    I was reading Pete’s article about politicians and Conan’s Riddle of Steel, and came across his description of how the 2011 cluster-eff over the debt ceiling went wrong: “They screwed up the games.”

    It joins a few of my favorite other sayings from Pete, and I hereby coin the term Fenzelisms to describe them:

    • “Dan Harmon is in the ravioli.”
    • “Superiority is no substitute for victory.”
    • …and now… “They screwed up the games.”, perhaps better as an injunction: “Don’t screw up the games.”

    I invite you to catalog your most favorite Fenzelisms here, and maybe we can do some work defining them in less allusive language.

    A Malaisia, if you will.

    Phenomenology. Or as I like to say, mah-nah-mah-nah-logy.

    Can we also start a list of all the podcasters by their number of attempted segues?

    I would love to see that. I think a google doc is in order.
