TOTP - Top Ten Women Who Should Have Been Born Male

Diane complained that we never do any shows for women, but this show is going to prove her wrong. We asked you all to email topofthepods@gmail.com with your lists, and Gordon from Glasgow sent us his list of women who are a total waste of space. We are inclined to agree with him, fill up that comments page found at www.topofthepods.com with your thoughts and suggestions on the subject:-

  • 10 - Paris Hilton
  • 9 - Mary Phelps Jacob
  • 8 - Avril Lavigne
  • 7 - Lily Savage
  • 6 - Jordan
  • 5 - Anne Robinson
  • 4 - Rhona Martin
  • 3 - Jennifer Lopez
  • 2 - Jade Goody
  • 1 - Maggie Thatcher

Weyhey! My list got read out.

Methinks Diane isn't going to be very happy with me...

Top Of The Pods said...

Crikey Gordon - that was quick! Thanks for the list, hope you enjoyed our interpretation.

We've upped the bitrate quality on the MP3 to 96kbs rather than 64kbs - whats everyones thoughts on this? Happy? Better quality? Too big?

Another good show, but I'm not sure it's "for" the ladies.

Gentlemen... you should be glad that Mary Phelps Jacob came up with her invention. When gravity takes over and they hang down to a woman's knees, it's not a pretty sight. (Sorry, Rob, I know you like to think of women in an idealistic sort of way, but that's just reality.)

PH or I will skype you anytime.. but you're always "away".

And Jon... saying that girls are stupid? I bet you don't say that at home, where you are surrounded by women. Ask PH: since our son has gone off to university, he's swimming alone in the estrogen sea (oestrogen over there, I believe?)

I'd reckon that most people who frequently download podcasts have a fairly fast connection, so the higher quality audio would be a boon at 96kbs. I'm certainly all for a higher bitrate!

PH said...

Dang! Bloody good show. You dudes are bleedin' awesome :-).
(Mixin' my heritage with my situation there a bit).

Gurning champion!

You made me laugh out loud (very embarrassing)

Bazza said...

Another good show.

I have to disagree with Avril Lavigne being on there though, she's not 17, she's 21 at the end of this month and I thinks she's gorgeous. I also like her music.

Dick Diggler said...

http://topofthepods.mx5.org.uk/shows there is an easter egg in that there folder. Loved it. Thanks Toni, Thanks Dons. Look forward to hearing from you again.

Rowley said...

Mmm, Xena.....
Fatima Whitbread should have been in the list.
Avril Lavigne did "Fuel", taken from the "Load" album..

Rowley said...

Oh yeah, Paul O'Grady played Lilly Savage.

Hey Toni and dons!

Molly from Omaha (USA) said...

Wow - thanks to "Dick Diggler" for finding that easter egg! I almost died laughing. Those accents... Priceless!

PH said...

Anyone else have extreme difficulty getting PodcastAlley to actually load?
It's always been slow to pop up, now it won't even load at all. I think they need more server power?

PH said...

Listening to some classic 'Sammy Davis Jr.' right now. In lieu of another TOTP (9:24pm eastern).
"Raydio" LP by Raydio, 1978...funky.
You guys deserve a break. Looking forward to the next TOTP. Cheers!

I've been a big fan of Tony since his early days on Broadway. He was excellent in "Cats".

And who can forget Dons' guest appearances on "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island". Classics.

diane s said...

Hmmmmm...OK, I haven't listened yet, but something tells me i might keep my constructive comments to myself in future...?!

Ideas for future lists:
black people who should have been white
gay people who should have been straight


A matter of time... ;-) xx

diane s said...

I have to say, today's show really made me laugh! (Despite its sexist premise Gordon)...Trying to imagine Jordan as a man- can't be done!

I couldn't get into Podcast Alley at all recently; however, last time I tried, after about three failed attempts, I got a little graphic and message saying that they're upgrading their servers at the moment. Perhaps they're still trying to do that ?!

bryan in greece said...

I've had the same problem with Podcast Alley a number of times - maybe it's all those goddang good ole boy American podcast listeners voting for Hank and Eugene over there at Podcast Alley? Or maybe their servers are just down for servicing... Another of life's mysteries...

usbrit said...

Did you say curling or gurning?? http://www.truebrits.tv/gurning.html

Bazza said...

I remember the show that mentioned using your itrip to transmit on other car radios, so I thought I'd try it at work.

The assembly department usually plays radio 2, so armed with my ipod and itrip and I tuned it into radio 2's frequency and blasted out some banging hardcore tunes.

It was pretty funny, they didn't what was happening. LOL

Grant - Three From Leith said...

Bazza, you young scallywag !!

That would have been something to behold - I'm laughing at the very thought of it now !

You're not related to a certain other Bazza (aka Barry Falselager) who frequents the BJH fan list, are you ? He'd do that kind of thing too...

neroribena said...

i must say i do appreciate the 96kbs and its not that much of a problem size wise (IMHO).

oh and i don't think you have to worry too much about the sex bias of the show as i was thinking it would be stranger if you started commenting on top ten mens bums :P just maybe some more dual-gender topics, like more than once a week... hehehe.

chrissie ;o)

sam smith said...

no shows for 2 days?

Bazza said...

No relation grant.
