Listen to Episode 8: Greg Davies, Jason Byrne and the giant Yorkshire pigPosted by Ben Shires on 14 Oct 11
Holler, amigos and aimgettes! How are you today? I hope you don’t mind me saying, but you smell great. Good on you for taking my advice and washing at least twice a week, it’s improved your overall likeability no end. I predict big things for you after this.
I’ll tell you who else smells great; Greg Davies. And let me just go on record as saying that he definitely DID NOT threaten to crush me with those big, sweaty hands of his if I said otherwise. In actual fact, old Greg (no, not THAT Old Greg ) was the perfect gent, like when the Beast from Beauty and the Beast turns back into a man; still unnervingly massive, but charming with it. I suppose that makes me Belle, which in terms of spelling is fairly close to Ben, and we’re both quite bookish too. Yes, I’m pleased with this analogy: “tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, Benny and the Greg”. I predict Disney will be all over this like a money hungry rash and it’ll hit cinemas in time for Christmas.
Anyway, sorry to get all animated (groan) there. It really was a marvelous chin waggle though; Greg and I talked about all sorts (mm, licorice) at great length, including his own great length, his colourfully cuboid man-bits and his eccentric Dad, a concept I had no problem in relating to. And talking of my old man, he might not have made a direct appearance on the show this week, but his stock continues to rise – the @pronger69 Twitter feed now has over 130 followers and counting. And believe me, he’s counting.
Also dropping into the studio this week was amnesiac action man Jason Bourne, fresh from having foiled yet another terrorist plot. Actually, having read that back I’m not sure it was him. Nope, on second thoughts there was much more blarney than bravado, which means it can only have been Irish wit and raconteur Jason Byrne, who despite not having the Hollywood credentials, can still throw a mean punch when necessary. And having joined us directly from an interview with BBC Breakfast, it was most certainly necessary.
Anyway, for some reason you’re still reading words rather than listening to sounds, so go on, off you scuttle to download this little gem before your ears revolt. And I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news, but you’d just look plain weird without ears.
