Starting point is 00:00:00 No, we keep doing this. Oh. Ah, no. We keep doing this. Dave, sometimes I feel like they know my name and they're just doing it because some asshole almost a decade ago just made it like a joke. What? Stop playing with wires. This is cool. It's like a public access show. My lights out. This is like what we're doing.
Starting point is 00:01:00 This is like porn decor. It's like between two ferns. One time I was watching a porn and a guy, his hand moved in the background to move a plant. And I was like, the fuck? They were like, it's cool, don't worry. It's kind of an editor, it's kind of not. I was one of the, this is my favorite star.
Starting point is 00:01:22 I was one of the writers on between two ferns, and Bruce Willis came in and didn't know it was a joke. And he kept kidding mad at Zach. How does that happen? So many things have to go wrong for that to occur. It's to dick the whole time. He didn't know. He didn't know. Oh, so good.
Starting point is 00:01:46 Hollywood people are fucking insane. Oh, he lives in Hollywood, so don't listen to him. There's a, I have a second-hand Bruce Will's story where he was, the director was like, yes, you just like walk by the bar, walk by all the people at the bar, and then hit your mark at the end, and he was like, all right, cool, so I'll go by, talk to the women, kissy kissy, go to the end of the bar. And the director was like, yeah, so just go through there,
Starting point is 00:02:11 go to the end of the bar. Hit your mark, he's like, right, kissy kissy, end of the bar. And he's like, just go to the end of the bar. And then the first shot they do it, he's like, walkin' and he's like, talkin' and then he like, kiss this this woman on the side of her cheek and the director's like walking and he's like talking and then he like kisses this woman on like the side of her cheek and the directs like Jesus fuck.
Starting point is 00:02:26 On the fucking mark, bro. He doesn't know where he is now. They find Steinem, you're listening to the dollop! Jesus Christ! It's the f**k! It's the f**k! F**k! And I was tagging all full jokes. I had bad tags. Yeah, I didn't say them. So good. No, not good. I realized I should have looked up at a pronounces guy's name. Willis.
Starting point is 00:03:20 Oh, sorry. What are you f**king Catholics will do in the audience? Coming out hot. You are a spicy little meatball. July 2, 1872. Year of our Lord. Jesus. Year of our Lord. Jesus.
Starting point is 00:03:47 I think he was going to not do it. J-Town. Jesus. Become like most. If you don't know, that's Jesus Christ, but for the kids. I really thought you were going to say now you know. Because a lot of the kids are starting to understand that Jesus... Pretty rad. Because he's called J-Town and he has jet skis and stuff in your head.
Starting point is 00:04:14 And he also opened up a firework store. Feel free to correct me, Catholics. What a crazy follow-up! By the way, Catholics, if I can extend an olive branch, if any of my pronunciations are of jumping. By the way, Jesus Christ opened a firework shop with whistling peets. He did. He did.
Starting point is 00:04:47 George Mandelaine. Mandeline? Mandeline. George Mandeline. See all my Catholics. Well, last episode will be about you. This is going to whistling peat into some crazy shit. Was born in a poor working class neighborhood on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. He grew up in... He grew up in...
Starting point is 00:05:19 Tenement housing. Okay. His father, Francis, was German. His mother Mary was Irish. George went to a La Sal Academy and then Manhattan College. After Manhattan he went to St. Vincent Seminary in Pennsylvania and then he went to, look at those this fucking crazy ass Catholic name. But pontifical urbaniana. How are you? How you spelling that last part a little bit?
Starting point is 00:05:52 Just not all of it. Urbaniana. You? How am I spelling it? How's it spelled? You are B-A-N-I-A-N-A. All right, yeah. Go ahead.
Starting point is 00:06:01 You're Barney. P. P. P. P. P. P. P. P. P.
Starting point is 00:06:12 P. P. P. P. P. P. P. P. P. P. P.
Starting point is 00:06:20 P. P. P. P. P. P. P, we're moving. He's just a set up. He's window dressing. So he comes back to the US, and I start to move it up the ranks.
Starting point is 00:06:34 In December 1897, he was... Daia... whoop. Are you...? Well, Daia-usian Counselor. Excuse me? Daya Asusian Counselor. Fuck you!
Starting point is 00:06:51 He's helping you! You asked for his help. And like most Catholic stories, it came from above. Hilariously, it's phonetically spelled out, and that's wrong. So, fuck you. What did he do? Tell me what he did. He put a he put a he helped you put a case on it but that's not what I have spelled out here and the the phonetic spelling. So I think he's lying. I don't think that
Starting point is 00:07:16 I think he's fucking with me. Why do you think that? That's crazy. Why would he just make it up when the phonetic spelling has been done here for me? You just live your life like an MMA fighter on his back. Oh, I don't. Yes you do. You do. You just always think the grant, you're just every, it's just you like that, you're Kroma God.
Starting point is 00:07:33 If I have someone and I say, he puts some phonetic spelling in there. You said you asked for help and this guy helped you. I did ask for help. That guy just gave it to me. Facts that guy. Much like the Lord Giveth. That's maybe J-town, dude. Fuck, that guy's got nothing to do with J-town.
Starting point is 00:07:50 That guy's some weird Catholic up in a booth. Petto. Oh. Big, I'm a big fan of Elon Musk. Anyway, thanks. Daya Scuscuscus or whatever. Dianetics. Nine years later, he was made a domestic
Starting point is 00:08:19 pilot. What? What, you're fucking looking up there for help. You're looking up there for help. You're looking up there for help. You just chastised the boy. And now you're looking up there, you're pining for his help. That wasn't help. That wasn't a help look.
Starting point is 00:08:37 That was to keep your mouth shut, or I'll take you out of that fucking balcony. Not the good way. Well, the good way. The Lincoln way. So this, uh, prillet, which is unique and cool, I don't know what it is, I don't care. He's just moving up. Okay. So what is it?
Starting point is 00:09:01 It's a title. It's some fancy Catholic shit. Okay. So he moved up until he was chosen to be the third archbishop of Chicago on December 9th, 1915. Okay. He's only 43. He's the youngest archbishop.
Starting point is 00:09:15 It's quite 43. It used to be a real old man. Yeah. No, it's that- That man looks 70 years old. Well, you try praying and fucking hitting the knees all the time. It takes it out of you.
Starting point is 00:09:27 Every now and then, just throw it a prayer for yourself, by the way. Could I just have one redeeming age element? So, George was a friend of the Catholic labor movement and told American Catholics, quote, our place is beside the working man. Here we go. Yeah, all right. All right, sure.
Starting point is 00:09:46 Yeah. Let there all that. We forget Jesus was a rug installer. He was formally installed as Archbishop on February 9th, 1916. Nice. Big. Now, Luigi. Whoa. Hello. 16. Nice, big. Now, Luigi.
Starting point is 00:10:05 Whoa, hello. Galeonni. Man of pubes. That's the rug you were talking about. Yeah, ha, ha. Jesus Christ, that looks like Tinder. Ha, ha, ha. Luigi was born in Verceli, Italy, in 1861. You studied law, but soon got into radical politics, and then learned about anarchism while
Starting point is 00:10:35 at university. So we're setting up our characters. Yeah. Okay. He began several worker organizations and handed out revolutionary literature. He led strike actions. So Luigi's activism put him under threat of arrests, so he fled to France and then Switzerland, but he keeps being a leftist, which led to him being deported
Starting point is 00:11:07 back to Italy, and then he just kept doing his activism shit, and the Italian government started cracking down on anarchists, arresting them all, and then Luigi was arrested and exiled to an island in the Mediterranean. I look up pictures. It's beautiful. I would be like, I'd say you're going back to Italy. Now you're going to a tropical island. I don't teach you.
Starting point is 00:11:31 You're like, you're like a phenomenal. That's all they knew. Yeah. After five years, he managed to escape and he went to Egypt, where he stayed with other Italian expats. But once again, Egypt, he's doing a shit. So Egypt is threatening to send him back to Italy. So he hops on a ship and takes off
Starting point is 00:11:51 in the United States. Oh boy, here we go. And he arrived in October 1901, which was right Whoa! Right after William Buckley. William McKinley was shot by an anarchist. William McKinley was a president. Come on. Sir? Yeah, he was a president. He was shot by an anarchist. Of America?
