Larry vs. The Gigantic Slug

The hamper update to end all hamper updates. We know we’ve said it before, but this time, we mean it. Yes, the hamper update takes an unexpected turn that was completely expected. By the time it’s over, Larry is as close to being the Dad from A Christmas Story as he could possibly be.

Larry saves his wife from a bloodthirsty, gigantic slug. And does soap-bar melding float your boat? Then get ready for the RETURN OF THE FIVEFECTA, or “How Larry Got His Soap Mojo Back.”

But wait, there’s more! We award honorary doctorates and Colonel ranks to the first 500,000 listeners who download this episode!

Yes, listen to this week’s This Week With Larry Miller and you’ll be walking in tall cotton. Possibly in a raccoon coat. That’s Dr. Colonel Larry Miller to you, sir.

Quote of the week:

    “Daddy has protected the house once again from all varmints & creatures.”

    Is there a trick to getting a Larry Miller Drinking Society card? I sent in a S.A.S.E. but neglected to mention that I wanted a card. I also neglected to stuff cash in the envelope. My bartender said he would give me a free drink if I presented my card… which is a lot more than he offered me for my 30 sobriety chip.

    As soon as I sober up a little more I will send in my second request.

      No need for a request note as such. If an SASE shows up, we’ll put two and two together and know you want a card. But it does take a while for all of the envelopes to get opened, stuffed and sealed, so your patience is tremendously appreciated! — Jeff

    A bloodthirsty, gigantic slug? I didn’t know Larry knew my next-door neighbor. (Hardy-har-har — I kill me!)

    I thought all along, Larry should buy a white garbage can to use as a hamper. That object would clearly announce, “I’m just temporary, to keep our dirty clothes off the floor until such time as my darling, intelligent, tasteful wife finds the appropriate hamper for permanent use.” Buying an ACTUAL hamper steps all over your wife’s toes and is bound to cause trouble.

    I love Larry’s phrase, “the bed and bath joint.” It makes Bed, Bath and Beyond sound like the hangouts or dives called “beer joints” I remember from years ago. A “bed and bath joint” is sort of a generic, corner-tavern type place where you can go in for a slug of home decor and a pickled bologna on your way home from work.

    Wrote you way back comparing you to Jean Shepherd. You were kind to mention me in the Podcast. Now my best friend has started a site out of our love for comedy and you my enjoy taking a look at it called and I contributed an Ode To Shep and again mentioned you in that piece.
    I think you will enjoy the site.

    You could take the old hamper and the new hamper, moisten them and squeeze them together… oh, never mind.

    I don’t mean to be a smart aleck, but you do realize you can buy a hamper on Amazon? All you have to do (and by the way, how sweet it would be to shop online with your wife at your side) is go to and click on the Amazon link. From there, type in Hamper in the search box. (Call your kids in to help you with this, if necessary.) You’re probably not going to believe this, but there are over 8,100 hampers listed. They show up, 16 to a page, in all shapes, colors and prices. If you come across a hamper with assorted teas, crumpets and figgy puddings, keep going. (see Fortnum and Mason Tea Emporium.

    But, here’s how you win: at Amazon, if you spend more than $25, you get free shipping! Wow! And if you do buy it on Amazon, it’s like putting money back into your own pocket, even if it is 1/64 of a penny… or you’ll be that much closer to free drinks with Chris and Jeff.

    Best Regards.

    Just bought my Halloween costume on Amazon through this very site….Sad that I am a 44 year old dude and still wearing costumes…

    I always thought a Hamper was someone who lived in the Hamptons.

    Even though I am not a fan of bar soap (for very good reasons that I will not go into) I am a fan of good story-telling, so, of course, I love your show. I want to share some helpful advice regarding bar soap. It is meant to be cured before use, but modern packaging does not allow for this. When you bring your new soap bars home they should be unwrapped before putting them away so that they can cure, and then they will be harder and last longer. This may improve your soap stacking, increasing your fecta numbers. Good luck and thanks for such a good show.

    I intended to create you that very small word in order to give thanks again for these gorgeous methods you have discussed in this article. It is so incredibly generous of people like you to grant extensively what a number of us might have supplied for an e-book to generate some dough on their own, most notably seeing that you might well have tried it in case you decided. The things in addition served like a good way to recognize that many people have a similar zeal like my personal own to find out somewhat more pertaining to this matter. I know there are several more pleasurable opportunities in the future for people who looked at your site.
