The High Low has launched merch! Roll up, roll up: berets, sweaters, t-shirts, tote bags and notepads are on sale at www.thehighlowshop.com and 10% of all profits go to Women's Aid. Order by December 18th to get your goodies in time for Christmas.

Today we discuss Boris's prediction for a post-Brexit "bonking bonanza", the brilliant scheme that is Press Pad and (more) global idioms.

Also today, the woman who was chucked off an American Airlines flight for her "offensive" slogan tee, which read 'Hail Satan.' Are words the same as actions? Dolly says no; Pandora thinks that in our scripturient time, they just might be.