Starting point is 00:12:27 Yes. He's sure. United States of America. All right. You say so? So he keeps, Luigi keeps up with his ways in the U.S. and he starts calling for a general strike and overthrowing capitalism. Spoiler.
Starting point is 00:12:46 Yeah, it doesn't happen. It doesn't work. And it's going great, by the way. Yeah, well, is he so worried about? It's taking more people out of the poverty than anything in the ever. Looks at the burning planet. Ah! He continued, he continued his ways, trying to overthrow capitalism
Starting point is 00:13:11 during a strike of silk workers. Silk workers? Silk silk workers. Catapillars. Huh? What did you say? Catapillars. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:13:24 Right, known for their silk. Yep. They get into a fight with police. He's involved in Luigi's Get Shot in the face. Is that a problem? Nope. Okay. And then he gets arrested for inciting a riot.
Starting point is 00:13:43 He can be shot in the face, let him go. That's what they always do. You're under arrest. Yeah. So then he flees to Canada. And after a little time there, he heads back, he goes to bar Vermont. OK.
Starting point is 00:13:57 And Barry? Well, that's a stupid way to spell it, isn't it? Do you see, do you hear the hesitation in their correction voices? It's because of that. It should be. They're trying to just help, they're just helping a little. That was nice to that guy. No, you were not nice to that guy.
Starting point is 00:14:14 You fucking freaked out on that guy. Should've that guy like a fucking dick? No, you Christian bailed that guy. I treated him like a king. No, you shut the fuck up. Stop it. Yeah, no, you look all cutesy, stop it. Lost your mind on him.
Starting point is 00:14:31 So Barry, not spelled right. Yes, go with it. So there he started what became a very influential anarchist paper. He also published a bomb-making manual. There we go. Oh, shit. Ah, la salut, invoie!
Starting point is 00:14:51 It's bomb-making, but also I'm gonna fuck you slow. Making manual. That's right. You know? Slow, sweet love-making manual. Also bombs. Yes. I'll show you how to make a bomb,
Starting point is 00:15:09 and how to make a woman a com. It's a com. It's a com. A boat to go right off. It's a com and making a man. It's a rind. Shh. And let it widge a lot of the fuse.
Starting point is 00:15:21 It's a slow burn. It's a slow burn. It's a slow burnburd. It's a slow-burd. You gotta put your tongue on the wick to make it a fit. I started the tongue slow. I'm gonna go fast. I don't know why I'm wearing it. I've seen a harder thing to do the feud. I repeat, I repeat, let's say I'm a move.
Starting point is 00:15:40 I don't know why. I'm not this ABC shit. What do you do it? Listen. What are you 14? Listen. It's about to pop, but take cover. This is called health is in you.
Starting point is 00:15:59 So kind of what you're talking about. Health is in you, that's right. Don't worry, I got a vaccine that you're gonna wanna take. Don't even worry about a thing. They shot a part of my face off, but not of the part that you need. You are ready for a motor vaccine, I can go again. There we go.
Starting point is 00:16:22 A rival socialist. Apprented Luigi's location in his publication. God, the day when Andrew Kisversa Socialist. I mean, just great. Classic. Classic. Classic. What if we just kill the capitalist?
Starting point is 00:16:39 Hold on, let's get this right. Fuck you, Luigi. So he gets arrested and gets brought to New Jersey for trial. like, oh, don't, let's get this right. Fuck you, Luigi. So he gets arrested and gets brought to New Jersey for trial. But he walks due to a hung jury. And then he goes back to Vermont. He's making speeches. He's writing fiery anarchist articles.
Starting point is 00:17:00 He learned quite a few militant, he earns quite a few militant and devoted followers. Sure, okay. They're called a galleon asti, and they form cells. Okay. Anarchist caused quite a bit of chaos in cities and with cops. And by the time World War I came, there were a lot of headlines about real and not real anarchist bomb plots. Okay. Quite a few anarchists had immigrated from countries with state religions, so they had a lot of animosity toward religions and priests.
Starting point is 00:17:37 There we go. And what not? Mm-hmm. Starting to tee up some elements. Mm-hmm. to tee up some elements. During the Russian Revolution, and for years after, radicals, including anarchists in Russia, Mexico, and Spain, launched wars on religion. Yep. I'm going to allow it. J-Town.
Starting point is 00:17:59 I'm going to allow it. They desecrated churches, and they even executed Jesus statues. Oh my God, I think I'm going to say Jesus. Does that seem, where are you standing on that? Because for me, it's pretty cool. It's pretty cool. I'm like, we can probably, you know, do some other stuff.
Starting point is 00:18:19 I don't know what seems fun. I mean, it sure, it's fun. You shoot at the Jesus statue. Pull! I mean, they can't kill it. Well, you don't know. Let's see. Now things they did kill. They actually, in like Spain, churches and convents were attacked and burned.
Starting point is 00:18:41 The religious personnel there were killed and churches were destroyed. They even exhumed parts, sorry, they even exhumed the bodies of priests and nuns and displayed the corpses. Wow, wow, that's bold. I want to be sure about what the takeaway is. Yeah, that's that's father. That is father Hosek. Look at him, he's all gummy. He's been dead for a while.
Starting point is 00:19:10 He's a jerky man, huh? Yeah, it's, I don't really know. Look at this guy. What are we doing? No, get the point. He's been dead for like eight years. Yeah. It looks terrible, huh?
Starting point is 00:19:19 Yeah. Why did we do this? Alyssa making back the nun. What? Huh? It's like Playmobile. What'd you say? No, it sounded like you. Let's have a good time.
Starting point is 00:19:33 Well, I don't know if we have the same idea of the good time. You know what I mean? That's party. What? How well you want to get? How? What do I want to get? Gizzy, Gizzy.
Starting point is 00:19:42 No, I'm not good with the Gizzy, Gizzy. Good man. I don't like you. We each are going to weaken a Bernie, one of them. I don't think so. OK. There we go. So the celebration for George Mundeline becoming...
Starting point is 00:20:06 Mundeline? No one cares. Becoming the third Archbishop of Chicago began on February 3rd. Oh, no. 63 Chicagoans arrive in New York City, and then they all escort him back to Chicago. Holy shit. Wait, what? It's stupid. Why? I don't, I couldn't figure out why I couldn't fight.
Starting point is 00:20:29 Anything about it but just like. Six-three-billion came and they, let's go. It's just like to have like a, gotta have a big train of bros. Right, can't just like, what are you gonna be one? A nightmare. It's crazy. It's crazy. 16 hours.
Starting point is 00:20:43 It's, we didn and think about this. It's really dumb. We should have just done it like closer. Yeah. Could have been Indiana. That's not the reaction we're after. We were just there and no. I mean, I'm trying to shit on it too much.
Starting point is 00:21:06 I'm just saying it's not wooable. Talk about a cult. I mean, it's great. See you next year. So it took them six days to get to Chicago. Jesus Christ. But in the 60s for you guys, they're probably in, I mean, it's, I guess they're in cars at this point.
Starting point is 00:21:32 Yeah. Still horrible. Yes, terrible. Six days. What are you doing? Yeah, like three days. Yeah, I keep the momentum up. Six days, like, this is just so dumb.
Starting point is 00:21:41 I mean, there's no highways or anything. So it's probably just all dirt roads. Oh, fuck. Oh, whore. It's February also. Oh, that's perfect. That's the perfect time to do this, Beckbad. So they get to Chicago.
Starting point is 00:21:57 Now, there's going to be three receptions over several days. Oh, god. The first is on the 10th with 300 people at the University Club. At this event they're going to honor George and also Abraham Lincoln's birthday. What? So we're a little combo? And I put those together. And now we're the man of the hour. Many of the city's big shots are going, like Illinois, governor Edward F. Dunne. Dunne? Dunne or Dune, I don't fucking know.
Starting point is 00:22:36 Relax, Kekeks, governor, Charles Dienen, ex-mayer Carter Harrison, and then a bunch of Catholic pre-small, really. We only got a picture of this guy. Yeah, the other ones look normal. The other ones look normal. Jean Crohn's worked at the University Club as an assistant chef.
