Primarily based on the field workplace receipts, most of you who noticed Suicide Squad this month did so at residence, on HBO Max. However for these of us who braved the outside and went to see James Gunn’s DC superhero extravaganza most likely had a heated inside dialogue about whether or not or to not eat throughout one of many grossest films of 2021.
Most of these disgusting scenes concerned King Shark, a CGI monster creation that has developed a style for human flesh. There’s additionally 1000’s of filthy rats, a large starfish that squirts infants from its armpits, human beings ripped in half, and a head that’s used like a wad of bubble gum. Exhausting to have an urge for food after a few of these scenes. Happily for us, we discovered two individuals who don’t have any downside consuming underneath any circumstances.
This week’s episode of Galaxy Brains includes a dialog with comedians and quick meals specialists Nick Wiger and Mike Mitchell of the Doughboys podcast. We talk about Suicide Squad’s grossest moments, plus do a deep dive into the culinary choices at your native multiplex.
As traditional, this dialog has been edited and condensed to be much less bizarre.
Dave: How do you justify consuming throughout a film this disgusting?
Mitch: Nice query. It makes me hungrier.
Dave: You get hungrier once you see a man’s head explode or a speaking shark ripping somebody in half.
Mitch: I simply want…
Dave: To have a hoagie.
Mitch: There is sort of a very gratuitous second and it’s the place the shark does eat a human head.
Dave: He’s chewing that factor for like 20 minutes.
Mitch: Yeah. He’s like gnawing on a head. That’s about as gross because it will get. However I’ve sadly by no means been bothered by seeing gross stuff. It’s by no means actually bothered me an excessive amount of. Yeah. I feel a part of the I feel simply being a disgusting individual makes it simpler, like in case you simply already are inherently disgusting, like that enables me to eat one thing disgusting whereas I’m watching one thing disgusting and there’s no contradiction.
Dave: So it sort of relaxes you to see a shark gnawing on a head like a Charleston Chew sweet.
Mitch: With the eyes nonetheless twitching. Sure. That’s the factor that actually places it excessive.
Nick: Yeah. He’s like trying up. He’s like realizing what occurred. It’s. Yeah, it’s loads. Proper. The DMT hasn’t hit but.
Dave: While you went to the theater, what did you guys eat?
Nick: I obtained nachos. Folks get so mad as a result of I don’t like popcorn. And an enormous a part of that for me is I don’t like being greasy and like sitting alone. As disgusting as I’m, I don’t like being greasy in a movie show, having greasy palms and a greasy face. And the opposite factor is like, I hate having something caught in my tooth. I do know that’s fairly common, however with me specifically, I can’t give attention to the rest. So if I’m making an attempt to look at a film, , for 120 minutes and I’ve obtained a kernel caught between a few my molars, I can’t. I’m like I’m fully out of it. So popcorn is normally no for me.
Dave: I usually assume that nacho cheese at baseball video games or film theaters is akin to butter, that it’s extra like somebody’s drizzled butter on chips than the tangy sharpness of actual cheese. You don’t really feel that’s an issue?
Mitch: No, I positively is such as you dip a chip into some margarine, however I’m OK with that. It’s slightly trace of cheese. It’s sort of obtained that savory tacky character to it. Right here’s what I’ll say concerning the AMC movie show nachos specifically. So first off, they’re supplying you with the Tostitos Rounds Minis. So these all match very cleanly into the dipping cup. You don’t ever have a problem the place like, oh my my chip is breaking as a result of this triangle is slightly too large to get in right here or, , getting a partial dip. That’s fairly unsatisfying for the floor space of the chip. You’re getting an awesome correct dip with each single chip with the Tostitos Rounds. After which additionally they provide you two dipping sauce cups once you actually solely want one for that amount of chips, which I like. Give me extra. Give me an excessive amount of sauce. Like if I’m having chips and guacamole, I need an excessive amount of guac. I don’t wish to run out of guac and have surplus chips. And that’s precisely what they did with the film nachos.
Dave: Have you ever ever considered pouring the cup onto the chips after which no matter the rest you will have left, you dip?
Mitch: Yeah, the cereal milk method. The difficulty there may be extra simply messiness, like I discussed earlier, particularly within the context of a movie show. I don’t need it to be gooey or sticky in there. That’s an issue. That’s an issue.
Dave: Hold it clear.
Mitch: I used to be going to say this to Nick. I might relatively have extra dip to cowl all of the chips. However there’s something very satisfying with you ending the dip along with your final chip. That’s perfection. That’s the dream.
Nick: Yeah, that’s what ought to occur.
