EPISODE 253 – giving people wood


horror bear AMT253
Hi listeners,

We kept the picture of this monster small, but click on it to see the big version. But BEWARE, it may make you spit out your breakfast. But, believe it or not, someone wishes to own this bear SO MUCH that it has caused a rift in a friendship. Hear all about it in Answer Me This! Episode 253:

Today we discuss:

summer jobs
summer camp
rat poison
Australia’s bush capital
Helen vs. Michael Jackson
Refreshers vs. Refreshers
Crash vs. Crash
dying and decaying alone
handmade cheques
funfair capitalism
the sword in Disney’s stone
lobster hunting.

Plus: Olly is all about the winning, not the taking part; from humble childhood aspirations, Helen grew up into this (warning: disturbing); and Martin the Sound Man seems upset that Kids These Days prefer Nemo to Pinocchio. Nobody likes a fibber, Martin.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices and Android), Olly describes how the late Margaret Thatcher out-Beadled the late Jeremy Beadle. Maybe he pranked her back in the 80s and this was her comeback. What a pair!

As usual, we invite you to send us your QUESTIONS: leave voicemails on the Question Line by calling 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis; or email answermethispodcast@googlemail.com. From those, more AMT will be begotten.

See you next week,

Helen & Olly

    I’m pretty sure that the “plushie” is not a bear, but an orangutan, or “old man of the forest” as the native tribes of Borneo referred to them. I don’t, however, think identifying it as such makes it any less disturbing. Orangutans are classified in the genus Pongo, which was the name of the daddy dog in 101 Dalmations…weird, huh?

  2. Stephen Says:

    That plush animal looks like a stuffed version of that Ecce Homo painting that the old lady ruined last year full head beard and all, all it needs is to be draped in a red tablecloth.

  3. Neddie Says:

    I’m 20, and I went to Disneyland Paris for the first time last year (the first time I’ve been to any of the Disney parks). Despite never really being a fan, to my surprise I was quickly caught up in the magic of it all, and I am pleased to say that the sword in the stone is still there for people to pose with, although most other traces of Arthur and Merlin have disappeared.
