TOTP - Top Ten Ways To Blow A Tenner

Shame on Jon, Kevin wrote this list and Jon took all the credit. Here are some great things you can do with a ten pound note that is burning a hole in your pocket:-

  • 10 - Buy 10 Big Issues and then stand near/opposite to the guy you bought them off offering them at a cheaper price.
  • 9 - Order an adult magazine/video/DVD of some obscure fetish from the internet and have it delivered to one of your friends.
  • 8 - Buy 2 tamagotchi and take them to an animal shelter saying you can’t properly care for your pets any longer.
  • 7 - Offer it as 1st prize at an impromptu diving contest at your nearest pool with Olympic height diving board.
  • 6 - Purchase as many cans/bottles of coca cola as possible and walk around your city centre giving them to people and hugging them just like the advert.
  • 5 - Paypal donation to www.topofthepods.com account.
  • 4 - Sign your best mate up to a gay dating agency - supply every contact detail.
  • 3 - Buy five pints and a packet of dry roasted peanuts down the working mans club and consume them all in 45 mins.
  • 2 - Pay a musical busker to do an hours set of the most irritating songs you can think of.
  • 1 - Buy 1000 White chocolate mice penny sweets at newsagents just to make the guy at the counter count them out. Pay for them in pennies for bonus points.

We'd also like to thank Mark B, Mike Kuhse, Jo Vile, Sean from Riverside, Grant from Leith, Tom the Truck driver, Richard, Alex from Warlingham, Mike from the 6620 West Kidcast and Molly. Also Linda who send us an email saying "I didn't bother to join in the 'what I would do with a tenner' contest, but no matter."

Also mentioned during the show was www.allofmp3.com (for music), www.karmabanque.com (for reasons why we shouldn't drink Coca Cola) and www.cybercandy.co.uk (for a great way to blow ten quid on sweets).

Good show, good list.

I thought I'd add my picture to my profile so you can see how ugly I am.

Grant - Three From Leith said...

Arrrrghhh !!! The horror ! The horror !

Actually, Bazza, you're pretty normal-looking (for a TOTP fan) ;-)

Only kidding. Now - ME on the other hand, that's a scary pic (can you see just how sunburned I was when the pic is scaled to this size ?)

John's right about the state abreviations. There are just too many towns with the same name. I live in Greensboro, NC, but there are also Greensboros in other states. Of course there are several different Washingtons, Lincolns, LaFayettes, etc. We just name our towns willy-nilly without checking to see if the name is already taken.

Richard said...

I agree with Jon... With the exception of larger cities. I’m from Dallas... I don’t say "Hi, I'm from Dallas Texas, howdy yall!" Shea... right!

At any rate... keep up the good stuff. Makes 15 - 25+ minutes pass buy quite quickly.

Willy-nilly. Great top unused phrase I haven't heard for years. Think I'll be using that in the future...

Thanks Bazza for posting your photo, there are all these names we try and remember, (some duplicates) and we get ever so confused. Having a photo certainly helps me put a name to the face.

Grant, sorry, you should think about respelling Leigh to Leaf as I keep slipping up and offending you all the time!

More audio comments anyone, the inbox is running dry!!! Just 1 minute of being yourself and saying hi.

Cheers everyone!

BTW, both of you need to have access to the "rambling" music...

Andy said...

Greetings from Des Moines, IA. Or as they say in England, "Des Moines."

Great show today, guys. I think we need to shoot for an hour long show. The more TOTP the better.

Molly said...

Sorry, guys. I would love to come be your personal fundraiser, but I simply cannot live in a place where you can't buy a round of drinks for the equivalent of $17.

Fantastic show!

So, do I now have to send a photo of my car too, lads??? I also have a bicycle... ;-)

TomTheTrucker said...

Excellent show lads. i think that Jons rambling and the funny things Rob does e.g below the TTT for blokes on the pull, explaing what "on the pull means" underneath.
Is it just me that has noticed how Robs swearing has increased, this company must have really p***** Rob off.

Well done Jon, your "disease" hasnt affected rembering my Truck.

You can't buy a big issue for a pound any more!
