Simon: Right click, save as took longer than the actual recording!

Lewis: YourlisteningtotheYoGPoD

Simon: YourlisteningtotheYoGPoD

Simon: Anyway, Nick Fuckface sends us this lovely story about the YoGPoD challenge we did ages ago, about shaking up a can of pop. and he says:

"Good afternoon, my main man Lewis! Today the purpose of this e-mail is to inform you of something that happened recently in my life after hearing Simon challenge my manly authority by saying that if I had the balls to record myself shaking up a soda can really well, and having a friend record me."

Simon: Oh, That's it! He doesn't know how to construct a sentence... okay

Lewis: Like most of our listeners, yeah!

"Immediately, I rung up a few friends and said: 'Hey, want to come over to my house and quickly help me with something?' Of course they rejected, since most of them do not like me after I showed them your YoGPoD. Anyway, I thought: 'Okay, this will be terrible since I have no-one to record me, and you will just think I am a nutter.' But then I remembered! I have a sister! She is about 14 years old, I am 17 I said: 'Hey, come over here and record this for me, I need it for a science assignment.' I guess since she was doing nothing, she accepted, and held the camera for me. So she starts recording me, and I say: 'Hello, I am Dave! Yognaut and I have the balls!'  I immediately toss the can at a wall in order for it to be a legit test."

Lewis: Hang on hang on! Stop stop stop

Simon: Oh here we go!

Lewis: Hello! I am Dave! Yognaut and I have the balls?! That is now our official phrase!

Simon: That should be our new...

Lewis: I have the balls!


Lewis: Wow!

Simon: That's amazing!

Simon: So he tosses the can of cola or whatever it is, (at the wall), in order for it shake it up, so he throws it at the wall, "I have the Balls!!" throws it at the wall...

"Suddenly, the can starts shrieking. Me and my sister look at eachother in shock, I begin to make my way towards the can to tap it (in order to contine with the test, I guess), and I hear a loud banging noise coming from the can. I am scared. I am nervous. I am sweating. And my sister is laughing, while recording me watching this can screech and make loud banging noises. I leap towards the can and grab hold of it. The can starts resisting my grasp. I hold on as tightly as I can and annihilate the top of the can. I grab the little handle while the can shakes furiously and screeches at me."

Lewis: Handle?!

Simon: I don't know what he's talking about

Lewis: What kinda of can is this!?

Simon: I have no idea, and he annihilates the top of that can

Lewis: This is a nightmare!

Simon: He says:

I grab the little handle while the can shakes furiously and screeches at me, and without thinking, I pull the handle.

Simon: Oh he means the tab, on the top I guess! Are you ready for this?

Lewis: No

Simon: "The can explodes. Giant beams of Coca-Cola shoot all over my room. One surges towards my sister and blows a hole in her head, killing her instantly. My house begins to fall apart, I hear the loudest noise I have ever heard in my life. I slowly turn around to see a rip in the space-time continuum. It is sucking everything it can: my neighbours, my pets, my house, my sister's corpse, my property, my street, my region, my city, my state, my country (Australia),

Lewis: Oh!

and then it overloaded and exploded. All that was left was a small island, me and my computer and video camera. A single tear was running down my eye, as I thought about all the things I would never do again, the people I would never see again. I then went on my computer and began this e-mail. In conclusion; no, tapping the top of a soda can will not stop it from exploding if it is shaken. It does not work, do not try it ever, okay? Sincerely, a true Australian YoGPoD fan."

Lewis: Thanks Nick!

Simon: That's Nick FuckFace, and then he's got a PS:

"P.S.: My sister didn't even record, what the fuck stupid bitch!"

Lewis: That's not very nice!

Simon: Not something nice to say about your, dead sister, jeez!

Lewis: No! You shouldn't do that, that's terrible, well?

Simon: We got there in the end, finally reading out this e-mail after many, many months

Lewis: Can you see why I didn't read that one out before though?

(Lewis laughs)

Lewis: I mean you are scraping the bottom of the poo barrel, basically

Simon: It's brilliant, it's brilliant, it's delicious creamy poo and I'm happy to rub it over my face

Lewis: I am Dave! Yognau(gh)t,

Lewis and Simon: And I have the balls!

Simon: Oh god, I mean that is good isn't it, I am Dave! YogPod and I have the balls!

(Lewis laughs)

Simon: Ok, I've got some more, there's some more liners, oh Jesus, oh God

Lewis: Ok

SImon: Ar... Fransesco Bourg Banatchi, which is the widest fucking, everyone's got a weird name if their not English

Lewis: Yep

Simon: I always find that, isn't that strange, how to me, an English person, un-English names seam weird.

Fransesco (whispering): You are listening to the listening to the YogPod!

Simon: A serial killer in the making. Thank you Fransesco

Lewis: Oh goodness, that's terrifying

Simon: Fransesco, whatever, I think he's Italian with a name like that. Wakeem, there’s another Wakeem. I don’t think it’s our Wakeem though, it’s a different one.

