Things you have been slow to realise


#1762

New Donk City in Super Mario Odysessy is named after Donkey Kong. Genuinely thought they just chosen the word Donk because it sounded funny.


#1763

Chevrolet Chase


#1764

Chuck from Better Call Saul was in Spinal Tap.


#1765

Fucking hell, Scorpion, I already posted that in here!


#1766

Slow to realise that @Balonz already had the same realisation…


#1767

Similar to Bailey’s Irish Cream. They wanted a way of getting rid of surplus Irish dairy and wondered if they could put it in an alcoholic drink.

I must have heard this Utah Saints song on the radio 1000 times

I have listened to kate Bush’s Hounds of Love album many, many times

I have only just clocked that it;s Kate Bush sample on this Utah Saints song


#1769

The Utah Saints song that they just played on 6 Music?

If so, I too have heard it loads of times. Didn’t know about the Kate Bush sample until you posted.


#1770

yep

I just thought to myself “this sounds like Kate Bush” so googled it and it is (from the song Cloudbursting)

great story,

I;m very very bored


#1771

Cloudbusting innit


#1772

#1773

tbf, there are probably dozens of tracks that use samples that I didn’t even realise were samples


#1774

John Torode and Lisa Faulkner were dating?!

And now they’re engaged?

weird


#1775

Down on one knee, he looked up and said

Proposals don’t get tougher than this.


#1776

Dating for years since she was on the show. Hasn’t been a secret I don’t think.


#1777

I was aware of this only because I’ve had a massive crush on Lisa Faulkner since her Holby City days.


#1778

thought lisa faulkner was lisa kudrow
their names are too similar, imo


#1779

J2O is a pun of H2O.


#1780

You gonna keep your peace when they ask if anyone knows any reason why they shouldn’t be married?


#1781

Not sure if it fits the brief for this thread but noticed earlier that Ellen DeGeneres’s famous OSCAR SELFIE photo (think Bradley Cooper took it but, y’know) has Kevin Spacey in it. So I guess that’s the end of that.
