Rants and Ravings of a Shiny Key


Despite the floral theme, it's as it says, just me being a bit miserable and occasionally going a bit soft and professing my love for something amazing!

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I'm a former stripper who is on the run from the law for murdering my husband with a wooden spoon. I try to use Tumblr to protest my innocence. Nah! I'm only joking! I've never been a stripper or been married in my life! As for the other thing...

Actually, I want to work in comedy and one day produce my own show. I am currently obsessed with Green Wing, Horrible Histories, Cardinal Burns, Father Ted, Miranda, and many more I can't list down. Also, I am the future stalker of Ben Willbond! I apologise in advance for my numerous plans to kidnap the man!*

If you like my blog, or enjoy the daily sexual frustrations I have, you can also follow me on Twitter, @ShinnyShinyKey I always love to talk to new people, so just drop me a tweet whenever you can!

*I have no intention on either kidnapping or stalking Mr Willbond, my obsession is not that drastic. So anyone reading, you may breathe a sigh of relief!

I wish my friends would take random pictures of me when we hang out because I’m an arrogant prick and I want more pictures of myself that aren’t selfies.

I’ve just found out that Australia are getting the second series of Cardinal Burns before the UK. This happened with the Green Wing special as well. Lucky bastards.

In Episode 12 of Pappy’s Bangers and Mash, at around 44 minutes and 28 seconds into the episode, sketch comedy troupe Pappy’s member Matthew Crosby made this statement:

“If anyone would like to, and I seriously mean this dear listeners, compile a list of questions that Tom has asked during PBAM, for example, ‘Is Denmark in Norway?’ and ‘Is an instrument an inanimate object?’ that would make for some great reading”

As of Sunday 20th April 2014, there are a total of 26 episodes of PBAM, – which is a big ask to transcribe, really – BUT because I had a lot of time on my hands (and also to help strengthen my transcribing skills, which will come in handy for my degree), I have followed Matthew’s wishes and compiled a list of every single question by fellow Pappy’s member Tom Parry that has been asked during every single episode of Pappy’s Bangers and Mash (including the MiniMash episodes).

Question-Marking Rules & Requirements:
Any question asked by Tom will be included into the list if they are:

  • Used as a conversation or topic starter;
  • Relevant to carrying on the conversation (with the exception of those that require too much explaining to make sense);
  • In the Mash part of the podcast, NOT the Bangers;
  • NOT general auxiliary interrogatives that are used at the end of sentences as markers for wanted replies by the speaker (i.e. doesn’t it?), unless the head clause(s) attached to the interrogative is also;
  • Entertaining and/or strange;
  • Statements in a questioning tone cos by the time I reached episode 25 I realised it might not count so now I guess it counts in some way.

It should also be pointed out that during some of the transcribing sessions I was listening to the podcast at 4am while very sleepy, and therefore did not always record certain questions. Another factor that restricted some of the question taking was either Tom spoke too quickly, or Matthew and Ben would overlap Tom as he was asking a question, and I found it difficult to catch what he was saying sometimes. Basically, despite the title of this document, not every question Tom has asked have been included onto the list, but the brilliant ones are still there, folks!

And so, after 4 days, 26 episodes, 27 pages, 12,000+ words, and a staggering 882 questions… Every Single Question Ever Asked By Tom Parry on PBAM.
