    Great episode guys. I have three things to say.

    1. Stephen – Haha! You didn’t just gloss over my comment in the Poll this week, you glossed over everyone’s comments! Muahahahahaha!

    2. Matthew – Every time you make a HIMYM reference, I smile or laugh. As that is one of my favorite shows, I find myself making references to it quite frequently. I just wanted to let you know that, while Stephen and Rodrigo don’t seem to acknowledge or care about them, they are appreciated.

    3. Slappy – Thanks for the welcome to the forums. I’m already enjoying myself on there.

    For some reason when I was young Earthworm Jim never spoke to me it was only years later that I really found his humor. Ratfist is great humor and I’m glad I have this book. Its not for everyone but what is.

    Here is a interview I heard a while ago talking to Doug TenNapel about his politics and Ratfist I think its useful to understand Doug’s point of view. Also has some view pokes at the modern video games industry. http://newledger.com/podcasts/CoffeeandMarkets071211.mp3

    Keep up the good work
