Who has just had his towel nicked at the swimming pool.

Member Member Note Scott Bennett not in audience asked HZ: How do you feel about your flat being on BBC 2’s Jonathan Meades documentary on brutalism?
Who would you have sex with if you had a time-travelling penis?
OM: It’s a genital drone basically, isn’t it? It’s a bit like doing my British Forces gadget corresponding. If I had a genital drone who would I got for? I think Queen Elizabeth I. Partly because of the virgin thing, partly because I could wipe it on the ruff. There is a brilliant conspiracy thrilled where Queen Elizabeth I dies of AIDS. Completely changed the course of history and how she seemed.
HZ: I think the trouble is that you’re running a high risk of getting syphilis. What would happen in a film is that the time travelling mechanism went wrong and your genitals got stuck in the past and they couldn’t find their way home.
Would you rather have a tit that dispensed talcum powder or a finger that can travel through time?
HZ: What’s talcum powder used for nowadays apart from when you’re at a murder mystery making your hair grey? [I would go for finger.]
OM: I’ll tell you what though, guaranteed booking on Lorraine with that though, Richard. You want to find your way back on? I’ve got a breast that dispenses bathroom product is a guaranteed. I’d go finger.
If you were going to go on Dragon’s Den, what would you pitch on Dragon’s Den?
HZ: We’re going to put to sleep the dogs you’ve given just for Christmas. I think I would pitch gyms for adults that are just like kids’ playground. I think that people would like that.
OM: I always have these ideas but now you’ve put me on the spot. But even though I don’t know what the idea is, I know that I would want Deborah and Peter going in 50% each. No other combination of dragons is worth it. That new one, Piers Linney, are you joking? Prove yourself. Don;t just expect me to give you 30% of my company. No one knows who you are. Don’t just sit there twiddling your ring, looking all serious.
If you had to have sex with an animal – if you had to – what animal would you have sex with, if you had to?
OM: Providing that no one would get hurt, I think mountain bear is what I would go with. Female mountain bear. A mountain bear that looks like it could have edited News of the World, yes.
HZ: Stingray. Because they do mimic the feminine vulva anyway. I was going to go for the okapi because it’s like three animals in one, good value. I don’t want to share okapis with you. I want exclusive.
