Has anyone ever translated the French Taxidermist saga from the R1 show?

I've looked on Google, and briefly scanned pages 1-9 of this forum, but nothing apparently (if there is, sorry for being wonky-eyed).

I want a complete transcript in English and I want it NOW.

Across the course of two shows, Chris Morris, claiming to be the controller of BBC Radio, phones up a series of French taxidermists in order to have Dead Johnny Walker stuffed and/or source a diorama. His French sounds pigeon, but it's hard to know if this is deliberate, as part of the ambush? (he frequently addresses the receptionist by the wrong sex, Dead Parrot-style). Don't speak French myself because I'm borderline Pub Landlord.

29 years worth of mystery solved. Weirdly indulgent, aren't they, the French? Almost like Chris Morris' usual vox pop victims, they just get drawn in.

Makes you think, though. Post-retirement, Steve Wright better watch his step.
