OSNAP: Pornographic Anne Frank

Later, Kevin and Merrill look at some wacky news, including a story about a woman trying to get people to make fun of her on camera, how Anne Frank wrote pornography, whether they would try chocolate-covered portabella, why walking around naked is dangerous and, of course, a guy having sex with a dog. Oh, snap!
In this very special episode: The Idiots are on fire this week, both for television and for movies.

Then it’s into the television news, which is pretty hearty this week and open for discussion.

Finally, they lay down some recommendations and DVD picks before assembling their way out of here.
