Ep. 6 - Boycycles, Bans and Bell Ringing

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Welcome to episode 6 of the fiasco that is The 33% Majority.

In this week’s episode, your 3 ‘handsome’ boys (Alex, Ash and Tom), will each spend their 15 minutes of fame discussing why motorcycles and men shouldn’t be fused together, the limitations of cancel culture (we know, bold stance), and how to make sense of paranormal/extraterrestrial activity (respectively).

This podcast could be boiled down to the sentence, and then Ashley said the thing about testicles. Hello everyone, and welcome to the thank three percent majority. This is a talk show where you'll find three friends, each fighting for their fifteen minutes of fame. I'm your host, resident tired morning boy, Tom Hutchinson, I am your actual host, resident glass eater, Ashley Hall, and I'm actually the real host, Alex Springthorpe. How we doing, then, today, guys, you both seem tired, sad and tired. I'm not tired, but my vote, my voice is a bit Croky. This is a a thirty three percent. First, this is a nine am recording. Yeah, can I just get a vibe check? Are we happy with recording in the morning? Can we just stop now? I love a vibe check. This is this is good vibes. Good Morning Vibes. It's recording day. It's early. I've got a cup of tea. Like t we you seem to be struggling the most with it. HMM, yeah, I'm flagging. I'm flagging hard. Well, to perk you up, why didn't we spend a moment just to celebrate five hundred listeners in our first month? Of podcasting. Five hundred human beings. WHOHOO, five hundred people pressed play and listen to upwards of six two seconds of us doing this and that. It's I think it's brilliant. Honestly, it's quite crazy. Signs more than a minute of me unbearable. So listeners, so proud of you. I meet you most of the time on this podcasts. So very well done to the listeners. Tom has his has his phone set to meet my segment every year. What's that? What's that? As your phones set up four minutes to get it's too early for the that was that made me seem real sharp. Homei is seeing just got got, Ashley. If you look to you, if you look behind you, there's a camera there, there's a camera to your left. You've just been pranked by the prank patrol. You just got friggin prank patrolled. They had, and they have Ninjas on that didn't have prankness. They did and we have them on this show. Actually, they've stolen all of your worldly possessions. The honorable history of the Ninja used for a children's TV program love that. The Ninja's of the night of stolen all of your hdmi cables. Now what? I can't believe. What's your God, watch everything. It's time for VGA, cables and sadness and heeds. Right, I'M gonna kick off this week, then, chaps, if that's all right with you. Actually, I don't care because I'm the host. My my segment comes with an element of risk. Okay, we are we feeling adventurous? My toothrill seeking friends, I'm always adventurous. Adventures my middle name. So we, we, you record this show on discord. That's how we chitter and chatter. So I'm going to just load up the old screen sharing function here. Hmm, can you see what I see? Oh my gosh that hold on, because I'm not looking. Hang on, Oh my God, so many technical issues piled a good cree some flowers. So I found Tommy. Are you? Are you live and in session? So many technical issues, they're my God. Okay, I'M gonna have to move my cell sorry, guys, I'm gonna have to just shuffle about a lumber. I'm I'm going like full handheld Mike Right now, dear, like being interviewed by yourself. That's wonderful. Actually, you know what I feel like I might do this permanently. I just I apologize to Alex for future Alex Orry, should I say for editing time, because this will probably be clickity clackitty. You sounded all right currently, so will we'll have to...

...see. This is a a music video that I found. Okay, the hearkens back to something you proposed, Tommy in episode two. God, that's it, doll guy. Think. Is it get? Is it goofy having sex with Pluto? Because I can't watch this very, very nearly. But what I need you guys to do, with this being an audio medium, is I'm going to press play on this and you guys have got to describe in excruciating detail what exactly we're looking at. So kick us off. What are we looking at? With the very first frame of this video, it's it's a beautiful little daisy in some dirt. Excellent. It's a little daisy boy just hanging out in quite a sunny day. I would say. It's quite a close little match ray shot of these three daisies. I'm just hanging out. Are we ready, if a, for me to press play? I'm scared. Is it weird that I'm more frightened now than I have been before anything else in my life. May you bloody should be right pressing play now. Daisy wiggling, Salvatoga, natchee, sweet name, Nice boots, dying, bosting will preak housers right to the right. Yeah, Brown trousers, socks rolled above trousers. Boy Boy, cycle boy, cycle boy, sort of rifle. He's an old man's got a gun. Somebody's Dad. Pausing. I'm pausing here. What's happened? What what we looked at? Start far, sideburns. Guys got sideburns. He sideburns. They're pretty good sideburns. So a man has walked into frame wearing boots, he's got a rifle slung over his shoulder. He's seen a pile of rubbish, trash and Garbo and there's a dead Bodie and there was a handst and also, okay, just in terms of like scenery, there's some like rocky cliffs, some shrubbery, so this might be the out bast kind of got breaking bad coat. Yet could be MECHICO. So okay, I'm going to press play again. Okay, he's running, he's dragging the body. A nice man is probably a pulling trash out of the pile like really angry and he's worried the bloke. Oh God, Oh God, so that just going to skip back to that freeze frame. So we didn't. What are we looking at here, listener, is a specifically zero minutes and twenty eight seconds. A man is a motorcycle, a man. It's like a Centaur, but instead of a horse it's a motorbike. Yes, yeah, and yeah, just a torso's got no handibles. He's just got a torso. He's far then, and because he's a man's to handle bus. Now. This is horrific. So the I think, really challenging thing about this freeze frame is the the fleshy complexion of the motorcycle. It's it. The BODOM slows into motorcycle. The motorcycle looks as though it's made of skin. I don't I'm not a fan. Are we ready for wars? Are All moving. I understand. Boy Cycle. Now go for it, boy, he's a boy cycle. Where's his whanger? where? You'll see, I know. Okay, so the man is nursing him. Now he's taking care of his cycle. Oh my God, that there's a motorcycle in the bed with a blanket over it. He's now walking the man. It's just kind of pushing a long filming. This the end. This is the way me. There are headlights where there should be to meet and me and too potatoes and to Tay's baby, and then he said she is. This is the worst thing you ever showed me. Our loads of time is passing. If the passage of time always wheel spinning, I steam will spends. This is incredible. The man's angry. There are utes, British utes. Oh, he's being washed. Daddy's washing the boy cycle. Oh No, he's washing the headlights, which is, as I said, we're all wrong. I should be. This is...

