Not long after Mark Geyer [MG] from Triple M came in for his first SleepTight Treatment at the Specialist Clinics of Australia, he chatted to the Grill Team about it. One thing led to another and before you know it, the boys started a trip down memory lane about the ‘Snoring Olympics’ they featured on their show a while back. Watch the video or read the transcript below to hear what happens:
MG: Boys… I’ve got a confession to make.
GT2:What’s happened mate? What have you done?
MG: My snoring has started to cause some troubles at home…
GT1: oh dear…
GT2: Just with the missus in the bedroom? or?
MG: No – just with me
GT1: Did she leave you?
MG: No… she’d never leave me! My soul mate…
GT2: Oh, he’s talking his missus up – she must be listening?
GT1: Morning Megs!
MG: Yesterday I went to a place in George St called The Facial Rejuvenation Clinic
MG: Yeah – well what they actually do is put a laser down the back of your throat which stops you from snoring. It tightens up the collagen in the back of your throat. So – I’ve got to get another three treatments, but I want to try to stop my snoring. As you get older, your snoring gets worse…
GT1: More drinking as well.
MG: Yeah, they said that – the more you drink, the worse it is as well.; the worse your snoring is. So…
So, it’s the mouth rather than the nose, is it?
MG: Yes! ‘Cause I can’t breath through one of my nostrils because of the footy injuries, so I though it might have been that. So, I’ll let you know how it goes.
GT1: So – it’s your throat flapping away is it that makes the snoring noise? They have to tighten it up?
GT2: That dangley thing
GT2: Oh… the dangley thing…
GT: You know, it takes me back, boys. Do you remember we used to do the Snoring Olympics?
MG: They were the funniest things ever!
GT1: Let’s go back and have a look at some of our funniest ones from all time. Firstly, we’ve heard of a talking horse, Mr Ed, but a snoring horse? [sound of house snoring] That’s an actual horse snoring! Now this next one, if you liked that one of the horse, have a listen to a Grill Team listener Brian..
GT2: And this is a human?
[Sound of Brian snoring]
GT2: It’s like a piddly 50 motorbike!
MG: Now, he sounds like he has a little bit of sleep apnoea…
GT2: Oh, so you’re a snoring expert now?? [they all laugh]. You’ve had one appointment for half an hour, and you’re telling us…
GT1: So if you’re listening Brian – there you go! No last, but definitely no least, we received this one from Simon [sound of Simon snoring] oh… so wet!
GT2: It’s like a dragtser
GT1: He has the footy on in the background! oh… that’s enough!
MG: You know what that last one sounded like? It sounded like a bike, when you put a footy card with a peg on the back wheel and it goes tick-tick,tick,tick-tick… that’s what that sounded like
GT2: What are you talking about???
MG: You wouldn’t have done that, ’cause you weren’t in the fibros – but us fibros used to do that
GT1: Yeah – so I do remember that!
[they all laugh]
