Josh Janssen: [00:00:00] It's the daily talk show episode 891.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:07] Happy fat Friday. Groks what's happening. What's going on
Josh Janssen: [00:00:11] this year. There's a throwback for me. I used to get Italian hot chocolates. All of the time, uh, from max Brenna, which is on in South Melbourne, just, uh, underneath the radio station when I worked for them rip, uh, yes.
And so I found this is a Belgian hot chocolate from cocoa butter, black kit. Very good. It's it's
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:34] motion a caps on. Yeah. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:35] Can you like, my lips will look Brown. It's that's that's how, um, our chocolate it is.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:41] Minor glazey. Cause I, you know, I've just put a nice little pour pour on, but we've almost gone similar actually.
You're in Belgium. I'm I'm I think I'm in Italy. I've got, uh, uh, Italy, Italy, 1953. It's um, there's. Bullying where I live is a large Italian community. A great, you know, what that brings is lemon trees, quiet streets and, you know, Italian sort of importers of, of sweets. And so there is a store. I embarrass myself, I went in there and I was like, Mmm.
That I found. So I'll show you what it is. They're these little, if you've been to Italy, they do the version of like Nutella,
Josh Janssen: [00:01:23] the light winnow type things, but not bueno
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:26] kind of, it is like, it looks like a Tim-Tam shape, but it's, it's in the texture of a cake. And so they're very soft in the middle. There's some gooey chocolate, awful, awful, awful, not waffle, like.
Soft think, um, fake cake, that's what you get, right? You need to leave with a glass, a long black or a little, maybe not even more long macchiato or a, you know, just a short shot, whatever you call it.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:54] Just to mix things up. I also got some chocolate. I got the marbles and milk from Caremark. Yes. And so they do look.
I mean, this isn't like a malteser you're not going to smash, smash them at the speed.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:09] Hey, Hey, Hey, don't talk about it. You know, you would,
Josh Janssen: [00:02:11] you know, I'm trying to talk, I'm trying to talk myself out of it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:15] Don't
Josh Janssen: [00:02:15] hear don't smash them. Sorry. We'll I'll have batteries.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:19] So I walked into the shop, um, First time shopper, long time Walker, passer.
And I look in, you know, and, and I am say intimidating. Yeah, quite, quite narrow, you know, sort of a young hipster looking guy working in there, man bun kind of, you know, when someone's kind of looking at you, you see their eyes just sort of dart towards you, but they don't want to sort of engage. Weed for a person that works in a shop.
But anyway, I said, Oh, where do I pay for this? Cause it was like a deli. And then there was this kind of like side bit. It's like, Oh, just around there, you press the bell. It's just there, like making it out like a bit of a fuckhead.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:58] Are you a bit of a fuckhead?
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:59] Absolutely. I didn't see the bill there and it's not my go to, to ring a bell.
Um, but I said great to know. I'll love to bring that next time. And in a nicer, I was like, Oh great. You know, first time being here. Oh, yep. Great. And so I got, you know, put my transaction through, I nearly walked into the fucking glass.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:20] No, definitely not been
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:21] there. It's an exit sign. She's like love green button.
It's like. Well, now I know again
Josh Janssen: [00:03:27] now I know next time.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:29] So it was off to a
Josh Janssen: [00:03:30] horrible staff. It feels like the type of place that you would, um, get a ticket. Like you would get like a number. Did they have any of those?
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:39] No,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:40] no, no. Can you show me what it is?
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:42] Oh, it's just, it's little. It's fluffy and it smells like there's a, you know, like Italian traits have like some could be some sort of like alcohol within it.
I mean, trust me, sniffing out the alcohol.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:54] Yeah, sure. If this is your business, like the Bailey's ice cream all over
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:57] again, that this is graft. Oh, so soft. Oh my God. I have one.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:06] I have, I'm really happy to. The salted caramel stuff, bursts in your mouth. They're ridiculous. Describe yours.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:14] It is soft textured, sort of fluffy fluffiness of the inside with a, uh, uh, uh, chocolatey, but like the Italian style chocolatey running through the middle.
Um, if you've had panatonics with chocolate inside, it's the similar stuff. And on the outside is a beautiful sort of chocolate coating. It's
Josh Janssen: [00:04:36] it's a little into me.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:40] You'd love it.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:41] It's really nice.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:41] I lived there. I lived the house for a walk this morning. 6:00 AM just a quickie. I've worked out that I have to do morning and night.
