Can you turn your mobiles off? It's really embarrassing when they...

0:00:020:00:06

go off during the run. Very unprofessional.

0:00:060:00:09

This won't go off.

0:00:090:00:12

Oh, God.

0:00:120:00:14

Can I help? I do a similar thing for my mother sometimes.

0:00:140:00:17

This programme contains strong language

0:00:190:00:23

APPLAUSE

0:00:450:00:47

Good evening. Welcome to Have I Got News For You. I'm Dan Stevens.

0:00:560:01:00

In the news this week - at a meeting of the world's top economists,

0:01:000:01:04

the conclusion is that the only way out of the global financial crisis

0:01:040:01:07

is to make the younger generation pay for it.

0:01:070:01:09

At the White House, life comes full circle

0:01:160:01:19

as a male intern sends a photo via his mobile.

0:01:190:01:22

Wow! LAUGHTER

0:01:260:01:29

And on the set of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

0:01:310:01:34

One jungle dweller sees the size of Ant and Dec's paycheck.

0:01:340:01:37

With Ian is a performer who in 2003 was nominated for Best Newcomer

0:01:440:01:48

at the Edinburgh Fringe alongside some bloke called Michael McIntyre.

0:01:480:01:53

Where's MacIntyre tonight though, hey? What's that?

0:01:530:01:57

He's at the Liverpool Arena playing to 11,000 people

0:01:570:02:00

as part of a sell-out national tour? Anyway, please welcome Miles Jupp.

0:02:000:02:04

APPLAUSE

0:02:040:02:06

With Paul is a stand-up comedian

0:02:110:02:13

who was once described by The Times as Hobbit-like.

0:02:130:02:16

I'm hoping that is because she is short and lovable

0:02:160:02:19

and not because she's got massive hairy feet.

0:02:190:02:22

-Please welcome Susan Calman.

-APPLAUSE

0:02:220:02:25

And we start with the bigger stories of the week.

0:02:290:02:32

Paul and Susan, take a look at this.

0:02:320:02:34

Yes, this is the News International story, the phone hacking,

0:02:340:02:37

the Hugh Grant, there's the editor

0:02:370:02:39

of the News of the World doing some research.

0:02:390:02:41

That's my twin sister. Yeah.

0:02:410:02:45

-That's me. Clearly.

-That is somebody from 1892

0:02:450:02:49

and Steve Coogan who was giving evidence as well.

0:02:490:02:53

This is the Leveson Inquiry, Lord Leveson is looking into this.

0:02:530:02:56

There were some grim stories about non-celebrities

0:02:560:03:00

and some other stories as well. The stuff keeps cascading out.

0:03:000:03:04

Yes, it was celebrities first, then the really grim stories,

0:03:040:03:08

and then Lord Leveson will come to the defence of the press,

0:03:080:03:12

which obviously it's not a great week to try and mount one.

0:03:120:03:16

But eventually I hope he gets round to the point that

0:03:160:03:19

we have only got an inquiry because a journalist

0:03:190:03:22

actually discovered this story. No MPs, not a policeman, not a judge,

0:03:220:03:27

it was a journalist who uncovered it. I'm hoping we won't throw out

0:03:270:03:31

the entire baby with the bath water.

0:03:310:03:34

What do you think the solution could be?

0:03:340:03:36

If you start regulating the press, then you have difficulties.

0:03:360:03:39

As you say you never would have found out about MPs' allowances.

0:03:390:03:42

There are endless solutions to this. The basic one is that

0:03:420:03:45

we have laws and nobody obeyed them.

0:03:450:03:49

And at the end of however many years it is, Lord Leveson will say,

0:03:490:03:52

"I think journalists should probably obey the laws."

0:03:520:03:55

All these activities are illegal and it would help

0:03:550:03:58

if the police enforced them.

0:03:580:04:00

It probably would help if they weren't working for the News of the World.

0:04:000:04:04

So there is a problem there. If the politicians' leaders are saying

0:04:040:04:09

it is really important to us to suck up to Rupert Murdoch

0:04:090:04:11

because, otherwise, his papers won't say "Vote Conservative"

0:04:110:04:15

or "Vote Blair" or "Vote Brown," you don't have a great incentive.

0:04:150:04:19

I should just go and give my evidence direct!

0:04:190:04:22

APPLAUSE

0:04:220:04:24

I gather Lord Leveson is going to call the most important witnesses next who are members of the public.

0:04:270:04:33

A number of them apparently bought the News of the World

0:04:330:04:36

at some stage in the last 20 years.

0:04:360:04:41

I hope he's going to ask them why.

0:04:410:04:43

I mean, when you look at the history of public hanging,

0:04:430:04:46

it only stopped because it was so popular, they couldn't

0:04:460:04:49

handle the crowds, not because there was revulsion

0:04:490:04:51

amongst the public - we don't want to see people being hung.

0:04:510:04:54

I remember being in a rough pub in Streatham about 25 years ago

0:04:540:04:58

and a fight broke out between two guys and it was exciting -

0:04:580:05:00

one was hitting the other guy - but I didn't demand a fight every time

0:05:000:05:04

I went into the pub just because it was exciting that time.

