Listen to EOL Episode 8: Shake N Cake



This month, we’re joined once again by Byron Lee, who appears to have an unhealthy fascination with the third chair. Our chairs aren’t nearly as comfortable as a ride in the Delorian, but once we’re all strapped in, we travel back to the future to talk bacon, Easter candy, the consumption of an entire convention, and a lot more.

One Response to “EOL Episode 8: Shake N Cake”

    EOL Crew,

    With all of your talk about bacon, I have no clue how you can skip over one very important food group:

    GelatinousMeat, aka SPiced hAM.

    This product provides the most convenient way to enjoy a five star meal following the Zombie apocalypse, or after training for the invasion after using such Apps like Zombie Run and Where’s my Ducky. In the event the Zombies fail to show up, you will at least have a stockpile of perfectly good meat for months to come.

    Besides, what other pre-cooked meat product comes in flavors such as:
    – Classic
    – Low Sodium
    – Bacon
    – Smoked
    – Hot and Spicy
    – Jalapeños
    – Lite
    – Cheese
    – Turkey

    This is the perfect food, having been featured in such music videos like:
    And many more you can enjoy by visiting the SPAM Mecca in Austin, MN. Hmmmm, MN really sounds closely like mmmmmm, the same sound one emits after enjoying SPAM. Can you just imagine mowing down on Twinkies and SPAM sandwich, or SPAM with DQ soft were.
