I want an even more meta show.

Can someone get an audio clip from last nights show and force the hosts to listen to themselves while they are being forced to listen to themselves?
That would be AWESOME!

You mean a "self-referential loop", not "meta".  Meta is an unjoinable meta-concept: 1 meta plus 1 meta equals... 1 meta.

No, I meant meta as self-referential, see Dennis' image above.
