    Hurray !!!
    All that singin’ by me of the Jacksons song “I want you back” worked !
    Kaleidescopes, purloined whiskey, (there’s an ‘e’ in in, Siobhan) – that other stuff is made by the Scotts and is only fit for children and the elderly… 😉
    Puerto Rican stereotypes ? SIgn me up for the rice and beans; what do they do with all thise hubcaps anyway ?
    Oh, speaking of stereotypes, time for a riverdance and a fistfight with a leprechaun ( The Mad Sweeney, of course…)
    A young Tina Fay indeed !
    Take care

    Sometimes I don’t notice when the photos are boring because you all keep me entertained throughout the show, so I feel like it was a fun show anyway.

      Pretty sure when the world is destroyed by nuclear bombs, hubcaps will become a form of currency, and the Puerto Ricans will be the new world financial superpower. Or not. Rice and beans sound good, in Australia we only get the microwaved McDonaldisationed version aka Taco Bill

        That’s the spirit Mark 😉
        Personally, I’m investing all my savings in lap dancer futures and shotgun ammunition….

    I actually had to google kaleidoscopes as part of a university science thing, and there are some bad ass ones out there! Maybe that’s just the nerd in me talking though lol. Yeah young Tina Fey totally lol, but that’s a compliment. I love this show, binge watch on YouTube all the time, you guys are hilarious!

    So glad to see that you’re able to do the recap again. I still miss the Beginner Photography blog but I understand its a lot of work.
