Episode 176 : Nailing Down Kansas

This is part 2 of last week, so we just jump right in! More superhero cartoons. And then a glitch in the Matrix happens, and we get a Hat question that’s already been drawn! Then Tony pretty much gives up. Enjoy!



Are you a morning person or a night owl? — Anonymous

Dear Hatleks, What is your favorite brand of chocolate? — Sir Guido

*Dear Hatleks, William is weird/vegetarian. What is the most underrated vegetable? I think brussel sprouts. — Sir Guido 

“*” indicates question was abridged/digested.

    Beets are eeeeeeevil!

    The smell of them makes me feel nauseous and gives me a headache. There seems to be a certain percentage of the population that has this reaction. I read something that says they lower blood pressure, and since my blood pressure is already kind of abnormally low I wonder if the effect of the smell is my body’s way of saying–what! do you want to have a pulse? stay away from that stuff!

    • William says:

      Jas… beets can’t be evil.

      To wit…

      You are evil. You’ve admitted this on many occasions while openly plotting to take over the world. In fact, what allows you to plot so openly is the inevitability of your success derived from the high purity grade of your thoroughly refined wickeness.

      And you hate beets.

      Thus, beets must be The Vegetable of Shining Goodness That Shames All Other Vegetables With Its Glory.

      Plus Tony is also evil.

    I have heard many people who are beet lovers, I do not understand that; and although just an opinion of their own, these people are objectively wrong. Now, in the same vein of Crimes Against Food, I picked up what I firmly belief would be William’s least favorite chocolate bar.


  3. SirGuido says:

    I am truly an omnivore. I could never be a full on vegetarian, but I have no issue with the occasional meatless meal. I love vegetables almost as much as William does. I also love meat in the very same ways. I love a lot of the underrated vegetables except most of them I prefer raw, like spinach.

  4. Beth says:

    Beets are gross. In my adult life, I’ve tried a couple times to give them a fair shake, but they just do not taste good to me. I have also not been much a fan of Swiss Chard or kale, but I am trying to find ways to prepare them so that I start to like them.

  5. jas says:

    Beth, I’ve found with rainbow chard, the red ones have a slight beet taste. Whatever is making them both red is the root (:-)) of what I don’t like. Kale chips are really good. I like putting chard in soups with lots of spice–something like a gumbo with lots of garlic, or something with spanish paprika for a smoky flavor.

  6. Mark says:

    For the record, I don’t find the superhero stuff boring. I just don’t have much, if anything, to say in response.

    Morning prick vs. Night Owl: Definitely the later, though these days I get up at 06:30 every weekday to be at work on time. *sigh*

    Is 08:00 early?: Well, I feel like it should be; but given how long I’ve been getting up as early as do, I feel lucky/happy to ever get to sleep that late.

    Dark in morning/at night: Eh, I don’t care for that at all. I don’t really like bright sunny days, but never seeing the sun makes me irratable.

    Leave us hanging?: Cripes at least tell us what episode of the videos it’s in!

    Favorite brand of chocolate: Ooooh, good question. There are many good chocolates out there.

    Inquire Within: No, I don’t believe I was invited to assist with that short film.

    Cadbury as “non-American” chocolate: Seriously? It’s over-sugared chocolate just as bad as Hershey’s.

    Smores: Of course you use Hershey’s for this; it’s like Velvetta is the best cheese for grilled cheese sandwiches. It’s not good (or good for you) but it melts nicely and blends with the other ingredients well.

    Underrated veggies: Brussel sprouts are the classic. As for beets, I’m with Tony; fuck beets. Kale is easy to prepare right: wash, dry, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt toss in the oven, bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees (I think, would have to double-check with the wife) and you’ve got delicious kale chips. They fill the same snacking niche as potato chips for me.

    Overratted veggie: Cauliflower, that shit’s just nasty.

    Smell of meat: I won’t get an erection thinking about meat (eww) but my mouth will water at the thought of some meats.
