We’ve got a penchant for gamesmanship, let’s put those together with a little bit of fun from TikTok

17.02.2023 0 By admin

Welcome to “Good Mythical More.

” We got some cups, we’ve got a penchant for gamesmanship, let’s put those together with a little bit of fun from TikTok.

Yeah! To compete to be the Lord of the Cups in “Good Mythical More!” But first, let’s do a little Freeze Frame.

Okay, and now you can explain the first one while I’m pondering what is in this.

Every single thing- It’s a nasty parfait.

Oatmeal, fruit cup, yogurt- Jello and mac and cheese to top it off.

Jello and mac and cheese.

The mac and cheese is the- So you have to get a.

Yeah, exactly.

Just think of your mom.

As you’re trying to get to the bottom of that- Sue.

This first game- Good old Sue.

Is we’ve got one cup here that has a blue tape on it.

I also have one of those.

And the idea is to do this until you get the blue cup on the bottom.

Mmkay? Mmkay? Mmkay.

Do you understand? Understand how it works.

I don’t think this is gonna be bad.

You like? I like.

Yeah, I was thinking, this feels like the kind of thing that Link would like, if you were to give it to him.

I was just really enjoying the episode, win or lose.

Oh, he’s going in for a second bite.

I mean, the goopy stuff is good.

Goopy and bland.

Well, here’s the thing, you know we do our AMAs over at the Mythical Society, in the January AMA, someone asked a question.

We typically don’t like getting asked food questions, like what do you prefer, or whatever, but this person asked it in a really unique way, and they were like, “Are you a fork and plate person “or a bowl and spoon person?” And I know immediately Link is a bowl and spoon person, and as you’re seeing, basically the perfect demonstration of that.

Saving that for later.

And I was like, you know what, I’m a plate and knife person.

I’m gonna more often like savory things that need to be cut than a spoon and a bowl.

You know what I’m saying? And I was like, that’s a creative way to get at something.

That’s a great first date question.

I saw a TikTok that was the type of TikTok where you open the comments and it’s like, “Target audience reached,” you know? And it’s about searching for the perfect bowl that kind of is like a plate with edges that come up a little bit, so that you can like feel that you have a bowl, but it’s really a plate.

That’s the type of person I am.

We have those.

I mean, I think they’re like serving bowls.

A cereal bowl would be like this big, and then the serving bowl is this big, so it’s a little too big, but it’s like half as tall.

But it’s not just a lip, so it’s still technically like a serving bowl, and it’s perfect for when you order like ramen or when you make ramen if you’re into that.

Oh, you make ramen.

You don’t have to just order it.

Just a gargantuan bowl of cereal.

I like a taller wall for a soup, you know? ‘Cause I just like that containment.

I don’t like to eat my soups out of it, because too much surface area cools the soup.

Exactly, yeah, yeah.

We’re talking like a quinoa bowl situation, you know? Quinoa bowl.

Yeah, yep, yep.

Okay, Stevie, I think what we’re gonna ask for from you is a count down of sorts.

Oh, I can do that.

Maybe a three, two, one, go.

Okay, ready? Wait, what is this pre loosening? I don’t know.

What is this pre loosening? All right, go, any time you’re ready, Stevie.

No! Three, two, one, go! Done! That one didn’t go all the way down.

Done! It’s still not all the way down.

Oh, come on.

Done! Oh, yours won’t even go down.

What’s that, pre stuffing? Can we try one more time? That was good.

So one of the things I was thinking- What was your technique? Well, I was just doing one hand, but I think that if you had time to practice this, you would end up doing some technique that was like one hand.

No, I don’t know.

Bet you like the person who had the world record for this.

That would be cheating.

Okay, let’s try again.

Would have a different technique here.

Let’s just keep trying ’til I win.



Three, two, one, go! Okay, let’s start over.

Let’s start over.

It’s easy to start over, ’cause you just grab them all.

All right, here we go.

Three, two, one, go! Oh, gosh! If you don’t win this one, man.

Done! I dropped my freaking cup, man.

How’d you lose that one? ‘Cause I knew I was gonna win.

Let’s go again.


Three, two, one, go.

Oh, you know what, I cheated.

Gotta start over.


What? I’m trying to figure out, how did you, what’s the technique of moving the hold hand up? That’s really what I really need help with.

Moving the hold hand up.

‘Cause once I do this.

See, I just had to move the hand up.

