EPISODE 204 – lie back and think of England

by

Happy 200th birthday, Charles Dickens! We hope you had a super party at the Retirement Home for Victorian Novelists. William Thackeray ordered in the cupcakes, Anthony Trollope bought a keg, and Henry James cooked up a batch of his Special Brownies. We’ll just leave Answer Me This! Episode 204 on the gift table:

Today we mention:

noodle birdsnests vs. tortilla salad bowls
Harold Raymond
accidental sexting
L!VE TV’s weather reports
real fake ID
Nicki Chapman
quiche who?
the perilous life aboard the This Morning floating map
foot fortune-telling (footune-telling?)
book tokens
Lady Hillingdon
and
Gloria Hunniford.

Plus: Olly narrowly escapes Death by Chicken Kiev; Helen had peculiar taste in men for a 13-year-old; and Martin the Sound Man compares feminine sexual moisture to Cadbury’s Creme Eggs. Women don’t have YOLKS, Martin!

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices or Android), Olly explains that as a teenager, he didn’t get a fake ID: he invented a whole fake identity. Will the real Olly Mann please stand up? OK, sit down, you look exactly like the fake one.

As every week, we want your QUESTIONS: deliver them as voicemails to the Question Line (dial 0208 123 5877 or Skype answermethis) or as emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com.

See you next Thursday,

Helen & Olly

PS: for all of you who, like our final questioneer of the day, have ever mis-sent a text or email:

    Hah! I was in the audience for Countdown once when the board spelled wanker. I can’t confirm if they broadcast it, but for a minute a wave of hearty giggles spread through the whole studio, including an audience made up almost entirely of geriatric ladies. One of my fondest memories.

    As a bookseller in Waterstones I can confirm that indeed you can buy anything in the store with a book token. No doubt this is much to the consternation of the inventor. Luckily for us he is dead nd can’t spoil anyone’s fun. Hooray.