Otherwise I'm going to
Josh Janssen: [00:04:50] absolutely. Day's very hard.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:52] Well it's, it was either it was more leaving it to the last thing. And so I'm out fucking 8:30 PM. Walking for hour for an hour off is like, absolutely not. Um, I realized I got up and you know, I'm trying to be quiet, sort of getting my stuff together. I'm hoping Bodhi doesn't wake up.
I see his doors open. I close it very gently. I turn on the, you know, the ducted heating, make sure it's nice for Amos when she wakes up. It's nice
Josh Janssen: [00:05:24] painting now in instead of October,
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:28] I know it's bizarre. It's getting colder as well. Like w you know, the weekends? No. Good. I don't think that's not good. Um, I mean, we're pushing it, getting the use out of the heater before I literally went from a ducted heating in the morning to split system, air conduit.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:47] Yeah. Do you have, do, do you have your windows open in the evenings?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:52] No, an eye fly screen stuff. We've got to get that sorted. But anyway, I got up and I left and so my ass, I was clenched as I'm leaving as always just trying to not wake up the family. And I got sort of probably five or six minutes into the walk.
And I realized that I didn't have headphones in. Um, and I know you've sort of not come to work because your headphones are charging and you can't do the walk without it. My point being is I had so much noise in my head going on that I, it completely gone out of my mind, but like, my head felt like I had headphones on, you know, like it was fast.
It was like just the daily talk,
Josh Janssen: [00:06:37] talk show in your head.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:41] Just nothing, nothing much, but just a lot, you know, some mornings are noisier in your mind than others. Some mornings you wake up, there's not much happening. Yup. I was thinking about the day that I had liked is what I'm doing. And then, but I was just amazed at how noisy the mind can be. Yeah, it is full on like, I mean, the conversation with harps on Wednesday, which, you know, the back end sort of is hops says went deep and, um, and we, you know, we're talking about consciousness and.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:16] did you feel anxious?
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:18] No. No, I actually, I actually was that wasn't the first thought it was just like music festival going on, you know, just like, you know, just happening. It was just a bustling, bustling mind, which is, it's just a weird, isn't it? The human experience. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:34] I mean, I feel like if the information we consume wait, going to become more and more conscious around that stuff, because at the moment we're just delivered.
Whatever social media throws at us, but it's like, I see that the may watching CNN and all of the sort of, you know, Fox news, all the different news outlets watching, you know, the different sides of politics. It is very, very, very noisy. And it's so easy just to be consumed by it. So you can wake up in the morning and you can be consumed by something Trump's done.
You could spend, I could spend an hour. Before I start work, thinking about Trump. Isn't that crazy? It's too much.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:19] I was thinking about him, but I was also thinking about, I had a moment where I was like, you wasn't thinking about me right now. That's not me. Like, not in a way of like, I want people to think about me.
It's like, I realized I, this following thought was like, think about how many people are thinking about the human Trump, Donald, like it's, it's phenomenal. It's phenomenal. And so I guess there's where there's probably a lot of ego wrapped up when you're wanting. Well, I can
Josh Janssen: [00:08:53] give you thought about what anyone that's listening to.
This is thinking about you now, does that make you feel good
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:58] now? Like
Josh Janssen: [00:09:01] you've done it to be just kind of prompted you want it to be just middle of the, if you've thought, if you've had a dream about Tommy or myself or mr. 97, if you have some chocolate and you say, by the way, if you've, if you've had a dream about us, send us an email.
Hi. At the daily talk, show.com for best dream. Uh, we'll get some stickers.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:21] Yeah. And what about outside of. Just during the day, have you thought, like it's nothing to do with the shower? Like have you, have we come into your mind
Josh Janssen: [00:09:32] since doesn't matters? That's all. Always just
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:34] let us know, but no, in terms of making you feel good, I don't, it doesn't hasn't made me feel any, or maybe want to get the dream stories.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:43] You feel good. Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:45] but it's, um, you know, there's people that come into my mind. That from my past, just bizarre, just pop in, pop into my mind.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:56] Um, this, this is, this drink is just reminding me of, um, uh, throwing back to a different time. Is it like I was thinking about how we're really good friends with people we work with when you're working with people and then your internet shitting the bed, by the way, did you want to.
Disconnect and connect. Oh, jump back in. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:20] Okay.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:21] Uh, the it's very, very hard to have you already gone out and in those names, trying to find a good point? Uh, no, just the thing about friends, friends that you work with, people that you're close with, work environments have this thing where you spend so much time together and then you move on to another job.
