Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell, Drop It Like It's Hot

Today's Transcript:

Scream is what you need to do if you want to go faster on the waltzer at a fairground. 'Fairground' is a horrible record by Simply Red that Zane Lowe chose as his secret love track on this show a fortnight ago. Go in the world of traffic lights is signified by the colour green, which is also the colour that you associate with grass and frogs. Frogs' legs are a delicacy in France. France is known for its food and culture. A culture of a different type is what you might find in a petri dish in a laboratory. The word 'laboratory' shares many of the same letters as 'labrador', which is a popular breed of dog. Dogs are used in Siberia to pull sleighs. 'Sleighs' rhymes with 'neighs', which is what you'd expect to hear coming out of a stable. If you remove the first letter of 'stables' you get 'tables', which are what you have to wait on in a restaurant. If you were a waiter and were handed a plate straight from the dishwasher you might drop it like it's hot, which links to Snoop Dogg and 'Drop It Like It's Hot'.

Flaws:

All good today.

Kasabian, Empire

Today's Transcript:

Hot is what you need your oven to be if you're baking a birthday cake. A birthday cake normally has icing on the top and a load of candles. Candles can be dangerous, and need to be handled with care. Care Bears were popular in the 90s, although the cartoon is still on the telly now. 'Now' rhymes with 'cow', which is a large animal that produces beef or milk, and cows that produce milk are called dairy cows. Cowes is the name of a place on the Isle of Wight, and there is a special Cowes Week dedicated to sailing every August. August is the eighth month of the year. The number 8 is regarded as being lucky by the Chinese. China now control Hong Kong, which reverted to them in 1997 after 99 years of it being part of the British empire, which links to Kasabian and 'Empire'.

Flaws:

Care Bears were launched in 1983 and so were more popular in the 80s, although Dave is correct that the TV show is still being made today.

Pink, God Is A DJ

Today's Transcript:

Kasabian are from Leicester, although Serge is of Italian descent. Descent is when a flight comes down from its cruising altitude. Altitude can make you sick because the air is much thinner. Thinner is what people tend to want to be if they're on a diet. 'Diet' is an anagram of 'tied', which is what a dog should be outside a shop. Shops are a good place to buy bread and milk and stuff on a Sunday morning. 'Sunday Morning' was a hit for Maroon 5 in 2004. 2004 was the year that the European Championships were won by Greece. Greece are after a loan of about £10 billion to sort themselves out. Out is where cats can go whenever they please if they've got a catflap. 'Catflap' is an anagram of 'flat cap', which is something they wear a lot of in Yorkshire. Yorkshire is somewhere where they grow a lot of rhubarb, which is predominantly pink, which links to Pink and 'God Is A DJ'.

The Streets, Dry Your Eyes

Today's Transcript:

Pink has recently had a baby, which means she's a mummy. The Americans spell 'mom' with an 'O' rather than a 'U', which is a good example of them spelling stuff wrong, a bit like 'colour' and 'aluminium'. Aluminium is a good metal to make cars out of, as it's light, strong and doesn't rust, which is why it's also used to make window frames. Windows are something you associate with Carig Doyle, who used to present 'Holiday'. A holiday is something that people look forward to, especially when there's a chance of lying on a beach. 'The Beach' is a film that was set and filmed in Thailand. Thailand tends to suffer from political instability and is never that far away from a military coup. 'Coo' is a noise that you'd associate with pigeons, which are basically just flying vermin. Vermin can get into your home from surrounding fields and open spaces and even from the streets, which links to The Streets and 'Dry Your Eyes'.

Flaws:

Aluminium was in fact originally named 'aluminum' (by British chemist Humphrey Davy), so the Americans actually spell it correctly. The English spelling was adopted to bring it in line with other elements (such as potassium and sodium).

Kings of Leon, Molly's Chambers

Today's Transcript:

Dry your eyes is what you have to do if you've been crying or chopping onions. Onions can be either red or white, a bit like grapes. Grapes are a common gift to take when visiting somebody in hospital. Hospitals are full of doctors, nurses and patients. 'Patience' was a big hit for Take That in 2006, and was their first release in ten years. Ten years is known as a decade, and ten decades together is known as a century. A century shouldn't be mistaken for a sentry, who is a guard or soldier type person who guards an entry or passage. If you swap the first letter of 'passage' for an 'M' you get 'massage', which some people like to get if they're stressed or tense. Tents are what people camp in at Glastonbury. Glastonbury this year features many bands such as Folkface and Beyonce, but one band who aren't playing this year are the Kings of Leon, which links to Kings of Leon and 'Molly's Chambers'.

