Men in Charge Season 11, Episode 24: Why Kevin, Not Tony, Comes Up with the Best Titles!

Yes, Kevin thinks up the best episode titles, but he confesses to a being a life-long liar and tries to throw the blame for these best titles onto Tony. In the meantime, they discuss what it means to be a “proto-martyr.” The show’s five (5!) segments start with the final “Life Lessons with Oswald Spellman,” this time about milky path to Covid fraud. Next is a commercial for “Time Served,” from our friendly inmates at the Lower Heights correctional facility. If you don’t have enough time during the day, these inmates will sell you some of theirs! After that, two separate segments about our Kushner pals: “Ivanka’s Tea with the Church Ladies,” and “Jared’s Beer with the Fellas.” First, church wine, and then beer and chainsaws! Finally, to clear out the Men in Charge mildewed basement, all the show’s sound effects are now for sale, whether it’s the Tasmanian Devil’s howl or the inevitable smashing of the plate-glass window: “All Sounds Must Go!”

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.
