Wookiee’s Character:

Name
Polebiter the RodMuncher

Powers
Gnaws iron, bites steel

A bit of backstory
He was locked in playpens at an early age, always kept out of the way.  First they were regular, but he kept chewing his way out, so his parents spent lots of money on different fences. And dentists. Finally they settled on obsidian teeth and gastric bypass. The metal slides out of his system without being digested, but it sometimes gets stuck if he doesn’t chew his food well enough. He sings himself to sleep at night with the rhyme “chew your food, times: 32, ’cause if you don’t, then you won’t poo! If you chew enough, you’ll make the mud, so always chew 2 times more, so there’ll be less blood!” so he doesn’t forget. And because of the whole ‘parents locked him up’ thing.

Lily’s Character:

In this universe, super villains are mandated by the government to retire at the age of 62. If they continue to operate as super villains after the age of 62 they are remitted to the Federal Department of Retirement (FDR). The FDR employs just one agent. His name is Fredrick Tennessee. Freddy Tenny — as he is known by his enemies, a name which he hates — has one task. That task? Retiring aged super villains. Does he kill them? No. Does he wipe out their minions? No. He puts them into Doom Skull Manor Retirement Community in Sunny Pines, Florida, where they are destined to play bridge and shuffleboard for the rest of their nefarious days.

In addition to being supernaturally stoic and crotchety and a member of AARP since birth, his superpower is actually the ability to sense when hipsters are about to step onto an old person’s lawn. He can also turn water into prune juice and he has a trademark on “Kid’s these days….”

When a child, he got his eye shot out with a Red Rider BB gun and never wanted to be — or deal with — children again. Hence his career.

P.S. He likes his egg rolls extra extra saucy, as evident in the photo. Extra saucy. No, more sauce. More. Ok, there you go.

He’s DC for life, yo. Those guys from Arkham are hacks.

This week’s episode is brought to you by Fisi and the Nevermores. A controversial band that may or may not be a “lil rapey”.

176. Your Friendly Sponsors For The End Of The World
Conditional Nutrionals, No-More Fictional!

This week on Gee-Jay and the Pang! Wookiee wonders if a war were declared near his house (it was just an air show complete with WWII strafing reenactments… What a thing to miss)! Fisi has views on Hollywood Hormones all over the news, and Pj ponders pattern … patronage. That’ll make sense after you listen., I’m sure.

 

Gif of the Week

MIA. I blame Brazen, he had things to do and left this week’s gif in his trousers.

You Best Express Yourself Before’st You Mess Yourself. – Gland Expressing, JK Growling

175. It Bothers His Hearing Aids
This week on PJ and the Gang, Fisi solves the mystery of losing socks in the wash, Brazen and Pj describe glandular ways of expressing themselves, and Wookiee has a bit of a review for the first King Killer Chronicles book, but since its longer than a Kevin Smith movie monologue, he still has a ways to go before finishing.

Come one, come all! Listen to our stories short, swarthy and tall!

174. Digital Content: We Hardly Knew Ye
The Gang waxes vieweristic about all things consumer:
The Bad Batch movie, Stranger Things 2, streaming  services, audiobook narrators… Is nothing safe? Certainly not Buffalo Wild Wings’ portion labeling. How does a ‘snack’ size come before a ‘bite’ size? A bite is the smallest bit of eating you can do. Jesus people… trigger my OCD, why don’t you.
