I don't know what they are using on the fries but I wonder how healthy the coating is for you?

The cow-weight show was the most thought provoking episode of all, I thought.

Did I just listen to a paid advertisement? There was very little of substance in this episode. This show as a whole sometimes has trouble with going in depth. But episodes like this (and, e.g., the guess the cow's weight episode) make you question the thesis of the show. The more fluff episodes the show puts out the harder it gets to take a chance on a new episode. And I really hope it was just a fluff episode, and not that the producers forewent to mention they were paid to do this episode in the description because that would be dishonest.