Starting point is 00:22:56 Here we go. We're fight clubbing right now, aren't we? Jean. Jean's about 30 years old. I can't believe I'm 30. She's telling me that other guy was fucking... 44 I can't believe I'm 30. So you're telling me that other guy was fucking... 44. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:23:08 And I'm 30. Yeah. I am 14 years younger than that other guy. Yeah. Who looked like he was a senior high old man. That's right. And I look like I'm Chef Boyard, he's come. That's right.
Starting point is 00:23:19 Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Can't believe I'm in a kitchen. Oh wow. There's one door for Anna, one for out. My favorite part is to say corner. Let him know I'm coming around. Yeah. Yeah. That makes sense. Otherwise, I'll be an accident I'll come look for all gene sure. That's my name right. No, I yeah gene. Yeah. Oh boy What's a lot of dishes?
Starting point is 00:23:54 Well, let's not actually your name. Oh That's an alias that you're using that's right Because your actual name is Nesta don Gaston Lemieux. Nesta Don de Gliot. Whoa, what? Nesta Don de Gliot. Oh boy, that's a lot of dishes. It's time to move.
Starting point is 00:24:17 We're stuck in a midnight. And Jean, you are an anarchist. That's right. Yeah. That's not a lot of dishes. Yeah. And I don't even say corn or... That's a ride.
Starting point is 00:24:43 You are a galleoniste. What are a galleoniste. What? A galleoniste. You follow Luigi. Where am I from? We'll get to that. Okay. Until then, I'll just kind of be like a little mysterious.
Starting point is 00:24:58 Yeah, big of a time. James has been working in the food industry for a while. He's been moving around the U.S. a lot. That's right. Places we know he worked include the Los Angeles Country Club, the Philadelphia Cricket Club, the Congress Hotel in Chicago. Sure. Easy.
Starting point is 00:25:18 And that was in May of 1915. At that time, he rented a boarding house, a room in the boarding house, a Pasquale lingo. Holy shit. What? Yeah, Pasquale lingo. Ah! By the way, that doesn't look like a spicy meatball.
Starting point is 00:25:38 That just looks like a meatball that someone dropped in Sriracha. It's a spasimly ball. It looks fucking disgusting. So this is Pasquale. Quote, I thought highly of him. I knew him as a chemist. Oh boy. Oh boy. What? Oh dear.
Starting point is 00:26:00 He was in his room nearly all the time. He never talked much. Oh dear. A quiet chem He was in his room nearly all the time. He never talked much. Oh dear. A quiet chemist is in his room a lot. Quite chemist. Oh, now that's as if it was immutable.
Starting point is 00:26:13 He said, Gene never had any chemist bottles around or anything, but he was a chemist. Well, and he had a lot of anarchist literature. Okay. He's so... Okay. All right, so it's time to burn, blow up some stuff, something like that. Hmm.
Starting point is 00:26:35 After he left Pasqualees, he moved into the house of Jim Legendre. Jim? Jim Poo? Legendre. Okay. I feel like some of these names you're just trailing off on. Legendra. Okay.
Starting point is 00:26:48 Jim said it first. Jean was all right. Quote. And then he went bugs on the subject of anarchy. He went bugs? Bugs. He went bugs on the... He's their way of saying bug, fuck.
Starting point is 00:27:04 Right. He's just kind of like freaking out. He went bugs. He went Bugs? That's their way of saying bug fuck. Right. He's just kind of like freaking out. He went Bugs. He went nuts. He went nuts. So Jim's wife, because he's a lovely woman, because he's got all the other kids literature around. She's like, we got to get him out
Starting point is 00:27:19 or he's going to get us in a trouble of some kind. So in December, 1915, he moves out. And then in January 1916, Gene runs into Joseph Marriotton, who is a butcher that he'd work with at the Congress Hotel. And he's like telling Jim about his new laboratory that he has. Should he be doing that?
Starting point is 00:27:42 He's like, he's still cooking. Well, kind of. I certainly love a mix of ingredients. Our snake is fun. He has a laboratory at the new boarding house at 2201 Prairie Avenue, which is the house of May Hayward. Okay. And he had the lab at his room and he asked Jim
Starting point is 00:28:07 to come check it out and see it. Does Jim have, is Jim just a butcher? Jim's a guy who worked with a butcher that he worked with. Yeah, so the butcher's like, Joe, come check out your little room. He did, that's what he said. And when he went by though. He was like, Jesus Christ, what are you trying to kill people?
Starting point is 00:28:20 Yeah! Well, he stopped by, but Gene was there because Gene was preparing for the big night with George Okay, so he sweeps by it. He's not even there. Yeah, so for George Munda line Lean for George for George Munda line's big celebration at the University Club Gene is making soup. I bet he is. Full soup? He is making soup.
Starting point is 00:28:50 Gene is making soup. He's making chicken soup. Oh boy. It's just an appetizer. He prepares it for... I bet it is. He prepares it for a couple of days. Jesus.
Starting point is 00:29:01 And then on the 10th, the day of the actual dinner, he calls in sick. Now about 20 minutes after the soup is served, one guest gets up and runs out very quickly. Okay, so we got some poop soup. Sorry, that's not sitting great. And then people's faces started turning white. Well, boy, some of that soup's not sitting right for me either. He said things right with the soup. The city librarian jumped up and made a b-line for the door, but he did quiet.
Starting point is 00:29:37 He didn't make it. He collapsed unconscious before he got to the door. Oh shit, so we got a bad batch. Jean, what did you put in here? A poison. Is anyone here allergic to that? I'm a chemist, huh? Corner.
Starting point is 00:29:57 Many people now start complaining about stomach pains. Bank presidents, politicians, churchmen, they all start running out of the room in pain. Oh my God. They run into the back alley and start vomiting. Oh, that's awesome. That's awesome. Now, Dr. John Murphy, he's actually a really famous doctor. He quickly set up a, quote, emergency field hospital. Well, and now people are throwing up in the corner. So Thomas O'Shaughnessy, so he's in charge of all the art arrangements at the banquet. Don't you throw up on my
Starting point is 00:30:37 paites! That's right. Quote, come here, mad and blames, run out, son! Quote, immediately after the first course, I was taken ill. I was the first to leave the table. So he's the first, oh, maybe just the table. I thought it was bad ventilation and went out on a fire escape. I became dizzy, went inside and started downstairs. And one of the lower halls halls I became deathly sick. An attendant found me and called the physician who administered an ametic.
Starting point is 00:31:09 What? Ametic. Ametic. Ametic. And had me sent to the hospital. Wait, what did they administer? It's a non-throwy-upy thing, right? Or like an apicac.
Starting point is 00:31:20 Or an apicac. Or an apicac. It's a throwy-upy thing. It's an apicac. It makes you vomit. No, okay. It's a puke-y puke. They gave him an epa-cack. Yeah, because they... So he was like, I'm violently ill. I think I might be sick.
Starting point is 00:31:29 They're like, this will make you barf. He was like, no, not what are you doing? I'm not a doctor. I have a prank show on YouTube. And... I mean, because they're trying to get everyone to throw up now because that's what they're worried about. They are? Oh, get it out of them.
Starting point is 00:31:43 Yep. Oh, great job. Another doctor now thinks that the cause might be the animal fat used in the soup stock. So they're still like, it was a bad recipe. It's bad animal. It was bad chicken. So he's like, maybe they ate too fast.
Starting point is 00:32:02 Maybe the animal fat went sour, is what he said. God, did they use the wrong spoon? So Dr. Murphy goes into the kitchen and he made a quote, emetic, emetic of mustard to induce vomiting for those unable to. He made a mustard. So he made it quick.
Starting point is 00:32:20 We need to make a dipping sauce. Yeah. Why don't you just give it to him? Of course not. What are you talking about? This must be perfect. It's a real shitty one. Give it to John. It's a battle and they come and throw up.
Starting point is 00:32:30 Here we are. Really bad one. Perfect. Here we are. Give me some chicken tenders right now. So he makes this big batch. Does this taste good to you? I don't like it.
