We choose the form of our destructor, this week on Horsetrack Hooligans.



Updates & Corrections

The RPG game about kids in the 80s is “Tales From The Loop”.

The pre-apocalyptic detective novels Axhandle read was “The Last Policeman” not “The Last Detective”.

The movie where the sun melts the earth is probably “The Day The Earth Caught Fire”.

The animated short where a guy wakes up on a grey plane is “50% Grey”.

Mogyu!  Crunky!  Creme Collon!

It’s a roll call of the best and brightest in Japanese candy!

Join Jennifer “Freckles Zweiback” Froese and the chaps as they taste test a number of japanese snacks while discussing the merits of onion based therapy and play a new episode of Buzzer Beaters.

We place a cut onion under our desks, this week on Horsetrack Hooligans.



Updates & Corrections

Crunky is a chocolate candy from South Korea, not Japan.

Whatchamacallit was first introduced in 1978 but advertising for the chocolate bar peaked in the 80s.

In Canada, an identical candy bar is marketed by Hershey’s as Special Crisp.

The tie Colonel Sanders wears is a string bowtie but is also known as a western bow tie or Kentucky bow tie.
