"As the nations arrived in the stadium, we decided that rather than provide routine audio facts to talk us through, we'd provide legends with real facts on population and history and so forth and then just make some random shit up as we've had a bit to drink..."

"With that in mind, here's Trinidad and Tobago, the only country in the world to be named after a short-lived NBC-produced 1970s detective series..."

Nearby Venezuela, whose name means "dirty little Venice", is so named because it's full of small versions of blokes in stripy tops who pinch lasses' arses, women who sing when they are stabbed and rivers and canals that smell like a brothel's slop bucket. The name was given it by Cecil Rhodes, who went there before his African escapades. He caught a dose after fucking a goat.

"Qatar, the only nation in the world where the death penalty is retained for using the letter 'U'... The last arrests for the same were three years ago where a group of Welsh tourists had smuggled in a number by pronouncing them as "Y"s. They were released when the Qataris realised they couldn't call an enquiry"
