Cheez Doodles Guy, Ringo Silver, and Dad Jokes (Pizzamas Day 4)

Good Morning Hank it’s Thursday It’s the Fourth day of Pizza-mas and I have just one thing to say. “YYAAAAAaaaAAA!” “YYAAAAAAAA!” “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!” “YAAAAAAAAA!” Thank you for including this in your video, Hank, because I actually think about this man a lot. I call him Cheez Doodles Guy, and my current number one goal in life, is to someday be as excited about something as Cheez Doodles guy is about Cheez Doodles. But it’s a weird facet of human brains that some things cause that joyful excitement, and others don’t. Like today, the World Health Organization announced that maternal death over the last 25 years has fallen 44% worldwide. This is amazing news, arguably even better news than discovering Cheez Doodles in Antarctica. And yet while I am encouraged by this news, I am not Cheez Doodles Guy excited about it, which is so weird. Humans are so weird. But anyway, Hank, this video isn’t about Cheez Doodles. It’s Thursday! It’s Question Thursday, the day that I answer real questions from real NerdFighters. Let’s get right to it. Why did you shave your beard? I just started to like it! Mostly for the mustache joke, but also it was kinda itchy. Who is your least favorite Beatle, and what is your least favorite color? Ringo Silver. That’s a funny name. I feel like Ringo Silver would have a mustache, and maybe a curious hat, and a pet monkey and together they would solve crimes. Hey, how many Pizza John shirts can you wear at the same time? Oh, I can wear all of them and fairly comfortably as it turns out. Nonetheless, I think I’m gonna stick with just the one for now. Do you know anymore dad jokes? I feel like dad jokes aren’t something you know so much as they’re something you are. Like every time I’m putting away the dishes, I always say, “Tupperware, tupperware, tupper-here!” And then I go to the tupperware drawer, And then Sarah looks at me with just… absolute disgust. Pizza, or- Pizza! It’s always pizza! How do you feel about vegetables? They’re great on pizza! What should I get my boyfriend for Christmas? Might I recommend Pizza John shoelaces, the perfect gift for someone who has everything, except for a way to keep their shoes on, available only during Pizzamas, at What’s your opinion on licorice? Strongly in favor! How do you become well-read? I don’t know. I mostly read books that are recommended to me by people that I trust, but I will give you a book recommendation. This amazing, weird, sci-fi book, Midnight Robber, I love it. Would you consider getting a real tattoo, now that you’ve gotten a fake one? Well, I don’t think my tattoo is fake. It was just made with water instead of ink. So it’s not technically visible, but it’s still real. I would consider getting more invisible tattoos. What do you think about ducks? Well I spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about what happens to them when the pond freezes over in winter, I’ll tell you that. How do you become okay with being truly alone? Okay, so I would argue that you’re both never and always truly alone. Like you’re always truly alone in the sense that no one can ever fully comprehend your experience, or live inside your consciousness. But you’re also never truly alone, because just like by virtue of living or having left that comment, you’re part of this massive, interconnected web of life on earth. And that web is grateful to have you here And when I can remember that, it helps give me the energy to connect more meaningfully with other people, whether it’s online or in real life. And in turn that makes me more aware of this big web that I’m part of, which makes me feel less alone. What is the opposite of guacamole? Elomacaug. In 50 years, what country do you think will be the world’s biggest superpower? In general, I think that nation-states will be slightly less important than they are now, but I’m gonna say, India. What’s your favorite research chemical? What am I? Walter White? What should I get my girlfriend for our three-year anniversary? Let me answer your question with a question. Does your girlfriend enjoy drinking liquids? Because if so, she might enjoy this Pizza John travel mug, available for preorder only during Pizzamas at How do I deal with the death of my cactus? Well, things will get easier with time, but I think for a while at least, you’re gonna feel a little prickly. I’m sorry, I hate myself. Do you still have any leftover Halloween candy? If you mean, does your two-year-old daughter still have some leftover Halloween candy, and you eat it occasionally because she’s two, and won’t notice, then yes. Hank, happy Pizzamas! Yaaaaaah! Nah. You know, I’m excited about Pizzamas, I’m just not that excited. I’ll see you tomorrow.

