Meanwhile, Elliott explains how to find a Transformer's clitoris, Stuart keeps on Castle Freakin' on, and sleepy Dan (sort of) returns.

Lovely hosts Brian And Lindsay are excited to Totally Eat That

Maximum Fun's very own Brian Fernandes and Lindsay Pavlas are the stars of our first-ever web series, Brian And Lindsay Will Totally Eat That! Someone will throw them a snack, they'll eat it and rate it on a scale from "yummy to crummy." They have recorded a pilot already and with Director Benjamin Harrison (Put This On, 1000 Cones) and Director of Photography Noé Montes on the team, it looks great.

We are raising money for the first season on Kickstarter now! If enough backers step up, our friends at will be giving us a huge challenge grant.

In the meantime, keep checking back here for updates! If you want to get in on the conversation, search and use #TotesEat on Twitter! And don't forget to donate now!

Here is a taste of what's to come on Brian and Lindsay Will Totally Eat That, care of Benjamin Harrison:

Water World


Hello buddies! This is a big one: the polar ice caps have melted and the world is flooded! We cover what would really happen and what to do if the Hollywood version happens! What do you wear when the world is flooded? How much of the south would we lose? Will Andie one day turn in to one full body freckle? All of these things will be answered and more! Be sure to subscribe/rate/review on iTunes and then tell your friends!
