That street fight sounded pretty wild. I'm glad he's okay. But aren't there usually police that patrol around the bar/pub areas so that kind of thing doesn't happen? They do here, anyway.

Very fun show! It ended too soon. :(

The first rule of Fight Club is that you don't talk about Fight Club Joe, no matter how great the adrenaline rush was! The whole time he was talking about the fight the lyrics to "A Certain Romance" by A.M. and "I Predict a Riot" by K.C. was playing ion my head... so much for dispelling the myth that British men like to get drunk and fight! ;)

Where I am a bit concerned with Jo and his blatant disregard for his personal safety, I think that I am more concerned that Jo didn't know that a Civil war is fought amongst it's own people and isn't between two countries. Sorry, Jo, but what are they teaching in the schools of England?

Random, but on the forum index this title shows up as "Captain P..." and I always think for a second that it's supposed to be Captain Planet. :lol:

Also, I think you guys should drink before shows more often.

What was the civil war comment? Surely Joe misspoke, even though he often plays the foil to Ben (intentional surely!) he doesn't come across as poorly educated or dumb. Being a good southern girl, I didn't realize until I was in middle school that the war of southern succession wasn't the only civil war, I just thought that was its name! As for whatever they are teaching in u.k. schools, its gotta be better than our (by that I mean North Carolina) schools. We do have a private "British School" where kids get taught the same curriculum as in free u.k. schools, and it costs $20k a year...

I apologize if I hurt anyone's feelings. And I would really not want to hurt the feelings of our fantastic hosts. :oops:

Far from it. I totally agree with what you're saying.

And Joe doesn't read this anyway, so we could totally make fun of him for being petarded and he wouldn't know...

That's not only Tezzer's, but it's also a Zinger at the same time :lol:

I do have to say SHAME ON YOU BEN! Last week you were having a nervous breakdown because Joe got a text on his phone. You just about had a stroke! This week YOU were installing apps on YOUR phone during the show. Tisk, tisk! Does the double standard apply here? :wink:

Petarded! I love it! I also like the fact that Ben's got some stick for having not one but two phones about his person during the show! He's the real Petard!

The difference is that I was entertaining, with funny noises and the like, rather than arranging my next booty call.

Hey, it wasn't me that scolded Ben about the phone- how did I get quoted? (though I did notice that). Maybe if you commandeer his phone and read out the messages it would stop...(and would be pretty funny I bet)
