Episode 107 - Goth Sloth

Kirby sucks a glorious amount in this most wondrous of episodes.  Sadness has returned and it's as confusing as ever. While we're talking about confusing things how about PadDefender? Is it like a Frog Fractions thing? Is life as we know it just an elaborate Frog Fractions publicity stunt? Bugs. We're all very confused. Icarus Proudbottom saves the day though and we get to tap a chicken.
Crowd Funding Pick: Icarus Proudbottom: Starship Captain (Four way tie)
Cheapskate's Game Club: You have to win the game