  1. John thinks India can be a superpower in 50 years. That makes me feel oddly patriotic even though I'm not very convinced that being a superpower nation is such a positive outcome for any nation.

  2. Were you not cheese doodle excited about Alice and Henry? Like maybe you didn't scream when they popped out of the womb but I figure that's more because screaming in hospitals is reserved for the person in labor.

  3. I was cheese doodle guy excited about Pizzamis I yelled happy Pizzamas at all my friends extremely loudly during our lunch break at school on the first day

  4. I was really upset the other day because my cactus died, and I'll admit the joke made me laugh.
    RIP my little cactus friend

  5. oh oh oh, that was holden caulfield. the ducks question – the answer was from catcher in the rye. *i got excited about that*

  6. Ringo Silver definitely reminds me of Duke Silver.
    also, a 10 year old at my ballet studio told me, "my dad says that!" after I made what happened to be a Dad joke…

  7. As a Catholic Nerdfighter, I feel uncomfortable about the concept of Pizzamass. It seems to me as a way of tirivalize and even mock one of the most important beliefs of my religion (the incarnation of God) and it's traditions.

  8. I was like superpower? I hope it's teleportation! And then I realized you were talking about most powerful nation/empire.

  9. Got too excited while thinking about the salamander guy from Ringo as Ringo (the Beatle) but painted silver. I haven't even seen that movie. What's wrong with me.

  10. the maternal death news is good news, hearing it gave me relief more than excitement. i think it would be hard to be cheeze doodle level excited about something that isn't happening to you personally in that moment.

  11. John. Thank you. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Embrace the dad jokes so I can live vicariously through you seeing as I cannot, and never will be, a dad.

  12. Thank you, John Green for answering my boyfriend's question, because I do in fact enjoy drinking liquids and on our 3 year anniversary I became the happy owner of a Pizza John travel mug!

  13. "What do you think about ducks?"
    Oh, I know which fandom asked that.
    Those bloodthirsty little beasts.
    Never trust a duck.

  14. Question for John Green; Is there a point to making all the love relationships in your books wonderful sounding and completely enviable? Because I am a nerd (100%) and the guy I like is a nerd (110%) and he is what you call and oblivious male. Thoughts?

  15. "well, I spent an inordiante amount of time thinking about what happens to them when the bond freezes over in winter," Was that a Catcher in the Rye reference? If so, I think I love John ever more right now, if that is even possible

  16. It's currently 3:03 am and I can not fall asleep. The only social medias I have are YouTube, Spotify, and Pinterest. I started reading Looking for Alaska and I'm excited for it. So here I am, watching the Vlogbrothers, as a slightly tired, yet, fully awake Nerdfighter who desperately wants to sleep.

  17. apparently Google is not nerdfighter… and I feel dumb for asking, but when did the Yeti have another baby?

  18. fast forward 5 years. She has seen this video. she has seen all the videos. She counts her candy individually from age 7 until sheis to old to trick or treat. You continue to eat her candy anyway.

  19. When John said India, I fangirled weirdly, but boy did that make me happy. Thanks John, I hope that what you think does happen!

  20. Hello John, good evening. Could you possibly make a video about why you think India will be the next global superpower? As an Indian resident myself, it took me by surprise. A lot of us are surprised whenever anybody says that. It'll be nice to hear your objective opinion. Thanks, and don't forget to be awesome!

  21. I've recently been rewatching a lot of your guys' old videos, and I have yet to be as excited about something as Cheese Doodles Guy is about Cheese Doodles.

  22. Lets be honest, we are all more gratfull for for some thqt for others. And while I was making this comment you made the prickly joke and I almost died LingMAO.

  23. how did I misunderstand like 2 of the questions?
    I honestly didn't even think of the Band and was quite confused what kind of Beatle a Ringo is… (for a second there at least)
    also I thought about Superheros powers and not countries …
