It's the daily Talk Show Episode 135 happy fat Friday you gronk What's happening? What's going on? Sorry, I'm either gonna be happy or sad. So you've organised fat Fridays and yeah, I was pumped. I was excited like, Tommy's dropping off. That's awesome. And then you said I had to put it in the freezer. Well, I we need to redeem your say they'd like to say, if you haven't been following along with the fat Fridays, your flesh has been just he's been getting things that weren't really meant to be frozen definitely weren't meant to be frozen. Yeah, and they've been frozen and it's really set you off. I just like getting these in the freezer because I was because of the trauma that I have with frozen food, but I did and that so they sort of look like boldly title almost like a macro, macro run. That is not being
This one piece of a metronome is another way of describing is they look like small, colourful pebbles or they look like marshmallow balls like oh there goes when and when you touch them they feel like marshmallows or they feel like some kind of like rubber like some kind of soft rubber anyway so I
got it I got anyone yet because I really want a bang whitening I want you to review it and I wanted to get you to have the raw plywood to start with now I need to have you to have the right flavour. So I've got like yellow, pink, green, brown and white instead of a choco Yes, yes, yeah, I went to I went to Kohl's local ages ago when it first opened or sort of after it was the hype instead of really sit in and everyone was flocking their cars locals like the whole foods of Australia Victoria. Anyway, I got these random
It's nice. It's well, no calls. It's like big. Oh,
yeah, but it's different not only great I just feel like Whole Foods is like a whole nother thing. I don't know well, Whole Foods is a higher level but I feel like they've taken a real thought to this. They have a cafe area. A lot of ideas don't they have like specific brands of takeaway food that they've brought in? I've got like a bread slicer my day.
I haven't actually been to a Kohl's local shake on you, dude. So have you been sipping back that fucking oj I got Yeah, cuz I made that. I made that with a machine. I haven't good. I will. I need some vitamin safe. I feel like that's what I got it for you baby. Thank you. So I got a text message. Not a text message. Right. I get an instant message from a girl named Marie. And it just started with lm AR. So she's on the ground laughing right now.
My friends make a laughing
harass has fallen off if she was if she
ro FL ruffle ruffle rolling on the floor laughing That's right. Laughing her ass off. Yeah, so it's actually pretty serious. Someone should I should fucking go.
fucking get your assets rolling away. Anyway, you said that'd be killing my Oh, my friends make fun of me for driving all the way to rose Bay just for Maci and I youtubed Coles rose Bay hoping somebody made a video on it. I'm dying who even reviews Kohl's. That's amazing. Thanks. I actually needed it. And so I didn't review Kohl's rose by I reviewed Kohl's local in Hawthorne. Yeah. But they sell the same they sell mochi and that is what you have right in front of you. What's your Maki mochi? I think it might be Japanese. I think it might be What flavour my studying with. You need to start with a white one. I want to win you over with white okay. And and so run me through the texture, the feeling
You smell too tight either way. It's like
yeah, it is like a frozen marshmallow but it's sticky. It's like a frozen powder. And it's but it's a bowl. And it's it's annoying to hold.
Well, Mike map Yeah, go for it. No no I bought half of it you gronk that way you can see what's inside. All right it's taking a little bit of a bite. It's he's struggling a bit. He's pulling at it with his teeth.
What do you think?
what's it flight? What's the fly but what do you think?
ice cream that's good for you or something?
mochi is a Japanese rice cake made of Maki gum, a short grain jepun Nika glutinous rice and some
times other ingredients such as water, sugar and cornstarch. The rice is pounded into paste and moulded into the desired shape.
In Japan, it's traditionally made in a ceremony called matcha much it took much Itsuki
I had never had a mochi until I went to that Kohl's and I was confused as because as confused as you and I found I bought some information back in the day I find these white the white ones are my favourite because they're like coconut what's Brown?
I don't know. I look not to sound like unrefined in regards to my taste or cultured. Yeah, coffee like but I don't know.
They're fine. They're fine, but it's like bubble tea.
I won't cry about it. But fuck.
Like you bring like it's great that you've done it but I was expecting
I'm taking you in the middle of something
frozen cake but he's going for another there's
seven that I've got him.
Okay they winning
the chocolate ones nice
chocolate ones good. Mm
hmm. The outside
is just like a weed texture. It's it's literally like latex rubber or something it
is not what you wanted it to though.
Well, I feel like I'm
Asian culture do some cookie shit like the way they do desserts like this is probably my favourite Japanese dessert I've ever had I don't I don't think I've had a lot of Japanese desserts but
I respect this or sports a lot yellow one.
If it's like a lemon curd I would like it or try it man. I'm not stuffing you
Life at home. How
am I trying crazy? It's like I'm travelling.
