I loved the first one, so I can't wait to listen to this one. If you could get Mark Watson and/or Greg Davies to play, I'd be forever... your girl? That sentence went badly wrong.

International Waters is on Facebook, and you should LIKE IT!

That was some wonderful bad rap.

I haven't listened yet, but I liked the first episode.

One idea I thought would be cool would be to have Canadian and Australian teams as well. Never more than two teams at once, naturally, but it could be fun to see England face off against it's three major colony children, and there's certainly a lot of talent to be found in Australia and Canada's comedy communities.

I know the logistics of even doing a two-country showdown are probably ridiculous. Just pipe-dreamin'.

That Mr. Meth/Wu-Tang Clan cut was joyous. Mov-in on your LEFT.

Jesse, I will forever be a fan of you slyly referencing hip hop lyrics at unexpected times/places. It legitimately makes me happy to hear someone besides me do things like this.

I loved that Jesse took the opportunity to re-use his 'You gotta admit, that's a lot of luftballons' tweet.

Colin, here's what I want less of: Not having new episodes of International Waters to listen to. Here's what I want more of: New episodes of International Waters. Come on, Maximum Fun monthly pledge! Do your stuff!

I'd love to hear Stephen Fry on the program but, ha ha, good luck making that happen. More attainable maybe: Paul Merton? Aisha Tyler? Maria Bamford?

Anyone want to write us some "Super Geek" questions on their subject of specialist fandom?

I am loving, absolutely LOVING this show. I am kind of a UK / US quiz show nerd in general (love both Wait Wait and BBC's The News Quiz), so this is like manna from heaven. Jesse, I don't know how you have the time to do everything you do for Max Fun unless you've cloned yourself, but whatever you've done, keep it up!

DC Pierson was my favorite on this episode solely for knowing the "my hat is like a shark's fin" line.

Keep up the great work, Jesse! (Or Jesse's clone!)

I would be happy to write some Pro Wrestling questions, if that interests you. How many would you need, and what format should they be in?

Yes please, Doidy! Could you do us 8 questions and e-mail them to iw(at)maximumfun.org? You might need to make them quite easy Pro-wrestling questions... and any chance of including some on British wrestling?