And it's completely, um, acute you won't, you won't chat to people. I just have been noticing that lately. Like I think about like, I've caught up with Jack a bunch Jack posts and we, we used to do a silly lunch. Do you know what a silly lunches
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:58] is it, is it like,
Josh Janssen: [00:11:00] yeah, yeah, yeah. So we'll just do it anytime.
Like it wasn't specific to any day, we would just have a brownie, dangerous brownie, a hot chocolate, just middle of the day, like lunch. I see it, like waffles, just silly, silly things, but, um, yeah, like, do you find it, have you, um, become really good friends with people that you've worked with and then you finished working and then you just don't really talk.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:26] Yeah. Yeah. It is totally about proximity. If you're around people doing the same things, you at the same bubble, same. You know, same shit that you're trying to work on together makes a lot of sense as to why you become close. So, I mean, I was literally thinking about that the other day, and I don't know if it's a bad thing, like
Josh Janssen: [00:11:52] falling out of touch of people like with people.
Is it how much responsibility do you put into that? Okay. I was thinking about people that I just haven't spoken to in ages. It's not falling out. There's no, but you just sort of, you go from at one point your messaging all the time and talking, and then just slowly you drift apart.
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:13] It's not bad. I wonder, I wonder though what the stories on the other side, non for every, yeah.
Yeah. I could imagine there's a bunch of people that like, yeah, we just don't work together anymore. We don't really see each other. I love him, but yeah, I just. That's the hard bit. Cause I, I would craft that story, which is like, yeah, but then maybe some people Oh
Josh Janssen: [00:12:39] yeah, because the thing is, it's like, Oh, well they haven't tried either.
So it's this whole thing of like, Oh, like I haven't tried, but I've just, haven't tried just because I've been busy or doing other stuff. Yeah. But do we, do we,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:51] you don't want guilt about it. And so I guess, I mean, what we're talking about is. What's hops was talking about the, the what's the experience of you.
And so maybe it's like, right. That's what I think. How would, how would that other person be thinking what could have been a situation, but then it's, he's the other bit, which doesn't solve any problem, but it gets too deep and you can't contact them and you're like, yeah,
Josh Janssen: [00:13:17] it's too far gone.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:21] It's done.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:22] Um, what, what is you a eight.
When you were employed at a normal company where you were a guy who brought food, or did you go down to the, um, to the local shops? What were you doing?
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:36] I know in Shepparton, it's probably my only real job.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:40] What about when you were at kiss in Melbourne? What were you doing then? That was a breakfast.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:44] Yes.
Sushi, sushi. There was a sushi joint got fair. Bit of sushi. Um, but Shepard and had a great routine smoothie in the morning, you know, uh, uh, tuna salad after I was like, I had a dialed
Josh Janssen: [00:14:00] in pretty lame. So what was the, um, Did you ever remember having a budget? Like I remember it being a big thing where breeze like, try and keep it under 10 bucks.
Yeah. It was like a, like an Indian place in the food court that would do like a $10 special. And that becomes your thing.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:19] Yeah. Yeah. No, it was all way. I mean, if you, if you're doing the sushi game, you're under 10 bucks for three rolls, I reckon three rolls. And so, yeah, I mean, 10 bucks is great, but can you is 10 bucks?
Viable. I mean, if you going anywhere,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:37] if you, yeah. So the things you'd need is, um, you could probably get what, like a sandwich, maybe what does a bakery sandwich cost? Six bucks. Seven bucks.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:48] yeah, yeah, yeah. But then what kind of bakery is it? Cause then if it's a higher end, it's going to be a 13, 50, 13, 50 little spender.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:58] And then there's the coffee thing. Just imagine the amount of people that. When you're in an office block, you would all go get coffee together. That was like a big, like, I know when, um, we don't do that that much because I hate fucking Victoria straightened dealing with everything it goes on. And so I just like, once I'm at the office, I like that I'm at the office, but that was, I remember that being a big thing where you'd rock up at eight o'clock everyone's at their desk and be like, Oh, do you want to get coffee?
You said, just go out and. And, uh, and get it, I guess that that would be something a lot of best friends. Yeah. You have the best friends that you don't really. Talk to you didn't want you to finish.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:40] Yeah. Um, I've got an update, uh, earlier in the week I was filling you in on what I thought, uh, you know, it was sort of could have been just one sided.
