CHELSEY:

Hello!

TREY:

Hi there.

TREY:

Welcome to Review That Review.

TREY:

This is episode 10 of the podcast dedicated to reviewing...

CHELSEY:

Unbelievable.

CHELSEY:

...reviews!

CHELSEY:

We're just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of reviewing cinematic masterpieces, we

TREY:

That's Chelsey Donn.

CHELSEY:

And that's Trey Gerrald.

TREY:

Or in the words of friend of the pod HammondCheeseSandWitch, that's Tracy and I'm Che,

VOICEOVER:

The Review Queens.

TREY:

How's that crown today, Tracy.

CHELSEY:

Well, Che.

CHELSEY:

My, my crown is great today.

CHELSEY:

yeah, I'm holding my crown high.

CHELSEY:

How's your crown today?

TREY:

My crown is good.

TREY:

You know, I had a really spectacular weekend away.

TREY:

My husband and I were celebrating.

TREY:

This is funny to me because I remember when we first started dating, I was a

TREY:

We were like consciously being together one day at a time.

TREY:

So we would celebrate monthly anniversaries, but I would need coverage every now and then.

TREY:

And the other waiters would be like, oh, it's the anniversary!

TREY:

Thinking it was like years or something, not actual months.

TREY:

So then like everyone made fun of me after a while because they're like,

TREY:

So we went away to Ogunquit, Maine, which is where we met 11 years ago.

TREY:

It was amazing.

TREY:

We stayed at this gorgeous AirBnB.

TREY:

We waited a little too long...

TREY:

it's like a small little place.

TREY:

So a lot of the stuff was taken.

TREY:

And so we stumbled upon, we were the first people to stay in this gorgeous Airbnb in Wells,

TREY:

And I just want to give it a shout out because we were the first to stay there.

TREY:

It's the quiet three bedroom beach cabin getaway.

TREY:

And the host is Samantha it's in Wells, Maine.

TREY:

It was just the two of us and our two dogs, but this was the only option.

TREY:

And last minute.

TREY:

It was so perfect.

TREY:

Like it was this three bedroom, but it was a really small cabin.

TREY:

So it didn't feel like we were in this mansion and they were just awesome

TREY:

And they knew we were bringing our dogs.

TREY:

So they put out a little dog bowl, which was so cute.

TREY:

Um, it was really great.

TREY:

I actually missed you.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

A lot.

TREY:

I was telling David, this is like the first time I've wanted to return from a vacation

TREY:

So I'm so happy to be here.

TREY:

How are you, Chelsey?

TREY:

How was your week?

CHELSEY:

Oh, my God.

CHELSEY:

First of all, I missed you a lot too.

CHELSEY:

I was like trying not to be a codependent and allow you to have your anniversary weekend.

CHELSEY:

So I just want you to know it was a lot of effort, but I did a few also.

CHELSEY:

Yeah, I've had a good week.

CHELSEY:

I just got a brand new puppy, which is very exciting and very exhausting in all the ways.

CHELSEY:

So I don't sleep anymore.

CHELSEY:

So we're just going to have to let that go, but she's worth it cause she's really cute.

TREY:

And what is your puppy's name?

CHELSEY:

My puppy's name is Goldie and maybe we'll...

TREY:

We're cheering for Goldie!

CHELSEY:

Aw, We're cheering for Goldie.

CHELSEY:

She's named after Goldie Hawn, but she's Goldie Donn.

TREY:

David asked me how you came up with the name Goldie.

TREY:

And I was like, I haven't asked actually.

CHELSEY:

Yeah, I love, I'm like the biggest Goldie Hawn fan ever, always like, love her so much.

CHELSEY:

In fact, my friends came over to meet Goldie and we had to decide which Goldie

TREY:

What'd you pick?

CHELSEY:

Just in Goldie's honor!

CHELSEY:

We picked, House Sitter it's it's Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin.

CHELSEY:

And it's, it's not as, I guess, like it's not as mainstream, but it's just

CHELSEY:

And she's just amazing in everything that she does so she could do no, no wrong in my book.

CHELSEY:

And Steve Martin, it's like Steve Martin at his best, like second to Father of the Bride for me.

CHELSEY:

It was fun.

CHELSEY:

We enjoyed it.

CHELSEY:

We had a great time.

CHELSEY:

I think Goldie liked it.

CHELSEY:

She didn't, she didn't complain.

CHELSEY:

So...

TREY:

Overboard was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

TREY:

We used to watch it relentlessly.

TREY:

Well, congratulations on Goldie.

TREY:

I know that Goldie has entered your life in a very wonderful time and we are very happy that

CHELSEY:

Yes, she's the head of security.

CHELSEY:

So she's going to keep an eye out for us.

CHELSEY:

I think that we should probably...

VOICEOVER:

Lodge A Complaint.

CHELSEY:

Trey, do you have a complaint to lodge today?

TREY:

Oh boy, do I ever.

CHELSEY:

Can't wait.

TREY:

So, I mentioned, we went to Ogunquit, Maine.

TREY:

Ogunquit, historically, was known as a safe haven for LGBTQ people and families.

TREY:

So that is always wonderful.

TREY:

And that still exists today.

TREY:

And there is this like deconsecrated church.

TREY:

So that just means it was one, it was built as a Methodist church and it...

CHELSEY:

and now it's a bingo hall?

TREY:

Well, it's been stripped of all of its holiness, which has

CHELSEY:

Oh, like there's actually a process for that.

TREY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

Oh, wow.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

TREY:

I don't know what it is, but I'm sure it's similar to The Exorcist.

CHELSEY:

...Like, before it becomes like a bowling alley or something

TREY:

Exactly.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

So this previous church is now a gift shop.

TREY:

And it's in the middle of town and you know, it's a two lane street and the name and they sell

TREY:

And the name of the church, ex-church gift shop.

TREY:

Do you have any guesses what they've named it?

CHELSEY:

What they've named the gift shop?

TREY:

Like if you were going to take an old church building, it has a huge clock tower.

TREY:

It's like a steeple.

TREY:

It's totally a church.

TREY:

What would you name it?

CHELSEY:

Holy Gifts.

TREY:

Cute.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

So they have named it Revelations.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

TREY:

Cute.

TREY:

That's a cute name.

TREY:

We were seated at a restaurant, which was across the street, so it kept

TREY:

There's a huge missed opportunity here.

TREY:

This is like a gay, friendly place.

TREY:

Everyone has gay flags everywhere.

TREY:

Why was it not called Leviti-Gifts?

CHELSEY:

Why?

