Emergency Questions

Who do you consider the best of Jesus’s disciples?

God. Judas was one of them. *RH notes that Judas is not obscure enough.* Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. *Audience member states that these were not all disciples.* Weren’t they?

What is your favourite kind of non-human milk to drink?

Oh, cow. I had goat’s milk as a kid; you know, we tried all sorts of things. Goat’s milk is disgusting. So I’d get milk and all that, but goat’s milk – I don’t understand why anyone would have goat’s milk. *RH asks for MF’s opinion on nut-based milks.* I’m allergic to nuts. I’ve got anaphylaxis where fish and nuts are fatal, yeah. Oh, you could kill me with all sorts, if you hit me hard enough with it. Yeah, I’ve got an EpiPen. I’ve got two. *RH suggests that MF may need more than two EpiPens and gives possible scenarios.* Well obviously the great check and balance is me not eating the peanut butter sandwich. You can hand it to me but… Part of the problem is that allergies have become preferences, really. So some people say, “Oh, I’ve got an allergy to this or an allergy to that.” And they haven’t. It’s not going to kill them. I get lumped in with all those people. I am properly fucked. So don’t – I’m not being cool. I was allergic to stuff way before other people. When it was indie. Oh, fish is really severe. If that’s cooked near me it all just goes off, really. And I’ve never been… There’s an unmistakable – people I’m sure know – it’s like you’ve eaten nettles. You can feel it. I had some as a kid, so that’s how I found out I was allergic to fish, at my auntie’s house as a child and got rushed to the hospital. And I remember, I must have been about nine years-old, and my GP said to me – I used to go to the doctor’s a lot – and he said, “You know what, you’ve probably grown out of it now.” To a nine year-old. “Next time you have fish fingers at school, just try one.” The following day I got one mouthful and – *makes choking face and noises, then ambulance noises*. What incredible advice to a child.

Notes

MF does an impression of Donald Trump.

In this version of the favourite disciple question, it is framed as the guest only being allowed to select one of the more obscure disciples (not Peter, John, etc.).

RH describes Nottingham’s now defunct The Tales of Robin Hood as the best tourist attraction ever.
