Sex ed became a necessary part of school once parents realized that trying to talk to your kids about sex is far too much responsibility for having children. So, let the schools handle it, let the TV teach your kid everything else, and you can go back to trying to forget how much your job sucks and that your eventual death will finalize your failure in doing anything worthwhile in life. However, despite the advances in sex ed and our love of putting ever younger girls in sexy outfits, there was a time where sex ed was a no frills type of class you took in school that didn’t consider anything outside of missionary sex to produce babies as anything necessary or healthy. Gays were thought of as sick deviants, masturbation was a sin brought on by Satan, and… well I guess not much has changed. However, we listen to some sex ed videos from the 50s and 60s to remember a simpler time where you didn’t have to worry about your kid asking you what a rusty trombone or a dirty Sanchez were. I won’t even go in the direction of donkey punches.
In other news, Ben had surgery to remove his traitorous gallbladder this week. He shares the story to inspire everyone how efficient and caring the healthcare industry has become. During his procedure, he felt cared for, competently dealt with, adequately listened to, and ultimately dealt with in a most dignified and appropriate manner. As you let the sarcasm wash over you, listen to the story of him getting rushed through surgery like an oil change, and given the same amount of courtesy as your ’84 LeBaron does when getting a tune-up. It will fill you with a warm, satisfying feeling. That feeling is you making pudding in your pants from fear that you might have to go through this at some point too. Speaking of pudding, we discover that pudding is the ultimate cure-all for what ails you, and we become obsessed with pudding. It’s difficult to explain why this happens and why it’s funny; it’s best you just listen to the episode.
