...but it could be worse!

What Are the Odds?

Think you could hit a politician with a stray bullet fragment by aiming randomly in the air? Think employees of the health department would be the least likely to acquire food borne illness? Think a lawsuit against pornographers for psychological damage from watching porn could be successful? Think again! (Oh, and ease up on Mariah, ok?)

No Bad Deed Goes Unpublicized

While the rich get richer, the poor rob them in Paris. In Paris, Royale with Cheese is what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese at McDonald’s. In a certain McDonald’s drive-through, they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese “whatever the **** I feel like giving you”. “Whatever the **** I feel like giving you” may turn into “Oops! I didn’t mean to give you that!” if you insist on shaving down there, or at least that’s what the headline says to get you to read about a boring study that shows no evidence to back up the claims. There’s no evidence to back up our claim that someone actually reads these blurbs and listens to this podcast, yet Tin Can let’s us make them anyway because it’s going to make us rich and richer.

100% Unemployment – Paradise or Disaster?

Jobs are disappearing. Technology is advancing so fast that the need for people in the workforce is dwindling at an alarming rate. Should we be celebrating or terrified?

Life Is Hard Meets Tin Can

The Life is Hard podcast has a new home in Tin Can Media! We’re super excited to be added to the Tin Can family!

On the upcoming show, we discuss the most terrifying event to happen to this country since the Civil War – the discovery of a millipede with four penises! No, of course we’re adding our five cents (inflation) to the election coverage. Plus, we reveal our real names. Oh, and the Tin Can gig comes complete with a producer (which we desperately needed) so we drag her into the conversation too. A good time is had by all, as long as your idea of a good time is figuring out all the ways in which we are totally screwed.


We’ll be back soon with a new episode unless the Earth is destroyed in the mean time. Have a great day!

(Are we charged extra for exclamation points? I hope not…)