0:05:040:05:07

But that analogy would be that you go to the pub

0:05:070:05:10

and it says, "Fight Tonight Inside, 25p" and then you would go every Sunday.

0:05:100:05:13

They wouldn't do that in a pub because you are not allowed to do that.

0:05:130:05:17

-Are you not?

-No, you are not allowed to advertise fights in pubs.

0:05:170:05:21

To be fair, if you go to Glasgow, they do advertise a fight.

0:05:210:05:24

-It is like happy hour there, isn't it?

-Just before the bingo,

0:05:240:05:29

we have a wee bit of a cagefight and then everyone has a Babysham

0:05:290:05:32

and settles down. It is lovely. You should come up some time, they'd love you.

0:05:320:05:37

-I went to Govan once.

-Did you?

-I was trying to make a documentary.

0:05:400:05:45

I got out of the car, into the street and a bloke came straight up

0:05:450:05:48

and said, "You're out of your depth here, pal!"

0:05:480:05:50

Yes, Hugh Grant was indeed appearing this week.

0:05:560:05:59

He was surprised by the strength of the questioning from the counsel

0:05:590:06:03

to the inquiry. Does anybody know what Hugh had to say to him?

0:06:030:06:06

It was along the lines of,

0:06:060:06:08

"You spoke to me earlier and promised me a few straight deliveries,

0:06:080:06:11

-"but you're delivering nothing but googlies."

-He said...

0:06:110:06:14

That would be an invasion of privacy on a pretty massive scale.

0:06:210:06:25

Does anybody know what else we learnt from Hugh this week?

0:06:250:06:29

His middle name is Mungo.

0:06:290:06:32

-Is it?

-Yeah. Well, the world learnt that, I already knew it,

0:06:320:06:36

I'm obsessed with him.

0:06:360:06:38

-Is it the hair that does it?

-It is everything.

0:06:380:06:41

I really enjoy the work of our premier-like comic actor.

0:06:410:06:45

In a way, this is about the global recession.

0:06:470:06:49

More and more movie stars are doing television at the moment

0:06:490:06:53

and this is his way of doing it, I suppose.

0:06:530:06:55

Do you think a lot of agents are ringing up Lord Leveson saying,

0:06:550:06:59

"Can you get my boy on?"

0:06:590:07:01

As a huge fan of Hugh you may know that the mother of his baby

0:07:010:07:04

Tinglan Hong received a threatening message from a reporter

0:07:040:07:08

after Hugh Grant's appearance on Question Time.

0:07:080:07:10

Do you know what they said to him?

0:07:100:07:12

"If he doesn't be quiet, we are going to fund a sequel

0:07:120:07:16

"to Have You Heard About The Morgans?"

0:07:160:07:18

-You really are a fan!

-Yes.

0:07:210:07:23

I think they said, "Tell Hugh Grant to shut the fuck up."

0:07:230:07:26

That is exactly what they said.

0:07:260:07:28

Standards have slipped at the Telegraph, haven't they?

0:07:310:07:34

Whose good name has Hugh Grant dragged into this inquiry?

0:07:340:07:38

He made the scurrilous assertion that the Daily Mail

0:07:380:07:41

might have been involved in phone hacking,

0:07:410:07:45

which they refute entirely, I understand.

0:07:450:07:47

The Daily Mail utterly refute this.

0:07:470:07:50

The Daily Mail does not want to be associated in any way with phone hacking.

0:07:500:07:54

The last thing the Daily Mail wants

0:07:540:07:56

is for its name to appear in the same headline

0:07:560:07:59

as a phone hacking scandal.

0:07:590:08:02

-OK.

-Has that cleared that up?

-Next week, Dirty Dan's Downton Scandal!

0:08:020:08:07

While the inquiry into the press intrusion has been going on,

0:08:070:08:11

what have certain idiots on Twitter been doing?

0:08:110:08:14

Using it.

0:08:140:08:16

There was a particular person who attracted their attention.

0:08:160:08:20

-The woman on the left.

-Indeed, the woman on the left -

0:08:200:08:23

Carine Patry Hoskins, she's the junior counsel to the inquiry.

0:08:230:08:26

She was apparently listening intently to Hugh Grant as he testified.

0:08:260:08:30

Why on earth would a lawyer want to do that in court?

0:08:300:08:34

But you used to be a lawyer, didn't you?

0:08:340:08:36

No, that's a misnomer.

0:08:360:08:38

I tried a couple of court cases, but they found out after a while.

0:08:380:08:42

I'm sorry, you were talking...

0:08:420:08:44

It was slightly distressing because the woman on the left,

0:08:440:08:47

she went to Glasgow University as I did,

0:08:470:08:50

I made me feel quite unwell that the person who stayed in law

0:08:500:08:53

had a greater televisual presence than I did.

0:08:530:08:55

Also we heard from Steve Coogan.

0:08:550:08:57

Did anybody hear any of the methods the News of the World used to get stories on him?

0:08:570:09:01

They interviewed him, I gather. It is pretty underhand.

