Top Banana playlist – Week 8

- RINSE IT OUT!!!

ape

Another fine effort last night, folks – we packed so many of you into the Union that we simply couldn't admit another single soul. Alright!!!

As noted on the previous entry, we apologise sincerely for chuffing up the Pounder result this week, Maximo Park must have had a late surge which resulted in it closing a massive lead from Chumbawamba during the event itself! It's gone through as the defending champion to next week's vote, and we promise to play it on Monday even if it doesn't win this time around…

February 20, 2006

All is finally revealed…

Well, we kept you all waiting for long enough – and for those of you who weren't there last Monday, here's how the story unfolded…

CARTER & TARBS' EBAY ADVENTURE

carts
While bidding on the legendary JCB, it becomes apparent that we're going head-to-head with a mother determined to have this hallowed piece of kit for her young one. Unfortunately for her, we've got a budget much bigger than hers, and every time she desperately attempts to up the ante by adding another quid to the kitty, we counter by lobbing in an extra fiver. Here Carts sniggers at yet another cheeky outbidding, because he's just a right bastard. Haha!

tarbs
Victory!!! After a week's worth of hard graft we TAKE HER DOWN with just seconds left to go. Tarbs is, understandably, feeling somewhat elated having got so into it that he ostensibly turned into Ebeneezer Scrooge for 7 days straight. Respect.

jump
- And it's on!!! Carts jumps for joy as he leaves Advance at the thought of being able to mount TOP BANANA'S GREATEST STUNT EVER

BABY
– A bridge too far?! This was the picture we were going to e-mail to the unfortunate parent whose birthday treat had just been wrecked in the name of good old-fashioned student-friendly entertainment…

SEE YOU TONIGHT, KIDS!
