Former Segments Edit

Reading Rap Lyrics with a Confused Expression Edit

A segment in which Oxhorn quite simply reads rap lyrics with a confused expression. It was regarded by Oxhorn's brother, Brian, to be embarassing. The segment was replaced a result.[2]

Hearthstone Edit

Oxhorn vs. Andy

A segment in which Oxhorn plays against his fans in a game of Hearthstone. Fans are able to challenge Oxhorn on a first-come first-serve basis, the first one to get through Hearthstone's broken challenge system gets to meet the classy host on the field of battle, competing for glory, honour, and bacon.

Oxhorn has revealed that Hearthstone is one of the few games he has the chance to regularly play, he also plays with his fans each week during the later half of the show, with rare exceptions since he began playing in the beta.

When challenged by fans, Hearthstone has a glitch that causes Oxhorn's matches to be cancelled or even crash the game. Oxhorn often expresses frustration at Hearthstone not resolving the issue after such a long time.

A running joke about the segment is that Oxhorn often meets his end to incredibly powerful cards like King Krush, Mal'Ganis, or Dr. Boom. He himself has over time acquired a few powerful legendaries of his own such as Ysera and Kel'thuzad
