Arguing on Good Morning 

Tomorrow on Good Morning—already announced on air by Brendon today—Barry, Paul and I will talk about . The theory among all us fellas is that women are better at it, and hold an encyclopædic knowledge of all our misdeeds.
   We are meant to talk about what we have with our partners, and whether arguing is healthy.
   I have been a bachelor for more years than I have been attached, and since things ’twixt Brigid and me are still new in the grand scheme of things (though if I was and she was , and we at their pace, I would be proposing this month), there hasn’t been any cause for or .
   I imagine we look to our parents as examples, and I can only remember about three instances in 20-plus years where there was some greater disagreement. The chasms lasted about a day each time. I think they knew that arguing is not healthy, and they had a solid enough where the pluses outweighed the minuses considerably.
   I have a funny feeling twice-divorced Barry will rule the airwaves with the things that may have caused his marriage break-ups. I’m such a nice guy, after all, so who would argue with me?

Apparently, we received a few about the “wall of penises” episode. Someone accused Barry of being after he made reference to Steve Gray, a member of the cast, and a quip about prostate exams. Just so viewers know, and from what I can gather between Barry and Steve, that gag was originally raised by Steve in the green room. Even though you don’t see it on air, Steve has the dirtiest mind of the lot of us.
   Therefore, Barry is neither a homophobe nor anti-gay, and the joke was initially Steve’s.

Finally, The Economist can probably end all our programmes if its August 3 article on the different brains of men and women got out. Says it all, really, but without the humour.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