I hate this. This is how skin skin boy, skin motorcycle boy, did a little skip on some grass, it got fairy muddy, and now he's his new dad is setting him up, washing him down exactly where his peepers should be. Yeah, what just at fifty nine seconds, can we just get a bit of a vibe check how we feel about solve the talking actual's boy cycle? Thus far, I'm nervous. I don't like it. I have this gives me the same feeling that like all those creepy pastors with like Mickey Mouse's face give me. I think the most challenging thing for me is somebody thought about it and then put this much fucking effort in, and it's magical because this, this is a lot. It's yeah, I mean, how many views does this video have? How many people have been subjected with this horror? Still put? I'm going to let you guess. How many do you think? Three millions, and we're we're three of them. Four point eight million. Good, great, right, Slavatogan Acti, we need to talk to you about what you're exposing people to. This, this, this is unhealthy. It makes me feel bad, bad things. I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm going to press play again now, now that he's having his peeps cleaned. It's not happy about washing the peepis is he old? Nope, skin boys very happy. Oh Shit is riding him. He's looking through some bushes at two swans that are in love and too cart croaches that all roches and to human a lady in a man Oh God, he's ominously standing in the window on he's looking his feet. Is this gut scrap book full of pictures of People's feet which, if I was hiding it, like it or because he doesn't have feet. I get it. No, Dad, I wasn't. I wasn't looking at legs. Again, I this pause on the surgeon, on this smiled. Yeah, scene change here, just so we can really establish the shot of this aggressively one thousand seventy s bedroom in which the motorcycle boy resides in. And Yeah, he was flicking through picks off feated people and legs not yet confused with feated people, as in the people that smell and never a bit rotten all our place. And now we're looking at old man who's just entered the door. He's found his leg pawn collection, leg Poun yeah, and he's hiding it behind his back, trying to conceal it. Are We ready, dad? It's not. Yeah, of course, ready for some more. Let's guy. He's got a present of some kind. Oh, it's it's trousers for the motorbike. Oh, he's screwed them down and rolled away. Now it's after trying your house. Now he's doing a chaos to this old man's house. Made me alone, he says. He says you're not my real my real dad, which is my catchphrase. You learn need to find with the Ammahr that made me Oh, no, he's sad. He's laying down his back wheel spending without a chain. It's chainless rockets Bein Sadly, just seen a mermaid. He's a pot of a mermaid and he's enchanted by it. Well, he's putting everything back to heaving us. But he's a man with a motorbike for I like how his dad's Fitt a ramp for him. Yeah, outside the house, a bag packed. It's a sad scene this one. Ok, we just kind of leaving scoops away all this. You're just a voice of school father. I'm a man cycle. Good grief. Oh, he's he's just out riding through the twisties Cole side. What the fuck all? It seems as though he's looking for a mermaid. He found a picture of a mermaid and he wants to find said Mermaid. He's now just showing it to various citizens. Yeah, he's like, hi, I'm man cycle.

Have you seen my wife? He spotted some fishermen. Yep, he's at the he's at the dog fisherman. Have you seen this fanciful image of a mermaid? Or that laughing? That's not laughing at him. They've thought, they they've scrunched up his picture and thrown at him. Oh goodness, a big, a big punch. Man Cycles going. Yeah, they're just stomping on his fuel tank. And if I like how there was one shot where a guy just put his hand on the fuel tank, like everyone else was kicking, and he just kind of gently placed his fingers on it. Yeah, it's okay, I still got his mermaid thou. Oh God, it's Jack's a lady. It's a woman skis, woman fused with a flat sky. I love it. And now they're riding off into the sunset together. But man cycle on the sand, woman's ski on the Ocean, as it was meant to be. So well, yeah, I think of that selvertognatchis bicycle, I mean without the song. I failed to understand how it relates, but I don't think the lyrics are connected to the music video somehow. I could be wrong. You could correct me if I'm if I'm wrong, but I don't think they connected. Guys, can ask you if I saw the question and I need you to share a quickly. She's sorry, it's sorry, Alex. I'm just going to I'm going to Kut your us just super cut you off. If a man had a motorcycle for the the lower sort of portion of his body. Yeah, where are the pisses coming from? Where the poopies coming from? Well, you just you do have it. You have an oil change. Yeah, getting all about the exhaust, which, of course, plays a pivotal role in the excretion of waste. Well, it's all these just that exhaust pipe. Yeah, fit for people that don't know motorcycles. The cars have them. Yes, quite exhaust pipes. I hope so. They it's it is the pipe in which gas is exhausted. Okay, so he could fart from the exhaust pipe but not poop. Or could he poop? I've a really important question, that is about exhausts. Okay, important to test. US have exhausts. Okay, before before I answer that question and give you any kind of advice, I want you to explain why you think they might do well, because they've got their car and I'm so used to seeing cats of exhaust. I feel that's in a car. That exhaust is like seeing a man with a motorcycle for a for a body. You just kind of horrify. It's like seeing a person with no head. You're looking, you're like, oh, fuck. He's missing something important. It's an affront to nature. It's not, not right. We don't like it. Both gardened man are against you. Listen. Any headlesslisters out there, not sure you're welcome. Not sure you're allowed to be here if you haven't got a head. Stop listening. Let me hang on. WAAIT. We hang up. Where we? where? Would they put the earphones in their exhaust? No, in, but that was my segment of I show two people a video and then they describe it live on air. Will after editing. We'll see if that ever happens again. See how this one goes down. Can we, but for the people that are on our instagram and don't our facebook and all that like, can we please put a just a still, a cropped still of mad motorcycle on the teaser? Yeah, no, we we can do. We absolutely can do. If, for whatever reason, anybody listening at home needs to see what we've just seen. That was selvert or gnat cheese boy cycle available on Youtube, Vimeo and day emotion. Other streaming services are available. Which one's VIMEO? VIMEO, I I use VIMEO. HAVE WE USE Anyo? I've never used it. I'm an old I'm I'm a confused old man. What is what? What is all this new fangle technology? And know that I think vimeo...

