Welcome Dad-bods, Mansplainers, and ladies, to another episode of Thought Cops! It’s a crossover episode this week as stand-up comedian and follow podcaster Brett Mercer of Big Time Garbage joins us in the battle for a good Skype connection. Make sure to check em out.

“Future Prez” Zuckerberg (yes, president abbreviated with a Z, yes, it is mandatory) saves the planet by speaking directly from the epicenter of the Puerto Rico crisis using a fucking Mii from Wii Sports.

Here’s that weird Lindsey Lohan video we mention in the episode:

I'd link the original video, but it's been deleted, so, sorry for linking you to The Young Turks. My mistake.

Geniuses across the country cause mass temper tantrums trying to get a small box filled with ketchup and teriyaki sauce. What could it be?! You’ll have to listen to find out!

Dove fucks up, Hollywood fucks up, lots of people fuck up. But with great fuck ups, come great responsibilities. Or something like that.

Don’t forget, you’re part of the show, too! Call us at our voicemail 312-788-7361 with any stories or punishments you want the world to know about, and we’ll play it on the show! Seriously! Also don't forget to subscribe to us on iTunes!

Thought Cops: Episode 35

Welcome to Thought Cops, fellow cartoon characters. This week, we're joined by our show's own Stenographer, as well as the notorious Deputy Sleepytime. You know, from the voicemails. They're here to help us dig through the disgusting pile of sludge that is modern day social media, to help investigate the most heinous of outrage-inducing news stories.

Here's the Milo exposé Buzzfeed released this week that I mentioned. It's like a billion pages so don't bother reading it all, just take our words for it.

Here's the only news headline that makes sense to me anymore: "Rocket Man and Dotard Go Bonkers in Toontown." Yes, that's real. Yes, it's the Washington Post.

Here's the Papyrus video from SNL:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVhlJNJopOQ

Plus the guy who created the font "speaking out" about the video. Kill me.

We also mentioned Anthony Fantano this episode, and the "alt-right meme" channel he supposedly had. Considering we recorded this Friday, and are posting it Tuesday night, we didn't have the chance to fit in this update. We'll cover it next episode.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UZqIIy7pAk

We also have a story on semen flutes, a 40 year old Nazi-killing videogame series that's somehow controversial nowadays, the death of AOL Instant Messenger, Cam Newton thinks women talking about sports-ball is amusing, and the Monopoly Man willed himself into existence to protest Equifax.

Like always, make sure to subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Play. Give us a call at 312-788-7361 (312-PENGUINS) and let us know what's outraging you on the internet this week. Thoughts and prayers.

Welcome to another episode of Thought Cops! This week, we're joined by two of the Shrimp Boys, a comedy troupe from out here in Chicago. Make sure to catch them this Saturday, the 7th at the Lincoln Lodge. Also make sure to follow them on Facebook and Youtube, as well as Luke and David's respective Twitters. Here's a list of upcoming shows by them:

This week they help us tackle Twitter word limits, the ongoing war between Flat Earther B.O.B. and Neil "deGrassi: The Next Generation" Tyson, a crappy letter from a kid to a judge in the Toys 'R' Us bankruptcy case, Mario donkey punching Yoshi in the noggin, Rick and Morty's rabid fan base, whether or not Hugh Hefner was a good or a bad person, Steven Seagal looking like a fucking idiot, George Clooney writing the worst poem ever created, and lest we not forget #taketheknee. Jesus Christ. Spoiler alert, no hot takes this episode. There have been enough hot takes for the week, last thing you need from us is another opinion crammed down your throat about whether or not millionaire athletes are paid enough money to make their own adult decisions about how to conduct themselves. Go watch Fox News if you want that. We, on the other hand, hope to wrangle everybody who has an opinion on the topic up and serve them a hot, steaming cup of justice by the next episode. Better start deleting tweets.

Don't forget to subscribe to us on iTunes, and leave us a nice little review. The more reviews we get, the bigger our audience gets, and the more fan-created content we can feature on the show. Also make sure to subscribe to us on Youtube, you never know when we might start creating some more video content. Thanks, and god bless.

SATIRE WARNING, because it's another episode of THOUGHT COPS! This week, we're joined by the infamous Mark Whitney, reporter for The American Tribune. He speaks to us briefly about the Naruto Run Around Trump Tower Event we were at, a followup event of similar nature that he's planning, and the state of modern satire in general. You can follow him and his work here. Definitely the most noteworthy interview we've done to date, and a lot of interesting things were discussed, so please take a listen.

This episode we also play 4 voicemails we got over the past week. You can leave us a voicemail about the show at 312-788-7361. Make sure to listen past the outtro music this episode.

BUT THIS WEEK: a congressman comes out as a furry. Key and Peele of the hit comedy sketch show "Key and Peele" make a new show about punching Nazis. Sean Spicer shows up at the Emmy's and causes a media ruckus. Piers Morgan thinks white people should be able to say the n-word, which really shouldn't surprise anyone. Plus former Google engineer James Damore thinks people want to join the KKK because being a Grand Wizard "sounds pretty cool."

