elephant gelatine
Frankel
Milky Way
Percy Pig and Pals confectionery counterfeits
Game On
cutlery rules
bow tie rules
Monopoly real estate
dishwasher doors
Rizla+
Bill Bottrell
Mr Mars
Olympics keyrings
Brent Dixon’s keychains
the mystery of ‘Black or White’
and
onesies.

Plus: Olly admits that he likes to be infantilised, to the surprise of nobody; Helen finds out where to pass ‘Go’, but nobody gives her £200; and capitalist Martin the Sound Man gets trumped playing Socialist Monopoly.

In this week’s Bit of Crap on the App (available for iDevices and Android) we discuss Channel 4’s Wank Week, which never aired because it was too classy for their schedules.

Don’t think you’re too classy to send us your QUESTIONS: all are welcome, so email them to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com, or leave a voicemail on the Question Line 0208 123 5877 or Skype ID answermethis.

See you next Thursday,

    With regards to the Percy Pigs thing at the beginning of the episode – as a fan of them myself, when I once happened to go to an M&S garage on the hunt for some Percy flavoured goodness, imagine my absolute horror at discovering the only ones they had were the vegetarian ones! I was convinced they couldn’t be anywhere near as good, but I bought them anyway, because even sub-par crack is better than no crack at all. However, it turns out they are not just as good as them – they are even better! The sneaky vegetarians have been hiding the secret all these years. So Olly, if you read any of these, I would urge you to please, please just try one bag of the veggie ones and see what you think.

    My dear brother enjoys pushing the limit of what he can get away with getting iced on Thornton’s chocolates – these are some of his best ones:

    “Dear Richard – I’m sorry I slept with your wife”

    “To the best radiologist there is from all of us at Dynamico Incorporated”

    I don’t quite know how he keeps getting away with it. But he loves icing.

    Amused me when you said the French aren’t known for their construction of joints. That’s not my experience..!
