Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
I try to go into each episode with an open mind, but I have a hard time believing Rhett (or) Link have much to do with planning episodes like this: clickbait title, thumbnail with the classic "red circle and arrow", bonus points for "FAKE".
Maybe I'm alone on this, but this episode just felt very off-brand and sad to me.
I agree with you that they did come at it sarcastically. It still seemed to me like they were using that as a device to try and finagle something episode-worthy from the weak topic.
I felt like the last couple episodes were kinda "stale." But the conspiracy theory one really did bother me. I'm a mom and to have that story about JonBenet Ramsey as part of their episode was really in bad taste, IMHO. Murdered children should be off limit. I was so shocked by that....especially since these guys are dads themselves. My family and I have been watching GMM for a couple years now and have enjoyed them...we look forward to watching everyday. This was so disappointing and made me really uncomfortable. Sad....:(
