This is the last episode of the ill-conceived fourth season, perhaps of The Worst Idea of All Time itself. Special guest Paul F. Tompkins joins the fellaz in front of a live Los Angeles audience to reaffirm his instruction that Guy and Tim never do any more of this project. The trio wax philosophical on the nature of suffering for art and enjoyment, in intimacy of men’s feet touching and of course, what it means to colour outside the lines. Who’s to say what’s next for the fellaz. One thing is for sure, it’s been a terrible, terrible ride.

GuyGuy is back and Timbo is back and they're not happy to be back because WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS is also back. Our podcast hosts are crest-fallen and truly clutching at straws now. Gone are the carefree days of Adam Sandler and Shaq. Wistful, are the memories of Carrie and the gals. But alas, this film has no Coffee Guy. OR DOES IT?! After an extended metaphor about the washed out party this podcast adventure has become, Timbly decides WAYF is actually about dads and Guybo share personal stories of poo and strip clubs.

What happens when you take a human billboard and plop him inside a Christmas movie where Santa goes to jail, a 16-year-old runs away from home and ad exec John R. Cherry III just wants to get paid? The opening is a Coke ad, the man is potentially a coke addict and all I can think about is a certain coke plot at a certain airport by a certain other Tim. This movie is warm piss. Not overly offensive but nobody’s asking for it. Enjoy our third edition of the Christmas Treehouse Festival of Shit.

Hard Ticket is the pinnacle of 80s cinema. That is assessment of your frosty fellas. This movie stars four Playboy bunnies, one bazooka, a soap opera icon, and a snake infected by cancer-ridden rats. Truly, it has it all. The film doesn't make a whole lot of sense and it that's okay. The characters talk about 'doobies', it's got a badass 80s soundtrack and a man inextricably rides a skateboard while doing a hand stand. Why it missed an Oscar nod, we shall never understand. 10/10
