Where do you draw the line on what food to put in a can? Why was there an explosion of machines with faces in the mid-80s? Just how do they put the faces on the Billy Roll? Why would you send a horse to space? These any many other conundrums tax our minds this week, while Joe tells us about the world’s most generous ATM and we hear about misadventures with fireworks and the rise of the robot hoovers.
The corrupting power of great wealth is on display as Joe outlines his twisted vision for the best way to spend a multi-million quid windfall, while Darren's dreams are maybe more innocent on the surface level, but not without their own sadistic edge. We also have your submissions for apocalypse surviving tactics, sent in to us after last week's episode. Results were mixed, at best.

Questions of reincarnation in the animal world - and a choice between life in the wild and life in captivity - are at the forefront of this week's bonus episode. There's also product development done on the Stall It range of talking dolls, and some deep consideration to why Joe thinks seeing the 17A bus at 4am would be terrifying.

A sudden cataclysmic event has ended civilisation as we know it. All modern comforts and securities are gone and it's every person for themselves. What do you do? Where do you go first? Do you join a tribe or forge ahead alone? Is your best bet to find an island or a remote mountain hideaway? Darren and Joe try to plot their survival plans in a post-apocalyptic world this week, taking them from the mountains of Munster to islands full of strange creatures, to Dunnes in Charlestown Shopping Centre (of course) and even a misguided attempt to hijack a cruise liner.

This week the lads field questions on Joe's hatred of festive joy, talking dogs, trans-Atlantic visitors, and inventions with which to survive in a new and desolate world.

There are two very different versions of z-list celebrity life on display, as Joe schmoozes at awards dinners and backstage after gigs (while offering everyone a picture), but Darren struggles through the glare of reflected fame to go and see a movie... or even get a haircut. The lads dissect the art of small talk, Darren makes a Christmas decoration expedition, and they have (inevitably, some argue) given in to temptation and recorded a novelty single.

Quandaries on journeys through space, time and the deepest oceans are on taxing the lads as they weigh up the pros and cons of being a fish out of water visiting the distant past or far-off future, and get the choice of one (kind of, but not really) super power.