All right, I’m ready.

Hold on.

Three, two, one, go! Done.

Can I just watch you do one? So hey, I figured out a technique.

So the left hand never moves, it’s slowly moving.

It’s just adjusting every single time.

I’m only thinking about the right hand, which gives you the ability to just focus on the.

But you know, if somebody was really good at it, it would be like this fast, , you know? All right, let’s do a new game entirely.

Yeah, let’s do a new game.

Balloon cup battle.

Hey, I think you might find your strength here.

So these are gonna become the end goals and then we’re gonna take and we’re gonna blow up this balloon, and you blow up yours.

Well, let’s get these even.

And then we’re gonna take and expel the balloon air- Put it further to the edge.

To push it past the other goal.

And then- This is more a playing field.

When it goes past, you win, but like, there’s a battle happening.

Oh, god.

And I believe you have to turn it upside-down.

The cup.



You’re gonna be standing for this? You gotta put the cup in the middle to begin with.

All right.

No- Cheating.


I mean, the hardest part for this is blowing up the balloon.

Right, okay.

Stevie, let’s get a three, two, and a one.

I’ll give a go after that too.


Three, two, one, go.

I thought I had some strategy.

All right, let’s keep playing this ’til I win.

I was like, you know what, I’ma get it.

He’s not gonna be able to blow up his balloon.

The first Link did was grr, I’m gonna.

Let me stretch it out! I didn’t think you could blow up a balloon, I thought I knew you, man.

Well, I thought you had the clear advantage.

All right, here we go.

Because you’re good at balloon blowing.

All right, here we go.

It’s one of the things you’re known for.

Three, two, one, go! Hold on, there’s no time outs in this game.

It’s the balloon.

There’s no time outs in this game, man.

I got it.

Okay, there’s no time outs.

All right, all right.

Three, two, one, go! Okay.

Hold on, we have a spillage over there.



All right, three, two, one.

Nope, I’m just telling her to do it.


Okay, you have to wait for go.


Yeah, Rhett.

Three, two, one, go! I realized the dumb thing I’m doing.

You know the dumb thing I’ve been doing? Lay it on me.

I just can’t imagine what it’s like to watch me.

This is what I’ve been doing.

It’s very entertaining, trust me.

I’ve just blowing up the balloon and then going like that.

Yeah, yeah, that’s not good technique.

All right, I’m gonna pinch the balloon.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I’m very coachable.

Yeah, you are.

You’re a great student.

All right, here we go.

Three, two, one, go! I think you were still pinching the balloon.

I was squeezing it.


All right, here we go.

Three, two, one, go! Oh, dammit! I’m not gonna get upset, I’m not gonna lose my cool.

Don’t get upset, man.

It won’t be fun for anybody.

All right, here we go.

Three, two, one, go! I got a new balloon it’s so harder to blow up.


You want to change up the strategy? No, no, no, no.

See? Okay.

Three, two, one, go! Oh, again? One of us is gonna faint.

Three, two, one, go! Oh no, no, no, no! Hold on.

I’m getting lightheaded.

You almost got me on that one.

There you go.

There you go.

Maybe my side of the table’s got more friction.

I think it slopes down.

Yeah, that’s what it is.

Okay, all right, we have another one.

We have another one.

And I think for this one we’re going to bring in some additional teammates.

Chase and Emily! Chase and Emily, come in here.

We also want to let you know that, yeah, we’re talking about Sporked.


The Mythical Kitcheneers, they are posting articles over on Sporked with their picks.

Every week a Mythical Kitcheneer picks a product that they want to highlight.

Josh’s favorite burrito tortilla, Nicole’s favorite potato chips, on and on, every week.

So another great reason to head on over to Sporked to find out what you should be buying at the grocery store.

Hey, guys.



Okay, who wants to be my teammate? I’ll do it.

I’m already over here.

I don’t think it makes you teammates, I think it makes you enemies.


We’re all playing for ourselves, but it’s tournament style, and that’s a bracket, and this is a bracket.

Okay, Chase, we’re teammates.

But the way that this works, when we watched it ahead of time, there was a long line of people standing across from each other and there were cups in between them.

And then it was like, somebody, and I guess in this case, that would be Stevie is saying things like head, nose, ears, cup! And then when she says cup, you have to grab the cup.

So there should be only three out, since there’s four of us.

Well, it’s two against two.

Oh, it’s two against two? So me and Chase need to get exactly the same distance from the cup.