U2, Where The Streets Have No Name

Today's Transcript:

The Kings of Leon played a huge gig last night in Hyde Park, which is in London. London is where Prince William and Kate Middleton recently got married. Married is what you are if you're husband and wife, like Richard and Judy. Richard and Judy used to host 'This Morning', which was filmed at Liverpool's Albert Dock. 'Dock' rhymes with 'knock', which is what you have to do on a door if a bell isn't working. Working is what you want to be if you're seeking employment. 'Employment' was the title of the debut album by Kaiser Chiefs, who last night did a session for Zane Lowe. Low is the opposite of high, and high is where you'd be if you're in a position of elevation. 'Elevation' was a hit for U2, who are headlining Glastonbury tomorrow night. Glastonbury has a lot of throroughfares you can use to get around, which are like streets but they don't have street names, which links to U2 and 'Where The Streets Have No Name'.

Flaws:

'This Morning' moved location to London's South Bank halfway through Richard and Judy's stint as presenters of the show, but it did start out at Albert Dock, so technically all fine.

Groove Armada, Superstylin'

Today's Transcript:

U2 were one of the headline acts at Glastonbury this weekend, and played on the Friday. 'Friday I'm In Love' was a big hit for The Cure. Cure is a word associated with both medicine and bacon. Bacon, first name Kevin, is an American actor who starred in 'Footloose' and 'Sleepers'. Sleepers are what you find on a railway line, and they're the heavy concrete bits that the rails sit on. Sit on is what you're meant to do with a chair. 'Chair' rhymes with 'bear', which is a large animal that likes to eat fresh salmon. Salmon, first name Zoe, is a TV presenter from Northern Ireland who used to be on 'Blue Peter', which is the longest-running childrens' TV programme ever. If you add an 'F' to the beginning of 'ever' you get 'fever', which is something you don't want to get while you're on holiday somewhere like Africa or Spain. The Spanish word for 'naval fleet' is 'armada', which links to Groove Armada and 'Superstylin''.

Flaws:

S Club 7, Reach

Today's Transcript:

Groove Armada are one of the few acts to feature a trombone. A trombone is a brass instrument with a slide. 'Slide Away' is a song by Oasis from their album 'Definitely Maybe'. 'Maybe' rhymes with 'baby', which is what you deliver if you're a midwife. A midwife will often work in a hospital, but also comes to people's homes. 'Homes Under The Hammer' is a daytime show where properties are sold at auction. An auction is somewhere where there is someone who talks really fast, and they are called an auctioneer. An auctioneer shares much in common with a horse racing commentator. Horse racing is somewhere that links Windsor and York. York to Leeds in miles is approximately 21. 21 divided by 3 is 7, and 7 was the number of members in S Club 7, which links to S Club 7 and 'Reach'.

Flaws:

Apparently the distance between Leeds and York is 21.9 miles, so Dave was only slightly off on this one.

Jet, Are You Gonna Be My Girl

Today's Transcript:

Reach is what you'd have to do a lot of if you were Ronnie Corbett trying to press the top floor button in a lift. A lift in America is called an elevator, in the same way that the boot of your car is called a trunk. A trunk of a different type is what an elephant uses to suck up peanuts. Peanuts was the name of a character in 'Charlie Brown'. Charlie Brown has the same first name as Charlie Brooker, who's married to Konnie Huq, who I think looks a bit like MIA. M.I.A. stands for 'missing in action', as opposed to missing in Acton, which would mean you were lost in a suburb of west London. London does financial trading with New York and Tokyo. Tokyo is the capital of Japan, where they eat a lot of noodles and raw fish. Fish are a good source of amino acids, which are good for your health, as is sunlight and good weather. Somewhere where they have an abundance of sunshine is Australia, which is where the band Jet are from, which links to Jet and 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl'.