I'm trying the yellow one. Did you really get to feel them? They can confuse you when you pick them up, don't they? Like your fingers are confused.
Oh, mango manga. Manga you right? Yeah. Manga. Manga. It's quite nice. Yeah, look, I don't I don't know if I'm gonna get through the seven that I've purchased for both of us. But anyway, Happy Friday happy fat Fridays. Enjoy your mochi. Mm
He tried any really crazy stuff when travelling? Not not. Not not to the I feel like
in in comparison to someone like saves. I'm probably out there. Yeah, I guess it's not hard but
no, I've had no
Problem trying stuff I haven't been to. I've been to Bali and Singapore, but that's that I haven't gone sort of crazy. Not that you can really then but I feel like straight markets in Thailand or or you know the straight markets in in China probably more so. On the crazy edge Yeah. In when I was eating for Pakistan I was at a restaurant and they said my you like lamb brains I said are no thank you and I go no that's what you've
been hailing I thought it was some other dish and I was been a real graded about greedy bastard and turns out it was the the one where it's like it's so fatty that they say you should like watch how much you wait because you can really use stomach. I really yeah you've only meant to have
a certain amount like you know once every two weeks or whatever
All right, they don't have that. Yeah, but it was it was delicious. It was very good.
Well, I mean, how do they feel in terms of
all like, like, they're fine. I just I reckon it's probably the I Sam like a real gronk around like, I like trying new things. Even I'm not even really. I'm not a picky eater, but like Brie and I were talking the other day. I'm not really an egg noodle guy. I just even you know what this reminds me a little bit of
there's like a Persian ice cream or like, even in
maybe turkey or something. It's like a lot. No, Pakistan does it too. It's like a rice ice cream. What do they call it? Let's have a look. Rice cream.
It's a good idea.
I'm not sure where it was.
falooda it falooda I think it's called and
Yeah, they put like, different stuff in it. But yeah, I'm just
like I'm, I am a desert guy. I do like deserts.
But it sounds like you're not the desert guy. If you don't like the term so you like Terra, sir. Yeah. Yeah, like tiramisu. So, if I
wasn't a big tiramisu guy, I would never order it, but now I would. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he's had to jet off to drop an animal at the vet.
You don't even have a pet. Pet mat. No pet here. And I'm glad that we have no pets because I didn't think I'd have to, you know, be a part of or connected to veterans. Yeah. Parents have dogs and stuff, you know, a dog but I sort of glaze over when I hear that they're taken to the vet is, you know,
Amy sister came home, found on the ground, a small animal.
I was I was
Just like it just cooking in the kitchen are not for me. Not Not for me right now. I don't want to engage. And next minute there's a box bringing in a small sort of maybe marsupial marsupial's now sorry masuku possum. possum my CPU thinks
about CPU just means I've got little patch
patches. I'm not sure.
Anyhow, this thing came in and I was like man, that's a small dog. It's not the size of it. Just the way it looked. Not at all very dos are very dislike out of it. Tiny though. The size of your fist. The size of four mccheese put together. Yeah, so it's it's quite small. But at that point, Saigon na and they coaling numbers they you know, you know what, you know the panic that I had when Amy when Amy when I mean
waters broke when you were on the phone to me That's right. And I said I gotta go
on the floor what
was on the couch? I was like Oh wow. And I had to get
this run get a catch gum tree just trying to get my
oh my god Do you know that couch is at the office? Oh is that they catch that the cat Oh great. The Daily talk show studio catch has a very special day he's very special. I didn't even think about that now. Don't ever want to get rid of it. So Amy's waters broke on that and I could not fucking believe how much water was there. And that town just had to sort of get to work you know? Anyway. Why struggle there was a history in the office counts like when you look at it. You can tell it's been through a bit Helen back.
Once I came home to my bond dye apartment, one better without
And yeah, I've been playing out. Yeah been bit naughty stayed out a bit late, and my bed was made on that couch. There's a story like that. So you've slept I was like, Alright, I'm mine on that. I'm playing on that next minute I'm back in the bed.
It's And so anyway, so you bet you're trying to get the number, right because it's like it's the same when you like, Who am I calling? So the The girls are calling. I mean, she comes in says, do we have y here? What the fuck? Why? Why have we got wire? I've got no y here. What do you mean? Why aren't Victoria wire everything? It's some wildlife thing in in New South Wales. And so is there the Why is there a equivalent of why here in Victoria? over my head again. And so Amy's cold the guy in New South Wales is like, Yeah, what's your address? She's like, blah, blah. You know, Victoria. Oh, when you say otherwise. Yeah, I know. But we didn't know the number in between.
