Red Dwarf Easter Egg - Backwards Hidden Message in "Backwards" Episode

In the episode "Backwards" in series 3, When the pub owner comes in to give Kryten and Rimmer the sack, part of the long section of backwards speech is actually:

"You are a stupid, square-headed, bald git, aren't you? I ain't pointing at you, I'm pointing at you. But I'm not actually addressing you, I'm addressing the one prat in the country who's bothered to get hold of this recording, turn it round, and actually work out the rubbish that I'm saying. What a poor, sad life he's got!"

I went through that entire episode, and recorded and reversed all the backwards talking... its all pretty funny especially the bit where the crew steal the bike, the owner actually shouts "oy yer robbin' bastards! thats out tandem!" :)

Hilarious! This almost makes me want to be British just so I can figure out what show you're talking about! It would also be nice if I could understand the slang involved... "Prat" he says... biting words...

All you need is the DVD for Series III and goto the bonus disc and select 'Backwards Forwards'. It plays the whole episode the other way around. Also, at the start of the fight, (the end in the broacast version), you can hear someone calling out 'Action'.

It is on either Smeg Ups or Smeg Outs. It's very nice.

Just one Question. What IS Smegs In and Smegs Out? I'd really like to know, but if i never find out that's fine too, cause it sounds too weird for me.

smeg is derived from the word smegma, which is a cheesy substance found behind the foreskin 100% true