Flaws:

M.I.A. actually has said that her initials do stand for Missing In Acton. Additionally, does she look like Konnie Huq? I'm not really seeing it, but judge for yourselves:

Robbie Williams, Come Undone

Today's Transcript:

A jet is a type of engine used on an aeroplane, and is a more modern version of the propellor engine, which is what they used in the olden days. Daze of a different type is what you might be in if you'd just been punched by Lennox Lewis. Lennox Lewis represented the UK even though he was kind of Canadian, a bit like Greg Ruzedski, who, like myself, showcased his ice-skating talents on national telly. 'Telly' rhymes with 'welly', which is what you would have needed on each foot if you were at Glastonbury last weekend. 'Weekend' is a term that refers to Saturday and Sunday. A sundae is what you might eat as pudding. 'Pudding club' is a term that refers to pregnancy amongst women. 'Women' rhymes with 'swimmin'', which is something that Sharron Davies is good at. Sharron Davies used to present 'The Big Breakfast', and in that respect shares something in common with Kelly Brook. Kelly Brook shares one name in common with Kelly Jones, who went to see Take That on their last tour. Someone who wasn't on Take That's last tour but is on this one is Robbie Williams, which links to Robbie Williams and 'Come Undone'.

Flaws:

'Pudding club' refers to pregnancy amongst women...as opposed to whom?...

Outkast, Hey Ya

Today's Transcript:

Come undone is what you hope doesn't happen to the zip on your dress or trousers. Trousers come in pairs, even though there's really only one of them, which can be confusing. Other things which can be confusing include long division and road signs in Japan. Japan is nicknamed the Land of the Rising Sun. Sunrise times differ on a daily basis as does the time the sun sets, and now that we've had the longest day of the year the days are getting shorter, and winter is on its way. Weigh is what you need to do with your fruit in the supermarket by placing it on the scale. Scales, first name John, used to play football for Liverpool and Spurs. Spurs used to have Lord Sugar as their chairman. Lord Sugar presides over the contestants in 'The Apprentice' who all strive to be the one he chooses in the end, and if they fires them they have to leave like an outcast, which links to Outkast and 'Hey Ya'.

Flaws:

Many supermarkets don't require you to weight produce on a scale anymore, instead the tills automatically weigh and price it as the checkout operator passes it through. But otherwise seamless.

Razorlight, The Golden Touch

Today's Transcript:

Outkast are from Atlanta, Georgia, which is a major transport hub serving much of the USA. The USA has Barack Obama as its President. The President lives in the White House in Washington DC. 'DC' are the initials of David Coulthard, who does the BBC's F1 coverage alongside Jake Humphrey, who you will all know from the competition we ran yesterday. Yesterday was Monday, which means tomorrow must be Wednesday, which is halfway through the week. 'Week' rhymes with 'beak', which is what a bird uses to eat with. If you add an 'S' to the front of 'eat' you get 'seat', which is what you sit on whilst cycling. The best cyclists in the world take part in the Tour de France. 'Tour de France' was a hit for Kraftwerk, who weren't from France but Germany. Germany is where we went for the World Cup in 2006, when we had live music from Razorlight, which links to Razorlight and 'The Golden Touch'.

Spiller, Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)

Today's Transcript:

Touch is one of your five main senses, along with taste, smell, sight and hearing. If you add an 'S' to the front of 'hearing' you get 'shearing', which is what you have to do to a sheep in order to get wool. Wool is a good material from which to make hats, gloves or cardigans. 'Cardigan' in Welsh is 'Ceredigion', which is also the name of a county in Wales where Aled is from. Aled shares an anagram first name with Dale Winton, who is synonymous with 'Supermarket Sweep' and the National Lottery. 'Lottery' rhymes with 'pottery', which is what they were making during that famous scene from the film 'Ghost', which has now been made into a musical starring Richard Fleishman, whose mum was Jackie Corkhill in 'Brookside', which starred the likes of Ricky Tomlinson and Ray Quinn. Ray Quinn was the runner-up on 'The X-Factor' in 2006 and was kept off the top spot by Leona Lewis. Leona Lewis will be performing at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend next year, which is set to be possibly bigger than the Olympics. The olympics were held in Sydney in 2000. 2000 was also the year when Spiller had a number 1 hit, which links to Spiller and 'Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)'.


Flaws:

Aled took issue with Dave's Welsh facts today. Apparently, the Welsh for 'cardigan' as in the item of clothing is the same as the English, just pronounced slightly differently; Ceredigion meanwhile is not a county. There is a town called Cardigan, but the Welsh name for that is Aberteifi. Dave argued that because 'cardigan' and 'Ceredigion' share a lot of the same letters they must mean the same thing, but Aled pronounced him wrong. There was also a problem with the "five main senses" that Dave named - they're just the five senses, there are no more. He may have been thinking of the so-called 'sixth sense', aka intuition, but that's merely apocryphal.

Foo Fighters, Breakout

Today's Transcript:

'Groovejet' features the vocals of Sophie Ellis Bextor, whose mum Janet used to present 'Blue Peter', which has also been presented by Richard Bacon and Zoe Salmon. Bacon and salmon are two things you might see on a posh breakfast menu. A menu is something that would normally be printed on either paper or card, which are both good for recycling. Cycling is a sport you'd associate with Mark Cavendish and Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong used to be married to, or with, but not anymore I don't think, Sheryl Crow. Sheryl Crow shouldn't be mistaken for Cheryl Cole, who according to the papers might be trying to get back with Ashley. Ashley Cole plays leftback for England and Chelsea. Chelsea Clinton is the daughter of Hillary, who recently ran for office against Barack Obama, and Bill, who used to be the President of America. America is where the Foo Fighters are from, which links to Foo Fighters and 'Breakout'.

Flaws:

Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong weren't married; they announced their engagement in September 2005, but split in February 2006. Additionally, Hillary Clinton didn't run for the Presidency against Obama, she ran against him for the candidacy, but on the same side (Democrat).

Jane's Addiction, Just Because

Today's Transcript:

Breakout is what you might be trying to do if you're locked up in prison. In prison the inmates sleep in cells. Cells of a different type are what American people call mobile phones. 'Phones' rhymes with 'Jones', which is a popular surname in Wales. Wales consists of lots of mountains and valleys. Many of the valleys in the UK were caused by glaciation, which took place during the Ice Age, when woolly mammoths roamed about looking like massive hairy elephants. Elephants have a fantastic memory and never forget. 'Never Forget' is a song by Take That, who have just finished a run of gigs at Wembley Stadium, which is best reached by public transport as the traffic can be a nightmare. Nobody really understands nightmares, and if you were to ask your doctor why you have them he'd say "just because", which links to Jane's Addiction and 'Just Because'.

Flaws:

Dave pronounced the link seamless, but in fact there are several well-known causes of nightmares such as sleeping in an uncomfortable or awkward position, having a fever, or psychological causes such as stress and anxiety. Interestingly, last time Dave chose this track he reached it by pronouncing another medical condition unexplained - that time fainting - which again, has well-known and understood causes. Maybe next time he chooses this record he should find another way in!

House Of Pain, Jump Around

Today's Transcript:

Jane's Addiction have Dave Navarro on lead guitar, who's played with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and was married to Carmen Electra. carmen Electra starred in 'Starsky & Hutch' alongside Owen Wilson. Owen Wilson shares one name in common with actor Sid Owen, who's best known for playing 'Eastenders'' Ricky Butcher. A butcher's shop is a good place to buy stuff like steaks and sausages. Sausages go well with mash, chips and gravy. 'Gravy' rhymes with 'navy', which is the branch of the Armed Forces that involves boats and seamen. Seaman, first name David, used to play for QPR and of course England. England are currently managed by Fabio Cappello, who's from Italy. Italy play Ireland in the Six Nations rugby. Ireland is where the ancestors of American hip-hop group House of Pain are from , which links to House Of Pain and 'Jump Around'.

Jamiroquai, Little L

Today's Transcript:

Jump around is what rabbits do when they're not eating carrots or sleeping. Sleeping is crucial for health, because everybody needs rest to prevent exhaustion. Exhaustion is what often causes pop stars to cancel concerts when they're out on the road. 'Road' rhymes with 'toad', which is basically just a big frog. Frogs tend to be green and like to sit on a lily pond. If you swap the first letter of 'pond' for a 'B' you get 'Bond', which is the surname that links former Royal correspondent Jennie with Secret Agent James. James were a band from Manchester whose hits include 'Laid' and 'Sit Down'. Sit down is what you'd be asked to do by a stewardess if you tried to get your luggage out of the overhead locker before the aircraft had come to a complete stop at the terminal building. Building is what the Victorians were good at, in the same way that the Egyptians were good builders, as they built the pyramids at Geyser. 'Geezer' is a male term of endearment in London. The word 'London' should be spelt with a capital rather than a little 'L', which links to Jamiroquai and 'Little L'.

Flaws:

Frogs are not all green, and in fact some species have the ability to change colour!

Keane, Is It Any Wonder

Today's Transcript:

Jay Kay is a massive fan of cars, bikes and anything with an engine. If the engine of a car blows up, you're going nowhere. 'Going Nowhere' was a hit in 1993 for Gabrielle, whose trademark look involved an eyepatch that made her look a bit like a pirate. Pirate radio refers to radio stations that broadcast illegally without a licence. A licence of a different type proves that you have passed your test and are fit to drive. A drive of a different type is a shot in golf. Golf is something that Ant and Dec like to play while they're not filming one of their many TV shows. Shows are what Andrew Lloyd Webber likes to put on in the theatre, in places like London and New York. New York is known as the Big Apple. An apple is something you should wash before you eat it to make sure it's clean. If you lose the 'L' in 'clean' and replace the 'C' with a 'K' you get Keane, which links to Keane and 'Is It Any Wonder'.

Flaws:

Removing the 'L' in 'clean' and replacing the 'C' with a 'K' makes 'Kean', not 'Keane'. Additionally, Andrew Lloyd Webber composes and writes shows, he doesn't put them on - but that's a technicality.

Sum 41, Fat Lip

Today's Transcript:

Keane, first name Roy, is a footballer who used to play for Nottingham Forest. A forest may well be home to monkeys, depending on where you are in the world. 'The World Is Not Enough' is a James Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan as 007. 'Seven' is a different film which involved a head in a box. A box of chocolates is a nice thing to give to someone special. 'Something Special' is a programme featuring Mr Tumble. A tumble dryer is what you might need to put your clothes in if they're all wet from the washing machine. A washing machine is something you wouldn't want to try to carry if you had a bad back. 'Back For Good' is a song by Take That, who had to cancel a gig on Saturday night as a result of Robbie Williams going down with food poisoning. Food poisoning isn't a nice thing to happen, a bit like being bitten by a dog or stung by a wasp. If you were stung by a wasp on the mouth it might result in a fat lip, which links to Sum 41 and 'Fat Lip'.

Mousse T featuring Emma Lanford, Is It Cos I'm Cool?

Today's Transcript:

Sum 41 lead singer Deryck Whibley used to be married to Avril Lavigne, who had her first hits in 2002. 2002 was the year that the World Cup was held in Japan and South Korea. South Korea have never really got on with North Korea, where they tend to be Communist. 'Communist' shouldn't be mistaken for 'economist', who is someone who analyses monetary issues. If you add a 'T' to the front of 'issues' you get 'tissues', which is what you need a lot of if you're suffering from a cold. Cold weather is something you associate with the North and South Poles, which are both very difficult to get to, more difficult than mid-Wales. If you swap the first letter of 'Wales' for an 'S' you get 'sales', which are what people queue up for on Boxing Day. Boxing Day is the day after Christmas Day, when people sit around all day eating turkey and watching telly. 'Telly' rhymes with 'jelly', which is something you might have for pudding, as is mousse, which links to Mousse T and 'Is It Cos I'm Cool?'.

Travis, Tied To The 90s

Today's Transcript:

Mousse T's other hits include 'Horny'. 'Horny' rhymes with 'corny', which is how the Americans might describe a joke that was obvious and not very good, which we might describe as cheesy. Cheesy is how you might describe feet that had got sweaty in a pair of hot socks. If you swap the first letter of 'socks' for an 'L' you get 'locks', which is what you'd find on a canal in order for boats to climb or descend areas of different height. Height is a key measurement if you wish to become a supermodel. One of the most famous supermodels is Kate Moss, who knows everyone in fashion. Fashion design is the area of expertise of Stella McCartney, who's the daughter of Sir Paul from The Beatles. The Beatles were a major influence on Noel Gallagher, who used to be half of Oasis until they split to go solo and form Beady Eye respectively. Beady Eye recently played at T In The Park, which is held in Scotland. Scotland is where Travis are from, which links to Travis and 'Tied To The 90s'.

J-Kwon, Tipsy

Today's Transcript:

Travis are fronted by Fran Healey, who lives in Berlin. Berlin is famous for the Wall which came down in 1989, which I think had something to do with David Hasselhoff, who used to be in 'Knight Rider'. Knight Rider shares the same surname as Shaun Ryder, who's the former frontman of Black Grape. Black grapes make sultanas and white grapes make raisins I think, unless I've got that the wrong way round. 'Wrong way round' rhymes with 'Long Way Round', which was a TV series in which Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman travelled on motorbikes from West to East. East 17 were formed in the 1990s, which also saw the emergence of the Teletubbies, including Dipsy. If you swap the first letter of 'Dipsy' for a 'T' you get 'tipsy', which links to J-Kwon and 'Tipsy'.

Flaws:

A few issues today. Firstly, David Hasselhoff had nothing to do with the fall of the Berlin Wall, he just stood on the partly-demolished wall and sang 'Looking for Freedom' a month after it fell. Secondly, Knight Rider and Shaun Ryder don't really share the same surname - not only because of the spelling, but also because Knight Rider was not a person's name at all, it was just the name of the show (the Hasselhoff character was called Michael Knight). And lastly, Dave did have his grapes the wrong way round; raisins are dark grapes, sultanas white.

Limp Bizkit, Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)

Today's Transcript:

Tipsy is how you might have felt this weekend if you'd had a couple of drinks in the sun. Sun is something you need to be careful of, and always slap on the cream before you get your body in the rays. Raise of a different type is something you might want to do to a sunken shipwreck to find out more about its history. History is something I wasn't very good at because I wasn't really interested in it. You have to be in it to win it if you want to take home a prize. Prise is what the fire brigade would have to do to lift doors if they'd accidentally closed on you and you'd become trapped. 'Trapped' was a hit for Colenel Abrams. A kernel is the inner part of a nut. Nuts can be a major hazard for those who suffer from an allergy. Ali G was a character created by Sacha Baron Cohen, who's had success in the USA. The USA is where Limp Bizkit are from, which links to Limp Bizkit and 'Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)'.

Flaws:

Problem-free.

Today's Tedious Link:

N-Trance, Set You Free

Today's Transcript:

Limp Bizkit are fronted by Fred Durst, who's got lots of tattoos, a bit like Tommy Lee from Motley Crue. Motley Crue singer Vince Neil recently appeared on 'Skating With The Stars', which was hosted by Vernon Kay. Vernon Kay shares the same surname as Peter Kay, although they're not brothers and don't even look alike. If you swap the 'K in 'alike' for a 'V' you get 'alive', which was a track by Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam were part of the grunge movement that originated in Seattle. Seattle is passionate about coffee, which is made from coffee beans that grow in hot places like Colombia. Colombia is in South America and is somewhere that has a lot of crime. 'Crime' rhymes with 'grime', which would repulse Kim & Aggie. Kim from Kim & Aggie appeared on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here'. If you wanted someone to get you out you'd probably say "set me free", which links to N-Trance and 'Set Me Free'.

Flaws:

Dave managed to get the name of his track wrong - it's 'Set You Free', not 'Me'. He's made the same mistake when linking to this track before! As it's one of his favourite link choices, you'd think he'd remember the name of it...

Today's Tedious Link:

The Fratellis, Henrietta

Today's Transcript:

Set free is what you'd do to a recovered kestrel who had been taken into care and nursed after suffering a broken wing. 'Broken Wings' was a hit for Mr Mister, who just repeated the same word to form their name, a bit like Wet Wet Wet. Wet Wet Wet were fronted by Marti Pellow. The word 'Pellow' shouldn't be mistaken for 'pilau', which is a type of rice. You need to be careful how you store cooked rice, as it can be an easy way of spreading bugs that will make you ill. Illness is what Tina recently had, which kept her off work for two days. Two days is the amount of time in a weekend, and those days are Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is the busiest day of the week if you're a hairdresser. Hairdressers like to find out about your holiday plans. If you went on holiday to Glasgow you might bump into The Fratellis, which links to The Fratellis and 'Henrietta'.

Flaws:

Watertight.
