C'mon. Mangos should be scored at the top and then peeled like a banana.

Pomegranates 2 is pure gold. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

This is.. I'm supposed to be watching this? This wasn't illegally recorded by the NSA via webcam or something? They meant for people to watch this, voluntarily?

I think my favorite part when nobody was addressing the camera or near the camera and they were talking quietly about something else so you couldn't actually hear what they were saying or know what they were talking about.

I liked when they all just casually wiped their hands on Scott's t-shirt.

C'mon. Mangos should be scored at the top and then peeled like a banana.

Before peeling, jam a sharpened stick - like a big heavy skewer with a point whittled down on one end - into the bottom of the mango. Try to wedge it into the seed if you can.

Then score the top and peel like a banana. Using your knife slice into the fruit from the top down towards the stick. Not all the way, just enough so there are little wedges of mango all the way around that are easy to bite off.

Dust with cayenne pepper or chili powder.

You may wish to eat without a shirt in the bathtub.

I heartily endorse Scott's podcast, which is almost exactly like hanging out with him.

I feel this instant psychic connection with the guy saying "green pepper is a fucking fruit!" and I don't know why

This is insane. I love this. Were they all recorded in a row? What are they on? Fruit?

How can he dislike pomello? Did he pick a dry one? Why is he squinting at his script? Why has he sedated his half naked friends?

it's inspiring to see that people older than myself are total stoners.
albeit stoners who don't understand how to choose ripe fruit.

I like Pomegranates 2 for the brief foray into live action doge: such anti-cancer.

I just assume this is what Jimmy Price does when he's not working on murders.

I watched a few of these and have come to the conclusion that Scott Thompson's friends are not down with shirts, male or female. They just let it all hang out and eat sometimes-mysterious fruit on the Internet.

The series will be incomplete until they cover limes and/or peaches.

"Oh! Oh! That's so bad! Try that!"

Does he start peeling the banana by biting it? Is that something people do?

Man, those Church St apartments all look the same on the inside, don't they?
