Tea and Jeopardy 04 – A chat with Jennifer Udden

By Emma on May 31, 2013


The fourth episode of Tea and Jeopardy is now live and you can find it here.

This week the brilliant literary agent Jennifer Udden is invited into my tea lair and I reveal my favourite answer to last week’s dilemma.

There’s a question at the end, feel free to leave your answer below but I’m afraid the winner has already been picked. You can find out who it was in episode 5.

    If it’s the same man I have seen, I think the problem is with his eye sight. He may, however, be enacting his own version of Warning by Jenny Joseph.

    I’d say wearing your underwear as outerwear isn’t so much a new fashion, as it’s a throwback to Eighties fashion. Just to make sure, I’d ask the gentleman if he had set his time machine to the correct era. We wouldn’t want him to be lost in the wrong decade!

    Great podcast.

    Well, of course it would be the most polite to avert one’s eyes and pretend that everything is normal. After all, we all have wardrobe malfunctions on occasion.

    Emma, your first mistake was the assumption that they were actually his underpants though obviously establishing ownership would be problematic without accosting him in some form which could be blush worthy for both parties.

    There are two possibilities to look into:
    1). Is the phone box stocked with similar underpants and solicitations to put them on over your clothing? The motives for such a thing are unclear without investigation but we can safely say any such scheme sounds shady at best. Perhaps they confer health benefits to the wearer as part of a government funded initiative to promote the power of flight, heat vision and bullet-proof flesh?
    2). Could the underpants be the physical pawn of a sentient being infiltrating Earth ahead of an invading force and laying the groundwork by unsettling our social fabric with errant undergarment placement?

    I’d suggest letting him get on with his urgent business unhindered but most definitely check that phone box for foul play. Constant vigilance!

    I’m not sure a proper lady would ever mention seeing a man’s… unmentionables. [And I’m reasonably sure you are a proper lady.] However, I will suggest that you try whispering, “XYZ” to him. This is a common code — at least it is here in the U.S. — for “examine your zipper,” used most often when someone has failed to zip up. At any rate, he will surely turn away to check his fly and quickly discover his mistake. You will then likely be treated to seeing him fly away to make wardrobe reparations.
