Stephen Fry: Yeah. You close your eyes; we’ll let the audience and everyone at home see some more sounds being made. See if you can see what these are.

Stephen Fry: And what was that?
Alan Davies: Someone pretending to be a horse.
Emma Thompson: It’s a horse clapping.
David Mitchell: I mean, I think that sounds exactly like some coconut shells, by the sounds of it.
Stephen Fry: You’re so cynical!
David Mitchell: I just think that’s a two legged horse, wearing some awkward shoes.
Stephen Fry: Don’t you think it sounds like a horse?
Stephen Fry: So, despite what you may have heard on Radio Four’s programme presented by David Mitchell . . . What’s your programme called?
David Mitchell: The Unbelievable Truth. One of the unbelievable truths turns out, unbelievably, to be not true.
Stephen Fry: You claimed . . .
David Mitchell: Yeah, people give you this shit and you read it out!
Stephen Fry: I’ve no idea what you mean!
Stephen Fry: I made an Oscar. I actually made a genuine Oscar. I went to the factory in Chicago where they were made.
David Mitchell: I’m not being rude, but if I was winning an Oscar this year, I’d say, “Can I have one of the ones made by the professionals, rather than that one Stephen Fry ballsed up?”