Starting point is 00:32:42 It's amazing that a doctor just goes to a kitchen and is like, I need stuff to make people throw up. Yeah. And he's like making a dipping sauce. He's making it. Jimmie Thousand Island. Give me a mustard then. Hurry up.
Starting point is 00:32:53 Mustard. Whisker. Let's go. So he probably saved a few lives doing this. Saved a few lives. So we're. Oh boy. It's legit.
Starting point is 00:33:03 Quote. So probably someone here is like, yeah, that was my grandpa. And I'm like, yeah. Imagine. Quote, scores of guests were sick and some violently, but only one guest, Father John O'Hara of Brooklyn, died. You know it's bad when Dave and I are like, what's wrong with you? Woo! And he's not here tonight! I did, I did look that up because there's a few places that he died and some that didn't.
Starting point is 00:33:40 I did find a news. Is it you? What? Some, some sources say he died, some say he didn't. Oh, some say he's send it. So I did find a story and it looks like he died a couple weeks later, but they did blame the poisoning. Okay.
Starting point is 00:33:57 There'll be no more reacting. And it could have been a lot worse. Months senior Evers told the Tribune that some people were, quote, so engrossed in conversation that they didn't eat the soup. Oh, can you fucking imagine? Yeah. Oh, just being one of those annoying people who was just like, if you did Coke at the event, that is the best Coke I ever did.
Starting point is 00:34:24 I was eating his soup and I was like, put them on my other body, like he was not even Did Coke at the event? That is the best Coke I ever did. I was eating a soup and I was like, put them on my other body. Like, he was not even going to show up, but he's cool, too. If we can link up, do you have a business card or something? Are you cool? You're turning green. What?
Starting point is 00:34:35 Are you cool? Yeah, so I was thinking maybe we could like, you know, honestly, like, I'm ready to eat that soup. I like it, Gaspacho style, so I like that everything cool. It's very good. So that's what I'm going to do. But basically what I was saying is I came here to network at this event.
Starting point is 00:34:48 My whole point was the sort of network. And I wanted to like, oh yeah, there you go. Oh, what is it? Yeah, cool. So I'm trying to like find two friends. Are you, yeah. Oh, wow. That chicken looks kind of shredded.
Starting point is 00:35:04 Yeah, yeah, there you go. Oh, yeah, are you coming? Dude, what's going on with you? Are you good? Hey, do you have a business card? Do you have a business card? Do you have a business card? Look, it's with this guy.
Starting point is 00:35:26 Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh You do a business card. We should link up. We should link up. Yeah, let's link up. Yeah. Fucking beautiful. Yeah, hell yeah. Hell yeah. Oh man.
Starting point is 00:35:43 Yeah, I'm just trying to find my foot in this town, honestly, a lot of my buddies are doing pretty good, but I'm still trying to figure it out for myself. Ah, ah. Yeah, I know, man. So crazy. I didn't see myself here five years ago. I really didn't.
Starting point is 00:36:05 Honestly, I went to school to learn how to tap. I know that sounds crazy, and I'm not even like, I don't even know. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa All right, how about this? Monday, I'm gonna come to your store, and I just wanna talk, and we don't need to do it now. I'm personally, I'm excited to enjoy this shindig myself, but all I'm trying to do is just figure out a way to like, come on, dude. Here. I hate it like, oh come on dude.
Starting point is 00:37:06 Here. Do a bump, do a bump. There you go. Welcome back buddy. Fuck. Yeah. Oh shit, hey. Yeah. Is that clumbian?
Starting point is 00:37:22 No. That's... No, not at all. Did you notice that I was dying? Uh-huh. Yeah, this is the stuff we put in the soup. I'm Jean. Pfft.
Starting point is 00:37:36 Oh. Pfft. Oh. Oh. Pfft. Pfft. Pfft. Pfft.
Starting point is 00:37:44 Pfft. Pfft. Oh. Pfft. You know the buster too is like man this is a bit of a fucking nightmare. Hey guys we got a lot of poop to clean up at the dishes too. I mean people are throwing up everywhere. Right. I'm sure they're throwing up on the tables. Oh yeah. Like it's got to be. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:38:03 So some people just had a spoonful when people started having cramps and they're like, oh, I'm not going to eat this. There's probably a couple Chicago guys are like, power throw it. Come on, push yourself. Come in, get that a finish line, then we get the entry. Everybody's got to eat it before they're gonna bring out the man, of course. Come on. Avoid the chemical chunks if you got it. You know this is poison? Of course I know.
Starting point is 00:38:39 Come on. After a while the guests who could went back to their tables and the evening resumed. What? Who the fuck? That is awesome. That's awesome. That Chicago resiliency. That really is. That really is.
Starting point is 00:38:59 But no more eating. Everyone was like, no shit. Drinks on late. I don't need the entree, thank you. I mean, I did right chase. George stood up and said, there's one guy walking around finishing the soups. Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,
Starting point is 00:39:18 that'll be fine. Woo! That's some spicy shit! Pepper! I'll say when! George said to the crowd, while we have seen one hundred or more of the great men here tonight, falter and fall by the wayside,
Starting point is 00:39:39 it is to be noted that the church and state remained serene. It augurs well for Illinois. So he's in charge, it's never sick, but it was assumed that he was the target. Yeah. Well, I mean, I would assume, but you would also, there's also a drop it off.
Starting point is 00:39:57 There's also the process. Be like, yes, the honor soon. Right, yeah. There's tons of heavy. Don't just be like, whoa, man, these waiters, they're tearing it. But there's tons of heavy hitters, like it's like, sure, it's the, it's the all of heavy. Don't just be like, whoa man, these waiters, they're tearing it. But there's tons of heavy hitters, like it's like, it's the, it's all of them. So, Shkog authorities had 150 cops,
Starting point is 00:40:13 guard George for the next few days. What a fucking over correction. I mean, have you ever met cops? I know, but it's like, this even this is fucking stupid. I mean, it's pretty dumb. Some of them were on horseback, like they just, he's like, I ate, can I go to the bathroom? Hold on, let's float it up.
Starting point is 00:40:33 Felt it, we're in the house. Shhh. Quiet. You're gonna upset the horse. Ah! Are you good? I'm, yeah, I'm fine. Thank you.
Starting point is 00:40:47 Water? No. I just really prefer to be alone. So we got your back. No, I don't need my back. The goal is in blue. Back in you. It's weird.
Starting point is 00:40:59 Your horses are shitting all over the house. Hey, but they didn't need the soup. There's literally, there's 150 guys. And don't worry, that is completely normal for horses. In my home. They'll do that, yeah. The horses are gonna get in. 1,300 square feet.
Starting point is 00:41:12 This is bad. Yeah, no, it is disgusting. No, it's a real shit show. But we're here to make sure that nothing happens to you ever again. And I, you have it under my authority that nobody's ever going to get to you again. You will be surrounded by all of us for the rest of your life.
Starting point is 00:41:34 That's true. Hunter, no. Yeah. Thank you. No. Absolutely. This is how it's going to be. You realize that cops are the ones who nail Jesus to the cross,
Starting point is 00:41:44 right? It was true the whole time we did it we said stop resisting The guy had two grams of heroin on him we had no choice It was just in an alleyway getting his crucifix. Look, and that junk put in it right at some of those stigma dolls. And crowd of thorns, they thought it was a ball cappy, was so high. You telling me that body came from that eating that is heroin chic, if I've ever seen it, my friend? It just seems like a bit of a stretch.
Starting point is 00:42:31 Well, I'll tell you a bit of a stretch, shit, it's gonna happen when you're in for a few days. That's why he liked it. That's what it did. Look, I don't want to get into it. The point is, you ain't got nothing to worry about. I'm gonna sleep with you on the horse, yeah. No. Yeah, me and the horse are gonna lay in your bed
Starting point is 00:42:49 with you tonight. Make sure nothing happens to you. And I don't know if you've ever slept with a horse, they sleep standing up. But this one will get laying down, but he's gonna freak out. They ate it. Yeah, I don't want any of this. They think they're drowning. What? Yeah. They think they're drowning. What? Yeah.
Starting point is 00:43:06 They think they're drowning when they lay down. Yeah, or the mind of an equine is a puzzle that not even the best detective can put together. Can I just ask you a question? Can you ask me a question? How could they live this long if they always thought they were drowning? No, no, I sleep at bed, Jack. Look, George. I don't want, I sleep at bed, Jack. Look, George. So you put your...
