Dirty Sons of Pitches

In the absence of Eric, the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are graced with the presence of a special celebrity guest, musician/actor Tom Waits. In honor of the big-budget "Great Gatsby," the gang pitch adaptations of books that they hated in high school. The game this week is then coming up with a fitting projecy for prolific director Michael Bay. Along the way the guys talk about stuff like seeing Rosie O'Donnell in her "Exit to Eden" outfit at all times, the scientific combination of Stanley Tucci and Stacey Keach, Tom Waits' wordy and bloody calling card, the real flow of bals with Mr. Bucket, Tom Waits studying for Boo Radley, Nazi rats and singing Einstein, the confusion of Shakespeare's ownership, Hamlet getting nasty with poor Yorrick, sympathy for Dr. Frankenstein, and a cross between "The Dukes of Hazzard" and "Night Rider."
