Episode #35: Politically Memetastic

Well we got every other meme into the podcast, you dont think we would leave out the Y U NO guy did you?

I don’t want to tell you how im feeling….sorry, I have that damn Rick Astley song stuck in my head as it has been a podcast full of meme’s.

From dramatic chipmunk to all your base, I would be surprised if we missed one. when were not wasting time on old meme’s we managed to get a bit of gaming news filled in from the free-to-play conversion of Star Trek Online to the beta of Diablo III, we even found time for a bit of piss-taking at Fox News expense.

As always links to almost all the topics covered are after the jump.

Also as always we are still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing.

Also for while now listeners have been asking for a way to buy us a beer and help us get drunk for their amusement, well now we have found a way. We have set up an Amazon wish list full of beer and sugary things that you can send to us (trust us were just as funny hyper as drunk). Anyone that does so can send any message with their beer and we will say it in the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing
