Then, Mable plays the game "Porn or Punk Song." Starting at 43:30, Kristen plays a Howard Stern trivia game with none other than Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms, Falcon). Even if you don't know or care about Howard Stern, you should find some humor in them geeking out. Who won, Kristen or Brendan? Or, skip it. Starting around 58:30 Kristen asks Brendan some questions, and since they are both drunk from the Howard Stern game, this goes downhill fast.  Songs: Slowest Drink at the Saddest Bar by The Lawrence Arms and Wonder Beer by Naked Raygun