This week's episode is brought to you by the word "dotard." As in: "covfefe dotard." LOOK IT UP. All this and more in Episode 33 of THOUGHT COPS!

Thought Cops: Episode 32

Stifle your gag reflex, because it's episode 32 of Thought Cops! This week, we're joined by Deputy Blake in the hunt against Dan Nainan, the world's oldest millennial. He's struck again. He can't keep getting away with this.

If you haven't seen it yet, here's our video of the Naruto Run Around Trump Tower:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoDwz8YsrEc

This week, we go after the internet's public enemy #1: Pewdiepie. He said the n-word during a video game and then made CNN talk about it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jdh7EQRgps

Here's his apology:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLdxuaxaQwc

We talk at length about a shitty Huffington Post article about a man who breaks up with the city of Chicago. You can read it in all its monstrosity here. It's one of the worst things I've ever read, and I've made it all the way through Finnegan's Wake.

Key to the City this week goes to this little girl:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyD7j_VtVnI

Also this week, Ted Cruz likes a porn tweet, Mario has nipples, and Jim Carrey says nothing is anything. Don't forget to call and leave us a voicemail at (312)788-7361 and subscribe to our subreddit.

Thought Cops: Episode 31

September 11, 2017
00:0000:00

Set your difficulty level to "white person," because it's another episode of THOUGHT COPS. This week, we're joined by Deputy Michael of L.A.'s Desert District to take on thought criminals such as Rush Limbaugh, Toni Basil, Nintendo, and a couple of 90's cartoons that all made the fatal mistake of upsetting people on the internet.

Michael has a short film that's been making the rounds at various film festivals. You can watch it here:

https://vimeo.com/158571684

You can also check out his website, http://michaelpottle.com/

We also have a new voicemail number, (312)788-7361. Call us, leave a voicemail about what's outraging you online, and feel free to toss in your own sentences if you want.

First up this week, we have Rush Limbaugh telling people that Hurricane Irma is a liberal conspiracy, then slithering away into a silent evacuation of his own. If this surprises anyone, you haven't been alive for very long.

Kimberly Paige is in some heat in her race to become the next mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. Apparently it's mot acceptable to list "White" as a qualification. So much for the tolerant left.

Everybody's favorite Italian plumber is no longer so, as Nintendo describes Mario's list of former jobs as being a plumber. I guess going in and out of drainage pipes, swimming in shit is just a hobby.

The Powerpuff girls added a new girl, and people are angry. South Park's new video game darkens your character's skin depending on the difficulty level you set, and people are upset. Toni Basil sues people for using the word M*ckey. Twin Peaks ends and people don't know what to think. All that and more on this week's THOUGHT COPS!

Thought Cops: Episode 30

September 5, 2017
00:0000:00

Sup ninjas, welcome to Episode 30 of Thought Cops! This week, we venture deep into the Konoha District of Neo Chicago to witness the local shinobi take part in what's known as "Naruto Run Around Trump Tower." No, I'm not kidding.

We used this opportunity to go to what I might have mistakenly called in this episode "the most intelligent protest I've ever witnessed," with the intention of asking questions on video for a remote segment. Video is hopefully coming soon. Anyway, here are some pictures from the "protest."

The night was filled with cries of "Not my Hokage," "Donald Trump hates anime," and "Free Anthony," the latter of which was an ode to the Karate Kid who got arrested to running in the street like a goddamn goobus. #freeanthony

Again, we have video of all of this so wait about a week or so for it to come out.

The Naruto Run Around Trump Tower seemed to overshadow the fact that we hit over 1000 downloads this episode. Thanks for listening.

But this week, we also had a whole host of other things to get into. Joel Osteen, man of money, believer in the Federal Reserve, doucher of bags, is waist-deep in shit this week for not letting people waist-deep in flood water come into his GIANT BASKETBALL STADIUM. Is the internet outrage on the show this time finally justified? What do I look like, a cop???

There's also a whirlwind of controversy spiraling around Ann Coulter for making a joke about the hurricane happening because of Houston's lesbian mayor. Here's a picture of her:

[caption id="attachment_466" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Wikimedia[/caption]

I can't say I'm fully convinced. Perhaps Ann meant a previous mayor, but what do I look like, a librarian?

Rounding out the hurricane trifecta, we have the "this is how it ought to be, despite what your gender studies professor says" meme, hot off the press. To be honest though, I'm too tired to explain it, so just read this mic.com article on it. They need the hits.

In other news, the VMAs happened but I didn't watch them. Sargon of Akkad was banned from Twitter but I don't know who that is. A censorship-free alternative to Youtube called "Pewtube" goes viral for censoring videos on Communism, but nobody's heard of it before. And an all female reboot of Lord of the Flies is happening in Hollywood, but I didn't read that book because I broke my glasses. If you don't understand that joke, you haven't read Lord of the Flies. Go read it, you filthy fucking uncultured swine. And don't leave without listening to this week's episode of THOUGHT COPS!!!

