In this exciting episode, our heroes, Tash and PantslessJam, meander through some holiday topics. While the energy was low, the insight… was also low. Indeed, there’s not much to recommend this episode, but you never know. Out of something that might seem objectively terrible, you may find the love of your life. We know that Tash did.
Here’s to your holidays going well, or at least being short.
Tash and PantslessJam
P.S. Here is Tash’s recipe for Bailey’s Balls (or Rum Balls if you insist on tradition):
1 packet Nice biscuits
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of desiccated coconut
a few tablespoons of cocoa
a few tablespoons of Bailey’s
1 additional cup of coconut for rolling
Crush up your biscuits (I find a big bowl and the end of a rolling pin to be the way to go)
Throw in your booze, condensed milk, cocoa and the first cup of coconut
Mix it all up
Pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes or so to harden up a bit
Get out 2 plates: one for your second cup of coconut and one for the finished balls
Grab about a big teaspoon of mixture, roll it into a ball in your hands, then roll it in the coconut to coat it
Boom, you’re done! Repeat for the rest of the mixture.
*I don’t know where this recipe came from – probably a magazine or such like once upon a time. It’s a fairly common one and I do not claim ownership*

P.s. On the theme of answering questions, you may have noticed that we’ve updated our FAQs! Think we’ve missed anything? Let us know in the comments.
1. Tash also promised reputable research. There are a huge number of academic and scholarly works which look at plurality and pronouns in English, such as: Raymond Hickey (ed.) Legacies of Colonial English, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004; or this book by Diana Eades

They say third time’s the charm; they also you you can’t trust a man with two first names; so ‘they’ are clearly morons. But even a broken clock is right twice a day (well, once in twenty-four hour time). And maybe, just maybe those morons are right about our third time out.
In any case, we are excited for this topic: food, a subject near and dear to our hearts. In PantslessJam’s case, only the cholesterol part of food is near his heart, the calories are around his waist and vitamins in his bright blue eyes. But we both have a passion for food. So sit down and tuck in to a big helping of ‘Heaps Funny But’.
