"Boys in the House" was originally released on September 3, 2013.
Fair warning: This week's episode contains more esoteric references than usual, so we'd recommend Wikipediaing the following subjects before wading in: A Boy and His Blob, Metal Gear, ANTM 2.0, Rick Moranis' Poutine Addiction. (Also, apologies for the audio quality. Travis had to record during a tech rehearsal, meaning he literally is inside a Shop-Vac for the duration of the episode.)

04:28 - Ever since I was little my parents have maintained a multi-pet household. Almost all of the animals have lived long, healthy lives. The only animals my parents are apparently aren't adept at caring for are parakeets, since these tend to pass away relatively early (within a few years, if that). The problem is my parents keep getting parakeets. Brothers, how do I politely inform my parents that they should stop trying to care for these tiny birds, and instead focus their attentions on animals they can actually care for? Is there a graceful way to go about doing this? Sincerely, Flummoxed In Philly

16:55 - My wife and I were listening to Islands in the Stream by country legends Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton. It is a fantastic song, but we're really bothered by the line, "I set out to get you with a fine-tooth comb." Help us think of some better lyrics that don't sound like someone has lice. -- Lyrically-Challenged Ladies Of DC

Ideas for Metal Gear Solid Themed Wedding?
Last time I said I was just having a video game themed wedding, but me and my fiancee decided to go full out Metal Gear Solid because we both love it and it actually brought us closer together.
But here's the sitch, we need help with ideas and stuff.

I know the game revolves around military stuff but we're not planning a Military wedding, we need more than that.
What budget should we set for?

On Parakeet Wizards Edit
- “'I will have six parakeets.' Nope. Nope, you won't. I definitely sold you parakeets on Tuesday, so are you a magician? Are you a shitty wizard? What's going on? Are you transforming them into humans to live out human lives? Probably not.”
