Talking about subliminal messages there's an old episode of 7SD where Andy and Ken present a very intelligent and talkative parrot that gets kicked out of stage because he kept saying antisemitic abuse. Anyone remember? It was kind of hilarious, embarrassing and sad.

Those Wesleyan kids took double doses. I heard. Most of them thought nothing was working and in a classic move took a double dose. That decision ended up sending them to medical help.

Well, it was more like meta-hilarious. When it happened it was perhaps the most awkward moment in the history of 7SD. Shame it was not televised. I'd had pay to see the face of the parrot keeper.
