  • "Jimmy has fancy plans, and pants to match."....

    Office employee terminator Andrea has something new that has the WNYX staff up in arms about: she wants to make them take a polygraph test. One of the questions asks each employee if they know that one of their co-workers is hiding a criminal past. No one is nervous about answering that question until Lisa pipes up with some interesting information that will force the staff to lie. Andrea has already fired Matthew and other lower level employees, so who knows what will happen in one gets caught lying or gives an undesired answer to a question? This makes some of the staff go to extraordinary lengths to be able to beat the test and the absolute highlight of the episode is Dave's taking of the polygraph test.

    While all of this is going on, Jimmy James begins his US tour of his book "Jimmy James: Capitalist Lion Tamer" - it had flopped in the US years before but, after being translated into Japanese, it has been the top selling book in Japan. Jimmy thought to translate the Japanese version back into English to better sell the book, but he is shocked when he sees that his book got lost in translation with the new title being "Jimmy James: Macho Business Donkey Wrestler." Imagine, if you will, what the bulk of the book is like if the title got butchered so badly.

    "Super Karate Monkey Death Car" is a hilarious episode of NewsRadio - catch it if you can.