All right.

And put the cup right in between us, so that it’s not closer to either one of us.

So like in between our knees, so like right there, right? Slide all the way over.

Is that in between us? Yeah.


This is gonna be tough.

Are you a lefty or a righty? That’s very personal.

Is it? ‘Cause I’m gonna be elbowing you.

I’m a righty.


That’s the thing is that it’s a lot different when you’re facing.

You’re both on opposite sides of the cup.


Okay, you ready? Yeah.



Oh! All right, best two out of three.


I know what it’s like to lose at the beginning.

And you squeezed it out of my hand.

Yeah, we both hit it at the same time.


Oh, we should probably keep our- Nose.






All right, so we’re tied over here.

Same, same.

Well, I just won, man.

That’s true.

Two times in a row.

Okay, so you won.

I progress on.

Best three out of five.


Well, we’re tied.

Let’s just do best two out of three.

We got a tie breaker over here.

All right.


Upper lip.

I don’t know why I’m laughing.

Well, upper lip’s are funny.








Ooh, so meet again.

Very good.

That was a no look.

All right, so let’s have a losers round.


Yep, yep, yep.

So you guys are right here.

You don’t have to move from where you are.

Oh, I moved back for y’all.

The four of us are gonna play another game after this, so you guys get to stick around.


Ready? Okay.


I guess I could go a little bit that way.

I think that this is between.


That’ll work.


















Chase, you’re the second worst at this.

Huzzah! All right, so you guys just slide on back.


But don’t disappear.

Yes, boss.


So we get equidistant.

I think we can kind of face it.

It’s a little more like their game on TikTok.

‘Cause they were like completely side by side, you know? Okay.

Do we see equidistant? Yeah.













Oh! Inconclusive.

I hit it, but didn’t- No, I got it, Emily.

That’s one for me.




It’s tied up.




Your nips look like a cup? Nips, nips.

I thought she said nips, cups.


Eyes, nose.

Wait, wait, wait, I’m malfunctioning.







I keep hitting it instead of grabbing it.

That one.










It disappeared.

All right, so you won, but not by much.

Hey, now the funnest game- Now that’s a microphone, that is not a third nipple.

The last game- I was a fan of the nipples.

Bring that.

This is the game I’ve been waiting for.

Look at that.

Bring that tray in.

Isn’t that crazy looking? What’s wrong with that guy? Look at my ribcage.

We’re gonna play- Oh my gosh.

Do we use a water bottle for this? Is that what you’re supposed to use, like this? Oh my gosh.

Oh, the carafe is better than the water bottle? Way better.

Okay, so- Do that, Rhett.

Do that, on me.

No, but don’t cover up the face.

It looks like a face.

It looks like two chickens.

Okay, hold on, but they’ve gotta play this game.

This is the game of all games.

I don’t know what’s happening.

Doesn’t look like Space Ghost? Can we get a- From coast to coast.

Okay, this is interesting, ’cause it’s jiggling a little bit.

This is fine.

So this is, we’ll go one, two, three, four, and we’re trying to add a little bit more each time and it’s the person who ends up filling it up and making it overflow loses.

Make it taller.

Why is it teetering? I don’t know, we’ll find out.

Is this one gonna teeter? Why is it teetering? Is that part of the- I think the tray is bad.

No, it’s the bottom of this, see? No, it’s the cup.


It’s the cup.

It’s the bottom of this, see? We got crappy cups.

You see what I mean? We got cups that are not flat on the bottom.

Do we have another cup? Another clear cup? I think I’ve fixed this one.

That’s a tiny cup.


Yeah, give us one of those.

You ever had a dream and then you can’t remember it, but you can feel that you’re about to remember it? Mm-hmm.

That is such a strange feeling.

It’s just like- It’s shorter here, but whatever.

It’s usually a bad dream too.

Okay, here we go.

About your nips.

Yeah, it’s like, I am so on the verge of remembering my dream.

That is warm.


I noticed that.

I think that’s part of the game play.

Oh, sorry, excuse me.

This first round is just for fun.

This is warm, because this is what I turned over in the first game and they had to refill with apparently- Hot water.

Hot water.

They always do that.

Okay, now it gets interesting, right? You got a little surface tension.

All it takes is a drop, a drop is a pour.

Oh my gosh! Nice, Chase.

This is a lot of anxiety.

