0 – Last week was a disingenuous Happy New Year. This week is a for-real Happy New Year. Lottery is more expensive. There’s a crazy guy who’s trying to make a new calendar.
5 – There is some new NNF imagery around the room. The guys talk about sweeping dried cum. 10 – Jimmy doesn’t want Dan to cancel his credit card. The guys talk about funny doctor shows.
15 – Guest Mike Siegel is back from Asia. The guys talk about Matt’s nickname: The Barber, which Matt continues to hate. Jimmy announces contest winners.
20 – 25: Jimmy keeps announcing contest winners.
30 – Eliot thought Jimmy’s Chicago shirt was a UCLA shirt. The guys talk about Mike’s trip to Asia.
