Yes, Lindsay?

1.
Have you ever thought about cheating on me?
2.
- No. - Good.
3.
We had exes that lied and cheated.
4.
So that's a really big no-no.
5.
Basically, he had lied to me for a year and a half.
6.
He technically was already married to somebody else.
7.
And he had kids with that person.
8.
And he did not tell me about it.
9.
And I found out through the grapevine because his wife messaged my sister on Facebook.
10.
Yeah, it was pretty like, "Dun dun dun!"

1.
So the third bra is going to be the bullet bra or the torpedo bra.
2.
And that was popularized in the '40s and '50s.
3.
It's like you have a compass attached to you.
4.
So wherever you're pointing, it's like that's the direction you're going in.
5.
Yep.
6.
So these bras were really popular with film stars in the '40s and '50s.
7.
They would wear sweaters over them, so you could see their unnaturally cone-shaped boobs.
8.
It's dramatically not the shape of a normal boob.
9.
It's just very pointy.
10.
We did hear through the grapevine
11.
that many of them may have stuffed the remaining space from between their boob and the cone.
12.
So we're gonna do that.

So there's Joel.
2.
Joel leases out the food operation.
3.
Taco plate.
4.
And there's Joel Jr., his son.
5.
They run it as their own business.
6.
Now, Chef, I hear through the grapevine that their food is actually good.
7.
I mean, it looks like a pretty nice taco that he's eating there, right?
8.
Yeah.
