the dream is over

November 5, 2012


Much of the USA has already had a rough few days, and I’m sorry, but I’m about to make things even rougher.

Brace yourself for more bad news:

My mum is definitely not eligible to become the President of the USA.

Aside from the reasons for disqualification as listed in AMT235, she actually had to give up her US citizenship in 1970 when she married my father: they wouldn’t let her have dual nationality, so to allow my South African father to remain in the UK, she had to choose to be 100% British.

Of course now, after 41 years of darning his underpants and withstanding his puns, she might be regretting that decision.

Also, everybody everywhere, listen to Answer Me This! Episode 235:

Today we consider:

the phrase ‘When in Rome’
in-store radio stations
Jim Carrey’s canine car
Paul the psychic octopus
Daryl Denim
supermarket censorship
James Bond’s eccentric tastes
money-grabbing Methodist missionaries.

Plus: Olly looks into his political crystal ball and sees Condi there; Helen broke a letter chain as a child, so little wonder she is a lonely layabout now; and Martin the Sound Man needs to delete his search history before we all find out why he knows such a lot about horse fluffers.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices and Android) we examine how the scandal raging around Jimmy Savile could have devastating effects…upon the cement industry.