Starting point is 00:43:26 I don't know what this is. What? You've put your horse at a bed before. Yeah, man, I sleep with my horse quite frequently. Even though he thinks it's water. That is dry. Yeah, he thinks it's water. There's a water bed a lot of time, buddy.
Starting point is 00:43:39 Did you? Huh? You have a water bed. I do, well, I have both. I've done quite well. You think that doing quite well is having two beds? Yeah. One water, one sand. She says sand?
Starting point is 00:43:55 Yeah. Yeah, my goal is to have a bad filled with every element. And I don't want to peel back the curtain too far but good happened. My wife left but she wasn't I'm bored with the change. Well you know a sand bed is just like having ground. Earth. Yeah it's like having... Earth. Well, it's ground. It's a ground bed. I'm not going to split hairs with your friend. I'm here to make sure you're okay.
Starting point is 00:44:32 And that's all matters. Well, it's not... Would you like something to eat? No. Good, because you're not allowed to eat on my watch. You weapon your nose. You got a cold? You weapon your neck.
Starting point is 00:44:44 You got an itch? Mostly just want to be left alone so I could sleep with Jesus Christ. No. He's awesome. I think if he was around he'd be a cop. No, I don't think so. I think you'd be a cop. Absolutely not. You guys are the ones who killed them. Again, he was resisting. Duh! So it doesn't take them long to realize that Gene Crohn's the soup maker who had made the soup
Starting point is 00:45:23 had called in sick the day of the dinner. We tasted the soup. The manager of the club. The manager of the club. It's really weird that he called in sick. I would show up. Yeah. Just be like, whoa, what happened?
Starting point is 00:45:39 Unless you're already on the lamb. Yeah, I guess. So the manager of the club, HP Dohenny, starts looking into gene. This is the part where it's really weird, because I like I do other things that only the guy who put the story together can say. So now it gets strange.
Starting point is 00:45:59 I'm ready. I'm ready. How many people died from soup? But now it'll be weird. But you read this story and all these people got sick from the soup. There's a cook missing who made the soup and then no one investigates it, except for the manager of the club. Like the cops, the health department, no one,
Starting point is 00:46:17 they're just like, you know what, you handle this. 150 cops protecting George, not one peels off to go be like, hey, what the fuck, what the fuck's with you? Hey, matriety Colombo matriety Colombo get a get a fuck a hospital chemist. What hey? So HP dohenny starts an investigation and At 4 a.m. in the morning, the university club issues a statement saying a culinary accident was not responsible. So this thing is not a regular kitchen.
Starting point is 00:46:50 It's not food poisoning or a fucked up pot or whatever. Two more oregano is finally taken off the list of possibilities. Law do you guys blame in the garlic? It's not the fucking garlic. It's not bad chicken. They say the soup has been tampered with. Originally, there were supposed to be 200 guests, but at the last minute, it was expanded to 300. So staff added water to the soup. Oh, shit. There wasn't enough arsenic after it was diluted. Oh my god. To kill.
Starting point is 00:47:28 And a lot of people later call this a miracle. They would go, it's the, it's the, You got to love them Dave. You got to love them. They're like, he work at mysterious ways. A guy died and you all shit your suits. Wow. So had to just spend the 200,
Starting point is 00:47:43 it probably would have died, some of the few. Oh man. The club manager, Dohenny, goes to Jean's boarding house and talks to May Haywood. And she says Jean left the day before the banquet and has not come back. Right, yeah. So it's now 3 a.m. on and the bank would happen on Thursday night. Okay, so it's been a good It's been two days of the fucking matrix day to get from New York to Chicago So he's probably like in I don't know champagne. Yeah Don't he he goes into Gene's room quote, I was astounded by what I saw.
Starting point is 00:48:26 The room was a veritable chemical laboratory. There were numerous bottles, and many of them contained poisons. The idea that he didn't fucking take apart any of this. He was like, I don't know. He just ran. Yeah, but you could do both. I think his name's not Jean, so I don't think he cares. Oh, still you'd be like, look, just put up some posters
Starting point is 00:48:48 of quarterbacks and get out of here. Ha, ha, ha. There were also a lot of anarchist books in the room. They found that he was enrolled in the Scranton Correspondent School to study chemistry. It's not looking great. Dohenny reported now to the police what he had found? They're like, unfortunately we're unable to hear you right now.
Starting point is 00:49:13 We've got eight circles around George. Unfortunately, George has been taking ill horse-kicked him in the head last night while he slept. He's gone. George has passed away. That's how Jesus wanted it. I guess. George unfortunately died with a crown of shoes.
Starting point is 00:49:34 So the federal department of justice is now brought in and they do a more detailed search of Gene's room. And they find, I mean, breaking bad. Yes. They're like, what the fuck? Yeah. They find four cans of explosives in one drawer.
Starting point is 00:49:52 One was soaked and had a fuse. It was ready for use and could have blown up the house. There was also nitroglycerin and there were enough batteries for all the explosives and there was arsenic mercury and cyanide potassium. So he had a fuck, he had it all. Yeah, I mean, you're telling, yeah, that's what I'm saying. He couldn't have thrown some of this in the garbage.
Starting point is 00:50:12 Yeah. Just like, you know, put up a May West poster or something. Yeah. In the Chicago police announced they would find Jean-Dead by his own hand. They said they would? Yes. Look, we've done it.
Starting point is 00:50:27 We've done it two day investigation and look, this guy's going to kill himself. What kind of... Why would you even do that? We found it. We went through all of the stuff. He's going to get it. What do you mean, like, we're going to get him and then if you found that, be like, boom, we did it.
Starting point is 00:50:41 No, he's a classic rub himself, how kind of guy. He's a... I don't mean the masturbation. I mean, he's going to kill himself. Because Rub him out makes it sound like he's going to die from masturbation. Well, it's how we, it's a Chicago term. That he's going to rub himself out? Yeah. That means kill yourself, but in New York, it means jerk off.
Starting point is 00:51:01 Where's Chicago? Yeah, I know where we are. Anyway, back to the press conference, he's going to probably rob himself out. I mean kill himself. Should you use different terminology? And I'm actually from New York and we don't call masturbating that. He's going to stroke himself out. I mean, he's going to die from some sort of stroke related. He's going to jerk. What? He's going to jerk it.
Starting point is 00:51:34 He's neck. That's it for him. Sorry, it's just a bizarre call. These are just medical terms. Are you just the guy who runs the hotel this event took place at? I, uh, yeah. Should you even be up here?
Starting point is 00:51:55 No, I, uh, I shouldn't be, but I got so excited. I found all this stuff. I found the explosives and I found some really naughty books. I've been reading them. Sir, sir, stop having a press conference. Now, sir, I'm wearing ladies. Stop. I'm wearing ladies undergarments.
Starting point is 00:52:24 I would like to explicitly say they are moist, I'm wearing ladies under garments. I would like to explicitly say they are moist panties. Jesus Christ, who moistened them? Which I found in one of his drawers. Pre-moistened or you moistened them since you were up here? They came moistened, which I think is... That could be a chemical. I think it's part of the chemistry.
Starting point is 00:52:48 Yeah, well, you probably shouldn't put them up your asshole. They haven't been up my asshole. Yeah, okay. But they are copying my balls. You like the third weirdest cop in this story? Pfft! Interesting story, I had not actually a cop. Right, hotel manager.
Starting point is 00:53:11 I was just dropping off some letters. Investigators immediately began looking for associates of crones and looking for a wider plot. Now there's been anarchist bombings in 1915, including the US Senate reception room being blown up. Do that again. And. So where the parliamentarian is?
Starting point is 00:53:40 How super cool is it that a bunch of them bought defense industry stock Right when the attacks happened Because Congress is fucking rad Anywho May Haywood said a dark man with a small, small mustache would come to visit Jean sometimes. Of course. Joe Marienton came to the boarding house because he heard Jean was sick. So it's a guy stopped him by. Sure. He drank some of his soup. So police immediately arrest him and put him in jail.
