tRN053: Zombie Politicians


RAWR! It’s a scary episode when we mix comedy, politics, and poop (usually only two of those are mixed). Don’t pass this episode!

Where’s the new theme song?

We have a new theme song for the Ramen Noodle™ and we want your help! We plan to record it in a fashion similar to our old theme—a cappella. But we want more voices this time. Can you help?

We don’t need great vocal talent. Singing “doo” or “bum bum bum” or “chchchchch” is perfectly acceptable—in fact, that’s what I want! We’ll sing the only lyrical section.

Please email if you can help and we’ll send some PDF sheet music, a synthesized recording of your part, and a MIDI file in case you want to import it into GarageBand or a similar program. Let us know if you prefer hard or simple.

Weekly Noodlism: “did you pass … ?”

People will ask if you passed a test, passed the Walmart, but why isn’t it as common for them to ask if you passed a kidney stone? Instead, let “pass” mean to “poop.” “Did you poop the test?” and so on.

Feedback / Ramen Noodle Experience

I … wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful, clean, and genuinely funny podcast. I tried many podcasts after my favorite podcast, the late Nobody’s Listening (a podcast that won’t soon be forgotten!), died… err… I mean ended. the Ramen Noodle™ was, and still is, the funniest recurring podcast on my iPod. I always anticipate each episode y’all put out! I think that the best episodes are “The Chicken is Revolting” (I haven’t laughed that hard in a LONG time! Now I am really careful about refrigerating food.) “Of Fleas and Phlegon”, “2 Dish 2 Wash”(Yes, one of the old ones!), “Colon Pee”, and the latest about the wedding and all of the episodes with Mrs. Wife-Jenny. I cannot express just how thankful I am for your podcast! Y’all certainly do have a “leg up” on the competition!

Thanks so much and sorry for the “incontinence” 😉 ,

P.S. Congratulations on getting married! Y’all are so sweet together!
