So does Shaun Micallef really use Grindr?

By David Knox on February 15, 2012 / Filed Under Programming 11

Shaun Micallef is up to his usual cheeky stuff in tonight’s episode of Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation.

“Time to hurriedly mute the alert noise on your Grindr app and play our first game,” he declares.

Grindr is a gay-dating phone app. And that’s putting it nicely.

It’s a pretty funny reference in a PG timeslot.

Meanwhile the guests tonight include HG Nelson, Claudia Karvan and Josh Lawson.

Karvan is also asked if there will be any more Spirited.

“Still in there with a chance,” she says.

“Fingers crossed.”

TBYG, which has a Shakespearean themed episode, airs at 8pm tonight on TEN.

    I wonder what the reaction to this show is by the international guests who appear on it. Stephen K Amos, for example, seemed to love it, but I wonder if some come away from it confused at what just happened.

    On a related note, all three of the guests on this episode were high calibre. HG Nelson, Claudia Karvan, and Josh Lawson? Can’t miss.

    Think someone has got a chip on their shoulder.

    Post whatever you like when ever you like David… I read a few times every day and love it. Even catch up on my phone at lunch time. Keep up the good work and “slow news day” stories ;-)

    I keep forgetting this is a personal blog, not to be taken seriously. As you were…

    @steve sydney, I’m pretty sure Amanda knows what Grindr is.

    I wish Charlie was on Grindr

    That’s pretty funny.

    And I do enjoy the laugh, David. I don’t know why people think this site is only news

    I think it’s a great post David

    It’ll be interesting who laughs the hardest.. Charlie with his typical outburst or Josh. I expect Amanda not to get the reference lol

    Eh? I can’t have a bit of fun on me own blog anymore?

    If its a slow news day, I guess I can take the rest of he day off!