...is a very old fangled technology that never really telve. MMM, listen to me. If you're listening, we're still down for that sweet sponsorship. Now that Alex has completed that sort of very revolutionary segment of his, do you guys fancy playing a game of them? And what the frictionary? I'm down. Yeah, please, yeah, just just just a quick one, middle of the show, game time, separate the segments. Why not? We should probably have some like introductory music right about here. Tom, can you put together some music for this? Yes, yes, I will do it now. No, Tom, I hated that one, that one, that that one really doesn't fit. Can you do a new one? What about this one? Have you got anything with like like basia drums? Okay, super base coming now, but Nicki Minaj is superbase. Did you like it? I don't know if we can use that. I don't think he's going to give US permission to use super base. I'll ask her, I'll ask nicky. Alex. can you text Nicki Minaj? I know you guys are close. Cheesy sister, it's gonna BE AWKWARD IF I have to ask her she's she's your dad. And now the real music, the the one that isn't a prank. Thank you, and welcome everybody to a game of urban duff frictionary. And where's all your gumption and gone? Mate, where's the stank? There was so much stank on urban frictionary the first time. Let me try again. Welcome everybody to urban what the freak schtionary. Much a bad thank you, much stank you. It's so good to be back. Thanks for having US Tom you're welcome. I've a lovely day out so far. I'm really excited to get down and play. Okay, for any new listeners, on today's episode of and what the Frictionary, the three of us will each try and define a an entry from the urban dictionary and we don't know what the definition is. So the first one that I've got is clutch oven. That's clutch cel you T C H oven, the thing that is hot that you cook flesh in Clutch Oven. Yeah, it sounds lucky, right. Well, not a nice way of saying that. The what. The what oven is, but we digressed. I did you mean the hot flesh box? Yeah, the hot the hot flesh place, the place where you put cold stuff in and make it be good when it comes out. Fair enough. So a Dutch oven is a something. Is it is a bad is the clutch of an a relative. It sounds. It sounds as though it has to be. And but again, please don't ask me as though I know what it is. I don't know the definition either. Bouncing ideas off my two chums to see if we can put the world to rights, define a figure out between us, using scientific evidence and facts, what US clutch othern is. It's Halfman, half motorcycle, Dutch oven. It's when motorcycle and the blankets and he uses an exhaust but he's got the clutch in so he's not doing burnouts in bed. Oh, you don't want to do a burnout in bed, do you know? Yeah, of course not. Try to say getting burnt out in bed. It's not good for you. The friction first of all great. A man cycle or human burning out in bed is bad. Yeah, especially a man cycle, because if you're the big spoon and he's the man cycle, I'd be so comfortable to spoon. I'm sorry, I'm getting sidetracked. Oh yeah, each other's it is perfect. That's that's the only thing I look for in a partner. HMM, how good are they to set on? My partner has this wonderful addition where I just bring a booster seat and put on our lap. It's really good. That weird. I might have I gone too far, but now...

I think a clutch oven is what is? Motorcycle farts in it. That's my guess. Okay, Alex, cycle facts. Clutch Oven, I do think is, yeah, related to Dutch oven. Clutch is it where you do a Dutch oven, but you clutch them and you hold them in place so that unable to escape the Fart prison. So an aggressive Dutch of any see for me? Yeah, I sort of. Yeah, I was. I was going along the same lines. Clutching like grabbing something. So, without being too utterly disgusting, is hand entering something and grabbing a hold of whatever it is, post or pretty Dutch oven? I'm not sure. This is awful, horrific and I hate every single bit of it. What is he couchet? I'll be oh, okay, so a clutch oven is too fart in a car full of people. Crank the heat and lock the doors. That's a war crime in five different countries. The Geneva Convention is in place to stop exactly this. That actually the Geneva Conventions in tatters now because of this. This is yet totally torn to rem desecrated. Well, look what's happened to my darling boy. But Anyway, I think as a result of that little quick game of what the frictionary Ashure, you now the host. I think I'm taking over the universe as host, not just to the show but of everyone's lives. Okay, listeners, I'll be telling you what to do. Check your mail box for instructions later today and my segment this week, I'm going to talk to you or about our Lord and Savior, cancel culture and by the Savior, I want to talk to you about how I think, and this is a hot take coming in for real fresh removing people's right to to talk about certain subjects, whilst really good for the people that are being victimized by those people saying, there's things. So, for instance, a lot of people who are racist get band off twitter. Personally, I'm a fan of that, but I also think it comes with the connotation of making martyrs of these people. Well, when these people, with these are opinions, are being silent star. Well, somebody that's dead. You know. They're idiots who are like Oh, they're speaking the truth the fellow flat earths and fucking racists and bigots. And it, COUNC of couture, is dangerous because it makes martyrs of the people that it's canceling. Hmm, I'm surprised. That's the stunts you you took up when you when you mentioned that you would be doing cancel culture. I thought you would be on the other side of fun and you'd be very, very for it and and love it. That's I go surprised, but yeah, no, I'm in agreement. I think it takes away the ability to face your accuser and go well, hang on, you've had one side of this story, but, as we all know, they always have two, and this is mine. Absolutely and if you take away their opportunity to first of all say their side of the story and also you remove the opportunity for growth, like nobody gets better. Don't talk them through it, like if somebody's a fucking racist, by all means, Hey man, what you just said not fucking cool. Here's why you're wrong. Here's why you shouldn't be thinking like that and then get them to try and explain it because for most people, for most people that have those stupid racist opinions, it comes from ignorance, I think. Yeah, racism is one of those where if somebody publicly on twitter, as your example, is racist, it's quite easy to look at that and go, no, you used a word there that is so not socially acceptable. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it. You done a racist but with slightly more like nuanced stories. I had to I had to gather up leading expert witness on canceled culture, because the Group of people that I follow on the Internet, and Youtube specifically, they just talked about race cars and you know, going quickly, yeah, MOS, likely they're going to say anything to be coming our. Look at this vate modor it hands...

