Minute 58: These Guys All Suck
(Trigger Warning for Talk of Suicide and Pedicide and Animal Cruelty)
Megan and Tierney would love to be celebrating being halfway through this movie about MASH Middle School, but today is a heavy minute as Painless tells the guys he’s decided to end his life and they all react… terribly. Seriously, they’re just the worst. Even getting to deep dive into history isn’t fun since it’s about the demise of a certain dictator and his certain wife and his dog and his fanatical followers… yeah. Brad Mendenhall does an amazing job analyzing the “why” of this scene, has us questioning who are the major characters throughout the movie, and joins in the gratefulness for Father Mulcahy as the scene finally changes. In all seriousness, if you ever are having feelings like Painless is, please reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
