EPISODE 137 – the official gay men who fancy Olly Mann club


“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
“Of randy stroppy teenagers;
“Ant queens; the term ‘left wing’…”

Believe that Walrus, because there’s all that and yet more talk of many things in Answer Me This! Episode 137:

Plus: Olly is a man with a tiny car and a less tiny waist; Helen should have gnawed off her bad leg rather than sit through the Scooby Doo movie; and Martin the Sound Man comes up with a plan to oust the National Lottery’s Voice of the Balls, probably because he must be jealous that there is someone whose job title is ‘the Voice of the Balls’.

    Regarding Richard from Birmingham’s email .. Meghan Fox’s tattoo (next episode) does mean strength in Japanese and Chinese. 力

    蚊 means mosquito, but it is pronounced ‘ka’
    可 means passable, again with the sound ‘ka’

    ka is written か which looks similar to 力… but か only really means the question particle and the sound ‘ka’ – not the other stuff… there isn’t much debate about the meaning, because the meaning is entirely in the character, not the sound. Especially as it is written.

    It is like looking at a tattoo of “My Newt” on someone’s leg, and thinking that that meant “minute”. If you get my meaning.

    Looking at a tattoo saying 蚊 wouldn’t make people think of 可, that said looking at a tattoo of か (or even 力) will make you think ‘dipshit’.

    Also, by having a tattoo, you might get refused access to lovely Japanese hot springs. I think it is their way of discriminating against gangsters. So that would be worth mentioning.

    I just took the autism test and I got 10, meaning I am officially not autistic.
    Incidentally, my friend Rob has a tattoo on his arm of a scroll bearing the legend ‘Cogito ergo sum’.

  3. Mike from Bath Says:

    I thought I remembered, many years ago, seeing a suggestion of real vampires in an episode of Scooby Doo. Before I get the [citation needed] tags slapped on me, have a look at the first episode summary here:

    I don’t think that’s actually the episode I’m thinking of, and it’s not about real GHOSTS as specified in the question, but it’s a step in the right direction!

  4. Alice Hawash Says:

    Years ago in London I saw a late-middle aged woman, of Oriental extraction and clearly a tourist, walking down Oxford street wearing a belt with a huge buckle that said in English “Bullshit”. Luckily not a tattoo though.

  5. Peter Says:

    Haiku’s are easy
    But sometimes they don’t make sense

    In other self-referential poetry humour news…

    There was a young man from Japan
    Whose limericks never did scan
    When asked why this was
    He said “It’s because
    I always get carried away trying to put as many words into the last time as I possibly can”

  6. Chris Says:

    I have my wife’s face tattooed on my chest, although when people ask I tell them it’s an ex-girlfriend or a women I saw in a magazine.

    Never gets a laugh.

    Incidently my mate’s older brother was the first person to win knightmare.

  7. Ryan Says:

    Brilliant! Haven’t listened to the whole thing yet though, Chris Moyles has priority, sorry 🙂
