This month: Nick Offerman meets up with his dad on father’s day so they can not talk together, Bentley makes a point about attention to detail with a massive picture, and we learn something about gut bacteria from a Finnish dairy company and a guy who just won’t stop licking things.

Nick Offerman Spends Father’s Day Not Talking to His Dad
