The [BLANK] Jones: Foodies

It’s the summer. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

    The Tas Melas’ Family Connections Jones

  5. I think I need to hear that robotic voice say “Hello Sweet World”.

  6. I have a drink I named after myself and also the bartender who served me, rather than being stoned I was stumble drunk. So that hopefully balances out the obnoxiousness.

    It’s called “The Surly Tim”
    Kiwi Vodka
    Coke and two limes

    Looks like a manly drink, tastes like bubblegum.

    Man card…gone. But it was worth it. Greatest. Beverage. Ever.

  7. This might have been the best TBJ episode. Ever.

  8. LOL love the production in the beginning

  9. Co-Sign, MTL_Dave. Olive Oil rocks. What else am I supposed to do, watch the NBA Summer League?

  10. In the arab world, we call “dolma” yebra. Next one should be the movie jones, or specifically, the summer movie jones.

  17. I couldn’t stop laughing during the fill in the blanks section. Just awesome.

  18. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t matter whether you drink tea or coffee, you just have to make sure you don’t drink it when it’s really hot.

  19. How come the audio didnt show up?

  20. jones dudes–why not make your next one The Boardgame Jones??
    Settlers of Catan, etc.

  21. The Cartoon Jones – Talk about favorite cartoons growing up and some ones you still enjoy today.

    Also, I’m sure Taco Trey Kerby could photoshop The Cartoon Jones to oblivion

  22. God, the beginning of the guess the food section was the most hilarious thing I’ve heard in a long, long time. Thanks for these hilarious episodes so far. If you’re taking votes on increasing, I’d be all for it.
