Judge John Hodgman Episode 295: The Hallowed Y'alls of Justice

| 0 comments

Alexandra brings the case against her mother, Dale. Whenever Dale travels, she likes to adopt the local accent in conversation with those around her. Alexandra is embarrassed every time she does this and wishes she would stop. Who's right? Who's wrong?

If you want to listen to the Dick Van Dyke interview on Bullseye that was referenced in this episode, you can find it here.

EVIDENCE

Here's a comprehensive list of Alexandra's Googlings:

A) “I urge you all never to mimic another person’s accent without permission, and here is why […] I understand that for many people I’ve met, mimicking my accent is not something that is done out of spite. Most would assure me the reason they do it is because they like it, and I too am guilty of copying an accent out of admiration. However, when someone tries to impersonate me, two things happen: They do an awful job at it, and I instantly feel like a joke.”
-Excerpt from the article “Don’t Do A British Accent” by Gena-Mour Barrett

B) "My favourite (sarcasm) are the people who think because I am white and British it is acceptable to imitate my accent when having a conversation. Now if I were Indian would they do the same? I think not. Just like the author said. We are not here to amuse and entertain you."
-From this webpage (comments section)

C) "What is cultural appropriation? Cultural appropriation is the adoption or theft of icons, rituals, aesthetic standards, and behavior from one culture or subculture by another. It generally is applied when the subject culture is a minority culture or somehow subordinate in social, political, economic, or military status to the appropriating culture."
-From this webpage

D) "Just because it doesn’t affect you personally doesn’t mean it’s not oppressive."
-From this webpage

E) “The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self.”
―Fred Rogers

Submitted by Dale:

Statement #1, from Dale’s friend Sarah (interview between Dale and Sarah).

Statement #2, from Dale’s younger daughter, Olivia.

Statement #3, from Dale’s friend, Marie, a Franco-American.

Thank you to David Dwyer for suggesting this week's title! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put a call for submissions.

When the walls fall at Shaka, Kiazi’s children’s faces get really wet. The beast is at Tanagra, but it’s anyone’s guess where Darmok and Jalad are w/r/t the ocean. Will Zinda’s face be black and his eyes red? Who, if not Mirab, is going to unfurl these sails? Is Uzani’s army going with the fist open or the fist closed? Is the river Temarc in winter or what? It’s the episode that opens Sokath’s eyes.

#98 - Hot or Cold Sandwiches LIVE from a car

| 0 comments

Cold cuts. Meatball subs. PB & J. The mighty melt. With many varieties of both hot and cold sandwiches to tantalize your taste buds, which one is the best?

Mark and Hal belly up to the counter and decide whether the hot or cold sandwich is best. But they're not at a counter. They're in the backseat of Hal's car. Will the rising temperatures take their consciousness before they can render a verdict? Will the Queen's taxation of toasted sandwiches create Anarchy in the Subway? Only one way to find out!

See Mark, Hal, and our WorkJuice Player guests LIVE at the SF Punchline on Saturday, January 14th for We Got This during SF Sketchfest! Get tickets here!

Bullseye's Judge John Hodgman Special

Show: 
Bullseye

This week Bullseye with Jesse Thorn breaks format to bring you something from another great show on the Maximum Fun Network.


Judge John Hodgman

If you know John Hodgman , it's probably as The Deranged Millionaire on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, his appearances on Red Oaks or maybe from his books of world knowledge. Or, maybe, as the PC from the Mac vs. PC ads. What you might not know is that he's also a fake judge on the internet.

On Judge John Hodgman, he hears disputes from real people all over the world via Skype and tells them who's right and who's wrong. Jesse Thorn is the bailiff. The two cases you’ll be hearing are slightly truncated versions. If you want to hear the full versions, click below.

Grand Theft Risotto

Mike brings the case against his mom, Maribeth. He says Maribeth knowingly took her daughter-in-law's recipes for a family cookbook and passed them off as her own. Maribeth says that the attribution was implied and there was no wrongdoing.

Assault and Hey Batter Battery

Naomi files suit against her husband, Spencer. She’s embarrassed by his loud and incessant heckling at baseball games. She’s frustrated that Spencer continues heckling at baseball games despite his promises that he’ll stop.

If you liked what you heard today, there are over 250 episodes of Judge John Hodgman ready and waiting for you, and a new one added each week! Click here to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, or look for it in your favorite podcatcher.
