This week on Judge John Hodgman, Anne brings the case against her husband, Mike. Mike spends a lot of time on the road for work. He likes to bring home a musical instrument from each trip as a souvenir. But, Anne thinks he doesn’t need to bring an instrument home from each country he visits. Who’s right? Who’s wrong?

Here is an article about the hidden nusery inside the National Theatre in Richmond, VA.

As well, here is the Wikipedia entry on the pink fairy armadillo, as discussed in this week's episode.

EVIDENCE

SUBMITTED BY ANNE:
"Here is Mike's promo video in which he plays multiple of the instruments as evidence that yes, indeed, they do serve a 'professional' purpose sometimes (also, for your own personal enjoyment)."
