Will Smith (R) smacks Chris Rock onstage during the 94th Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, on March 27, 2022.

Note: This episode contains strong language.

You may have seen that Sunday night, on the Academy Awards stage, Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith went up on stage and whacked Rock in the face, and then a few minutes later, Will Smith won the Best Actor award.

A more Noseish confluence of events we may never have seen before. And so we assembled an emergency, podcast-only, shortish Nose to deal with it.