I was, I had worked out that when I opened bodies' nappy, when I removed the sort of Velcro adhesive tag. Yeah. It illuminated and sent out a color. And it only happened during the middle of the night, not in the daytime, uh, had a few people, one bat. He, um, he sent through message saying, read the nappy spark, check out, and then he's put this word, try Bo Lum, minus essence, tribal lemon.
And I sense, it's a big word. And it's got a whole Wikipedia page to it.
Josh Janssen: [00:16:28] What does it mean.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:30] Well, I went there. That's a good point. What does it mean? I mean, maybe it just means that's
Josh Janssen: [00:16:34] meant to make you, what does it say? Is it specific arcs for nappies?
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:39] It's an optical phenomenon, which is light. Being generated when a material is mechanically pulled apart, reaped scratched, crushed, or robbed.
The phenomenon is not fully understood, but appears to be caused by the separation and reunification of static electrical charges. And then I saw color, dude, there's a photo of it. He is. What I'm seeing. And then Glen, from over in Florida, he's messaged in maybe a link to East Bay, times.com. Not sure what that is.
So location, obviously. Um, and then it's asked mr. Dad, and the question is what were those green sparks? The question is I was up changing my baby's diaper last night and saw green sparks shooting out of it. I called my wife in to show her. But it didn't happen again. She thinks I'm nuts. I'm quite sure a saw something.
Could I have. And then the answer is you're not crazy at all when you saw, Oh my God. That word there again, I can't say. Um, translate one way, what you saw or was cry blue. Yes. I instance, which is relatively ordinary and completely harmless in your case. Oh, here we go. Try IO comes from the Greek to Rob and.
Low luminescence, maybe it is luminescence. Luminescence has to do with light may have been a buildup of energy caused by friction of your baby's bottom rubbing against the inside of the diaper. I said, this is different that you seeing something different or from pulling on the tape. So I'm seeing it cause there's a,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:24] that'd be a lot of static electricity that's built up from that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:28] But the weed bit is it's just the dad sing in the middle of the night and you know, moms are thinking we're crazy, but we're saying light bizarre that it's um, I'm glad I worked it out though. Like, it's so funny how you see someone who's just got the exact same thing going on in his life. We're also basic with the same,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:54] very handy, isn't it.
2020 you can find basically anything.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:59] Well, see, the thing is, I, I didn't even know what to type in and I'm glad that we have the Gronk Scott squad that could actually work out. This did a science degree. And so he knew about it. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:14] I wonder what other things like, um, I'm guessing a rock. I like rocks. You can create sparks.
Is that different?
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:21] I reckon that's different because it's, that's like an impact banging
Josh Janssen: [00:19:27] friction. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:28] Yeah. I don't, but this isn't, it's not it's you could spark off a rock to create a fire, whereas I wonder what the differences between an actual spark and the Tribo luminescence. I think that's how you must say it since.
Yeah. Like I was obsessed. We had a Flint rock as a kid. It was like a rock, but it was a, almost looked like the handle of a knife, but rather than sort of like being a handle, it was on the top line. Was this line of Flint. Do you know,
Josh Janssen: [00:20:03] what would you use it for? Yeah. It's Flint like it's for, um, lighting things.
Yeah. It's like, is it soaked in something?
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:09] Well, no Flint, the Flint. Itself is this it's a rock. So it's
Josh Janssen: [00:20:17] form of rock.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:18] Flint is a sediment tree. Creep. So crystal eilean form of a mineral courts, but in a lighter. So when you roll the lighter, there's a, there's a little, it almost looks like the head of a gray led pen.
Like what's inside of a pencil and it's, it's being rubbed your, when you roll the bowl, It rolls on top of the Flint and shoots the Flint towards the gas, say
Josh Janssen: [00:20:48] cluck, you didn't think how these products are made. Like the amount that goes into all of these different things, man. Like if you actually thought about all of the, like you pick up anything and you're like, Oh, that's, that's taken a bunch of work.
You say like Apple do their own face masks for their employees, really Apple manufacturers, their own. Wow. Yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:13] it's mine
Josh Janssen: [00:21:15] now. They're just like a better design, which is, wow. It's a bit, a bit Apple of them
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:23] on the, on the Flint rock of just saying it's, um, Flint is a hard, tough chemical that breaks with, uh, when it's fractured is a form of courts.
