Their constant need to cut people off, tell you that you are #1 and many other things that get under the skin of both Mark and DJ.

We as a society need to stop creating moments of hostility so we can soapbox in public for no reason other than our own voices. Well this is the main topic of the newest epsiode of the Q. In California, there was a situation going down and out of nowhere a lady starts filing the police and yelling at them for doing their job. Of course this leads to cumbaya songs and everyone happy.....right? WRONG! It leads to a phone being confiscated and destroyed, so we will discuss this further on the show.
Also, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are set to wage battle the first weekend of May in Las Vegas, but during his ramp up for the fight, Floyd claimed that he is equal to or better than Muhammad Ali.

Finally, its been a while and Bobby has upped his game as the two bring back the hot game of GAME ON/ GAME OFF. Both Mark and Bobby bring a couple APPS/Websites to get you familiar with and then Mark goes for the jugular singling out a section of society that tends to wear a specific look as if it is still cool.

Travis Cook, the Q resident Tea Party expert and extremist, joins the show to discuss the State of the Union. Ofcourse, Travis can't hold back and once again this leads to an egregious claim and extreme viewpoint shared by almost no one.
