[00:00:38] CHELSEY DONN: Hello,

[00:00:40] TREY GERRALD: Well hello and welcome to Review That Review. We are the podcast that is dedicated to reviewing.

[00:00:49] CHELSEY DONN: Reviews!

[00:00:52] TREY GERRALD: That's Chelsey

[00:00:53] CHELSEY DONN: And that's Trey Gerrald.

[00:00:54] TREY GERRALD: But you can call us.

[00:00:56] VOICEOVER: The Review Queens,

[00:01:00] TREY GERRALD: And while you're calling us that, Chelsey, I'm gonna give you the stage. Is there anything that you would like to

[00:01:05] VOICEOVER: Lodge a complaint,

[00:01:06] TREY GERRALD: about this fine week in March?

[00:01:09] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, Trey, I've been waiting all week for this complaint.

[00:01:12] TREY GERRALD: Well quit stalling, tell us.

[00:01:14] CHELSEY DONN: So, guys, we got another real time complaint happening, 

[00:01:17] TREY GERRALD: No. 

[00:01:18] CHELSEY DONN: Uh huh. My kitchen sink is not functioning.

[00:01:23] TREY GERRALD: Really?

[00:01:24] CHELSEY DONN: Has not been functioning for six days.

[00:01:26] TREY GERRALD: Wait, what does that mean?

[00:01:28] CHELSEY DONN: There was a clog that occurred. We thought it was a disposal issue. That, I honestly don't know what it is, but basically, the disposal is now, like, leaking heavily into like a bucket whenever the sink is on.

[00:01:44] So the sink cannot be on and the dishwasher uses that same sink line. So that also cannot be used. So for almost a week, I've had no use. of a kitchen sink, a dishwasher, a disposal, anything that has to do with the kitchen sink arena. At first, when I was like blown this, this news, I was like, it's gonna be okay.

[00:02:08] Like I was thinking, no, it's not okay. You can't do anything in the kitchen in terms of cooking if you don't have a kitchen sink. I was like, oh, I'll make a salad. I can't rinse the lettuce. I can't clean a dish. I can't use a cutting board or a knife because there's no way to wash it. I've been ordering takeout all week, and I'm even more mad because I went to the grocery store right before this happened, and I bought all these groceries that I'm now gonna have to throw away.

[00:02:36] TREY GERRALD: no.

[00:02:37] CHELSEY DONN: I wasn't able to do any of the meal prep that I wanted and I'm just like, I'm frickin livid and we just keep getting into these situations where my landlord is like, Oh, okay, well, the plumber's gonna come today and it's like, okay, awesome, great, people keep canceling, people keep changing, like, oh, no, I can't do this or whatever it is, so we're supposed to have another plumber come today, he's over an hour late.

[00:03:01] As of this recording, I now have my roommate on the job of, like, letting him in, because I'm like, I'm recording the podcast, like, this is, like, ridiculous, I'm not gonna sit around all day waiting for this plumber to possibly show up, and now just before we started recording, my roommate texted me, and he was like, actually, he might be coming tomorrow, what the F, I am so over this, I can't, I I know that, like, it's a first world problem in some, to some degree, but also, no, like, a lot of things depend on this, like, my health, it's not healthy for me to be getting takeout for every single meal, nor is it fiscally responsible, so, I'm pissed, I'm pissed,

[00:03:41] TREY GERRALD: I hear you, and I'm proud of you for acknowledging that it's not healthy to get takeout every meal, that's something I have not learned yet.

[00:03:49] CHELSEY DONN: oh, god, I'm so mad, 

[00:03:51] TREY GERRALD: mean, it is, 

[00:03:52] CHELSEY DONN: but still, like, you know, wash your hands before you eat, like, just, like, things that you would want to do that you wouldn't even think about, necessarily, but, like, there's nothing that I can do in my kitchen, At 

[00:04:03] TREY GERRALD: I was gonna, I was gonna say, like, one of the mainstay features of any living situation is the kitchen sink.

[00:04:10] So much activity happens around the kitchen sink.

[00:04:13] CHELSEY DONN: even drinking water. We can't drink water from the sink because even if we found out the hard way, for whatever reason, I guess because it's coming through the pipes, if you turn the sink on and you like have a glass right under there just to catch the water and then you turn it off immediately as in no water goes into the sink, it still leaks.

