As is always the case when our friends from LBFA stop by, things are quick to go off the rails in a way that leads us to strongly recommend that you don't listen to this one at work. Or in public. Or with other people.
In honor of our anniversary, we turn the show over to you, the listener, to do an entire show's worth of questions from our audience! The result is, of course, questions on topics ranging from cannibalism to sexy art to who we'd like to have on our next hundred episodes, but when a listener asks "Who would win in a fight between Tupac and OMAC," things get downright acronymic:
Sims: First, we have to determine what "TUPAC" stands for.
Haley: It stands for "Titular Ultimate... Piece..."
Sims: I think TUPAC would be, in the tradition of ULTIMATUM, the "Totally United People's Army Corps."
Haley: Way to show me up, Chris Sims.
Sims: I'm really good at acronyms in comics.
When the question of how to deal with expiration dates on food comes up, War Rocket Ajax does what it does best and tells you way more than you ever wanted to know about your favorite creators:
Roberson: Dude, so I read one time that you can only have pasta sauce and picante salsa in the fridge after being opened for something like 48 hours, and I am Puritanical about that. When that sh** hits 72 hours, it goes in the trash.
Baker: First of all, Chris is a hypochondriac, so you just kinda have to roll with it. I think a week would be fine.
Roberson: That's not what science says! Now, to be fair, every once in a while, if I don't want to go to the grocery store, I will eat the salsa after like three or four days, and I constantly think "Well this could be it. This is the one that gets me."
Baker: This is what happens in our house: We have bread or some food or whatever, and [Chris and Allison's daughter] Georgia's like "Oh, can I have a hot dog?" And we look, and the hot dog buns are kind of old, and she's like "Oh, those will kill me and I can't eat those." Because my husband has basically trained her that week-old hot dog buns will kill her if she eats them.
Roberson: Raising her right.
Plus, find out about Matt Wilson's biggest regret and the time Darwyn Cooke threatened to kill Chris Haley, and so, so much more.

PunisherMax #22: "Obviously having Steve Dillon as your artist doesn't ever hurt a book, and he kills it on PunisherMax." "Literally."
Wolverine and the X-Men #5: "If this comic lasts a hundred issues, this is going to be one tumultuous school to be at." "Those first three issues of Wolverine and the X-Men, and also finishing the Dark Angel saga in Uncanny X-Force were like two of the best experiences I've had reading comics in as long as I can remember. In this day, with so much out there, the age I'm at, and how cynical people can be about comics is really saying something."