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

You're Jewish.

TREY:

So that joke doesn't land on you.

CHELSEY:

No, but Leviticus is one of the, is the old Testament.

CHELSEY:

So like I know Leviticus, roughly.

TREY:

So, leviticus is like the one section of the Bible where people point to say that homosexuality

TREY:

or...

TREY:

should not lay with...

TREY:

man shall not lay with mankind as they do with womankind.

TREY:

You know, also famously like the next verse is like don't mix fabrics,

CHELSEY:

Right.

TREY:

So anyway, I think...

CHELSEY:

But we ignore those cause that's not important.

TREY:

Well, duh.

TREY:

But I think that there's a huge opportunity that's been missed.

TREY:

This should be called Leviti-Gifts.

TREY:

I kept saying it over and over and over.

CHELSEY:

Oh, Leviti - GIFTS!.

TREY:

Oh yeah, did I not pronouncate?

CHELSEY:

No, I, yes.

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

I heard Leviticus, but Leviti-Gifts makes more sense.

TREY:

I lthink Leviti-Gifts is such a better name because this is a gay area.

TREY:

They would go to Leviti-Gifts and they would get a nice shawl or like a

TREY:

So anyway, my complaint this week is, if I am ever going to frequent a gift shop, in a gay friendly

TREY:

I don't want its name to be anything other than Leviti-Gifts.

TREY:

Otherwise you're wasting my pun and humor time.

TREY:

The end.

CHELSEY:

Well, I think at very least you should have given them the opportunity.

CHELSEY:

Like, did you tell them that this maybe they would be open to a rebrand?

TREY:

Well, I really did think about that and I've, I've looked them up.

TREY:

They do have a website, revelationsgiftshop.com.

TREY:

And I'm gonna see if I can reach out to them.

TREY:

Oh, there's a whole contact form.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

I think you should reach out at very least, like maybe they can do like a Leviti-Gifts event.

CHELSEY:

Like would that.

CHELSEY:

Would that help?

TREY:

Well, I did say to David, I think maybe like this should be my, like hobby now.

TREY:

Like I should just go across the country and find churches that are no longer functioning

CHELSEY:

Yes.

TREY:

But I don't think I'm really gonna anytime soon..

CHELSEY:

GAY Gift Shops, which will definitely D what is it, consecrate them?

TREY:

Mmm-hmm.

TREY:

Yeah, there's a, there's a church that was turned into a home in Key West, but that's like a house

TREY:

Like in Key West or maybe in Fire Island, if there's like a, an old church, I don't really

TREY:

You could paint a side of the wall like that pink wall in LA, where

TREY:

It'd be a whole thing.

TREY:

Anyway, that's my complaint.

TREY:

It's been lodged.

TREY:

And, um, please, please, please.

TREY:

If you have a gift shop, that's an old church.

TREY:

Please rename it Leviti-Gifts.

CHELSEY:

And give Trey a little credit at the same time.

TREY:

You don't even have to give me credit.

TREY:

You don't, I don't even need it.

TREY:

I just need that to be rectified in the world.

TREY:

Chelsey, what about you?

TREY:

What is your complaint for the week?

CHELSEY:

Okay, so my complaint is, you know, like when you go on a website and

CHELSEY:

I think I always land just shy.

CHELSEY:

Like, I'll be like $2 short of the free shipping.

CHELSEY:

Right?

CHELSEY:

And then I'm like, well, is it worth it for me to spend like $6 for shipping?

CHELSEY:

Or like, would I prefer that $6 in the form of an item?

CHELSEY:

And now I have to scour your site for like an $8 item in order to really make this math work out.

CHELSEY:

And then I'm probably going to get something that I don't need.

CHELSEY:

And I just think, why can't we just give free shipping?

CHELSEY:

Like, I don't like free shipping minimums.

CHELSEY:

I feel like they're manipulative.

CHELSEY:

I think they're doing it on purpose.

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

Just stop it with this.

CHELSEY:

Do you have this problem?

CHELSEY:

Like when you're like a dollar away?

TREY:

I've noticed it with just minimums.

TREY:

Like when you're getting food delivery, like take out.

CHELSEY:

Exactly.

TREY:

It happens a lot where it's like.

TREY:

I have noticed many times you'll always be like a dollar to 75 cents off.

TREY:

And the cheapest thing is like a side of rice or like a side of broccoli.

TREY:

And that's always like going to put you up like $5.

TREY:

Like I do think that if someone is being strategic about this.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

It's definitely strategic.

CHELSEY:

Also.

CHELSEY:

Like I wish that they could keep track in a day.

CHELSEY:

Like my, you know, I have a new puppy, so I'll go on chewy.com and they'll have minimums

CHELSEY:

So then I want to just order that one thing.

CHELSEY:

But I can't because I have to fill up my cart and I just feel like I've

CHELSEY:

You're you don't, you could put it all in the same box.

CHELSEY:

Why?

CHELSEY:

Why, Why!

CHELSEY:

I'm lodging a complaint.

TREY:

You know, complaint heard.

CHELSEY:

Thank you.

TREY:

That is such a like common occurrence complaint.

TREY:

Like I have felt the same frustrations before, so I appreciate you voicing it.

CHELSEY:

Well, thank you.

CHELSEY:

I feel better now that they got that off my chest.

TREY:

I think I feel okay.

TREY:

I feel like maybe I could have spelled out Leviti-Gifts stronger, but regardless, let's

TREY:

How do you feel about that?

CHELSEY:

I feel great about that.

CHELSEY:

As you guys already know, if you're listening to episode 10, we are your trusty Review Queens.

CHELSEY:

We each bring in a review from the internet that we feel needs to be inspected.

TREY:

We read you the review, we break it down and then we rate the impact of the

TREY:

It's a very Regal process that we like to call

VOICEOVER:

Assess That Kvetch!

TREY:

And kvetch means complaint.

CHELSEY:

Uh, I'm kvelling, Trey!

CHELSEY:

You're Yiddish.

CHELSEY:

It gets better every week.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

Who is first today?

TREY:

You are, my gorgeous RQ.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

I'm first God.

CHELSEY:

Like I feel like my heart always starts to be whenever I realized that I am first, but yeah.

TREY:

You know what?

TREY:

You don't have to, you don't have to have an increased heartbeat because the worst that

TREY:

And then, you know what, then you take a breath and who cares?

TREY:

We're here to have fun.

CHELSEY:

You're right.

CHELSEY:

We are here for fun.

VOICEOVER:

Review That Review.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

My review this week is from Google.

