    That's it. Not asking for a while. Take it on board and either way we're glad your listening.

    Testicles and Avocados

    Testicles and Avocados

    LIVE SHOW at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival
    Despite being very appropriate for completely separate places on the body they are very much Somehow Related.

    Thanks to Vicki for suggesting this topic!
    She emailed Courtney who presented the idea to Sam who then didn't say anything about it until this episode. She really has us chasing our tale sometimes.

    Eminem and Guinness World Records

    MELBOURNE: LIVE SHOW - BOOK HERE - SOMEHOW RELATED
    Something's going on between the US rap sensation of the early 2000s and the old timey Irish book of record.
    Up front - it's got nothing to do with swearing, but we should take the opportunity to warn you again here. There's more swearing in this episode than any other before it.
    And a phone call. We've said too much!!!

    Psycho and Flushing Toilets

    Psycho and Flushing Toilets

    Psycho, as in the 1960 film by Alfred Hitchcock.
    One of the few films to have a film made about it being made. Remember that from 2012?
    Hitchcock, it was called.

    Flushing toilets don't quite get the same treatment. There's not really and ode to the throne.
    However it is much more of an equaliser than the privilege of directing films for a living.
    This was noted 15th century philosopher Michel de Montaigne when he said:
    ‘Kings and philosophers shit — and so do ladies.’
    Bam!

Georgielew ,

Always want to listen!

God these guys crack me up! Their meandering ways, the tangents and close-to-Home details only add to the enjoyment of what is quite a fascinating premise. Makes me miss my home country, from far away. Love you guys!!!
