2012 was a crazy year in entertainment, what with all of those wacky celebrities getting into hilarious or tragic scrapes, that we decided to recap the year's biggest stories. We talk all about Jay-Z & Beyonce, Lindsay Lohan, Hulk Hogan, Amanda Bynes, Jessica Simpson and some other folks we don't really know much about to sort out what was hot in 2012.
We also discuss our mixed feelings about the lack of an apocalypse this year and how we would hope the end of the world to play out.
Oh, and we also go over Tim's twitter "feud" with none other than 80s icon Richard Marx, who listened to our episode about him and took offense to many of Tim's comments.
This week Tim proposes all December holidays be boiled down into a 1 hour surprise celebration and Tom goes to a Richard Marx concert. We also discuss The Hobbit, commercial jingles, remarking when brothers look like each other, and Tom has trouble accepting that Regis Philbin isn't coming back. Additionally we solve a problem about a man's fear of flying.

On a very special episode, we discuss two beloved Christmas specials: Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas and Frosty the Snowman. Of course, these conversations devolve into Tim's problems with the current state of the Muppets, his feelings about the problems with eight year olds today and an indictment of magicians in general.
Also, we talk about the perils of doing hard drugs and sleeping under a bridge, and solve a problem from a listener involving taking sexy pictures of a lady to raise money for an engagement ring.
