impulsereader: (Book Art 1)
I'm hopeless, I really am. I'm trying to watch this neat game-ish-sortof radio show which John Finnemore was on (and on which he showed himself to be both very clever and up on events) but one of the other contestants was named Arthur ... let's just say I'm embarrassed about how long it took me to catch on to my brain's disconnect ... Why wasn't Arthur's voice responding to those inquiries?

I believe you should be able to access the episode in question via this link for a while yet. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01ptgg2/The_Unbelievable_Truth_Series_10_Episode_3/

ETA - it really is so terribly odd to hear JF being all intelligent and earnest whilst another voice is being called Arthur. Kudos to his understanding of the mechanics of comedy. He unfailingly identified his opponents' strategies of taking a funny true fact and building upon it to disguise the truth. Taking the time to dissect the frog of comedy has served him very well.
