monkeymilkof dragons and starships – Episode 81 – Milking the Monkey!

Angus has learned the hard way not to go fishing on Mars. The only fish available are carp which is Martian for crap. Paul returns from his hiatus with a hernia from lifting a lot of monsters to sell at the convention. Meanwhile he got to see boobs. CJ is tired of the Star Wars universe and its shameless milking of the monkey franchise. He’ll watch the next movies anyway…

But first let us take a selfie…
