Our old pal John Bassett joins us in the new studio for a special (*cough* Mitcz's b-da *cough) riffin episode. Teddy brings the heat in the first few minutes after a meme gets out of hand, we discuss the spread of political correctness in another meme, there's some discussion of our childhoods, sports, old jobs, and more. A spontaneous game is created when Mitcz tries to name one president for every Star Wars character he can name, and he finally dominates a home-spun Riffin Game. Teddy still wins Google Feud, though.
Comedian John Basset comes to the House of Riff and the ridiculousness goes off the charts. After a brief discussion of Mitcz's roofie incident, we focus on CNN's faux pas of playing Coolio's "Fantastic Voyage" over a montage of a 103 black woman driving around. This leads to some love for Weird Al (as Teddy says "Weird Al is an institution") and his recent troubles with annoyingly dramatic Lady Gaga. When a man dressed as Gumby fails in his attempt to rob a San Diego 7-11, Teddy struggles to regain his composure, and we discuss other weird TV of the 80s (of which Mitcz is woefully ignorant about). The show closes out with a dissertation on the insanity of Souljah Boy.
