Enemy of the State (1998) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi! and Welcome to  my cage of  90s era tech gear or as I like to call it “the Jar.” that’s right….”the jar..” why do I call it “the jar?” because it protects me from being bugged…however, a jar doesn’t actually do that now does it.

No I call it “the jar” because sometimes I like to pee in it.

oh… don’t sit there… or there…and don’t turn on that monitor…there may be porn. I forget.

Yeah…I’m a dirty old man in a jar. Would you like to see naked pictures of Lisa Bonet? oh…in that case, do you have any?

Dirty old man in a jar. Man-O-Jar. Jar-O-Man. jar…gross.
