Kevin isn’t a very good loser.

As the title literally says, I was the guest on this week’s Philistine Radio, despite my internet connection’s best efforts to ruin it. Among the topics discussed are the Titanic II and what would happen if you put your hand in the LHC.
Massive thanks to Steven and Ali for having me on the show.
A few weeks ago I wrote about my brief stint working for a charity and how I wasn’t cut out for it. Luckily enough I was able to get two other jobs that didn’t carry the burden of saving children’s lives. Always a bonus. On alternating days I’d work for a comedy club, selling tickets to tourists in Times Square, and for the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium, handing out discount flyers.
There was a minor bomb scare in Times Square over the summer and of course David Reilly was in the middle of it.
To start, in case anyone is unfamiliar with Times Square, here are a few facts, so everyone is up to speed.
- Times Square is famous for its electric, neon and illuminated signs including Coca-Cola, Toshiba and the curved NASDAQ sign. Each of these signs uses more electricity annually than at least 9 former Soviet states.
- Every New Year’s Eve, approximately one million people gather in Times Square to watch the famous dropping of the ball. Indigenous New Yorkers believe that if the ball fails to drop all males born over the following year will be born with undescended testicles.
- Formerly named Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in April 1904 after Lord Alfred Times. The legendary patron of the area’s many theatres and brothels passed away the previous November in an unfortunate accident involving a prostitute, a kite and 15 quarts of Doc. Von Vigour’s Virility Tonic. These items were later referenced in the closing segment of an episode of “Kenan & Kel” in 1999.
