Bobby and Katie are dating and like many young couples are at odds over towels. But unlike most domesticated disputes of the household variety, these towels serve a higher, almost divine purpose. To their fans, the Pittsburgh Steelers have a place amongst the heavens - the most memorable play in Steelers history is called the Immaculate Reception! Just as the many religions of the world have their own iconography, so too does Steeler Nation in the form of the “Terrible Towel.”
Bobby has become a Steelers fan within the past year and a half he’s been dating Katie. Bobby purchased a towel (the proceeds go towards an autism charity) and feels that once it’s yours and the money has gone on the charity, you are free to do what you want with it. He also asserts that his love for the Pittsburgh Steelers is no less than those ordained from birth.
Katie, being born into the Steeler family, has the utmost respect and pride for the Towel. She offers that the towel is more than a foam finger or a pom-pom, and that the towel and the history of the franchise are one in the same. Its disrespect in any way is an affront to the team and the charity it supports.
So, should the towel be treated as a weaving of fabrics meant to absorb liquids or as a sacred object of one of football’s most historic franchises? Only one man has the secular fortitude to decide on the next Judge John Hodgman!
Eddie Pepitone takes a constitutional and joins Jordan and Jesse to discuss the antiques roadshow, Jordan's hot wings addiction and the alarming red flag that is a Hello Kitty Collection. Take a moonlight walk and Let's Go!
Jesse's pick for this week, the anthem "F--- 'Em" from Bay Area rapper
Chris Lilley, the Australian comedian and showrunner, talks about his new series Angry Boys.

Lilley plays six characters, occasionally side by side, a natural continuation of his work in the acclaimed Summer Heights High. You can catch Angry Boys on HBO on Sunday nights.
