EPISODE 113 – cheese on ice


Hello listeners,

Don your special silly-specs, because now, in INCREDIBLE 3D and GLORIOUS TECHNICOLOUR, it’s Answer Me This! Episode 113:

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)
Oh alright, it doesn’t look any different to our other episodes, but it definitely sounds different, for unlike all those other weeks, this week we’re talking about:

Veronica Mars
Sylvia Plath
musical chairs
Almost Famous
Priscilla Presley
Shakespeare’s Globe
Sharon Osbourne vs. Robert Mugabe
Time Out vs. the rest of the world
a ‘Janet Jackson-style mic’
Granny’s Garden
Rebecca Ritters.

Plus: Olly takes a trip down Memory Lane to the days of Lycos and Geocities; Helen proves to be not very ladylike in the bedroom; and Martin the Sound Man uses an expression that should probably get him put on some sort of register. We also reveal just how rock’n’roll we really are. Although I think you know already. More Horlicks than Hendrix, alas.

Now, like squirrels gathering a large supply of hazelnuts to get through the winter, we want to stuff a tree-trunk full of your QUESTIONS to see us right through to spring. So please email them to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com or leave a voicemail on Skype ID answermethis or the question line 0208 123 5877.

And do chip in with your suggestions as to the best party games: leave a comment below, and in due course this blog post will become Party Central. Minus the Twiglets.

See you next week!

Helen and Olly

PS: A madly-skilled young lady disproves Olly’s statement that you can’t play a pop song on a ukulele without sounding like you’re taking the piss:

    Thankyou for answering my question, Helen and Olly!
    It was the one about computers when you were younger
    I am now a teenager and do definetly know what a cassette tapes is
    And can rember when there were no CDS DVDS and laptops were rubbbish!

    Love Molly xxxxxxx

    Thanks for answering my question! funnily enough, we kept asking for more stuff on our rider and by the last week of the tour we had not only beers and water but a bottle of Maker’s Mark, fruit, crisps, bread and cheese!

  4. James from Portishead Says:

    I nearly drove my car into a hedge when you answered my question today. Thank you anyway though, I’ve had a silly grin on my face all day.

    The party was very good by the way. We did this game called Peter Smartie (!?) which involves one child leaving the room and the others naming a Smartie on a plate full of them ‘Peter’. The returning child then gets a minute to eat as many as possible by picking them up with a straw until they select Peter, at which point everyone shouts ‘Peter Smartie!’. Hyper-ventilating and E numbers – a winning combination if ever there was one. In case anyone else is thinking of organising a party for lots of children, a variant on sleeping lions (where you lie still and try not to move…) is to put a sweet – perhaps another Smartie? – on their foreheads. If it falls off you lose. The competitiveness was much improved we felt, as was the length of silence in the room. Will try that popcorn game next year though…..

    My favourite party game is the Mars bar game. Everyone sits in a circle with several Mars bars (still wrapped), a plate or chopping board, knife, a hat, a pair of gloves or mittens and possible another item of clothing in the middle of the circle. Everyone takes it in turns to roll a dice and when anyone rolls a six the have to put on all of the items of clothing before they can unwrap the mars bar and cut up it up into small chunks and eat it. As soon as anyone else rolls a six, they must immediately stop either chopping, eating or dressing and take off the hat, gloves etc. so the other person can dress up. I’m sure i’m making this sound far more complicated than it actually is, but it is a fantastic game! 🙂

  6. Ashley from London Says:

    Definitely NOT “Pin The Tail On The Donkey”, I was always the person who got a pin in the face. In fact my favourite was probably either “pass the parcel” or “Musical Chairs”. Who doesn’t like competing for chairs, interrupted by some frantic dancing?

  7. Rebecca from Adelaide Says:

    My favourite game, which still got dragged out at my 18th, was to split people into teams of 3 or 2 and have one team member wearing a shower cap covered in shaving cream and then to have their team members throw as much popcorn as possible onto the shaving cream helmet from about 3 metres away. The team with the most popcorn stuck to their team mates wins. I’m not entirely to sure why my mother allowed me to do this as a child considering the mess, but it was oh so much fun 🙂

  8. Sara Says:

    Dave from my hometown! That just made me excited.
    I don’t really think that Harpsichords are really comparable to ukuleles. When was that last time you heard a ukulele used to accompany recitative in a Mozart Opera. But it is true that a harpsichord sound ridiculous out of context. For an excellent example search Mr Darcy Freestyle Disco on youtube.