...it canceled. How could you? But my fiance birth and her circle, there's a lot of it, kind of with lifestyle and beauty vloggers and all of that, and I kind of had a crash course on cancel culture pre episode and Yeah, it is. It is very interesting because it does entirely take away your position to go whoa hang on no, that's not what that that's sequent of events. Is Incorrect. But also there's an awful lot of pandering on the Internet and as part of my research I ended up on James Charles. Are the two of you familiar? Yeah, high their sisters. That's you got it, Actuley. Yeah, so I believe, to summarize what I was taught this morning, two years ago, I think, kicked off with two people accusing him of doing a something that may or may not have been true. The voice was taken away and over a coult a period of time it was proved that actually the thing didn't really happen in that way. More recently, though, there have been further accusations that James Charles has been approaching underage people, MMM, trying to do a relationship with them. Yeah, and it the world is great behavior. The world has gone some what crazy with accusations of he should be verifying their age and in all of the proof that is happened, he does. He asks the question and unless you're iding everybody you talk to, I feel like at one point, though, he did follow the kid on social media. The Kid said, Hey, I can't talk tonight. It's me, it's me Dwang Birthday Party and then on his social media here is holding a balloon that said not not of legal age to Shag adds. Sorry, the balloon, the balloon, the whole thing was just said not of an age to Shag. Adults. Yes, but yeah, it was a big I don't think you could buy that from TESCO. So that one, there's a custom, very specific event balloon. Yeah, yeah, I'm reluctant to joke too terribly about this because obviously, yeah, I asked those there's obviously is a problem here. This is this is this is a very hot topic and just to throw my two pence in the ring, and I'm very, very happy to die upon the horse that I that I sit upon. The view is majestic. Voice Cycle and love, yes, the boys cycle. I love cancel culture. I don't share your sentiments purely for the fact that you know, when somebody sympathizes with a granny for using a racial racial slurs have been outlawed for not three months, not one year, yeah, but many, many time. And so my opinion is that if you do something on a public stage where other people can read and hear those things, you don't deserve to really atone for them. For example, if the three of us are sat in a room and I say something insensitive, you guys give me the benefit of the doubt, you learn me and I don't do it again. You know, I get better. But if I am stupid enough to say something that could be taken as offensive or just point blank is offensive, I don't deserve the same respect, because it's not just the three of us. Caution that it's share. Everybody deserves an opportunity to learn, grow and develop and become better. You run the risk of your actions being how you feel about what you do is by who is watching you do it. So what your statement was that in front of in front of your three friends, you can make a mistake, be corrected on that mistake and still be a good person. You make that mistake in front of a thousand people and you and you run the risk of offending way more people. This is this is my point. It's more so it's but if you find a rock, if if you throw a rock and...

...it into a crowd and it hits one person, is that worse than throwing the Rock at one person? Or is at the same crime? It's the same crime. It's just more people saw you do it. By all means, tell a racist. There are, there are fucking more. On listen and punch a racist. I'm not. If you're listening and you have racist friends or racist family and you've corrected them once and they haven't changed, punch a racist like I'm here. Yeah, sock the racist. However, when you when they delete accounts, for instance, and one of my least favorite people in the world, gk. Jk Rowling, wrote some fantastic books and was canceled because of some transphobic comments. Now some of my closest friends are trans and I will punch a transphobe, no problem. I've no issue with that. But in removing JK Rowling's right to say, okay, here's why I felt like this, and this is why and x and Y and zed, a lot of people who are transphobic are using JK rowling as their little mascot. And I do, I do, I do see your point. I do get with with stuff like that. It's really stark. It's so start that contrast between you know, hey, this really fucking cut and dry. This respected person that influenced so many people's Childhood's, myself might mine, included. That I love jk rowlings work to then suddenly be a figure of Oh no, that's actually, you know, a symbol of Transphobia, a spearhead for the community of transphobes. Yeah, of course that's fucking awful, but it's really easy to define because you look at it and go, yeah, that's exactly what it is. With more nuanced story and issues, there needs to be a chance to get both sides of the rhetoric. Otherwise it is just one accusation and somebody goes, yeah, that's Fucking Bang on. That is this is the outcome. In the same way, if you walked up to somebody in the street in front of a police officer with a shotgun and shot somebody in front of the police, quite clear that's what happened. A crime took place in front of a witness. That's what happened. With more complex cases, that that's why there are juries and, you know, court cases, trials. What is the evidence? How do we if there was a crime committed? How do we appropriately punish this? What? What's the right way of going about this? What actually happened? And I think the people see that being online is a right. You know, people like, Oh, I've been removed off twitter. What about freedom of speech? Homie tears? A private company. They don't know you private, you don't you know. It's not a right. You know what I mean? It's it's something. It's not a given. Yeah, it's not for you. It's a company. Twitter Giveth and Twitter Taketh away, and absolutely, as the Bible says, twitter giveth, but also he who is without sin cast the first tweet. Good grief, I think. I think it's really I think it's really difficult because you guys know of a director called James Gunn. He directed the Guardians of the galaxy films. Is that rings any bells? He was, I mean no, sort of no, no, I'm saying, going to have seen it was. He's a director, man of comedy movies, good comedy. He was removed as director of the second guardians of the galaxy film because of a slew of tweets that appeared from way back in two thousand and nine. People hated him, be like he was. That was it, it was. He was done. He he had been canceled. However, and when you view the tweets that he done made through the the view finder of two thousand and nine comedy. Yeah, he was being accused of like pedophilic comments and stuff like that, but all he had said was, like my showerhead feels like a six year old pissing on me, and it's like that's only sexual if you make it sexual. A week stream of PISS. Yeah, yes, it's sexual. If you see six year old pissing. Is exactly most precisely I would assume day. I don't. There is also a gay come circles back round to like ashes ashes point, because it's like if you you're throw a rock into a crown thing. It's maybe at the time he had a thousand followers and now he's gone hundreds of...

