Episode 11: Fish Slime and Laundry Sniffing
Another week, another episode. In the eleventh instalment of the And Finally… podcast, we chat about the lighter news stories of the week, including why being slimed might be a good thing, how to get paid to stay in bed, why headless cats are washing up on a French beach, the rising cost of funerals, and why the Pope is a bit cagey about people trying to kiss his ring. Plus, Ribs goes all street and speaks in urban slang (a true joy to behold).
This week’s sketch about the cost of funereal stone-masonry was written by Ribs. She wrote it years ago and realised just before recording that the dates reflected this. So, some hasty edits to the sketch were done on the spot, which is why there is some – not entirely inappropriate – corpsing.
