Did I Mention I’m Sick?

Play

$(KGrHqZ,!hgE7k4SFmbTBPFwMKvQHw~~60_35A shorter than usual show this week, because I was, well, not well. But it’s still a good one: we talk about the Scottish referendum result, and get letters from listeners Amy and LaToya. Amy talks about how the “ABC song” doesn’t work when sung the British way (and it’s hard to argue.) LaToya chats about London, flags, and haggis. Then I go and lie down, because, did I mention I’m sick?

Oh, here’s Toyah Willcox, even worse than I remember.

Whatever, Scotland

We talk about how sad it’ll be, and how it’ll ruin the lovely British flag. Then we dip into the Ed Files to discuss some U.S. products banned in other countries (everything from lipstick to hairstyles) and then some foreign products banned in the U.S. (including haggis. That’s right, Scotland, nobody wants your bloody haggis. Good luck running an economy on haggis! Okay, I’m done.)

The Delicious Bald Eagle

BaldEagleThis week, the listeners single-handedly prop up the show. First, Chris Morris sends us some observations and a poem. Then, Beth Kent gives some suggestions for Johnson’s upcoming trip to London, and a list of things some foreigners have observed about America, its citizens, and of course our majestic and tasty national bird.