...thousand, so that you're the chances of somebody look like going set some oh that's weird now. It wasn't. He isn't just more more people to perceive it process. It should be a standard bit of limitations on Bullshit that you've said, because probably we have all said like nobody in this in this podcast and nobody listening, and I defy you to tell me otherwise. Listeners has never said anything wrong. I have said some horrible things, like, no doubt Alex and and you get. You both definitely said some horrible things, but it's about intent. I in the last three years I don't think I've said anything to deliberately hurt someone. I don't think I've pointed my words at a person and thought now, fuck you, especially other things beyond that person's control. Yeah, but fifteen year old me, fifteen year old me was an Asshole, like I'd punch that guy in the face and I find it really hard to believe that if it was, let's say this podcast made it and we we do well, one of our five hundred listeners boosters to the moon and we become very popular. Yeah, I, I. I worry for the skeletons that would be found, because we've all fucked up. YEA, and council culture is the removal of the opportunity to say, Hey, listen, all those years ago I was a different person. I made a mistake and I haven't done that. It's like I've changed. I'm it's been it's been x amount of years. I'm a whole different man now. Apologies, but it removes the opportunity to be better. Ash. Do you mind if I adjust my initial comment, please? Yes, I do mind. Fuck you, know. Okay, and I would say that for the most part I would treat cancel culture is very black and white, and yet my stands would be love it, great, brilliant, bring it on, get racists got. You know, it's that. That would be my steps. Let's get racist gone. What I will say is that, based on what you've just said, I would say I totally agree with you in that if a prominent figure put something on twitter today and says, Oh, fuck that marginalized community or whatever, you know, something horrible and insensitive, yes, get them gone, but I will I will admit that. You know, people can make mistakes and can be not as educated as they should be and maybe something that they did ten years ago they should be given the opportunity to at least explain or a tone for that mistake. So I will give you guys that for sure. I think. Yeah, an interesting way of looking at it is is there? So, is there a time and a place for cancel culture? Yeah, I think there really is. In those stark instances of no, that is undercouse, Gorey, coming correct weivekly awful and you're a bad person. You've got a history of this and you don't deserve whatever you've got. Currently, one ever take away. Yeah, canceled. With the slightly more nuance things, I think it's always worth giving somebody an opportunity to improve. No, nobody has, nobody has the power to take away somebody's right to improvement. No, no, you're right, you're up. Yeah, that's fair point. Yeah, it's a dangerous, dangerous game, and I think it makes it harder to have the hot button conversations that need to happen, because change does not come from the barrel of a gun. It comes from a conversation, it comes from talking to your fucking racist friends. Make them explain the joke, calling them how. WHO, prominently, has been canceled? Who Do we know? Who Do we know? It's been JK Rowling, James Child, OHS Alex Jones, famously removed from twitter. Donald trump was D twittered. Wasn't me listen that? If anyone needed to bed twittered. He's a dangerous person to let have social media. He was supers up. He was a dangerous man to let run for president. He was a dangerous man to let have some any kind of empire. Really, he was just a bad blow. So that one fuck. Yeah, here's idea was it to have America have their pop political system be a...

...popularity contest? Whose idea was that? Because you can't let popular people run your country because they're popular for all the wrong reasons. You're not well liked for being good at your job. You're well liked for being funny, and those two aren't the same skill. Like sometimes I'm quite funny. Would I run a country? Absolutely not. Do you remember that time the Borris said that thing about Bendy Busses, though? That was very bad, bad, bad bendy busses. Till the young people, like all Boris Johnson will voting into power and then it turns out he's a cocaine snorting racist. Yeah, I did it, and for the cocaine as well. I think it's all very, very charming. Charming young man. Charming man, no, charming young man that does cocaine and just but bendy buss I like that picture of him when he's like he's like in one of those harnesses going down a zip line and he looks like he should be in a poos. It looks like Gordon Brown. Happen? Can listeners come one of Your Photoshop Gordon Brown holding our favorite Boris Johnson in a Papoos. Listeners. Would you mean listeners? Like it's not gonna fuck you. Be Me. I I'm not going to Adok you to Alex because I fear it'll do them naked. If you want me to do it, I can. Yeah, I can. Could you imagine the size of Boris Johnson's Johnson tiny, with massive testicles, but like a not in like a good way. It's got massive testicles, but it's haunting. It's in the darkness. I close my eyes and I see them. Well, that's the stuff of nightmares. I mean with that, talking about testicles and pimpasses and another game of urban what the frictionary? or Yes, please play that beautiful music. Okay, the one I've got here. Hold on, it's called chipmunking chip monking. So chipmunk, but with an Eng on the end. The animal, the rodent, chipmunk, with an eyeing on the witting. Loads of nuts in my mouth. I'M gonna putting loads of nuts in my mouth. Okay, yeah, no, that could very well be here. I was gonna say it sounds like for my during I think it was my geography gcse, I wrote my name on it and then spent the hour that ensued trying to fill my mouth with as much saliva as I possibly could. So I'm sorry, just to stop you, just to stop. Yeah, so we're gonna go off, go off track for a second. Yeah, and one of my friends was actually talking about you the other day and they said the one of their favorite things that you ever did in school was in your religious education exam. Yeah, you scribbled over the entire front page of the exam. When the invigilator came over to say, Alex, could you like not? Uh Huh, you just threw your desk and left the exam. That does sound like Alex. in fairness, I was a different person back then. Yes, Alex is canceled for being disrespectful to an exam. Before I'm canceled. It was. It was wrong of me. I shouldn't have treated that vigilator like that. And all my fellow peers, I made a mistake. I was suffering with some stuff. They're funny though. Funny Funny Form though. Adult listeners. Stop invigilating exams. Stop It. It's not a cool job. Do I regret it? To get back to my point, I filled my mouth with so much saliva that I think I looked a bit like a chipmunk. But we're dribble. So you think it's liquid based, then rather that not. That was where my mind first war and the nasty said the thing about testicles. Okay, this podcast could be boiled down to the sentence. And then Ashley said the thing about testicles. That's the new tagline, the thirty three percent majority. And then Ashley spoke about balls and editing together the teaser right like today now.

