Ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow!



This week's episode is all about WORDS! We have a super special guest: 5-time American Crossword Puzzle Tournament Champion and one of the key players from the documentary Word Play, Tyler Hinman! We nerd out over weird words, language, Chris Hansen, and plenty of other weird stuff.

As an avid crossword fan, I was pretty stoked that I knew all of the words in Tyler's quiz. Way cool. Awesome podcast, guys!

Was this the episode the mnemonic device for biological classifications? Cause that exact same shit JUST FUCKING HAPPANED on Community and it's blowing my mind! :lol:

Pierce blurts out the order and is like "I use a mnemonic device!"

I think Dan Harmon must listen to this show.

His mnemonic device is WAY better by the way:

"Kevin, please come over for gay sex"

Did anyone catch 4/19's Community episode?
The episode, titled Virtual Systems Analysis, started with the group talking about taxonomy mnemonics. Good job Dan Harmon.
