Merry Crimbas y'all. On today's episode of The Broken Anchor Podcast, the boys talk about their Christmas weekends and all the goodies they got.

Ed Sheeran dropped a new song and Ben is NOT A FAN, for some reason. Would you rathers include: would you rather use eyedrops made of vinegar or sandpaper for toilet paper, and would you rather have Chinese handcuffs or your shoes tied together for a full year?

Happy Monday, people. AWESOME episode coming through for you guys today.

We'll then get into Joe's reaction from Saturday's debacle of a game between Notre Dame and Clemson, and Ben freaks out over Charlie Woods and his breakout round with his dad (Tiger) watching. Would You Rathers include fighting a round against Mike Tyson or having Mike Tyson's lisp forever, and having rudolph's nose or elf's ears for the rest of your life. Shower thoughts: shells are just fraudulent rocks, if you think about it. Let's go have the best week of all time.

The would you rather segment is also back with a couple of WILD questions asked by the Mainstays. Would you rather lick someone's bare toe or their bare armpit after a workout, and would you rather never have to sleep again or never have to go to the bathroom again?

We asked you guys to send us some Would You Rather questions, and you DID NOT disappoint!

Ep. 25: Dom's Last Episode, Asians Don't Have Sandwiches, And Our Thoughts On The Election
Yes, you read that correctly. Dom is sadly leaving the podcast for now, so we decided to talk about that head-on and remember some of his best moments he had with us. We're absolutely going to miss him, as I'm sure you guys will, too. We'll also get into the election and how polarized the country has become, which is a pretty serious discussion, but a great one we're all really proud of and happy we had. AND THEN, we get back into the usual tone of the podcast when we come to the realization that the Asian population doesn't really eat sandwiches for some reason. Think about it. Let's go have the best week of all time.

Aliens Don't Want The Smoke, Are Ghosts Actually Real, Underrated Holidays, and Slept-On Halloween Candy
All-time episode coming through today guys. So it starts off pretty solid with everyone giving their thoughts on Halloween and how whoppers might be the most slept-on halloween candy in the game. Then we get into a time where Ben and Dom went into Olive Garden and ate a whole meal in costumes not on Halloween. Then Joe drops a take that Aliens have been here, they've seen humans, and they are afraid of us. I'll let you guys listen to the rest so I don't spoil it. Probably my favorite episode we've had so far. Enjoy. Let's go have the best week of all time.

We had a great conversation with him that starts right around the 7:30 mark.

We also need to settle whether Dom can give us the secret word from last week's podcast, we need to determine when Ben is doing the Blazin' Challenge from BDubs because he lost the Lakers-Blazers bet, and since Joe does not have to drink his own pee, Dom made him bet on something else.
