*Not really. She refuses to respond to our postcards.

On today’s question-answering slate:

female strippers
male strippers
Grumpy Cat
beckoning cats
Lil Bub: the Chris Martin of cats
Ben Lashes
fast food delivery
wedding diplomacy
Happy Meal toys
Ronald McDonald vs Carol Vorderman
human beatboxing

Plus: Olly’s brain or his wang can be stimulated, but never at the same time; Helen could have been the late-90s Beanie Baby trading magnate of Tunbridge Wells; and Martin the Sound Man exercises uncharacteristic restraint in the face of a question about beatboxing. Though he still manages to sound like he’s polishing a window with his own spit.

Today’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App contains further contemplation of memes and cats and the internet’s favourite/Helen’s least favourite, cat memes. Hear on your iDevices, Android and Windows gadgets.

    Important news from listener Adrian about Burger King doing home delivery: http://www.itv.com/news/2015-02-19/burger-king-launches-uk-home-deliveries/

  2. Paul from Melbourne, Australia Says:

    McDonald’s Australia is trialling home delivery in partnership with a company called Menulog which home delivers from real restaurants.

    Lifehacker.com.au has just reviewed the service:

    You say that the definition of a nut is really broad, but botanically, it’s ridiculously narrow, as David Mitchell humourously explains here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxOKzMcVqxA&t=11m15s or as Wikipedia unhumourously explains here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nut_(fruit)#Botanical_definition . Basically the only thing we commonly eat that is a nut is the hazelnut. There’s also chestnuts, but we don’t eat chestnuts much anymore because chestnut trees are too susceptible to blight. There are virtually no chestnut trees in America because they were wiped out a century ago by chestnut blight. So peanuts, almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, pine nuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, cashews, pecans, none of them are, botanically, nuts.
