#245: Beowulf: The Legend


"I’m head of the class
I’m popular
I’m a quarter back
I’m popular
My mom says I’m a catch
I’m popular
I’m never last picked
I’m in the Green Team clique

Being attractive is the most important thing there is
If you wanna catch the biggest fish in your pond
You have to be as attractive as possible
Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean
Wash it at least every two weeks
Once every two weeks
And if you see Johnny Football Hero in the hall
Tell him he played a great game
Tell him you liked his choice in the best of three"

Made the „choice“ to listen to this episode while playing a game they talked about.
Am I being unduly influenced? I think not. I think the podcast just solidified my misgivings about Paperback Adventures (see here)
