    "Another good one"

    Another discussion from the boys, funny as always.
    Karl's right again though, by all accounts Dodo's tasted awful and weren't farmed to extinction as Ricky suggests.

    "Is what is says on the tin"

    Very funny typical Karl I wish they wouldn't say head like a f orange it don't matter if you can see the shine from space its a lovely head. The performance is very much like the televised program where all three are in the room together . LOL moments are included in this audio book I enjoyed it and will most likely listen to it again.
