"I've got you by the balls. An uncomfortable situation for both of us.... but one I'm going to savor."

"Mine's a potato martini. Serve it cold."

"Tiptoeing elephants? Come on guys, give it up. I can see you! You're huge!"

Karen's notes: I had recorder issues last night. Adam was chattering away for a while before I looked over and realized that the batteries had died in the night. I changed them and caught these, but I was pretty gutted over whatever I had missed. Something about leathery toad soup.


  1. Thank you so much for changing the audio players. It now means I can listen on my phone! I'm going to treat myself this morning and listen to some old ones I haven't been able to listen to before. It's made my morning! Thanks :)

  2. I love how he whines about the elephants!

  3. have to agree with shawna on the elephants =D.

    this player doesnt seem to work in google reader. at least its not working for me =/.

  4. It's so good to be able to listen to the audio on my iPod instead of having to wait to use the computer. Tiptoeing elephants rule!

  5. Anonymous (right before this) - that's why I added the direct link as well. It's not graceful, but at least everyone should be able to hear it now.

  6. A potato martini sounds like my partner's kind of drink. I wonder how you make one.

  7. karen, yeah its either that or going in here.
    its not a big problem i guess ;)

  8. lol another elephant sleep talk. he sounds really slow when he says, you're huge!

    Maybe the leathery toad soup had something to do with the potato martini. :P Another great night STM! Thanks!

    lol @ the elephant comment haha...

  10. "An uncomfortable situation for both of us..." Fantastic!

  11. I love how he sounds like a james bond villain sometimes.

  12. Presumably your English husband would *savour* the situation.

  13. Love the "uncomfortable situation" comment....Now THAT needs to be on a mug!

  14. Is there a wall adapter compatible for your recorder? Just plug that bad boy in and no more battery issues. :)

  15. I wonder if you shake or stir a potato martini?

  16. Some gin is made from potatoes, so....well, does he know this?

  17. i hate to say this but on my mac with firefox... audio's not happy... but the alternative link works - thanks for all the laughter

  18. Leathery toad soup!!! Hahahahahaha.

  19. I think Adam has an alter dream ego... someone akin to James Bond....

  20. Potato martinis aren't so far-fetched; you're just supposed to make vodka from them first.

    I prefer mine mashed, not fried.

  22. good stuff. sucks about the leathery toad soup. that was probably classic.

  23. Was it leathery toad soup, or leathery *toed* soup? As in the soup had leathery toes? And if the uncomfortable situation snippet was on a mug, I think I would have to purchase it for my girlfriend.

    Thanks for the laughs!

  24. rofl... Brilliant!

  25. ha ha ha ha!
    I love how he says the elephant
    one on the audio!
    He says it with such feeling!

    ...coming up...a storybored from a midnight summers dream...

    at the Bollywood-Safari Ball on this day...much was going topsyturvy in a tipsy way with everyone and everything tiptoeing with tulips on hand, in the air and weaving thru hair wishing well wishes beauquet'd everywhere...

    even truckin' in elephants behind the curtains as special opening act was a bit of a giveaway when a dozin'hecklin' STM man in the pre-audience show couldn't help but belch out a humungas fact that stompin' and shakin' the rafters was nothing but somethin' real HUGE and a success to a festive night...roaring with a sighne; thumbsup.

    speciallly since downin' a cocktail mixture augratin-pototo on hand geared for that elephants' specialty-soup concoction - - was 5 fingered discounted in a cooltallglass underjacket, savoring every miniute of this special nite, martiniesqued with bubbletea dumplings.

    A charity function, somewhat disfunctional to say the least, yet a great effort overall, with the company it keeps...

    ball this, balling that, there was bawling and eyeballing it all...grabbing the attention-whention, ready or not, there it goes; here it went...handfulls of jugglin' acts meshed with stiff collars and starched shirts all stuffed with stuff..stuff...and more stuff.

    not to mention the martiniman, who started pot-at-toes to make elephants tiptoe on cold coals was just a glimpse i can see...there was batting lashes and batteries, that's batter-ease when not included; in the light stiks option to sway the night away

    desuaded or not, this storyboard on the fly...trapezin'it out the back door, before the booooooozs, an uncomfyness, for the heck of it, too cool for comfort to hackeled, smackeled and whackeled in a zany night based on an STM dream sequence gone outta control and into the www of it all, weely.weely.wierd-it'twas, that night in Bally ---

    cocktailing the nightlife in leathers and teatoadling with a cool onion glass garnish in hand, chitchattering aboot in record numbers, a gut feeling it ensued in record time...a marvel to Martinez, bartendre concoction specialle

  27. Yes, so Doctor Sleeptalk has Bond by the balls......

    I'd like to see how 007 managed to penetrate his hideout deep in the Subconscious..... the scenes with the vampire penguins and werepig guards should *alone* be worth the price of admission...... 7@=e

  28. I'm getting a picture of tiptoeing elephants, cartoon-style, trying to get past Adam as he sleeps and being caught out ~ hysterical!!!! Thanks for the great imagery, Adam. :-)

  29. I LOVE the tiptoeing elephants one!!! I may be in the minority, but I get the biggest laughs out of the silliest ones. "You're huuuuge...." It's SO cute!

    Though I have to say that picturing double-O gadgetry in a battle with the v-guins and w-pigs is very, very fun. Thanks LA/wts!

  30. I LOVE "Tiptoeing elephants"! And Google Reader gives me a link to the sound file, which works nicely. Thanks, Karen, and sweet dreams, Adam.

  31. Hi Karen and Adam. I've been reading for a while and LOVE the site and will be doing plenty of holiday shopping with you. As a fan of all sorts of nonsense, the site makes me snarf my coffee at least three times a week (I know - you'd think I'd learn). But "Tiptoeing elephants" caused an actual mini-meltdown. The more I tried not to laugh, the more I did, until I suddenly found myself surrounded by co-workers who thought I was choking on my bagel. So, thanks for that, I guess. Seriously, that happened, and seriously, I LOVE the site. As Willy Wonka says: "A little nonsense now and then, is treasured by the wisest men." Keep up the good work.

  32. Tiptoeing elephants?! I love that he makes a reference back to this later when he's talking about the ninjas. It's amazing that a lot of his dreams all tie in!

  33. Cool. I always benefit from the interview. Thanks for having one of these website
