What our Schmanelist panel do with a windfalls of various size? Caveat: It must be wildly irresponsible. $500, $1,000, $100,000, a million … and one billion dollars.

What if humans laid eggs? Our schmanelists decided this involved chicken overlords and bedazzling. But not the the bedazzling of chicken overlords. Shawn, Alan, and Mira also discuss the birds and the bees, with an emphasis on bees, and sexy hats. And Mira turns out to not be human.