CHELSEY:

It is a one-star review of Mav Lash in California.

CHELSEY:

This review is written by Jodi B.

CHELSEY:

I've been debating writing this for hours, but every time I walk

CHELSEY:

I wanted to be kind, but I'm really disappointed in my entire experience.

CHELSEY:

I did a lot of searching for what I wanted and who I should go to before booking my appointment.

CHELSEY:

But I have to admit how wrong I was.

CHELSEY:

My appointment was for a mixed set.

CHELSEY:

I picked this because I have naturally decent length lashes, but wanted them to

CHELSEY:

A set I can roll out without needing to wear mascara and liner makeup every day.

CHELSEY:

When I arrived, the tech called my name, but didn't introduce herself or anything.

CHELSEY:

I told the receptionist, and her, that I've never had lashes before.

CHELSEY:

And she asked to see some photos of what I wanted.

CHELSEY:

The pics we looked at were from the Mav Lash Instagram.

CHELSEY:

I pointed out what I liked and she said, 'so more natural' to which I agreed and also pointed

CHELSEY:

I told her I didn't want anything doll eyed or too lush.

CHELSEY:

I thought we were on the same page and I paid down and she began.

CHELSEY:

After about two hours, she finished.

CHELSEY:

And I asked to use the restroom before checking out.

CHELSEY:

Once in the bathroom, I took a glance in the mirror and was shocked.

CHELSEY:

They were so long and looked like one of those dolls that eyes close when you lay

CHELSEY:

When I came out, I immediately told her.

CHELSEY:

Her response was that she couldn't do anything about the length unless you took

CHELSEY:

I was devastated as I tried to ask what we could do.

CHELSEY:

She offered to take some of the fullness out of one that was heavier than the other.

CHELSEY:

I agreed to that, but honestly, didn't see much of a difference.

CHELSEY:

At that point I just wanted to leave.

CHELSEY:

I was hungry and really upset, but trying to still be nice.

CHELSEY:

I was hoping once I put on mascara on my lower lashes, that it would offset everything.

CHELSEY:

Now that I'm home, the mascara didn't help at all.

CHELSEY:

So I washed my face and literally a quarter of them fell right out.

CHELSEY:

I don't know if it's my face wash or what, since I was given no care

CHELSEY:

I'm getting really irritated that I paid close to $200 for this.

CHELSEY:

They look awful and I'm at the point of just pulling them all off myself in the morning.

CHELSEY:

Big disappointment.

CHELSEY:

Waste of my money, and very unhappy with how the tech handled it all.

CHELSEY:

My tech was Gensine.

TREY:

Is that the name?

TREY:

Gensine?

CHELSEY:

Yes.

CHELSEY:

G E N S I N E.

CHELSEY:

Would you pronounce that another way?

TREY:

No, I just didn't know if that was like a millennial term or something.

CHELSEY:

Oh, good, good clarification.

TREY:

Wow.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

Jodi B...

TREY:

wait, have you ever had eyelash extensions?

CHELSEY:

Not like the kind of eyelash extensions like this that are meant to last a long time?

CHELSEY:

I think for my sister's wedding, we did the, you know, like the makeup artists did the

CHELSEY:

So nothing like this.

TREY:

Right.

TREY:

Those are like little wispies.

CHELSEY:

Yes.

TREY:

Cause I have two friends that have had like these long-term eyelash extensions put on.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

TREY:

And I know that at least with those two girls it's commonplace that

CHELSEY:

fall off?

TREY:

Yeah, yeah.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

I had that thought too, like when she said a quarter of them fell off,

CHELSEY:

Like, is it one of those things where it sort of sheds after a while?

CHELSEY:

And then it starts to look more natural?

CHELSEY:

I honestly don't know.

CHELSEY:

And neither does Jodi.

TREY:

Uh, I, you know, I have a lot of thoughts here.

TREY:

It's interesting to me.

TREY:

Jodi B mentions that they have decent length eyelashes to begin with.

TREY:

So then my question is, well then why are you getting the service.

TREY:

I understand that there's like a middle ground.

TREY:

Like, you don't want to be a drag queen, but like you want it to look more full and natural.

TREY:

But yeah, but to me, I feel like that line is so specific to each individual that

CHELSEY:

Everybody's got one.

TREY:

Everybody's got one as Joe Kinosian beautifully wrote.

TREY:

But like, to me, I don't know.

TREY:

I feel like if I do think that there's like, um, a judgment snap that people might have,

CHELSEY:

I mean, like, I don't know.

CHELSEY:

I guess I'm less worried about the judgment snap.

CHELSEY:

Cause I figured it's just like, if you want it, like you rock it, you rock it.

CHELSEY:

But I think everybody looks better with a little mascara, you know?

CHELSEY:

And so I can understand saying like, oh, like it would be nice to have a little something extra

CHELSEY:

She pulled things specifically from their Instagram.

CHELSEY:

Like not another, not like random Instagram, like here's an example of work that

CHELSEY:

And then the person said like, oh, okay, I get it.

CHELSEY:

Like, you want something more natural?

TREY:

Not doll-like!

CHELSEY:

Like not doll-like specifically, and you know, maybe like a little bit of

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

I feel for, cause when I, I mean, this is a little bit of a non-sequitur, but when I was

CHELSEY:

Cause my sister was a blonde and she got highlights when she was younger and I

CHELSEY:

And I begged my mom to let me get highlights when I was in middle school and she'd begrudgingly

CHELSEY:

And I just remember being completely devastated, like that feeling of, of getting

CHELSEY:

Cause it's like, it's a weird thing.

CHELSEY:

You're like, what do I do?

CHELSEY:

Like how do I, how do I manage this?

CHELSEY:

Like I am upset and yeah.

CHELSEY:

I think that when you get services like that, you should be able to tell them

CHELSEY:

I just wish that, I mean, they didn't show her a mirror along the way.

CHELSEY:

Like, it just seems like in the two hour period that she, and again, I've never had

CHELSEY:

But during the, like, usually when you get your haircut or you get something

CHELSEY:

Like, is this you want it a little short?

CHELSEY:

Or do you want it a little longer?

CHELSEY:

Like, why weren't they checking in with her?

TREY:

I had that question too, because two hours is so long and also like, cause I

CHELSEY:

Check in after one eye and then it's like, oh, if we have to completely pivot, then

TREY:

And I would think that the technician is at fault for that.

CHELSEY:

Yeah, I do!

CHELSEY:

The fact that she had to go to the bathroom to see what was happening.

CHELSEY:

That's weird to me.