[00:04:32] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, something's really wrong there.

[00:04:34] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, it's a big problem. And also he has to come today because we're like getting horrible weather advisories starting on through Sunday through like Tuesday or something like that. So if he does not come today, we were going to be screwed into next week. And I'm just I don't know how much I can handle.

[00:04:51] But still, here we are.

[00:04:52] TREY GERRALD: And you have a garbage disposal in

[00:04:55] your kitchen sink. So, right, so we actually don't have a garbage disposal.

[00:05:00] CHELSEY DONN: Really? That's sort of surprising to me.

[00:05:02] TREY GERRALD: And I also feel like in New York City, there's a lot that are not

[00:05:05] CHELSEY DONN: I think in New York City, for whatever reason, you Yeah, you can't have them. Right. 

[00:05:09] TREY GERRALD: So I'm just used to not having them. But right, well, that's what I was going to say is I feel like it's a bigger issue when it's the garbage disposal,

[00:05:16] which is actually spelled dispose all, but I say disposal.

[00:05:20] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, disposal.

[00:05:22] TREY GERRALD: Have you ever looked at the lyrics of Somewhere That's Green from Little Shop of Horrors? A dispose all in the sink.

[00:05:29] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, 

[00:05:30] TREY GERRALD: That's how I know how to spell it. Well, anyway, I hear the complaint. That is very frustrating.

[00:05:35] It is a major hub, and I'm hoping that by the time this episode is finished, the plumber will have come and gone and fixed it.

[00:05:42] We're not, we're not doing tomorrow. That's

[00:05:44] CHELSEY DONN: We're not, we can't do tomorrow. It's supposed to be torrential downpour tomorrow. Let's get on this. Ay yay yay. Whoo. I mean, honestly,

[00:05:56] TREY GERRALD: Eggshell. And then, let's go ahead and jump into an online review. Are you ready?

[00:06:00] CHELSEY DONN: oh, I'm so ready, Trey. This is literally the highlight of my week, clearly.

[00:06:04] TREY GERRALD: Alright, let's leap.

[00:06:07] VOICEOVER: Review That Review,

[00:06:11] CHELSEY DONN: As you know, we are your trusty Review Queens. We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

[00:06:18] TREY GERRALD: We read you the review, break it down, and rate the impact of that review on a scale from 0 to 5 crowns. It's a very regal process that we call

[00:06:26] VOICEOVER: Assess That Kvetch,

[00:06:28] CHELSEY DONN: That's right, Trey, and it is your turn this week, dying to know what you've brought in for us.

[00:06:33] TREY GERRALD: Alright, well today, I'm gonna muster my way through this,

[00:06:38] because I have a review that I've been scared to bring in, and you're gonna soon know why.

[00:06:44] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, no. Okay.

[00:06:45] TREY GERRALD: today we're going to be rating and reviewing a one star Amazon review for a wrinkle free blazer.

[00:06:54] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. Seems benign. 

[00:06:56] TREY GERRALD: this was written by Amazon customer.

[00:06:59] CHELSEY DONN: good old.

[00:07:00] TREY GERRALD: This is a verified purchase.

[00:07:02] The subject of Amazon customer's review is recurrent clicking noise has manifested itself in conjunction with an observed lack. of efficiency.

[00:07:15] CHELSEY DONN: Hmm.

[00:07:18] TREY GERRALD: Yes. So this review was written on May 22nd of 2023, and the color is blue. Here we go. According to the scrutiny of extant appraisals, It appears that an auditory clicking manifestation may evince a faulty output, inasmuch as the evidentiary underpinnings of this supposition remain in doubt, it can only be deemed as a mere conjecture, pursuant to my enterprise, Trey I endeavored to expunge the creases embedded in a blazer through the implementation of a steam contrivance.

[00:08:05] CHELSEY DONN: Hmm. Hmm.

[00:08:10] TREY GERRALD: Ow, ow, that hurt really bad. Ow, that hurt my nose. I've never laughed like that before. Okay. Oh God, that hurt my nasal.

