this is a very underdeveloped thought but consider the lynch bros hosting a mbmbam style podcast
oh goodness. oh gracious. I mean their personalities are so dramatically different from the McElroy brothers’ so it would be a completely different show and I swear I’m trying to imagine just what kind of show it would be but all I can think about is whether, assuming Ronan and Declan would agree to sit down and do this at all, are they even able to get through a single question without fighting?
Because if we’re being honest, Matthew is the only Lynch brother capable of True Goofs in anything close to the McElroy style. I could see Ronan maybe pulling a little of their brand of wordplay (I swear I can hear him saying “one time i saw a rancho molt its skin and my eyes went to hell” but maybe i’m thinking more of “trc characters as things the mcelroys have said” idk idk) but most of the humor he brings to the podcast comes in the form of scathing sarcastic bitterness and the rest is just him and Declan verbally sparring and referencing past sibling-inflicted trauma. Declan might like to actually stick to the plan and rip apart these weird questions and the idiots who ask them but Ronan inevitably twists something into a jab at him and then Matthew starts goofing on that and it all spirals, horribly, into a bizarre off-topic mess–
yeah I would say the appeal of their show would familial schadenfreude. People literally listen to it just to listen to Ronan and Declan fight, and I guess they get the added bonus of Matthew being a goofy sunshine child in the background.
That said, there needs to be a beautiful moment in at least one episode where all three of them are completely helpless with laughter over something, because boy howdy do these boys deserve it.
(Also, running with @gaybluesargent‘s tags on this, we really need to address whether the clown box is like. a dream object. or more accurately some sort of terrible night horror creation)