0:09:010:09:05

Yes, it all seemed quite above board.

0:09:050:09:08

Showbiz reporter and casual friend of Coogan's Raj Singh rang him up

0:09:080:09:11

to tell him the News of the World had a kiss-and-tell story on him.

0:09:110:09:14

If he confirmed some of the less salacious details,

0:09:140:09:17

the paper would keep the more lurid details out of the paper.

0:09:170:09:20

-So then what happened?

-They didn't.

0:09:200:09:22

-They put them all in.

-According to Coogan...

0:09:220:09:24

Thank God Andy Coulson never went on to hold a position of trust.

0:09:320:09:35

How did Coogan describe the behaviour of the News of the World?

0:09:370:09:40

Disappointing.

0:09:400:09:42

-Excellent.

-He described it as...

0:09:420:09:46

A-ha!

0:09:500:09:53

Coogan claimed he had never entered a Faustian pact with the tabloids.

0:09:560:10:00

-What did he mean by that?

-A pact with the devil.

0:10:000:10:02

Just because he is a public figure doesn't mean he has no private life.

0:10:020:10:07

Indeed. Most tabloid reporters thought Faustian Pact

0:10:070:10:10

was Manchester City's new striker.

0:10:100:10:14

Did anybody read anything about other cast members

0:10:140:10:17

in the phone-hacking scandal this week?

0:10:170:10:20

Rebekah Wade, the former editor of the News of the World and The Sun

0:10:200:10:24

is having a baby.

0:10:240:10:26

But it's through a surrogate and she's asked for privacy.

0:10:260:10:30

That's correct. She's expecting a baby via a surrogate mother

0:10:310:10:35

or as The Sun might have put it...

0:10:350:10:36

APPLAUSE

0:10:400:10:42

We're not the only country

0:10:450:10:47

trying to impose higher standards in public life.

0:10:470:10:50

What are they trying to do in Pakistan?

0:10:500:10:53

Going to censor the use of certain words in text messages.

0:10:530:10:56

That's right. There is a committee that's drawn up a list

0:10:560:10:59

of over a thousand offensive and sexual words to be banned.

0:10:590:11:02

Does anybody know any of them? A bonus point if you know the Urdu.

0:11:020:11:05

Just on bonus point for that? That seems pretty mean.

0:11:090:11:12

We don't know. Give us the top thousand.

0:11:120:11:14

I can give you some of them.

0:11:140:11:16

Flogging the dolphin?! Never heard of that.

0:11:270:11:31

This is the inquiry into newspaper standards. The Leveson Inquiry heard

0:11:310:11:35

evidence that on a number of occasions, News of the World

0:11:350:11:39

journalists went through Steve Coogan's bins. In fact they still do

0:11:390:11:42

but nowadays they're scavenging for food.

0:11:420:11:45

At the inquiry, Sheryl Gascoigne revealed the press had made

0:11:450:11:48

inaccurate claims about the size of her divorce settlement,

0:11:480:11:51

saying the coverage was "hurtful, inaccurate and untrue".

0:11:510:11:55

Coincidentally, also the motto of the News of the World.

0:11:550:11:58

Ian and Miles, take a look at this.

0:11:590:12:02

That's Ed Balls wiping away a tear.

0:12:020:12:03

That is Eric Knowles and I can't remember the woman's name.

0:12:030:12:07

-That is the Health Secretary.

-Is he on Antiques' Roadshow now?

0:12:070:12:11

-A Northern Rock customer. There we are, that's...

-Gaddafi.

0:12:110:12:15

Oh no, it isn't.

0:12:180:12:20

-The big one is Ed Balls, he's got a human side.

-Yes.

-And he weeps.

0:12:200:12:25

When he watches Ed Miliband in the House of Commons,

0:12:250:12:28

he just cries.

0:12:280:12:30

-He weeps when he's watching Antiques' Roadshow.

-Of course.

0:12:300:12:34

When I read about it, it said the bit he found really extraordinary

0:12:340:12:38

was when someone comes in and they found an heirloom

0:12:380:12:41

that is worth a huge amount of money. Then he remembered he was

0:12:410:12:44

meant to be a member of the Labour Party. And he said,

0:12:440:12:47

"But they think - oh, it's worth more to me than all that money,

0:12:470:12:50

"so I won't sell it." And that's what makes him cry.

0:12:500:12:53

He also weeps at The Sound Of Music.

0:12:560:12:58

-Again, it was interesting...

-The film or just any musical?

0:12:580:13:03

That would be an incredible handicap, wouldn't it?

0:13:030:13:07

He weeps at the bit where the Baroness is brought back

0:13:070:13:11

to the house by the Admiral, whatever he is,

0:13:110:13:14

and the children perform the song. Why is that emotional?

0:13:140:13:18

It is incredibly moving.

0:13:180:13:20

Maybe it is something in his childhood,

0:13:200:13:24

-maybe it's a repressed memory.

-Something in his youthful childhood?!

0:13:240:13:29

He spent his gap-year nannying in Nazi-occupied...