[00:08:18] Okay. Regrettably, The prototype failed to realize its propitious Avowals, although it did, ostensibly. ameliorate some of the wrinkles. A thorough inspection reveals that this enlisted duty is beyond the scope of envisaged competence of the productivity. Henceforth,

[00:08:47] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god.

[00:08:49] TREY GERRALD: it is

[00:08:50] palpably evident that pressing the blazer is still mandatory. Accordingly, it becomes indisputably manifest that this product is bereft of any utility. It would be of great appreciation if you could kindly peruse the accompanying. Peruse the accompanying, Peruse the accompanying, Accompanying, Accompanying? Peruse the accompanying, Peruse the accompanying, What? Accompanying, Accompanying, Peruse the accompanying, Photographs, for reference.

[00:09:41] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, I might need you to text this to me because 

[00:09:43] TREY GERRALD: I'm in. This has, um, 

[00:09:45] CHELSEY DONN: god, 

[00:09:46] TREY GERRALD: two helpful votes.

[00:09:48] CHELSEY DONN: Helpful? Helpful with what? The SATs? I mean, like, what the hell?

[00:09:55] TREY GERRALD: And there are, you'll notice when I send you the screenshot, there are spellings that allude to the fact that this is probably a British person,

[00:10:03] but you'll notice that the color they ordered is blue, but the photos are khaki.

[00:10:08] CHELSEY DONN: I think that I have a very good vocabulary, it's something that I praise myself on, and it's feedback that I get a lot. Do I say I always use them correctly? No, but I do dapple outside of ordinary, linguistical usage, okay? 

[00:10:25] TREY GERRALD: So tell me what this means. Silence.

[00:10:30] CHELSEY DONN: the actual, okay, so what, just that it wrinkles, and it's gonna require beyond just a steam, like a firm pressing in order to get it to be not wrinkled,

[00:10:43] TREY GERRALD: Right.

[00:10:44] CHELSEY DONN: and then also that there's like the auditory clicking manifestation. Like, is it like the George Costanza episode? Did you watch Seinfeld? There's a Oh, shoot.

[00:10:56] Okay, so listeners, maybe you do. You probably do. So there's an episode of Seinfeld where George is like fighting to get this suit that's on sale, and he's like fighting this other guy to get it, and it's this whole thing, and then he finally gets the suit because it fits him perfectly, and then he realizes that it swooshes when he walks.

[00:11:16] TREY GERRALD: Ah,

[00:11:17] CHELSEY DONN: It's like a swooshing nightmare. So is that what they're saying? Like, that the auditory sound clicking manifestation may evince a faulty out? What the F does that mean?

[00:11:32] TREY GERRALD: I don't know what, what would be clicking.

[00:11:35] CHELSEY DONN: That's what I'm wondering. That's why I'm like, is this, do they mean swoosh, like a swoosh? Clicking

[00:11:41] TREY GERRALD: Well, events means reveal the presence of.

[00:11:45] CHELSEY DONN: Right? No, I get that, but I'm just saying what, what does it even mean if I, like, even if you do translate it?

[00:11:52] TREY GERRALD: I don't know. That's why I brought it here.

[00:11:56] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. All right. Let's try to break this down for our listeners in case. Okay. So according to the scrutiny of extant appraisal, so according to what many other reviewers are saying, it appears that a clicking sound manifest is coming from Faulty output from

[00:12:16] TREY GERRALD: like the bad product,

[00:12:17] CHELSEY DONN: bad product from like a Manufacturing error.

[00:12:21] Let's say okay in as much as the Evidentiary is this person a lawyer or they just trying to make us think they're a lawyer

[00:12:27] TREY GERRALD: mean, it harkens to that complaint I had a few weeks back.

[00:12:31] CHELSEY DONN: right in as much as the evidentiary underpinnings of this Supposition. Remain in doubt. Supposition. What's supp what's supposition mean?

[00:12:43] TREY GERRALD: Uh, well, supposition, uncertain belief,

[00:12:47] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, so in as much as the underpinnings of the supposition, as much as the reasoning for why this is happening is baffling, right? What'd you say? Uh, it could only be deemed as a mere conjunct Conjecture. Conjecture. 

