Don’t Touch The Bugles Podcast

13 - It turns out I was just a clumsy nerd…

May 5, 2019

The number 13 is synonymous with bad luck. It's considered unlucky to have 13 guests at a dinner party, many buildings don't have a 13th floor and most people avoid getting married or buying a house on a day marked by this fearful number. But you can forget about all of that because today is your lucky day as Jigg's patches himself up and decides to play through the pain barrier to host episode 13 of Don't Touch The Bugles podcast. 

Long time listeners of the podcast will remember that in episode 6 (Oh my God, they killed Teddy....you bastards!), Ellwood decided to throw out a quick fire round to get to know the rest of the Bugles. This week, it's payback, as Jiggs decides to put him through his paces and one question leads to Ellwood giving an update on his man-scaping.

The guys give a once over on the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie and based on the recently advertised trailer for it......well, let's just say Sonic needs to run back off to the wild and have a rethink about his latest career move! There is an update on a recent 'Game of Thrones vs Avengers: Endgame' poll that The Bugles ran on Instagram along with a bit of a review of the film. Don't worry, there aren't any spoilers.

With only two more weeks remaining and everything still to play for, there's an update on The Bugles League from last week. Will this be an anti-climax or will it go down to the wire? Jiggs then sets a new challenge involving ladies football.

Then it's onto the main event. The Bugles share their funny injury stories (should such a thing even exist) which range from hospital visits for tetnus jabs, stitches, burns, bruises, broken bones, electrocution, plasters and casts......and all of that is just for Diddly! They also share a few listener injuries for good measure.

Having just admitted to having some really stupid injuries, they decide to reassure themselves that they're not the dumbest people on the planet and read through some of their Weird Shit of the Week. This week includes stories about a change in death row meals, a drug user trying to get clean....quite literally, an argument over a terrible cup of coffee and new laws involving Putin wearing make up. Come on, we do call it Weird Shit of the Week for a reason!!

Finally, Diddly's Poppa makes another appearance and everybody, including Diddly himself, struggle to work out what's actually being said. If you can work it out, please get in touch. Seriously, please do!
