Feed Dump: Things Get Weird with Andy

Things Get Weird with Andy

Andy and Alex debate what exactly goes into a 'rob job', how you pronounce 'dachshund' and just how far they can derail an episode.

Watch Video

I'm sure that there are a great many political jokes that could be made about the relative success and validity of being a professional robber!

And I agree with Andy; there's nothing funny about needing to clean up spilled oil. Even if it was used as a Home Alone-style trap/distraction to cause pursuers to slip over themselves and fall as they were giving chase to the guy who ran away.

Andy and Alex are by far my favourite combination of guest dumpers.

So if Guy Fuck is pronounced Guy Fawkes.....oh snap! He looked like this, didn't he?

My ex's last name was changed Fuchs, which is German, changed to Fox.

So I don't see Fuck being changed from the German Fuch being legit..

Wow, it let me put that word in through the censors? I feel kinda... dirty...

Er, no. German for fox is "Fuchs" and I can't for the life of me find any indication anyone ever used a 'ck' in there or any indication that any early form of the language ever used an 'i' sound at the end.

On the other hand, the last name "Fick" is actually around and means precisely fuck because it stems from the same root word meaning "to stab" and originally probably referred to the proud business of testing swords.

Then again, the German immigrants to Brazil may have been subject to serious compatibility issues with the Portuguese-speaking authorities struggling to make sense of their last names, warping them significantly over generations.

Oil is a bitch to clean, but so is honey.

Damn, I really like Andy and Alex, but... "and just how far they can derail an episode.", that's true.
Somehow didn't crack a smile even once this week.

Well, at least that hat was cool.

What the heck is a dash hound, anyway? ^_^

I though they said "dash hound" at first, but then I looked up Teckel (the dog in the story is one) on Wikipedia and turns out ... well ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dachshund

Yeah, I knew what she meant (hence the ^_^ smiley), I just find it funny that she, like so many English-speakers (particularly in North America), have such a difficult time with the pronunciation.

Great Feed Dump. :) Glad it's going to continue even though LRR is leaving the Escapist.

I'm an English speaker from North America, and this is surprisingly the first time I've ever heard dachshund not pronounced like "docks-hoond" with the oo in there meant to be pronounced like book.

Andy is a gift. Also LRR are leaving? So not fetch.

It's cool bro they're still around and will be doing everything they have before sans Unskippable. And honestly with the Patrion Mystery box they may do an unskippable esque thing in the future. And hey they do like 40 hours a week of streaming video games anyways.

I'm going to miss commenting on this show here...

I'm glad that Feed Dump will continue anyway! :D

in the first story it looks like somone played too many NES games where oil spills was normal thing.

and yeah looks like i need to be catching up on your other shows now.

I know, just...end of an era here.

One more thing to watch on Youtube I guess, and one fewer reason to visit here.

And for some reason I can never sync my schedule to watch what I want to watch on their stream.

So by now it's pretty much official that the Escapist has some sort of terminal illness that causes it to repel video content, right? I'm really just waiting for the day Yahtzee announces his leave and that'll be the final nail in the coffin for this site as far as i'm concerned.

Rest assured, we have more video shows in the works and ZP's not going anywhere. With any luck, the shows we're bringing on will have the same kind of incredible run we've had with LRR these past several years.

We're incredibly sad to see LRR go, as we've had an exceptional relationship with the crew for going on forever here at The Escapist. Unfortunately, as Graham mentioned, viewership is down on Unskippable. It doesn't make sense for us to continue the show with the current agreement, and it doesn't make sense for LRR to continue the show at lower rates.

To everybody that just can't get enough LRR: I'd encourage you all to go check out their Patreon and consider supporting them there.

To the LRR Crew: We love you! See you at PAX!

I'm also an English-speaker from North America (Ohio born and raised). I had always heard it pronounced "docksoond" or "doxsund" or something similar, as well ... up until just the last couple of years, when I'm suddenly noticing people pronouncing it "doshund" or "dashoond" or something similar to that. It doesn't seem like all that difficult a word. This was the first time I'd ever heard anyone pronounce it "dash hound" though. Odd.
