For this week's 2&2 we speak with

Jaret: We got it off a Steve Martin
comedy album from 1978….It was supposed to be temporary, but we never got
around to changing it…
2&2: Aside from being the name of
our album, what is "The Great Burrito Extortion Case"?

Want" was nominated for a Grammy Award he then called Jaret who was waiting

Jaret: That is actually a true story…It
was an amazing day!!!
