I've been listening to the show for a while now...every episode...every week. I guess I just know Pete's humor, and I know when he's making a joke, which was certainly the case here. The complaint is supposed to sound serious because it sets up the joke.
I have been listening to the show for a long time now and I don't think Pete would ever intentionally say or do anything to hurt anyone's feelings. My family and I had the pleasure of meeting Pete at the GKTW meet in Virginia last year and he was as gracious and accommodating in person as he is on the show. Keep up the good work you do Pete!

Yeah, Pete has a sarcastic sense of humor. Personally, I understood it as a joke...but I could see how someone might misinterpret it. No big deal.

I listened to it yesterday, and if you didn't know the parties involved, it did come of as harsh...but I know both sides and Pete was teasing...

I listened this morning and I have to agree with the op AND everyone else. I have listened long enough to assume it was all sarcasm, and wasn't offended, BUT it really didn't come across that way in the recording for whatever reason.

Have not yet downloaded and listened to it, but I def am looking forward to it. I love the humor and understand the sarcasm ("Mythos").
I was driving home from work today and almost crashed my car listening to the podcast about the Nova Scotia GKTW event

So flipping funny

thank you

I want to thank Pete for this weeks rant. I was having a really "crappy" day and the podcast made me regret drinking water over my keyboard. I watched several of my staff walk by my office to check on me because I couldn't stop laughing. Thank you for making my day lighter.

I've thought about this thread a bit more today and have decided to re-open it for discussion.

Both positive and negative criticism of the podcast are welcome on this board (this has always been the case).

However, please remember that there are real people behind screen names. Please keep comments constructive and not sarcastic or argumentative as this violates our guidelines.

I never even gave it a thought. Knew Pete was kidding.


I have to say I laughed SO hard at Kevin's Hoarders beep beep beep. OMG, hilarious! I'm sure I looked like a fool because I was out walking while I listened, snorting with laughter every time I heard beep in the background.

Ok... I listened to it. Mildly funny, a bit gross, but nothing to get worked up about.
I forgot about Olestra. And people with diabetes can enjoy candy with sugar (in controlled amounts of course) if they keep their blood sugar in control.

I think the Disupluged podcast is somewhat like the Howard stern show in a way poel listen to it not just for the info but sometimes just the hear what Pete will say next.

Also Kevin, John or Teresa (Great Big ball of Mickey) for that matter. On the Teresa front, I still play the Kathy's visit to Legoland and just laugh hysterically.

I think that a warning on this podcast should be included.

WARNINGPodcast may make you laugh hysterically and make your co-workers wonder why you are dying of laughter.

I could see how things were said could be misunderstood or the joke wasn't understood, so give the original poster a break.

Most on the boards know about the crew's humor especially if they have listened for a while.
