Men in Charge Season 10, Episode 25: Gazpacho Police--Cold, Silky Power!

Yes, for this episode, Marjorie Taylor Greene makes another laughable appearance, but more about that in a moment. First, Kevin and Tony have to discuss the dangers of gazpacho—what’s behind its “cold, silky power”—and its policing authority? Then we jump into the third episode of “Bruno Calamari, Norwegian Political Operative,” but because Ryan wasn’t available, this is a Bruno-less segment. Strange… Next, in for the seventh episode of “A Man Called Bamby,” Steve wasn’t available, so no Bamby, but Michael the Novelist/Bartender, pulls a neat trick with a manhole. After that, it’s a commercial for Sarah Palin’s “Li’l Patriots Daycare,” where kids learn to shoot Peter Rabbit and breathe exhaust fumes. Finally, in the fourth episode of “Bingo Night at the Kushners’,” Marjorie Taylor Greene flees the Gazpacho Police, only to trap herself in Jared and Ivanka’s mail slot.

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
