really want to know that this is because they are good people and not just content creators trying to protect their brand
