Hour of Slack #1746 - Uncle Onan and Dr. Hal Put the Odd in Audio


We got back to our Texas HQ with all our final wave of stuff last week, but were so busy unpacking and rearranging and reinstalling ourselves that ol' Rev. Stang plumb forgot to post the canned show on Wednesday!

"What wrestling is to violence, and what pornography is to sex, The Church of the SubGenius is to religion." -- Onan. This is one of those rare episodes that proves that smart SubGeniuses actually exist, or at least SubGenii who SEEM very smart. That's because it's mostly Uncle Onan Canobite and Dr. Hal, although Stang and Rev. Fanboy have important bit parts. The discussion is much loftier than listeners might be used to. This "talk show" part was recorded in 2017 at the 22nd X-Day Drill, known as "20 X-Day." (The SubGenius Event Numbering System can be challenging to beginners and geniuses.) At the head and tail of the brainy discussion are brand new experimental (or just plain mental) earhole-kissing songs by The Liberty Tubes, Fat Little Bastard and Superhornet.

NOTE: THE HOUR OF SLACK is released in two versions.

The X-RATED "INTERNET VERSION" contains all original "fucks," "shits," "God damns," etc., and this is the one which is downloadable from SubSITE and which is sent to individual subscribers OR non-American radio stations.

All American radio stations (except WORT, Madison) are sent the "PG RATED CENSORED VERSION," which has the Bad Words either reversed, bleeped, or replaced with the spoken word "Bob", depending on what works best.

The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry seeks to brainwash you totally into abject lifelong subservience to The High Epopt and Living SlackMaster, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
