Extracting The Michael


MikeThis week, my plan to entrap Johnson with the word “Aunt” backfires. Then we argue about whether Canadians ever say the name of their country wrong, and Beth Kent sends us a letter about the word “the,” which we get to via some 80’s bands. Then we painstakingly dissect the phrase “taking the piss,” which somehow leads us up a canal to Yorkshire textile mills. Oh: link to Beth’s article is here.
