Welcome to Episode 57 of Thought Cops! This week, we’re joined by Deputy Josh, who makes up 100% of our South Korean fan base. Everyone give him a big “Konnichiwa.”
Before we start off about this week, some news and announcements. First off, hello to any and all new listeners. This weekend alone, both Thought Cops were on Asterios’s Kokkino’s’s Science Friction bonus episode, Engineer Riley’s podcast Anti-Social Engineering, and Officer Grant was on an episode of Dick Masterson’s The Dick Show. So if you’re from any of those places: welcome, and hope you enjoy the show! Don’t forget to subscribe and rate us on iTunes if you wish. We’re glad to have you.
THIS WEEK though, we’re outraged about people trademarking Mundane Phrases™, overly performative reaction videos to video games and anime, and strangely beautiful halo brows.
This episode we begin a new segment called “Beef Before Potatoes,” in which we start a beef with Rucka Rucka Ali for posting this obscene plagiarism of our logo. Catch him alive and turn him in and we’ll give you a free bonus episode.
We also share our thoughts on the Oscars, Brooklyn Barbecue taking over the world, McDonald’s flipping its logo upside down because Wario took over the company, Tupac being boring, white supremacist podcasts, and inclusion riders. This is one you’re not going to want to miss.
Don’t forget to drop us a voicemail at 312-788-7361. If that’s the wrong number, please don’t call it and pretend to be Osama Bin Laden. Also follow us on Twitter if you haven’t already, at @realthoughtcops for all your outrage needs.