Starting point is 00:54:27 And Mary to explain that they're just friends. And he was at work the day before with Jim LaGiandra, who's the guy whose wife you were upset about. I was an upset about her. You are. And I was very supportive. I think that's great. And Jim was reading the paper and said, quote,
Starting point is 00:54:46 Ah, that stuff reads like the doings of Jean. Hmm, it's not good. So it's a guy reading a paper about a bunch of people getting secondings. That's sad. That's so... He is the try to kill people with so... That's so jeep! That's classic jeep. So Mary to stop by to see what was up and he told the Tribune, quote,
Starting point is 00:55:08 I am a Frenchman and a Catholic. He was very upset. A cop, quote, he had an idea he wanted to whip someone, but he cooled down at the prospect of a cell. So this guy comes. He's got his hot. And he gets arrested. But then they have to let him go.
Starting point is 00:55:31 And the paper interviews him and he tells the paper, he's a Frenchman in the Catholic. All very normal shit. Now Pasquale Lingo, who's a spastic football. He's also a question. He tells the dripune quote, I am an Italian and a Catholic. What's they have these talking points of like first unationality and then you're a Catholic?
Starting point is 00:55:55 Every single guy in these stories, immediately announces his... I'm a Catholic. Yes. I couldn't do it. Where he's from and what? I'm a Catholic. And so I think that's why, I think we're saying I'm not an anarch Yes. I couldn't do it. Where he's from and what? I'm a Catholic. And so I think that's why, I think we're saying I'm not an anarchist.
Starting point is 00:56:09 Yeah, right. Because they immediately are all like, or else the reporter's like, are you, what are you? Ask them. Yeah, and you can't just say you're a Catholic. No, you can't blur it out because people can't kill you. What? He explained Gene had lived in their boarding house and didn't have any poisons or explosives then.
Starting point is 00:56:28 So, the cops go to see Jim and he said Gene had left because the room was very nice. That's why he moved out. He loved it too much. You know how that is when you find a perfect situation, you got to run from it because you don't feel like you deserve it. It's one of those. He's got self-esteem issues. Hey, believe me, I wanted to stay here,
Starting point is 00:56:47 but unfortunately it's perfect. He said he didn't feel right living a good room when so many poor people were living in bad rooms. Interesting. Jim also said, quote, I am French Canadian and a Catholic. I have heard Crohn's is Belgian and was born in Germany. So there's a lot of problems with Jim's story.
Starting point is 00:57:11 At one point he said he had not seen Jean in a year, another time he said he was sick and not at work, and so he knew stuff. Right. He did say when he read about the poisoning, he immediately thought of Jean, and then they found the dark man with the mustache. So this is John Allegrene, and he was locked up after he admitted he went to anarchist and socialist meetings with Jean.
Starting point is 00:57:35 Okay. He also said he had seen Jean's chemistry set up, but no explosives or poison. It was just a- He has a lot of powders. He loves sulfur nitrate. I don't know what it is. He was a horrible cook. Allegreny in the Tribune quote, I knew Crohn's very well.
Starting point is 00:57:54 I met him when we were both rumors at Miss Ligno's. I am Italian. Well, you're both what? When we were both roaming at Miss Ligno's. Oh, I think so. Rumors, okay. I am Italian. I am Italian. I am Italian?
Starting point is 00:58:07 I know him very well. We met when we were roaming at the boarding house. I am Italian. T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T No. He said he and Jean had gone to hear Emma Goldman speak days before, but he never thought Jean would take a life. So they put together a picture of Jean. Got him. Got him. Names Jean Max Chon, and Julius Hans, Jean, Eugene,

It's every color possible, or it's rainbow, stricter, it's a mohawk, or he's got a mullet. He might be one nostril. He might be two. We're open to three.
Starting point is 00:59:27 Could be a black guy. Hat-wise, most likely a diaper? Could be a ball cap. Eyes. Doesn't got him. Maybe he's got one. He might be looking for a cyclops. Or three.
Starting point is 00:59:41 Or three, but not two. Maybe two. Fingers. We're looking for a cyclops. Or three. Or three, but not two, maybe two. Fingers, we're looking at 10. Classic case of 10. Or 12. Could be 12, won't be 11. We're looking at double thumbs, that's a maybe.
Starting point is 00:59:57 Okay. Anyway, you sketched that up, boys. Yep, draw them up, boys. It's your only what you got. There you go. He's also got a care bear rainbow in his tummy. So, let's get it right. He's got the nose of a pig man.
Starting point is 01:00:19 Skye could smell poison a mile away because he's making it. So, they said he spoke at IWW meetings, the wobblies. But then the IWW said, no, he didn't. Nope, nope. We never saw a guy with red yellow, white or brown hair. We never allowed a Jean Maxx or a John or a John or a Julius or a Hans or brown hair. We never allowed a gene max or a genre, a genre, a Julius or a Hans or a gene. Or a Eugene. It's writing, we're described by a different... I like how they put them in the chef outfit like it's like, he will
Starting point is 01:00:56 most likely be dressed as a chef. We're looking for him to wear the thing he wore on the day of the crime. He has that sort of wrestler vibe. He will be dressed as his character. He will be a chef. Don't think he's that whole the tongs and a spatula. He probably is or a big old wooden spoon. He like, he enjoys stirring, adding pepper, salt being.
Starting point is 01:01:29 Sir, yes. Do you think he might take the chef hat off? Absolutely not. This guy was cooking at the time of the crime. You plebs don't understand that 80% of criminals wear the outfit or the occupational outfit they had on during the crime. So he will be dressed as a chef, he will have on the weird button, chef, jacket. He will probably have marinara on his chest. We're not locked into that.
Starting point is 01:02:01 We're open to maybe a clean coat. Is it true? He'll be carrying a very large spoon. He will be ladled. not locked into that, we're open to maybe a clean coat. Is it true? We'll be carrying a very large spoon. He will be ladled most likely. We expect him to be armed and ladled. It's very likely. You'll probably have a set of knives.
Starting point is 01:02:20 This guy is the real deal. He has no way you could take it off. No way. No way. No, I got it. Even if he takes it off, he's probably got some sous-gear underneath. Sorry, did you say sous-gear? Yeah.
Starting point is 01:02:37 So you think you could also be a sous-chef? Potentially. We're open to a lot of things right now. Yep. You now. Yep. Okay. Yep. I think you might be the worst. Why don't you shut the fuck up?
Starting point is 01:02:53 How about that? How about that? How about if you shut the fuck up for a minute? I'm just saying that we might be dealing with a guy who has a frying pan for a hand. Everything about that? Yeah, no. He's stupid. He's stupid, man. You're stupid?
Starting point is 01:03:07 It's just to ask questions. OK, I know. I don't do a lot of these. You're fucking idiots. You think, yeah, what do you think he's wearing? What a dumb answer. I think he's probably dressed like a Sherpa at this point. A Sherpa.
Starting point is 01:03:22 Those are mythical. point. Sure, but those are mythical. He's dressed like a Michelin starship. We're a thousand percent. So one paper described his writings as quote a library of hatred. He was known to often talk and write about social inequality at work. Oh, the hatred. Disgusting. Papers kept saying he had literature by Emma Goldman. 400 cops were now searching Chicago for gene.
Starting point is 01:04:00 Who's defending George? There's 30 of us, but we're pretty worried. George, are you okay? We'll get our numbers back up pretty soon. Don't worry. Do you need anything? You got to go pooping? No thanks, good. Do you need anything? Do you want to spoon full of water? Alone, I want to be alone. Do you want a little bit of water? No. Do you want one of us to lay with you? Nope. Do you want to do a puzzle?
Starting point is 01:04:27 You want to do one of your puzzles? Oh, fuck. Well, no. Should we do a puzzle together? No. You want to play with blocks? I want to be alone. Do you want to do blocks?
Starting point is 01:04:35 Let's do flashcards. Let's get those math numbers up. Come on. We're worried about you. We love you. Look, I know it sounds weird, but the 30 of us who are sticking around, we kind of feel like your dad. I know you're a man.
Starting point is 01:04:47 It's been 40s and looks like 31. I feel like your dad. Let's play battleship. Come on, no more bullshit. I love you, buddy. Okay, bye. Let's go throw the ball out back. No, you throw the ball out back.
