"Flower" "Foon's Greatest Swordsman"
List of episodes

"The FML" is the fourth episode of season one of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on March 30, 2015. This episode features the first appearance of Rush Howell as the Chairman of the Foon Mittens League, Larry Birdman.


This week I meet Larry Birdman, who is something of a celebrity in Foon. He is the commissioner of the Foon Mittens League, whatever that is. I hope he’s nicer than Flower.


At Arnie's urging Usidore attempts to introduce himself without his full recitation of titles, but cannot. Arnie reads his first listener e-mail where Chunt is asked if his changeling powers are triggered by masturbation. (They aren't.)

The rest of the episode is spent learning about Mittens, the most popular sport in Foon and meeting Larry Birdman who is the chairman of the Foon Mittens League (or FML).

Larry explains rules of the game and the Mittens Calvacade (parts one and two) that end the season each year. He makes clear he disagrees with many of those rules. We also learn that Larry himself was one of the best Mittens players in Foon history.

Arnie goes to an ad break, and we hear audio of the Drive-Thru of the Burger King, which is itself picking up some audio from Foon as Usidore whispers in the Wizard State.