It's um, maybe like who the hell worked out if we got this and then yeah. You know, broke it down, like got it into this specific type. Like it's usually, like they say Flint is hard, tough chemical or biochemical tree rock that breaks with a fracture. And so who the fudge, other than sort of cavemen bang and shit together, but you're right.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:03] everything,
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:05] everything. Hmm. It's yeah, it goes deep, dead.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:08] Have you, um, have you thought about your 25 kilometer radius where you're going to go? I saw that, uh, grace went for a walk. She can make it to South Melbourne, the water there. So she got her a beach fix, even if it is a slightly average beach.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:26] Well, yeah, so you can drive and then walk. That's all. Yeah, that's great. Yeah. I actually thought about it. Last night. I was like, what if I just drove to the city and went walking around the city? That's allowed, I can make it there. Yeah. I wonder what is that where you want to go? Nah, I'd rather go towards the, the water down the, my parents' place.
Yeah. Cheltonham so rather than that, cause no,
Josh Janssen: [00:22:49] you craving anything craving any holiday. Like if you think about your, uh, your ideal holiday, what would it be?
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:02] I have a CS. Oh, we were talking a lot about, um, well on hump day will because you're the travel guy and I leave and you, you know, double down on the travel conversation, as I say, it's weird, you know,
Josh Janssen: [00:23:14] what, what did I say? I haven't listened to him. Tell you
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:16] what it was that good montage of you mentioning the places you've been to Krakow.
You know, all of that shit
Josh Janssen: [00:23:25] just actually messaged and said, can't believe you. Loves Krakow. She wasn't a fan of Poland. Don't know if she mentioned it on hump day?
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:33] Well, you know, uh, Amy Amy mentioned that she loves the end of croissants to our sister and a sister said you'd like, that's the favorite bit of the crosswalk, if
Josh Janssen: [00:23:44] that's what you want.
I want everyone to have different tastes. So what does that mean? Can I guess, is Amy across girl then pizza, crust.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:56] Uh, I w I wouldn't call it one
Josh Janssen: [00:23:58] really
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:00] now I think croissants cause he can, you know, it's a different ball game.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:04] It's a crunch like I'm trying to even think of what an end of a croissant is.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:09] The difference is it's all a buttery sort of down that end is crunchy, but it's pastry. It's a bit sweeter crusties. I'm the cross monster in this house. Yeah, I'll eat the crusts. Bodie hates crusts. I love crusts.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:27] Well, I'll wait to, so you're going to nowadays,
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:30] it's one at the end of my Street's fucking phenomenal.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:34] Is it easy to, because I remember my dad refused and he said that margarita isn't a real pizza. We went to Latin migrated pizzas that it was a waste.
Have you had anything like that? Is
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:50] there any sort of, I just want to know what he's paid, sir is then if that's not, if that's,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:53] he was always like a Supreme or, or an Ozzie or a year long or, and meat lovers or whatever, it's just, it needed a Mexicana, but it's just like, I remember when, because it wasn't like, I feel growing up.
Three boys, you know, dad, mom, it's like, it was a pretty, you know, easy bet that we would get the ones with lots of toppings. But when I started dating Bree, She would go the margarita and he could say that would just shoot that to tears. Like he was just so upset about the idea that we were wasting. One of our family pizzas on a margarita.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:36] Is it like a scarcity mindset? Is it like if we need to fucking get value and lots of calories so that if, if something bad happens,
Josh Janssen: [00:25:45] well, you would think that that's like based on the Supreme or you would think that's the case because that fucking thing has got everything. It's got like, what's a good, um, that's a thing that you like, uh, uh, it's a fish.
It's like a fish. It's got like a tail
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:58] or
Josh Janssen: [00:26:00] blanket.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:01] Oh Jesus,
Josh Janssen: [00:26:02] no calorie
South Avenue. No, no, you're having a salad. Got it. Are are like just everything. Like they just fucking throw everything. At a Supremo
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:21] this smokey bacon, butter mushrooms, black olives, radon yen dice, capsicum, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese on a tomato base.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:30] Sorry, premier doesn't even have prawns.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:33] I've seen them with, I reckon, I reckon I've seen one with maybe it's the Ozzie.
I think we had a stream.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:39] Yeah. I just miss not having the, um, the scummy pit, like, uh, we at laser pig that's in Collingwood, just moved really close to our place. Um, they just, they, they just moved on Smith street.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:51] Yeah. They're on Smith street now.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:53] They're just, um, across, from easy straight actually. Um, yeah, very close, but they, um, yeah, their pizza is obviously delicious, but so different than the Peter that you grow up on.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:07] 100%.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:08] The smaller shitty ham. I cannot say that's an experience.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:13] Well, where I go. Four doors down is an older style. Like the, what I grew up on, that's sort of like, you got to, you got a margarita and you looked at it, you couldn't tell if it was burnt or, you know, it just had like this glaze of oil and, and cheese that was just bubbling and underneath, you know,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:34] would they have the plastic?
