Rum Doings Episode 35

by on Jul.15, 2010, under Rum Doings, The Rest

It’s a back to basics, good old fashioned family values 35th episode of Rum Doings. Just Nick, John, a microphone and a disgusting bottle of rum. And this week we’re not discussing whether FIFA should have to bring in the rule that they should have the cameras in the goal posts to see if the goals are scored instigated.

We bring you some genuinely excellent news from Sainsbury’s (which apparently might be quite old news), and then move on to talk about John’s weekend break, and the joys of a British B&B. This of course involves tales of ketchup and coffee.

We talk about awful people, and responses to cold callers. Nick predicts the end-times, which brings us to the stories about the BP methane bubble. And where exactly does oil come from?

We finish by talking about Raoul Moat, although this was recorded before Cameron made his remarkable comments about feeling no sympathy.

    I’m pretty sure you were thinking of the Seventh Day Adventists, the remainders of the Millerite movement that was sure Jesus was going to show up at any moment in the mid 19th century.

    Nick is fibbing about how he deals with marketing phone calls.

    He passes the phone to me.

    The JWs claimed the world would end following the return of Jesus (invisible) in 1914

    Then that it would end within the lifetime of those around in 1914.

    And eventually that it would end at some undefined point in the near future.

    I’d never heard of people pretending to be from Microsoft cold-calling folk but just saw this on the Guardian.

    Anyone know if this type of thing’s been going on for a while? A bit worrying regardless.
