EPISODE 103 – Guerrillas in the Mist


Good day to you, listeners,

Today’s podcast comes to you in association with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Or rather, through a mulch of Krispy Kreme doughnuts; if only we had heeded our grandmothers’ insistence upon not talking with our mouths full. So we suppose Answer Me This! Episode 103 is a bit like dancing on granny’s grave, only without the danger of stubbing our toes on a headstone:

This classic episode is available to BUY NOW for just 79p, through iTunes or a secure PayPal server, without DRM restriction. CLICK HERE to find out more and support our podcast. (This helps keep our most recent episodes free)

On today’s conversational rota:

Status Quo vs. Status Quo
Fuck Buttons vs. mini-golf
Architects in Helsinki
America’s Best Dance Crew
King Charles II’s prophylactics
Take That’s long-running association with lube
Victorian hair jewellery
True Blood
sweetie cigarettes
the George Darte Funeral Home.

Plus: Olly tries to get by in Spanish; Helen’s childhood hobbies are some Benjamin Buttons shit; and Martin the Sound Man was, by the sound of it, abducted by aliens and forced to participate in some giant scat pool party. We also warn off the other Oliver Mann and the other Answer Me This.

Moreover! If you stick around till the end of the episode you will hear how Luke from Cambridge set us the challenge to find an apt collective noun for Answer Me This! listeners; if you have any good ideas for such (keep it clean, now!), please comment below; and as ever, do send us your QUESTIONS by sending an email to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com or leaving a voice message via Skype ID answermethis or the question line 0208 123 5877.

Au revoir,

Helen and Olly

    A Gaggle
    An Army
    An Ascension

    A sound man of AMT listeners?
    A tit of AMT listeners?

  8. Sharon Says:

    Of the suggestions so far I’m fond of ball, wanksplash and orgy. This possibly reflects badly on me.

  9. Michelle Says:

    I like swarm. Dangerous and annoying.

  11. The Smashcast Says:

    Apparently, ‘flange of baboons’ was made up by Richard Curtis when he was a writer for Not The Nine O’Clock News because he thought it sounded funny. The sketch, with Rowan Atkinson as “Gerald The Intelligent Gorilla”, became so ubiquitously quoted that, as a direct result, the term has now been accepted…

    Well, fancy that….


  12. Mark From Essex Says:

    A bamboozle.

  13. Ben Says:

    In descending order,

    A quirk, a strangeness, an oddness, a madness or an asylum of listeners.

    or a perverse one,

    a sobriety of listeners.

  14. Asat Says:

    Well it’s obvious, innit?

    A quiz of listeners. It already sounds plural and has a nice onomatopoeia about it. Plus it’s fun to say “christ, I got cornered in the market by a quiz and had to divert their attention with a half-finished sudoku!”

  15. Gordon the BritAmeriCanadian in Edinburgh Says:

    Like the man above said, definitely “a ball”. Potentially “a bloody ball” when things get particularly heated.

    Now answer my Tim question, right away!

  16. Tim Says:

    clearly, it has to be a ‘douche’ of listeners.

    one the one hand, the french means shower, which is what we are. a beautiful showering of podcast listeners.

    on the other self depricating hand, we are all kind of douchebags.

  17. Miles Says:

    At first I was thinking a download, or maybe a cast, or perhaps even a stream, but then the correct answer was obvious.

    A piss.

  18. Gareth from Glasgow Says:

    What about a feed of listeners, like a podcast feed? Eh?

    A cuntwad of listeners?
    or alternatively an anal herpe of listeners?

  27. George Says:

    How about a gabble of Answer Me This listeners?

    Gabble: To talk fast, idly, foolishly, or without meaning
