Ep. 20 | (S02E05) Dental Hygienists On Call

The Questionauts “make a roaring return” in “top form,” according to Nobody In Particular. In this much belated episode, Justin and Aaron tackle the questions nobody else is asking (except the brave souls who asked the questions of course):

  • Why are books made of paper?
  • In a root beer float, why does the ice cream make the root beer foam so much? And is there anything I can do to reduce the foam?
  • What are some rhyming words that you wouldn’t expect to rhyme?

    Ep. 17 | (S02E02) The Grand Debate

    Our Question coffers are running dry so SEND US SOME NEW ONES! Without a lot of listener queries and quandries to quell, we were quorced… sorry, Forced, to get creative… sorry, Qureative. What’s with my typing today, jeesh?

    Justin and Aaron dug into the archives to feature questions without an easy answer, questions on which these two answerologists disagree. The resulting debates were emotionally draining and exhausting, but in the end, worthwhile and hopefully edifying to the listening audience. Hot Button Topics addressed include:

  • Why do some people have long pinky fingernails?
  • Microwaving food: How safe is it?
  • Did oil really come from dinosaurs?
  • The word “sinister” was once associated with left-handedness. Are lefties more sinister?
  • Send us some more questions, or we’ll have to debate again next episode.

    Ep. 16 | (S02E01) I love LOST!

    The Defenders of Answer Justice are back from a much-deserved hiatus with an episode that might very well knock your socks off, depending on the tensile strength of said socks. But extensive testing revealed that socks in the 83rd percentile and above were knockable using this episode, so look out, is all we’re saying. Wear shoes, go barefoot, but you’ve been warned if you decide to flaunt your sockful lifestyle while listening to the following questions being answered:

  • Is it true that your ears and nose never stop growing? And if so, why?!
  • Why do Americans have so much trouble pronouncing “Vincent Van Gogh,” and did losing his ear help the artist become a better painter?
  • What are the Questionauts’ New Years resolutions?
  • Did all the countries Brian Snyder travels to get together and decide to annoy him by using different power adapters?

    EP. 15 | SPECIAL EPISODE: Chick Masters Out of Context

    A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the holidays and the general craziness of the next month, the Questionauts are going on a hiatus for a few weeks. We’ll try and get new episodes up in January.

    For now, though… Enjoy this bit of archived comedy from Justin and Aaron. A “Chick Masters” episode in which Dr. Neil defends his reputation after some troubling anti-semetic material leaks out onto the blogosphere, followed by Chick Masters’ own less defensible defense of his own troubling tape.

    Thanks to all of you for continuing to enjoy the podcast! Happy holidays to you, and we look forward to more fun in 2012!