CHELSEY:

Isn't it weird?

TREY:

It is weird, also, conversely, because I've also been in a situation where like, now it's very

TREY:

And all I thought was, I look like Rosie O'Donnell and it was like, so upsetting.

TREY:

So, I understand when you get something done that does not feel like you and you have to face it.

TREY:

That's that is like very.

TREY:

Confronting and upsetting.

TREY:

So like I'm not judging that, but to me, I feel like eyelashes are so much less

CHELSEY:

Yes.

CHELSEY:

And no.

CHELSEY:

Like it's on your face, you know what I mean?

CHELSEY:

Like

TREY:

Eyes are the heart of the soul or whatever.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

Like with a haircut you can put a hat on, I guess worst comes to worse.

CHELSEY:

Well, couldn't you put sunglasses?.

TREY:

Right.

TREY:

That's what I was going say.

CHELSEY:

I guess.

CHELSEY:

But like, I mean, a hat is a 24 hour item, a sunglass, like, you know, you look

CHELSEY:

So..

TREY:

I, I do think that close to $200 is crazy.

TREY:

Especially if a quarter of them fell out.

TREY:

Like with the first time you washed.

TREY:

We're assuming that Jodi was not scrubbing and rubbing and freaking out

CHELSEY:

Which she might have been.

TREY:

Possibly.

TREY:

But you know what I mean?

TREY:

Here we are.

TREY:

Two of us.

TREY:

So neither of us have ever had this done.

TREY:

So odds are, you're probably going to encounter people that are novices to this process.

TREY:

So you would imagine that there would be a little conversation, especially when

TREY:

This is what I like.

TREY:

This is what I don't like, that you would assume there would be a check-in and

TREY:

It's not safe for me to trim these, but like we have to redo everything.

TREY:

Like that just seems obvious to me.

TREY:

So like, I don't fault the salon for that, but I do question why there was not a check-in.

TREY:

So, that would have like a little bit of, um, that would have a little, little lasting impact on me.

CHELSEY:

I agree.

CHELSEY:

Like, I don't understand why they didn't didn't give her instructions when she left.

CHELSEY:

It seems quite obvious to have a whole process that she was like a novice and

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

It just seems it definitely.

CHELSEY:

I want to validate Jodi B.

CHELSEY:

Cause it seems like some things were not handled properly.

TREY:

And I love that Jodi, it starts this by saying, I admit that I chose the mixed length

TREY:

They come, they don't start out being a victim.

TREY:

They don't say like, they were horrible to me.

TREY:

They say like, I might have mistakenly chosen the length, but I'm new with this.

CHELSEY:

Yeah, totally.

CHELSEY:

And like also that she was like, I've been debating writing this for hours, but every

CHELSEY:

Like I just, I, I kind of like, I feel for Jodi, like that sucks.

CHELSEY:

Like when you do something like this, you're doing it because you want to feel better about

CHELSEY:

And the fact that she did this and had the opposite reaction personally,

CHELSEY:

Like when I'm doing like laser on the face or like eyebrows or something like that.

CHELSEY:

I think I do pay a lot of attention to the reviews with stuff like that.

CHELSEY:

And I would definitely second guess whether or not I was going to go to

TREY:

That's interesting.

TREY:

What was the spelling and grammar like?

CHELSEY:

There were a lot of little mistakes.

CHELSEY:

It wasn't perfect.

CHELSEY:

It was long.

CHELSEY:

So she had a lot, to say, but there were little, like she said...

TREY:

Did you say paid down instead of laid?

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

So, she said I paid down and she began.

CHELSEY:

I mean, I'm assuming she meant that she like sat down.

CHELSEY:

I don't really know how that happens with autocorrect, but...

TREY:

I think they do lay you down though.

TREY:

Like...

CHELSEY:

Oh, maybe "laid down".

CHELSEY:

Oh yeah, that makes sense.

TREY:

But Jodi B has been crying, you know, they didn't have time to like go through

CHELSEY:

Corect, her eyes I'm sure were swollen.

CHELSEY:

I mean, they'd been like poked and prodded and now cried.

CHELSEY:

And washed and

TREY:

Not very humor...

TREY:

there wasn't a lot of humor here.

CHELSEY:

No, I, I mean, this was not a humorous, review.

CHELSEY:

This was, I think like a heartfelt, emotional dump in a way.

CHELSEY:

I feel like she's talking directly to the other people that also, maybe haven't

CHELSEY:

Like, I didn't really know what I wanted, but I thought I did research.

CHELSEY:

I thought I provided like photographic examples of what I wanted and, you

CHELSEY:

And I think that as someone that's newer to this, like I would be listening.

CHELSEY:

I'm listening to you, Jodi B for sure.

TREY:

Yeah.

TREY:

I think I can crown this.

CHELSEY:

Okay, let's crown it.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

So in an effort to be fair, Chelsey and I each have our own set of one to five crown cards.

TREY:

We will reveal our scores simultaneously so that we will not be impacted by the others review.

VOICEOVER:

The Queens are Tabulating.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

You ready?

CHELSEY:

I'm ready.

VOICEOVER:

Total score!

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

Interesting.

CHELSEY:

Trey is holding up three crowns and I am holding up four crowns.

CHELSEY:

Trey, tell us about your three crowns.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

So I chose three, very middle of the road, because I do actually very much believe Jodi B.

TREY:

I appreciate that they expressed where they felt they were responsible and were, you

TREY:

Not a lot of humor doesn't matter because that doesn't really affect my score that much.

TREY:

Uh, especially when it's very emotional.

TREY:

And I do believe the person Spelling is all over the place.

TREY:

You know, I, I did think that this is valuable.

TREY:

Only because I've never had this done.

TREY:

And so if I was going to, I would take from the review that I need to really spell out: okay.

TREY:

Y'all I need to check in with you this entire Orocess.

TREY:

I don't want to come out of here looking like a clown.

TREY:

Like let's be serious, although I am a drag queen lover.

TREY:

And so give me a 301.

TREY:

Give me crazy, crazy, crazy raccoon eyelashes.

TREY:

I love that.

TREY:

Look, I think nothing is more chic, but that isn't what Jodi wanted.

TREY:

And she seems to have felt...

TREY:

Jodi.

TREY:

They felt that that's what they walked out with.

TREY:

And so for that reason, the impact is I think I, um, I would, I would feel more armed with needing

TREY:

And so, for that reason, I gave it three.

TREY:

I gave it three.

TREY:

What about you?

CHELSEY:

I gave it four, which, as you know, for me as a pretty high score.