Starting point is 01:05:01 Where'd you go, Will? Look at it. Yeah. I love you the fucking hands up. So the police announced they had uncovered a plot to blow up public buildings all over Chicago, including the city utility. And they also said that they were planning to blow up St. Patrick's Cathedral in New
Starting point is 01:05:27 York. They said it was an international conspiracy headed by anarchists in Rome and cops tried to pay an over 30 suspicious church fires on Jean even though he didn't live in Chicago when many of them happened. Yeah, but that you could do it through soup. Yeah. The correspondence. Yes. In Chicago. Now fire works.
Starting point is 01:05:50 Fire could be, you can delay fire. In Chicago, they tried to tie him to the haymarket affair by saying he knew two of the widows, one being Lucy Parsons. one being Lucy Parsons. When asked about Jean, Emma Goldman said quote, it is too laugh, the man is not an anarchist, he is a lunatic. And a terrible cook. The worst cook. So they now nicknamed him the super anarchist. So you P E R?
Starting point is 01:06:26 LAUGHTER LAUGHTER Love it. But he seems to have just vanished. Sure. So the manhunt expands. And it's across the US now. They're worried he could be anywhere.
Starting point is 01:06:44 A hotel in Binghamton, New York said they thought Jean had been an assistant chef. Quote, one day the whim seized him to have his own likeness snapped, and he had one of his kitchen comrades in the camera. So that's where the one photo they have of Jean. That is a photo? Well, it's a sketch of a photo. Well, that's nothing. Draw this picture. Can I have the picture?
Starting point is 01:07:12 No. Can you finish the picture? No. Anyway, that's him. You've spent so much time on the background. Yeah. How about you filling like the facial features? I really like the time on the background. Yeah. How about you filling the facial features? I really like the depth of the background. What's not a depth thing? But it's got killed like, he killed people with the soup. But I'm thinking like, you know, there's a light in front of him
Starting point is 01:07:38 and then one off to the other side. Jesus Christ. And it's just right on his face. And then there's contours in the hand. Stop walking me through this. And and probably because it's a kitchen so it's probably a darker background. It looks like a boardwalk sketch. He looks so innocent. He killed people with soup. Which is funny when I say it. people with soup, which is funny when I say it. Ha ha ha ha. God damn.
Starting point is 01:08:08 So they're looking everywhere, and the photo, and the artist sketch hit papers across the country. Okay. So Jean, or not Jean, starts writing taunting letters to new newspapers. Oh, pointy. or not Jean starts writing taunting letters to newspapers. It's probably just people having fun and other anarchists and they're mocking cops
Starting point is 01:08:36 for not being able to find Jean. Disgusting. And letters are coming in from all over the country. Oh shit, he's signing it. He's signing it the wrong's signing it. The wrong way. I was gonna say, he's buzzing with a J. That's a G. Okay. So sometimes you get, but sometimes you get mixed up
Starting point is 01:08:53 when you're writing a letter. But he's spilling it G-E-A. How much you ever mixed up your own. I don't even think that's a way, do you spell it? Have you ever spelt caret, with a J? Yeah, many times. Yeah, so it slips.
Starting point is 01:09:03 Yeah, happens all the time, yeah. No, Jerry asshole Letters are being sent to the New York Times with New York Post stamps on them In them Gene explains how he poisoned the soup and how he liked to stroll around very close to police stations explains how he poised in the soup and how he liked to stroll around very close to police stations. Ah, yeah, enjoy. I like to include poisoning soups
Starting point is 01:09:28 and strolling around cop shops. I said, I like, son of a bitch, he's right, Nairas. Yo, what are you doing? It's walking, get him. He was writing a lot of letters. He wrote letters straight to police. They weren't all male from New York. There are some of them from different places. So New York loses its fucking mind. The
Starting point is 01:09:50 UP reports that the city in the city, 10,000 cops are searching for gene. Jesus Christ. Quote. All avenues of escape closely watched. The most elaborate police net ever spread in New York was today put into operation in an effort to apprehend Jean Crones, the anarchist. Every cop in New York City was now carrying a photo of Jean. At the same time Chicago cops were adamant that he was still in Chicago. Why? I don't know.
Starting point is 01:10:26 I wouldn't have announced that there were 10,000, I'd be like, we got 10 looking for him. Yeah. It's going to be like, everyone is looking for him. All he can about is G. New York police inspector, the commissioner, and the captain of the bomb squad met to plan to keep Jean from escaping from New York City. He's not in New York City. Well, then it worked. They placed cops at all railroad stations, public buildings, and museums. Museums?
Starting point is 01:10:58 Yes. We think you might be dinosaur bones. Oh. Why is he... They said they feared he would show his quote, maniacal tendency and will try to explode a bomb before quitting the city. Oh, okay. So they're like going... They kept an eye on all reading rooms because they were worried he would try to brush up on his chemistry. Oh fuck, that is...
Starting point is 01:11:38 Did I call it cute? He put an eye on the library, so, hey, when I, he's either going to be lighting a bomber reading about how to do it. We're not idiots. No, I think you're actually idiots. Yeah, well, that's what we want him to think. Set the honey trip. No, you're genuinely idiots is what I'm saying.
Starting point is 01:12:01 You're watching a library. Yeah. Even when it's closed. You're genuinely idiots is what I'm saying. You're watching a library. Yeah. Even when it's closed. Could be in space. Or it could be in the ocean. What? You say it could be in the ocean?
Starting point is 01:12:24 Yeah. Like drives you crazy about a case like this. Like aquaman? Yeah. Yeah. It could be a merman at this point. Okay. Making soup.
Starting point is 01:12:42 Or a ceviche. Nope. Okay. Across the US, Gene Crones became a boogie man. People were seeing him everywhere. Especially for a month after the soup poisoning. In Boston, he looked like a guy who was arrested for having dynamite.
Starting point is 01:13:07 For having what? Dynamite. Okay. Sure. What's that guy's deal? I don't know. Oh, he was like a robber who had dynamite to blow something up. So, they're like, it's got to be him.
Starting point is 01:13:20 All right. And then these headline, Gene Crohn's at Wakashah, handwriting on a wall. Gene Crones now located at the bottom of the lake. I fucking told ya! He's aquatic! That's what he's doing! He's got gills! Holy shit! This guy's everywhere. Starting to think there's two or three of this guy. Over the next month, he was seen in Oxford, North Carolina, Leadville, Colorado, Marbley, Missouri.
Starting point is 01:13:51 And Iowa City Chef was arrested because he looked like the photo of Gene, and he was held for two days. So it's just a guy in a fucking chef's house. Anyone any bad chef is like, oh, Jesus, they're like made bad soup. He's like, no, no, it's just bad soup. Like, jean. Did you dare?
Starting point is 01:14:11 Another chef from Chicago is arrested when he passed through Springfield, Ohio. Now obviously these guys were never him. It's just some random guy being harassed cause he does the chef. Right. And then they would arrest him and then people would freak out and then they'd arrest him and then people would freak out
Starting point is 01:14:25 and then they'd let him go. But everywhere all over the country, people are losing their mind. Some people from all over start mailing the Chicago cops saying they're gene. They would mail his fingerprints and threaten to kill people. The Chicago police received a letter from Portland, Oregon. Quote, chief polls, I see you are still after me. people. The Chicago police received a letter from Portland Oregon.
Starting point is 01:14:45 Quote, chief polls, I see you are still after me. Why don't you come out after me? Maybe I can give you some soup. Okay. What kind of soup? It's a lobster bisque. Oh Okay, I love the chunks. I Wish I had got the old bishop and judge in the soup, but maybe I will get him yet I will get some bishop here. I guess you look whoever rests me will blow up with me sign gene crores So the letters are dumb as shit. Yeah, but they're great. They are very like, I'm gonna tell you
Starting point is 01:15:29 up on Train Trek, Bill and Bill. Yeah, totally. How about I give you a suit? Like, Gene was like, I wasn't like a soup guy. Like, I'm like, I'm like a chemist, anarchist. Hey, how about I give you a little bit of my soup, boys? He's like, Adam West Batman Chef. The police chief in Fayetteville, North Carolina
Starting point is 01:15:51 received a letter, quote, dear chief of police. I have just arrived in your city and was met by one of your men. I'm going to make hell for your fresh bunch of police. I saw you, but said nothing. Well, so long at present, sign gene crones. But you know the cops are losing their mind. Oh, you can't. I mean, to some extent, you got to be like, is it maybe him? I mean, it could be. I don't know. Who's your state chronicles, quote, some cases, it even sounds like the police
Starting point is 01:16:26 might have used the poison super scare as an excuse to terrorize workers. What? If you could imagine, for St. Patrick's Day that year, the Catholics were so worried about being poisoned that the Irish Fellowship Club picked an official food taster for the banquet. Who's that guy?