0:13:290:13:34

Apparently Nick Griffin also cries when he watches The Sound of Music,

0:13:360:13:40

that is only because the Nazis lose at the end.

0:13:400:13:42

We also found out that Ed's favourite song to sing at karaoke parties is?

0:13:440:13:49

It's My Party And I'll Cry If I Want To!

0:13:490:13:52

Intergalactic by the Beastie Boys.

0:13:520:13:55

-It is close.

-Was it Russ Abbott's Atmosphere?

0:13:550:13:59

It was...

0:13:590:14:01

The other news in that montage?

0:14:050:14:08

Branson's taken over a failing bank.

0:14:080:14:10

Northern Rock was bankrupt and now Branson has taken it over.

0:14:100:14:14

Except not all of it. He's taken over the bit that's called

0:14:140:14:18

a good bank and he's bought that but £21 billion of debt remains

0:14:180:14:23

with the taxpayer. So a good bargain for us(!)

0:14:230:14:26

And he got it £400 million cheaper than we paid for the good bit,

0:14:260:14:31

so he is laughing, all the way to his bank.

0:14:310:14:35

Yes, according to the Times,

0:14:360:14:39

the Government is accepting in part payment an "IOU" of £150 million.

0:14:390:14:43

Since when did the Government start accepting "IOUs"?!

0:14:430:14:46

I might try it myself. I've had a decent year, but you know how it is!

0:14:460:14:50

Is Branson taking over the whole of Northern Rock?

0:14:540:14:56

-You sort of answered this already.

-No, I don't think he is.

0:14:560:15:01

I reckon we are going to end up still owning £21 billion worth of debt.

0:15:010:15:06

I am bloody livid about it, Dan. Try getting me off this topic!

0:15:060:15:12

Before we go any further, shall we cheer ourselves up

0:15:160:15:20

with a picture of Teresa May from the Telegraph on Wednesday?

0:15:200:15:23

Lovely! Fantastic!

0:15:230:15:26

Anyone who can pull a face like that can't be all bad.

0:15:260:15:30

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has been popping up everywhere this week.

0:15:300:15:34

What's he been up to?

0:15:340:15:35

There's a scheme of putting screens by hospital beds and you're ill,

0:15:350:15:39

you're not happy and his face comes up on the screen.

0:15:390:15:44

And I think he says, "Your custom is very important to us.

0:15:440:15:49

"I'm sorry about the delay in your operation, or treatment..."

0:15:490:15:53

-and then he plays Vivaldi.

-And table tennis! Fantastic.

0:15:530:16:00

He's done a video to be shown on screens above the beds in hospitals.

0:16:000:16:03

The problem is it is on a three-minute loop

0:16:030:16:05

and it is driving people bonkers.

0:16:050:16:08

You can turn him off, does anybody know how?

0:16:080:16:11

-If you pay, that is the thing. If you...

-What?!

0:16:110:16:15

It's the hospital entertainment system and you have to pay £5

0:16:150:16:19

to get access to re-runs of Casualty, which is all they show.

0:16:190:16:25

And if you don't pay the £5,

0:16:250:16:28

then you get Andrew Lansley on a loop saying, "Hello, thanks for coming."

0:16:280:16:32

Absolutely right. The Independent pointed out...

0:16:320:16:36

As if they haven't suffered enough. They went on...

0:16:430:16:47

Does anybody know what the message to patients says?

0:17:010:17:05

Hurry up and die, there's a queue? I am from another planet.

0:17:050:17:11

I have access to your life-support machine.

-Has he got hypnotic eyes?

-Yes.

0:17:190:17:21

What scheme has Eric Pickles announced this week?

0:17:300:17:35

Eat the unemployed?

0:17:350:17:36

Bring a quiche to work day?

0:17:410:17:43

He's got the smallest features on a human face since time began.

0:17:430:17:47

Eric Pickles has announced a scheme to set up a curry college,

0:17:520:17:56

to teach British chefs how to cook curry.

0:17:560:17:58

It's an ambitious scheme but the Government's confident they can deliver,

0:17:580:18:01

if you are within a three-mile radius.

0:18:010:18:03

-Turning to the House of Lords finally.

-Yeah, great! Get stuck in!

0:18:060:18:11

-House of Lords, yeah!

-How did the noble lady Baroness Trumpington

0:18:110:18:15

distinguish herself in the chamber recently?

0:18:150:18:18

She flicked a V sign.

0:18:180:18:20

-She's 80 something, isn't she?

-Yes.

0:18:200:18:21

Lord King made a reference to her age during a speech and she responded by doing this...

0:18:210:18:26

I think he said she's 84 and she said, "No, two."

0:18:320:18:35

At the college, chefs will learn all the necessary skills

0:18:380:18:41

from combining the perfect mix of spices to create

0:18:410:18:43

a mouth-watering balti to chucking some unnecessary salad

0:18:430:18:46

into a warm plastic bag.

0:18:460:18:49

This was the Government selling of Northern Rock to Virgin Money.

0:18:490:18:52

After selling Northern Rock at a loss of £400 million,

0:18:520:18:55

George Osborne described it as...