CHELSEY:

So I was a little bit surprised myself.

CHELSEY:

I was also...

CHELSEY:

I was alsolating between three and a half and four, to be honest, I was just putting myself in

CHELSEY:

And I appreciate her sharing her experience with me.

CHELSEY:

I took off also, you know, a crown for lack of humor and, the spelling

CHELSEY:

I thought about taking off another half crown because of what you said, like,

CHELSEY:

So maybe if I had done this all the time, I would feel differently.

CHELSEY:

Like I'm not that knowledgeable in the subject matter.

CHELSEY:

So, maybe that's worth a half crown if somebody else is like, oh, she should

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

But that's why I gave it him four because I believed her.

CHELSEY:

I believed it was honest.

CHELSEY:

And I think that I would definitely do a little bit more research before I would go to this place.

CHELSEY:

And maybe even before I would do this at all, so.

CHELSEY:

four crowns.

TREY:

Well said.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

Thanks.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

Sorry, Jodi B, I hope that it all works out for you

CHELSEY:

I'm sure they're out by now.

CHELSEY:

When did, when did Jodi B write this review?

CHELSEY:

A year ago!

CHELSEY:

So, um, I, I hope she's recovered.

TREY:

I wish Jodi B had submitted images so that I could take a look.

CHELSEY:

True.

CHELSEY:

Can you, I can't remember if you can submit images on Google reviews.

CHELSEY:

You can right?

TREY:

I think so.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

Well,

TREY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

TREY:

Well, Godspeed, Jodi B.

CHELSEY:

Yeah, best of luck to you.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

Let's take a quick break.

TREY:

And then when we come back, we can get into my review of the week.

CHELSEY:

Oh my God.

CHELSEY:

Can't wait.

VOICEOVER:

Hold your crown.

VOICEOVER:

We'll be right back.

TREY:

It's game time.

TREY:

All right, Chels, Chels, it's time for us to take a quick little spin on the

CHELSEY:

I like the fact that this could be like a glowing, like night.

CHELSEY:

Fantastic Meryl-Go-Round.

CHELSEY:

I think that that's nice.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

So here's the deal.

CHELSEY:

Trey and I have each picked a rotten scathing pithy one-star zinger and with

TREY:

Just like our Queen Meryl, who does it all!

CHELSEY:

Before the clock runs out.

TREY:

So this week, I have a one-star zinger from Google reviews for the Smile Direct

TREY:

And this is from Rachel T who says, please see a dental professional for orthodontic treatment.

TREY:

This needs to be monitored by a professional.

CHELSEY:

Hmm, I have to agree.

TREY:

Same.

CHELSEY:

All right, Trey.

CHELSEY:

Are you ready?

TREY:

I am ready!

TREY:

Gonna hop on!

CHELSEY:

Let's get started.

CHELSEY:

Please see, I've done a professional before I tell them to treat, man, this needs to be a

CHELSEY:

. Hey Michelle.

CHELSEY:

See a dental professional for orthodontic treatment that this needs to be

VOICEOVER:

super hero.

TREY:

I see it on professional.

CHELSEY:

I'm going to give you Superhero only because you were...

TREY:

I did my arms?

CHELSEY:

You were doing the most, like you didn't short end that at all, the opera

CHELSEY:

So I'm going to give that to you.

CHELSEY:

That's 1, 2, 3 that's 4 Trey.

CHELSEY:

Good job for a kind of long zinger.

TREY:

I know, I knew that it was like pushing, being pithy, but I just thought

TREY:

Okay, Chelsey, what is your, one star zinger for today?

CHELSEY:

That's a great question.

CHELSEY:

Trey.

CHELSEY:

My one star zinger is from RateMyProfessor.

CHELSEY:

It is for an economics professor at NYU written by ECONUA1 and it says terrible.

CHELSEY:

Absolutely terrible.

VOICEOVER:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

That's it.

TREY:

This is going to be fun.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

Are you ready to jump on?

CHELSEY:

Yes, I am ready.

TREY:

Teen drama.

CHELSEY:

Terrible.

CHELSEY:

Absolutely terrible

TREY:

magic show.

TREY:

Terrible,

CHELSEY:

absolutely terrible

TREY:

melodrama.

VOICEOVER:

Absolutely

TREY:

true crime documentary.

TREY:

Terrible.

TREY:

Absolutely

VOICEOVER:

terrible.

CHELSEY:

Absolutely terrible

TREY:

lifetime heroin.

CHELSEY:

Absolutely terrible.

CHELSEY:

I don't know they were all the same.

CHELSEY:

They were all.

CHELSEY:

That's how I always feel every time I do this.

CHELSEY:

So I'm like, I don't know the difference between lifetime and teen drama.

CHELSEY:

We did this to ourselves!

TREY:

When you did the magic, you did abracadabra hands.

TREY:

So I think that doesn't matter.

TREY:

It was, it was stimulating me.

TREY:

So this is six.

TREY:

You got six my Queen.

CHELSEY:

Thank you.

CHELSEY:

Wow

TREY:

Six versus four.

TREY:

Girl.

TREY:

You're the Queen.

CHELSEY:

I'm the Queen.

CHELSEY:

I'm the Queen!

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

I lost everything when I was a kid to my sister.

CHELSEY:

My sister would like, she was just very competitive and she would beat me at everything.

CHELSEY:

And so it's just sort of, it tickles me that, that I get to be a winner because

CHELSEY:

I was like, go ahead and win.

CHELSEY:

If it's not important to you, you know?

TREY:

Well, you never have to give up cause you're exceedingly great at this game.

TREY:

So congratulations.

CHELSEY:

Thanks Trey.

CHELSEY:

You're great too.

TREY:

Meh.

VOICEOVER:

Review that Review.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

Hey, we are back from that rousing game break, and now it is your turn, Trey.

CHELSEY:

Where is your review from this week?

TREY:

Oh boy.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

So this week I have a special review that was sent to me by a friend that

TREY:

This is from Yelp.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

TREY:

It is a two star review for a restaurant called Splash at the Boat

TREY:

This is from Craig N.

TREY:

I hate to give a joint two stars, but I simply couldn't ignore what

TREY:

I'll get to that in a moment.

TREY:

Backing up.

TREY:

My hot blonde German wife, and I decided to meet the best pilot I ever flew with.

TREY:

My buddy, Jeff and his wife, including their Chihuahua decided to fly their sea

TREY:

I thought what a better place for them to dock their $2.5 million machine but right there.

