Easter for the Christians, passover for the Jews, chocolate for everyone! We talk about all three of those things, plus Stephen Fry’s spider bite and why it’s only hooman to say Jagwar. Yeah. Later, Jordan takes the quiz, getting agita from schlepping a po’ boy to the bayou, while Johnson gets chivvied into getting a slapper up the duff. Is it Thursday already?
It’s Palm Sunday later this week, so we talk about that until it stops being interesting (90 seconds or so.) James then segues into talking about palm trees, despite Paul thinking that this is also too dull a subject to merit attention. So we talk instead about the various poisonous creatures inhabiting these United States, and whether Wikipedia or the Brady Bunch is the more reliable source of information. Later, Rhiannon calls in to take the quiz and tries to figure out what a “Hoosier” is, while Paul contemplates “fly-tipping.”
St. Patrick’s Day is here, but in the interest of fairness, we talk about all four patron saints of the UK. We also discuss our Irish voiceover guy, and James does an impression of his French teacher who was, well, Irish. Listener Todd writes in with a question, and later, Cocker takes a kid-themed “That’s Not English” quiz; he tries to guess what a “noogie” is, while Johnson ponders something called “Knock Down Ginger.”
Our quinceañera episode! We talk about daylight savings, then listener Jill gets in touch to tell us about some British and jewish folklore involving people acting stupid. This allows us to revisit Polish jokes, James tells a story about treating scary East German guards like postmen, and Johnson tells of his own experiences as a member of a totalitarian regime. Then Soji takes the “That’s Not English” quiz, trying to figure out what the best part of waking up is, while Johnson gets the Abbey habit (not Downton this time.)
