The Paul And Spike Show, Monday Morning Catch-up!

A guest this week made it The Paul And Spike And Old Spike Show! Yes, Old Spike and I had a drink or two (a bottle of merlot and a Yeungling Lite each) so there's giggling a-plenty. Hopefully, you'll giggle, too, and not just go "wow... what a pair of annoying mongs." Nevertheless - if you happened to miss the show over the weekend, here's your chance to catch it now. Share and enjoy!

Spike's dad, Old Spike, is in town, bearing gifts for Paul. The three drunskateers discuss many-a-subject, including a word they can't say, inter-city relations and Arah-say, Alin-pay.

02:16 BUSTED! Paul hears pouring, so the jig's up for a Booze Update. Old Spike shares his medicine, but Paul's keeping The Good Stuff™ to himself. What's the hardest booze that Old Spike's ever imbibed? He tells the story, which involved extinguishing all cigarettes...

06:10 Old Spike's got some stuff to give to Paul, one part of which is 50% Welsh, one part is a movie that contains an unbroadcastable word and one is a recording which reached ye top fpotte in Cafey Cafem'f Top LX Countedown.

22:43 News and current affairs have never sounded so much like The South. Them boys is Pickin' And Grinnin', yuh-huh.

24:10 A few tasteless jokes and a taste of the Yuengling Light leads into the bulging postbag from last week's show, including some lovely comments from the eRepublik people, and another great full-episode commentary from Robin.

28:30 Somehow, probably because of the booze, the subject gets onto how people perceive the citizens of another country. Yeah... I'm not sure how that happened either. The Boys talk about the differences between the folks of big cities and smaller cities, and the time Mrs. Old Spike brought home a French girl. Ye-e-e-essss.

49:44 The rebuttal to Robin's letter gets the kibosh because Old Spike wants to read from the US Constitution in a WC Fields voice and from "The Book Of Lists", which - remarkably - was one of the first ever books of lists.

56:27 Sir! Trigger's been killed! As promised at the start of the show, Spike has a two-word trigger that will set both Paul and Old Spike off. These two words - a name, by the way - are summed up by Paul via a Fark.com comment regarding people who don't like "people like us" who make fun of her; "if she would just shut up and go away, it would take care of them both." Is it feasible that Old Spike, a life-long lefty, has kind words to say about Bush The Elder and John McCain?

This week, The Boys are joined by the President Of The (e)United States of America, to discuss his legacy. Also on the agenda, why it was a bad week to be a celebrity, Iran's recount and a morbid Over/Under.

00:00 Oh sure, you'd think that after replacing computers to improve the recording quality (last week's show sounded ghastly), all would be well, right? Particularly since now there's a Linux in the mix. But, alas, no. Spike's not alone when it comes to computer woes, Paul's ISP is having one of its yearly cop-outs. Will Paul the IT professional be able to convince the script-reliant customer service rep that he knows the problem is at their end...?

08:58 It's not been a safe week to be a celebrity. The Boys talk about all the dudes what snuffed it, dish out the Jackson puns and give a touching tribute to that actress who was in that thing once. On NBC. No... wait... CBS.

14:30 Between Michael Jackson dominating the newscasts and not too many protesters left out of jail to complain, there's not been much Iran news over the past week. There's been a recount - but was it fair and accurate? And what links Iran to overnight radio chappies who run out of toilet paper?

18:50 The week's news is condensed and delivered with breath that smells like moonshine and ramps, as The Boys go Pickin' And Grinnin'.

21:30 Hail to the chief, baby! Just a few days before he leaves office, President Scrabman; leader of the largest country in the New World of eRepublik, joins The Boys for his first and final interview as elected head of state. Paul's got a few questions about the game, and President Scrabman discusses his legacy.

1:05:57 It's been the most fatal week for celebrities in living memory, so The Boys talk about celebrity deaths that were given an Overabundance of media coverage or had an Underwhelming two-line obit in the Sutton And Thames-Ditton Racing Post. It features two musicianins, one comedian and someone who didn't really do anything other than ponce up and down red carpets and sponge off the taxpayers. ** Over/Under is brought to you by AbraCadaver!: don't let your murder investigation go autopsy-turvey - leave your celebrity post mortem to the experts, because your body shouldn't look bad 'cause of death. **