[00:13:07] TREY GERRALD: your honor, 

[00:13:09] CHELSEY DONN: Conjecture, Your Honor. What 

[00:13:10] TREY GERRALD: conclusion or an opinion formed based on the basis of incomplete information.

[00:13:16] CHELSEY DONN: What does that 

[00:13:17] TREY GERRALD: So I think they're saying that even with what we've

[00:13:20] CHELSEY DONN: Even with the evidentiary support and the readings.

[00:13:24] TREY GERRALD: be an unfound, unsolid conclusion,

[00:13:27] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, so it's like going into this, I was willing to be like, maybe this isn't true. 

[00:13:32] TREY GERRALD: right, so then, 

[00:13:34] CHELSEY DONN: to my enterprise, so then, then I bought it. So from my own personal experience, I wanted to expunge, I wanted to 

[00:13:44] TREY GERRALD: big sponge, yeah, the creases,

[00:13:47] CHELSEY DONN: the creases, I wanted to iron the creases. We're embedded in a blazer through the implementation of a steam, of a 

[00:13:57] TREY GERRALD: So they 

[00:13:57] CHELSEY DONN: of a 

[00:13:58] TREY GERRALD: or they steamed it, yeah.

[00:13:59] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, I wanted to get the wrinkles out with the seamer. Regrettably, the prototype failed to realize its piteous avowal, propitious avowals, 

[00:14:14] TREY GERRALD: So a vowels is assert or confess openly and propitious, giving or indicating good chance of success.

[00:14:25] CHELSEY DONN: so, 

[00:14:26] TREY GERRALD: so, it's just saying it didn't work 

[00:14:28] CHELSEY DONN: it didn't work

[00:14:29] TREY GERRALD: the steamer

[00:14:30] CHELSEY DONN: with the seamer, although it did ostensibly ameliorate some, although it did get rid of some of the 

[00:14:36] TREY GERRALD: Which is literally, make better. That's how, that's what that word means.

[00:14:40] CHELSEY DONN: Right. A thorough inspection reveals that the enlisted duty is beyond the scope of envisaged competence of the productivity. What?

[00:14:53] TREY GERRALD: That, it got some of them out, but not all of it.

[00:14:56] CHELSEY DONN: Right? I'm like, there's so many words here. I'm like, 

[00:14:58] TREY GERRALD: You're right, cause the next sentence, it's evident that pressing is still mandatory. So you can't use a steamer, you have to use

[00:15:05] CHELSEY DONN: have to press it. Right, which is okay. Accordingly, it becomes indisputably manifest. That this product is bereft of any utility. So it becomes clear that this is a useless product. It would be of great appreciation if you could kindly peruse the accompanying photographs for reference. Look at the photographs for 

[00:15:26] TREY GERRALD: It doesn't look that wrinkled to

[00:15:27] CHELSEY DONN: F. U. Amazon customer.

[00:15:30] TREY GERRALD: Why?

[00:15:32] CHELSEY DONN: This is so obnoxious.

[00:15:34] TREY GERRALD: You're

[00:15:34] just now feeling that? You just 

[00:15:36] CHELSEY DONN: No, I felt the whole way, but I wanted to like, look at it to be like, is there something that I'm missing or like, I don't know, like I was like, is, I just wanted to see it, because I was so confused, I started just writing down words that I wasn't sure I needed permission to, and now looking at it, it just feels like, if this is a joke, it's so missing the mark, this is not in the lane of review jokes, using Language like this, like this is going to be an immediate skip pass.

[00:16:05] I'm going to read like first, I'm going to read the subject of the review and then be like, I'm outtie. Like this is not an appropriate forum for whatever this is. It's, I have a headache enough, like we were saying a couple weeks ago, trying to understand the legalese of a contract. I don't need to do that when I'm trying to buy a blazer.

[00:16:26] TREY GERRALD: I am.

[00:16:27] CHELSEY DONN: Ridiculous.

[00:16:28] TREY GERRALD: And the pictures look almost like they're Google Images, cause look at the background, like it's as if they've, there's no background,

[00:16:38] CHELSEY DONN: Well, I mean, they removed the background. That doesn't bother me so much. What bothers me is that you're going to great lengths to write a review like this, and then the color's wrong, color blue. You're so thorough with your language, you couldn't even select the right color.

