RERUN: Mr. and Mrs. Mother Brain! w/ Pat Boivin
Jeremy got that vaccine fever (horny for vaccines) for a few days, so we decided to take a week off, in fear that an extra loopy episode could turn our upcoming Part 3 into a 4-Parter. Woof. So here's an oldie from the Captain N days!  Pat from Castle Super Beast joins the podcast to talk about how goddamn fucked up Captain N: The Game Master is! Simon Belmont shoots himself in the ass with a love arrow, accidentally forcing him to fall in love with Mother Brain. Meanwhile, Mega Man and Kid Icarus meet another deeply fucked up cow. But most importantly, the gang fights, for about 5 seconds, Mr. Bones — a cool 80s skeleton man wearing a skeleton shirt. Mr. Bones fuckin rules, you guys. You're gonna love Mr. Bones.
