Episode 051 "Infinity War, Nintendo Cereal and Electric Material"
In an episode filled with innuendo and hilarity, the guys have fun discussing a new organic material that generates its own electricity, Nintendo continues to win the current gaming system wars with a console that is JUUUUST good enough and then they come up with an amiibo based cereal that you can both eat and use to unlock bonuses in game. The episode wraps with some great movie news including the Hellboy Reboot with David Harbour and of course the new Avengers : Infinity War trailer drops and the world rejoiced! We dare you not to laugh during this one! ----more---- Weekly Riddle: In a foot race, Jerry was neither first nor last. Janet beat Jerry, Jerry beat Pat. Charlie was neither first nor last.

It’s called simply “Super Mario Cereal” and hits shelves Dec. 11th. But what’s crazy is that the box the cereal comes in is NFC enabled and if Switch/Super Mario Odessey players tap the cereal box on their console it will unlock some minor loot in game, like extra coins or hearts. Marvel Studio’s Avengers : Infinity War Official Trailer Drops...Jaws Around the World. Let’s be honest, this looks incredibly insane.

But three things stand out in this trailer. #1) Chris Pratt’s `Stache is killing it at the end of the trailer, #2) Cap’s beard is being talked about a crazy amount all over the internet so it seems it should be called Avengers: Facial Hair War instead. #3) Adam makes a good point, #whereisHawkeye?
