Troy & Mark School Us About Maine’s Incredible Giant Globe
Our favorite dubbahs, Troy and Mark are back without fail this week with a new episode of their video series, 'Welcome to Maine'.
2020 is the year of our state's Bicentennial. To celebrate 200 years being the greatest, we think it's an awful good idea to brush up on some tales of the magnificent people, places and things that make Maine the best.
This week the boys continue their trek across Vacationland to show us the biggest globe in whole wide world. It's named Eartha, which is a perfect Maine name when ya think about it. You can really give it the Yankee accent without even trying. Ayuh. Eartha, bub.
Eartha is prominently displayed at the Delorme headquarters in Yarmouth. My wife and I always oooh and ahhh over the magnificent orb every time we ride by on I-95. The best part is we get to see it twice...once on the way up the highway and again on the way back.
Troy once drops his reliable knowledge along with riotous wicked Mainah observations that we can all relate too. There's also no lack of plenty of affirming 'yuhts' from Mark.
You know what rhymes with 'yuhts'...right?
We can always count on Mark to fall for Troy getting him with a good nut tap to wrap up the video too.
"Watch ya globes."
Since the series debuted in August, Troy and Mark have hilariously reported from Portland Head Light, The Desert of Maine, The Moxie Store in Lisbon Falls, B & M Baked Beans in Portland, the Paul Bunyan statue in Bangor, Stephen King's house, the Cryptozoology Museum and more.
Portland comics, Ian Stuart/"Mark" and James Theberge/"Troy" have performed together around the state in The Maine Comedy All Stars shows.
Future destinations that 'Troy' and 'Mark' plan on visiting include, The Lobster Pound, LL Bean and more of the great places that call Maine home. If you have any ideas of where else they should go, hit 'em up on the 'Welcome To Maine' Facebook page.
Ian and James can be found performing live stand up comedy for social distanced audiences at Stroudwater Distillery on Thompson's Point in Portland. The socially distanced shows are on Thursdays at 7pm and ya gotta make a reservation.
