Master Shake and Meatwad are nominated for a Dudie reward, a reward given to the coolest person on Earth. Frylock is inducted as the judge and he begins to manipulate Shake into doing chores and being nice under the premise that having responsibilities and being kind is cool. Not believing these actions to be cool, Shake eventually goes to Carl, who teaches him that acting and dressing like a jerk and a rebel is the path to coolness.
When Shake arrives home later on, Frylock informs Shake and Meatwad that he is actually not the judge for the Dudie awards, and that the Dudies are all just a big scam to sell them condos in Nevada. Shake does not believe him and attends the awards anyways, where he is pitted against Carl. Despite Carl supposedly knowing that the awards are a scam, he and Shake attend an open house in Nevada anyways, thinking that that is where they are going to receive their Dudie awards. They are instead forced into a bomb shelter because the area is a testing ground for nuclear warheads, and they come face-to-face with a Fang Worm, a mutation that occurred due to the radiation from the nuclear warheads.
