Back when the TV network TLC sold their soul to Satan for ratings, no one could’ve seen how much a show like 19 Kids and Counting would come back to haunt them. Well, no one that is except anyone paying attention. When your family life is based on god, procreating, and home-schooling, the environment lends itself to some of those 19 kids and counting to turn out a bit off. You knew at least a couple these kids were going to turn out to be murderers, kid touchers, or bronies. Josh Duggar, eldest horny impulse of Jim Bob Duggar, has been found out to be molesting kids- more specifically, his sisters. Now to be fair, he was 15 at the time so that makes it… well, not ok, but… less criminal? When kids molest kids, how do you handle it? I’m guessing any way other than how the Duggars handled it. You’ll have to listen for the full analysis, but it would seem Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting has a lot in common with the Targaryens on Game of Thrones.
Speaking of Game of Thrones, the Internet morphed into its final form last week to bring hell down upon the wildly successful HBO Show. In last week’s episode, one of the main characters, Sansa Stark, was raped. This made people angry because she’s a character we all have watched horrible things happen to over five seasons, and it seems like we’re getting close to the limit of how much we can take. This is exactly why Game of Thrones is brilliant- it doesn’t live within the confines of what you, the stupid viewer, think is an appropriate amount of good, bad or rape-y things to have occur. It lives within the realm of what awful shit actually happens. The damsel isn’t always rescued. The rape isn’t stopped. It cuts us very deeply emotionally and makes us uncomfortable. That’s what art does. It pushes us outside of what we think to feel emotions on a raw level. To deem any part of the story unnecessary or ill-conceived before the story ends is to be a conceited fool. It’s not your story to tell, and you don’t yet know the reasons behind the decision to go this way. To assume anything otherwise is to show your lack of critical thinking. And you don’t want to be lacking in critical thinking- look what happened to Sansa!
John Mayer is an extremely rich douchebag. Normally we wouldn’t waste any time on such a bore, but he is involved in a first world problem so ridiculous, it must be laughed at. This story is best heard on the show rather than explained here, but just know this: John Mayer is dropping his lawsuit against his Rolex dealer because two years of lawyer fees and research has proven that John’s Rolexes are in fact legit. Try to wrap your head around that problem.
Aurora Snow is the angel of our devilish show. She was famous for being an adult film superstar, and now is a regular contributor to The Daily Beast, a little website that gets like 4 million hits a day. She has been on our show several times, contributes great material, and is generally an awesome human being. We are announcing today that starting with this episode we are teaming up with Aurora to bring you extended discussions and coverage of her articles. She writes articles that are such a natural fit for our usual topics that this seemed like an obvious move. We’ll have a place on our site where you can get caught up on her latest contributions, which we will discuss on the show. In fact, we start this week with her Twitter porn purge article. Things look bleak for porn stars… and us! Aurora in turn will help us spread the wonderful world of the Devil’s Advocates to her sizable social media following by letting them know whenever we discuss her articles so they can check it out. It’s a win-win as they say in the corporate world. Of course, they probably used that term when they decided to increase the amount of credit default swap activity, so you never really know how these things are going to turn out.
