    The strange thing is I’ve actually seen an Indian film about cricket but it’s not that one. It was called ‘Lagaan’ and I ended up watching the whole thing.

  • I think we all know that I haven’t listened to this yet.

  • I have now listened to the first two minutes, after which I had to stop it because I was laughing uncontrollably in a very crowded tube carriage. It was the jaffanaff that finished me off.

    I was on the sofa listening to it, so nobody had to listen to my loud Jimmy Carr-esque chortle bouncing around the room.

    I like us. We talk about good things.

  • We do. And it’s only because of our wide-ranging expertise in many fields of human endeavour that we can hold such informed and enlightening conversations as this one. What other group could speak with such towering authority about both cake and cricket?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    No-one. Ever. It is us and only us who have ever bridged the two topics together. It’s such an obvious pairing though I am surprised nobody has ever done it before.


  • I think it’s also very impressive that we’re able to display such a great sensitivity to Indian language and culture in this discussion.


  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    We could do this with most topics. I bet we’d equally breeze through a conversation about tonic water and Iceland.

  • That’s a challenge I am willing to accept.

    I’d say we should shake hands. I would say that we should shake hands. We should s-hake hands. Not that we will, because we won’t.


  • I’m going to tell everyone we shook hands anyway. They can’t prove we didn’t.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    You’re right. In fact this conversation will continue, if indeed it can continue, as if in the gap between these two comments we shook hands.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Bliss.

  • Indeed. And can I just say what a magnificently firm and reassuring handshake that was.

  • Thank you. I was using one and a half hands.

  • Excellent. That’s the optimal number, according not just to me, but also the UN.