I started it this morning at the title of is that time Ashley said Puss. I don't like that. Last episode was a blacked out for the entirety of my segment last episode. That's the is here right now. You just what we've got the subject of exams happening. Does anyone else remember how weird people behave when they're in exams? Alex, you're a prime example, coloring in the entire front page and then throwing your desk and walking out. I liked him when people were just fainting like that was a whole thing. Were was a rumor going around that if somebody died during the exam, everybody would get their predicted grades. Yeah, which wouldn't have been great for me, because I'm thick as pig. Sure, I've never done exams, but I like people are like our who's taking on for the team, and I'm like the day. Maybe maybe that's my calling. Maybe I get everybody else here in a so in my English language exam, which I I'm a I'm going to Brag a little bit, do quite well in. It finished about half an hour early. I was sat really near to a close friend of mine, of your life that time. Yeah, we all sat close to it, a good friend of mine and the two of us, Alex, as you'll be aware, just used to find it funny to make silly noises. So we had a game of bogies, but with the noise that be kept, that became unmanageable. I didn't and I didn't know which friend you were talking about until you made the noise. I yeah, very, very clear. Yeah, and we got away with it and I did well in the exam. Walked out with an a wonderful yeah and a broad oh, what heady highs. Was that your highest grade? What was your highest grade? Tom I got I got an IT GCSE. I got an a English language in an a in the performing arts. Say those are what was your mother's maiden name? Yeah, I'm taking of your identity. How did you do in school? I did fucking terribly, but I've lied on my CV, so it doesn't matter. Yeah, yeah, yeah, if I'll, gobody's checking it. Listeners, people don't check your CD. If you get my gcse results and if you write down my grade to the sheet of paper, it spelled the word fudge. That sounds good. It's not a good end of the alphabet to be able to do an Anagram with no. No. So good work, good work on the schooling guys. Yeah, chip, but Oh, yeah, we would do a segment. Yeah, this, yeah, it's not school segment. Yeah, no, it's not time Tommy. Tommy's not time. It timy's not times. I think it's nibbling on something, but I'm not sure what I'm what. Don't fucking tell me what right now or you don't get the point. That pimpous to find out. Yes, please, absolutely so. Chipmunking is the act of watching numerous recorded university lectures at two times speed in a futile attempt to cover an entire semester's material the day before a final exam. So hang on, we were bang on the money. Why did we go to school? What as in like the topical. That's how we exams, because because that was in a very similar vein. Are we were close. We actually what I'd you know what, as far as yeah, a bloody well, school didn't. We went into exam. Whig mistake. We were close. Well, there we go. Anyway. Are we go? Should I be? Should I be big boss man now? I don't know. I think actually still the host now. Actually, do you want him to join him? To be the host? I guess I'll hand over the reins. But I feel the final point is cancer courts. LOAM was canceled Tom and mine is cancel cultures. Suit comes canceled to K twenty one. Yeah, counsel canceled for Liking Cancel...

Culture. So this petition change Org. Yeah, Tommy Su double x and from his band, from twitter. I'm sorry. Okay, well, with that. I am the host. I'm not. I'm not sure. I'm not sure if you're allowed. Like the conceit of the show is that I get fifteen minutes. It's now my turn. So I'm a I'm a big boss man and you can have it. It's all, yeah, I can, I can have it. No, I will, I will. He's having it now. It's going. No, we're really no, permission for permissions not necessary. I just I get it that I have. I'm getting permission anyway. It's nice. No, your permissions unnecessary. Like I appreciate it, but that's why you're the best host. That's why Actuley's such a nice, good host. He's my favorite. No, but how do you think people have got favorites? Hang on, WHOA probably existential crisis. Well, our listeners have favorite that like this very much. I don't think we should ever actually talk about that. I don't think we should. We should never talk about that and might not like one of us more than the it's not me. I know that. I know that it's not me. He's probably I'll have to quit. Think it's probably favorite. It's probably time, though, isn't it comes my favorite very litly. I've opened a Gentle Young Con soled him. You just canceled me. So it's a real shame. We shouldn't. We shouldn't have done it, but we did. We shouldn't have canceled time, but it's done now. We should have waited to hear his side of the story. I wish Tom we're here. I'm miss him anyway. Time. You can be the house now if you like. I'll pass over. Fuck off, I am without your permission. I'll die on this hill to you. Got Mates all you. Yeah, fuck, I know, I know. It's me. I wanted to talk about paranormal activity, so that the spooks again, but less like sort of authored stories and more my own experiences, because my fifteen minutes all about me. I can make it about whatever I want, and it's me today. Ash, unplug, and this isn't for for us. Yeah, some good grief. Do you know what? Some of the some of the previous episodes we've done, it have been next to a nightmare, but this, this has been been batterive. Hell, it's been difficult. Can I host now? Can we actually guys? Guys, I'm going to. Let's reset the VIBE. I love you both of we go on a bit hostile. Yeah, it should. We just come on, guys, enter this. No, no, hang on, hang on, let me set the scene. Gentlemen, come this way with me and to the end to this relaxing resort with me. Do you hear that? Calm, indulging music. Let Your Spirit ride away on the on the beautiful waves of this audio file, isn't it? Isn't it Nice? It's beautiful. It's beautiful. Just three framzies be having fun. Paranormal activity. I done experienced one to actually, and I don't not sure if I believe in ghosts. I think aliens are probably a little bit more plausible than ghosts, but I just wanted your help to probably figure out what actually happened, not the paranormal explanation. Okay, sounds how help help you find reality in your in your stories and your experience. Yes, yes, yes, exactly. So I've got two stories you guys. I'm going to give them just like sort of brief titles. You guys can pick which one you hear first. One involves a church and one involves lights. Which one do you want first? Do? Church first. I can't wait to can't wait to discuss the religious impotence. Church, please, church, Church. Okay. So, as just for your reference and the listeners, I suppose, because they don't know me that well, my sort of childhood house. It was on it was at the beginning of a fen road and as you walked down the fen took to take the dogs out for a ween a...

