    It's another annual PRE-SUPER BOWL PARTY! We've got a sweet lineup for you: Pre-Super Bowl Party virgins The Jelly Project, Pre-Super Bowl Party veterans RapeDoor, and the perpetrators of prodigious previous Pre-Super Bowl parties, Primadonahue and Well Trained Monkey. It's free, it's big ridiculous over the top fun just like the Super Bowl itself, and we're going to bring it to you at Wild Tymes, Saturday February 1st. Be there, and we'll bring down the house, just like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAyLX2hY7E0

Q: I just listened to Lightning Round does this mean I just won a new fine Kaarinthan Leather Coach?

A: Yes! Congratulations contestant number one! This fine leather couch provides a perfect landing pad for when the producers pull the lever that drops you down the chute into the underground volcanic River of Doom! (Oh, if only it floated)...! But as an added bonus, here's a paddle! Good luck!
