Bloody bear

In Collings & Herrin Podcast 133, recorded in a professional BBC studio at 6 Music, but not on it, after our Saturday morning show, is a curious affair, moving inexorably between the Pope, Kenneth Kendall, The Inbetweeners, Dolly the sheep, breast feeding, stoat teeth, Jamie Oliver’s new baby, a partially drawn Jack Black, Richard’s new look, the fact that we are both falling apart, hessian vests, the etiquette of meeting your old tuturs, the etiquette of asking a complete stranger to take your trunks off in the changing rooms and the worrying sight of a red light coming in in the studio partway through the podcast, suggesting perhaps that our words actually went out to the nation. [We’ve sprung this one on Orange Mark, at the weekend, so bear with him.]

    Andrew was right about breastfeeding potentially having improved his stoat teeth, by the way. (Oat milk is still unnatural and foul, however).

    That's nothing to do with the milk itself, though. I think it's true that human milk will have evolved to contain a better balance of nutrients for humans than (for example) cows' milk, which will be balanced for a larger, slower moving, grass grazing mammal. But that article is all about the way the mouth forms in the early years around a bottle sucker rather than a breast.Collings has yet to tell us the other things he was sucking on at that age, so it's not correct to say "twas the bottle what done it". I was breast fed, yet because of my eagerness to fill my mouth I have an over-bite that you could open beer bottles with; any protuberances that came my way were given a good old rasping, I've been told!Clair Edmonds

    I think that it says "red" next to the light cos some people are colour-blind, and hence will see the light but not the colour.Not sure if colourblindness is affected by breast milk. Unless you get some in your eye, which will cause temporary milkiness of vision.I suffer from neither.Andy Race.

    As I understand it, "gay" can also be used as a verb, as in "to gay somebody up". Hence "gayer" often being used to describe a practicing gay.Chris Ratcliffe
