This week's episode opens with an address by the Prime Minister which carries shock value.

Other weird and wonderful Burnistoun goings on include misguided entrepreneur, Alex Ciderson, who invents a new way of packaging beer; 'quality polis' McGregor and Toshan gate-crash a party; while pals Peter and Scott find they have a different approach to personal grooming.

The Kilty Club's Herry McLoudery massacres another Scots song and, in another of his legendary home videos, Jolly Boy John displays some unusual ways with pakora.

Also this week, an incompetent taxidermist manages to make rather more than just a pig's ear out of a stuffed dog, enraging one pet-loving Burnistoun resident.

Elsewhere in Burnistoun, another local is driven to distraction by his new talking alarm clock which won't shut up while pub regulars are rendered speechless by the appearance of a drinking pal's new girlfriend.
