What Kind of Name is Clovis (AKA CoS) Season 2, Episode 8: Video Game Mania (November 30 2008)

A discussion of video games quickly engulfs the hosts in a real live gameroom: five levels of head-spinning chicanery, with a horrific boss to best at the end of each. Follow along as we navigate these mind-bending, badeffect-rich levels, and here’s a little nugget of who we confront in each level and how they help us get the girls (note: there are no clues here, unless you count up-down-up-down-left-right-left-right-B-A-start):

  1. An old woman who teaches us about “protection” when “engaging” with “creatures”
  2. A famous cleric who offers wisdom on Satan and getting arrested
  3. The king of the flammable jungle leads us to diamonds in the treetops for getting chicks
  4. The sexiest biggest fattest nerd alive at a snooty cocktail party in Detroit
  5. Bobby’s girlfriend and an ape not on a skateboard

A box full of zippos and a radio show.
