John Finnemore - Awesome!
Anyone else hear the "John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme" (BBC R4) where he did the "awesome" sketch? A female shop assistant thanks a male customer for giving her exactly the right money by saying, "Thanks, that's awesome". He then berates her for exaggerating and tells her that her use of language is awful. She then asks if he is really saying that it fills him not only with some awe but full of the stuff. And adds that he should be more careful about abusing people who are just trying to be pleasant. Yes, OK, it rang a distant bell somewhere.