Did you lead with that? I know but it's the pennick it's the similar thing of me trying to call the hospitals that I needed to take me to. To and I might
do you have to call them but I we're on our way. I think it was all too much for me to be honest. That's probably why I just didn't save it in my phone.
Funny like that you could do game prep to the checklist the bag ready to go check. It's fuckin a food pack. Check it what's the food? Now? To be honest, you I had that that sort of had that was had some had had maybe some clinkers there.
So it's good stuff. It's good stuff. And I mean, I want to basically she had one snake and I smashed everything else because she wasn't hungry
did a half marathon and I met her at different points.
handing her jelly snags, but she didn't want them. So I just ended up watching her doing a half marathon while I ate totally snags
we're just going to save it in you. I mean, it's probably one of those things you're like, save a local vet. Save your local hospital.
Obviously 000 isn't needed
to some vet number. Well, if you've got a soul unlike myself,
then I want you would pick up an animal and so Amy I just messaged her said that you hear and she said went to the vet back in 10. And so she's taken this little animal awesome. Not yet. identified. You don't know yet identify the right. Straight right.
That's pretty funny. Oh,
yeah, yeah. When? When I was a kid, my dad
For whatever reason, very angry and are possums that would sort of wake us up and all that sort of thing and so he he got paid like a cage and would catch them and then put them in the back of the ute and then would drive 15 minutes and then we'll drop them off and so I had to stay in the EU like in the in the cap bit of it and and he would would get out and he would let the cage open and because the possum would be
kissing like real scary shit, and it would like run off and we'll do it near a tree and that would run out the big trace and it happened like three or four times to the point where dad hidden like, at this point I think he's gone a bit crazy because he's like, they're coming back it's the same fact and possum
Yeah, my mom
Don't be stupid. Not it's the same fucking
possum that's and so in a rage he got some pink spray paint and spray painted the back
so and it's now a new species in Victoria bottom yet never never came back it didn't get back cheese
now I respect that I learned the hard by though my
cat capturing possums it's actually illegal to look after possum without a licence in Victoria. It's to try and have one as I can't do anything yeah it's a fucking bullshit first I start with a fuckin mask and at the fat portion can have a barbecue out the back if it's fucking, you know. Anyway, I just kid this kid Dean, who has stayed at his house once he had a Dane. I actually watched Dan get bashed later in life by by another kid we promise nothing. No
I have another guy and I had to fucking jump in the car for Dane. Dane was a nice young guy. Anyway, why didn't someone try and beat him up? Ah, there was some beef between them. Must you want one of these? I'm just saying, pull me off the mochi now. The razor if you want them later, I feel like someone who loves fillet a fish would love a mochi.
Yeah, like it's a refined palate thing. Yeah, refined palate. Definitely it'd be good to sort of get the girls on later from the episode to try and mature and give it their their two cents. I'd like to hear from Bree what she thinks of a mochi anyway yeah days place. We thought it was hilarious to just put a cage out with a bit of apple in it, which was a possum catching cage. And might the thing just raw, just fucking evil.
just sounded like a vampire. Never again, it means that I want to be captured like that.
It's pretty fucked up to be honest. I'm just messaging Bray Casey. Nice test something
on him. This is uh can we can we get a Was it a possum? Can we get a confirmation? That wasn't what it was awesome yeah, was that pink tail possum? Richard Jansen I mentioned Richard
what are you gonna do on the weekend? What are your find
my capital things got a few new items of furniture arriving of the town got the cat you have a Yeah. Oh, that's good to catch. holder. The firehouse the history list couch. Not nothing's happened on this couch. Sure.
Why? I mean, did your couch come in a big box? Didn't feel like
nothing. They come new. It's a good point. I wonder if anyone's sat on the couch.
You purchase even from your I can just a little little bomb bumps it anyway got that to set up, you know got got a new dining table and that's it so that what what sort of shape
is just, you know 684 centre that turns into a
rectangle. Okay. Usually, I mean, you've probably got an elaborate house if you've got a square table that you think Yeah, I guess I guess I just that it's a it's a bit dishonouring it would be
maybe I think inefficient is huge because you need to have enough room for
true two to one either so on all sides, so it's an acceleration
table which is very big. It would really feel the centre of a room. mics is just putting it off to the side doesn't really work. Apparently circular ones are the best
in small spaces, really? Yeah, but we we have a marble
lounge. What's it called? Like a coffee table? Oh, yeah.
And Bree was like obsessed with it. Like this is one of our, you know, big purchases. Yeah. And it turns out that the marble is actually only a really, really thin layer on top and then it's just fake marble. I think you wouldn't want to pointed this out to us now. I feel like it's too.
I feel like bodies just ruining my shot. He's flicking on the lights on an officer.
