My father-in-law told me this morning that Brough Scott had died. Not a good week for sports presenters, I thought, but of course he was just being a confused idiot as usual.

In the US Office, Andy Bernard’s friend who is often mentioned but never seen - Broccoli Rob - has a name which is a pun on foodstuff broccoli rabe.

"Grand slam" is what some individual tennis tournaments are called, rather than a name for winning all of the tennises.

It's both - so the events in questions are individually grand slams, but a player is said to win the grand slam if they win all four in a year.

I've been listening to Zappa for years but the penny's only just dropped on the pun in 'In France' - diseases like you ain't never seen, and a blow-job that can turn your peter green.

I don't know the song, but is there any PG musical quotation there? They couldn't let that one pass by. In the song where he says "come to skim the CREAM" there's a blast of the Sunshine riff real quick.

Richard Herring's podcasts about playing himself at snooker and clearing a field of stones are real, not just long-running jokes. I am worried, proper All Work and no Play stuff.

I've always been curious how the snooker one would even work, but nowhere near enough to actually listen and find out.

It's simple isn't it? It's how Bobby Fischer got so good at chess, he constantly had a tiny magnetic set on him he'd use continuously by trying to play against himself each move. You just pretend you're playing an opponent and try to pot something or snooker them, then switch to the mindset of the imagined opponent and do the same to your previous guise. And black out and murder prostitutes.

The idea that it doesn’t work at all (in combination with Herring’s gleeful commitment to it) is why it works.

I mean, I haven’t listened to Rich’s output for literally 3 years at this point, but used to enjoy them. Knockabout bit of absurdist humour.

Not as far as I can tell, although the whole thing's a kind of swampy blues. Could just have been a funny coincidence.

Hammer House of Horror wasn't the name of the studio that made horror films, it was a TV anthology series.

When something disintegrates it dis-integrates. I dunno, surely I can't have just realised this which is beyond obvious. I have just dropped a cherished ornament of a nuthatch and dis-integrated into particles again that which was previously integrated and formed into the shape of its beak. Sakes

Did you know that Michael Stipe from REM and Kurt Cobain were neighbours and bet each other who could write a hit song with the most 'yeahs,' and REM did Man on the Moon and Nirvana did Lithium?