...ween a pool, and there was a big, big old church that was regularly used on Sundays, but apart from that you never really saw anyone. Anyway. I think it's a Thursday night. It's a weekday, for sure. I'm fifteen. I've taken out a lovely Labrador and a spring of Spaniel for their evening Trot. I let them off specifically where the Church car park begins, because from that point onwards there's no more houses. The church is the last thing down the road. Now all of the lights in the church are off, as they typically tended to be late in the evening. There was no activity that things were silent. The dogs scampered off to have a bunch of sniffs and as I proceeded to walk further, all of the lights of the church came on. There was a huge smashing sound and then, as I looked to my right to look at the church, what looked like like a a Napkin from far away, fluttering around in the windows of the church. I know what it was. A Bell, then it was a nimed, but then all of okay, cool, cool saying over fuck me, you'd sell about goes. But then the actual the bell chimed and then all of the lights went off again and that was it. I've I swiftly gathered up the dogs and fucked off back home as fast as possible. But yeah, that's the that's the the activity that I experience and I was just wondering if we can try and piece together logically and scientifically why it happened. Absolutely I have experienced Tommy, I don't even think you know this. This is a secret, secret that I came to myself. For many years, my grandmother used to ring bells at the church. She was a bell ringer, okay, you know, and I was a bell ringer for a short spell. You were, and I was, yeah, pretty enjoyed it. Well, is good. It's good for us. That the most Alex Job by I can imagine Alex doing that and being like the most happy he's ever been. Lex quite quite a quilling a big rope and just go and dingled Angland. You some dingled angling. So I think good. What may have happened, you know, to explain the Bell Ring and when you're done ringing bells, if you imagine a bell is on like a HMM, like an ax all type deally. So it's it can swing. Yeah, yeah, with me. Have I explained that in a good way so far yet with you? So far? Yeah, as you pull the rope, you kind of got to get that momentum go in and then when it goes all the way the other way, you pull the rope again, trying to get a big swing going. Then you go big swing, a big swet, and you're trying to get it to balance at the top. Yeah, right here. So like a small knock either way would send the bell going down. I think that's I think a wind happened and the bell fell just on its axis, thing as it is, as it will want to do, and then it done a chime. Yeah, and it scared the electricity into coming on. Yeah, yeah, I was gonna say. I was gonna say, how does the bell falling account for the lights turning on and off? Scared the okay, so that's got your vaults really really it's beltage. Alice's grandma was just fucking with you. She's got the light switches, she's got the powers. She's a bell ringer, you know. So what if Alex is grandma? She saw me from the steeple and she said fuck is like this and let Guy Walking is duks fuck this guy. Yeah, or it is. It is God's house. It's God's house. God lives there. In that one specifically, I'm I'm going to fuck some people up. The play this the play this podcast out loud. I think God just was like Hey, Alexa, wake me up in an hour, I'm gonna have a nap. And that was a leg lights a lot. Get up, Jesus,...

