Episode #262 – Sherlock Gnomes

We discuss Sherlock Gnomes, the sequel to Gnomeo and Juliet, the first movie entirely based on a stupid rhyme. Meanwhile Stuart somehow forgets the song Rocket Man, Elliott remembers every OTHER song, and Dan talks far too much about sex swings.

    I was going to say that “Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die” is a pretty stupid rhyme, but on reflexion it’s more unpleasant than stupid, and as George Carlin pointed-out, the original nursery rhyme presents a reasonable (unpleasant) reproductive strategy….

  2. Gersld Fnord says:

    Elliott’s ‘erotic adventurer’ vocation makes me want to ask Stuart if he’s ever DM’d a sexual adventure and if there is in fact a combination monster manual/sex manual, and what do the EPs for different acts look like?

  3. Dave says:

    “A cowboy went back to Hell today” earned an actual LOL from me, excellent work.

      and also “I feel like that is the kind of pressure to bring out the best in Ernest.”

      • Christoph Jeremy Schuerch says:

        Hell yeah. I was really happy to see a little shout there too. And a great quip from Elliott.

    • Christoph Jeremy Schuerch says:

      I don’t know if Stuart earned his exit from the penalty box there. Confusing neoconservative former US ambassador to the United Nations Michael Bolton with Garbage pop jazz singer Michael Buble.

    Stu, nice Homestar Runner reference (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgD4OhIokjU) intentional or not
    Did I miss a “ci-gnome-atic universe” joke, or was one not made?

  6. Wildride says:

    The Gnomes are actually distant cousins to the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who. So, they don’t pretend to be frozen when observed, they are quantum locked when observed. They also kill people by sending them back in time to die of old age, but none of that occurs on screen. It’s mostly subtext.
