This is the Total Drama series Man of God, in which we chronicle the exploits of one Father Robert Ballecer, aka Grimace in a Priest Costume, aka The Digital Jesuit, aka <PadreSJ>, aka FFF, aka <MetalHealthSJ>. Please use our dvr and send in tips with examples of his very Christlike behavior.
In this week’s Man of God, we listen to the ham planet with a brown, basketball-sized JELL-O ball for a head say “Fuck Yo Sink”, and then try to play it off when he finds out his mic is on.
UPDATE: EffenDunn is back at his post doing the usual shitty job that he’s famous for.
EffenDunn is now possibly EffenDone as technical director of TNT and his future is in serious doubt as a meaningful contributing member of the TWiT staff. This occurred one day after we covered the ongoing purge of gay employees at TWiT. No longer the TD, he might be grabbing a mop for special after-hours cleanup duty after all the real work has been done by competent workers.
As you can see in the video below, Mike Elgan has little compassion for former members of the TWiT family after they’re no longer employed in their original positions. “Where is EffenDunn? He isn’t Effen here.” Then laughter was heard in the studio on the livestream cam. (Now that the Dropcams have been taken down, it’s harder to be certain of exactly what went down…but it’s a sad story to be sure for Cleanthes, TWiT’s self-proclaimed former number one fan.)
After you watch the video, please think about this: Elgan’s response to a legitimate question posed in the official TWiT chatroom is to make a joke; he makes a rude comment about a man he’s worked with for months. What a great atmosphere to work in—no wonder so many talented contributors have fled the scene recently.
Cleanthes moved to Petaluma on his own dime to work with his idol, Leo Laporte. He was a longtime chatroom participant and came to TWiT full of excitement and wonder.
But here’s what we do know: There is no way that Mike Elgan enjoyed sitting there show after show saying after mishap after fuck-up that they’ll “Fix it in post.” The embarrassment that resulted had to have been a major factor for Elgan.
No word as of yet if Effen will get his prized TWiT tattoo lasered off. But one thing’s for sure…Lisa certainly won’t allow Effen to continue at his current pay level. Life just got a little harder for our man in Petaluma.
Here’s the transcript of some insightful #twitlive chatter:

Slack-mouthed soup-slurper Leo Laporte’s purge of all gay staffers is almost complete. With the recent firing of Jeff Noodles, the few remaining LGBT community members includes Myriam Joire and Jason C. Cleanthes. Before that Chad Johnson and Dick DeBartolo were shown the door.
It remains to be seen just how far Leo will allow himself to be manipulated by the notoriously anti-gay Lisa Kentzell. But we fear for Jason C. Cleanthes. He needs the paycheck.
So here’s the complete list of fired, demoted or otherwise purged gay/lesbian contributors:
We here at TotalDrama stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the brave gay employees that have been fired by TWiT. This unfair treatment should not be tolerated in 2015. Leo and Lisa should be ashamed of their unfair business practices.
Idiotic blowhard Jeff Jarvis is currently operating under the severe delusion that David Letterman actually sent him personal notes. Jarvis is so old and his eyes so weak that he can’t tell that these are simple form letters sent by assistants and then signed by an intern. David Letterman obviously has no clue that these letters were even sent.
My most prized possessions from my days as a TV critic (even more than hate mail from Bill Cosby): letters from Dave pic.twitter.com/YXLMDQJY9B
Update: The editorial board at TotalDrama has just learned that Jeff Jarvis’s most-prized possession is in fact, not these letters, but his United Airlines Global Services membership made possible by his unethical business relationship with Google, Inc.
Leo Laporte just announced that 60 million more people will soon be able to listen to TWiT shows on Spotify. They are apparently a “launch partner” of the new service rolling out shortly.
WHAT THIS MEANS: Any current TWiT show contributor should immediately demand more money from Leo ‘n’ Lisa if their content and talent is to be used to line the pockets of the owners.
It’s only fair! And for the underpaid staff and contributors to not be able to share in this larger share of revenue because of the increased exposure brought about by this new partnership deal would be a criminal grab for cash on the part of Lisa “Kentzell” Laporte. Watch your wallets, TWiT contributors!
Anybody who reads this site knows that you’ll only find positive posts and helpful suggestions on how TWiT can improve their programming here. And anyone who visits this blog regularly knows that we don’t dabble in the negative very often.
But just this once, we’d like to present you with a choice of who you hate the most. We present to you THE TROLL POLL.

In a move that surprised no one, Jeff Needles now works for Meerkat. #Soup said he didn’t have a job lined up (could have technically been true at the time) and that Noodles “couldn’t take the heat,” but apparently he can take the heat at a quickly growing San Francisco tech startup.
Yes, Leo Laporte and TWiT aren’t the only game in town (Jason Howell), and fame and fortune can soon follow after you leave the Walrus’ nest (Sarah, Tom, Iyaz, Chad).
Congratulations, Noodles! We never liked you, but you have again shown that nobody needs TWiT or Leo to be successful. Carly Perkins will replace Noodles’ job functions at TWiT, until she is hired by Victoria’s Secret.
Professional weight-gainer Leo Laporte was once known as an entertaining personality who brought joy and knowledge to his loyal fans. He was engaging and insightful on shows such as “The Screen Savers” and “Call for Help.” But in recent years he has grown ever lazier and has allowed his shitty attitude to grow with his waistline. LaPig has these days pretty much narrowed down the recycled subjects he talks about on his various shows to this short list:
How his hair has grown back after the New Year’s Eve Show
How he was banned from Apple Events years ago
How he “feels bad” about showing up late to shows
How they all just “looooooooove” Chad
How they spent $1 million on a studio
Please let us know in the comments section which ones we’ve missed.
An international day of prayer and candlelight vigil has been set for 9:30 p.m. PST on Saturday at the Petaluma Town Square to honor the lone remaining decent employee at TWiT: Jason Howell.
Jason is the only one left at the Shit Twithouse with any talent, drive or ability. He is now completely surrounded (after Chad, Noodles, Sarah, Iyaz and countless others have moved on).
So it is with a humble heart and a hopeful eye toward the future that we are calling for all TotalDrama fans to descend on Petaluma this Saturday for a prayer vigil to let Jason Howell know we care for him and wish him only the best. And that he use the light of our candles to find the strength within himself to leave TWiT and find a better more rewarding job. You can do it, Jason!
WE BELIEVE IN YOU.
TotalDrama will be playing this video of Jason Howell’s greatest moment on large screens at the vigil:
