The Kitchen Is On Fire

It's the 21st June, aka the Summer Solstice, aka the longest day of the year, aka the day James and Sam decide to show just how square they are. They ponder a remake of the Rock involving a terror threat at Goodwood Golf Course, as well as cartoon pornography, Believe by Cher, and the Pidgin 100 Menu Party. James apologises for being accidentally rude about a chef. Sam does a none too shabby vocoder impression. Are hippies really having more fun? Was James and Sam's She Loves You karaoke effort really the highlight of the Pidgin second birthday party? And would Nick Cage put in a performance as a plucky caddy? Find out the answer to these burning kitchens in this week's the Question Is On Fire.

Sam is scared of his wife and of Spiderman's genitals. James looks like Batfleck and is once more talking about umbilical cords. Classic, and classy, TKIOF vibes on show, in the show. Showbusiness! Know this.

James teaches everyone about hypno-birthing. Somehow this leads into talk of the Zapatistas, The Smashing Pumpkins and Adam Buxton. Unlikely bedfellows perhaps but what d'ye expect? Anyway, Sam is happy with his lot and James blanks a fan and Sting may or may not go to Pidgin for dinner......It's TKIOF, and you are welcome.

You thought you were safe? Free from these yapping dummies? Think again people. J-Razzle and the Sh'Dawg are back. Bringing their classic brand of babbling nonsense one more. Scary goats? Present and correct. Relentless namedropping? Of course. A long, some might say stupidly long, discussion of Dido's family tree? Yep. All this plus some deep confusion regarding Incas and Aztecs and James rubs his eye with some serious technique! You are welcome!

In the words of a dead drunk leather trouser wearing idiot; This is the end.

After one hundred episodes of sometimes inspired and more often utterly nonsensical idiocy, our dumb heroes stagger wheezing over the finish line. Did they put any effort into their swansong? What do you think? They die as they lived, unprepared, lost in digressions, pondering incredibly stupid animal based conundrums, their old friend Bane alongside them. Is there talk of an accidental B and Q swastika? Do they wonder for too long over what exactly a 'smoked chub' is? Does James score a hell of a goal from right midfield? Did Sam have a sad dream? There is, they do, he did and he did too. The Kitchen Is On Fire no more. Now it's just a steamy mouldering pile of ash and lukewarm water. Thank God for that.

In what could well be the penultimate ever episode of TKIOF Sam is wearing weird pants and James has been cooking a mixed grill. They discuss funny dads, a lot of drummers and ice-skating. There's an odd detour into Sam's fear of beavers and they both ponder on the current whereabouts of Gary Rhodes. Is this the end for the intrepid Pidgin boyz?....hold on tight.

James gets poisoned, Sam ponders on a grim public death. Salmon is cooked and eaten. Sam's wife does not rate aubergine which upsets both of our near enough legendary hosts. James has also been in Paris where he drank much wine and viewed much vintage pornography. Oh and Sam comes out swinging in favor of truffle oil. The Kitchen Is On Fire once again and it's getting if not hot, then at least uncomfortably steamy...

Dense treats, rat tails, poisons and the Ebola virus are all on the dummie's agenda this week. Sam struggles with his fame, James struggles to the cook the correct amount of eggs while drunk. Confusion reigns throughout TKIOFLand as to just what in all hell a 'tapir' looks like and there's another advert, this time from a friendly zookeeper! All this plus they profess their love and adoration for an incredibly beautiful man. Classic TKIOF vibes, standard TKIOF level of discourse.

This week the PidginBoyz (TM) babble on about Weetabix, Glastonbury and the rules of shaving. A German at a festival freaks out some people on drugs and Sam considers a pretty drastic lifestyle change. There's also another advert, a lot of talk about drilling through the very center of the earth and James's hair looks pretty damn good. Standard legendary vibes, non-standard levels of hilarity, it's TKIOF as per usual.

As TKIOF staggers blindly towards Episode 100....Sam is haunted by a jaunty elephant. James is wearing a cap. Young people are going to die and perhaps squid and octopuses are in fact, in charge of the planet. I mean this is solid gold TKIOF, of that there can be no doubt. Later, Sam freaks out about oysters and raw pork while James is concerned about youth calcium intake. What more do you want?!