Whoa, Emily! Yeah, yeah, it works, you spilled on the outside, but it did not overflow.

And that was a lot.

READ  What are the interesting zombie theme electronics?

Yeah, that was a good amount.

That was a lot of water.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, look at that.

I mean, it’s definitely higher.

It’s like a water muffin.

We’re making a water muffin.

I wouldn’t put my elbow on the table.

It’s coming over.

Water muffin.

There’s no way I’ma be able to- You might.

You gotta maintain the water muffin.

Water muffins are actually more common than you would think.

‘Cause of the properties of water.

Oh, there it is.

That counts.

That counts, that counts.

Oh my god.

All you have to do is get a drip.

Oh! Oh my gosh, look at that water muffin! Drip on the water muffin.

Do you know the water muffin man? The water muffin man.

Could be Chase.

No! You can’t do that.

I don’t know.

I think it’s within the rules.

You can’t blow your ‘stache air onto the- I think it’s within the rules, because he’s technically moving the muffin when he does that.

You know what I’m saying? Right.

I poured water into the thing.

If you move the muffin too much- I thought I was gonna lose last time, and now we’re down to it again.

This could last an hour.

Oh my god, this is such high tension.

This is like that Mythical Society Jenga game.

Yeah, I know.

It’s high water tension.

Oh my god.

Oh, look at that muffin! Look at that muffin! Emily, you are an indiscriminate pourer.

Good gosh.

I am? What does that mean? I pour too much? It looks like it’s so much taller when you’re not right down.

Can we see that on camera? Can you see the muffin? You drip too hard.

I’ve been told.

That’s what the kids say! Okay.

If you do this successfully, you could really set me up here.

It’s gonna happen eventually.

Somebody’s gonna break the muffin.

Oh! That was a lot, dude.

This is blowing my mind.

Oh man, is it gonna come back around? How could it come back around? Chase.

How could it come back- That was your opportunity.

Drop-ortunity? That initial drop.

Oh! Oh my god! That was too much.

It’s defying gravity.


I’m sorry, Link.

That was too much.

Oh my god.

Okay, guys.

Oh man, this is better than NFL sports.

Okay, here we go.

I think you did the same thing again where it did not overflow- It didn’t, you dripped that beside it.

You dripped it beside it.

This is crazy.

It’s gonna be on “The Yoke Show.

” The what show? ESPN, “The Yoke Show.

” Oh, okay.

Nice technique.


How is this still going? You’re surprisingly steady-handed today.

I know.

Oh, let it go.

What? Gosh, dang it.

No matter how long this takes, Emily, I think you’re destined to lose.

I know.

Like the size of your pours just is not gonna be sustainable.

Look at this, this is incredible.

This is incredible.

I feel like people who have prostate problems are not going to enjoy this.

Oh! Oh, dang! That was a big one.

Ah, Chase! I’m so sorry.

I’m so sorry.

I feel like I’m adding to subtracting Emily’s years of life.

I know, it’s true.

Okay, come on.

Who would’ve thought we’d have done this many rounds? Oh my gosh! Emily, that was like a shot.

You did so much and it’s still there! Look at that muffin.

It is razzing! Emily’s like bloop! This might be a world record water muffin.

We set the record today.

How do you measure a water muffin? What in the world? It feels so indiscriminate, yet it still doesn’t overflow.

Let Morgan get a photo.

Yeah, Morgan.

Yeah, Morgan, get down there.

This is the water muffin man.

The water muffin man.

Okay, golly.

It’s everything but over the edge.

Oh my god! The interesting thing that happens is you make a little muffin in this thing, the carafe creates a little muffin that you have to spill that muffin into this muffin.


You know what I’m saying? And that muffin releases, and then it hits this muffin.

It’s like a donut.

All right, Chase.

It’s a double muffin situation.

Put the muffin out of its misery.

Beat it into submission.

If I have to do this again, so help me, God.

Oh! It spilled.

Nope, nope, nope, nope! It spilled.

It broke.

The muffin broke.

The muffin broke.

Do you wanna see if I could do it one more time without it breaking further? Well, I don’t think that’s how it works.

Just give it a good, strong pour.

It sort of has a limit.

Give it one of those signature Emily pours.


It has a limit and it sort of resets itself.

Just keep going.

There you go, see? There it goes.

We’ve officially broken the muffin.

I don’t know, it’s still kind of there.


Look at that.

I’ll remember this for the rest of my life.
