The Show: The Tranquillusionist

We didn’t completely do it justice but on today’s show we wanted to highlight Helen Zaltzman’s rebranding of her Allusionist podcast as the Tranquillusionist.

Designed to soothe rather than provoke, the shows so far include a monologue of punchlines to well known jokes and another composed of the lyrics to “Imagine” but deconstructed in backwards alphabetical order.

Our favourite though is the reading of a list of the Westminster Kennel Club Best In Show winners from 1907 all the way through to this year. Much respect to Warren Remedy, the only dog to have won Westminster three years in a row.

And on with the show…

The Show: “Like shearing a pig”

No criticism is implied.
No criticism is implied.

This is how Vladimir Putin deals with vexatious and frivolous enquiries about US citizens being lost in the Moscow airport transit lounge:

“In any case, I’d rather not deal with such questions, because anyway it’s like shearing a pig – lots of screams but little wool.”

Read the full story. He should watch Deliverance. And while he may not have a fondness for pigs he does have a love for horses. And guns. And knives. And judo.