TREY:

After they got a ton of attention from this fly by and flawless landing, they joined us

TREY:

Let me tell you the positives first, our server was super awesome and our

TREY:

You know, it set the stage for a great night.

TREY:

We had about three rounds a piece, but to my astonishment, my best bud, Jeff downed

TREY:

Just a quick side note, Jeff, all caps hates seafood and has a reaction to it, but

TREY:

So it was when we were told this by our awesome wait staff dot dot dot, bless her heart.

TREY:

My wife wanted to have the haddock, but asked if she could have it blackened.

TREY:

It was to all of us or utmost astonishment that we were explained that all fish

TREY:

Being that my bud Jeff is also a math wi, knowing what time it was that evening quickly

TREY:

Excel himself.

TREY:

I digress.

TREY:

Immediately, Jeff's reaction to the seafood news, set his stomach on a whirlwind worse

TREY:

Jeff started throwing up in his mouth.

TREY:

Not once, but twice.

TREY:

Olli, their Chihuahua, started barking frantically as he knew his owner was in trouble.

TREY:

And he was!

TREY:

Four exclamation marks.

TREY:

Jeff being the stud he is, got up and pretty much did a fifth grades first place standing long

TREY:

Poor Jeff for having that kind of reaction to being told that they cannot blacken fish because

TREY:

Bottom line, if you want fresh seafood, don't come here.

TREY:

Come here for the drinks, views, and service.

TREY:

That's it.

TREY:

By the way, since Jeff had too much to drink and was way too green, his wife flew them home.

TREY:

And she doesn't even have a license.

TREY:

Truth be told, she can out fly both Jeff and me!

TREY:

17 exclamation mark.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

TREY:

What the actual F?!

CHELSEY:

I mean, so much to unpack here with Craig N.

CHELSEY:

First of all, thank you to your friend who found this review.

TREY:

Marc.

CHELSEY:

Thank you, Marc.

CHELSEY:

For finding this, what a find.

CHELSEY:

Great job.

CHELSEY:

I kind of felt like I was on a scavenger hunt when this was going on, looking for the

CHELSEY:

Um, I just have, I know the weirdest details now about Craig's life and I

CHELSEY:

Also, like your friend was puking because he had a million whiskeys, like...

TREY:

Thank you!

CHELSEY:

It doesn't make any, it makes like no sense.

CHELSEY:

Like, first of all, yes, like that is gross if that's true.

CHELSEY:

That they prepare the fish in advance.

CHELSEY:

I can't imagine how that would be true.

CHELSEY:

Is that like, do you think that that's true?

TREY:

It can't, it can't be.

CHELSEY:

Like marinade it in advance.

CHELSEY:

Like I don't, like I like, um, Jeff, I also don't eat fish

TREY:

Me either.

CHELSEY:

Oh my God.

CHELSEY:

I love that about you.

CHELSEY:

Ugh.

CHELSEY:

Anyway, I digress as does Craig.

CHELSEY:

I mean, the only information Craig gave us about this restaurant was positive.

CHELSEY:

Right?

TREY:

I know.

TREY:

Right.

CHELSEY:

That's so weird.

CHELSEY:

What's the name of that restaurant again?

CHELSEY:

Oh Splash at the Boat House.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

What a splash.

CHELSEY:

They had my goodness, God like such, just such pretentiousness.

CHELSEY:

I could puke,

TREY:

I mean, if I were to ever try to communicate the definition of the word douche,

TREY:

I feel so gross.

CHELSEY:

Agreed.

TREY:

Jeff must think that he is like Jeff Foxworthy.

TREY:

Like he thinks he's very funny.

TREY:

So there's a few like jokes in here, that just come off..

CHELSEY:

Wait, Jeff thinks he's funny or Craig thinks he's funny?

TREY:

Sorry.

TREY:

Craig.

TREY:

Right.

TREY:

Craig thinks he's a comedian.

CHELSEY:

Yes.

CHELSEY:

For sure.

TREY:

And what does that have to do with any like, no, one's going to get like

CHELSEY:

Very strange.

TREY:

Also what is the Chihuahua, Olli, have to do with anything?

CHELSEY:

And what is the fact that he has a hot blonde German wife has to do with anything?

CHELSEY:

He didn't even bring her up again.

CHELSEY:

It's like he introduced this character and then he just let her, like, what happened to the wife

TREY:

Also, why do we need to know that this plane they flew was $2.5 million.

CHELSEY:

Gross.

TREY:

I'm already hate you.

CHELSEY:

I already hate you.

CHELSEY:

And like, what is a perfect place to land so that everybody is watching you and

CHELSEY:

And didn't he start, I was confused.

CHELSEY:

He started in the beginning saying something about having the flight

CHELSEY:

And then he ends with the wife.

CHELSEY:

Are those, is that the same?

TREY:

So he's saying that he and his hot blonde German wife, Craig, decided to

TREY:

Who is Jeff.

CHELSEY:

Oh.

TREY:

So Craig and Jeff are both pilots.

CHELSEY:

Craig's a pilot?

TREY:

I think, oh, maybe he isn't a pilot, but he's the best pilot he

CHELSEY:

I think so.

CHELSEY:

But then, but then in the end he was like, he said the Jeff's wife flew the plane without a license.

TREY:

She can out fly both Jeff and me.

TREY:

So I do think,

CHELSEY:

Oh so then maybe he is a pilot?

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

He is gross.

CHELSEY:

I feel like this is like that, that Billy Madison quote, where they're like, I am

CHELSEY:

Like I, I really..

TREY:

Well on that note, I am not a math wiz, but Craig points out that

TREY:

But then uses the word astonishment, two or three times, to his astonishment, Jeff

TREY:

So that doesn't add up because if you had three rounds the whole time, but then he had five.

TREY:

So, and you were there before he was so what, three rounds of five?

TREY:

What's that?

CHELSEY:

Cause apparently Jeff drinks like a fish.

CHELSEY:

I think Jeff just drinks very fast.

TREY:

But Jeff throws up because of the way the fish has prepared.

TREY:

Not because he had five whiskey sours and was so like done that he

CHELSEY:

It doesn't make any sense because Craig is giving us all the details to

CHELSEY:

Like it's bizarre.

CHELSEY:

It's like, well, of course he threw up, he had five whiskey sours and like 20 minutes.

TREY:

I'm also curious, how do you throw up in your mouth twice?

TREY:

If you throw up in your mouth once aren't you going to then have to get it out?

TREY:

Like how do you then throw up and then throw up again in your mouth?

CHELSEY:

I imagined that it was like a w...w...

