Season 10, Episode 14: How to Pet Any Animal!

This episode continues the “animal” theme from the previous episode and then immediately drops it. What’s important, though, is that Kevin and Tony can’t be sued or in any way held accountable for what happens when you pet any animal. They’re all about the “how,” never the “why” or “then what?” While you recover, listen to the offering from our new sponsor, “Our Wedding PowerPoint,” in which Bob and Joan try to sell you access to their wedding PowerPoint. Be the first to be tempted! Next, Big Nell, entrepreneur / enforcer on prison work release, offers another of her exhausting services: “Big Nell’s At-Home Laundry.” Keep your clothes freshly laundered, and she won’t make you use the lye soap this time. Finally, Men in Charge’s favorite alcoholic ruin, Mr. Skids, returns in “Mr. Skids Saves the Church Gun Club.” Will he be conscious during his latest act of heroism? Probably not. But he doesn’t pet a single animal, so he’s fine.

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.
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