[00:16:55] TREY GERRALD: you know what's occurring to me, it's so verbose for just saying you can't get wrinkles out with a steamer,

[00:17:01] how do we know that's not the fault of the steamer that they used?

[00:17:05] CHELSEY DONN: we don't know, but like, we really don't know anything. And this review is from the United States. I don't, I don't know why you thought it was British, 

[00:17:14] TREY GERRALD: Well, the way they spelled Endeavored with the O U,

[00:17:17] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, but that's just because they're a pompous a hole. Like, this person just really bothers me. They didn't self identify and then they came up with this pompous review that literally is a waste of anyone's time that comes through it. They're gonna get a headache by just trying to read it.

[00:17:35] TREY GERRALD: Are you really this angry or is this about the sink? In

[00:17:45] CHELSEY DONN: why? Because it, like, reminds me of when I was in school and I would be reading, like, Ulysses or The Canterbury Tales or Beowulf or, you know, a book like that where I'm like, F, like, I need to read this over and over and over and over again to understand what it's saying and, you know, I will do that for classical literature.

[00:18:06] I will not do that For an Amazon review written by Amazon customer. If you're going to tell me that this review was written by Tolstoy, then maybe I will take an extra second to read it, but it's written by Amazon customer. They didn't even self identify.

[00:18:21] TREY GERRALD: So, all right. So then a lot of new and unique words. I wouldn't say it's a lot of info. All you're

[00:18:29] saying for a lot of vocabulary words is that it's hard to get their wrinkles out.

[00:18:34] And this is a self proclaimed wrinkle free product.

[00:18:37] CHELSEY DONN: This could have been a zinger.

[00:18:39] TREY GERRALD: Could have been a zinger

[00:18:40] CHELSEY DONN: This whole review could have been a zinger.

[00:18:42] TREY GERRALD: there were other reviews that are literally like it is a common complaint

[00:18:46] that it wrinkles But people literally just say

[00:18:49] CHELSEY DONN: Like, literally could have been like, Holy Wrinkles, Batman, and like, that would have been like, gotten the whole 

[00:18:54] TREY GERRALD: Dun duh dun dun duh, Literally.

[00:18:56] CHELSEY DONN: Exactly!

[00:18:57] TREY GERRALD: So, spelling grammar, they do spell Endeavored, it shows up, because ok, full disclosure, I had to copy paste this, put it in the notes section, and I had to do

[00:19:06] CHELSEY DONN: Full research?

[00:19:07] TREY GERRALD: that I could like, hear how the words were pronounced. I thought I would have to stop a lot more than I actually did,

[00:19:13] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god, Trey. Yes.

[00:19:15] TREY GERRALD: they, you know, so Endeavored shows up as a typo, also Realized shows up as a typo, because they spell it with an S,

[00:19:22] CHELSEY DONN: With an S, I saw that, yay.

[00:19:24] TREY GERRALD: but, I mean, even though it's out of place,

[00:19:28] do we give them high marks for their spelling and grammar? Or is it too

[00:19:31] CHELSEY DONN: I don't think so. I think it's way too showy. I mean, I feel like it's like, it's this weird confluence, is that the right word? Where it's like, we've, we've gone over the rainbow so far, that now we're failing. You know what I mean?

[00:19:45] TREY GERRALD: Do you feel like the word choice is shady?

[00:19:48] CHELSEY DONN: A little bit because it just feels like very pompous to the, I feel like it's shady to the reader. Like, who do you think you are 

[00:19:56] TREY GERRALD: For a fucking blazer.

[00:19:58] CHELSEY DONN: right, we're a blazer that you feel like you need to come on here and give everybody a vocab lesson. Like, no, thank you.

[00:20:05] TREY GERRALD: do we give them points for truthful because the images are wrinkly?

[00:20:09] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, 

[00:20:10] TREY GERRALD: does look like a, 

[00:20:10] CHELSEY DONN: a nod.

[00:20:12] TREY GERRALD: it looks like a blazer right out of the washing machine. That's what the wrinkles look like in the

[00:20:17] CHELSEY DONN: Right. And because we have evidentiary support from other reviews that show that this is the case, I do think it's truthful and I do think it's common.

