Loved that invention exchange!
11 September 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This is a great episode even though the riffs themselves weren't that good. I never pay that much attention to the invention exchange, but this was an exception. It's weird how one of the most memorable of these actually came from Mike. He had a cow refrigerator that dispensed different kinds of milk (and crushed ice) out of cow udders! I really found that amusing. I also love the cow tipping gag they then do. The viewer mail was really funny as it just featured someone asking questions over and over.

It's cool to have a much more recent movie for them to riff on. It's weird, but I really do like how they showed the credits for the movie. You got some really funny comments and tons of references to chick flicks I had never heard of before. My favorite line in this might have been, "It's easier without you" followed by, "It usually is". For some reason, I liked the jokes with the worms, like "Get your ice cold worms!" and "I didn't ask for bacon on my worm sandwich!". Another good one was, "I never said I wasn't interested" followed by, "I implied it, sure". ***1/2