Do you want Bodie to taste test one night he's had too much sugar. I can't give him it's actually there's not much it's not very sweet. I know it's not sweet, but it's definitely got sugar in it, like razor is she gonna do it? She Kanaan as you might be she might be on a call give me I'm just going to say alright, in our bodies had way too much sugar. I'm talking to myself now.
Come you should stop. Stop giving Bodie sugar. You know, I try. I try. Look, he likes to go nuts. And then sometimes you just neither
it's a catch 22 because he like it stops him going nuts but then they just spark back up within five minutes. And so it's no good. She's on a work call and it saved me decided need some taste test something. Okay, I could not work is as fun as ours. Can.
I? Just quickly, I mentioned to you yesterday that the online trolls are out in force. Yeah.
Sam Harris. I mean, you can call these trolls or activists, Sam Harris, meditation teacher, neuroscientist. For some reason he put up a post that had nothing to do with veganism. And in the comment section. I was like, I should have just read the first one. I was like that seems out of place. And it was about like, Sam, why don't you vegan and the next one, and the next one. This was all about v
Isn't, and I was like, Oh my god, it's like they've they must have like a forum with. I know you hate vegans.
We've done surveys in every survey, someone says, I wish Tommy was more open minded.
Absolutely not. I've got no no problem with him.
No. And so yeah, he's been getting a bunch of hate coming from the him, which I didn't look too deeply into. I mean, didn't look too deeply into why it's all going on. And then I saw
your mate Shane Jacobson. He's been copying with magnets as well. With magnet.
magnet magnet and Magda. And
Magnus Szymanski. Yeah, man.
So, Magda, yeah, mag image ad mag. They're not Mega Man. I might have put an end in there. Yeah, Magda. sibande ski Chabad.
I initially said Sabanci doesn't Chabad,
which I was, um, so the connection to it. Shane is an Australian icon. He's a TV superstar actor, amazing actor. And he's in a commercial at the moment, which I happen to see whether it was on a Facebook pre roll or sorry, a YouTube pre roll ad, you wouldn't have said it just because you don't know if I can put up with that shit. And it's this great little clip of Shane. So working on a car, and he sort of comes up he's like, ah, Hey, hi there. And you know, he's shine style and it's a real Ozzy dude. And he kind of talks about sort of condoms back in the day, you know, he pulls out this thing of condoms that drops down and he's like, buddy, you know, you put these on or and then he's like, the modern day thing is you know, you're gonna put a mask on. And so there's this connection is this funny gag between the old approach to condoms and then this new approach to mask and I just thought, fuck, he's such a good actor like he delivered it.
So well, it's so Shane. And it was so not much other than just saying it was a light hearted at mascota. Yeah. Which I actually I honestly didn't think anything of it other than I love shine. He's awesome.
And then I see this Facebook status is on Facebook and the answer that says since doing an ad just to say wear a mask, myself and my friend Magda have been abused fat shamed and threatened for me mostly on Facebook, aka hate book. And the worst messages are direct messages that others can't say. Interestingly, apparently, I should stick to my day job. Funny thing is being on TV was my day job until COVID. Also, apparently, people don't like actors having an opinion, even even though my opinion was just whack on a mask. You know all those people yelling at me with filled opinions.
And wholesale wholesale quantities of pure hate. And yet Apparently, they all know more than me, irrespective of what their day job is. He goes on to just sort of talk about, you know, the Hades head from it
is just so confused, or the ads actually on his Instagram, if you want to see it, the Shane Jacobson issues on this. Just people have spoken about this, haven't we? Just angry? What is it? Do you think it's, you know, we don't need to get into what they're talking about necessarily, but it might be it's a thing of it's a current timing thing. Like it's a you go for drive will get upset about people get upset with celebrities, especially in these times, right. Like if you think about it, when everyone's feeling a bit down or whatever. It seems like a real it's like punching up. People love punching up and that's what they're essentially doing and then you put with it
You know, like if for whatever reason, masks have somehow become some sort of political statement where it's somehow communicating your you know, the way that you know that your political leanings and I guess that's part of it too, but
people don't like being told what to do as well. So, yeah, people are idiots. It's very annoying.
Yeah, yeah, I mean, I'm surprised you haven't gone fucking off your rocker about it all you don't like being told what to do, but you seem to Oh, yeah, I mean, if it's, it's gonna keep people alive, man. I'm feeling sick. I'm Oh, no, the machine. The fucking marches. Gotcha. Maci gotcha just real facts and real snotty.
Yeah, I'm not fucking like I have over a year to drink. So that Oh, Jeremy. Gotcha. So you could try I got it. So because I say do you drink have some vitamin C. You always just come back with I really
