Gregs Song Lyrics
It’s on TV; cell phones mutate your sperm.
Naturopaths know; cancer is caused by a worm.
They have the proof; sweet and low rots your brain.
Papers all print; gators swim round the drain.
I believe every plot that you eschew.
Thats what I believe;
Thats what I believe and you should too!

Preachers do preach; earths six thousand years old.
Fruit and flagella; are divinely controlled.
Life’s too complex; Darwin got it all wrong.
Science Expelled; those who knew it all along.
I believe fossils are the devils clue.
Thats what I believe;
Thats what I believe and you should too!

Teacher says I; dont need punctuation,
Differentiation; above my station.
The boss has me; sweep and wax the floors
We dont need no; fancy grammar no more.
I believe Ill cliff Taming Of The Shrew.
Thats what I believe;
Thats what I believe and you should too

From sea to shining sea, across the plains, fruited.
In America you have the right, to be stupid.
Sit around the house, though your belts busting.
Don’t ask out the redhead, for whom you are lusting.
Ignore your asthma; go adopt a dog.
Move to Texas; don’t do football or god
Broadcast a podcast, another in the din.
Put down that guitar; pick the mandolin…
  (Solo)
In America I have the right, to be stupid.

I think Ill put; down that metaphor.
What am I singing; this stupid song for
You can believe; and I can be a fool.
But our beliefs; should not rule the school.
I believe reality is a virtue.
Thats what I believe; Thats what I believe;
Thats what I believe and you should too!

Garys Song Lyrics
In America you have the right to be stupid
You have the right to be embarrassed for the things you may have said
In America you can pay too much for coffee
Fill the gap with sweet'n'low rot your teeth right in your head
Not every coincidence has a lesson
Not every rainbow has a pot of gold

In America you can talk like Christopher Walken
And your punctuation differentiation keeps your family from being food
Let's eat Grandma, Let's eat, Grandma
The Donner party should have paid more attention back in school
Not every salad needs a dressing
But before you beat a dead horse again you should put down that metaphor

Dumb dumb dumb dumb
In America you have the right to be stupid

In America you have the right to be stupid
You have the right to air your grievances with what other people do
In America you have the right to be complacent
You can sit at home, complain and moan, let life come to you
Not every blinking light is a UFO
Not every crime hides a conspiracy

Dumb dumb dumb dumb
In America you have the right to be stupid

The bottom picture is a ground fault, where the hot wire shorts to the ground. Sadly through the poor stick figure, who apparently is too shocked to change expression.

Episode 115 Tries To Fix Some Moon-Sized Mistakes (A Week In Advance)

Yes, dear listener, this is episode 115. Don't worry, we'll get episode 114 out to you next week. There's a special guest on that episode and we had some technical difficulties with the audio files.

On the bright side, because of some scheduling conflicts that would prevent us from recording next week (June 19th) your intrepid hosts just to happened to have pre-recored the episode for June 19th on the same night (June 12th) . So rather than leave you dear listeners with no Skeptic Wire entertainment this weekend, we're going to release the second episode (number 115) this week and we'll get the original episode we meant to post this week (number 114) to you next Friday. Cheers!

00:00 Mea Culpa
02:10 Credits, Intro, How Was Your Week
05:03 Skeptical Birthday (SPOILER)
11:42 SUPERMOON
21:31 Organizations And Controversies
56:24 Our Facebook Oops
58:53 Lightning Round
66:49 Closing

The dogs are recording their own episode this week via Sk-yipe-yipe-yipe
