But it's great. Jeremy Hardy is absolutely brilliant.
Bridget Christie. A comedian and also Stewart Lee's wife.

Bridget Christie has been on the show at least a couple of times before so its a good chance it was her - I normally download the Friday Night Comedy podcast to listen later. When she was on a couple of years she had a story about how her now husband arranged their honeymoon to be at the Shetland Islands. In the middle of winter! She thought the place might have been like say the west coast of Ireland but when she got to Shetland there was nothing to with just around 4 hours of daylight a day. Literally nothing, she said it felt like she just landed on a barren treeless island and couldn't even do bird watching. The local tourist office there was open on the one day a week it was open at the time of year, and the woman there panicked when asked what to do and made up something about a nearby chocolate factory which didn't exist, so they just spent most of their time in their hotel room for a week not knowing what to do. At this point Fred McAuley interjects and points out to Bridget that 4 hours of daylight with nothing to see or do, her husband knew exactly what he was doing! :lol:

Definitely listen to it tonight then!

Edit: Actually this is myself being curious, what is the deal with the Scotch egg meme that has been floating around this board? I know its something to do with Littlejohn, but that's all I know.

Well it stems from this Charlie Booker review of Littlejohn's book.
Weirdly, they've chosen not to include any of Littlejohn's other bugbears on the cover: there are no gays or asylum seekers here. Unless, perhaps, they're crushed beneath Littlejohn's feet. It's hard to tell from the preview image on Amazon. I mean, I'd go into a bookshop and examine it in closer detail, but then I'd get Littlejohn on my hands, and my fingers would have that scotch-egg- car-fart stink on them for the rest of the day.

It just seems to have snowballed from there - long before my time - maybe one of the others could tell you more.
