    Hilarious episode – many, many genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Cheers!

    Howdy ho, Answer Me This folk!
    Now, you may have gotten some quibbles about this from other people, and I have no idea why I’ve suddenly decided to champion the cause of standard American pronunciation, but I feel I must set you straight.
    Having spent my entire life in the Southern and decidedly redneck-y US state of North Carolina, I’ve had a cursory exposure to the world of pro wrestling, and vaguely recall hearing Vince McMahon’s name in childhood. Anywho, I have to admit I giggled after I realized that “Vince McMah hun” was the same man. Stateside, we pronounce it “McMan.” The same is true for former Tonight Show sidekick Ed McMahon. Oh, silly Brits.

    Hello AnswerMeThis people

    You were talking about 3D specs for the Up movie (which i loved) and then I think (altho my ears might be deceiving me coz I’ve got a really horrid cold) you were talking about 4D films, so I just thought I’d let you know that in Universal Studios in LA there is a 4D Shrek movie. I won’t ruin the surprise in case you or any of your listeners ever go, but what I will say is that certain parts of it scared the living shit out of me, and I didn’t like it AT ALL!

    Anyway, hope you’ve all had a good weekend, and that you have a good week ahead of you