I remember like a big deal was I started doing the plastic separate separators, which I didn't even understand. What's that doing? It's stopping it from crushing potentially like shows that the slices have been cut properly. Cause nothing would piss that off more than them not cutting the slices.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:54] That is so true, but I've never, still understood if anything.
It is the you'd
Josh Janssen: [00:28:00] think it is stick pizza separators. You don't see them anymore. Do they just realize that they were unnecessary?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:08] Yeah. What is that thing?
Josh Janssen: [00:28:10] Plastic pizza. Separator pan separate. Yeah, here we go. Kitchen tools. White plastic pizza tables. No, that's not it. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:23] It's funny. Cause it says saver, but what is it doing referred to as a pizza?
Josh Janssen: [00:28:31] your internet. Quote the bed again. We'll table. Sorry. Hear me. Yeah. It's you you're downloading too much pizza stuff. So that again
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:40] it's so it's um, pizza table pizza stool, packaged saver is all the names, pizza, nipple, or pizza. Ottoman is an object used to prevent the top of food container, such as a pizza box or cake box from collapsing in the center and touching the food inside.
So you're right. Ah,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:03] pizza saver is not reused and is typically discarded by the patron. Although some people have found secondary uses for them, such as an egg holder when turned upside down.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:15] Love that.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:16] Surely we decided that that wasn't a thing anymore.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:21] Anything my landfill they're gone. They're absolutely gone.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:25] But I just remember when, like I remember when Domino's came to endeavor Hills. It was a big deal. $5 pizzas, the godfather
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:36] that is chaptered. God, will you not eat a margarita in my head?
Josh Janssen: [00:29:40] Yeah, it is. Was your, were your parents picky like that at all? Any, any sort of food rules?
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:47] It was like, don't be a, don't be a grown can get MCAS all the time.
It was, it was the auntie don't have it.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:56] Yeah. Well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:57] you know, it was like
Josh Janssen: [00:29:59] dad was upset because I'm the KFC at endeavor Hills stopped doing bacon in their, uh, zinger burgers because the, um, the franchisee or whatever a was Muslim, but for whatever reason that just fucking handle it, it was just too much for Richard Jansen from endeavor Hills.
So it's just like, I want to speak to the manager. Is it mrs. J this is ridiculous about dad. I'll just make you bacon at home. Do you really care? That much business is funny? Like just,
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:38] I mean, interesting thought is though, which I, which I've thought on seeing some it's like a franchisee has gone rogue.
And so there's a few around here. I won't name names, but you see them. And it's like, they've got some sort of ghetto sign that I've printed out on a, on an iPhone bit of paper.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:56] It's like sort of establishment, what are they doing? What are they
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:59] restaurant restaurant? And it literally said call and had the number, like call Bubba for pickup.
And it's, it's definitely because of covered. But they're a franchise. And I just know that they, that wouldn't be like, there is rules, right? And so when someone makes a cold,
Josh Janssen: [00:31:19] I need to fucking survive. Right? Like I always find franchises. Interesting. Right. You spend a lot of money. There's a great, if you look up franchises, subway a subway on YouTube.
There's a great, uh, short documentary on subway was one of the cheapest franchises to buy into. It was something like 150 or $200,000 to buy into it compared to a McDonald's, which at the time was around a million dollars. And the problem was that they didn't have any non-compete area. And so in, uh, New York in on like one block that would have four subways.
And so it was a real problem where it's like, uh, people who had bought into the franchise, but couldn't make any money. Because there was just too many, um, guess how many subways there are in the world? Oh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:16] I reckon like, uh, there's probably nine thing. Like I'm gonna get a guest 12,000 Fetty too.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:28] Let's have a look.
Uh, you broke up a little bit,
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:34] 12,492.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:38] Uh, 44,000.
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:43] It's a lot. Holy shit.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:45] Yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:47] lot of footlongs.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:49] Uh, anyway, uh, there you go. There, there's a, uh, there's, uh, an interesting doc on it. If you wanted to check that out, uh, I'm starting to fall asleep after eating the equivalent of a family block in a hot chocolate in water.
Yeah. Yeah. Enjoy your Friday, everyone. And we'll see tomorrow for weekend band to have a good one.