Starting point is 01:16:50 Who, who, who, who, who, who the fuck got that job? Wait, what, what, what do you mean? Well, you'll taste everything that we're going to try. Who, why me? Because jeans are on the loose, and it could be bad for us. But why don't want to do it? What if someone's's gonna draw you? The fucking ill.
Starting point is 01:17:08 Well, there you are. But, pretty good. Well, it would be pretty good at first. Oh, fuck. You gotta draw you one spoon full of every dish. But I don't think I'm not hungry. You gotta be. You're getting paid fucking a dollar an hour. You still feel good? Sometimes it could take four to
Starting point is 01:17:31 five hours to hitch a fuck. Well the guests for that banquet were Archbishop George Mundeline and President Taft. Taft? Oh, test my own food. Ha-ha be president. I'll be trying the Poison dishes. At the end of summer in Pittsburgh, locals believe Crohn's had gone undercover. The U.S. a waiter. It's better, the U.P. quote, Gene Crohn's has turned up again this time disguised as a nun. What?
Starting point is 01:18:36 And then they show him as a picture of Johnny Dangerous. They just nod. Then they have a picture of him in the paper, not dressed up like a nun. Yeah, I'm like, we think he's a nut. Follow up. Do you know what a nut is? No. We are looking into that. But we believe he's dressed up like a mob gangster, aka a nut. So two Chicago detectives were asked to come by the Pittsburgh cops.
Starting point is 01:19:03 Quote, after the nut had been here for several weeks, going about freely and visiting the Turtle Creek Strike Zone, a downtown shop girl noticed that the nun always went alone, that she wore a garb different somewhat from the orthodox, and always carried a handbag. This shop girl then told police, she was certain the nun was Jean Crohn's. It's a pretty good lead.
Starting point is 01:19:33 I didn't believe her until I heard about the handbag. Nuts don't have those. So obviously they were, it went down there and they saw that, done and they were like, that's not a, that's not even a guy. Miss, this is unfortunate that we have to ask this. Did you poison a bunch of soup? No.
Starting point is 01:19:56 Get her boys. Stop resisting. A private, private investigator on a case in Luzon, New York was wearing fake hair and a fake mustache. He was arrested under suspicion of being Jean Crohn's. Your Jean. When he was- Your mustache came off, your Jean.
Starting point is 01:20:16 When he revealed his true identity, he was prosecuting for- he was prosecuted for masquerading. OK. It's crazy. It's my job. So it went on for a while. In November, a man calling himself Charles Lucius was arrested in Spalding, Nevada.
Starting point is 01:20:33 He looked exactly like Jean, was the same height and weight. So seven men came out from Chicago, including one of his old bosses and a steward. But the thumbprints didn't match, and he was missing a scar that Jean has, so they let Charlie go after three days. Jesus Christ. It's insane. Right, yeah.
Starting point is 01:20:55 Jean Croneside-ings and scares went on for years. And he seems to have been an inspiration in Chicago in the summer of 1818. Customers at Chicago restaurants and clubs and hotels started getting sick after eating. They were shaking and vomiting uncontrollably. One was even mayor Thompson. Oh God. Oh, Jesus Christ.
Starting point is 01:21:27 It's a fucking hat. Yeah, there's a lot going on there. I'm 75% hat. A dermatologist would be like, come in soon. The very fancy hotel Sherman hired an undercover detective to find out what was going on because this was very suspicious. We just have a shitty chef.
Starting point is 01:21:50 The detective discovered that food was being laced with a drug that made people ill and confiscated some envelopes of a powder. And the envelopes had a written warning on them. Quote, one of these powders may be given in beer tea, coffee, soup, or other liquid. Never give more than one powder a day. These powders are to be used by adults only. What? Was it a weird mail?
Starting point is 01:22:13 Yeah. So you realize Chicago waiters were putting it in the meals or drinks of customers, quote, mostly prominent Chicagoans who were not tipping well. And then it turned into Applebee's. That should bring that back. That should be allowed. That should be allowed. That should be allowed.
Starting point is 01:22:46 That really should be. If someone comes back a second time, you're like, give it to him. Ha, ha, ha. States attorney, McLean Hoin. So he sent cops to raid the waiters, union offices, and over 100 waiters were rounded up and arrested on suspicion
Starting point is 01:23:05 of food poisoning. You cannot. You can't. You can't. Amazing to like prosecute food, but like no I'm just bad. Most of them are quickly released except for the waiter's union president, two union officers and three waiters who arrested for conspiracy and assault. One of the waiters was W Stewart Wood,
Starting point is 01:23:26 who fancied himself a self-made pharmacist. And it turns out he had bought the drug in St. Louis and then re-packaged it to sell. It was called Tartur Emetik. Stagged Tartur. He sold over 20 cents a packet. It caused violent gas true issues. I am fucking shocked that this might come back to you.
Starting point is 01:23:51 Yeah. Yeah. So he was selling it to waiters at the Union office. I think Golden Corral just puts it in their food already, to be honest with you. Don't let, we're not here to talk shit about GC. You mean G-town? G-C-town. The EU President strongly denied the accusations.
Starting point is 01:24:14 Other unions came together to defend the Waders Union and said the raids were stunt by the state's attorney and said it was all about discrediting unions. Hotel and restaurant owners said it was not just individual waiters punishing poor tippers but a union plot against hotels for not meeting union demands. They called the grand jury, 49 witnesses testified, 10 indictments were handed out. The headlines read, quote, waiters drugged hotel patrons. And the story hit papers for months across the country. The story usually had a picture of a waiter putting something into food.
Starting point is 01:24:54 Sure. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, okay. And they just reported it was happening all over the country, even though it wasn't. But the charges against the 10 conspirators were dropped, and the union president was voted out the next year. He went on to claim he was Native American
Starting point is 01:25:16 and should get a share of oil land in Oklahoma and the tribe rejected it. What? Yeah. No, please. Jean Crohn's was never found. Ha ha ha ha. Ha ha ha. Ha ha ha.
Starting point is 01:25:31 Ha ha ha. Ha ha ha. So Nester Dundoglio for years was the face of violent, illiterate immigrants who wanted to destroy American institutions and kill. That was the guy that they always put of that fucking picture of the chef. And the name was used when it was needed
Starting point is 01:25:56 by the powers that be. Archbishop George Mundeline continued to be a strong supporter of immigration and he became a cardinal. He wasn't changed by the attempt, the attempt in assassination by an immigrant anarchist. He said, quote, I have come to Chicago to help and bless its people all I can and I think this is the best way to disarm prejudice. He did spend his career speaking out for the working poor and he died in 1939.
Starting point is 01:26:27 A biography of anarchist Sacco and Veseti claimed gene Crohn's moved to Connecticut and lived with a like-minded anarchist, a dying family, on a farm, and he stayed there in secret, sheltered and safe, but extremely poor, and he died in 1932. Holy shit. Yeah. Oh. Talk about a guy we need a franchise of. So, it says the Hoosier State Chronicles in,, the Dr. Leo Journal, Dominic, I don't know what the fuck that was, I probably should have
Starting point is 01:27:16 read the dead. That's just, he wrote a Chicago biography. He wrote, that's a really shitty name, but that's what he wrote. I'm sure he appreciates the shout out. Yeah. Chicago should be in the United Press and the Lincoln Star Nebraska. Thanks. What if you're revealed right now, you're Jean. At least that guy fell over.
Starting point is 01:27:52 All right, well thank you very much everybody. We appreciate it. Thanks for coming out. Thank you. you
