line of the day – ‘we need a Mott cam’

Basically GV could say to Mott – ‘this smells like Bruce Willis’ arse on a Friday’ and Mott would reply – ‘Yeah I get that’. Here it’s ‘sardines’ that GV bowls out there and the Mottster picks it up immediately! Comedy value very high

MUSIC: Sage Francis, mc chris, my sing-a-long playlist (crooners, Motown, older country, classic rock), and a Brit Pop mix for the driving times.
