Episode 436 – 23/01/11 #FjordNation

The gang is all back for the new year to recap all of the news that’s elapsed in the last few weeks during the break with #TFC including recent departures, talk some new signings to #TFClive, some CanSoc media news, and a bunch of other malarkey. In this episode Kristin is all about frankincense, Mark doesn’t know ALL about A-Ha’s hits (I know, right?!), Duncan makes a prostate joke and Tony makes an appropriate small-fruit based gag regarding future broadcasts.

  1. This is what Vocal Minority is all about! Hard hitting Milk bag discussion that the people need to hear. In these difficult times, these are the stories that the fine folk of upper Canada are clamoring for.

    I yearn for your debate on the chip controversy… ketchup or all dressed? Which is a feast for your taste buds? And which can really be classified as a home grown dish of this nation.

    Also which is the proper pairing with a glass of sumptuous Niagara ice wine? Nanaimo bars,butter tarts or beaver tails? And why are the delectable beaver tails so rare to find outside the capital city of this land? It is an outrage that one has to traverse many trails and towns in a vain search for this gift from the gods.

  2. Have you heard the new announcement?! I haven’t been this gitty in excitement in something in red since TFC was first officially revealed!

    The fine folks of this nation gaze up the gleaming red sign…

    Zellers is back, baby!

    Vocal Minority tampering with the time space continuim finally causes a rift that presents a gift from the heavens. I finally can get Zeddy the bear to hug and kiss again!

  3. Mark frantically on the phone trying to reach members of the Vocal Minority podcast…

    “I don’t care what your doing! I hereby declare an emergency Vocal Minority meeting. This can’t wait! Stop whatever your doing! Drop the lasagna, drop the fine China, drop the baby! What? I don’t care that your occupied. Must I remind you that you signed a contract?! Section B2 of page seven of Vocal Minority emergency clause! Get out of the shower, kitchen, or your wife! She’ll understand.”

    Banging on the door of Vocal Minority Studios. The door opens and half dressed disheveled members spill forth into the room.

    Mark, “I couldn’t believe the news when I first heard it!”

    Duncan, “I knew it, Messi is coming to MLS!”

    Mark, “No, something old Is back.”

    Kristin,” Seba, is coming back!?”

    Mark, “No, not soccer related. Something dead is alive again!”

    Duncan,” The Queen just died… she’s alive?!”

    Tony, “No way, I swear she looked dead for years.”

    Duncan, “Maybe its like that movie, Weekend at Bernies. She barely does anything anyway, you could easily pass off her dead body as alive. Strap her on a jetski at the beachfront house and nobody would be the wiser!”

    Tony, “Maybe it’s like the sequel. Weekend at Bernies 2. They got a witchdoctor to reanimate her corpse.”

    “I didn’t even know they made a sequel!”

    “When you make a classic like that you have to make another. Wait a second it was a voodoo spell. The Queen is a zombie now!” And here is the thing, you can’t say no to the queen. If she wants to eat your brains, it’s her divine right as the head of state.”

    Kristin, “Guys, this is a serious podcast! No time for endless tagents. Go on Mark…”

    Mark, taking a deep breath. “Zellers is back! Across the country!”

    Kristin,”I heard rumors but I thought they were cruel lies!”

    Mark,”Its true! I will be the first in line on reopening day!”

    Kristin,”I am going to buy a new Zeddy stuffed bear. And I still have a few points on my old Club Z points card!”

    Mark, “You know with inflation, those points are probably worth millions now!”

    Kristin, “I’m filling my whole bedroom with Zeddy’s!”

    Mark,” Those A-holes at Target bought Zellers and almost killed Zeddy. But he was only hibernating! Now he can feast on Target’s rotting corpse!”

    Tony,”Hey Duncan don’t you sometimes feel like walking out that door and taking the first flight back to England?”

    Duncan, ” Yeah, no milk bag malarkey. But I don’t want to deal with the Zombie hordes at the London airport…”

    Phone rings and Mark answers, the shriek of a frustrated woman filled with rage can be heard.

    Mark,”I don’t know who’s wife this is but somebody is in big trouble!”
