And I'm drunk!

It's happy hour again, and again, and again.  
It's happy hour again, and again, and again.  
It's happy hour agaaaaaiiiiiiiin.

Whooooo-ha!

What the hell does "Got Blue Peter to make an appeal" mean?

Blue Peter is not a cold penis, rather a UK children's TV magazine style show that has been on for years.

Every year they hold a Blue Peter Appeal, where they get kids to raise money by holding yard sales, running backwards for 6 miles, baking and selling cakes etc., for a chosen good cause (the starving in Ethiopia, for example).

Hope this answers your question,

Well that makes sense.  For years I thought it was "God blew Peter to stage an appeal" #-o

Damn, I haven't listened to them since high school. London O Hull 4 (is that even right) was a favorite of mine.

Hard to imagine Fatboy Slim in that band, innit?

My major score last year when I went to England was finding The Housemartins video for 50p at Cash Converters. Rock!
