    The sheep were at the start, when everything looked like farm land.

    The little kid voice from Capt. Planet made me burst out laughing at work…turned a few heads, and got you at least 1 more listener!

    Thanks again for the great podcast.

    Odd as pantomancy sounds, I can think of at least one fairly common example of it – black cats crossing paths. I’m guessing that the magpie thing would have its own separate mancy for divination from birds.

    I’ve heard the “when the door is ajar” joke a few times, and I’m in Texas, so it’s not an exclusively UK thing.

    Do you think David Ikes Olympic conspiracy may have borrowed elements from the Dr Who episode “Fear Her”?

    Really enjoy the podcast which is one of the most entertaining around.

    On Mike’s hugely unpleasant discovery under the stairs, a plausible explanation could be that it was a relic of a drug smuggling operation involving swallowed drugs?