0:18:550:18:57

"The best possible deal," which raises two questions.

0:18:570:19:01

What would constitute a worst deal?

0:19:010:19:03

And, George, can I interest you in some magic beans?

0:19:030:19:06

NHS patients have been complaining that hospital TVs

0:19:060:19:10

are running a patronising message from Andrew Lansley on a continuous loop.

0:19:100:19:14

This has led to some terrible mistakes with patients crying out,

0:19:140:19:18

"I can't take it any more, just switch the machine off!"

0:19:180:19:20

APPLAUSE

0:19:200:19:23

And so to Round Two, the Cloche of News.

0:19:260:19:30

Carson the Butler will lift the cloche revealing an item or items

0:19:300:19:34

relating to a news story of the week. Finger on buzzers.

0:19:340:19:38

BUZZER Was this the film of the gentleman

0:19:400:19:44

chasing his dog, Benton?

0:19:440:19:48

A dog was chasing deer and he was just screaming, "Benton! Benton!"

0:19:480:19:53

He's not come forward, but some youth was filming it

0:19:530:19:56

on his mobile telephone device

0:19:560:19:59

and it's got over one million hits on YouTube?

0:19:590:20:01

-Is the right answer.

-Is that the right answer?!

0:20:010:20:05

APPLAUSE

0:20:050:20:09

Shall we have a look at internet sensation Benton?

0:20:090:20:12

If we don't, I will fight anybody who says we can't!

0:20:120:20:15

Benton! Benton!

0:20:150:20:18

Benton! Benton! BENTON!

0:20:180:20:22

BENTON! BENTON! BENTON!

0:20:220:20:30

Oh Jesus Christ! BENTON! LAUGHTER

0:20:310:20:35

APPLAUSE

0:20:380:20:40

-Following this, Benton went viral and he and...

-Why?!

0:20:450:20:50

-He and Jesus Christ...

-Why would people think that's entertaining?

0:20:500:20:54

Totally out of focus camera shot, deer in the background,

0:20:560:21:00

some bloke shouting "Benton!" And millions have watched it?

0:21:000:21:04

I'm in the wrong business.

0:21:040:21:05

Do we know what the latest controversy about Benton is?

0:21:050:21:09

-He's a glove puppet!

-His real name is Fenton.

0:21:090:21:12

Is absolutely right.

0:21:120:21:15

No!

0:21:150:21:18

-How do you know this?

-I only know this cos it appears in newspapers.

0:21:200:21:24

Does anybody know what the Sun's headline for the Benton story was?

0:21:240:21:28

Humanity Reaches Bottom Of The Barrel?

0:21:280:21:33

We are all doomed.

0:21:360:21:38

Would the last person to leave the planet tell Fenton?

0:21:380:21:41

Human Beings Duped Into Watching Crap on New Invention.

0:21:450:21:49

It was, "Calm down deer!"

0:21:510:21:52

AUDIENCE GROAN

0:21:520:21:54

-The Sun ended the report...

-This just gets worse and worse!

0:21:550:21:58

-Is there no piece of redeeming quality in this story, anywhere?

-No!

0:21:580:22:02

The Sun ended its report, saying:

0:22:020:22:04

And the good news is they have tracked down Benton and his owner

0:22:060:22:09

and the dog has been destroyed.

0:22:090:22:12

Only joking, animal lovers.

0:22:120:22:14

That was the best bit!

0:22:140:22:16

People are now selling t-shirts with the picture of Benton.

0:22:170:22:23

-Are people buying them?

-I have only bought three!

0:22:230:22:26

So somebody was filming it, thinking,

0:22:280:22:30

"I can't believe the stuff I'm getting here! This is magical!"

0:22:300:22:33

I mean, why watch David Attenborough, when you've got THAT?!

0:22:330:22:36

MIMICS DAVID ATTENBOROUGH: "Fenton, is here, in Richmond Park.

0:22:360:22:41

"The deer are over there,

0:22:410:22:44

"the mobile phone man is there,

0:22:440:22:46

"and the internet...is everywhere."

0:22:460:22:49

Pete Wedderburn, the vet, helpfully explained that:

0:22:520:22:55

Thanks very much, Pete(!)

0:23:010:23:03

In other animal news, you'll be pleased to hear, Paul...

Pigeon Takes Off From Roof!

0:23:090:23:13

With no apparent motive.

0:23:130:23:15

This is all that is going to be left of the press after this inquiry!

0:23:150:23:18

Animal stories!

0:23:180:23:20

Can anyone tell me what Gavin, the world's most sarcastic gorilla,

0:23:210:23:25

has been up to this week?

0:23:250:23:26

Did he shove a banana up Barry Watson?

0:23:320:23:36

Did he win a contest?

0:23:360:23:37

Who judged him the most sarcastic gorilla?

0:23:370:23:40

Were there hundreds of them turning up? Going, "Yeah(!)"

0:23:400:23:44

Gavin lives in Jerusalem Zoo. According to the Metro:

0:23:440:23:47

It's not all violence and sarcasm in the animal world.

