Men in Charge Season 10, Episode 24: Our Kids Think We're Virgins!

Faced with implacable offspring, Tony and Kevin wonder if indeed they are virgins, or whether they even have kids, or if their kids adopted them, or whether anything has ever actually happened. Plus, there’s the incident with the garbage truck and why Tony has to leave the show. In the first segment, Dan Blanche, once the longest-serving adjunct writing instructor at Lower Heights Community College, is out of jail and back in the classroom, only to be faced with a “Football Shakedown” as the football coach collects student lunch money to support the football team. Next, Roger Basement interviews the author of a “Real Estate Thesaurus,” who explains how bad your house really is. Finally, Johnny Hambone returns, along with Big Nell, as they wait—and wait—for the White Suburban Moms’ criminal syndicate to dispose of them by helicopter. Not a virgin to be found anywhere…

Kevin Decker, Professor of Philosophy, was left holding the bag when Tony Flinn recently retired from Eastern Washington University. That bag was full of cats. At first, he thought they were cute, but then they woke up and started mauling him. It turned out that the cats were mountain lion cubs, often referred to incorrectly as “cougars.” One had rabies. From his now-permanent hospital bed, Kevin writes for and co-produces “Men in Charge,” the title of which may or may not be ironic
Tony Flinn, known around the model railroad track in his basement as “Professor of English, Emeritus,” recently retired from Eastern Washington University to age in place, like an old car up on blocks in the barn, convenient for climbing behind the wheel and saying “Vroom! Vroom!” He and his co-host and co-producer, Kevin Decker, have been writing and performing in “Men in Charge” since probably 2014, or even earlier, depending on whether you’re using the Julian or Gregorian calendar.
