Today we mourn. We mourn questioneer Calum’s half-eyebrow, taken from him too soon. Our deepest sympathies, Calum.

Also in Answer Me This! Episode 347, we consider:

getting lucky at potlucks
Letchworth Garden City
bread crusts
Ebenezer Howard
the Spirella Building
the Cheap Cottages Exhibition Ideal Home Show
glittery puddings
dead dogs
draining cats
vampire bats.

Plus, can we get your input on:
i. Michael Parkinson’s height? Is he 5’10” or over 7′ tall?
ii. Alumni of Olly’s school who are more famous than Olly (and thus also more famous than George Lamb and Sonia Friedman)?
iii. Chocolate fondants looking like parted legs, all sexy-like?

In today’s Bonus Bit of Crap on the App – available for iPadPhones, Android and Windows devices – there’s a warning about which films to go to see at the cinema if you want to sit next to Olly frigging himself raw. Or which ones to avoid if you don’t.

Do NOT avoid our album AMT Love, in which we talk for an hour about sex and relationships (with some phenomenal musical work by Martin, exclusive to this). It’s available from the AMT store – you can also get it from iTunes and Amazon, if you prefer – along with our other albums and our classic episodes.

BTW, if mention of ‘November Rain’ made you want to hear more, we talk about it in AMT131, so try that one. And don’t forget to subscribe to AMT if you don’t already to receive a monthly Retro AMT episode in your feed!

Keep your ears busy with our other audio projects: Olly has a new one, The Week Unwrapped; Helen’s Allusionist is about to unleash new episodes about romance; and Martin’s Song By Song has reached that Tom Waits song that he had to sue Levi’s over.

    Listening to last months podcast on my commute this morning and 2 items led me yo my question. First you were talking about animals named after literary heroes, followed by a new ident sung by Elvis. Well in 1977 I was on Honeymoon in the North Devon town of Westward Ho! when Elvis died. After listening to none stop Elvis on Radio Luxembourg, they cancelled all advertising that night as a mark of respect, we got up to dozens of aging teds reading the mornings papers and crying at the news. The rest of the week they took over the entertainment lounge singing tributes to the king. This was years before karaoke became popular. Now my question. Are there any other toens that have a punctuation mark as part of their name or is Westward Ho! unique?

  2. Simon Says:

    Dunedin is pronounced /dʌˈniːdᵻn/ done-ee-din, with the emphasis on the second syllable. It’s an an Anglicised version of the Gaelic for Edinburgh, Dùn Èideann /ˈt̪uːn ˈeːtʲən̪ˠ/.

  3. Berry from San Jose Says:

    Just finished listening to AMT 347, great as always.

    As for the married couple getting married, how about this: They have a humanist ceremony as described, and if asked about the Registry formalities, say “We did it before”. Just not HOW LONG before. It ain’t lyin’!

    Your jingles have given me earworms again, which leads to a question you may choose to use on the show: Why do we get earworms? How do they work, and is there a way to get rid of them besides replacing them with another, often worse, earworm?
