Howdy, Frot fans! Matt Lieb is off living his dreams on Maui, drinking virgin daquiris and getting his picture taken with parrots like a 10-year-old, but as we know, the Frot sleeps for no one, not even when they’re getting lei’d. This week your old pals, comedian Joe Sinclitico and Whoop Dreams star Laremy Legel, are in the virtual Frotquarters to talk about how we’re old and nothing works anymore (…societally), and how it sucks that when you become a father you lose the ability to get in fights with local teens, even when they’ve been very unfair to you. Joe saw the James Bond, No I Will Not Go Out And Die Tonight, so we discuss that, and how we could fix the James Bond franchise. After that, we discuss the latest NFT scandal, with the Evolved Ape NFTs and try to understand what the hell NFTs even are. And whether it counts as fraud if you get ripped off in the act of trying to participate in a Ponzi scheme. Meanwhile, Laremy reveals that he owns NFTs himself, and that he’s heavily invested in animals who play in gutters. We also talk Dave Chappelle, and far too late into the show, Joe reveals that he recently became the inadvertent center of a culture war incident and damn near got himself torn apart by an angry mob. In all honesty, that’s the way I always assumed Joe would go.
One thing I’m annoyed that I didn’t say in the show is that I really wish Ben was still alive to make fun of NFTs. Whenever we talk about them I think about how no one I know would appreciate the humor of NFTs like Ben would. As long as you think about Ben riffing on NFTs with us, maybe a little bit of Ben is still alive in our hearts.
