If you must talk about something that isn't about grue slaying, adventuring or even drinking some of that tasty rye, then do it here.

The article may be making fun of it, but I'll admit it to you: I want to be able to watch this regularly. The host even acts like a parser.

I'd love to be able to watch this on TV on a regular basis. I found a few more of these on YouTube.

I have some friends in Scotland and England that I've mentioned this to now, and their opinion of the show seems to be that it's a scam to take advantage of drunken insomniacs or something. Honestly, though, I kind of expect it to be that, what with it being a pay-by-the-minute phone line.

Honestly, though? I think I'd still do it. If I ever got a couple hundred bucks saved up, I'd probably call some night. I mean, that's roughly what you'd do with a casino, right? Go in expecting to lose, basically paying for the "entertainment" of just being there, and knowing there's a slim chance for a payout at the end, right?

Wait, this is/was a real call-in show? I thought it was a sketch on a comedy show. Being real makes this so much better!

Yep, this is a real-live, honest to goodness call-in show featuring an actual human who acts like a parser as a host. :-)

-EDIT-

Actually...actually, now that I look at it again, everyone is calling it a sketch on something called "Limmy's Show" on Youtube. Methinks my friend in England didn't actually know what they were talking about when they said it was a scam.
