I do promise that you will laugh more listening to this episode than you would have watching 1993's adventure comedy film Super Mario Bros. Our Plot Summary Mad Libs is straight up offensive and I almost feel like I owe Kari and apology. Almost.

Most importantly though, watching this film was worth it because we, with the help of all of YOU, raised over $900 for the children at CS Mott Children's Hospital! I cannot wait to bring all these great gifts to the kids there and I will be documenting the fun on our Ko-fi page and on Twitter
