That’s ace. Alberta = Western Australia, BC = Victoria, Quebec = Queensland, Ontario = New South Wales.

I need you to offer up:
A state that’s so anonymous that the people who live there have forgotten it exists

That's a tough one, we've got bears in most provinces but not much in Canada really wants to kill you, including most of the bears. Let's go with Nunavut because they've also got grizzly and polar bears who are really dangerous, and moose who are assholes and also massive.

I don't believe I've ever said that we shouldn't celebrate his performances for England. You invoked this old discussion when he scored his third goal tonight, I'm not sure why.

Nice avoiding the question.

This accusation? The one of which he was cleared? Any others? Nothing else going on in your mind?

Whilst he might have done some dumb things as a 16 year old, I would say of late he has been more admirable



The case you linked was the second one, this was the first. Sorry, I got the order mixed up.

I'm with all of that, but you're talking about accusations. Only. 

But we did this before and you came up with nothing better than 'he was accused of'. I'm not asking you to like him. I'm not saying he's a role model. I'm saying that you've got nothing (that you care to share) which suggests we shouldn't celebrate his performances for England, let alone shun him altogether.

If you know something we don't, tell us.

I thought this week's was the best yet.  The first two have had some fantastic bits (such as the aforementioned demonstration of correct slipper technique) but a fair bit of padding.

I'm finding this partridge has many jokes, and many layers.... And a bit of Stan Laurel thrown in.

His return to school last week was extraordinary. The bit where he walks behind the pillar then emerges in school uniform. Then if you look you see him counting on his fingers as he waits for the corridor soundtrack to finish. Then the bashing the dummy in the gym. Just brilliant.
