Episode 119: Event Horizon

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, January 27 2010 (9:30 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Another fourcast, of the top JB events of the decade; plus a vacation report, some rants, and a roundup of the latest headlines. Special guests Patti and Hud. (Cameos by Jennifer and Lee.)

    Before we start, here are some hijinks recorded with my laptop, pre-podcast.

    The silliness continued as we started brainstorming other business ventures in which Jimmy could invest.  After restaurants and casinos, branching out into strip clubs seemed inevitable; and here are some of the names we came up with for such a Buffett-themed establishment:

A Pirate Looks at Forties
Bigger Than the Both of Us
Smart Woman in No Skirt
I Used to Have Money One Time
Cowboy in the Jungle
Whore Number Three
Lap Service
Defying Gravity
