  • Chester Beltowski: Show idea… So I’m in the shower, lathering up my naked body, running my fingers through my luscious beard, and thinking about how full my schedule is once I return to the US (on Feb 29), and I realized I need to pick up some Vitamin C. Why? you ask… Because right after I get home, I head to my first bear run of the year, Fur Flee. I then thought, this would make a great topic for COL. I know our good friend Ches has mentioned that he has a pre-run regiment for warding off Kennel Cough aka bear flu. So why not have a show about the dos and don’ts of staying healthy at before, during, and after a bear run.

Urbandictionary with Gary

  • titleitisthe overwhelming compulsion to have a title, any title, while failing to live up to the standard of that title.

    John’s breath reeks of titleitis – he sounds like some self-important schmuck since he became club treasurer. He still can’t balance the check book.