0:24:050:24:08

Who has been showing a more artistic side, this week?

0:24:080:24:11

Oh, God!

0:24:110:24:14

-A spaniel has opened a watercolour exhibition.

-Yes. Exactly.

0:24:140:24:17

A dachshund has perfected an impression of Charles Dance.

0:24:170:24:21

"How do you do?

0:24:220:24:24

"Any dinner?"

0:24:240:24:26

No. This artistic animal is Gary the Gerbil Ballerina.

0:24:270:24:31

Oh, don't say we're going to be looking

0:24:340:24:36

at a picture of a gerbil wearing a tutu!

0:24:360:24:38

We are!

0:24:380:24:40

Let's see Gary in action.

0:24:400:24:42

He's not dancing!

0:24:520:24:54

SUSAN: He's just hungry!

0:24:560:24:57

The rest of the clip

0:24:590:25:00

does get a bit distressing after that, though.

0:25:000:25:03

We can't show you the end of it, but it goes,

0:25:030:25:05

"Benton, Benton, Jesus Christ, Benton."

0:25:050:25:08

This is Benton the dog who became an internet hit

0:25:130:25:16

after chasing deer in Richmond Park.

0:25:160:25:19

The next time Benton's owner visited the park,

0:25:190:25:21

he took no chances, left the dog at home and went on his bike.

0:25:210:25:23

Now that was worth seeing!

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

BELL

0:25:400:25:41

This is the cheapest sandwich you can possible make,

0:25:410:25:46

just bread with toast in the middle of it.

0:25:460:25:48

Is the right answer.

0:25:480:25:50

This is the news that the toast sandwich has been declared

0:25:500:25:53

the most economical meal possible

0:25:530:25:55

in these austere times.

0:25:550:25:57

How much does the toast sandwich cost to assemble?

0:25:570:25:59

8 pence. About 8 pence, or something like that.

0:25:590:26:02

It may be by now, I have 7.5 pence.

0:26:020:26:04

There's cutlery and stuff you need, presumably.

0:26:070:26:10

-You don't need anything.

-You need a toaster!

0:26:100:26:12

Who can get a toaster for 7.5p?

0:26:120:26:14

How would you go about making a toast sandwich, Miles?

0:26:140:26:17

A toast sandwich? Uh, well, I would...

0:26:170:26:19

bake some bread.

0:26:190:26:21

Uh, and then I would slice it,

0:26:210:26:25

then I would... It's a bread sandwich, isn't it?

0:26:250:26:28

So there's no toast involved?

0:26:280:26:31

Just three slices of bread in a pile.

0:26:310:26:34

I wouldn't even turn the Dualit on.

0:26:360:26:39

Who exactly has been pushing this culinary delight?

0:26:420:26:45

Sir Compton MacKenzie, author of Whisky Galore?

0:26:470:26:51

-Uh, no...

-No? Not him?

0:26:510:26:52

According to the Mail the recipe has been unveiled by the:

0:26:520:26:55

Also known as the Ministry of Yum.

0:26:570:27:00

How confident is the Royal Society

0:27:000:27:02

that they've found the most economical lunch?

0:27:020:27:04

Extremely confident. They're boasting about it.

0:27:040:27:06

"We have found the most economical lunch", they say.

0:27:060:27:09

They are:

What we used to eat at school was a sugar sandwich.

0:27:140:27:17

Deprived youth(!)

0:27:170:27:19

To be fair, the sugar did come from your own plantation.

0:27:190:27:22

-Delicious.

-An open butter sandwich.

0:27:260:27:30

That's just one... No toast. Toasting is too expensive.

0:27:300:27:33

One piece of bread, with butter on it.

0:27:330:27:37

It's an open bread sandwich.

0:27:370:27:38

It's bread. Bread!

0:27:380:27:41

Flour.

0:27:410:27:43

A spoonful of flour.

0:27:430:27:44

Put it in your mouth then just take some water out of the tap.

0:27:440:27:47

Rainwater is cheaper.

0:27:470:27:49

The Guardian couldn't beat them on price

0:27:490:27:52

but did suggest a far superior culinary experience of:

0:27:520:27:55

Ah, the devils!

0:27:580:28:00

-When did the society...

-The Brevilles!

0:28:010:28:04

-Nice.

-Very good.

0:28:040:28:05

-I don't know.

-Product placement, or something.

0:28:050:28:09

-Is it?

-I don't know.

0:28:090:28:10

There are other toastie makers available.

0:28:100:28:12

I've got a Dualit one. It's excellent.

0:28:140:28:15

That's twice you've got them in.

0:28:170:28:19

They make very good stuff.

0:28:190:28:22

Where did the Royal Society get this recipe from?

0:28:220:28:25

An old austerity book. Er...How We Ate In The 1850s.

0:28:250:28:29

It was from none other than the woman who gave us the:

0:28:290:28:31

Mrs Beaton. In her recipe book she described the toast sandwich as:

0:28:330:28:36

Toast fans will be pleased to hear

0:28:410:28:43

Mrs Beaton had more in her toast range.

