A local priest reveals he has a direct line to God - but simply uses it to have daft banter with the Almighty. A novel interactive mobile phone app gets tested on the streets of Burnistoun with unintended consequences for its inventor, while eating a pizza proves problematic for a Burnistoun man out on a date.

There's also the world premiere of the instructional DVD 'How to Punch A Guy' and tensions are high as two pals argue which one of them can do the best gasp of shock whilst watching a horror film.

Elsewhere in Burnistoun, two brothers clearing out the family loft following the death of their father make a discovery that gives them a real headache.

Also this week, Burnistoun's self-styled 'favourite son' Biscuity Boyle, causes havoc among the puppets on the miniature set of a clay animation TV show.
