  • I listened to three quarters of it and had to stop from laughing.

    I also still don’t know what elevenses is.

  • I have now listened to this and it made me laugh out loud on a crowded tube train.

    The thing that struck me most is that all the way through Kev says “elevenses” but Ian says “elevensies”, like it rhymes with “onesies”.

  • That bugged me whilst I was editing it. I think you can tell it bugged me at the time. I clearly over pronounce it a few times throughout the conversation to try and get him to say it properly.

  • I didn’t do the traditional show notes on this one either so as not to spoil the reveal of the Terracotta Vienetta™.

  • The Terracotta Vienetta was what made me snort with laughter on a train. I did wonder why there was no list and now I see it was all part of a cunning plan.

  • It has a nice ring to it. Words that sounds nice should be put together, like Wetter Otter Sweater.

  • I put together a wetter otter sweater once. The bastards didn’t appreciate it. Turns out their fur is better at keeping them warm in the water.

  • Did you wham it together with tape? Perhaps they didn’t fully appreciate it because you built it wrong


  • No, I didn’t. I feared the tape would stop being sticky once it was wetter. That explains everything. The whamming would have solved that.

  • I think someone needs to step in and have a word.

    *steps in*

    You are not an inventor. You should not be an inventor, leave it to pros like me. If you cannot even get the whamming right then there’s no hope.

  • I remember once I had the opportunity to attend a one-day course called An Introduction to Whamming. I didn’t go because I didn’t see what use it would be. Now I know. Now I am doomed to live a lifetime of regret.

  • I went on that course, and I believe you dodged a bullet. I thought, as you did, that it would be a 101 course on inventor’s whamming, but sadly it was a course teaching the best way to be a Wham! superfan. I was very disappointed, especially as they forced us all to join the Wham! fanclub and take away a copy of Wham!’s greatest hits.

  • Oh god. That wasn’t what I wanted at all. I can put up with “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go” very occasionally if it happens to be on the radio but I’ve no intention of becoming a superfan. What did you do with the greatest hits CD?

  • He framed that sucker and it’s only the Changlet’s bedroom wall, so George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley can inspire his child to achieve GREAT things.

  • That’s a big CD if it forms a whole bedroom wall. I wonder what other CDs form the other walls? I bet Bula Quo is one of them.

  • Kevindo Menendez has a full size Bula Quo, a full size Michael Bolton and also the greatest hits of Barbara Dixon.

  • That’s as may be, but which, if any, of them form Changlet’s bedroom walls? I’m pretty sure one wall will be the greatest hits of Mike and the Mechanics. That’s the way to raise a child.

  • That is. Also, Mental as Anything and Wang Chung. I am reliably informed that there is a full size Wang Chung clogging up the halls.