[00:20:30] TREY GERRALD: and I appreciate that they include that commonality

[00:20:33] in their review because so often we have to compare with other outside reviews, but here it's in the text.

[00:20:39] CHELSEY DONN: I just shouldn't need a thesaurus.

[00:20:41] TREY GERRALD: I know, heard

[00:20:41] CHELSEY DONN: To read your review,

[00:20:43] TREY GERRALD: Were you entertained?

[00:20:45] CHELSEY DONN: I was entertained, like, watching you struggle to read through this, and it's definitely different than any other review, like, I'm obviously thrilled that you brought it in, because, like, we've never had anything like this before, I think it's an anomaly, I don't think it exists many other places on the internet where, other than maybe, like, Goodreads, but, like, I would accept this from Goodreads, 

[00:21:10] TREY GERRALD: Correct, I would too, right? Yeah.

[00:21:12] CHELSEY DONN: But in this forum, I don't think many people are going to Amazon, especially identifying as Amazon customer and writing something like this.

[00:21:20] My, my question is what this person was trying to be humorous, right?

[00:21:25] TREY GERRALD: That's what I'm thinking, um, I do think that.

[00:21:28] CHELSEY DONN: Because otherwise, why would you do this? Like,

[00:21:31] TREY GERRALD: speak like this normally, hear as much, henceforth,

[00:21:35] CHELSEY DONN: this written by ChatGBT? And they were like, please write an Amazon review about a wrinkly sweater that is like with the vocabulary of someone with a law degree. I don't know.

[00:21:47] TREY GERRALD: it has to be meant as humor, it has to.

[00:21:50] CHELSEY DONN: It has to be. But like, if the intent is humor, I think it's missing the mark.

[00:21:56] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, and sadly they didn't create an account so that we can't go and see if there's a history of this vocabulary, because it's Amazon customer, there's 8

[00:22:02] million Amazon customer reviews. I think I could crown AC, how do you feel?

[00:22:07] CHELSEY DONN: I think I could crown them. I could don them with a crowning.

[00:22:11] TREY GERRALD: Alright, let's do it. So, Chelsey and I each have our own set of 0 5 crown cards. In an effort to be fair and not influence each other, we will simultaneously reveal our rating.

[00:22:20] VOICEOVER: The Queens are tabulating,

[00:22:27] Time for school,

[00:22:28] CHELSEY DONN: What do I get? Okay. Interesting. I'm holding up a half crown, Trey's holding up two crowns. Very curious to hear where those two crowns are coming from. I'll go first with a half crown. Only because this is unusual and I've not seen it before, That's why I'm going with the half crown, But I don't think a lot of people are gonna spend the time reading this review.

[00:22:48] I kind of think it's a dud. I think if somebody started reading this they would just be like, oh, I have a headache, moving on, I'm gonna look at the other reviews. So I don't think it stands alone very well as a review. I can only give points for this being a little bit different and unique from the typical review.

[00:23:06] Other than that, I can't really give any credit to Amazon customer because I just think that they said a whole bunch and they also said nothing in doing so. So half crown for me, why two crowns, Trey?

[00:23:19] TREY GERRALD: Well, I went with two because I appreciated the photos, as I always do, and I did find it to be an anomaly and interesting. As you point out often, There's personality here because it's like you're in the review section you just sort of see the same sort of thing so

[00:23:35] a little more merit because it's different but like I also don't know if maybe they just have a faulty steamer I'm personally someone who never goes for a steamer and I have a like a commercial grade steamer went from when I worked at Joann Fabric I still will use an iron but I didn't buy the blazer so the impact

[00:23:54] was there for me so yeah two two crowns for me.

[00:23:57] you

[00:23:57] CHELSEY DONN: I got that. That's fair. Wow, Trey. Interesting review. Very interesting review.

[00:24:02] TREY GERRALD: Why don't we sail on from that steamy, steamy ship?

[00:24:07] And Chelsey, we've reached the most regal portion of our show. Who are you inducting today for?

[00:24:13] VOICEOVER: My Royal Highness,

[00:24:15] CHELSEY DONN: Thank you for asking, Trey. So clearly we've exhibited throughout this episode that I'm feeling a little bit steamy as of late, a little heated. If you will. And so I was on Instagram before we started recording this and I came across this video that just like really made me laugh out loud and I just was like, I have to give credit to funny Instagram videos and funny reels that can just take you out of wherever you are and just put you into this new place where you're laughing and just enjoying what you're doing.

