“Old Spike”, as he was quickly termed by the chatroom last time he was here, is finally back in the sprawling studio complex to deliver his trademark brand of atheistic charm, doubting wit and loud coughs. Give that man a microphone windshield, quick!!
Spike The Younger and Spike The Elder talk about the recent terrorist events at Glasgow airport, where Old Spike and Mrs. Old Spike depart from, and the local fallout from the Al Qaeda Laurel And Hardy unit’s attempt to bring “another nice jihad” to Scotland’s biggest city. They discuss the local Muslim community’s reaction and ridicule Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beliefs, even in the face of the world’s most famous magician telling it like it is, in magic. Old Spike reveals his favourite Abbot and Costello movie (and drops the F-Bomb in the process) and answers a few more pressing questions from the chatroom.
Also on the agenda, the retired teacher talks about language and the reesnt moov by a weerd orgnizayshn to mayk speling more simpl, and sets next week’s homework: if you were going to be marooned on a desert island, what ten movies would you take with you, and why? Email your list to TheRageMachine@gmail.com and we’ll talk about them next week. Old Spike’s a big movie buff and he’ll have his list ready, so he’s very intrigued to see what you choose.
On Old Spike’s nightstand, and given a glowing review, is Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion”. Poor Spike Jr’s “A Fair Sheik” joke falls flat, but oh well… tomorrow is another day.
