In this episode of The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers, they get lost in the forest and find a lovely little house with three steaming bowls of porridge on the table…
Trivia: Daddy Bear (who I voiced) was inspired by deceased cockney comedian Mike Reid and had a much lower, thicker accent. He originally said “We just needed an ‘oliday” but this was considered confusing for a non-UK audience. He also originally said “Ow, me bonce!” when he hit his head on the bus roof, but this was changed because the studio in Canada thought he was saying “Ow, me balls!”

I don’t pretend to know what the person who wrote this was on about. Something about oil drums and theft. The tone veers from bitterness to outrage to manic triumph. Maybe that empty can of Orange Tango has something to do with it. Maybe the can wrote the sign and then jumped under a car.

Two methods of surreptitious swearing:
1. Say the word “Arse’ole”, very loudly, then turn it into the beginning of the well-known song “O sole mio“. This is not strictly correct, as the words “O sole mio” aren’t sung to the actual “Just One Cornetto” part of the song. Also it works better if your accent is one which pronounces the word arse with the long a and the non-rhotic r, rather than the common North American pronunciation “asshole”.
2. Tell someone to shut the far cupboard. This works better if the person has previously opened a cupboard and neglected to shut it.