...get out of it, go to the school and he's God's house. And then at the alternative is like our God is everywhere. If God is everywhere, why do I have to go to a church to visit him? I can't. You do house visits. You don't have to, but that's where he lives. It's very real and he's nice to pop over, isn't it? Yeah, suppose. Well, he's omnipotent, so you can reach him from anywhere, you can call him from any where you want to. But if you want to go see where he lives, where the Holy Spirit is and where Jesus lays with him, you not go to you don't call church. Jesus laying with him sounds a bit sus to me, although like that. I believe, though, that Jesus is God's son, or but also is God. Yeah, so, wait what? We missed religion by a major mark. Hang on, for Jesus is God? Yeah, Jesus is God, but is also the son of God. He is God on Earth. Be Your Own Dad, yes, but also we're all God's children. What makes Jesus so special? Why is he the favorite? He's good at spells, isn't? He is pressed the digitation skills. He can walk on water. He's got a plus six to spell castings. It's really high combat stats. You wouldn't want to hand Tang Combat Jesus. What's Jesus is class in there in DD what's his rogue? Rogue, Maje wrote, Bar Barb road cleric, maybe Clara claric, maybe click lay cleric? Probably the cleric. Yeah, what's his deity? Is it dad? Yes, Daddy. I wonder, though, how game breaking it must have been when Jesus revived himself, though, like he brought himself back from the dead. Nobody else done that. He did. He did that. He rose and made us have Easter. Three successful death saves. Yeah, exactly. Jesus but that one time she just got so drunk that he passed out in a cave and woke up three days later. Okay, we got distracted there for for listeners at home. Yeah, we do dungeons and dragons as well. So that's cool of us, isn't it? We've all played it, we've all been there and we don't mind admitting it. It's the peak of Nerd dam but also some of us, if you have him to get cool. No, no offense was intended about the whole Jesus jokes. We love our Lord and Savi Yer. Heyesus, we love him. Okay, we've accept deception. Check. We respect anybody. We respect anybody that worships any religion. The only reason that we're in a position to spin off of the law, as it were, is because I went to a Catholic school and you know, yeah, we can't be canceled for being religiously insensitive because all of us had religious upbringings. That's that's the the carrot of its super sure you now, but we didn't say anything. I think now, of course, that let's what's your other story, Tommy? Yeah, it's Tom about the spooky ghosts. So do you want to get on the other story now? Yeah, because we yeah, that Lee. It was just Jesus God setting a reminder on Alexa, and Alex is grandma fucking we have the bells, so we know where that one was on about. Okay, Google, subscribe to the thirty three percent majority podcast. Just seeing what I can do that. Guys. Just try. Was Listening to see big up to yeah, stood up, did a prank on everybody. Xbox turn. I have been all pranked by the frank at. Okay, sorry, Numero Doss. I'm driving back from spoulding, which is a place the would suit too. Is Thilby, near born, which also happens to be a place. And again late evening there's a there's a theme here, and my father's driving. I'm in the passenger see, and we're just about driving past of farm and I think I had a phone at the time, but it may not have been that of that much interest to me, and I remember looking up and I saw three orbs in the sky. They were they're incredibly higher, but they were...

...bright enough for me to see them. Two of them was sort of very close to each other and then the third was further away from the to I would say that they may Chinese linens, Chinese Lunton's. There you go. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. So they're in the sky and I point them out to my dad and my dad doesn't believe me and I say, well, I'm not lying. Stop, stop the car and just get out and have a look. So he pulls over. It this farm and we're looking up and there are three lights in this guy and so now my stories more credible because daddy seen it. To get him on the phone. Get get him on the phone. Tell them you're actually calling tim right, actual Tim and the Sho Tim on the show. I'm so excited. If he answers the phone, I'm a book Code Non Ironically, directly into the MIC. Dad, I want you to watch your language and buck buckle up, because you are currently on the podcast. I've just dialed you in. I've paged you into the podcast. What was going on? You're on the POD. Live till you hear your live. So basically, Dad, I have got the other boys in my ear. You can't hear them at the moment, but basically we're talking about paranormal activity and paranormal stories and I was just explaining about a time when I saw three lights in the sky and it was pretty, pretty spooky, and I said the most and you saw it too. So I was just wondering if you could recount the store or to give me a bit of credibility. Yeah, well, it was down the straight to to Baston and you just thought or just thought it was an air of plane and you did a noise and it may just all kept all in a straight more not in a straight line. There was sort of in a bit of a triangle, but they weren't flashing and it was just weird and we just jumped out the car to look at it and hear from it and it was just sort of very surreal that there was no noise and it was lucky that it was probably a still evening and we could near anything. And then we couldn't put it down to anything in particular. Yeah, and then, and then they they darted off towards sort of deep in sint James Direction, faster than straight straight over deep in fasts deep. Yeah, Woll and, what does timmy what does timmy suspect? It was believe in in Ufos and all that stuff. So I just think it's possible that it was a sort and but that's the fact that everybody's full of, unless you can probably get older the air force or anything like, of substantiating whether, yes, there was three air of planes that we're really caught ones that were flying over that night, and it just seems strange that there was no deviation and stuff like exactly just all together. Yeah, well, Dad, thank you very much for giving creed and to my story. The the other boys say thank you, and you shall now be able to hear yourself on the air waves that release of this episode. Look forward to Wednesday, as always, Chooesday. Thanks for that one, Dad, but it well, Dad. Thanks very much. Have a lovely day. Thanks to me soon. Goodlook, boys, and no freak to you, to the two goals that are can here. So bye, bye, bye. Thank you will to that. Can you believe actual tim...

...impromptu, everybody, that was Daddy. But yeah, the story. I didn't make the downy thing up. No, you've got some credibility there now to me, I think that's that's very good. Timmy's rights. Interesting points about government bodies being being involved. What we suspecting? Military testing of hypersonic speed capable aircraft over the overdeeping in the UK, over Baston, Lincolnshire. Fuck it. No, to be fair, there's there is. There is an element to that because it's quiet, isn't it not? It's not like you're flying over, yeah, densely populated city. It's fields. Yeah, that that is true. That is true. Well, anyway, although we maybe didn't solve that on because we did get daddy in, but we have overran slightly. It was nice to have a guest though, but I think, yeah, let's go with military testing and the try testing. Alternatively, maybe deeping is where the aliens live and they just nipped out for a little wonder makes use actually spotted by world famous podcaster Tom and his world claim as Dad Tim, because they can tell the future, and then they just piddled down really quickly. To be fair, if they were going to live anywhere, it would be deeping and on that know, lots of pinkules. So much for listening. It's been a pleasure. Thanks for coming, guys. Do you see anything else? How do we normally finish these? I I usually finish with like a grunt and then some tissue with sadness. Well, I just wanted to say thanks very much to everyone for listening and, as we've said previously, giving us a like, a share, a subscribe, recommending us to friends. It's all incredibly helpful. But we also just wanted to say that anything and everything that you've given us so far has helped us get to five hundred streams Englishe our first month of doing this, and that's probably crazy numbers. Four hundred and eighteen more than we expected. So we are just over the moon and very, very grateful. So thank you very much. If you have any suggestions for subjects, feel free to send them in, because at some point we're gonna have to drag one of your Larne to debate. You. HMM, be loved, a lightful pleasure. I have a lovely day. Thank you for listening. See you next week. Bye, bye, boy.
