Re: Countdown words spotted in real life

Reading my book on the way to work this morning and this line pleased me:

"what is it? An Indian spirit? Something like a manitou or a wendigo?"

Prior to this I had no idea these words were related and had always thought a manitou was a bird. :oops:

Last night I dreamed I was at Innis and Mark's all night Countdown thing and it was nearing the end because they were both green faced drooling zombies and were declaring 2 letter words.

Judging by the fact that Ryan has uttered the words "I fucking love Graeme Cole" on at least 3 occasions in the last 24 hours, I think he might be interested in this position.
