Weekend at Bernie’s Quote: “How do you like that? The guy gets laid more times dead than I do alive.” – Larry Wilson

Listener Christian commissioned this ’80s classic as a tribute to Shat The Movies host Roger Roeper, and Rog defends it against criticism from Big D and Kerri Gross.

Find out what a 2003 Pizza Hut promotion had to do with this 1989 comedy and how much mustaches confuse Kerri. We also cover Big D’s Caribbean party life, how hot New York actually gets, and what actually happens to a body after death.

Roger lies about lying to get laid. Big D explains the aphrodesiacal properties of boats. And Kerri reveals that nurses like to play a little game called How Would You Kill Somebody And Not Get Caught?

Plus, you’ll get a questionable history of voodoo, learn how the Shat gang will honor Gene when he dies, and receive an invitation to St. Elmo’s Party. See you on the beach!
