Facebook PAC, Poop Powered Bikes, and Legalized Dwarf Tossing

In both the literal and metaphorical sense, we’ve got a lot of shit this week on The Half Hour Happy Hour. Not us, of course. We’re as awesome as ever. But many of the topics this week are about things that are shitty. There are a few bright spots though, like monkeys controlling robot arms, a doggy AT-AT, and curious rovers. So grab that beer and listen up!