CHELSEY:

and then he like just was like, let me get outta here.

CHELSEY:

And also that poor body of water it's now covered in Jeff's puke.

CHELSEY:

Ugh.

CHELSEY:

Dis-gus-sting.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

So also, like, I'm a little bit upset that this reviewer's name is Craig.

CHELSEY:

Cause my dad's name is Craig and obviously, like I had a lot more high hopes for Craig N just

CHELSEY:

Also he just like, he's all over the place.

CHELSEY:

Like he starts with like this, he calls it a joint.

CHELSEY:

Right?

CHELSEY:

And then bless her heart.

CHELSEY:

I remember that part.

TREY:

He is from Texas.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

All right.

TREY:

It is funny to me because it says bottom line, if you want fresh seafood, all caps don't

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

TREY:

And they're telling us that it's not fresh because I think this waiter was

TREY:

Like, does it...

CHELSEY:

Doesn't make any sense.

TREY:

How do you prepare fish in the morning?

CHELSEY:

Yeah, no.

TREY:

It would be cold.

TREY:

Like how?

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

It just, it doesn't make any sense to me.

CHELSEY:

I'm not buying that this place would pre cook their fish and then what microwave it?

TREY:

Yeah.

TREY:

That doesn't make any sense.

TREY:

I feel like this whole review, Is so lacking in value because it's just sort

CHELSEY:

So gross.

CHELSEY:

Like I feel like Craig wrote this review so that on Monday he could like read it to his friends.

TREY:

I mean, I, hear that.

TREY:

I mean, it does feel like who brags about their friends, $2.5 million, anything.

TREY:

I mean, that's just so odd anyway, the spelling and the grammar is actually pretty fantastic.

TREY:

I wonder if Craig was like highly educated aside from being a pilot, which is

CHELSEY:

True.

CHELSEY:

I feel like I'm struggling as a Review Queen with the entertainment value,

CHELSEY:

Cause it was so ridiculous and over the top and crazy, and the details were like wackadoo.

CHELSEY:

And I, like I said, felt like I was on a scavenger hunt trying to figure out

CHELSEY:

Like when are we talking about Splash at the Boathouse?

CHELSEY:

Because like I missing it.

CHELSEY:

And so I'm like, do I attribute that entertainment to Craig for

CHELSEY:

Or is it that I was entertained because people like Craig exist and would feel the need to

CHELSEY:

On Yelp for some person to read and not have any, like, was that why I was laughing?

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

TREY:

Maybe Craig was drunk from the three rounds when they wrote this.

CHELSEY:

I did think that.

CHELSEY:

I did wonder about that.

CHELSEY:

I'm glad you brought that up because I was thinking the same thing.

CHELSEY:

I was like, I wonder if he was like hammered and writing this on the plane ride back.

TREY:

I guess.

TREY:

I just feel like, I don't know.

CHELSEY:

What do you think?

CHELSEY:

Do you feel like we attribute the entertainment to Craig or are we entertained

TREY:

I think it's entertaining because it's ludicrous.

TREY:

Like it doesn't, it's completely invaluable to like, there's, there's nothing going on here,

TREY:

It's like, "Go away, like..."

CHELSEY:

bragging about this, what emotional support Chihuahua?

TREY:

But it has nothing to do with the restaurant.

TREY:

Like I think it was a miscommunication from the waiter that was misinterpreted.

TREY:

And I don't believe that Jeff threw up because of information.

TREY:

I mean maybe, but I also think he threw up because he was so loaded.

CHELSEY:

I think it's very obvious.

TREY:

Oh God.

TREY:

A whiskey sour.

CHELSEY:

Ugh!

CHELSEY:

And five in, in how long?

CHELSEY:

20 minutes?

CHELSEY:

Is that what he said?

TREY:

So gross.

TREY:

I think I could crown this.

CHELSEY:

I think I can crown it too, but before I crown it I just want to make sure

TREY:

Thank you, Marc!

VOICEOVER:

The Queens are Tabulating.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

Do you think you're ready?

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

I'm ready.

CHELSEY:

Are you ready?

TREY:

Oy, I'm ready.

VOICEOVER:

Total Score..

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

It is unanimous one crown from both of the Queens.

CHELSEY:

I feel like this is an example of like, you know, how everyone in the reality for you is

CHELSEY:

Like if I read this, I would be entertained and think it was funny, but it wouldn't,

TREY:

I mean, I still have the half and my other hand, cause I was debating between one and one and

TREY:

It's not a review of this restaurant.

CHELSEY:

Right.

TREY:

I do know that my friend Marc found this because they were going to this

TREY:

So I just think like,

CHELSEY:

Yeah, there's no way from reading this review, I would be like,

CHELSEY:

No, not impactful.

TREY:

No.

TREY:

I just, the entertainment was also the skeaze factor.

TREY:

So I just gave one, like, I'm sorry to Splash At The Boat House.

TREY:

This is attached to your company.

CHELSEY:

Agreed.

TREY:

Cuz Yeeks!

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

All right.

CHELSEY:

My Queens, we have reached the most Regal portion of our show.

CHELSEY:

All right.

CHELSEY:

Trey.

CHELSEY:

Who are you inducting for

VOICEOVER:

My Royal Highness.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

So my Royal Highness this week is a very, very powerful Hollywood woman, her name is I.

TREY:

Marlene King and she is the creator/showrunner of the hit television show that ran for

TREY:

I was thoroughly obsessed with this television show.

TREY:

I joined late.

TREY:

So I've binged a lot of it.

TREY:

Pretty Little Liars had some bumps, you know, I.

TREY:

Marlene King is famous for writing the film Now and Then,

CHELSEY:

Oh my God.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

What a Queen!

TREY:

And had a meeting and was given the property Pretty Little Liars.

TREY:

It was their first attempt at writing a television show and lasted for seven years.

TREY:

I.

TREY:

Marlene King's intention was for it to run for five.

TREY:

And, uh, they were given a green light for two extra seasons and the show

TREY:

And so I.

TREY:

Marlene King was tasked with a very difficult situation of making

TREY:

And I think that I.

TREY:

Marlene King gets a lot of, not love in the world because a lot of the fandom

TREY:

Um, is that the right word?

CHELSEY:

I think so.

TREY:

I don't know.

TREY:

I made it up, um, I think still to this day, it's the number one

TREY:

Like no one has compared to that, but the fans were so into the show that it's

TREY:

And I do think that I.

TREY:

Marlene King was tasked with a very difficult job of keeping these mysteries going for so

TREY:

I have some, flaws that I have noticed, regardless I am inducting I.

