8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown

Have you ever counted from 0 all the way to 30? Yes? Have you ever tried to figure out what words might be on a wall out of letters? Wow!! You have? Have you ever blended 2 TV shows together to make one slightly better TV show? HOLY CRAP!! You must have been a part of 8 out of 10 cats does Coundown too! What were you? The consonants? Or all the big numbers? We were the beatboxers...

 

They even hid the word "Duke" in the letters to make us feel at home... We didn't though... Ed lives in a bungalow... It's totally different to a studio.

Marko and Ed received a phone call ... "The red phone is flashing" ... Ed said ... "Let me scoop that up" said Marko... Tenaciously ... 

"Turns out Jimmy Carr hates the countdown music but thinks you two idiots are the sickness... Come and make it better with your beats!!" Said the voice on the end of the phone...

 

"will you pay us handsomely?" 

 

"we'll pay you... Barely" 

 

"WE'LL DO IT" the boys said... And so they did  

 

Cryptic clues... Where could they be?

Jimmy Carr was a true gent... A stand up chap... A real all round lover boy with the musk of a classy doctor... We watched him rehearse and he commented on our trainers... He appreciated them... And apparently the works of Ice Cube too...

We snuck around... Cocking our legs and spraying our scent as we went! The whole studio hummed of beats!!

At the end of the day we learnt the following:  

When you watch TV you think it's one thing but when you get to climb inside the TV and be what's on it, its very similar only you can see it from like... a different angle. It's almost exactly the same, but it isn't. So think about that seriously before you apply for "the price is right" or "family fortunes" .... 

 

2 slippery nipples and a bag of frazzles... Pronto!
