This week Gyles and Susie go tit for tat, giving as good as they get in hurling some creative insults at each other. From the Shakespearean to the sublime they relish in finding out the origins behind calling someone a ‘fopdoodle’, a ‘dandyprat’, and a ‘mugwump’. And, ahead of this week’s General Election, Susie revisits a couple of choice political insults for you to slip into any debates that might arise. A Somethin’ Else production.

Susie’s Trio:

APANTHROPY - the desire to be left alone

PUNT - the dint in the bottom of a wine bottle

SUNWAKE - the reflection of a sunrise on the surface of the sea