Wakeem: You are listening to the, YOGPOD!

Wakeem: You are listening to the, YOGPOD!

Wakeem: You are listening to the, YOGPOD!

Lewis: I like the way you felt the need to play that three times in a row.

Simon: Yeah...

(Lewis and Simon laugh)

Lewis: I liked it when it was just one. *Chuckles* Two ok...

Simon: I thought it was good. Thank you Wakeem, Yonso...

Lewis: I think it’s good. I like it, thank you.

Simon: Thank you. Thank you. Casper. This is his, this is his weird email. *clears throat* Casper... Lerkison, possibly is his name.

I recorded the phrase “You are listening to the YoGPoD” normally, then reversed it, and taught myself how that sounded.

Simon: Ok *laughs*

Lewis: Right, ok. That’s amazing.

Simon: So he’s, he’s, he’s learned how to phonetically say “You are listening to the YoGPoD” backwards, and then he recorded that and reversed it. So... he’s actually got him saying it the right way around, but it’s gonna sound weird because he actually said it backward and then he recorded it, and then reversed it.

Lewis: Ok...

Simon: Which is just... I don’t even know.

Lewis: Yeah, yeah.

Simon: I do not even know. So hang on, we’re gonna have to listen to this beautiful, beautiful magnificent shit.

Casper (backwards): *Gibberish*

Lewis: *Groans*

Casper (reversed): You are listening to the YoGPoD

(Lewis laughs)

Simon: Oh my fucking god that is terrifying! That is terrifying. So the first one is him saying it backwards, and this, the one that I just played is him...

Lewis: Right yeah, I got that, yeah.

Simon: ...reversing him saying it backwards, so it’s like something out of fucking Twin Peaks. Let’s listen, listen to that again, hang on...

(Replays the two recordings)

Lewis: I love it, it’s brilliant.

Simon: That’s how deaf people talk, isn’t it. That makes me feel just a little bit weird.

(Lewis laughs)

Simon: So that’s Casper, Casper Larkison, Lerpison.

Lewis: Well that’s, that’s hilarious, I love that one as well.

Simon: (mimicing recording) You are listening to the YoGPoD

Lewis: Yeah, I love it.

Simon: See, it took me literally seconds to do it myself, and you went through all the effort of learning how to say it backwards. *Laughs* Oh, that is genius, that is absolutely genius. He’s from Denmark, bless him, someone has to be. It’s a brilliant one. It could be me doing it, it’s that good. Hang on... It’s from Oliver Hollsworth Banes, who’s uh I actually remember, he’s on Facebook, he’s a friend on Facebook.

Lewis: Alright, ok.

Simon: Oliver Hollsworth Banes, it’s not a name you forget in a hurry, is it?

Lewis: It’s a, it’s a good British name. Normal name.

Simon (posh accent): Hello, I am Oliver Hollsworth Banes!

(Lewis laughs)

Simon: That’s pretty much it.

Lewis: Yeah. He’s a lord, he lives in like a mansion.

Oliver: YOU ARE LISTENING TO THE YOG pod pod pod pod...

Lewis: Beautiful.

Simon: Thank you Oliver. Pod pod. Thank you Oliver ver ver...

Lewis: Thank you Oliver. That’s good, I like that one, it’s very good. Uh very professionally done, and uh perfect. Perfect! That’s exactly what we wanted. That fits the job spec, and none of this...

Lewis (singing): This is Michael McDonald...

Simon (singing): ... and I listen to the YoGPoD all day.

Lewis: Or any of this uh, youarelistingtotheYoGPoD.

Simon (singing): This is Michael McDonald and I listen to the YoGPoD all day.

Simon: It’s funny because, I mean, Peter Maserati did loads of good liner, he did like eight liners in total, yet that is the one that we’re going to remember.

(Lewis laughs)

Lewis: Yeah, that is the one we’re gonna remember forever.

Simon: I’ll be singing it on my deathbed. (Sings sadly): This is Michael McDonald and I listen to the YoGPoD all *sound of dying*.

(Lewis laughs)

Liner: Kenny Baker...

Lewis: So what’s happened since the last podcast?

Simon: Um...

Lewis: I think we’ve actually got a new government for a start...

Simon: Yeah, we’ve got a new government, and summer, has been and gone in Britain.

Lewis: Yeah

Simon: Uh, it’s been all change...

Lewis: It’s a miserable day outside, but it was lovely last week, um, and I’m sure the sunny weather will come back, and it’ll be fine.

Simon: It’s so fucking British talking about the weather. We could be talking about politics, but it’s like, oh no, no.

Lewis: Yeah. So our new prime minister is called Dave.

Simon: Yeah

Lewis: I think he’s like the first Dave to be prime minister...

Simon: Really?

Lewis:’s kinda cool

Simon: Really??

Lewis: I think I heard that somewhere, yeah.

Simon: Are you sure about that?

Lewis: All of them before have been called a bit more posh things...
