Watch “Octocare” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 149: “Like a Lemon to a Lime, a Lime to a Lemon”

May 9, 2012

So the Octomom is doing porn. And Artemis Pebdani is in the cast so she can reprise her great characterization of Nadya Suleman. But you don’t want to make a cast member do anything tawdry. The solution? Have the Octomom take a job where she can show off her “stellar” child care skills!

I’m also really proud of the way we addressed the passing of Adam Yauch in this week’s show. Rather than do a sketch on it (not really feasible since the news broke after our submission deadline) or do a joke (which seemed inappropriate), all of our interstitial music in the show was by the Beastie Boys. I even used the opening bars of “Sabotage” to open the show in place of our usual opening. And what better way to pay tribute to a great musician, than with his music?
