The Art Of Blending In


how_not_to_be_seenThis week, Jamie Foxxx(xx?) gets us into the wacky world of stage names, where we learn the difference between Marion Morrison and Maurice Micklewhite. Then we discuss the Hokey Cokey (or Pokey), and get a letter from Mack and Alistair in Canada. Then we dip into the Ed Files to learn some tips on doing an authentic southern accent, and swap stories of how we tried to blend in.

Some links to things mentioned: the Hokey Cokey video is here, and the Ed Files video is here.

Our Friends to the North


Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas as Bob and Doug McKenzieThis week, Johnson makes an observation on the British version of the magical negro, after which we discover how much (or little) Americans know about Canada. Then, Johnson fields some searching questions about American life, and later we try and guess the meaning of some Australian slang words.

Some links to things we mention: the Not The Nine o’Clock News shoe heist sketch, and some Paul Hogan Foster’s Lager commercials, here, here and here.
