H2H: @nascarcasm and Steve Luvender get into heated Yanny vs. Laurel debate

As the internet battled Wednesday over whether a viral audio clip said ‘Laurel’ or ‘Yanny,’ our own Steve Luvender and @nascarcasm got into a heated debate over the clip on Slack, when they should have been doing something productive.

The transcript is as follows:

Steve Luvender: YANNY

NASCARCASM: LAUREL

Steve Luvender: YANNY

NASCARCASM: LAUREL

Steve Luvender: YANNY

NASCARCASM: DARRELL

Steve Luvender: DANNY

NASCARCASM: DALE

Steve Luvender: DENNY

NASCARCASM: DONNIE

Steve Luvender: DAVEY

NASCARCASM: DERRIKE

Steve Luvender: DIBENEDETTO

NASCARCASM: BUESCHER … AS IN CHRIS NOT JAMES, SORRY WANT TO CLEAR THAT UP

Steve Luvender: I MISS SEEING JAMES TEAR UP THE TRACK. IT’S BEEN A WHILE. I HOPE HE’S DOING WELL

NASCARCASM: GOSH ME TOO. ALSO, DARNELL

Steve Luvender: BELL

NASCARCASM: BILL (SEE: AWESOME FROM DAWSONVILLE)

Steve Luvender: DID YOU SAY DAWSONVILLE OR AUSTIN DILLON

NASCARCASM: I LOST TRACK STEVE … LET’S SAY DILLON

Steve Luvender: THAT’S OK. I FORGET WHAT WE WERE YELLING ABOUT ORIGINALLY. SOMETHING ABOUT A DRESS THAT’S BLUE AND BLACK

NASCARCASM: NAH IT WAS ABOUT HEARING TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THINGS — LIKE WHENEVER WE HAVE CONFERENCE CALLS WITH WARD BURTON. I’LL ASK YOU “DID HE SAY ‘SPATULA THE POLECAT UP THE BANANA PATCH’” AND YOU’LL BE LIKE “NO I THINK HE SAID ‘FLIM FLAM WHAM BAM ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE MOLAR.’”

Steve Luvender: OH, YEAH, LIKE THIS VIRAL VIDEO I SAW YESTERDAY. THEY SAID YOU’D EITHER HEAR “YANNY” OR “LAUREL” BUT I JUST SAID I HEARD “YANNY” TO SOUND COOL. I REALLY HEARD “DENNY”

NASCARCASM: YOU HEARD “DENNY?” I HEARD “DALE”

Steve Luvender: DENNY

NASCARCASM: PLAIN AS DAY … DALE

Steve Luvender: DENNY. HOW COULD YOU EVEN HEAR ANYTHING ELSE?

NASCARCASM: IF DALE HAS A DALE CALL I WONDER IF LAUREL HAS A LAUREL CALL. LIKE, YOU BLOW IT AND EITHER LAUREL OR YANNY SHOWS UP

Steve Luvender: LAUREL SHOWS UP VIA FEDEX, A COMPANY THAT SPONSORS WHICH DRIVER?

NASCARCASM: RAISE HELL AND PRAISE LAUREL

Steve Luvender:  CARL?

NASCARCASM: DARL … ington sorry that was weak

Steve Luvender: “YANNY LAUREL” SOUNDS LIKE A VENTRILOQUIST IN TRAINING TRYING TO SAY “DANIEL SUAREZ” WITHOUT MOVING THEIR LIPS

NASCARCASM: PAUL MENARD NEVER MOVES HIS LIPS BUT HE ALSO DOES NOT OWN A PUPPET SO I GUESS THAT MAKES HIM LIKE 50 PERCENT A VENTRILOQUIST. LIKE, HE’S GOT HALF OF IT DOWN.

Steve Luvender: HOW DO YOU KNOW PAUL MENARD DOESN’T OWN A PUPPET?

NASCARCASM: I MEAN I GUESS I’M UNFAIRLY GENERALIZING WHO KNOWS WHAT SKILLS HE MAY HAVE. HE MAY HEAR BOTH YANNY AND LAUREL. MAYBE HE CAN JUGGLE TOO.

Steve Luvender: YOU’RE PROBABLY RIGHT. A MAN WITH SUCH IMPRESSIVE FACIAL-HAIR-GROWING ABILITY SEEMS TO HAVE NO BOUNDS TO HIS TALENT. I’M GLAD WE CAN AGREE ON SOMETHING

NASCARCASM: DALE

Steve Luvender: DENNY. (oh crap I have a meeting be back soon)

NASCARCASM: YOU WIN
