You should have just posted a pic of Maude rather than explaining it. Or a pic of Kyle's mom from South Park works equally well.

From what I remember it was Helen Lovejoy who always used to screech "Will somebody pleeeeeese think of the Children" in The Simpsons, I hated her character in all honesty, at least Maude Flanders had a purpose.

Yeah, you're right, my apologies. And they killed off poor Maude, whereas Helen is still around!

Aled, how bigger * up was the Hackney tickets site not working? Did Radio 1 underestimate the interest? Or was it all down the See Tickets? I didn't apply as I can't make that date but I'd be furious if I had and then couldn't get tickets because the site didn't work

I understand this isn't your department at all and nothing to do with you so you may not be able to answer.

However, I'd expect some unreasonably angry texts tomorrow as a few people I know aren't happy

Its come to a pretty pass when you get a right c**ting from the prissy bedwetters on Digital Spy for being too PC. :lol:

Yup.

But obviously there'll be a lot of people with an opinion about this!

No, not this time. We have a replacement for Dave next week and the week we're back we've got Revision again.

You don't really expect Aled to reveal something like that on a public forum, do you?
