Episode 9: Omar Doe (2016/12/08)
By David Cooper
This week David warmly welcomes Omar Doe (a pseudonym), his Palestinian barber. Contrary to what his Myspace says, he's not an anti-Semite. A strange woman named Breena calls in. She flip flops on the happiness of her childhood, and we add her mother who once went down to a basement and came up as a Jew for Jesus. David's ex-wife calls in and to David's dismay discusses his receding hairline with Omar. That went well, I think. The theme of dead pets from the past two episodes continues. David's brother asks Omar why he shaves in David's signature "speed groove" haircut. His brother also confesses to trying to kill a woman with a motorboat. Omar shares some real moments discussing addiction, a possible higher power, and twelve step programs. Omar's fiancée calls in and aren't they sweet! The episode nearly ends with no update on the SV650S, but at the last minute we find out about its pending DMV registration.
