Pat & John look back at the year that was and determine it to be the pinnacle of human achievement. Then they look up the word ‘pinnacle’ and have to make a shame-faced retraction.
John and Pat pick a vague subject and half-heartedly try to discuss it, but in the end they just wind up arguing over the merits of Wheat Thins. So it’s basically an episode of Dr. Oz, but with better medical information.
John & Pat reminiscence about the past year and try to come up with highlights from previous shows. When they are, unsurprisingly, unable to do that, they debate the best season of Hee Haw and spout incorrect facts about Colbert’s upcoming late night television show.
John & Pat mistake unsuccessfully attempt to prove that brevity is the soul of wit when they don’t have much to say about two short stories, one a classic of the form.
