Series 3 - Unheard Shenanigans and Extra Cheese Bits

With Series 3 all done and dusted Mum and Stacey are making plans for Series 4.  Whilst you're waiting why not enjoy some unheard bits from the last 12 episodes?  Mum talks about donkey cheese, moose cheese, guinea pig cheese... basically if it's an animal with nipples, Mum's gonna make cheese from it.  Not even Kipper is safe!  Stacey talks about penises (it's an occupational hazard) including the fish with a willy on his face; and a worm that can cut you in half.

S3-Ep.12 The Cheese Episode - In Which Mum Has To Fight Off A Frisky Mullet

In the last episode of the series Mum and Stacey talk about CHEESE!  Mum has all sorts of facts about cheese made from different animal milk, including camel cheese and reindeer cheese.  She also explains the difficulty involved in milking a guinea pig.  What happens if you try to tempt fish by putting cheese on your legs?  Only Mum has the answer.  Stacey plays the game "Cheese or Disease", and tells us about cheese related world records, including the world record for eating cheese under a car.  Kipper joins the ladies to talk about the controversial Twitter poll regarding which is the best cheese.  In unrelated news a man has a weird attraction to magnets.


We have a Cheese Related Music Fact from Carla, host of Number One Rerun Podcast and Theme Park Films Podcast.