Thought Cops: Episode 29

August 29, 2017
00:0000:00

Opa. Welcome to Episode 29 of Thought Cops. Deputy Robbie of the Dirty Nines joins us in the race to 1000 downloads this week, as we cover net neutrality, the resurrection of Civil War general and sportscaster Robert Lee, Alex Jones gets attacked by a globalist, Joss Whedon and James Cameron's exclusive hot takes on feminism, and MTV's out of this world take on gender non-conformity.

First, we talk about the Kleins of H3H3 and their historic, landmark case in the fight for fair use of media against a man who's the physical embodiment of Gumby. Here's a video of them talking about it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eN0CIyF2ok

Also, Amy Schumer demanded Netflix pay her more money because of how much Chappelle and Chris Rock got paid, but also she didn't. So I don't know how to make sense of that.

This week, ESPN banned Robert Lee from announcing a sports game in Virginia. Uh oh, hot dog. Make sure the next time you go into Starbucks that you tell your barista that your name is Hashtag Robert Lee.

I hope that's how you spell "Hashtag Robert Lee."

Speaking of coffee, a few weeks ago Alex Jones had hot coffee thrown in his face by a paid actor. Speaking of actors, a quick retraction of a thing I mentioned in this week's episode, the guy who got stabbed for having a "nazi haircut" actually just stabbed himself. Go fuck yourself, guy. You can't pull one over on the Thought Cops.

Joss Whedon's fan site "Whedonesque" shut down this week, after his ex-wife called him a "fake feminist." He's also a fake greek god.

Gross.

Here's Bill O'Reilly visiting Chinatown.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJmnLzw8NA4

Whatever happened to that guy?

Here's a picture of Lance Bass, one of MTV's newest Moon People.

[caption id="attachment_455" align="aligncenter" width="200"]Wikimedia[/caption]

James Cameron said some stuff about Wonder Woman, but I forgot what. Anyway, here's the Titanic review Red Letter Media did that I mentioned during the episode.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHiceVim9Wg

Finally, here's the Titanic song we referenced in the episode that was featured numerous times on the defunct podcast "The Biggest Problem in the Universe."

Thought Cops: Episode 28

August 21, 2017
00:0000:00

Hold onto your medium sized waffle cones, because you're listening to episode 28 of Thought Cops! This week we're joined once again by Deputy Russell from the Cyberpunk Hallel District of L.A., formerly of the Antebellum District of Mississippi. He's on this week as a representative of the entirety of the south, so get out your pitchforks and tiki torches. Just kidding. The conversation we have about growing up in the south, living in a present that's not too far removed from the history most of us only seem to read about, and breaking down a lot of presuppositions about the culture and what's really fueling the seemingly sudden rise of white supremacy in the country, is probably the most interesting content we've had to date. So make sure not to miss this one.

Here's the clip of the movie "Whore" I referenced in the episode:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xc1l-nPMfM

See, it does exist, you fucks.

Here's the tweet sent out by Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, proving he's not racist by showing us that he has black friends.

When asked about this bizarre tweet in an interview, he had this to say:

https://youtu.be/pfvCqajATd0?t=10s

We also talk about Pewdiepie distancing himself from Neo-Nazis by refusing to make anymore Nazi jokes, and Macklemore distancing himself from white supremacists by... getting a haircut. He went from looking like a Hitler Youth, to a skinhead. Oops. There's no pleasing some people I guess.

Feel free to drop us a comment, send us a tweet, follow us on Facebook, or leave us a review on iTunes.

Thought Cops: Episode 27

August 15, 2017
00:0000:00

Lube up your gloves, because it's another episode of Thought Cops! This week, we're once again joined by Deputy Ron of Big Sword Panel, to talk about reclaiming swastikas, fake Twitter conversations, curvy wives, fisting the New York Times, red-pilled grandpas, and manifestos.

KA Designs came under fire this week for trying to make the swastika cool again. Needless to say, it didn't happen. You can read some fake news on it here.

Then again, what news can you trust anymore? None of it, apparently. That's the lesson we're supposed to learn on Twitter this week, because as sexual assault allegations fly around the gaming community, one brave Twitter user took it into her hands to show you can't trust everything you see, by making a fake DM conversation, and ruining someone's reputation in the process just in case. You can't make an omelette without doxxing a few eggs, right?

Its hard not to be cynical in this day and age, with so much rampant negativity in the news. Right? Wrong! One Instagram user took it into his own hands to show that true love exists in all shapes and sizes, namely, the shape and size of his big, curvy wife. He loves her no matter what. And he goes to great lengths to prove this to as many people as he can, as many times as he can, and no amount of publicity is going to stop him! Here's some more fake news on it.

Oh yeah, fisting. The New York Times may soon be experiencing that unique feeling of a middle-aged conservative woman's fist in their ass, if the threat is meant to be read literally. Cause it sure as hell sounds like it. I hope you took your red pills this morning because this one's gonna hurt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGa-GoILV9Y

And despite anything that exiled google employee James Damore has to say about women, one fictional woman just shattered the glass ceiling- all the way into outer space! And that's why this week, Harry Potter- I mean, Princess Leia from Star Wars gets the key to the city!

Never trust your fists, only the Thought Cops can help you.
