I Married an Alien

Play

Johnson’s out of town this weekMorkMindy, so Scott Luberda steps in to talk about Chicago, sports teams with native American names, and his recent trip to the UK. Then, to mark the fact that we’re both married to the opposite transatlantic number, we list things that Americans and Brits will never understand about each other. Later, Jon calls in to take the quiz, and tries to imagine what “sloppy joe” might be, while Scott tries to figure out what “P.T.O.” stands for.

BumpaddleIn this, our 30th episode, Paul demands a retroactive point for his definition of “beavering” from several episodes ago. Then we discuss the celebration known as June teenth, and have another amazing Moment with Myrtle. Later, Cass & Andy (now collectively known as Ass Candy) take the quiz, and try to guess what a “seventh inning stretch” is, while Johnson attempts to define a “chipolata.”

KenBarbieGothicOn our flag day episode, we discuss Americans and their etiquette as seen through the eyes of a guide book for foreigners — everything from when it’s okay to spit, to the correct way to eat pizza. Later, our old pal Cocker returns to take the quiz, and tries to guess what “2%” might be. Johnson, meanwhile, wonders just what “her Majesty’s pleasure” could be caused by. Heaven help us all.

Edit: People have been asking about the blue tit/great tit milk thing. I’m not making it up. Video here.

EPSON scanner image…you’ll see London’s famous sunken cathedral. Okay, I made that up. But on our show this week is Amber, who doesn’t need to make things up, because she’s a real-live London tour guide from Texas. Yup, after James and Paul talk about Lummis Day and revisit the Brew-Thru, we talk to Amber about life for an American in London, from buying vegetables to catching a country and western show. And later, Caleb (that’s KAY-leb) takes the quiz and tries to guess what ‘Black Friday’ is, while Johnson ponders a ‘Rizla.’
