Better Off Undead #119 – Dave's Epic Olive Garden Rant

It’s A Very Davey Christmas all over again. This week’s show was a deep dive into the puzzling and paranoid mind of David Wright, as well as a perfect snapshot of just how Sean and Johnny think so totally differently. (Well, maybe not that differently, as you’ll notice in the show.)
This episode is an instant classic, and it’s called Dave’s Epic Olive Garden Rant for a reason. The whole show rolls out like an epic, and it’s performed in a way only three natural storytellers could. The buildup is massive. The tension is wound so tight you could play melodies on it. Then it all crumbles in an anticlimactic swoop, a true tragedy that leaves you in tears of laughter.

    Dave, I feel your pain about the beef in the sauce. Not cool. If someone says they want something in particular, feeding them something else does not count as service. I do NOT eat wheat. It’s a medical thing, honest. No matter how many people seem to think I’m doing like some weird diet, I’m not. So, when people feed me wheat, mixed in a pudding they swear is gluten free, I will know they took the easy route….later. When I can’t call them on it to their faces because I’m doubled up in pain. So, please, rant away. I LOVED every second of it. Thank you! Look forward to every episode.
    P.S. the one Olive Garden I’ve been to on the West Coast sounds like a world away from yours in Redacted. There are betters ones out there.
