What we really believe in, then, is that we don't want to watch Marley & Me, the piece of shit dogbound weepy with her out of Friends and him with the nose in it, shooting their labrador in the face with a blunderbuss. No way no how. A number of straws, clearly, needed to be clutched at.
One possible avenue for a get-out clause we discussed was that, like the French economy, Sexboat (1980) has now been downgraded to a mere 6.8 on IMDb.com. However, we'd already discussed the vagaries of the rating system and our intricate series of cut-off points and safeguards. Bugger.
But then, a godsend. Dotmund's mum's terminal illness took a turn for the worse. All celebrated wildly, as rogue elements came out of the woodwork and admitted to us that they may well have nobbled the previous vote in favour of Marley & Me, but that given the new circumstances, the most lachrymose film ever made is probably not what we all needed to see right now.
So, we have disregarded the results of the previous film vote. We could have moved down the line and watched the second-place choice, The Inbetweeners Movie, but as we all know from an actual referendum, Britain is morally opposed to the Alternate Vote electoral system. Plus Nick Clegg is a fucking cunt.
So, what will be the subject of our next podcast? I'm not sure. I considered the possibility of putting up a new vote, but then I realised you'd all abused your privileges and therefore needed to be punished. As such, I think we will pick. So if you don't like it, you only have yourselves to blame.
And the Greeks, for inventing democracy in the first place.
