Episode Guide
Previous Episode: #225: ShamWow
Next Episode: #227: Mondo Drinks



  • Jon bought the iron a long time ago. They just didn't use it until season 8, because they had better stuff to microwave and season 8 is reserved for the "leftover bullsh*t." When Jon went to buy the blender and a season 5 girl (probably Tracy), he was offered the iron for $4, so he bought that, too.
  • When introducing the iron in the donations video, Riley hilariously said, "Harry!" in the same intonation Marv did from Home Alone.
  • Just like with the smoke bombs episode, there were so many bloopers in this episode that Jon made a separate video for the bloopers/outtakes.
  • Margaret II doesn't have a minute-plus button.
  • Jon submitted the show to Dirty Jobs in a video response; the Mighty Putty episode was the one submitted.
  • Jory says to Margaret II nothing would ever hurt her. However: later in her career she was hurt either, and not just once or a litle bit. She got a partly molten door and siding, a broken plate and even a few deaths!
  • This is the fourth kitchen appliance microwaved.


  • Jory: We have this iron. Who was it donated by?

Riley: That new guy. Jonny Pool-a?

Jory: Jonny Pool-a? Oh, he's the camera guy!

Jon: Hey-yo!

  • Jory: (singing to Margaret II) Here she goes, Miss America!
  • Jon: I wonder how long we should put it in there for, guys?

Riley: 1:06?

Jory: No! No, this needs to be at least, like, a 3:05.

Riley: We have degrees of time now?! This is definitely a 3:05-er!

  • Jory: (to Jon) Are you getting at the fact that it's iron-ic?
  • Jory: (in pet voice) It's okay, Margaret II! Nothing will ever hurt you!


from bloopers video:

  • Riley: Would [Mike Rowe] be MY sidekick?

Jon: No, you would be his bitch!