0:28:430:28:46

She also came up with:

0:28:460:28:48

Yes, it's a:

0:28:480:28:50

Although Mrs Beaton did take pains to point out:

In other health-related news,

0:29:030:29:06

what has the NHS introduced to help battle the obesity epidemic?

0:29:060:29:10

A tray that tells you when you've had enough to eat.

0:29:100:29:14

-A talking plate?

-Yeah.

-It is.

0:29:140:29:16

The plate costs £1,500. It's known as the Mandometer.

0:29:160:29:19

Anybody know how it works?

0:29:190:29:21

It tells you when you've eaten too much, eaten too quickly.

0:29:210:29:24

"Slow down. Do not eat so fast.

0:29:240:29:26

"Put down the potato.

0:29:260:29:28

"You must not eat any more.

0:29:280:29:30

"Have more cabbage.

0:29:300:29:32

"Chew your food.

0:29:320:29:34

"Don't eat plate."

0:29:340:29:36

Stuff like that.

0:29:360:29:39

More or less.

0:29:390:29:40

"Have you seen the internet today?

0:29:400:29:42

"Amateur video-cam footage on.

0:29:440:29:48

"End of message."

0:29:500:29:51

It's quite simple. The plate weighs the food and monitors the rate

0:29:540:29:58

at which it disappears.

0:29:580:29:59

A screen shows graphics of the food disappearing at a healthy speed

0:29:590:30:02

and compares it with the fatso's actual rate.

0:30:020:30:06

If you took the potato off and put it back again would it assume

0:30:060:30:09

you were being sick? "Are you bulimic?"

0:30:090:30:12

This is the austerity sandwich.

0:30:120:30:14

Consisting of just three slices of bread the toast sandwich costs 7.5p,

0:30:140:30:18

or, if you can't be bothered to make it yourself,

0:30:180:30:21

Pret A Manger do a great one for £3.95.

Larry the cat has been thrown out of Downing Street for joining the BNP.

0:30:590:31:04

I think I have had a tweet from the Downing Street cat

0:31:040:31:07

which, again, will pile upon the fact

0:31:070:31:09

that people think I'm an incredibly sad cat lady - and I am.

I get tweets from other cats!

0:31:110:31:14

I dress my cats up, in more than that bow tie.

You have to make an effort.

0:31:170:31:19

-How do you dress the cats up?

-Well...!

0:31:190:31:22

Well, it depends. We have themed days.

If you cut the fingers off gloves

0:31:250:31:28

they make leg warmers for Fame Day.

0:31:280:31:31

And then, you've got to be careful if you make any trousers,

0:31:310:31:35

cats don't have hips, so you have to make braces.

0:31:350:31:38

Otherwise they will slide off.

0:31:380:31:41

There is nothing worse than a wee cat whose trousers are falling off!

0:31:410:31:45

I wouldn't say nothing worse! It's up there, certainly.

0:31:470:31:51

-Is it mice?

-It is something to do with sleep.

Larry the cat is meant to be in Downing Street

0:31:540:31:58

to get mice.

But he is asleep all the time.

0:31:590:32:01

When Edward Heath was awake, was he always catching mice?

I better tell you. They have all fallen asleep when they shouldn't,

0:33:550:33:57

Did he pick it up with his bare hands and...

0:33:570:34:01

Like Putin? That is how it works in Russia.

0:34:010:34:05

Big pictures of Putin killing deer.

0:34:050:34:08

Over here, Cameron, "Oh it's a mouse!"

0:34:080:34:10

Putin! Putin! Oh, Jesus Christ! Putin!

0:34:110:34:16

According to the Telegraph:

0:34:200:34:23

He missed, obviously.

0:34:290:34:32

He said, "It wasn't a target, it was an aspiration!"

0:34:320:34:35

According to the Mail on Sunday, he actually said:

0:34:380:34:40

That is what the Queen said to Edward Heath?

0:34:500:34:53

According to the Sun, Larry is too tired to catch mice

0:34:580:35:01

after spending most of his time with another cat called Masie

0:35:010:35:04

whose owner insists:

0:35:040:35:07

Although Maisie has an official looking business card

0:35:070:35:09

with "advisor to Larry" printed on it.

0:35:090:35:13

Time for the Missing Words round.

0:35:140:35:16

This week it features as guest publication The Chap,

0:35:160:35:19

a journal for the modern gentleman.

0:35:190:35:22

We start with:

0:35:220:35:23

MILES: One woman musical version of Titus Andronicus.

0:35:270:35:30

Scarf and hotpants combo.

0:35:300:35:34

Geordie accent.

0:35:370:35:39

MILES: Chest wig.

0:35:400:35:42

-It is tattoo just won't come off.

-She had a henna tattoo.

0:35:440:35:48

The Duchess of Cornwall had a temporary henna tattoo

0:35:480:35:51

that she can't scrub off.

0:35:510:35:53

According to the Daily Mail one suggested remedy is to:

0:35:530:35:56

As if Charles' footman doesn't have enough to do!

