EPISODE 193…not.


…actually, not ‘not’. See what a pain in the arse that joke is? Leave it in the 90s, people! This is our plea in Answer Me This! Episode 193:

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

Today we ponder upon:

Indian cows
Utterly Butterly
beluga whales vs. beluga caviar
holy salt
claiming sanctuary
charity shop returns policies
cloud computing
contact lenses
Teri Hatcher in Swedish
shoe mnemonics
breastfeeding men
the irony of Google Chrome.

Plus: Olly is jealous of you people who’ve had milkmen (oo-er, missus!); Helen will be hiding in plain sight when she goes on the lam; and Martin the Sound Man is happy to be the theme of your stag/hen parties. L-plates and fake veils do look great against a tweed jacket and facial hair.

This week’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App (available for iPhones, iPads and Android devices) is about the books that wind up in charity shops before they are even dog-eared. Not this book, though! Perish the thought.

Do NOT, however, perish thoughts of sending us your QUESTIONS. Pose them to us as voicemails on the Question Line (dial 0208 123 5877 or fire up the Skype and look for answermethis) or emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. In the Age of Austerity, it’s one thing you needn’t stint upon.

See you next Thursday,

Helen & Olly

    Male lactation:
    For my dissertation I read ‘Why is Sex Fun?’ by the famous evolutionary psychologist Jared Diamond. He dedicates a whole chapter to male lactation. Turns out ALL men can lactate. I quote “..manual stimulation of the nipples causes a prolactin surge in men as well as in nonlactating women. Lactation is a not infrequent result of nipple self-stimulation in teenage boys.”
    Apparently breast development and lactation are also a common occurrence for men who are recovering from starvation. Thousands of prisoners of war in the concentration camps of WW2 developed breast tissue and/or lactated. Apparently it’s related to inhibition of glands and liver activity and the speed at which they recover.
    And in the Old Testament Job (chapter 21, verse 24) remarked of a well-fed man that ‘His breasts are full of milk’.

    So there you go, turns out everyone can lactate if they really wanted to.

    RE: Ikea books.
    I think they’re all in Swedish so that people don’t steal them. Also, I think that’s why all the books are as crap as the Teri Hatcher autobiography. No-one wants to steal shit Swedish books (unless there’s an international ebay target audience for shit Swedish books?)

  3. Finlay Says:

    Men can lactate and do have the requisite glands, but it’s very rare obviously. I think the general requirements is to be obese and have female hormones coursing through your body – because a lot of female hormones now get pissed out and end up in our water supply, because of things like the pill or something evidently some men end up with lactating breasts…

    For the contact lens problem, perhaps get the day/night contact lenses for the big nights out. They can be slept in without irritation. Or get laser eye surgery.