[00:24:51] Being entertained by something that somebody decided to post. I mean, it's just amazing when you're just scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, you're kind of like doom scrolling or you're just like bored. And then all of a sudden you're like, Oh, my God, this is so funny. And then you're laughing and your entire mood has changed.

[00:25:05] So to all the people that have been posting videos that make me laugh, Thank you so much. Sometimes you really do need those moments in life. I really needed that moment today. I had one right before I came on and I'm gonna send it to Trey during the after show so that he can watch it. But anyway, if you post funny videos, thank you so much for doing so.

[00:25:24] You are my Royal Highness.

[00:25:28] TREY GERRALD: Nice, I love that, I, obviously, my number one app on my phone is YouTube, so,

[00:25:35] after YouTube is Instagram, I love those comedy reels.

[00:25:38] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, so funny.

[00:25:40] TREY GERRALD: Well we did a queen, that is another round on the R U A R Q, cylindrical force of gravity spinner. Ferris Wheel of Love and Life.

[00:25:51] CHELSEY DONN: That's right. Thank you for joining us today. If you like what you heard, please tell a gregarious friend.

[00:26:01] TREY GERRALD: And if you did not like what you heard, Please tell your middle school English teacher.

[00:26:07] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god. On this week's After Show Pod, we are rating and reviewing a two star Yelp review for Donut Friend in Los Angeles, someplace that I frequent.

[00:26:20] TREY GERRALD: Is that the pink place? Pink donut shop?

[00:26:23] CHELSEY DONN: No, they're actually vegan donuts. They're in Highland Park. They're delicious.

[00:26:28] TREY GERRALD: Wow, I really cannot even begin to ponder, pontificate, why this was said. Oh, her tits! So she's stuck upside down, but she's wearing like a tube top dress, so she's stuck and her tits have fully popped out.

[00:26:51] CHELSEY DONN: How confounding.

[00:26:54] TREY GERRALD: Can't wait to hear that on Friday. Now,

[00:26:57] please remember,

[00:27:36] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, that was just so pompous. That 

[00:27:39] TREY GERRALD: Pompous, that's the right word.

[00:27:42] CHELSEY DONN: right?

[00:27:42] TREY GERRALD: The pompacity

[00:27:44] CHELSEY DONN: The pomposity of that review doth protest too much.

[00:27:49] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, heard that. What's your favorite kind of donut?

[00:27:53] CHELSEY DONN: I really like a sort of standard vanilla icing with like sprinkles, like a child.

[00:28:01] TREY GERRALD: Yeah.

[00:28:03] CHELSEY DONN: What about you?

[00:28:04] TREY GERRALD: Is a normal glaze vanilla flavor? Just like a glazed donut?

[00:28:08] CHELSEY DONN: No, I feel like a glazed donut is just like a glazed donut with like sugar and stuff, but then they put, I like when they put like the little vanilla like frosting on top and then they have like the rainbow sprinkles.

[00:28:18] TREY GERRALD: Like, where it's stuffed in the center? Or still with a donut

[00:28:21] CHELSEY DONN: Now. There's still a donut hole, but like it's just like around, you know,

[00:28:25] TREY GERRALD: I'm thinking of Dunkin Donuts and they have like the jelly filled with

[00:28:29] like the little like whiter icing on top.

[00:28:32] CHELSEY DONN: powder or the, or the, there's two kinds of jelly donuts at Dunkin, there's the powder and then there's the sugar, are you a jelly donut kind of guy?

[00:28:41] TREY GERRALD: No, abso fucking lutely not.

[00:28:43] I don't want anything coming out of that. Let's hop over.

[00:28:48] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, let's 

[00:28:48] TREY GERRALD: we're gonna pick up on this on Friday. We have a lot of

[00:28:50] thoughts about donuts, apparently.

[00:28:52] CHELSEY DONN: we do, see you Friday,

[00:28:54] TREY GERRALD: not subscribe.

[00:28:59] CHELSEY DONN: Adios,
