This week, despite a crippling hangover, Johnson bravely pulls some christmas crackers, so we naturally tell bad jokes, wear paper crowns, and discuss the noises made by animals in foreign countries. Hope you all had a terrific holiday, and have a safe New Year’s. Thanks for listening this year, and we’ll talk to you all in 2015!
A packed episode! First we talk about rain, vol-au-vents, and what color liquorice should be. Then we read some listener mail about Where’s Waldo (and various other people), and the ongoing feud between the show’s Arsenal and Man Utd supporters. Later, Sam takes the quiz and tries to figure out what a “Sooner” is, while Johnson fancies a “dolly mixture.”
Johnson’s back, and after discussing whether or not Yosemite and Yellowstone exist outside of cartoons, we chat about Thanksgiving football and the correct way to say “Detroit.” Then Johnson complains about KPCC stealing our ideas again with a bit called “Americanisms creeping into the UK” and finally we learn some American phrases Brits don’t understand, which somehow devolves into a rant about Greek terms in the American education system. Then we add some lens flare.
