@abigcat some people are in a state of perpetual yawning. its a real disorder. #TMH 

@EffervescentG Some people do not actually have faces. They are just two backs of a head walking around. One of them has a ponytail. #TMH 

@Bradleybugman Instead on an “@”, I use a small, well-trained worm. #tmh 


@JPLC If echo-y muffling means bathroom, what about the Charlie Brown parents? #TMH

@robynneblume @JPLC The parents never left the bathroom, and that’s why we never saw them. It makes perfect sense! #tmh 


@hawkeyewr #tmh Charlie Brown is actually about a small community of ESL children growing up. 

@Bradleybugman The children speak English and the parents speak brass orchestra. #tmh 


@rkarl10 #tmh Reginald Veljohnson was the cop in Die Hard 

@cephalopod_gal Carl Winslow! He was also in Ghostbusters! Reggie VelJohnson YEAH. #tmh

@Kouban He doesn’t even know he’s an actor; he thinks he’s an actual cop who’s staking out all of these Hollywood sets. #tmh

@medscholaradaml White people always start raps with “my name is [name] and I’m a [rhymes with name]” #tmh

@JPLC The Docktrix: A cut of the Matrix in which leather is replaced with Dockers. #tmh

@Albedo12 I like those acronyms that have a lowercase letter in them, like “CHiPs”. There’s something apologetic about them. #tmh

@theggerus Hawaii is an island chain. So you’ll need some metal cutters to explore it all. #tmh

@richmagahiz A smart moonshiner should have labelled his jugs with XXXI to gain an edge #tmh

@dtthelegend #tmh do hipsters write “thirty” on their jugs of booze?

@Kouban moonshine jugs were originally used to play Tic-Tac-Toe, but X always won, so it turned into a code. #tmh

@Albedo12 MMM Moonshine was much tastier #tmh

@CSpain_design The most effective tonic to cure a moonshine hangover is anything from a jug labelled “OOO” #tmh

@frostyplum @Albedo12 PPP moonshine generally ended up in a puddle against the wall. #tmh

@Trogluddite @tweethard I suspect the garage fire occurred in an attempt to Podcast by Smoke Signal. Very dangerous #TMH

@sekelsky @tweethard #tmh My dad has boxes and boxes of old records… it must be archives of everyone’s dad’s podcasts.

@Hamiltwan How sure are we that David and Kris are not actually unknowing kidnapping victims? #TMH

@frostyplum @tweethard I don’t think kidnapped men will be as apt to take on sophisticated conversation subjects. #tmh

@rkarl10 @frostyplum “so, how about that space program?” “LET ME OUT OF HERE!” “well, that’s an interesting stance…” #tmh

@ignorant_genius Popular topics for this new podcast: “where are we?”, “please feed us”, “I miss my family”, and “*grows silently*”. #tmh

@CSpain_design They say puberty can occur at different ages for different people, but really it’s just when you’ve had your 9th memorable experience #tmh

@Trogluddite @tweethard Malky … and they even forgot the Bang! #TMH

@latimagic @tweethard David Malky ? is spelled with a questionmark. #tmh

@thisisfalacci whoa @Malki! you’re the original “I Like Turtles” kid #tmh

@CSpain_design The real reason for weighing bodies down is because the government wanted to crack down on gangs of teen corpse-surfers #tmh

@neoeo A tender thought: your loved ones encased in graffiti-strewn highway dividers. #TMH

@jjackunrau @tweethard This is the best podcast to listen to before my grandma’s funeral on Friday. #noonewillwanttohearallmynewfacts #tmh

@kcbanner #tmh This show exists: they have 100s of episodes of them microwaving things.

@richmagahiz @malki Dancing is just dodgeball without the ball #tmh

@benedz #tmh tap dance a morse code rap battle

@Trogluddite @tweethard The last episode of TMH coincides well with the end of my court mandated Podcast listenership #TMH

@Hamiltwan As David and Kris stole #tmh from tweeting my heart, so shall Total Muscled Haberdashery take is when tweeting is no longer hard #tmh

@Sekelsky @tweethard #tmh Kris just wears the burlap sacks from the brocolli he buys

@Kouban It should really be called “I can’t believe I’M not butter!” Products that talk to the consumer are more popular #tmh

@Hamiltwan I Want to Believe (that it is butter) #TMH

@Albedo12 I Can Quite Easily Believe It’s Not Butter #tmh

@Albedo12 Kris is The Font Whisperer #tmh

@ThisIsBenSilver With alchemy, we could turn all this Mislead into MisGOLD! #TMH #NEWW
