EPISODE 218 – shipshape and Bristol fashion


Hi listeners,

There are a lot of really weird stories in the news at the moment – cannibals, dismembered bodies, Octomom doing a porno – but fortunately this week, AMT218 is a largely horror-free zone:

This week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices or Android) involves Claudia from Melbourne asking whether you can text the police rather than calling them. With all the cuts to public services, unfortunately the police have had to lay off their full-time team of interpreters waiting to figure out what you mean by HLP pls sum1 tryn2 mrdr me non-LOL srsly >:-O

If you still have proper command over vowels, send us a QUESTION for next week: deliver emails to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com and/or leave voicemails on the Question Line (dial 0208 123 5877 or Skype answermethis).

    I’m with Gaijintendo – turtle. They have legs for chrissakes!

    So, I got married in Vegas. 🙂 We’d been going out for about 6 years, and got engaged in 1999, to be married the next year. We started making arrangements in the second half of 1999. at which point we were told “You want to get married in the millennium? get lost – you should have booked years ago!” We then realized that we enjoy going to Vegas very much, and decided to simply get hitched there, since scheduling was not a problem. We chose the hotel chapel at Tresure Island (back in the day before it was “TI” and had “sirens” outside”), brought 10 family members, and got hitched. We ate dinner in their fancypants restaurant, and gave everyone an eyepatch, a drink, and a good time. About 3 weeks later, we had a reception back at home for friends and family.

    That was 12 long years ago, and was the second or third best decision I’ve ever made.

    By the way, as part of the service, the hotel provided a limo to take us to the courthouse for the license. It was hilarious.

    Snail? Turtle surely? Everything follows, except you do get giant turtles. They are not that scary really.