TREY:

Marlene King because she really entertained so many people.

TREY:

She really made it cool to want to investigate dig, find clues, be

TREY:

And so for that reason, I am honoring you, I.

TREY:

Marlene King, as my Royal Highness.

TREY:

Thank you for entertaining.

TREY:

So many people.

TREY:

Myself included.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

I had no idea!

TREY:

It might sound silly, but I like love.

TREY:

I even have an, a mug.

TREY:

I did a tour, like I went to Hollywood and did a Warner Brothers Studio Lot Tour, just so that

TREY:

I sent my headshots in a clear envelope asking casting to see me

TREY:

And I signed it.

TREY:

T R dash A Y because they're like they keep getting all these texts from an unknown person.

TREY:

A, I mean, I was that crazy.

TREY:

That crazy.

TREY:

I've loved Pretty Little Liars.

CHELSEY:

I didn't know this about you.

CHELSEY:

I love Now and Then though, so I like, I totally support this nomination.

TREY:

Okay.

TREY:

Enough.

TREY:

What about you?

TREY:

Who are you in ducting for My Royal Highness.

TREY:

Chels?

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

Well, I am inducting someone that is pretty special to both of us.

CHELSEY:

I'm going to do it, and I'm going to induct Emily Kratter because she deserves it.

CHELSEY:

Emily Kratter is the person that introduced Trey and I, none of this

CHELSEY:

She is the biggest cheerleader of both of us.

CHELSEY:

She is the first person to reach out, comment, you know, support us whenever

CHELSEY:

She's so busy and it has so much going on in her life.

CHELSEY:

And yet she still finds the time to compliment us and build us up and let

CHELSEY:

And she's amazing.

CHELSEY:

Also, Emily and I we've been playing phone tag for like 10 years and we do this really fun thing

CHELSEY:

And I just think that says a lot about her and our friendship and our commitment to being friends.

CHELSEY:

So Emily Kratter, I hope you love this because we love you so much.

CHELSEY:

And it is, I mean, it is beyond time that we induct you as Our Royal Highness.

CHELSEY:

I love you, Em.

TREY:

I mean, I fully concur.

TREY:

Yes, she is the female version of a mensh.

TREY:

She

CHELSEY:

is the biggest, the biggest, the best mensh.

CHELSEY:

I love it.

CHELSEY:

Okay.

CHELSEY:

Well, we did it.

CHELSEY:

We're at the end of this episode,

VOICEOVER:

Listener Voicemail.

CHELSEY:

Oh, stop.

TREY:

Oh my goodness.

TREY:

All right.

TREY:

Today we have a Listener Voicemail that is so extreme that we have

TREY:

And here it is, Chelsey.

TREY:

Get ready.

CHELSEY:

I can't wait to hear it.

CHELSEY:

I'm scared.

VOICEOVER:

Hi, this is JoJo calling in with a review from Joshua A of Pieces

TREY:

So just for context here, Pieces Bar is a gay bar

CHELSEY:

in the west village.

TREY:

Yes, you got it.

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

Pieces...of broken mirror.

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

Yep.

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

That's what was strewn everywhere as the bouncer pulled the lesbian slash ex-con out of the bar in

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

And that was really when we knew it was time to leave.

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

Pieces, as made apparent by their logo and uninspired theme night, is the quintessential

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

Pushy patrons were so sweet as to help me drench my shirt in my own drink on a few instances.

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

Which was fine, anyway, since my vodka soda may as well have been a glass of water,

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

At least one of the doctors at the hospital might be hot.

VOICEOVERAnd it reads:

:

Cause you're certainly not going to find anyone mildly attractive here.

TREY:

No.

CHELSEY:

Oh!

VOICEOVER:

Scene!

CHELSEY:

My God!

VOICEOVER:

Do it one more time.

VOICEOVER:

So you have a second take

CHELSEY:

JoJo, we've heard it,

TREY:

We love JoJo!

CHELSEY:

JoJo, first of all, you don't need a second take.

CHELSEY:

That was such a good reading.

CHELSEY:

That was amazing.

CHELSEY:

Wow.

CHELSEY:

I'm blown away.

CHELSEY:

We have the best listeners.

TREY:

I mean, that is a review from 2009!

TREY:

JoJo, have you just been sitting on this review and now you have the

TREY:

I have been to Pieces and, and it's just, you know, it is what it is.

TREY:

It's like, you go there and you get a drink and it's like, of course that's water down.

TREY:

That's like any bar you go to.

CHELSEY:

It's true, but also like high points on that review for entertainment.

CHELSEY:

Like I was thoroughly taken on a journey, entertained lots of imagery, the picture

TREY:

I also love Joshua, the reviewers, storytelling of the patrons

TREY:

Oh my God.

TREY:

Hilarious.

CHELSEY:

So funny.

TREY:

Thank you, Joshua.

TREY:

Thank you Jojo for bringing this.

CHELSEY:

What a queen.

CHELSEY:

And also like, I think I would crown Joshua pretty high.

CHELSEY:

Should we crown Joshua?

TREY:

Yeah, let's do it.

VOICEOVER:

Total Score.

CHELSEY:

Yeah.

CHELSEY:

Same.

CHELSEY:

Unanimous four crowns.

CHELSEY:

I had just took away one crown.

CHELSEY:

Cause like you said, like this is like kind of a like dive.

CHELSEY:

I don't know.

CHELSEY:

Our expectations should be pretty low.

CHELSEY:

If we go to this bar, we know why we're there, but high, high points on

TREY:

I took one crown away because I didn't really like the low blow of saying

TREY:

That's sort of like unnecessary doesn't have anything to do with like working, I guess.

TREY:

Well, I guess sometimes gay bars, bartenders have their very muscular shirtless

CHELSEY:

Don't think that's the M.O.

CHELSEY:

at Pieces though.

TREY:

No, no, but I, um, I do think that the chances of, um, like lesbian ex-con

CHELSEY:

I love it.

CHELSEY:

And that is why we love.

CHELSEY:

Jojo,

TREY:

Jojo, you get five crowns, Jojo.

CHELSEY:

Jojo gets five crowns without a doubt.

CHELSEY:

Ugh, if you don't have an agent already, we gotta sign you.

CHELSEY:

That was a great reading.

TREY:

And, Jojo was going to give us a second read, cuz JoJo's a Pro.

TREY:

So you know what?

TREY:

Kudos to Jojo.

TREY:

Okay, well, queen we did it.

TREY:
