    Pee Before Listening to This

    This week when The Maydays Hang Out, at Joe Bill’s mere mention of watching Bear Grylls, the conversation turns to drinking urine. And being unable to pee. Rhiannon Vivian has been painting, but feels guilty for not serving capitalism. Heather Urquhart has been to a funeral and Vinny Francois has been avoiding Bears and Moose in the woods, and Jonathan Nguyen leads an especially convolutedly-titled parlour game.