0:35:560:35:59

Next:

0:36:000:36:02

MILES: Bomb-making equipment and a healthy disregard for the law.

0:36:050:36:08

An even tempered approach to life and a winning eye for the ladies.

0:36:080:36:13

They still talk in Croydon of that night

0:36:260:36:28

Sir Anthony Hopkins lost his voice and I gave them my Widow Twankey.

0:36:280:36:31

Says, "Yes I f...ing do!"

0:36:350:36:39

Character work, Mr Hislop?

0:36:410:36:43

Watch out, Dan!

0:36:440:36:46

-He's auditioning!

-The next series of Downton!

0:36:460:36:50

This Heidi Withers,

0:36:550:36:56

described by her future mother-in-law

0:36:560:36:58

as "staggeringly uncouth" in an email that went viral,

0:36:580:37:01

has got her own back by appearing in Country Life's famous:

0:37:010:37:04

Zara Phillips, whose husband appeared

0:37:070:37:09

in the 'Boys with dwarves' section.

0:37:090:37:12

Keith Vaz is Jazz!

0:37:150:37:17

MILES: Secretly Welsh.

0:37:180:37:21

Openly Welsh!

0:37:210:37:22

Actually, that's not really a headline,

0:37:270:37:30

just some graffiti on a van somebody kindly sent in.

0:37:300:37:32

Here it is.

0:37:320:37:34

So if I send in pictures of me and the cats next week, that'll make it?

0:37:390:37:42

Absolutely.

0:37:420:37:44

Oh! We could do a Downton Abbey special!

0:37:440:37:46

Yes!

0:37:460:37:48

I don't know if I can make a wee wheelchair but I'll try my best!

0:37:480:37:51

Tissue box, some wheels!

0:37:540:37:56

Halfway through, the cat springs out of it!

0:37:560:38:00

"I got a tingling in my whiskers!"

0:38:000:38:02

The London Philharmonic Orchestra?

0:38:070:38:09

A tiny cravat.

0:38:100:38:12

It's not at all close.

0:38:140:38:16

A big cravat.

0:38:160:38:17

It is in fact:

0:38:170:38:20

This is Chantel Faill, who had an accident

0:38:220:38:25

with a pool cue, back in 1999,

0:38:250:38:27

after the incident she went to casualty,

0:38:270:38:29

but doctors just gave her two free shots.

0:38:290:38:31

Next...

0:38:390:38:41

"I wouldn't go in there for a bit."

0:38:450:38:47

SUSAN: What people usually say when they come out of the toilet now

0:38:510:38:54

is, "those Dyson airblades really are much better."

0:38:540:38:57

I think they're very unsettling.

0:38:580:39:00

-Do you?

-But it's fantastic, the noise.

0:39:000:39:03

"Wuuuuh!"

0:39:030:39:04

No! It sort of makes the back of your hands look all scrotum-y!

0:39:040:39:09

You're using the wrong kind of soap.

0:39:110:39:13

This is David Beckham, who bumped into the star in a toilet in LA.

0:39:170:39:20

To Beckham's further surprise

0:39:200:39:21

Jack then went over to the condom machine and announced,

0:39:210:39:24

"Heeeeere's Johnny!"

0:39:240:39:25

-They are seven foot long.

-Very close.

-They go like that. "Pah!"

0:39:330:39:37

Close. They are:

0:39:370:39:40

This is from a celebration of facial hair in The Chap magazine.

0:39:420:39:45

Alf Garrald and his cheek hedgehogs.

0:39:450:39:47

Anybody else think he might smoke to the right?

0:39:470:39:50

And finally:

0:39:540:39:55

Question Time.

0:39:580:39:59

Wife.

0:40:010:40:03

It is in fact:

0:40:060:40:07

And here is said tomato.

0:40:090:40:10

The gardener could make some Hitler tomato ketchup

0:40:140:40:17

and market it alongside Eva Braun sauce.

0:40:170:40:20

AUDIENCE GROAN

0:40:200:40:22

The final scores are: Ian and Miles have two,

0:40:220:40:25

but Paul and Susan are the winners with five.

0:40:250:40:27

APPLAUSE

0:40:270:40:31

Before we go, there is time for the Caption Competition.

0:40:330:40:37

Snowman melts and reveals hidden identity!

0:40:370:40:40

MILES: Sarge, we just thought this would be quicker

0:40:430:40:45

than turning the place upside-down!

0:40:450:40:48

On which note we say thank you to our panellists,

0:40:520:40:54

Ian Hislop and Miles Jupp, Paul Merton and Susan Calman.

0:40:540:40:57

I leave you with news that at a sports meeting at Crystal Palace,

0:40:570:41:00

organisers admit it was a mistake

0:41:000:41:02

to hold the women's 800 metres at the same time as the shooting!

0:41:020:41:06

After his eye operation is a complete success,

0:41:100:41:13

the paparazzi catch Pudsey Bear celebrating with his nurse.

0:41:130:41:16

And in Windsor, the Queen steadfastly refuses

0:41:220:41:25

to fall a second time for Prince Philip's pull my finger routine.

0:41:250:41:28

Good night.
