Stew says Slayer are bigger than the Rolling Stones and Larry suggests that, somewhere in the world, Mick Jagger has just fallen off his wallet because he’s laughing so hard. Stew reveals that he’s mapped out his drinking days clear through to the Meredith music festival, and Leapster suggests they wouldn’t be that much of a challenge to map, because it’s probably every day. Tiring of lists in various media of all-time greats and bests in various fields, Stew and Larry present their inaugural induction ceremony of the Hall of the Occasional Adequate. Plus Stew pantomimes unsuccessfully on air, sets the new world nose-picking record, and petitions Australian Football League chief executive Andrew Demetriou for a free set of acrylic teeth.


CLASSIFICATION WARNING – May contain casual swearing, extremely casual thinking, and semi-formal groin and toilet references. Also if you’re revolted by nose-picking, you might want to sit this one out.
