714Altered Reality
Play
[download]The whole past year feels like a weird sort-of dream, as if reality had been turned on its head. Once we got beyond the circus of our last Presidential election and thought things have calmed down, much of the country was put into deep freeze, including the ENTIRE state of Texas. It's like an extended episode of a Disney+ show we celebrate in song this week, along with an entire family reminding us of lockdown, and we pay respects to Prince Markie Dee of the Fat Boys, gone way too soon.

1. “Totally Fixed Where We Are” by The Marsh Family
2. “WandaVision” by Jeff Whitmire
3. News of the Stupid!
4. “All You Can Eat” by The Fat Boys

            [download]As America takes out the trash with the worst President in history and replaces him with someone who just four years ago was sitting on the curb for free pickup, at least maybe we've all heard the last of songs about Trump.

              [download]On this week's episode, Devo Spice looks forward and back... at the same time... which makes him look a little like a Marty Feldman cosplay. Good thing this isn't TV.
              This week we look forward to another President, go to the dark side for one of the best from The FuMP 2020, and reach further back for a classic MJD parody.
              Trump still has the nuke codes for about a week so rehearse your 1950s hide-under-a-table bomb drills while you listen to this week's episode!
